She announces that she and Tae Joon are dating. She looks at the camera and say messages to Tae Joon. All the students look at Tae Joon who is seriously shocked.

Point of View

You know there’s a saying: Keep calm and carry on. I’m sure that this is absolutely not going to happen. There’s no way that Tae Joon and Hanna are going on a date.

Even though, Woo Bin is just the cameo for this drama but he has more appearances in this episode to showcase his acting abilities. If I was Jae Hee, I will feel so touched when Johnny shows me all the portraits of me confess that he wants us to be together and forever. It’s a good thing Johnny let Jae Hee think about it. Johnny is confident that he’ll win her heart which makes Tae Joon pretty angry. However, I love it when Tae Joon gets jealous because it’s obvious that he has feelings for Jae Hee. I’m keeping my fingers crossed to make the plot more interesting: Jae Hee accepts Johnny, which means Jung Hoon will be staying longer, and it’s the love complications between Tae Joon and Jae Hee since Hanna announced that they’re dating. Why do I get the feeling there’s going to be lots of drama in this series?

I start to like Jae Hee as she starts to deal with her feelings over Tae Joon even though she insists that she admires Tae Joon as his idol who encourages her to stay strong. She still has Tae Joon’s encouraging quote to keep herself going forward. One problem though. There is some confusion about Tae Joon’s and Jae Hee’s feelings about each other besides the fact that Jae Hee wants to see him jump again. Let’s just put that aside and see how this love rollercoaster ride goes.

Hanna, I just want to come up to you and slap your face. Yes, I seriously mean it. She thinks that her own little world has tumbled down because she finds out that Jae Hee is a girl and Tae Joon knew about it from the very beginning which breaks her heart. So, she decides that no one else can take her oppa away by declaring a fake relationship with Tae Joon. That’s just too cruel. When I hear her announcement, I was in shocked, want to tell her off, and punch her in the face.

I feel sorry for Eun Gyul who didn’t make it to the national team which breaks his heart that not only it stops him to be a soccer player sensation but also he will not be able to confess his love to Jae Hee. It’s not the end of the world for him. When there’s a will, there’s a way. Look at him. He’s all smiley and cheerful on whatever he does even when he tries to impress Jae Hee.
