In the second episode of High School Love On Seul-Bi is going in front of a truck becomes she wants to be an angel again and Hyun-Woo saves her. He takes her back to his house. Sung-Yeol is with his stepmother and drops his cup and it breaks she tells him to clean it up and she pushes her down and she cuts her hand on the glass. In the morning Hyun-Woo has decided to transfer schools and Seul-Bi is wearing his old uniform that he threw away. Grandma gives them money for him to buy a new uniform and for her to get some new clothes. At the store when he buys his uniform she also chooses a school uniform.

Picture 1

Sung-Yeol is celebrating his birthday with his dad and stepmom and as they are leaving a guy steals his stepmom’s bag. His dad who is a police officer runs after him and Hyun-Woo and Seul-Bi are walking by and she starts chasing him as well. Hyun-Woo finds him and they fight for awhile when the guy grabs a large piece of wood and Seul-Bi uses her power to get it out of his hands.

Picture 2

The dad catches up and puts him in handcuffs, Sung-Yeol had also chased after and catches Seul-Bi as she is fainting. Hyun-Woo gives Seul-Bi a piggyback and he commends her for trying to help.

 

Picture 3

Seul-Bi gets a visit from her angel friend and he gives her all the documents she needs to live as a human. Grandma is taking some pills and Seul-Bi walks in and she hides them. She asks her if she likes Hyun-Woo and she agrees she does because she doesn’t want to explain that she wants to get to know him to figure out why she turned human. 

Picture 4

Hyun-Woo is late for school because Seul-Bi damaged the clock and has to do pushups and run laps because he is late. He is in the same school and class as Hyun-Woo and the class make him sing a song after the introduction. Hyun-Woo sits next to Chun-Shik and the gang from his class who were also late bully Chun-Shik because they have a tradition where whoever sits next to a new student has to do an orientation. Hyun-Woo goes to the bathroom to help Chun-Shik and then Sung-Yeol stops the guys and makes them leave.

Picture 5

Sung-Yeol gets a text from his real mom saying she can’t come for his birthday. Sung-Yeol’s stepmom is teaching and him and Hyun-Woo get kicked out of class for being late. Sung-Yeol starts punching Hyun-Woo and the stepmom comes out and Sung-Yeol asks if his mom has to come and that she is busy and the stepmom slaps him.

Picture 6

Hyun-Woo and Sung-Yeol have to run laps and Sung-Yeol tells him that he can punch him and he does. Seul-Bi is working at the grandmother’s restaurant and answers the question right on the quiz show on tv and a girl from Hyun-Woo’s school test her knowledge with her homework and she gets them right. Grandmother tells Hyun-Woo that she thinks Seul-Bi should go to school and Hyun-Woo doesn’t want her to go to his. The stepmom is happy about her purse being found because she kept some necklace with a lock on it that is special to her. 

Picture 7

She tries to give Sung-Yeol a cake and present and he just insults her and she leaves. At school some girl tries to convince Hyun-Woo to join her club and he turns her down. Hyun-Woo while getting ready for swimming overhears the leader of the gang talking on the phone with someone and gets mad at him for hearing it.

Picture 8

Hyun-Woo makes excuse not to swim and has to clean up instead. The leader of the gang takes Hyun-Woo’s clothes and gets them wet in the sink. Hyun-Woo phones the restaurant and tells Seul-Bi to bring him some new clothes. The leader of the gang starts harassing Hyun-Woo while he is cleaning up and knocks him into the water. Hyun-Woo struggles in the water and flashbacks to him as a kid not being able to swim in the water and his mom isn’t watching him. Hyun-Woo struggles and the leader walks out. The episode ends with Hyun-Woo still underwater.

