Episode 43 Translation/Recap Part 1: (Minutes 0.00 to 10.30)

 

IY has become quite suspicious of HM now. She drinks the tonic that HM got for her. HM asks her to talk to BS because he is still not happy that she did not call when she was away.

 

YR is looking at her picture that IY made, and recalling what IY said about wanting to know more on the person she draws. She thinks, "Kim In Yeong, could it be that you know who I am? Are you troubling me because of that? ".  But she says it can't be so. If IY knows, she has no reason to act unawares. "I am not the Hong Seon Hwa from then. I am Chae Yu Ran, okay?". And JH calls her to come out to have some fruits.  The 4 of them chat. DB wants to go on a winter trip.  JH likes it, but going to the beach is no good in winter, and they can't go skiing because of IY.  I think DB said that they can go to Yamagata, Japan.  They can do some driving and skiing. YR wonders if it would be okay for IY (pregnancy concerns). Then DB suggests, "may be Hokkaido?". If JH's Hanbit Apts work is successful, then DB will pay for the trip. Otherwise JH has to. Just some talk; that is all. IY wants to know if YR has gone skiing.  She says yes, but she isn't good at it.

 

BS thinks the tea that HM just brought is fragrant.  She says it is "산동백 꽃" (san dongbaek flower). I think it is Japanese Spice Bush, from some ginger family plat/tree that grows on the hills or something. HM explains that it is from a ginger like plant, with yellow flowers, etc, and BS seems to figure out what plant it is. (I have no idea what relevance this has).  Then he suddenly asks about what she thinks of YR, and HM wonders why he suddenly asked. He wants to know if she is any different in her daughter-in-law role and in her role as a working lady. HM doesn't see anything there. She likes her. She thinks YR will suit JH, because she says she doesn't have any big ambitions or anything and just wants to live happily with him. That's not too great, in BS' view. When JH doesn't have ambition/greed, at least JH's woman needs to have some. HM thinks JH won't like that kind of a woman anyway. BS: "So in your view, YR is just perfect". HM says yes, and then asks, "but why do you say that?".  He doesn't answer it.  (The man never seems to let out what he is really thinking)

 

And YR never seems to stop serving people juice. BS gets his morning juice service. He asks her about the consulting work. She has talked to DB and has will start looking into the 2018 Taeyeon plans. He wants her to see him for some fun at his office this afternoon. He will ask DB to set up an office for her at the company. (She gets an office for herself, which is reserved only for top executives!). She is happy.  

 

YR texts DB that BS will get her an office room. He is ready to leave for work. IY comes in, but is disappointed that he has done his necktie already, before she could help. She just wondered if anything was troubling him. He says that's not at all so. She needn't keep worrying about how he feels. There is no problems between them now, he says. He wants to take her to work, but she will go later to avoid anybody seeing them.

 

CH hears that SG refused further help for JM from HM, and whines about it. She whines even more that SG did no business-generation after giving HM the herbal gift. DM teases the aunt, as usual. Nothing serious. BS asks if IY knows that DM is joining Taeyeon. Yes, says DM.  Then IY send her another text - "DM, sorry. You are all I have (with me). Really sorry". JM comes in and tells DM to wear warm clothes as it's very cold today.

 

At the design office, JH is holding a meeting about their presentation tomorrow to the Hanbit residents (I suppose they are the ones with a say on which company gets the contract for remodeling). Mr. Jo is talking big as usual, about his big experience from the Paju building project. He was expecting to do the whole presentation, but JH asks IY to do the part on design details after Mr. Jo does the introductory selling of their plans. He thinks the residents will like to hear directly from the designer. Mr Yun reminds her that she has to go to the showroom today. IY thinks she can do that but will still have time to prepare for the presentation. JH wants to go with her to the showroom. Everybody looks a bit awkward now. Mr. Jo says he had asked Mr. Yun to go with her. JH pulls back - "looks like I was a bit late here".

Episode 43 Translation/Recap Part 2: (Minutes 10.30 to 21.00)

 

YR is playing chess in BS' office. How did she think of playing chess with him, he wants to know. YR says JH had told her about his competitive spirit for all such things. BS says, acting casual - "if my mind is this well-understood, I guess freeing up my loads is just fine". She seems to get what he is implying, but acts dumb - "I guess you feel that I am not in good physical condition, having just done management work so far?".  He looks up, like that is not what he was getting at.  IY: "once it gets warmer, it will be nice if we can go with JH for hiking or trekking". He senses that she is not going to openly talk about what he was driving at, and says, "sounds good. Get HM to join too"

 

DB comes in. BS asks him to wait. They will be done with chess soon. YR looks at the board and says, "this surely looks like a stalemate". BS wonders if it is. YR is sure - "yes, it will be tough to get a result here". He wants a result the next time, and she says she will learn (chess) more for that. BS asks DM to set up an office room for her near BS' office. YR acts like she isn't even paying attention, collecting chess pieces, but then asks, "you aren't planning to keep tabs on whether I am working hard, are you?". BS says, "however big an external consultant you are, you can't goof off and get paid!". She agrees to work hard. He asks her to talk to DB about the consulting paperwork/details, and DB asks her to meet him in his office.

