Read the recap of the previous episode.

There’s no denying that this is a great drama, and I wish more people were watching it. After the recent tragic event of Jin-ha committing suicide, there’s more voyage for the truth between the characters.

Green Mothers’ Club season 1, episode 7 recap

Episode 7 begins with where we left in the last chapter, with Chun-hui telling Jung Jae-ung (Eun-pyo’s husband) that Jin-ha thought her husband was having an affair with a friend of hers from the past. Of course, this only points towards Eun-pyo. The husband (who is also a cop) is now suspicious of his wife.

Eun-pyo figures out that Chun-hui is spreading the rumor that Jin-ha died because of her, so she confronts her. Chun-hui does not care and reiterates the tale that Eun-pyo seduced Jin-ha’s husband, which led her to commit suicide. Eun-pyo is dismayed that Chun-hui would do this to her.

Jung Jae-ung visits Jin-ha’s husband, Louis. He asks if he knows Eun-pyo and what her relationship is. Louis is open, stating she’s an ex-girlfriend from years ago, but nothing more recently. Jung Jae-ung shows Jin-ha messages that show she was highly paranoid about an affair. Jung Jae-ung states that his wife only became suspicious and obsessed because he started working with Eun-pyo.

Jung Jae-ung decides to have a conversation with Eun-pyo about Jin-ha — he doesn’t believe that she had an affair with Louis, but he’s annoyed she lied to him about being close to Jin-ha and working with her husband. Slowly, Eun-pyo’s life is falling apart due to rumors spread by Chun-hui. She’s now got a reputation for having an affair. But what is Chun-hui hiding? That is the question.

Eun-pyo believes Chun-hui is feeling guilty about something, so she confronts her again during a volunteering service, catering food to the children at the school. She wants to know what was the last thing Jin-ha told her. She thinks something happened between them that night. Eun-pyo grabs Chun-hui, and they both fall over in the kitchen, making a scene. Chun-hui injures herself, creating a wound.

The mothers get together to discuss recent events. Eun-pyo has a panic attack, but she returns and expresses that Jin-ha was a friend and failed to protect her. She raises how Chun-hui was the last person to see her, which must come with a tremendous weight of guilt. Jul-pin believes that Chun-hui lies about that fatal night after seeing her in the elevator and hearing her fight with Jin-ha. Chun-hui screams and gets angry. Eun-pyo applies the pressure on Chun-hui for answers, but none come.

Later on, Eun-pyo ponders how she and Chun-hui got here — they had a good friendship, but now it is in tatters. The funeral arrives, and it’s a sad event, with Eun-pyo sobbing. They may have had their differences, but Jin-ha loved her. At the funeral, rumors spread that Jin-ha’s husband was having an affair with Eun-pyo, which leads her to get slapped. Eun-pyo’s husband drags her out of there.

The ending

Outside, Jung Jae-ung asks Eun-pyo why she stood there and let herself get hit and not deny the affair. Eun-pyo said it’s true she went out with Louis, but she was dumped because he met Jin-ha and never looked back. She explains that Jin-ha always took important things away from her, and she couldn’t stand that fact.

She admits she wanted to know why Louis dumped her because it broke her pride. Eun-pyo apologizes to her husband as she sobs. Jung Jae-ung tells her that she’s still the most impressive thing he’s laid his eyes on. He expresses how he feels bad that he could never help while she studied and knows she could be doing greater things in life.

Episode 7 does not provide further context to the truth, but there’s plenty of drama.
