A Gentleman’s Dignity Episode 7 Review

Episode Recap

In 2002, that day is before Jung Rok’s wedding. Do Jin, Tae San, and Yoon, with a group of soccer fans, goes to Min Sook’s house to pay their dues as groomsmen and earn access to the bride for Jung Rok. They wait outside impatiently. Just when they almost call out, the doors open and they see three beautiful women. They are so excited and Yoon starts to sing a song for the nunas. The next day, at the wedding, Min Sook is not smiling for a wedding portrait with friends because the people on Jung Rok’s side are mostly young, pretty women.

We are back with Yi Soo who thinks about the kiss with Do Jin but she reminds herself that he is a bad guy. She feels annoyed that he kissed her with her noticing. However, she consoles herself that at least he only kissed on her outer lips. She rummages through her underwear drawer while badmouthing Do Jin. Then, she tries to remember where she put her kitty underwear. Then, she grumbles about her upper body. Without noticing, Do Jin’s pen recorder, in his jacket, has been on for the past eight hours.

Do Jin wakes up and states that today is April 18th. But, he is shock when both his clock and phone shows that it’s 7AM on April 19th which shocks him. He heads to his closet and searches for the pen recorder but can’t find it. He comes out into the kitchen and sees Yoon in an apron putting breakfast on the table. He urges Do Jin to go wash up. He asks Yoon whether they went out for a drink last night. Yoon responds that they were drinking at the bar. Do Jin asks if anything else happened. Yoon points out that Tae San made the mistake of hugging Yi Soo whom he thought it was Se Ra. Yoon reminds him that he was there. Do Jin continues to question about what happened last night. Yoon tells him to listen to his recorder. Unfortunately, Do Jin has no idea where is his pen recorder.

During a business meeting, Tae San thinks back about what Se Ra told him that Yi Soo has a crush on him. He sighs loudly and everyone wonders what is wrong with him. He requests to postpone the meeting. He wants to have a private conversation with Do Jin. They went outside and Tae San asks Do Jin asks if he should apologize to Do Jin for back hugging Yi Soo. He wants to know whether both Do Jin and Yi Soo are still together. Do Jin replies that he can’t remember what happened last night. Do Jin asks Tae San whether he saw the heels at his office which makes Tae San surprised.

Dong Hyub and his friends leave school after class. They spot Do Jin with his car in the parking lot. They approach Do Jin and Dong Hyub slightly kicks Betty’s wheels. He asks Do Jin for money. Suddenly, Yi Soo shouts out Dong Hyub’s name. Then, he says ‘nicely’ to Do Jin that he was just joking. He and his friend walk away. Yi Soo’s annoying colleagues can’t take their sight out from Do Jin’s handsome looks. Yi Soo approaches Do Jin who asks her why she didn’t pick up the calls. She replies that she doesn’t check her phone during school hours. Do Jin sighs. He opens the car door her while Yi Soo’s colleague squeal in excitement as they see how Do Jin treats Yi Soo like his girlfriend.

They head over to Yi Soo’s house to pick up Do Jin’s jacket which makes her looks disappointed. She carefully asks if he has nothing to say to her. He replies that he has no idea what she wants him to talk about. He retrieves his jacket and assumes that she was grateful for the warmth which was given by him. Yi Soo stops him and points out that Do Jin forgot about what happened last night. Do Jin asks what really happened which Yi Soo says to him seriously. He asks her whether they slept together which makes put Yi Soo in a tight situation. Then, she gets a call from Tae San. Do Jin takes her phone and informs Tae San that he’s with Yi Soo right now. Do Jin will talk with him when he is back in the office. He returns the phone back to Yi Soo and leaves while Yi Soo is in frustration about Do Jin’s actions.

At the office, Do Jin listens carefully about the situation last night. He is angry about how Tae San hugged Yi Soo. Tae San gulps nervously and tells him to just listen to everything first. He gets to the part where he kissed Yi Soo and he has “damn” on his face. Tae San asks what happened and Do Jin replies that he thinks he made a mistake today.

At the park, Yoon tells Yi Soo that Do Jin’s pen is a recorder because he has a short term memory loss when he gets stressed out. If he gets anxious, he will forget about what happened a couple of minutes ago or even the entire day. Yoon explains that Do Jin and Tae San’s company went bankrupt three times. First time, he lost his pride. Second time, he lost his car and house. The last time, he lost his self-worth. Yi Soo listens clearly about Do Jin and she never thought that Do Jin is a picky man. Yoon replies that even the most confident people have their own problems. She nods in agreement. Suddenly, she remembers that she privately talked to herself last night while the pen recorder was on. In panic, she says goodbye to Yoon and runs off before Do Jin listens to her whole private conversation.

