He looks at the message later and it says he is still waiting and that if she can’t come she should call. Jin-Hoo drives down there and finds Manger Kang and asks him if he as feelings for Jung-Soo and doesn’t let him answer.  Jin-Hoo tells Manager Kang that if he has feeling for Jung-Soo, he needs to stop because he has just realized he has feelings for her and this ends episode 9.

Picture 13

Picture 14

Wow quite an exciting ending to this episode! I didn’t think that Jin-Hoo was going to understand his feelings already! I mean it was quite obvious he did because he was always getting jealous whenever Manager Kang had anything to do with her. I love that Jin-Hoo has zero interest in Kyung-Hee and of course Kyung-Hee is going to be so upset in the end and that Jung-Soo is going to take everything away from her even the guy that she likes. To be honest I feel the same about Jin-Hoo and Manager Kang, I would be happy for either of them to end up with Jung-Soo although I do find it funny when Jin-Hoo gets upset and has little tantrums. Of course Jung-Soo is oblivious to the way he acts towards her!! I think it was dumb that Jung-Soo got fired because first of all Jung-Soo didn’t submit any design so therefore, she never plagiarized, and secondly if Jung-Soo had plagiarized to start off with why would she even want it to be investigated that would be more dangerous! such as her losing her job. Anyway it looks like she has 2 knights fighting for her so of course it is going to work out for her in the end. I love that Jung-Soo recognized that Kyung-Hee was afraid of her! I am sure that put Kyung-Hee in her place a bit. This was an awesome cliff hangar!

She sees the name on the door is Naruse not Narumi. She thinks then that his brother is in the same situation and she recalls Hikaru telling her that he is dependent until his is 20 and then the house will be sold off. She realizes that he turned 20 a year ago so he had to leave the house.

Mizuho is sitting down with the current owner of the house and she tells her that Narumi-san was the person that lived here before and he was a painter.

Yanai says that he doesn’t think that they should jump to conclusions based only on that. Mizuho says she wants to stay here and ask around the neighborhood and the minute she finds anything she will report to him. Mizuho starts walking away, Yanai asks her to stop and grabs her arm saying that it is getting late and to keep it for later and that if she should ask Hikaru about Haruka being his brothers ex. She tells him that it is impossible because Hikaru is not answering his phone and that she thinks he is doing it on purpose. Yanai tells her thats an assumption on her part . She goes on saying that Hikaru has always played the fool, has been aimless and reckless and that he is not honest about his feelings. That they have never talked about anything essential and he doesn’t trust her enough to talk about his fears and things that matter. Yanai tells her to calm down and she says she is calm and tells him to go back before her because she is taking his desire to find out about Haruka’s ex very seriously. Mizuho starts walking away again and Yanai goes after her yelling that even though she has reached her limit to not selfishly shut other people out and then tells her to wait until she calms down because these things are hard to talk about and that once she has explained everything properly, he’ll understand

Yanai, Mastuura and Mizuho are at a restaurant and Mizuho says sorry to Yanai and that it could be because she is bad at conveying her feelings to others. She goes on saying that people think she is cool but the truth is she has come this far without being able to convey her feelings properly to others. Matsuura joins in and says that there are lots of people like that if they are not goo with words, they try to express themselves by singing or painting. He goes on saying that if he was the only one in the world he would never paint, sing or argue and that there would be no point in thinking or feeling. Yanai agrees and says that we start doing something because they want to connect with others. Matsuura agrees and says that even those who are hard to understand and he also wonders if Haruka was also like that.

He goes on saying that how he came to know Haruka was, he flashbacks to his class sketching outside. Haruka is sitting on a bench in front of him and he comes over and talks about the colors she is using in her picture of a tree. He is very friendly with her and tries to grab her sketchbook out of her hands to look at the painting and she runs away. Matsuura explains that to him Haruka was just overflowing with the bright colors that kids love like yellow, pink or green. He goes on saying that he it is quite different from what she seems and that he is sure she had feelings that couldn’t be expressed through words. Matsuura goes on saying that even if you feel like you can’t express yourself properly, if you try hard one day your feeling will get through.

Picture 6

Picture 7

Picture 8

Yanai and Mizuho are walking and she tells him that tomorrow she is going to visit Hikaru but she doesn’t know if he will talk to her but she will make an effort to convey her feelings to him. He agrees and says that he wasn’t lying when he said that through this search for Haruka’s ex-boyfriend he wanted to meet his unknown girlfriend and that maybe at some point he wanted to change himself and that she shouldn’t give up because the person she loves is still alive. They then say goodbye and she thinks as he walks away reality is something like this and to not shut yourself again, shine brightly and give your all to create a future full of rainbows. She calls out to him and tells him that he is very kind and that he is not incompetent and is a good man and that she means it.

