With eight more episodes to go, I just have to remind Nice Guy to stay awesome and don’t go cray cray on me. Not that I have any indication it will, but I’ve been burned so many times I just want to say an extra prayer that Lee Kyung Hee has indeed mapped out her entire story and is merely filling in the blanks along the way. If I were to think about the current state of affairs in NG-land, I might be chuckling until my belly hurts. The OTP has matching head injuries, one with a subdural hematoma that can burst anytime and his head hurts on occasion, the other has traumatic memory loss and the road to regaining her memories does not look like a cake walk in the least. On top of that, the evil duo of Jae Hee and lawyer Ahn are out to get them, for financial and personal reasons, while Team Eun Gi has their heart in the right place but doesn’t strike me as nearly as devious and ruthless as Team Jae Hee. Which is why Maru really is the perfect guy to give back to Eun Gi what his presence in her life may have cost her. Not that she wants Tae San over Maru, but more like Maru probably thinks he’s not long for this world so at least he’ll give her back financial security and get rid of Jae Hee before he bites the dust. No matter what happens, I’m just enjoying whatever happy moments come my OTP’s way.
Preview for episode 13:
Jae Hee: It’s like Director is another person, she plays so well with Eun Seok.
Eun Gi: If you find me a burden, if I’m in your way, won’t you run away from me?
Maru: Didn’t you agree that if I returned Eun Gi to her rightful place, I’ll get half of Tae San Group? Since I’m getting half of Tae San, of course I’m willing to do anything.
Jae Hee: I wasn’t expecting to see you again. There is some regret, but its good to see you.
Maru: Don’t lie to me.
Detective: We are from the Seoul Prosecutor’s Office. Tae San Group has decided to file a complaint against Kang Maru.
Lawyer Ahn: When the game is over, he won’t be able to extricate himself that easily.
Jae Hee: Do you know what intentions Kang Maru had when he approached you? Eun Gi-ah, Eun Gi-ah!
Spoilers for episode 14:
According to a poster on DC, Eun Gi loses her post-accident memories as well due to whatever traumatic thing Jae Hee told her. The condition signals that her original memories may be coming back again. But this causes her to no longer recognize Maru and she’s cold to him, not believing who they are to each other. Maru has no choice but to follow her from a distance to keep her safe as she heads home from the hospital.
Jae Hee kneels to Maru to confess that she was the one who set him up as a corporate spy and she regrets it. Maru is disgusted by her actions and tells her that she makes him want to retch. Lawyer Ahn confirms his suspicions on Eun Gi’s condition and wants her declared legally incompetent so she cannot take over Tae San.
