The Best Hit: Episodes 9-10

Living in the present proves to be difficult when Hyun-jae learns that his legacy isn’t one most people want to remember. Learning the truth will require digging into the past and getting some help from those he left emotionally scarred. But keeping a star out of the spotlight won’t be easy, especially when the stage is where he shines brightest.

 
EPISODE 9 RECAP

Kwang-jae is up in arms when he returns from the bathroom in time to see Bo-hee being carried away on a man’s back. He flags down the abductor and is floored to see Hyun-jae looking back at him.

They relocate to the park, where Hyun-jae insists that it’s truly him. Noting that his old manager Kwang-jae hasn’t gone bald like he once feared, Hyun-jae understands that seeing him in the flesh after twenty-plus years would leave Kwang-jae in disbelief.

But Hyun-jae is proud to say that he’s back and opens his arms wide for a big hug. Kwang-jae responds by punching him square in the face. HA.

They continue talking at a cafe, where Hyun-jae is sporting a fantastic black eye. Kwang-jae demands concrete proof that he’s looking at the same Hyun-jae he once knew, believing that knowing Hyun-jae’s birth name isn’t enough.

Hyun-jae is hurt that Kwang-jae doesn’t readily accept that it’s him, but Kwang-jae requires more validation. He bends down to check Hyun-jae’s left ankle because the real Hyun-jae would have a star-shaped burn scar there.

Kwang-jae is dumbfounded when he sees the same scar, and Hyun-jae takes his hand and reiterates that he’s the same Hyun-jae. Kwang-jae remembers when he stopped Bo-hee from running away shortly after Hyun-jae’s disappearance in 1994.

Kwang-jae told her that she did nothing to warrant hiding from the world—all she did was have feelings for a man. He was prepared to face the media storm surrounding Hyun-jae’s disappearance and believed that Bo-hee could keep being a public figure if she did as he asked.

“Going forward, I’ll take care of you,” Kwang-jae declared. He told her to hide behind him and promised to fight anyone who would want to criticize her. Asked why he’d bother, he hesitated and then replied, “Because I’m Yoo Hyun-jae’s manager. His business is my business. If there’s something he needs to take responsibility for, I’ll take on all of that responsibility. I’ll take Hyun-jae’s place.”

Back in the present, Hyun-jae opens up his arms at an attempt for another hug. He gets another punch, leaving him with two black eyes. HA.

Next, they end up outside a convenience store where Kwang-jae repeats Hyun-jae’s illogical tale of traveling into the future via wormhole. He thinks it would be far more believable if Hyun-jae reappeared after spending years in isolation.

It then occurs to Kwang-jae that Grandpa’s claims about seeing Hyun-jae were true and that he was in their midst for days. Hyun-jae corrects him—he’s been bunking with Ji-hoon in the rooftop apartment, but promises that Ji-hoon doesn’t know who he is.

But because Hyun-jae believes that Ji-hoon is Kwang-jae and Bo-hee’s son, he wonders when the two of them became an item. Kwang-jae revs up for another punch, but this time, Hyun-jae stops his fist, saying that he won’t get punched a third time. So Kwang-jae headbutts him instead. AHAHAHAHA.

Hyun-jae, who now has two black eyes and a double nosebleed, whines all the way back home while Kwang-jae carries Bo-hee on his back. While he can fathom why CEO Lee would be upset with him for leaving him in debt, he doesn’t get why Kwang-jae is still upset with him.

Even though Kwang-jae doesn’t know exactly how Hyun-jae showed up again, he does have one last thing to say: “Get lost. Stop shaking up people who are happily living their own lives and quietly go back to where you came from. Got that?!”

He heads inside, inadvertently slamming the door in Hyun-jae’s face. Alone, Hyun-jae hollers, “How am I supposed to do that when I don’t even know how I got here?!”

Woo-seung comes out of her room when the front door opens, thinking that it’s Hyun-jae. But it’s Ji-hoon, who denies that he was worried about her. She wonders if he’s late because he’s secretly dating someone, and he defensively asks if he’s not allowed to date.

But before she can get a definitive answer, Hyun-jae returns with Woo-seung’s backpack. He isn’t in the mood to explain his bruised face and nonchalantly notes that Ji-hoon came home late too. Ji-hoon’s irritation makes Hyun-jae wonder why both father and son are mad at him tonight.

Our family downstairs waits expectantly for breakfast the following morning. They grimace at being given fish head soup, but Kwang-jae is the only one who laps it up. Mal-sook (who notably calls Bo-hee “ajumma”) can’t bear to eat something that’s staring back at her, and Grandpa whips up some fried eggs for himself and the kids.

Kwang-jae sticks to his guns that the soup was delicious when Bo-hee delivers him coffee at the bakery. She delicately brings up how she had the oddest dream last night about Hyun-jae saying that he traveled forward in time to their present.

She agrees when Kwang-jae says it must’ve been a dream, though a part of her felt like Hyun-jae had returned. We cut to Hyun-jae’s face bathed in the morning sun, and as his face comes into focus… he stuffs dried ramyun into his mouth. LOL.

He’s actually in the studio upstairs, wondering why everyone is dressed to go out on the weekend. Once outside, Ji-hoon rebuffs Woo-seung when she asks if he’ll come home late tonight too.

Upstairs, Hyun-jae doodles ideas of what to do with his remaining money in his music notebook. He figures he can buy some clothes (illustrated by a shirt and pants) and thinks of getting his own place (a house) before crossing out that idea with a big “X.” I can’t wait for Young-jae’s freakout when he sees these drawings.

Hyun-jae starts panicking when he hears Kwang-jae outside, but then he remembers that Kwang-jae knows that he’s here. Kwang-jae finds it upsetting to see Hyun-jae speaking so casually with him when he hasn’t aged a day.

Hyun-jae (who’s been picking at his toes, ew) points out that Ji-hoon doesn’t take after Kwang-jae at all, so Kwang-jae changes the subject and suggests that Hyun-jae return to the past. Cut to: Hyun-jae on the edge of the staircase with a plastic sled, wearing a helmet and the same outfit he wore when he first arrived in 2017.

He chickens out repeatedly, dreading falling down the stairs again, but Kwang-jae insists that Hyun-jae going back to the ’90s is best for everyone. Hyun-jae pops up, trying to come up with reasons to stall the inevitable, but ultimately straps himself in for a bumpy ride.

Hyun-jae instructs Kwang-jae to push him on the count of three, but just before Kwang-jae gets to “three,” he stops to make sure that he’s packed the smartphone. Kwang-jae starts the count again, and despite Hyun-jae’s cries that this seems dangerous, he skips ahead to “Three!” and pushes Hyun-jae down the stairs.

Kwang-jae runs downstairs to check, when he sees nothing but the sled, helmet, and goggles, he lets out a victorious cheer: “It worked!” Hyun-jae’s voice responds, “It failed,” and then we see him crawl out from underneath the van and whine that he nearly died.

He balks when Kwang-jae says they should try again. But Kwang-jae drags him back up and they do it again and again and again for hours on end. The torture finally stops when a truck runs over the plastic sled and breaks it into tiny shards, and so they opt to grab a beer.

