Recap: Queen In-Hyun’s Episode 11


This week we learn lessons of courtship, Hee-Jin and Boong-Do style.

Dong-Min and Hee-Jin are walking arm-in-arm down the red carpet, smiling and waving at the fans. As Hee-Jin looks around the crowd she sees a familiar figure- Kim Boong-Do from her “dreams.” Hee-Jin’s arm drop from Dong-Min as she looks at Boong-Do with longing, relief, and happiness. Boong-Do smiles in return- he blinks once as if to signal that he understands everything that Hee-Jin had delivered in her expression.

Dong-Min grabs Hee-Jin’s hand and starts to pull her down the red carpet. Hee-Jin struggles to keep her eye on Boong-Do but she can no longer see him in the crowd.

Hee-Jin is now pacing backstage of the award ceremony. Soo-Kyung approaches her and asks why she didn’t smile along with her partner down the red carpet. Hee-Jin replies that it was because she thought she saw someone. Soo-Kyung asks who and Hee-Jin tells her truthfully that she thought she saw Kim Boong-Do. Soo-Kyung tries to suppress a scream, but a does whimper escape. Hee-Jin doesn’t catch on to this, though, and wants Soo-Kyung to stop looking at her like that- she knows that it was just a figment of her imagination.

Soo-Kyung is outside, doing what she is does best- talking to herself. Soo-Kyung doesn’t know who this Boong-Do is or what he even looks like. Boong-Do suddenly approaches her and asks how she is doing, that it’s been a long time. Soo-Kyung stares at Boong-Do and tries to confirm that this man in front of her is Kim Boong-Do. “Are you really Kim Boong-Do? Who the heck are you? You must not really be THE Kim Boong-Do? Why do you keep saying that you are Kim Boong-Do? Why do you keep asking for Hee-Jin?”

Boong-Do, who remains as calm as ever, asks Soo-Kyung if she can’t remember him. Of course, Soo-Kyung replies, it’s the first time she has seen him. “Who are you? Really?”

Boong-Do just smiles and tells her that he is disappointed- he thought they had gotten quite close. Soo-Kyung: “Us?”

Boong-Do and Soo-Kyung are sitting in front of her café and with wild gestures, Soo-Kyung explains what has happened over the past couple of months. Boong-Do listens to all this and asks, “So the car…?” Soo-Kyung replies that Hee-Jin bought the car with her own money. Soo-Kyung never went to buy the car with Boong-Do, since she has never seen him before. She has also never taught him how to drive. Why is he saying the same thing as Hee-Jin? Soo-Kyung is totally lost. Here is this man from Hee-Jin’s dreams. If he was real then, and appeared in the Annals like Hee-Jin said, why is here alive?

Soo-Kyung: Don’t you think I would regard this is a ridiculous?

Boong-Do: Yes, I do.

Soo-Kyung: Then why do you keep doing this?

Boong-Do smiles in reply. Soo-Kyung wants him to tell the truth- he is just Hee-Jin’s fan. When he smiles again, Soo-Kyung takes that as an admission. Soo-Kyung gets a call and leaves for a moment. Boong-Do sits alone and thinks, “It wasn’t memories that disappeared, but time.”

Boong-Do thinks back at the words on the amulet that was cut. He focuses on the word “gap” from the phrase “gap in time.” “Through the gap in time, everything disappeared,” he thinks. “Time that is restarting from the beginning.” Boong-Do sighs in understanding.

Soo-Kyung hangs up her call and looks at Boong-Do from afar. “I don’t think he is a bad person. How did he become like that?” Soo-Kyung enters the café again and tells Boong-Do that she needs to get back. “It there anything that you didn’t understand?” Boong-Do replies that he understood everything. (What else would we expect from our hero?)

Soo-Kyung can’t leave immediately, though, and tries to comfort Boong-Do. “Choi Hee-Jin is really not that great. It’s all lights and makeup.” She doesn’t know why someone who looks as normal as he does is creating delusions around an actress. If he really wanted to, he could have the girls all around him. (Words of truth, Soo-Kyung. You should see the line of fangirls yourself.) Boong-Do almost spits out his tea. He tells Soo-Kyung that he is comforted by this.

Soo-Kyung wants to ask Boong-Do something. “You said you were a graduate student. What school?” He replies, “Sung Kyun Kwan,” and when she asks, “That’s the truth, right?” he flashes back to when Soo-Kyung had asked him this before. He had replied back then, “You told me to only tell the truth.” So once again, he replies, “You told me to only tell the truth.” Soo-Kyung asks where he lives and when he replies, “Bukchon,” she has the same reaction she had last time. Soo-Kyung continues to ask the same line of questions- what kind of household, does he live with his parents, etc. Boong-Do answers before she even finishes. (Haha. Soo-Kyung is so predictable. What a consistently consistent character.) Boong-Do cannot help but laugh. He notes that she is very consistent. She always asks the same things and in the same order too. It’s not easy to be that reliable and predictable.

Boong-Do in return asks his question. Does Hee-Jin believe that the dream is a dream? Soo-Kyung tells him of course. A dream is a dream and she is dating her boyfriend very well right now. Boong-Do is surprised by this. “She has a boyfriend?” Soo-Kyung is surprised that he doesn’t know that- isn’t he her fan? Everyone knows. Boong-Do replies that it is because he wasn’t around for a while. “Who is it?” he questions.

Soo-Kyung whispers, “Han Dong-Min.” He is the man next to Hee-Jin on the red carpet. “Doesn’t you even go on the internet?” Boong-Do looks disappointed (And I am slowly turning into a puddle of goo.)

