Baby Recap for Lie to Me Episode 16

I think I’ve turned into a crybaby. I cried through the entire last two episodes of 49 Days (like, who didn’t?), and now I’ve cried through the entire episode of Lie to Me. Except this time it was all tears of happiness. Episode 16 was all about connection – the connection of the viewer to the central love story, and the connection of Ah Jung and Ki Joon to each other. I wish I could write a recap without any plot, because LTM’s plot is really that terrible and constantly obscures what is truly exquisite about this drama. It’s about the connection between me (the viewer) and the sensation of falling in love (with the drama love story).

Love cannot and need not be justified. Love need only be understood to the person in love. It’s not a validation of quality (or lack thereof) that I love LTM. It’s simply because watching Ki Joon and Ah Jung, I was swept away. We have traveled 16 episodes, countless hours, days, weeks, and months, with Ah Jung and Ki Joon, and today we walk to the end of the journey with them. While it is the end for us voyeurs peeking into their world, it’s only the beginning for them, as a relationship predicated on a lie ends on an upcoming marriage based on genuine thought and sincerity.

Episode 16 Baby Recap:

Ah Jung tells Ki Joon that the reality of marrying a rich and prominent man like him is something she doesn’t think she is up to the task. Ki Joon asks if she loves him, and she says that she loves him so much that she can’t fathom living in a world without him. But she’s frightened of a discussion of marriage [right now]. She asks for some time, to find what she lost. Ki Joon completely understands, and gives her the room she needs to find herself again. He tells her that he will wait for her, even though he hates waiting, for her he will do it.

Ah Jung gets transferred to Jeju and Ki Joon sends her off at the airport. He gives her a watch to speed time along, and then pulls her in for a kiss farewell. She snaps a picture of them together before she departs. A month passes and both are busy at work, writing emails that Ah Jung thinks are just like love letters. Aunt asks why Ki Joon isn’t married yet, and tells him that she’s waiting and will make time for it. So Ran finds out she’s pregnant but this time Jae Bum left her after they had another fight. Ki Joon visits Ah Jung in Jeju. They want to spend more time together but both have to head to meetings. Ki Joon sees Jae Bum at the hotel and lets Ah Jung know.

Ah Jung lures So Ran to Jeju and gets the two bickering old-married couple to reconcile. The four of them go on a couple date. When Ki Joon drops Ah Jung off at her apartment he makes every excuse to go inside and then claim that he can’t leave. They hang out and talk and are generally the sweetest couple in the entire planet. No boating though. Ah Jung gets a call from Dad that he and Ae Kyung are finally making it official. Ki Joon makes breakfast for Ah Jung the next morning, asking if she’ll marry him if he makes her breakfast every morning?

Ki Joon gives Ah Jung the necklace again before he leaves, asking that she come to Seoul on her day off and meet his Aunt. If she wears the necklace, that is her answer that she will marry him. Ah Jung is at work at the museum and a display goes missing. She’s frantically looking for it and misses her appointment to meet Ki Joon and Aunt. She finally finds it, and cries that “I found it.” Methinks Jungie found more than a missing vase.

Aunt is pissed Ah Jung stood her up, and Ki Joon is very upset as well. He gets Ah Jung to meet him at the airport in Jeju to hear her explain what happened. Ah Jung doesn’t explain, she just hands the necklace case with a note (but no necklace) inside it. She hands it to Ki Joon and tells him that this is her answer. Ki Joon is upset and doesn’t end up opening the box until much later when Park Hoon accidently opens it and finds the note.

Ah Jung’s note tells Ki Joon that she’s sorry she missed the appointment, but she actually found what she lost that day. Now she can run to Ki Joon. She thanks him for waiting for her, and tells him that she loves him. Ah Jung gets a box from Ki Joon containing all the items that commemorate the memories they have together: tomato juice, coke, a rubber duckie (for the duck boats), money for the hospital bill. She cries and wonders why Ki Joon hasn’t called her after getting her note?

Ki Joon runs to Jeju and finds Ah Jung on the hillside overlooking the sea. She’s wearing the necklace. He asks her if he’s too late, apologizing for not knowing how she felt. She apologizes for making him wait even though she loves him so so much. Ki Joon counters that he loves her more. Major kissing ensues. Ki Joon vows to stay by her side forever, Ah Jung makes him remember that promise.