 

DB wants to know how this happened, and YR is like, "boss, I was doing as you told me. Giving him what he wanted". DB wants to know what BS wants from her, and she says she isn't sure. Maybe he wants her to just be with JH through his recovery. HM also wants that, she thinks. He tells her that he will get her office ready soon. When she comes to work, just keep checking on BS and JH. But YR wants to know what exactly the 'boss' expects her to do. DB: "as this situation warrants, you just need to do what I ask from time to time". On any matters on her job specific knowledge and details, she should talk to the person whose card he had given earlier. Don't make any mistakes in the work."So I should avoid meetings where job specific knowledge may be needed. When a report needs to be made, I should just ask in advance for help on that, right?". He says he is the only one that she had formally dealt with so far, so just leave meetings and reports to him to handle. She is okay with that.

 

But now YR brings up something new to DB. JH has told her that somebody had deliberately pushed him off the cliff ad that it wasn't a slippage accident. Seeing his reaction, YR asks, "You knew of this?". He tells her that he was the one JH told first about it. He knows JH is also trying to get it re-investigated. He wants her to report to him if JH is on to anything, so as to not let JH do something crazy. As she gets up to leave, DB asks if there is anything he doesn't know of, about his dad. YR asks, "so are there things that you actually don't know, boss?", and leaves with a sarcastic smirk.

 

JH gets a call from "Famous Planning", the private investigator that DB had set up. He has made the accident investigation report, that he can email. JH will review it and call back if anything is missing. YR comes in and hears him say that he really needed a re-investigation, though he knows that it was a while ago. She asks what it was, that made him look so serious. JH says that it was already investigated once, so nothing is expected to come out of this. "Was it investigated already?", asks YR, and JH tells her about his brother doing it before. She updates him about finding a chess board in BS' office and playing chess, and about her getting an office soon. She asks about IY and hears that she is out and wil be busy with tomorrow's presentation. JH is also busy, but he says he will call when he gets off work. YR will go wrap up at the Foundation and wait for his call. She wants to go for a movie then.

 

A Taeyeon director board member (Director Kim) is talking to DB. Basically trying to form an alliance with DB, but apparently with no specific plans for now. He tells that he, along with Dir Pyeon, Dir Jeon, are all DB's "fans".  He wants to know what DB expects from this Hanbit Apts project. DB says he wants to see success. Director Kim tries to pry out of DB if he really wants to see his brother take it to the end and succeed. DB acts the nice guy and says he plans to support JH. Dir Kim tells him that if JH goes all the way on this, the "situation can turn inside out". DB continues to act the nice guy who wants only success. Dir Kim says that he can be called anytime if DB "needs help". Now DB gives a hint in a safe way like he always does - "in a while, there may be something where I may need your help". Dir Kim clearly understands the situation, shakes hands saying "okay", and leaves. Nicely done!

 

DB's PI calls. He has a set up a meeting with another guy who was in the same jail cell with Pak Du Sik. DB runs out, and runs into CG who says he has something important to tell him. DB wants him to tell him right now, but CG feels they can't talk there. DB leaves saying they can talk later, then. He has an important appointment to go to.

 

The guy was in the same cell as PDS at the Seongdong prison. But his head is always hazy... At least till he gets some money, I suppose. DB asks him if it's true that PDS said some odd things the day before he died.  The guy wants to know what relationship DB has with PDS - "You look like him; that is why!"... DB gives him an envelope of money, and now he is ready to talk - "He said he has to die on his own responsibility, for his son not to end up like him". There was somebody who was a close associate, and it was to keep an agreement with him. The guy doesn't know anything about that person.

 

DB walks to the company, and wonders "You placed the blame for your mistakes on my real father, huh? On the promise that you will have me as your son?"

Episode 43 Translation/Recap Part 3: (Minutes 21.00 to Episode end)

 

Mr. Yun and IY are at Taeyeon's showroom, picking the items they can use for the Hanbit Apts. DM has started working there, and Mr. Yun introduces IY and himself to her, saying they are from Taeyeon Headquarters. Mr. Yun goes to check with the designers at the showroom, about the schedule for the month, and IY asks him to take his time. DM then tells IY that she is still upset at her, but is indulging her only because of her mom, for whom things are so tough thanks to IY now. But DM does tell IY that she wants to know what happens, because she will help IY from outside -- which brings a smile to IY's face. DM tells her about SG and JM taking gifts to the Foundation. IY wants her to stop them if they continue to meet HM but DM doesn't think they will, as they have refused further help from HM. DM will continue to be IY's spy, though she makes angry faces at IY.

 

YR gets a call from JH that he will be late due to tomorrow's presentation, and can't go for a movie. She says fine. HM wants to see a movie, and YR offers to go with her. HM will buy her dinner for that.

 

IY is rehearsing her presentation, and JH comes in with some food for her. He will stay till she gets off work, but once DB comes in, he leaves, asking DB to give her company. IY and DB go home later. HM and YR are out for a movie and BS is in his library, says the maid.

 

DB meets BS in his office. He is reading some book that he shows him (but the title is in Chinese, so I don't know what book. Sorry). DB feels that whenever he thinks of BS, it is the picture of him reading a book that comes to mind. DB: "Maybe because you read a lot, you're more upright in your business than others". BS is surprised but will gladly take the compliment. DB: "But a profit-chasing businessman may at times have situations where one needs to go too far, right?"... BS looks up. "Father, at such times, would you sacrifice people to protect the company, or would you protect people and sacrifice the company?".  BS asks if DB has had a case of "going too far" that he is not aware of. DB says it's not so. He was asking just for future reference when he runs things - to decide whether people or company profit should come first. BS says it's to make those decisions that the director board guys get paid. Then he continues that he really doesn't have an answer to this. He has always taken decisions that he felt were the best. "The best?" asks DB. Yes, says BS. But once he made the decision, he took the responsibility for that choice. That is what a true business head is. DB walks out and thinks of what he just heard - "Take the responsibility for the choice? Is it to take responsibility for choosing my father's death, that you raised me, Chairman Kang Baek San?".

