Stuck In Past
Meanwhile, Soo-Jeong is having a hard time with counseling her students about their future. During Bok-Su’ turn, he tells her how hard it was for him after he got expelled. He further tells her that how he could stand everything except that she never believed him about the incident (or asked his side of the story). Next day he doesn’t come to the school and hangs out with Kyung-Hyun, he is thinking about leaving the school. Another day passes, Bok-Su is with his friends in their office again, Soo-Jeong calls him but Min-Ji picks up the phone (when Bok-Su is out).

Se-Ho and Soo-Jeon have a “dinner date” in the school kitchen. During the dinner, Se-Ho tells her about his feelings for her. She first takes it as a joke but he tells her that he is serious. She doesn’t answer, he asks her is it because of Bok-Su?

She rushes off to the Bok-Su’ house and meets him. She asks him if he did push Se-Ho off the roof to which he denies. Soo-Jeong further asks him he was the one who told everyone about her being poor. He denies it again, she then asks that if he was with her because he found her pitiful. In tears, he tells her that he hung out with her because he liked her. She apologizes for asking too late.
Firstly I would like to apologize about the delay in the release of the recap. I just didn’t have much time to watch and write (mostly write, also because Cricket is on) during the holidays. I hope you guys will understand although I am pretty sure nobody cared. Anyways, I am having a hard time making my opinion about Se-Ho. His underhanded techniques to win Soo-Jeong makes me hate him (his excuse’ “all is fair in love and war”). On the other hand, he seems to really care about the students and genuinely wants to change the school for good. This could be because he wants to distinguish himself from his “evil” mother. Let me know your thoughts on this dilemma. Also, I would like to see Bok-Su stay true to his name (Boksu means revenge). There has been no development in this department, I hope this changes soon. He is also crying too easily for my liking but I could see why. Still a quite slow paced for my liking.
