Jae Hee is surprised to see the previous Miss Genie photos as she couldn’t believe that their dorm leaders are dressed as pretty ladies. Eun Gyul changes the topic about dating Da Hae. He asks about Tae Joon and he heard that he had lost against Hyun Jae. This means Tae Joon is out of the athletic team. Jae Hee worries and wonders if there is any way that she could help him.

Tae Joon waits for Jae Hee in the room while doing push ups. He wonders what is taking Jae Hee so long and questions himself why he worries about her. He goes to find her until he meets her in the hallway. Jae Hee asks where he’s going at the late night and he awkwardly and cutely points at the random direction. Jae Hee leaves first and turns to him. She smiles and tells him that Tae Joon is the coolest when he’s out in the tracks. He smiles back and replies that he hasn’t yet.

Seung Ri is busy scribbling on a picture of Jae Hee. He adds on the long hair and is satisfied with it. He smiles as he has found her. At the soccer field, Eun Gyul is concerned about Da Hae’s confession and Jae Hee’s support for him. He accidentally kicks a ball straight to his coach’s head.

Tae Joon does pullups in the room and Jae Hee is impressed with his exercise. She volunteers to help and she doesn’t hear his answer. She sticks her head out to hear him better but they are closer to each other when Tae Joon pulls himself up. She knocks her head on the railing and he falls into a beanie.

He bumps into Seung Ri in the hallway and thanks him for helping him to rejoin the team. However, Seung Ri tells him that he should thanks Jae Hee. Each participant including Jong Min showcases their talent.

Seung Ri drops by to give Jae Hee the outfit for the contest. Then, she gives her lots of bread. Jae Hee asks if it’s for her to eat but Seung Ri says that these are for her to put in. Tae Joon thinks about entering the dress room but he decides not to. He walks past a mysterious student but continues to walk away.

Jae Hee is busy changing but the baddie takes her clothes away while she isn’t looking. When Seung Ri announces her name, she doesn’t show up. Jae Hee panics in the dressing room and locks the door. Seung Ri runs to find the key. The baddie runs along the hallway until he is tripped by Tae Joon who comes out from the shadows. The baddie is the guy whom Jae Hee pulled his pants previously. The baddie is still angry with that incident. Tae Joon grabs him and pushes him against the wall. He calmly tells him to be careful. The baddie asks what Tae Joon’s relation to Jae Hee is and he replies that she is his roommate.

Doctor Jang is thinking whether she is letting everyone know that she’s a girl. Eun Gyul tries to come to his senses as he says that Jae Hee is a boy. He faints when she gives him a wink.

Hanna visits after the festival and bumps into Eun Gyul. He tells her to leave before she is caught by security but she doesn’t care. She boasts that she’ll call the cops on the pervert who jumped in her bath which makes Eun Gyul fumes.

Jae Hee enters the gymnasium while Tae Joon continues to successfully jump over the bar. She thanks him because she can recognize his hand. He asks her whether she won. She didn’t win and asks if she’s pretty. Tae Joon gives a small shake of his head before he take the confetti off from her hair. He tells her that she’s not ugly. He adds that he needs to get back to practice. Jae Hee is going to leave but she trips on the pole and the box flies out of her hands. Eun Gyul and Hanna looks while Jae Hee falls on top of Tae Joon. Confetti is flying around them.

Point of View

Thank goodness for having the dorm leaders bonding time and comical moments for Eun Gyul love confusion. It’s so lovely to see them work together to follow with the school tradition. I’m glad that they organized the yearly school event where it’s open to the public to have some fun including the Miss Genie competition. I
love that so much that I laughed especially when boys are dressed in girls’ clothing.

Rather than focus on just Tae Joon and Jae Hee (even though I flipped when I see Jae Hee falls on top of Tae Joon while confetti flying around them), I decided to say about a few characters in this episode. Like Tae Joon, Hyun Jae is determined to be a well-known high jumper. Also, it’s interesting to see some rivalry between the both of them. Both of them really work hard to achieve their goals and I’m sure they didn’t care much about popularity within the celebrity and sports world I’m not saying that Hyun Jae is a totally bad person. He does care about his classmates and friends including Eun Gyul. On the outside, he can be rude but he has a caring heart.

It’s so sweet when Eun Gyul and Da Hae are together even though I enjoyed his bitter conversations with Hanna. It’s nice of him to have adorable moments with Da Hae. But, I’m sure Eun Gyul is still around in circles when it comes to love which is going to come really soon. Yes, the spices on the dish.

I am really impressed with Min Ho who portrayed Tae Joon in this drama. At first, he shows a cold character and then he starts to reveal the cute, sweet, and adorable side which I truly loved. Love him a lot and supporting till the very end. Fighting!
