Jae Hee and Yoo Jin fight. Eun Bi and Yoo Jin fight. Eun Bi and Jae Hee fight with Yoo Jin.

But all ends well, because if you have Eun Bi and Jae Hee versus Yoo Jin, they’re always going to win. Right!?

Song of the Day

*Not a new song, but a new interpretation certainly

Gu Hye Sun – Jae Hee’s song for “Chungdamdong Gumiho” [download]

Jae Hee and Yoo Jin don’t mince words. Yoo Jin wants Jae Hee on board, and apologizes for misjudging the quality of composers’ works without having understood or heard them. Jae Hee isn’t easily appeased. So Yoo Jin promises him he’ll follow any conditions Jae Hee has. Jae Hee rejects that too.

Poor Gu Jak – he had even gathered the cast to hold a prayer session pleading to God that Jae Hee won’t ruin this proposal for them.

Luckily Yoo Jin isn’t an idiot, and after a conversation with Gu Jak, he understands that Jae Hee’s condition would be to have Go Eun Bi as the lead, rather than Bae Kang Hee. Unfortunately that’s not something he can do easily since he works with Kang Hee.

Jae Hee meets with Eun Bi afterwards, and she finds out that Jae Hee rejected the offer because he wants Eun Bi in it. Though flattered, she’s also shocked that he gave up such an opportunity for an amateur like her.

They continue their lessons, this time with Bok Ja hanging around his house, ogling at all his fine housewares. She notices Jae Hee’s obvious affection for Eun Bi and teases her about the composer falling in love with her. Outside Jae Hee’s house, they bump into Yoo Jin. He congratulates Eun Bi on being able to accomplish everything and anything she wants for the sake of her dream: “You got what you wanted.” His harsh words are easily interpreted as a dig towards how she has Jae Hee wrapped around her tiny finger, and how she managed to make sure the lead role is hers.

Eun Bi doesn’t let him get away with it. “We didn’t have a great first impression, but I don’t think you know me well enough to make such statements,” she fires back. Yoo Jin gives her an arrogant smile: she worked closely with the composer, and lost an opportunity for her production team by insisting to be the lead, didn’t she? Jae Hee comes out of his home in time, preventing Eun Bi from literally jumping on Yoo Jin and clawing his face.

Inside Jae Hee’s home, Yoo Jin assures him that he can convince Kang Hee about the lead role switcheroo. That warms Jae Hee up considerably more towards Yoo Jin. Yoo Jin’s idea is to double cast the lead role with Kang Hee and Eun Bi. When Sang Won hears of the plan, he finds it incredulous: how would Kang Hee the Superstar ever agree to star alongside Eun Bi the Amateur?

Yoo Jin knows it’s all in the marketing: everyone knows about Kang Hee and Jae Hee’s relationship, and are interested in news of a possible reunion. If Kang Hee doesn’t accept this double casting role, people will think it’s because of Jae Hee, and not because of Eun Bi. She has to accept, or else the scandal surrounding their relationship will resurface and Sang Won would be affected.

A look into the past: Sang Won loved Kang Hee dearly, but she was still in love with Jae Hee back then. Even though she had accepted his proposal, after some thinking she returned the ring back to him. But Sang Won didn’t care – he knew he’d always have to share her with every male lead that she works with because she’s that passionate of an actress. He will still love her, no matter whom she loves more, and this marriage would also be advantageous for her.

So they got married.

Eun Bi goes on her milk deliveries again, and it turns out that the last house she visits, and always bows to, is Kang Hee and Sang Won’s house. Inside, Kang Hee accepts Yoo Jin’s idea of double casting: “I’ll show her what it’s really like to work with me. If she can withstand it and stand on the stage, who wouldn’t love her?”

Yoo Jin calls up Eun Bi to his office. On her way there, Jae Hee also calls her to see if they can meet for tea, but she says she’s going to need an hour so she can give “asshole” a piece of her mind. Jae Hee goes bug-eyed and races over.

