(Episode 19) Ms. Kang, have you lost your mind? This is President Hwang’s daughter. Pardon? Apologize this instant. I-I’m sorry. Your name is Kang Yeowon? I’ll make you pay for this. No. You’re fired. Fired? Fired? That’s absurd. What’s going on? How dare you tell me to leave? Do you know who this building and company belong to? Calm down. Don’t you train your staff? Mr. Bong, come with me. Move. Why aren’t you coming with me? Get back to work. My goodness. So his mistress is the owner’s daughter? Was there a problem with the latest hiring? How could you hire someone that clueless? She is new, so let it slide just this once. Strictly speaking, you’re not a Hana employee, and she is under no obligation to know who you are. It’s only natural to be wary of strangers in the office due to security concerns. She knew who I was and was bent on shooing me out. I doubt that. You’ll defend your staff to the end? Fine. She was playing the role of a guard dog, so I’ll let it go. Guard dog? Do you have dinner plans? Why do you ask? Let’s have dinner. I want to thank you for helping me with my studio. Y-You don’t have to thank me for that. I’ll buy. I’ll buy a lavish dinner beyond your imagination. It really is okay. I should go. Where are you going? I said I was buying dinner. I must see President Hwang, I mean, I have a meeting and a family thing… This is a very rare opportunity. But I just don’t have the time. It’s that chump. Dad, I told you to fire him right away. It’s an abuse of power to fire someone for irking you. Good grief. She’s harassing him again. What are you doing, Hwang Suji? Stop it this instant. Dad, it’s not what you think. Sure it is. It’s clear as day that you’re harassing him. Mr. Bong, you can go. I’ll get going, President Hwang. Okay. Geez, Dad. I said it’s not what you think. Stop harassing the staff. You promised to be talked about only for your achievements if I got you a studio. If you keep this up, I’ll recall all the capital I invested in your studio. You’re always threatening me over money. Since you’re here, let’s have dinner with Jihun. Save it. I’ll eat with Mom at home. Hey. That brat. Ms. Kang, be more mindful when dealing with Ms. Hwang. It won’t do you any good if there is a big fuss. As you saw, she is a handful. Understood? But of course, given how intimate a relationship you have with her. Why are you staring at me like that? No, it’s nothing. Understood. This is to make up for canceling on you, so eat away. Thanks to you, I’m getting free dinner. Thank you. I wanted us to have a drink together. What happened to those girls who were fawning over you? I have to return the sneakers one of them gave me, but they haven’t called. I wonder if something happened to them. Forever admirers don’t exist. Oh, right. Did you meet the owner of the necklace? You said it took a lot to find the necklace. All that effort would have been in vain otherwise. The owner is harder to find than the necklace. I should go. But you don’t have a delivery call. Oh. You’re off to look for the necklace’s owner? Whoever she is, she must be very pretty if you’re this desperate to find her. What’s the story with the necklace? Whose is it? Oh. Was it two nights ago? Inam saved a woman who was being harassed by thugs. And he found the necklace she lost that night. But what was the point? He doesn’t even know her number. It was all in vain. Two nights ago? That’s why he stood me up? Excuse me. Yes? W-What is it? I’m sorry. I thought you were someone I knew. No sign of her today either. So how is Dad? He’s barely eating? Yes. Don’t you know what he’s like? He apologizes 15 times for stepping on someone’s foot. Imagine his horror at offending your in-laws. Yeoju, please take care of Dad. I’ll pay you back later, so go home early and get something tasty for Dad. He said he was stopping by the restaurant tonight to apologize to Ilnam. But it’s not like he committed a mortal sin. I should have looked into it better before setting up the blind date. I am sorry to have offended you. How could you set him up with a divorcee with a son? It would be one thing if she was young. Ilnam is the eldest son of this family. I trusted you and forced him into it. Unbelievable. It was my bad. I am very sorry, Kkonnip. What’s done is done. Let it go, Ms. Wang. Stay