The Boss tells Yeo-Joo that she is going into a long hibernation soon and it is unavoidable because she is completely awakened as a gumiho and that she wants to tell her something so that she doesn’t have to live the way she did.

Yeo-Joo’s mom narrates that she never knows who is the helper and who is the hunter but even if she chooses the wrong guy and live the rest of her life as a Gumiho as long as she has Alex next to her she will never feel lonely because Alex is also half Gumiho like her. 

Picture 21

Picture 22

They complain they never call and Alex asks if they should call them then and they agree. The little girl sees the cat and looks outside at it and her eyes turn red and then there is no cat.
 

Picture 23

Well this was an expected and unexpected ending for me! I really wasn’t expecting the Boss to be Yeo-Joo’s mother. I did think that the Boss was going to be a gumihoo but I didn’t expect Yeo-Joo to be half gumiho. It wasn’t quite clear about what that meant for Yeo-Joo, I guessed based on her story if she doesn’t find the human to make her human she will stay as a gumiho. In her story Kei was killed and Alex was the one for her so that was  a bit confusing when in reality she chose Kei and not Alex. I have to say 6 years later and she has a little girl that looks about 6 years!! Her and Kei will have had to have children almost right away? Why did Jin and Ji-Soo have to go to Japan? The boss was going into hibernation I am not exactly sure what that meant?  I didn’t really understand that but does that mean the gumiho part of her was already awakened before she got older? So if her little girl is gumiho does that mean that she wasn’t turned human by Kei? because if Kei had turned her human wouldn’t her child be human as well?? I just have to say poor Alex he sure gets the raw end of the deal! I mean if he finds his true love wouldn’t he turn human as well? He does have the potential to turn human and she got be left leaving as a gumiho alone? The whole living forever part kinda reminds me of twilight! so I kinda felt like a flashback and also with the half human part of everything!! I can’t say I love the comparison! I guess I have to say it was a shocking ending and I have to hand it to the writers for doing that just for the end and not making every episode about it!! I have not enjoyed every part of this drama but I think overall it was fairly entertaining and enjoyable! I never got bored watching it and I have to say that Kei really was a star in this drama!! I found it to be a fulfilling end and I am sooo happy that the writers did not leave an open ending like the ending in Yeo-Joo’s novel! I don’t think I could fully say goodbye to the drama if they did that!! The ending was a bit confusing but overall it seems to answer the basic questions like Yeo-Joo and Kei ending up together and Alex still being able to be around them and stay friends!  One thing is that they never told us if she passed the exam I am assuming that she did because in the future she is working at the shop.  I also didn’t understand that Yeo-Joo doesn’t remember her mother because she was going after her mother and then she saves her and how does she not recognize that the gumiho is her mother? She was literally looking for her mother and then her mother saves her that is just a little too unbelievable!! I also do not understand the ending where her child looks for the cat and then her eyes glow and it shows no cat there? is she seeing an imaginary cat or did she make it leave with her powers???

I am happy that I watched this drama and I will miss it! I did not always agree with the subject matter in this drama but overall I think it was an enjoyable drama. I loved that there was a lot more skinship in this drama Kei kisses Yeo-Joo a good amount of times and they seem like more of what a realistic couple would be like! not just one kiss for the whole drama. I am glad that I was wrong about Alex becoming the final love interest and Kei did not end up getting hurt!!

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.

Picture 18

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??

Kei tells her that she is pretty good and teases about not passing because her exam is tomorrow.

Picture 18

Si-Woo’s mom picks up Si-Woo and she tries saying hello to other moms and they ignore her. She tries to talk to Hye-Kyung and grabs her arm but gets slapped saying that it was her fault for what happened to Ye-Ji.

Yeo-Joo is with Jin and she tells him about Alex meeting the boss again and she tells him not to talk about Alex in front of her because she doesn’t want to have more feelings for him because it is not fair to Kei. They see Si-Woo walking and he tells them he doesn’t want to go to school anymore and wants to go home. They take him home and their is garbage in front of her door. The neighbor lady talks to them and says that Si-Woo’s mom is acting weird lately and tells her that the other day Si-Woo didn’t come home until late because he is being bullied and got locked in the storage closet.

Picture 19

At the shop they tell this problem with the others and and they look at the website and found out that Ye-Ji’s picture on the site was changed and to make her look grown up and the site was taken down.

Picture 20

They bring Hye-Kyung to the shop and she tells them that she won’t forgive Si-Woo’s mom because of this and that the people that did it were in middle school. Alex tells her that Si-Woo is being bullied because of this and she says because they don’t like the mother they won’t like him.