Picture 9

Mizuho goes in and they both can’t find Hikaru and Mizuho waits for him. She goes into the living room and the painting is broken into two pieces. Hikaru is shown in the room earlier and he kicks the painting into two. Mizuho tries phoning Hikaru and his phone is turned off. Mizuho thinks that if she continues with her efforts to convey her feelings one day the closed world will break apart and when that happens even if its imperfect, she thought that a shining rainbow-filled future will open up but she was naive, dreaming more worthless dreams than others. Mizuho falls to her knees in front of the painting and clutches her chest, Nanao-san comes to her asking if she is alright. She says she is and Nanao-san tells her that the reason she is feeling anxious is because he is important to her and that it is such a wonderful truth. Mizuho then thinks that she had always wanted to know about Hikaru and that curiosity led her to hold much guilt but if there is even a little bit of this wonderful feeling mixed up with that desire to know Hikaru she would like to affirm this desire. She then says that she wants to meet Hikaru’s mother.

Picture 10

Picture 11

Picture 12

Hikaru is walking with a letter in his back pocket.Picture 13

Mizuho is walking with Hikaru’s mother business card in her hand. Her name is called by Yanai and she thanks him for coming and he says lets go. They go in and are sitting at a table with tea and he asks if she is alright and she says yes. The doors open and Hikaru’s mother comes in, Mizuho thinks Hiro and Hikaru were both made by this person and this is how the 9th episode ends.

Picture 14

Picture 15

I was expecting something different to happen in this episode!! I thought Mizuho was going to meet Hikaru’s brother but instead it gets her to meet his mother instead! It has been made clear to us that Hiro is Haruka’s ex-boyfriend and that Hikaru has known this the whole time. He has been leading her down rabbit holes telling her that Yanai liked Haruka and this lead her to other places. No wonder Hikaru has been kinda weird in the past episodes he knows the truth will come out eventually and it is as if he is waiting around for her to figure it out and to question him about it. It makes sense why he has stayed out of the investigation which doesn’t seem like his personality, he seems like he is also a curious person needing to know all the answers but he already knew it.

 I am curious though why Haruka came to Hikaru and told him to stay away from Hiro? that is just weird and almost possessive! Of course it probably has to do with Hikaru and Hiro having a falling out because the picture and painting obivously angers him and he wants to destroy anything that has to do with his brother. I wonder if Hikaru is on his way to deliver Haruka’s letter? Or if he is too angry and he is going to destroy it in front of his brother or something really mean?

It was interesting with Mizuho who wants to try to convey her feelings better and that it seems like she is really similar with Yanai. Yanai and her both were unable to convey their feelings to their loved ones they were both scared of the rejection and decided against it.  It seems like Yanai has realized this and encourages Mizuho to be truthful with Hikaru and she reassures him that he is a kind person and that she is not incompetent which is what she also struggle with. I wonder how Hikaru’s mother is going to act towards her visiting her maybe she will not talk to them or maybe she will be very honest with what she did to her sons? It just keeps getting more intriguing!!

Episode 9 starts off with Miyuki explaining that she liked Hayato.

They sit outside on the patio and Souhei says sorry for all that happened and she says it fine it doesn’t bother her at all. She asks if his fake smile is tiring because she can’t do it very well when she tries to fake it. He says its because she is honest and she tells him because he has that character it might be easier for him to smile outside. She tells him that he doesn’t need to fake it when he is at home. She goes on saying he was being cool in front of Miyuki and she acts out what she thinks he would have really wanted to say and that was to tell Miyuki not to hug other guys while dating him.

He tells her that the girls at his house don’t really act like girls Kiyoka and Miku act more like guys. He then says that maybe Auntie is the most female-like.

Miku is leaving with her friends and she tells Hayato that she will wait where Kou is and he tells her he will come when he is done.

Souhei asks if he should walk her to her bus stop, she doesn’t answer but instead asks how long he is going to stay at the boarding house and he says he plans to stay a long time. Miyuki tells him that he has become very distant that when he lived farther away he was always in reach and now that he lives closer he seems farther away. He reminds her that when he first started boarding there she told him that he was glad he was in a safe place and he tells her he sees it as his home now. He tells her that if she told him to move it would be very hard, she says that is not what she is trying to say. He says she should tell him what she wants him to do and that he calls, text and gets together so she doesn’t feel uneasy. She says that he was doing it for her sake and that he doesn’t want to do those things and that she is forcing him. She says its fine already and that she doesn’t need those dates, texts or calls and she runs away. Souhei chases after her and tells her to say what she wants to say and she asks if he only thought of her today and asks him if he can say that he loves her overall, she says she can say it that she loves the Souhei that loves only her. She goes onto say that she doesn’t love Souhei of right now and then she runs away leaving Souhei who thinks its not fair.

