In the episode of KBS 1TV’s Cheer Up, Mr. Kim that aired on February 28, Woo Kyung (played by Wang Ji Hye) realizes that Mr. Kim (played by Kim Dong Wan) may mean more than just a friend to her. Since their short trip together in the last episode, Woo Kyung can’t help but thinking about Mr. Kim a lot. She even asks her brother for some insight. She asks, “What does it mean when you can confide in somebody about things that you could never tell anyone else?” The answer she gets is, “I think that means that somebody is a very special person to you.” So, she starts thinking about her feelings for him even more.
Mr. Kim doesn’t feel much different from Woo Kyung. He thinks about her a lot, and her calls make him nervous and excited. However, he knows there are many obstacles between them. To name a couple that we know: One, he works as a housekeeper at Woo kyung’s family’s house. Thus, the difference in their social and financial status. Two, he lives with and takes care of four children, two of who were in Woo Kyung’s class last year. Even though he is not their father, this complicates things as he has lots of responsibilities, and the children and Woo Kyung know each other.
Mr. Kim therefore decides to avoid seeing Woo Kyung or talking to her on the phone. Woo Kyung feels the discomfort that he feels and asks him about it, but Mr. Kim would not tell her. Come on, viewers. Let’s cross our fingers that the romance between these two selfless, nice people does not fade before it even starts.
