Let’s Drink – REVIEW –



I know, I know that my recap is incomplete, but that doesn’t mean I can’t review it.

Let’s drink is a silly drama that if you like food porn and alcohol then you’ll like this. I had a desire to drink and eat good food after every episode. The concept is cute were a newbie instructor comes to a private school to teach students who are studying for the civil servant exam. Ha Na (Park Ha Sun) gets brought in because she’s cheap after they hired the big shot Jin Jung Suk (Ha Seok Jin) to teach at their school. Through the mayhem of everything Ha Na and Jung Suk get closer.

I’m going to go more in depth in the podcast that will be up when I record with Natalia sometime next week. I’m not sure how I feel about the ending of this drama. It was a cute concept but it needed 1 extra episode. The 2 main leads were fantastic and I enjoyed the food, but I’m just not certain how I feel. It surrounds the drinking culture and a few reasons as to why someone would want to drink alone, and I’ll admit I’m one of those people.  I feel like had they cleaned up the ending a bit better it would have been better. Regardless, it was a cute drama and still worth the watch.

Let’s Drink Episode 11 Recap



This episode opens with Gong  Myung at home eating, drinking sake and listening to Ha Na’s lecture.

Ha Na can’t sleep and thinks about what happened between Jung Suk and herself. She comes to the conclusion that Jung Suk said what he did because he was drunk.

The next morning, Jung Suk has acknowledged his feelings for Ha Na and wonders if Ha Na is feeling uncomfortable because she thinks he was drunk. He is certain that it’s not the case and calls her. She picks up and wonders what he wants. He starts talking about last night and she promises to act like he didn’t say anything because he was intoxicated He is surprised and expected her to react differently.

Ha Na wonders if he might have actually meant it and thinks about it. She tells herself no to think too hard into it. She decided to work on questions then realise that she needs to get something on her work computers. She decided to go to work before Jung Suk gets there. While going to work she notices Gong Myung who’s studying and not really paying attention. She watches him get hit by a scooter.

Won Hae tells Jin Wong to take his time and that he’s already told his students and can schedule a makeup class at another time. When they walk in, Jung Suk asks about Ha Na. He’s told she doesn’t have class and then Won Hae inquiries to his date. Jung Suk tells him that he doesn’t need to report his reasoning to him.

Jung Suk wonders why Ha Na isn’t there and then wonders if she’s trying to play hard to get. He decides to plan a fancy date for her to make her feel better. He’s all gung-ho about it.

Ha Na is told that Gong Myung will be fine after a days rest and she’s relieved. She admits how worried she was and he tells her that he’s fine. She suggests he call his family and he tells her that he doesn’t have to call his mother since he’s not living with her and the guy who  caused the accident is paying the hospital bill anyways. She asks about his brother and he reminds her that he’s a bit of a bastard. She goes to leave and he tries to trick her into staying but she sees through so he just asks her to stay.

Dong Young is in the bathroom when notices that there is toilet paper. He wonders what to do when someone comes in. Jung Suk tells him that is no toilet paper in the other stall or paper towel as he needs them. He refuses to go get tissues as he needs to go to class. Dong Young flips out.

Chae Yeon text Gong Myung and before going to class she puts on lip gloss. He texts her back and apologises for not being able to make it that day. She goes to Ki Bum whose on the phone with his mother and asks about Gong Myung. He makes up some odd reason for Gong Myung to not come and about how it would make sense he’s worn out. Ki Bum asks if she put lipstick on and she refutes the claim and heads into class after Jung Suk. Ki Bum finds her pretty with lipstick on.

Dong Young arrives late much to Jung Suk’s annoyance. He sets up the camera and Ki Bum asks what happened to his other shock. He admits he used it to wipe himself and tells a brief explanation of what happened.

Ha Na brings in Gong Myung’s food and he offers to share. She tells him that she’s nursing him and he should rest. She yawns and he admits he wants to eat something else.

When she returns with ginseng chicken soup he tells her that she needs to eat something nutritious if she’s going to keep her energy up. She tells reminds him that he’s the one who needs energy, but he tells her that he’s working hard in hopes of being her boyfriend. She starts to worry but he tells her not to worry and that he knows that she only made the promise in hopes he’d study more. He tells her that he’s studying for himself and it’s the only way he can show her that he’s serious about her.

Kwon, an old friend of trio arrives and is greeted by  Ki Bum. They are what he’s studying and is told that everyone is studying for the same civil servant exam. Kwon thought it was odd, but Dong Young tells him that more people go into admin and there is a 128.3 to 1 chance of passing. This seems to take the wind out of Kwon’s sails.

Jin Yi, Won Hae and Jung Suk meet to discuss the schedule for  the following month. Jung Suk isn’t happy with his time slots and has them moved. Jin Yi asks if he’s so picky why he doesn’t plan it next time. Jung Suk thinks it’s an excellent idea. He goes into his office and they start complaining about him. He comes out and they are worried that he’s heard.

Gong Myung comes back with some drinks to find Ha Na asleep. He finds it cute that she’s fallen asleep. He watches her sleep and lays his head next to her. He goes to kiss her but stops before sitting up. He tells himself that it’s cheating and that he’ll work hard to pass for her sake.

Ki Bum goes to buy some books and bumps into Kwon. He is surprised that he didn’t as him for his exercise after 3 years of studies. He mentions that Kwon never liked competition which Kwon agrees. He goes to help him pick out a book but a bunch of books fall on him and he claims to be hurt and asks Kwon to help him back to the hostel. When they arrive Kwon complains about helping him and then Ki Bum reminds him what a social worker does.

Ha Na wakes up in bed to find Gong Myung working. She wonders how she got there and he mentioned that she must have been tired so he put her there. She goes to get water and across her cheeks are scrawled Super Radiant Super Teacher. As soon as she’s out of the room Gong Myung breaks out laughing.

Kwon meets up with Dong Young and Ki Bum. Dong Young tells him that he heard that he switched to social work. but Kwon switched again to real estate because all he has to do is show clients around here and there. He is super excited to go to the hostel to study. He ends up back at the hostel with police officers and Ki Bum as if he was in trouble. He admits that he got lost and suddenly all the memories of him getting lost came back to the 2 men. Kwon decided to switch to being a police officer. Ki Bum pushes him and takes him for a jog but he gets winded and he asks if he can really make it as a police officer. Finally, they sit down and try to figure out something he can go. He thanks them but leaves for the hostel. While thinking over Kwon, Dong Young gets a call from Gong Myung asking for his notes. Only then does he find out Gong Myung was in the hospital.

Gong Myung tells his friend not to come visit and hangs up just as Ha Na comes in with the humidifier. Gong Myung tells her to rest while he’s in the washroom but when his mother calls she picks up.

Jin Yi wonders if Min Ho is actually thinking about breaking up with her as he hasn’t called her. Jung Suk sees her leaves and mimics her asks who would like a man like that. He reminds himself that Ha Na does, then wonders why she hasn’t called him back. He texts her and when he puts his phone and is surprised by a call. He expects Ha Na but when his mother calls, he’s told that Gong Myung is in the hospital she reminds him to be mindful of the people around him. He promises to talk with him.

Ha Na is happy that Gong Myung’s brother is coming and he admits that he rather not see him. She admits that she’s curious as to how her brother is. They get into the elevator and Gong Myung walks her out. She tells him to go in and she can’t believe that he’s walking her out. He thanks her for being there with her and she admits she feels embarrassed that he took care of her all day. She goes to leave and he runs over to her and pulls her into a hug. He thanks her and admits that he was happy with her. He goes inside and she tells herself that she could be happy with someone like him because he’s nothing like Jung Suk.