 

DB gets a text from CG and goes down to meet him in front of the house. He has something to tell that is tough to discuss tomorrow at the company, which is why he called DB out. (I will leave in the full conversation, as it has hints bit nothing much definitive, about what happened earlier).

 

CG: "What happened to that mobile phone?"
DB: "What phone? What are you talking about?"
CG: "The one you asked me to get for you 3 months ago" (DB seems to remember something.)
CG: "Kim Jae Min asked the cops to trace that phone"
DB: "Who is Kim Jae Min?".
CG: "The one you had on the world phone at that time" (Now DB seems to get a hang of things).
DB: "Wasn't it used and properly disposed of?"
CG: "I couldn't tell you at that time, but there was an accident"
DB: "Accident?"
CG: "In the process of our trying to take the phone away from him, Kim Jae Min lost consciousness and remained so for a while"
DB: "This isn't anything I know about"
CG: "That is correct" (said like, 'that is how it should be')
DB: "Then, is there any need to talk to me about this? Other than you and I, nobody can know that I had asked you to do it. Do you understand?"
CG: "Yes"

 

IY comes out and interrupts them from the conversation. (The Episode End)

Episode 44 Translation/Recap Part 1: (Minutes 0.00 to 11.00)

 

CG leaves after the conversation (as at the end of Ep 43) and IY wants to go with DB and get some ice cream. HM and YR come home after their movie. HM thinks it is too cold for them to get ice cream now, but YR thinks that it's great to have ice cream in a warm place when it's really cold outside. HM is happy to see them go out. HM and YR walk inside, and IY tells DB that she finds them to be very close. DB: "Are you jealous". She just laughs it off.

 

YR is upset at the picture IY made and throws it in her closet. JH comes to apologize for not taking her to a movie, but she is fine because HM took her to one. HM and JH are both precious people for her, she says. She wants to know if everything is okay between IY and her office mates, after she went away at a crucial time. JH thinks everything is just fine. YR says she was worried, because IY looked like something was troubling her. JH says he knows nothing. He doesn't know much about IY though they work in the same office. He agrees to pay more attention.

 

IY wants to know what the discussion with CG was. It looked serious. Nothing special, says DB. They talk about YR going to work at Taeyeon. She wonders if it may be uncomfortable for YR, who is the type who can be uncomfortable with some people. She thinks that is the case between her and Maid Nam. Also with Mr. Jang. (IY is trying to pry out any intel, of course). DB says he hasn't noticed that, as she got along great with his mom. He asks if IY isn't a bit uncomfortable with CG too, after all. She kinda agrees that she is. They continue walking back home.

 

IY comes to the kitchen and sees HM and YR being very friendly, discussing the movie they saw and HM talking about what kind of hairstyle suits YR.  IY has brought some ice cream. She also wants to go for movies with YR and HM.  IY then goes to her room, wondering "Is it only HM that is the closest person to YR? Maybe Mr. Jang was only doing things for HM?"

 

The aunt is saying blah-blah about her shop income deceasing and all that.  DM tries to get on her nerves. Nothing serious. CH is still whining about how she should've gone to the foundation with JM - she could've done more with the trip, like business-generation. DM: "that bus already left, so just drink this beer!" (haha).

 

JM is looking at the bio blurbs of BS and HM on the internet, and DM brings in some snacks. DM says she is pretty happy with the work at the Taeyeon showroom. JM was concerned that it is Taeyeon. DM says she was too, but she creates stories on how it is all great now. JM worries that something is wrong with IY's designs in Namhae. DM says there is no worry.

Episode 44 Translation/Recap Part 2: (Minutes 11.00 to 21.00)

 

YR brings water for BS and is now openly in charge of his medicine matter. She sets up an alarm on his phone to remind him of the pills.  HM comes in. BS asks if YR can join him for a luncheon conference today. It one of his monthly business meetings, and it will be good if she is with him. HM says it will be good for her to help BS and also network with people.

 

YR finds JH nicely dressed and ready for the presentation. She tells him that and says that it will go well. DB comes out and asks if he is nervous. JH says it's just a meeting to convince the apartment residents; there is much more to go after this, so he can't get nervous already. DB says he knows of JH's guts. YR is surprised, and DB tells her that JH was into extreme sports and all that. Not the type who gets scared. JH asks DB to properly escort his chief designer to work today, as it's important. YR tells JH about the business luncheon she will be going to. DB gets a look of concern on his face, but he wishes her well.

 

A time-killer scene at the herbal shop. SG can't believe that CH would act so friendly with first time customers, calling her "eonni" and all that. Then some other friend in her "business networking" group (at the sauna house, it seems!) calls. Looks like the aunt had taken side-dishes that SG had made and given it to her friends. She admits it. SG is annoyed because she had made it for IY, but anyway IY wasn't going to take it. CH says that SG's hot pepper paste (고추장 - gochujang) is now famous in Gangnam, because somebody distributed it among the ladies at the Cultural Center there.

