(*11*)The Episode Review
It appears episode 11 is all in regards to the awkwardness and my gosh how loopy was that ultimate dinner? It’s been foreshadowed for some time that this entire factor could be an entire catastrophe with our 4 leads and we lastly get a style of that proper on the dying. For Sang-su to not simply break up with Mi-gyeong however to do it on her birthday of all days, proper after an excellent awkward meal with Jong-hyeon and Su-yeong, is subsequent degree.
That entire part with the automobile trip had been fantastically foreshadowed earlier within the collection although when Gyeong-pil revealed to Sang-su that Mi-gyeong went by means of a messy break-up earlier than.
It’s very clear that that is going to spill over on the financial institution, particularly if the Seok-hyun scenario is something to go by right here. There’s completely no turning again now however whether or not Su-yeong has the conviction to interrupt up with Jong-hyeon as nicely stays to be seen. I’ve a sense she might not, after which the entire scenario with Sang-su goes to change into large information on the department.
Everything right here has been simmering for some time and now we’re lastly hitting boiling level. This messy drama goes to completely explode within the coming episodes.