Gong Myung gets back to the room to find Jung Suk there. Jung Suk acts the way he always in, telling him to rest and he can’t believe that he got into an accident. He was studying so well but then he had to cause trouble. Gong Myung tells him that they’re parents named him well and runs around to the other side of the bed. He tells Jung Suk that if he can’t be nice to the patient he should pay his allowance and leave. He goes to grab hi bag but Jung Suk pulls it away. Just then Ki Bum comes in.

Gong Myung tells him that Jung Suk is his brother and Ki Bum asks why he kept it a secret and he tells him that his brother didn’t want anyone finding out. Ki Bum agrees and tells him that it’s unfair that his brother got all the studying genes.

They are sitting in the waiting room when Dong Young comes. He complains about seeing premium trash. Ki Bum tries to shut Dong Young up but he doesn’t listen and tells Gong Myung all about Jung Suk. finally Ki Bum tells Dong Young that Jung Suk is Gong Myung’s brother and that shuts him up. Gong Myung tells him not to worry.

They got and bid farewell to Jung Suk. Jung Suk asks him not to call him brother and to not tells anyone about his being his brother they agree and when Ki Bum starts being rude he’s ushered out by Gong Myung. Jung Suk notices Ha Na’s watch and when Gong Myung comes back he asks about it. Gong Myung mentions that it’s his girlfriends and Jung Suk can’t believe it. He reminds him that he should be studying and it makes him pathetic. Gong Myung retorts that he’s certain that he’s never liked anyone and that’s why everyone calls him premium trash. He explains the idea behind it and it cuts Jung Suk hard. He tells him that since he’s premium trash then he should leave and not care about his brother. His brother agrees and Jung Suk leaves in a daze.

Chae Yeon continues thinking about Gong Myung all evening. Finally, she calls him and tells him that she’s going to stop tutoring him. She gives him a poor reason but once she’s hung up Ki Bum gets mad. Dong Young tells him not to tell her, Ki Bum doesn’t know what it would hurt. He tells her that Gong Myung got into a car accident because he was studying  while  walking.

Chae Yeon is on the roof thinking when Gong Myung calls her. He asks if she’s mad and she admits she heard everything. She blames herself for him getting hurt, but he tells her not to worry and he’s fine. He tells her that he’s studying and she makes sure that he’s ok and agrees to meet with him the following day. Once she hangs up she breaks down crying and apologises to Gong Myung.

Dong Young notices and wonders why she’s crying. He heads downstairs and bumps into Ki Bum. He asks if Chae Yeon was on the terrace because he heard she might be. Dong Young tells him no and ushers her away.

Gong Myung is studying when he notices Ha Na’s watch. He takes a moment to stare at it.

Ha Na is working hard but she keeps getting distracted . Gong Myung ends up texting Ha Na about the watch and promises to take care of it. He asks if she managed to remove the ring and she admits that she hadn’t been able too. He takes a picture and shows her his copy of the ring and tells her that it’s their couple ring. Ha Na gets up and goes to grab a beer. She smiles at the picture. When she backs out of her messages she notices Jung Suk contacted her.

Jung Suk is irritated that she didn’t contact him again and she texts him that she hasn’t heard his confession and to not contact her.

The next morning Jung Suk goes to fly his drone but Gong Myung’s words run through his head. He’s determined to not care what people think about him but once he lands his drone he thinks of Ha Na. He re-reads that texts and comes to the conclusion that he used to be ok being alone but now he wants to be with Ha Na. He wonders what he did to cause her to go cold and then he remembers everything. He suddenly is determined to win her back.

Ha Na is ready to start her day like nothing happened however Jung Suk is waiting for her.

Let’s Drink Episode 10 Recap



For a change, instead of opening up with Jung Suk out to eat, we have Ha Na having ramen while listening to music.

Jung Suk is driving Gon gMyung and he teases him for actually studying. Gong Myung tells him that he has a reason to pass now. When Jung Suk inquiries to the reason, Gong Myung tells him that it’s none of his business. Jung Suk gets Gong Myung to get out of his car so they don’t arrive together and when Gong Myung gets out he leaves the car door open and to bug his brother, he also opens the back passenger door.

Ha NA is walking to school and really doesn’t want to see Jung Suk that day. She tells herself that it’s not a sin to like him and she just has to get over him. She stops at a red light that Jung Suk pulls up to. He notices her and wonders why she’s distracted. Jin Yi’s words run through his mind. He is determined to get her to  give up on him. He blames her for wanting the unattainable and wonders if it’s his fault for being born so perfect.

Jung Suk walks into the office and Won Hae comes to see him. He tells him that he’s found a woman to introduce him to. He’s so excited that he’s found someone that he offers to set up the blind date. Jung Suk isn’t so sure about a blind date but after looking at Ha Na he agrees. Won Hae suggests meeting with her that day and Jung Suk begins to disagree but one look at Ha Na has him agreeing. He goes to his off, and Ha Na leaves. Jin Yi watches on sadly and glares at Jung Suk.

Jin Yi follows her out and asks if she’s ok because she seems a little down. Ha Na tells her that she’s fine and invites Jin Yi out for beer. Jin Yi believes that she’s pregnant this time and even brought a test before work. She tells Ha Na to wait while she takes it. Ha Na wishes her good luck. Jin Yi starts to cry and Ha Na asks if she got the 2 lines. Jin Yi comes out and tells her that she got her period. She comes to the conclusion that she has no chance of getting married

Jung Suk meets with the woman and takes freely with her and happily. They are both happy to meet someone from the same school. Jung Suk’s mind keeps returning to Ha Na. No matter what the woman tells him he reverts back to Ha Na and compares the two women.

Ki Bum and Gong Young happen upon Gong Myung at the restaurant. Ki Bum tells him that it’s odd that he’s studying while eating. He tells him that he’s studying hard with master and his friends inquire to who his master his. He directs them to Chae Yeon who’s standing in line. Dong Young admits that it’s hard to imagine that she’d help anyone, but Gong Myung tells them that it’s payback for him finding the pervert. Chae Yeon returns and wonders why he called Ki Bum and Gong Myung tells her that he didn’t call them. Ki Bum agrees and then asks him to come play some games with them. Gong Myung refuses citing his studies as the reason and Ki Bum tries to persuade him. Chae Yeon tells him that he should respect Gong Myung’s desire to study and pulls him away.

Ki Bum tells Dong Young that he can’t believe that Chae Yeon is telling Gong Myung to cut them out of his life. Dong Young reminds him that he can be very disruptive. Dong Young tells him that the real reason that he doesn’t like it is because he’s jealous because he doesn’t want Gong Myung and Chae Yeon to get close while studying. He claims to not care and slaps Dong Young’s head. This just proves to Dong Young that he does care.

Jin Yi and Ha Na goes out to drink. Jin Yi tells Ha Na that Min Oh had told her that it was a relief that she wasn’t pregnant. Ha Na inquires about her obsession of being married and Jin Yi admits that it’s because she was lonely growing up after her parents passed and her plans were to get married after college. She tells her that they should make a fresh break. Jin Yi will break up with Min Oh and Ha Na should forget about that guy. (Is it wrong that I want Jin Yi with Jin Woong?) Ha Na inquires about ‘that guy’ and Jin Yi finally admits to knowing that Ha Na likes Jung Suk and that she accidently told him about her feelings. Jin Yi reminds her about her that he went on the date even though he knew her feelings which proves that he doesn’t like her.

They leave the restaurant and Ha Na is crying. Jin Yi tells her that she should no longer cry over men and that they should live a happy life. Ha Na starts to agree but she stops short by crying. Jin Yi admits that she would love to go back time to before she met Min Oh and Ha Na agrees. So they go to a club to dance and then to a bar to drink and sing. Each time one of the girls starts to cry the other comforts her. It turns out that the girls are really good dancers.

Ki Bum tries to sleep but he can’t because he keeps thinking about Gong Myung and Char Yeon’s budding relationship.

