OMG Min is too much! She notices that Aom is at the photo shoot too. Unfortunately she didn’t prepare any outfits for her since Mike didn’t mention about her (Way to create trouble!). Aom takes it lightly and says that it’s fine. Benz intervenes. She lets Min know that the commercial has it’s own concept; Min should have called because now she basically made a trip for nothing (Once again I have to say it: I love you Benz!). Min isn’t easily discouraged. It’s tiring but Mike insists on her picking his clothes (It didn’t ask you for anything this time). Since Min is so tired, she can go home and Benz will take care of it. Benz adds that this commercial is for lovers and it’s only Mike and Aom who need to show their affection toward each other (Min I hope that you finally get the message. Please exit now.) Aom is speechless and following the scene.
Aom looks at Mike but he avoids eye contact. Aom doesn’t have the time to dwell on it too much. She is besieged by makeup artists and the hairdresser. She is not used to it and is therefore overwhelmed. Thankfully Benz stays next to her the all time.
The first interview is Aom’s (So pretty ~). She tells the reporter that she feels lucky to have married Mike and since he is a nice person it’s not uncomfortable. She embellishes the story of their first meeting: Aom was traveling to Korea when she met Mike on the plane. She was quite nervous since it was her first time flying but he was nice to her. When they arrived in Korea they kept in touch. Aom adds that Mike is very different on stage and at home. He is more easy going at home. The funniest part is when they ask Aom what’s Mike’s favorite dish. Aom answers chicken feet of course! Nobody knows but Mike loves chicken feet – boiled, stewed, etc. The last question is the most touching one. Aom says that she remembers Mike’s courage the most. He gives his all when he loves something.
Throughout Aom’s interview, Mike is on stand by and Min is helping him fix his outfit. Mike is so focused on Aom that he almost forgets that Min is there (Wallpaper Min 😀).
Before starting his interview, Mike tells Aom that she did really well. Everyone in Mike’s agency also compliments Aom. Mike’s manager teases her: Aom might as well just sign a contract with their agency now. Mike’s interview: he had to adjust himself mostly in terms of food. He adds that no one except in his family + Aom know that he likes chicken feet. Talking about their first meeting, Mike says that at first he thought she was a fangirl but he found out that she was a nice, cute, and simple girl. Aom has a ugly crying face, she nags a lot and talks back to him all the time but she gives a meaning to his life. Mike adds that he has something to look forward to other than music. Aom is the only person that can make him say sorry several times and he actually is glad to do so. His life is now more colorful and lively. Right after the interview Min takes her leave. She fakes a headache (I guess she is tired of that wallpaper life).
Benz and Aom have some girl time and Benz lets Aom know that Mike seems to really love her. She knows when he is following the script or when he is being truthful.
In the car, both point out that the other is good at following a script. Mike adds that he would have never believed that Aom could talk about him in such a way; it made him look pretty good (They need to communicate!!! Why can’t they just admit that they were being honest ughhhh).
Mike and Aom are headed back to Korea. One of the paparazzis that has been all up in their business makes sure to be at the departure and asks insensitive questions (i.e. Is this trip just a public stunt?). On the plane, Mike makes share that Aom gets orange juice instead of wine. The stewardess laughs about it and jokes about Aom sleeping in the lavatory last time (Oopsies).
In Korea, Aom gets to try a hanbok. She looks stunning and Mike is almost drooling. However Aom quickly kills the magical moment with some of her ratchet dance moves :-D.
Our couple heads to the commercial shooting location. All they need to do is to eat ice cream. Aom is enthusiastic ( I think she doesn’t quite understand what the ice cream eating entails hahaha). Aom quickly understands when she has to eat the same ice cream with Mike and remains pretty stiff. Mike is more used to this kind of stuff and acts natural (Or maybe he just enjoys the proximity with Aom lol). The struggle is too real and the director is so confused/annoyed. Mike just wants to rub the ice cream on Aom’s face. The director wonders if the couple still loves each other. Mike makes an excuse: Aom has been sick since they boarded the plane.
