Dynamics are a-shiftin’ this week as our quick-tempered lead finds it tougher and tougher to keep on the hater train in the face of her sunny nemesis’s earnest charm. Meanwhile, our parachute employ enlists enable to match in with the commoners as he tries to adjust to the mixture of chaotic and mundane that is workplace life.
EPISODES five-six WEECAP
It is uncommon for a drama to make me laugh out loud, but Gaus Electronics continues to give me laugh-out-loud moments every episode. This week we get a lot more Ma-tan shenanigans (my favourite) and some flailing from Na-rae as she pretends to nevertheless hate Sang-shik who is developing on her regardless of her ideal efforts.
Soon after Aziz’s spur of the moment lie, Sang-shik and Na-rae do an atrocious job of pretending to be a couple. Hae-young can only roll her eyes as they insist it is correct though seeking like they’d rather be anyplace else than close to every other.
Sang-shik and Na-rae bicker even a lot more than usual, if that is doable, immediately after the dating lie. But then Na-rae begins to see Sang-shik in a new light and has an existential crisis. It all begins when she overhears Sang-shik speaking to a couple of coworkers about liking a person he applied to dislike but has a lot in frequent with. Na-rae assumes he should imply her and becomes hyperaware of Sang-shik.
While she sighs as if Sang-shik liking her is some enormous burden, she does not appear actually that upset by the notion. The a lot more she watches him, the a lot more she convinces herself he’s completely fallen for her. By the time he requires the blame when she embarrassingly farts in front of the complete group, she appears at him like he’s her knight in shining armor.
In spite of her insistence that Sang-shik liking her would be the worst, Na-rae is awfully upset to uncover he was in no way speaking about her at all. He was speaking about his ongoing appreciation for Elon Musk. Pfft.
Na-rae, with out providing any specifics about who the man is, shares the gist of the scenario with coworkers Kang-mi and SONG HYUNG-MI (Go Woo-ri) who each contact out her overreaction for what it genuinely is: a crush. Na-rae is horrified to recognize her subtle physique cues point to them getting ideal and does her ideal to prevent make contact with with Sang-shik, which is a small tough offered that they operate with each other and are subsequent-door neighbors.
Soon after a operate dinner, Na-rae drunkenly trips and breaks her shoe, leaving her no selection but to let Sang-shik piggyback her household. As he struggles below her weight, he apologizes for involving her in his mess with Hae-young. Proper as he says how completely more than her he is, he spots Hae-young up ahead… and promptly dumps Na-rae off his back. She hits the ground challenging and ends up with each arms sprained in a cast. OMG.
Na-rae is reasonably angry, but even so, she cannot enable feeling a small lovestruck anytime Sang-shik tries to take care of her. Given that she says she does not want him about, Sang-shik delegates Aziz as her caregiver for the subsequent week till her casts are removed and she can choose items up and feed herself once more. In the meantime, Aziz makes use of the capabilities he picked up from functioning component-time at a veterinary hospital to
train enable Na-rae.
Elsewhere, Ma-tan is nevertheless struggling to figure out how to blend with the commoners, and it is not assisting that his coworkers all give various assistance. Kang-mi tells him to preserve his head down and be deferential, though Sang-shik is adamant he need to hold his head higher and show every person his worth. Hyung-mi’s sensible assistance for smooth sailing at operate is my favourite: record all your sunbaes for simple reporting to the Ministry of Labor. HA. Poor Ma-tan ends up seeking a lot more ridiculous than usual as he tries to comply with his sunbaes’ conflicting assistance simultaneously.
To add to his woes, Ma-tan continually gets stuck with the workplace grunt operate given that he’s awful at the simple Korean games applied to designate the loser. He’s so bothered by his failure that he promises to cancel Kang-mi’s debt if she trains him (which she does military style). Ma-tan puts in a ridiculous quantity of practice only to locate he’s stuck carrying out all the things anyway given that he’s the maknae.
And then, there’s his secret that is normally on the verge of getting revealed. This time, he’s virtually outed by AI. Gaus obtains rival Energy Group’s newest AI speaker that is programmed to do just about all the things, such as recognize the Energy Group chairman’s voice. (In spite of getting clear exactly where this was going, it nevertheless cracked me up.) The second Ma-tan speaks, it cheerfully greets Chairman Baek to Ma-tan’s panic. Kang-mi significantly smashes it to bits to safeguard Ma-tan’s super secret identity.
There’s this sort of sad side plot with SENIOR MANAGER WI (Heo Jung-do) who frequently plays video games and does not appear to care about operate. He ends up obtaining to devote a day testing the AI speaker and gets way also attached to it. He treats it like a substitute for his wife who lives abroad with their youngsters. It is supposed to be funny how he’s treating this AI like a girlfriend, but I just discovered it sad to see how lonely he is with his family members so far away.
Amidst their usual chaos that somehow in no way appears to really involve functioning, Marketing and advertising Group three is ultimately offered a mission. They’re tasked with placing on an occasion for a item launch. It is a comparatively easy occasion, so of course, items go majorly awry. Thanks to a printing mix-up, the Gaus chairman’s face ends up on a balloon that was meant to have a image of the item. The group watches in helpless horror as an arrow sinks the balloon, going ideal via the Chairman’s smiling face for all to see on their livestream.
Soon after that rough day for the group, Sang-shik comes household to an angry Na-rae. She discovered out that he’s been paying Aziz to take care of her for the week. But Na-rae cannot hold onto her anger in the face of drunk Sang-shik’s sad puppy dog eyes as he apologizes for hurting her in the initial location.
That is when Na-rae tends to make a bold move and kisses Sang-shik. Oho! Sang-shik is shocked but noticeably not mad at it. Na-rae even goes in for a second kiss just before she gets ahold of herself. We finish as she pushes away from him in shock and lightly smacks him for kissing her back, I guess, spectacular him for a second time.
I do not know how she’s going to spin that 1. If she’d just kissed him briefly after, possibly she’d have an out. But the girl went in for seconds and even slipped her cast off for leverage. Her only prospective way out of admitting her feelings is if Sang-shik forgets or pretends to neglect given that he was a bit drunk.
While Na-rae clearly likes Sang-shik, and there are indicators he’s beginning to like her also, I do not believe either of them are prepared to admit it. I foresee some a lot more (potentially enjoyable) denial and bickering just before they’re prepared to cop to their feelings and determine what to do about them.
