She asks why he pretended and he did because Kei was as precious to him as her. He apologizes for being cranky because he couldn’t control his feelings and that he is going to let it free and tells her that he likes her.
That was a crazy episode!! Alex and Kei are going to fight over Yeo-Joo!! I am very curious to see who she picks? I wonder if she is going to be with Alex and she might like it but then realize something is missing and goes back to Kei because there is a spark there?? I really do not know how it is going to end up!! In this episode they made Kei slightly needy with putting a ring on her finger so I am happy that he decided to make it a fair fight and not get the girl because Alex wasn’t trying! What is going on with Ji-Soo I am wondering if the intern is going to become a stalker in the next episode because he asked for her address from the nurse. Also Ji-Soo was ready to leave the hospital and I think that the intern might have confessed his love and she doesn’t know what to do. One thing that made me curious was that the boss said that Alex was in love with someone else? how did she know? it would be weird if Alex would tell her because she might guess it was Yeo-Joo and he wouldn’t want her to know because then she would fire Yeo-Joo. I have had this feeling that the Boss knew from the beginning that Yeo-Joo was a girl and maybe let her stay because she knew that Yeo-Joo needed this job to become a better person. They have not really gone any further with the gumiho story and the Boss! I wonder if she is really a gumiho??