Ha NA walks up at 8 am the next morning and when she notices the time she freaks out because she has a meeting with Won Hae at 8:30.

Won Hae is waiting for Ha Na but at 8:40 he gets frustrated and gets up to leave. He bumps into Jin Woong and admits that he finds that day’s outfit a little unnerving. Jin Woong goes off in his impression and then Won Hae tears into him about losing 18 students. He mentions that he won’t complain because his class has more people than Ha Na but he needs to increase his numbers. Won Hae leaves and tells Jin Woong to send Ha Na and Jung Suk to his office when they arrive.

Ha Na comes in and he yells at her for being late. She apologises and he smells the alcohol on her breath. He tells her that he can’t believe that she got drunk and that’s why she’s late. He tells her that there was no increase in her class size and warns her that if she doesn’t increase her class size she’ll be out. Just then Jung Suk comes in and Won Hae inquires about his date. Won Hae ignores Ha Na and probes Jung Suk about the date. Ha Na feels uncomfortable and leaves. Once Ha Na leaves, Jung Suk clams up about the date and the possible future.

Ha Na gets a phone call from her mother requesting another 300,000 won because of an accident at work that ruined a customer’s silk blouse. Ha Na inquires if she doesn’t have even 300, 000 won. She tears into her mother about her working part time since college to pay off her debts and even now she’s paying for her living expenses. He mother apologises and Ha Na starts to say that she wishes she was born into a rich family but she stops herself. She tells her mother that she’ll send the money and hangs up. (I half expected to see Jung Suk in the background.)

Ha Na preps herself for class but walks into the wrong lecture hall and Dong Young mentions as much. She leaves apologises and when Jung Suk arrives she leaves quickly. Jung Suk asks what’s going on and Dong Young tells him that Ha Na came into the wrong room by mistake and wonders if she’s half asleep. Jung Suk puts it up that she’s distracted because the guy she likes is seeing someone else but that doesn’t stop him from worrying about her.

Dong Young and Ki Bum go to the cafeteria and notices Gong Myung sitting across from Chae Yeon. Dong Gon mentions that he has other plans and really wonders if he’s going to cut Ki Bum out of his life just because Chae Yeon told him to. He sits next to them and Chae Yeon asks what he’s doing. Ki Bum wants to spend some time with Gong Myung. Chae Yeon tells him that they should go and Though there is a mild tug-of-war, Gong Myung apologises to Ki Bum and follows after Chae Yeon.

Jin Woong is in class when he realises they haven’t taken a break. He dismisses his students for the break and calls the hospital. He’s told that his mother is looking for him and is looking a little worse. They ask if he can come right away when he admits he’s in the middle of class and will come once it’s done. He tells his mother to wait a little longer and goes back to teaching. His phone keeps ringing and so he shuts it off. After class, he turns back on his phone and is shocked the hospital called so much. He gets a text that his mother has passed away and he needs to call them ASAP. (That is not how you break the news. When my father passed away we got a call telling my mother to bring a driver with no other details until we got there.)

Ki Bum is watching Hong Myung and Chae Yeon studying. Gong Young comes up behind him and asks what he’s doing. He teases Ki Bum about being jealous but Ki Bum denies it. Dong Young calls him a liar and Ki Bum makes up an excuse about being worried and will go back studying.

Jung Suk goes to the restaurant with his date and she mentions that he didn’t seem to enjoy the movie. He admits that it wasn’t to his taste. He gets distracted about Ha Na again and the woman notices. She asks if something is wrong but he assures her that nothing is wrong.

Won Hae comes to invite them out to drink. He notices that Jung Suk isn’t there and remembers he has a date. He tells the women that he’s happy about Jung Suk going out and admits that it’s his sister-in-law. He also tells them that his sister-in-law’s only fault is that she goes crazy when she’s mad.

Jung Suk tells his date about drinking alone and she admits that she finds it lonely. He thinks of Ha Na’s response of understanding when he told her about it. He admits that he doesn’t think that they would work out because he keeps thinking of another woman. The Woman goes to leave but then goes batshit crazy on him. This scene is hilarious and should be watched.

Jin Woong comes in and excuses himself from going out to drink. He tells Won Hae that his mother just passed away and everyone is in shock.

Ki Bum and Dong Young go to eat. Gong Young inquires to why Ki Bum wanted to drink and he tells him that it’s just because. Ki Bum inquires about Gong Myung and Dong Young tells him that Gong Myung is studying. Ki Bum tries to call him but there is no answer. He gets frustrated and Dong Young asks why he needs him. Dong Youn tells Ki Bum to admit that he has feelings for Chae Yeon. Ki Bum offers him 10,000 won to calls Gong Myung.

Gong Myung is studying when he notices Chae Yeon’s nose starts to bleed. He tells her to get some rest but she doesn’t want to. He gets Dong Young’s call and goes to answer it when Chae Yeon stops him. He inquires as to Chae Yeon’s motivation and she admits that she couldn’t get a job so she came to the school She is determined to pass the test and move on. Gong Myung tells her that she’s very persistent and he admits that he likes that about her. He goes to take the phone call. He tells Dong Young that he can’t come and when Ki Bum asks why  and Gong Myung doesn’t give him the reason just assures him there is on. Gong Myung re-listens to the recording of Ha Na.

The teachers go to see Jin Woong and are shocked how suddenly it happened. While in the other room, they hear about Jin Woong’s life from the other people talking. They find out that he got a divorce the previous year and even went to see his mother every day.

Ha Na goes to see him and inquires to why he didn’t tell them. He admits that even when he’s giving interesting lectures he loses students. He didn’t want his sad personal life to become public. He admits to having got a call half way through class but he didn’t go and he regrets that his mother had to pass away alone. He also admits that even if he turned back time, he still wouldn’t have left class. Ha Na tries to comfort him.

Ha Na talks to her phone about how she’s feeling guilty about being so distracted by a guy who doesn’t even like her. Just then her mother calls and she apologises for earlier. He mother admits that she’s the one who needs to apologises because she doesn’t do anything for Ha Na. Ha Na promises to focus on getting successful so that She doesn’t have to worry about money.

Won Hae returns to the funeral home and tells Jin Woong that he’ll be staying the night. He doesn’t what him to and wants him to go home to his family but Won Hae doesn’t listen He tells him to perk up and goes to clean up. Jin Woon g is touched but Won Hae’s actions.

Jung Suk is out to drink solo when he starts to think about Ha Na. He wonders if he might like her but can’t accept that. He’s determined to not think about Ha Na, but no matter what his thoughts stray to her. He ends up drinking way too much.

On his way home he hallucinates and imagines Ha Na in his car with him. He tells the imaginary Ha Na he doesn’t like her.

A very drunk Jung Suk goes to see Ha Na and requests an apology. When she asks why he tells her that he’s Jung Suk but she’s made him think of her. She doesn’t understand and goes to walk away. He pulls her into a hug and tells her that he likes her.

Let’s Drink Episode 9 Recap



We get the mandatory food porn at the beginning of the show with Jung Suk eating.

Jin Yi (Hwang Woo Seul Hye) goes to get Ha Na (Park Ha Sun) at the Han river. She asks what made her drink so much and Ha Na tells her that she was upset. Jin Yi wants to take Ha Na home but Ha Na doesn’t want to be alone.

They go to Jin Yi’s place to drink more and Jin Yi can’t believe that Jung Suk just left her there. Ha Na admits to her friend that the worst thing is that she has come to like Jung Suk. She tells her that she first thought he was just trash but the more she got to know him the more she wanted to be acknowledged by him. She ended up asking him and that’s what led her to being left on the bridge.

Jung Suk can’t believe Ha Na mistook him for having his actions for him having affection for her. He starts to regret leaving Ha Na on the bridge and then chastises himself for it.

