AGB Nielsen Nationwide had this episode coming in at 25.6%.Episode 49 recap
Soon-shin wakes up in bed with a bad feeling as Mi-ryeong walks towards the water. The next morning, the news covers Mi-ryeong's disappearance. Granny has the t.v. turned off and bad mouths Mi-ryeong. She mourns Chang-hoon and Soon-shin feels terrible.
Then, reporters disturb the set of Soon-shin's drama and won't leave until Soon-shin shows up. The director kindly asks her to leave for the day and reschedules her scenes for another time. She apologizes and then leaves with reporters on her heels. In-sung smartly gets her out of the fray quickly.
In the car, In-sung says it better that people pity Soon-shin instead of turn on her. It's a relief that Mi-ryeong disappeared - it takes the heat off of her.
Hwang goes to Joon-ho to ask for help in finding Mi-ryeong. He's really worried about her because of how harsh he was with her. He hasn't been able to find her at her normal haunts. Joon-ho suggests waiting for her to make contact - she's isolating herself on purpose.
Then Joon-ho has to go meet with the investors who are not happy with the Mi-ryeong scandal.
Soon-shin broods and worries about Mi-ryeong. She doesn't have to do it alone anymore, though. Joon-ho comes to sit beside her. After he asks about her, she asks after him and the company. D'aw. He assures her this isn't the first time for him and that he'll be okay. She apologizes and he puts his arm around her and places her head on his shoulder. He wants to cuddle just for a moment. Taking her hand, he tells her to cheer up.
That was cute. That's what a boyfriend is for!
As Hwang leaves the agency he gets a call from Yeon-ah who is frantic with worry. Hwang, however, really doesn't give Yeon-ah the time of day. He reminds her of her threats and leaves her.
Young-hoon comes to pick up the pieces. Yeon-ah starts to cry, but stops herself because Mi-ryeong is Soon-shin's mom, not hers. Well….yeah.
The Ex calls Hye-shin to tell her he's going back to Hong Kong the next day. He is too ashamed to say goodbye to Woo-joo in person and wants Hye-shin to tell her. Woo-joo overhears and Hye-shin offers to take her to say goodbye. The answer is "no".
Hye-shin meets with Jin-wook to tell him about the Ex going back to Hong Kong and that Woo Joo doesn't want to say goodbye to him. Hye-shin is worried Woo Joo got really hurt, but Jin-wook thinks she'll bounce back. He asks if they found a suspect, but they haven't yet.
The case is weighing heavily on Yoo-shin who worries Chan-woo with how tired she sounds on the phone. She heads home and gets an earful from Gil-ja who has returned to a messy house and blames Soon-shin's ineptitude as a homemaker. Gil-ja thinks that she should quit if she can't keep the house neat for her husband. Yoo-shin defends herself and says she's trying; then she storms into her room, on the verge of tears.
Bok-man confronts Gil-ja who says that Yoo-shin isn't the only tired one. Two seconds later, Chan-mi comes in and tells them about what happened with Mi-ryeong and they figure out why Yoo-shin has been so upset. Gil-ja feels like glorified dog poo. Heh.
Chan-woo gets to comfort Yoo-shin as she cries her frustration out over Gil-ja and her father's death. She's pretty desolate and decides to crawl under the covers and cry it out. Sometimes you just need to.
The next morning she heads out and is still pretty subdued. Gil-ja demands to know why she didn't explain why she was so down yesterday, but she can only apologize and leave.
Hye-shin tries to get Woo-joo to say goodbye to her father, but she refuses. Granny overhears and intervenes in her obnoxious way: blaming Jin-wook. Hye-shin doesn't have the guts to defend herself and it is Woo-joo who cuts off Granny's tirade and defends her mother. She says the Ex is going to Hong Kong to see his girlfriend and tells Granny not to be mean to Hye-shin anymore. Granny changes her tune and badmouths the Ex and while she's blabbing, Woo-joo leaves in tears.
Jin-wook sees Woo-joo passing the bakery and catches her, knowing she'll hurt more if she doesn't say goodbye. He manages to convince her to "help" him by bribing her with sorbet. Of course, the sorbet isn't what does it, but she doesn't want to turn her beloved ahjussi down.
Granny rambles about how she sucks and her life sucks and how everything is her fault, even Mi-ryeong's bad life. She was mean to her when she was young.
Hye-shin reports that Jin-wook took Woo-joo to the airport, shocking Jung-ae. Woo-joo is also shocked and is only convinced when Jin-wook gets down on one knee and convinces her to go. He was too scared to see his grandmother when he was in jail and didn't know she was sick at the time. He regrets it and doesn't want her to regret it. She goes in and it's actually kinda cute how touched the Ex is when he sees her. He doesn't say a word about Jin-wook, but is completely focused on his daughter.
She tells her father she understands and she's satisfied just to see him before he goes. When he turns to go, she calls him back to say that this time he has to answer her phone calls. She also wants to go to an amusement park the next time he comes. He looks moved by her and it's a pretty sincere scene that doesn't feel forced. There is something about the earnestness of a child that can move even the stoniest of hearts.
Hye-shin sees Woo-joo wishing her father well and I just think that little girl who plays Woo-joo rocks. The ladies meet up with Jin-wook who tries to quickly leave, thinking he's not wanted. Hye-shin wants him to go with, but he doesn't listen until Woo-joo reminds him that he owes her sorbet. D'aw! You accepted him! Jin-wook can't help but smile and takes her hand as he takes the ladies home.
Hwang finally finds Mi-ryeong in her home town. She tried to drown herself and Hwang runs out to the beach to stop her from another suicide attempt. But she's just wandering. He screams that he was worried and wants to take her back to Seoul. He can't believe he came back to the place where she tried multiple times to suicide in her past. There are people who make come backs after worse scandals, he tells her, and tries to drag her to the car.
She assures him she's not trying to kill herself, but she's relaxing and letting old memories wash over her. She thanks him for worrying about him and has put severance pay in his account. She sends him back to Seoul alone because it's better for everyone. He only leaves when she threatens to disappear again.
Guh, woe-is-me is annoying.
