Flashback…Before she decides she seeks advice from her boss. He encourages her to seize the opportunity. That bumps her courage. Her female coworker also supports her decision. That bumps her courage. She seeks advice from Gu Woong. He discourages her noting the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence. Yu Mi counters there will be positives.

The 4 acts of this episode ended of a cliffhanger…where was Gu Woong when he claimed to be at his apartment? This episode Yu Mi stretched her cute skills with the reward of Gu Woong liking her unique style. Yu Mi stretched her writing skills with the reward of an offered position with the marketing group. It was a surprise when Yu Mi ended the episode at Gu Woong’s apartment only to learn he wasn’t there as claimed.
Kim Yu Mi (Kim Go Eun) garnered a new opportunity. At Yu Babi urging, Yu Mi wrote a post for the company that was successful. She was surprised to be offered a position with the coveted marketing team. Part of her decision process was poling her inner circle. She was surprised when Gu Woong advised against it. In the end, Yu Mi accepted. This should create more time with Yu Babi, and potentially shake our couple.
Gu Woong (Ahn Bo Hyun) is hiding something. Gu Woong lies again in the series, this time claiming to be at his apartment when he wasn’t. This episode was squarely focused on Yu Mi with Gu Woong in a secondary role. Considering Gu Woong advised Yu Mi against the new position, is he working again with Sae Yi without telling Yu Mi?
The eighth song of the OST is a delight called “Our Story” sung by MeloMance.
I rank this episode as good, 8 on a 10-point scale.
I cringed when Yumi’s⚛📡 detective cell urged her to learn aegyo with Ruby 🔴. ✳ NOoo, just say NO❗✳ Yumi⚛📡 was definitely better off coming up with her own style of cuteness rather than having Ruby as a mentor.
I 💗 the analogy of the bowls of courage … having a reserve and borrowing from others. Initially I saw it as a cautionary tale about borrowing from others. However it seems Woong🐸🦖 being a downer about Yumi’s⚛📡 new opportunity isn’t about his confidence in Yumi⚛📡, but rather a reflection of his own circumstances of being overwhelmed and possibly not wishing that kind of situation on Yumi⚛📡. “Considering Gu Woong advised Yu Mi against the new position, is he working again with Sae Yi without telling Yu Mi?” -KJT. That may be the case, but I suspect Woong🐸🦖 may be living at work to keep his business going since he fired Sae Yi ☣ … why did Woong🐸🦖 lie ❓⁉️