Ah Jung tells So Ran that she is getting married but So Ran doesn’t believe her. Hahaha, so cute. Ah Jung says this time it’s for real, but So Ran refuses to fall for it again. Ah Jung says it’s for real, they are getting married right away. Ah Jung narrates that from a lie a real love blossomed. Ki Joon narrates that they both changed, and discovered that honesty and sincerity is what love is.

Baby Recap for Lie to Me Episode 16 — 199 Comments

  1. ok.. shouldn’t we petition for a special? it could happen right? it might be possible.. in jdoramas and in some kdramas that i’ve seen specials don’t exactly air as soon as the last episode finishes .. so if HwanHye and the lovely staff are all busy promoting in Japan.. we can all give them time right? RIGHT?

    I just wanna see them in a special.. a wedding.. honeymoon.. babies.. enjoying married life.. fighting then making out…err.. up .. it’s not to much to ask, is it? IS IT PD-nim?

    I’m just so sad :(

    • That’s one way to cure our love-sickness.. haha.. and to sell the director’s cut! !!

      (can I just say though.. the special ep / follow-up werent always as good. dunno about others’ experience. I’m thinking of BOF for a start.)

      But I like your suggested content!!

      • I was thinking more of

        1. enactment of at least one alternative ending scenario (from a winning fan script)
        2. compilation of bts & ngs
        3. q & a for main & second leads (random questions coming from the LTM fandoms)
        4. an arrange date for our OTP, etc etc

      • 2 & 3 – seems to be standard in dir cut.

        But hmm 1 & 4.. sounds novel.

        I kinda want to see them in Guerilla Interview / how about – 1D2N?? haha :)

  2. thanks for the recap… can now go to sleep and for sure il be late for class tomorrow but its worth the wait..kjh and yeh will forever be one of my favorite otp and will hope they find love w each other in real life…

  3. aarrrgghh…. can we not saying goodbye ? i mean we still wait the full recaps from Ms.K… I still not ready to end this… jjaeball… huuuaaaaaaaa

  4. Hi Koala, please continue to post your thoughts, news & photos of LTM and we can go on chatting how crazy we are about YEH/KJH. I love LTM so much may be because the story is really almost focus on AJ/KJ only. And they are so adorable. I know it will be impossible to have LTM2, but how about a special LTM 2 hours ep with more fun showing us their married life and how they deal with their career and babies.

  5. I am so gonna miss ahki TT_TT
    super awesome ending TT_TT
    i got what i wanted (no boating is fine)
    still happily dating… marriage was just a plus
    Will rewatch LTM soon TT_TT

  6. THANK YOU!! I wake up this morning at 6:30am and check your playground every 5 minutes. I just watched the raw last episode and I am breathless ! I never had enjoy a drama as much as LTM from beginning to end with all the changes! YEH/KJH are excellent together and I hope the become couple in real life. Thank you again, it has been a pleasure to read all your recaps and I’ll be coming back to read more recap from you about others drama even so I don’t think I’ll ever going to enjoy it as much as LTM.
    YOU ARE THE BEST!!! :) :)

  7. hahaha the new found shyness of AJ no Eun Hye..gosh can’t help it…watching even raw makes my heart flutter. so real this two..i think i won’t get over the HwanHye couple for a very very long time. :)

Whimper….you are my sunshine my only sunshine you make me happy when stars are gray( rocking back & forth)….my darling OTP I miss you already…. Sniffles….am gonna go & wallow some more.

  10. thanks MAM…I still wait the full recap…Oh gosh..its 2 am here n i can’t head just full of LTM….airport kiss…cheek kiss…bed kiss…car’s window kiss…ending kiss…OMG….God please forgive me……ottoke?????

  11. I don’t care about the ratings and it may not have the best plots but this LTM has got the best OTP by far…KJH and YEH has got the most sizzling chemistry I’ve ever seen in K-drama and that’s what made me go crazy from the beginning ’til the end. I have never been so drawn to a drama like am drawn to this one. I’ve never seen any k-dramas that let the same actors partnered again but I hope that they will make KJH and YEH an exception and have them partnered again in any future k-dramas *crossing my fingers*. Thanks Koala for always being there and giving us the best recaps/spoilers…you’re the GREATEST!

  12. BEST DRAMA COUPLE EVER. I seriously don’t care about the plot, all I care is that I believe that KJW and YEH are really in love! and they made me in love again too…hahahaha..