Do Jin visits the doctor who shows him his MRI scans. The doctor claims that there is nothing wrong with him. It is probably the stress that caused him to forget. He inquires if Do Jin has been going through tough times for the past few days. He admits that he has been through a lot. He adds that he is pursuing a one-sided love on a special person. The doctor points out that love can be a disease which is harmful to Do Jin’s health. As he walks out the door, Do Jin calls the doctor irresponsible because a patient has to take care of his own disease.

Yi Soo tries to call Do Jin to prevent him from listening to the recorder. Meanwhile, in his apartment, he enjoys listening to her grumbles about underwear and surprise kisses. Suddenly, the recording gets quiet and he hears her starting to change. He imagines that she is changing in front of him. Then, he starts to move to look at the imaginary Yi Soo’s sexy naked body. The doorbell rings and he quickly turns the recorder off before letting Yi Soo inside. She asks how much he’s heard and he lies that he only listens until the kissing part. She smiles as she is relieved about it and reminds him about that they were kissing underneath the cherry blossoms. He laughs as he believes that she enjoyed the kiss which makes her clears her throat to avoid responding. She tries to steal the recorder but he grabs it first. They play chasing game until they fall onto the couch which leaves them in a steamy close romance scenario.

Do Jin grabs her collar to keep her from getting up. He tells her that she probably knew about his illness through Yoon. He assures that he didn’t purposely forget anything. She understands and demands him to let go of her collar. He asks her to stop moving. He mentions about her secret talk about her kitty underwear which makes Yi Soo in shock. He smiles and says that her style fits her well including that he preferred Cat Woman over Wonder Woman.

She hides her head on his chest to avoid letting him see her blush while his hearts start to beat when she is closer to him. She tries to run away but he grabs her arm and blames her for causing him to be stressed out. He lets go of her arm and tells her to go as she walks toward of the door. He said he didn’t finish talking. She responds that she knows that he doesn’t want her to leave. He smirks and replies that he was going to say that she has to go before the traffic is bad. She rushes out the door in embarrassment. He knew that her assumption is correct and, deep within his heart, he doesn’t want her to go.

Yi Soo goes all jumpy about being embarrassed in front of Do Jin and asks heaven if she is going to keep doing like this. When she returns home, she receives the red dress from the dry cleaning lady. She calls Me Ahri over to return the dress to her. She claims that the dress is too expensive to hang in her closet. Me Ahri assures that the dress doesn’t cost more than 100 dollars. Me Ahri adds that she doesn’t have money. She wanted to give her the dress a thank you gift for looking after her and sending pictures of Yoon from time to time when she was abroad. Yi Soo accepts the gift and admires the dress while recalling the sweet event at the hotel bathroom with Do Jin.

Se Ra completes a photo shoot for a clothing brand and goes out to have drinks with friends. She is waiting for Tae San to call her but he didn’t. Then, she decides to ignore Tae San calls. Her friend urges her to pick it up. She points out that Tae San will not look for her if she picks up. Later, Tae San walks into the restaurant and takes her away like a hero is saving the princess from evil. They walk towards Se Ra’s house while holding hands. When there are almost at her place, he stops and tells her to go inside so he won’t bump into Yi Soo. She goes jealous and accuses him that he starts to have feelings for Yi Soo. She demands an apology from him but he ignores. Yi Soo calls him and Tae San wants to talk with her somewhere. He walks off leaving Se Ra wells up with tears.

Yi Soo meets Tae San and explains that she is not angry about the back hugging last night. She is mostly worried about Se Ra who is upset about this. Yi Soo tells him to be there for her and she doesn’t mind that he say bad things about her to Se Ra. Tae San slowly admits that he really likes Se Ra. Yi Soo smiles even though, within her heart, she is upset. Tae San assures her that everyone but Se Ra knows that she’s the one he loves.

Se Ra downs a shot of whiskey as Yi Soo comes home after her meeting with Tae San. Se Ra passes her jacket to her and sarcastically says that it suits her really well. Yi Soo assures her that the whole situation was just a simple mistake. Se Ra, then, talks back at her about the gloves and Tae San’s high school picture in her planner as ‘mistakes’. Yi Soo admits that she does but she doesn’t want to ruin the relationship between Se Ra and Tae San. Se Ra snaps that she did her a favour: she told Tae San about Yi Soo’s crush yesterday.

Yi Soo starts to tear up and she admits that she was going to confess to Tae San the day she bought the gloves. However, he had asked for Se Ra’s number before she could say anything. She tells Se Ra that she should have kept this as a secret to keep her pride. She goes on saying that she should have confessed to Tae San in the first place so that she can still keep her pride. Yi Soo challenges herself that she might try to steal Tae San away from Se Ra. She says that after tonight, she doesn’t want to see Se Ra.

