Recap Epis 2: Roy Fun Tawan Duerd
Ryu finally comes out of the cave chasing after his woman but at the same time not really redeeming himself. Mayumi have to play a bit hard to get. I think the pace this is going is pretty good. This lakorn can be watch casually… but there isn’t really anything memorable for me. The scenes that many fans spazz about I’m just indifferent. But the fans really “FIN” the scenes between the pra’nang which is what the producer wanted.
Mayumi stop looking after her patients just to go see that it isn’t an emergency but just that Ryu Onitsuka is bringing her flower, reuniting after 7 years. He hopes that she is not angry for his lack of visitation. Mayumi question, “Why should I be angry? We talked and had an understanding”. Misunderstanding her reply, Ryu thanks her for understanding and says that he still remember her favorite flower, daisy. Mayumi accepts the flower only to throw the bouquet in the trash. Mayumi gives Ryu a death glare while Ryu doesn’t look so sympathetic. LOL
Ryu goes looking for Mayumi and remember the bridge in his dream. It’s dejavoo. Ryu and Mayumi meets half way on the bridge. Ryu thinks that he must have done a lot to hurt her in the past 7 years. She retorts that whatever he has done has no effect in her life. Mayumi is going to walk away but Ryu stops her because he wants to discuss about the engagement date the seniors had promised their engagement. Mayumi thanks Ryu for following with the elders’ promise but she has no intention of accepting it. Other than that he already has someone else so that release them from this fake engagement. Ryu denies having anyone else. Mayumi recites to Ryu about his news with his new girl, Akiko Kudo, the actress. Ryu refutes these gossip that tabloids are just making things up. Mayumi pleads him to let her go because everything is too late. Their relationship ends 7 years ago and everything is just a dream. Their engagement will never happen. Mayumi walks away hurt.
On her way home, Mayumi gets kidnapped only to know it was by Ryu’s plan. He takes her to a private dinner. She’s angry that it is all Ryu’s plan. He tells her he orders food. Mayumi wants to go home because she does not want to stay with him. However, Ryu refuses to let her go. He wants to surprise his soon soon fiance. Mayumi is not impress with his surprise. She thinks they are both free after he chose his woman. Ryu continues to deny having other woman. But Mayumi doesn’t care and wants him to let her go. Taichi comes in with tea and explains how healthy the tea are.
Outside, Taksu and Seigi gossips about their boss. Taksu thinks Mayumi is very angry at their Soreal but Seigi says that the couple he sees argue everyday has so many kids. Taichi comes out telling them two to get in their position to protect Soreal. Just let Soreal takes care of his own heart.
Seigi is confuse why Soreal didn’t bring many bodyguards, and coming so far to surprise Mayumi as well. Taksu asks if Seigi ever know about being romantic. If Soreal brings a lot of people, it’s not romantic when they are all over the restaurant. Seigi teases that it is true, even seeing Taksu’s face already makes him upset.
Taichi wants to check out the food in case there is poison or weapons. The owner vouch that the waitress is trusted since she works there for a long time.
In the private room, Mayumi still refuses to eat with him. Ryu teases her that being angry meaning she loves him. That’s the old saying. Mayumi says that time changes, the past is the past, so please do not big-headed. He continues to tease her with a smile that he really wants her to fall for him. They should set up a date for their engagement, wedding and a honeymoon. Mayumi asks if he’s not afraid Akiko will be sad. Ryu says that if Mayumi doesn’t care, she wouldn’t be so spiteful and sarcastic to him. In that moment, a random guy opens their door and apologizes for coming to the wrong door. But really he’s just a weak assassin. Mayumi warns Ryu when she saw the guy with his knife.
Ryu fight the baddie while Mayumi just watch from the back. Without weapons Ryu uses chopstick. LOL. Ryu wins this round but the assassin poison himself with cyanide. Ryu couldn’t extract anything from him.
