Chapter 3: Blame the butterflies

Mirae is so NOT okay. She tells how much she wants the job but asks why she isn’t given the chance . . . Seju listens.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h56m25s214When she stops, he doesn’t say lame things like “it’s not a big deal”, “you’ll find another job” . . .

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h56m39s105Instead, “Vanilla latte. It’s best to have something sweet when feeling heart broken.” Sweet. Indeed.

Mirae wants some beer instead. After one, she’s still NOT OK. So Seju is to get her another.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h57m18s230But Mirae says she doesn’t need it. She explains she understands why she doesn’t get the job. It really isn’t about her being too old. She’s plain incompetent. Seju asks her not to be too harsh on herself.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h57m40s203Mirae picks herself up and intends to go home wrapping up the unfinished job, only to find she’s left her laptop in the conference room. So Seju and Mirae go back together.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h58m29s167While the team have their meeting, Mirae looks around for her laptop. Seju can’t help searching with his eyes too. But the others are totally indifferent, some even enjoy that she’s having a hard time?!

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h58m54s185Anyway, Mirae finds it and is about to leave. But Kim Shin stops her, asks her to tell her suggestions. Seju’s face. From curious. To worried. To impressed. And back to curious.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h59m21s166
vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h59m30s32 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h59m41s129 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-11h59m53s3Mirae comes to the office the next day. Being clueless about everything, she’s harassed by PD Color-Wolf. Seju happens to witness all of it.vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h00m09s131 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h00m19s254Seju grabs the PD’s hand and says he admires sunbae’s BIG hand. Mirae is saved. Again.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h00m41s227 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h00m51s72Seju murmurs how come such people enter YBS.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h01m35s231Seju’s eager eyes when Mirae asks for a favor.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h02m10s86But that woman writer gets all sarcastic commenting why Mirae doesn’t ask her instead. Maybe Seju wonders why everybody hates Mirae?

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h02m24s229Seju is writing down his observations of the team members and his thoughts on changes for improvement. vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h03m19s20 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h03m30s125But PD Color-Wolf appears from nowhere. He thinks Seju must be playing some game and not working, that’s why the instant closing of his laptop. *Phew* PD Color-Wolf suggests they go watch the audition of weather girls together. Seju says he has work to do. Then he blames Seju for working too hard, jokingly. Seju agrees politely. Smiles and everything.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h04m06s225 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h05m08s67When the PD left, Seju writes down in his secret file: there needs to be tighter screening on PD hiring.vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h03m38s191

Yukyung should be listening to Seju about work, but she keeps talking on the phone. Seju has cast her impatient looks but she just doesn’t care.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h06m34s138 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h07m23s143Until Seju has his eyes on her legs, she suddenly cares, by showing him more legs. Seju’s covering her legs with his jacket absolutely offends her. When Seju asks her to concentrate on work, Yukyung says somebody else can’t concentrate, not her. “Do you want to sleep with me? Is that how you get to do programs all this time? I’m just a VJ, I have no power . . .” vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h07m45s102 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h07m55s204 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h08m17s177Then Seju realizes he’s crossed the line or it’s another level of mean. He says he’s been working overtime and he doesn’t want to say even worse things that he shouldn’t say. It’s better they get back to real work. Just when he starts talking about work again, Mirae knocks at the door. vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h09m28s115Seju wants to stop immediately and tells Yukyung they’ll continue 20 minutes later. Seju’s friendly and enthusiastic attitude towards Mirae, all in Yukyung’s eyes.vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h10m16s67Seju is driving Mirae home. Must be the road is busy, Seju is so concentrated driving. He doesn’t notice Mirae is restless and acting weird. Until Mirae splashes water everywhere and some lands on his face. vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h10m44s104 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h11m51s237

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h12m21s50Mirae suggests going to the Han River. For WATER. “Didn’t you say you want to go home ASAP? I think we have time for water the alternative way. Car wash.”

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h13m18s91 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h13m25s171 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h13m31s243Why isn’t Mirae watching the above? Seju belongs to the TV viewers?

Does Mirae do that deliberately? They end up getting all soaked. Back to the office. Mirae changed her pants. They share a blanket and watch the edited video together. Scented candles, lollipops, and plush toys. Jung Yong Hwa will be envious.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h15m31s122Then Seju asks about her scar. He feels sorry asking. But Mirae tells him anyway. It’s when she’s three. Her parents were fighting when she had the accident. Like most kids, she thought her parents’ getting mad at each other was her fault. vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h15m40s250 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h15m45s54 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h16m05s233“Your parents must be so sorry too.” Mirae’s parents passed away. She doesn’t say when.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h16m21s123 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h16m57s242 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h17m14s167Those warm eyes watching her tell her story. Why doesn’t she turn and look at him?!

Seju touches the scar lightly. He even comforts a scar.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h18m21s46“Mirae-si, it’s your second time “falling into” water already.”

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h18m39s250 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h18m52s126Of course Mirae is clueless. Seju’s flashback. The first fall.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h19m11s54 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h19m29s237 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h20m28s60Seriously, Mirae can’t even feel his lovingly gazing at her? Damn.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h20m49s238“By the way, have you met with Seo Yukyung?” “No. Why?” “She says she’ll date you. Own you.” “Am I a thing? Own?” . . . “Anyway, don’t you find her pretty? And you two are of the same age.” “She’s not my type.” vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h21m38s210Mirae notices Kim Shin pass by and see them together. Then she becomes more enthusiastic towards Seju, acting lovey-dovey with Seju just for Kim Shin’s eyes? Tell me I misunderstand her.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h22m17s120The program is aired finally. Mirae is very happy staring at the TV in the studio. Seju tells Mirae that there are 3 to 4 million people watching, she can feel very proud of herself.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h23m20s249And she should see her name appear in the ending credits too. Everybody except 2 persons vote for including her name.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h24m02s153 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h24m13s244 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h24m20s77 vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h24m42s31But someone can’t stand their standing there so close together, all happy. She even hugs him.

vlcsnap-2013-10-22-12h25m17s121Locking eyes.

  1. Your recaps are the best! Makes me feel like watching it brand new. Also reminds me of the time I first stumbled here while scavenging for HS reviews. 😀

    And that first carwash cap….are you trying to kill your readers before they finish MHIYD? o<-<

    It's funny he keeps saving her. In Korean, Seju's name is pronounced in the same way as '世主' in '救世主', so some fans call Seju "the Savior". Not at all coincidental, is it?

    • Thank you for always making me happy. I’m quite proud of myself with the Lee Shin recaps.

      Not so sure about Seju ones. For I just want to type ^___________^, or, o<-<

      I did think about what Seju means. And what you mentioned has crossed my mind. Thanks.

  2. Your summary and recaps are breath-taking! I think if the show was only about Seju, I’d watch it still (and maybe enjoy it even more).

    Every single frame Yong Hwa is in is just an art piece. How does he do it?

  3. “Seriously, Mirae can’t even feel his lovingly gazing at her? Damn.” I don’t know how many time I had spoken this sentence repeatly. I found no emotion/feeling but just thankful and curious from Mirae that made me hate her. Hic, I put my blame on writer 😦 Sorry for my frustration.
