Ruby Ring | 루비반지 EP.1 [SUB : ENG,CHN / 2014.03.24]
Episode 1 I’m Jeong Runa People say I’m a bad woman, ruthless desire personified, an evil femme fatale I don’t care what they say because what they say doesn’t affect me Don’t you have desires? Does having desires make me evil? Are desire and ambition different? Look deep within yourself You just never had the opportunity I told you not to say anything The thing is Shut up Just don’t say anything Runa, stop it. Slow down No. Slow down Stop it, Runa Stop it Oh, no! Oh, no! This was the moment my life started going on a downward spiral Or perhaps it had begun before then My fatal ruby red desire led me on a path of self-destruction, but destruction only makes me stronger I won’t give up my desire, dream, or love And I will never have any regrets Who would dare cast stones at me? No. Go ahead and cast your stones at my desire and ambition Chuncheon Ms. Park, I heard you dropped me This isn’t right They say writers reign supreme these days, but you shouldn’t play games with people Pardon? What are you doing here? Let’s talk outside Let go. I have nothing to discuss with you Come on. I’ll explain Listen, Ms. Jeong Let go of me Explain yourself Cat got your tongue? What’s the matter with you? Have you lost your mind? We could’ve talked about it later in private It pisses me off I was all set to be the main emcee

Send her the money She said she needed new clothes to do a TV report on buckwheat noodles But you know how she is Didn’t you see all the clothes the dry cleaner’s dropped off? She has a mountain of clothes She’s bought so much for her supposed TV reporting gig She spends more than she makes But don’t celebrities these days get free clothes through stylists? You don’t say She bought several outfits for the Soyang Dam report But on TV, she was in huge rain boots and totally covered up in a raincoat She’ll be the death of me I’d love nothing more than for her to get married Runa will find a great husband She has a knack for using men Pardon? The person you are trying to reach Oh, my goodness Hey there It’s me Don’t you remember me? Was it Hyeyeong? Oh Hyeyeong? It’s been so long. Good to see you Why? You left your phone here, didn’t you? The head of the team’s been looking for you
Really? Ms. Jeong, you’re back Come with me Where to? The executives are in a meeting and want a status report But Ms. Seo has to do it Didn’t Ms. Seo go to Juni? Yes, but So you need to do it Hurry Hyeryeon, the report’s printed, right? Yes Oh, no. The report. Thanks Hello. Hello Our new director will introduce himself I’m Bae Gyeongmin Nice to meet you The chairman told me the Chuncheon branch has such strong fundamentals that I will have to learn from you And I’m ready to do just that I’m still young and inexperienced, so I ask you for your guidance Good job We’ll start with Marketing Team 1’s presentation We will first report on where things stand right now Juni has been delaying the signing of the deal we have to close today, so I sent Ms. Seo there to get it done in person As for the Hoban Concert planning, Ms. Jeong Ruby will provide you a detailed update Ms. Jeong, what’s keeping you? Right Are you okay? Oh, no Here’s the receipt Thank you. Come again Soyeong, let’s take a break Ow, my neck Let’s have the watermelon we got earlier Okay Man, I’m tired Did Runa call again? I guess she gave up Runa never gives up That good-for-nothing Runa will be the death of me She’s always been such a troublemaker Why can’t she be more like Ruby? Gilja, cut Ruby some slack Despite it all, she can be so affectionate I find Runa more endearing than straitlaced Ruby Endearing? Give me a break You’ve had it so tough, Gilja, raising those twins on your own When you go to heaven, my brother will thank you a million times over Enough already You’re responsible for half of my woes Me? Are you serious? You’re an old maid massaging chicken thighs all day How can I not be worried? My goodness You also massage chicken thighs all day just like me Good heavens Okay. Fine Then let’s order only roosters Wouldn’t it be better to massage male rather than female thighs? We’re all single ladies here You’re too much Why haven’t the girls called? Yes, Ms. Seo

The man you were set up with last year wasn’t a bad catch But he was a widower I’m only marrying a first-timer I’ve never been married Even first-timers these days are said to be open to divorcees and single mothers You shouldn’t be so picky If the man’s decent, that’s good enough Why don’t you introduce me to a real man then? My goodness Why would I do that? I’m just as desperate for a man too Pardon? Say, I wonder why the girls are out late and haven’t called yet Maybe they’re partying because it’s Friday What do you know about partying?