    Ok, here are my thoughts. A lot of dramas may have really good stories, twists and turns but I always end up wishing for more connection between the leading couple. But with KJW and YEH, their acting is sooooooo unbelievable that it seems they’re in love for REAL. And this is when I don’t care for the plot anymore because all im craving for is more romantic and giddy moments between them. And LTM didn’t dissappoint me. At the end of the day, LTM made LAUGH, CRY, GIDDY and IN LOVE and THAT’s WHAT A ROM-COM DRAMA SHOULD BE.

    Koala, words are not enough to express my thanks for everything you’ve done for all LTM addicts like me. Thank you for providing us a playground to camp in this roller coaster ride with LTM and not a bandwagon (pun intended) abondoning us when things go rough. Love you Koala! :)))

    • Yes they are THE BEST COUPLE! KJH and YEH have such an amazing chemistry…I can’t even tell if it’s real or reel anymore. I have laughed, cried and the major cause for my hair loss now (from excitement when i see them together and frustration from waiting for Mon-Tues to come). May not have the best plot but who cares, right? OTP is what made us go gogogaga over LTM. Once again thank you Koala for never leaving us crazy addicts when others dropped LTM. Muah Muah Muah Much!

    • Totally agree with you. While most of the drama did have the plot but they lack connection and sometimes we couldn’t feel the love of the OTP. This drama gave us the connection we are looking for in all the k drama that we watched. They dated, they hug, kissed and fight for their love. And what I love most about this drama is that they never give in to all those people who wants them to break up. They stood up for love. AJ was overwhelmed I read in a comment earlier that it’s one thing to be KJ’s girlfriend and it’s also one thing to be his wife. That is so true. After all that had happened to them she really needs some space to figure things out because being KJ’s wife is not easy she needs to learn a lot and give up a lot. KJ gave him the space she needs. At first I’m not liking it but after episode 16 I fully understand everything. While we all want the she bangs wedding, boating, babies and etc… they will still have that, after that finale I don’t think AJ and KJ will ever be apart. It was not rush it was all well thought of, I applaud the writer for giving us such a wonderful finale. But like everyone PLEASE make a special! I’d like to see them again together on screen and off screen as well.

  13. Just like in Goong, Yoon Eun Hye gave back the box that had the rings but with no rings and the guy misunderstood, lol <3

  14. ok our OTP may not admit it, but what if KJH is ever so thankful of the chances in closeness/intimacy/kisses with YEH that he was really feeling those moments. It was too obvious not to n she is reciprocating so sweetly. Those were their chances… hope their love blooms, we love our OTP to the max ! don’t know how to come back to reality after LTM.

  15. Thanks Koala, for your dedication to Lie To Me, there are no words to thank you, I wondered: KOALA Your SLEEP? You always saw the clock information about our drama. What a spectacular final chapter, I am very happy, this drama was a beautiful trip, I knew that today would have a smile on my lips and tears in my eyes these scenes so tender. I love Eun Hye Yoon and Kang Ji Hwan is the Best Couple

    DID YOU SEE THAT ENDING KISS? (sorry for the caps Koala, I just need to express)
    But Oh MY Frecking Gosh. He pulled her in so good and so sexy. Oh My gosh. I need to find a new boyfriend seriously. This show has shown me a sign!!!

  17. thank you soooo much ms koala. what I love the most is your genuine passion for our otp. :) thank you for letting us be crazy here.

    I can’t wait to watch this… knew tbere was a baby recap but my dumb phone. texted hubby and he can’t believe that with all his convincing I did not want a better phone but bc of ltm… now I do. haha. he says he doesn’t understand women. lol

  18. love the ending…i could not recover this fast. KJH just needs YEH so bad..he could not stop kissing her…can’t be helped!!! wish they are for real and EH will find her heart like AJ did…

    thanks so much koala again…really enjoyed it here…and to all LTM fans..worth the wait eh..and let’s give them blessings.sigh!!!

  19. i’m truly sorry if its bother you. It was already havbeen posted on some LTM post, but i forgot which one. Just for refreshingly reminder ;)

    The due is on July 6, 2011 if i’m not mistaken. Uri YEH is currently on top, however i left the page afterwork today with approximately around 80,000 distance of vote from the second girl. And now, its almost 3 AM in Indonesia and she is catching up faster than usual (3500 or more gap of vote, i guess. I’ve check it all the time like i have nothing to do in my life. Yeah, i’ll do it for uri YEH only kekeke).

    Please support uri YEH, will you *mmuach mmuachh

  20. The ending made me speechless, of course in a good way…….. Now I am hoping YEH and KJH can be real couple after we see all their chemistry in LTM.
    Koala, thank you for all your hard work of baby recaps, recaps, spoilers, and everything you have done! The passsion we all have for YEH and KJH will be remembered forever.

