My heart ached so much during Wednesday’s ep!  Thankfully, the EPIC ending more than made up for it!

Per usual, Daewoong-focused recap… I am so in love with Woong-ah!

DW goes ballistic after evil Noona, pretending to be MH, forcefully kisses DW. This passing of “ki” causes MH to faint and she falls down from the scaffolding. Fortunately she lands on a mattress but has been knocked unconscious.  DW runs to her side and cradles her, calling out to her.

The Director yells for an ambulance but DW tries to convince him that he knows MH’s health situation and she doesn’t need to go to the hospital.  While everyone’s trying to figure out what to do, MH has been laid down in a side room. Soon, a vengeful MH wakes up and goes to hunt down evil Noona.

MH finds her and with the look of death in her eyes tells Noona to “DIE!” DW finds MH and sees that MH is transforming.  Worried for her, DW pleads with MH to stop but she isn’t having it and throws DW aside really hard!

MH looks like she’s about to kill Noona when DW rushes in and full body hugs MH from behind telling her she can’t do this. Noona runs away and DW then turns MH around, hugging her tightly saying that he’s so sorry. (OMG, so so sweet!)

MH feels horrible towards DW. She realizes she can’t control herself and not only was she close to killing Noona, she could have physically hurt DW even more. DW says this is all his fault. They’re both feeling terrible. DW tells MH to stay put and goes to find her ring.

Back at the apt, DW is waiting for MH. She shows up and says she realized she can’t just live for DW forever, that she’s going to work and become educated like that of a human. DW, still not knowing that MH will become human in 100 days, tells her that he will buy meat for her and provide for her. But MH tells him to just take care of her bead for the rest of the 100 days and she can look after herself. This whole scene totally broke my heart. DW-loving MH is now so totally cold towards him. So sad.


DW thinks MH is acting this way because Noona kissed him and that he wanted it.  DW tells her he had nothing to do with it to which MH says she believes him. But says she understand that DW could never love her…

MH: “You don’t like another woman, but you can’t love me. And you can provide me with meat but can’t give me your heart. I realized that fact for sure today. That I am a gumiho and that expecting you to like me is wrong.”

MH says she doesn’t want to be a burden to DW and that she will leave him after the 100 days.  Upset, DW says fine, leave after 100 days and storms out. But then returns to tell MH that he found out she told Vet everything about their contract. Jealous and mad, he demands to know if MH will go to the Vet after the 100 days. MH tells DW not to ask about the Vet, which of course gets DW even more super mad and jealous.

Agh, these scenes were just so heartbreaking, like I felt it all too! MH has no clue that DW loves her and so she doesn’t tell him the truth that she will become human.  And DW can’t let himself love MH because she’s not human and he doesn’t know that she will become one in 100 days! So sad.

DW goes back to look for the ring again.

All of a sudden he feels sharp chest pain.

Thinking it might be associated with MH and worried that something happened to her, he runs home to hear her screaming in pain. He’s locked out so he kicks down the door and finds MH passed out. He runs to the Vet to get medicine.  He feeds MH medicine and falls asleep by her side holding her hand. Aw, so incredibly sweet.

DW wakes up the next morning and hears MH talking to the Vet by phone, thanking him for the medicine. Jealous and also hurt, DW tells MH he’s the one that went and got the meds and it was him that stayed by her side all night taking care of her. MH says she knows and leaves to film the movie again and when DW says he’ll go with her, she rushes out and says not to. MH runs out crying, reminding herself she has to slowly pull away from DW. So sad.

DW thinks about MH the whole time while she’s out. He plans to take her to a place in Seoul, similar to the Cameroon looking location in the camcorder poster.

But MH is at the Vet’s place. He gets Grandpa, who happens to have dropped by, to call MH to come home so they can all eat out together.

MH shows up and DW wants to take her to that special place he found, but she coldly suggests that they just eat dinner at home instead since she has a lot of work to finish up. She is so cold towards DW. Totally breaks my heart.

DW sits around just watching her from afar, trying to talk to her. MH ignores him.  Finally, he begs MH to at least glance at him.  She does.

