He further explains that contract is an agreement between both parties, and they had agreed to do their best as a married couple. Their marriage is a lifetime contract, Yul declares, and that silences the entire room. Oy, if only really knew. In the bathroom, Da-jung giggles to recall the swoon-worthy statement before hurling again. Needless to say Da-jung still feels awkward around In-ho, who stops her from making another exit.
He hastily hides them before Editor Go sees. Back at the estate, Da-jung has Yul sit down to share a late-night snack together. He smiles at that. Then they share in an almost Lady and the Tramp moment over a shared noodle. Yul breaks away first and Da-jung slurps it up.

Yul tsks and points to the trail left on her face. The kids assume that the adults were about to kiss, and then proceeds to tease them for it. Man-se happily chirps the story to the staff in the morning, and they eat it up readily. I love how the housekeeper hints that the kiss was nothing compared to what she walked into.

Da-jung takes offense when Yul sighs why he has to put up with such an unpleasant misunderstanding. She says she never asked him for his help, all while cornering him into the wall. A little later, the housekeeper wonders why Da-jung is still here when the prime minister and children went off skating.
Reporter Byun apologizes to Joon-ki for his failed mission and vows to find the ones who stole his photos. That prompts Joon-ki to ask if those were the evidence he was talking about, and the reporter shows off the copies on his phone.
Hye-joo spots the two together at the golf course, and calls In-ho to confirm his suspicions. In-ho picks up a tail of his own, however, and is it just more or do those shoes look oddly familiar? She charges past them complete with an awesome hair flip, and when the gossipy friends offer to give her what for, Madam Na says Hye-joo is stronger than she looks.
He finds it hard to believe that rumor has it that the prime minister and wife are a doting couple, which is more than one could say about his own marriage. I gotta agree with her on that. She cries that she just wanted to spend time with him, just like how she heard that Yul is off skating with his family. At the skating rink, Man-se says that it would have been nice if ajumma joined them. Hm, did their mother bring them here? He tells her to do whatever she wants then, but breaks into a smile when he turns away.
Yul leads his family in a speedskating lesson, and walks Da-jung through the steps himself. He catches her when she nearly falls and holds her hands for balance, of course. Joon-ki remarks that Yul has sure changed a lot with his display of public affection and even spending time with his family. Da-jung hurriedly ushers him away, and Madam Na seethes. We check back in with Hee-chul, who hands over the snowball fight photos to In-ho.
She hits a sore spot when she asks if In-ho confessed his feelings for Da-jung yet, and is impressed to find out that he already has. She asks where he gets that kind of courage from.I Decided To Confess [No Time For Love] ep.8 ENG SUB • dingo kdrama
Joon-ki gets a call from In-ho to meet up before he exchanges goodbyes with Yul and his family. Yul ponders over those words that evening, and finds a bowl of his favorite strawberry ice cream with a sketch by Da-jung waiting for him in his study. But the ice cream remains untouched and melts by morning. Happy-go-lucky Da Jung takes it a day at a time, but stoic and hesitant Yul tries to put up a fight despite it being a losing proposition already. Hye Joo is turning out to be less vindictive and more pathetically hopeless.
It was enlightening to hear In Ho point out that Joon Ki pretty much has a contract marriage with his rich wife as well, making it clear that any marriage based on need and mutual agreement on certain terms is no less a contract of sorts. Its clear Da Jung and Yul are giving their marriage a shot in everything other than the love part which makes it as valid as any marriage where each party fulfills the duties of husband, wife, and parent.
I continue to love all the conversations and dialogue in this drama and the quick resolution of any disagreement between Yul and Da Jung emphasizes how thoughtful and considerate they are of each other. They may not see eye-to-eye, but they are not averse to looking at the situation through the lens of the other person.
Da Jung is winning over the support of the kids little by little without a lot of fanfare using only care and affection. I can accept that her optimistic personality is probably the reason In Ho started to like her as well, and his candor in confessing his feelings to her did make my heart twinge for a second since he looked so sincere.
Da Jung runs after the errant Woo Ri and clearly needs some lessons on basic traffic signals because she darts into the cross walk after the light turns red. In perfect K-drama coincidence, a truck happens by and is about to mow Da Jung down and end our drama early until Yul magically appears and pulls her to safety. They roll a few times sadly the rolling is done in public and not anywhere in the sack and land by the sidewalk. Da Jung is surprised to see hubby here and Yul understandably yells at her for yet another impetuous near disaster averted.