At the police station, Ryu reports the situation and explains how the bad guys take cyanide so no information will leak out. The police look down at the report gives another scenario that perhaps the one who plan this is Ryu himself to make it like someone wants to kill him… Taichi upset at that false accusation. Ryu tells Taichi to not be rude. Taichi asks where is Hiro because usually Hiro takes care of the special case. Ken explains that Hiro is oversea with Masaru for work related and this case is not special enough for Hiro.
Since Ryu knows he won’t get anything out of this case, left. Seigi, Taksu and Taichi is annoy that Masaru’s subordinate is pretty bad. Ryu notices that Mayumi is pretty quiet so he asks if she’s scared. She isn’t scared… So he asks if today’s event is going to make her afraid to stay with him. She retorts that she won’t be the woman staying with him. He argues back that if she isn’t going to be the woman then why did she asks her father to learn martial arts? Her excuse is that she likes it. It has nothing to do with him. Plus, she wasted the whole day with him, she wants to go home.
Takao angry that his assassin miss the chance to kill Ryu. Takao’s right hand man says that they take the cyanide so no way information is extracted. Takao says that If the assassin killed themselves when failed, then what would a right hand man need to do? The first miss is going an experience but the second time is due to stupidity. Takao wants his right hand man to take care of all evidence so nothing can lead it back to them.
Instead of taking Mayumi back home, Ryu takes Mayumi to a ramen restaurant. Mayumi wants to go home so bad and Ryu teases that what kind of doctor only knows one word, home. She tells him to stop imitating her. So in a jokingly serious note, he wants to continue this date because it was ruined earlier. They haven’t eaten anything so he thinks that their hearts are on the same page. So, their stomach must be the same. He is hungry, she has to be hungry. At that moment, the server serve their ramen. For Ryu, instead of having two bowls, he order one because they are a sweet couple. LOL. He had her hold his chopstick so that he can chant a ramen love spell…. “I hope Doctor Mayumi will be infatuate and fall in love with me.” She thinks he’s being nonsensical. He keeps teasing her with the ramen but she refuses to eat. He lectures her for being a bad doctor. How could her patients believe her if she doesn’t take care of herself. He tells her the strategy to eat make the ramen tastes better. When she snatches the ramen away from him, he calls her rude. LOL. They start fighting over ramen.
Ryu sends Mayumi home. Her family is thankful. Megumi is happy that her future brother-in-law takes good care of her sister… that way they don’t have to worry about her. Mayumi looks at her sister with an unhappy face. Ryu returns the necklace she threw away 7 years ago. She isn’t going to take it until she turns around and sees her father. Being the good girl she is accepts it.
In the room, Mayumi talks to the necklace that she isn’t an object and will not allow Ryu to use her as a decorate flower. She wants to throw it but change her mind. She wants to know what Ryu really wants from her?
Ryu looks happy and even enjoy the banter he had with Mayumi. She acts unwelcome but he looks content. Seigi asks why Soreal just didn’t tell Mayumi he didn’t disappear for 7 years. He was always with her. Ryu wants to know if not knowing the answer will make him lose sleep? Taksu humorously saying that no matter what position they sleep in, they still don’t understand. Since they don’t understand and want to know, Ryu purposely doesn’t tell them… instead he wishes that they can’t sleep tonight.
The next day, Koji, Kazuma and Masato inform Ryu that they found Sou’s wife and child but they’re all burnt and dead. Their chances of clearing Ryu’s name is going to be difficult because she is the real witness and evidence. The three seniors worry for Ryu because the event last night tells them how dangerous it is for Ryu. They tell Ryu not to go eat at an unfamiliar restaurant and one where they have no guards. Ryu sigh that he went to eat not for a battle. He knows they are worry about him because of his situation now so he will be more careful in the future.
