Angel’s Revenge Episode 77 Recap
And we are all still dancing around Sarang’s disappearance. Not surprising, Seon Yu starts her own investigation while Tae Jeong decides to abandon the search for his son. He does give a warning to Seon Yu who refuses to give up her own search even if it gets her kicked out of the Seo household. Of course, to hide the truth, Tae Jeong fosters more misunderstandings between Ji Hui and Seon Yu.
Seon Yu demands the truth. Tae Jeong tries to evade the question, but can’t so he actually tells the truth. Sarang is missing and can’t be found. Seon Yu calls him a liar, but he says since she knows he was investigating then she should call and confirm with the PI. Tae Jeong angrily storms from the office leaving the brokenhearted Seon Yu collapsed and sobbing her heart out. I can’t believe the secretary didn’t hear the raised voices and crying. While Seon Yu confronted Tae Jeong, Pung Ho and his wife dragged Dal Nyeo to the police station to confess her sins and pay for her crimes. Dal Nyeo just stays on her knees and pleads that she was wrong and has been punished enough. She always dreams of the baby at night and Jin Yu’s death. That is not punishment enough. Even though she professes to love the child she threw away, Pung Ho and Bong Hwang call her a liar. She chose her son over her grandson. That’s not love. Well…it is love. A very unhealthy, misguided love. She is enabling Tae Jeong’s evilness entirely too much with her actions. The devil calls right at that moment and Pung Ho grabs the phone and says he’s turning Dal Nyeo in. She jumps up and quickly takes back her phone and tells Tae Jeong that isn’t happening before getting back to her horrible pleading for understanding. There is NO WAY the Heos will understand or condone her actions…even if they don’t go through with turning her into the police.
Ji Seok spies the distraught Seon Yu at the office, but can’t catch her in time. He tries to call her, but no answer. He learns from his secretary that she and Tae Jeong were in his office at the same time. Ji Seok is really concerned. He calls his brother-in-law in and Tae Jeong is fearful when Ji Seok mentions Seon Yu, but thankfully the two have not talked to each other so he’s safe for now. Tae Jeong insists that nothing happened between him and Seon Yu and this relieves Ji Seok. So where did Seon Yu go? Looks like to a hiking trail where she sits down on a set of wooden stairs and bawls her eyes out. She curses herself for not knowing her precious nephew was indeed alive and not dead. How can she face her sister now? Well…it was wrong that no autopsy was done and I get that since Jin Yu was badly burned, the afterbirth could have been burned up, too, but how was Seon Yu to know that Dal Nyeo would have birthed the baby and stolen it only to abandon it? While it was totally inconceivable at first that Tae Jeong would totally turn his back on Jin Yu and the baby and then hurt the two to Seon Yu at one time…how could she possibly imagine as well just how monstrous Dal Nyeo could be, too?
The Heos are upset. Gi Jin had to help drag his collapsed and weeping father home. Enter Seon Yu who tells them that Tae Jeong said the baby cannot be found using the CCTV footage and that she had called and confirmed with the PI. What to do now? Pung Ho does not want to give up and neither does Seon Yu. They must find Sarang and bring the child back before Tae Jeong can get his hands on the baby. This leads Seon Yu to her nun friend whose name I can’t remember. Seon Yu, having been in an orphanage herself growing up as well as having worked with orphans, knows the system pretty well. She begs her friend to look into official organizations for parents who wanted to adopt a child but failed to meet the requirements. She also wants her friend to investigate any parents who may have withdrawn official applications to adopt as well. Smart cookie. Hopefully this search will turn up successful leads. I read an article once pointing out that to become a birth mother, no requirements are needed, but to become and adoptive mother and father there is so many requirements, red tape, and hoops to jump through that while there is no shortage of children, there isn’t a large number of people who are able to adopt. One person stated that the rules that apply to adoption should be forced upon people who naturally are having their own children as well. I get it…but that would be way to hard to govern…and totally off topic right now.