Kwang-jae wonders why that method didn’t work, but Hyun-jae says there’s no point to him returning to the past when he’ll disappear a year later anyway. He plans on finding out who tried to get rid of him and why, and then leans in when Kwang-jae says he has an inkling as to who that might be.

He sighs when Kwang-jae says, “It’s you,” given Hyun-jae’s track record for going off the grid whenever he didn’t want to face something. Kwang-jae names several instances off the top of his head, and adds that he wasn’t at all surprised when Hyun-jae disappeared in 1994 because that’s just what he always did.

Kwang-jae allows Hyun-jae to stay in the rooftop apartment temporarily and warns him against appearing before anyone else in the family, particularly Bo-hee. Hyun-jae hangs his head, and then cries that he thinks his phone cracked from falling down the stairs so much today.

Woo-seung spots a guy in a hoodie and a mask in the street, and thinking that it’s Ji-hoon, she grabs him in a headlock and demands to know why he’s been so short with her. Behind her, Ji-hoon asks, “What are you doing?” Awkward.

It’s MJ who angrily pops up, and Woo-seung apologizes profusely before running away with Ji-hoon. He picks up the notepad that Woo-seung dropped and flips through the pages in his van. Seeing that her name is Choi Woo-seung (meaning “first place”), he cracks up at the thought of her having a sibling named “Joon Woo-seung [second place].”

At home, Hyun-jae reads up on how MJ belongs to Young-jae’s agency and wonders if his former duo partner had something to do with stealing his song “Come Back Again.” When Woo-seung pops in to remind him of exactly how much he owes her when they visit the bank tomorrow, Hyun-jae mocks her behind her back.

But when they get to the bank, he’s told that the bank that issued these banker’s checks went bankrupt during the 1997 Asian financial crisis (IMF). Naturally Hyun-jae has no idea what that is and wonders, “I am… F?”

Woo-seung can’t believe that Hyun-jae has never heard of IMF and bragged about having worthless money. He cries over the meaningless pieces of paper, and she asks how he expects to pay her back now, showing him the video he recorded on her phone.

He vows to get her money back somehow, asking how she can be so distrustful of people. But Woo-seung says it’s money she can’t trust, not people, and then we see her recording a new video of him reading aloud a promise to pay her back every single cent he owes her, or he’ll act as her slave for the rest of his life.

She grabs his long belt and states that she has no interest in knowing who he is—all she wants is her money back.

Ji-hoon and MC Drill are taken aback when Hye-ri unexpectedly joins them at lunch. She asks what they plan to do now since the agency won’t assemble a new boy group for a few years, and they’ll eventually face enlistment. MC Drill shifts uncomfortably.

Hearing that both boys plan to keep at it, she takes one of Ji-hoon’s sausages, but doesn’t eat it because she can’t. MC Drill quietly texts Ji-hoon to ask when he and Hye-ri became so close, and just as Ji-hoon is about to respond that he’s just as flustered, she reads the words aloud. She tells him to eat, adding that she just didn’t want to eat alone today. MC Drill mouths that he’s scared.

Hyun-jae searches the digits that appeared on his beeper, but the search results don’t indicate a phone number. His phone runs out of juice, and then his eyes fall upon the laptop, remembering that Ji-hoon also used it to search online.

He opens it up and marvels at the screen with his catchphrase “Thumbs up!” He presses a few keys and brings up the web browser, then he looks up his own name.

One result regarding his mysterious disappearance catches his eye, so he clicks the link and stumbles upon a members-only fan forum. He clicks the sign-up option, which then prompts him to answer a question about himself: “What is the only food Hyun-jae can’t eat?”

Knowing that he can eat practically anything, he types “nothing.” A pop-up window tells him that he must not be a true fan of oppa because it’s wrong. Heh. Hyun-jae: “I’M that oppa!” He thinks and tries out different answers, but they’re all wrong, so Hyun-jae closes the laptop, frustrated.

Later, Hyun-jae throws Kwang-jae notes from the roof asking for some bread. Kwang-jae tries waving him away to stay out of sight just as Bo-hee steps outside, so he hands her a box while he runs upstairs to deliver food to Hyun-jae.

Hyun-jae believes the heavens sent him to 2017 in the hopes that he’ll solve his mysterious disappearance in 1994. He asks if Kwang-jae is still in contact with Young-jae.

He’s amused by the idea that things turned out the exact opposite of what he’d hoped: that Kwang-jae would’ve made it big and Young-jae would’ve been penniless. Kwang-jae just says that Young-jae got lucky, and shuts down the idea of going to see him.

When Hyun-jae asks if Kwang-jae knows what food he can’t eat, Kwang-jae doesn’t have a clue. Just then, they hear Ji-hoon’s voice outside, so they stuff themselves in the closet while arguing that they don’t both need to hide.

They both end up in the cramped closet together, and Hyun-jae squirms because he has to pee. Kwang-jae just tells him to hold it in. Ji-hoon eventually falls asleep, which is when the two dads are finally able to crawl out of the closet.

 
EPISODE 10 RECAP

Woo-seung studies quietly at her academy, thinking to herself, “At one point, our goals have turned from passing an exam to escaping this place. We study not to become something, but we fear that we won’t become anything. We study not to gain something, but because we don’t want to lose anything anymore. We study not to pass an exam, but because this is the only thing we know how to do.”

A neighbor passes her a passive-aggressive note, complaining that her stomach is too loud.

Her night gets worse when she loses her part-time gig at the noraebang because it’s going out of business, and she returns home with bagfuls of beer. MC Drill teases her for being great at being fired, and she fires back that it’s better than having nothing to do, like him.

He offers a gesture of peace when he hears that there’s beer, though, and that word also lures Hyun-jae outside. The foursome feasts over beer and snacks from Woo-seung’s ex-part-time jobs, and Ji-hoon wedges himself in between Woo-seung and Hyun-jae, forcing Hyun-jae to sit on the other side.

When Woo-seung wallows in self-pity, MC Drill suggests that they drink and make it a real party tonight. They hang up decorations, and Ji-hoon makes sure to secure his seat next to Woo-seung again.

MC Drill drunkenly diverges that Woo-seung has failed the civil service exam thrice, and Woo-seung blames Hyun-jae for the third time. All she wanted was to get a job and live an average life like everyone else—was that so terrible?

“That’s not a dream,” Hyun-jae replies. He believes dreams should be greater things than trying to earn a living, and asks why she’s working so hard to become a boring police officer. When she calls him a freeloader, he drunkenly mutters that she has no idea who he is, but sticks to his usual amnesiac excuse.

MC Drill brings the party mood back by suggesting that they play a drinking game. They play Categories and take turns naming dramas. While Ji-hoon, MC Drill, and Woo-seung name dramas within the past decade, Hyun-jae names titles from the 1980s to 1990s (The Tree Blooming with Love, Under the Same Roof, Jealousy).

He even sings the Jealousy soundtrack, but none of them recognizes it since that aired before any of them were even born. With time running out, Hyun-jae pulls out his final card: the 1993 Taiwanese TV series Justice Pao.