Ryu looks at the picture of him with Takeshi and thinks back when Takeshi told him that being Onitsuka Soreal can change a person so much… one day Ryu will understands. Flashback to when Ryu went to Thailand and talk with Takeshi. Takeshi is going to have his third child (They sure get busy). They’re still sweet and corny. LOL. Anyways, Ryu asks Takeshi if Takeshi will go back to help him. Takeshi declines. Ryu asks, “What if I ask you to? To go help carry on what our ancestor left for us?” Takeshi tells Ryu that he made a choice. There is no more Takeshi Onitsuka. There is only Tawan who is Praewdao’s husband and a father to his kids. The battle last time almost make him lose the woman he loves more than his life, so he chose to follow his heart. Ryu really admires Takeshi’s courage to pick his heart… and decides that he is the one who is a coward.
Koji is there so he gives Ryu some advice that, “Some people lives for love while some sacrifice their entire life for duty. But there are still some people that will use love as a motivation to fight the duty they are responsible for.” He continues that humans have choices and it doesn’t need to be only one choice. This is something for Ryu to think over.
Mayumi is talking to her friend while they are working at the hospital about Mayumi and Ryu’s situation last night. Mayumi doesn’t think there is any spark as her friend suggested because both are just doing their own duty. Her friend teases her if Yuji is a duty or she’s following her heart. At the same time Yuji also visits her at the hospital. Seriously, I think the men in here are thick. LOL. They do not know when a girl is not into them.
Since Yuji is here, Mayumi wants to return his coat. He offers that she can keep it but all she does is smile without replying back. Yuji brings up the subject of her and Ryu getting attack last night. He is working finding who is behind it. She thanks him. Yuji continues to babble about how he wish he was the one there to protect her instead of Ryu, her fiance. He apologizes for offending her fiance. Mayumi tells him it’s okay because Ryu isn’t important to her. This makes Yuji happy and he let her knows it too. He asks to take her out to eat this evening but she declines. She has to stay for emergency night shift. She can’t go out to eat and excuse herself.
Since Mayumi can’t go out to eat with Yuji… he annoyingly plan to eat with her in the hospital by bringing his own lunch (is he not a busy policeman?) Mayumi’s friend really cheer for these two. Taksu and Seigi is also spying on Mayumi too. Yuji brags that he cook all those food because he learned it when he was young. His father never helps him anything even when he enters the police force. Mayumi thinks that his father should be proud of him. Yuji wish that is that case and not seeing his father’s cold eyes like today. Mayumi pities him.
At the Onitsuka house, Taksu and Seigi reenact what Mayumi and Yuji were doing. It is an exaggerated version. LOL.
“I will morally support Captain Yuji”, Taksu as Mayumi. Seigi imitated Yuji, “Can morally support become the owner of my heart?” Of course these two are trying to annoy Ryu with exaggerating a scene that didn’t even happen. Ryu is suspicious why Yuji is still visiting the hospital when he’s already healed. Seigi says that Yuji needs to heal his heart. Ryu is stress out, so he told them not to pressure him. But they only want to be his warning voice.
Haru is inform that Ryu Onitsuka is being investigated for killing Osamu but Haru refuses to believe Ryu will do such a thing. He is willing to help Ryu Onitsuka from this bad ordeal because Onitsuka family is revere by this town. He knows who he wants to be friend with.
Taichi sends candy to Daiki’s house. It’s made by the Onitsuka household. Daiki thanks Soreal for being detail and knows who likes what. Daiki feels bad that he wouldn’t be able to help Soreal welcome a foreigner businessman. Taichi says that it is fine since they have Koji, Kazuma and Masato. Akiko overhears this and delusional that she is probably is planning something.
Anyway, Akiko crawls her way in the Onitsuka house and serve the men tea. Akiko thinks that she is helping Ryu but really everyone is annoy at her daring manner! They don’t say it out loud but their expression says a million thing. The only one impress by her is Frank, the foreigner. Ryu is not shy to let her know later too that what she is doing he doesn’t want it. She thinks she is doing him a favor by helping him. But he thinks that his business, he can handle it. But she only wants to pay him back for helping her. He says, “I never think that generosity is gratitude.” Meaning his generosity towards her, he doesn’t need her gratitude back. He is actually pretty cold towards her. He tells Taichi to send her back home without a second look at her as she leaves.