Si-Woo’s mom goes and finds the boy that did it to Ye-Ji’s picture and approaches him and grabs him and she pulls out some object out either pepper spray or something that could harm him. The boss grabs it out of her hands and tells the boy to quickly leave.

Picture 21

The rest of the staff bring in Si-Woo to the hospital where his mom is sleeping. Si-Woo’s dad comes and he tells them that a few days ago she had told him that they were adjusting to the neighborhood but now he wants them to come back with him and that he doesn’t want them living in that neighborhood. Yeo-Joo was in the room with Si-Woo’s mom holding her hand and starts to cry.

Picture 22

Back at the shop Yeo-Joo is crying by herself and Alex sits down with her and he says that it wasn’t her fault and she says she knows. He asks her why she is crying and she says that Si-Woo’s moms nails were cracked and that she was having such a hard time that her nails broke and cracked. He tells her that even when they help people they don’t always get a happy ending. She says she can’t stop thinking about Si-Woo’s mom and can’t stop crying. He holds her hand and kisses her forehead and asks if she can stop thinking about her. Kei has come up the stairs and sees this happen. She leans in and gives Alex a kiss on his lips.

Picture 23

Picture 24

OH MY!!  what a crazy episode!! Oh the drama that comes with a love triangle!! I guess it is logical that Yeo-Joo first saw Alex and made him the hero in her story so on her first instincts she would end up with Alex but I don’t want Kei to get hurt because of it which it seems like that is where it is going. Kei knows that he likes her more than she does which makes it so sad when he is trying so hard and yet she is unable to give him her full attention. It almost seems like she is using him because she is too scared to go after Alex but I mean won’t Alex and her both realize they like each other after she kissed him. That was really dumb of her because she doesn’t know that Alex knows that she is a girl. In her mind she thinks Alex thinks that she kissed him as a boy!!! I am not totally against Alex for Yeo-Joo because he is so comforting and nurturing but I guess he is the nice guy and Kei is the mean one so like most dramas the nice guy doesn’t finish last??
I loved that Kei got lost again!! so cute!!

One thing that bothered me was the mother of Si-Woo should have just transferred her son to a different school! I mean I am sure there is more than 1 school around? The mother that controlled everything that was a little strange that she had that much power!! to even make the other kids bully him!! that was a bit crazy! so funny when Yeo-Joo goes to kiss Alex and Alex just stares ahead looking like a robot!! why does the person getting kissed always have to look so emotionless!! it looks very weird!!

He then grabs her shoulders and says to tell him if she doesn’t want it but later and goes in for a longer kiss.

 Picture 25

 Picture 26

OH MY!! SOOO CUTE!! I think this has been my most favorite episode so far!! Kei’s face when she comes and when he wants to kiss her! It was just adorable!! I think it has been very fulfilling to see Kei change so much because of love. It just feels so good to see that change in a person. At the beginning of the series they really have me fooled I really did not think Kei and Yeo-Joo would end up together because he was pretty mean and seemed like he would just become this mean character throughout the series! but they really made his personality more interesting to fit the lead role. I really did not expect Yeo-Joo to come around that quickly for Kei and they even kissed twice already. I have to say I enjoyed the first kiss it seemed so innocent, cute, and almost real. The old couple well they were also touching and it made me sad to see her die in the end but I really liked them as a couple and they way he wanted to care for her!
One thing that bothered me was when Alex says he thought that the woman had this problem but didn’t tell the man? why didn’t he tell him? that seems a bit odd?
Alex finding out about Yeo-Joo I would think that he would have been more bothered by this that she was lying. Kei didn’t seem bothered much either but wasn’t it supposed to be only men at the shop? are they going to bend the rules for her?? Kei was going to quit instead of her? that is just weird he is an accomplished nail artist and she hasn’t even passed the exam and she is a girl so she should probably have been the one to quit. I wonder now if the feelings have been awakened in Alex because he knows that she is a girl now? because he seemed a bit bothered that Yeo-Joo was so concerned about Kei and he made Jin tell her where he was, like he wanted to put some distance from her. I have really enjoyed this episode and can’t wait for the next one. I can’t quite picture them as a couple yet and wonder how they are going to make it work in the next one!!

