Still Loving You – E77

Another episode of calm bought by Eunsoo giving up her weekend to serve her in-laws.

SHINE BRIGHTLY EUNSOO EPISODE 77 RECAP

Without asking what the dispute is about, Mr. Yoon declares that Eunsoo has to always be respectful to Bitna since Bitna is above Eunsoo in the family hierarchy. Because, clearly, right and wrong does not matter. What matters is this socially constructed hierarchy.

Mr. Yoon leaves after Eunsoo apologizes to Bitna.

Bitna smirks and skips up to the room where she whines to Soohyun for being so busy all the time. He sighs that he’s trying his best. Bitna asks sarcastically what it would have been like had he not tried. Well, you forced him to marry you even though he was already engaged…

Soohyun leaves and Bitna goes to work only to call Grandma Choi and complain.

The next scene, sad music turns on in the background. Eunsoo calls her mom and lies that she thinks she married well and she’s so happy. Yeonmi tears up saying that she’s happy as long as Eunsoo is happy.

On the side, Hyunshik brings sandwiches to Soomin’s office. Except, she’s not there. So, Hyunshik offers to share with the nurse. Over sandwiches, Hyunshik wonders at how he and Soomin have opposite tastes as she gave him her meat the other day. The nurse looks up weirdly. He notes that Soomin loves that part of the chicken…

Meanwhile, Soonjung goes to work and gets flagged down by Yeonmi. The dry cleaning is done! Even though Yeonmi is doing it for free, Soonjung sighs that a coffee stain has not been taken out. Yeonmi agrees to do it again. Soonjung smiles and agrees to be nice to Eunsoo.

Later that evening, Bitna prepares soup for dinner as only Sunyoung, Eunsoo and Bitna are eating dinner at home. Bitna tries the soul and sighs that it’s so bland. She ends up using ramen soup…Eunsoo stops by when Bitna does and catches her in the act. However, she smiles and does not tell Sunyoung.

At the same time, Sooho and Mr. Yoon close up. Half of the proceeds were from Sooho’s Well-Being Soup. Sooho preens saying that he thinks creating the soup was the second best thing that he did in his life after marrying Eunsoo. Mr. Yoon smiles and tells Sooho to keep it up now that he’s starting his own family.

The next morning, Sunyoung walks into the living room where Mr. Yoon is reading. She asks if he wants water and he gets up himself. She’s so shocked that he would get his own water.

Mr. Yoon smiles that it’s all because of Eunsoo. She asked him to stop ordering Sunyoung around. Sunyoung sniffs that she’s being saying the same thing for over thirty years but he never changed. Now, he’s changing just because their daughter-in-law said one thing.

The scene changes to show Soohyun and Bitna in their room. Soohyun agrees to go to the spa with her that day as she’s been whining. He’s even going to tell their parents that they will spend the night.

Then it’s time for breakfast. The family eats without Soonjung who is sleeping in. Sunyoung muses that it’s because spring is finally here. Soonjung probably wants to wear a dress and go on a date. Soomin laughs and asks if that’s not what Sunyoung wants.

Cue Sunyoung sighing that it’s been forever since she’s been on a date. Eunsoo pipes up and tells Sunyoung to rest with Mr. Yoon since she can help out at the restaurant with Sooho.

Mr. Yoon begins to say that Eunsoo should be tired as well from working. But, Sunyoung does not give it a second thought. Since Sunyoung accepts, Mr. Yoon does not bother rejecting.

Meanwhile, Bitna elbows Soohyun as he needs to his parents that they won’t be coming home that night. Soohyun just awkwardly elbows her back feeling embarrassed that his brother’s wife is more “dutiful”.

Sooho notices all the elbowing and asks if the couple is worried that Eunsoo will be overwhelmed with the extra work and thinking about helping.

Bitna decides to get ahead of t and calls out to the parents. But, Bitna is unable to say that they are going to the spa as Soohyun interrupts and announces that they have spa tickets so the parents should go to the spa.

Sunyoung quickly agrees. Mr. Yoon wonders how they can leave all the work to Eunsoo. Right on cue, Soohyun announces that he and Bitna can help out as well.

Mr. Yoon announces that he’s so happy he raised his kids since he can rest like this with their help.

Bitna complains the whole time she’s helping while Eunsoo gives it her all with a smile. Eunsoo keeps asking the customers how they like the Well Being Bean Paste Soup and looks lovingly at Sooho when each customer reacts positively.

Later that night, the two men wait for Yeonmi who walks briskly…to meet with the Team Leader. They go in to the concert together.

At the same time, Jaewoo sits on the side next to the stage of a karaoke restaurant. All of the other singers go first as Jaewoo only checks his watch…It’s already over 9:30p.m. and he’s up.

Jaewoo begins singing. It’s a ballad about how the lover seems so sad. Jaewoo’s voice rings out singing his heart out that he knows…she does not need to be sorry as it’s not her fault. He wants her to go.

Unknown to Jaewoo, Yeonmi arrived to listen and watch from the entrance. She leaves when he finishes and he does not see her.

Meanwhile, the second generation cleans up while Bitna rests. Eunsoo even offers to let Soohyun and Bitna leave first. Bitna agrees but Soohyun rejects their offer and stays to help.

Yeonmi arrives at home to fall against the gate. She stares up at the sky trying not to cry.

The next day, Eunho wakes up with his muscle issues. He cannot move his neck without his shoulder and neck hurting. Grandma Kim takes him to Jaewoo who treats Eunho sincerely. Then, he tells Grandma Kim that he’s leaving his practice to take up a job in the countryside. He also promises to give her a referral.

Grandma Kim is saddened to hear that the doctor she liked a lot is leaving. She goes to Yeonmi to tell her about Eunho and the doctor. When Yeonmi hears that the doctor is leaving, she drops her cup.

MY TWO CENTS

Somehow the focus shifted and it’s like the drama decided to focus more on Yeonmi/Jaewoo. I support it since the Eunsoo plot went haywire with the character turning a 180 against what she stood for in the beginning. Now, it’s as if Eunsoo’s dream had to get married and be a housewife…The job as a teacher and joining Yoon Ga Foods were just hobbies until she got married.

I hope that once the Yeonmi/Jaewoo line is tied up, they rehabilitate Eunsoo’s character. Currently, she’s not a good role model for young girls at all. I really hope I don’t regret watching and following this drama.

As for the Yeonmi/Jaewoo loveline, I don’t know how they will get to happiness within 25 episodes that they have to share with the Eunsoo plot line. Somewhere along the line, Jaewoo has to find out about the connection between Eunsoo and Bitna. There may be some noble idiocy thrown in. Then after Jaewoo and Yeonmi get over it, we need to see how Grandma Choi and Bitna react. Considering their track records, they won’t be reasonable and it would take a couple of episodes or some magical drama plot device to keep them from ruining Jaewoo’s happiness.

So, Shine Brightly Eunsoo, get to it! You are on the clock!
