Scent of a woman continues with the feel good direction, episode 5 again, makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over.
This episode, Ji Wook falls in love helplessly, he tries to rationalize it but clearly heart rules no matter how you think.
Ji Wook takes Yeon Jae to see the old man about the road, on their way back Yeon Jae asks Ji Wook to drop her off. Ji Wook follows Yeon Jae and finds her changed in her hot red dancing dress. He looks at Yeon Jae from toe to head, stunning, he must be thinking. He can’t take his eyes off her. ‘What are you doing here?’ Ji Wook is intrigued.
Yeon Jae has also noticed him standing in front of her,’I am here to learn Tango, but are you following me?’ Yeon Jae asks, Ji Wook wakes up and waves a phone in his hands. He is here to give back her phone. Ji Wook leaves the studio, but he keeps the thought with him, Tango or actually it’s Yeon Jae.
Yeon Jae waits for the lesson to begin, and the coin man comes over ‘Call me Francis.’ He tells Yeon Jae.
The next day, Ji Wook finds himself standing in front of the Tango studio, ‘I am crazy.’ He says to himself and cannot bring himself to turn the door knob. A voice comes from behind, ‘Everyone thinks this way the first time, come on in.’ As she speaks, she pushes Ji Wook into the room.
Again, Ji Wook finds himself standing in front of Yeon Jae, today in a black deep v dress, who is still very surprised to see him. ‘You are here to see me?’ ‘Of course not, I am…here to…learn tango.’ Okie, Mr. Ji Wook, see what have you got yourself into.
The lesson begins, everyone walks in circle, bored with regrets, Ji Wook reluctantly moves along.
It is time for pair practice, Francis demonstrates how to dance with a partner, and he practices with Yeon Jae. He asks Yeon Jae to put her hands on his chest and he holds her shoulder, Ji Wook sees this, filled with jealousy, his eyes are about to pull his wig off.
Time to change partners, Ji Wook walks towards Yeon Jae. Gently, Yeon Jae places her hands on Ji Wook’s firm chest (I cannot help but to think about the shower scene from episode 3, that must feel good, Ms Kim).
Ji Wook’s heart-rate starts to pick up, so quickly that Yeon Jae feels it. Ji Wook slowly lifts his hands and holds Yeon Jae. Yeon Jae shakes a little, they start dancing. The tension is there, with eyes look at each other that intense and hearts beat this fast, the next thing on my mind is, kiss her!
Francis breaks in, tells Ji Wook…to be honest I cannot not hear him talking anymore, all I am thinking is he could not have picked a better timing!
Half of the time, Lee Dong Wook’s eyes look like he’s never woken up in this drama but those eyes can talk when he wants them too. Especially in this tango scene, his acting seems matured and his eyes are endearingly captivating.
Yeon Jae is chosen to attend JunSu’s fan meeting, and she brings Eun Sook with her, who is 100% unwilling but 100% supportive.
Fan meetings can be crazing, you have a room full of people who are crazy about one single thing, Jun Su. They are loud with force, shouts one single name hundred times without feeling tired, Eun Sook covers his ears when fans scream, a neat touch added to his character that I notice and like.
JunSu sings and dances, at end of the fan meeting he wants to pick someone to have dinner with him, and he picks a couple. He calls out for Eun Sook, and reads the note Yeon Jae wrote. Yeon Jae feels awkward and apologetic, as she wrote about him meeting his first love after 25 years, but unfortunately she is sick so can they have dinner.
Ji Wook is in the audience, how complicated, he heard the note and saw Eun Sook and Yeon Jae standing side by side. His face twists, mixed with jealousy, he is not too happy hearing what he hears and seeing where he sees.
After the meeting, Eun Sook asks if Yeon Jae feels this way about him, the first love. Yeon Jae clears up, she has done this mainly for the fan meeting. Ji Wook over hears and smiles.
JYJ JunSu is delightful in this episode, natural at being himself and his acapella version of ‘You are so beautiful’ is heart melting. Even more in this context, a popular singer sings for his fan, one to one.
Episode 5 ends at Yeon Jae receives a court order, a 3 billion won compensation.