In Yoo Jin’s office, she finds out about the double casting idea. It stuns her completely – to be standing onstage with her idol?! For Kang Hee to accept working with her?! Yoo Jin presumes that perhaps there’s a very personal reason for Jae Hee to want Eun Bi, and she denies any of that. However, she still has a problem with this whole idea of double casting – she finds it fishy.

Eun Bi wonders if Yoo Jin’s endgame is to have her reject this proposal so that someone else can take her place, or Kang Hee stars alone. Thankfully Jae Hee charges in on time. He wants to talk to Eun Bi first but she has her answer ready: she wants to be onstage too, but not like this. Not being offered point-blank like this.

She storms out of the building. Jae Hee drives up alongside her to see if she wants a ride, and she accepts… to go to an arcade. There she beats a punching bag game and gets all the bonus rounds. She then goes to a batting cage and hits every single baseball, much to Jae Hee’s amazement. During a coffee break, Jae Hee finds that Eun Bi isn’t like other girls, who would just punch lightly, or stand behind the fence and watch their boyfriends hit the ball. He praises her, and then sides with her on how much of an ass Yoo Jin is. So about the role…

Eun Bi smiles. She’s objective enough to know that she isn’t the best for the role if she’s to be alongside Kang Hee, and she thinks taking the role might hurt her future. Jae Hee wants it simple: Eun Bi sings his songs, and he watches her. She wonders if he’s interested in her as an actress or something more… but Jae Hee refuses to separate all that. He just wants to watch HER on the STAGE singing HIS songs.

Yoo Jin and Ra Kyung visit Gu Jak at his restaurant/bar for some dinner and chit-chat. Ra Kyung visibly enjoys herself there, listening to the group of A-cappella boys that bust out harmonies on random things while cooking. Afterwards, Ra Kyung drags Yoo Jin to a small karaoke place where they can just sing their hearts out and get recorded by the videos. Yoo Jin smiles this whole time, but he’s so stiff. He’s so sadly stiff…

Later on, Ra Kyung shares a meal with her oft-traveling father. He wonders when she’s going to marry Yoo Jin, and offers to visit the in-laws with her mother. But Ra Kyung wants to go pay her respects first. She drives over with a fruit basket alone, and finds Yoo Jin’s parents coming home from a walk.

The father recognizes her, but the mother freaks out. She hides behind the father and eyes Ra Kyung suspiciously. She starts screaming when Father invites Ra Kyung into the home, and scares Ra Kyung. Eun Bi’s grandmother comes rushing to help, and leads Ra Kyung to her home first so that Father can calm his wife down.

Ra Kyung had not realized that Yoo Jin’s mother had deteriorated to such a state; in fact, even Yoo Jin doesn’t know. Eun Bi’s grandmother tells her that it’s due to dementia or Alzheimer’s, but her sickness hasn’t been so obvious until today. Once Father has calmed the mother down, he explains that once she had been diagnosed, they moved away so that Yoo Jin would never have to see his mother like this, and the family wouldn’t force the parents apart.

He makes her swear not to tell Yoo Jin just yet.

Eun Bi meets with Yoo Jin the following day at the same breakfast cafe where she went with Jae Hee. It takes her a while to speak up, but finally she has an answer for Yoo Jin. She wants to audition for the role, and if she’s good enough, she is willing to be double casted for “Chungdamdong Gumiho.”

Yoo Jin takes it a step further – he will make it an open audition for anyone, and will film the process.

By the time Eun Bi visits Jae Hee, he’s already heard about her answer. She smiles widely: “When you’ve caused trouble, you have to smile even wider so that you get in less trouble!” Ha! So true… Eun Bi doesn’t want to go inside Jae Hee’s home anymore. From this moment until the audition, she will no longer see him or speak to him, especially because he’s a judge for the auditions. It’s her way of making sure she will never be given preferential treatment.

Jae Hee promises that he’ll be fair in judging – fair to his heart that is. And his heart belongs to Eun Bi. (Oh my God I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence in episode 4!) She gets all frustrated, but it only endears her to Jae Hee even more. He argues that it’s not about who’s technically better, but whose voice suits best to the song. Hence, he prefers Eun Bi. And he kisses her on the head.