Picture 19

Picture 20
Wow what an exciting ending!! I cannot wait for the next episode!! I have come to like the idea of Kei and Yeo-Joo together!! I think it would be soo good!! I have to say this was one weird episode a girl liking her best friend and then in the end they go back to being friends. It is kinda weird at the engagement party inviting the staff of her nail salon and not for example family and friends!!?? and then she runs out and what she is just going to go back to being friends and not deal with her fiancee?? I don’t know this was just a bad concept the whole way through!! not sure I really love the side stories very much!! I loved how Yeo-Joo finally admits that she has feelings for Alex and then is heartbroken when she knows she can’t really expect anything from him because of the situation. She seemed more honest and real and then Kei finally admits that he has feelings for Yeo-Joo and becomes like her more honest. So funny when Jin thought he could trick Ji-Soo by wanting to break up and then she beats up the guys which makes him love her even more!! I am soo happy that Kei finds out she is a girl and can finally understand why he is having feelings for her. I do not think that she will be able to reciprocate his feeling at first obviously because she thinks he doesn’t even like her. I have to say I love the softening of Kei and how more lovable he has gotten in the more recent episodes!!

Alex and Kei go to see Hyung-Shik and he tells them that when they were in high school together she was always depressed and bullied because of this. He figured out that she was raped by her stepfather and she was going to kill herself but he saved her and since then she has never been the same and acts like a robot. Alex figures out that he has been watching her because he has feelings for her. He tells them that he followed her to get money from her because she owed him her life. As they leave Hyung-Shik asks them to help her because if they let her go she might try to kill herself again.

The staff are gathered at the restaurant and the boss decides that Yeo-Joo should be the one to help Mi-Ae.  As they leave Yeo-Joo catches up with Kei and she tells him thank you for that day and asks if his arm is okay and he acts rough. She asks him if he thinks that she can help Mi-Ae and he tells her that there is no right answer in the world but to pick anything and make that your answer and it then becomes the answer.

Yeo-Joo goes to nail class and she asks Mi-Ae on a date. They go on a date as they are walking Yeo-Joo grabs Mi-Ae’s purse and throws it in the bushes to make her angry. Mi-Ae goes to get it and is not mad. Yeo-Joo apologizes and says that she wanted to see the real Mi-Ae and she explains that Alex thinks she is sick because she can’t feel any emotions.Picture 10

Yeo-Joo takes Mi-Ae after hours to the Shop and they are going to practice glue-on nails. Alex, Jin, and Kei are in the back watching her. Yeo-Joo takes Mi-Ae’s hand and gives her a rub and explains that the shop is Nail Shop Paris because of the myth of Paris and it is the goal to comfort and cure customer’s wounds. She says that Mi-Ae is her customer and she is going to give it a shot. She tells her that she has no mother and lived in the countryside so people bullied her and as she got older she never left home and got a job she could do alone and had only 1 friend her roommate. She thought she was happy but she wasn’t and that because of other people she felt all kinds of emotions and without these emotions she wasn’t living. She decided not to let Mi-Ae’s life to be her old life.

She tells her that she has heard her past and that she understands why she closed her mind but she want to teach how it is to have those emotions and that like now she is never going to let her go. Mi-Ae is crying and is surprised and asks what is wrong with her. Alex and the others come in and Alex tells her that her body and heart can feel even if her brain doesn’t. Mi-Ae asks Yeo-Joo for help and what she should do next and they all smile.

This was an interesting episode we were able to learn more about Yeo-Joo and who she was in her past. Ji-Soo told us that Yeo-Joo was a lot more selfish and in this episode we learn why. It is very clear that Kei has romantic feelings for Yeo-Joo but I am surprised he is not questioning or even showed as to be thinking about why Yeo-Joo had been kissing Alex. Jin and Ji-Soo are a cute couple and I think that they go well together and it is cute to see Yeo-Joo get exasperated over them. I found funny was when the Hyung-Shik was talking about Mi-Ae and he was bullying her because he was worried about her and how that was the exact situation that Kei was in with Yeo-Joo. I wanted Alex to read Kei’s fingernails to see if he could tell something!! Yeo-Joo likes Alex but he doesn’t seem to be the main focus in the story Kei gets more scenes! and Alex’s personality is not very dynamic. So I wonder if Yeo-Joo is supposed to end up with Kei?? I am not sure?

Some things that bothered me was Mi-Ae didn’t really act like a robot to me? she smiled a bit, but it did not seem like it was excessive. It just seemed like she was a little depressed maybe and smiled to cover it up? The whole story of Mi-Ae just seemed a little bizarre to me?

My guess that with Alex and the boss is that the boss is sick and since Alex has some medical knowledge he personally helps her with it.
