EPISODE 15 RECAP
In the very early morning, Shin-hyuk shaves off his scruffy beard and put on a sharp suit , revealing himself as Ten. He meet Sung Joon at the place outside the company, he gives Sung-joon an mp3 player, according to him this included everything needed to rescue Most, also all of his personal secret. He says that Sung Joon can make the article based on this for the twentieth anniversary edition of Most.
Sung-joon seems skeptical that Shin-hyuk is really a world-famous author, and asks if he’s the one who stopped the issue going to press. Shin-hyuk just repeats that he can write an article based on the information on the MP3 player, and even offers to pose for some photos.
That is Shin Huyk still utterly serious, Sung-joon wants to know if he’s doing this to save Most from cancellation. There must be a reason for keeping the secret for so long, and breaking his silence now. Shin-hyuk only sighs that nothing stays secret forever, and the timing couldn’t be better.
Chief Editor Kim step in the office loudly as usual but now she walk with her nephew who is Editor Poong Ho. After he announced himself, every one cringes in horror. However his nature is still the same, he make joke on people and they ask them whether he ask his father to save the magazine. He says that he did ask but it was.
Hye-jin calls Sung-joon in order to announce him about Poong –Ho is the new vie president, that is unexpected. Sung Joon agrees with her that there are so many surprises in the world.
He listens to the recording, seeming deeply troubled. We don’t hear Shin-hyuk’s words, but the longer Sung-joon listens, the more upset he becomes. When he’s finished, he calls the press crew and informs them that there will be no additional article for this edition of Most.
The next morning, Ha-ri takes an aptitude test and wails in despair at the results: she’s best suited to be a hotelier. She whines to Hye-jin that she quit that business because she was embarrassed, only to find out it’s what she’s best at. Hye-jin reminds her that she was embarrassed because her father got her the job, not because of the job itself. Ha-ri admits that she actually liked the job.
The Most staff are stunned to see that their own Shin-hyuk is Ten.
Shin-hyuk’s identity as Ten is all anyone can think about, and even Ha-ri calls Hye-jin to tell her the news. Sung-joonhands her the mp3 player and tells her that on it are Shin-hyuk’s last intended words for her.
This time we hear what Shin-hyuk says on the recording as Hye-jin listens. He tells her that he was adopted in America when he was twelve, and that he grew up loved by good parents. We see Shin-hyuk skyping with his American parents, and it’s obvious there’s a lot of love there on both sides.
He goes on to explain that he began writing online in high school, and caught the interest of a publisher. They wanted to publish a book, but they used the fact that he was an adopted Asian kid as a bookselling gimmick. They wanted to control him and change his writing, until soon his writing didn’t feel like his anymore. So he hid his identity, and began writing as Ten.
He laughs at the irony that the only way to write freely was to hide, but he emphasizes that he chose this way of life.
Then the seriousness is over, and Shin-hyuk teases Hye-jin by screaming into the recording, and singing her a silly song. Hye-jin laughs, but her eyes fill with tears.
Joon-woo finds a laptop on Shin-hyuk’s desk and opens it, which starts a video playing on their large screen. Everyone gathers to see Shin-hyuk’s farewells to them, and the noise even draws Sung-joon out of his office. He has a message for each and every person, and he particularly apologizes to Sung-joon for the surprise (and complains that he never gave him any of his “panties,” hee).
Just as everyone notices that he didn’t leave a message for Hye-jin, Shin-hyuk jumps back in front of the camera. They all breathe a sigh of relief, but he came back to ask Chief Editor Kim what she thought of his last gift. He wishes them all a happy life, and goes for real. Awww.
The anniversary edition is a success, and Most earns the number one spot, saving itself from cancellation. Somehow, it’s just not the same without Shin-hyuk, and the team mope around the office, missing him. They ask if Hye-jin is going back to the management team as planned, and she confirms that this is her last day, so they decide to throw her a farewell party.
Song Joon walks Hye-jin home after her farewell party, and he sends her to the park to wait while he gets them something to drink. She slides down the slide and lands at his feet, just as he did once, making him laugh.
Sung-joon tells Hye-jin that he’s been recalled to Headquarters and offered a promotion. But he doesn’t feel right about being rewarded, because the success of the anniversary episode was due to Shin-hyuk, not himself. So he plans to refuse their offer.
He reminds Hye-jin that he was going to propose to her after making Most number one, wishing to be with her at his best moment. But he’s disappointed, because it’s not the moment he wished for. He tells her that he has to go back and wrap things up, and that he plans to start over from scratch.
He may not be able to give her that “best moment” as soon as he’d hoped, and Sung-joon asks Hye-jin a very serious question: Will she come to the States with him? She doesn’t even need to think about it, and promises to go with him. Sung-joon hugs her with a giant smile, but makes sure to tell her that this still isn’t the real proposal.
The next day, Hye-jin packs up her things to head back to the management team. The entire Most staff pout at her leaving, and she even gets a hug from Joon-woo (and Sung-joon pulls him off of her when the hug goes a little long, hee). Even Chief Editor Kim comes out to blow Hye-jin a kiss goodbye.
Back in the management office, she’s sent home at six pm, which is a big change from staying up half the night working at Most. Walking to the bus stop, Hye-jin thinks she sees Shin-hyuk walking into a pojangmacha, but it’s not him. She’s flustered, certain she saw Shin-hyuk. She starts to walk again, but she’s grabbed from behind — it IS him!