Ha Na goes to call Jung Suk but Jin Yi stops her. She wants to ask him to like her. Jin Yi finds that she’s crazy and she asks for her hands to be tied so she doesn’t call him . The next morning she wakes up completely disorientated and thinks she’s kidnapped. She tries to escape and Jin Yi wakes up. She removes the bag from her head and tells her what happened.

Ki Bum and Dong Young are eating when Ki Bum gets a text from Chae Yeon. He doesn’t understand what it is about and says she should follow her own advice. Chae Yeon comes in and tells him that it is to apologise for what she accused him of and not keeping the fact that he was the idiot a secret. He brushes her off and she wishes him well on the upcoming test.

Once they leave, Dong Young asks Ki Bum if he really doesn’t have any lingering feeling for Chae Yeon. He tells him that he was only temporarily crazy at the time and doesn’t need sure a wish washy person. Dong Young inquires as to what makes her that way and Ki Bum starts to talk about her hair and the way she parts it. Dong Young is convinced her likes her. Ki Bum refutes again and this time, he talks about her diet. Dong Young tells him that he has it hard before leaving. Once alone, Ki Bum looks at his phone and smiles.

Jin Yi and Ha Na were eating and she asks why her hands were tied. Jin Yi tells her it was to stop calling him. Ha Na suddenly blanched and asked who she was trying not to call. Jin Yi tells her that she didn’t tell her and ha Na seems relieved. They start talking about the wedding and Ha Na remembers she needs to go help with the mock exam. She runs away and Jin Yi wonders if pretending to not know she liked Jung Suk was the best idea.

She moderates the exam and Gong Myung is taking the mock exam. Half way through he asks for a new answer sheet and passes her back on with the note that she looks tired. After the exam, he runs after her and she asks how the exam went. He asks if it’s because she wants him to hurry up so they can be together. She snaps and him and tells him that because she’s let him talk that way he seems to have forgotten she his teacher. She tells him that he should either study or get a job because the academy isn’t his playground and people put their life on the lines for the chance he has. She walks away leaving a shocked Gong Myung.

Jung Suk is getting ready for the wedding and wonders what he did to make Ha Na mistake him as being interested. He decides to try and show her that he’s out of her league by dress to the 10s. So he picks out his most expensive items.

They arrive at the wedding and Jin Yi inquiries to the amount of money. Jin Woong tells here that he’s put enough. He puts on an impression and Won Hae mentions that he doesn’t do impressions outside of work. Jin Woong admits that he has a few lined up for that evening. Jung Suk arrives and Won Hae compliments him. When Won Hae mentions that he looks like he’s wearing name brand things and Jung Suk mentions that he loves anything high-quality including women.

Ki Bum takes a look at his exam and can’t believe that he did so poorly. Gong Myung admits that he didn’t really pay attention to the questions that he was answering. Dong Gong comes in super happy because he passed. Gong Myung asks if he’ll tutor him but he tells him that he has no time. Gong Myung leaves and Dong Gon asks what his make was. Ki Bum tells him 255 and Dong Gong thinks it’s good for a beginner. Ki Bum blows up that it was his mark and walks away. Dong Gong half-heartedly apologises but Ki Bum won’t hear it.

Gong Myung re-listens to the recording on his phone and is determined to get down to studying.

Jung Suk meets with Ha Na and she asks if he said those things because she was there. He admits that he did. She asks him to forget about everything that she said and apologises for the inconvenience. He asks if she thinks it’s a drama and that she’ll get her own cinderella story. She leaves really hurt.

Gong Myung goes and sits with Chea Yeon and asks if she did well. She tells him that she did and she’s determined to get out of there. He is happy that she’s back to normal and he was worried she would be traumatised after the event. She tells him that it solidified her want to get out of there. She sends him to go study and he admits that he wants to but he doesn’t know how. He asks her once again to tutor him and automatically assumes it’s a no before leaving. She watches his back sadly as he goes.

Gong Myung is having some water when she comes over and agrees to tutor him. She tells him that she’ll tutor him and that he has to do what she tell him to and he agrees.

We’re back at the wedding and Jin Woong is MCing. Won Hae is complaining about it taking so long. Jung Suk continues being awkward and telling them he only likes the best and Ha Na continues to feel hurt. This scene is so awkward that I would suggest watching it if you like the cringe effect. Eventually, Jung Suk leaves and Won Hae wonders why Jung Suk brings everything back to women that day.

Dong Gong comes out with chopsticks determined to eat what Ki Bum doesn’t. Ki Bum is still a little sore about him passing. When ki Bum leaves he admits that he’s jealous and Dong Gong thinks that he should be.

Gong Myung meets up with Chae Yeon at the bibimbap stand. He is amazed that she can eat and study at the same time. She passes him a pack of cue cards and tells him to study. He has difficulty eating and studying but witnesses her having no issue. They walk to the bookstore and she continues to move around obstacles with no issues. Once at the store, Chae Yeon sends Gong Myung to get some workbooks. When he turns around he notices that one of the staff members might cause an accident. When the books start to fall he shields her from the falling books. She makes sure he’s fine and he tells her that he’s just happy that she’s not hurt. He goes to the clerk to ask fo the books her was looking for.

At the dinner, Won Hae asks about Jung Suk’s ideal women. He describes her as a well-educated women who makes 6 figures and has a supermodel figure. Everyone thinks it’s too much. Ha Na excuses herself under the pretense of work. Jin Yi follows her out an makes sure that she’s notleavingn because she mad. Ha Na doesn’t know what she’s talking about and leaves.

Jin Yi bumps into Jung Suk and tears into him. She accidently admits Ha Na’s feelings for him. She tells him that he doesn’t need to go on and on about her not being his type because she knows it already. Since she was drunk she wanted to know if he liked her back. She tells him not to tell Ha Na because she isn’t even supposed to know about her feelings. This leaves a confuses Jung Suk.

Ha Na gets on the bus in a daze and looks at her wallet she agrees that he is way out of her league and has decided to give up.

Ki Bum bumps into Dong Gon who he starts to tease again out of Jealousy and he drags him into the library. Chae Yeon comes to give Gong Myung an energy drink but he ignores her. She gets close when he turns his head. She hands him the drink ad goes back to her desk because looking over her shoulder at him.

At the wedding, everyone complains that Jung Suk left. Jin Yi gets irritated because of him and calls him bad luck. The 2 men assume it’s because she wants to get married but she leaves. Jin Woong tells Won Hae that Jin Yi’s boyfriend seems to be pushing the wedding off. Won Hae wants to go bad mouth her boyfriend but Jin Woong gets calls away because his mother is asking for him.

Ji Woong goes to the hospital and his mother asks why he’s lost so much weight and asks if it’s because of the divorce. He tells her not to worry about him and she admits that she wants to go home to cook him meals. He tells her that if she gets a little better than he’ll have her home. He hugs his mother tightly

Dong Gong goes to a restaurant and wants to buy a chicken to celebrate however he finds out that no one has sent his allowance. He calls his sister to tell her about the mock exams and she realises that she didn’t send the money because of their mother falling. since everyone was pitching in to help with her bills they forgot. He tells him that he’s fine.

He goes to the roof and bumps into Ki Bum. He gets teased and Dong Gong tells him that he’s envious of Ki Bum. Ki Bum suggests a switch. He’ll give him his parents if he can have the high test mark. Dong Gong leaves and goes to his room where there is a post-it about his rent. He cries when he sees his family sending him money.

Ki Bum wonders if he should really give up. He leans over the railing and sees Gong Myung and Chae Yeon. He wonders what’s going on and watches their interactions.

Gong Myung bumps into Ha Na and asks why she’s there. She admits that she had things to do at the academy. She asks what he’s still doing out late and he admits that he was studying. He apologises for playing around and she was right because he wasn’t taking it seriously. She admits she didn’t want to hurt his feelings but he tells her that it was more motivating than anything else. She leaves on her bus and they wave goodbye.