Taichi warns Akiko not to be so delusional because it might come back to bite her. Of course she doesn’t care what Taichi said because she believes herself to be above Taichi. And she doesn’t care about Ryu’s fiance who he never see for 7 years. Taichi tells her Ryu brought Mayumi for a romantic dinner which showcases how important Mayumi is to him. That is evident enough for Akiko to stop being delusional. But Akiko refuses to believe it.
In Akiko’s room, she refuses to step back. She thinks the only person who should be with Ryu is her. LOL. She’s confident.
Taichi finally have a solo scene! What is up with men in here always looking at pictures? There is seriously no creativity. Taichi has always liked Akiko and never changes his mind. He thinks back to the time, he saw Akiko crying for her dead bird that got bitten by a cat. He tells her he will be her playing friend but she says he’s not a bird. However, even when he was young, he always promise to do everything for her.
The three musketeer talks about Ryu’s case and how people still revere the Onitsuka even with bad rumors. Koji says a name doesn’t create overnight so it wouldn’t be gone overnight. Plus, they’re suspicious of the gun use against Ryu. It looks like the model that the cops took away 7 years ago as evident… they also burned the rest infront of every Onitsuka member. So, this must be a setup by using those gun. They’re sure of it.
Ryu and Hiro meet up secretly at a shrine. Haru is also there too! Did he stalk them? LOL. Ryu asks Hiro to check if all the guns they took as evidence 7 years ago is still there. Hiro asks if Ryu thinks it’s the cops that kill Osamu? Who knows, the only way they can tell is making sure every guns are where they are. Haru overhears this so it’s his luck. His fortune also says he will be lucky.
Mayumi returns home to find her sister forcing a flower and gift to her. Mayumi thinks that it might have been from Ryu so she tells her sister to throw it away. Turns out, Yuji is inside her house waiting for her. Dang, his stalking is creepy. I mean they’re not even friends yet! He already is in her house. HAHA. Look at his face when he heard she wants to throw the gifts away. It looks like his bipolar is going to come out. Mayumi apologizes because she didn’t know it belongs to him. He is happy she accepts the gift when she knows it’s his. He wants her to eat this sweet gourmet to help refresh her body because she works too hard. However, this type of gourmet is only serve for special occasion such as wedding or a ritual ceremony. He sounds crazy by answering that talking to her is a special occasion and he wants to get to know her better. Mayumi doesn’t look that happy and she honestly tells him not to waste his time with her. Dissatisfy, Yuji asks if it’s about her fiance? She doesn’t want to drag a third party in because she really only wants to concentrate on her work. Yuji tells her that the past is history… but the future is a mystery so why should she put a barrier to a future? HAHAH. He’s crazy to suggest his meeting with Mayumi is fate. Of course, he likes a girl that is beautiful, smart and to like that person is not a coincident. He suggests that there are many kind of friendship so, she should open her heart and at least allow him to be her friends. Mayumi didn’t give an answer. She is confuse and contemplating though.
I guess she can’t choose because she does have a choice now, doesn’t she? She has to compared the gifts! HAHA. Mayumi’s father asks when she has become so close to the Captain? She says Yuji just came to thank her for helping him. They are just friends. Her father says he knows men well… when they ask to be friend it’s only an excuse to get closer to the girl they like. She is also Onitsuka Soreal’s fiance so she has to be in propriety. Onitsuka Soreal wouldn’t be happy if knows about this. Mayumi gets annoy at the mention as if Ryu owns her. So she puts on a biting remark to her dad that “Ryu is just my soon to be fiance. He doesn’t own my life. He can’t stop me from being friends with anyone.”
Ryu is reminiscing his past with Mayumi and smile so bright about it. But his happiness is short lived when he spot the seal which reminds him of the gun. A bigger problem is ahead of him. Don’t be too happy.
