Episode 13 of Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) Season 2 begins with Pi-Young at the golf course with Dong-Mi. Together, they run into Seo-Ban and his brother. It’s a flying visit in truth, one that eventually sees Pi-Young admit outright that she’s divorced now.
Next up, they run into Moon-Ho whom Dong-Mi believes will come running to her. However, he intentionally blanks the woman. In fact, he’s outright cold toward her as a way of showing Ye-Jung that he’s really changed.
Their day goes well until they head home and are faced with Hye-Ryung and Sa-Hyun. The former decides that she’s going to go ahead and divorce her husband. Given Song Won is due in a month or so, Hye-Ryung decides he should be with his child when she gives birth.
Well, Hye-Ryung wants to move out and suggests a villa in an upmarket location to smooth the deal. Sa-Hyun heads over to see Song Won, hugging the girl and admitting that he misses her. He admits that he’s going to get divorced and because of this, they can get together properly.
However, the trio of newly divorced ladies all meet up together for dinner. There, Pi-Young drops the bombshell that she’s now getting divorced. Si-Eun believes she should just sweep it under the rug but Pi-Young is not so sure.
Hye-Ryung helps persuade her as she admits that she’s filing for a divorce. As they sit together, Pi-Young wonders whether they should blame themselves or the men (definitely the men Pi-Young, you’re not to blame for this!)
The girls continue to drink, downing glasses of wine while talking about their unfaithful husbands. Of course, because of this they end up heading home drunk.
In the morning, Pi-Young awakens to find her daughter has gone swimming with Yu-Shin. At the same time, she receives a message from A-Mi telling her they need to talk.
A-Mi and Pi-Young sit together where the former admits that she loves her husband. Pi-Young is livid that this mistress is being so informal with her and calls the girl irresponsible and brazen.
A-Mi then drops the bombshell that Yu-Shin has the hots for Dong-Mi and how she was his first love. Eventually A-Mi does apologize and with tears streaming down her face, admits that she’ll be living in repentance for the rest of her life. She even offers to make her porridge if she’s ill.
When A-Mi eventually does head over to Yu-Shin’s with suitcases full of clothes, Dong-Mi heads in and sees. She’s outraged, especially when A-Mi reveals that she’s going to stay. She even puts on a big show and starts crying hysterically.
Eventually she rings Pi-Young, but she wipes her hands of this and tells them to deal with it themselves. this eventually leads to awkwardness ensuing as Dong-Mi takes great offence to the liberties A-Mi is taking at home. She eventually heads out to the café where she seems to notice ghost Ki-Rim just hanging about eating ghost cake with two girls. a-Mi picks up some cake and heads home herself.
The next morning, Sa-Hyun and Hye-Ryung end up eating breakfast together. As they eat, Hye-Ryung asks Sa-Hyun to invite her over when the baby is born. Hye-Ryung admits she likes the new her and that it’s her fault he got a personal trainer in the first place. Hye-Ryung doesn’t outright admit it’s her fault but you can tell that’s the route she’s going.
As the episode closes, Ga-Bin receives a bouquet of flowers but she’s pretty torn up about it.
The Episode Review
Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) returns for another good episode, one that has some unintentionally hilarious moments and a shift in family dynamics across the board. Yu-Shin is quite clearly regretting his actions (check out his expression while hugging A-Mi in the bath!) But he’s made his bed and now has to sleep in it.
There’s been little of Si-Eun but her suggesting Pi-Young get back with her husband and forgive him feels like the wrong move for her character. Thankfully Hye-Ryung comes to the rescue and breaks the news about her own divorce.
Ki-Rim’s inclusion is still utterly pointless while the random horse ride – whether intentional or not – felt like something out a comedy sketch. Especially as the fall occurred off-screen.
However, the drama and pacing is much better now and this second season is definitely stepping it up a gear. After last week’s excellent two-person showcase, this Korean soap continues to deliver the goods, albeit easing up on the quality slightly.