Hee-Jin is in a daze backstage and remembers what Soo-Kyung told her about the phone calls earlier in the day. Hee-Jin gets up to look for her phone.

Soo-Kyung is leaving now and reminds Boong-Do to keep his promise. Boong-Do confirms, “I won’t call.” He won’t have the life of the person he likes get all complicated. Soo-Kyung is surprised and please at this response. “Then where are you going now?” she asks. Boong-Do tells her that he will go home (NO!!!!!!!!!!).

Hee-Jin is looking for Soo-Kyung and finds her. “Give me my phone.” Soo-Kyung tries to keep the phone from Hee-Jin but Hee-Jin wrestles it out of Soo-Kyung. “That phone call wasn’t an offer for nude modeling, right? Wasn’t it from Kim Boong-Do?” Soo-Kyung averts her eyes, which Hee-Jin confirms as a yes. She starts yelling, “See, I told you I saw him. I definitely saw him!” Soo-Kyung yells in return, “I didn’t tell you because I knew you would be like this. I did just meet someone who claimed that he was Kim Boong-Do.”

Hee-Jin wants to know where he is. Soo-Kyung tells her that he left and that he admitted he just made up everything.

Hee-Jin runs out of the ceremony hall. She takes off her shoes to run in earnest. Soo-Kyung chases after her but cannot follow. Hee-Jin runs all the way barefoot, across the city, to the café that Boong-Do and Soo-Kyung were. (I LOVE THIS GIRL.) She only sees the drinks left on the table and decides to take the cab to the park where they had promised to meet before.

Hee-Jin wants the taxi driver to go faster but he recognizes her as an actress and keeps asking her questions. Hee-Jin loses it and yells, “I told you go faster! Are you going to take responsibility if things go wrong?” Hee-Jin has an adult version of a temper tantrum. (Lesson 1:  Do not mess with a girl in love, chasing her time-traveling man.)

They finally arrive at the park and Hee-Jin jumps out. The taxi driver wants his fare but Hee-Jin just tells him to wait- she will be right back and give him the money. Hee-Jin arrives at the phone booth but she does not see anyone there. She slowly approaches the phone booth and collapses on the ground when it sinks it that no one is there waiting for her.

(OMG! Commercials and then we cut to Han-Dong? WHY?!!!!???!?)

Han-Dong opens the door and he see a monk. He is from the Buddhist temple and came to check on Boong-Do. Han-Dong tells him that Boong-Do is asleep in his room but Yoon-Wol runs out and asks what happened to Boong-Do. The monk explains that Boong-Do came to the temple and something happened. Han-Dong is surprised and runs to Boong-Do’s room. Han-Dong calls out for Boong-Do and enters his room. Boong-Do is sitting as his desk, writing. (What the? HE ACTUALLY LEFT?!)

Han-Dong tells him that a monk is here from the temple asking after him. Boong-Do is writing a letter now to tell the monks that he is okay but they have come already to see him. Han-Dong wants to know what happened but Boong-Do tells him that nothing bad has happened. He wants Han-Dong to go to the police right now/

Yoon-Wol is waiting outside the door when Boong-Do and Han-Dong come out. Boong-Do is instructing Han-Dong to report to the government officials that a man name Ja-Soo is the leader and that they must catch him before he leaves the city. Boong-Do advises them to draw a picture of Ja-Soo to help catch him.

Yoon-Wol asks Boong-Do when he returned and if he found what he was looking for. Boong-Do replies yes. It is a secret, though, and even the monk (Young-Myung) shouldn’t know about it. “It has now become a situation in which knowing its existence is poison.” Yoon-Wol can’t help but looked disappointed. “Did you meet that woman?” Boong-Do replies with a question of his own. “What do you think happened?”

Dong-Min approaches Soo-Kyung who is on the phone. “Hee-Jin is gone?” Soo-Kyung tells him that she will come. Dong-Min wants to know where she went but Soo-Kyung pretends not to know. Dong-Min is annoyed that Hee-Jin is reverting back to her old habits. Soo-Kyung finally gets a call from Hee-Jin but pretends it is not her to Dong-Min. She takes the call in the bathroom.

It is Hee-Jin from her cab. Soo-Kyung yells but Hee-Jin reassures her that she will not be late. Soo-Kyung wants to know if Hee-Jin met Boong-Do and Hee-Jin replies that she didn’t. She is returning now but has no money for the cab. She wants Soo-Kyung to come out and meet her.

(Just as I was about to praise this girl for being so level-headed despite disappointment…) Hee-Jin breaks into a smile as she leans on the car window. (DON’T PLAY WITH ME LIKE THAT EVER AGAIN, DRAMA!)

We get a flashback to Hee-Jin crouched in front of the phone booth looking at her phone. Hee-Jin turns back her head to look at the phone booth.

Boong-Do is uncovering his Joseon clothes hidden in the bushes on a hill where you can look down to see the phone booth. Before he changes clothes, Boong-Do looks back at the phone booth one more time and he sees Hee-Jin inside.

Hee-Jin is dialing (I think the phone number that Boong-Do called from) when she hears a knock. It is Boong-Do. Hee-Jin drops the phone and opens the door. They stare at each other for a long time.

Boong-Do: Why are you here?

Hee-Jin: ……

Boong-Do: Did you come chase after me?

Hee-Jin just silently embraces Boong-Do. His arms go up around her. She grabs him even more tightly. Boong-Do gently smiles. (If I wasn’t typing, I would be crying right now.)

Hee-Jin is in the car remembering all this with a smile on her face.

We are back with Yoon-Wol and Boong-Do who had just asked him if he had met the woman. Boong-Do smiles. “I’m glad I didn’t commit a capital punishment. Just know that.”

