Cheese in the Trap Part 3 Chapter 16 - Threat (2)
After class, Sul heads over to talk to Min Soo. She seems to want to talk, but Min Soo panicks. She thinks, "Did I stare too much? Wh...what do I do? What do I do? It wasn't on purpose...! Scary... scary. But does she really need to come and complain about it? How harsh..." As she tries to run away and Sul tries to talk to her, Min Soo's bag spills open. Her bag is filleed books and note books. One of her note books says "Goal List," and she also has other romance novels such as "The Count's Bride Candidate" that are about princes and other traditional romance stories. Sul seems a little surprised, and Min Soo panicks as other start to wander what's going on. Sul suddenly feels bad when she sees Min Soo seriously flustered and ofers to help out. As Min Soo picks up her stuff, Sul sees her lost cellphone strap. Min Soo snatches it away. Sul tries to talk, but Min Soo immediately cuts her off, saying, "I...It's mine!" Sul finds this supsicious, seeing how she didn't say anything but Min Soo reacts almost defensively. Sul asks, "Did you buy it yourself? I was just wondering if you found it on the ground somewhere. If you did, then..." Min Soo acts defesnively, insisting that she bought it. Bo Ra then intervenes, saying, "Hey! Hong? Isn't that your doll?" Min Soo still insists that she bought it, and when asked where she bought it, she responds that she bought it at the "K-Art" supply store in front of the school. Sul wants ask more, but ends up leaving. People are wondering what happened, and Sul seems dismayed that she never got to talk about what she actually wanted to talk about.
As Sul leaves, Da Young tells Young Gon that she needs to talk to Min Soo. Apparently Min Soo's in her group, but she finds Min Soo's actions rather detrimental and even embarrassing to Min Soo herself. Young Gon says that if Da Young guides her with leadership, things will probably work out.
At the K-Art shop, the male employee tells Sul, Bo Ra, and Eun Taek that while he doesn't remember every product, he hasn't seen a lion shaped doll in store recently. A passing by female employee says that the last time it was released was a month ago. Bo Ra is outraged that Min Soo would lie like that and Sul is frustrated as well.
Min Soo is frustrated that she would lie like that. All she had to do was say that she forgot to hand it over to Sul. She begins to be irritated, as she didn't want to make any more mistakes, but seems to be continuously getting involved in trouble with Sul. As Min Soo walks, Young Gon stops her, and tells her, "You're really bad at communicating, you know? We're in the same department, but we've barely even talked." Young Gon seems to flirt with her a bit. They talk for a while, and then depart. Young Gon thinks to himself, "She's a piece of cake.... and the main target is the next - "
At school, Young Gon texts a friend that he's going to pull out his secret weapon today against the "rich sunbae." Da Young tells him to stop texting, and he says that he was just replying to a text. Sang Chul passes by, teasingly saying that Young Gon has changed a lot. Da Young talks to her friends about a musical, when they see Sul and Yoo Jung. They talk to each other, and then Sul seems to drag Yoo Jung off somewhere, and everyone is surprised to see Yoo Jung being led by Sul. They say, "I didn't know high and mighty Yoo Jung sunbae would be led by Sul like that. Sul's realy something, huh." The girls chatter that, "But I guess it's because she's so strong that she gets to date a guy like Yoo Jung sunbae." They even say that Yoo Jung seems cute. Young Gon seems to glare as he remembers how Sul seems so comfortable grabbing Jung.
Sul demands that they talk about In Ho, but Jung tries to change the topic by bringing up the rumor about Sul's pants. Sul calms down, and tell Jung that she really has to intervene at this point, and asks that Jung tell her if it feels like she's over-reacting about it. She tells him that she understands that In Ho's acting so strangely because of his injured hand, but at the same time, she doesn't understand why they fight so much about it. Jung claims that it's not his fault, but Sul points out that In Ho firmly believes it's Jung's fault. She says that they're fighting because of some misunderstanding, so they should try to calmly solve this out by talking. Jung says, "I have nothing to do with it. It's really the act of these other kids. What's the point in trying to talk to a kid that's convinced I did it? No matter what I say, he'll interpert it his own way. And I don't like to remember that incident either. I don't want to think about it much. I don't like any of this. I don't like how Baek In Ho suddenly pops out of no where and blames me. And it's irritating how he's hanging around you, Sul. I don't like how his sister randomly calls me and my father just to ask for more money. And I don't like how you're trying to understand their point of view when you're my girlfriend. Think about it. I don't want to be childish, but... My father provided those orphans a good school, a good education, and a house as well. But those two aren't even thankful. They only cause more trouble and even blame me without any sort of evidence. His sister's in her late twenties, but she's still asking us for money. And her little brother dumps his sister onto us and lives on his own. They've never tried to study or work to earn anything. And then they complain, 'why aren't you sending us the money? What do we do when nobody's providing for us?'.... When the money stops, it's obviously the provider's fault for them."
After listening to Jung's situation, Sul begins to understand that what he says is true - an adult should try to make a living for themselves. She thinks In Ho can somehow survive on his own, but his sister has serious issues to deal with. She then stops, realizing that this isn't really what she wanted to talk about. She realizes Jung is very persuasive, but in the end, she doesn't know who's fault this whole thing is. When he asks if she has anything else to say, she says she doesn't. He holds her hand, and rests his head. He says that he doesn't want to talk about this anymore, especially since he won't be coming to school much anymore. Sul decides to drop the topic, and pats his shoulder. They decide to meet up for dinner later.
Jung then receives a text from an unknown number. It says: "Professor Hwang wanted us to meet up for a moment at room 401 at 3pm~!" When Jung heads to the room, it's empty, and Young Gon greets him from behind. He says that there was something he wanted to tell Jung, especially since Jung won't be coming very often now that he's working as an intern. He says, "Isn't your life just great recently, sunbae? You were always popular. But now you're an intern at a large corporation - Got a young girlfriend - Everything's going so well for you. Everybody's dying with envy. Do you know that?" When Jung asks if that's all Young Gon has to say, he brings up the topic of Jung dating Sul. He says, "You two are just so cute together. I kinda wonder why you tried to set me up with Hong Sul before. How could you do that-?" Jung seems confused, and Young Gon claims, "Wow! Really, Yoo Jung! Your acting skills are great-! I knew you from a long time ago, sunbae-! You should tone it down, a bit, right? Or, shall we see how long you can put up this act?" Jung pulls up the textg message and asks if Young Gon was the one who sent it, but Young Gon acts like he doesn't know. As Young Gon snickers, Jung grins.