We’re back at the beginning with Jung Suk drinking alone. He thinks over everything that he found out that day and wonders why Ha Na couldn’t tell him to his face that she liked him.

Ha Na sits in her room drinking alone and we have her voice overs tells use that drinking alone allows you to remember memories best kept hidden. She remembers all of the bad memories she has with Jung Suk. She tells herself that she just needs to know her place. She gets a series of positive texts from Gong Myung while makes her cry because she finds herself to be something opposite to what he thinks her to be.

Let’s Drink Episode 8 Recap



Jung Suk (Ha Seok Jin) comes in and tells Gong Myung to turn down the volume since it sounds like he’s having a party. Gong Myung turns the computer towards him and shows him the recording of the show. Gong Myung inquiries about his relationship with Ha Na and he tells him that there isn’t on. Gong Myung doesn’t believe him and Jung Suk tells him that he was only with her to help her out for his joint class. Gong Myung accepts the answer and Jung Suk asks why he’s so interested and he brushes it off to being interested in his brother’s life. Jung Suk tells him to stop wasting energy and leaves. Gong Myung is happy that he got scared for no reason.

Jung Suk goes into his room and looks into the mirror he remembers the kiss and chastises himself for kissing such a low-quality woman

Ha Na (Park Ha Sun) is at home looking at the comments on the picture and smiles. She turns on her phone and then starts to asks how she’s supposed to face him. Her phone replies about a beef soup and she gets mad at it. She goes to bed and her bear falls  down and taps her lips. She flings it away and wonders what she’s going to do. We get a split screen with Jung Suk telling himself that it was nothing.

The next morning Ha Na catches the same elevator as Jung Suk. She mentions the incident and he awkwardly asks which one. She mentions their lips accidently met and he tells her that it very insignificant to him. He asks if it’s bothering her and she tells him that it’s not. They both seem a little irked. When they get to the 9th floor there is a lovely awkward scene involving leaving an elevator.

Jin Woong comes in with a new impression that Ha Na places right away. Jin Yi (Hwang Woo Seul Hye) tells him to takes his seat. Jin Woong congratulates her on her web show and asks how she got Jung Suk on. Jin Yi agrees that she was also going to ask her. She couldn’t believe he came on and even danced. Jin Yi jumps on the bandwagon of Jung Suk having feelings for Ha Na. Jin Woong tells Ha Na that is Jin Yi is right he’s excited. Ha Na tells them to knock it off.

Jung Suk comes in and Won Hae is soon to follow. Won Hae inquires as to who he wants to take with him to the special lecture over the weekend. He tells him that it will in help promote them. Won Hae turns to Ha Na and tells her that since Jung Suk has already helped her a lot then she won’t be going. Ha Na tells Won Hae that she wouldn’t dream of going and gets up to get the morning coffee. Jung Suk’s eyes follow her until Jin Yi tries to sell him on using her while Jin Woong does the same. Jung Suk leaves and Won Hae digs into Jin Woong. Jung Suk is in his office and he can’t believe that everyone really wants to come with him but he’ll make his own choice. He looks over at Ha Na and wonders if she has no ambitions. He also wonders how she’s the last teacher into Noryangjin and he doesn’t understand why she’s so nice. He wants to show her that nice people do succeed but things are still awkward surrounding the kiss. He opens his blinds and quickly shuts them again when Ha Na looks at him.

Ki Bum, Gong Myung and Dong Young are in Jin Yi’s lecture. Ki Bum starts talking about how Jin Yi was extra sexy that day. His eyes lay on Chae Yeon and he goes into attack mode. Gong Myung silences him and asks Chae Yeon if she would tutor him. Ki Bum tells him that he needs better choices than to have her tutor him. Chae Yeon tells him that she’s not interested in it either since a friend of Ki Bum is not a friend of her. Chea Yeon leaves and Dong Young asks Ki Bum why he hates her so much. Ki Bum doesn’t have a reason he just does. (Dude you’re acting like a 5-year-old with a crush.

Ha Na returns to the office to find Jin Yi with her head on the ground. She asks what going on and is told that she’s down because she’s not going to the lecture. Jin Yi rips into him and he tells her that he’s also sad that he can’t go. Ha Na is surprised that neither of them are going and Won Hae comes in and tells her that she’s the lucky person who is going to be going to the lecture with Jung Suk. Jin Woong mentions that if Jung Suk keeps helping her then he might really have feelings for Ha Na. Jun Yi leaves followed shortly by Jin Woong and Ha Na sits there confused because she had no intentions of going.

Ha Na is at the bus stop and starts to wonder about Jung Suk’s feelings. She chastises herself about thinking like that and she hears Gong Myung call for her. He offers to walk her home but she wants him to study. He asks why she didn’t tell him about her web show and was sad that he only saw it later. She wanted him to study and not to be distracted. He mentions about working hard to be her boyfriend and she punishes him a little. Gong Myung tells her that she shouldn’t get close to Jung Suk because there is something about him that irks him. Ha Na tells her not to worry because since he’s the best of the best in Noryangjin, he exists on another plane of existence. Her bus comes and they go their separate ways.

Ki Bum is on the roof putting out his laundry when Chae Yeon comes out. He asks what she’s doing and she tells him that staying in shape is important when studying. He leaves and as soon as he does, Chae Yeon’s stalker appears. She notices something but when she turns around she finds that door a little ajar. She goes back to her stretches.

Ha Na is getting ready for the special lecture that and wonders what she should wear. He pulls out an outfit and sees her bear in the back. She tells it not to gets it wrong that she wants to look good for the students and not Jung Suk. She gets a call from Jung Suk and is surprised where he is.

She tells him that she didn’t have to pick her up but he tells her that he’s doing it for his class. If she was late it would tarnish his reputation. She finds the view pretty and rolls down the window. He notices and takes down the top. He tells her that since she was enjoying the view, she can enjoy it better like this. He tells her that she’ll give a better lecture if she’s relaxed and tells her to enjoy the view. Ha Na notices the wine caves are near there and explains to Jin Woong what it is. She asks if he’d be interested in going since he likes alcohol and he tells her that he doesn’t like crowded places. He reminds her that they are there to work and she pulls out her preparations to review. He smiles at how organised the are.

Screenshot 2016-09-28 12.11.15.png

They arrive to find out that they were cancelled and when Jung Suk tears into the director he’s assured that Won Hae was told. Due to the electricity problems, emergency construction had to happen. Jung Suk tells Ha Na not to worry about anything and he’ll make sure they’re still compensated for the waste of a day. She tells him that she’s actually more disappointed because she’s worked so hard on the lecture and she wanted to show him a good lecture.

Dong Young is stealing Ramen when other students come in. They can’t believe what happened. They show Dong Young the post of Chae Yeon. Dong Young show it to Ki Bum and Gong Myung. He tells them that they were originally uploaded to a sit for upskirt shots and then shared around. They surmise that it’s probably someone who’s been dumped by her which is quite a few. They wonder if Chae Yeon knows about it and if they should report it. Chae Yeon comes over and asks what they’re talking about. She takes Dong Young’s phone and is shocked at what she sees.

Jung Suk brings Ha Na to the wine cellar since she wanted to see it. He tells her it’s to cheer her up since she was down and she needs to be in a good mood to give a good lecture. She thanks him and he tells her that he’s doing it for his joint class. (Liar!!) They go in and eventually Ha Na gets gold so Jung Suk tells her to put on his blazer. She only puts it on partway he finishes the process. She thanks him and he puts it up to the class again. Once her back is turned he admits that he’s cold but they continue on.

