Our leads ultimately make headway on their murder investigation, honing in on the most most likely culprit. Meanwhile, possessing realized that points are not as they look, our prince-turned-pauper sets out to reclaim his fate.

 

EPISODES 11-12 WEECAP

“The

Caught with a book that is not supposed to be his, Seung-cheon promptly fibs that he occurred to obtain it years ago and took it due to the fact he liked Joo-hee. Prior to Joo-hee can ask any much more concerns, Seung-cheon gets a text from Yeo-jin that has him rushing off — she’s just sent images of Tae-yong about to consume with the golden spoon.

Properly, it turns out Seung-cheon does not will need to be concerned, due to the fact Tae-yong hasn’t taken a single bite. Yeo-jin’s continual scheming tends to make him drop his appetite, and he ends up slamming his spoon down and walking off.

“The

Back at house, Joo-hee connects the dots — Seung-cheon’s smiley face sketches align with Joon-tae’s nickname of “Mr. Smile.” Given that she has definitely no worry, she heads out to meet Joon-tae wearing a smiley face T-shirt, asking him pointed concerns about his time in the States.

Needless to say, Joon-tae’s brief fuse is lit, and he grabs Joo-hee’s hair menacingly. Out of nowhere, Seung-cheon comes to her rescue, possessing kept tabs on Joon-tae. But it is Joo-hee’s taser that does the trick, and the pair make a hasty escape whilst Joon-tae’s reeling from becoming zapped.

“The “The

If there’s one particular superior issue about that reckless, unsafe practical experience, it is that it ultimately gets our leads to place their heads with each other. Seung-cheon, Tae-yong, and Joo-hee convene at the latter’s home, piecing the facts with each other and delegating the function. Seung-cheon tracks down Joon-tae’s burner telephone supplier, and Joo-hee retrieves the case records of incidents in the vicinity of her home, on Tae-yong’s suggestion.

Of course, Joon-tae is not the form to lie low. He somehow manages to get about Joo-hee’s door lock and sneak into her apartment, getting her proof box sitting out in the open. Realizing how far along her investigation has gotten, he rashly decides to take matters into his personal hands, but Seung-cheon’s timely arrival stops him from bashing Joo-hee’s head in with a brick.

“The

The subsequent morning, Joo-hee and Tae-yong scour by means of black box footage, and it is not extended ahead of they obtain Joon-tae captured outdoors the Na residence. Add that to Seung-cheon’s confirmation that Joon-tae was certainly the final individual who referred to as CEO Na, by means of his burner telephone, and it appears we’ve discovered our killer.

Prior to they can do something about it, although, a news broadcast steals their thunder. Joon-tae has just turned himself in for the murder of CEO Na, and we see that just hours ahead of, CEO Hwang had paid him a stop by, manila envelope in hand.

“The “The

Joon-tae’s explanation of all of a sudden feeling a wave of remorse does not sound incredibly believable, but our primary trio simply accepts this conveniently anticlimactic resolution to their investigation. Of course, CEO Hwang does not do something unless he has anything to obtain, which tends to make me suspect he has a bigger stake in this murder case than it appears.

Following the adage of attracting much more flies with honey, CEO Hwang decides that he’ll place the Lee loved ones in their spot by displaying the energy of wealth. Not only does he lavish them with extravagant gifts, but he also locations common orders for their side dishes. Then he purposely leaves high priced art supplies out in complete view, as if to test Dad. Ugh, I do not like exactly where this is going.

“The

Given that the murder investigation is no longer on everyone’s priority list, Tae-yong’s thoughts turns back to Seung-cheon’s notebook. He realizes that the golden spoon swap would clarify all the anomalies, like him inexplicably understanding how to play the piano, but asking Seung-cheon about his golden spoon just earns him a scornful dressing-down from Yeo-jin and a confused appear from Joo-hee.

Just as he’s about to dismiss it all as a mere fairytale, although, an chance comes knocking at his door just as it had for Seung-cheon. As Tae-yong walks house, a glass sphere rolls to his feet, and he appears up to see the peddler grandma. She claims he will have to be truly desperate if he can see her, and she’s not incorrect. Tempted, Tae-yong ends up purchasing the spoon.

“The

Therefore starts Tae-yong’s spoon swap quest — believing that he’s taking back what is rightfully his, he starts to tie up loose ends. As “Seung-cheon,” he tells Joo-hee that he’d rather stay pals, internally vowing to win her heart when he’s “Tae-yong” once again. Tae-yong’s mission to consume at the Hwang estate goes a lot smoother than anticipated, and by the time Seung-cheon catches on, Tae-yong’s currently on his second meal.

Seung-cheon goes to the church to clear his thoughts, exactly where he ends up having scared out of his wits by a incredibly drunk Joo-hee. He assists her house, exactly where she admits to her adore-at-initial-sight crush on Seung-cheon. Given that then, although, she feels like he’s changed, which is why “Seung-cheon” has been firmly stuck in the buddy-zone for the previous decade.

