  1. I don't think the Stepmother exactly abandoned EJ or put her up for adoption in the normal sense of those words. If the Stepmother was EJ's mother, likely "Mr. Gil" was her Father and they arranged for the "foundling" to be "found" and adopted by Mr. Gil and his wife. Thereafter the Stepmother moved in to the Gil household to help care for Mr. Gil's wife and EJ. Under the circumstances, that was as close as she could get to creating a normal family environment for EJ.
  2. I HATE TO LOVE YOU (AKA I HATE YOU BUT I LOVE YOU) (AKA LOVE RETURNS) RECAP, EPISODE 68 In the front yard, Gil's Brother tells the Aunt and Gil that he knows where the moving company is storing the Stepmother's possessions. As he tells them about the Spy Cam, Jung arrives and overhears. Jung fixes the three with a malevolent look and is like, What do you think you're doing?

As Jung's Mother emerges from the bedroom she finds her Daughters and Ex-Husband sitting in the living room. She attempts to persuade her two daughters to return home but neither is willing. Jung's Father chimes in and tries to talk Jung's Sister out of the house with equal lack of success. Then Jung's Mother asks her to postpone her wedding. Jung is like, No way. Jung's Father tells his Ex that she is embarrassing him. She's like, I can't embarrass you, you're embarrassing me. They bicker. Gil searches some boxes in a storeroom. Then she discovers a small box with some diaries and account books. Back in her bedroom, Gil reads a diary and cries. Then she notices a key. Big Shot drops by the Beauty Shop and has an amicable conversation with Jung's Mother. He assures her that he is committed to her daughter. She, mistaking him for a good influence, asks him to help Jung "return to her senses." Madame Goo, learning that Hong and Gil have each taken a day off, summons Assistant Lee into her office. He fibs, saying that Hong is sick with the flu. In the hallway, Assistant Lee attempts to search for Hong's missing charm without attracting attention. But he attracts Jung's attention. He makes the mistake of telling Jung that the charm is very important to Hong.He further errs by telling her that in times of stress, Hong likes to hold the charm in his hand. Gil enters the apartment as Hong is sleeping. She shows Hong the key she has found and wonders whether it has anything to do with the documents they are seeking. Hong tells Gil that he is worried about something indefinable that may have something to do with his Mother. Madame Goo, who has been given the password to the apartment, makes an entrance. She's like, The two of you are not allowed to tete a tete. Then she refers to Hong as her nephew, catches herself, and then lies that Assistant Lee is her nephew. The Manager of the Small Cafe helps the Stepmother practice writing her name while the Aunt searches for the Spy Cam.

He promises to bring the "owner of the building" to the settlement conference. When the Stepmother enters her bedroom, he promises to take her "to someplace nice tomorrow." When he sits down and ponders how to sneak her out of the house, she asks him what he is doing. He says that he is thinking. Then she surprises him by clobbering him with a pillow to help him think. Jung confronts Big Shot's Mother with the diamond necklace she tore off and left in the Beauty Salon the previous day. Big Shot's Mother tells her that she doesn't want it. And furthermore, she tells Jung, "Stop calling me Mother." Big Shot's Mother tells Jung, If you want to know why I don't want my Son to marry you, go to the marketplace and see what they are saying about you and your family. Jung slumps out of the Small Cafe. Gil and Hong walk from place to place searching for something the key fits. He suggests that they visit the store that was the scene of his Father's death. She thinks he's nuts. Back at the Small Cafe, Big Shot's Mother gripes to Gigolo about her Son's relationship with Jung. He tells her to brace herself because he suspects that her darling son is in cahoots with Jung's Father. She denies it and storms out of the cafe. Hong eyes the Store from the sidewalk. He sees the Store Manager he talked with yesterday chatting with Madame Goo. Now he knows the source of the BS the Manager fed him yesterday.

