Hyun Joo is set on getting a divorce despite Do Young’s objection. In order to push him further away, she lies that she has met someone else and no longer loves him. This episode is so filled with discord between them, it must be emotionally draining …. both on and off camera.
Do Young is worried that Hyun Joo’s collapse could be due to something serious and wants her to have a more thorough check-up. She refuses as she does not want him to find out about her condition.
I’m a bit confused why Hyun Joo is upset in this scene. Da Hye is brought into the picture again and she tells Do Young she will give him the divorce she thinks he wants. I thought she is the one who wanted him to accept the JQ contract.
Do Young cannot understand why Hyun Joo wants a divorce. It did not make sense and surely Da Hye could not be the reason since their relationship was before he met Hyun Joo.
For the umpteenth time, Hyun Joo reminds Do Young he had married her not out of love but because of pity. Frankly it’s getting a bit tiresome. Why doesn’t the drama enlighten us what this is all about? Isn’t 10 years together enough to build up your love for each other? It makes me wonder if this is a genuine thorn in Hyun Joo’s side or simply an excuse to push Do Young away.
Leaving the family court after filing for divorce
Do Young too wants to know what Hyun Joo meant when she claims that he had married her out of pity.
But then gave up as it seems pointless now.
Do Young’s flashback memory which gives the impression that Hyun Joo was expecting his child at that time and had even considered getting an abortion without his knowledge. Could this be what she meant about him marrying her out of a sense of obligation?
Do Young finds out that contrary to his impression of fellow architect Choi Joon being brought in to compete for JQ’s contract, the company had in fact decided on Choi Joon. Da Hye had asked them to reconsider as she wanted to give Do Young a chance.
She wants him to succeed, not ruin his life over a woman (Hyun Joo). At first I had wondered why she was crying in this scene but on reflection, I guess it’s because she’s trying so hard for his sake and yet he had not taken it seriously. Instead of grabbing the opportunity and working hard to prove himself, he had wanted to give up.
Hyun Joo’s hope of a successful cure is dashed as an overseas patient with a similar condition did not survive the operation. Dr Jang had been positive that she can be saved but now they are back to square one. He feels really bad that he had given her false hope.
It must have been traumatic for daughter Saet Byeol to witness Hyun Joo’s collapse. Surprisingly mature for her young age, she tells mum not to blame herself should she too inherit this sickness. Saet Byeol had figured it out after having overheard her conversation with grandpa and had even looked up Dr Jang to get a scan. He had refused since she’s a minor.
As Hyun Joo walks along the path she used to take with Do Young, it brings back memories of their happy moments together.
Walking hand in hand in the sunset ….. just as what the drama is named after. I like this scene very much, it’s one of the best for me so far. Do Young taking a mental snapshot of Hyun Joo, singing to her and calling her his angelic wife. It just makes it that much more heartbreaking …..
