The episode starts with Firstclass shooting for an episode of U-Report when he gets hit by a baseball. He turns to see Minute apologising for hitting him. He chastises her for deliberately hitting him with the ball. He reminds her of the consequences she can face for hitting someone and she reluctantly apologises to him.
Annoyed, Minute calls BM and like always he appears right behind her. This time his sudden appearance surprises her and she trips and he holds her in his arms. She asks him to let go and he justifies that standing this close will convince people of their relationship. She takes him aside and scolds him for doing stuff without her permission and he admits that she can never really stop whining about everything.
A red car then halts near them and BM introduces Minute to his boyfriend Pitcher. Pitcher is glad to meet Minute and he thanks her for helping BM and him hide their relationship. He tells her that BM has told him almost everything about her and she feels upset about it. BM then plays a song to cheer her up.
Still angry about Firstclass bossing around her, Minute decides to takes matters into her hand and get herself from the ‘slave contract’.
She sneaks into his room and is ecstatic seeing the contract lying on the table.
But before she can tear it off Firstclass walks in and asks her to bow before him just like he has taught her to. She drops the contract to the floor and bows before him with a wide grin on her face. He spots the contract fallen behind her and takes her to task for it. He says she tried to destroy the contract for which she will have to bear a punishment.
He gives her two options of either having her handed over to the police for breaking into his room or she goes back to the room she has rented the night before she shifted into his house. She screams that he is too harsh on people and never even gives them a chance to explain the reason behind their actions. He then asks her to explain her actions and she answers that she was driven into the corner by him as he was too strict with her. Understanding her, he mildly asks her to go back to her room.
On the tennis court, Minute takes out her frustration by practising hard (with her hair open) and ends up hurting her wrist.
Later, she calls BM (who seems to have no other work than carry Minute’s bags) and they leave together in front of Minute’s friends who appear to be jealous of her. He asks Minute about how things are going with Firstclass and she rants about how horrible it is to live with a dictator like him. He consoles her and advises her to be a little more accepting of his brother’s nature because he is inherently a very good guy and will surely be nice to her. Taking BM’s advice, Minute decides to be a good girl for once as a smirk crosses her face.
She knocks on Firstclass’s door and greets him with her best smile. He asks her if something is wrong with her as she did the ‘wai’ without him having to remind her of it. He then tells her that she will be taking cookery lesson today and the fake smile on her face vanishes in a second.
He starts by cooking a dish while she observes him cook. He then hands her a book and tells her that she has 45 minutes to prepare the remaining two dishes. She runs after him and calls him out on cheating her by demonstrating how to prepare fried veggies and then expecting her to prepare much difficult dishes. He tells her that the instructions are written in the book and that she also has all the ingredients she needs with her, so all she has to do is follow what is written in the book. She gripes about him being unfair to her and he reminds her that her complaining has already cost her 2 minutes, she continues to babble and he adds another minute to it. Scared, she then runs to the kitchen not wanting to waste another minute.
Minute finally sets the food on the table and asks Firstclass for his review. He tastes the soup and then asks her to taste to know for herself. She chokes on the soup and he points out that she must learn to behave herself at the dinner table. She protests that sitting calmly with such bad food is impossible. He then goes on to eat her soup and she feel surprised that he is eating the soup even when it tastes so awful. He tells her that throwing away the food is not the solution to her problem. Instead, eating the soup will help her learn from her mistake and next time she will know what to add and what to not add to the soup. She still looks a little reluctant to eat the soup so he tells her to eat the other two dishes which she does happily. Glad to be eating such well-cooked food she praises his cooking skills and he scolds her for speaking with food in her mouth which makes her roll her eyes in annoyance.
After food Firstclass asks Minute to do the dishes but she winces in pain each time she tries to wash the dishes. She tells him about the sprain she suffered while practising in the morning and he asks her to leaves the dishes and wait for him in the other room. He then brings her some ointment and a crepe bandage.
As he massages the ointment he asks her to tell him in case he is being too hard and for fun, she pretends to be in pain because of him. He does not appreciate her joke and she chuckles saying that it is fun to tease him. In return, he scolds her for being so thankless to the person who is helping her. (Sheesh! This guy is no fun at all) Seeing him angry she begs him to forgive her and her cute antics elicit a slight smile on his face and Minute knows that they are good for now. She then asks him why he took up law as his subject and he replies that since childhood he hated things that were wrong so he decided to become a judge one day.
She sighs that unlike him she still does not know what she wants to do in life. He tells her that she can still find out what she likes to do the most. She then starts to think what she likes to do the most and ends up dozing off in her place. Firstclass is unable to hide his smile looking at her sleep and he gently put her to sleep on the couch as their faces remain just inches away.
Next morning, Minute wakes up and heads to the washroom where she is startled to see Firstclass taking a shower. She screams at him for bathing in her washroom and warns him of trying to harm her in any way just because she lives with him.
