7 First Kisses Episode 8 Recap

7 First Kisses Episode 8 Recap “Last Gift” 

Min Soo Jin (Lee Cho Hee) is thrilled when Lee Min Ho shows up at the help desk. She assumes he is a model for the store. That confuses him. Her slacker co-worker gush about loving his book “Traveling to Find Myself”. Ah, so he’s a travel writer.

Soo Jin assumes he’s there for her like all the other guys. Following the path of the other men, Soo Jin declares they’ve met before – maybe hometown, work, school, etc.  Lee Min Ho says they’ve never met. She’s not translating his obvious confusion. She asks why he’s there. Lee Min Ho states he’s got a question and this is the information desk. Soo Jin swats his shoulder, bats her eyes, and asks if he wants to ask her out on a date. Lee Min Ho is surprised at how forward she is. Poor Soo Jin, she does not realize this is not like before.

Her slacker co-workers ask if she’s lost her mind due to the handsome man in front of her.  Soo Jin asks if he wants her phone number. She stage whispers that he’ll eventually like her. Oh dear, she’s stepped into making a fool of herself territory. Lee Min Ho politely tells her she has the wrong idea. He turns and asks her slacker co-workers the question. Soo Jin finally realizes her mistake. Thank goodness, she recognizes the error of her ways.

7kiss_ep8_0500After work Soo Jin leaves the store reading Lee Min Ho’s travel book. She turns and he’s there. Soo Jin apologizes for her previous behavior. Lee Min Ho graciously accepts her apology. Soo Jin explains she mistook him for someone else. She tells him the book is good. Soo Jin says she especially liked his observation “It’s a daily life to search for something that will love me. But searching for something I will love is a journey.” Lee Min Ho smiles. Soo Jin shares that she recently had a similar journey so that observation resonated with her. Lee Min Ho smiles and says most readers don’t notice the significance of that observation.

Soo Jin asks why he’s there. Lee Min Ho hands her a card (just like the other 6) and says she dropped it. Soo Jin turns it over and sees the blank silhouette of a man. Then the silhouette becomes Lee Min Ho. Soo Jin stares at Lee Min Ho and smiles a big, bright smile. Lee Min Ho returns her smile.

The camera pulls away and we end with the two of them smiling at each other. It’s too long of a shot and even Lee Min Ho has to look away after a moment.

The remainder of the episode is the behind the scene of shooting the episode.

The producers thank us for watching 7 First Kisses.

My Thoughts

Weak episode. It didn’t follow the formula. There wasn’t even an almost kiss! I feel jilted! To be fair, with that poor script, an almost kiss would not have fit.

Lee Min Ho wasn’t showcased as effectively as others have been. I understand the producers wanting to snap up Lee Min Ho but really, write a better episode for the man, he’s a major star. Good grief, I could have whipped something up. If they’d only called…

So this was my first web series. It was light and fluffy fun. Most of the men managed to make the material work. Frankly, I loved the cheesy music and the Soo Jin fantasy highlights (mooning over the man, having the man secretly like her, having the man want to date her, having the man try to kiss her) that occurred every episode until the last two (Lee Jong Suk and Lee Min Ho) when they deviated from a formula that worked. I enjoyed watching to see the men rock a weird situation to their advantage.

Assuming this is the last episode, we’ll never know who Soo Jin choose. As before I offer my list to guide her.

My final ranking of the men:
1. Lee Joon Gi
2. Ji Chang Wook
3. Taecyeon
4. Park Hae Jin
5. Lee Jong Suk
6. Lee Min Ho
7. Kai

Episode 8 is below.

    Exceptionally disappointing ending. Like you said, no kiss–or even an almost kiss. Boo-Hiss! Any female viewer over the age of 8 could’ve written a better ending than what we were shown.
    I agree with your rankings but might switch JCW and LJG. The JCW segment was great because Soo Jin got to kick butt on the baddies.

      It perplexes me why they deviated from a formula that worked for the last 2 episodes. But dramas waning at the end is often the norm.

      Soo Jin was the strongest in the JCW segment. But LJG blazed the trail and set expectations in that first episode. Besides that, LJG is darling!

      Gotta agree that the ending was a huge disappointment 🤔😛😣. Why did they deviate from the formula? LMH didn’t seem all that interested in Soo Jin. Where were the seven first kisses as the title promises? How about Soo Jin’s choice? Did they simply not want to offend any of the Hallyu stars? Couldn’t they have shown the “what if” of the seven kisses? The actress must have been disappointed too😖.

      • shamrockmom3 says:

        Heh, I’d wager that the next drama contract she signs is gonna be a lot more specific about the kisses! The Lotte group really screwed up…Imagine the viewers commenting on all the (real) kisses, arguing over which one was the best. Or seven different endings, each with the (real) kiss that let her know this one was The Man For Her. All that free publicity blown to smithereens. And yes, LMH must have been either jet-lagged or sleepwalking through his segment. He couldn’t have acted less interested if he tried.

      • kjtamuser says:

        I’m guessing that the stars NOT kissing was part of the deal. The Lee Jong Suk episode is suddenly riveting in comparison to the Lee Min Ho episode. That episode gave the vibe that they started filming late at night and wrapped it up quickly. I agree the chemistry between Lee Cho Hee and Lee Min Ho was nonexistent. You have to give her credit for having decent chemistry with everyone else.