Big Shot compares himself to a car without breaks and passes out. The Sun rises over Ill Gotten Manse. The Manager of the Small Cafe arrives to assist the Stepmother but she is nowhere in the house. She calls Jung's Father but is not surprised when he doesn't pick up. Then she calls and notifies Gil. Big Shot works in his office, looking very chipper with a man who in real life would have a Katzenjammer the size of Alaska. Despite looking chipper, Jung enters and apprises him of the fact that he reeks of alcohol. Big Shot receives a call. He speaks into the phone: A contract? He asks Jung to leave because he has work to do. In the real estate office, Jung's Father is about to sweet talk the Stepmother into applying her seal to the sales ccontract. Jung's Father receives a call from Big Shot and steps out of the real estate office to take it. then the Realtor heeds Nature's Call and heads for the Men's Room, leaving the Stepmother alone.

The Manager of the Small Cafe asks Gil about the missing photo album. Gil doesn't remember the photo albums. Then the Aunt storms in and begins berating the Manager for no apparent reason. When the Aunt storms out, the Manager remarks to Gil that she wonders whose side the Aunt is really on. Gil says the only thing she is certain of is that the Aunt is on her brother's side. The Aunt recalls Jung's father's statement that she'd better team up with him because if the Stepmother never regains her memory, the Aunt will be penniless. He told her that if she cooperates with him, he will give her the Stepmother's old house. The Aunt is not sure how to respond to his ultimatum. Jung sits contemplating the charm Hong dropped.

Gigolo and Big Shot's Mother walk through a supermarket and gorge on free food samples. Jung's Mother stands in a store and walks Gigolo and Big Shot's Mother pass by on the sidewalk. In her Beauty Shop,, Jung's Mother sits down to a solitary dinner of chicken and soju. The Manager urgently pulls Gil aside and tells her that the Stepmother seems to be regaining her memory, but thus far only in fleeting flashbacks. They agree to keep pen and paper handy so that they can record anything the Stepmother may say that could be significant. Jung enters Ill Gotten Manse and loudly summons her father. She walks in on the Stepmother and the two women lock eyes. Jung's Father enters and Jung stomps out of the room. Alarmed, Jung tells her Father that she is afraid that the Stepmother's memory is back because she appears to recognize her. He tells her not to worry. He pulls out his cell phone and shows Jung surveillance video of the Stepmother. Obviously, he has equipped the house with a Spy Cam. Jung's Sister approaches and, unseen, overhears her Father telling Jung what a genius he is. As Jung's Father is bragging about throwing the Stepmother's photo albums out, Jung's Sister makes her entrance. Jung and her father pretend they were talking about her wedding. He leaves and Jung's Sister makes clear that she noticed that Jung and her Father stopped talking as soon as she entered. Jung is like, Whatever, and flounces off.

She smiles. He doesn't. The Aunt, Gil and her Brother aren't very welcoming either. Jung enters the living room and drags her Sister upstairs. The Aunt demands that Jung's Father remove Jung's Sister from the house. He's like, Give me time to think. Jung drags her Sister into a bedroom and demands that she move back so their Mother won't be lonely. Jung's Sister sugests that she go live with their Mother if she is so concerned. Jung says that she needs to stay there to "guard Dad." From the hallway, the Aunt can be heard attempting to tear the door to the bedroom down while the two sisters bicker. "Gil arrives.

Big Shot walks in on his Mother, who is compiling a lengthy list of gifts she wants from Jung's family. He's frustrated that she has also been infected by the Greed Bug. Gil, Jung and her Sister attempt to sleep in the same bed. The attempt is no more successful than you would expect. The Stepmother is in the kitchen taking some medicine and drops a pill on the floor. Jung enters and imperiously picks the pill up and hands it to the Stepmother, who pops it into her mouth. Jung begins to ask her a series of questions. The Stepmother says that Jung;s Father is her husband but Gil is a "pretty lady who lives with us." As Gil enters the kitchen, Jung is badgering the Stepmother, asking whether she thinks Jung is pretty to. Then she tells the Stepmother that she is only pretending to be ill Jung tells her that she must be scared because she "gave Dad that building and there is nothing you can do to put him behind bars."

