My Secret Romance
Episode 2: You've Deeply Insulted Me

      The episode starts with the same scene from the end of episode 1, with Jin Wook and Yoo Mi letting themselves get carried away by their vulnerabilities and loneliness. When morning comes, Yoo Mi wakes up first and is startled with her actions, but then panics when she notices the group of old ladies coming to the beach. In a rush, she makes a run for her dignity and that's the end of their one night romance.

But life goes on and our leads follow their paths. Jin Wook has taken job seriously, even becoming the face for the male underwear line, and showing outstanding results. Meanwhile, Yoo Mi has finally found a job as nutritionist (yes, that's her job in case you were wondering), at no other place but Daebok Group. And this is how fate makes our leads paths cross again, although at first they don't realise.

On Yoo Mi's first day, she walks a few steps ahead, she even takes the front elevator while Jin Wook and I take the other, and it's when the doors are closing than Jin Wook seems to notice her, but in his overworked state he is not sure whether it was his imagination or not.

Jin Wook has made a name for himself due to his character, he uses a chronometer for the meetings, asking more and more from his employees, with screams and outbursts, demanding from everyone to keep up with what he's asking of them. The employees call the chronometer the Time-Bomb.

Yoo Mi joins her team, four people who are lead by an old lady who looks everything but friendly and who seems is set to give the young girl a hard time. A young, stilish and sexy woman gives Yoo Mi the tour and explains the ropes for the new member, also spreading the rumours about their director Cha Jin Wook.

Jin Wook does a great work, the sales have increased and his father now has a good opinion of him. I still have to look after him, but he has stopped acting like a spoiled kid. The chairman wants him to marry but marriage is not in Jin Wook's plans just yet, which makes his father wonder if he got his heart broken or something similar. Suspiciously, Jin Wook denies all accusations.

In his drive to success, Jin Wook overworks himself, skipping meals that cause him to collapse when he's having an outburst in a meeting, ending up in the hospital. As I said, I still have to take care of him and this time I have to threaten him to look after his health unless he wants me to quit. The bargain for my stay is eating three meals a day and I'll make sure to get him a nutritionist for the task.

To save resources and be practical, I talk to our new nutritionist Lee Yoo Mi to give her the option to do this. Unknowingly, she agrees, displeasing her coworkers.

You might as well say one of my tasks is matchmaker.

Yoo Mi is now in the lion's den. Firstly, although Yoo Mi is a nutritionist, her cooking skills are pitiful and in occasions threatening. She delivers food that looks like anything but a healthy food, and Jin Wook refuses to eat it. She continues trying, but every try leads to another failure. She rants to her friend, a successful and handsome young man, owner of a cafe and writer, Jung Hyun Tae. They seem really close and comfortable with each other, bickering and fighting like siblings.

Yoo Mi sees one day how one of Jin Wook's receptionists throws away the untouched food she made for him. Offended, Yoo Mi goes to see him but he's not around, he's just on his way and he stops before she can see him, realising that it's true, she's there. He confirms it later and avoids her, telling her to only contact him through text messages.

Through flashbacks, Jin Wook remembers waking up alone in the car, with the old ladies laughing at him because the girl he spent the night with ran away. The ladies assume it was his disappointing performance and the young man cries in humiliation. Nowadays, he resents Lee Yoo Mi for she has deeply humiliated him and now he's set on revenge.

Now he doesn't just refuse to eat her meals, he also nitpicks and bullies her, even coming up with excuses that are nothing but a lie, driving Yoo Mi to a mental breakdown. As she rants to her friend Hyun Tae, she accidentally sends her honest thoughts about their director to the very man.

In horror, Yoo Mi runs not to stop the text message, but to apologise. At first she's stopped from coming in the office, but Jin Wook allows it. She apologises profusely while staring at his back, until he turns around and she can see with her own eyes how he is the man she slept with and from whom she ran away.

Oh, the horror.

The epilogue shows how Jin Wook became the model for the male underwear line, our attempts to identify the type of food Yoo Mi sent and Jin Wook sulking for his hurt pride.

Episode 3 comes out tonight and I'll meet you again for that recap.

Kind regards,
Secretary Jang.
