Our couple is still not in good terms. Mike tries to get Aom’s attention but she is determined to ignore him. He even makes a false phone call to Roy (Probably an imaginary friend) and asks him to come over for a party. Aom serves him breakfast while he is still pretending and quickly leaves to meet Guy in a cafe.
Mike obviously can’t take it anymore. The curiosity/jealousy is too strong and he calls Guy’s office. He is able to find out where Aom and Guy are and quickly heads there.
Aom asks Guy if he wants to go grab something to eat. He politely declines; Aom seems focused today and he wants to keep it that way.
When Mike gets there, he tries to be discreet by wearing sunglasses and hiding behind a newspaper but fans recognize him.
The attention he gets from fans blow up his cover and after seeing him, Guy tries to make him jealous by getting closer to Aom.
The last straw is when Guy orders a drink and has it delivered at Mike’s table; Guy makes sure to tell the waitresses that it’s Mike the superstar and that they should definitely ask for autographs. Aom and Guy are still followed by a papparazi, who makes sure to take pictures.Mike is approached by the waitresses and also customers, which gives Guy the time to drag Aom way. Aom hasn’t realized that Mike has been spying on them.
In the car Guy asks Aom why Mike didn’t call her all day long. Aom tells him that he invited some friends over. It seemed like fun and Mike only cares about her when it comes to house-related matters (Wrong guess Aom. You would be surprised). Guy wonders why; Aom realizes that she made a mistake by telling him that and tries to make up for it. Mike and her usually talk well about house stuff otherwise they argue a lot. Guy is not quite convinced by her answer but doesn’t insist.
Mike gets some time to himself (Not like he needs more since Aom has been ignoring him lol). He sits on a swing and you can tell that he is lost in his thoughts. He gets a call from Benz. A company wants him to do some modeling and rebuild his image. The company also wants him to advertise for an ice cream with Aom since the couple loves each other so much. Benz adds that this job is serious and Aom and Mike better keep being nice to each other. If he has a problem, he will need to clear it up with their boss (I love Benz! She is so sassy)… Mike is shocked but doesn’t have the choice.
Benz proudly announces to their boss that it’s a done deal. Mister Fake (aka the one who is working with the paparazzis) pretends to be all excited about the new project (I am sure he is more excited about the chance to help screw Mike over. Ughhh)
When Mike gets back home Aom is already there. She asks him if he sent his friends back home. He doesn’t answer. Aom asks him if he had fun: no answer. She insists and he yells at her to not meddle (RUDEEEE). Aom doesn’t understand why he is mad; she just asked if he had fun. Mike asks her if them [Guy and her] disappearing was fun. Aom is still confused: what disappearance?! Mike wonders how they could be sitting so close like twins in a cafe full of people. They would have probably done more if they were somewhere else!
Aom realizes that Mike followed her! He tries to deny it by telling her that he simply guessed (Yeah right!). Aom is not tricked and starts making fun of him. Mike is even more embarrassed and keeps making up lies. He was just passing by. Seriously why would he follow her (Maybe because you are jealous)? She should stop making herself so important. Aom has been writing too many novels and it’s starting to get to her head.
The argument gets so serious that hurtful words and sentences are thrown around. Mike tells Aom that if he hadn’t hired her no one would marry her. Aom replies that he would probably never get anyone if it wasn’t for his money. Furious Mike throws a pillow at Aom. He misses her but instead spills a cup of water on her laptop. Aom is so upset that she hurries in her room where she tries to blow dry her laptop. Mike is remorseful but he doesn’t dare knocking on her door to apologize.
The next morning Mike makes breakfast as a way to ask for forgiveness but Aom is not ready to forgive him yet (Oh well at least we get to see Mike in an apron ^_^)
Mike’s manager approves the project and will immediately send it to Mike so he can take a look at it. As soon as Mike sends it back, they can start working on it! The lady in charge of the project wants to start as soon as possible since she heard that Mike’s competitor might be in a similar campaign.
Aom later comes back to clean up the mess Mike made while trying to cook. She has the idea to use sticky note to communicate or as reminders (Not too sure). Mike uses a sticky note to apologize but his note is mercilessly shredded into pieces. Mike is shocked but doesn’t give up. His next plan is to let her use his laptop in the meantime. He thinks about different ways to formulate it. His plan miserably fails. Aom tells him that she doesn’t want to get involved with him anymore. Mike insists but the problem is that he is so clumsy with his words that it only makes the situation worst (How could you say to someone that her brain is dull while trying to apologize. Mike you need to work on the way you phrase your sentences lol)
Benz visits their house and finds Aom hand washing clothes. She is surprised that Aom washes laundry herself. Aom explains that Mike doesn’t like his clothes being washed in a machine and since the fabric is so light she has to do it herself. Benz frowns: Mike is too much (I agree). Benz asks Aom if they should enjoy some papaya salad once she is done talking with Mike. Aom wants to but she has too much work. Benz understands and tells her a little bit about the project. She will have to do something with Mike but she needs to talk with Mike first.
