Secret Garden Episode 12 Summary

So hard being a woman. We’re not stupid, we know nothing last forever in this world, but we’re not crazy enough to start a relationship with an ending-nothing-deal. At least, Kim Joo Won, you should be confident that you can bring your love to the end.
Maybe Joo Won desperately to make Ra Im his little mermaid, but instead gave it up and  flip the situation. He said he will be her little mermaid, and he will be disappear like seafoam later. Im said that she has no right to be little mermaid because she didn’t love him and Ra Im never thought about him though just in 5 minutes, and unfortunately he always thought of Ra Im, so he decided to be the little mermaid for Ra Im.

Ra Im, actually whoever becomes little mermaid will not change the situation, any deep as their love would still eventually disappear like seafoam, the future of their relationship will end up with nothing. But for  Joo Won, it is the reality for them. Too many people are having an interest in his life (his rivals, his mother, investors, stakeholders, etc) and finally one day he had to do his politic-marriage. Or even if eventually he decided to choose Ra Im and lost everything to simple life, until when will the happiness last. When the happiness over, he probably would hate Ra Im for making him choose her. Heh? Shame on you Kim Joo Won-ssi!!! X|

In short, what Joo Won wanted to say was “I will give you everything but marriage.”

Ra Im said,no matter how beautiful and happy the relationship was, but if it just ended up as the seafoam, no woman would want it. No woman in the world would start a love without an ending. That’s why Ra Im didn’t give Joo Won any answer. So knew they would never make it.

Joo Won insisted. He thought Ra Im was too complicated. In his opinion, there were many couples who love each other but didn’t end up married. He asked what she was going to do if they got married but then he left her? Hooo  yeah… good point! this time I agree with your opinion Kim Joo Won-ssi.
Moreover, Joo Won felt Ra Im actually want the relationship because she had fallen for him. Ra Im immediately argued that Joo Won had misunderstood her. She firmly said “I don’t like you!” Surprisingly, Joo Won just cherished her hair and calmly said, “You’re nervous when you lie.” Ooooohhh he seemed to have read Ra Im thoroughly.

Joo Won asked Ra Im to consider his offer as her little mermaid, Joo Won expected an answer soon.

Ah Yeong and Secretary Kim were still in shock that their President could find many details about Ah Yeong personal information. Ah Young  thought those things could only be known by Ra Im, but surely her best friend wouldn’t ever share it with President Kim.

She check on the chandelier at home, thinking maybe Joo Won had installed some hidden cameras there. Ra Im asked what happened and Ah Young told her about the dinner. Ra Im, knowing what actually had happened, then asked, “You even walked around without wearing any underwear?” Ah Yeong innocently answered, “Have you ever seen me wear those at home?” …Ough God! :lol:

Madam Moon got a report about Joo Won drew the EChun map, addressed Oska with oppa, and using Oska-printed-socks. She remembered  Ji Hyun,  Joo Won’s therapist, and concluded that her son might be mentally imbalance. She then successfully forced Joo Won to follow the match meeting again after she threatened that Ra Im would be kicked out from Korea.

Yoon Seul suddenly called Ra Im and invited her to the museum. At the museum she told her that one hour before Joo Won was also in that place doing a match meeting. Yoon Seul said that to Ra Im because she realized Joo Won-Ra Im relationship was serious and she wanted to clarify their position. She or Ra Im wouldn’t end up with him, that’s for sure. But meanwhile she still needed to revenge Oska and that could be involving Joo Won.

She wanted Ra Im understand it. She apologized for ruining Ra Im relationship with Joo Won. She only use Joo Won to make Oska miserable. Ra Im asked Yoon Seul if she loved Oska. Yoon Seul replied, “I did, in the beginning.” Yoon Seul began to doubt her feelings for Oska, thus it was hard to for them to reunite. She thought she could do anything to him then, because she hated him as much as she loved.

Actually, after all I think Yoon Seul is not an evil woman. She just a victim who had been hurt so badly that it’s just a natural if she turned out to be a ruthless and sometime heartless person. Go girl, Do it! As long as you don’t hurt others, but Oska.

Yoon Seul continued, “We both choose complicated men to love.”
Wait the minute, now I’m getting confused with Yoon Seul….So she declared that she would become rivals as well as partners for Ra Im? Dunno :?
Joo Won tried all day to contact Ra Im but failed.  He was already in front of Ra Im’s house when she came. She said she was too busy to answer the phone or  to reply Joo Won’s text.

Joo Won said he thought about her always, while she never had a ny time to just answer his phone. Joo Won still demanded Ra Im’s answer, but she said she was still thinking about it. Joo Won asked how long. Instead of answering the question, Ra Im asked him back, “How could a man who claimed to always think about me do a match meeting?”

Joo Won was confused, but also was pleased to see Ra Im’s objections. He assumed she was jealous. But Ra Im denied it.

