Charlie thinks there's a chance Jin did it because "we saw him on the beach this morning," and Jack attempts to make the point that there's a considerable distance between getting angry at an interloper in a domestic squabble and torching the interloper's Ship Of Fools. This point is lost on everyone else. Kate elects not to use her superpower (i.e. talking) to back up Jack.
Meanwhile, Jin's entering the tent he shares with Sun, wincing and gasping from the livid burns he's got on his right forearm. Sun comes in just in time to check them out. All he tells her is, "I'm hurt." She gasps, "You did it?" Jin gives her a look of pain mingled with incredulity. Sun continues, "Michael was trying to get us off this island, why would you --?" "Michael?" Jin snarls, rising and wheeling on her. He looks at her as if he can't believe this is the conversation they're having, then huffs outside. Sun watches him go, baffled.
We then flash back to Jin silently sprinting up the stairs to his father-in-law's office. He's launching into a long spiel about some work-related mishap when Mr. Paik interrupts him to say, "I didn't call you here to reprimand you. I called to promote you. You will be my new special assistant." The bitter laughter of experience rings through the personality-free walls of the Lachey-Simpson McMansion in Calabasas. Jin barely has time to register this before he's told to deliver a message to Byung Han, the Secretary for Environmental Safety. And the message? "I'm very displeased."
Cut to Jin delivering the message. No, really. He repeats it word for word. Byung Han, who looks like he was expecting a less verbal, more violent form of communication, is so relieved, he gives Jin his daughter's puppy in gratitude. But you know what's really relevant about this scene? It's that Byung Han's daughter is watching television, and the person she's watching on television...is Hurley. No, really. It's Hurley on the television. HURLEY. Our Man of the Mellow himself. And now, having established that it's Hurley on the TV screen in the background, we can move on to other, ancillary details like how it seemed like Jin hated his job even before it dawned on him that his father-in-law was not perhaps the most scrupulous businessman in South Korea.