As expected, the timer runs out on his turn, and Hyun-jae is forced to drink. Later that night, Woo-seung kicks MC Drill off of the keyboard to play her own composition. MC Drill comments that it’s been a while since Woo-seung has tickled the ivories, and Ji-hoon shares that she was a songwriter in a high school band.

Ji-hoon warns that Woo-seung should be cut off from drinking because her drunken habits have “a beginning, a development, a turn, and a conclusion.” The beginning is aegyo, which Hyun-jae observes with a deadpan expression. Ji-hoon looks at her with hearts in his eyes.

The development is inexplicable anger, wherein Woo-seung takes her anger out on a bag of chips before hurling the pieces at MC Drill, who catches a piece in his mouth. The turn is Woo-seung speaking in a Jeolla-do accent even though she’s never stepped foot in that region. Ha.

Last but not least, the conclusion: Woo-seung passed out. Ji-hoon tucks Woo-seung in while MC Drill starts another live broadcast that has zero viewers.

The boys eventually leave Woo-seung to sleep outside, but later, someone in an orange plaid shirt scoops her up and brings her to her room. He carefully removes her glasses and plants a soft kiss on her cheek.

Woo-seung open her eyes and sees the back of that someone leaving the room, whose exit is captured on MC Drill’s phone.

While Ji-hoon is unable to find his broken watch the next morning, Young-jae learns the name of the convenience store part-timer who knew about MJ not writing his song: Woo-seung. Speaking of whom, MJ spots her on the street and pulls over to use his lame “Is your younger sibling named ‘Second Place’?” line. He tosses back her notepad and sends her a wink before driving off.

Kwang-jae is about to head out for a meeting when Bo-hee asks him where all the peanuts have gone. She knows it couldn’t have been Ji-hoon because he’s allergic, and Kwang-jae answers that it must’ve been Grandpa and his recent obsession with nuts… and then he realizes there’s someone else with a nut allergy.

Kwang-jae throws a bagful of leftovers at Hyun-jae, reminding him of the one food he can’t eat: peanut butter, an answer he once gave in an interview.

Ji-hoon waits for Woo-seung outside of study hall, hoping that she can help him pick out a birthday present for Dad. She’s too distracted by his lips, however, and imagines him as her midnight visitor in the orange plaid shirt, tucking her in bed and kissing her cheek. She quickly snaps out of it when he asks why she’s staring.

Over at Dongdaemun, Kwang-jae instructs Hyun-jae to meet him in one hour. Hyun-jae says that his watch is broken, distracted by the shiny stores.

He roams around the shopping center, unknowingly passing Ji-hoon and Woo-seung in a store. She disapproves of Ji-hoon’s tastes and tells him to give her cold hard cash on her birthday.

Hyun-jae is all smiles with his shopping bags (where did he get the money?), and he doubles back to read a poster for a singing competition, where first place prize is a brand-new phone.

After buying a pair of sneakers for Dad, Woo-seung and Ji-hoon walk over to watch the singing competition. When the host asks for another competitor, Woo-seung volunteers Ji-hoon, agreeing to treating him to grilled pork belly if he wins.

They run into Hyun-jae by the registration table, where he comments on Woo-seung’s drunken spectacle last night. He admits to a drunken habit of his own—kissing just about anyone—but that hardly gets him into any trouble, he says.

Now Woo-seung imagines Hyun-jae bringing her back to her room last night, puckering up in several attempts to kiss her on the cheek. He’s confused when Woo-seung angrily hits him with her backpack, and he declares that he’ll use her name in the competition.

Ji-hoon is called up to the stage and he announces that he’ll be doing a dance routine. Kwang-jae happens to tune into the event going on downstairs, while Ji-hoon impresses the crowd with his moves.

He looks like a shoe-in to win it all, until Hyun-jae introduces himself. The host teases him for his throwback ’90s fashion and announces that their final competitor will be performing Jay-2’s “Say It.”

Hyun-jae looks at home singing his own single and the upbeat tempo gets the audience to groove to the melody. Even Woo-seung is impressed with the performance and says he really looked like Yoo Hyun-jae out there, while recognition passes over Ji-hoon’s face.

Hyun-jae is declared the winner, and he can’t hide his delight at his new phone. He runs over to Woo-seung to show off the fancy camera settings, and she invites Ji-hoon over to take a group selfie.

Ji-hoon grumbles but he joins in. That’s when he sees the watch on Hyun-jae’s wrist and accuses him of touching his possessions again. Hyun-jae protests that this is his watch, and complies in taking it off so Ji-hoon can see for himself.

He points out that the inscribed initials (Yu H.J.) aren’t Ji-hoon’s, and Ji-hoon says the watch was a keepsake from his late father. Dumbfounded, Hyun-jae repeats, “Your late father’s keepsake?” And that’s when Kwang-jae shows up to confront them.

Epilogue

At the rooftop beer party, MC Drill puts on Hyun-jae’s orange plaid shirt to keep himself warm. Hyun-jae gets upset when he spills some beer on it and takes it back. But then he tosses it to Ji-hoon to keep warm when he gets up to buy ramyun. Later that night, we see that Woo-seung’s first guess was correct, as Ji-hoon gently tucks her in and leans in to kiss her cheek.

 
COMMENTS

Even if Kwang-jae doesn’t fully believe that Hyun-jae came here straight from the ’90s, I really love that Hyun-jae told him the whole truth. He may be adjusting to the present well enough, but what he needs most is a trusted ally to help him straighten out the circumstances surrounding his presumed death in 1994. I’m glad that Hyun-jae is making key connections so quickly, like how Young-jae must’ve nicked his songs, because zipping through those moments leaves us to enjoy much more of the character relationships. Kwang-jae has plenty of reasons to feel bitter toward Hyun-jae, including but not limited to: leaving Grandpa and World Agency in crippling debt, and the deep sense of abandonment felt by practically everyone he left behind, especially Bo-hee.

I can’t help but wonder if Kwang-jae’s first idea of trying to send Hyun-jae back to the past was his way of working out some deep-seated resentment (though I was in stitches watching him force Hyun-jae to try and try again). I’m sure he means well by keeping Bo-hee in the dark about Hyun-jae’s return, but I do get a little nervous with every little lie he drops, especially since I loved how he stepped up to fill the void Hyun-jae left behind. The longer Hyun-jae stays and doesn’t see Bo-hee, the deeper the resentment she could feel toward Kwang-jae for not telling her sooner. My worry stems from just how sweet I find their interactions together, and the yearning that Bo-hee will one day see Kwang-jae as a man, not just her manager.

Which brings me back to the family dynamics at home, and at this point, I’m convinced that Bo-hee is Ji-hoon’s biological mother. Seeing as Hyun-jae isn’t jumping to seek Bo-hee out in the present, I’m inclined to think that her feelings for him were deeper than his. It’s quite possible that Bo-hee got pregnant during a whirlwind romance and never got a chance to (or decided not to) tell Hyun-jae that he was the baby’s father. And then there’s Mal-sook, whose parentage I still haven’t quite figured out.

