Gosh, I’m seriously appreciate of how well crafted Start-Up is, the plot has hidden surprises in each episode and it always adds color and depth to the proceedings. Episode 9 didn’t reveal the truth of the Letters right off the bat, but let that build slowly so that the viewer is as anxious as Do San and as frustrated as Ji Pyeong. I love them so, such Good Boys, always trying to do the right thing but still flawed and human. Do San trying to win and keep Dal Mi’s heart was started by Ji Pyeong’s plan to never come clean about the Letters so I can’t fault him when he was given the green light multiple times to keep down that path. I wished he TOLD Dal Mi the truth himself rather than her finding out, and same with the end of the episode when Ji Pyeong basically outed himself by going to get Dal Mi’s latest letter. Do San needs to woo Dal Mi as himself and Ji Pyeong needs to face up to his budding feelings for her so he stops being frustrated. With that said, this episode’s march towards the end was incredibly paced and plotted, I felt for every character but still I wanted to truth to come out. It’s now time to see what the future holds minus love triangles, there is still a start-up to get off the ground!