Ja-Soo has come again to see Minister Min. Ja-Soo reports that his identity has been revealed to Boong-Do. He came to see Min before he left the city. Ja-Soo reports that everything Minister Min said was true and it was all possible because of the amulet.

Han-Dong has arrived at the police with Boong-Do’s letter. Ja-Soo is leaving when he sees them. He is later sitting with the other followers, drinking, and he tells them that he now knows the reason why learned men read. They will leave now. They have a lot to do.

Dong-Min is at the club after the award show. He is looking for Hee-Jin. He sees other actresses and asks if they saw Hee-Jin. They haven’t.

Hee-Jin is trying to slip out of the club unnoticed but she sees Dong-Min’s manager outside. Hee-Jin crawls between cars, in heels, with a drink in her hand.

In another flashback we see Boong-Do putting Hee-Jin in a cab. Hee-Jin promises to meet later. She has to go now; otherwise she is going to be late. She is so sorry. Boong-Do tells her that he also needs to return home so she has no need to be sorry. The cab driver is cranky. “Aren’t we leaving?” Hee-Jin wants Boong-Do to come to her house at midnight. She starts rambling the address and yells at the poor driver again, “Don’t you have a pen?” But Boong-Do has memorized the address already. Memorization is his talent. He will find her.

Hee-Jin finally makes it into a cab, leaving her drink on the sidewalk. She walks inside her house, unzipping her dress. When one shoulder is already off, she see Boong-Do sitting on the sofa and screams. (Cackling with laughter here.)

Boong-Do holds up his hand to cover his peripheral vision. “I’m telling you that I definitely did not mean to surprise you.” Hee-Jin pulls up her dress again and asks why he is inside and not outside the house. Boong-Do thought she wanted him to come inside her house, so that people can’t see. He doesn’t want her to misunderstand. He is definitely not trespassing on purpose. Hee-Jin yells that she is misunderstanding- that it does seem like he trespassed on purpose. Boong-Do is still covering his face as he tells Hee-Jin that he did not know she took off her clothes as soon as she got home. Hee-Jin tells him that it’s normal here. He isn’t sure of that. He thinks she tries too often to con him just because he doesn’t know about this world. Hee-Jin smiles as his adorableness.

Boong-Do wants to know why Hee-Jin is standing there like that with her arms around her back. Hee-Jin tells him that modern clothes are different from traditional clothing. Boong-Do starts saying, “If it was traditional clothing…” Hee-Jin retorts, “So you have confidence if it was traditional woman’s clothing?” Boong-Do gets up and tells her to change comfortably because he is going to wait outside. Hee-Jin is indignant. “You’re leaving now after seeing everything you can see?” Boong-Do replies, “I am leaving now since I HAVE seen everything I can see.” (Cheeky!)

Hee-Jin keeps talking to his back. “You keep saying you aren’t a player but you are the biggest player I have known.” Boong-Do smiles and tries to leave when Hee-Jin stops him and asks for the amulet. She wants to keep it until he leaves. She doesn’t want him to keep disappearing on her. Boong-Do asks, “Then I can’t even leave when I want to now?” Hee-Jin replies that she is the one who always gets the short end of the stick. She doesn’t know when he comes and just has to wait all the time. He hands her the amulet and Hee-Jin grabs it saying, “Now this is fair,” and she sticks out her tongue at him.

Hee-Jin puts the amulet in a drawer and Boong-Do waits outside. He looks around the city. He suddenly hears a voice saying, “I’m at Hee-Jin’s. Come pick me up here.” Boong-Do quickly hides himself inside the house but Hee-Jin is still pulling up her skirt. She yells that he really is a player. He quickly says that if she insists he is a player, he really is one but that person has come. Hee-Jin asks, “Who?” Boong-Do’s eye twitches a little (I love this little detail by Ji Hyun Woo) before he says, “Your boyfriend.” Hee-Jin is surprised- Dong-Min should be at the club. Boong-Do just continues to give her the evil glare.

Dong-Min rings the bell and Boong-Do wants his amulet. Hee-Jin frowns. She doesn’t want him to leave. Dong-Min can’t come in anyway if she doesn’t answer. Boong-Do hears the beeping sounds at the door and exclaims, “I think he is opening the door.” Hee-Jin and Boong-Do scramble. Hee-Jin throws herself on the sofa, pretending to be asleep and the man with the long legs has already made it up the stairs and onto the bed.

Dong-Min sees Hee-Jin sleeping and wakes her up. The actress pretends to have just fallen asleep. Dong-Min tells her that he came because he couldn’t get a hold of her. Hee-Jin tries her best to endure Dong-Min’s aegyo. (Pulling someone’s ears like that is not aegyo, Dong-Min). Dong-Min found out the door password from Soo-Kyung. Dong-Min turns on the music and Hee-Jin exchanges glances with Boong-Do.

Dong-Min is angry Hee-Jin didn’t tell him that he was leaving. He grabs her into a headlock and Boong-Do, who is watching all this, frowns. Hee-Jin tries to drag Dong-Min out with her head. Maybe they can talk at a café? But Dong-Min doesn’t want to leave. Hee-Jin has something to tell him too but Dong-Min thinks she can just tell him here. Hee-Jin tells him that it is serious but Dong-Min doesn’t want to hear it. He holds Hee-Jin by her waist, “Gone With the Wind” style, and Boong-Do changes into predator position.

Dong-Min moves in for a kiss when water splashes on him. “What the? Is water leaking?” (Boong-Do, you are so adorable with your water sprayer). Hee-Jin tells Dong-Min that water leaks sometime in the house.

