Aom thinks back about what happened from the moment she met Mike to their separation. When she arrives in Korea, she starts looking for Mike. She heads to the hotel and then the traditional Korean house where they stayed. She learns that he was there the day before. Mike is also revisiting the places he’s been with Aom. The two keep missing each other.
Meanwhile Min visits Guy. She brings different types of sandwiches for him to try. She is planning on opening a sandwich shop and is relying on Guy’s opinion.
Aom’s seach brings her to Namsan Tower where she finally meets Mike. Aom is taking a look at the locks when she hears Mike’s voice. Is she here to take off the locks? Aom jumps in his arms and both hug each other. She can’t hold her tears and her happiness turns into anger. Where has Mike been? Is he crazy?! How can he just disappear? Everyone is worried about him so what was he thinking? Mike says that he was thinking of her. Aom also tricks Mike by asking him for the key. Mike thinks that she is going to take off the locks but she ends up throwing the key far far far away (My heart stopped for a second. Such a tease)!
Mike and Aom end up having a second honeymoon in Korea.
Playing in water springs…
Mike tells Aom that he wished so many times that she was here with him and now she finally is. Aom sits closer to him and pinches him. It’s not a dream.
Our couple spends the night in a trailer park (More and more cuteness). When they wake up, Aom asks Mike if he really loves her. Mike introduces himself. His name is Mike (Duhhhh); he is someone who is selfish. He gets irritated easily and is stubborn. He is someone who used to love this girl for a long time to the point that he forgot the true meaning of love. He didn’t know what true love was until he met Aom. Mike doesn’t know why he acts differently when he is around Aom, why he likes to see her angry, and why he likes to see her laugh. One thing is for sure: he hates to see her cry although he already made her cry a lot. Mike adds that he also hates to see her with another GUY…
Mike then asks Aom to marry him. This time no contract or rules should be involved but only him that will always love her (This is too sweet; viewers might get cavities). Aom happily agrees not without telling Mike that they are not technically divorced (I guess she never turned in the divorce documents).
Back in Thailand, Aom and Mike start living together again. Turns out that Mike’s family is finally at peace now. Mike gets along with his father and the two seem to understand each other. Grandmother and Mike’s parents even visit the couple’s house. Aom is still learning how to cook and the whole family gets to try her cooking.
Min is still running her clothing store and she has (finally) agreed to use another male model (Not as sexy as Mike but it will still do…). Min also opened her sandwich shop. Guy is still helping her try out new items for her menu.
Pao and Oom’s baby is growing! Mike and Aom are babysitting the baby and are getting dirty looks from Pao. Aom and Mike are acting like it’s their baby (They should just have their own 😀). Pao suggests that Oom and him go to the movies since Mike and Aom are babysitting for them. Oom refuses; she has to help prepare a party for Mike and Aom’s wedding anniversary.
Even Guy and Min attend the wedding anniversary…
Gossips about Aom and Mike have now stopped. Reporters and fans have given up on digging into the fake love, fake marriage, fake divorce, etc. They are focused on the couple being back together. Mike’s new song is the confession of his feelings to Aom and has been topping all the charts. Aom is now a respected script writer. Her first script will be adapted into a movie, which will have Mike has the main actor. The couple is now living happily in their Full House…
My favorite version of Full House…The Korean version has nothing on this one. I have definitely now became a fan of Mike. I watched Rark Boon last year and loved it but Full House is at another level. I hope to see Mike and Aom act together soon. Meanwhile I’ll impatiently wait for Rark Boon with Margie.
I wasn’t sure how I felt about Aom being the one pursuing Mike all the way to Korea but it didn’t change anything. It didn’t make it look like she was desperate for Mike or anything. It’s hard to have 50/50, not to say sometimes impossible, in a relationship but I think our main couple has found the balance. They both gave their all to save the relationship. My problem with the Korean version of Full House is the fact that the main girl was the one doing all the work in the relationship. She was always the mature one and the bigger person. She knew how to give in when needed and sacrificed a lot more than the male lead. In this version, it’s not the case.
The outfits in this show made it easier to watch too. The first version of Full House came out in 2004. Rain had some hideous outfits (V-necks that came all the way down – almost to his stomach +oversized elephant pants… Ughhh) whereas this version has everyone wearing at least descent outfits. Min had some of the prettiest outfits. I learned that in real life, the actress who plays Min has her own brand so I was wondering if this is a way to promote her clothes. If it’s the case, this tactic has high chances of working!
The quality of the images and the colors used throughout the show were great too. Full House is supposed to be a romcom so I expected bright colors, which I got!
The first few episodes were slow but I am so glad I didn’t give up. Remakes tend to be such a disappointment so I didn’t expect much. The director pretty much followed the original storyline but added a few twists. Those few twists (i.e. reunion at Namsan Tower, Mike playing himself as Mike, etc.) added a totally different dimension to the story. The ending wasn’t rushed. I felt like the ending of the Korean version was kind of abrupt :-D.
I currently don’t have any new recap projects so if you have any suggestions please let me know! I hope you enjoyed the drama as much as I did ~
