Meanwhile, Ho-jae was inspired to become a model upon meeting Cha-hee, who had already a well-established modelling career. He posed for a magazine as a replacement model, and later asked for money from his parents to study in a modelling institute. At this time, Ho-jae proposed to Soo-ji, but they met with stiff opposition from their parents. The couple then approached a statue of Jesus Christpleading him to permit their relation. The couple bought a small, cheap flat unit on the top floor of a flat, shortly after Soo-ji's parents forsook her.
A few months later, Ho-jae bought a car, which made Soo-ji extremely happy.
Ho-jae's character eventually turned for the worse when he began frequenting nightclubs with his friends, frequently returning home drunk. An angry Soo-ji isolated him, but under Cha-hee's direction, she arranged a private dinner at home, wearing an evening gown as an attempt to entice Ho-jae into her lure.
When Ho-jae returned home, he was rather shocked upon seeing Soo-ji's unusual behaviour. However, his attitude briefly changed for the better when he realised that Soo-ji wanted to spend a romantic night with him, saying, "Why didn't you say earlier? I am an expert in this field! Hearing that, Soo-ji's mood changed for the worse, and asked Ho-jae to make his point clear.
Ho-jae's attempt made Soo-ji even angrier, and she pushed him away when he tried to approach her. Ho-jung finally gave up on Seon-woo, and her mother returned the wedding ring given to Ho-jung to him.
The two later met, and Seon-woo gave her an ice-cream treat, saying that ice-cream is good for people who are depressed. That night, he brought her to a karaoke, and sang a song. Ho-jung looked on sympathetically. Sweet endings[ edit ] Finally, Ho-jae and Soo-ji got married in a mini-celebration with the approval of their parents. Soo-ji and Ho-jae bumped into each other when they did the traditional Korean bow, which created a comical atmosphere.
The friends were a little surprised when Kyo-in showed up late. One night, some time later, while returning home from work, Kyo-in and Ho-jung happened to pass the same shop window and both thought of their past memories.

Both of them later happened to be on the same subway platform, Kyo-in tried to give chase when Ho-jung got on the train but the doors closed as he rushed towards it. Kyo-in got on the next train and sat on the stairs that he visited frequently with Ho-jung. As he was about to leave, Ho-jung called out to him. The couple sat next to each other on the stairs, and asked about Seon-woo. Ho-jung admitted that she occasionally contacts Seon-woo.
Ho-jung notices a ring on Kyo-in's little finger and comments on it. Kyo-in removed the ring from his hand, and said that he had bought it a long time ago for his love. Then he says that he'll give it to the woman that he'll love in the future. Ho-jung protests that no woman will accept it with that kind of history.
Kyo-in puts the ring on her palm and tells her that she doesn't have to wear but to please keep it for him.

We Are Dating Now Korean Drama Review
Ho Jung has a best friend who is as close to her as a sister. Su Ji Lee Eui Jung, a tiny girl skilled at both comedy and dramais the studious, bespectacled only daughter of wealthy parents mother Eun Sook Sunwoo, an obstetrician, and lecturer father Hyun Sik Im, a doting dad who calls his daughter Princess. The two girls adore each other and their loving bond will resonate with any woman who has a childhood best friend as I do in my friend Jill who created this kdramalove website.
He is infuriatingly selfish, and enjoys teasing her even while borrowing money from her to take his girlfriends out on dates — but she is reluctantly drawn to him anyway.
Kyo In is reserved, intelligent, and can be prickly but he has a good heart and kind nature. He becomes best friends with Ho Jae and later forms a bond with Ho Jung as well when he tutors her in drill instructor type fashion for her college entrance exam. Theirs is the primary love story in this drama, but curiously, it is less interesting in its development than the secondary love story more on that in a minute.
Instead of falling for Kyo In, the boy next door, Ho Jung embarks on a series of disappointing and usually one-sided romances.
The earliest one used to introduce us to Ho Jung as a little girl is with a chivalrous classmate named Jeon Woo. However, this romance is cut short when her family moves away winding up in the house where Kyo In and his sister will later rent out the lower apartment.
Sung Si Kyung, you can sing to us anytime, baby! As a teenager, Ho Jung befriends and develops a huge crush on a serious college student named Jae Young played by Sung Si Kyung, in real life an accomplished singer of K-drama themes and ballads who, with his gentle face and wire-rimmed glasses, reminded me of Bae Yong Joon from Winter Sonata.
But Jae Young thinks she is too young for him and just sees her as a friend, though he does not exactly discourage her attention either. Ho Jung is devastated when she learns that he is instead taken with her classmate Cha-hee Yoon Young Choia bold and self assured beauty who could not care less if one more man finds her attractive.
The indignant Ho Jung confronts Cha Hee, impulsively betting her that Jae-young will not want to have anything to do with her if he learns she is only a high school student and not in college like himself.
The surprising development here is that the encounter between the two girls forges an enduring friendship. After seeing how her mother was betrayed by a man, Cha Hee has resolved to keep her heart to herself. Even though she is not vulnerable to romantic love at least not yetshe does long for a good friend.
He is a struggling student, working several jobs to pay for his tuition. Ho Jung actually lends him money for school, and he repays her by taking up with another girl while away at college.
Ho Jung maintains her dignity, but she is beginning to realize that her trusting nature is not serving her well in the love department. When she finally meets a man who is more in love with her than she is with him, he turns out to be an obsessive psycho.
Beware of men who fall in love at first sight and make too many grand gestures. Once she is able to extricate herself from his irrational attentions, she is drawn to an older man who owns a nightclub.
He lends her a sympathetic ear when she begins to realize her feelings for Kyo In, and seems devoted to winning her affections. You get the idea. Ho Jung eventually stops looking for romance and focuses on her career, eventually finding her passion for photography.
Although we continue to root for the engaging Ho Jung, for me the more satisfying romantic story line was the opposites attract connection between the serious Su Ji and the frivolous Ho Jae, who like Romeo and Juliet struggle to come together despite family opposition from both sides. One day he offers to take her out and forgets to show up at the restaurant on time. He pulls out all the stops to win her back, and in the process, the two acknowledge that they want to be together.
Ultimately, they will wind up defying their parents to live together, but the path to romance is never smooth for these two despite their devotion. Su Ji is willing to wait for Ho Jae to grow up — little does she know how long that process will take! This romance is all the more intriguing because it is not clear whether Ho Jae ever will rise the occasion, and along the way, a more appropriate suitor comes along to tempt her away from him.
Su Ji becomes a dentist, and when a colleague declares himself to her, she is tempted to please her parents and marry him. I found myself rooting for this guy too, a mature man instead of the childish Ho Jae. Will Ho Jae ever become the man she deserves? He seems to try hard, but we are never quite sure whether her faith in him is misplaced.
She only begins to realize she is interested in him as more than a friend when he starts dating the assertive Cha Hee, and she sees them kissing a move which Cha Hee initiates and Kyo In is a little embarrassed by. At that point, Ho Jung is herself unattached and finds herself surprisingly jealous of their romance. The simmering attraction for Kyo In now comes dangerously close to a boil, and Cha Hee decides to try and put a stop to it.
She gives Kyo In an ultimatum to distance himself from Ho Yung if he wants to continue their relationship. He complies, but is still secretly carrying a torch for his friend, while she is disappointed to lose his company.
