Eun-Ho in return of saving him becomes Dan-Yi’s errand boy for a whole year. The errand boy situation helped him become the writer he is today. Dan-Yi is caught by Eun-Ho at his house when she is secretly trying to eat food late at night.
Another alright episode nothing much special. We do get some more of the back story and gets introduced to the new characters. The pace of the show seems to be slow I hope it picks up in the upcoming episodes. No signs of any romance yet although Eun-Ho seems to be carrying a torch for Dan-Yi. Nothing much to say to be honest as nothing happened. But all in all, I am still enjoying and going to stick with the series for at least a few more episode before I make my final decision about the drama.
