I wasn't sure I would be posting here again but my love for the last episode and our JinSoo couple brought me back to say a few words.   I pretty much lost it at Jin Hyuk's expression when h

I think that I found their room  , they will definitely have to explain the balcony kiss if my guess is correct.    CSH’s room in first episode      She is back in the same

Enjoy reading everyone's thoughts... I will elaborate on why the ending is good for me...   1.  It did not end with some drone zoomed out kiss in the Cuban Garden with sweeping romantic musi

Regarding the last scene in ep 5... I’ve seen some translation as JH suggesting a “pre-relationship,” a “something relationship,” or a “fling.” 


Can someone fluent in Korean explain to me what is the nature of the relationship that he is suggesting? Like, is this type of arrangement supposed to be exclusive? (I’m guessing not exclusive, because then it isn’t that different from being bf/gf...). Or more like, a friends with skinship benefits and no commitment type of thing?


The translation as “fling” really changes the meaning of that scene for me somehow. Makes it seem as though they don’t intent for the relationship to last long anyway :/


That's mis-translated. "fling" makes it sound like something insincere, like just a physical relationship with someone who you don't love.


They said "some" which is a sort of slang in Korean which means "some-thing." As in, I feel something for you. We're more than friends, but not in an official relationship yet.


And we know he'll at least make it to "boyfriend" because that's the title of the show! :wub:




More thoughts about how direct and bold Jin-Hyeok is:


I love how clear he is about how he feels, and I love that he has game! I love how he talks her into "playing hooky" and eating dinner with her after she is hesitant. I love how open and honest he is about how he feels, and how that is what is working for him. It makes it impossible to assume that he is after the money and power that she has - which, on the surface, is what the gossips will assume.


But I also love that he is human. Although he is very brave and stepped up and spoke out for Soo-Hyeon, and keeps a straight face when he walks into work, when everyone is gossiping and pointing fingers at the cafeteria, he can't take it anymore and has to leave. He is human, but not superhuman.


(Just an aside - how freaking rude are these people? Geez, get a life.)

# KJH asks her out on a second date to the tea shop, she say she’s busy with some work. 

# LDC and KJM are discussing last night, KJM hopes it works out for his brother and CSH. He says KJH’s good looks got him lucky, LDC says CSH is really beautiful and KJM agreees. LDC says she was an actress when she walked in, how she looked extra pretty next to Secretary Jang. Lul

# KJM ends up choosing Secretary Jang’s profile on the dating app, says he has found LDC’s future wife. LDC doesn’t like her profile bio. KJM scoffs that the man cutting onions is turning down Sec jang’s profile. Slyly DMs her anyway 

# MOnster mom meets CSH, breaks her heart when she lets her know that her priority hasn’t changed.

# CSH is sad, KJH notices her mood and sends her a message “I told you that you would look prettier than the model advertising  the lipstick”

# She is at the department store picking out a cardigan for her dad and tie for KJH. Her ex husband is at the counter behind her and sees her, she walks out. He asks the store attendant what she purchased and whether it was for a young man. The attendant says the cardigan style was for an older man but the tie seemed like something a younger would wear.

# Driver Nam is encouraging CSH to meet with KJH, he gets a call from PR team leader. CSH is pacing restlessly in her house and she finds herself driving to the tea shop. She reached the shop and she’s embarrassed that she’s landed up without telling him. He sees her car, she says let’s go for a walk. 

# he puts her muffler around her because he’s worried she will catch a cold. She says she like his perfume on the muffler. They end up holding hands and have cute,silly smiles on their face. The scene ends with him putting their joined hands inside his coat pocket.:wub:

# she gives him the tie and he tells her it’s the first time receiving a tie in his life. She says it’s the first time for her too, she’s only bought ties for her dad in the past.

# KJH is unable to contact the celebrities they need for the hotel opening, he is informing Pr team leader. Ex husband walks in and everyone tenses up, KJH doesn’t know who ex husband is and is clueless why he wants to know the progress of the arrangements for the hotel opening. PR team politely tells ex husband she can manage the celebrity attendance, traitor spy grabs the file out of KJH’s hands and gives them to ex husband. Ex husband says he will help them if they’re unable to get the celebs within one day

# ex husband is sizing up KJH, glares at the tie. KJH asks pr team member the identity of the man. He is surprised when she tells him.