Yoo Jin works with Ra Kyung on the marketing plan for the audition process, and she mentions calling his parents. He immediately clams up and tries to redirect the conversation to the audition. He doesn’t want to hear anything about visiting his parents, and for once, he’s actually quite scary when he shoots Ra Kyung down.

Sang Mi interrupts Gu Jak while he’s working on his script, and she gets incredibly close to him. As in, seductively close. As in – she is willing to sleep with him so that he’ll help her get the part alongside Bae Kang Hee. Though it’s a very tempting prospect for the disheveled Gu Jak, he thwacks her head – is she being an idiot? Does she really think she’s worthy of the role? She should be helping Eun Bi instead of trying to compete with her.

Eun Bi happens upon this conversation when she visits his restaurant and she despondently walks away – see, this is what happens when you open a role you could have had to an audition. As she walks out, the A-cappella group asks her to sing Jae Hee’s song to them one more time. They loved it, and they know what it’s like to fail in auditions. Maybe they could help her out?

Eun Bi starts out singing, and her mind falls back into one of her past training sessions with Jae Hee. He had told her to make her voice stronger – she needs to attack the judges with a strong note to leave a good impression. Be confident, be clear, and be loud. With that in mind, she starts over again.

This time, her voice slowly finds her strength. The boys join in and support her voice… and Sang Mi and Gu Jak watch her from the balcony above. Gu Jak: “Do you still want to do the audition?” Sang Mi: “…I was more interested in the supporting role anyways.”

It’s time for the audition, and many girls show up, wanting the role for various reasons: to work with Jae Hee, to make it big, to go to New York. The audition consists of everyone dancing a choreographed piece and then singing another song solo. The judges then cull down the list to the top 4 participants, including Eun Bi and a more well-known actress Choo Jung Won. The judges are surprised to see her there, because if Jung Won is participating, how could Eun Bi possibly beat her?

Jae Hee swoops in with his easy confidence and says they should audition the final round in reverse order. If Eun Bi goes first and is too good, then everyone else won’t be able to do well. Sheesh – way to show your favoritism.

One by one, each girl goes onstage and Jae Hee rejects them; one of the reasons is because one girl sings “too prettily.” Yoo Jin even raises his eyebrows at Jae Hee’s judgments. Jung Won takes the stage, and she’s like Kang Hee-Lite, with her strong voice and light trills at the end of each note. Kang Hee triumphantly smiles when she sees Jae Hee lean forward in interest.

Jae Hee claps at the end of her performance, which Sang Won frowns upon. Judges shouldn’t show favoritism like that. Jae Hee: “But she’s good! It’s not easy being good. She deserves it. *Claps*”

Eun Bi takes the stage, and Jae Hee settles into his seat, this time bringing his knees up like a child and holding his score sheet even closer to his chest.

Eun Bi starts, and the judges all raise their eyebrows in some way; Sang Won notes aloud that she has gotten better. Jae Hee just watches her lovingly, and Kang Hee is unsettled at the sight of that. It’s not the same song that Eun Bi had sung in the last episode – this time, she hits the higher notes a little more cleanly, a little more strongly.

And then… right at the top of the song, right when the character Do Hwa is about to profess her love… Eun Bi pauses. And pauses. And pauses.

And she has every single person in the room’s damn attention. Even the pianist.

Eun Bi restarts. Instead of continuing that high note for a strong finish, she goes back to an almost whisper-like tone. And she finishes her song simply, without theatrics, without airs. Jae Hee’s grinning like MAD, like a little schoolboy. She bows at the end of her song and turns to leave, but Kang Hee stops her.

“Why did you pause?” she asks.

Eun Bi: It didn’t have any music symbols. I just did what I wanted.

Kang Hee: So I’m asking why did you want that?

Eun Bi: The gumiho that endured and didn’t fall in love for 999 years had only one year to go, and fell in love in this scene. I don’t think she could have made her confession so easily. 999 years – it’s a very long time to live alone. Though she loves him, I don’t think it will be easy for her to tell him. I didn’t think that I could sing it with one breath.

