Love on a Rooftop – E74 (RETRY)

Seung-Hye starts to show her jealousy while Beom-Seok worries about when Do-Jin will return to Seung-Hye.  Do-Jin spends most of his time catering to Se-Ryung but gets caught the one time he decides to have a date-like meal with her.

THE RECAP

Jinwoo wheels a quiet Se-Ryung into her room as she mutters that she hates physical therapy. After he lays her down, she asks again if she will be able to walk again and Do-Jin reassures her. Grabbing on to his sleeve, she tells him not to be too sorry.

Meanwhile, Beom-Seok tells Yunho that he’s going to the United States to visit a hospital that might be able to save Se-Ryung.

Mi-Ja gets worried as well that Do-Jin might feel responsible for Se-Ryung and decides to go the hospital to drag him home…

It’s a reunion at the hospital as Dae-Shil and Seung-Hye also stop by. Dae-Shil goes into the room but Seung-Hye decides to wait in the cafe.

Se-Ryung sees Dae-Shil and glares at her telling her that it’s rude to come without notice. She accuses Dae-Shil of coming on Seung-Hye’s orders to see Se-Ryung’s status.

Dae-Shil denies it and tells Se-Ryung that she’s just here as a worried coworker. Se-Ryung grudgingly accepts this and asks for a report. Quick thinking Dae-Shil asks Do-Jin to leave since they will be talking about confidential business information. She also mouths to him that Seung-Hye is here.

Do-Jin stops by the cafe to get Seung-Hye a juice. He tells her to leave Se-Ryung to him and to watch over his cafe for him as he does not want to be indebted to both Se-Ryung and Seung-Hye. (=-=x so ignoring your fiance to go pamper another girl is not worth mentioning?!)

Mi-Ja arrives just as Seung-Hye and Dae-Shil walk out. Mi-Ja has an issue with every possibility as she gets annoyed that Seung-Hye is still seeing Do-Jin. Sang-Man suggests that seeing Seung-Hye might be better for Do-Jin who has been stuck to Se-Ryung lately…

They go in as Se-Ryung is in an exam. Mi-Ja tells her son to leave Se-Ryung to Beom-Seok.

Do-Jin refuses since Se-Ryung got hurt protecting him. Mi-Ja asks if Do-Jin is prepared to protect Se-Ryung for the rest of her life.

Do-Jin responds that this is what Mi-Ja wanted… But Mi-Ja answers honestly that it was before Se-Ryung got paralyzed… She does not care if he thinks that she is selfish or materialistic but as a mother she does not want him to be stuck with a paralyzed woman.

Do-Jin shouts at Sang-Man to take Mi-Ja away and she ends up relenting to leave for the day. After she leaves, Do-Jin goes to yell at Kyung-Tae for letting Seung-Hye know about Se-Ryung’s condition. Kyung-Tae apologizes that Dae-Shil get bugging him.

Beom-Seok interrupts this conversation by sending his secretary to bring Do-Jin in. He tells Do-Jin about his plan to go to the United States. He asks Do-Jin if Do-Jin can actually take responsibility for Se-Ryung… Can he actually return to becoming a doctor?

Do-Jin answers affirmatively that if it’s for Se-Ryung’s recovery, he’s willing to return to the hospital. This seems to appease Beom-Seok.

Dae-Shil tells Sun-Sook who looks relieved that there’s a reason that Beom-Seok has not been coming around. When Sun-Sook comments that Beom-Seok is a regular, Dae-Shil gets questions it and Sun-Sook gets angry.

Meanwhile, Yunho offers to stay with Se-Ryung while Do-Jin goes home and rest. However, Se-Ryung snaps that she wants Yunho to get Do-Jin some clean clothes so Do-Jin can stay with her.

Seung-Jae comes home to find Seung-Hye worrying about Se-Ryung. He tells her to keep remembering thay Se-Ryung’s accident was not her fault. Yet, when Seung-Hye brings up modeling, Seung-Jae leaves quickly.

In the midst of this, Seung-Hye texts Do-Jin to let him know that the cafe is doing well so he does not have to worry about it. He tells Do-Jin to cheer up.

At Joon-Bae’s restaurant, Dae-Ho works at trying to find a new sauce. When a mosquito buzzes around Joon-Bae, he wakes up and Dae-Ho invites him to sleep at Dong Rak Dang.

In the morning, Kyung-Tae comes out to find Dae-Shil typing away. He tells Dae-Shil to be more responsible and sleep as Dae-Shil is old for pregnancy. Dae-Shil gets angry at this and decides to go home.

Seung-Hye comes out and runs into Do-Jin. He came to pick Seung-Hye up so that Seung-Hye can go and give a witness testimony to the police.

Meanwhile, Soon-Im tells Dae-Shil to go home as she has not been married long. Dae-Shil angrily refuses saying that she’s heard that she’s too old so many times. But, Soon-Im tsks her as it’s only the truth.

Awkward timing occurs as Beom-Seok heads over to the police so that he can give a testimony for Se-Ryung…

As for Do-Jin, he tells Seung-Hye that they should get food and he takes her to a nearby restaurant. But, when they order, he orders another one for takeout explaining that it’s a favorite restaurant of Se-Ryung’s… Seung-Hye looks jealous so Do-Jin comforts her that Se-Ryung asked him to bring her back a bowl.

At the same time, Beom-Seok sees the restaurant and decides to stop by to buy some soup for Se-Ryung. He walks in to see Seung-Hye feeding Do-Jin because Do-Jin had not eaten more than half of his bowl.

Beom-Seok walks over to glare at Do-Jin.

MY TWO CENTS

OK, it seems that the drama in finding the slice of life pace has kind of muddled it’s main tensions. Let’s organize the main current issues as some seem forgotten:

-DJ/YH in a rivalry for SH’s love (on hold for SR)
-MJ/SI revenge issue and taking over Dong Rak Dang (forgotten?)
-MJ/DS tension due to leftover feelings for Dae-Ho (also forgotten)
-DJ returning to the hospital (being explored as a result of DJ’s guilt)
-SR/SH rivalry for Do-Jin (main issue)
-Do-Jin’s birth father? (forgotten)
-SH/SJ biological connection and the fact that SJ is not a biological heir while DJ is (forgotten)

From a quick look, it looks like there were around 7 main issues. However, all of them disappeared once SR got into the random car accident. Now that we are heading into the second half of the series, I hope that the writer returns to the tighter writing from before instead of falling off into the weeds. While SR’s accident is important, I like it better when the revenge and the loveline are both being explored. Right now, it’s more like one issue disappears and reappears at the writer’s convience.