As for the young romance, I thought it was pretty obvious that Ji-hoon was the one who brought Woo-seung back inside and kissed her. His watch, the mark on his hand, and his gentlemanly behavior were telling, particularly since we haven’t seen enough of Hyun-jae treating Woo-seung the same way Ji-hoon treats her. If anything, I was more curious as to how and why he was wearing Hyun-jae’s shirt, which was explained in the epilogue. I could see why the show wanted Woo-seung to be confused, and I thought that the reveal of Hyun-jae’s drunken habit of kissing people came too late, especially since that imagined scenario looked nothing like what actually happened.

So seeing that epilogue made me feel sadder for Ji-hoon more than anything. I thought it would’ve been a hilarious twist if MC Drill happened to be her midnight knight, but it appears that her third suitor will be MJ with his super cheesy jokes. I actually don’t see MJ having much of a chance compared to Ji-hoon or Hyun-jae, but if his interactions with Woo-seung give us more dorky and hilarious moments from the diva idol, then I’m all for it.

Gotta say that Hyun-jae deserved those punches from Kwang-jae, what's with him leaving behind a huge debt and a pregnant girlfriend, and dragging his manager/best friend through the mud. He really could use some maturing and start taking active steps to take care of his sticky situation.

I'm not a fan of drunken antics, but Woo-seung is just too cute. What's even more cuter is the way Ji-hoon stared at her with heart eyes and slight smile during her aegyo attack. (I might also enjoyed petty Ji-hoon a bit too much) I squealed to see Woo-seung's response when she think back to the kiss. She definitely like the idea that it was Ji-hoon who did that, which is the sight I need to see to expect my ship sailing (although those glorious shots at Kim Min-jae's lips makes me feel like a pervert).

And the ending scene! Is that the start of another triangle between Kwang-jae, Ji-hoon, and Hyun-jae I saw?? Bring it on, show!

The dad love triangle over their son is the one I wanted from the beginning tbh. I can see it being both incredibly hilarious and incredibly sad. Poor Ji-hoon, how can he possibly pick between the two? Can't he have both dads please, show?

Yay, I think I picked the right ship with WS-JH! Hyun-jae deserved every punch, head butt, and then some! But at the same time, I was squirming at the puppy getting hurt. Hopefully, Ji-hoon won't have to choose between the two dads. That hurts my heart just thinking about that. I wish I were more articulate/coherent, but here
is yet another show that's turning me into a broken record: I love this show!

Well, I don's think that is entirely true that Hyun-jae deserved every punch or headbutt, after all, when he came to future he had not gotten Boo-hee Pregnant and he still wanted good things for his manager, and he generally just seemed clueless rather than evil minded. I think in generally he is not that bad right now, and I believe he has a generally good heart.

Ddabbong (HJ 2017) does not have any recollection about what happened between 1993 and 1994. so he doesnt know about any relationship with BH, he doesnt know what happened to they money, he's also not aware that he left GJ's company in crippling debt.

HJ as GJ's punching bag is funny. because GJ is so nice, he needs an outlet to express his frustration. and currently his outlet is Ddabbong. haha. he was so adamant to send HJ back to the past, he forced him multiple times down the stairs. 😂. HJ-GJ interactions in 2017 are so much fun because despite GJ being older, at the same time they're the same age. i provides lots of laughter from their interactions alone and also the reactions from others seeing them (like the grandpa at the store hitting HJ for being disrespectful).

HJ's official dissapearance as reported by media is in 1994. i'm so curious about what happened between 1993-1994. it makes me wonder, are there two HJ's? one in the future, another in 1993? because if HJ is in 2017, how about all the stuff that happened in 1993? so many questions. i like this drama so much! 😆

I finally understood all this in the next episode! Wish they had made it a bit more clear, because it took me a while to realize he didn't remember that whole chuck of time. And, yes, got me all confused wondering whether there are 2 Hyun-jae's, lol. Haha, there's definitely so much to figure out!

but has he indeed left behind a pregnant girlfriend?
or is the girlfriend, given how dimwit she is, is completely clueless who she slept with

I’m almost convinced that Bo-hee might’ve mistaken HJ as the father of her child OR she’s covering up something more shady about the identity of the real father. I mean if you actually dated someone (seriously or just a fling), HJ will not have that kind of reaction. When Gwang-jae told HJ that HJ had an affair with Bo-hee, HJ was bewildered as if he’s not aware that it was even possible. Having a son from a possibly dubious relationship is more surprising. But something happened between 93-94 that is very trivial.

Someone theorized in a different forum that there’s a possibility that Young-jae (Starpunch CEO) had an affair with Bo-hee. Between HJ and the CEO’s treatment towards Bo-hee, it’s obvious that the CEO had and still has affection towards her, so it is also possible.

Ohhh this theory has potential! Maybe Bo-hee was in love with HJ and in her drunk stupour slept with YJ (CEO of Starpunch) thinking he was HJ.. and so the confusion.

It's obvious that Bo-hee is slightly delusionally in love with HJ (Cmon she hasnt forgotten him in 20 yrs despite having Gj take care of her so nicely??).. so its possible that 1 year of their dating might have just been HJ being nice to her & she reading too much into it?

Oh man...and JH is a trainee in YJ's agency?!?! My head is about to explode...
And given YJ's reaction when he saw BH a few episodes ago, it seems that he lost contact with BH that I'm not surprised if he never knew she had a kid...
Argh...as much as I would like JH to be HJ's kid, it seems like the show has made it too easy for us - we are told outright in the 1st/2nd episode of it! Perhaps for us to be comfortable with this "fact" such that when another revelation is made our minds would be blown?? Say what you might, but in terms of birth secrets and who comes out tops at the end, this show is beating Game of Thrones...

I don't know but there was this episode which showed that ji hoon even sleeps in the same way that hyun jae does. Either that's a false alibi or it gives away the fact that hyun jae is the real dad indeed. For now I don't see any similarity between youngjae and ji hoon either.

true.. but i think that body language is a learnt activity rather genes.. maybe coincidence?
but to be fair there isnt much similarity b/w ji-hoon and HJ.. unless u count his one song..

i am actually betting on the peanut incident..

it is very clear that except for HJ everyone else including CTH thinks that HJ can't eat peanuts and LJ has acquired that from his father..

BUT How can HJ not know that he is allergic to peanuts.. didn't he say he can eat everything.. and when CTH bought him peanut butter, HJ was still confused?

Maybe HJ didn't like the flavor of peanuts.. but its YJ/real daddy who has peanut allergy..

Since ep 1 , i have been putting my money on YJ being the father

1

I also suspected the other J2 as Ji Hoo's father, just because Hyun Jae seems so indifferent towards Bo Hee (granted they supposed relationship hasn't started yet when he travelled in time) - this will also be interesting dynamic if the CEO didn't choose his own son to debut and may give way for more dramatic / angst in the future.

