Love Is Supposed To Be Crazy
We begin episode 8 of Lovestruck In The City with Jae-Won receiving more bad news; it turns out Kyeung-Jun removed the memory card from his dashcam. This means it definitely wouldn’t have recorded Eun-O. Jae-Won is not happy and the pair wind up fighting in the car, culminating in Jae-Won pulling over and telling his colleague to get out.
Jae-Won is obsessed though, determined to find Eun-O and get his cameras back. Before he can do that though, Jae-Won leaves another video message for Eun-O, listing his positive traits and how much of a catch he is.
Meanwhile, Seon-Yeong decides to move on and delete everything in her life to do with Kang Geon… except following Eun-O on Instagram. When Eun-O shares a video of Kang Geon eating pizza, Seon-Yeong can’t stop watching and eventually sets her sights on going after her.
Jae-Won continues to suffer and heads to the doctors for advice. Only, it turns out the doctor there is an old classmate, Seong-U. He thinks twice about opening up to him and instead heads out drinking.
As it turns out, one of the moments he was blind drunk – including the first day of snow – Eun-O was there. Watching from afar, she saw Jae-Won down by the stones in the river and then getting blind drunk.
The evening where Jae-Won reported Eun-O now has more context too. It turns out during Jae-Won’s drunken antics, Eun-O sat opposite him while he was passed out. When ha awakens, he believes he’s i na dream and plays along. She repeatedly tells him to forget about her but he refuses, reminding her they’re married. Of course, to her this was all a big joke but for Jae-Won it was real. So real in fact, that the pair eventually sit together and cuddle up.
Back in the present, Seong-U and Jae-Won leave the bar but the former rings his ex-girlfriend Ji-Yeong. Only, it turns out they’re actually married and he has an 8 month old at home. She’s understandably not happy about him drinking and begins to run out of patience.
As Jae-Won heads down to the river again, he contemplates throwing away his ring. Suddenly though, Eun-O walks by on the other side of the stream. She spots him too and tries running away until Jae-Won catches up. As he does, the police show up and arrest her for stealing Jae-Won’s camera bag.
The Episode Review
Lovestruck In The City returns for a much improved episode this time, with a good flow and pacing throughout. The focus is squarely back on Jae-Won and Eun-O’s relationship, and with that comes a couple of fleshed out flashbacks with more context. The moments involving Eun-O and Jae-Won meeting in the bar is a nice touch and certainly shows that they both still have feelings for one another.
The ending is certainly a good way to close things off this week as well, with a conclusion to this ongoing camera saga and the police catching their thief. It’s a realistic, awkward and surprisingly well-written segment that pays off the earlier foreshadowed moments in the show. Quite what will happen next though, remains to be seen.
