Hwang arrives at the tent bar, but Park is gone. Kang stumbles back to the table from the loo. Lee is still there, but sporting his most implacable fish face. By now Kang has drunk enough that she is looking a bit fish faced herself. They bicker, Lee somewhat more coherently. Kang begins to cry. Lee begins to yell. Park charges in for the rescue. Lee gets up to go but on his way out, Kang tells him he will live to regret it. As Lee reaches the sidewalk, Hwang arrives and asks where Kang is.

When he thanks her, she tells him it is from Kang. He’s like, Oh-h-h man-n-n . . . As the doorway to Hwang’s office, Kang nearly falls into her office because her ear is pressed to the door.

Kang’s Mother introduces Hwang’s Father to Park Sr.. Hwang’s Father immediately recognizes him as the man Halmoni insulted when he returned their dog. Hwang Sr. lays the bafflegab on like a cropduster, hoping that Park Sr. won’t recognize him. But when a woman walks by with a small white dog, the jig is up. Park Sr. is like, I’ll see you around – and when I do, I’ll kick your richardsimmons. In his shop, Park Sr. notices the bandage Yoon applied to his hand the day before. He recalls what she said about the importance of doing work you love and applies it to his Son’s situartion.

She recalls Lee’s Fish Face. She complains about Lee to Park, who incorrectly surmises that Kang is experiencing romantic difficulties. Kang indignantly denies the truth of Lee’s surmise. Hwang’s Father arrives home with the side dishes and Halmoni complains they already have more side dishes than they can eat. Hwang and Yoon arrive home.

Then she encounters her Brother, who is testy. Leo and Lee’s Sister greet Lee’s Father at the end of the day. Lee’s Father wonders how he ended up with a Son In Law who’s prettier than his daughter. The three of them try out a Korean-Italian translation app which does not work flawlessly. They decide that maybe they are better off miscommunicating directly with each other. Her Father says something. She tells Leo that she will translate what he said when they return to their bedroom. Lee returns home and encounters his irritated Father. In their bedroom, Lee’s Sister explains to Leo that he needs to learn Korean ASAP. She further explains that homicide in Korea is rare but not unknown. Lee encounters Leo and gives him the Full Frontal Fish Face. As Park returns home, he remembers one of his Father’s angry lectures. Then he receives a call from his Father and he enters the house, expecting a confrontation. Instead, they drink soju and reconcile. Kang sits in her bedroom and is inspired by her new business card. Saturday morning. Halmoni brushes her dog. Yoon offers to take the dog for a walk and Halmoni is like, No Way. Hwang receives a call from Park. When she gathers that it isn’t work or drink related, she becomes haughty. But when she learns that he followed her advice and reconciled with his Father, she is glad. Who should be walking and jogging in the park at the same time? Why, it’s Yoon and Park Sr.. He sees her resting on a park bench. When he returns and offers her an ice cream cone, Yoon is like a deer in the headlights.

Kang’s Mother notes that Park Sr. is not in his shop. She reflects that now that Park Jr. is jobless, she needs to discourage her daughter’s romantic interest in him. A woman needs a man with a salary, not a man with a dream. Hwang’s Father sits in his break room and reflects that he should have married Kang’s Mother. Park Sr. and Yoon are still trapped in the elevator but at least he has stopped singing. But his stomach is growling. And so is her’s.

Hwang calls Kang and tells her that Lee would like to meet up today, if possible. Hwang meets Kang in the lobby of the building and tells her that she won’t be attending the meeting because something has come up. So it will be just Kang and Lee.

Lee’s Father remembers being kissed on both cheeks by his Son In Law the night before and winces. Kang arrives at the sweatshop and exasperates Kim. Hwang is beginning to wonder about Lee’s obvious lack of zest for his job and life in general. She asks him if he has a girlfriend and he ignores her, as though a man needs a girlfriend like a bicycle needs a fish. Yoon’s Sister talks with Lee’s Sister and offers to fix her Mother up with another man. Lee’s Sister is irritated. Yoon talks with her Sister and complains about her sore feet.

