Best Love is so zany not because it forces the laughter on us in a “look at me, aren’t I so clever” way. The humor is pretty standard and somewhat pedestrian, but it’s in the delivery and execution that makes it work. And hidden in all the laughter and goofball antics is a beating sincere heart behind this story. Everyone has said this, but it merits repeating again – I cannot wait to watch the fake dating show Couple Making Season 3.
Written preview for episode 3:
Using expensive medicine to apologize, will that be accepted?
Ae Jung is worried about her countenance, not wanting anyone to see her pathetic state, so she gets into Dokko Jin’s car and they leave. They pull over at the nearby park, which is when some ahjummas mistakenly think that Ae Jung is Jin’s wife. To avoid any potential awkwardness, Jin hurries up and hides.
On the other hand, to prepare for the variety dating show, Ae Jung and Jenny go to the Oriental medicine clinic, and discover that the hospital chief is a participant in Couple Making Season 3. Jenny pushes Ae Jung to pretend that she’s at the hospital for some medical beautifying treatment. Peeking through the door slot, Ae Jung discovers that the hospital chief is none other than Pil Joo and she is shocked.
