Summary of ep 15:

So that was what aroused adoptive dad's suspicions: On the way out after getting her belongings from aunt's home, JS dropped her i-tag. Adoptive dad who called in on aunt picked it up to return it to JS. When he looked at the tag, his eyes widened when he saw the name EUN JUNG SOO.

On top of that, DY had a recollective dream about little JS being ill-treated by aunt. In her convo with aunt later on in the kitchen, I think she asked about aunt's relationship with JS and aunt probably spun a story that did not co-relate with that dream. Dig your own grave, aunt! The truth will be out soon!

Today was the first time DY's hubby ever set eyes on the actual identity documents on which the adoption was based, and the information that the girl's "legal" name was supposedly originally Kyeong Hee was complete news to him, as was also the lawyer's account of how the aunt and her husband supposedly changed the girl's name on a fortune-teller's advice. The lawyer admits that he thought there was something fishy about that tale at the time, and asks should he look into it now, but his employer says no... he'll take charge of investigating matters himself from now on.

Ironically / fatefully, what brought him to the house and the passing encounter with JS was KY's lie about her mother being injured, which was her explanation for why she suddenly showed up and said her "uncle" needed to leave with her right away. Gentleman that he is, he has come to enquire about their housekeeper's health (though he had indeed already wondered how on earth KH knew to find her "uncle" at his company, and there may already have been an element of checking up in his visit as well as the patriarchal concern.)

In the confrontation with JS, KH has said that even if DY and her husband found out she was a "fake daughter", they'd never be able to abandon her now, so JS needn't hope to step into her shoes. We know she is far from convinced of that herself, but it seems to give JS some pause for thought.

At the start of the episode JS notices that her album of designs has gone missing from the office (where, to resolve something that was puzzling us earlier, she currently seems to have been camping out). It turns out that JH has spirited it away to show Kim Dae Pung, in order to convince him that JS has enormous talent and that her designs are fully worthy of his efforts. It works, Dae Pung is bowled over, and can't wait to get to work making the prototype required for the contest the following day. When she discovers that this change of heart is all down to JH taking her design album (which Dae Pung now gives back to her) she is hugely grateful to JH, but he is sulking in his car and refusing her calls.

Alas, when she then goes back to see how Dae Pung is getting on with making the bag, she discovers him drunk again, and incapable of cutting the leather properly, She chides him bitterly for letting her down by hitting the bottle again just when he needed to be sober, but he weepingly explains that his alcoholism is now so bad that he can't do any skilled work even when sober. His notoriious pickiness and insistence that all the designs that came his way were beneath his notice was his way of covering up for that fact. He'd been so thrilled by JS designs that he forgot his own incapacity but when he started work found his hands were trembling so badly that the only remedy he could think of was to drink in the hope that would temporarily take the tremors away, but it didn't.

So he suggests that the only way to get the bag made in time is to go to another maker who he believes is up to the task. He writes his particulars on a piece of paper for JS. But she demurs, saying that although the design is hers, she is now an employee of Shinwha and it would be a serious matter if she revealed an in-house design to anyone outside the company, so she wants to keep it within Shinwha and try to persuade another of the in-house technicians to do the job. But Dae Pung pleads with her not to do that, because it would mean revealing the truth about his condition and would mean he'd be fired and made destitute, with no one else ready to employ him. For that reason, he asks her to promise she'll tell no-one about going to the outside bagmaker, not even JH, and she agrees.

So she goes secretly to the bagmaker in her old haunt of Dongdaemun, and though he proves capable of delivering the goods as Dae Pung has said, he also holds on to the design. When it looks as though the Internet vote which is to have the final say is turning out in favor of JS's design, KH arranges for the bagmaker to flood the market with cheap copies of JS's design, and then to tell the police when he is arrested that JS deliberately slipped him that design in order to make money for herself on the side.

At the same time, KH is priming JH with her "admission" that her pre-adoption name is Kyeong Hee, and that she was brought up alongside the her orphaned impoverished and mean-spirited cousin Jeong Soo, who always bitterly resented her talents and accomplishments, and as soon as she returned to Korea set out to bring her down. This takes JH aback, but he doesn't find KH's story credible, though he can't help wondering why he had to hear about the two women's past from KH rather than from JS herself, and that brings home to him how little JS must care about and trust him. But JH isn't KH's true target for that "confession". She goes to tell his grandfather her tale. saying that she'd hoped to spare JS for the sake of the family connection, but now that she knows JS has deliberately wiled her way into Shinwha to ruin the firms business and steal JH from her, she feels she has no alternative but to tell the President the "truth" and to ask him to intervene to "save" JH from the evil wiles of JS.

JS asks the police officer who is investigating the case whether if she reveals, in strict confidence, what really happened, the police and prosecutors will keep something about her explanation ( she means Dae Pung's secret, of course) strictly confidential from Sinwha, but the officer, understandably enough, says he can't give her that undertaking, and so she is unable to defend herself, without breaking her pledge to Dae Pung, either to the police or to JH' grandfather when he summons her, So she succumbs to the President's bullying and agrees to assign all rights in her designs, current and future, to Shinwa unconditionally in return for not being prosecuted.

  1. The story is getting more interesting except that there is still not much happening between JH n JS. I hope tonight will see more of them. It always take 2 days later to watch the show with subtitles. I have to depend on your recap to get myself updated and I am very thankful to you for doing that. I really look forward to read your recap for tonight's episode. Have a lovely day :)