  21. I get it!!! I really do. Yoon Eun Hye’s characters, Once they get a little freedom, they tend to dislike marriage. Same thing in Goong, coffee prince, and now this damn show!! I dont know about MFL, I think her character really wanted to get married, but IDK. Anyways, her characters love to give the other half of the OTP heartache. My Poor Ki Joon

  22. After 2 months tormenting the viewers, who are the hopeless romantics bunch, with cliff hanging ending in almost every episodes.. Now the writer/s cleverly decided to end the story of this lovely OTP by hugging n kissing in a cliff, somewhere in Jeju-do… ~ Awwww….

    And, what are these 2 doing at the very end of ep 16? Looks to me another unscripted kissing/necking going on… Doh! How can I sleep now?

  23. Despite its flaws in the storyline and lack of consistency, what remained consistent was Ki Joon and Ah Jong’s love story and it took me on a beautiful ride throughout the entire 16 episodes. I’m sad to see the drama come to an end (and wouldn’t it be awesome if they decided to do a special episode showing their wedding and maybe a baby or two???). I’m going to miss KJ and AH, but looking forward to seeing them both on future projects…hopefully, together! Thanks Koala for all of your hard work and effort in producing your recaps so quickly. The baby recaps is what saved me and kept me sane throughout this journey. Consider me a regular at The Playground! :)

  24. Koala!!! Thanks for feeding us, LTM fans with great comments, spoilers, recaps!!
    We love ya!!!!! GUMAWO!!!!!!!!! :P

  25. once more thanks, Koala for all the recaps & thoughts about LTM…this is quite a playground you have…I just love our OTP…thanks again

  26. have seen part of the finale DURING LUNCH TIME. gosh can not wait for 4:30 pm so i could go home watch the full episode…..

  27. Don’t u just love the way he’s grasping the back of her head when he’s devouring her mouth? Like he can’t get enuff of her. I had a feeling its a ji hwan thing. The head grasping. Not his character. Cause hes done it too w/cola kiss

    • @Elise
      I think you are right. that is a Ji Hwan thing.
      But What I cant get over is how he put his arm around her waist and hauled her up flush against him. So manly and sexy. Gah!!

      • kang ji hwan can’ resist those lusioust and dimpled lipst so his not devouring her, his eating her.

      • @leishers, you are right that thing he did by hauling her closer and devoring her mouth was so manly, like he was earning for that kiss to get deeper and sweeter. and i think it wasn’t scripted, because of the way she reacted, she was startled when he did that!!!! lol lol lol lol!!!!

  28. Mz Koala many many thanksssssssssss what a great job for all ur hardwork pls accept my sincere gratitude and appreciation ur just super duper awesome what an amazing journey with our OTP and i know this is not end for our OTP but the beginning of their true love story so we will all be waiting here in ur playground for the next real life episode of our OTP to be continued love story? missing them already huhuhu

  29. hey guys i research about YEH boyfriend and guess what i found it says there that her boyfriend is kim jong kook….. so ugly i dont like him to her….. check it out….. but they never admit it that they have special relation…. just check it guys if that true…. Ms. koala would you mind to answer me? is that really her bf?

  30. Koala, you truly are a blessing to us. Just imagine the heart breaking scenes and tormenting episodes LTM brought our entire household, that without your recaps we will be forever sobbing in tears and pain. Nevertheless our OTP has made our weeks worth waiting for the next scenes. KUDOS to you and hope you get to be a writer in dramas like this….THANKS!!!!

  31. i just read a news here that YEH’s bf is kim jong kook…. her leading man in the drama series x-man…. is that true? i dont like the guy…. for sure… he’s not good looking at all….. and sweet unlike kang ji hwan….

      • really how did you know leishers? because i just read that in google….. just type yoon eun hye boyfriend 2010….. and it will appear….. so sad i don’t like the guy at all…… maybe YEH was a cataract….. hehehehehe

    • Well since K-celebs tend to hide their relationship status, I cant say I know for sure. But I seriously dont think thats possible.
      Alot of people do want YEH and KJK to date because they were just so adorable in XMan, even I hoped they had something. I’m not concrete about this, but I highly doubt it Ali. The last news I read about YEH and KJK even being in the same vicinity was when she went to his first concert since the army. But if you go on allkpop, they had an updated article about KJK and YEH, it was when the her fans attacked him for using YEH to get popular and what not.