She gets up and he tries to only to yelp in pain. Hye Joo is holding yet another one of her press conferences when she hears of the near accident and informs gathered reporters. Da Jung and Yul are both checked into the hospital, with Da Jung being fine but Yul going in for x-rays. He comes back and reveals his pinky is fractured. Hye Joo is annoyed that Yul got hurt trying to save Da Jung. Yul tells Hye Joo and In Ho to go handle the reporters. She is but is worried about him and wonders why he rushed in to save her.
He reminds her that he is doing his duty as a husband per their contract, and he thought about why she concealed information about Woo Ri and realized she is doing her duty as a wife.
Yul tells her to get dressed and they are leaving now before he needs his blood pressure checked.
Yul and Da Jung walk out with her clutching his arm but the position is awkward so Yul drapes his arm around her to show their solidarity before the reporters. Hye Joo and In Ho follow behind looking peeved as usual. Reporter Byun goes to the precinct where Yul tried to get Da Jung arrested as a stalker and talks to the cops by being friendly and bearing energy drinks.
Woo Ri is in his room when Man Se pops by to inform his hyung and their dad is home and gets a glare in return.
I would be more contrite, Woo Ri, since you almost turned your step-mother into truck roadkill. Yul and Da Jung return to their bedroom and she offers to help undress him since his hand is bandaged. She helps take off his jacket, his tie, and then tries to unbutton his shirt only to send a button flying.
Yul immediately pulls his shirt closed and asks if Da Jung is a pervert? Yul orders her out and she heads to find Man Se. Hye Joo is drinking alone and all I have to say is girlfriend needs a boyfriend really badly.
She calls In Ho out to drink with her but he declines since he has another engagement. He reminds Joon Ki that he has his own contract marriage. Yoon Hee is practicing seduction techniques and tries it on Joon Ki when he comes home. Joon Ki is neither amused nor interested and ignores her as usual. She tries to cajole him to not be mad at her dad. Joon Ki tells her to leave the room and she does.

Joon Ki thinks about what In Ho wants him to do to Yul and realizes he means business. Yul looks at a picture of his kids and zeroes in on the rebelling Woo Ri. He stands up and goes to the window to brood. Da Jung comes in to get him for breakfast and pauses when he turns around to look at her.
His presence flusters Da Jung and she quickly leaves his study. She grabs her heart outside and wonders why its beating so fast. Da Jung is sewing frogs on the bed while Yul gets ready for work at his desk. She sees a halo around him and a heart pops out from her eyes and she swoons at him. Da Jung goes outside to practice kendo and clear her head. Yul comes by and corrects her moves and gets behind her to show her to correct positioning.
The President knows about the port construction and asks him to keep the country running. Yul wants the project reassessed and if there are any evaded taxes it can be collected to use for the people.
He wants to do things right despite the President urging him to not cause any problems.
Yul and Hye Joo leave the Blue House and she wonders what he will do if the President ends up opposing his strategy? Hye Joo invites him to lunch but Yul declines to go home and spend time with his kids.
In Ho asks if it was a reporter and Dad says it was someone claiming to be a fan of Yul. Dad turns around and asks In Ho is he if dating anyone since he is an eligible bachelor.
The editor thinks this would make a good story and wonders if the Prime Minister knows about his wife and aide being so close? When Na Ra is asked about her homework, she reveals Da Jung thinks kids having fun is more important. Yul then imagines Da Jung chiding him for berating the kids at the dinner table. His kids stare at him oddly and each of them decline his offer to practice kendo after lunch. Someone is missing his wifey.
In Ho finds the lurking Scandal News reporters at the hospice and chides them for following him and Da Jung. He threatens to tell Da Jung unless they quietly leave.
Da Jung is walking outside when In Ho tosses snow at her. She packs a snowball and throws it right back and they engage in a feisty snowball fight. Yul waits for Da Jung at home, checking his phone constantly.
Yul is sewing more frogs for Da Jung when he gets distracted and pricks his finger. Yul walks outside and finds Man Se waiting in the cold for Da Jung to come home. Da Jung pulls up and Man Se runs into her arms for a hug. After In Ho leaves, Da Jung asks why Yul is outside and he claims he came out for fresh air and is totally not here to wait for her.
Even Man Se looks puzzled. Yul and Da Jung go back to their bedroom and he sits down at the desk and wonders why In Ho never told him about his brother at the hospice. Da Jung says she found out from her dad as well. Da Jung then switches to perfect wife mode and brings Yul his paperwork, hot cocoa, and changes the toilet paper roll in the bathroom. Yul orders Da Jung to tidy up the room and she eagerly does so.
