Fated To Love You Episode 8 Review
Lee Gun and Kim Mi Young share a bed for the first time since they got married. I don’t know who’s more uncomfortable at the idea of sleeping next to each other, Mi Young or Gun.
Mi Young fell asleep first while Gun watches her.
Gun is out for his morning and guess who he bumps into? Daniel! It wasn’t long before the simple jog turned into a cut-throat marathon. Lol.

Descente Korea Running Shirt (neon green), 55,190 Won

Descente Sneakers, 97,400 Won
Yes, Mi Young and Daniel look good together. Surprisingly, the dongsaeng-oppa relationship also works for them. Mi Young went to Daniel’s interesting exhibit but a group of reporters cut the tour short. Daniel has to go out of his way to shield Mi Young and keep her anonymous.
I wonder what Daniel’s wardrobe looks like. He can’t go a day without something vibrant to wear. And Mi Young’s dress looks like the blue version of what Jung Eun Ji wore in Trot Lovers.
Get Kim Mi Young’s Dress:
Reneevon Bow Dress, 296,100 Won
Her bag is from Louis Quatorze.
Get Daniel’s Pants:
ComodoSquare Colored Pants, 41,420 Won
Daniel’s jacket is from L’uomo.
I just can’t pass up a screenshot of these two! Lee Yong looks like the ultimate preppy guy in that blue shirt and mom rocks the tie dye thing she’s wearing.
After picking Mi Young up, Lee Gun decided to tour her around his company. Mi Young was hesitant and unsure of her new status at first but Gun kindly encouraged her.
As soon as they stepped into Gun’s office though, they noticed someone sitting in Gun’s chair. It’s Se Ra! She’s here for a break and decided to surprise Gun.
Gun tried to explain Mi Young’s presence in the room but Mi Young interrupted and introduced herself as Gun’s secretary.
Se Ra’s style is very edgy. She dons a lot of blacks with gossamer overlays (if you remember her airport outfit). And look at those sandals! The gladiators totally worked with her pixie-like outfit.
My first thought? That’s a LOT of onions! I thought Mi Young’s chopping those to camouflage her tears. Lol. Stepmother sits down to chat with her. She brings up the rumors about Mi Young. Turns out she’s being tagged as a gold digger who only rose to her current position because she was knocked up by a chaebol.
Sure enough, the gossip spread around quickly. Mi Young is now being hounded by reporters wanting to know if there’s any truth to the rumors.
Love the boxy top and the midi skirt. So summery, especially with the white sandals.
Get Kim Mi Young’s Top:
Olive des Olive Boxy Top, 91,630 Won
Get Kim Mi Young’s Skirt:
Coiincos Midi Skirt, 87,260 Won
Daniel came to her rescue. He practically shooed the reporters away with his intimidating tactics. He introduced himself as Mi Young’s neighbourhood oppa.
Why does Daniel’s shirt remind me bathroom tiles? Lol.
Get Daniel’s Shirt:
L’uomo Shirt (black), 70,810 Won
Daniel’s pants are also from L’uomo and his shoes are from New Balance.
Se Ra changed from her sheer skirt outfit earlier to this button down outfit. Lee Gun, on the other hand, is especially dapper in a brown suit.
He gets a call from someone while waiting for Se Ra to finish her interview. He dashes off, leaving a text message to Se Ra, saying there’s an emergency he has to attend to.
The emergency turned out to be Mi Young’s mom, who was admitted at a nearby hospital because of gall stones. It’s nothing serious but Lee Gun’s concern shows how much Mi Young’s family is growing on him.
On the ride home, the tension is so thick, they can almost sit on it. But neither wants to bring up the topic of Se Ra. Lee Gun fills up the awkward atmosphere with sounds from the car’s stereo but the radio shows they listen to seem to taunt their relationship. Lol.
The awkwardness didn’t kill them but this scene nearly did. Se Ra walks in on them. Lee Gun finally had to tell her who Mi Young really is, despite the latter’s objections.
Se Ra took off in tears, with Lee Gun hot on her heels, or green oxford shoes. Love the shift dress and the scarves for accent on Se Ra but the rain totally ruined the look.
Lee Gun holed up in his secret room after that, watching and re-watching the video tapes of him and Se Ra. Mi Young listens in from the other side of the door. This scene is somehow more heartbreaking than Lee Gun telling Se Ra about Mi Young. I can feel Mi Young’s helplessness.
Gun is back to his usual frosty self the next day.
Grandma invites Mi Young to a party. She wants to introduce her to the whos-who in their circle. So grandma had Mi Young dolled up (that gown!) and introduced her to everyone.
It’s not an inviting crowd though. Mi Young heard a group of women whispering about her being a gold-digger. She walked away only to bump into Se Ra’s friend, the one they met in the elevator. She spewed water on her. To make matters worse, Lawyer Min is also in the party. He taunted Mi Young, even went to the podium to introduce her to everyone and let them now she was just a former contractual worker.
Lee Gun stepped in the middle of Lawyer Min’s mean tirade. He introduced Mi Young to everyone as the girl of very little means, with not much intelligence to boast of but a girl who is sincere and has a very big heart.
And after that very moving speech, Mi Young was in tears, Lee Gun took her outside. He has fireworks prepared for her. While they were dancing, his secretary and lawyer lit up the fireworks and became the backdrop of their very fetching scene.
