HERE'S AN ON THE SPOT TRANSLATION OF LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE
(Episode 17's Translation from Chinese)
HK puts on his pants: Did you sleep well?
HK: it's already morning
EC: Oh no, I'm going to get beaten to death by my mum, i didn't tell her i was staying out for the night
HK: I'll go with you to tell your mum
EC inside the blanket: No, i'll go myself. Where are my clothes.
HK: They've fallen over here, I'll pick it up for you
EC: It's okay, i'll pick it up myself (Picks up clothes while inside the blanket) I feel embarassed, Can you go somewhere else?
HK kneels down: I'm just looking at what's mine, what's wrong with that? (does his human telescope and picks up pillow) When did this fall down here?
EC: wait a moment
HK picks up EC and puts her onto the bed: You change clothes, I'll go...
HK: as light as cotton
the pair move outside for breakfast, dawn is breaking and the light shines on them in a surreal way
HK: After you’re gone, you won’t be able to eat this. Eat more.
EC: You need to ring often
HK: Don’t wear mini skirts. Tell everyone you have a boyfriend.
EC: Don’t tire yourself
HK: You need to take care
EC: Will be like you. Eyes, Ears, they’re mine.
HK: come on, I’ll carry. Before you do we need to go out on dates everyday.
the cute couple are now driving to the coffee shop, it appears they can't keep their hands off each other. Suddenly, EC gets a call from home
ES: Have you gone crazy? You were with Sajangnim Ajusshi last night, weren't you? Asking you is pointless. Listen, i said that after you did morning exercises you went back to the store, So don't come home and go straight to work.
EC: I understand, Thanks
ES: You owe me a big one, you know?
EC: i'm hanging up
ES: had the nerve to [get into trouble type of thing] before me...
on arriving at their coffee shop, HR is there to greet them in his usual spot by the window. being the type of person he is, he is immediately suspicious
HR: How come you came together?
HK: we met each other before/on the way
HR: Did you guys…
not because i don't love this couple, but right now at 2:53am in the morning, i really can't remember what type of scene this was - Hs&YJ were eating? no idea XD
YJ: What are we going to give to EC (as a gift)?
HS: give her airplane tickets
YJ: I really envy EC
HS: I envy HK, EC’s younger than him by six years
meanwhile, at the coffee shop, Harim is trying his best at playing detective and snoops around the palce trying to catch the couple in the act. he tries the counter and the kitchen to no avail before he realises the perfect hiding place - the bathroom. he smiles widely as he hears whispers and pushes the door open...
HK: be careful
HR: What are they doing in the bathroom? EC’s face has slimmed down. What is this situation?
SK: She’s like a player
HR: That’s not possible
in the evening, EC is doing what she does best and often - mopping the floor. HK takes advantage and gets her to sweep all over the place - EC naively obeys, not knowing the surprise HK has hidden for her
[indent[HK: Hey, why are you always cleaning? Is it because you're leaving that you're going things so half-assly (T/N: HHAHA that's my way of putting it -.-) You can't be like that, you should clean until it's squeaky clean
EC: okay i understand, squeaky clean
HK: Don't wipe where it's already been wiped. See here, You need to wipe the corner as well.
EC: I've already wiped there
HK: you need to be more careful, you need to wipe there
EC: I understand, need to continue wiping down there
HK: Here's alright, i'll wipe. The places that aren't easy to wipe, should be left to you. You have strength.
EC: Don't you have anything to do? (i.e. are you really that bored?)
HK: Don't have anything to do? Are you looking down on sajangnim? Just continue doing what i've told you to do. There, by the door, it's accumulated alot of dust,
EC: i understand
HK: Here, like this. Where are you going? Not there. WOAH..what is this? Open it up and take a look? (OMFG CAN HK CAN ANY CUTER???)
EC: They're shoes...[/indent]
EC is unimpressed, but gets dragged by HK into the main area to try on the shoes
HK: Come try it on
EC: Can't, they're the customers...
HK: Baristas need to stand for long periods of time, so your shoes definitely need to be comfortable
EC: Did sajangnim hide these? How did you now how big my feet were?
HK: the size of one hand/ it's one hand long
EC: you really move people's hearts
EC: Thank you, but i feel bad. I don’t have anything to give to you
HK: you have something you could give me, scratch my back
EC: you need to have a (rubbing) bath
HK: even when we’re old, you need to rub
EC: giving shoes will mean running away (like giving her shoes will mean she leaves?)
HK: I’ve already stuck label in the shoes
(In EC's shoes it says, "you are mine")
it's after work, and the lovely couple are in their separate homes talking on the phone. i love how as they're talking on the phone, both grab hold of pillows as if to hug the other. or am i thinking too much?
