In order to gather strength, Dokko Jin needs to recharge just like the superhero Iron Man (See: Iron Man).
Recharge 1:After punching evil manager Dokko Jin said to Gu Ae Jung he was extra cool that day and to keep being cool and protect her he needed to recharge. He recharged by hugging Gu Ae Jung. Feeling a bit uncomfortable, Gu Ae Jung asks him what he was doing. He replies that similar to a cellphone, his battery needed to charge at least one bar so he could function properly. Ae Jung comes to her senses (not before enjoying some hugging time) and says that she wasn’t his charger. Instead, Dokko Jin requests that Ae Jung makes him curry so that she would not leave his house (See: Curry).
Recharge 2Dokko Jin begins to miss Gu Ae Jung terribly. He first tries to restrain himself from seeing her but after 300 attempts he gives up. He goes to Gu Ae Jung’s house to recharge and gets injured while sneaking out of her bedroom. While resting on a bench, Ae Jung tends to his injured ankle. He holds her face in his hands and presses his forehead against hers while she’s still holding his leg. Ae Jung asks why he is doing that and he says he needed to recharge. Saying that he’s broken, he mentions wanting to take Ae Jung with him so she could be his recharger for one month, knowing that at the end of the month he would have surgery for his heart. She questions him about why he says broken and not love when saying he wanted to be with her. He doesn’t explain, not wanting to appear weak in front of Ae Jung and she leaves in a huff.
Recharge 3After inviting Dokko Jin to a picnic and asking him to wait for her outside her house, Gu Ae Jung passes by him hand in hand with Yoon Pil Joo. Heartbroken, Dokko Jin cries along in his car. Meanwhile, after Yoon Pil Joo leaves, Gu Ae Jung cries by herself looking at the sweet, emotional text and photo of their potato (See: Potato) Dokko Jin had sent her asking her to come and recharge him. Gu Ae Jung finds Dokko Jin with his eyes closed, mirroring what Dokko Jin did in Episode 4, she cups her hands on his face outside the window, staring teary-eyed. Opening his eyes, Dokko Jin rolls down the window and she tells him, “Bad guy, recharge.” Taking her hand and leaning out the window, he recharges with a passionate kiss.
Recharge 4We can see Dokko Jin recharging again after Gu Ae Jung discovers the truth about his heart condition and becomes kidnapped in his house. She teases him about how he always had Ding Dong around and the body restrictions CF clauses that prevented from taking their relationship farther. At that, he kisses her deeply and hugs her tightly. Allowing him to recharge as much as he wants, he repeats the phrase, “Recharge.”
Quick (Anti) Recharge
After speaking with President Moon, Ae Jung rethinks about her future plans with Dokko Jin. She goes to see him and worries aloud that he’s not going to love her after losing all his CF and movie contracts. Dokko Jin knows that losing them will sting but reaffirms that all he needs is her. She provides him with a slap-charge, more to wake him up to the reality before them, and tells him that she will give him one more opportunity to quickly pass her by.
After seeing a pissed Dokko Jin, Gu Ae Jung prepares to leave. But after accepting his proposal, she remembers that she promised to cling to him. So she goes over to comfort him to learn that he’s not pissed because he lost an award to Kim Joon Sung but because they keep replaying old episodes of Couple Making with that Anyone Oriental Medicine Doctor.
Tired from all the press on their wedding day, the couple recharges by looking at videos of fans all over the world congrantulating them.
Despite having a strong marriage, there are often rumors that their marriage is not going so well. What is a celebrity couple to do in order to stay on top of their game? Image control! Dokko Jin suggests going on a picnic but that’s a weak line of defense for Gu Ae Jung. She says that what’s trendy right now is celebrity couples having lots of babies. Ding Dong! For that, Dokko Jin needs to fully charge his batteries.