Good answer Eun Bi – it’s softened everyone’s hearts, shut Kang Hee up, and got Jae Hee to giggle behind his score sheet. Yoo Jin wonders if that interpretation is hers, or Jae Hee’s, but Eun Bi assures she never spoke to Jae Hee about it. True right she didn’t – she hadn’t seen him or spoken to him ever since the audition was announced!

Time for deliberations, and everyone counts up the scores. Jung Won and Eun Bi are tied (of course), and all that’s left is to tabulate Kang Hee’s scores (of course). She moodily stares out a window, thinking as she sips her coffee.

She finally turns to the judges, her score sheet in hand – and she rips it in half. !!!!!!!!!!!

“If they’re tied,” she muses. “My choice is…”

END SCENE.

Comments:

OMFG. GAHHHH! WHAT THE FRAK!?!?!

I hate you episode 4! I  hate you so much I love you! I hate you! I love you! I hate you!! I love you!!!!

I did NOT watch the preview for episode 5, so if anyone DARES spill ANY DETAIL, I will personally maim you. Just assume that I have not watched an episode until a recap goes up – are we all clear?!?

Now with my anger and passion out of the way… wow. I thought I was actually going to be bored in this episode. I mean, episode 3 didn’t have a cliffhanger like THIS ONE, so I didn’t really know what to expect of episode 4. What I enjoy is that there’s a bit of a formula going on here for the drama – the beginning is all character and plot development, and then you end with an audition or performance. I’m OK with that setup – in fact, I hope it continues being that setup in some way so that I can continue to enjoy the wonderful singing and music. This episode had no new songs, but I love that they gave it a spin with Eun Bi’s new interpretation of the song. Once again, Eun Bi’s singing has improved, and I love that Gu Hye Sun is showing increasing increments in Eun Bi’s talents, because it shows more realistic growth than say, all of a sudden being spectacular.

I’m also glad that Eun Bi grew a spine and really let Yoo Jin have it. At least she’s living up to her spunky appearance and speaking her mind, rather than being awkward like in episode 3. As for Yoo Jin, while he is an ass, I can no longer wrap my head around him being a cold manipulative jerk. I think seeing him be so affected by Eun Bi’s simple performance makes me think twice about his character, even though he consistently says harsh things with little emotion. I already enjoy every single time he smiles at Ra Kyung – but please man, not every conversation must be a business transaction. I hope he cracks in this series, and becomes more of a softie – especially when he finds out about his mother in the future.

    …but I love sharing spoilers…lol. Great episode

  2. bluemountain

    Thank you for the recap. I really enjoy the Musical: the performance of all actors,the music and the messages delivered in each episode. I have watched the episodes 1 -4 three times. Love it!!!!

  3. Misao

    Skipped most parts of this episode. But eun bi’s audition saved this episode for me. Loved jae hee in that scene! Such a kid! More eun bi jae hee interactions please! And more jealous kang hee. :)

  4. tomo

    Thanks for the recap! I hesitantly picked up this drama despite my annoyance for Gu Hye Sun the actress, and though I had to grit my teeth to endure the abundant mouth pursing that GHS loves to do, which was prevalent in episodes 1 and 2, I’m so glad I stuck with it!

    After I dropped Protect the Boss midway, I didn’t think I would find a viable substitute for the awesomeness of PTB’s earlier episodes, but found it in The Musical. So far, it’s been strong and fun and cute throughout.

    I was able to marathon the first 4 episodes because I started it late, but now it’s tough waiting a full week for only one new episode.. ahhh.

    • 4.1 Hypatia

      I hear you… Leaving every other imaginable factor aside, GHS’s forced cute-siness was what made BOF even more annoying (I know I am picking enemies here but I just wanted it out there). I see glimpses of that here too with the excessive ruffling-of-hair… I think she could easily tone that down a notch or two and still give away the desired effect. However overall I think this is a well laid-out plot… I am impressed with the character developments so far- we see glimpses of how each character came to be and what stake they have in the production of the musical. So I have great hopes about what it culminates to… I hope the pace is maintained and there is new development each episode focussed around the central plot of the drama!