EC: I want to know if the type sajangnim likes is similar to Yoojoo unni
HK: How did you know? Originally I had a merciful vitality. Besides me, who can accept you/who would want you?
EC: You're not the style i like either. I like my dad's type. But when you smile, you're like my dad
HK: Don’t you know that my eyes are really mesmerizing, have you fallen asleep? If you don’t hang up the phone what am I going to do?
HK tries to no avail to wake EC from her sleep, so he laughs to himself as he listens (ah he's so in love XD). before we know it, it's morning, and EC's snoring is still playing over loudspeaker. HK wakes up to her noises, like an old married couple but via telephone
HK: EC, hurry and wake up
HK: I’ll wake you up? You’re mum’s calling you to eat
EC: See you in a little bit[/i]
it's a new day at the coffee shop, but sadly, also EC's last day. a day filled with tears and farewells..each of the princes take turns saying goodbye. it's nothing short of heartbreakingMr.Hong
Mr. Hong: Go pack up your luggage
EC: Take care when eating, get along well with my mum. Ajusshi, you know I like you right? Your clothes are torn.
MY: nun-nim (big sister)
EC: What is this?
MY: A present. Make up. Even though nun-nim is not as pretty as eunsae. With makeup you should be alright. Don’t worry about your mum and eunsae.
EC: With you, I can relax
EC: What are you doing?
SK: You need to come back without trouble. I believe in you
EC: thank you
HR: I haven’t prepared anything
EC: I really like you, you know that? Don’t cry…
HR’s letter: “My Chan, hope you can go abroad smoothly. I’m not worried about you, but be aware of men. Even if other men wink/flirt at you, don’t be moved. I’ll lean towards you. Dreams will come true (?).”
EC: “Dreams will comes true” I don’t want to go
Meanwhile, YJ is over at her house, HS's house doing the laundry. She's complaining to HS about her lack of social life when she suddenly feels pangs of pain. HS worriedly headtails back home and the next thing we know, YJ is in hospital with the air purifierat home:
YJ: Ajusshi, for you child I am making effort
HS: wait for me, I’m going to eat dinner
at the hospital:
HS: sleep a little while longer
it's nighttime, and HK and EC are talking on the phone again. This time HK, being the one with more travelling experience, is giving EC packing tips. They tiptoe around the topic of EC's departure tomorrow but neither of them can bare to really talk about it. It seems HK's not the only one upset about EC leaving; ES and their mum are separating from EC for the first time in many years...EC talks to HK on the phone while packing luggage with her mum as helper
HK: I’ll go there in winter. I’ll bring you winter clothes as gifts
EC: Mum, prepare the chilli sauce
HK: they have it over there. Have you prepared medicine? I’m really worried. I’m not going to the airport.
EC: I know. I’ll ring you.
EC Mum: Be careful of the food when you get there. Be aware of strangers.
EC: Don’t worry about it.
It's a heartbreaking sight when EC leaves. Those at the coffee shop are left feeling empty, while HK breaksdown as he drives...at the coffee shop
Mr Hong: It’s already feeling stuffy/melancholic
MY: we should have sent her off
Mr Hong: Has the plane taken off yet?
airport scene - EC & the telephone; HK & his mini
EC: I didn’t let mum and ES come out
HK: You brought the landlord’s phone number, right? Ring once you get there.
EC: I know. Take care. I love you. I love you. I love you.
HK: I know.
i LOLed at the "two years later", just because i know so many of you DIDN'T want it...XD moving on...
it's been two years, and we see HK walking to his fridge where a multitude of EC photo's in Italy *cough* have been plastered. There are different messages, EC's is sporting a slightly more feminine hair style and clothes. HK kisses
his fridgeEC good morning
EC: 2008, April. September. November. Here, there’s quite a few good-looking guys chasing after me.
by the fortune of sajangnim and halmoni. I miss you. I love you. Accept my kiss.
HK is driving along in his car, talking to EC, when she hits him with a bomb - she's not ready to come back yet...frustrated he pulls up onto the sidekerbHK: Have you ordered the plane tickets yet?
EC: Still haven’t gotten them ready yet. I want to learn a bit more
HK: can’t do
EC: Should I give up then?
HK: no problem, right?
EC: I’m hanging up[/i]
we see HK taking a integral part in his family's enterprise and that they are preparing themselves for a new Coffee Prince outlet. the coffee princes are frustrating themselves with the opening coming up soon...With the added workload, they have recruited a new GASP girl:
[indent]HR: Just because I saw a girl, it becomes this. Fine, let it be like that. Why is the door like this? What’s kind of theme is coffee princess?
