Entertainer: Episode 11

This is really Ha-neul’s episode, as he and the band deal with the fallout of his very public scandal. The best way to face criticism is with honesty and sincerity, and if there’s anything Ddanddara band has in spades, it’s that. But they can only tell one side of the story, and they’re going to need a little help if the whole truth is to come to light.

 

 
EPISODE 11 RECAP

Ha-neul’s story telling his side of his conviction goes public, and the band find themselves greeted by a wall of reporters. Ha-neul looks like he wants to escape, until Seok-ho takes his hand in support. Geu-rin takes his other hand, and Ha-neul is able to face the reporters.

On the ride home Seok-ho asks them not to read any news stories for a while, especially not the comments. But Ha-neul looks anyway, and the fan response is not good. As his manager, Geu-rin tries to confiscate his phone for a while, but he takes it back and promises to stop reading.

Seok-ho isn’t nearly so confident in front of Min-joo and Man-shik, and he talks to Mr. Byun about it, and how the actual offender is in KTOP. He hasn’t told anyone else that part, and Mr. Byun doesn’t seem one bit surprised that CEO Lee would stoop so low.

When Ji-young sees the articles she texts Ha-neul, saying that the one being destroyed isn’t her as he said, but him. Jinu also sees the stories, and slumps in frustration.

Mr. Byun confronts CEO Lee, making it clear that he knows the true offender is here in KTOP. CEO Lee plays innocent, and Mr. Byun almost looks as if he pities the man. He mentions an artist named Choi Jun-ha, whose second album’s success practically made KTOP what it is today, and CEO Lee starts to squirm.

Mr. Byun wonders out loud if he should tell the world that the songs on that album were stolen from Sung-hyun, unless CEO Lee tells the truth and clears Ha-neul’s name. CEO Lee laughs that semi-unhinged laugh, and asks how Mr. Byun plans to even find Choi Jun-ha for proof when he’s been in hiding for a decade? And that’s assuming he’d even be willing to tell the truth.

CEO Lee pretends that his main concern is Ha-neul, and how he’d feel if he knew who it was that handed over Sung-hyun’s songs to Lee in the first place. But Mr. Byun knows the truth behind that, too — Seok-ho only gave CEO Lee those songs to prove Sung-hyun’s talent and ask Lee to promote him, not to give to another artist.

But CEO Lee has another ace up his sleeve — Seok-ho thinks Sung-hyun died of a heart attack. How would he react to know that it was suicide? He tells Mr. Byun to bring him something better if he wants to make any deals, and Mr. Byun accepts his challenge.

Yeon-soo is in full-on mother-hen mode, making sure that Jae-hoon isn’t being harassed at school and asking Kyle not to make jokes about Ha-neul’s situation. They’re all worried about Ha-neul since he’s got his phone off, and they bark at him in unison when he walks in with Chan-hee like nothing’s wrong, ha.

Over at KTOP, Jinu isn’t doing so well, and he asks Joo-han to help him hold a press conference to confess the truth, that he was the true “aggressor” and Ha-neul is innocent. But he’s barking up the wrong tree, especially since CEO Lee is furious that Ji-young’s name is already being bandied about as the one who framed Ha-neul.

When Joo-han is called to CEO Lee’s office, Jinu swipes the phone he left behind, and sees that Joo-han has the incriminating video still on it. He quickly texts it to someone (himself maybe?) and then deletes the evidence.

Joo-han is scared of what Ji-young will do if KTOP does anything to her because of the scandal, so CEO Lee tells him to rewrite her contract to reflect that she was signed by KTOP six months before the scandal. He also gives instructions to get rid of the weak link — Jinu.

Ha-neul may be presenting a brave face to the band, but when he’s alone, he’s tempted to check the online articles anyway. Whatever he sees shakes him and he passes out, and thank goodness Seok-ho arrives in time to get him to the hospital.

Once he wakes he admits that he looked, because he hoped that by telling the truth people would trust him. But the reaction is overwhelmingly negative and for the first time, he truly felt like he was the predator they think he is.

Seok-ho confesses that he used to think that even negative attention was good, but now he knows that’s not true. Ha-neul apologizes for not being able to hold up like he promised, but Seok-ho wants to take the blame, so they promise each other that they will both stop feeling responsible.

Later Geu-rin finds Seok-ho looking guilty anyway, and she sits with him, trying not to show her own worry and failing miserably. She says that she wishes Ha-neul’s parents were here with him, and Seok-ho tells her that no matter how hard she tried to be a good guardian, she was really still too young herself.

He assures her that Ha-neul will be okay, calling her by name for the first time. He says that Ha-neul has her standing with him, and she has Seok-ho standing by her. She’s not alone anymore, so she doesn’t need to be scared.

When Ha-neul seems more worried about Geu-rin than she is about him, she comments that he worries too much for his sister. He tilts his head at her thoughtfully and asks, “Is that what you think this is?”

He gets about halfway through an actual, real live confession, but he’s interrupted by Min-joo, Man-shik, and Mr. Byun. He’d be more disappointed, except Man-shik brings news that he’s got a new song for Ddanddara Band, which puts a big gorgeous smile on Ha-neul’s face.

Man-shik wants to do something to cheer the band up, and Mr. Byun suggests they pool their money to do something for them. They could use a boost, and to know that they have supportive fans out there.

That night Geu-rin falls asleep with her head on Ha-neul’s hospital bed, and he reaches over to stroke her hair, but he stops himself. He does put his hand over hers, gently enough not to wake her, and lies there watching her sleep.

The next day Seok-ho sits to compose another article offering more details of the day of Ha-neul’s incident. Man-shik calls to summon him to… something, with the rest of the band as well.

Min-joo is upset that it means Yeon-soo will miss an event at Chan-hee’s school, and gets all squirmy when Man-shik tells her to go instead: “I’m not his mom!” The way little Chan-hee has been calling her pretty and favoring her lately makes her nervous.

Geu-rin and the boys release Ha-neul from the hospital and head to whatever Man-shik has planned — aww, it’s their very first fan meeting, and the auditorium is packed! Mr. Byun and Man-shik are beaming, while Ha-neul looks so touched he could cry.

When he’s asked to say a few words, Ha-neul lets himself be vulnerable, and confesses that he just came from the hospital. He says that he was very worried, because even though they’re cheering for him, he’s a tainted person. He’s scared that if he can’t prove his innocence, nobody will stand by him, or listen to their music.

His lip quivers as the fans start to chant, “It’s okay! Don’t cry!” and there’s not a dry eye in the house. Seok-ho is moved as well, though he notices a girl in the back of the auditorium who looks sad, and she turns to leave.

Min-joo picks up Chan-hee at his school event and brings him to the fan meeting. She doesn’t look happy to ask him not to say “Daddy” out loud, but he already knows, and smiles that he’ll just say it with his eyes. The sad girl happens to see them and stares at Chan-hee when Min-joo says his name… is she his mother? Crying now, she follows him.

Out on the stage, a fan asks Yeon-soo if he has a girlfriend, and he says shyly that he doesn’t. He does say that he’s dated before, just as Min-joo, Chan-hee, and the sad girl come out into the audience. Yeon-soo is asked to describe the girl, and his answer makes the sad girl take her eyes off Chan-hee and pay attention.

He says she was nice, and too good to be true. He continues that he wanted to marry the girl he was with, but he was too poor and not good at expressing his love. He wanted to do everything for her after becoming successful, but he waited too long and couldn’t stop her from leaving.

But Yeon-soo says that she left him a gift, and at that, Seok-ho gives him a small nod. “I have a little son,” he says, and calls Chan-hee up on the stage. Chan-hee runs to his daddy, and the audience, though surprised, show their approval. Seok-ho can’t help but tear up again in pride, and the sad girl quickly leaves before anyone sees her.

After the fan meet, Kyle makes faces like he reeeeally wants to say something to Yeon-soo, and Ha-neul finally tells him to spit it out. Even Yeon-soo says he’d feel better if Kyle just cursed at him, ha.

But Kyle only gripes that raising a child isn’t something to be cursed over, and Yeon-soo blinks in confusion at this turnaround. Then Kyle hugs Chan-hee, and starts to hug Yeon-soo… and realizes what a weirdo he’s being and leaves. Pfft. Yeon-soo really is worried that he screwed up and took over Ha-neul’s spotlight, but Ha-neul is actually glad the focus was taken off of himself for a bit.

Seok-ho decides to have a press conference to just get all the secrets out, and show that they’re doing everything they can to clear Ha-neul’s name. Mr. Byun agrees, knowing that people are most likely to believe whatever they hear first, so they need to put out the truth that he was framed as soon as possible.

Min-joo and Geu-rin prepare the boys for the press conference, and the fact that until Ha-neul’s name is cleared, they may not be able to perform. In the meantime they can practice their new song, and do their best to stay healthy.

Min-joo gasps dramatically at the baby abs that Chan-hee flashes when she talks about working out, and Yeon-soo goes all googly-eyed, seeing her with his little boy. He follows her out to thank her for taking care of Chan-hee today, and tells her that someday, she’ll make a great mom. In turn she praises him for telling the fans about his son today.

Jinu did send that video to himself, and he watches it over and over, focusing on the person behind the camera’s shoes. They’re a special edition that he gave to Joo-han as a gift, which means he knows exactly who took that video.

Seok-ho calls him to tell him about the press conference the next day, and reassure him that they’re only telling Ha-neul’s side. They won’t out Jinu, but he says he wants to resolve this quickly, for Ha-neul and for Jinu. Jinu watches the video again, and seems to make a decision.

The next day Jinu crashes the press conference, creating a stir. He actually looks better than he has in ages, and tells Seok-ho it’s okay, and takes the microphone to announce that Ha-neul is innocent. Seok-ho jumps in front of Jinu and tries to stop him, but Jinu nods at him and just says a comforting, “Hyung.”

KTOP is actually holding a press conference at the same time, to apologize for the confusion surrounding Ji-young (whom they refer to as Miss A). Joo-han tells the trumped-up story that she was already a trainee at KTOP at the time of her assault, and that she framed Ha-neul in order to protect Jinu.

They make her sound all innocent and fragile, claiming that she’s been in therapy since the incident and that when Ha-neul’s story went public, she just felt so bad that she begged KTOP for help in telling the truth. Joo-han throws Jinu under the bus, naming him as the true attacker… though in his defense, he doesn’t seem happy about it.

KTOP’s press conference goes out before Jinu has the chance to tell his story, but he takes it in stride and states that yes, he was there at the scene of the crime. He admits that he was inebriated and doesn’t remember much, but he knows that Ha-neul tried to stop things and was attacked himself.

Jinu has the proof in the from of the video, though Seok-ho again tries to stop him. Still with that serene determination, Jinu says that this is the only way he can go on living, and plays the video.

Jinu tells the reporter that it’s him in the video, and that he’s not making any excuses for himself. He was so drunk he couldn’t make good judgements, and that he tried to harm another person. He accepts that he should be punished, but his main concern is that they understand Ha-neul didn’t do it.

He goes on to say that he wishes he could remember exactly what happened that day, because of the shoes they see in the video. That person was there, and recorded everything, and didn’t try to stop anything that was happening.

Seok-ho pulls Jinu aside after the press conference to ask what he’s doing, and Jinu says the truth would have come out eventually. He wanted to confess first, but CEO Lee beat him to it.

Seok-ho wants to know about the video, and Jinu tells him he got it from Joo-han, who said he got it from Ji-young, and used it to control Jinu. But the shoes in the video, he says, are Joo-han’s.

He says he didn’t tell Seok-ho his plan earlier because he knew he’d try to stop him, that Seok-ho wouldn’t be able to let him do it, but he says he’s okay. He asks Seok-ho to apologize to Ha-neul for him, and asks for a hug, which Seok-ho easily gives.

Seok-ho asks Jinu to wait, and he’ll make Joo-han confess. He’ll expose everything, he swears, and begs Jinu not to do anything he can’t take back. Jinu is struggling, but he tells Seok-ho that he trusts him.

When Ddanddara Band finds out about Jinu’s confession, they’re stunned — at least now they know why KTOP has been trying so hard to ruin them. Seok-ho praises them for their loyalty to each other, and promises it’s uphill from here. Ha-neul is worried about Jinu, and Seok-ho says that he has to save him, too.

Later that night, Geu-rin asks Ha-neul if he knew Jinu was the real culprit, and he lies that he didn’t. Geu-rin is furious with Ji-young for lying to get into KTOP, but Geu-rin reminds her that Ji-young isn’t the real problem — someone set this up on purpose. He says that Jinu is a victim too, and they have to figure out who’s behind it.

Geu-rin suddenly understands why Seok-ho drew himself walking in a downpour, and she has a million questions for him, but Ha-neul tells her to leave him alone. He’s still worried about Jinu, and has enough on his plate. She agrees, but swears that when this is all over, she’s still going to make sure Ji-young begs for forgiveness.

CEO Lee is predictably furious that the video got to the press, and warns Joo-han that he and Ji-young will be the next targets.

Awww, Jinu is eating Seok-ho’s signature caramels when Seok-ho calls him that night, and he’s happy to report that he can sleep for the first time in a long time. Seok-ho knows the war isn’t over yet, and he swears to make Joo-han pay and clear Jinu’s name as well.

He takes some strength from his picture that Geu-rin drew the green umbrella on, then heads out to go home. It’s pouring down rain, but suddenly a real green umbrella appears to shelter him from the rain. It’s Geu-rin, here to be his umbrella just as she promised.

She thanks Seok-ho for proving Ha-neul’s innocence, though he gives Jinu the credit. He asks her to buy him a drink if she’s that thankful, and they take off. Behind them, Ha-neul watches them go, sheltered under the umbrella together while he stands out in the rain alone.

COMMENTS

I really have no idea where this love triangle is going, though with this episode, for the first time I find myself actually caring. Both Seok-ho and Ha-neul could arguably qualify as leading-man material, and I can see the romance going either way at this point. I don’t know exactly what changed, but Geu-rin seems more mature suddenly, which makes me able to see her ending up with Seok-ho much more easily. On the other hand, I just want Ha-neul to get the girl so badly, and he’s loved her for so long and they’ve been a family for so many years, it feels almost like he deserves to be with her. Not that Geu-rin is a prize to be won, and it’s not a contest, but if there has to be a love story (and I’m still not convinced this show needs one, but it looks like we’re getting one regardless) then I’m still rooting for Ha-neul. I will admit though, the show is making a strong case for her to fall for Seok-ho… and maybe it’s Geu-rin’s newfound maturity, but this is the first time I’ve felt like they’ve had some real chemistry that didn’t feel forced.

I really love how each member of Ddanddara Band has such a rich and interesting life story, and how the show allows each of them to shine in their own time. Whatever weaknesses it has, one thing Entertainer does well is make its characters complete and interesting, and you really feel as though we’re just peeking into a part of their lives, which existed before and will go on after this story is over. Though he’s spent a lot of time flying under the radar, Yeon-soo is one of my favorite drama characters right now, and I’ve been curious if we’d get to know more about his background and whether Chan-hee’s mother would show back up. I should have known the show wouldn’t let his story stay surface-thin, though the introduction of Chan-hee’s mother (almost certainly anyway) in this episode still came as a pleasant surprise. Yeon-soo has shown that he regrets how things went between them and blames himself, but I liked seeing that she also seems to have unresolved feelings. I do hope she shows up again, and that we get to learn more about her side of things… regardless of Yeon-soo dragging his feet about marrying her, why would she leave the man she had a baby with, and why would she leave the baby as well? At this point I trust the show to give us resolution one way or another, in its own good time.

I’m also happy that the real truth, the whole story is finally out, for both Ha-neul’s and Jinu’s sakes. Ha-neul has done a better job of holding it together, but he and Jinu both have been in danger of breaking down for a while now, Jinu especially. It’s true that the truth will set you free, and that’s proven by Jinu’s expression when he comes to Ddanddara Band’s press conference — just having decided to tell the whole story seemed to have caused quite a bit of healing already, for him. He wasn’t in too good of shape before all this happened, and having the weight of this secret bearing down on him, plus I’m sure the guilt of knowing that an innocent man was paying for his mistake had to be excruciating. I’m glad that he found the strength to admit his own responsibility in his bad judgement, and take charge of the situation, and point the finger at the true culprit — the person who stood by, recorded everything, and did nothing.

But the real truth is that both boys are, if not completely innocent in Jinu’s case, at the very least not ultimately responsible for what happened that night. Clearly this was a scheme cooked up by KTOP, Joo-han, and Ji-young, though I’m still fuzzy on the exact reasons why other than “to get Seok-ho.” I think there’s still more to be revealed regarding the details of the plan, and I have no doubt that CEO Lee is at the very bottom of it. He still strikes me as unstable and unreasonable, so I don’t expect his motivation to carry too much logic, but I’m still interested to learn the all the details of Ha-neul’s brother’s death and how it relates to current events. CEO Lee has a lot to answer for, for the lives that he’s ruined, and those that he’s still trying to ruin.

I love that Jinu finally stepped up and said what he thought really happened that night. He is such a fragile person, so his confession gives me hope that he won't...off himself (although his struggle has definitely made the drama very life-like and interesting).

I like that they are kind of teaching a lesson to us all about how our negativity can REALLY injure other people.

Lastly, I still feel like the leads' romance is forced. I can see some chemistry from HaNeul, but that is about it. I don't really see the other couple's chemistry at this point. I just feel like it is being forced upon us.

Other than that, great episode!

:)

I was so worried a few episodes ago that Jinu wasn't going to make it to the end of the show. I really thought Seok-ho was gonna end up crying at his funeral. It was bad--I'm so relieved he's doing better.

right on about jinu. i do agree, im just not feeling the lead romance but im also not that into ha-neul and green even though they have more chemistry then the lead . i think they should just scrapped the romance or just did green and neul instead. better yet i think i prefer MJ and yeon soo, just from the last two eps, im not sure if they will do it but i really like that pairing.

i think the main romance is the only draw back other then that the eps have been good

When Jinu asked Seok Ho for that hug... dang, that made me cry. I had wanted to see them hug so badly and then they did.

I was worried about Jinu, wondering if he would hurt himself over his guilt and the whole scandal. Can't wait to see Seok Ho reveal the whole ugly truth behind KTOP and save Jinu too.

Seok Ho coming through for his kids is really the soul of the show. Ji Sung is absolutely selling that he is a reliable refuge for them in a really crappy industry - which is a little odd considering he started off the show as a conman, but Seok Ho now seems like a guy who will weather all storms to protect his singers and who will go out of his way to emotionally help those not under his care anymore.

I'm glad Geu Rin has started to seem less immature. I'm not sure that's exactly made her mature, but I'm not quite as wary of the pairing.

It almost seems like ji sung can take an bizarre script and bring a new meaning to it.... (though Its a team effort )
I really like the premises of exploring every band members story and soek-ho's situation between the two guys and brother's mystery... Seriously who needs romance when bromance is top notch..
Jinu shined the most in this episode.. Its really hard to step up and accept your faults risking every thing you have...

Kudos to Jinu for manning up to confess his part in the whole fiasco. Now he won't look too bad, though he too was a victim as well. I'm glad Suk ho stood by him and gave him a talking to not to do anything stupid. When one hits rock bottom it's good to have friends on one's side. And someone who can actually fight for you and accomplish some measure of justice is an unexpected bonus.

Still ambivalent about the romance portion, I wish they'd do away with it completely. It feels more scripted than organic, especially Seok ho with Geu rin for all her newly exhibited maturity.

I wonder what the deal with Chan hee's mother is? Hope it's not some tragic story. It seems odd that she's suddenly showing up at the fan meeting.

For the first time in this show, I'm able to really see why the writer is putting Seok Ho & Geu Rin together. Im glad they've started to develop her character more and now she's a good match for Seok Ho. They both seem to be what the other needs and it's pretty clear he just needs someone who can be there for him. Geu Rin also needs the same which he's shown to do. Ha Neul seems more like a brother to her and I feel like that's all he'll ever be even if he does confess.

Although yes, the GR and SH scenes are looking forced.. If you really analyse the situation/ their characters, those two really seem to be what each other needs. SH who's always looking out for his clients needs someone to also look out for him, and GR seems to be the perfect one. In GR case... I can't really stop thinking that if she's with HN.. she can't really stop looking out for him.. I mean, she'll always be the little brother that she has to look out for. And maybe, even though HN is trying his best to take care of GR, she still won't get to see HN as a man, not a younger brother. That's why I think, the perfect one to look out for GR as well, is SH.

^ That's just if you analyse their needs as a character. But still, I'm still all for a no love line ending for this drama. :))))

This episode had me almost crying (huhuhu!). The scene after Jinu confessed, the one where he asked SH for a hug. </3 It really broke my heart. I could feel how broken he felt for a long time. I love how this show can really show how SH is like a hyung to both Jinu and HN. Poor boy, I think it's nice that he finally cracked in front of SH and how he's giving his trust to him. Oh and yeah, kudos also. Jinu finally used his head!! XD (When he sent the video and when he confessed XD) And I loved the fact that the weight he's bearing is finally down. And anyone else love the background music on some scenes? (especially the background music when SH called Jinu?) Aaaaaand yesssss. Jinu looks really well in this episode ♥♥♥ So much love!!!! Aaaaack~ More Jinu scenes like this pleaseeee

LOL IS THE STORY TRYING TO SELL A MIN JOO AND YS PAIR??? Lol it's not like I'm wanting them to end up but lol I think they're kinda cute X)))) YS is such a love sick little puppy XD

JAEHOON'S CHARACTER IS GETTING ADORABLE WITH EACH EPISODE~ AAAACK!!! But wait, I kind of hate how his case was just suddenly put aside... Isn't his case not yet really resolved???

Also... it makes me mad how Jiyoung has all the guts to even text Ha Neul that the one being destroyed is him, not her. I mean, she herself knows that she's also a culprit but nooo, she's so proud that she can still tell HN that (even though she knows he's innocent) he's the one being destroyed. I really question their friendship... How fake of a friend can JY be???

HAHAHAHHA AND OMG!!!!! I SO LOVE THE SCENE AFTER THEIR FAN MEETING!!!!! Kyle was just soooooo cute!!! HAHHAAAHAH Suddenly hugging CH and then moving to hug YS!!!! And love how JaeHoon is so sarcastic when it comes to Kyle, but when something interests him he becomes so eager like a beagle XD I think in the band, the most childish is a tie b/w Jaehoon and Kyle XD

Kekekekeke, anyway~ Bang Geul~ ♥ Let's smile! Entertainer, hwaiting!! XD

Not gonna lie, I officially have a budding crush on Jinu. I was really happy to see him speak up and try to make amends. Hiding the truth wears a person down so quickly, it was good to see him let go of the weight. And can I just say daaaaang boy--you're tall! (6'1.5", I checked :) )

I know a lot of people really like Geu Rin and Ha Neul together, and I respect that--I wouldn't totally die if they did end up together... but my little shipper heart is still rooting for Seok ho and her. They both mother hen the band so much and manage to see the sides the others don't often mange to--beyond the invincible Hyung or the clueless, hardworking noona.

I love how seamlessly the show shifts focus from one member of the band to another. Ha-neul is breaking our hearts one moment with his hospital stay and getting us all teary eyed at the fan meeting (our fan meeting--let's be real, I totally would've gone if I could), and then we start to worry about Yeon-soo and his ex... it's just great. Kudos, show.

Other than that, I can only crack up about Kyle's hugging instincts. You're really not helping yourself, sitting there staring into Yeon-soo's eyes like that. ;) Thanks, LollyPip! @Kae, ~Bang Geul~ :) :) ^^

Heeee yess! Jinu fans, indeed.

And all of little looks! It's part of what endears the band to me--they have all the little facial conversations close friends have (if that makes sense? Maybe it's just me who does that across a crowded classroom/meeting).

Yay! Jinu fans in the house. That boy is absolutely adorably awesome, I can't even... Glad to see he's got that weight off his chest. Keep smiling you gorgeous Jinu you. Everything will work out well. And who knows, maybe you and Hanuel will become the best of friends. Trust me, you need friends and Hanuel, Hanuel needs to get Ji Young replaced.

In case if you are a fan of the actor plays Jinu, he is currently working on a weekends drama called A Happy Family. Currently they are roughly 25th eps out of 50 eps. His role is a bit mysterious: a helper who works at a Chinese restaurant with a female chef( who recently got divorced from the owner's stupid son). Since the female chef is basically kicked out from the household, he decided to go with her to open her restaurant. We cannot tell if he likes her( she is much older than he) or she is his lost sister or something. He does not have much time presence in the drama but he peeks our interest since we are not sure who he is and the reason he started working in the restaurant and why he decided to stay with a female worker. If the show decided to go into a direction of 'Noona' romance, he could be a new Noona puppy Prince.

I'm with you... Definitely feeling the flutters for Jinu. I was so proud of him! He finally stood up for himself and the truth instead of sitting on the sidelines. And Ha Neul... I have so much love for his character and my heart really broke for him this episode. I am glad he has this huge weight off of his back. Now, all I want to see is his gorgeous smile!

I definitely could see Geurin and Seok Ho together after this episode. I really love how more mature she seemed. While I also don't think romance is needed, I would prefer for it to NOT be a love triangle. I hate love triangles.

What I want is for Ha Neul to realize he only loves Geurin in a sisterly way and move on. I can really see how the writers are going to use this love triangle to cause conflict between Seok Ho and Ha Neul and I say Bromance before romance!

This really felt like a pivotal episode, with Jinu confessing (hooray! Now we can really go after the true criminals, those KTOP bozos), Geu-rin seeming more mature than before (her hair was different finally, and it totally helped), and the band dealing with not one but two scandals (I will say that it was a very nice expected "twist" to have Chan-hee's mother show up. Wonder what her deal is).

Entertainer had a rocky start; I almost dropped it after the lackluster first episode, but now it's proven it has a lot of heart and a story and characters I actually really care about.

Parting words: I'm not really on board the Geu-rin/Suk-ho ship yet, though the umbrella scene was adorable. I like the thought of Geu-rin and Hanneul together, but I agree that she probably will always see him as her little brother. Sigh.

On to episode 12...!

Isn't the umbrella scene a good sign for puppy noona romance? It worked for Park Su-ha ! lol

I can see Hyeri slowly getting better as an actress over the course of this series. I suspect there's a good behind-the-scenes story about the "Entertainer," as a group of young idols just starting their careers learn the drama craft from an old pro like Ji Sung.

Perhaps by the end of the series, Hyeri will have learned enough to convince me her character is an adult. But in the meantime, Hyeri still makes the world's weirdest love interest! I want to believe. But I can't.

I keep tuning in, though, partly to find out how absurb this love triangle can get, and partly because the guys are so cute. There were some nice surprises this episode: the appearance from Chan-Hee's mom, Yeon-Soo's crush on Min-Joo, and Jin Woo stepping up with dignity to take the blame.

It's too bad the love triangle is so bad that it actually makes me uncomfortable to watch.

If Hyeri learns from Ji Sung how to portray a person in love, this drama will be the best professional choice she's made for a long-term career. I'm surprised how much she seems to have improved in just a couple of episodes - I remember reading somewhere that she said Ji Sung told her to look directly into his eyes when acting, and that that had helped a lot. And I think it's showing here - she's not doing little twitchy tricks anymore, like pouting or sighing, she's acting more from her center.

Yeon-Soo started off for me as a weird, grinning nothing, but he is quickly gaining ground. His bond with the little boy playing his son is great, too.

Ji Sung really knows how to act like he is in love, the look he gives from his eyes is so hot and cute. I know he is an excellent actor, but still he always manages to make me surprise.

I'm glad that her name is geurin instead of yellow/amber (or whatever name that indicate the color)
Like there are already too much dramas (from american himym to lots of kdramas) using yellow umbrella in romantic scene that im thinking of buying one and go to some ramdom park on a rainy day while wearing some red knitted dress.