The show really got me with the youngster' love triangle though, I was so sure it's going to be Hyun Jae - Woo Sung, Ji Hoo - trainee girl. The father son love triangle thing is a bit icky if I think about it but Yoon Shi Yoon has good chemistry with the female lead. On the other hand, Ji Hoo's character is typical second male lead character and it'll be nice for once that the good guy gets the girl.

yes but the second lead female is also nice. and matches personality wise to LJ..

the way i see it.. story's hero is LJ and HJ is here to save him or make his life.. whatever.. or maybe to save himself...

And my money again is on that CEOs wife being the real villain.. she wanted YJ.. must have laid all the trap from BH to disappearance of HJ and acquiring his notebook

where in these two episodes did Kwang-jae tell HJ he had an affair with Bo-hee?

THAT EPILOGUE I’M DEAD JH’s loving expression at WS has killed me. That OST is so pretty too perfectly fits that moment. (replays x100)

JH and WS are definitely endgame so I can take a big sigh of relief now and just enjoy the show. The epilogue and the wildly different reactions WS had to imagining which guy kissed her make it pretty clear. I feel like the writers will keep trolling us with WS-HJ “moments”, but it’s okay I’m on to them now. If it means more of JH being petty and jealous I can't complain. Also it seems WS is finally starting to be attracted to JH, she looked damn thirsty for his lips. Me too girl! KMJ has the most beautiful lips! I’m glad to see it because I was starting to get a little annoyed at how she treats JH.

I also loved Ji-hoon smiling while everyone else grimaced at WS’s cute drunk act, lol he looked so pleased to be called Oppa.

Aside from the ick factor the other reason I'm glad they aren't going for HJ-WS love-line is because I feel like that sort of romance would've needed more focus to be believable and taken away from the light-heartedness and comedy that I'm watching this for. The friends-to-lovers dynamic of WS-JH works much better as a sideplot developing slowly and subtly in the background.

I’m glad it has been pretty much confirmed that HJ and BH are JH’s biological parents. I would’ve been pretty upset if it wasn’t the case. I guess HJ will have to go back to the past or something for that to work out, I’m very confused, but very intrigued.

In the first episode I thought JH didn’t know Yoo Hyun-jae was his dad, but the watch means he does, though since he’s only seen his father in pictures I can buy that he wouldn’t recognize him. I already felt my heart tug when JH talked about the watch being from his dad, so I’m prepared to cry buckets as the relationship between them becomes clear. Honestly the father-son thing is what really hooked me early on, I’m looking forward to it a lot more than the romance or mystery elements. I’m really looking forward to the awkwardness as HJ tries to come to grips with having an adult son the same age as he is currently and hopefully trying as best he can to be a good dad to JH. I feel like it will be bittersweet though because I don't think HJ will be able to stay in the present.

Ji-hoon's gaze in the epilogue is something he's seen daily since he can remember; he's following the example from his "dad", with the way he looks at Bo hee. Sweet. So sweet!

The HJ/WS connection feels a lot more loveliney to me than JH/WS, particularly with the bitchy idol hovering around Ji Hoon now.

Woo Seung really treats Ji Hoon like a friend and even he doesn't seem sure what to do with himself in terms of crushing on her. Meanwhile we've had three kisses between Hyun Jae and Woo Seung, and they're spending a hell of a lot of time around each other. If we want to go with a drama trope, she's kind of got him in a contract marriage, except it's a slave contract.

And honestly I can't quite see this show having Hyun Jae kiss Woo Seung on the lips, then have his son kiss her later in the show. That's... odd.

I think it's much odder to have the father end up with his son's long-term crush. The accidental kisses were just a gag imo because of the spinning car and the way the mom predicted it (stung by a bee 3x). Woo-seung I think is pretty dense to her own feelings and the feelings of those around her, so I wouldn't be surprised if she's attracted to Ji-hoon and just doesn't know it yet. She really looked like she was liking the idea of kissing Ji-hoon, the way she touched her own lips (like she wanted a kiss on the lips) and got completely lost in staring at his lips. Meanwhile she was just disgusted at the idea of it being HJ and hits him for it. I'll be pretty shocked at this point especially having seen ep 11-12 already if they go for HJ-WS.

I really don't care that much which loveline happens, I'm just not seeing anything that would tip the scales for JH/WS, including what I saw in 11-12. If anything, the slow build of communication and sympathy between Hyun Jae and Woo Seung (in the moments between their arguing) make me think that's basis for a romance.

And again: girl idol. I don't think she's in the mix for MC Drill.

Indeed, I agree. Haha. I think it's pretty much 99.99% WS-HJ. But I wonder how it'll work with WS in the present, and HJ from the past. At some point, HJ surely needs to go back, then what happens to WS? Maybe that's the open ended ending. WS's first love, HJ's last love.

Whilst JH's one-sided love and friendship for WS is adorable, I just don't think WS feels anything more for JH other than a treasured Best Friend.

0

In respect to your and miranda's post,I am also routing for JH-WS. Why? Just cause they have been friends for so long, and I felt WS yet has to acknowledge JH as a man rather than just a friend, so there's that. But sure it will be interesting if she discovers herself liking him slowly. Yes there has been three kisses between HJ and WS, but they didn't give a romantic vibe to me. If anything I felt HJ is slowly becoming a good friend to WS rather than a lover. I feel this story is more of the bonding between a father and son, and the reason HJ came to the future is to make his son realizing his life's purpose and if he wants to be either an idol or a rookie officer, HJ as his father will help him figure out his own path. The story did start from Ji Hoon saying 'that's my father hyun jae'. So, apart from the romance arc, the main camaraderie between hyun jae and how he becomes friends with his same aged son would be hilarious and endearing at the same time. So, just for that I'm keeping my fingers crossed that WS would be with Ji Hoon at the end. Cause it just doesn't make sense hyun jae having relationship with WS, considering ji hoon is his son, and WS being JH's friend. In any case, I am here for the ride ^^.

I'm actually with you on this one, even though I entertained the idea of HJ and WS last week.

While I could go either way, because I also really like the natural camaraderie WS and HJ have developed recently, I found myself suddenly feeling more potential romance for JH based on the reactions to the kiss. It could partially be because her understanding of JH's more earnest nature would instantly make her feel more nervous because she knows that the kiss would mean something. Whereas, with HJ, she knows that it would just be a drunken mistake. I noticed everything you did though about her response to JH though and think he could actually have a shot now.

I want her to see him rap! I wish JH would realize he has the potential to floor people the same way HJ did. That dance just doesn't show it.

I think it's pretty obvious what our OTPs are: Jihoon and Wooseung, Kwangjae and Bonghee and Hyunjae and phone LOL
Anyway, it's been pretty obvious to me that Hyunjae wouldn't be romantically involved with either girl and would rather be the catalyst that brings the two couples together because both guys are so threatened by him. Despite no one being happy he's there, our hero will save Kwangjae's company, help Jihoon with his dream and play cupid for both. That's just how awesome a main character he is!

I love that this show incorporates some fun little variety games. It was nice seeing Hyun Jae being included with the others and just hanging out with them.

I'm not hardcore shipping anyone yet, but I'd rather see Ji Hoon + Woo Seung than Woo Seung + Hyun Jae. Not seeing anything romantic between WS + HJ, but I do like them as friends.