He calmly states that she is the one who is in his room. He then walks closer to her and says that she is someone who can never turn him on, in fact a girl like her only turns him off. Angry she decides to check if he means what he says so she goes up to him and requests him to help her take off her blouse because she is unable to do so because of her injured wrist.
Seeing him stunned, she teases him for blushing and never having seen a girl naked before. He reprimands her for throwing herself at him like that and she retorts that he need not worry as she has a solution ready for her dilemma. Next, we see him standing with an eye mask in front of her.
She waves at him to check if he really cannot see anything. She then guides his hands to her blouse. She raises her hands and asks him to lift her blouse up through her head. He gingerly moves his hand over her waist and pulls the blouse off as she stands with her eyes closed with embarrassment. She quickly covers herself with the blouse and runs to the restroom while he takes a deep breath before taking off the eye mask. (Jeez…. I think I could hear his heart beating out of his chest.)
Before dropping Minute at the university he invites her to his match later in the day and she says she will be there. At the basketball game, Minute’s friends cannot stop cheering for Firstclass and she shouts at them for doing so. Later they catch her ogling at him and she cutely denies checking him out. Like a true drama hero, Firstclass scores a few impressive baskets and all the girls scream their lungs out cheering for him while Minute cannot help smiling at his performance.
After the match, girls hound Firstclass for a picture and he gladly obliges them as Minute observes from the stands.
She then sees a hot girl with a bottle and towel approach Firstclass. She wipes his sweat and offers him water which he drinks with a smile while Minute goes green with envy.
At home, Firstclass tells Minute that she has to learn cooking irrespective of her injury and she tries to seduce him to get out of the chore. She playfully runs her fingers over his chest and he squirms as he tries to move away from her. He finally relents but under the condition that Minute will watch how he cooks.
Elated, she jumps on him thanking him for letting her slip this time and her craziness elicits another smile on his face. (Woow…that’s a lot in one episode. He looks good while smiling. I will try to find another drama of his where he smiles a lot.) At the dinner table Minute gets excited over the tasty food and this time Firstclass allows her to forget her ‘manners’ and let loose once in a while. She then reminiscence the time she ate with her parents and gets down to her childish antics which make Firstclass laugh hard. (Ah!! He’s so cute!!!!)
She then joins him back at the dinner table and asks him about his past girlfriend. He confesses that he has never had a girlfriend before because he wants to be certain of whom he is falling for and when he falls in love he wants it to be just the ‘one’ special girl for him. She then asks about Noey who was at the basketball match and he clarifies that there is nothing going on between them. She asks him if his hobby is to collect timepieces and he nods his head in admittance. She tells him her hobby is to collect designer stuff and he laughs at it. She tells him that designer stuff have a charm that he will not know until he has one.
Later in her room, she ponders over what she likes and remembers an old pocket watch.
She then takes the pocket watch to him, requesting him to fix it for her. He says he can try fixing it but since the clock is old it might be difficult. He asks her why she wants to fix it and she answers that the clock is valuable to her. She then cutely admits that as a kid she wanted to be a clock repairer because she believed that if she could fix watches she could also fix the time that has passed.
She asks him the reason behind his fixation with clocks and he says that he likes clocks since childhood. He adds that time controls everything in everyone’s lives but no one can ever control time which is why he collects timepieces to remind himself of never committing a grave mistake because he will not be able to turn back time and correct it. She then teases him of liking her since her name ‘Minute’ is related to time.
He laughs it off but she pesters him to admit that he likes her. To her surprise he rises from his chair and grabbing her by her arms he says that he does like her and then leans in for a kiss.
OmG!! This just the second episode and after seeing how fast they are progressing I won’t be surprised to see Minute and Firstclass with their baby by the end of episode 5 ;). I LOVE this show. It is perfect for binge watching. It is the perfect show to watch after a tiring day at work. It is the perfect way to relax. I have told this before and I will repeat it again if you ever feel depressed watch some mindless romantic drama and trust me you will fail to recognize depression.
The chemistry between the lead couple is mind-blowing. I wish Firstclass smiles a little more in the coming episodes because he makes my heart skip a beat with his smile.
The only problem I have with this lakorn is that crazy fellow BM. The way he looks at Minute and the way he behaves with her, he does not seem ‘gay’ at all. I feel he must be bi-sexual. But then I wonder why he would leave her alone with his handsome brother when he clearly likes her? Whatever the reason be, BM seems creepy to me. His dreamy gaze makes me extremely uncomfortable. What is most weird about him is that he is ALWAYS smiling. No matter what the person in front of him speaks, no matter what the scene is, he is smiling all the freaking time. Something is wrong with the pretty boy.
Apart from BM I like everything about this drama and am super-excited to watch the next episode. 😀
