In the previous episode, Ryan learns that he was mistaken about Deok-Mi being in a romantic relationship with Sun-Joo. He also learns that Deok-Mi is a fangirl of Shi-An and runs SAIML fan club. He then secretly joins the fan club under a false ID. Da-In an old friend of Ryan comes to Korea and her closeness with Ryan makes Deok-Mi jealous. Ryan gets angry at Deok-Mi then he tries to apologize but ends up kissing her (my favorite way of an apology). So now let us start her private life episode 7-8 recap.
