EPISODE 1 - ReCAP
It’s sunny California, and Kim Tan (and his obvious body double) is having fun surfing. We can tell his blond-haired friend Jay like two thing in life: parties and girls.
Kim Tan’s voiceover: The day I left to go study abroad, hyung’s goodbye was short, simple, and honest.
Won says to little Tan, “Studying? English? Don’t try hard. Just play. Don’t worry. Don’t think. Rich people just eat and play. They don’t dream. And don’t come back.
Tan’s voiceover: I realized at that moment, that I was here to study. I was exiled. Hyung was taking back in advance the things I will take away in the future.
Jay asks Tan, “You don’t blame them? Your brother you hates you, your mom who gave birth to you, or your father who never takes your side?
Tan answers inside his head, “I am too lazy to resent someone.” ( PICTURE 1 )
Young Do bounces a ball off a wall to bully another student. “What are you going to do, friend, during vacation. I’m going to miss you after seeing you everyday. You’re not going to miss me? You’re so cold to me.” He hit the kid with the ball this time.
Young Do smiles when the kid yells out in pain. So does his groupies. “I’m sorry. Are you hurt?”
Sidekick A says sarcastically, “Young Do, you’re aim is terrible. If someone saw, they would think we are bullying him?”
Young Do’s face immediately turns hard. “Really? Do you want to stand there then?” When the Sidekick B tries to stop Young Do, Young Do threatens him. A scurries off to the wall. “I’ll stand here. I’ll stand here for you. Throw.”
Young Do grins. “I never said I was going to throw. It should be fair among friends.” Young Do calls over the bullied student. “Friend. It’s your turn.”
“You get beat up regardless of whether you throw or not. It’s really a question of whether you will you get beat up by a strong guy or a slighter less stronger guy. But the bigger problem is that your life will always be like this. Why? Because we will grow up to be your employer. Hurry, choose.”
The bullied kid trembles in anger at Young Do’s words and throw the ball at the mirror. Young Do laughs. “So you’re the type to keep your pride even though you are poor? Just take care of your body. Health is the most important thing. I’ve got to run away, I’m so scared. See you when school starts!”
Young Do leaves, and the sidekicks beat up the poor kid. (PICTURE 2)
Young Do is checking out his newly custom order motorcycle. Dealer is telling him how great the parts are, and Young Do asks, “Are you bragging with my money?”
Eun Sang comes through the shop door to deliver a pizza. A young employer there keeps hitting on her, but Eun Sang is too busy and too poor to respond to idiocy. All she wants is the pizza money and to leave. She starts to call the police, but the guy stops her. She gets her money and goes. Young Do takes notice.
Delivering pizza is not Eun Sang’s only job. She also works at a cafe.
On her way to clean a table, she notices Chan Young studying. He has been there about thirty minutes without ordering anything, and Eun Sang tells him her boss is not selling dirt here. Meaning he’s not running a charity.
Chan Young smiles and says he will leave when Bo Na gets here. Before Eun Sang can finish complaining about how the two always have their date here, Chan Young hands her an umbrella. It’s going to rain around the time she gets off work. Eun Sang sheepishly takes the umbrella.
“If you give this to me, what about your girlfriend?”
Chan Young takes his jacket and covers his head. “My Bo Na is always a heroine inside a movie.”
Eun Sang is grossed out by the sweet. Chan Young tells her to get a boyfriend, but she reminds him that hours spent with no pay is an extravagance to her.”
Chan Young gives her a worried look. “How many part time jobs do you have?” Eun Sang answers, “What can I do? The only heaven I’m permitted to is ‘Part-time Heaven.’” (Note: Part-Time Heaven is an actual website which lists part time jobs in Korea.)
Bo Na shows up with her shrill voice, jealous that her boyfriend is looking at Eun Sang with such soft and worried eyes. Eun Sang sighs and Bo Na throws her a dirty look. Chan Young lights up to see Bo Na. He makes room for her. He’s quite the gentleman and sweety. I’m going to love him.
Bo Na reminds Eun Sang that she told her to not flirt with her boyfriend. Eun Sang retorts, “You think I’m that pretty.” Bo Na replies, “I never said you were pretty!”
Eun Sang, who is used to dealing with Bo Na, simply says, “Right. But you’re pretty. So stop bothering this poor part-timer.”
Bo Na is peeved and want to leave with Chan Young. “You’re leaving tomorrow, and I don’t want to waste time with her.” Eun Sang doesn’t know what Bo Na is saying about Chan Young leaving. “Are you going somewhere?” Chan Young answers vaguely, “I’m just going somewhere for a bit,” and Bo Na blocks him from saying more. She wants to know something about Chan Young that Eun Sang doesn’t know.
On their way out, Bo Na stops to point out that Chan Young is not wearing the colors that she told him to wear for the festival. He points to shoes he is wearing, but Bo Na points out, “That’s dark red, not red!”
Eun Sang sighs as she watches them walk off. “Those wasteful kids.” (PICTURE 3)
