Caught with a reserve that isn’t meant to be his, Seung-cheon speedily fibs that he transpired to locate it decades in the past and took it since he liked Joo-hee. Just before Joo-hee can inquire any much more concerns, Seung-cheon receives a textual content from Yeo-jin that has him dashing off — she’s just sent pictures of Tae-yong about to take in with the golden spoon.

Properly, it turns out Seung-cheon doesn’t need to have to be concerned, mainly because Tae-yong has not taken a one bite. Yeo-jin’s consistent scheming would make him reduce his appetite, and he ends up slamming his spoon down and strolling off.

“The

Back at property, Joo-hee connects the dots — Seung-cheon’s smiley deal with sketches align with Joon-tae’s nickname of “Mr. Smile.” Because she has certainly no concern, she heads out to meet up with Joon-tae sporting a smiley experience T-shirt, inquiring him pointed questions about his time in the States.

Pointless to say, Joon-tae’s quick fuse is lit, and he grabs Joo-hee’s hair menacingly. Out of nowhere, Seung-cheon arrives to her rescue, possessing retained tabs on Joon-tae. But it is Joo-hee’s taser that does the trick, and the pair make a hasty escape although Joon-tae’s reeling from getting zapped.

If there’s a single great thing about that reckless, unsafe working experience, it is that it at last gets our sales opportunities to set their heads with each other. Seung-cheon, Tae-yong, and Joo-hee convene at the latter’s home, piecing the facts jointly and delegating the function. Seung-cheon tracks down Joon-tae’s burner phone supplier, and Joo-hee retrieves the circumstance information of incidents in the vicinity of her house, on Tae-yong’s recommendation.

Of class, Joon-tae is not the type to lie very low. He someway manages to get close to Joo-hee’s doorway lock and sneak into her condominium, discovering her proof box sitting down out in the open up. Recognizing how considerably along her investigation has gotten, he rashly decides to get issues into his personal fingers, but Seung-cheon’s timely arrival stops him from bashing Joo-hee’s head in with a brick.

“The

The following early morning, Joo-hee and Tae-yong scour by black box footage, and it isn’t long just before they discover Joon-tae captured outside the Na home. Include that to Seung-cheon’s affirmation that Joon-tae was in truth the past particular person who known as CEO Na, by his burner cell phone, and it looks we have identified our killer.

Ahead of they can do anything about it, although, a information broadcast steals their thunder. Joon-tae has just turned himself in for the murder of CEO Na, and we see that just several hours just before, CEO Hwang experienced compensated him a take a look at, manila envelope in hand.

Joon-tae’s clarification of quickly sensation a wave of regret does not audio quite believable, but our major trio simply accepts this conveniently anticlimactic resolution to their investigation. Of training course, CEO Hwang doesn’t do anything at all unless of course he has some thing to gain, which will make me suspect he has a more substantial stake in this murder situation than it appears.

Pursuing the adage of attracting extra flies with honey, CEO Hwang decides that he’ll put the Lee loved ones in their position by exhibiting the ability of prosperity. Not only does he lavish them with extravagant gifts, but he also places normal orders for their aspect dishes. Then he purposely leaves costly artwork provides out in whole view, as if to examination Dad. Ugh, I really don’t like where by this is heading.

Considering the fact that the murder investigation is no for a longer time on everyone’s priority checklist, Tae-yong’s mind turns again to Seung-cheon’s notebook. He realizes that the golden spoon swap would describe all the anomalies, like him inexplicably being aware of how to perform the piano, but inquiring Seung-cheon about his golden spoon just earns him a scornful dressing-down from Yeo-jin and a perplexed look from Joo-hee.

Just as he’s about to dismiss it all as a mere fairytale, however, an prospect arrives knocking at his door just as it experienced for Seung-cheon. As Tae-yong walks home, a glass sphere rolls to his ft, and he seems to be up to see the peddler grandma. She promises he have to be seriously determined if he can see her, and she’s not erroneous. Tempted, Tae-yong ends up acquiring the spoon.

Therefore starts Tae-yong’s spoon swap quest — believing that he’s taking again what is rightfully his, he begins to tie up unfastened finishes. As “Seung-cheon,” he tells Joo-hee that he’d somewhat remain close friends, internally vowing to acquire her coronary heart at the time he’s “Tae-yong” once more. Tae-yong’s mission to eat at the Hwang estate goes a good deal smoother than anticipated, and by the time Seung-cheon catches on, Tae-yong’s now on his second food.

Seung-cheon goes to the church to obvious his intellect, wherever he ends up receiving scared out of his wits by a really drunk Joo-hee. He can help her house, in which she admits to her really like-at-very first-sight crush on Seung-cheon. Since then, even though, she feels like he’s altered, which is why “Seung-cheon” has been firmly caught in the close friend-zone for the past ten years.

Seemingly obtaining experienced a sudden alter of coronary heart, Seung-cheon invites Tae-yong to his dwelling for his 3rd food. Of course, it is just bait Seung-cheon switched out Tae-yong’s spoon with a various one particular when he dropped by his residence previously. Tae-yong virtually eats, but at the final moment, he places his spoon down.