He runs downstairs with the camcorder poster and says that he’s found an identical looking spot in Seoul. He says they can take a picture there just like in the poster and stick their photo on the poster too. So cute. They’re both excited and make plans to go the next day….

But then MH comes back to her senses and becomes cold again and says she has plans. Upset, DW walks out.  Later DW finds the identification papers that Vet prepared for her, but doesn’t know the details…

He runs to find her per the text message from the Vet. Vet has taken MH out for a birthday meal, to celebrate her becoming Park Sun Joo, but MH is not thrilled about being with Vet. Hello, she’s in love with DW. Dude, she doesn’t like you Vet. He to me is more evil than Noona because he knows how much DW and MH love each other and is continually trying to pull them apart.

DW and MH miss each other by a split second. This elevator scene totally reminded me of that scene from Hong Sisters’ My Girl.  DW sees the Vet and confronts him with the ID papers.  Vet says, like MH, he is not human, and that he knew everything from the start.  DW thinks that MH plans to go make a life with the Vet after the 100 days. I hate the Vet more than Noona!

Sad DW goes to the special place that he had planned to take MH; the place that looks identical to the location in the poster. He admits out loud that he does like MH…

And MH who’s also come to see the special spot hears DW say this.

He sees her and tells her that he does want her and wants her to stay by his side, even if she’s not human and even if this all seems crazy.

Hearing those magical words, MH tells DW that she will become human soon. DW and MH share a sweet hug! Finally! Was feeling major heartache throughout the whole ep with the two of them being so cold to one another.

Back at the rooftop apt. Since it’s MH’s birthday as Park Sun Joo, DW sings her the special the Hoi Hoi song… to MH’s delight!

DW: Over here, Ho~ Ho~ Even seeing it that way~ Just can’t understand~ Miho~ Miho~ My friend Miho is~ a cute gumiho~ Hoi~ Hoi~ Miho is my awesome friend. Hoi~ Hoi~ Miho is~
MH: Whom I like~ Whom I like~
DW: My “Yuh-Chin” that I like. (Yuh-Chin: abbreviated/cute version of girlfriend)
MH: Hoi~ Hoi~ But, what is a “Yuh-Chin”?

DW answers with a Kiss! OMFG! Seunggi’s new OST song plays in the background!

And a play by play for those who can’t get enough. One of the best kisses. So sweet!

Please, let there be more sweet moments like this and less heartache. I thought my heart was going to burst while watching this ep and seeing DW and MH so cold towards one another. Please continue the happy and lovable Daewoong and Miho.

As for the ratings, I think we will be in this range for the rest of the drama. It may go up a tiny bit after Baker King ends, but it’s hard for the typical tv viewer to come into a sci-fi like trendy, romantic comedy drama like this when we’re already in the latter half. Also, it’s like everyone in Korea wants to see Baker King reach 50% ratings.

16 eps just don’t seem to be enough. And even though the ratings aren’t that important anymore, especially with the love and critical praise the drama’s received – It definitely feels a bit weird to see one of Seunggi’s shows have only a little above 10% ratings.  But I’m sure he wouldn’t trade playing the role of Cha Dae Woong for the world! What guy wouldn’t want to play a guy where a girl like MiHo is all over you the entire time?! LOL. Expecting to see more kisses between Daewoong and Miho…

  1. the rating might go up if those who likes BK family-oriented drama are not interested in the type of drama that is taking over it.

    it’s hard to imagine viewers who likes BK will like the next drama replacing it.. it’s 2 different genres.. so hopefully they will switch to SBS and watch MGIAG…

  2. Omg, Daewoong ah, I’m losing my mind!

  3. omg guys, my heart still feels like it’s going to burst even when thinking about this ep. i can’t stop loving their sweet kiss.

    can’t wait to see what’s in store for thursday’s ep! Vet is really making me mad. he’s more evil than noona b/c he knows DW and MH love each other and he’s trying to pull them apart. please don’t meddle Vet.

    who else wants that type of kiss from woong-ah (aka Seunggi)????!!! :)

  4. omo!!! i’m trembling like crazy inside and out!!! i think i’m going to faint!!! ~0~

    i’m losing my mind over the hoi~hoi kiss shared by daewoong and miho!!! ^0^
