Despite a pretty expected progression into our final arc, the path to romance is populated with enough meddlers, interlopers, and busybodies to make the trip a fun one.
Paramedics rush into the workshop, and they see that Yi-seol is clutching a bloody hand in a towel, looking shaken. Byung-hoon must understand what her fear is, because he just cradles her comfortingly while "Dating agency ep 2 summary" cries.
He talks soothingly about the injury being no big deal, calming her down. Byung-hoon gets Yi-seol to the hospital, where the doctor informs him that it was Dating agency ep 2 summary by a flare-up of her neuritis. Byung-hoon understands that the threat is eventual paralysis of her hand, and that this condition was caused by the accident. Ack, more guilt to shoulder.
The doc advises that Yi-seol ease the use of her right hand and quit sculpting altogether, lest she injure herself further. The doctor had advised her Dating agency ep 2 summary the past to quit her work, but she says she has nothing without it. Points to her for being straightforward about that—it drives me nuts when characters make the grand statement, then negate their actions immediately.
Byung-hoon dismisses her feelings as sentimentality spurred by the firefighter-nurse couple, which, boooo. His inability to admit his feelings is why Yi-seol chose his friend to begin with, she points out. Min-young challenges him to be honest with himself, even if that leads him to Yi-seol instead of herself.
She leaves, and just around the corner, we see that Moo-jin has heard the whole thing. Aw, is the robot genius going to meddle? Go forth and meddle! One glower from Seung-pyo is enough to shut them up, but the thought of Min-young being a hyungsoo-nim makes him smile. The next day, Moo-jin tells Arang that Min-young might not come in to work today because of the confession that got rejected.
True enough, Min-young waits at the bus station with suitcase in hand. He pokes his nose around and Byung-hoon asks him to leave, calling him Hawaiian Shirt, and the guy gives his name as Jung Il-do. Is it pure coincidence that we have another Il-do in this show?
All he does is hover creepily and tell them to remember his name.
Let it be noted that a worried-looking Byung-hoon suddenly lightens up to see her, though he puts the gruff face back on. Her cheerful face is back in place, so when Byung-hoon calls her out for lying about her apartment, she just says she wants to be closer to him.
Did he forget her confession already? Well, at least one of you is! I knew I liked her for a reason. Or he could just be clear, she adds—say, tell her distinctly that he wants her gone.
She smiles at his non-response: It would be better if he just said he likes her, she says, and Byung-hoon is so taken aback he just looks at her in confusion. Aw, you romantic robot you. The world contains hidden gifts of turning Dating agency ep 2 summary. If we can turn those into opportunities, we can live a life without regrets.
Hye-ri hears about Min-young moving into the theater, which she relays to Seung-pyo. That just reconfirms his suspicions that she likes Byung-hoon, which puts his frowny face on. Min-young does some organizing of boxes and finds an old marionette. Byung-hoon grumps at her, per usual, though today she sighs that his annoying ways just look cute now. Then as he turns to leave, Min-young purposely rocks the wall of boxes and exclaims in concern, and Byung-hoon goes rushing at her to take the brunt of the falling boxes.
HA, did she purposely stack a of empty ones to prove a point?
She grins from ear to ear while he gapes that she did it on purpose. Min-young tells him to stop just staring after Yi-seol and try seeing her appeal. That hurts, and is compounded by the fact that he then takes a call from Yi-seol.
It may have been because of Do-il. But we would have ended up as friends, like now. Well he does now. Min-young takes a jog by the river that night, feeling down about the Yi-seol comparison. The goons note Dating agency ep 2 summary gloominess and decide to head into their next matchmaking phase, which consists of jumping into her path and offering her a soju juice box with sippy straw.
A short while later, they send Seung-pyo a text with a photo of Min-young drunk by the river, hinting at impending trouble. The goons take off the minute Seung-pyo arrives, leaving him to play the gallant hero. She wonders the same thing, and laments liking the weird money-grubber instead.
Min-young falls asleep in his arms like that, and he resists the urge to kiss her anyway. Instead, he carries her on piggyback to the agency, where Byung-hoon bristles to see them thus. Seung-pyo lets his disgust show, calling the cocky bastard who betrayed his friend for his personal fame, leaving him behind and in the lurch. Fuming, he stalks out. Byung-hoon checks on Min-young, clearly wanting to accept her feelings but feeling blocked.
He says that being with him will only bring her trouble, which is either nobly idiotic or an excuse. I suppose it could be both. Then he heads next door to continue the conversation with Seung-pyo.
And can he be responsible for those feelings through the end? And so, Byung-hoon gathers the team sans Min-young and fills them in. She stands there yawning, watching the endless tedium.
Master is much better for her than I am. Not when they know the couple likes each other. Moo-jin makes a suggestion: Arang nods, and they agree: Their target will be Byung-hoon.
And Byung-hoon takes the bait, feeling appropriately outraged on her behalf for the bastard first love who used her feelings to hook up with her best friend instead. Seung-pyo comes up to Min-young as she arrives outside the agency that night, and she thanks him for his help the night before. Meanwhile, the boys chime in to talk up Min-young and shoot each other these cute knowing glances. Byung-hoon decides his Dating agency ep 2 summary of attack: What keeps it interesting for me is the number of romance operations going on at once, which is like this big meta whirl of plotting and double-plotting and counter-plotting and maybe some more plotting on Dating agency ep 2 summary of that.
The two goons have their own blockheaded plot to get Master his girl. Min-young is working her own mini-gig to advance her suit with Byung-hoon. Misguided, yes, but also really sweet. It still drives me a little batty when grown people sacrifice and make decisions for other people based on what they assume is better for thembut as a final-arc setup, I can roll with it.
Especially since it basically amounts to everyone running around undermining Byung-hoon. Your email address will not be published. Is there any chance Seung-pyo can get Min-young, and Byung-hoon can get another girl I have been in this ship from the beginning knowing that it'll sink, but somehow I can't change my mind.