“The

Seemingly possessing had a sudden alter of heart, Seung-cheon invites Tae-yong to his home for his third meal. Of course, it is just bait Seung-cheon switched out Tae-yong’s spoon with a diverse one particular when he dropped by his home earlier. Tae-yong pretty much eats, but at the final moment, he puts his spoon down.

Furious at possessing his plans thwarted, Seung-cheon demands for Tae-yong to consume, and the two boys get into a fight. Lastly possessing had sufficient, Tae-yong yells that he will not swap — he does not want to drop the very best parents in the globe. Given that Seung-cheon threw them away to come to be wealthy, he can reside with the consequences of his personal actions.

“The

As Tae-yong leaves the Hwang estate, he reminisces about all the valuable memories with his loved ones, from a humble however content birthday celebration to the day they welcomed him back from his military enlistment. Just then, he gets a get in touch with from Mom, asking what he desires for dinner.

Mom quickly notices his choked-up voice, worrying that he caught a cold, and it moves Tae-yong to tears. Touched by his family’s unconditional adore, Tae-yong basically asks for kimchi stew, saying that is all he wants. Sobs, I want him to keep with this loved ones forever and ever!

“The

Chastened by Tae-yong’s words, Seung-cheon drinks his sorrows away. All this time, he’d excused his actions by telling himself that everyone would have carried out the similar. Now that Tae-yong has verified him incorrect, although, he feels like an awful individual.

Yeo-jin finds him at the bar, and she cannot enable but comfort him, saying that she gained strength from understanding that she wasn’t alone in her spoon deceit. Momentarily swayed, Seung-cheon kisses her, and they make it all the way to a hotel space upstairs ahead of 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 missed her. It is uncharacteristic of “Tae-yong,” but it feels all as well familiar, and that gets Joo-hee pondering.

Earlier that day, Joo-hee had discovered the destitute ahjumma who took her stolen luggage (courtesy of Yeo-jin). The ahjumma’s insistence that she made use of to be a wealthy councilwoman, as properly as her mutterings about a golden spoon, had sparked Joo-hee’s suspicions. What if Tae-yong was appropriate, and there certainly exists a golden spoon that can swap lives?

Tentatively, Joo-hee asks if he’s Seung-cheon, and it stuns him. Tears fill each their eyes, but Seung-cheon utters a swift denial and leaves ahead of his feelings can get the greater of him.

“The

Now that Tae-yong’s produced the selection to keep with the Lee loved ones, he decides to provide the side dishes in their stead. Except it is our spoon boys’ birthday, and Seung-cheon panics, remembering the birthday rule. He tries his hardest to block Tae-yong and CEO Hwang from meeting, but to no avail all 3 lock eyes.

Except practically nothing takes place, and I heave a sigh of relief — till Dad comes by with much more meals, and all of a sudden he’s addressing Tae-yong formally and holding out the side dishes to Seung-cheon.

“The

Nooooooo. Can this drama not let us (study: Tae-yong) have one particular second of peace?! I guess I need to have noticed it coming, provided how generally this drama likes to throw plot twists at us. Nonetheless, it felt a small bit like whiplash, going from Tae-yong resolutely deciding on his loved ones to becoming yanked back into the Hwang one particular against his will. Also, does this imply that neither one particular of our spoon duo is CEO Hwang’s actual son?

I’ll be sincere — this was not completely what I anticipated from Tae-yong’s agency arc, and I’m somewhat disappointed (even if his final selection did redeem it a small). He switched up his tune quite rapidly, and I believed the drama could have additional explored his motivation of wanting to reclaim what he believes is rightfully his, versus his existing happiness.

“The

On paper, the characters and their narrative beats ought to be compelling, but somehow the drama just falls flat. As I described final week, I feel it is attempting to do as well significantly at when, which implies we’re swept from plot point to plot point without having possessing enough time to approach every thing that is going on.

I suppose it could be entertaining if I just switched off my brain and mindlessly enjoyed the ride, but I want to empathize with these characters, and it is frustrating that I cannot. The overly rapidly pace tends to make them look capricious much more generally than not, decreasing them to one particular-dimensional motivations when their characters have clearly been developed to be layered and complicated. It is a shame that only one particular side comes out at any provided time, anytime the plot demands it to.

“The

The incredibly premise of the show appears best for character improvement, but as an alternative it feels like the characters are stuck spinning their wheels in spot. Even soon after all these years, Seung-cheon is nonetheless ruthlessly opportunistic, Joo-hee is nonetheless innocent and sheltered, Tae-yong is nonetheless naively self-righteous, and Yeo-jin is nonetheless cruel and manipulative. It is one particular issue to be constant, but this goes beyond becoming faithful to their character — it just tends to make them stagnant and bland. Which is the comprehensive opposite of what this show could be!

I have to admit that the much more the show pushes the romantic aspect, the significantly less I’m feeling it. Joo-hee serves as a very simple (and weak) motivation for the boys, and in some cases it feels a bit like a cop-out. She deserves much more agency (and I’m hoping she’ll get it now that she’s discovered out about the swap), whilst actually every single other aspect of the boys’ struggles are much more compelling than their romantic woes. Now that they’ve been switched however once again, I have no thought exactly where the story will go from right here, but I hope it ultimately spurs some significantly-required character development.