I can't wait to see Hyun Jae being a mentor to JH and helping him achieve his dream. I'm still not sure why JH wants to be a celebrity. I would like to see Woo Seung pursue a dream besides being a police officer too. I'm curious about her talents and passions. We got a hint of it when she was playing the keyboard and doing a good job of it.

Hyun Jae's performance was awesome!!! ❤️❤️❤️ So mesmerizing.
Love the song. Don't mind the old school sound at all. It was great that JH + WS got to finally see him perform too.

I'm intrigued by Hyun Jae's mystery, but I'm glad that it is not dragged out or placed as the main focus of the plot so far.

I'm pretty sure JH wanting to be an idol is because of daddy issues lol. Something like wanting to feel closer to the father he's never met by pursuing the same dream? At least that's how it probably started, but I think it's clear at this point that he genuinely enjoys performing.

That's because a year passes in the past between when HJ travels to the present and when he actually disappears for good. I think they said HJ came from 1993, but didn't disappear until 1994, so there is a full year that HJ doesn't know what happened to him leading up to his disappearance. Bo-hee doesn't seem to be the type to lie about that anyways.

Required fields are marked *

With peichi's reply in mind, I do wonder if perhaps JH has yet to be conceived in HJ's timeline...and maybe HJ has yet to be in a relationship with BH at all...If so, it does seem very strange that if/when HJ returns to 1993, he would actively seek out BH just so as to ensure JH would exist, because you know, he's befriended and developed a relationship with JH in the present and can't imagine a world where JH doesn't exist, whether or not HJ himself may vanish in 1994...
I wonder why HJ and KJ have yet to discuss if HJ may have appeared to have been different in the timeframe that HJ has yet to live: if the mid1993 to 1994 HJ is supposed to have been a time HJ lived after having experienced 2017, surely he would have be a tad different, if not odd, right? Like making references to this amazing thing palm sized thing that you can find all answers on and watch or listen to anything? Or maybe even come across as a tad more matured?

I was one of those who posed a similar question to @lazielizard's, but not because I doubt the truthfulness of JH being HJ's biological son. Rather, I'm curious about how the relationship between HJ and BH would take shape in the past since he doesn't seem to see her in a romantic light (at least not yet). Like you, it would seem odd that he upon returning to his time would actively date BH just because of his meeting with JH in the present. I'd love to see what the show has in store for us as to how the relationship between HJ and BH would play out. There are a few scenarios I'm thinking about, including HJ noticing a side to BH in the present that would lead to him falling for her once he's back, but that would probably be pretty disheartening for KJ considering BH still doesn't seem to get over HJ yet.

I'm curious too to see how the time travelling aspect would be explained, if at all, later on.

actively date plus hide the fact that he is dating BH.. and run away from her..

because that is what has happened..

so either way YSY has done that.. if he indeed dated BH, he hid the fact and he disappeared without knowing abt pregnancy... so at best thsi YSY can go back and well if he chooses to actively date BH.. he will extend the respect of it being acknowledged..

Therefore, none of this makes sense.. because if he dated BH after returning.. then who dated BH in the original timeline? If he did not date BH then whom did she sleep with

Sorry I don't quite follow what you mean. Please correct me if I get you wrong.

I understand that you meant he was actively dating BH in the past? That is at least not my impression from the hints the show has made available up to this point. His reactions in ep 11-12 further confirm my impression.

As other beanies have pointed out, there was a year gap between his being transported to the future in 1993 and his mysterious disappearance in 1994. JH must have been born in 1995 to make his age 23 in 2017 (Korean age, equivalent to 22 international age), which means BH must have conceived him in 1994. There is therefore a possibility (and a high chance at that) that HJ would return to the past and date, or accidentally sleep with BH (though I would prefer if he wouldn't) in 1994 before his disappearance.

Due to this one-year gap, no one is likely dating BH in the original timeline (which is still 1993) and she hasn't slept with anyone yet.

1

Well, he did say that he randomly kisses people when he's been drinking. One thing leads to another.

They've laid the groundwork that he was self-focused and irresponsible. (Although they hadn't conceived a son yet, weren't they already dating? If so he doesn't seem very curious about her.)

I imagine they'll use his self focus as part of a redemptive plot arc. *yay, my catnip!* And there's no one better at playing a cheerful guy with an awakening heart than YSY. *yay, more catnip!* ❤️

Yeah, with the most recent revelation about his bad drunken habit I think it might be possible, besides throwing off the scent for WS concerning the kiss when she was drunk the night before.

I personally still don't think they were dating in the past. Judging from his interactions with WS I think he's just comfortable around women. One of his conversations with KJ revealed that he got entangled in quite a few rumours with other female celebrities too. I think with the latest development in ep 12, though I won't spoil it here, we'll learn more from BH's side of the story as to what happened that led to her pregnancy. That might throw some light onto this birth mystery.

2

You must be right about them not dating before his time travel. It's one thing to be irresponsible. It's another thing to be dating someone while not caring about them at all.

From the punches, attempts to go back to the past, MJ'S bad jokes...this episode was so good. What won't Hyun Jae do to get a phone? Dongu-yah looked so cool performing and the song is quite catchy.

I held my breath when MC Drill wore the shirt (that would have been far too hilarious) and was so happy it is JH in the end. Woo Seung reminds me of so many of us (myself included) taking the safe road only to get burnt so many times for not following your dream. It is hard I know but if the possible/predictable career is proving too difficult for you, why not try the impossible(unconventional)? She is a composer and needs to start doing ASAP. Looking forward to her development.

Even after watching episode 11 - 12, I feel like HJ is not JH'S father for some reason. Still don't know how the little girl is related to everyone else.

I just love how quick the stories are developed in this drama. You'd expect from a comedy drama that certain gags will be stretched like the chair gag, but no they fixed it in the previous episode lol. Also every week, some secrets are revealed. What do you expect from a drama that revealed Jihoon and Hyunjae's relationship in the first episode? While I have bee enjoying the comedy and the relatable struggles of the kids, I find the speed of story development refreshing, leaving me having something to look forward to every episode eventhough this isn't a crime/suspense drama.

And yea, I'm with you guys. I briefly thought MC Drill was the man lol. Also I want a gif of YSY drunk kiss to Wooseung. I don't ship them or anyone, but that was just a very Donggu scene lol.

I know there are some theories going on about the possibility of Hyunjae not actually being Jihoon's dad but I sure hope not. I don't want it to be a fake out. It would be great to explore the father-son dynamic. I think it'll be really sweet and heartwarming. I can just see Hyunjae learning to be a dad by helping out Jihoon to pursue his dream and Jihoon looking up to Hyunjae not only as a role model but also a father. It'll be really cute.

Actually they do not both have peanut allergy. HJ doesnt at least. The peanut jam thing is what GJ remembers about HJ. I think it'll be silly if HJ doesn't know his own allergy. It's typical of Showbiz to have fake tidbits here and there about the celebrity. Sometimes it's fabricated by the agent company to make fans empathise with the particular celeb, or sometimes fans erroneously created such a fake news with their own perception and bias prejudices.