As Park continues to read the comic books, Hwang falls asleep with her head on his shoulder. Park is not unhappy.
  9. @fanofr I forgot that there is apparently a Korean taboo against in laws marrying. Thus if Park and Hwang hook up, Park Sr. and Yoon would experience severe cultural headwinds if they pursued a romance. There was a lot of discussion of that taboo in the Soompi forum for the drama, The Unusual Family. In that drama, the uncle of the groom and aunt of the bride scandalized their families by falling in love. They were finally able to marry, but only because it was discovered that the uncle had impregnated the aunt during a drunken night of passion which neither of them remembered, and being a single mother in Korea is an even bigger taboo than marrying a close inlaw.
  10. I suspect that Kang's Mother and Yoon will fight it out for Park Sr. . No need to assume that Yoon will win. @fanofr I'm actually beginning to warm to the Leo character. I think we were meant to infer in the beginning that he was Slam-Bam-See You Later Ma'am Eurotrash, so his acting served its purpose. I suspect that from now on his character will primarily serve as a target and launching pad for jokes by other cast members, so all he has to do is show up.
  11. SUNNY AGAIN TOMORROW RECAP, EPISODE 21 Lee and Hwang discuss the dishonest supplier with their boss. Then Hwang and Lee decide to go to the fabric store. At the sweatshop, Kim notices that Kang seems to be learning the trade. Kim sends Kang out of the shop with a list of items to buy. Kang shops at the fabric store. Kwang eavesdrops as a saleslady tells Kang she’ll give her a special price for fabric. As Kang is paying the “special price,” Hwang interrupts the transaction and rips into the shoplady for ripping Kang off, telling her she is getting the wholesale price when she is actually being charged retail. Then Hwang tells Kang about a store where the same fabric can be had at a cheaper price. Kang is like, WTF? But also grateful. Before Kang leaves, the shoplady lowers the fabric’s price to the true wholesale price and Kang buys it and leaves. Kang runs after Hwang and thanks her effusively, but Hwang is dismissive and walks off arrogantly. Before Hwang can strut a proper distance, she is accosted by a purse snatcher. Kang comes to her aid and wreaks some Bruce Lee on the thug’s richardsimmons. Kang notices that Hwang’s skirt is ripped and fashions an impromptu repair. Hwang smiles for the first time. Hwang gives Kang her business card, and she recognizes the Shopping Network. Hwang says she must work in the same field. Kang says,, well not exactly . . . They depart on friendly terms. As she walks away, she encounters Lee talking on his phone and giving the rest of the human race the stink eye. She blocks his passage. He is not pleased to meetcha. Kang draws upon her knowledge of scatology and analyzes his character, then departs in a huff. Lee thinks it’s early and the day is already headed South. Hwang rejoins Lee and invites him to have brunch with her. He claims another engagement and departs, as is his wont. Kang returns to the shop and relates her exploits to Kim, who is not impressed. In his shop, Park Sr. notices the scarf Yoon left behind. Hwang stops by Yoon’s office and pitches a possible deal with the Shopping Network. Yoon is noncommittal.. Yoon’s Sister and Lee’s Mother go off to lunch so Yoon is alone when Park Sr. enters her store to return the scarf. He is shocked to find her humming happily as she fiddles with some dresses. When she notices his presence, her mood abruptly changes and they bicker. Before he leaves she offers him a reward for returning the scarf and he is insulted. But as they part, they look wistfully at each other despite themselves. Park Sr. decides that since he is near his Son’s erstwhile office he may as well have lunch with him. But when he calls “the office,” he lears that his Son no longer works there. Kang joins Park for lunch in a café. As they talk, Kang learns for the first time that Park quit his “perfectly good job” to start his own business and is like, WTF? He makes her promise not to tell his Father. He tells her that her fashion startup could obtain small business assistance from the Korean Government and share office space with him. Hwang meets her Father for lunch and he complains about Halmoni’s insulting treatment. She tells him that like the rest of the human race he should find a job whether he likes it or not. After all, there is a reason “work” is called “work.” Hwang asks whether he would want her to marry “a man like you” and he apparently wouldn’t. Hwang’s Brother realizes that he lost some sketches he made when someone jostled him on the street. He tells Halmoni that he is leaving the house to study but she tells him that his tutor has just arrived. His Mother apparently failed to inform him that she had made the appointment. Kang’s Sister arrives to tutor Hwaang’s Brother. They recognize each other from their earlier encounters and neither is thrilled. Leo, the Husband Formerly Known As The Fey Caballero (and maybe in the future as “Meatball” if he develops an Archie Bunker/Meathead vibe with his Father In Law), arrives at the Lee Manse with his roller bag.

  15. It looks like more comic relief is on the way as Leo (the "Fey Caballero") marries into the plot. He and Lee's Sister vaguely resemble Ricky and Lucy of "I Love Lucy." Since the couple doesn't have the means to live on their own, there will probably be an "Archie Bunker v. Meathead" vibe between Leo and his xenophobic Father In Law. Lots of possibilities for boilerplate domestic comedy with these two characters if "writer's block" rears its ugly head. According to "The Internet," the man who plays Leo is actually a Frenchman who moved to Korea and has become a Korean television personality.