for dinner. Thank you. Oh, gosh. You really don’t have to do this. Don’t mention it. I tried the cream, and it’s very good. I just want to introduce it to fellow cab drivers and acquaintances, so don’t think anything of it. If that is the case… This small one is the eye cream, and this big one is the Hakuna Matata massage cream. Once people try it, they will ask you where you got it and clamor for more. As for the quality, you have my guarantee. O-Of course. Ilnam, I apologize once again about the blind date. I am very sorry. Call me any time if you need more. I’ll be waiting. Yes, yes. Don’t worry. I’ll buy a lot more from you. Yeowon. Hi, Yeowon. My sales shot up thanks to Gyucheol. It’s a beautiful night. I’m sorry for lashing out over Ilnam’s blind date. I added to your distress, didn’t I? I was tired and on edge that night. And hearing about it upset me. I’m fine, so don’t worry about me. You must let it out when you’re upset. With Dong-u gone, who else would you do it to? You can always vent to me. I’m sorry. I should be looking out for you. Why are you fussing over me? I’m fine so long as you and Yeoju are well. Dad. Mind Kkonnip so that she doesn’t feel neglected now that you have a job. Even if you’re tired, help out at home. Although Kkonnip has given you permission to work, don’t stay out late as she will worry. I know what you mean. Don’t worry. Okay. It’s cold. Go on in. Drive safe. Will do. It’s cold. Go on in. Hi. Seonhwa, is something wrong? Why do you look so down? Nothing’s wrong. Want me to do it? That’s okay. You’re tired too. What about dinner? I ate. Really? You didn’t, right? Sorry. I’m just not hungry. Seonhwa, I won’t ask you to bare your soul. But have at least one meal a day with me. I didn’t eat yet because I was waiting for you. Okay. Go and get changed. I’ll get dinner ready. Why are you home so early today? Why the long face? Is something wrong? Mom, do you have money? What for? The studio costs a lot of money, but Dad is being very stingy, using money as an excuse to control me. Gosh. Isn’t it absurd that I must worry about money? Should I give you the money? Really? How much can you give me? But there is a condition. Remember the blind date I mentioned? I don’t want to. Hear me out. He is the younger son of Geoyong’s owner. Although he has a dramatic backstory, his family is a power player. He’s 100 times better than Jihun. That only makes him a dragon’s tail. Anyway, I’m not interested one way or another. Why is everyone bent on marrying me off? We want what’s best for you. Do as I say and just meet him. Then I’ll give you all of my secret rainy day fund. It’s a lot more than you think. How much? More than enough to finance your studio. Hon, you’re going straight to the factory today, right? Yes. Why are you asking about the factory? Come on. Of course I should be curious about your schedule. I’m off. Have a nice day, Dad. You too. Hope all goes well at the factory. Thanks. Suji, come to the hotel on time. Don’t forget. Oh my. Why no answer? Promise me. What if I don’t come? Then you won’t get a penny from me. Fine. Ilnam, where are you? Noodles cooked to perfection. This is what I live for. Yes. Yes, I’ll be right here. No. My back is all better now. Yes, okay. Thank you. Come have some. I can’t. The construction site called. I’ll be paid for a full day if I go now. $100 is nothing to sneeze at. Really? Okay. Run along then. Wait. Ow, it’s hot. Slow down. Geez. You just had lunch. Sangmun, go tend the cafe for me. I can’t. What? You can’t? Why not? I have to go hiking. Are you kidding me? Are you possessed by the mountain spirit? Your bad back cost us medical expenses. No way. Ilnam, help me out. Sangmun. Where are you going? Come back here. Sangmun! Thank goodness I’m not married. It’s heavy, isn’t it? How much would we get for this? Give it back. No can do. Why did you throw it so hard? Where did it go? We won’t get much for it anyway. Oh no. I looked everywhere. Where did it go? Oh no. What do I do? What is this? I’m sorry, Ms. Hwang. Are you out of your mind? The opening party is right around the corner! How could you damage my centerpiece like this? I’m very sorry. You put so much into this. Why are you crying? Will crying solve this? Tell me the truth. You have something against