It’s crazy, I know… I start recapping a show who already started and I completely screw my plans for the next two months. I feel so sad having missed this train just because I wanted “I do, I do” to be good… Well, that’s life. Hopefully for me and for my readers, Kim Eun-sook (who gave us the fantabulous Secret Garden) is someone who likes to write dramas like a succession of “slices of life”. You won’t feel lost.
First, a quick introduction to the characters and their nicknames:
Kim Do-jin: Architect. Womanizer. Selfish. Prankster. Fell in love with Yi-soo at first sight. Has a car named Betty. Nickname: The Jerk.
Seo Yi-soo: Ethic teacher. Shy and immature. Has a gift to put herself in embarrassing situations. Loves secretly Tae-san but doesn’t want to confess. Fan of baseball because of him. Unfortunately, is the love interest of the jerk. Nickname: DoomedGirl.
Im Tae-san: Builds the buildings drawn by The Jerk. Not good at deciphering women’s hearts and has a very sweet personality. Lives a passionate love story with Se-ra. Nickname: NiceGuy.
Hong Se-ra: Friend and love rival of Yi-soo. Or maybe not… Doesn’t get along with Mae Ah-ri who knows one of her dirty little secrets. With a friend like her you don’t need enemies. Nickname: The Foe.
Im Mae Ah-ri: Little sister of NiceGuy. Funny, full of energy. Absolutely shameless and free-spirited. Has a mega crush on her oppa: The lawyer Choi Yoon and does all she can to seduce him. Nickname: Baby Fox.
Choi Yoon: Lawyer who represents Do-jin’s and Tae-san’s respective companies. Also, high-school friend of them. His wife died 4 years ago. Attracted to Tae-san’s little sister but does all he can to resist. Nickname: Timebomb.
Lee Jung-rok: Playboy and troublemaker. Always loses his wedding band when he takes it off to flirt. Couldn’t survive without his 3 buddies. Has at least 3 different jobs which allow him to meet sexy female customers. Married for money to Min-sook who always finds out about his escapades. Nickname: Oska#2
Kim Min-sook: Married, sexy, clever. Her money is the blood which keeps alive the businesses of all the “gentlemen”. Very proud woman and super classy. Not a (b)witch, which is quite surprising. Nickname: The Queen.
Colin: Mysterious teenager raised abroad and back to South Korea to find his no less mysterious father: Supposedly one of the 4 sexy gentlemen. Nickname: Baby Stalker.
Kim Dong-hyub: Student of teacher Yi-soo. Has a crush on her and does all he can to stay in her class. Cutie pie and smarter than he looks. Also, the chief of a little gang. Nickname: Baby Jerk.
Sidenote: Maddino has recapped the previous episodes and I will deal with them later myself. Now, ready for the ride? Then let’s go!