Miku meets Kou who is playing soccer, she joins in and practices kicking soccer with him. Kou tells her to take care of Hayato for him and she agrees. Souhei comes across Miku and Kou and he says he was looking for Kou. Souhei joins soccer with them and leaves his phone and poster on the side.

Miyuki is walking and she tries phoning Souhei but he is playing soccer and doesn’t hear his phone.

Hayato comes and sees Souhei and Miku sitting together.

Miyuki thinks that its not fair and a train goes by and you see her hat flying in the air.

Souhei is awakened by his phone and Miyuki is mentioned in an urgent voice.

Miku and her dad are in the garden and he is picking weeds, Souhei comes running and grabs his bike. Miku follows him asking where he is going and he says that Miyuki didn’t come home last night  and he tried phoning her many times but she wouldn’t answer. He explains that they had a big fight and he left her in a bad mood. He gets on his bike and starts pedaling.

Okay what a doozy of an episode!! first of all Miyuki hugging Hayato apparently was not such a big deal between Miku and Hayato as it was for Souhei and Miyuki, At the end of episode eight it seemed like it was going to be a much bigger deal!! guess not! I thought finally a reason for her to feel guilty and she can’t keep looming that he doesn’t do enough for her but no she still becomes the victim and goes on that he is not a good boyfriend. I am confused as to how he was being distanced he always seems so happy and he doesn’t seem to be the type that talks about his feelings all the time. Why doesn’t she just say she is jealous of his and Miku’s relationship just for the simple fact that he lives with her and therefore has a relationship with her. Anyways she has gotten very annoying in this episode and now of course she is being even more annoying because she is missing!! with her hat flying in the wind I thought for a second that she jumped in front of the train but it can’t be that !! that would be too dark!!

Miku and Hayato I feel bad for Hayato he thinks that Miku only has feelings for Souhei now because he was overhearing her conversation but didn’t get to hear the end of it!! nooo!! they need to be together and happy!!

Tae-Joon goes upstairs and looks at all of Johnny’s photos, he finds one covered, he uncovers it and its Jae-Hee. Johnny comes in and says that he has known her since a kid and never seen such a bright smile. Johnny then says that Jae-Hee still thinks that Tae-Joon thinks she is a boy but from what he could that isn’t true. He asks why Tae-Joon pretends that she is a boy and know that he knows it changes things. His secretary interrupts and Johnny leaves Tae-Joon.

Seung-Ri is looking at photos of Ha-Na on his phone when she flips over the railing and lands next to him, he tells her that outsiders are prohibited and she insults him so he says that she can’t go see Tae-Joon. He looks at her and sees lights and hears music and she can get past.

Johnny is now taking pictures of Jae-Hee and the others and his secretary comes in and says that two male models can’t make it for the next photo shoot. Johnny then figures out that Tae-Joon and Eun-Gyeol can be the replacement models and so they have a photo shoot with them too. Eun-Gyeol wonders how Johnny got Tae-Joon to do the photo shoot. Jae-Hee then flashbacks to her asking Tae-Joon to be the replacement model because she owes Johnny a lot and he just agreed. Johnny then pressures Tae-Joon to think of the person he loves in the photo and this bothers him.They are all driving home and Jae-Hee coughs and Johnny gives her a blanket.

Tae-Joon and Jae-Hee are in the dorm and she coughs, he asks if she is okay and she says she is fine. He then goes to touch her forehead and he says that she has a slight fever, she says she is fine and he says I guess fools can’t get sick. Tae-Joon goes into the bathroom and looks at his hand.

Eun-Gyeol is practicing soccer, his coach asks him why he is training so hard and he says because he needs to go to nationals to impress someone. He then hits the ball again and it hits the coach’s head.

Dr. Jang is touching Tae-Joon’s ankle and they talk about him going to Canada. Tae-Joon says he doesn’t know if he should go, Dr. Jang says that if it is for Jae-Hee’s sake he should go to Canada. Dr. Jang explains Occam’s razor and that he should look at it simply and that if he doesn’t want to go to Canada then don’t go and figure out if there is something more important than Coach Holten.

Tae-Joon goes back to the dorm and asks why it is dark, she says that the bulb is out and goes to change it. Tae-Joon then goes behind her on the ladder and hugs her, he says sorry and that she was about to slip and that his head has become clearer. He then goes out to get some fresh air and Jae-Hee wonders if he knows she is a girl but then brushes off that idea.