Hee-Jin tries to leave the waist hold but Dong-Min grabs on even tighter. Boong-Do takes even a sharper aim from upstairs and sprays Dong-Min (like a misbehaving cat. Hahahahaha! Is our perfect gentleman turning into a petty boy? Hahahaha!)

Dong-Min’s face is soaking wet as he looks up at the ceiling. Hee-Jin blames water leakage. She tries to point in the opposite direction but Dong-Min corrects her- “It came from there,” as he points toward the upstairs bedroom. Hee-Jin quickly distracts him with his wet clothes and drags him to the bathroom. Dong-Min wants her to move- what kind of house is this?

Hee-Jin is now outside  and looks up at Boong-Do. He is crouching on the floor of the upstairs room with the water sprayer in hand. Hee-Jin says, “Surprisingly, you’re pretty petty.” Boong-Do responds that he just wanted to know what this thing did. “What do you use this for?” (Lesson 2: Jealously helps you to instinctively turn unfamiliar things into weapons). He adds, “What are you going to do with him?”

Hee-Jin responds that they can’t blame Dong-Min. He knows nothing. Boong-Do agrees, “Then I picked the wrong target for punishment. It is you who gave her heart to two men.” He points the water bottle at Hee-Jin.

Hee-Jin is indignant. “You mean to say that I cheated? I did nothing wrong. Everything is like this because of you. You’re the one who going off to get married to Young Eui Jung’s daughter.”

Boong-Do finally drops the water spray bottle. “How did you know about that?” Hee-Jin tells him that there is nothing that wasn’t written in the Annals. She is keeping her eye on him through them. “You must feel good. The road to success you have been waiting for is finally open.” She mumbles, “A heavenly beauty, they say.”

Boong-Do teases her. “I was eying that option.” Hee-Jin responds that she is the one who should be punishing him. She goes grabs a board eraser. But before she can throw it, Boong-Do speaks up. “Will it be okay if I take responsibility?” Hee-Jin cannot throw the eraser at that. She asks, “How?” Boong-Do replies, “I will think about how I will take responsibility and return. Do you know what I risked to see In Hyun Wang Hoo’s face? There isn’t anything I can’t do.”

Hee-Jin can’t respond for a moment but finally musters, “You practiced this, didn’t you? You speak so well, it’s annoying. I wanted to see you too in elegant form but all I did was take off my clothes.” They smile at each other.

Boong-Do asks for his amulet again. Hee-Jin takes it out and jumps up to give it to Boong-Do. They wordlessly smile before Hee-Jin says, “I’ll be the one to take responsibility. Just make sure to keep your promises.” (Lesson 3: Take charge like Hee-Jin. Girl can take care of herself and and her man.) They wave goodbye as Hee-Jin asks, “You’ll come tomorrow, right?”

Dong-Min calls out for Hee-Jin from the bathroom. He comes out telling her she needs to move. Hee-Jin tells him that she will take care of it but Dong-Min is already on the phone calling his manager (Chun-Soo) to find a new house for Hee-Jin. Hee-Jin cannot wait to say what’s on her mind and announces, “Let’s break up.” Dong-Min hangs up the phone in surprise and stares at Hee-Jin. Dong-Min cannot believe what he is hearing. Hee-Jin explains that the person she had dated before has shown up again. Dong-Min is angry. It’s not enough that she has a man from her dreams, but another man? Dong-Min thinks her excuses her dumb.

Hee-Jin informs him that the man she is talking about is the man from her dreams. “I didn’t think it was a dream and it really wasn’t. How do I explain this? I think I lost some memories here and there. So just understand it as amnesia.” Hee-Jin explains that she met that man before she started dating Dong-Min again. She wasn’t two-timing. She is sorry but she doesn’t want to keep on lying to Dong-Min.

Dong-Min finally explodes and throws the towel at Hee-Jin’s face (Die, Dong-Min. Die.) “I’ve tried to understand as much as I can because everyone said it was because of your accident. Don’t you know what my temper is like? Don’t you know how much I have been suppressing my temper these days? So who the hell are you saying you are meeting now? The man who appeared in your dreams? Kim Boong-Do is now actually here? Is that what you are saying? Where? Where did he suddenly just jump out from?”

Hee-Jin tries to explain, “He went somewhere for a while and I couldn’t get a hold of him.” Dong-Min doesn’t believe this. “Bring him in front of me. You just spewing ridiculous nonsense.” Hee-Jin asks what he will do if the man really does come. Dong-Min replies that he will kill him.

Hee-Jin informs Dong-Min that she never lied, that she kept on telling Dong-Min that she couldn’t forget that person. Dong-Min continues to scream that she is spewing nonsense.

In contrast to Dong-Min, who has been screaming on top of his lungs this whole time, Hee-Jin continues to calmly respond. “I let you go quietly in the past. When you cheated on me, I let you go quietly. You told me that was the cool thing to do. You told me to be cool about it. You said you met someone you really loved- that is right to be true to your feelings, that it is better than lying. You’re the one who said all that. That’s why I am telling you the truth right now. How can you turn around on all that just because we are in the opposite position now?”

Dong-Min interrupts her, “That’s in the past! (And I am going to slap him. ARGH!) He yells, “So you’re taking revenge on me. You….” as he approaches Hee-Jin. A pillow flies at his face and knocks him down, however, before he can get closer to Hee-Jin.

Boong-Do is leaning over the railing upstairs. Hee-Jin looks up in surprise. “You didn’t leave?” Boong-Do responds, “I was uneasy when you said you would take responsibility. I heard everything you said and you picked the worst things to say. Don’t you know a man?”