Picture 10

So I was expecting that Hyun-Woo and Sung-Yeol would have recognized each other from before the purse incident but they don’t seem too and I was thinking they disliked each other but Sung-Yeol saved him and even was apologizing for punching him. I feel that Sung-Yeol is really unnecessarily mean to his step-mom, I mean he must really hate her but she doesn’t even seem that mean! especially for a stepmom since they are usually the ones who are more abusive. I mean I get hating her for replacing his mom and her trying to suck up to him all the time but to throw her on the broken glass was a bit much! The stepmom seems to have a lock on her necklace and I am wondering if Hyun-Woo’s is the key to the necklace! I wonder what there connection is? is she his mother? but that doesn’t seem right? I think that Seul-Bi will come and save Hyun-Woo so he doesn’t drown and she will probably use her powers! It also seems like grandmother is ill and she is keeping it from Hyun-Woo! I like her I hope she doesn’t die!! It was so cute when Sung-Yeol asked Hyun-Woo about Seul-Bi!! They would be so cute together!! I am starting to enjoy this drama more and more!! How about everyone else, what do you think about this series so far??

Oh my!! this episode made me so emotional! I did not expect that a beginning of a drama could be this sad! Aren’t they supposed to save it for the end of the drama? I guess if they do it now maybe the ending will be less emotional?? Do-Young is soo sweet with her and I was soo happy when she wanted to adopt her! I was rooting for the 2 of them to end up together. I can understand how Kyung-Hee feels a bit since her parents are not very sensible and everyone in the family is struggling because of them and then they bring in another child how angry she must feel. Then the girl gets to become rich so I understand where she is coming from but doesn’t excuse her behavior or anyone else’s in the family.  As soon as the good things were happening to her I just felt like it is going to come crashing down soon because it is too early in the drama for their to already be a happy ending! then the car crash happened!! and it sucks again for Jung-Soo guessing from the next episode preview!! I am really getting sucked into this drama and I am finding it fun to watch!!

That she feels a twinge of regret.

Picture 13

Picture 14

Mizuho is walking down the school hall and sees and hears Hikaru and a girl talking and she asks him if she can come over and he tells her that his house is being remodeled. Mizuho walks fast past them and she asks when it will be over and he says he doesn’t know.

Mizuho and Hikaru are in bed and he puts his pillow close to hers and says that lately he has trouble sleeping without her, she smiles and they snuggle together. Mizuho is about to talk to him but realizes he is sleeping. She thinks that that she can’t help but want to be spoiled by Hikaru and she wonders if he will accept everything about her and that is how the second episode ends.
Picture 15

I find this episode very intriguing but it sure didn’t focus on Haruka very much or really go back to the funeral in the present day. It focused more on Hikaru and Mizuho’s relationship that is undefined. I mean Mizuho doesn’t want to allow herself to fall in love with Hikaru because he is a womanizer and she doesn’t want to be just one of the girls in his long line up of women. Hikaru seems really childish just wanting to do be physical with her and test her out like every woman he comes in contact with. He obviously has issues with his mother which means also with other woman almost a self-fulfilling prophecy. His mother left him therefore he will treat woman badly and they will leave him again therefore proving to himself that he was right. Mizuho is smart and doesn’t let him get what he wants all the time because she realizes that she wants to be treated differently and wants to just be around him because she likes him beyond his looks. She is intrigued by not just his looks but who he is and what makes him tick. I am not sure how Haruka is going to be at the center of the story but I guess I will have to keep watching to figure it out!!

In episode 2 Jae-Hee is in the doctors office and is trying to convince the doctor that she is not a girl and leaves as quick as she can.

 Tae-Joon is talking to his manager and he tells her its okay that he missed his jump and that he didn’t want to always be an athlete. Tae-Joon’s father comes to the school and slaps his face thinking that Tae-Joon missed the jump on purpose and Tae-Joon tells him that he will decide what he does.

Tae-Joon allows Jae-Hee to stay in the dorm room as long as she follows his rules and is aware that he is the owner of the room. Tae-Joon dreams about his mother and her funeral and grabs Jae-Hee’s hand while he sleeps and thinks its his mother.


In the morning Eun-Gyeol and Seung-Ri come in to Jae-Hee’s bathroom and use it in front of her which causes her to freak out.

The dorm sport competition is coming up and Tae-Joon won’t be in the high-jump competition and the winning dorm gets to use the central store which is nicer and the other dorms have to use the store in the annex.

