Cunning Single Lady/ Sly and Single Again Episode 3 Fashion Review
To highlight the “Cunning Single Lady” title, the first two episodes highlight Na Ae Ra’s part in the marriage’s demise so it’s easier to see how Cha Jung Woo’s angst towards her is justified. But take heart because the next episodes seem to be showing Na Ae Ra’s less than cunning side. She also continues to show us some interestingly cutesy looks with a few office-appropriate outfit inspirations to come your way.
The episode started with this scene when Cha Jung Woo turned the tables on Na Ae Ra and uttered the same words she said during their divorce: to do him a favor and never use alimony as an excuse to see him again.
He left Na Ae Ra stewing on his words. On her way home, she passed by a poster of Cha Jung Woo and D&T. She took out her frustrations on the unsuspecting poster and said Jung Woo could have at least thanked her for the money he used to fund his research – the money she earned while doing multiple jobs and working herself to the grave during their marriage. The flashback also shows us that she did mourn over their divorce.

At home, she concocted some silly plan on how to get back at Jung Woo. I really like her comfy home outfits – just some form of cute boxy sweater. This sweater though looks more like a dress, with the lace overlay underneath.

Na Ae Ra’s plans have taken a diabolical image as she considers reenacting popular dramas such as this scene from Temptation of Wife. Lol.
She also considered being the leader of a gang so she can have Jung Woo encased in a bin and thrown in the Han River. She mentally got herself a makeover too! Sultry makeup, dark trench coat, high heeled lace up boots, sunglasses in the dead of the night – the whole nine yards!
Lee Min Jung’s coat is from:
Meanwhile, Seung Hyun is being pestered by his dad’s secretary in making his resume. He’s being forced to enter D&T, albeit covertly. This drama does have a bit of a similarity to Yoon Eun Hye’s Marry Him If You Dare in the sense that there’s a chaebol second lead going incognito and a female lead starting with her career late.
With Min Young’s sensible advice, Na Ae Ra finally came up with a more realistic start to her revenge: getting a job at D&Ts. She meets Seung Hyun at the interview, with the latter recognizing that tartan scarf.
Na Ae Ra seems to be wearing jeans. Jeans for a job interview? Can we make this a trend, please? Seung Hyun, on the other hand, gives his own twist to the suit interview attire. Look at his cropped pants and the sneakers he wore for the occasion. These two are renegades!

Lee Min Jung’s muffler is from Elbon the Style and her pants are from SIWY.
During the interview, Na Ae Ra’s answers are being scoffed at by Seung Hyun. Ae Ra confronted him later and told him not to do that because it’s insulting. You can also see here the bag she’s wearing. Expect Ae Ra to wear a lot of Vincis Bench because the actress, Lee Min Jung, is endorsing it.

On her way out, Ae Ra bumps into Jung Woo at the elevator. Jung Woo notices her visitor’s pass. Ae Ra confirmed that she’s here for an interview and Jung Woo took exception to this, asking her why she can’t find work elsewhere. Ae Ra promised to go to another company once she finishes her internship at D&Ts. Jung Woo said he couldn’t care less, he just doesn’t want to see her. Ae Ra asked if she still needs to kneel to get his permission and Jung Woo said yes. Ae Ra can’t bring herself to kneel though.
Later, Secretary Gil shows Jung Woo the list of interns. Sure enough, Na Ae Ra’s name is there. Although Gil Yo Han is often in suits as befits his work, he still manages to squeeze in some style. Case in point: this take on the print on print trend courtesy of her tie and shirt.
At home, Na Ae Ra regrets attempting to kneel in front of Jung Woo. She gives up her pursuit for an internship spot.

But finding other jobs is already hard when you are fresh graduate. For a divorcee in her early 30s, it’s even harder! She gets rejected for a pre-school teaching position because of her marital status.
Lee Min Jung’s jacket is from Club Monaco and her bag is from Vincis Bench. Again with the jeans for job interviews. If only we can clad ourselves in similar attire for job interviews and be taken seriously.

