Maybe Ilhan and Seol-Chil will get married now? . . . . Anna
I don't think that would be possible in Korean culture/society. Look at the problems in Pure 19 -- Gukwah was not even MARRIED to the uncle when he died but the nephew was not allowed to have feeings for Gukwah. So a living divorced spouse seems to me to be an insurmountable impediment to a marriage. Anyone know enough about Korean customs/culture to explain?? Thanks!

• Mi-chil goes to a small hospital looking for a job, and again runs into Kong-ju whose personality is identical to that of Mi-chil’s. Apparently, they’re going to work together for the same doctor and also live together at the hospital dorm.

• Doek-chil and Sun-taek continues to be uncomfortable with each other. Doek-chil meets with her ex-husband, Soo-han, who tells her that he’s getting remarried. Doek-chil is surprised by the news but she’s more surprised to hear him say that he thought they would eventually return to each other after some time living apart. He’s marrying a divorcée and says he was only looking for someone who can promise him to take good care of the children.
• Seor-chil tells her mother that she no longer loves Ha-num and she also informs her about the transfer to Iraq. The mother, of course, is not happy.

• Ha-num’s mother and Seor-chil’s birthmother meet at a restaurant. Guess what! The women know each other…

• Mi-chil works diligently at the hospital but she’s too busy with work to properly take care of herself. She seemed to have matured overnight.
• Il-han goes out drinking with a coworker as a favor to meet women. After many drinks, Il-han tells off the ladies about how beautiful women have no brains and they’re nothing but gold diggers. He gets a nice slap from one of the women. Il-han then gets into a fight with a guy at the next table when the guy tells his fiancé to break off their engagement—the couples’ fight reminds him of his situation with Mi-chil. He falls to the floor in a mess and looks very sad and pitiful…
Ilhan should have never married Mi Chil. To me Mi Chil is just a b****. I hate the way she laughs. She dresses too sexy. She treates Seol Chil awful by telling HER that Seol Chil needs to ask HER for permission to talk to Ilhan. What a crazy b****. Ilhan should just remain friends with these 2 women, and not marry either one actually.
for mikie, I think ur confused the military "sister" is the daughter of the dead soldier, and the guy that adopted her, her " father" , was his best friend and accidentally killed him. the "father" then took her in as his own to make up for his sin, and her real father made the adopted father promise to marry her to another one of their friends son because they were close friends. Also when the military "sister" finds out she is adopeted she tells her " mother" that she wants to find her birth mother, iam guessing she's still alive. ;) Enjoy!
