Angel Eyes Ep 16 Recap
I dont want to! That’s what Dong-Joo tells Soo-Wan when she asked him to disappear from her life. We continue that heartbreaking scene where Soo-Wan handed out the ring to Dong-Joo’s hands. and Dong-Joo is near tears trying to stop her but Soo-Wan lets go and walked away from him.
Min-soo meets up with Soo-Wan at a cafe. A Concerned Min-soo, asked how Soo-Wan is and if she was able to see her dad and Dong-Joo and continued saying:
Min-soo: i heard about Dong-Joo’s being the donor. I know you might feel that it’s a different level than just gratitude. But think of it as a gift, a gift that your mother who passed away sent you.
Soo-Wan tells Min-soo that she broke up with Dong-Joo so Min-soo tries to console her telling her that she might be in pain but she and Dong-Joo loves each other. But Soo-Wan just said that she doesn’t have the right such a gift. Then she tells Min-soo that she is in so much pain, she hurts so much she feels like dying and asked her what should she do?
Meanwhile at the hospital, a sobbing Dong-Joo is talking to the unconscious director:
Dong-Joo: Soo-Wan asked me to disappear. She can’t look at my eyes anymore. She can’t look at me and smile, she says that she can’t hug me for my sake anymore! Don’t you know my struggle just to get this far? Feeling sorry to my mother, swallowing all the hate towards you by only thinking of Soo Wan. The one person who I wished to be mine, is only Soo Wan. I told you that she shouldn’t know. You should have told her that it wasn’t true. That it was a lie!
Then dad opened his eyes.
Detective Woo-Chul was on the rooftop and wanted a smoke but because he was prohibited by the Drs, he decided to pick up a half-smoked cigarette near the trash(desperate much eh? :P) he walks near the ledge to smoke it when he saw Dr.Oh Young-Ji and evil police chief talking. They are quite far so i think its impossible that he hears what they are saying.
Evil Police Chief tells Dr.Oh Young-Ji that the car that they disposed was found because the junk yard owner thought it was worth a salvage because it has minimum damage but he made a lot of changes to make sure its unrecognisable. Dr.Oh Young-Ji what will happen now, and Evil Chief reassures her that the only thing that can be confirmed is that it is Prosecutor Kang’s car that went in for demolition that it cannot be used as evidence for the car accident. But Dr.Oh Young-Ji is not confident with his answer and asked what they can do. Evil Chief said that he will need her help this time. Then the camera pans out and Detective Woo-Chul is still on the rooftop with an something-fishy-is-going-here-face.
Back at the hospital Dr.Kang Ji-Woon assures Dong-Joo that the director is getting better but still cannot talk when Soo-Wan suddenly opens the door, upon seeing Dong-Joo she closed it again.
Soo-Wan seats outside the hospital, Dr.Kang Ji-Woon approaches her and said that he knows that Dong-Joo knows everything and he might not grasp to the full extent of why the director did it but its sad how much he must have wanted it, how much he loved you that he did something like that. Soo-Wan said that Ji-Woon is a doctor too. Ji-Woon asked back: “How many people do you think that Father-in-law has saved in his lifetime?” and continues telling Soo-Wan that because he is human and because he is a parent he made that misatake. As Soo-Wan stoop up to go, she thanked him for talking in behalf of her father.
A worried Woon-Chan and Teddy hurries home because Jinmoo caught the bug that was going around the school, when Woon-Chan told Ellie that she should go home now, Jinmoo stopped her and asked her not to go so Ellie stayed.
The next day Jinmoo approached his dad and Tedyy and told them that his feeling better and that Ellie is sleeping at his room. Teddy said that they should wake her up because she should eat. When Teddy saw that she was unconscious so they brought her to the hospital.
At the hospital the doctors explained that she has a weaker immune system than most people because she had a bone marrow transplant, even though she fully recovered she still needs to be careful.
Woon-Chan stayed and watched over her and when she woke up, he tells her not to overwork herself and Ellie laughed at his jokes which was witnessed by a jealous Teddy (awwwww..)