 

YR is telling HM that she is about to leave for the luncheon, and sees a gift basket on HM's desk. HM says it is puffed-rice cookies (들깨강정 - deulkkaegangjeong - actually I don't know what to call it) given by somebody she knows. It is the gift that SG had given her the other day.

 

BS is about to leave for the luncheon with YR, and JH comes with IY to tell him that they were leaving for the Hanbit Apts residents session. BS wishes them well. YR wants JH to call and tell her how it went.

 

BS leaves with YR, and IY tells JH as they walk out that those two have become very close lately. JH thinks BS' views about YR seem to have changed a lot now. When IY wonders why, JH says it may be because of him. BS is trying to make sure of things for JH's sake. IY brings up the matter of how HM introduced YR to JH. She knows of HM's bags being stolen and YR helping. The second meeting with YR was by accident at the hospital where he was. HM had to leave due to something urgent at work, and asked YR to watch him rather than leave him alone in the hospital room. IY thinks that, knowing HM's nature, it wouldn't have been  easy for her to ask for such a favor.  JH says that accepting the request wouldn't have been easy (for YR) either. That is why his mother thinks that YR is destined to be with him. IY doesn't look too convinced of that explanation.

 

The team is all ready for the Hanbit Apts presentation, with brochures and everything.  They leave, as DB looks from afar. He calls Director Kim (who had met him recently offering to "help him") to ask for a favor. DB wants to have a meal with him and a Director Jeon Sang Jun who seems to be a friend of Dir Kim.

Episode 44 Translation/Recap Part 3: (Minutes 21.00 to Episode end)

 

CG comes in, as DB had called him in to wrap up what they discussed yesterday (the world phone matter). DB says that the phone he used at that time was not in his name, and it was deactivated after the use. "It will be impossible to trace, right?". CG says yes. DB: "So are you done with whatever was your worry?". CG nods yes. DB wants to know if any trace is left of CG while getting the burner phone. CG says there is no need worry about that.  So we hear nothing new here.

 

The team comes out from the meeting to explain the remodeling plan to the residents. JH wants to take them to eat somewhere. Mr. Yun and Ms. Ha are not too much for seafood. They want beef. Mr. Jo calls a place he knows nearby to reserves the seats.

 

HM brings home the gifts from SG and gives it straight to Ms. Kim in the kitchen to take home and have! Maid Nam and Ms. Kim love the puffed rice candy/cookie. They know that it is home-made. Ms. Kim thinks only very few know how to make this at home.

 

YR finds DB in the activity room, and asks where IY was, during those few days. He asks why she needs to know. YR: "We are in one family, no?". Now DB gets pretty harsh on her - "IY is in my family, but you aren't, are you? No need for you to be curious about that. Anyway, you won't be there for long". She asks, "no matter how fake I am, isn't it to your benefit for me to be there for long?".  DB: "Rather than you go long with JH, you both leaving quickly is what's to my benefit". But she deadpans, "so it's like you haven't even talked to IY about it, huh?" and continues, "whether it's me who will be there for the long run, or whether it's IY... is what I'm curious about".

 

The team is at a grilled beef joint. They all know that JH can't drink but others can. So 4 glasses are filled, but IY says she doesn't drink either. Mr. Yun won't buy that, because his friend at IY's former company has said that she drinks like a fish. Now she has to say that her stomach is upset! The three office-mates push her and suddenly JH downs the drink for her (which I think is supposedly a chivalrous thing that guys do for girls in Korea). Now IY is concerned, but he says that one glass is fine. Anyway, he diffused the situation. Then he does it once more and again manages to handle the situation. They get out, and three drunk office mates leave. JH wants to wait till he gets a bit sober, to avoid suspicion at home. She apologizes, and they take a walk. She thinks she could have managed to nicely refuse drinks there and he didn't have to do that. But JH says he wanted to do that for her. He jokes that she owes her one, once again. She thinks to herself, "Sorry JH. I have made such a big mistake that I can never repay my debts to you". He talks about the relief after all the hard work. He wants her to tell him if anything is hard on her; he will try to help.

 

HM and IY are at the Taeyeon showroom for some shopping.  DM sees them and hides. She goes to one of the rooms there and calls IY to tell her that her "mother in law" has come there. The door is open, and YR hears it from outside. DM says that the weirder thing is that the woman who looks like Seon Hwa, whom she had said she had seen before, is with that mother in law. Then DM makes it even worse. DM: "You also said you saw Seon Hwa, right? Where did you see her? Perhaps the one you saw is also this woman, no?"  (Episode End)

JH definitely knows who IY is now.. He let her have it at work and then he went out to drink in the last episod

 

It has not happened yet, till the end of Ep 44, but I am looking forward to get to it in a few days.  It was only  matter of time, for him to find out though.

 

But how will this story evolve to the end? It is pretty tough to guess what will happen.  Most possibilities are pretty bad, the way DB and IY have screwed things up!

 

As of now, it looks like DB was the one that SJ had talked to, just before his death, as the Word Phone was in his possession (unless he had already given it to CG to get rid of, by then).  It looks like he was using it to discuss things with YR during that period...  Plenty of mystery still to solve.

From the clips on youtube, YR told IY who she really is and IY collapsed and taken to the hospital. Then  in another episode YR pushed her down the stairs? (OMG I thought YR was her friend). Both of these opportunities she could of said she lost the baby. I want to know if anybody can tell me did she?

Hi @Carm C, welcome to the thread!