The next day, Yoon comes out from his office to see Colin asking Me Ahri out to dinner. She giggles as she is looking forward to hanging out with him but stops when she realizes Yoon is behind her. He walks past her without a word. Colin takes Me Ahri out to a chicken restaurant. He asks her whether Tae San is married. She goes curious about whether he wants her to be her girlfriend since she accidently told him that she’s rich when she was drunk at the club. Then, she thought that he wants to get to know her because she is pretty. Colin rolls his eyes and then asks her to talk after swallowing her food because he has a weak stomach.
Yi Soo drives home but stays in her car to watch a baseball game on her phone. Do Jin shows up and he see Yi Soo outside. He parks and gets into Yi Soo’s car which startles her. He tells her that she still hasn’t pick up his calls. She lies that she hardly checks her phone after work. She asks why he is here and he gives her a new laptop. She thanks him and gives him back the money which she borrowed last time. Do Jin notices that something is wrong. He is told from Yi Soo that Tae San knew about the one-sided love from Se Ra. She says that it is over. She accepts the laptop and tells Do Jin to not to see her again.

He responds that he never agreed to something she decided on her own. She ignores him and declares that he has the good qualities of a perfect man but he is not interested in her. She wants to date younger men from now on. His eyes are wide open in disbelief. She adds on that she wants a younger man who is funny and charming. He sits back in his seat speechless. Later that night, in his apartment, he thinks about what Yi Soo has said about dating a younger man. Yoon sits on the other side of the couch from him while he recalls what he saw Me Ahri with Colin being together.

Yoon suddenly spits out the word “younger” and Do Jin instantly sits upright and asks Yoon how does he know what is he thinking. Do Jin, immediately, knows that Me Ahri is dating a younger man. He thinks that Me Ahri has influenced Yi Soo to do the same thing as her. Feeling offended, Yoon shouts that Yi Soo is the teacher. Thus, Yoon thinks that Yi Soo must have been the one who taught Me Ahri about dating younger guys. Yoon is disappointed how little Do Jin knows about Yi Soo. Do Jin asks why Me Ahri is going out with a younger boyfriend if he knows everything about her. Do Jin adds that who is the one who like Soo Young from Girls Generation: getting autograph and doing embarrassing choreography moves.

At the Im household, Me Ahri slams down a basket of laundry and complains that Jung Rok used six towels a day. However, Tae San scolds her for putting the towels all at once and advices her to hide them. Tae San demands that Jung Rok stop stealing his underwear. Jung Rok decides to meet Min Sook at a local church to talk. Later, when she arrives, she finds Jung Rok kneeling in front of the altar.

He confesses that he had done many sins by going out with other younger women and leave her alone all the time. She sarcastically laughs and tells him that he is still a player. Thus, he is still kicked out of the house.
The boys head to a bar to celebrate Yoon’s birthday. Surprisingly, Me AhRi is there with the birthday cake. Jung Rok also shows up with two models. After having a small talk, Me Ahri lights the candles on the cake and urges everyone to make a wish. One of the models laughs that a forty year old man blowing out the candles is childish. Me Ahri scolds the lady for being so rude. Then, Tae San forces her to go home. However, Me Ahri bursts into tears as Tae San does that because he knows she really likes Yoon. Tae San drags her out of the room while she is crying. Suddenly, Yoon grabs Tae San’s arm and stands up to demand that he let go of Me Ahri.

Point of View

I am surprised that Do Jin’s has the memory loss. I am worry that something might happened to him. Oh well, we just had to wait and see. I am imagining that when Do Jin is suffering with that disease, Yi Soo will be so upset that she has to be by his side to the very end. Now, that is a good story. Then, again, if a scenario that will show that Do Jin forgets about Yi Soo, that is sad and I might cry. But, we all just wait, alright?

Yi Soo’s one-sided love with Tae San is out. Now that Tae San knows about this, I get the feeling that he will have feelings for her. Then, the love triangle is created (Do Jin, Yi Soo, and Tae San). I am still sticking to Do Jin to be with Yi Soo a lot. Do Jin will have to take actions to show his genuine feelings to Yi Soo. My favourite love scene between Do Jin and Yi Soo, in this episode, is when they are on the couch. He is really handsome when he lies down and shows his smile. To be honest, that makes me want to faint in a good way. I can see that there some chemistry between them including Yi Soo who is being a bit shy. I also like how Yi Soo goes jumpy when it comes to the relationship with Do Jin. It makes me enjoy her funny side. Yi Soo points out that she wants to have a relationship with younger men which I might imagine maybe she might go on a date with Colin. Besides that, Dong Hyub has a crush on Yi Soo. It makes me curious about what noona and dongsaeng relationship is like.

Finally, Colin aka Jong Hyun from CN Blue is featured in this episode. To me, I think there must be something missing from him. Yes, I like his cool personality of his. But, like I said, something is missing. Then again, I can’t criticize him that much since he just came out. Looks like I have to see how Jong Hyun will act well in this drama since it is his first debut. I am looking forward to see how Colin will deal with the four gentlemen. He has a photo of them with a woman who is probably his mother. I can imagine when they found out that one of them is Colin’s father. This drama is going to get spicy with stories that we can imagine but looking forward to see what will happen next.
