Junggugeo Kaenada 중국어 캐나다: Now, we have entered into an alternate reality when Eun Chan and Han Gyul bicker and I don’t care.
Only 만: Eun Chan’s need to be financially independent is reasonable, but the couple’s inability to communicate about it does seem overblown.
Junggugeo Kaenada: Lucky for the preoccupied couple, everyone else is helping convince Han Gyul’s grandmother that Eun Chan is a great catch. So, it looks like that problem will be solved without their interference, especially if Grandma dies.
Only: Grandma’s collapse at the end did make the couple’s spat look petty in comparison. Han Gyul is trying to bully his way into matrimony while Eun Chan is repeatedly departing in a huff instead of making a compromise.
Junggugeo Kaenada: I don’t have much more to say about this episode except that it is probably my least favourite of the series.
Only: It feels unnecessary, but having watched the series before, we can console ourselves with the payoff of episode 16.
