The plot thickens! Hyung Suk is finally back and is intent on his revenge against the President. Min Suk’s good heart gets in the way, though, and the brothers are arguing rather than celebrating being united once again. Secrets are revealed left and right as the drama’s big storylines come to a climax, and the episode ends with a scene that is sure to break your heart.
Jin Woo knows about Min Suk’s double identity, so prepare for lots of smug faces and sly comments. But Min Suk finds out a secret too, and if he plays his cards right he can stay afloat in the corporate world a little longer. There’s not much of Min Suk’s friends or Yoo Ah, but watch out for a surprise appearance at the end of the episode!
Min Suk and Soo Young have finally kissed and made up, though Soo Young still has reservations about dating Min Suk while he’s in high school. The President finds Min Suk’s Dad and tries to atone for past sins. Meanwhile, Jin Woo gets closer and closer to finding out the truth about Min Suk’s identity and intentions.
Even more heartbreak! Min Suk gets tragic news that affects his life in a big way, while Soo Young decides that moving to a new house will give her a fresh start. Jin Woo keeps pulling Soo Young into his life, with help from Yoo Ah, who continues the uncomfortable tension with her sister. It’s a happy ending this time around, though, so the fun and crazy Savvy should be returning to us very soon.
Just as expected, this episode was full of angst and heartbreak. Soo Young and Yoo Ah duke it out, Min Suk and Soo Young both walk around like lifeless zombies, and Jin Woo shows more heart than ever but at the wrong time. The tension and awkwardness is high and it’s not clear what will happen next.

The Synopsis: As a child, Park Hoon and his father were kidnapped by North Korea. In North Korea, Park Hoon was trained to become a doctor by his father who was already a doctor. Park Hoon became a genius like chest surgeon.
He then flees to South Korea. Park Hoon begins to work as a doctor in South Korea’s top hospital Myeongwoo University Hospital, but he feels like a complete outsider. To bring back his love from North Korea, he does anything to make money.
The Review: Let’s get this out of the way; the suspension of disbelief is very important in this drama. It gets pretty ridiculous at times, even for kdrama standards. I’m still appalled that they had surgical competitions that gambled with the lives of their own patients, and managed to drag it out for almost the entire drama. Not to mention Park Hoon had this almost supernatural ability to hold a heart and be able to “feel” what was wrong with it. Seriously?
After the last episode being full of the cute and adorable antics of our couple, this one focuses on all those pesky secrets and doubts in Min Suk and Soo Young’s relationship. Min Suk can’t ignore the fact that he’s lying about the vast majority of his life. Jin Woo takes his bastard status to new levels, and continues to create more trouble for the loving couple.
Works falls to the wayside as we get an entire episode dedicated to the adorable antics of our new couple, Min Suk and Soo Young. It’s nothing but walks in the park, island trips, and too many kisses to count. While his co-workers are falling love, Jin Woo continues his mission to find out what the hell is up with Min Suk and what secrets he’s hiding.
With the love triangle aspect dwindling down for a bit, we get more focus on Soo Young and Min Suk’s obvious and growing feelings for each other. Nothing can happen without some drama angst first, though. Meanwhile, Jin Woo’s parents get some screen time to further demonstrate their aggressive and dysfunctional relationship. Jin Woo’s cool facade starts breaking, and hopefully he’ll try to change before it’s too late.
There’s lots more relationship drama and laughs coming our way. Min Suk’s feelings grow, as does his jealousy over Soo Young and Jin Woo spending time together. Soo Young shows her kind and thoughtful nature again, and there are some cracks in the cold mask Jin Woo wears. His family and childhood are brought into the light, and there are some much need revelations regarding his character. Min Suk takes another big step towards Soo Young, while Yoo Ah continues to gain more sympathy. Who should we ship at this point in the story? I wish I knew.