  5. JIW_sobangnim

    This is a wonderful drama! THE BGM is LOVE! And I the ending of episode 4 didnt keep me guessing much due to the previews :) An aspiring musical actress myself, I really feel in tune to this show :)

    • 5.1 JIW_sobangnim

      Just pondering on the notion of lovey dovey feelings between YooJin and EunBi? :( Cuz their parents/grandparents are in the same vicinity of each other…..? Yikes cant help but wait for the next one! :) Love MOE MOE :)

  6. yumi

    Watching Jae-Hee watch Eun Bi during the audition made me all warm and gooey.

    Daniel Choi has the most sweet, open, unguarded, “I-don’t care if you know that person makes me happy face” ever.

    Yum!

  7. sleepysnail

    sort of off topic, but has anyone else noticed that yoo-jin sort of looks like bela lugosi….?

    • 7.1 hugo

      I’m sure that Bela would appreciate the compliment. It generally seems to me that pretty nearly all of these snarky, business is my bloodlust characters are in some way channeling The Count… ;)

    • 7.2 Cynthia

      More like Count Chocula!
      :)

    • 7.3 Alvina

      It’s those haunting eyes. They’re like reflecting lights… or pools of darkness. haha.

      imo, biased, but they’re capturing.

  8. Hyesundaebak

    Thanks for the recaps….like it sooooooooooooooo much much….seriously….

  9. Alvina

    Honestly, I wonder about Jae Hee’s character.
    I have a friend that goes to an art school and one of her professors takes to having “muses”. They aren’t love interests but he expresses such romance for them as a piece of art that, my friend says, his wife (another professor at the school) gets jealous haha.

    I wonder if she’s simply Jae Hee’s muse, as an artist.
    Perhaps k-dramas, or this k-drama, wont dive into the (dark) implications of that.

    On the other hand, Park Ki-woong keeps on impressing me. His character clearly shows his love for music and money making, he has a dark character while also being vulnerable.

    I LOVE when my drama characters aren’t so clean cut. It makes it hard to put them in a box but it makes for great discussions and enthusiastic viewing experience. :D

    • 9.1 Birdie

      Interesting thoughts!

  10. 10 Birdie

    Such an enjoyable well written drama. Good acting and great music.Each episode gets better. 1 episode per week is too long to wait…….

    Initially I did wonder if GHS’s sweet angelic singing voice is suitable for musicals as usually the singing tends to be powerful,but my concerns are laid to rest . As the drama progresses,I realise her singing suit the plot and the storyline. That is why she was approached to star in it. Her singing slowly improves and it is more about hard work ,determination and passion ,being unique and suitable for a certain role.

    Thanks for the recaps,Kaedejun. Enjoyed reading them.

  11. 11 cv

    Awsome! thanks for recap! This drama is getting good.

  12. 12 hugo

    Goo Hye Sun has always impressed me as an actress who can slowly, but steadily transform her characters from someone that you can actually believe exists as she carefully evolves from simple to more complex. Just supressing her obvious feminine charm and attractiveness is a work of clever deception. She can make people believe that she’s sort of a “plain Jane” even when we all know that the prettiest girl in the room is in fact she. :0

  13. 13 weissman

    so far this series has me enthralled, its amamzing

  14. 14 River

    The cliffhanger sucked. You totally know that Eun Bi’s going to get the part. She’s the freaking main character. The Musical is really good, so far, though, enough for me to stay tuned. The actress playing Eun Bi is really good, but I wish she’d stop touching her hair. I thought it was cute at first, but done too much, it’s annoying.

  15. 15 aurohm

    I love Jae Hee/Daniel Choi. <3 <3 <3
    I hate Kang Hee/evil witch.

