At the meeting Mo Ne raises her bid for the land against the Vice Chair. The Vice Chair is rattled as the bid goes higher. Evidently, he loves money and he doesn't want to lose a lot for a land. The Vice Chair demands for a break since the bidding is going overboard.
Mo Ne comes out and talks to JW. JW tells her to stop and give up. He even tells Mo Ne that even if she goes to the police and reports the recording it will still not hold due to lack of concrete evidence.
As JW is about to leave Mo Ne pleads with him to stop all this. He rejects her request. He tells her that whatever she do she won't win against them.
The staff are busy preparing for the show. This was fun to watch.
The Vice Chair is pissed off with the outcome of the meeting. He even wants SWH fired. The show preparation is being handled by JW. He tells the Vice Chair to get some rest and he will pick him up for the rehearsal the next day. Something is up.
Mo Ne sits on her bed and remembers JW rushing to help her and other things. I guess she is torn. She goes out and throws the robot at JW and slaps him twice. As she was about to slap him again JW stops her. JW asks her if she is done venting out her anger. She challenges JW to slap her back but JW refuse to. JW ask her if she is crazy. She replies yes she is crazy because of a man, she can't report to the police. JW agrees that she is crazy and she was easily seduced. He tells her that since she knows the truth she better go. Mo Ne thanks him because now he has given her reason to attack him.JW looks at the broken robot sadly.
We see JW on the phones scheduling a deal closure after the show by agreeing to the condition the other party asks. We see the robot fixed.
Mo Ne is jogging and CK joins her. CK asks her why is she alone and where is JW. Mo Ne replies “who is that?”. She is now acting as if he means nothing to her. CK tells her that it seems she dumped him and so she will get him and will not return him back to Mo Ne. Mo Ne stands firm. CK tells her that it pains her to admit that Mo Ne is the only woman that JW loves that he is willing to risk her life for. This stops Mo Ne. CK tells her that he is happy because of Mo Ne that is why she gave up. She tells Mo Ne that letting him go is worse and hope she does not regret her action.
JW comes to pick the Vice Chair. Mo Ne sees the two of them. Loman interrupts her reverie. She recalls the details Dir. Baek shared to her about Loman. She asks him what would it take for him to be on her side instead of the VC. He invites her to lunch.
The Vice Chair is doing the rehearsal. He is part of the magic show. He standing inside the box with slots for the swords. The magician asks JW to put in the sword in one of the slot. He looks at the VC. I guess JW is thinking of putting in the sword for real. Because I'm also thinking of the same thing. He gets instruction that the sword should be in the horizontal position so as not to harm the VC. JW does the opposite. This made the VC and the magician really nervous. JW looks fierce, with the sword in the slant JW inserts the sword but at the end straightened the sword out. Oh how I wish…hehe He found the VC's nervousness amusing.
JW sits on his desk and remembers what Mo Ne told him the last time. Cha Su Wan comes in. He was called in by JW. I guess he wants to know about Mo Ne. He tells her to forget it but Cha Su Wan tells him that MN is having lunch with Loman at Haemil. This gets a reaction from him.
JW comes in and sees the two at the restaurant. They exchange pleasantries. CK tries to cover for JW and tells them that he is there to meet with her. JW and CK eavesdrop on the conversation of Loman and MN. Loman tells he that he is to be convinced that she is trustworthy for him to decide about the investment. Mo Ne could not help but throw a barb about trust in JW 's way. Loman invites Mo Ne to show him around over the weekend. She agrees and JW is not pleased about this. JW trails Loman who is on his way to see Baek. But somehow Loman knows and surprises JW. He tells Loman that he should not be in this building since it is restricted. Loman comes up with an excuse. JW asks him why is he approaching the Chairman without heeding his previous warning. Loman tells him it is his personal interest and warns JW that he foes not do business with people who does not trust him. Dir. Baek interrupts the two.
When Baek and Loman is alone she tells him to be careful. He talks about Mo Ne and tells her that Mo Ne is willing to give him her shares. Baek tells him that Mo Ne is naive and tells him to get all her shares. Loman asks when he will start with the Vice Chair. Baek tells him it has already started with the Vice Chair.
The Vice Chair comes into his office and sees a note saying it is from Baek MiYeon who is apparently dead. Oh no… It must be the mom of either Loman or JW… Let us speculate for now… The VC is obviously rattled.
Cha Su Wan tells Mo Ne about the show suggesting that she should attend. She tells Mo none that JW has prepared for it and it could be interesting to watch.
The performance starts with the hotel staff. It was fun to watch. But it could not focus on it because I am anticipating the VC's performance. I can feel something is up. The magician helps the VC prepare. He sets up the mic and all. The performance starts and everyone is looking on including the VC's family and MN. It started out well with audience enjoying it. He gives candies to the kids. We all know he does not like kids. He gets a break from the performance and JW massages his shoulder. JW tells him that the kids looked pleased. He stops JW and continues to rant that only the poor goes crazy over tricks. JW replies that he thought he loved children. He tells JW that they beg for you to love them, they are impolite, dirty and like beggars.The VC does not know that his mic is still on and everyone in the audience has heard his rants including his family. Everyone in the audience is upset. The magician rans backstage and the VC comes out and sees the audience in uproar. His wife calls to him if he is the man that she knows. .. It is at this time he realizes that everyone has heard what he said… His daughter walks out and the media keeps on taking pictures…He rans after his daughter and falls. JW looks at him with a satisfied look in his face. Mo Ne sees him.
It is satisfying to see some karma going to the VC's way. It's about time. I really hate his two faced character. It was good to see the some truth about the VC revealed to his family. I'm a little bit nervous if this will bite JW in the next episode. I hope not. I'm also excited to find out who Baek Mi Yeon is. Is it Baek's sister or Baek herself… It would be interesting to see Baek vs. the VC. They are well matched in terms of how cunning they are. The rest are merely pawns in their power struggle. I hope we find out what motivates Baek.
I hope JW gets some break in the next episodes. He already has been through a lot. Just wants the guy to have some break from all this pain. I hope he comes up with a good plan to bring the VC down.
I could understand how conflicted Mo Ne is. She has been warned not to trust anyone. As far as I can see all she has to do is to trust her heart. Because her weakness may be her greatest strength in the end. I used to hate her naïveté and blind trust but this could help her not to give up on JW. I hope she realizes that getting strong by using her head is the only way for her to protect JW. She needs to become a formidable character without losing her innocence to stand up against these predators.
I truly admire CK's character. She is being consistent. She once said that she is on JW's side. She has proven that all she wants is for JW to be happy. She even goes out of her way to challenge M I Ne not to give up on him. I hope these two women get together and comes up with a good plan.