The unhappy blended family sits down to bowls of instant ramen. Jung's Father complains that the fare is not up to the standards to which he would like to become accustomed. The Aunt demands more money for living expenses. Jung's Father complains that the Stepmother's medical care is costing "him" a fortune and Gil reminds him that he is spending "Her" money. Then they all begin trading accusations and insults. Jung attempts to reprimand the Aunt for disrespecting her husband. When she turns to her Sister for support, her Sister recites a litany of basic household expenses her Father is neglecting. Gil's Brother smiles to himself. Jung's Father storms into his bedroom and shuts the door. He wonders what's up with Jung's Sister. His phone rings. It's Realtor Jang. He has a buyer for one of the properties but his offer is exceptionally low. Jung's Father is like, I can't talk now -- I'm coming to see you. Just as he begins to head out the door, Jung's Sister tells him she's going with him. Suddenly he wants to go wo the department store with her instead. Big Shot enters his office and encounters Hong looking around. Hong drops some legl work on Big Shot's Desk. Undeterred, Big Shot is like, Did you find what you're looking for? the two men square off. Hong tells Big Shot that now that he is marrying Jung, he has definitely "passed the point of no return." Hong refers to a "secret that only you and" the Stepmother know. Hong leaves the office as Big Shot wonders what he was talking about. Then he wonders if Hong knows about the Foundation. In the laundry room, Gil reprimands Hong for dealing with Big Shot by himself since "He is slyer than you are." Hong understandably takes offense. Gil tells Hong that she thinks that the Stepmother stored the incorporation papers for the Foundation at the orphanage. since she is busy, Hong volunteers to go alone. The Stepmother and the Manager of the Small Cafe cheerfully leave a public bath. The Manager remarks that the Stepmother seems to alternate between regaining her memory and losing it again. She wants to do something with the Stepmother before she loses it again. Big Shot's Mother sits with Gigolo at the Small Cafe. They are interrupted by Jung's Mother who hands her a piece of paper with the date for the wedding. Big Shot's Mother is surprised that the date is so soon. Then Big Shot's Mother hands her a list of her wedding gift demands: two pages of items, including a sable coat for the "Mother In Law." She's like, Since this wedding is about money, give me some. They bicker. Jung's Father and Sister are in the Pawn Shop. The Stepmother looks on warily as Jung's Sister admires a high end handbag. Just as the Aunt walks in, Jung's Father orders the Assistant to take his daughter into the storeroom and show her the other handbags. The Aunt has figured out his "Agenda:" The Beauty Center goes to Jung and the Pawn Shop goes to Jung's Sister. Then the Aunt demands the Pawn Shop for herself. Jung's Father is like, We'll talk. In the Stepmother's office, Jung's Father tells the Aunt that if she had evidence strong enough to demand the Pawn Shop he would already be in jail. Since he is not in jail, he can therefore gie the Pawn Shop to his daughter, No worries. Gil and Hong are at the orphanage. The Nun has been unable to find any papers left by the Stepmother. Before they leave the orphanage, Hong plays a game of soccer with an orphan. We learn that the Stepmother as a baby was found by the Nuns under a tree at the orphanage and grew up in the orphanage. We also learn that in her 20's the Stepmother volunteered at the orphanage and for a while showed up with a foundling who was "later adopted by a good family." [Yo! @Loretto ] Hong and Gil drink coffee in a cafe. Gil reflects on the difficult life the Stepmother has lived. Gil notes that but for the Stepmother's generosity, her life would have been as difficult as the Stepmother's. The Stepmother is in her bedroom with the Manager. The Manager can't find the Stepmother's photo albums. She speculates that Jung's Father has gotten rid of anything that could help the Stepmother regain her memory. With the Manage's help, the Stepmother practices writing her name. Hong walks into the Beauty Center ad withdraws his phone from his pocket to take a call. as he does so, the charm he picked up in the alley in episode One drops out of his pocket and he doesn't notice.