Dong-Min asks, “Who the hell are you?” from the floor but Hee-Jin and Boong-Do only have eyes for each other. Dong-Min gets up and asks Hee-Jin, “Is that b*stard Kim Boong-Do?” Boong-Do replies in her stead, “I am Kim Boong-Do and I am the one who sprayed the water.” Boong-Do sticks out his tongue. Dong-Min rushes upstairs. “You’re dead!” He tries to punch Boong-Do but Boong-Do ducks and run down stairs. He grabs Hee-Jin’s shoulders and says, “I say this every time but you’re straightforwardness/impulsiveness is a problem. How can you always let your feelings go first?”

Dong-Min yells from upstairs for Boong-Do to keep away from Hee-Jin and tries to do a flying kick as he runs down.  He misses once again and lands on the floor. Boong-Do safely moves Hee-Jin out of the way.

Dong-Min grabs a golf club near by and yells, “Who are you? How are you Kim Boong-Do?” Dong-Min attacks but Boong-Do expertly knocks him down (Lesson 4: Learn martial arts. You never know when you have to fight off a possessive b*stard of an old boyfriend.)

Boong-Do now has the golf club. He holds it up toward Dong-Min like it is a sword and says, “I think we are fated to fight every time we meet. I can take an attack twice, but not three times. I’m warning you, you should try to run. Like over there.”

Dong-Min tries to throw things at Boong-Do but Boong-Do, with one arm behind his back, is able to dodge and attack Dong-Min. (Thank god it is not the metal end of the club). Dong-Min tries to run into the bathroom but before he can close the door, Boong-Do has the club in the gap of the doorway. Boong-Do knocks open the door and Dong-Min begs for them to just talk things out. Boong-Do prepares to hit Dong-Min with the metal end of the club but stops just short of actually doing it. Dong-Min rushes into the shower stall that is shaped like the one in the hospital. Boong-Min likes what he see and closes the bathroom door. “That’s a good judgement call. That is the safest place for you.” Boong-Do inserts the club through the handles and ties the doors shut. Dong-Min is inside asking who he is. “I told you I am Kim Boong Do.” Dong-Min yells that Hee-Jin is his girlfriend, that Boong-Do is getting between them. Boong-Do doesn’t deny that he is the one getting between them and instructs Dong-Min to wait as he leaves the bathroom.

Boong-Do asks Hee-Jin, “What do you call it here when you take a woman who already has a man?”

Boong-Do returns. “I’m sorry. (We’ll start this conversation) again. If we lay it all out, it isn’t wrong to say that I am getting between the two of you but I was first. And just because there is a goalkeeper, it doesn’t mean that you can’t make a goal.” (You taught him well, Hee-Jin!). It would have been great if we had just talked this out but since it is already like this, just rest here and calm down a bit.” Boong-Do bows and leaves (Always so polite!).

Boong-Do goes out to Hee-Jin and says, “I told him what I memorized but what does ‘goalkeeper’ mean?” Hee-Jin just says, “Let’s leave. We can’t stay here with Dong-Min. Soo-Kyung will come and let him out.”

Boong-Do takes out his amulet and informs her, “I don’t need to run away.” Hee-Jin takes the amulet from him. “I said let’s leave.” Boong-Do stops her and asks, “What is your plan? You are taking my amulet from me and saying let’s go out.” Hee-Jin looks blank for a moment. “I told you I’m not smart. Stop asking me questions. I think my head is going to explode.”

Soo-Kyung is with Chun-Soo in the van and Chun-Soo is asking about the water leak. Soo-Kyung (I think she is flirting with Chun-Soo) replies that she doesn’t know about that. She gets a call from Dong-Min who informs her that Kim Boong-Do has trapped him in the shower stall. Dong-Min laughs like he has lost his mind. Soo-Kyung asks if the man was tall. Dong-Min realizes that Soo-Kyung knew about this man. “Did you know Hee-Jin was cheating? Were you the person who made up the whole dream story?” Soo-Kyung denies everything and asks where Hee-Jin went with Boong-Do. Dong-Min yells, “How the hell am I supposed to know? I’m trapped here in the bathroom!”

Soo-Kyung hangs up and yells. She asks Chun-Soo if she looks crazy. He replies yes. She continues to scream.

Hee-Jin and Boong-Do are at a guesthouse and Hee-Jin is checking Boong-Do in. “Only the man is using the room,” she informs the owner, because she is going to leave soon.

Hee-Jin hands Boong-Do the keys and teaches him about the refrigerator, phone, hot water, and water boiler. Boong-Do listens to her silently before he interrupts her. “Do you mean for me to sleep here alone?” (Be still, my heart!). Hee-Jin replies that she needs to return to clean up the situation at home. She will come tomorrow morning since she doesn’t have to film.

Boong-Do replies, “ I don’t think I will be able to sleep. How could just leave me to this long, long night myself? You’re leaving me in this strange place. You even took my amulet.” (Is Boong-Do pouting?!?! He learned it from Hee-Jin!) Surely, you aren’t really leaving?” (Hee-Jin is so right. Boong-Do is the biggest player in the world. No, the universe. Just a natural-born player. A player through and through! Gah! Who can resist this man?)

Hee-Jin just picks up the remote control and blabbers on that there is a lot to see on television. Boong-Do grabs the remote control out of her hand and pulls her in for a kiss.

He is not done kissing her when Hee-Jin suddenly pulls away. “What are you doing? I have regained my sanity. We shouldn’t be doing this right now with no plan. We have a lot of problems to solve. You told me that my impulsiveness is a problem.”

