After completing the dinner they departed from each other.  Then he decided to go and get the money but there are people in there in order to avoid suspicion he left without entering the office.

Then by night, IU decided to steal the money from his desk.  She got a help form the night watchman who turned off the power so that CCTV won’t work.  Then she entered the building and stole the money from the desk and left undetected.

He suspected IU for taking his money from the desk so he approached her but she ignored him without any response.  The  Do Joon Young (Kim Young-min) got a call from another phone he uses to call Yoon-Hee (Lee Ji-Ah) when he was with Director Park whom he wanted to get rid of to become president of the company.  IU took the phone from his pocket and rejected the call thus saved him from getting caught.

She met the Do Joon Young (Kim Young-min) and said that she saw the same number Lee Sun Kyun saved as the wife.  Then they made a deal that she will help him kick out Lee Sun Kyun and Director Park whom he failed to get rid off and she will get 10 Million Won for each one of them.

My Reviews:

My Opinion about the drama is that you should definitely watch this drama.  The story is similar to Just Between Lovers I mean a sad story of the two people.  Here only thing is that the main lead is a married one and IU is gonna be his partner.  I really hate that.  At least the main lead should not have married in this drama.  Because of that, I don’t like it.  If he was a young man then the drama would have a nice one.

Other than that I am really enjoying this drama.  I am sure those who like the drama ‘Just Between Lovers’ will definitely like this drama.

After IU made the deal with Do Joon Young (Kim Young-min) I am really curious what is going to happen to both of them.  Lee Sun Kyun is also pitiful who does not know that his wife is having affairs and IU looks pitiful as she has to take care of her grandmother and the brother.  As for the Lee Sun Kyun wife Yoon-Hee (Lee Ji-Ah), I really hate her for having affairs with someone else.

With first two episode taken into account, I am giving the drama a rating of 9/10.  Maybe I might dislike the drama in the future.

  1. For me, My Mister is compelling viewing. There is superb acting all round and the story, although difficult to take at times, is done in a way that shows the rawness that people can feel and go through. For me, I hope the relationship doesn’t become a romantic one. And, yes I agree, the wife is despicable (obviously they lost their boy, which is sad and perhaps the basis for the estranged relationship), falling for the great manipulator and not really questioning his motives! I’m happy to give it 10/10 after three episodes

  2. I have watched episode 1 so far, and 40 minutes watching it, I really don’t know what will happen, what is this story about (because haven’t watched any trailer) and honestly I skipped other scenes. I got bored watching the drama, it only got a spice when the bribe money have been delivered and IU saw it. To be honest, I’m feeling down while watching the drama maybe because of the story and life of IU or something? Dunno… 🙂


    • If you can hang in there and watch a bit more you will start to see an amazing story that unfolds regarding how two people (and others) come to care about each other when there are many trying to drag them down.

      Granted, some of it is tough viewing. As much as there are some stark moments, there are very warm moments as well. The three brothers are great together. UI’s grandmother is a gem and the bad guys start to get their comeuppance.

      UI’s character turns in a wonderful performance as does the male lead. UI comes to understand that there are people who will care for her with no questions asked.