I think this is the case with HJ. Peanut allergy is likely a fake tidbit/news about HJ. That's why he can't remember and doesn't know about it.

That's what trips me a bit though...people tend not to forget their own allergies...it seems more likely to me that the reason HJ didn't even know he had an "allergy" was probably because he probably made it up, perhaps to politely reject a peanut butter food gift...
And Im not sure if food allergies can be inherited...

Maybe HJ just don't have severe allergic reactions to peanut? I'm not 100% sure since we need a little bit more context to this, but I've got stomach upset whenever I have chicken then have vitamin-C rich drinks or juices. However I only remember it when I see both types of food. If someone asks me all of a sudden if I've got allergy to any food, or if there's any food I cannot eat, it wouldn't probably occur to me to remember that combo, because my allergy is not life-threatening. It might be the case for HJ too. Plus he doesn't seem to be the type to pay too close attention to what he eats either.

I was curious so I looked it up and peanuts are not common in Korean food at all, so it's not unusual he wouldn't know or would forget if he hadn't eaten anything with peanuts in a while that he was allergic to them. They are a new world crop, so no traditional Korean food would contain them and only rarely are they used usually as a substitute for another nut. Not to mention in 1993 he would be a lot less exposed to western foods than in 2017.

Isn't it just a chocolate bar? A plain chocolate bar wouldn't have peanuts. Usually if there's peanuts it's in the filling (like Snickers and Butterfingers), but the Freedom bar didn't look like it had filling.

I need some context here: how embarrassing is the catchphrase "dda bong"? Was it really used in the 90s? Is there an English equivalent that could help me understand the level of datedness and humour factor it lends to the drama? Thanks in advance!

The last time I heard that in a reality show was in Superman. The SoDa siblings went out to pick and eat a fruit (orange I think), and they made sort of a parody of an old fruit juice commercial with the catchphrase "Ddabong" (which can be translated in diff ways: thumbs up, that's good! etc.).

Also, if I'm not.mistaken the little girl in Reply 1988 was dancing/watching a commercial jingle with the same catchphrase. That's how old the phrase is. Probably in modern days, they're using more 좋네! (Johne or johtta) or 대박! (Daebak!).

Thanks - i was looking for this context too. So it's basically the equivalent of saying "Thumbs up" loud instead of just the gesture?

I thought it was the Portuguese/Brazilian phrase "tá bom"! Which is similar to the Spanish "esta bien," and has the same meaning of "it's good/it's all right/it's fine." I don't know why that would ever be a catchphrase in Korea but stranger things have happened...

Hahahaha still laughing at Gwang Jae forcing Hyun Jae to fall down the stairs for what seemed like an entire day to send him back to the past!! Although Gwang Jae's bitter feelings towards Hyun Jae are justified. 1993 Hyun Jae must have really been a selfish person.

Aww, Ji Hoon is so smitten with Woo Seung, I feel quite sad there is a chance they don't end up together haha. The way he looks at her, even during the whole drunk act, and the peck on the cheek!! Glad he's acting on his crush. I mean look at the competition!! Hahaha I didn't think MJ would be a suitor though, although that joke with Woo Seung's name actually made me laugh. Looking forward to more of his character. He's really good looking, who is this guy haha

I think if the little kid is blood related to anyone it's the grandpa. She seems to interact with him the most. I don't think she's his daughter lol or even granddaughter, so maybe like a grandniece or something. She could be adopted too.

Hyun Jae being pushed down the stairs over and over again was hilariously. I also thought when woo-seung was thinking about who kissed her how funny it would be if it was MC drill and when we got to the epilogue and he was putting on Hyun Jae's shirt I went "i knew it!" but then I was wrong, lol. I'm glad it was Ji-Hoon, he's obviously in love with her and she obviously seems to have some sort of feelings back.

Oh god. These two episodes compelled me to do away with the persistently unpleasant idea that Woo Seung is Ji-hoon's biological mother (I initially thought that Woo Seung and Hyun Jae would travel back to the past together and Woo Seung would give birth to Ji-hoon lols)
Yoon Si-Yoon's idiotic yet cute attempt to adapt to the modern life is definitely the magnetic point of this show to me. And btw what about MJ? Will he join the quadrilateral love of Ji-hoon, Hyun Jae and Woo Seung ?

Here some thoughts before reading the recaps :
I realized that I appreciated the cameos and the epilogues as much as the drama development itself. So I am still waiting to see JJY (with Roy Kim please *wink*) . I loved how the epilogue played with us : oh so it was MC Drill who kissed her , then no it was Hyun Jae and finally the answer it was Ji Hoon *swoon*.
Personally I ship for Woo Seung and Ji Hoon, I can’t imagine Hyun Jae with her because of the age gap and father-son relationship (unknown now but according to the preview at least Hyun Jae will know the truth in the next episodes). I loved the confrontation between son and father in the singing/dancing contest, thank you Yoon Si Yoon for this amazing performance.
Finally Gwang Jae knows that Hyun Jae has not disappeared but was transported 20 years later, I believe he will become a relatable friend to Hyun Jae after some time to accept the whole new vision of the story : Hyun Jae did not abandon them and Bo Hee , neither was he aware of her pregnancy.
Just saying : Ji Hoon what was that green shirt ???!! I just can’t *sorry not sorry*.
Also who is the little girl ? I don’t think she is Gwang Jae or Bo Hee ‘s daughter, neither somehow CEO’s granddaughter.
Off to watch ep 11-12 and then read the recaps, thank you gummimochi.

i'm so intrigued to know what happened between 1993 and 1994. we are still missing a year of information.

this is the timeline i managed to capture:
1) may 1993 - j2 won music show award
2) sometime 1993 - HJ announces J2s disbandment to GJ
3) sometime 1993 - HJ takes lots of money and put it in his car trunk (what happened to money?
4) sometime in 1993 - during the typhoon, GJ left a voice msg telling HJ to run, the situation is bad (what situation has not been shared yet)
5) sometime in 1993 - HJ falls down the stairs and ends up in 2017 (i think this is in june 1993)
6) sometime in 1994 - HJ dissapears, a month after his dissapearance, they found his car at the riverside.

between point 2) to 6) above is a whole chunk of hidden information. why did HJ want to disband? why did he take the money alone? where is the money? why did GJ told him to run that night?

hopefully 'HJ's Dissapearance Fan Forum' can help shine some light on this mystery (and outlandish fan conspiracy theories are welcomed for some laughs 😂😂)

Ooo, great thing, a timeline! What stands out for me is for the current timeline to happen, Hyun-jae must return to the past, but surely this will affect current time? Unless his disappearance in 1994 is him going back to the future for good. But still sucks for Bo-hee then, ugh. Feels like I'm running around in circles here O_o
Just realized, basically show is stealthily slipping in amnesia trope!

I laughed so hard at this epi. Thank you Hyun Jae (and Kwang Jae) for the laughs! The only pairing that I sincerely wish to end up together is Kwang Jae-Bo Hee. They are now old enough not to waste more time and Kwang Jae waited and was patient for 20 years. I mean how saint he is as a guy and taking care of a woman and someone else's son with no marriage relationship. In this regard, I resent Bo Hee a bit. I know her scars but with a nice guy waiting for you for 20 years and even taking care the son, I am just hoping her for completely move on from Hyun Jae.

