Summary

Episode 14 continues the run of disappointments. There’s nothing else to say at this point. Luckily, there are only two episodes left where the writers can repeat the same story in a boring cycle.

This recap of the Netflix K-drama series Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) episode 14 contains significant spoilers.


I’ve already said what I’ve had to say about this series, so if you want to check out my thoughts on what’s gone wrong with the writing, please see my previous episode recap. 

Episode 14 opens up with Yu-sin telling A-mi that he will not be able to satisfy her fully, but she seems fully prepared only to see him once a week. Yu-sin asks her never to ask him to choose her over his family. A-mi agrees, expressing how important it is to see each other; she agrees to boundaries and holds a place for him in her heart. This man must be incredible in the bedroom. Later on, Yu-sin buys A-mi the same perfume his wife wears, which confirms that he’s a strange man.

Meeting at a bookstore and then a nice drive out

Sa-hyeon and Song Won enjoy yet another meal together. The pair seem very comfortable exchanging stories together. Song Won heads home and admits to herself that Sa-hyeon’s company is enjoyable. The next day, they meet at a bookstore, and Sa-hyeon wants a recommendation. Their conversation turns to marriage, and Sa-hyeon admits his feelings for his wife thinned over time. The bookstore turns into a small road trip together. Sa-hyeon is looking more immature with each chapter — as a husband, you must communicate with your wife — this is a young marriage we are talking about; it’s not a 30-year-old marriage that has run its course.

The pair complement each other as it’s clear their feelings are growing. Song Won states how her divorce caused her a great deal of pain. She explains how her in-laws filled the absence of her own deceased parents, and then she didn’t have them either – she thinks about her in-laws once in a while and wonders whether everyone is destined to be with a certain someone. She admits when she sees babies while out, her heart aches. Sa-hyeon tells her he can be there for her, but he cannot fill her parents’ absence. Song Won cries, so Sa-hyeon hugs her. Sa-hyeon promises her it isn’t just words and that he means it.

Nam Ga-bin gives a story with a sad ending

Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) episode 14 flits to Park Hae-ryun, the man with the midlife crisis. Again, we know nothing new except that he really fancies Nam Ga-bin.

Nam Ga-bin runs a guest lecture for students about acting. She ends up talking about the fan who sent her 100 roses, but that it ended in tears. Later on, her friend Jin-a rings her and tells her to join for drinks with friends — Jin-a is also friends with Park Hae-ryun, and he joins the social event. She seems pleasantly surprised that Park Hae-ryun is there. When the group are in good spirits, Nam Ga-bin gets up, and dances and Park Hae-ryun is transfixed by her.

No arm pillow?

Boo Hye-rung asks Sa-hyeon why he isn’t snuggling her to sleep in the middle of the night. He complains that his arm always goes numb, so she questions whether he still loves her. Sa-hyeon is already distancing himself from his wife.

Knight in shining armour

In the middle of the evening, Nam Ga-bin asks Park Hae-ryun to take her to the hospital — her head is bleeding after an accident, and she wants to go to ER. He drives her there. When she is patched up, Park Hae-ryun takes her home. Nam Ga-bin is worried that he hasn’t eaten because of her, but he doesn’t mind.

The ending

Sa-hyeon meets Song Won after she finishes at the gym and tells her that he has had a fight with his wife and that he had nowhere else to go — it’s almost like these characters do not understand how a marriage works. Song Won goes to get changed, and then they head out for drinks. Flashbacks show Sa-hyeon and Boo Hye-rung going out for a meal — Sa-hyeon is irked that she wears heavy make up every time they go out and that people call her a racoon in the media. He’s embarrassed. Boo Hye-rung walks out on him, which is not surprising whatsoever — her husband called her a raccoon!

Song Won tells Sa-hyeon that trying to change his wife will only ruin their marriage. She asks Sa-hyeon to imagine his wife in a bad accident and ending up in a coma and that he will not care about heavy makeup. Sa-hyeon thanks Song Won for the advice and calls her amazing. She tells him to go home and offer an olive branch. I feel Song Won’s words are cheap at this stage — they’ve already crossed boundaries together; she obviously knows that they are not just friends with their countless meals and conversations together. Sa-hyeon is in the wrong, but Song Won is also being a hypocrite giving him marital advice.

Park Hae-ryun returns home with flowers for Lee Si-eun. He’s obviously feeling guilty for spending time with Nam Ga-bin. A flashback shows Nam Ga-bin inviting Park Hae-ryun in for a warm tea. Oh no, the drama — just kidding, we don’t care anymore.

Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) episode 14 continues the run of disappointments. There’s nothing else to say at this point. Luckily, there are only two episodes left where the writers can repeat the same story in a boring cycle.

    I’m not watching anymore as it is a disappointment. The men are terrible men. They are not honest to their families. They are selfish. Also seems like all these dramas are about cheating. The men are always cheating and these women just keep loving their husbands. Also the young girls want to be with cheating men. Is that a norm? Sad sad. I hate this drama.

    For me I am going to look at last 2 episodes ( then decide). I have observed the majority ain’t talking good about this drama- many are just skipping ( and started at 10). wWriter(s) do you hate women? You have opportunity to show women- ok you been cheated on- but it’s not end of the world – get yourselves up – go be that strong women and live without those losers of husbands. These husbands are not worthy of three wives-yet the husbands are worthy of three women adulteress ( get the picture). Writers show us that these three wives are not about revenge-but about them-that they are strong and can overcome their sorrows of being a women who each will lose their husbands to these three adulteress who have no moral character. Show us writers you only have this opportunity to show women ( young and old)- you can survive and are strong.

    Will watch a Season 3 as hopefully the confusion will be sorted out. Think the confusing ending is a marketing ploy.. It is a script where viewers like me were rooting for the guilty parties to get the comeuppance they deserve… so there must be a 3rd season! LOL
