Curry is a heavily spiced sauce or relish made with curry powder and eaten with rice, meat, fish, or other food. The basic vegetables are onions, carrots, and potatoes (See: Potato). In The Greatest Love, the curry is cooked without potatoes.
In episode 6 of The Greatest Love, Gu Ae Jung heads to Dokko Jin’s house with the intention of taking back her words; to never like him back. On her way to his house, she stops by a store and spots potatoes bringing them along with the other store bought ingredients. Meanwhile Dokko Jin has a misunderstanding with Gu Ae Jung about Yoon Pil Joo’s lost pen thinking that she lied about finding the pen in order to look good to Yoon Pil Joo. He becomes more aggravated when Ae Hwan asks Dokko Jin to appear in Gu Ae Jung’s upcoming music video. Harsh words are said; seeing her as easy person, he tells her to stay over and sleep with him to put an end to the allurement he feels for her. Gu Ae Jung, hurt by those words, accidentally drops the content of her bag and runs out of his house. Picking up the potato, Dokko Jin begins to second guess her true intentions in coming to see him.
After running out of his house, he witnesses Gu Ae Jung crying and being comforted in Yoon Pil Joo’s arms. He returns home to cook the curry himself but is unable to put potatoes in the dish. The misunderstanding of the pen (See: Mont Blanc Pen) was then cleared in episode 10. Later in episode 11, when he was caught in a scandal hitting Manager Jang for Gu Ae Jung’s sake, Gu Ae Jung visits him at his house again. He insists that she cook curry for him, alleviating the bitterness of earlier incidents; his misunderstandings about the pen and Gu Ae Jung’s true intentions. When Gu Ae Jung asks him for potatoes to put into the curry, he tells her that he doesn’t kill potatoes in his house and they both eat the potato-less curry dish.