Joo Won said he came to Ra Im because he missed he. He also blamed her for removing her pictures from his phone. Then Joo Won took a picture of the sullen Ra Im, and said that Ra Im looked prettier when she was angry.

Madam Moon brought Yoon Seul to the family gathering, and introduced her as a woman who was going to be paired with Joo Won. Joo Won and Oska were shocked. Madam Moon introduced Yoon Seul on Oska. Joo Won said they both had known each other. Yoon Seul looked worried and confused, but she finally said that she’s merely a fan. Oska kept silent and rushed to rest room. Only Joo Won and Yoon Seul who realized his anxiety.

Yoon Seul followed Oska out of the meeting room. Oska asked what her purpose of coming to his family gathering. Yoon Seul said she was invited by Joo Won’s mother, and also wanted to see his face shivering because of her. Oska wondered how Yoon Seul could be like that and how long she would have that behavior.
Yoon Seul said firstly Oska had to find the reasons of her action. She was no longer the nice girl he knew. She said a woman could be a maid or a queen depend on the way she was treated by the man she loved. Yoon Seul said she also didn’t know how long she would make Oska suffer. “Lets see, wouldn’t we know the next time we meet?”

Oh oppa, what sin have you commited that turned her to be like that?

After the family gathering ended, Joo Won came to his mother to ask her about the Yoon Seul scheme.  Joo Won said he wouldn’t marry Yoon Seul because she loved another man. For Madam Moon it wasn’t a problem because Joo Won also loved another woman. She actually thought thatYoon Seul wasn’t the best choice, but at least she’s better than Ra Im.
Joo Won then went to Oska’s place and found his cousin in a gloomy mood. Joo Won asked for a understanding that he didn’t invite Yoon Seul. But it wasn’t Yoon Seul coming that made Oska angry. It was Joo Won humiliating Yoon Seul bu saying that she and Oska had already known each other in front of their family. These words made Yoon Seul awry and worried. Joo Won should’ve just followed her game. Oska didn’t want to see Yoon Seul got a bad fall at that moment.

And look who’s calling in the middle of their intense argument? It was Ra Im. She asked Oska to change the rock climbing training schedule. Oska immediately invited Ra Im to meet. Joo Won who was still in front of Oska, was very curious. Oska said that Gil Ra Im was the only one who could made him feel better and at ease .

Finally, Joo Won invited Yoon Seul to meet. He told her tha Oska still loved her. Yoon Seul said plainly that she knew it. Joo Won knew that Yoon Seul used him to make Oska upset, and asked her to stop because he was tired of being dragged within their problems. Yoon Seul said that in fact there was no problem for Joo Won because his relationship with Ra Im won’t end up happily ever after anyway.

Then Joo Won started talking about love. Yoon Seul was amazed how he had changed from a cold person to be someone who believed in love, thanks to Ra Im. Yoon Seul was aware that Joo Won loved Ra Im so much.

At different place, Oska and Ra Im met. They eat foods that Joo-Won hated: pig skin. Oska told Ra Im the truth that the reason he asked to meet her when she called was to make Joo Won upset. Ra Im asked what Joo Won had done wrong to him. Oska said he was disappointed by Joo Won that day.

Then Oska hared his troubled mind with Ra Im. He said he had met many women, but yet still didn’t understand anything about them. Even the only woman he loved became his enemy. Ra Im said a person become an enemy because he/she was really hurt but still had the love. It’s the way an enemy to love with hating. Ra Im said that what really happened between Oska and Yoon Seul was just a misunderstanding. Oska knew it was just a misunderstanding, but he was afraid that the real reason behind his cruel intention was because of the love she still had for him. Oska would feel guilty if it was true.

It was an ironic scene where everyone sat in the same table with “the wrong partner”, but was drowned in each of his/her thoughts about his/her love one.

Jong Soo just knew that the action school’s debt was paid off. His investigation resulted the name of Kim Joo Won who did it. He came to LOEL to confront him, but at the front gate he saved (again) Hee Won who was almost got a hard slap by a jerk. Hee Won was fascinated by her savior. Her stare reminded me of Joo Won’s, but hopefully she was not as crazy as her brother in the love matter.

Jong Soo confronted Joo Won for interfering his business. He wondered Joo Won found out about the debt. Apparently when Joo Won being Kim Ra Im, he came into Jong Soo’s office to see Ra Im’s files. And while he was reading the file, the phone rang and it was from the debt collectors.  Jong Soo told Joo Won to take back his money.  Joo Won said it wasn’t charity. It was for Ra Im. He didn’t want to have Ra Im answered that kind of phone and thought hard about the debt. And since Joo Won was a businessman, he said just took it as an investment. However, Jong Soo still insisted Joo Won to take his money back.

