Summary ( 18 – Blazing chicken feet.)
Don’t you remember me ?
- Mr Choi ( Sang-woo ) also remembers who she is and shouts in excitement, telling her who he is.
- Although she recognizes him, she seems to be embarrassed about something and thus tells him that he might have been mistaken.
- He caught on her embarrassment and insists that they know each other by even reminding that he is the younger brother of someone she knows.
- Furthermore that she gave him an autograph for a novel she wrote called “blazing chicken feet”.
- She couldn’t pretend any longer.
Suddenly became a writer.
- Ji Ah and Yeon Joo, Choi’s second sister, are friends who shared a hobby of reading novels in a reading room.
- Ji Ah complained about how boring the novels have become and was interested in what Choi’s sister was writing.
- “This looks so goood!” she exclaimed, being dramatic after reading her friend’s novel.
- At that point, she found writing novels more interesting than reading them.
- Thus she decided to give a go.
- 3 months later, she gets awards as an author.
So why do you really need my help ?
- Sang-woo and Ji Ah sit at a restaurant and clear things up.
- He then starts to talk about his problem mit Miss Soo.
- After hearing his side, Ji Ah asks him bluntly:
- “Do you need someone to talk to? or do you want some to simply push ( help you decide *)”
- Hearing this, he became flustered.
- She adds that he wouldn’t need this consultation, if the girl in question wasn’t someone he was interested in.
Okay I get.
- After the sincere talk, they parted ways.
- On his way back home, he realises that calling her would be the next best move.
- “Can I come over ?”.
