Okay, this is the first episode I “felt” emotionally connected to Hye Joon and Jung Ah’s sweeter than cotton candy healthy romance in Record of Youth. Yes they are so thoughtful towards each other but it had been so boring since the very beginning. But this episode I really see why Jung Ah has her own agency in life and why she could be so attractive to both Hye Joon and Hae Hyo. I think she would actually be quite compatible for Hae Hyo as well (his mother aside) but she and Hye Joon just felt like meant to be but in their own uneventful way lol. This episode gave their relationship stakes, shall she out herself to save Hye Joon’s besieged reputation? I say no, Manager Noona needs to be a lot more before using that trump card and honestly I cannot image how a preposterous false rumor about Hye Joon being Charlie Jung’s boy toy cannot be sued from here to Mars for slander and libel. Hye Joon needs to be more savvy and hopefully this will be the lesson he needs to survive in K-ent long term.
