Mine episode 3 recap

Another day, another drama.

Mine episode 3 starts off with Han Jin-ho appointed as the president of the company. Not only is everyone else surprise, so is he. As Hi-soo mulls over the decision after an awkward meeting with her sister and mother-in-law, Kang Ja-kyeong comes over with jasmine tea and asks her whether she is disappointed with the outcome and that her husband wasn’t chosen. Hi-soo says that she is a bit disappointed but she trusts her husband. Ja-kyeong, however, goes on to say that Han Ji-yong might not be telling her everything and that, there’s more than meets the eyes. Hi-soon agrees with her.

Later on, Hi-soo confronts her husband and asks him why he would take away the opportunity from Ha-joon and whether he loves him. Ji-yong tells her that of course, he loves him but he is still an illegitimate child. He knows how it feels like to be in the midst of something like this and he turned the opportunity down only because he didn’t want to hurt his son. Ji-yong indicates that she is doing all this to get the crown. Hi-soo is visibly upset and leaves.

Like everyone else, Jung Seo-hyun is also wondering why Han Jin-ho was chosen to lead the company instead of the more able Han Ji-yong in Mine episode 3. She calls Kim Yu-hyeon over and asks her to spy on Mother, Han Ji-ho, Han Suk-chul and Soo-hyuk’s bedrooms. The latter is taken aback but says nothing. We later get to know that Seo-hyun has given her one million won.

Kang Ja-kyeong continues to overstep her boundaries and today she decides to go into Ji-yong’s office. While there, she hears Hi-soo comes in and quickly makes up a lie. Hi-soo is confused, but decides to not say anything and asks her to keep Ha-joon away from Cadenza.

Later in Mine episode 3, Jin-hee’s cream bun scandal refuses to go away and Mother is furious. She calls Hi-soo over to scream at her and the outspoken Hi-soo lets her, only to protect Ha-joon. Jin-hee, on the other hand, is followed by reporters who ask her uncomfortable questions. She, unfortunately, has no answers for them and apologises. Han Jin-ho, on the other hand, feels alienated at work whereas people fawn over Han Ji-yong.

Poor Hi-soo, however, cannot seem to catch a break. As Ha-joon comes back from school, she asks him for a hug. However, he disregards her and goes off to his room. Kang Ja-kyeong asks Hi-soo to not follow and to give him some space.

Hi-soo and Ji-yong discuss about how Ha-joon has been distant from her. The latter tells her that they have Kang Ja-kyeong to take care of Ha-joon but Hi-soo tells him that she’s just there to help them. Ji-yong seems dismissive which reeks weird and fortunately Hi-soo thinks so too. She later finds Ja-kyeong in Ha-joon’s room, massaging his legs. It’s alarming and weird and I’m glad Hi-soo thinks so too.

We later on get to know in Mine episode 3 the reason for Ha-joon’s testy behaviour is finally out and we get to know that he was being bullied at school because of his mother. However, Hi-soo puts her mind at ease and tells him that she is her real mother. Hi-soo, of course, doesn’t let this pass up and goes over to meet the parents of the child who was bullying Ha-joon – and the rest is history.

Later on, Hi-soo and Ja-kyeong have a verbal disagreement where Hi-soo asks the latter to back off while Ja-kyeong tells her that Ha-joon’s birth mother might not be dead. The way she says it all but confirms that either she’s the mother or that someone close to her is. Hi-soo tells her that she truly loves Ha-joon as her own son and that she can do anything for him. This seems to satisfy Ja-kyeong, who thanks her and leaves.

However, she goes to Ha-joon’s bully’s house later and beats the crap out of his mother. When Hi-soo gets to know about this, she is beyond angry. Ja-kyeong, however, replies saying that if she truly loved her son, she would not be as rational as Hi-soo was. When the latter threatens to terminate her employment, however, she apologises. Hi-soo is not convinced though.

We then move on to Jung Seo-hyun, who tells someone to buy an art piece from Suzy Choi. She then reminisces a tender moment that they shared some time back and Mine episode 3 becomes all the more interesting.

On the other hand, Soo-hyuk falls asleep in Kim Yu-hyeon’s room again and the latter sits on the floor beside him and falls asleep. We later see that Soo-hyuk had woken up in the middle of the night and alarmed to see Yu-hyeon on the floor lifts her and puts her to bed.

Of course, someone sees this and reports it to Jung Seo-hyun, who asks Kim Yu-hyeon whether she has anything to tell her. When the latter says that she doesn’t, she says that she’ll have to take responsibility for her own actions if things continue to go the same way. Seo-hyun later tells one of the maids to spill the beans to Mother. This won’t end well at all.

Anyway, as Mine episode 3 ends, we get a lot of information and a lot of shades of grey to consider. With so many members in one family, there’s bound to be some drama. And boy, do we get some drama or what.