Johnny is looking at the photos from the shoot and is looking at the one with Tae-Joon thinking about the one he loves. He zooms in on his eye and can see Jae-Hee’s reflection. Tae-Joon comes to him and he tells him that he knows Jae-Hee is a girl and wants her by his side. Johnny throws a basketball and they decide to play and they play aggressively. Johnny asks him what it means that he wants her by his side, he says that Johnny shouldn’t be getting involved in it. Johnny says he thinks he knows where this is headed and that he can’t let him have her so he is going to steal her from him.

In the dorm Tae-Joon hears Jae-Hee get up, she says she needs some water and then almost falls over. Tae-Joon feels her head and tells her to sit and he gets her the water, he tells her to lie down in his bed and Tae-Joon tells her he is going to see if the nurse’s office is open. She grabs his hand and tells him not to leave, He wets a cloth and puts it on her head. He falls asleep next to her.


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!!

Miku asks her what she is looking at and she says she looking at the scenery because it is the same as what Souhei sees everyday. Miku says that it is not that nice of a  scenery and she says its because it the same scenery that she shares with Souhei.

Arata tells Souhei that he should sleep in Miyuki’s room and Hayato should sleep in Miku’s room but Takeru and Souhei don’t agree to that idea. The girls come and ask what they are talking about and they say taxes and act silly. Miku then says that they need to pick some stuff up and says that Takeru and Arata have to come with her.

The three are walking with groceries and they stop at the meat place and she tells them that she always meets Kou there and as they turn Kou is sitting there eating.

Arata, Takeru and Kou are at the house playing foosball, Miku and Hayato come in and he asks what Kou is doing and he tells him that barley tea is in the fridge. MIku says that Kou has made himself at home and they go upstairs. Miku tells him that tonight they are having a takoyaki party. Hayato stops by Miku’s room and Miku keeps walking she comes back and asks him what he is looking at and he says that  he thought that they would be in the same room tonight. She says because everyone is here and he says he is just joking and touches her shoulders and keeps walking. She says it sure is hot today.

The four of them are at the table, Miku asks if after they clean up they have baths and that Miyuiki, Miku and then the guys go and they talk about how having one toliet is something to get used to. Souhei says that when he first started living there Miku was scary. Hayato is very quiet and Miyuki notices.

Miyuki is on the floor on a mattress and Miku is in her bed. Miyuki asks if she is awake and asks if she can join her in her bed and Miku agrees. Miyuki asks if Hayato is her first boyfriend and Miku says yes and that is why she might be carried away at times. Miku asks what number is Souhei and Miyuki says that he is her third boyfriend. She goes on saying that Souhei is the first one that she loves this much.

Hayato and Souhei are on mats on the floor and Souhei says that today is pretty fun. Hayato says that it was scary because he never done a group hang out and have a girlfriend. Souhei says it not scary and that it is fine like that.

Miyuki says she hated herself but since she met Souhei she thought she was able to think she was amazing because Souhei liked her. After liking Souhei she changed, Miku says that she knows how she feels. She is not treated like a girl around people but with Hayato she is able to feel like a girl and like it. Miyuki says that she knows how she feels.

Souhei is thinking that he won’t betray Miyuki or Hayato while glancing at Hayato sleeping.

Souhei wakes up, Hayato’s bedding is all folded up.

Hayato is crouched beside the garden, Miyuki comes and they look at the plants and she wonders what these plants will be. Hayato tells her not to do things like that again, she agrees. Souhei comes out but they can’t see him, Miyuki says that she is sorry and that something was wrong with her that day, to do that to Hayato. Hayato then turns around and sees Souhei and he asks what they mean, Miku comes around the corner and asks if its true. Hayato comes toward her and he says yes, Miyuki says sorry and that she liked Hayato.


Okay the eighth episode I have been waiting for this to come out!! finally!! first off I found the ending a tad confusing apparently everyone is a bit upset but it doesn’t seem like Souhei and Miku know what happened. Miyuki and Hayato never say out loud what happened to between them and Souhei just wanted to know what they are talking about and then Miku comes out asking if its true. I am not sure what is she asking is true? my best guess is that she heard them talking about something happening between the two of them and she wants to know if it is true. I mean even Souhei is confused and he was closer to them and I don’t understand why Miyuki doesn’t explain it a bit better to them and say she was upset and ran into Hayato and hugged because she thought she was losing Souhei to Miku. Instead she just says that she liked Hayato and doesn’t say anything else! if I was Souhei I would be thinking the worst like she kissed him or something more?? I was hoping that they were going to explain the hug thing for awhile and here they brought it up again and yet no real clear explanation (sigh). Anyway Souhei seems to be trying to convince himself that he only needs Miyuki even though he is clearly upset that Hayato and Miku are getting along so well and seriously dating. I guess his reaction to the hugging incident will really bring things around and may end up breaking up both couples and forming into new ones. I really want to see what the ninth episode will bring for the couples.
