Temptation Episode 7 Fashion Review
It seems like Na Hong Joo’s paranoia is justified because Cha Seok Hoon goes out of his way to help out Se Young. If it’s only to further his career or the irresistible pull of Se Young, we’ll probably find out soon.
The two found themselves in a shady and rundown place after chasing a guy who they thought is the real CEO Du. It is indeed him and he’s there in that abandoned place because he thought it’s still the restaurant he frequents before. He loved their ox tail soup and craves for it. So Seok Hoon strikes a deal. If he can find the owner of the place, CEO Du will have to give them a chance to compete in the deal.
Although the Jimmy Choos aren’t exactly made for running (Or are they? I reckon for the price of those, they should be comfortable enough for a bit of a run), Se Young seemed to have held her own. She’s also luckily in her Gucci pants ensemble.
After her confrontation with Se Young, who admitted she likes Cha Seok Hoon, Hong Joo simmers with pent-up anger. She angrily scrubs her soiled skirt but the stain refuses to budge, somewhat a metaphor for the current status of her marriage.
Na Hong Joo’s skirt is from:
Customellow Striped Midi Skirt (not available online)
Seok Hoon treats Se Young’s paltry injury after the negotiations.
Here’s Se Young’s gorgeous wood handle Gucci bag in full view.
Se Young is sporting a shift dress and a very long face. Lol. She really has a penchant penchant for color blocking. The bag she chose is a striking green crossbody bag.
The reason why Se Young is in the premises of Dongsung and is sporting a pouty face is because her dad gave her an ultimatum. It’s either she makes a living for herself or be cast out in the streets.
I really love Se Young’s subtle clashing of pieces. It’s not only the colors. In this look, for instance, she made her delicate off shoulder lace top look even more delicate by wearing it with dark wash skinny jeans. I’m a fan of this look!
Unnie gives her a job but not one she expects. She has to start from the lowest, Se Young said, and she shouldn’t tell anyone she’s related to the boss.
Se Young’s blue addiction is again evident in this look. Se Young comments on how lovely she looks and attributes this change to her wardrobe (really, I can’t point out the changes. Se Young has looked impeccable since day one) to finding a guy. As if on cue, Seok Hoon enters and asks for audience. Se Young all but shooed Se Jin away.
Yoo Se Young’s dress is from:
Hong Joo finally got her job at the hospital back. The head doctor asked why she’s back and if something happened to her plans of having another kid. Hong Joo answered cryptically. Before she left the office, the doctor got a call from Se Young. Hearing the name made Hong Joo pause.
Na Hong Joo’s cardigan here is from Mogg, her dress is from Minimum, her jeans are from True Religion and her bag is the same Lovcat bag she has been wearing.
What’s up with Han Ji Sun? She got home late, reeking of alcohol. And there’s that ahjumma vibes again.
Se Young and Seok Hoon set off to find the former owner of the ox tail soup restaurant. Se Young dressed down for the occasion in a plain white shirt, jeans and a woven cardigan. She almost looks identical with Seok Hoon, who is also dressed in jeans and a plain white shirt.
Yoo Se Young’s cardigan is from:
Loewe by J.W. Anderson SS15 Capsule Collection
And her bag is the:
Loewe Flamenco Knot Bag ($2690 at Loewe)
Everyone seems all dressed down today, huh? Min Woo’s also garbed in something comfortable – a shirt, shorts, cardigan and what looks like a pair of Birkenstocks.
Couple look? Seok Hoon left Se Young for a bit to ask for directions. When he came back, he found Se Young playing with the neighborhood kids in the lake. He joined them in no time and playfully splashed water on Se Young.
Yoo Se Young’s white shirt is from Alexander Wang and her necklace is from Chrome Hearts.
Looks like Dongsung company also owns a café because Se Jin has been stationed there. Hong Gyu teased her about the uniform but said it looks cute on her. This perked Se Jin up a little.
Se Young changed into this shirt that she must have packed with her because no way can you find an Alexander Wang piece in the rural area. They finally found the old lady who used to run the restaurant and she has agreed to make some more for them.
Yoo Se Young’s Sneakers are the:
Valentino Rockstud Camo Print Sneakers (sold out)
The two little girls are giving Roy a hard time. I was expecting Han Ji Sun to be a bit more heavy-handed on Roy but she seems to be docile.
The two helps the old lady to prep up the dish. As the boiling process takes hours according to the ahjumma, they’d have to stay the night and keep a close watch on it.
Meanwhile, Na Hong Joo’s family is celebrating her new job. Hong Gyu is happy she’s no longer working for Min Woo. He said Seok Hoon likes her best in her nurse uniform. This soured Hong Joo’s mood a little.
With the celebration going on at home, Hong Joo’s dad had a little too much to drink. He called Seok Hoon, berating him for being a bad husband. Hong Joo took the phone from him and apologized. At the background, Se Young tried to lift the pot’s handle and burned herself in the process. Seok Hoon rushed to help her out, leaving Hong Joo hanging.
Now that Hong Joo knows Seok Hoon is with Se Young, she is in an even worse mood. She rips their photo in two, symbolic of their marriage’s impending doom.
Na Hong Joo’s top is from All Saints, by the way.
Se Young finally confesses her feelings for Seok Hoon. He said he can’t reciprocate because he still loves his wife.
Meanwhile, Hong Joo gussies up in front of a mirror. Despite the usual bland color palette, she’s dressed more than usual. She notices her wedding ring in the mirror and took it off.
Na Hong Joo’s blouse is from Time.

Seok Hoon and Se Young delivers the freshly-made soup to CEO Du. Both took the time to change though. Se Young couldn’t have looked more corporate chic even if she tried. The ruffled details on her button down softened the suit outfit though.
Get Yoo Se Young’s Top:
Se Young’s suit is also from Gucci.
At work, Hong Joo keeps on spacing out. She got some things wrong and was scolded by the doctor for it.
CEO Du appreciated the soup and told Se Young she’s lucky to have such a dedicated assistant.
The soup trick was a success. The CEO agreed to give Dongsung company a fighting chance. Min Woo immediately thought Seok Hoon must be behind this.
Se Young seems unfazed by Seok Hoon’s rejection but the latter is uncomfortable with it. He tried to tender his resignation but Se Young brushed it off and said she has already moved on from the rejection.
Hong Joo invites Min Woo for a drink. When he got there, she’s already drunk. She asked him to sleep with her and wondered how much money he’s going to pay her for it.
Seok Hoon’s friend saw Hong Joo being practically carried by Min Woo and called Seok Hoon about it. He rushed to the hotel and let himself in after Min Woo opened the door.