Madame Goo tells Hong that she now remembers the Stepmother as one of the most ruthless loan sharks who drove his Father to his death.. Hong is like, No way! She's like, You could look it up . . .She tells him to forget about Gil and focus on his work. Hong puts his hand in his pocket and discovers that the charm is missing. In the hallway, Hong searches the floor for the charm but cannot find it. Jung appears and mockingly asks if he is looking for something. He runs out the door. She is like, WTF?

Jung's Mother learns that Big Shot's Mother spilled the beans and immediately wants to go to the Small Cafe to confront her. Jung's Father meets with the Aunt in the Stepmother's office. He tells her not to trust Mr. Oh, claiming that he was blackmailing the Stepmother. He tells her to put Mr. Oh in touch with him if he contacts her again. Jung's Father congratulates himself on getting the Aunt to confirm that Mr. Oh is the source of her information on his misdeeds. Jung's Mother storms into the Small Cafe fut encounters Gigolo rather than Big Shot's Mother. He proceeds to charm her. Jung's Father swaggers into Big Shot's office. He tells him about Mr. Oh and waves about documents for the five properties he wants to sell. Big Shot warns him to cool his jets on the sale of the properties. Jung's Father scoffs. As Jung opens the door to Big Shot's office, Big Shot is demanding that some of the properties be transferred to his name. Clueless, Jung's Father is like, You have Jung, that should be enough. Big Shot doesn't see it that way. Jung quietly closes the door. In the hallway, Jung watches her Father depart. When Big Shot emerges from his office, she lights into him. She confronts him with the audience: You're planning to take the buildings and leave me behind, plus find a way to blame it all on my Father. As he tries to shut her up, his Mother arrives on the scene. She berates Jung for being a conniving dog's mother. Jung snorts. Her Father arrives on the scene and joins the fray.

She stands in his office, flabbergasted, while he goes to the Small Cafe to break the news to her Father. Big Shot and Jung walk into the Small Cafe, and into the four-sided argument. Just as his Mother announces that she will never approve of their marriage, Big Shot announces their marriage. The four combatants seem united in a speachless, Oh Guano! response. The Aunt finds Gil's Brother and repeats the BS Jung's father told her about Mr. Oh. Gil's Brother assures her that his BS was BS. In an automobile, Hong, Gil and the Stepmother pull up in front of a store. The Stepmother walks into the store and falls. Hong runs to assist her. Before he can reach her, he has another flashback about the crowd scene that occurred when his Father died. Then he recovers. Then the Stepmother remembers "this place" because she was part of the crowd scene. The Stepmother sleeps in the car while Hong and Gil stand by a river and talk. He explains that his Father died in the store they were just at and thereafter his Mother was bullied by loan sharks who showed up at the store on a daily basis Gil tells him that he is making progress in confronting the origins of his disorder. they exchange terms of endearment. He tells her that he thinks that his past and the Stepmother's past must have intersected at the location. At the Ill Gotten Manse, Jung's Sister talks with Gil's Brother.

She resolves to put a stop to the wrongdoing and begins packing her suitcase. Jung's Mother walks in on her Sister and is disturbed to learn that she plans to move in with her Father. When Big Shot returns home, his Mother asks if he really intends to sell himself for money. He responds with some bafflegab. Gil enters the Stepmother's bedroom. When she asks her what she remembers about the store, the Stepmother gets a headache. Then the Stepmother starts talking about her "baby being sick" and "needing surgery." [NOTE: @Loretto If you are still around, it looks like the writer may ba bout to confirm your theory that Gil is the Stepmother's natural daughter.]They are interrupted by the entrance of Jung.