Soo-Wan was taking care of her father and tells her father:
Soo-Wan: My father needs a shave. When did you get so many wrinkles? You hated taking care of your health because you wanted to go to Mom quicker, huh? The past 12 years, everyday that you lived here, must have been like hell for you. I wasn’t too bright then but there are so many things that I understand now. When i first opened my eyes, you wont look into my eyes, i thought that you might still hate me because of mom. But it must be painful right? Because every time you look at me you must have felt punished. But is still wished you didn’t do it. No matter how pitiful you are Dad i still cant say thank you, But dad, I’ll make you less lonely now. Let’s stay together. I’m thinking of letting Dong Joo go. Let us let Dong Joo go. Let’s do that.
Let’s pull him out of this Hell. Dong Joo who didnt do anything wrong, so lets do that.
Soo-Wan fell asleep by her father’s side when we see the sad eyes of the director tearing up a little.
Dong-Joo is drinking his heart out and recalling the time when Soo-Wan made him promise that he will never leave her. He came home stumbling and Ellie asked him what’s wrong. Dong-Joo just apologized and went inside his room. In his sleep he kept muttering, No Soo-Wan no.. (so sad:c)
The next morning when he woke up, he sees Hye-Joo knitting up something and asked her about it, she said that mom used to do it that wile knitting thread by thread you think of that person, because of love. so Dong-Joo asked who she was going to give it to but Ellie coyly replied that its a secret :) hehe
At the hospital, Min-soo and Ji-Woon was talking outside, Min-soo told him that because the director and her sunbae is in the hospital she is frequently here. Ji-Woon said its nice that he sees her often and asked her what did she want to ask him. Min-soo hesitantly said not to misunderstand but she is telling him because its not proper to hide things between them so she began by saying that while she was investigation the case, 12 years ago, Prosecutor Kang bought a sportscar and then had it destroyed. When Ji-Woon asked what about the car, Min-soo replies that since she was re-investigating Park Dong Joo’s mother’s accident, that came up and she is notifying him that there might be a subpoena for his father. Ji-Woon asked where did the accident occur. When Min-soo replied, Ji-Woon had a look of consternation in his face and decide to go to the department of records.
At the department of records he viewed all the patients from January to February looking for a name Kim Hye Sook. The notes in her record indicate that the patient was hit by a car while riding a bicycle and twisted her ankle. Ji-Woon then began writing down her information.
Dong-Joo was pondering on his house when Hye-Joo came in, asking if Unnie is okay, if she should make pumpkin porridge for her when Dong-Joo said that there’s something that he has to tell her.
The next morning, Hye-Joo and Soo-Wan meets up to talk. Hye-Joo began saying that Soo-Wan should not to be like this, that oppa was okay with it, she is okay with it, that she is actually happy because her mother made Soo-Wan open her eyes. Hye-Joo asked her why does she not like it and why does she have to breakup with her brother? Hye-joo continued telling her that her mother is smart because its not someone else but its her, Soo-Wan. She is extremely proud of what her mother did but why Soo-Wan dont feel the same way? Soo-Wan apologized but Hye-Joo said not to say sorry but instead be thankful, and that as long as you are good to us then we can be happy together. Soo-Wan told her that Unnie and Oppa don’t seem to be helpful to each other. Because Dong-Joo had a bright future ahead of him. Hye counters back that it’s all excuses, everything can be solved by love (Oh if its only that easy :c). Hye-Joo tells her she doesnt even know how to hate her, Soo-Wan said you can hate me and gave her the whistle necklace.
When Soo-Wan went home, a furious Dong-Joo asks why she gave the necklace to Hye-Joo and asked her to stop being stubborn because he wasnt just going to give up like that easily. Soo-Wan told him that they are at the age where they know they wont die after breaking up. Dong-Joo said it felt like he was going to die to the point that dying could be better. Soo-Wan asked him to leave and Dong-Joo asked “how many times do I have to tell you to believe me?” but Soo-Wan just said that she felt like death whenever she sees him so to please leave.
