Strong Woman Do Bong Soon Ep 12 Recap – “Help Me”
Min Hyuk dotingly offers more noodles to Bong Soon so she teases him on how many times has he done that gesture with other girls in the past. Min Hyuk replies how he never shared noodles with any girl because the girls she dated did not eat noodles since they are global beauties. Bong Soon smirks and mentions his father told her that he caused a lot of problems involving girls when he was young. He proudly affirms that news and narrates how he had to leave US due to foreigner girls fighting over his attention that he was so scared he might get abducted by them while walking in a park because of too much jealousy and passion.
Bong Soon sighs at her boss’ narcissism attack. Min Hyuk asks why she still calls him Mr. Ahn so he suggests thinking of what they should call each other when they are alone. She replies why the need for it when they are not dating so Min Hyuk’s face turns sour. He rants so everyone in the noodle house can hear how she has almost done everything a girlfriend does with her boyfriend except a few things and questions if what they are doing is still not dating. He gasps and covers his chest arriving to a conclusion how her idea of dating might be too forward, open-minded and different from him which annoyed Bong Soon. hahaha screencaps of their funny and cute noodle house convo below…
Omma mumbles how she feels strangely uneasy so aboji asks her to call Bong Soon. She replies not to worry about her as it is the neighborhood that is in danger. She notices Gook Doo omma’s book so aboji defends it from her evil gaze muttering how the book tells the solitary life of modern people and how he can empathize well with the character which most likely she cannot. That earned him omma’s fury so she preps up to give him another battering. Kyung Shim emerges from a bus and walks with her luggage in the neighborhood not knowing that psycho is trailing her. He stops her on her tracks, knocks her out and carries her leaving her baggage on the street. At another neighborhood, Hee Ji bumps with Gook Doo and the team searches the man in black who just vanished after following Hee Ji. Gook Doo assures Hee Ji to rest her woes since their team will protect her.
Min Hyuk walks Bong Soon home as the police siren wails in the neighborhood. Min Hyuk expresses anxiety over what’s happening to Bong Soon’s neighborhood. He places his hands on her shoulder and tells her that even if he knows she is strong and special, she is for him someone he wants to protect. Bong Soon holds his hands and soothes him to have no thoughts such as that since protecting is her expertise. She urges him to go home but he refuses not until she is safely inside their house.
Gook Doo and his team are frustrated on the failed operation. They deduce how they were lured to a different neighborhood through Gook Doo and Hee Ji’s connection and wonder what kind of monster they are dealing with. Chief orders each of the team members to check this and that but gives Gook Doo nothing to do.
Psycho drives his car with Kyung Shim tied at the back seat. He listens to his audio feed from the police station chatting about how the psycho seem to anticipate their moves well. Gook Doo remembers the camera gadgets he saw at psycho’s office and looks for a bugging device that psycho could have plotted inside the station. Chief visits the car junkyard and voices how his analog antenna feels psycho’s employee is an accomplice as psycho jails Kyung Shim with the other girls. He forces her to beg for her life so she weeps and feeds his crazy mind.
Bong Soon gets her phone to text Kyung Shim on when she will be coming back to Seoul not knowing that psycho is in possession of her phone. Bong Soon inadvertently reveals details about her secret power thinking that she was talking with Kyung Shim. Gook Doo checks on the corners and hidden places of their office and speaks about how the culprit might have secretly bugging them. Psycho mocks how they finally figured out that he outsmarted them after Gook Doo locates the hidden camera he set up when he voluntarily gave his statement as a witness. Psycho is approached by the old ajussi worker for his pay and is given instruction to starve the girls. He mutters that the police found out that he is the kidnapper so the game officially begins.
Min Hyuk sends a message to Bong Soon to check what she is doing. He reminds her not to go out roaming around in the neighborhood to which she agrees. He sends a cute good night bong-bong message complete with his animated face, and she replies with a good night min-min message with her cute face wrapped with a heart emoticon which sends Min Hyuk to love oblivion.
He smiles, kicks on the air, rolls on his bed, and replays her message to his heart content while he savor the sweet reply he just got from Bong Soon.
From his sweet night cap with Bong Soon, Min Hyuk wakes up from a bad dream of Bong Soon losing her strength and being choked by someone. Min Hyuk shows the Bong Soon game character he was working before and she is delighted at how he tweaked it.