  16. 16 Marg

    “Once again, Eun Bi’s singing has improved, and I love that Gu Hye Sun is showing increasing increments in Eun Bi’s talents, because it shows more realistic growth than say, all of a sudden being spectacular.”

    I totally agree with you on that point. And I have to say that I’m liking this drama more & more with each new episode (despite my initial hesitance in giving the drama a try).

    I’m really looking forward to next week’s episode.

  17. 17 WM

    I had no idea what to expect when I started watching. I am so impressed! It’s such a gentle show. There’s real progression here, with characters who feel fully rounded before you even know everything about them. I love that the lead characters (especially the male lead) are totally honest; I hope that trend continues. And the flashbacks are done in such a way that I’m not sighing and thinking “filler”. The writing and acting has totally invested me in this show.

  18. 18 isabelle

    i love this show, why do they do it only once a week, i think that makes it more craving for us and relaxing for them to work.

    love love love Jae Hee and Eun Bi

  19. 19 craziluver

    i have to say, Go Hye Sun’s skin is very smooth and clear and Choi Daniel and Park Ki Woong are both cutie pie when they smile.

  20. 20 Noelle

    Dang this was good. Can’t wait for the next ep! Daniel Choi was impossibly cute in this episode with his boyish smiles and lovey dovey eyes. Oh and I love how hes up front about everything! God I never thought that could be so attractive.

  21. 21 Christy

    Thanks for the recap. I really love drama!

  22. 22 sleeplessinwgtn

    Thanks, kaedejun, for the wonderful recap. I agree with your observations of character development.

    I think I share the same genre of k-dramas you like. You recappped Prosecutor Princess, didn’t you? And I loved that drama, too.

    I also agree with the comments on the musical being suited to a certain singing style. It does not have to be dramatic all the time. A subdued innocent style would suit. too, depending on the music and the plot.

  23. 23 ais

    Gu hye-sun is such a sweetheart. I love her potrayal of Eun-bi. Her chemistry with Daniel Choi makes me giddy like crazy :) Lovin’ this drama more and more. How I wish they air 2 episodes per week!

  24. 24 kdramalover

    I am suspicious of Jae Hee’s feelings toward Eun Bi, it is not romantically….I hope this drama progresses in a way where his true feelings is touched on. It seems to me his inspiration is EB’s voice just like how he was with KH. I wonder if he would still have any interest in her if she just a regular medical student.

    • 24.1 Alvina

      *high five*
      I agree. I hope they touch on that.

      What impressed me when watching this was the (most) of the characters are completely pro, especially the president (the husband) and Yoo Jin.
      They dont let their personal feelings affect their musical decisions. Very admirable for drama characters.

      This is at odds with Kang-Hee and Jae-Hee’s characters who are seemingly ruled by their passion for the musicals and the people around them. Though they’re experts, they make a lot of their decisions based on ~feelings~…

      It’s… fun to watch haha.

      Though, I am also skeptical. :/

  25. 25 isabelle

    its weekend and the musical is here againnnn,yaaaayyyyyy

  26. 26 laya

    Oooooooooooooh. Nice!!!!!

    Thanks for the recap, KDJ! I’m looking forward to the next episode already!

  27. 27 sarang

    I’ve seen the preview, that’s all I’m going to say. Absolutely love the fact that they didn’t make Eun Bi a natural born singer. It makes it more interesting to see the growth and development. Sometimes you can thrive on passion even if your talent falls a little flat. Also Jae Hee is too fricken adorable.

  28. 28 tb

    Who else in here ship for Yoo Jin and Eun Bi? Or just me? Is my ship sinking or what?

    • 28.1 fmv

      Oh noooo. It is Jae Hee al the way. lol.

    • 28.2 darlainsummer

      Me! I love it that Eun-bi manages to strike Yoo-jin’s chord everytime they meet. :)

    • 28.3 kdramalover

      it’s not sinking….but I am kinda guilty wanting their ship to sail because of the fiance….