  6. @Pam_Van Fossen I used to laugh at stories of Halmonies accosting actresses who play nasty roles in K-Dramas but I think if I say Han Hye Rin (Jung)min a supermarket I wouldn't be able to restrain myself from slapping the dragon fruit out of her hand.
  7. I HATE TO LOVE YOU (AKA I HATE YOU BUT I LOVE YOU) (AKA LOVE RETURNS) RECAP, EPISODE 64 In his bedroom, Jung's Father is concerned that the Stepmother is making progress and may recover her memory. He reaches for his phone and calls the longterm care facility and orders them to send an ambulance and "several strong guys." In the living room, the Aunt, Gil and her Brother are happily feeding the Stepmother. In his bedroom, Jung's Father paces nervously while awaiting the arrival of the ambulance crew. In the living room, the Stepmother remembers when the Aunt and her fellow private high school students made fun of her while she collected recyclables to survive. The memory angers her. Then she begins stroking Gil's face and brightens. Gil's Brother says that even painful memories are good because they stimulate the Stepmother's brain and promote her full recovery. Jung's Father steps into the living room and makes a show about stepping outside for fresh air. While Gil's Brother and the Aunt are out of the room, two burly men enter the living room to seize the Stepmother and are confronted by Gil. Gil's Brother enters the room and he and Gil struggle with the ambulance men while Jung's Father keeps ordering them to take the Stepmother away.

They pull up to the house just as the police arrive. Standing outside the house, Jung is like, WTF? Big Shot deduces that nothing good for him is happening. The Police stand in the living room trying to make sense of the situatoin. Jung runs in and attempts to pull the Aunt off her Father. Big Shot attempts to assert authority as "Ms. Kim's lawyer," orders that the Stepmother not be moved. In his bedroom, Jung's Father confers with Big Shot. There is a falling out between thieves.

Jung;s Father pretends to apologize for "acting thoughtlessly" but claims that he was acting in the bests interests of the Stepmother. The Aunt calls BS on his performance. The Aunt accuses Jung's Father of attempting to secrete the Stepmother so he can continue looting her assets. With wounded innocence, Jung's Father falsely maintains that the Stepmother gave him the building he sold as a wedding gift. Big Shot looks like he would like to throttle Jung's Father before he gets them both into more trouble. On the principle that once you've dug a hole for yourself it's best to keep digging, Jung's Father adds a richard simmons and bull story about how the aborted sale of the shop near the police station was a simple misunderstanding. While Big Shot is deducing that the Aunt learned of the illicit property transfers from "Mr. Oh," Gil's Brother tells Jung's Father that he, Gil and the aunt will care for the Stepmother from now on. Jung's Father is happy that the subject has been changed from his illicit property transfers. As the Stepmother cowers in her bed, Jung is informing Gil that she is joining their unhappy household.

  12. @Pam_Van Fossen From the previews it looked like Prof. Jung was physically "relocating" the Stepmother himself. I suspect that In Jung will follow her mother's lead and surrender to temptation for at least several episodes. Gil's Brother is kind of making it hard for her to do the right thing.
  13. @mjmartinez @xiashenghan Thanks. I don't feel so incompetent. Usually I can find a subtitled version of a Friday episode by Monday but the internet cupboard was bare. I suspect there is an interesting story behind the source/s of these subbed versions. The subbed versions all seem to come from a single source but appear on websites that are here today, gone tomorrow, and back again the next day. Can anyone fill in the blanks? This is a curious corner of the Internet economy, to say the least.
  14. @xiashenghan I laughed when Big Shot went through his "It's really over" bit after Gil told him off. He actually looked like he was surprised. I see that Madame Goo and the Aunt continue to be unpredictable. Kind of like the cartoon where an angel is whispering into one ear and a devil into the other. We're at the midpoint now so I predict that the Stepmother will be wiggling her fingers for at least fifty more episodes -- more if the show is extended.

Big Shot tells himself that even though he has covered all of Jung's Father's tracks that he knows of, he still has a bad feeling that some evidence remains exposed. In her bedroom, Jung's Mother models her latest expensive outfits in front of her mirror. Big Shot's Mother calls for her.