me, don’t you? That’s why you took it out on my work! Tell me the truth! Hello? You startled me. Why are you yelling? I’m here. Hurry over. Fine. I have to step out for a bit. Undo the damage by the day’s end. By the day’s end? Otherwise, tender your resignation and get lost! She had better show up. Doesn’t he exude luxury, befitting the son of Geoyong’s owner? He has a nice complexion and very good looks. He could be a movie star. Mom. I told you to be on time. Oh my. So this is your daughter. You are a beauty as I’ve been told. Hello. This wasn’t easy to pull off, so do a good job. Don’t forget to act coy. Which one is he? Over there. We don’t need a chaperone. Your daughter doesn’t hold back. I’ll stay to make sure all goes well. Thank you. I just have to take care of Jihun now. You’re late. I was gussying up so you’d gape at me head to toe. I wasn’t gaping at you. Let’s cut to the chase. Forget intros as you know who I am and vice versa. Let me ask you point-blank. Do you plan to do pop art even after you marry? But of course. I only let my mom drag me here so I can do pop art. Drag you here? Do you think I wanted to come? What could I possibly gain by coming? A whole lot. Hana is small-fry compared to Geoyong Group. An annual revenue of $500 million is small to you? Just coffee. You do have some spunk and a hot body, taking after your ex-receptionist mom. Ex-receptionist? I did my research. Romance between the CEO and receptionist. Your mother must have been quite the seductress. She must have special skills. What about you? Do you and your brother have the same father? What? Is your father actually your father? Are you kidding me? Hey! What, you illegitimate child? Boss, we will clock out from the printing office. Okay. Good night. See you tomorrow. Ms. Kang, come. What is this? These are Hana and our competitors’ news articles. I’m putting you in charge, so come in half an hour early starting tomorrow. Half an hour early? Why? Is that not doable? It is. Go through the file and analyze the differences between the companies’ press releases. How a marketing press release is drafted affects the product’s image. Do you get what I am saying? Don’t listen halfheartedly. Take some notes. It’s really bothering me. Excuse me? Ms. Kang, do you not want to work? Hold still before you get pricked. All set. I feel so much better now. Oh. What were you saying earlier? Pardon? Oh. What I was saying was… Well… My phone is ringing. (Hwang Suji) Bong Cheondong speaking. New Western Hotel? Right now? He’s off to see his mistress again. Hello, Ms. Gu. President Hwang went to the factory today. I know. Sit. Yes, ma’am. Give up. You must have done well at work to impress Byeong-rae, but I have no intention of accepting you as my son-in-law. So quietly walk away from Suji. Understood? Why no answer? You won’t walk away? I know very well why you disapprove of me. That is why I plan to do my best to win you over. Do your best? You’re a poor orphan of unknown origins. What can you do about that? Will you be reborn? Can you do that? How dare you covet my daughter? Snap out of it. Suji went on a blind date with the younger son of Geoyong’s owner. Did she? So give it up, because I will make their marriage happen. Yes, Ms. Eun. What? Suji? Are you okay, ma’am? What is she thinking? That’s right. My mom was a receptionist. Now let’s talk about your mom. Is she still running a hostess bar? You’re not thinking straight, are you? Your family will pay if you provoke me! I provoked you. What now? How dare you? You don’t have to apologize. I’m very warm-blooded. But there are surveillance cameras everywhere. Will you two still carry on? Talk about a crappy day. Are you okay? Take care then. Wait. You drive. I might get into an accident if I drive right now. Excuse me. Wasn’t there a woman here who caused a commotion? Oh, her. Yes. But some guy took her out. Some guy? Yes. Jihun. Isn’t it normal to be angry in a situation like this? Do you want me to be jealous? That would be more exhausting. Ganda Delivery Service. Oh? My necklace. Do you know of the hippest restaurant these days? A restaurant that women like? That lady always comes alone. Your wife passed a long time ago, right? Excuse me. What is Mr. Bong’s wife doing here? She works with the mistress?