      • 28.3.1 Alvina

        ^this. If only she were out of the way, I’d be happy to ship them haha. So then I could be FULLY invested in the EunBi-JaeYi-YooJin thing…

        But, she’s too sweet and I, right now, just want him to love her like she loves him :(

  29. 29 fmv

    Thanks for the recap Kaedejun. I am so glad you decided to recap this drama.

    I love this drama and every time the episode ends I ask myself, why couldn’t this production team secure a better time slot (like a 2 day airing time) in the beginning? Once a day per week is torture…. that’s how much I love this drama so far.

    Anyway, since you have given us a fair warning, I am not gonna share any details regarding episode 5. But hurry my friend, others might not be able to hold it…

  30. 30 lucertola

    This drama is really well done! Thanks for recapping ^_^

    • 30.1 drmjs

      I agree with you. From drama structure, casting and execution…I would say this drama is seamless. Kaedejun…I really appreciate your recaps.

  31. 31 Ellie Chong

    Love it, like it, enthralled by it, enterrtained by it and gladly impressed. Can’t wait for the next episode and how the whole drama unfolds!!! :)

  32. 32 camille

    Agree on the beauty of character development! Love the fact that eun-bi is not automatically the best just because she’s the lead. Its nice to see how she works hard to be the best eventually.. And I just have to say that Daniel Choi is such a cutie and Goo Hye-Sun is totally beautiful! To die for flawless skin!

  33. 33 Intyce

    If you’re freaking out over the cliffhanger in Ep. 4, I think you’ll freak out even more over Ep.5! Dayum you CLIFFHANGERS!! >_<

  34. 34 Celexa

    I started watching this musical yesterday… and now I’m impatiently waiting for episode 5 :(

    I hate watching Kdramas “live”!!!

    But I sure do enjoy being part of the anticipation with everyone here! :)

  35. 35 Lilian

    When was the last time I watched a drama where I couldn’t pin point the pairings right at episode 1?

    Kinda reminds me of Honey and Clover, where everyone seems so compatible with each other, but everyone ends up with the least expected person.

    Jae Hee only seems interested in Eun Bi because she reminds him of perhaps himself and Kang Hee when they still purely enjoyed music. She seems more like a muse he’s having.

    Whereas, the chemistry between him and Kang Hee is top notch. Still can’t beat the heat even if it was a past relationship. It just makes Eun Bi seem so childish. lol. And she is to some extent.

    Regarding Yoo Jin and Eun Bi, theres possibility there in the generic kdrama case where the sunshine girl unfreezes the frozen heart of the cold business man.

    However, Ra Kyung is such a likable character. It would actually kinda break my heart if Yoo Jin fell in love with someone else.

    Same thing with Sang Won and Kang Hee. Outside of the business circle, he’s a pretty likable guy.

  36. 36 Anime1234

    Eun Bi with either love prospect is believable. I could see how Ra Kyung might wind up backing out because of the illness of Yoo Jin’s mother. Either she will be too scared or her father will force her to back out when he finds out. Whereas Eun Bi is a doctoral student and could handle it. Even if that doesn’t happen, Eun Bi might be able to help them. She seems really smart in the medical field – it is only her love for musicals that is making her enter that world instead.

    On another note, I think that Kang Hee originally wrote down the other singer and changed her mind when it came up as a tie. She wants to make Eun Bi back out herself.

  37. 37 Lady Seoul

    Awesone indeed. Addicted for reals. Can’t wait for episode 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which most likely will be subbed next week WED. T_T

  38. 38 Hipployta

    No spoilers here since episode 5 was just creepy as hell…but episode 6 looks to be EPIC

    Ok so please can someone tell me what was that “creep” cover they were playing when Eun Bi met Yoo Jin? Please~
    I loved it, but I couldn’t find any. It’s like a soft jazz version? I don’t know X°D

    Great episode by the way. Oh I love this drama. It’s just so well made… Is it the fact that they actually had TIME to redo scenes, to think about what was happening, and to generally do a good job?! :D

    The relationship between Eun Bi and Jae Hee kinda reminds me of the relationship between Han Sung and Eun Chan from Coffee Prince. She’s innocent and young, and he’s older and with a complicated past relationship.