HK: How’s the modelling job going? Take ES home earlier.
MY: You always send EC nun-nim home really late
Saiyin (the new girl I’m guessing let’s just initial her NewGirl): How are you? I recognise you. I’m 24 years old
HS comes in through the doors of a fine-dining restaurant and we see YJ with some spastic hair...HS: Sorry, I’m late.
YJ: So late today, later on you’ll live worse off. It’s our wedding anniversary and no flowers?
HS: Why do we need flowers? My wife is the flowers. I’ve booked a hotel room.
Meanwhile, at the coffee shop, the princes continue to be whining woman (that we love, mind you)Mr. Hong: The store’s full of woman. It’s tiring right?
SK: EC can do the work of three people.
Mr. Hong: I thought she left
HR: All the women here are extraordinary. How come EC’s not coming back?
MY: she’s betrayed us (T/N: I think =.=)
SK: force her to come back then
HK: need to learn whatever (T/N ._. I suck)
[i]meanwhile, it's a small world and we see Mr. Hong get some closure regarding the love of his life. whose pretty, by the way, but still a cheating orange. he is shopping with Sunki when he bumps into her and her happy family...SK should be his gay wife XDSK: eat as you please
Mr. Hong: I’ll make you some delicious foods?
woman: can see you’re doing well
Mr. Hong: One child?
Woman: Still running a coffee shop? Still one person? I wish for you to meet someone better.
Mr. Hong: I heard you got married
Woman: the days pass by alright
Mr. Hong: Not bad…
SK: Let’s go
Woman: Go. This time, I’ll stay.
Mr. Hong: Then I’ll leave first for once.
the threesome - Mr. Hong, the butcher, and EC's mum have their regular chats outside the butcher shop...it's nice to see even old-ish single people have friends XDButcher: EC’s getting married, and after ES’s gotten married – when can we get married?
Mr Hong: Wouldn’t it be better to just cover up with a blanket? I saw my first love. The child looks like me, The eyes look like me...
EC’s mum: His habit, he even says EC looks like him.
Surprisingly, after two years, player Harim is STILL with his star...they're at a park enjoying a little night snack...HR: don’t be angry
Girl: Let’s not see each other anymore
HR: Really? I understand. Goodbye
Girl: When you get angry, your eyebrows slope downwards. I heard your family’s hospital closed [T/N: ]
HR: it’s not problem, it’ll reopen
Girl: you’re really (someone who has a way with words? No idea). It’ll be alright?
HR: The lights at this school are too bright
Girl: the laboratory?
HR: I don’t like, let’s go quickly
HS and YJ are sleeping, when YJ suddenly awakes. She climbs out of bed and onto the patio fiddling with a pair a baby socks...HS: can’t sleep? Do you want to drink some milk? I won’t think anything i shouldn't
YJ: will hoping again be too much?
HS: don’t go to the hospital, you can’t take it anymore
YJ: let’s go on a trip
HS: let’s not go anywhere
HK is miserable with the turn of events. He's jogging direction-lessly and keeps ringing EC whose put her phone on italian voice message. heavily korean accented italian XD. The Coffee Prince team are still operating, even with the new girl in toll...we find out she's interested in making waffles and speaks fluent japanese - HI SUNKIHK: how come you’re not picking up the phone? You need to return. I’ll let you learn for one more year. EC, return quickly. I miss you.
Mr. Hong: resume? [t/n: thank you crankybaka]
HK: what to do?
NG: How can you make this so well? I studied abroad in Japan
SK: said you were obedient
HK is at a coffee shop interviewing potential employees, when this time - he is in for a surprise]/i]
Interviewed chick: Actually, I feel like the salary’s a bit low
HK: I understand
EC: Sajangnim! Have you finished interviewing? Did you wait long? I’m here for the interview, I heard you were recruiting.
HK: qualifications/resume? Are you male or female?
EC: I’m a girl. I only eat 4 meals, have great strength, and award-receiving experience, I’m also very hardworking. If need be, I can make you rice/meals. (They hug and EC sits on his lap publicly XD)
HK: how come you didn’t contact me
While driving back to the shop...
EC: smell so good
EC: still the same as before, very sexy
HK: because of you I have shadows under my eyes
EC: aren’t you happy? Because I needed to go, we got to kiss everyday
HK: then we should get married
EC: aren’t you busy opening the new store
HK: why are you like this?
EC: I’m EC

Halmoni: when commencing work?
HK: See you tomorrow
Halmoni: EC said to keep it secret
HK’s mum: EC doesn’t have money, yet she prepared a present for you

Back at the coffee shop, they see EC in girly getup and are surprised...
