Divorce Lawyer in Love Episode 4 Recap

The 4th episode gave more background on our leading man and woman. Turns out he was in a subway accident. A woman helped him out. He wonders if it might have been our leading lady.


Ko Cheok Hee (Cho Yeo Jeong) is not liked at the law firm. Recall she agrees to a vote. If the majority of the team wants her fired, she’ll leave willingly. Bong Min Gyu (Shim Hyung Tak) leads the vote among the office. The swing vote is our lawyer leading man, So Jung Woo (Yeon Woo Jin). He is torn. Originally he wanted her gone. But now he sees the job is important to her. She’s trying to make this work even though she is back at the bottom of the pecking order. He ends up voting for her. She stays!


Min Gyu tells Jo Soo A (Wang Ji Won) that Jung Woo’s vote made the difference so that Cheok Hee could stay with the law firm. Soo A is not happy about that revelation.


Min Gyu’s father tells him to fire Cheok Hee. Min Gyu does not readily agree to the request.

Next we get into the next divorce case. Wife is mad husband is cheating on her again. She has a crane (yes you read that correctly) lift her to the exterior window of the lover’s apartment. She spies her husband, his lover and her engagement ring on the lover’s finger. Jung Woo goes up via a crane too and talks her out of breaking the exterior window. It is a bit ridiculous.

Things look bad for the wife at the police station. The husband’s lawyer is smart and capable. The wife is put in a holding cell. Jung Woo manages to get eh wife released because of her young daughter.

Jung Woo and Cheok Hee wonder how to get the wife out of the mess she made for herself.

We learn Jung Woo was in a subway accident years ago and he is still skittish about subways. A mystery woman saved him by giving him a mint and an exit from the subway. He wonders if the mystery mint woman might be Cheok Hee.

Cheok Hee and Jung Woo brainstorm how to save their client. LOL that Cheok Hee holds the Chucky doll and claims stroking the doll is soothing.


dll_ep4_10aJung Woo has a nice conversation with his mother. She admits that getting divorced from her father allowed her to evolve into the real her. She is strong and independent something she could not achieve married. Best moment of the show.

dll_ep4_9The wife in the divorce case makes her former sister-in-law unhappy that she’s back.


Gently Jung Woo asks the daughter to help even things up by getting information on his cell phone. She agrees to make it a fair fight between her parents. Cheok Hee is impressed by Jung Woo’s sensitivity towards the daughter.

The daughter is able to send evidence from her father’s cell phone to Jung Woo.

Cheok Hee learns Jung Woo voted to have her stay in the office.

dll_ep4_12Cheok Hee and Jung Woo head to the rendezvous location for the husband to catch him in the act. Their coworkers imagine what could happen between them.

Final Thoughts
* This episode was a bit of a step back. The divorce case double crane scene was silly. The subway accident was not impressively staged or produced.  Good points of the episode – 1) Jung Woo’s conversation with his mother (who told him divorce had allowed her to evolve to her authentic self). 2) Jung Woo talking to the daughter of the parents in the divorce case. His gentle care was nice too see. Cheok Hee admired him in that moment.

    Yay! You’re recapping this show! I haven’t found recaps anywhere else. I’ll admit that episodes 1-4 were rather blah for me and I wasn’t sure I would continue but 5-6 were great and totally drew me in. Kind of like shine or go crazy, which also had a slow start. Can’t wait to hear what you think of 5-6.