Both of them have flashback of their sweet moments while on their own at their house :(
Ji-Woon went to Mrs. Kim Hye Sook’s place. When we suddenly see a flashback of a terrified younger Ji-Woon with his mom at the hospital. Dr. Oh Young-Ji is asking about the patient, Mrs. Kim Hye Sook, who got hit by a car. His mother visited the patient. Back to the present day, the patient is telling Ji-Woon how thankful she was because Dr. Oh Young-Ji took care of her and even gave me compensation when she got discharge. Ji-Woon discovered that she fell before the car hit her but she doesn’t know how the doctor new about the almost accident.
At a stoplight, on his way back, Ji-Woon saw a lady with her bike and had a flashback to the night of Jung-Hwa’s accident, (OH NO, i knew it!:c) we see that that the driver of the car is a scared Ji-Woon.
At his house, visibly shaken, his mother asked what’s wrong. Ji-Woon said that the accident, the hit and run, he was the one who was driving the car that day, but he cant understand is he didnt kill the person even though he ran away. His mom consoled him that nobody said that it wasnt him that he saw himself that the patient was smiling. Ji-Woon asked her what happened? what it is that he saw that day and what did she do to him?
Dong-Joo was walking to the director’s room at the hospital when he heard a crash and quickly went inside. He saw a shattered vase and a pale Soo-Wan, he told her that he will clean it up and saw that she her hands was bleeding, when he was about to care for it, Soo-Wan stopped him and asked him to please just leave because she really doesnt want to see him anymore. She said that she wants to go back to the day before she met him because those times were better. It was better when she couldnt see. There’s a look of resignation in Dong-Joo’s face as he agrees and tells her that he’ll stop making it hard for her.
We see a tons of flashback to those sweet moments like the kiss, the proposal.
Then we see Dong-joo packing and the Chief said it seem sad now that he is leaving. Then he walked to all the places and recalled the sweet memories he had with Soo-Wan at the fire station.
Dong-Joo meets up with Min-soo at a cafe and gave her Soo-Wan’s things and asked her to take care of Soo-Wan.
At the hospital, Min-soo stopped by Detective Woo-Chul’s room and asked him why is love between a man and a woman so complicated? But this two, no serious conversation is without a banter and their exchange also led to the divorce of Woo-Chul’s and his wife until the detective asked Min-soo to just go and leave him be. Hehe.
When Soo-Wan received the things that Dong-Joo gave, she listened to the ipod.
Dong-Joo: Yoon Soo Wan. Don’t cry. Don’t be hurt. I tried so hard so that you won’t cry. But, it turned out like this. I’m sorry. It’s fine if you forget everything and not keep (the promise). But, the promise I made with Jung Hwa, Don’t be in pain, Don’t get hurt and [live] a long long time. Please keep that promise. I have nothing much to say.
His voice choked, full of emotion because he was near tears then he his goodbye was: Soo-Wan-ah then he burst into tears and Soo-wan was crying as well. :(
Then we see that Dong-Joo is holding plane tickets (his and Soowan’s) going to Boston except we all know that Soowan is not coming.
Before he left, he stopped by the director’s room and talked to him and told him that he wont be coming back anymore. Since its the last time, he asked why did he do it?
Dong-Joo: “You made me dream to become a doctor… Why did you have to come? You shouldn’t have treated me well. I can’t even hate you. Do you know what it means for me to let Soo-Wan go? I really hate you right now. i wish the earth will crumble and swallow me. But i still need to leave her. I thought the only person who can make Soo Wan happy. But i lost my confidence, so i need to leave. It would’ve been great if the surgery went well and you could be able to talk. Because there’s something i want to hear. What did i mean to you?
Then DongJoo stood up and left. Then we see that father tries to reach out but its already too late Dongjoo already left. Then he removed his oxygen mask and made this gurgling sound. Dong-Joo who was still crying standing outside the door and suddenly turns his head around.
Did he hear it? i dont know i guess we will have to find out in a weeks time T_T Can believe it four more episodes left :(