Min Hyuk teases her how her initial drawing only needs a moustache and it will look like Super Mario so he is glad she liked it. He retorts how the character needs to be cool and soophisticated, but she argues how she wants it to be cute and innocent. Min Hyuk tells her to use her drawing so she relents and points out how the eyes are a bit big, but he counters how she has bigger and prettier eyes and apologizes for not being good at drawing. She suggests shortening the legs a little small bit to which Secretary Gong agrees muttering how the legs are too long for the character. Min Hyuk leaves for a meeting so Secretary Gong meets Bong Soon’s gaze and slaps his face voluntarily to punish him for commenting on her short legs.
Dressed in white robe, Baek Tak chumps on a boiled egg and is notified by his right hand that troublemaker-highschoolers are searching for him and that they gave them his phone number. On cue he receives a phone call from the leader asking for his whereabouts, but he refuses to entertain the rebellious student. Baek Tak recognizes the highschoolers are also on board the bus he is riding so he quickly escapes the scene before they can grasp it.
Bong Soon is surprised when Dong Byeong’s face pops up in front of her computer. He confirms if she is really going to present her game so she says yes and requests for his good feedback when she does it. He remarks how her lousy game will not progress and wonders how she got Min Hyuk’s heart when he is prettier, taller and richer than her. Bong Soon refuses to fetch him a coffee and lectures him on how it reflects badly on him. She adds that if he will insist they will have to continue their conversation from the conference room scaring him. Secretary Gong escorts him to leave the room as Bong Soon bows when he walks away.
Chief appeals to his superior that they got the wrong guy after the latter castigates them from not knowing the precinct was bugged. Chief is advised to let go of the case and he can only heave a sigh of frustration. Baek Tak arrives at a temple for spiritual cleansing and finds two of his men waiting for him. Bong Soon’s minions also go to the temple to follow Baek Tak who just chided his men for breaking the rules and leaving the hospital without proper discharge arrangement. Just then the highschool thugs make their presence known and shouts at them. They face each other as highschool-thug-boss demands why they tried to harm Bong Soon. Baek Tak calmly points out the boy’s rudeness but he insists on knowing the truth. The sidekicks step in to protect their boss as Jaws show his bare hand fighting skills. This frame is supposed to be trimmed so I’m going to cut this short. The Hindu monk prevents the looming fight and healed the troublemakers’ excessive fighting spirit. please let there be no thug long frames next episode
Bong Soon stretches happily after finishing her game proposal draft. She looks for Min Hyuk through Secretary Gong and was advised how he often roams around the building which unintentionally makes the employees anxious. She steps out to look for her boss and when Min Hyuk sees her approaching he calls her and leads her to the seminar room.
He mutters how they are alone in that room so she rides and ask what he is intending to do. He smiles and replies how he knew she is expecting something to happen which she denies. He inches closer to her so she steps back to a wall where he is trapped by his arms and his gaze. He whispers he will protect her so close so that nothing in the world can touch her. He asks if she has already decided to be with her, and when she answers back with a twinkling smile on her lips and her eyes, Min Hyuk beams back and tells her that he knows her answer because he can see through her.
Elated Min Hyuk is in cloud 9 and he rubs her hair because he does not know what to do with the sudden burst of happiness in his heart. He holds his heart when she giggled at his reaction so he complains how she can charmingly simper like that giving him heart flutters when they are alone in that place. She continues to grin and motions to leave with him, but he moves her back on the wall with his hands holding her shoulder in place. He peers at her lovingly, weakening all our hearts, and inches even closer to her. She closes her eyes and waits for the peck, but Min Hyuk gives her a soft kiss of respect.
Min Hyuk takes Bong Soon to a seaside workshop, but appears like more of a date for them. *wink She starts discussing her game while they are inside a room overlooking the sea. She blabs on possible twists they can add on the character not aware that her boyfriend is just transfixed at her presence.
Min Hyuk can’t bear the steam of being alone with her anymore so he proposes to go out to refresh in the seaside. Bong Soon declines it since he told her how looking at the sea can give her ideas on the game. Min Hyuk is perplexed on how she can still work fine given their situation while he is feeling tortured of the things he wants to do with her since they are alone.
