Mike and Aom kiss while eating the ice cream (I expected a tease but not at all!)!. The director of the commercial is ecstatic and speechless considering that the last attempt was a total failure. They also kiss more than once ~
The rest of their trip goes peacefully and Aom and Mike both have a lot of fun. They make chocolate, kimchi, and go to an ice skating ring.
On the plane back to Korea, Aom falls asleep; she grabs Mike’s hand and lean on his shoulder. Mike reaches out and gently strokes her face (Cuteness overload).
Back in Thailand, Mike gets more involved when it comes to housework and makes sure to help Aom.
Mike and Aom exercise together and this is what happens (Some things need no recap, screenshots are best 😀)
Aom and Mike start eating vanilla-strawberry ice cream (AGAIN hahahhaaa). Our couple keeps bickering. Aom wants to only eat the strawberries but to bother her Mike starts eating the strawberries too. Mike tells her that he is starting work the next day. Aom wonders why he is saying it like he is going far away. Mike answers that he is feeling so relaxed lately that’s probably why. It’s hard to explain the feeling (No need to explain it; we clearly see it on our screens lol). Aom says that he looks cute when he is relaxed. No complaining, no fussing, no pouting, etc. Mike tells her to stop; it’s becoming a complaint rather than a compliment.
Aom asks for some of her salary; she wants to help Oom. She promises to quickly repay her debt. There might be a problem with the baby. Oom is the only person she has left.Mike asks her what will happen once she pays him back: will she leave? Does he want her to stay then? Mike lies that he is worried about who will be doing housework. Aom tells him to stop; she laughs and says that she understand her status as a housemaid. Mike adds that she is a cute maid though. He also forces Aom to feed him and then feeds her too.
Mike asks Aom if she wants to have dinner the next day. Aom has to meet Oom first but she will call him later so they can schedule it. When he leaves, Aom tries to get a hold of herself. She can’t fall for Mike (It’s too late)!
Aom meets Oom and give her the money. Oom refuses at first but then ends up taking it. The only thing Aom wants to know is that the baby is safe. Oom needs to keep her posted. While leaving, Aom gets a call from Mike. He lets her pick the restaurant.Their plans go down the drain thanks to Min. She calls Mike and tells him that he has to pay dinner since he didn’t bring her any present from Korea. She will wait for him at her shop. Mike tries to protest but she quickly hangs up.Mike’s phone dies so he is unable to contact Aom. While she is patiently waiting for hours, Mike and Min are having dinner at a fancy restaurant. Mike is not enjoying the dinner and Min can feel that he is in a hurry to head back home. Is he afraid that his housekeeper would be mad (OMG she didn’t say that!!!)? Min wanted them to have drinks after. She has been so lonely since Mike has been absent for several days.Mike and Min end up in a bar where they meet other friends. Aom is still waiting.
When Mike drops Min, she asks him about his trip in Korea. Mike has been distant and absent minded lately. She realizes it and doesn’t accept it. Min then gives him a seductive kiss on the cheek (@#!&%#@#!!!).
Mike gets back home and knocks on Aom’s door. She refuses to open the door. He tries several times but gives up. The next day Aom keeps avoiding him.
Oom finds out that Pao used the baby’s check up money to buy stocks (Some people never learn). Pao invested all of the money because investors assured him that he would make profits. Oom is furious and slaps him. Oom even wonders if he has someone else. Why does he keep wasting their money if he doesn’t have another girl? Pao says that he just wants them to be rich faster. Oom suggests that they break up if he is not ready to be responsible.
Oom meets with Aom. The two have a heart to heart. Aom wonders why Oom is with Pao if he is so irresponsible. Also when did she realize that she loved Pao? Oom sees where Aom is coming from and immediately asks her if she likes Mike. Aom admits it but knows that it’s impossible between Mike and her. When leaving Oom’s place, Aom gets a call from Mike’s grandmother. Why hasn’t Aom visited lately? Does Aom think that she is a good cook now? Aom says that she has been really busy lately. Is Grandma bored? Aom will come get her right away to do something fun. Aom makes sure to wear her ring before meeting Grandma. Mike’s mother points out that Grandma seems to like Aom a lot. Grandma replies that it’s because Aom is pitiful; she has no family (Like her grandson she is in denial lol).
Aom takes Grandma ballroom dancing. Grandma is excited and seems to be having a lot of fun.
Mike meets them there and drags Aom for a dance. He found out thanks to his mother. Aom tries to break free but he wouldn’t let her go. She also tells him that he should bring his grandmother here from time to time. Grandmother seems so happy. Mike wonders if Aom is still mad at him. He apologizes and of course it doesn’t take long for Aom to melt. The more Aom tells Mike to let her go, the tighter he holds her in his arms.
Mike and Aom are having dinner with Mike’s mother and grandmother. When Mike’s father gets back from work, he tries to avoid them. Aom invites him to have dinner with them. The all family is reunited and we see Aom bringing father and son closer. She tells Mike to serve his father and the latter starts talking about work and discussing his day. Everyone is laughing and Mike’s grandmother is especially happy to have the family complete.
Their dinner is interrupted when Mike gets a phone call; he leaves right away…
I am sad that Mike didn’t defend Aom at all when Min referred to her as a housekeeper. I don’t care what Min thinks but for Mike not to stand up for Aom was painful to watch. Also why couldn’t he contact Aom and cancel their plans??!! OK his phone died but I am sure he could have contacted her. Seriously this is the 21st century and there is Internet. Plus he is a super star who has an assistant – Benz. The director might be trying to make Mike look like a fool, which he totally is right now.
Min is stepping up her game. She clearly establishes that she is interested in Mike. She had never clearly stated it and since I already saw some of episode 16, I can tell you that she is going hard. My heart is breaking for Aom because she clearly doesn’t deserve any of this. I don’t like the fact that she is caught in this triangle, which shouldn’t even exist.
Aom is clearly growing on Mike’s family members especially the grandmother. We knew that Mike’s parents already liked her from the start. Mike better realize that Aom is not only making him a better person but she is also helping mend his family relation.
Also do Aom and Mike realize that they have been breaking the no-skinship and no falling in love rules of their contract… They both act like a real couple without even realizing it.
On a side note, no matter how much I hate Min I have to admit that her outfit in this episode was top. The color and the pattern of her dress were so pretty.