      • thanks leishers….. so they are not bf’s or gf’s hahahhaa so happy to hear that…. i hope her bf would be kang ji hwan….. so are they dating? and is there any behind the scene that the sbs will be aired to us? hope they will post it…….

  32. in the article it says that YEH attended kim jong kook concert and sit there for about 3 hrs… and after the concert she went at the back of the stage and even talk to KJK….. its killing me here…… Ms. koala could you confirm these…. so sad i love kang ji hwan for her…

  33. in the article it says that YEH attended kim jong kook concert and sit there for about 3 hrs… and after the concert she went at the back of the stage and even talk to KJK….. its killing me here……so sad i love kang ji hwan for her…

  34. Hello. I am a stalker too of ur site. Discovered from DB. Hardly comment but love to read all the comments that makes me giggle like a two year old. Thought I’d include my 2 cents on their narration as couldn’t help myself- perhaps looking/hearing too deep into it…They are referring to relationships in general, for example of how when a relationship goes stagnate people often lie to themselves that they are content in their relationship when perhaps the “boat” had already sailed…The drama showed the various relationships thru the dad, the ex, Sanghee, So Ran, etc. Another example is Dad, says he and lady friend are just “friends” and I. The end he basically stopped kidding himself and was “honest and sincere” about his true feelings… Thinking too deep?!

  35. Thanks ms Koala looking forward for your next drama recaps .Love your playground, been visiting it since 49 days.Thank you again.

  36. hmmm………………just reading your baby recap really make my morning. Been up all night to finish my report and so drain out. Me think that this is just a good breakfast in bed. LOL been going through all KJH drama and will start this week on Be Strong Geum Soon. Well, its 100over episodes, I hope I m still alive until the end. Hey…you’ll girlfriend and especially Ms. K, it’s indeed the nicest cool playground we all created here. Ms. K, thanks for all the beautiful recap of LTM, you saved us with our thirst of LTM/KJW/YEH. I just wish hope want another KJW/YEH.

    Ok, m going back to bed just for tinny winny bit.

    Love you all chingus. Love you K. Muah……

  37. I am just so satisfied and very much happy with the way the kdrama ends. I soooo love Ah Jung ang Ki Joon. KJH and YEH are great actors who were able to really play their part so well. Yes, i felt the emotions raging in every situation in the drama. You’re right, the chemistry between them is very good.
    Thank you, Koala, for giving us a good recap on every episode. I just love how you made your side comments. It always leaves me gigling and most of the time, agreeable with your opinion and views. I hope we get to see another good k-drama, one that is not too heavy to watch, but one that it light and would amuse us, and de-stress us.
    Will wait for your suggestion on what good kdrama to watch next. And would await of your recaps.
    LTM…i just love you!

  38. I know a lot of LTM fans want YEH and KJH to be a real couple. However, from some scenes in LTM, I feel KJH looks like a gay. Just take a look of how he moved his waist at house warming party and his fingers’ movement when he opened the pen to write down his ideal woman in episode 16. I do respect same-sex relationship. My point here is if this is the case, I don’t think YEH and KJK can be couple for real.

    • I know this isn’t the forum for soapboxes, and I know you don’t mean to be disrespectful, but the first step to respecting same-sex anything (people or marriages), is to know that nobody “looks like” an anything. You cannot tell a person’s sexuality by looking at them. It is offensive to homosexuals to suggests that being homosexual means you have to look or act in a certain, usually stereotypical, manner.

      Okay, soapbox over. Please go back to your regularly scheduled swooning :)

  39. enjoyed reading every bit of your recaps. love every bit of LTM.

    A wonderful cute drama is born, thanks to the incredible acting and support of staff & fans, i have come to love Mondays when it used to be “I hate Mondays” like Garfield for the past 2 months. Sad that I am going to dread Monday coming too soon again.
    just trying to say thanks though I know u have received heaps of that but cant help myself for wanting to hug everyone here, hoping that we will be able to do this at the playground again. So, until then.

  40. Ms. Koala, its a big WOW!… I wish that those viewers who make a
    bad comment about the ending of “Lie to Me” can read this because,
    it is more emphasize that the ending connects the previous episode &
    she found the missing part that she’s been looking for, and that is KJH
    or Ki Joon… I love it!… Lie to Me is the best romantic comedy…. I just
    hope that Kang Ji Hwan will NOT lost hope for his LOVE to YEH…
    FIGHTING!!… Cheers
