Golden rainbow Episode 7 Recap
To what extent do you tolerate friendship that you thought to have been cemented with a bond that you all along thought was mutual until but in the end was eventually taken for granted because of selfishness and greed. Episodes 7 and 8 made me want to cradle aboji in my arms for being such a hero to his siblings and children. Another weep fest that I shared with Baek-won’s family.
After picking up things at the market, Baek-won thanked Young-hye for the presents she bought for the family, but they were halted by the arrival of the gangsters chasing Young-hye. She tried running away but they grabbed Baek-won leaving her no choice but to see the big boss.
Jin-ki met with Han-joo to discuss the gold smuggling business to the latter’s dismay, but Jin-ki reasoned how he will be blamed because the company is going bankrupt and asked him to do it one last time for him. Han-joo argued how he was jailed for him to get to college and that he studied so he can live a decent life, but the former pleaded for him to agree for the sake of his family too, but Jin-ki refused and painfully told him how he was full of regret knowing he has sent him to college and he ended up so greedy like that. He warned him to stop his evil venture less he will lose him as his brother.
Man-won was forced to work with Jin-ki’s minion threatening him of further danger if he won’t cooperate by reminding him of his rcorded brawling incident. When Han-joo arrived home, Baek-won delivered Young-hye’s problem as she was being questioned by the chairman. She was demanded to pay the
interest and the money she stole, and when she can’t assure the chairman of her answer, the chairman ordered her to be dragged out, but she quickly broke a vase and put it on her neck and forcedly negotiated with chairman bringing her late husband’s company as a leverage. She told him to let her go or she will just kill herself right there and then. Her cheekyness won over, thus their connection to one day claim Golden Fishery was sealed.
The children were all happy at ajumma’s presents and were all wishing to have them as their mother. Jin-ki’s right hand showed Man-won’s video and convinced his boss to use it to make Han-joo work for them, but his minute conscience refused the idea telling him that it will be done for him and his pledged brother if he learned how they used his children.
Han-joo stared at a picture with Young-hye while worrying what happened to her while she narrated her sob story to the chairman who upon bearing her tale wanted to be on board in her revenge to her ex mother-in-law and claiming their company.
Baek-won and Young-won saw Uk-jo and Se-ryun ajumma emerging from the same room and tried to lie to the children that they were just discussing something since last night. Han-joo saw the children’s interrogation and Young-won mjsed how Uncle Uk-jo told him that when a woman and a man stays in a room they are buikding a wall together. Kehkeh so cute Young-wonie.
At school, Chun-won was praised by getting the top score as Do-young continued feigning stupidity getting the lowest mark. He was summoned to the teacher’s offfice where Chun-won overheard his true rich identity. She then agreed to meet up with his brother who took advantage of her last time.
Han-joo saw Young-hye bossed around by the chairman’s minion ordering her to stay in the house, but worried about Han-joo’s family, she tried to bargain not to let her stay there to no avail. She refused the help he’s trying to offer and told him not to worry about her anymore and that she will be staying for a while in the house but will leave eventually.
Uk-jo received the news that he was fired from his safekeeping activities and rushed to meet Jin-ki who confirmed the decision. Jin-ki commanded him to persuade Han-joo to help them or else he will be living like a rat.
Against Man-won’s conviction, he did the task given to him by Jin-ki’s men. Baek-won arrived and received the news that Young-hye came who was being sympathy-wooed by Chun-won. Baek-won made Young-hye promised to take care of herself as she explained to her that she should not worry about her.
Han-joo confirmed with Uk-jong about Jin-ki’s dealing and in trying to urge him to join the Japan deal, he slipped and muttered how Jin-ki sent his children to the orphanage to obtain the film in their recent debacle.
Jin-ki waited for Han-joo by the seaside and was greeted by his punch and not so bromantic confrontation. Han-joo ranted how he should have not sent him to school and shoild have just made him a person, but Jin-ki remained firm in his covetous nature. Han-joo severed his brotherly ties with him as Jin-ki pleaded him to help him one last time.
Baek-won and Chun-won waited for Do-young and his brother and were surprised when they recognized his face. The vile brother tried maneuvering his evil nature again but feisty Baek-won shoved him off protecting her sister and friend.
Do-young apologized for not having known what his hyung did and Chun-won left for them to have their proper sweet 16 date. They played, ate cotton candy, sang at a noraebang and was so happy but Do-young as expected was beaten up by his brother when he get home.
Grandma-chairman witnessed the brawling and asked Tae-young to see him. She lectured her of how someday the company might be taken away from him by Do-young if he kept putting strength to his fist and not to his head. She reminded him of how she worked hard to make the company the way it was right now, and with the rate of how he’s growing as a person, she won’t ever give the company to him.
Aboji suited his mopey suit while drinking soju and thought about what has been happening with his life. He asked Baek-won if she also yearns to have a rich father who can buy nice clothes and yummy food, but raising a daughter well Baek-won assured him, how he is rich because she and her siblings are his wealth.
