Angel’s Revenge Episode 43 Recap
After a somewhat dismal run of episodes and Seon Yu proving to be much too good for her own well being and revenge as she could never beat Tae Jeong at his one game, our former nun is wising up. It only took her 30 some episodes but she’s finally getting her act together. And the icing on the cake is that there is no way she’s going to let Ji Hui and Tae Jeong take Ji Seok away from her. Oh…plus her revenge scheme is hitting Ji Hui first since Ji Hui hurt Ji Seok. And yet she won’t admit that she just might like him, lol.
So Tae Jeong and Ji Hui lie to Mrs. Gong and say that it’s just the secretary at the door and they won’t invite her in since it’s a weekend. Tae Jeong goes outside while Ji Hui distracts her grandmother by asking where they should put the flowers she just arranged. Tae Jeong is livid and wonders why Seon Yu just doesn’t get it and leave them alone since she already lost. She brings up the miscarriage and Tae Jeong’s faking his coma to use that against his grieving wife. Tae Jeong angrily admits to this and replies this is all Seon Yu’s fault. If she had left well enough alone and not backed him into a corner, then none of this would have happened. Seon Yu smiles. Yes. It is all her fault. Enter Ji Hui. She starts dressing Seon Yu down, too. The couple finally leave her and Seon Yu cracks a grin.
At the restaurant, Gyuri and Jeong In are worried about Seon Yu since she took the morning off. Is she sick? Did something happen? They ask Ji Seok, but he has no idea. He goes into his office to call Seon Yu, but throws his phone down. Why contact her when she doesn’t show up to work the very next day after she quit. Old habits die hard. Even though Ji Seok’s faith has been shaken…he can’t stop himself from worrying and wondering and liking. If Seon Yu really was a gold digger with a hidden agenda…Ji Seok would be in big trouble.
Ji Hui and Tae Jeong have their first date in forever. They happily take a walk when Tae Jeong gets a phone call from an unknown number. As soon as he answers the call, his own voice greets him. Looks like Seon Yu recorded his confession about faking the coma!!!! At last. A smart cookie. Tae Jeong hangs up rattled and lies that it was the wrong number. For the rest of the day, Tae Jeong ignores Seon Yu’s calls. She texts him and says that isn’t wise and then Ji Hui’s phone starts ringing. This freaks him out and he immediately tells her not to answer because its probably the office trying to get in touch when he’s been ignoring their calls to spend the day peacefully with his wife (such a statement makes Ji Hui very happy). She tells him it is just their house and tells her mother they will be back after lunch. Tae Jeong sends her home alone so he can talk with Seon Yu.
Meanwhile…oh…cuteness overload! Bong Chang calls up Wu Hyeon who excitedly rushes over to the restaurant. He is very happy to be working their every day with her. Chang then replies that she doesn’t think he’ll be able to do the job. She then has him sit down and eat her handmade pizza especially for him. This makes Wu Hyeon happy, but he doesn’t want to visit them whenever he’s craving pizza, he wants to work there with her. Chang is still hesitant since he does get lost easily. Wu Hyeon then offers to take her for a ride and the two have a very cute motorbike ride. Samchon’s face was precious when they hit a bump and Chang’s grip on his waist tightened. He was in shock and then 7th heaven. This was all witnessed by Dal Nyeo who comes to think that Seon Yu must have put Bong Chang up to sticking close to Ji Seok’s uncle. Right. Seon Yu isn’t one to actually get her family involved and does many things without their knowledge. So…after the motorbike ride, Wu Hyeon promises that he can memorize a map and never get lost again leaving Bong Chang with another dilemma. Will she or won’t she. It actually will probably be good for Wu Hyeon if he can leave the shelter of his home and family and try to stand on his own two feet as much as he can.
I won’t bother talking about Dal Nyeo’s conversation with Chang who is very good at her smiling barbs. Plus, Dal Nyeo oversteps the line by talking about how Chang got proposed to twice. Nothing like rubbing salt in that wound.
