This recap of Remarriage & Desires season 1, episode 6 contains spoilers.


At what point does fascination become an obsession? Along the same lines, at what point do your own decisions begin being made entirely on the basis of what someone else is doing? This is the predicament that Yoo-hui and Hye-seung are both in. They can’t see the forest for the trees. All they both want is the ruination of the other, and they’re willing to do basically anything to achieve it.

Remarriage & Desires season 1, episode 6 recap

Yo-hui getting Hye-seung evicted was her next step, and it stings to see Min-ji, who has already lost so much, still have to suffer at this woman’s hands. Luckily, Seok-jin is on-hand to salve the wound somewhat by paying off Hye-seung’s debt and securing the apartment. Yoo-hui is denied that little victory, and when she finds out she’s incensed, determined to try something else.

Of course, she targets Hyung-ju, determined as ever to secure his affections, though he’s plenty sought-after by all the key women in the show, so it isn’t even just Hye-seung she needs to worry about. But it seems like he only has eyes for Hye-seung. There’s more bonding here, more motherly tendencies from Hye-seung, one of those obligatory “oops, I fell into your arms!” moments. Given the show’s propensity for tropes thus far, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise where all this seems to be leading…

A love triangle!

Yeah, we’re getting to that point between Hye-seung, Hyung-ju, and Seok-jin. Unwise though it may be, I must confess that this show really is the place for such a thing, and fans will no doubt have been expecting it – relishing the possibility of it, even. While Hye-seung’s affections are still pretty clearly aimed at Hyung-ju in the immediate, the sudden arrival of Jun-ho’s birth mother Jung-in and the chaos she brings with her threaten what is becoming quite a nice dynamic.

And that’s before Seok-jin admits to being in love with Hye-seung.

But anyway, this episode also delivers the biggest plot turn of the season so far, with Yoo-hui being arrested in front of everyone for framing Nam-sik thanks to a series of details it probably isn’t worth going into the specifics of. Will this development stick? Almost certainly not, but at the very least, it provides an appropriate amount of drama as we enter the final two – and coincidentally longest – episodes of the season.