Grandma-chairman wandered at the same same place where Baek-won is selling her fish and was rescued when ajumma fish sellers claimed that what she was selling was a faked sardine. She brought her to where she was raising her fishes thanking her for standing up for her and making all her fish be sold. Grandma’s admiration over Baek-won grew even more seeing her hardwork and talent.
Han-joo was halted by an ajumma and told him to not make his daughter do work too so he asked Baek-won to stop selling her fish and just study. Baek-won reasoned how she wanted to help him and Young-hye because she is good with them and because her younger siblings and him like her too. She further convinced him to be brave enough to asked Young-hye to stay with them.
Watanabe Chairman met with Jin-ki to confirm the validity of Young-hye’s promise. Jin-ki met up with Young-hye and castigated her for dealing with such a dangerous man. He put the weight of making her convince Han-joo of agreeing to do the Japan venture and made Man-won’s brawling tape as the last resort for him to join them.
Han-joo painfully watched the Man-won’s video and in fury grabbed Jin-ki’s collar coaxing him to admit he is behind all of it. Young-hye stepped in the room, and Jin-ki again begged him to do the job because it will endanger Young-hye.
Golden Rainbow Episode 8
Drained from anger and ungratefulness that were returned by his orphan siblings. Han-joo was left no choice but to help the mishap upon learning that the invested money for the smuggling business was stolen by Young-hye.
Young-hye apologized to Han-joo for the thing she has done and blamed it to the anger towards Kang Jung-sim that has been consuming her. Han-joo reminded her that when she holds grudge towards someone she will eventually be the same evil peros she hates but she replied how until now, she still sees her daughter in her dreams that’s why seeking revenge overrides her wanting to move on with her life. She pleaded with him not to go on board the boat and to let her handle her problem and to pardon her for living not the way he had hoped for.
Baek-won received a phone call from Do-young to make some free time after class tomorrow. Man-won and Il-won entered the room and Man-won pouted when he learned that Baek-won went to a date with her friend.
Aboji arrived home and straightened Man-won reiterating to him that he should never use his fist no matter how he wanted to help him. He added that as the eldest son, he should be responsible for his siblings. Man-won humbly accepted the chastening he got from his father and apologized for the deed he has done.
Young-hye asked Baek-won if she wanted her to stay in the house and she totally agreed even is she has to wait until Young-hye is done with her problems. Han-joo conceded with Jin-ki’s plan to Young-hye’s opposition, but he has already set his mind to it considering the weight of his children’s future.
Do-young reminded Baek-won to meet him after class at her fish farm as Se-ryun ajumma asked Uk-jo if he can give her some more of the cosmetics and bag for her and her friend and their sweet moment was interrupted when Han-joo entered the room. He told Uk-jo that he will do Jin-ki’s offer and asked him if he will go with him but declined after hearing his reason and realizing they can’t go together in case something worse happened, there has to be someone to stay for the kids.
Chun-won told Man-won about Baek-won meeting Do-young and added how she worried about her since she’s meeting the younger brother of the boy who tried to rape her.
Do-young met Baek-won and gave her his necklace telling her that she and her mother are the only people that gave him a happy time. Man-won arrived and almost punch Do-young but Baek-won stopped him. He asked her to stop meeting him but she justified how Do-young is a nice person and how he was always there for him during hard times.
Young-hye praised Il-won’s drawing as the rest of the children gathered and talked about how kf they are together hope and happiness will make them all feel better. Han-joo had a soju sessio with Man-won giving him the tape from Kwang-do and reminded him not to do it ever again as Man-won pledged his assurance. He told him to be responsible as be will be the head of the family if he won’t be around.
Last minute preparations for the Japan job order were discussed by Jin-ki and Kwang -do as Young-hye rushed to see Han-joo who will be sailing that rainy night. She embraced him and apologized formall the troubles she caused him. He made her pledge to return the money and forget her vengeance plans to which she agreed.
Aboji sailed through the stormy night and managed to get the smuggled gold bars by day time. Han-joo was caught by the port guards and was questioned by the police but they can’t make him admit his deed with lack of evidence.
Watanabe threatened Jin-ki of their agreement and ordered him to return the money and the interest they borrowed. Young-hye was dragged by Watanabe’s men as Jin-ki commanded Uk-jo to try to get the information on where he might have hidden the golden bars.
Jin-ki’s keen mind deduced the location from Uk-jo and Han-joo’s conversation recording and the former spoke with Uk-jo to reveal where Han-joo taught him how to dive.
Man-won and Baek-won sailed and dove for the items but they have to surpass the port inspection. They luckily passed it through the twin’s help and the items were transported successfully by Jin-ki’s men but a small gold bar inside a pollack was left behind causing the port guards to bring Man-won for questioning.
Han-joo arrived home and received the news of his son’s feat and dragged Uk-jo to the warehouse where the golds might have been bought. Unaware that Il-won was inside getting a lipstick to replace Young-hye’s lipstick which was broken by Shib-won, he put the warehouse on fire and learned late that his sickly son was inside. Baek-won rushed to find her younger brother inside and they both got caught by the fire as Han-joo painfully cried while holding his unconscious children dragged from his initial decision to do Jin-ki’s dirty job.
