OMG OMG OMG! Haircut. Hotness. It's Eun Shi-kyung! I mean, no, Jo Jung-seok, no, I mean, HOTNESS.

My brain seriously fried seeing his new haircut.

Oooooh, you want to hear about the episode? Oh, okay. Things are moving along pretty quickly now. Thank god for no more set up. 22 episodes of that crap is enough.

AGB Nielsen Nationwide had this episode coming in at 23.8%.

"Lee Soon-sin is the Best" is directed Yoon Seong-sik by and written by Jeong Yoo-kyeong and features IU, Jo Jung-suk, Go Doo-shim and Lee Mi-sook.

Episode 23 recap

Mi-ryeong, the reluctant mommy, escapes her hospital bed and chases after Soon-shin, who, at the moment, is returning to the hospital to return Mi-ryeong's script. They catch sight of each other, and gaze at each other; Mi-ryeong with longing, Soon-shin with confusion. Before anything can happen, Hwang and Yeon-ah come to drag Mi-ryeong back to bed, preventing her from talking to Soon-shin, which she desperately wants to do.

Hwang wonders what Mi-ryeong was going to say to Soon-shin.

Yeah, I this rate, the truth is coming out soon. There is only so long the leaking truth will tide before bursting. And Soon-shin is going to be smacked in the face.

Granny remembers a conversation near the beginning of the show where Jung-ae asked about Kyung-sook, the woman in Chang-hoon's graduation photo and guesses that Kyung-sook is Soon-shin's birthmother. Granny approaches Jung-ae with her hypothesis, which Jung-ae fervently denies. She swears left and right that she is fine and doesn't want to know the truth - she wants to ignore it.

'Cause that worked SO well before.

Soon-shin's arrival cuts the conversation short. She heads upstairs and takes a peek at Mi-ryeong's script, the same script that she had studied for her audition and supposes the older woman felt sorry for her.

At Mi-ryeong's place, Yeon-ah tears Hwang a new one for not arriving early enough to care for Mi-ryeong. Yeon-ah insists on staying to care for Mi-ryeong, but Mi-ryeong snaps at her to leave her be.


Granny invites Jung-ae to the mineral spring to get some exercise and fresh air. Soon-shin suggests that they all go together, but Woo-joo and Yoo-shin can't go. Granny keeps trying to push for some alone time with Jung-ae, mostly definitely so that she can pump her daughter-in-law for information. Hye-shin comes to the rescue and suggests a family picnic with those who can go much to Granny's chagrin.

Soon-shin catches Yoo-shin primping and stares after her curiously. The same thing happens at Chan-woo's with him and his mother. He lies that he's going to see friends and gives his mom her credit card to go shopping, winning her over.

He heads out to pick up Soon-shin who urges him to quickly get out of the neighborhood so her family won't catch them. He is decidedly unhappy with her behavior.

I don't like it either.

AND THEN....*SQUEEEEEEEEEE* Jo Jung-seok with a new haircut. He looks like he did in King 2 Hearts as Eun Shi-kyung. *drool* Hotness. Can't think straight.

What was I doing?

OMG hot...


Soo-jung asks HOT Joon-ho if Mi-ryeong said anything to him. She was very rude to Soo-jung at Yi-jung's birthday dinner. Soo-jung is surprised Mi-ryeong hasn't apologized and Joon-ho advises her to drop it. Then she asks him if he got a haircut and he smiles.


Seriously, there's nothing that says broken heart like a new haircut. And this is one sexay broken heart. Now where's the guitar and the singing.

Mi-ryeong broods over a simple meal, acting all sick over a situation she put herself in. Then she gets a call from Soo-jung, who can't let Mi-ryeong's rude behavior go after all. She sits in the living room beside Dong-hyuk who hears how indignant Soo-jung is and how harshly she scolds Mi-ryeong. Then, Soo-jung idiodically pushes the same point again: get married and have kids. It'll fix your life.

Okay, I get that Soo-jung is trying to help, and it really DOES help to have someone in your life to lean on, but the woman has no social savvy, or noonchi, as a certain awesome person  on the Dramabeans forum taught me. Maybe that's where Joon-ho gets it from...or...y'know, doesn't get it.

Mi-ryeong half-heartedly apologizes several times. Then she hangs up on a shocked Soo-jung who is even MORE surprised to hear Dong-hyuk defend Mi-ryeong.

More broody Mi-ryeong. *yawn* She goes out for a walk.

Really? How contrived. You know who she's gonna meat up with.

Soon-shin and her family are enjoying their picnic. Soon-shin misses her father and wishes he was there. Granny nearly gives the secret away and then sobs about her son's death and his supposed betrayal.

They leave, laughing and arms linked, only to come across Mi-ryeong. Soon-shin asks after her health and the other three stare her down. Mi-ryeong quickly begs her leave and Granny starts getting really suspicious. Hye-shin wisely hurries them home.

You know what's wise? Telling Soon-shin the truth. Just sayin'. In any case, we know it's gonna come out soon.

Mi-ryeong tells Hwang to put the house up for sale and I'm wishing the woman would just make up her mind and stop flip-flopping in her decisions.

Hye-shin is surprised that Mi-ryeong lives in their neighborhood and Jung-ae asks her to keep it a secret from Granny.

More secrets?

Chan-woo is practically wiggling in his chair as he frets over his relationship with Yoo-shin. She's trying to adorably feed him dessert and stops when Chan-woo asks if they can tell their families about them - it's tiring to hide. She quickly reminds him about their contract and about how much his mom dislikes her. Chan-woo thinks his mom would understand, but Yoo-shin tells him how judgemental his mom has been lately.

And then jealousy rears its ugly green head. Where were you that night? Cue nervous response, "My director invited me to his house. We just had dinner " We all know the truth about that is coming out at the most inopportune moment.

Yoo-shin asks Soon-shin why their mom looks so depressed and Soon-shin tells her that they met Mi-ryeong. That doesn't answer the question though as both sisters are out of the super top secret birth secret loop. Yoo-shin thinks Jung-ae got depressed because Mi-ryeong is so pretty and Soon-shin defends their mother as being the prettier woman.

Stop lying child.
