Cunning Single Lady/ Sly and Single Again Episode 4 Fashion Review
Things are getting interesting in the D&T land. Na Ae Ra gets detained by the company’s security personnel. There’s also a lot to note in the fashion department.
Na Ae Ra, according to the log in, is the last person in the server. How does she explain that? Ae Ra can’t because after last night’s drunken episode, her mind is blank.
While she’s struggling to recall, the head of IT security, Reply 1994’s Kim Sung Kyun, deduces how she might have performed the deed – starting with this action-movie like scene with Na Ae Ra in full spy gear.
Secretary Gil and Jung Woo were speculating about Na Ae Ra’s when they noticed the vandalism on the car. They checked the video footage, from the car’s black box I assume, and found out that it was a drunk Ae Ra who did this.
She was absolved of the information theft accusation but she had to clean the car’s hood while Secretary Gil looks on.
She went home dissing Jung Woo. Also, this is starting to become her style formula – a pair of skinny jeans worn with a loose shirt and a coat. She likes to wear scarves and often chooses heeled ankle boots for footwear.

Her coat is also from Jill Stuart (no longer available online).
She went to work the next day but was immediately chastised by Song Hee for spending so much time in the ladies’ room.
Their team leader just announced that there’s going to be some sort of contest in the office. The one who gets a discount deal will get a chance to have dinner with the CEO. Song Hee looks thrilled while Seung Hyun and Ae Ra look like they couldn’t care less about the price.
Lee Min Jung’s coat is from Coming Step (not available online) and her jeans are from SIWY.

Cha Jung Woo visits a fully-furnished house, which seems to be the realization of the house model he built for Ae Ra.
In Korea, secretaries are also paid to wash their boss’ car. I guess? Isn’t Gil Yo Han the cutest Secretary or what? His idol vibes is seeping from his suit. Again with the print play in his garb.
Yeo Jin found out that an intern vandalized the CEO’s car. So she asked team leader to take care of this.
She definitely took care of it. She called Na Ae Ra and tasked her with getting a discount coupon deal with a restaurant owner. It’s a deal that is hard, if not impossible, to close so everyone thinks it’s a mission meant to fire Ae Ra.
After hearing that this job might get Ae Ra out of the company, Seung Hyun perks up and decides to join. He really wants out. Isn’t his brooch the cutest? It’s a testament to his fun character.
Ae Ra’s dad decided to show up at D&T. He met up Jung Woo in the bathroom. Awkward.
Thank God for the nice coat or Na Ae Ra’s slouchy grey sweater would have made her outfit look drab. She looks so coordinated with Seung Hyun though. Seung Hyun has mastered the art of office dressing without completely relinquishing his happy-go-lucky aesthetic. That backpack is a must-have!
Lee Min Jung’s Coat here is from VOV.
Knowing that her career is on the line, Na Ae Ra tried so hard to get in the good graces of the restaurant owner but to no avail.
Meanwhile, Ae Ra’s father found out that Soo Cheol asked Jung Woo for money. Her mother overheard them talking about this and she got mad at her brother and threw him out.
Ae Ra’s day could not be any worse so she went to the rooftop to let off some steam. She encountered Yeo Jin who also seems to be doing the same thing. They bonded and Ae Ra managed to extricate some info about Yeo Jin. She let it spill that she likes someone but liking that someone means she has forgotten a promise she made to a former love. Ae Ra advised that she should go for the new love.
Coincidentally, Jung Woo is also considering moving on and offered to chauffer Yeo Jin home.
Just when Na Ae Ra thought she hasn’t gotten the deal, she got a call that confirmed that they are giving away discount coupons. She’s over the moon with glee while Song Hee, whose deal just got cancelled, looks miffed.
Na Ae Ra’s knight in shining armor is no other than Seung Hyun, who used his chaebol connections to get Ae Ra the deal. Aww! He even gave Ae Ra the tissue paper roses he made.
That blue leather jacket is also too cute! Just when I’m used to seeing male characters wear something dull in offices, he comes in and gives us something fresh and new.
Love the double collars on Ae Ra’s blouse too!
Meanwhile, Jung Woo preps up for his dinner date. Yes, he’ll cook the dinner.
Secretary Gil can’t help him much because he is going away for a weekend trip with his girlfriend. So thankful for these snippets of casual look from Secretary Gil! The comeback of stripes in Kdramas are long overdue!
Cha Jung Woo found out late that Na Ae Ra won the competition. They both put up an act in front of the reporters though. Na Ae Ra chose this geometric-printed coat for the dinner date, which is a bit unusual given her penchant for girly prints and colors.
Jung Woo, on the other hand, kicked his suit up a notch by tying his necktie differently.
Lee Min Jung’s coat is from Jill Stuart (sold out).
All throughout their dinner, Jung Woo tried to rub his wealth and status on Ae Ra.
He also took her to the house. Na Ae Ra was reduced to tears when she saw their dream house come to life. But she’s about to get a reality check when Jung Woo said he is not fulfilling their dream, he’s just fulfilling his dreams.
Ae Ra already has her resignation ready the next day. This girl is definitely lacking in tenacity. Her jacket here is quite a quirky piece. She wore it with a flounce skirt.
Knee-high socks! When was the last you saw a 30-something year old career woman wear knee-high socks for work? In my case, never. Lol! On her, this looks appropriate and not at all school girl-ish, probably because of her edgy jacket and skirt combo.
You also can’t help but love Seung Hyun’s Breton stripes tee and blazer combo. It’s a combo that has been done so often in Kdramas before but one you never get tired of. He again accessorized with a quirky brooch.

Seung Hyun offered to take Na Ae Ra out for a drink so they went to a tent café and had a little drinking session. In there, Ae Ra coincidentally saw the guy who stole her ID and immediately pointed him out to Seung Hyun.
Seung Hyun, with his Judo skills, knocked the man down when he tried to run. Okay, so Jung Woo needs to step up on his male lead skills or Seung Hyun will definitely steal the limelight from him.
They took him to the police station. D&T’s IT Security personnel also came and identified the guy. They retrieved the flash drive he used to steal corporate info. Seung Hyun commemorated this moment by taking a selca. Lol!
Their efforts didn’t go unnoticed though. Kim Gyu Ri congratulated them for a job well done. Jung Woo also congratulated Na Ae Ra, albeit reluctantly. I couldn’t even focus on Ae Ra because Seung Hyun just keeps shining in my eyes. He is just so bent on breaking corporate dressing rules. This time, he went to work in a pair of distressed jeans. To make it look dressier, he wore a two-tone blazer from Trugen(not available). The way he styled his necktie is also cute! The whole look works!
