Episode 6 sure starts off in the weirdest way possible. I was personally watching the beginning scene for like 5 minutes, going, did I miss an episode somewhere? 


But thank goodness, it was just Baek Jun (played by Kang So Ra) having strange dreams from drinking too much. Strange dreams where she accidentally slept with her 3rd-generation chaebol problem Byun Hyuk (played by Super Junior's Siwon) and now they have to get married. Ohp, what do you know, by the end of the series we realize that the dream was actually the most accurate summary of the entire story ever. We'll see about that!

This is all y'all going 'Is this reviewer okay in the head?' isn't it?


So the men in charge decided that they don't want "young people" influencing the older workers and causing riots. They plot to get Jun and Hyuk fired from the cleaning jobs. The perfect opportunity to do just that happens to pop up thanks to Jun getting sick from a cold + overworking. 



But how does Jae Hoon know all this private information about Jun? /Creeper/


During all this tension, Hyuk discovers that his older brother Byun Woo Sung (played by Lee Jae Yoon) is the one responsible for treating his janitor team unfairly. More specifically, Hyuk overhears Woo Sung talking with the evil head of the outsourced cleaning department, director Min, and realizes just what Woo Sung thinks of his little brother - someone useless and worthless, existing to do nothing but cause trouble. Regardless of the fact that Hyuk has been this clueless pea brain who only believed what he wanted to believe about the people around him, realizing that your brother thinks nothing of you and wants you to fail, is a hard hit. Still, Hyuk is able to overcome this realization, and decides to help fight alongside the janitors in earning rights for themselves.

Meanwhile, we have Kwon Jae Hoon (played by Gong Myung) on the other hand, who is doing everything he's supposed to be doing to play the part of the perfect second-male-lead by doing literally EVERYTHING for Jun. Last episode, he gave Jun's mom a huge amount of money, and this week, he takes care of her hospital situation all with a snap of his finger. But while all of his actions say "Yes" to the question of boyfriend material, his verbal communication skills scream "No". He doesn't know how to say anything to Jun other than that what she believes in is wrong, and what he believes in is right. When will he learn not to shut a girl down like that?



We are, Super Junior!


Then finally, the episode arrives at its climax - how to save the cleaning department employees from being fired, and instead earn spots as official employees of Kang Soo group. Passing off the workers' plans to stand and strike as old fashioned, Byun Hyuk leads the crew in a gaudy stage performance in front of his father, his family, and the entire company during an important company event. He then declares that his father, head of Kang Soo group, has decided to accept the cleaning department employees as official employees, without his father's consent. Now this... I just can't imagine this being even close to a realistic situation. Setting aside the fact that this is a fictional drama about a chaebol and his unusual family and friends, Hyuk's declaration was really just downright selfish and unruly. I'm genuinely unsure how the drama's script writers plan on picking up next week.