She immediately starts lecturing him for leaving so suddenly, and complains that she was the only one he didn’t say goodbye to. He says that’s why he came to say it in person, and pulls her in for a big bear hug. He holds her for a long time, as if he knows it’s the last time. He whispers something in her ear that makes her laugh, then backs away slowly, smiling, watching her for as long as he can.
Ha-ri decides to go back to school to study hotel management. She’s decided that she enjoys that profession, and wants to study it properly and do it on her own. Good for her.
The children’s book author that Hye-jin interviewed for her article calls her, having read her article and thought it was wonderful. She’s disappointed to hear that Hye-jin isn’t on the editing team anymore, but invites her over some time if she wants a break. She starts to say something else, but we don’t hear what it is.
Whatever she said, it has Hye-jin heading to her town to see her now, and she calls Sung-joon on the way. They agree to meet for dinner later.
Hye-jin arrives at the author’s workplace, where her colleagues are working on a collaborative creative project for the next year. The author invites Hye-jin to join them — she feels like Hye-jin should consider revisiting her childhood dream of becoming a children’s author before her current job becomes too much of a habit. Hye-jin is terribly flattered, but she tells the author that she’s moving to the States soon, and probably getting married.
At dinner with Sung-joon that night, she can’t stop talking about how wonderful it felt to discuss writing with those women. Sung-joon smiles and makes all the right supportive noises, and he asks if she wants to do that, too — he remembers her childhood dream of being a writer. When Hye-jin says that she can’t because she’s going with him to the States, he looks troubled.
Ha-ri studies hard at her new classes, making Hye-jin smile at her friend’s newfound passion. She tells Ha-ri how pretty she looks, all excited about her new life goals, but when she sees her own reflection, she doesn’t have that same glow. She looks at her signed copy of the author’s book, in which she’d written for Hye-jin to keep following her dreams.
Sung-joon invites her to his hotel for dinner, and looks at the ring he bought to make his third (and hopefully, finally official) marriage proposal to Hye-jin. But when he opens the door, Hye-jin’s first words are a desperate, “Let’s get married, Sung-joon-ah.” HAHA, his shocked face is the best thing ever. Hye-jin even bought rings, and puts them on them both with shaking hands.
But Sung-joon knows what she’s doing when she asks him to wait a year… she wants to be a part of that creative writing team, but she’s trying to let him know that she still intends to marry him. That’s so cute. Luckily Sung-joon completely understands, because of course he does.
He even says that he was worried she would give up her dream for him, so he’s a bit relieved. He doesn’t want her to come to America with him and have regrets. Hye-jin simply says that when someone is doing something they really want to do, that’s when they look the most beautiful, and she wanted to look beautiful to herself.
Sung-joon is completely supportive, though he joke-whines that he had his proposal all planned out. Hye-jin wants to see it and pouts when Sung-joon is all Let’s do a puzzle!Can’t blame her… show me the ring!
Hye-jin makes faces at Sung-joon the entire time they put the puzzle together, which of course is their favorite painting Dance in the Country. She tries to aegyo him into telling her how he was going to do it, but he keeps waving her off. Why do I feel like the puzzle is the proposal?
Sure enough, when Hye-jin leans over to pick up the final piece off the floor, Sung-joon puts the ring in the empty space. He says that this is how he was going to do it, and that he was going to say that before he met her, he didn’t know it was possible to be so happy. He would have said that he wants to make her as happy as she makes him.
He asks if she’ll marry him in a year, and of course Hye-jin accepts, and slides his matching ring on his finger. They giggle that they have two sets of engagement rings now.
Hye-jin gets ready to go later, but Sung-joon stops her and asks her to stay. She comes up with a million excuses, because apparently she’s out of her mind, and he agrees to take her home. But he forgets his car keys so she jumps in a taxi instead.
He sits up in his room grinning at his rings like a lovesick doofus, and jumps up when the doorbell rings. It’s Hye-jin… she changed her mind and wants to stay. She’s so nervous, it’s adorable, and Sung-joon just yanks her inside and kisses her cross-eyed. There’s a good boy.
Later, Hye-jin gets ready to move to the small town where she’ll be working for the next year. It makes Ha-ri cry, and she says it’s the first time they’ll be separated since the time her family lived in Japan. That sets off Hye-jin, and both girls wail about how much they’ll miss each other. And then they go nuts, drinking and dancing late into the night.
Sung-joon takes Hye-jin to her new place, and she asks him what time his flight to the States is tomorrow. He asks her if they can not have a teary airport goodbye, but just say farewell here. She wants to see him off, but he admits that he’s worried he won’t be able to handle it. So sweet.
He tells her that he’ll try to visit, and promises to call and email constantly. Reluctantly, he lets go of her hand, and walks away. Hye-jin watches him for a minute, then turns to begin her new life.
But Sung-joon runs back to Hye-jin, because he’s got one more thing to say: “I love you. I love you, Hye-jin-ah.” She sends him off with a teary, “Me too. I love you, too.”
Some time later, curly hair flying and cheeks glowing with health, Hye-jin bikes through the small town whooping with joy. A friend calls out to her, asking where she’s going, and she yells that someone has come. Smiling and happy, she nods and greets all her friends as she rushes to see her visitor.