Furious at getting his programs thwarted, Seung-cheon demands for Tae-yong to take in, and the two boys get into a struggle. At last having experienced plenty of, Tae-yong yells that he will not swap — he doesn’t want to get rid of the finest dad and mom in the world. Because Seung-cheon threw them absent to develop into abundant, he can live with the implications of his possess steps.

“The

As Tae-yong leaves the Hwang estate, he reminisces about all the important memories with his relatives, from a humble yet joyful birthday get together to the working day they welcomed him back from his military enlistment. Just then, he gets a simply call from Mom, inquiring what he wishes for dinner.

Mother immediately notices his choked-up voice, stressing that he caught a chilly, and it moves Tae-yong to tears. Touched by his family’s unconditional really like, Tae-yong basically asks for kimchi stew, declaring which is all he requires. Sobs, I want him to remain with this spouse and children endlessly and ever!

“The

Chastened by Tae-yong’s phrases, Seung-cheon beverages his sorrows away. All this time, he’d excused his steps by telling himself that anyone would have performed the identical. Now that Tae-yong has verified him incorrect, however, he feels like an dreadful particular person.

Yeo-jin finds him at the bar, and she simply cannot aid but convenience him, saying that she attained toughness from understanding that she wasn’t by yourself in her spoon deceit. Momentarily swayed, Seung-cheon kisses her, and they make it all the way to a hotel room upstairs just before Seung-cheon all of a sudden sobers up.

“The “The

Seung-cheon ditches Yeo-jin to go straight to Joo-hee, pulling her into a hug and confessing that he skipped her. It is uncharacteristic of “Tae-yong,” but it feels all far too acquainted, and that receives Joo-hee pondering.

Before that working day, Joo-hee experienced identified the destitute ahjumma who took her stolen luggage (courtesy of Yeo-jin). The ahjumma’s insistence that she used to be a wealthy councilwoman, as very well as her mutterings about a golden spoon, had sparked Joo-hee’s suspicions. What if Tae-yong was right, and there without a doubt exists a golden spoon that can swap life?

Tentatively, Joo-hee asks if he’s Seung-cheon, and it stuns him. Tears fill the two their eyes, but Seung-cheon utters a swift denial and leaves before his emotions can get the much better of him.

“The

Now that Tae-yong’s designed the decision to remain with the Lee household, he decides to deliver the aspect dishes in their stead. Besides it is our spoon boys’ birthday, and Seung-cheon panics, remembering the birthday rule. He attempts his hardest to block Tae-yong and CEO Hwang from meeting, but to no avail all 3 lock eyes.

Apart from absolutely nothing transpires, and I heave a sigh of reduction — until finally Dad arrives by with much more food stuff, and all of a unexpected he’s addressing Tae-yong formally and keeping out the aspect dishes to Seung-cheon.

Nooooooo. Can this drama not permit us (examine: Tae-yong) have a single next of peace?! I guess I should have noticed it coming, provided how usually this drama likes to throw plot twists at us. Still, it felt a little bit like whiplash, going from Tae-yong resolutely picking his household to remaining yanked again into the Hwang one particular in opposition to his will. Also, does this indicate that neither one of our spoon duo is CEO Hwang’s authentic son?

I’ll be truthful — this was not solely what I envisioned from Tae-yong’s agency arc, and I’m fairly upset (even if his closing conclusion did redeem it a minimal). He switched up his tune quite fast, and I thought the drama could have even further explored his drive of wanting to reclaim what he believes is rightfully his, compared to his current contentment.

“The

On paper, the people and their narrative beats should to be compelling, but somehow the drama just falls flat. As I pointed out previous week, I feel it’s seeking to do way too considerably at at the time, which means we’re swept from plot level to plot position with out acquiring adequate time to procedure almost everything that is going on.

I suppose it could be entertaining if I just switched off my mind and mindlessly loved the journey, but I want to empathize with these people, and it is aggravating that I simply cannot. The overly speedy speed will make them appear capricious additional frequently than not, lowering them to just one-dimensional motivations when their figures have evidently been developed to be layered and sophisticated. It’s a disgrace that only one particular facet will come out at any offered time, when the plot needs it to.

“The

The quite premise of the demonstrate seems suitable for character progress, but as a substitute it feels like the people are caught spinning their wheels in spot. Even right after all these years, Seung-cheon is still ruthlessly opportunistic, Joo-hee is even now harmless and sheltered, Tae-yong is still naively self-righteous, and Yeo-jin is still cruel and manipulative. It is 1 point to be regular, but this goes outside of being trustworthy to their character — it just tends to make them stagnant and bland. Which is the comprehensive reverse of what this exhibit could be!

I have to admit that the much more the show pushes the passionate factor, the less I’m emotion it. Joo-hee serves as a easy (and weak) commitment for the boys, and in some cases it feels a bit like a cop-out. She deserves more agency (and I’m hoping she’ll get it now that she’s found out about the swap), although actually every single other factor of the boys’ struggles are a lot more persuasive than their romantic woes. Now that they’ve been switched but yet again, I have no idea where by the tale will go from listed here, but I hope it ultimately spurs some much-required character development.
