Mini Recap Episode 20 Color of Woman
Maybe not one of the worst finale’s ever, but it’s definitely made the list!
Okay, I only saw the relevant scenes (Read: Chanjin’s scenes) and fast forwarded through the rest. Here goes:
Jinju breaks up with Junsu and Junsu asks her to give him another chance, he’ll try his best. She tells him he can’t change how he feels. She comes home and tells Sora she dumped Junsu. Alone, she reminisces over the past.
At work the next day, Sora runs into Chanjin. To make small talk, she asks him if he heard about the engagement. He asks her if she’s happy now that it’s off and she tells him no. When she calls out his name, he tells her he doesn’t want to hear anything related to the company matter and she tells him she’s sorry for her words last night, they were too harsh (You bet they were!). She knows very well what kind of person he is and is really sorry for her words. She was only worried he might have an ulterior motive and do something wrong.
Chanjin: “If you believe in me, believe in me to the end! Just like no matter what, I believe in you.”
When he’s about to get off, Sora tells him.
“You’re also number one. In my heart, you’re also number one.”
The engagement is off and everyone is speculating about it. Junsu asks Sora how Jinju is and she tells him Jinju’s pretending to be alright. She asks him if he’s really going to give up on the engagement and he tells her he can’t lie to himself anymore or cause Jinju any more hurt either.
Director Song discovers the secretaries’ relationship and fires her secretary. Jinju holds a press conference. Director Song approaches Chanjin and reminds him they are on the same team and they should do their work now. Chanjin smiles and tells her to do as she wants, as if agreeing with her. Jinju resigns and Junsu doesn’t accept it, giving her a contract as a present. She’s set to be a Cinderella without a prince charming. Sora’s happy for her! The secretaries fret over their fate. Even the manager seems tired of acting as Director Song’s spy.
Chanjin’s going out. Junsu tells him he has no interest in the company and Chanjin can have it all and asks him to take it slowly since the Chairman isn’t well yet; he’ll be sad, can’t Chanjin give up? Chanjin tells him he’s come this far and can’t stop just yet. Junsu tells him to be careful, Director Song is a scary (translate: dangerous) person and not to take the same stance as her.
Chanjin: “Do you not believe in me?”
Junsu: “No. I believe in you.”
Time for the meeting. Chanjin starts with the candidacies for the Presidential seat and starts with Director Song’s name, listing off her credentials and services to the company over the years. Director Song’s smile widens with each word. However, Chanjin instead of recommending her, Chanjin tells the whole board, she is responsible for all the trouble in the company recently. Going on, he explains the Cinderella story and the Special Line debacle, telling everyone she’s the one who leaked the information. Director Song protests, telling everyone Sora was responsible, she has evidence. Chanjin puts up the photo she has as evidence and tears it to shreds. Seeing the picture and hearing Chanjin, Sora is reminded of Chanjin’s words from the night before.
Chanjin: “I can’t give it up. I have something I want to protect.”
She realizes Chanjin had meant her. Adding fuel to the fire, Chanjin plays a recording of Director Song asking Sora’s manager to steal the information from Sora’s laptop. That’s the end for her. As the next President, Chanjin recommends Junsu and everyone applauds and agrees.
After the meeting, everything becomes all well. Junsu asks Chanjin why he never said anything and the latter tells him it was to take on Director Song. Junsu guesses he did everything for Sora but Chanjin tells him it was for everyone. The secretary and Sora’s manager are forgiven.
Junsu tells him he’s not suited for the seat but Chanjin tells him he’s the Chairman’s son, no one’s more suited to it. Junsu tries to argue and Chanjin reminds him he said he’ll follow Chanjin so he has to do it!
Sora and Jinju sit down for lunch. Jinju is telling Sora to call Chanjin; she hasn’t heard from him for days when Junsu calls Sora and tells her.
Junsu: “Chanjin is leaving. Hold onto him (Stop him).”
She heads to the train station and Chanjin is there, all ready to leave. She tries to dissuade him but he tells her he’s tired now and wants to rest a while, even though it’s a pity since he’s got a lot of dates left with her. Even his return isn’t definite. He tells her to live well and turns away when the phone rings.
They arrive at the hospital and Junsu tells him the Chairman collapsed again due to stress from a lot of work. He asks Junsu to stay back until the Chairman gets better. Chanjin tells him he’ll stay. When Sora and Junsu exit, they make triumphant faces. Turns out, she’d told the Chairman it was him who could hold Chanjin back, not her since he is the one Chanjin regards almost as his father.
Flashback: Yesterday, when Chanjin had learned about the accident, he’d approached Junsu who’d told him his father and Chanjin’s mother were in a relationship and Chanjin’s mother was the one woman his father had truly loved in his life. They never told Chanjin the truth because the Chairman was too guilty about the accident and didn’t want Chanjin to get hurt. Back to now, the chairman wakes up and asks Chanjin to call him father from now on.
Sora meets Junsu, tells him she had originally decided to start over with him when he’d instead told her he was getting engaged to Jinju. She hadn’t broken up with him because of the Chairman or Chanjin; she wasn’t sure of Junsu’s love for her. Junsu tells her he probably wasn’t able to show it to her because he felt about taking her away from Chanjin (Duh!) Now, she asks him to let her go, she wants to start her own life and do things the way she wants. Unknowingly and unconsciously, she’s always relied on him or Chanjin. Now she wants to do things for herself.
Much later, Jinju’s all successful, Chanjin and Junsu visit her, everyone’s all happy happy! Director Song comes to beg them to save the company she’s been working at and Junsu agrees, asking her to return to the company; she won’t be at the same position, but the company needs her. (Uh huh!)
Jinju goes to meet Sora. She and Chanjin try to set Junsu back together. Junsu and Sora meet but she doesn’t want to start again.
Sora: “It’s not even once, we broke up twice. Junsu and I, we have no fate together.”
She starts seeing the teddy bear everywhere she goes. She goes to buy coffee when the store manager and his lackey suddenly appear and tell her there’s no such thing as a perfect love in the world; she’ll regret it if she goes now. (She’s thinking about going somewhere or something; I haven’t seen the episode in detail so can’t say) They’re off to help people where they are needed; their work here is done.
She sees the back of the necklace on the teddy and it has Junsu’s words that he’ll wait for her at the place they started over until she comes. She goes and there he is, all smiles with another teddy.
He proposes: “Let’s get married, Byun Sora. Because you’re my destiny.”
Happy ending! (Or not!)
Dum dum dum! What a drama! The end!
Not much comments needed. Everyone got a forced happy ending, even Director Song had a complete change of character by the end and came back sobbing and of course, everyone turned perfect and happy happy! I mean, seriously? Is that what you guys could do?! That’s the endings I hate most! So unbelievable!
Yes, Sora Junsu got together. Funny how I can’t even feel for them or believe they were/are so in love anymore.
Chanjin ends up alone. As does Jinju (She deserved it, he didn’t!)
Is it just me, or somehow Junsu and Sora’s conflicts that started it all-are all gone; like vaporized? Junsu was ever so jealous of Chanjin being with her but now, he’s all “Oh no, your besties! Besties forever!” Sora believes in Junsu’s love and there’s no more him staring at Jinju with a dreamy look to make her feel insecure!
Thank God it’s over! 😀
KL, In the end, the story definitely was a pile of dog poo! 😛
