This has gotta be my favourite episode to date! Kwon Sang-woo’s character Yong-gi is the perfect boyfriend – he takes his new girlfriend shopping, buys her food and they both look so cute together. Lots of lovey dovey sweet stuff happening as they get to know each other. Plus Yong-gi has such great romantic lines. If you missed episode 6 of this Korean drama…it’s really a shame, but no worries, there are lots of drama stills below to fill you in. So are you ready?
In episode 5, Kang Yong-gi (Kwon Sang-woo) confessed that he likes Na In-jung (Lee Yo-won), but they have the baggage of their past relationships. At night, Yong-gi sleeps and is haunted by recurring nightmares of his ex-girlfriend Kim Jo-ann.
Jo-ann comes across as very needy and depends on Yong-gi a lot. She finally succumbed to suicide after many many attempts.
Fed-up of being held by this guilt and wanting to break free, Yong-gi burns the tree he labeled “Kim Jo-ann’s tree” to signify that he no longer wants to be captive of a past that haunts him.
The next morning, Yong-gi purposefully went to In-jung and brought her to show her evidence of his conviction – the burnt tree. He will look only to the future and their new relationship. Yong-gi convinces In-jung to give their relationship a chance and do so as well.
In-jung and Yong-gi discover each other and spend more time together in the little town of Samcheok. Samchun and samchun’s girlfriend are both very happy for them.

Meanwhile, Yong-gi’s stepmother gets word that Yong-gi has a new girlfriend. Maybe she has spies at Samcheok. Stepmother now wants to see who this new lady is…who knows, she might be her new daughter-in-law.
They meet at a cafe and Yong-gi appears impatient and wants to leave immediately, but In-jung reasons that Stepmother has not finished talking. Stepmother is pleased at this… (They both are so great together and calms each other down when needed.) Stepmother invites them over to dinner to celebrate Yong-gi’s father’s birthday.
After meeting with In-jung twice, you see the “shell of a man” Su-hwan drinking himself into a stupor and going to the noraebang (karaoke) to belt sorrowful tunes all alone. (At this point, Liz exclaims…why did they give Kim Sung-su such a silly character?) With all the shenanigans, his wife Joo-ran is beginning to get suspicious.
Now comes the exciting part…Yong-gi and In-jung drives into the city to attend Yong-gi’s father’s birthday dinner. First they stop by a mall to get presents for Yong-gi’s mom and dad. [More pictures on the shopping trip in a previous entry – KSW is the perfect boyfriend.]
and my father. My parents will love you.
Yong-gi brings his new girlfriend home, unsuspecting anything amiss. In-jung has no clue or inkling that Yong-gi is Su-hwan’s (her ex-lover) brother-in-law. Su-hwan will be attending the dinner, but his wife and daughter are away on a skiing trip.
not expect to see him at Yong-gi’s parent’s home.
Clueless Yong-gi is just happy to show his girlfriend off.
How do you think In-jung and Su-hwan will react? Will they pretend not to know each other? Would they let bygones be bygones? Do you think Su-hwan is jealous seeing his brother-in-law with the woman he once loved (or still loves)…?
