Summary ( 10 – Let’s do it)

Housewarming party ?

  • Cheol tells Ji a that his coworkers playfully asked that he hosted a housewarming party, while they were congratulating him for his marriage.
  • He states that since they asked jokingly, she could take her time to think on it. No pressure.
  • “Let’s do it” Ji ah exclaimed.
  • Cheol is suspicious about her hasty answer, so he asked for the reason.
  • She simply said “Just cause.”.

  • However, she is just doing it because she hates Cheol.
  • Apparently, she wants to get back at him for making fun of her “meowing”.
  • Cheol nervously tries to convince her to think more on it but she insists even further.
  • She teases that he simply doesn’t want to host his coworkers, which is why he is acting like that.
  • She was right.
  • On his way out, she waves him goodbye and he turns to smile back at her.
  • That was not the reaction mischievous Ji ah was expecting.

Two hours later

  • She is starting to regret her decision, after hours of struggling with the cooking while receiving instructions from her mom on the phone.
  • Cheol and his co-workers arrive.
  • She awkwardly greets them and welcomes them in, where she leads them to a table filled with food.

Now sis, you know you ain’t cook all dat!

  • Even Cheol is dumbfounded.
  • After the meal, Choi and Miss So go clear up the dishes. Choi asks her if she is now convinced about Cheol’s relationship.
  • Still, So had made a request to Choi, which he said he’ll do.

I wonder what the request was ?
