49 Days – Episode 13-14 Recap and Caption Contest
Fourteen episodes have already aired in Korea, and thoroughly recapped at Dramabeans. And honestly, I'd just say: go watch it! But of course, let's say you are watching it - so what to do during those interminably long six days in between episodes? Of course - you need more drama crack! Hence - a photo recap of the last two episodes of 49 Days.
*[SPOILER ALERT]* - do not read further if you don't want to know!
Episodes 13 and 14 have proven to be quite a turning point in the series. Honestly, the drama had a strong start, and then I feel like it flagged somewhere in the middle, around episode 9 to 11. But episode 13 picks up the pace, and episode 14 has given me my first "OHMYGOD WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!" moment.
Han Kang: I'm gonna kiss you right now, whether you like it or not!
(Nah - he really doesn't - but he does hug her!)
Ji Hyun-Yi Kyung sure likes to get into people's faces - as she interrupts Scheduler's spring reverie. She's only there to bug him about whether or not Kang knows she's really Ji Hyun. Scheduler tells her to use her head... except, Ji Hyun's not the brightest bulb.
After a night of work, Yi Kyung returns home and hangs her jacket - only to brush her arm against Ji Hyun's delicate sleeves. Does she see her!? She totally does! Maybe! Can anyone ever see ghosts? Anyways - she sure does feel Ji Hyun's presence.
Desperate to figure out the contents of Min Ho's safe, Ji Hyun haunts (heh..) Min Ho's bedroom. She totally does not watch Min Ho change from his suits to his pajamas - nuh uh. Although, why would you turn away!!??
Ji Hyun gives up trying to get information from Min Ho, so she looks up Song Yi Soo. She finds Yi Kyung's old yearbook and looky-there! Song Yi Soo = Scheduler!
NO WAY! (Well, it's a "duh!" moment for us viewers, but for Scheduler, he's aghast that when he was human, his "type" was someone as disheveled and melancholy as Song Yi Kyung.)
Seo In Jung: Stay away from Kang Min Ho!
Ji Hyun-Yi Kyung: Sure - cheater, cheater, pumpkin-eater! *pfffffft*
Seo In Jung: Wow - your elementary school antics remind me so much of Ji Hyun!
Han Kang realizes that Ji Hyun really is possessing Yi Kyung's body when he sees her handwritten letters - one to her father begging him to get surgery, and the other to him, thanking him for being a friend. He takes the opportunity to convince Ji Hyun's dear father to get the surgery. Yay for Han Kang!
Because every villain must be a misunderstood fella' in some way, we see Min Ho watching his mother in the hospital (because of dementia) and yet refuses to let himself be seen by her. Do you have sympathy for him?
Scheduler's disguise when he appears in corporeal form to Yi Kyung at her coffee shop. 'Nuff said.
Because Han Kang knows of Ji Hyun's true identity as a ghost, her teardrop necklace breaks! Scheduler arrives, and intones, "It's time for you to ride the elevator, Shin Ji Hyun."
NOOOOO! THIS IS NOT THE END OF THE DRAMA!!!
Oh - wait, it's just Ji Hyun's overactive imagination. Ok - we're cool. Moving on.
Han Kang: Hands off of Ji Hyun and her family!
Min Ho: Psh - whatever man. I'm going to carry out my revenge.
Han Kang: What'd they ever do to you!?
Min Ho: Nothing.
Sufficiently warned by In Jung, who's pretty much figured out that Ji Hyun = Yi Kyung, he takes Ji Hyun-Yi Kyung out for shoe shopping. It confirms that they are indeed one and the same, because the bauble he picked up from the hotel room matches the ones on her shoe. Therefore Yi Kyung the Body was present during his clandestine rendezvous with In Jung.
So he tails her, all the way to her cafe.
Min Ho: Song Yi Kyung.
Yi Kyung: What's up, Kang Min Ho?
OMG - how'd she know who he was?! The only explanation I can come up with is that Ji Hyun's activities in her body are starting to surface up to her consciousness.
Ghost, meet Body. Body, meet Ghost.