Director Park heard that Joo Won paid for the Action school debt, the place where Gil Ra Im work. He was sure that Ra Im was pregnant. For director Park, pregnancy and claustrophobia issues were enough to destroy Kim Joo Won. He even met Ji Hyun and pretended to be a claustrophobia patient in order to get some information about Joo Won’s illness. But by her smart way, Ji Hyun managed to make Director Park to be her real patient. Director Park said he was suffered by the pressure from his boss who was arrogant and always put him down. Hoo I feel pity for him.

Hwang Jung Eum (Hwang sunbae) came to Joo Won to invite him to the action school workshop (as he had promised). Joo Won said he would take care of their accommodation problems. Jung Eum accepted it gladly, and said Joo Won’s presence hopefuly could cheer up Ra Im whose two students had just resigned.

Joo Won said Jung Eum that he was curious about two things. The first thing was why Jung Eum always helped him to get close to Ra Im. Jung Eum simply replied, “Because you make lots of money and spend a lot of money. I hope you can hold on to Ra Im closely and never let her go.” The second thing was why Jung Eum used banmal (informal speech) when he talked to him. Jung Eum said that next year he would be 31 years old. Joo Won said casually,”Well, I’m 34.” Jung Eum was amazed, “Oh you look young.” Joo Won just make a gesture and smugly said, “I am.” Jung Eum directly changed his speech to chondaemal (fomal speech).

Joo Won immediately arranged a meeting with BiSong Pine resort’s officials to see the preparations before the resort officially opened.Well, of course there’s another reason. But we keep it later. We’re going to Oska first.
Oska prepared for the Christmas concert in full spirit. He met Tae Sun in the studio to invite him to attend the concert as a guest star. Then Oska asked why Tae Sun didn’t sue people who had sold his song on Oska management and had put him down as a songwriter. Tae Sun said that person had regreted it and he worried if he had sued the person, Oska would have been in trouble too. What did that mean…worrying Oska? Oska then asked him about Yoon Seul, but Tae Sun said he didn’t know where is  ‘ajeomma‘. However, the truth was Yoon Seul was already there, watching Oska from a distance.

Now back to the action school workshop. All members arrived at the appointed place which, of course, Bi Song Pine resort. Ra Im and Jong Soo were shocked finding Joo Won there. Joo Won and Jung Eum pretended as if it was purely a coincidence.

When the others went into a retreat, Joo Won hold Ra Im, he wanted to ask Ra Im about the little mermaid. Ra Im saying there is no time to think about useless thing. Joo Won finally understood to postpone it. But he still wondered what Ra Im to do with Oska when they meeting last time, whether Ra Im  put her cutie face on Oska and made spoiled voices for Oska . Ra Im said it wasn’t his matter. Joo Won said it was his business, he said “Why wouldn’t it matter? We Kissed!” Soon Ra Im shut Joo Won’s mouth with her hand. Ra Im embarrassed if any members who hears a Joo Won-childish-screaming.

Apparently, the director of action school’s position had to have a roling every year. This was to minimize the risk of losing the head of school because of the dangerous work as a stuntman. As for 2011 Jong Soo chose Hwang Jung Eum as his successor.

Out side the meeting room, Joo Won complimented Jong Soo for handling this matter quite well. He said as a CEO, he knew how hard it was to give up a power. Jong Soo said that because he’s better than him. Joo Won then said “Most Arab that I know is modest, though.” Arab?  :o   Joo won apparantly had not changed his mind about Jong Soo as an Araba oil merchant. :lol:

Joo Won then asked whether the rolling system could put Ra Im as the director. Jong Soo said there was always a possibility and Ra Im had a skill. Joo Won instantly told Jong Soo to fired Ra Im for any reason such as being too sexy or something. Jong Soo said he often thought about it, to put her away from that dangerous work. But he said that job was everything to Ra Im, and he didn’t have a right to grab it from Ra Im. “When it becomes everything to a person, you don’t have the right to take it away.” But Joo Won confidently argued that he would take it away since he had a right.

When he entered the recration room, he saw Ra Im was already asleep on the floor with others. He kicked the person who was sleeping next to Ra Im and then put a blanket on her. He then laid down beside her. Joo Won watched her sleep and stayed that way for a long time…she was so peaceful.

Ra Im wrinkled her forehead. She had a bad dream. Joo Won touched her forehead (as he did in the hospital), and that woke her up. Then they just stared at each other for quite a long time… :left:

Then a reciprocal mind-talk started between these silence couple.
Joo Won: What is so bad in your dream?
Ra Im: Because you are in my dream.
Joo Won: You are no happy with me even in your dreams?
Ra Im: Even so, You come, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow …

Those lines pretty much reminded me of the prolog in Lee Na Yeong and Joe Odagiri’s 2008 movie “Bi Mong” (Dream).

Whoa…this is one of my favorite scenes. I was melting seeing Joo Won’s gaze :mrgreen:
