Tae-Joon explains that since his mom was always in the hospital he learned to cook in kindergarten, Jae-Hee exclaims and he says that was a lie. Jae-Hee makes a squash face and says its Tae-Joon and then he makes a much more impressive face on a vegetable and says its Jae-Hee. She disagrees and tries to grab it but it drops into the soup.

Everyone is sitting down to eat and Seung-Ri is amazed that Jae-Hee had made all the food herself. Jong-Min says that it probably won’t taste good though and that she probably used a lot of msg. Everyone digs in and says it tastes good Jae-Hee starts to say that Tae-Joon helped her but he stops her. Jong-Min pulls out the potato with Jae-Hee’s face and everyone says it looks like a face.

He grabs her and tells her that he thinks he likes her and that he is going to test it out because lips don’t lie. Eun-Gyeol is in his tent and he has imagined that this might happen but then says that men are not like that. Eun-Gyeol is sleeping in the Coach’s tent and he decides to sleep outside so he goes out in his sleeping bag.

Jae-Hee is in her tent and she is flash backing to earlier that day of Tae-Joon. They are lying in the tent together and they are both having a hard time falling asleep. She asks him if he knows what s’mores are and explains that in America thats what they make when they go camping and that because they taste so good people would ask for some more which turned into s’more. She asks if he would like it if she made some for him and he says he doesn’t know since she is not good at cooking. She says that she can make other stuff but isn’t good at Korean food. They then turn over to their sides to go to sleep.

Eun-Gyeol is moving like a caterpillar in his sleeping bag outside when Seung-Ri runs into him and tells him to go back to his tent. He then says that instead he could get some exercise with him and gives him 5 seconds to get back into his tent and he struggles getting back to his tent.

Jong-Min sees this and fakes his arm hurting so Eun-Gyeol feeds him a spoon of rice, Jong-Min yells about him only getting rice and therefore sprays everyone with rice.

Everyone is sitting in a circle and Eun-Gyeol tells them that there is a meteor shower tonight and Jong-Min wants to go with him. Seung-Ri complains that they have nothing better to watch and Jong-Min says that why he doesn’t have a girlfriend because he is not romantic enough. Jae-Hee asks him what type of girl he likes and he says she needs to be feminine, elegant, calm personality and that he hates bratty selfish girls. He tells them to sleep because there is only an hour for a nap so they all go to sleep in their chairs.

Tae-Joon opens the tent and finds Jae-Hee changing her shirt, he quickly zips it back up and he tells her to be careful he could be teased. She tells him about the meteor shower and says she is scared to go by herself and he says they should go and that she can make s’mores too.

In the evening Seung-Ri tells Tae-Joon that he needs his help for the training schedule for tomorrow he agrees he will go to his tent for a little bit. Tae-Joon then goes into his tent and Jae-Hee is packing stuff and he says that she can go first because he has to help Seung-Ri first and she agrees. Tae-Joon says they will meet at the stage in half an hour. Tae-Joon then gives her his jacket because she didn’t bring much because it gets very cold.

Jae-Hee made a fire and started making the s’mores and pulls out her phone. Ha-Na then tells Tae-Joon that his dad already registered him at a school and that she is going to follow him there. He tells her that this won’t happen and that even though she came here she can go back now. She asks him to come back to Seoul with her and he tells her that he is at a training camp. Jae-Hee is still waiting and Eun-Gyeol finds her and sits with her. Tae-Joon is packed and going to the car with Ha-Na and then he phones Jae-Hee, she says its okay and there is nothing they can do. Eun-Gyeol then asks what the s’mores are and she says that when she was little someone she liked introduced them to her. Eun-Gyeol and her eat them and he says they are really good, he sees a crumb on her lip and helps take it off with his finger. Eun-Gyeol says he has something he needs to tell her and this is the end of the eighth episode.

This was a very entertaining episode!! I loved the action sequence of Tae-Joon paint-balling very cool!! lol Tae-Joon going to Canada!! too funny yes come to Canada Tae-Joon I will come visit you then!!  There was just soo much happening in the episode Eun-Gyeol being a caterpillar, Seung-Ri explaining his ideal girl, s’mores and I enjoyed everything! Jae-Hee is binding her chest too tight and therefore she may have to leave soon!! poor Eun-Gyeol he is still so confused over why he is attracted to a boy and even dumps his girlfriend for Jae-Hee. Tae-Joon how sweet is he that he knows she is a girl and he still wants her to stick around and protects her to the best of his ability. I find all the character so likable and have really enjoyed this weeks episodes.