Thank God for green. Its fresh.

I have always felt a little uncomfortable about the developing relationship between Seok Ho and Geu Rin. Something has always felt off. On a whim I looked up both of their actual ages. He is 39 and she is 21. He could almost be her father, there is almost a twenty year gap. Seok Ho (Ji Sung) plays a very youthful character, but Geu Rin (Lee Hye Ri) does not cover her side of this huge gap. Knowing their actual ages has kind of creeped me out, but you can not unring a bell. She just seems too young to be in a relationship with him.

Thanks for the recap, LollyPip!

So many touching and pivotal moments in this ep! I love how the band members are so loyal and supportive. My heart broke for Haneul when he was sharing honestly on stage about his fears. The fanmeeting was a brilliant idea. I love how Yeonsoo didn't hide the fact that he's a dad and showed Chanhee to his fans. I'm curious to find out more after the ex-gf as well. Kyle hugging Chanhee and attempting to hug Yeonsoo was the best thing ever!! XD

Jinu confessing! So proud of him to finally have enough courage to confess that Haneul was not the culprit. That hug with Seokho was a tearjerker. I'm so glad the weight has lifted off Jinu's shoulders and he can finally set himself free from KTop's threats.

Jiyoung's text to Haneul was so unnecessary: I'm sure she'll be eating those words soon.

Now that we have more of a back story for what happened with Haneul's hyung, I can't wait for the truth to be unravelled.

Am I the lone beanie that ships SH and GR. Say it ain't so. GR is growing before our eyes. SH needs his Green umbrella and GR needs SH as well. Before SH, she was doing multiple part time jobs trying to take care do HN. SH has broken her out of her cocoon and turned her into a butterfly. Figuratively speaking. He has pushed her to be a better manager and she has brought his innocence back. ??

@CB, have you seen ep 12 yet? SH and GR look good together and it's adorable. GR and HN look more like sibling so not sure why 99% of Kdrama watchers ship those two.

Ikr? Ji Sung's acting of being in love feels more real than Minhyuk's.

Am I the only one that laughed at Chan Hee and Yeon-soo's faces after Kyle was giving out hugs. Chan Hee looked so uncomfortable . That child actor is really talented. Can't wait for the recap of the 12th episode and can't wait to read the discussions in the comment section.

gahhhhhh love this episode
first Jinu i love him, and i'm so proud for him
kyle is cute as always
to me yeon soo is the best looking of the ddanddara boys, he and chan hee are so cute together
geu rin and ha neul are to me a big no... she just looks him as a brother, no chemistry from her at all... it's just ha neul and his one sided love
geu rin and seok ho is a big yes to me... because she is getting better and he looks totally the part... plus they're like ddandara parents, so adorable together... the umbrella scene makes me swoon. love them together... but to speak the truth i love ji sung with every one
btw i'm having problems with how good looking and hot ji sung is.. that withe t-shirts, his hair style, the look in his eyes... i keep repeating his scenes
lastly i must say how happy i am that mr. byun is playing a good guy! love his character... i love the actor in awl and after kmhm he left me with a bittersweet taste of what could have happened if he didnt return to his mother's home (he also played the bad guy with ji sung in swallow the sun, so i guess they must know each other well)

I really can't feel Geu Rin with anybody because for some reason she does not come off as somebody even remotely attracted to either Seuk Ho nor Ha Neul. And I think I'll be happy without any romance in this story.

But since it's already there, at the start I really wanted Geu rin to end with Ha Neul if only because I felt he would be hurt the most if they didn't. And Min Hyuk is delivering on the chemistry. But Ji Sung, my God, that guy can act. Now that the writer has Seuk Ho committing to his feelings, Ji Sung can sell this romance to me on his facial expressions alone.

Part of me wishes that they had another actress for the role of Geu Rin. Hyeri is not bad in any of the other parts of the drama except for the romance aspect. Which baffles me completely. How can any woman not feel any sort of attraction to either Ji Sung or Min Hyuk and not have that reflected in their acting.