Hiro tries checking the gun as Ryu asked but is interrupted because Masaru wants to see him. Hiro’s meeting with Masaru doesn’t go well because the higher up, according to Masaru has given Hiro a month vacation. They also removed him from investigating Osamu’s murder because he has a close relationship with Onitsuka. After he returns to work, he will be working at administration office instead. Yuji is going to be the next person doing the investigation. Yuji seems like a good guy, right? lol I guess he is just mess up later.
As we know Haru wants a treaty and become friends with Onitsuka. He visits the Onitsuka family without a noticed. Ryu apologizes for their lack of formal welcome since they don’t know Haru is coming. Haru doesn’t mind because they’re just basically family. HAHA Haru also have a gift for Onitsuka Soreal too. It turns out to be the gun. Koji and Ryu is suspicious of Haru’s intention so they ask what Haru wants from them? Haru says his intention is to let Onitsuka knows where they stand. Onitsuka and Miura should be friends.
Koji, Ryu, Kazum and Masato holds a private meeting if they should trust Haru. They’re contemplating whether Haru is honest and not trying to set them up too. Koji thinks that since Haru is having problem with Mitsawa, their only other choice of backup is the Onitsuka. They think Haru is brave to come himself to gain the Onitsuka trust. Ryu says that every human tries to find the best way to survive but they should still keep an eye on Miura. They cannot afford to be careless.
Ryu asks his cooks to prepare food for Mayumi. He writes some really corny message to Mayumi. He wants her to try it. One food has it’s own message: “I will never distant from you” and “I miss you.” Ryu enters the office saying he feels refresh just seeing her smiling. This ruin Mayumi’s mood. lol Ryu wants to take care of her but she doesn’t want it. He teases her by calling her “tee ruk”. She looks like she’s going to smile but chose not to because she’s suppose to be mad at him. So she told him off. Ryu continues to follow and annoy Mayumi. He even tries to gain point from her patients.
Mayumi runs to her friend for help. She wants to get rid of Ryu. But OMG. He is annoying with his chicken voice. So, the two girls decide to play a prank on him. They need his help by operating the dead body. The corpse patient has a prostate gland cancer and they want to cut it for research. Ryu hearing where they’re going to cut it excuse himself since he doesn’t want to do the dirty work.
Ryu also hold a party for the patients at the hospital and announcing himself as Mayumi’s fiance. Ryu brags about how his snacks and candies are sweet and delicious. One patient asks what about the one serving? Being funny Ryu, he’s like “The person who serve is delicious too but you can’t taste him since Mayumi owns him already.” Mayumi is mad though because he might bring something that the patients cannot eat. However, Ryu isn’t that dumb, of course he does his research. Mayumi feels salty.
Mayumi drags Ryu outside not impress with what he is doing. She wants him out of her life. But he says what is wrong with him wanting people to be happy? She says this is a hospital not an amusement park. He tells her to take a deep breath because that will make her feel better. He calls her tee ruk and she tells him to not call her that. He teases her for being so mean when they’re not even married yet. She asks what will happen when they get married? He’s like, then I will agree to everything.
Ryu’s facial expression while playing the koto is funny. He fake he doesn’t know how to play it and everyone is like omg, he needs to be done with it. Mayumi is quite embarrassed by it. So, anyways, Mayumi take over the koto and everyone enjoys. This scene is too long!
Taichi praises Mayumi’s skill at koto. A nurse asks when there will be a good news for Ryu and Mayumi. Mayumi announces there will be no wedding for Ryu and her. They are free from each other since 7 years ago. Ryu says he is back and he will do anything for her to marry him. She tells him he will never win her. What he says make sense, “love isn’t about winning or losing. At the end she will open her heart to him.”
Masaru is mad that the gun disappear.
Koji sounds happy today Soreal is gaining point from Mayumi. Ryu sighs that she isn’t giving in easily yet. Koji advice him to continue to fight because this kind of thing takes time. Koji just hopes Ryu doesn’t lose hope yet. If Ryu dares to begin, success is near. Ryu wouldn’t give up easily. Of course Koji says there is only one person who he will give in too. They talk about the gun and what they should do with it. They’ll wait to talk to Hiro about it.
