Cunning Single Lady/ Sly and Single Again Episode 8 Fashion Review
The episode delivers on feels. There are also revelations (more like confirmations if you guys have already started speculating). While it isn’t teeming with fashion, we still get to see a couple of interesting looks.
Pi Song Hee, still concealing her face with that visor, is relating to everyone who cares to listen the goings-on in the shooting. She’s mad that Na Ae Ra and the CEO is starting to get close. Haven’t you heard dear? Karma’s a real bitch.
Tartan and stripes? The contrast of prints is striking but Seung Hyun made the look normal and wearable by keeping the bottom half of his attire simple. I love the subtle accents – his cute toy brooch!

Yeo Jin is having one of her nightmares again. I’m getting real tired of her accident flashbacks. How many more times do we have to revisit that accident? They’re also showing for the first time her prosthetic leg.
A strong gust of wind from a set fan knocked a prop pillar down and almost hit Na Ae Ra. Jung Woo saved her in time but got hit in the head instead. He was rushed to the hospital and Na Ae Ra took it upon herself to stay by Jung Woo’s bedside. She took the time to don a two-tone trench coat over the Marilyn Monroe attire.
Lee Min Jung’s coat is from Dries van Noten but I couldn’t find it online.

While waiting for Jung Woo to wake up, Na Ae Ra reminisced that time when she was rushed to the hospital. She had a miscarriage that day. Min Young tried to call Jung Woo but he wasn’t answering. She helped Na Ae Ra pay for the hospital bills and I’m assuming that’s when she took her home and gave Jung Woo money to pay for gas.
Yeo Jin finally heard of what happened to Jung Woo and rushed to the hospital only to find out Na Ae Ra’s already there. She told Ae Ra to go home because she’s probably tired and offered her the use of her car.
Embellished collar detail is definitely a big part of Na Ae Ra’s wardrobe. This one looks like it has big sequins on it.
Lee Min Jung’s blouse is from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel.
This one has gemstones on it.

Pi Song Hee, on the other hand, showed off a lot of legs in a mini flared skirt worn with a daisy-printed sweater. Yeo Jin walked in the office just in time to overhear Ae Ra tell Pi Song Hee that she’s wasting a lot of company resources by printing in color, using too much glue and even handing out to her too much tissue.

Yeo Jin seemed impressed by her care for the company. She commended her in front of the team leader, who is forcing her smiles all throughout the conversation. She has been trying to get on the good graces of Yeo Jin but to no avail.
Yeo Jin invited Na Ae Ra to accompany here as she needs her expert opinion on business matters. She took Na Ae Ra to a shopping center. Ae Ra’s experience working at a high end fashion store came handy.
Ae Ra partnered her collared top with a striped A-line skirt and an A-line dress coat. Yeo Jin, on the other hand, looks matronly in that pencil skirt. Her peplum jacket is cute though.

Yeo Jin took her to fine dining restaurant where she pried more information about her former married life.
We get to see Jung Woo’s family for the first time. His dad likes Ae Ra a lot but his mom is more on the stricter side.
Jung Woo arrived at the restaurant and saw the two talking. But before he can approach them, he got a call from his sister that their father is getting worse. He called his dinner date with Yeo Jin off and waited for Ae Ra. His father likes Ae Ra and often asks for her so Jung Woo asked her if she can come and see his dad. Ae Ra agreed.
They didn’t arrive in time. His father passed away just a few moments before. The whole family is crying while Ae Ra also sheds tears from a discreet distance.
I’m not a fan of Yeo Jin’s style as I always find her color combinations a bit drab and boring. But I like this lace top. She should wear stuff like this more often.
Did I miss it or is Pi Song Hee’s major role in the company is to be Na Ae Ra’s thorn on the side? Ae Ra is unable to go to work because she decided to stay and help out Jung Woo’s family.
The team heard about Jung Woo’s dad’s passing though and they all got off work to pay their respects. Much to their surprise, Ae Ra is already there, helping out. Rather than tell them the truth as to why she’s already here, Ae Ra let them think that she’s here because she’s sucking up the boss and wants to gain his favor.
Pi Song Hee’s dissing Na Ae Ra, as usual, but Seung Hyun defended her – in a roundabout way. He started helping out Ae Ra and the others followed suit.
Meanwhile, Jung Woo’s sister heard that Ae Ra’s been working in Jung Woo’s company. She confronted Ae Ra about what she deems as her opportunistic way of getting back with Jung Woo. Jung Woo saw them talking and rescued Ae Ra but not before his sister blurted out that it’s her fault their dad collapsed.
Jung Woo’s family’s reception of Yeo Jin is entirely different. They know her family’s responsible for Jung Woo’s success now so they’re warm and gracious to her.
While that scene was unfolding, Ae Ra was watching. Seung Hyun grabbed her hand and led her outside where he asked her if she likes Jung Woo. Ae Ra evaded and said she’s tired. She said he should mind his own business and Seung Hyun suddenly blurted out that her helping Jung Woo out bothers him. But before he can elaborate, the rest of their co-workers interrupted.