 

I started translating/recapping this drama only after 27 episodes had been aired and we found that nobody was subbing this drama. I have caught up to about 9 episodes behind now. I hope to be up-to-date with all aired episodes (at least in watching the episodes, though probably not in translating) by the end of the weekend.  I can hopefully answer your question in another 4-5 days if nobody else has answered by then!

 

It is curious, if she doesn't use falling as a reason to claim a miscarriage!

I was confused in the last episode if it was YR who was helping IY by pushing her to use that as an excuse for a miscarriage or if YR wanted to push her for real and IY realized this when she fell. Whatever it was YR seemed to me to be helping her when I saw her not allow the father in law into the ambulance or later when he went to the hospital and she seemed to have been released.

He knows now because he confronted her later and even confessed he loved her. Unfortunately, she said she loved DB (which is a huge lie as she loves JH but she is determined to find out what she needs to. I do not know what JH is doing because the looks he is recently giving DB are not the loving younger brother anymore to me. I am wondering if he will start competing against his brother due to IY's rejection. I also hope he does not give up but its a very complicated situation that IY has created. My guess is they will not have a chance to be together until the end though.

You both got me very curious, so I jumped ahead and watched today's episode 54 just now. 

 

Quick summary:  Yes,  IY did push her off the stairs though she said she didn't do it when they both had a coffee.  IY couldn't believe that YR made the plan to help her with the miscarriage story, during that split second when BS slipped on the stairs first (but IY didn't argue what YR said - that it was BS who asked to take the stairs and she hadn't panned the whole scenario or anything).  Anyway, it was YR who turned IY's phone off when they walked out of the ankle treatment, and told IY that from that moment on she was no longer pregnant and that they would say that she had a miscarriage.  So she was trying to help, though IY was not too happy for YR butting in and doing this all by herself.  During the coffee IY argues that she can't stay in that family without the pregnancy, but YR puts some sense into her that there was no need for a baby, and that DB loves her enough. And she should know by now how the parents are, too.  Later the miscarriage becomes official, as YR called HM about it (and HM calls DB, asking him to come home without telling anything, so he guessed it too). HM was comforting IY after taking her to her room with YR, saying DB and she are young and so can have a baby any time, etc.  YR explains to HM that IY fell when BS slipped and IY tried to grab him.

 

Interestingly, YR tells DB when he runs in at home, that the reason why she didn't call was because IY was in the surgery room - and lost the baby. I wonder why she said surgery though... She also called JH, who was recalling yelling at IY (about why she didn't tell DB the moment she came to the house first and saw JH). She asked him to come and comfort DB, and that she do the care for IY.

 

Other details in the episode. DM asks SG about SonHwa and SG says she would forgive her. DM was surprised, but SG gives the reason that she and her husband had thought that making a big deal of what SonHwa (YR) did would affect IY and make her blame herself, as she was the one who brought SonHwa home. Even DM gets emotional hearing SG talk about it.  SG had at first talked about whether IY must have had seaweed soup like one is supposed to do on the birthday, as it is IY's birthday.  In the next scene, YR, who had asked the maids to make seaweed soup, takes it to IY who was surprised that YR knew that it was her birthday. YR says that she can't forget, because IY took her first to their home on her birthday.  YR also said that doing what she was doing alone during this whole period must have been tougher on IY than really having a baby or losing one. She asked her to eat, so as to get healthy achieve whatever her objective was, when she threw her life away and got into this.  "Don't think about anybody else, but you", said YR. All of that seemed to make IY get very emotional and cry big-time.

 

There was nothing significant in the chat between the brothers over a drink.  The episode ending scene was a bit creepy, as BS says, "Min Ju came. I went out when I heard some sound, and it was Min Ju. I asked her to go upstairs and sleep".  HM asks why his face looks like that and he just looks lost.

Episode 45 Translation/Recap Part 1: (Minutes 0.00 to 10.20)

 

DM continues to talk (rather loudly) to IY from the Taeyeon show room consulting room, with YR eavesdropping outside. DM wonders if "that man" won't catch her too. After making such an impression on him in the parking garage when IY had the pregnancy visit, he would recognize her face easily.  YR walks away and IY tells DM that she doesn't think that the woman is SeonHwa.

 

YR is clearly rattled, and HM leaves as she gets a message for something urgent at the office. The other sales agent tells DM who the madam was.

 

JH tells IY that the chairman wants to meet them. Mr. Jo says he is going to the toilet but Ms. Ha thinks it's for a smoke and takes him to task for that. He is so frustrated at that, because his wife and kids are on his case at home too. So frustrated that he even gets a posterior expulsion that makes it further embarrassing.  In BS' office, JH and IY tell him that the session with the Hanbit Apts residence went well. Many residents told IY later that they liked the designs. They will know the results announcement a week later. He asks about the external construction work and then repeats it later, showing that he had already forgotten what JH just told him.

 

Mr. Jo takes the report on the Hanbit Apts presentation (which he got Mr. Yun to do) to DB. He expects that their designs will end up winning them the project contract. DB acts like that is great. M. Jo thinks JH and IY are getting too close. It was strange that he even downed her drinks for her last night when they all went out. DB smiles. He tells him that immediate boss who pours drinks to a staff member who just came back from illness is even stranger. Mr. Jo should have cared like Division Chief Kang did. Once again, Mr. Jo has to leave the office with his tail between his legs. (Haha)

 

YR is worried that DM is now in Taeyeon too. She thinks IY already suspects her, and wonders why she can't just check it with her. "If so I would've rather..." (She doesn't complete it, but I think she is not that reluctant to tell IY who she is). She messages her 'boss' to call her, as she has something to discuss.