Chae Yeon comes to see the Ki Bum nd the phone who took the pictures is the same model as Ki Bum. Ki Bum tells her that he’s not the only person with this type of phone. Dong Young and Gong Myung tell her that the person who posted the pictures has a huge grudge against her for rejecting him and it’s not Ki Bum. Chae Yeon tells them that she did reject Ki Bum and we get to see that little experience , Chae Yeon throws out Ki Bum’s love letter and someone finds it and posts it to the forum. Dong Young comes and shows him and he thinks Chae Yeon did it. He confronts her and she tells him that it’s only natural that people hate roaches. He promises to hate her forever. He tells her that it’s not him and she doesn’t believe him and swears she’ll find evidence.

Jin Woong meets Won Hae for hiking. When Jin Woong asks why he admits he doesn’t want to be at home with his in-laws.Won Hae tells him how his in-laws were lecturing him about the academy and he just wanted a day off. They go hiking but Jin Woong turns into a pack mule. Won Hae feels so alive without his in-laws pestering him because of work. However, no  matter what Jin Woong says Won Hae brings it back to work.

At the wine cave, Ha Na and Jung Stastetse some wine. She finds it quite tasty but can’t read the label. Jung Suk translates it with his phone to red rose. She offers him to taste but he has to drive so he refuses. They find out that they have a similar taste in wine and when she goes for a high five he finds it tacky, but when she feels dejected he gives her a high five. She contemplates buying some but she sees the price and decides not to. She goes to the bathroom and Jung Suk checks the price and finds 30,000 won (30 usd) not that bad since he’s bought wine for 300,000.

Once outside, Jung Suk gives her the wine and tells her that she can drink it when she has time. He says it’s to help with the quality of the class. She thanks him and offers to take him out to drink. She tells him that she’s so grateful and would want to take him out to drink. She explains that if he feels under appreciated than it would have a negative effect on the teamwork aspect and his ability to manage the lectures. (Speaking his language now Ha Na) He agrees to go drinking with her because she makes a very good point.

Ki Bum is trying to figure out how to prove his innocents while Dong Young stares. He’s always wanted to meet the idiot in love and didn’t know it was his friend. He teases Ki Bum who lashes out. Gong Myung breaks up the fights and goes to do his online course. Gong Myung waits for the elevator with Chae Yeon. When the first one is full Chae Yeon goes to take the stairs. When Gong Myung notices she’s not there he gets an idea. He follows up the stairs and finds the creep who posted the pictures of Chae Yeon. She comes own the stairs and recognises the guy.

Won Hae enjoyed the hike and Jin Woong agrees. He tells him that it was nice to get away from his in-laws and work. He tells Jin Woong he doesn’t know what it’s like and Jin Woong assures him he does. His impressions slipped out because he feels like he’s at work. He apologises and his alarm goes off early and he leaves. Won Hae pouts and mutter that he feels lonely.

Ha Na and Jung Suk sit down for a nice meal of shrimp. She says that it’s an honour that she gets to drink with him. She admits that she also like to drink alone and he admits that he saw her pictures on Instagram. They find out that they drink alone for the same reasons. She tells him that she’s not a master like him because she can’t go to a restaurant and drink alone. He tells her that life’s too short to care what people think. She agrees and feels like she has a lot to learn. She takes a shrimp and has problems holding it because of the heat. Jung Suk shells it for her and gives it back. She’s touched by the action.

Chae Yeon and Jung Suk come out of the police station and he’s glad that it’s over. With the culprit caught they can get the photos taken down. Chae Yeon suddenly breaks down and cries, but she doesn’t know why. (Coming down from an adrenaline high probably.) Gong Myung tells her to be more careful about how she rejects people. She tells him that she doesn’t feel like she needs to be. He warns her about all the psychos in the world. Chae Yeon tells him that she’ll never forget what he did. He tells her that she can forget so long as she apologises to Ki Bum.

Ki Bum is grateful that Gong Myung cleared his name but it strengthens his resolve to hate her. When he’s in the bathroom two guys come in and are talking about Chae Yeon’s pictures. They kind of wish that they don’t find the guy who’s taking them. Ki Bum leaves and comes back with a bucket of water. He throws it at them and reminds them that the pictures were illegally obtained and sharing them is illegal and they should delete them.

Jin Woong goes to visit his mother in the hospital. She doesn’t recognise him at first but when he goes to put the flowers in a vase she asks him where her daughter-in-law was. He tells his mother that he’s gotten a divorce and asks if she remembers. He decides that it’s best to forget that. He gets her to lie down so he can give her a message. He looks at his mother and fight back tears as he messages her legs.

Screenshot 2016-09-28 13.52.40.png

Ha Na goes to the bathroom and tells herself that she didn’t know she would like drinking with him so much. She wonders why he’s being so nice and even though he says it’s to manage the class better she’s not so sure. She thinks back to all the nice times they had together. She comes to the conclusion that he must like her.

We get Jung Suk’s voice over about drinking alone and how it and help up forget the bad of the day. Drinking alone gives the illusion of having a friend. We see Won Hae drinking alone and irritated that no one from home has called to check up on him, but he doesn’t know why they would.

Jung Suk wonders why he would be drinking with a women that night. She comes back and someone bumps into her and she nearly falls on Jung Suk. She apologises and tells her after the last accidently kiss. She suddenly falls silents and he tells her that it’s ok to repeat the same mistake then goes around and kisses her. Sadly, it was just a drunken hallucination and he asks why she’s raised her head.

Screenshot 2016-09-28 14.05.57.png

On the way back, she asks why he doesn’t have a girlfriend and he tells her that he doesn’t want anything distracting him from his work. She tells him that he got mad when he thought she had a boyfriend. She asks if he was jealous. He doesn’t believe her but he starts stuttering. She asks if she likes her since she was taking care of her all day. He tells her it’s for the joint class but she mentions that doesn’t make sense. He kicks her out of the car and tells her to get some fresh air to clear her head.

Jung Suk gets back in the car and talks aloud like a crazy person about her getting it wrong and he could never like a woman like that.

Ha Na is on the bridge drinking. She remembers that Jung Suk told her to drink the wine to celebrate but instead she’s drinking it when she got dumped. She wonders what she wanted to hear from him and then wonders if she’s the one who likes him.

Let’s Drink Episode 7 Recap



Gong Myung steps out of the shower and looks at his body. He fawns over his own muscles. (Yes I wrote this sentence just to use this screenshot I took.)

Screenshot 2016-09-27 13.29.50.png

Gong Myung comes out and Jung Suk (Ha Seok Jin) throws papers at him. He tells him their toll fees and that he’s noticed that the mileage on the car skyrocketed. Jung Suk asks if he thought he wouldn’t notice if he filled up the tank. Gong Myung tells him that it’s wrong for him to have a car he doesn’t use so it’d be fine if his only brother uses it. Jung Suk tells him that if he wants to use a car then he should by one. Every time Jung Suk makes a point he pokes Gong Myung temple. He gets mad and tells his older brother that he’s not a weakling anymore. Jung Suk pulls him into a headlock and reminds him that he has no intentions of letting him stay there long.

Ha Na (Park Ha Sun) is pulling out her mattress when Gong Myung arrives. She asks what he’s going there and he admits that he was worried after she didn’t answer her phone. She tells him that since she was bringing her furniture out to dry she hasn’t had time to check it. He offers to help but she wants him to study. Finally, she concedes to him helping her.

Once inside she tries to get him to go study but he tells her that he’s already had a fight with his brother so she can’t lecture him. She asks if he has a bad relationship with his brother. He tells her that his older brother always looks down at him and insults him. He wonders if his brother doesn’t know that works hurt. She agrees that words hurt and thinks of Jung Suk’s last words to her. He decides to clean instead of thinking about Jung Suk and he starts to skate on rags. She thinks it’s a good idea and does it as well but slides into the splits he helps her up after laughing.

