Eun-Gyeol comes in the room and finds Jae-Hee and Tae-Joon in bed together, everyone is completely shocked and this is how the episode ends.

In this episode I find it so unfair that Jae-Hee has everyone fallen in love with her! I mean three guys are all fighting over her!! even one thinks that she is a guy and he still would go out with her as a boy!! I love that Eun-Gyeol got a haircut because at first I really didn’t like his hair but it did grow on me!! omo the photo shoot with Tae-Joon without his shirt on !! and again Jae-Hee is sick/ hurt it has happened a bit too often in this series!! I get it that it is so attractive to have a male take care of you when you are sick but it seems to happen in every episode that she needs to be saved or she is sick and needs someone to help her. Korean dramas they are the boss of flashbacks!! It is like a mini music video when Tae-Joon relives the moments of him and Jae-Hee!! Anyway the next episode should be out and I will have to move onto the next video now!!