I can't predict if Hyun Jae will go back to the past or not, I don't want him to go back but if he stays in the present (and if it is proven he is JH's actual dad) ,I just don't know how they can make it. But I'll enjoy Hyun Jae and his relationship with handphone (and every new things he discovered).

About the romance, I don't really ship anyone. I like Hyun Jae-Woo Seung interactions but I don't think it will be any romantic feeling. Hyun Jae is too busy with so many things happen to him, so romance is not his focus. Woo seung is struggling with her life - study & part time jobs. Ji Hoon seems to just has one sided love with Woo Seung, I don't think Woo Sung has any feeling for him (and I want them to stay as best friend, it's too boring if the plot from best friend to lover used again.) Who knows Drill could be the next one who has a crush with WS.lol. Hye Ri also seems to have a crush with Ji Hoon. I think the possible ending for romance part for is the open ending, that's what I want.

I'm guessing we'll need to solve HJ's 1994 disappearance. If HJ goes back to the past, conceives Ji Hoon, and doesn't disappear - what does that mean for Kwang-Jae? Will he find a new love? Just be lonely forever? Or maybe after spending some more time with HJ, Bo Hee will leave him for KJ?

This is why time travel gives me a headache!

I keep rooting for Ji Hoon's feelings towards Woo-seung to be reciprocated, on the other hand, i feel like he's in on a loosing battle. It seems like Hyun-jae is the biggest opponent and i can't imagine how it'd feel loose the of your dreams to your father.
I like the blossoming friendship between Ji-hoon and Hye-ran though.

I couldn't believe Kwang-jae made Hyun-jae spend the whole day going down the stairs on a plastic sled. The singing competition was fun and now we know Woo-seung is a musician and composer so hopefully they can write/perform and use Drill's show to promote their music.

Thank you for the recap!
I've been waiting for this to put my thoughts into words. There are so many things I love about this episode, and many highlights too, but I'll just focus on one of them because it sends some very powerful messages: that is Hyun-Jae's performance.

The first message it conveys is very straightforward: it encourages one to stay true to one's dreams. This message is clearly a wake-up call, either wittingly or unwittingly, sent to people like WS who has to give up on her dream of working in the music industry to resort to a safer and more stable career pathway, because the bitter truth to this industry is that musician as an occupation doesn't last long unless one absolutely stands out from the rest. Hyun-Jae becomes the messenger of the show in getting this inspirational message across. This wake-up call might not shake WS back to her original dream right away, but I can see how Hyun-Jae will fit into the kids' lives and help them achieve what they have always wanted to achieve.

The second message is concerning the cynicism and skepticism towards new performers based on their looks. I can't help but note how the MC made comments about Hyun-Jae's outdated outfit and gave him a dubious side glance at his pick of a dated song. Same goes for WS who was quick to fear second-hand embarrassment for the guy based on her previous experience and perception of him as a weird guy who doesn't seem to belong to her time, until they were all blown away by his performance. This reminds me of many past performances in talent shows such as Susan Boyle's, Marc Metral's and his talking dog (both from Britain's Got Talent), and Aida's (Ukraine's Got Talent) where the judges and in former cases, many of the audience as well, were skeptical and doubtful, only to be proven wrong.

However, I don't think the purpose of the show is to criticise the MC or WS per se, but is targeting something else that runs deeper within all of us. The show didn't go overboard with everyone's reactions when Hyun-Jae went onto the stage; as in, they were not outwardly disapproving or overly critical. I find it realistic because some of our cynicism is subtle and deeply ingrained we sometimes might not even be aware of it. For the record, I'm not free of prejudice and am still battling to rid of it whenever I'm made aware of my own prejudice. I like how the show uses Hyun-Jae's performance to achieve that awesome sense of satisfaction and victory when doubt and misassumption is challenged and discarded.

P.S. Coincidentally, Susan Boyle's choice of song was also dream-related, I dream a dream, which I find to be a very interesting parallel to Hyun-Jae's Say It

I just rewatched this episode again (for the jokes!), and boy, this show is really a mystery drama disguised as a sitcom! There are so many questions but the tone is so light that watchers don't feel burdened by the unknowns/uncovered.
And I'm wondering about the doodle he made early in episode 9. Somehow it feels that the "crossed out house = slow" bit might have a factor in influencing Young Jae to not hastily acquire KJ's building. But I don't know what the bits about "shirt x 2 and pants x 1 = "1" " might mean. I hope Young Jae might misread it as some "prophecy" that would benefit our 2 hardworking trainees, e.g. debuting a duo/trio group with the music that the doodle is drawn over...

Yeah, they could be trolling us the same way they did with the kiss... For me it is very weird that HJ suddenly would become interested in BH, or that he would force himself to have something with her just for JH to be born. I prefer to think that the father of JH is part of the mystery and that we will learn about it later.

Body swap as well as time swap? cha tae hyun goes back to 1993 in Hyun Jae's body, steals the money together with his younger self to get back to 2017 through the time warp Hyun Jae came in so they can pay of the debt on the building and avoid old J2 partner from taking over. Or maybe Hyun Jae finds out something in this present time that makes him want to help by going back to get the money and then return ? but when the time slips happens something goes wrong or his partner finds out and does something to him ? then all of a sudden we have an older Hyun Jae in some mental hospital with amnesia since 1994 and the money still stashed away ? let's hope the stopping of the watch does not mean HY has to make a decision that means that either he or Jihoon will cease to exist....and i just gave myself headaches from thinking about those time paradoxes...:):)

It was a fun episode and I am super-curious now about what happened to HJ, mostly because I wonder how both timelines are tied together: if HJ came to 2017 to find out what happened to him in 1994, he should somehow agree with his disappearance so the future is not changed...or maybe he is going to act differently and will change the future? Ufff, it's very complicated...

While everyone is discussing 'who the father is', honestly, I'm surprised that Bo Hee is really Ji Hoon's mother. She doesn't act like his mom, at least not in the usual caring, protective way of kdrama mothers. She really doesn't seem interested in anyone very much, maybe because her idol dreams were crushed 20 years ago (?)

Anyway, I hope the drama doesn't turn melo with this birth secret thing - I'd love the writer to resolve it in a wacky way (Like I would have loved if MC Drill had kissed WS and destroyed all our cliches about drunk kissing. We were trolled.)

I think the way Bo-hee disciplined the Helter-Skelter girls was very mom-ish and says a lot about what sort of mother she is towards Ji-hoon. It's not hard to see how Ji-hoon ended up as such a straight-laced guy with a mother with such a hair trigger temper. Not the usual kdrama mom, but not really unlike plenty of real moms. I think she's just air-headed, but she cares about her family, she only wanted to go on tv so she could help pay off the debts after all. I feel like we just haven't really gotten any scenes of BH and JH alone together. I hope we do though, maybe we will during the fall-out when GJ finds out JH is a trainee, because I feel like BH wouldn't be against it.
