By The Seaside
Soo-Hyun finds out that Jin-Hyeok is in Cuba as well, she keeps contacting him but he is out of reach. She goes to all the places they spend the time together, finally, she goes back to the restaurant where they were supposed to meet during their earlier trip. She sees a message left by Jin-Hyeok from last time, Jin-Hyeok arrives at the restaurant as well. Later, when they are enjoying their time together Soo-Hyun receives the call that the owner of the land has agreed to sell. Excited Jin-Hyeok gives a Kiss, it was a very very long kiss especially for Song Joong-ki’s liking.
Well well well there is nothing else to talk about other than the kiss. I will really like to know how Joong-Ki is felling about all this. I am starting to feel sorry for our daddy long legs Woo-Seok. He is trying his bad but it is too late now and he knows it as well. And my hatred for Soo-Hyun’s mother is growing at a very steep rate thanks to her “motherly love”. It was a nice change to see Mi-Jin and Dae-Chan getting closer to each other during all the commotion. I would love to see a two-episode special mini-series just about them. The security guard in the epilogue deserves the praise the most. The week-long wait is going to be as long and intense as the kiss.