She wore a similar attire for another interview. But this time, she ditched the brown coat to wear this bleached denim jacket and used a pink scarf for a pop of color.
Lee Min Jung’s denim jacket is from Tankus, her scarf is from Topshop, her bag is from Decke and her sneakers are from Pasquale Y3.
She forgot her woes for a while when she got a call from D&T with the news that she got the internship spot.
They celebrated that night. The two look so fresh and pretty in their sweaters. Na Ae Ra in her lace sweater and Min Young in her old rose-hued one.

LAP Lady My You Sweater, 89,000 Won
Lee Min Jung’s headband is from Kate n Kelly.
Secretary Gil sheds off his suit to wear this long-sleeved shirt and cream pants. Huzzah! Jung Woo noticed him trying to cover something on television, which turned out to be Na Ae Ra’s video when she got into that reality show. The video showed Na Ae Ra crying and lamenting about how hard it was when she had a husband.
Seung Hyun also got the internship spot, not surprisingly.
He’s just not as thrilled about it as Ae Ra. He goes to work looking like he’s supposed to attend a fashion event. Love the grid-patterned blazer. And for those living under a rock and has just now noticed this trend in Kdrama guys, they wear backpacks – even when they’re going to work!
Na Ae Ra’s first day of work attire is something you might not have considered for your own work environment – a leather skirt. Most of it is hidden under her volumed coat though.

She’s also wearing a pair of rad boots from Sue Comma Bonnie although it’s hard to tell which particular pair of boots it is from their site. Her bag is from Moschino.
They were welcomed to work by their team leader. The girl in the pink blazer, forgot her name, scoffed at having to work with an underling who is older than her.
Cha Jung Woo is dealing with an internal war. He wants to check in on the interns but Secretary Gil said that would look odd since he doesn’t do that.
He caved in and introduced himself to the interns for a bit if only to flaunt his staid position to Na Ae Ra. But he got back to the office shortly after he left after getting a call that there has been a hacking attempt.
I flit from cheering Na Ae Ra on and wanting to bludgeon some sense into her head. She swears revenge one minute and wistfully looks at Cha Jung Woo the next. The girl has no convictions whatsoever! She’s also quite impressionable.
She daydreams a lot too and this time her dreams have taken on a melodrama vibe.
Jung Woo and Seung Hyun met up for a Judo sparring session. The reminisced about the first time they met. Jung Woo used to be Seung Hyun’s nerdy Math tutor.
I love the reds going on in Na Ae Ra’s wardrobe. It suits her really well. This time, she wore this red oversized coat.
She was immediately put to work the moment she arrived with this power-tripping lady.

But while replacing the water container, a guy delivering bottled water came up to her and sneakily stole her intern ID. Seung Hyun, who was leisurely making his way to the office bumped into him.
Na Ae Ra chastised Seung Hyun for being too laid-back and lax. Even his outfit screams high schooler – the graphic printed tee, the jacket, the backpack. The earphones are the clincher.
Na Ae Ra tried to get Jung Woo to meet her at the rooftop. The latter accidentally met her there and told her over the phone not to get close to him because he has a reputation to uphold.
It looks like someone from the inside took information from the company’s servers. Jung Woo told his team to check the log in system to see who was last in the area.
When Na Ae Ra got off work that day, she couldn’t find her ID. Seung Hyun swiped his ID so they can get off.
Their team went off for dinner and drinks and the topic of conversation? Their single CEO, of course. Na Ae Ra can barely contain herself when her officemates began telling rumors about the CEO’s ex-wife.
Here we can see Na Ae Ra’s adorable blouse under the red coat. Is the bug print the cutest thing you’ve seen or what?

Seung Hyun can play the piano! As if he’s not loveable enough already.
When she got to work the next day, Na Ae Ra was surprised to find these men waiting for her. She was seized while Jung Woo looks on.