Boong-Do, still holding Hee-Jin’s face in his hands, says, “Have I not told you this? How much that temper of yours is a charm.” Hee-Jin once again states, “Player.” Boong-Do replies, “I didn’t know this before but I am a player. I concede.” He pulls her in for another kiss, even more tightly this time, as Hee-Jin stands on her tippy-toes and later his feet.

(Excuse me while I scrape myself off the floor).


There isn’t much plot development in this episode but it still remains interesting due to the incredible chemistry between the two leads. I don’t know what to expect next episode and I find that to be a pleasant surprise. I continue to be amazed by the strength of the story and the ability of the writer to keep viewers on their toes. (Speaking of toes…) None of these newly unfolding developments felt jarring in the drama so far- they are organic and remain true to the story. I have watched enough dramas to know when the writer is having trouble keeping her direction, swayed by time and viewer demand. You can tell that with this drama, the writer planned her story to fit the allotted time frame. She is not just chugging along the steamrolling drama train. I can actually imagine the writer carefully and lovingly writing each line of dialogue.

And kudos to the director. Just like the writer, the director is shooting this drama with much love, as evidenced from the glorious cinematography.

I think everyone working on this drama is working on it with love- the attention to detail, the lighting, the clothing selection, the music- they say it all. Thanks to this, my recaps turn out to be incredibly long. Sigh….

This has so far been an incredible ride of a drama and adoration. There is just so much blissful and unadulterated happiness among the fans. Long live the Queen! And Boong-Do.

On a side note: In my giddiness to get these recaps out as fast as possible, I have made some embarrassing grammatical and spelling errors, despite my efforts to proofread. I have also skimped on some details that I thought weren’t necessarily important to the story. Please excuse these shortcomings. I am normally a very slow writer who agonizes over a single sentence, so recapping is out of my comfort zone. Bear with me as I stumble through this process.

Here is a another fanvid. Dedicated to you guys. It’s so much fun obsessing with everyone! (Please note that the subtitles do not actually match the Korean dialogue. It is my own interpretation for this m/v.) Hope you enjoy!

    I have to drop this first and come back later when my brain is more coherent: Han Dong Min IS A JERK. THIS IS WHY SHE LEFT YOU YOU ASS. He almost looked abusive there, it was creepy! And here I thought I wouldn’t hate anyone in this show!

    I wanted to watch the raw yesterday but I’m grateful that I waited for the chinese subs. Definitely better with subs!

    Eeeeee!!!! That swaying kiss must be the best kiss ever!

    *Totally dies!!*
    kkkkkkkkkkkyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa~~♥ ♥ ♥ !!!
    *scraps scraps scraps* Get off the floor, Joonni!! i majorly NEED someone to spazz with!
    !#^$%&^(&#@* OMG!! how many kinds of awesome is this drama!! i cant seem to stop smiling! my cheek hurts!! That ending kiss was absolute daebak!! NOW that’s how you kiss and shoot a kissing scene, kdramas!!

    Many thanks for the recap, Joonni. I love your little thoughts and comments sprinkled throught out the recap coz i had exactly the same reaction. Like most, i watched the raws, then read your recap. I screamed too when they inserted the commercial right after HJ reached the phonebooth. it was such a let down when i saw BD in his Joseon garb sitting and writing his letter as calm as you pleased. And then HJ smiled! ggaaaahhhhh!! (oh did i mentioned how i teared when HJ was running barefooted to catch BD? i was screaming “Run girl RUN!!” through my tears.) i bet every single viewer was smiling from ear to ear when BD and HJ were finally standing face to face.

    And Ji Hyun Woo…..i saw you!! That was a looooonnngggg look n an eyeful you got when YIN took off her clothes. XD And wayyyyy too slow when you turned your head the other way. hahahahahaha.

    i was giggling like a schoolgirl when BD gave HJ the stink eye when he referred to DM as her bf. Omo….our rarely ruffled Joseon scholar is experiencing the first flush of jealousy. XD And your pettiness! absolutely adorable! And how can you not love a girl who doesnt back down in the face of an impending fight?! i love HJ’s spunk and her courage to stand firm when her situation with DM started to take a turn for the worst. (aaaahhh…DM… are behaving exactly like a little boy. And little boys are not allowed to play adult games. XD which…..i hope BD and HJ will be engaging in soon. hahahahahah) Most girls will cower when met with physical force (and that towel totally caught HJ off guard.) but i was pumping my fist when i saw the firm set of her jaw. (i cant stop thinking how awesome this girl is!!) And BD’s firm declaration and challenge~~♥

    i really couldnt believe my eyes when i saw BD pouting. Does my eyes deceive me???? omo….joseon scholar is really pouting! i didnt understand before what he was saying but it definitely looked like he was whining. Who knew that our boy had other things in mind. XD you player you! really…i didnt expect him to try to get into HJ’s pants. (that was obviously what he was trying to do with all that “you’re gonna leave?? ….such a long long night….i have to sleep alone *pout pout pout* “) OMO!! HJ, your pants are done for! i’m 100% sure of this. XD

    And that’s how you grab and kiss futuristic boys! Get some pointers from of Joseon scholar here. That’s how you melt a girl’s heart (and all the other girls in the world!) i love that HJ tried to put up some resistance. (girl’s spunky, yo!) but alas…..i did tell you bout your pants, right? This is probably the ultimate kiss in kdrama history. Never will there be a couple who deserves the best kiss award more than these two. heck…i dont think anyone will come close to beating them. Hot hot HOT! * fans self* Tippy toe kiss = DAEBAK~~♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ !! i dont think any kdrama can parody this. You need the optimum height of YIN and JHY to pull this off! XD

    Ok…i’m gonna go replay the raws one last time before i turn in. Aaaahhh… cheek hurts from all that smiling. i must probably look like an idiot. A relly happy idiot. *dum dee dum dee dum*

      I agree. Boong-Do needs to give some pointers to modern men.

