Bad Love – Episode 9

It’s only episode 9 and Yong-gi is confessing his undying love for In-jung. After watching this episode and the short clips at the end, i feel that there will be lots of rocky terrain to follow through before these two love birds finally get together – happily ever after. Ah…tis ok, it’s all bearable ONLY because of KSW. 😉

An injured Kang Yong-gi (Kwon Sang-woo) runs after Na In-jung‘s (Lee Yo-won) bus. He does not give up chasing and she caves in. He wins…this time, but this will not stop her for trying to run away again…and again.

Kang Yong-gi is determined not to let his girlfriend go…


Yong-gi runs after her bus and In-jung
tries to stick to her
guns but she cannot bear
seeing one as dashing
as Kwon Sang-woo running
after her. She finally
starts crying like a baby and caves in.
Yong-gi will not take no for an answer…

After stitching up his injured head and a full MRI scan, Yong-gi is certified OK.

Ouch ouch…watch it nurse…please be gentle.


You are OK Sang-woo sshi, please try not to run after
buses and do your own stunts on dramas again- get a stunt double.

Yong-gi and In-jung are in limbo. They don’t know where to go – they get some food to eat and Yong-gi is afraid that his girlfriend might run away from him again. He holds her hand at all times and even tries not to sleep.

Yong-gi and In-jung have an “unacceptable” relationship
going on…they do not know where to go.


Despite that, Yong-gi does not want to let In-jung go.
He holds on to her hand – even while eating.


He tries not to sleep…


Well the moment he gets some shut eye, In-jung attempts to run away again. He catches up with her, and comes to the decision that they bring their relationship out in the open. Yong-gi wants to confess that In-jung was once Su-hwan’s lover…to his parents. He wants to bring it all out in the open. No more running away. No more hiding. No more guilt!

What are you trying to do to me woman!
Do i need to smack you on the head to
knock some sense into you?

On their way to Yong-gi’s dad’s house, they meet Lee Su-hwan (Kim Sung-su). Yong-gi leaves In-jung in front of the house while he has a word with his brother-in-law. In-jung catches a glimpse of Kang Joo-ran and she goes weak in the knees. She realises that she cannot possibly face Su-hwan and his family. She runs off and pleads Yong-gi not to confront his family, for she cannot bear it.

They meet Su-hwan on the way to Yong-gi’s dad’s house


In-jung pleads with Yong-gi not to confess all.
She cannot bear to face Su-hwan and
his wife Joo-ran.

Poor Yong-gi is exasperated, but he will do anything for the woman he loves. He decides to take In-jung far away from all the complications and leave for the States immediately. He makes plans to leave the very next day.


Yong-gi makes arrangements to go to the US,
while In-jung thinks up a plan of her own.

Meanwhile, Su-hwan returns after a time of soul searching and has decided to firmly resign from his father-in-law’s construction company. His father-in-law accepts his resignation – “If this is what you want, i will accept your resignation”.

His wife Joo-ran is alarmed by Su-hwan’s decision, because this would mean, he no longer has any reason to remain married to her.

Su-hwan checks into a hotel. He views photos of his wife and driver friend and knows of their affair.

At home, Joo-ran is anxious and wants to talk to her husband. She calls him and they agree to meet for drinks at the hotel.

Of all the hotels in Seoul, Su-hwan and Yong-gi checks into the very same one! (Gee…that’s really hard to believe.)

Don’t worry, i will not leave you.
If i do, i will be punished. Dead or alive,
i will only be thinking of you.
So get some sleep honey.

In-jung blatantly lies to Yong-gi that she will not leave him anymore. Instead of going to the sauna, she sneaks out to meet Yong-gi’s dad while he is asleep. She confesses all to Yong-gi’s dad and plans to leave Yong-gi after that.

Yong-gi’s dad is livid and says “You ruined my whole family, and now, you want to leave Yong-gi and let me pick up the pieces?”

It’s a family affair…

At that moment, Joo-ran and Su-hwan enters the restaurant and Joo-ran sees In-jung. Upon recognizing In-jung, Joo-ran raises her hand to hit her but her husband prevents her from doing so. Yong-gi’s dad is angry to see Su-hwan protecting In-jung – still. He leaves, and is seen to be having some health problems.

Poor Yong-gi wakes up, oblivious to all that has happened.

    Sorry I have to post in drips and draps.
    I particularly liked this two parts:

    1)Injung said she cannot eat without her right hand – so funny !!

    2) Yong-gi collapsing from exhaustion and pain onto Injung;s lap on the bus. Out of raw emotion, she decides to accept him again.

    Gosh, I just finished watching ep 10 today. i can understand why some cynics say the plot sucks. I wanna see how the writers get themselves out of the corner they have made for themselves.

    There are too many twists and waaaay too much melodrama – just the way I like it ; )

    I love yong-gi but isnt his love a little too possessive?

  • January 29, 2008 at 3:47 pm

    Sukwan wants to divorce his wife because he wants to go back to Injung. What a snake.

    NA Injung will be left by Yonggi and then she would need to case after him. See how it goes then! Silly woman.

    Hi Anonymous who watches the drama without English subs. Glad you like the recaps! It encourages me to carry on with the future episodes to come. 🙂

    Actually yesterday’s episode was quite irritating for me. Why does In-jung keep wanting to leave? 왜? 왜? Sigh. Then when i logged on to do this entry, for some weird reason, i can’t find as many screen caps of episode 9 online as for the other episodes. Maybe people got so irritated with this particular episode that they did not want to post the screen caps. That got me even more irritated. No screencaps!

    Anyway, it might seem that Yong-gi and In-jung’s relationship is tilted to one side – Yonggi loves In-jung more. Just like what he illustrated on the see-saw. But i would like to believe that In-jung does indeed love Yonggi. She shows her love differently. She wants to run away to save him from hurting in the future. She wants to tell Yong-gi’s dad all so that at least someone would look into Yonggi when she leaves.

    I also believe that Yonggi’s display of affection was not all in vain. In-jung observes and keeps all this in her heart…for future. (She better!!!!!!!) hahahah or else…

    i really got soo emo last nite..
    dang… i dun understand this girl injung, she keeps on pushing oppa away and oppa keep running after her..if only she had some courage..*sigh*

  • January 29, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    Wow.. this post is so quick, it came before i had time to gather my thoughts

    All i can now is ep 9 was such an emo-roller coaster! At times, i thought my heart was going to fail because of the number of times Injung changes her mind!!

    She really shot herself in the foot at the end of the ep, why oh why didn’t she just leave with Yong-gi ??? SO close yet so far away. URGH !!!

    Hi, I just want to say how much i appreciate you taking the time to write about this Drama. I am so addicted to this Drama but I have no way of watching them all in English Subs. I love the way you organized the discussion and making it easier to understand the series. Thank you! =)

    i missed it, again! >_< *hadtowentout*
    okay, so Yong Gi went all out for his love for In Jung, but she was being reluctant?
    come on, just go strong and bear with it! go to US, and live happily ever after, THE END. phewh.

    and please, Su Hwan needs to get a divorce with Joo Ran.
    and live on your own!
    just love In Jung silently,
    or get a new love life or something.
    but then, how about the daughter? herm…

    thanks for the review! 😉

    I really hated In-Jung in this episode. she’s soooo mean to KSW which breaks my heart into a million little pieces. i still dont get why she “can’t” be with him.