Min Hyuk dotingly watches as Bong Soon enjoys the sea breeze. They take selfies together and move to the beach where she teases and plays with him by splashing water like a child.
Min Hyuk finds a stick and draws half of a big heart on the beach. He calls her and asks if she can go to him. Bong Soon gets another stick to complete the heart to answer his question. She stares back at his loving gaze as he lowers his head and kisses her softly on her lips. kyaaaaaaaa She closes her eyes and savor his kiss as the sea waves rustle in that picture perfect beach.
Omma gossips with her friends how she thinks Bong Soon is already dating her boss so she will pray in the temple for 100 days. Min Hyuk drives her home and halts her when she is about to open her door. He steps out and opens her door with his crazy pose making her grin.
Bong Soon asks if the workshop is over. She mumbles how she has to stay up all night to prepare for her proposal tomorrow. Min Hyuk sheepishly apologizes for taking her time unintentionally. Then they play their usual you-go-first scene so Bong Soon motions to go inside the house but Min Hyuk stops her quick. He peers at her curious face and tells her how he always want to see her, but there are moments when he cannot see her face when he closes his eyes so it makes him sad. He mutters to let her memorize her face for a while and thanks her for coming in his life. She smiles at his heartfelt confession and he lets her go inside their house. He whispers how he misses her already when she is out of his sight. ahhhh i ship both of you already
The moment she enters the room, Bong Soon gets to her proposal but she battles with the memories of the heart fluttering moment she just had with Min Hyuk.
She straightens herself out right away to focus but when Bong Ki knocks on her door, her good mood emanates evidently as she gleefully attends to his brother if he needs something or if he wants to eat but he declines bewildered at his twin’s strange sweetnes and just opt to cook ramyun so she can go ahead with her business. He asks when Kyung Shim will be coming back as he wants to eat fishcake soup, but she is also not sure when she will be coming back. He cringes when she bids him goodnight with her smiling puppy face.
Bong Soon checks on Kyung Shim and feels weird on her reply to her message so she calls her but it was not answered. She calls Gook Doo to trace Kyung Shim using the smart watch as she senses something strange happening. She goes back to her conversations with Kyung Shim as psycho is doing the same thing. She asks her to call but she replies that she is busy so she will call later.
Bong Soon tries to calm herself and asks a question to confirm her suspicion that she has not been talking to Kyung Shim just as Gook Doo finds Kyung Shim’s luggage with a bum in a subway. The police questions the bum who took Kyung Shim’s things and was given a reply that he does not have a phone so he was not able to report it. Chief decides to search the junk yard without warrant but the police director steps in and warns that they will all be in trouble if they will proceed with their plan. The team members ignore him and they head straight to meet the psycho.
While Min Hyuk ponders on his Bong Soon, she runs in the neighborhood worried about Kyung Shim. He calls her but she did not pick it up so he sends her a message that they can reschedule the presentation. Bong Soon rushes to meet Gook Doo in the junk yard and he chides her for going there. She tells him how she figured out that Kyung Shim is taken because the psycho does not know about Kyung Shim’s dog that died last year. She runs to check the backyard but Gook Doo stops her as the team head out not getting any clues from where the ladies might be hidden.
Bong Soon is back in her room and sobs in frustration that she disregards Min Hyuk’s message checking if she is already asleep. He worries if she is sleep walking so he keeps himself busy with working on a necklace for her.
Just then Bong Soon receives a video from the psycho showing Kyung Shim in his lair. Kyung Shim warns her not to find her so psycho slams her down. He cautions her not to notify the police and taunts her to find them herself or her friend will die. Bong Soon trembles, weeps and gropes on what she will do. She goes to Min Hyuk’s house crying out for him to help her.
Episode 12 Quick Thoughts
Park Hyung Sik’s adam’s apple is damn sexy. lol I am already having a separation anxiety since we are almost at the end because I will miss bongbong and minmin couple dearly. I have these thoughts on how first quarter pretty dramas tend to be forgotten when a last quarter beautiful drama appears. That won’t happen with Do Bong Soon for me. I think I will have to include it on my resurrection video playlist. The rewatch value is strong because it is an easy watch and yet it is brimming with feel good mushy scenes and adorable cuteness. -jediprincess