Seol Han-Na is a rhythmic gymnast who wants to marry Tae-Joon and dresses herself up as a present in Tae-Joon’s dorm room she tells Jae-Hee that she is Tae-Joon’s girlfriend.

Jong-Min and Jae-Hee practice running for the competition and Jong-Min trips Jae-Hee and both go tumbling which forces Jae-Hee to the doctors office. Jae-Hee goes and no one is there and hides when Tae-Joon and the doctor comes in and she overhears that Tae-Joon had pain when he jumped. The doctor says he could have Yips Syndrome where all of a sudden he has pain when he plays sports especially when the sport has high psychological pressure and that there is no cure.

Jae-Hee is called out by the doctor and he wants to kick her out of the school and she explains that she came to see Tae-Joon jump again the doctor agrees for the time being. Jae-Hee tries to convince Tae-Joon to keep jumping and that she will do anything for him and he says she has to move out.


Eun-Gyeol finds Jae-Hee moping and tries to cheer her up in a soccer match he wins and takes a picture of them on the ground and his heart starts to beat and sees light around Jae-Hee.


The next day Jae-Hee is stopped by Yang Seoyoon a reporter who wants to do a story on Tae-Joon. Min Hyun-Jae who is another high-jumper in the school went to the doctors office to drop off something he decides to look in Tae-Joon’s file and takes pictures of it. This results in Tae Joon’s records being put online and Tae-Joon’s manager wanting to sue the reporter. Tae-Joon is trying to figure out who did and remembers picking up Jae-Hee’s clothes and finding the reporter’s card in her clothes. Tae-Joon confronts Jae-Hee and asks him if he wanted to be around him to sell information to reporters. Jae-Hee denies it and Tae-Joon leaves the room saying that is a worse answer than expected.

The 34th Jini Althetlics High School Competition is happening and Tae-Joon doesn’t show up for the high jump. Jon-Min hurt himself so he cannot run the marathon so Jae-Hee volunteers herself in his place. Jae-Hee makes it to the first checkpoint where a lot of people drop out because of the pain. The rival orange dorm 3 waits and switches people out throughout the marathon.

 Tae Joon joins his dorm and Eun-Gyeol tells him that since he was gone Jae-Hee had to run the marathon. As Jae-Hee makes it to the final dead-point dorm 3 the orange team, which was switched off kicks Jae-Hee in the leg and she falls to the ground.

 Jae-Hee gets up and keeps running and towards the end catches up with dorm 3 and overtakes him. The doctor watching says his leg is twisted and Jae-Hee falls to the ground, she gets up again and stays ahead and finishes the marathon in first place. Jae-Hee catches up with Tae-Joon and tells him that she didn’t leak it to the press.

Dorm 2 wins the competition and they chant Jae-Hee’s name and lift her in the air because she is the most valued player. Eun Gyeol talks to Jae-Hee and his heart begins to beat again so he leaves. Seol Ha-Na comes to the party looking for Tae- Joon. Tae-Joon eventually comes to the party and takes an alcoholic drink without realizing it and the dorm president explains that Tae-Joon has an allergy to alcohol and goes crazy and kisses the first person he sees. Tae-Joon stumbles around, meets up with Jae-Hee and then kisses her.

Overall I say this was a pretty satisfying episode I mean come on a kiss so early!! lol  it was a cute kiss! I think Eun-Gyeol is also cute especially because he has a crush on Jae-Hee and can’t figure out why. First of all I am so tired of Jong-Min tripping Jae-Hee I mean does no one ever call him on it?? hopefully they won’t keep using this same trick for his character because it is getting old already. I mean they don’t really explain why Jong-Min hates Jae-Hee I think its because he wants to be a prettier boy than Jae-Hee. Another thing is that Tae-Joon wants Jae-Hee to leave the dorm room as a way to do anything for him and then she doesn’t so not sure how that was resolved exactly. They still haven’t disclosed how Tae-Joon even hurt himself in the first place and what exactly is his connection to Ha-Na and why she thinks she is his girlfriend. I guess we will all find out in the next episode!!