Anywho, Tae Jeong is not happy as Seon Yu lays down the law. Tae Jeong must alter the date on Ji Hui’s black box to a later time to prove that Ji Hui wasn’t being truthful with Ji Seok. Tae Jeong doesn’t want to do this. How can he let Seon Yu tell him what to do? It’s fine if he doesn’t, but isn’t there someone he doesn’t want to listen to his confession? I was very proud of Seon Yu. It’s been over 30 episodes since she “started” her revenge and this is the first move she made towards actual vengeance. Huzzah!
Seon Yu goes back to work at the restaurant for the night and hands off all her revenue-increasing ideas to Ji Seok. Why should he take them? Seon Yu is saying she is honoring her promise to help him. Ji Seok says that he has no faith in her now, so why should he accept this? Seon Yu then reminds him how important raising the revenue is. If he doesn’t raise it then he will be shipped off to the US again. Seon Yu doesn’t want that when he’s working so hard. She wants him to be able to stay with his family. Come on, Ji Seok-ssi, why can’t you realize just how much Seon Yu cares even if she won’t tell you the whole truth?
Later Jeong In slips coming down the stairs and plates go crashing to the floor. Seon Yu rushes over and tells Jeong In to go take an order while she cleans up. Ji Seok comes out and sees this and watches her picking up the broken glass as she apologizes to the customers the food fell in front of. She cuts her finger and he barely restrains himself from rushing to her side. He then coldly leaves that night without saying anything to her. The girls are worrying about their obvious fight, but both are keeping mum on the subject. Seon Yu also leaves and Jeong In complains about just how obvious the two are. Everyone can tell when they were happily dating (which lasted what…half an episode or so) and now everyone can tell they are fighting.
Outside the restaurant, Tae Jeong pounces and drags Seon Yu into an alley and dumps out her purse. She confesses that she is a lot smarter now and won’t repeat the same mistake she made with the paternity papers. She again tells Tae Jeong to follow her instructions or else Ji Hui will learn the truth. At that time, Ji Hui gets a package with a voice pen in it!!! She calls up Tae Jeong who lies and says he accidentally put her name on the package, but it’s for him—from the office. He hangs up and Seon Yu commends his lying abilities. When he goes to yell some more, Seon Yu reminds him about the pen being in Ji Hui’s hands. Shouldn’t he hurry? LOL. Way to go Seon Yu.
Meanwhile, Ji Seok runs into an old friend at the bar where the friend talks abut meeting Eun Su in Paris. Ji Seok doesn’t seem to thrilled by this news. That must mean he’s dating someone right? His friend cannot believe he’s got a serious job and a girlfriend now. Ji Seok wonders about the girlfriend part and then explains the woman is someone he’s in pain when he’s with and someone he’s in pain when he’s without. His friend doesn’t get this and Ji Seok laughs at his relationship ignorance I guess because that means his friend probably hasn’t been too serious. There is always that type of pain in love at times. Is what I think he’s thinking…having never been in love myself, I can’t say with any experience.
Tae Jeong runs home, but the pen was a fake. Ji Hui leaves their bedroom after being assured she didn’t break the pen and Tae Jeong puts in an angry call to Seon Yu who reminds him about her request (turning Ji Hui into a liar to save Seon Yu’s relationship with Ji Seok and to enact revenge on Ji Hui who hurt Ji Seok and Tae Jeong who will essentially stab his wife in the back once more without her knowledge). If Tae Jeong doesn’t do this…then the next pen will have the recording on it.
Tae Jeong wakes up in the middle of the night and nervously slinks off to Ji Hui’s car to get the black box data. Ji Hui wakes up when she reaches her hand over and doesn’t find her husband. We end with Tae Jeong getting lights flashed in his eyes which has a surprised and startled look in them.
The previews! Oh joy! Ji Hui is getting her comeuppance for choosing Tae Jeong despite the evidence against him and choosing her love for a crooked man over her love for her brother. It promises to be good. I wonder what will happen to Seon Yu now that Mrs. Gong knows she’s working at the restaurant and started the same time as Ji Seok. Hopefully Mrs. Gong won’t interfere. We are almost halfway through this series…so it will be a little too early for the Seo family to realize Tae Jeong’s crimes.