      • Niki #

        you know…judging from the preview, BD really got into HJ’s pants! XD
        i wonder what’s the rush…you know…in context of their relationship.(not that i’m complaining! i’ve been rooting for them to just make babies since ep6! hahaha) but isnt sleeping together a big deal during joseon times? its normal in the 21st century but in the olden days, it’s got big implications and is equivalent to marrying your partner. Does BD feel that threatened by DM that he feels the need to stake his claim on HJ?? like bashing DM up wasnt a big enough a hint. hahahahaha

        gaahhhh…..i cant sleep! too much adrenaline and endorphines! i need to work the next morn!! T_T And replaying the kissing scenes does nothing to my QIM insomnia.

    • Niki –
      I love everything you wrote up there!
      As far as sleeping together in Joseon times?
      I’m guessing it happened more than everyone (who makes dramas) wanted to admit.
      The customs may have been proper, but the people were made out of the same cells wanting to reproduce themselves as we are today.
      You are right that the consequences may have been waaaaaaay worse for the females, though, if she gets pregnant. The guy just walked away.

      • Laikan #

        Totally agree….
        The prudishness of korean drama is well-known but in reality people don’t act so shy XDD
        I think it’s the same with the prudishness we can read in ancient text of laws/poetry etc and the reality back there!
        And come on, until the 20th century, the man/women relationship haven’t change so much since antiquity :s and even now we can still see some countries where the relationship still doesn’t change …

        I defense of KBD, I think that the sentence “I will take responsability” can close the mouth for all trow of “depravating comportment”. I also read in one comment of ep 9 or 10 , that the show is PG -15, that bed scene may explain this rating!
        If it’s really a bed scene ( I hope so hihi) ^^

        oh wow!! HD!! awesome!!
        JHW really IS a pssionate guy! Or is he just sweet on YIN? XD its really telling when he started going into the kiss with parted lips. my gawd….he blew up the barometer in 1 nano second! *sssqqquuueeeaaallll*

      • daniela #

        My favorites minutes of this episode. THANKS! I love the way he moves his eyebrows when she stops the kiss, but he doesn’t let her loose and she doesn’t free her self from his hands. It’s so natural this part ❤

        May 24, 2012
      • kyla #

        JHW really knows how to kiss. I like the first kiss coz he really kissed YIN with parted lips although I believe it’s just for a second and the camera tricks just do wonders. However the 2nd kiss, although passionate is not for real. I replayed it about 20times and i just realized he’s kissing YIN’s chin and not her lips. But still, he still made it so realistic and I’m OK with that.

    Jooni, THANK YOU! Don’t worry, your writing was fine – errors were minor and truly insignificant.

    This episode was DAEBAK. I’m still running on its endorphins. QIHM has compelled me to go to extraordinary lengths : to watch ep 11 RAW, I caved and downloaded Solive. The efforts were well worth it though. OMG, can our lovely OTP get any cuter?! >______< Their chemistry together creates explosions onscreen. I alternated between bawling my eyes out and squealing like a pig… then watching the last scene from between my fingers. kekeke~ FAVORITE KISS EVER!

    May 23, 2012
  10. “Boong-Do thought he wanted her to come inside her house, so that people can’t see”…you meant ” BoongDo thought she wanted him to come inside her house…” instead right? Btw, I’m amazed you managed to be be this coherent recapping this ep. I understood nothing watching the raw and I was just oozing on the floor the entire time

  15. Iviih :) #

    I don’t think they’ll sleep together. Doesn’t fit BD’s character.

    Also, HJ is sleeping in the bed, but BD looks like he just arrived, and is watching her sleep and he is full clothed.

    If they did sleep, wouldn’t BD be by HJ’s side showing his nice chest while looking to her? *wink wink*


    May 23, 2012
    • all those rough sweet passionate kiss doens fit w BD characters from the very beginning. that’s wht i think. he’s a noble man came from a josoun era. for doing such a passionate kiss, is not fit w his “profile”. so, with this i hope there will be a bed scene. LOL.

      May 23, 2012
  16. Iviih :) #

    So I was checking out the korean news, and I thought it would be full of news about the tip toe kiss, but no, there is a lot of news about In Na’s boobs, the scene she was taking off her clothes.

    These reporters, so perverted! LOL~

    omg! it’s so official now that he totally loves her. Now it’s up to them how to preserve the heartwarming relationship and get out from their conflicts.

    Now that we got our super sweet episode and all of us are floating on cloud nine I shudder at the awful things that will surely come (as sure as the sun comes up in the east) in the next few episodes. Sigh…reckon I should just stop watchin after this ep?

  23. Iviih :) #

    Hey everyone, looking to the pictures …


    They will have a sweet date tomorrow, right? But when we have too much cute scenes with out OTP, something bad will happen again at the half or very end of the episode to make us all anxious to watch next episode. And since I saw *spoiler!!!!!!* some BD’s injuried pictures, I guess BD will go back to his era and will get very hurt, and will go to the future, where HJ will find him and will go to the hospital, and BAM the episode ends. Or it ends when BD gets injuried and goes to the past and HJ finds him.

    And since that red carpet scenes didn’t happen between BD and HJ, I’m thinking that time will get messed up again and this time it won’t be DM and HJ but BD and HJ walking in the red carpet.

    May 23, 2012

      Boong Do injured? Looking forward to that. Maybe it’ll be an episode where Ja Soo executes their plan to steal the amulet from Boong Do then kill him.

      The whole time-travelling thing is messing up with my mind…and heart. If time would get messed up again, and Boong Do and Hee Jin will be the ones who’ll be walking in the red carpet, I swear to the drama gods I’ll…

        saw some pictures of BD lying down on a surgery room in the modern times using his sageuk clothes! Uh ho! And some fans said they saw Hyun Woo and In Na filming a scene he is injuried and gets in the ambulance and HJ goes together with him.

    You’re the best! Thank you for the lovely recap! ❤ A big BIG virtual hug for you! *HUGS* And chocolates.

    “It has now become a situation in which knowing its existence is poison.” Ohohoho. Kim Boog Do. I get what you mean. And lol! “I’m glad I didn’t commit a capital punishment. Just know that.”
    He really thought that woman he kissed was the Queen! And…And… AND! He was already conned by Hee Jin at the library! haha! *I'm not making sense anymore. Seriously.*

    The kiss scene was so passionate and I'm laughing at their conversation. Oh Boong Do, and his lines, and my green mind. Stop. Boong Do really did missed her or something along the lines.

    And with your recap I've learned:
    Lesson 1: Do not want to mess with a girl in love, chasing her time-traveling man.
    Lesson 2: Jealously helps you to instinctively turn unfamiliar things into weapons
    Lesson 3: Take charge like Hee-Jin. Girl can take care of herself and and her man.
    Lesson 4: Learn martial arts. You never know when you have to fight off a possessive b*stard of an old boyfriend.

    (Stalk a person by reading the annals. I once did that and wished that I could actually meet them. But not in a romantic way… Uhm. Wait. I think, I did?)

    P.S: Dong Min should die. Let's tie Dong Min up and feed him to the wolves.

    BEST KISS E V E R!!!!! lol!

    ok now that’s out of the way, just wanted to THANK YOU for the lightning fast recap as it really helped me understand what’s going on and esp for putting in as much of the dialogue and not just summarizing. The dialogue esp between BD and HJ is one of the best things abt this drama.

    I do think that a big thing happened plot-wise in this episode – now they all know BD is real and not just figment of HJ’s dreams, also that they’re now back together again not just in terms of time period but as a couple, and BD has now realized how important HJ is to him.

    There’s several things I adore abt QIHM:
    – both leads are strong, well-written characters that are go-getters and not just wallowers or those “woe is me” types, and how they react always fits the character’s personality. They are both so likeable! Not always the case, sometimes half of a pair is barely tolerable…
    – the pacing is good, it never feels bogged down or slow
    – the natural showing of affection between the leads (I hate it when you only see the leads who are supposedly madly in love hug, not even kiss, awkwardly only in the last episode). All those looks, smiles, hugs, kisses really help make the development of their love so believable, that they really care about each other
    – another is that BD and HJ genuinely like each other, not just love, but LIKE each other’s quirks, notice how BD smiles when HJ is being silly and how HJ gently teases BD and proudly says that DM has nothing on BD.
    – and I especially love how their eyes speak when they look at each other. Like they’re having whole conversations just in that look, or maybe spouting sonnets or love letters. It feels as if just one look between them is enough for each to understand the other. All I can do is sigh or squeal, or both. That first scene at the red carpet when HJ sees BD again for the first time! …the look in her eyes!…sigh…
    – so I guess that leads to the actors JHW and YIN, who have played their characters so believably that BD and HJ feel real and we care about them. The 2 leads have done so well that they have us all on the palm of their hands, hopelessly hooked and loving every minute of it!

    last thing, notice at the end while they’re kissing, BD starts to turn as if they’re dancing with HJ still stepping on his feet and still in a liplock?!

    again, BEST KISS EVER!!!! lol!

    May 23, 2012
    • fuufuu~ #

      Ah yes. It looks like they’re dancing with a slow paced music that only them could hear. ~

      It’s wonderful/great how their actions are more than words. The interaction, the smiles, and the look in their eyes. *breathless*

      Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo In Na are definitely hitting it out of the ball park in conveying their character’s feelings toward each other. I have to stop myself from screencapping all their looks at it each other.

      dreamgazer had pointed this out to and I agree now that I have had time to digest. There was definitely plot movement in this episode. I think I meant slow more in terms of the Joseon time-traveling story. I guess I see this more as the overarching plot and thought there would be more movement in that regard.

      May 24, 2012

        you’re right, not much happened in joseon era plot arc but I loved having more screen time with the 2 leads together so I was ok with it. 😉

I am so excited to read your recap on ep 12 and see wat sort of reactions you did like me for each scene, eventhough i dont understand korean, i know when to react after a cliffhanger going to commercial looks like OTOKKE!!~~~

    Hi Jooni – I hope you don’t mind if I put in a *plug* for Ji HyunWoo’s twitter — @Star_Mr_G ….stunningly he only has about 6,000 followers. Most of the Kdrama actors I follow, including minor characters for shows like RTP, have over 20,000.
    For Real.
    It would be awesome to show him some real-time love by increasing his twitter-base….just in case anyone wants to join in. cheers!

    Jonnii thank you! Thank goodness we got you. Please don’t hesitate to abuse the capslock, it helps to keep your sanity while recapping the most 오글-ing show evar ♥♥♥♥♥♥
    I loved the way Hee-jin blushes around Boong-do you could tell that she’s crazy about him and just wanna eat him LOL. Who doesn’t?
    And yeah I loved the “dang-sin namja chinggu” scene too, the way he stared daggers at her with that twitch. Jealous KBD is yummy. And that pout, it’s very light just like his smile.. uhmmm…*wondering a second here* But boy he’s good, a 선수 no doubt about it.