Episode 45 Translation/Recap Part 2: (Minutes 10.20 to 21.45)

 

JH and IY run into DB and chat about the good work yesterday and JH thanks for the marketing team's help. They ask him to join for lunch, but he has an "appointment" (with the 'consultant', we presume). He thanks JH for being the 'black night' last night (that is what they call the guy who drinks to help a girl). IY says she didn't tell DB about it, and JH wonder how he knew.

 

IY and JH join the team at the canteen. JH says perhaps the chairman might have a lunch with them. Mr. Yun and Ms. Ha feel free enough to tell him that they might be uncomfortable. They had lunch with him once before and they were scared. Mr. Yun thinks he is too charismatic. JH is not much like the dad, they say. Then they start on the 'black night' work by JH last night. Mr. Jo thinks they look good together. IY coughs and JH goes to get more water for her, leaving the team to wonder what's going on.

 

Director Kim has arranged a lunch for DB with Director Jeon. DB says nice things and a bunch of roundabout nonsense, trying to become his friends but Dir Jeon looks uncomfortable. Dir. Kim want them to try some golf but Dir. Jeon is only into tennis.  So on. They don't get to any serious business talk here.

 

JH is in the corridor recalling his dad's memory issues. He too knows that this is trouble.

 

The kitchen maids tell IY about the puffed rice candy that HM gave them. IY says she always liked it because her mom used to make it for her when she was young. She takes some for the family in the living room. IY says, in a casual way, that it is what HM got as gifts but had given to the maids. BS loves it and asks HM why she gave it to the maids and not to him. HM says he forgot that he liked that candy. HM didn't know that it was homemade, or she would have at least tried it. IY says her mother used to make it because her dad liked it. Now YR wonders if it is a gift from IY's mom. JH wants her to try it, as she may not have had it in the US. She says she doesn't eat much at night.

 

CH has got some lady in Gangnam who liked SG's side dishes, who ordered some of it if she would sell. SG is not interested in making and selling it. CH goes on an on about all the items SG can make and sell. She will handle all the business for a 'Gangnam delivery service'. SG has to only make the side dishes. Even DM thinks it is a good idea, though she is probably her being sarcastic to the aunt. (Too many time killer scenes with nothing happening in this episode)

 

JM wants to do voluntary work for Taeyeon Foundation (some kids' lunch box delivery or something), and SG thinks it is not a bad idea. She might help too.

Episode 45 Translation/Recap Part 3: (Minutes 21.45 to Episode end)

 

DB asks if JH is not having a weekend date with YR. And JH realizes that he forgot about taking YR to a movie. DB offers that they can join him and IY so he can 'teach him' how to have a good date with his own woman. But JH can't do it tomorrow, as he has to see that investigator. JH reviewed the files of the earlier investigation, but there was nothing there. So he wants an actual re-investigation. DB is not happy about this. He calls the investigator to ask him to do what is needed. He also texts, apparently YR, to go with JH tomorrow.

 

In the kitchen, IY asks YR what she is doing today. Spending time with JH, says YR. DM calls IY to urgently tell her that JM is planning to do volunteer work at the foundation, probably to do his own investigation himself. Nothing she tells him is working. She wonder if they should rather go to the police, but IY says they can't do that. IY: "I was trying to a get an outline, but it looks like we have to observe more. Let us decide after observing what steps they take on their side".  YR overhears that and wonders what "outline" and what "decision after observation" this was all about.

 

HM asks IY if she doesn't have any Ob/Gyn visits, and she says it's still once a month. Not yet time. DB is all excited that he will join this time and finally be there to see Sssigssig on ultrasound. Last time a crazy woman stopped him from it. YR hears that and puts 2 and 2 together on what she heard DM say about having met IY's man at the Ob/Gyn parking garage. YR goes to her room and says to herself - "Unbelievable, Kim In Yeong. What on earth is this scheme you have cooked up?"

 

In her room, IY is thinking - "if mother or YR has any connection at all to my dad's death, and if that's why JM got the support, won't they be uneasy to see JM in the Taeyeon Foundation office. Isn't there I was I can use their uneasiness?".  And she gets a mssage from YR saying she is texting an address where she wants to meet. They need to talk. Quietly.

 

YR is at a restaurant, and IY comes in saying she thought YR was out with JH and was surprised to get the text. After some pleasantries, YR comes straight to the point. "You asked me if I had any close friends, right? Thanks to you, I now remember one.  Kim In Yeong, long time no see. I am Seon Hwa". IY asks "Seon Hwa? You mean you are Seon Hwa?"  YR: "Knowing it all, why are you so shocked? Cheating, hiding things on deceiving each other is no fun. Let's stop it now.

 

IY is dumbstruck. (To be fair, despite initial suspicions, she had never got any full proof on YR's identity, and she was actually thinking that she might not be Seon Hwa, based on what she told DM -- so her shock is understandable. Also remember what DB once said that he paid for some plastic surgery by YR).

 

YR calls for some wine and asks. "It's been, what, 13 or 14 years?  Shouldn't you be happy and having a toast with me?"... Shes goes on - "You can drink, you know. Your identity as an orphan, and this child of DB's... None of it is true, like in my case, right?".  (Episode End)

Oh boy, the first part of Ep 46 is something else.  The encounter between IY and YR, with everything out in the open... Here it is, in its full glory.  I will do the rest of the episode later.