They take a break outside and he admits that he’s glad that she’s perked up. She tells him that she just needs to brush this off and get more students in her class. He tells her that his goal is to be her boyfriend. She tells him that he should be studying. He tells her that it’s not like he doesn’t try it’s just that he has no motivation. She tells him that she’ll grant him one wish if he passed.He tells her that she’ll be his girlfriend and then has her record it. She only says that she’ll consider dating him. He suddenly wants to finish the work they have so he can study. She wonders if it was a bad idea and then thinks that he won’t be interested in his old teacher once he passes.

Screenshot 2016-09-27 13.51.04.png

Jung Suk is at a restaurant drinking Sangria and sees a couple who are touchy feely. He thinks back to Ha Na and is certain that she’s that way with her boyfriend. He believes that she doesn’t have time to date anyone and blames that for the reason she can’t plan her classes efficiently.

Monday starts and Ha Na tells Jin Yi (Hwang Woo Seul Hye) what happened. While walking Ha Na loses her show and goes back to put it on. Jung Suk arrives and nearly hits her. He blames her head being in the wrong place to lose her shoe and waves them away. (Someone is in a bad mood. Jealous maybe?) Jin Yi can’t believe what he did because he should apologise when he nearly hits someone not yell at them. Ha Na tells her that it’s probably because he’s mad at her for fainting and ruining the classes image.

Ha Na goes to a secluded area and talks to google. Her phone tells her that there is a saying for hard times, it’s that suffering in a necessary ingredient for the bread of tomorrow. She talks sweetly to her phone and Jung Suk overhears. He thinks that she’s talking to her boyfriend, which isn’t the case. She runs to him and apologises for messing up ad promises to not do it again. He tells her that he feels like her mind is elsewhere and he doesn’t know if he can trust her.

Dong Young comes in to ask for some toothpaste from Ki Bum to find him studying. Ki Bum tells him that he’s going to become the grandson that his grandmother can be proud of. Dong Young is encouraged by that and takes some toothpaste before leaving. Ki Bum is working and gets ‘distracted’ by the mess on his desk. He decides to get up and cleans it, then makes his bed…Then clips his nails.

Dong Young comes out to have lunch to find Ki Bum cleaning the fridge. He tells him that the fridge was dirty and it was bothering him too much to focus. Dong Young tells him that he’s making up excuses not to study. Dong Young asks about the spicy tuna to be told that Ki Bum threw it out. He can’t believe him and tells him to stop being a nuisance if he isn’t going to study.

Jin Yi is putting on lipstick when she smudges it. She grabs tissues from Jin Woong’s desk and he comes in doing another impression. Jin Woong takes his place when Jung Suk and Ha Na come in. Jin Woong’s phone goes off which sets Jung Suk off. He tells him to change the ringtone.

Ha Na goes to the lecture hall to find it nearly empty. After class Won Hae digs into her about what she caused. She apologises and he tells her to do whatever it takes to change the student’s mind. She is forced to do an online class to help with it. Jung Suk walks away with Won Hae following.

The trio are taking Jin Woong class and Jin Woong notices that Ki Bum fell asleep. He wakes him loudly. Gong Myung  chastises Ki Bum for coming to class if he’s going to sleep. Ki Bum tells him that he came to study and just happened to fall asleep. Ki Bum goes off to study and Dong Young asks what they are going to do with him. Ki Bum wants to study hard but he isn’t. Gong Myung tells him that he’s also going to study hard. Dong Young inquires if his plan wasn’t to waste a year away from his mother. He tells him that he has a reason to pass now. As he leaves he tells Chae Yeon that he’ll be studying well. She wonders what’s up with him. Someone secretly takes picture of Chae Yeon.

Jin Yi tells ushers Ha Na to her desk and tells her she heard what happened and Jin Woong finds that the students are unfair since she fainted once. Jung Suk comes in siding with the students and tells her that is she can’t stay focused the students won’t trust her. She asks why she keeps saying that. He tells them that Ha Na is dating someone since he talking with him on the phone but Jin Yi mentions that she’s a serious single person and Ha Na tells him it’s a student. Jin Yi remember’s her apartment getting flooded and a student helping her. He tells her that it’s still not alright for her to drink with students.

Screenshot 2016-09-27 14.43.00.png

He goes back to his office happy that it wasn’t her boyfriend. (You totally like her) He tells himself that no one would like someone like her and when he looks up he sees Ha Na seething at him. He closes the blinds and wonders what wrong with her. He opens them to find her still glaring and he doesn’t know why she’s so mad since she doesn’t have a boyfriend. He laughs and his arm slides off  the chair’s arm.

Gong Myung goes to study and finds everyone listening to Jung Suk’s lectures. He goes to search for another Korean History teacher but gets distracted by baseball states. Dong Young comes to check on him and finds that he’s been doing everything else but. He tells him that he doesn’t want to study which is why he’s browsing the web.

Ha Na isn’t certain what to do, and Jin Yi finds that it’s unfair that he asks her the day of. Jin Yi shows her the video of her class which she did Yoga stretches and then switched to Jin Woong’s who did cooking. Jin Yi tells her that if she could she would totally be a guest on her show. Ha Na tells her that it’s ok. Jung Suk is leaving when Jin Yi tries to get him to be on the show but he refuses. Ha Na tells Jin Yi that she will be good.

Ha Na is wondering what to do when she gets a text from Gong Myung. She considers asking him what to do but she doesn’t want to bother him. He tells her that there are a lot of things that he would love to do but he’s going to focus on studying. That gives her an idea.

Gong Myung is in the library struggling to study. He pulls out his phone and listened to Ha Na’s recording. He fantasies of  asking her to marry him. In the most  unrealistic way possible. Obviously, in his dream, she practically jumps into his arms. He tells himself to work hard.

Screenshot 2016-09-27 15.06.18.png

Gong Myung is annoyed by the clicking and notices Ki Bum. He fantasises about being the more handsome civil servant and everyone wanting their paperwork done by him. (um not how that works honey.) Once out of his day dream Gong Myung’s leg shaking distracts him.

Dong Youn is coming down the stairs when he comes face to face with Chae Yeon. They sidestep twice and finally she pushes him out of her way. He mutters that he’ll let it go because she’s pretty and get out the stairwell. Someone was stalking Chae Yeon and takes upskirt shots of her as she walks up the stairs.

Ha Na goes online and tells the students that she’s the teacher that fainted and since she wants to give them a break she just wants to have fun with them. She ends up acting cute, eating for them, as well as doing challenges. Won Hae finds it so tacky and Jung Suk can’t believe what she’s doing.

Won Hae wants them to turn it off when Jung Suk comes on. He tells them that even though Ha Na fainted in her last class she’s a talent teacher and he assures them. As the theme is to do what they which he will join in. They first ask him to smile and then to make hearts. Ha Na has to show him how to make hearts with his fingers. Someone asks for them to go to Yeobu and take pictures of the fir works for them. He agrees to do so if the views hit 500. He encourages them to spread it around. The next request is for them to dance. Both Jung Suk and Ha Na tells them that they’re aren’t good at dancing but they do it anyways. They dance away and they thank them for their support.

Screenshot 2016-09-27 15.25.27.png

Let’s Drink Episode 6 Recap



We open with to see Jung Suk (Ha Seok Jin) drinking at a chic bar. A drunk woman tries t hit on him but he turns down her advances. When she mentions that he looks lonely he tells her that he enjoys being alone. He notices Ha Na’s (Park Ha Sun) comment and scoffs at it.

Ha Na is at home mulling over why Jung Suk is drinking hard liquor with the Join class starting the next day. She wants to drink too but decides to stay sober. It suddenly starts to rain with she’s preparing for class. When she tries to go to bed, thunder strikes and scares her into going back to prepare.