Tae Jeong visits Dal Nyeo and asks if she’s okay. She is happy her “great son” still loves her. Gag. He is the first to turn away from mummy as she embarrasses him, but he also gets upset if anyone does anything untoward to her. Go figure. This man makes no sense. But…I guess there is some sort of love under all that shame. He tells her to give up Sarang since the child is nowhere to be found and to watch out for the Heos and Seon Yu now. He then goes home and waits for Seon Yu. He confronts her about Sarang. He wants her to keep her yap shut about the baby and to leave well enough alone, but Seon Yu won’t. Oh…she won’t outright tell people right now about Sarang and Tae Jeong’s misdeeds. She needs to find Sarang first and bring him back. Tae Jeong points out Ji Seok will be angry and will kick her out. Seon Yu doesn’t care. She will bring her nephew back. Tae Jeong, who was insisting on abandoning his newly discovered son, then changes tact and insists that if Seon Yu brings the child back, he will insist on his parental rights. Seon Yu is livid, but not surprised. Tae Jeong will only take Sarang if he can benefit from the child.
Tae Jeong goes in first and Aran mentions that her anger has subsided and she thinks adoption will do Ji Hui good so if Tae Jeong is okay with it, then fine. Tae Jeong doesn’t care as long as Ji Hui is happy. Eyeroll. Seon Yu enters the house in time to hear Aran tell Tae Jeong he can’t have an affair with another woman now just because Ji Hui is infertile and bring that baby home or else… What if the baby wasn’t from an affair but from a previous relationship that had already ended? She probably wouldn’t let him off then either. Thus Tae Jeong realizes he needs to implement whatever plan he has to take over L Foods NOW before the shit hits the fan with Seon Yu, Jin Yu, and the baby. Ji Hui overhears Seon Yu mentioning adoption and Tae Jeong lies about what they were talking about causing Ji Hui to get even angrier. Seon Yu, fed up, says she never said that but knows Ji Hui won’t believe her and goes into her room.
Inside, Seon Yu takes out her sister’s picture and apologizes and cries. Ji Seok comes out and she hastily puts the picture away and wipes her tears. He knows she’s been crying and is upset that she won’t tell him the reason. He then asks her who he is. This throws Seon Yu. She then breaks into a warm smile and tells him he’s “Seo Ji Seok-ssi” of course. Wrong. He then tells Seon Yu to ask him who she is. So Seon Yu does. Ji Seok’s answer? You’re my wife! He wants her to share everything with him. Seon Yu insists she is just having one of those days and she thanks her husband before going to take a shower. Ji Seok then walks over to her drawer and takes the picture of Jin Yu out. He ain’t stupid. He knows that she’s upset over something to do with her sister. And even if Seon Yu doesn’t want to spit out the whole story…she could possibly tell Ji Seok about learning her sister’s child is still alive and well without completely revealing the truth. But Seon Yu won’t. I think the search would go better if Ji Seok put all his efforts into it as well.
We do get a cute scene where Mrs. Gong explains that since Bangtong worries about Wu Hyeon getting lost, it means the boy doesn’t hate Wu Hyeon. This makes uri samchon very happy. He then decides to do whatever he can until the little boy fully likes him. So he ties a hanky on his head to disguise himself, lol. He then takes a fancy new bike to the school. Bangtong comes out and Wu Hyeon says he doesn’t know the little boy, but the bike is for him. Wu Hyeon then rushes away leaving Bangtong surprised, yet happy at the unexpected gift. Sooooo cute.
Ah…and we end this with Ji Seok knowing the Nami Foods report is missing. Seon Yu puts two and two together and takes evidence of Tae Jeong handing money over to Hyeonsu to Hyeonsu and demands he give her the evidence now or else. Little does Seon Yu know that Ji Seok has called for the report to be made again and that the auditor complained of the substandard facilities, etc. Hyeonsu essentially shot himself in the foot by his actions towards Ji Seok and his insistence he was Tae Jeong’s friends as that meant Ji Seok remembered the report all the more because of it. Haha. We all knew that Hyeonsu would be an albatross for Tae Jeong. Hopefully Seon Yu can get the stuff from him before Hyeonsu finds out the contract is a complete lost cause.