 

Episode 46 Translation/Recap Part 1:  (Minutes 0.00 to 13.00)

 

IY wants to know how YR can even sit in front of her and say that she is Seon Hwa. Was she expecting to keep this a secret, so far? YR says she expected IY to find out at some point anyway. She was always hoping to explain everything that happened and ask for forgiveness, whenever IY were to find out. IY: "So tell me about how you came back as Che Yu Ran, and why you did to us what you did back then". YR says she doesn't know where to start. She lost everything to private loan sharks and barely managed to reach USA. She was ruined. She worked as a janitor, babysitter, restaurant dishwasher and bartender. She knew nobody there. IY: "Loan sharks?". YR continues, "that is why I went in as a maid to that house" (the grandma's place in the US, it seems). "There was an elderly with dementia there. I took the hits, when spoons were thrown at me. I smiled when I was cursed"... She goes on with how she felt so low about herself and even beneath a human being. She lived two years as a slave like that and got accepted into that family (Again we assume she is talking about the grandma, and it is unclear if it's a truth or lie; but she didn't say "grandma" here; only "an old person with dementia"). That's how she became Chae Yu Ran. IY chimes in, "so a happy ending, huh?". 

 

YR says that's not how it was. After that, she never had a peaceful day. She was always in pain and distress.  IY smirks about that. "Oh, you were in pain and distress, huh?".  IY hardly cares if YR was like that but asks how dare YR even talk to her about any pain and distress.  She drags her out and throws her to the side of the road.

 

IY: "Do you have any idea how my life was? You dare to come and tell me of your hard time and pain. You should rather have died. You should have died!" YR: "Damn right, I should've died!". IY: "But you lived on, no?"... It is basically a screaming match. YR gets up saying "what do you know about me? Do you even know why I stole the money, and how pathetic I was in the US? What do you even know?". IY: "To you, it's always about how bad it is for you, and how hard it is for you, huh?".  She also kept wondering at first, why YR (Seon Hwa) did it. Did her mom and dad do something wrong to her? Did she do anything wrong to her? Or was YR a bad one to start with and had that plan right from the start?  Now YR cries at her - "You know I wasn't like that!". IY: "No. How would I know that? If I knew about you, I wouldn't have become your friend or brought you into our house. How could you do that to me?".

 

Now YR talks about how appreciative she was for IY's family for taking her out of the orphanage, and about how happy she was when she was with them. She prayed for that period of her life to never end.  She now gets to some details. During the time when IY was making plans to leave for USA for studies, somebody met YR, saying he was an uncle of hers and that her real mother was looking for her. As IY was going to leave for the US and she thought she would be all alone again, all she could do was to believe that guy. But as she found out, he was no uncle but a loan shark. It was to collect the debt of a mother that she had never even met, that the loan shark was after her. IY asks why she didn't tell IY and her parents. Or they could have found a way out. YR: "I know. But back then I was a clueless kid who knew nothing. And how could I ask your family for that kind of big money? Your dad was such a busy constructor then and I thought this would not be anything serious for him. You were all set to leave for the US, and I had no idea where I would even go".  The loan sharks threatened her that they would kill her if she didn't give the money. She thought she could run away to some place where the loan sharks wouldn't find her, and live quietly with her mom or whoever it was. So she took the house deed, signature seal and went out (I don't think she said for what purpose, but I assume to use as collateral for a loan? I'm unclear here). But the loan sharks knew she would do that and came all the way there and took that way.

 

IY says she is lying, and YR begs her to believe her. She isn't lying (and doesn't seem to be).  She thought she would pay back that money, whatever it took. Even now she wants to do it. But IY asks what the point is, in doing it now. "Can you give back the lost time? Can you get a dead person back?". She screams that her dad is dead. YR is learning that for the first time and she is now looking even more crushed. IY tells her that, thanks to his useless daughter, who brought in a friend who cheated him, he lost everything, had to do odd jobs to support his wife and children, and in the end died, all alone in his work shed. YR says she had no idea, but IY yells at her that of course she wouldn't have. She wouldn't even care to know. YR pleads with her that all she thought all along was to repay her family. She was living her whole life trying to fix what she had done to her.

 

Now IY just unloads on her, and YR cries like crazy, dropping to her knees. IY says what YR did was nothing that can be forgiven, nor be handled by repaying. YR: "I really don't know why I did it. This is the truth". IY keeps going after her, and now grabs her by the neck, shaking and throwing her. She is like a mad woman now. IY blames herself in all kinds of ways for having ever taken YR (SeonHwa) as a friend. She too died many deaths. YR pleads with her that it is not IY's fault, and it was all her fault. "It was all from my selfishness. It was my fault. I'm sorry".  IY is still not stopping - "you have no right to even cry, or to be sorry". YR says she should have just died and keeps crying that she will keep repaying IY until she dies, only to hear the reply that she won't be forgiven until she dies either. After all IY had died too, the moment her dad died. She was already dead when she came to the Taeyeon family. YR slumps down further and keeps wailing, as the scene changes.

So, here is what I can gather as the summary of YR's story.  She got duped by loan sharks who were supposedly after some debt they say her real mother (whom she hadn't met) owed.  IY was about to leave for studies in the US, and YR thought she had nowhere to go. She was a clueless girl, and thought she could escape with that mother somewhere that the loan sharks wouldn't find.  So she took the house papers and the signature seal out (I did not hear her say for what purpose, unless I missed it - so I assume it was to use it for some loan or something).  The loan sharks caught her and did the rest.  She managed to get to the US and work menial jobs, before ending up as a maid to the harsh old lady with dementia, who took her into her family.  So I assume that a grandma exists, though the story of her being a real-estate tycoon is probably made up.

