And here we are at the finale! Youngho slides the ring on her and pulls her close, both over the moon. He drives her to Hyunwoo’s place, while she smooths her hand over the ring over and over again. She mutters that he might call her wicked but he’s waaay more wicked. She can’t believe he hid the ring in the scarf. He corrects that the scarf comes with the ring but she doesn’t see it that way.

The episode starts with an extended flashback of how Jooeun and Youngho meet and how far they’ve gone. All that’s left is the next step!
Youngho mutters that she’s waay too close for his definition of a warm night and she says that she always holds her bear ‘You Bastard’ this close when she sleeps. He fights for composure,mumbling that she’s quite wicked. Youngho does his best impression of a rock until she starts toying with his collar and finally gives in.

February 2015. Youngho reminisces in bed, having lost count of how many times he’s woken from a dream of Jooeun to a hospital ceiling. Days pass as he knits (!! how hot is that?) a pink scarf, and thinks back to doing the same time as a child to pass time in the hospital. Chief Min stops by and little Youngho says that the scarf is for his mother, who Min informs him, in on her way to see him. Unfortunately, that very night she dies in a car accident and Youngho hears Chief Min informing his father of it (a scene we saw in an earlier episode). His younger and older self knit side by side, lost in grief.

We start out in the hospital where Chief Min calls Youngho, and we hear what he says this time. His sigh of relief upon hearing that Youngho is home is adorable, and Min Byungwook proceeds to explicitly warn Youngho not to leave the house as Namchul’s about to go on a rampage. Youngho however, is more concerned about Joonsung’s welfare and heads out. Interestingly, Hyeran also follows her brother in her car as though aware of what he’s about to do. The rest of the scene proceeds as it did last week except just as Youngho drives in his between Namchul’s and Joonsung’s, Hyeran sidewipes her brother’s car. Joonsung howls in grief to discover a severely wounded Youngho while Namchul does the same at discovering a severely wounded Hyeran. Chief Min rushes on the scene and tries to calmly remove Youngho from the car and bandange his wounds but loses his composure as Youngho remains unresponsive.

Youngho strides confidently into the hall as Jooeun and the boys watch him from behind. He walks up the steps to the podium with quick sure steps, looking into Jooeun’s eyes from across the hall and announces that he’s the new president of Gahong.

Choi Namchul (Choi Haera’s brother, whose name I finally decided to google) tells Wooshik that it’s better to strie while the iron is hot. Wooshik looks conflicted for a moment before picking up the phone and telling Go PD to broadcast the scoop he has on John Kim. Youngho is mobbed by reporters upon arriving home but doesn’t show even the smallest hint of surprise, having seen this coming. Grandma on the other hand is furious, while Youngho’s father looks worried. Chief Min gets angry for the first time and yells at the hapless minion on the othre end of the phone for not informing them of this. He drives through the crowd of reports to the bridge Youngho loves going to for brooding sessions. Byungwook (Chief Min’s name) notes Youngho’s compsure and asks if he expected this to happen. Youngho sighs, saying that he’d already decided to drink from the bitter cup anyway.

We rewind to Youngho confessing that he’s dating Jooeun. Everyone’s reactions follow as they did last episode, and Hyunwoo drags both lovebirds with her for a more thorough interrogation.She hilariously starts off with his name. Jooeun tries to interrupt but Hyunwoo’s having none of it. She asks whether his house is under his name.
Youngho: Pretty much
Hyunwoo inquires about his job and Youngho gets elbowed by Jooeun and says that he doesn’t have a definite one as of yet. Hyunwoo sighs that he’s unemployed.

We start off a couple hours prior to Youngho’s collapse. He sits in his father’s office as the paperwork for the transferal of the company to Youngho’s name is drawn up. His father comments on Youngho’s full recovery and by comments I mean that he simply brings it up and says “Good work”. [High praise coming from him I suppose. Would it kill him to be happier about it?] His father then warns Youngho of all the eyes that are on him now and to watch his every action as he takes the position that his mother also held before him. Youngho agrees to everything and the papers are signed. A bit of emotion peeks through his father’s stone visage as he says that he can finally face his wife in heaven .Youngho doesn’t say anything but looks stricken.

We flashback to about 30 minutes earlier when Youngho sets off for a meeting with his new legal representative on his own. Too bad Chief Min already predicted Youngho would do so and has his fleet of cars assembled in fornt of Youngho’s garage. Youngho peevishly agrees to let Chief Min chauffeur him but insists that they take his car. These two are so cut honestly. During the drive Min reassures him that they’re only taking preventative legal measures in case word gets out. Youngho nods but is too busy rereading Jooeun’s texts from the previous night where she thanks him for all he’s done. He then sends her the messages we saw yesterday and she replies as she did then. He texts her once more to say that there’s something he has to tell her and to call her right after she’s done at work. This is the text Jooeun misses. Things play out as they did last episode with Jooeun hyperventilating and leaving, and Youngho following. She thinks back to all he said, about being as secretive as Batman, about having been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and about how sharing a suite room with him was like traveling to outer space. Youngho tells her to calm down and tries to check her pulse but she shoves his hand away, saying that he really was out of her league. Soojin’s followed and tries to see what’s happening when Chief Min politely leads her away. I like him even more now. Continue reading “Oh My Venus Ep 8 Recap (and can I hug him too?)”
