Personal Taste — Episode 11

Kae In (played by Son Ye Jin) storms out in the middle of a musical and tells Chang Ryul that she can’t do this anymore; she only dated him so that she could exact revenge for the hurt he caused her. Chang Ryul says that it’s okay because he knows he can make her like him for real, but Kae In says it’s impossible ... because Chang Ryul doesn’t know who has her heart. Overhearing this, Jin Ho (played by Lee Min Ho) strides over, grabs Kae In and says “It’s game over,” and kisses her passionately. After the kiss, Kae In is obviously confused because she still thinks that her former roommate Jin Ho is gay. Jin Ho confesses that he’s straight (finally!). Gae In gets justifiably angry, but she puts her anger on hold as she hugs him.

Yoon Sung (played by Lee Min Ho) has another nightmare where he’s unable to save Na Na (played by Park Min Young), and he decides that he needs to see her right away to make sure she’s okay. At her apartment, Na Na also is tossing and turning with worry about Yoon Sung, so she goes to the roof to get some air. Yoon Sung shows up and angrily asks her why she’s out alone at 2 a.m. She returns his anger, asking why he makes people worry by not answering his phone. Rather than continuing this lover’s spat, Yoon Sung interrupts her with a kiss. It’s bittersweet because Yoon Sung will soon leave Na Na in an effort to protect her.

When Tan gets a hint of this situation, he’s terrified that Eun Sang will leave without letting him know, so he asks Eun Sang to meet him with her passport in hand.