 

I thought I had heard her mention something like "even a visa was ready. what could I do?" in that early episode (I need to go back and check if I heard it right), when she first found out from the real estate office that the IY family lost the house and moved, and she went to the river bank to cry. Perhaps the loan sharks set her up to escape to the US, to prevent loose ends in what they were doing.

Episode 46 Translation/Recap Part 2:  (Minutes 13.00 to 22.00)

 

SG is thanking her husband for helping with getting JM up again, and for somebody thankful to him paying his bills too. Then there is a whole discussion involving the aunt over some snack that DM brought and about the ajussi who sells that snack, his wife's uterine cancer and all that.  SG says that being together is more important than money for couples. SG gets a call to see if she would work as a maid, which she once had to do. Se says she doesn't do it anymore.

 

JH meets the PI that DB set him up to meet. JH says he found nothing more than what the cops reports had. The PI agrees on that. That is what he had found when DB got him to investigate (a lie, of course). JH asks the PI for a re-investigation. The PI says that their investigation would be limited because JH was unconscious for a while after the accident.  That was a goof, because JH immediately asks who told him about his being unconscious. He hadn't told him that. That was only after he fell. He remembers everything until the accident. "After doing the investigation then, you didn't know that?". The PI apologizes and says that he must've been mistaken, due to some other case. JH looks suspicious.

 

Maid Nam informs HM and BS that YR and IY are out shopping. They are happy that the future daughters in law are getting along. Some casual chat between them. Nothing important.

 

DB gets a call from the PI that he couldn't stop JH from asking for a re-investigation. DB wants him to make no mistakes and to make sure that JH won't go to somebody else.

 

IY and YR comes back. The guys find them tired and YR makes excuses that they took too long as they kept looking at this and that. DB thanks her for finding time for IY, and YR says "However busy I am, shouldn't I help take care of IY?".  IY just goes to her room saying she is tired.

 

Later, during a fruits session, BS talks about HM's wish to see IY and YR being close friends, and JH says that they already are. BS wants IY to help YR later when she is pregnant, like she is helping IY now. JH looks a bit annoyed - "we aren't even married, so why do you say such a thing?". BS jokes why he is makinv a big deal when YR is just fine with it. JH doesn't want his dad to joke like that. HM thinks IY doesn't look too well, but IY says she's fine. HM: Why not tell people at the company that you both are together?.  Before IY could object, DB says they have been thinking about it.

Episode 46 Translation/Recap Part 3:  (Minutes 22.00 to the end)

 

BS doesn't eat much at breakfast, so HM asks Maid Nam to call a Mrs. Jin who used to work there before, so he can get her food that he liked. Maid Nam thinks she is away because her son was in Philippines, but she will try to get in touch.

 

IY still looks tired. YR says she knows that IY hates seeing her, but she wants IY to think of what is best for both of them.

 

Another aunt scene at the herbal shop. (I like the character, but I will skip the details to save time, as it is mostly time-filler scenes). She is asking SG about the time she worked as a maid.

 

The office mates notice that IY looks tired and uncomfortable. She goes out saying she needs to look at some samples she had found (of interior design items, I suppose).

 

BS asks Attorney Hwang again about releasing the affiliation of Taeyeon Retail (something we heard him ask long ago). The lawyer is puzzled why BS keeps insisting on that, as it is a strong subsidiary. He asks if BS plans to sell it off or have a collaboration with another firm or something.  BS says it is none of that. he just wants that subsidiary to get released from Taeyeon so it can start doing distribution for other companies too.  He is thinking of transferring it to one of his employees.  The Lawyer is surprised and asks who it is (we can suppose that it is CG). Before he could answer, DB comes in and interrupts them, as he has some report to show BS.

 

IY collapses in the corridor, holding her stomach. IY and JH find her. He carries her to the car and YR drives her off to the hospital, after she tells him that he still shouldn't drive and that he should take care of informing DB.  JH picks up the hairband that IY had dropped, and it is made of a scarf or something (like the one we saw him keeping as a memory item with him).

 

DB suspects that something is up between BS and the lawyer. He thinks that he needs to get Attorney Hwang to his side.  JH comes to tell him of the IY matter. He tries to call YR whose phone is off. JH thinks YR may be still driving, so he wants to wait a bit. DB runs off asking about the nearest hospital.

 

IY wakes at the hospital and finds YR by her side. YR tells her that it is stress-induced stomach cramps. From not eating and sleeping well. YR: "what are you trying to do? maybe try something even more daring and brazen?". IY agrees that she has been daring and brazen. YR thinks that is not the InYeong she knew. IY: "Just as you aren't the SeonHwa I knew, I am not the InYeong you knew. Kim InYeong dies a while ago". She talks about how she thought she could lie her way into finding out the lies and secrets (of Taeyeon) and stop it, but her lies only made them get sincerely close to her. YR says she doesn't understand such things. That is not how she is. IY suddenly remembers and asks about DB. Does he know?. JH must have told him, says YR.

 

YR stops IY from rushing to call DB.  She has not said which hospital they are at. YR is about to tell IY what she is planning for IY (which we can guess), but they get surprised at something/somebody (Episode End)