Mike, who has been spying on Aom (I guess this is becoming a habit of his), quickly drags Benz when she comes inside the house. What was she talking about with Aom? Benz is shocked. What’s the big deal? Aom just said that he didn’t like his clothes being washed in a machine. Benz guesses right when she says that the couple had a fight. Mike admits that it’s his fault. Benz said that she was already sure of that. What has Mike done? Does he have another girl? Mike yells that she is crazy for implying such things.
Mike doesn’t know what to do to resolve the problem. Benz insists that he quickly reconciles with Aom especially since they have a big project coming up. Benz is wondering why is he so stressed out about it. Mike never made efforts to reconcile with any woman (It’s called love Benz). She encourages him to try flowers but the problem is that Mike is not sure what flowers Aom likes. He cannot admit that to Benz though so he asks her to order everything – every types of flowers. Unfortunately Mike messes it all up again. He has a hard time expressing himself again. Instead of apologizing he pretends like he bought the flowers for the house. The situation is still tense and Mike feels even more uncomfortable when Benz calls to ask him to attend a meeting with Aom.
When Aom attends her weekly meeting with Guy, the latter asks her where is her notebook. She confesses that she spilled water on it (She is covering for Mike!). It’s broken and she lost all her work. Guy doesn’t want her to be discouraged and calls his office to have a laptop delivered to the coffee shop. He wants her to focus on her work.
When she gets back home, Mike immediately wonders whose laptop it is. When she tells him that it’s Guy’s, he gets furious. She can’t use his but she doesn’t mind using other people’s. Aom repeats that she doesn’t want to get involved with him. Mike replies that Aom is his wife (Then please treat her that way…) and the fact that she accepts Guy’s is humiliating. Aom asks him if he never humiliated her. He does it all the time with Min. Does he take her for a fool? Aom wants Mike to leave her alone and to stop dragging Guy in all the madness. Guy is a nice person and the only one who truly understands her. Mike snaps hearing that and throws the new laptop on the floor (OHHHHHH noooooo you didn’t! This is her second laptop lost in less than week!!!). As usual Mike immediately regrets but Aom is furious: why does he hate her so much???!!!
While he is trying to fix the laptop, he hears Aom leaving. He takes the bike and goes after her.
Turns out that Aom had packed all her stuff. Mike uses money to threaten her; they will both lose a large sum if she leaves like this. Mike tells her about the project and gives her an estimate of the sum she could receive – 10 %. Of course Aom is interest ( I don’t blame her). Aom adds a condition: she wants the 10 % plus 50 words of apology from Mike. Mike doesn’t argue too much about it; the first time is hard but he gets used to it and keeps apologizing to her on the way back. Mike even agrees to let her ride the bike while he drags her suitcase back home.
The next day they finally meet the woman in charge of the advertisement. She tells them that some of the ad might be recorded in Thailand and the other part in Korea. She gives Aom and Mike a questionnaire to fill up. The story must be realistic and cute. At home the couple goes over the questions and answers. Some of the questions bring back unpleasant memories for both (i.e. Aom throwing up on Mike in the plane or Mike throwing Aom out of his room when she came to ask for help while they were in Korea) but also good ones (i.e. drinking together or them almost kissing when they were stuck in the blanket).
Their conversation is interrupted by Junior, the neighbor’s dog. Aom goes outside to greet him with snacks while Mike receives a call from Min. She asks Mike if he is free the next day and that’s when he tells her about the photo shoot. Min is surprised he didn’t tell her (Duhhhh maybe because he doesn’t need to!). Min insists on taking care of the clothes he will wear, Mike tries to change her mind but doesn’t get a chance… Of course Min shows on the next day…
Guy has been using work to spend time with Aom. Most of the time, he stares at her rather than doing actual work.
By now, I am also sure that Guy realizes that the relationship between Mike and Aom is unconventional. He doesn’t ask too many questions but in the car he showed that he wasn’t completely convinced by the answer Aom gave him.
Mike and Aom seem to be the only ones who haven’t seen that Mike has feelings for his wife. Last episode, Mike’s boss pointed it out, now it’s Benz’ turns to make implications. Guy is also aware of Mike’s feelings but he prefers to keep it to himself. I wonder if Guy isn’t saying anything because he wants to use it for his personal agenda or if he is waiting to have more information.
Mike has been so petty and arrogant this episode! He has a hard time expressing his feelings, which causes him to make the situation worst. Mike’s inability to understand and deal with his feelings is due to his pride and also to the fact that he doesn’t know what he is feeling. My understanding is that Mike has never really experienced such feelings so he doesn’t know how to handle it. Pride is also a main concern. Mike is full of pride to the point that he would hurt the ones around him. However this episode shows that Mike can overcome his pride and show love. Everytime he hurts Aom, he immediately regrets it. His action and his words show it. Aom is simply making Mike a better person 😀
I started watching episode 14 and I saw their trip back to Korea and the famous ice cream scene!!! I am so excited. I probably won’t be able to recap episode 14 soon because of exams but I will definitely watch it asap! So excited ^_^