Mike makes sure to let Aom knows that if she wants the money she will need to show more commitment! He didn’t enjoy this at all either (I feel like you are lying Mike).
The couple is taken to Seoul Tower for a stunt. Aom is not happy at all because of the love locks. She only wants to have a lock with her boyfriend. Mike teases her: what can she do about it now? They are already married. Plus Mike can’t believe she thinks the lock nonsense thing is true. Aom doesn’t have the choice but to go anyway. If she refuses and breaks the contract, Mike and her will have to reimburse the company’s money.
The couple has to do another interview at the Seoul Tower. Mike tells the reporter that he is there only because of Aom. He knows it’s every girl’s dream . When it’s time to put their locks, Aom resists. Mike carries her and literally forces her to use her lock. He then throws their keys far far far far away (Poor Aom)! The reporters and the fans are ecstatic but Aom is even more pissed!
In the car, Aom can’t stop lamenting. Mike enjoys it even more. He gets closer to her and teases her! She is so discouraged that at night she doesn’t even argue for the mattress. She gets a blanket and a pillow and lays on the floor.
The next morning Aom is sitting outside when Mike joins her. He wishes her happy birthday! How did he know? Mike saw it on her ID when Aom gave it to him for the Guy incident. Mike gives her a present: the key from yesterday. He asked for a copy just in case. If one day they are over she can unlock it. That’s only the beginning of a wonderful day; Mike asked for today off so they could do something special for her birthday:
1 – They visit a Korean traditional house and play roles. Mike succesvily plays his Majesty and a soldier while Aom plays a servant and then a princess.
2 – Aom and Mike visit a neighborhood with a lot of wall paintings. Even the stairs have paintings. Aom decides to paint a caricature of herself while Mike goes to get popsicles.
3 – Next stop is the Trick Eye Museum and
… the Ice Museum where they play penguins and drive an “ice car”
4 – The couple also attends a musical show. Seems like one of the performers recognize them and they are invited on stage where they perform Nobody Nobody but You by Wonder Girls and Sorry Sorry by Super Junior.
The last part of the show is really sentimental and Aom has tears in her eyes. Mike reaches for her hand and holds it tightly during the rest of the performance.
5 – Aom and Mike have a barbecue/camping. During dinner, Mike asks her what she wants to do when she gets older. She wants to haunt people (😀). She will grow mangos and other fruits and when people try to steal them she will scare them. Mike thinks that the idea is hilarious. Aom asks him what he wants to do later. He doesn’t know. Aom says that they can haunt people together (O_O Aom is this an invitation to grow old together !?). Mike has two more surprises for Aom: a happy birthday cupcake and a new laptop ~.
He sings her happy birthday and lets her blow the candle on the cupcake. Aom goes in the tent to grab a camera to take a picture of Mike holding the cupcake and that’s when she finds the laptop with a card. The card says that the laptop is free of charge and not included in the debt. The rest of the night is spent enjoying wine, laughing, and watching fireworks.
The next day Aom and Mike head at the commercial’s shooting holding hands. To make Aom uncomfortable Mike tells her to forget who they are and instead be who they want to be…
I was so upset when the director cut Mike’s interview. I wanted him to keep on going lol. I felt like he was not following a script at all – more like his heart talking. Benz noticed it and so did Min! Min has known Mike since they were children so she can surely tell that he was being sincere. As we know Min, she will most likely decide to ignore his feelings for Aom and be her selfish self.
I noticed how much Mike loves to initiate physical contact with Aom. I know some of it is for show but even then it sometimes is a little excessive :-D. Also if you have ever paid attention to Mike’s ringtone when Min calls him it says: Prince pick up your phone, your princess is calling. But now he refers to Aom as his princess too. He did it when they were fooling around while visiting the traditional Korean house. It might not mean a lot but I think it shows that he thinks specially of Aom (Not like we didn’t already know that lol).
The famous ice cream scene finally aired! I heard so much about it even before seeing the episode haha. The chemistry between Aom and Mike makes this drama so much better ~ I wonder what the director is going to come up with next. There are only 6 episodes left. I hope to see more of Mike, Aom, Guy and LESS of Min :-P.
