Fated to Love You Episode 9 Korean Drama Review
Ah the classic damsel in distress/knight in shining armor story line. It gets me all the time. But thanks to Gun’s maniacal laughter, it cuts down on the cliché a bit. Our knight in shining armor is less than perfect and our damsel in distress is not annoyingly meek.
After practically telling the world how awesome a person Mi Young is despite her many faults, Lee Gun took her outside. Little did she know that Gun’s lawyer and secretary are prepped up and in charge of a fireworks show meant for Mi Young. Jeez, these rich people!
Gun kissed Mi Young’s cheeks (which makes their relationship a tad more real just because they’re not jumping into the kissing already).
At home, Lee Gun is gripped by err, a strong desire. Lol. Those idle hands!
Lee Gun has come a long way from being the single-minded and brash CEO from the first episodes. He seems to be perfectly content with Mi Young sending him off. He even subtly asked for a goodbye kiss!
Mi Young’s frame is draped in a simple yellow shift dress from the brand Valencia (the dress not available online) while Lee Gun is dressed to the nines in a pinstripe suit.
This drama easily has some of the most covetable suits.
Here’s another on Daniel. The two shake hands like civilized people (we know better, lol) in their press conference after signing their contract. Daniel is supposed to work with Gun’s company, presumably to make some changes in the brand’s designs.
Mi Young turns into a dutiful wife. Gun is a huge fan of her doshirak.
After the lunch date, Mi Young visits her mom who has established a business in the city. They were able to get some money to put up a restaurant.
Love her sleeveless dress. The print is quirky! And the perforated skirt is just the thing to go with it.

Even with his busy schedule, Gun still has the time to help out in the new restaurant. Mother-in-law approves.
If there’s one thing I learned about the fashion in kdramas, it’s that when it comes to the workplace, anything goes as long as you look decent. Take Lee Yong’s attire for instance. The bomber jacket look might be more suitable for a day out or for clubbing but seems to be just right for them in the corporate world.
Lee Gun is set to have a pictorial with Daniel. But he insisted they also include Mi Young. So there, Mi Young’s first ever photoshoot. Her skirt seems to be the perfect length for her. The midi ones tend to dwarf her petite frame and makes her look dowdier than usual.
Get Lee Gun’s Cardigan (Jang Hyuk Cardigan):
Epigram Cardigan, 179,000 Won
Mayhem ensued when Daniel arrived and Lee Gun tried his best to put him in the shade. Lol.
Mi Young looks her happiest. But that happiness was dampened quickly when she got a call from someone. Daniel, as always, is receptive to her feelings so he picked up that something’s wrong when Mi Young was talking on the phone.
So although Gun was entirely happy to take Mi Young home, Daniel offered his services. Mi Young was adamant that she go home without Gun.
She also took the time to change into yet again another midi skirt ensemble. This A-line gingham skirt is a better option compared to the full-skirted ones. It fits her frame better.
Get Kim Mi Young’s Top (Jang Na Ra Blouse):
Get Kim Mi Young’s Skirt (Jang Na Ra Skirt):
Thyren Plaid Skirt, 251,100 Won
Her shoes are from Camilla by Babara.
The person who called Mi Young is none other than Se Ra, who has been wasting away after her break up with Gun. She asked Mi Young if she’s contented with a loveless marriage – with Gun only with her because of the child.
Also, here’s a better look at the bag Mi Young was toting.
Get Kim Mi Young’s Bag (Jang Na Ra Bag):
St. Scott London Satchel Bag, 265,000 Won
Get Kim Mi Young’s Watch:
GC Watches Black Strap Wristwatch, 286,900 Won
Daniel was still hovering somewhere, worried about Mi Young. He bumped into Se Ra and for a while, Se Ra’s top slipped a bit and revealed a scar at the back of her shoulder. The same scar Daniel’s long-lost sister has?
If she chose Gun over her career, she’ll become bitter over it in the long run. However, she really has to deal with her choices. It’s really hard to hate on Se Ra though seeing as how she has such a controlling mother.
Lee Gun is impeccably dressed but I think Daniel wins when it comes to the most attractive suits. I mean, this blue blazer? Cute!
Gun went home to find their conjugal room empty. He noticed a cup on the desk. It’s the cup Mi Young made for her baby. She nick-named her baby Gae-dong (dog poop), In their province, giving your baby an ugly and provincial moniker will guarantee that the baby will grow up strong.
Lee Gun took Daniel for a tour in their laboratories. As usual, both guys look imposing in their suits. But Daniel’s totally won me over. I love that check shirt and powder blue blazer.
Mi Young was at the premises of Gun’s company when she bumped into his lawyer. The lawyer, who was concerned about Mi Young, told her to brace herself because Gun called him to write up another contract.
The new divorce contract ate Mi Young up the whole day. It didn’t help that she found Se Ra’s cuff link gift to Gun at the back of his closet. It made her thin again of what Se Ra said to her.
Suddenly, Gun’s stepmom is in the room, looking for her. She wants to remind Mi Young about the upcoming auction. Mi Young is supposed to bring something expensive too so she can participate. But when she saw the Gae Dong mug, she changed her mind and told Mi Young not to bother bringing anything.
I think this dress is made from suede. It’s from Reneevon but has sold out already. I can’t find it online.
When the Mi Young visited the restaurant the next day, the family is convening at one of the tables. Her mom is berating his brother-in-law for accepting money from Gun. Turned out the money they used to buy the restaurant came from Gun.
Mi Young, who was already emotional from the new divorce contract and from what Se Ra planted in her mind, got angry that they took money from Gun. She cried and made everyone worried.
I love the lace details of Mi Young’s dress here. So very summery.
A better look at the details on Mi Young’s dress.
Get Kim Mi Young’s Dress (Jang Na Ra Dress):
GIVY Lace Dress, 347,580 Won
Get Kim Mi Young’s Bag:
Paul’s Boutique Maisy Neutral Neon Pink Bag, 122,000 Won
It’s the day of the auction. Mi Young has never looked better! Straight her suits her and that blazer dress is the perfect thing to wear for such an occasion. Daniel is looking spiffy in his pink suit as well. Pink suit on a guy! Only in kdramas.
Just when things are going right, the next object to be auctioned was Mi Yong’s Gae Dong mug. The stepmom submitted the mug to embarrass Mi Young. Seeing her distress, Daniel stepped to the podium and championed Mi Young’s art.
Lee Gun gave him a standing ovation. Both Daniel and Lee Gun bid on the mug. Much to the spectators’ shock, Lee Gun bid 30,000 on it.
Mi Young felt bad that Gun is yet again spending more money on her. She walked out after the mug has been sold and Gun ran after her. She explained about her fears and Gun kissed her – really kissed her.
By the way, Kim Mi Young’s blazer is from Bombyx M Moore (I don’t think it’s available online) and her clutch is from Kwanpan.