The following morning, Ha Na steps out to find it raining heavily. So much so, that as she’s walking to the station her umbrella flips inside out. While at the station, Ha Na looks at the poster and wonders why Jung Suk did what he did. She promises to focus on teaching as a way to thank him.

Ha Na is in the office preparing when Jin Yi (Hwang Wo Seul Hye) comes in. Jin Yi is surprised that she’s there so early preparing for the class. Ha Na admits that she couldn’t’ sleep after thinking about teaching in front of so many students. She asks Jin Yi is she’s nervous, but Jin Yi tells her to just do like she always does. Ha Na asks if she was excited because Jin Yi marked the date on the calendar. Jin Yi tells her that it’s her ovulation day and she’ll be sleeping with Min Oh to get pregnant. (I hate girls like these) Jin Yi explains that Min Oh doesn’t want to get married until his business is secure but she doesn’t want to wait. Jin Yi tells Ha Na that it’s a very important day. Jin Woong comes in parodying another drama.Jin Yi complains about him imitating a dark character and it does make Ha Na a little uncomfortable as well. Jung Suk comes in and Ha Na smiles at him and wishes him a good morning. He closes the blinds and wonders why she’s smiling. He smiles to himself then goes to work.

Dong Young goes into the cafeteria a and asks if he can have Chae Yeon’s leftovers. He tells her that he’s run out of that month’s allowance. He takes it when Ki Bum comes in, in a suit. Dong Young asks if he’s going somewhere and he admits that it’s his grandmother’s 70th birthday and he has to go. Chae Yeon tells him that if he’s come to Noryangjin, then he should study. Ki Bum tells her that she needs a new line and she kicks him in the shin. Ki Bum complains that she’ll ruin his suit when Dong Young reminds him of the rain.

Ha Na is walking the halls when she walks by Jung Suk’s class. She peaks in and comments on how good he is and wish she could be like that. When Jung Suk notices her at the door she walks away. She finds solace in the stairwell and starts talking to her phone. She admits how nervous she is and how much she really wants to impress Jung Suk. He phone asks if she likes him and she denies it.

Won Hae comes in and invites everyone out to eat since his in-laws had been talking to him all day about the academy’s profit margin. Jin Woong suggests that they go have soup but Won Hae wants an octopus stir-fry. Ha Na tells them that she’ll skip lunch. Jin Yi tells her that she shouldn’t skip it since she stayed up all night and didn’t eat breakfast. Jin Woong gives her a supplement pack and tells her to eat at least that.

Gong Myung is at home eating ramen and reading a manhwa when he has an idea for some wine. He goes to get some when his phone rings. Ki Bum asks him if he’s going to class and Gong Myung tells him he’s not. Ki Bum tells him that he has some place fun to go and asks him to bring his brother’s car.

Ha Na heads to class and wonders why she’s suddenly dizzy. She notices that she’s sweating and her heart is racing. She chalks it up to being nervous and she goes in to teach the class. Within her introduction speech, she ends up fainting.

Jung Suk is in the elevator and notices the poster. He checks his watch and wonders if Ha Na is doing well. He chastises himself for caring. He tells himself that he’s not worried for her but or his joint class. He steps out of the elevator to find Ha Na being carried on Dong Young’s back. He asks Won Hae what’s going on and Won Hae tells him that Ha Na fainted during her class.

Gong Myung takes Ki Bum to the party and tells him he’s a dedicated grandson. Ki Bum tells him what a trouble child he was and wants to thank his grandmother. When he remembers his track suit he calls Dong Young. He’s told that Dong Young is at the hospital. When Ki Bum hangs up, Gong Myung asks if something is wrong and Ki Bum tells him that something happened to Ha Na.

Ha Na wakes up and finds herself in the hospital. Dong Young tells her that she’s fainted and she wonders if she was very nervous. The doctors came and told her that it seemed to have been anaphylaxis shock that caused her to faint. (Um can I have her anaphylaxis, because when I have an allergic reaction I nearly die, not just faint. Also, it’s not a slow onset thing…) They ask what she ate and it was only the supplement pack. They want to run an allergy test so they tell her to rest. She asks Dong Young to forget that he’s heard that it’s an allergic reaction and she leaves.

Jung Suk is walking when he hears other teachers bad mouthing Ha Na and himself. He goes up to them and tells them that they shouldn’t bad mouth people unless they can bad mouth them to their face.

Ha Na returns and gets yelled at by Won Hae. She apologises and he asks if she’s hiding anything. She tells him now and he requests that medical report by Monday. He sends her off to reschedule her class.

Ha Na tries to cheer herself up but comes face to face with Jung Suk. She apologises and he tells her that she might not be ready for the opportunity. He reminds her that taking care of yourself is the first step of being a teacher but, in the end, he blames himself for picking her because he might have thought too highly of her.

Ha Na goes to the stairwell and complains that she worked so hard for the opportunity that she messed up. She knew she was going to get yelled at but she didn’t expect to feel so sad.

Ki Bum goes to the party and hears his mother and grandmother talking. His grandmother has such faith that Ki Bum is going to pass this year and takes it as a good thing that he hasn’t come. Ki Bum decides to stay in the shadows and takes his grandmother’s words to heart. He watches the festivities before leaving.

While in the car Gong Myung contemplates texting Ha Na but he doesn’t want to disturb her. He calls Dong Young and finds out that Ha Na is away. When Gong Myung asks what happened Dong Young tells him it was an allergic reaction to a supplement but he’s not supposed to know. Dong Young hangs up with him. Ki Bum comes back to the car and tells Gong Myung to head out.

Jin Woong wants to go out to eat but Jin Yi tells them that she has plans. Just then Min Oh calls and cancels their plans. Ha Na wants to go home. Jin Woong offers her another supplement and she refuses before leaving. Jin Woong tries to get Jin Yi to come drink with him.

Ha Na is waiting for the bus when Won Hae texts her. he sends her comments and videos that the students are making. He wants her to write a formal apology when she gets home. Jung Suk happens to see her and wonders why she looks so down. He wonders if he was too harsh on her while she was sick. He tells himself that he’s not the one who made her sick.

Gong Myung pulls up and gets Ha Na to get into the car. While driving her home he tells her that he borrowed the car to drive her home. She asks if he heard and he’s up-to-date on what happened. He tells her that everyone probably thinks it’s nerves when it was really an allergic reaction. He feels like she should tell people but she doesn’t want to.

When they arrive home she thanks him and he asks which is her unit. She vaguely motions to one side of the building and he assumes it’s the 2nd floor. A neighbour comes to see her and tells her that he apartment is probably flooded due to a sewer backing up. Ha Na sends Gong Myung home but instead he comes inside to help her.

Ki Bum drinks alone on the rooftop and opens his present for his grandmother. He pictures dancing with her. Chae Yeon comes out to see Ki Bum dancing and thinks he’s a psycho. When he falls and doesn’t get up, she starts to worry. She goes to check on him and she notices him crying. He tells her that she’s right that he should have been studying and had he passed he could have danced with his grandmother. He clings to Chae Yeon and cries until she pushes him off and goes back inside.

Ha Na takes Gong Myung out of supper to thank him for helping her. She apologises for taking up so much of his time. He tells her that it’s ok since he doesn’t study. She tries to asks why’s that and then remembers that she couldn’t teach the class anyways. She takes a shot of Soju and he asks if she ok enough to do that. He tells her that she probably needs a drink after how bad everything went. She tells him that she’s fine. As soon as Gong Myung tells her that it’s ok for her to be not ok in front of him the waterworks start. He tries to cheer her up but she feels like her life is ruined because of her fainting.

Jin Wong and Jin Yi are out eating and Jin Woong asks if she always really wants to see her boyfriend. She tells him that it’s the case and he’s really surprised. She asks if he and his wife were ready when they got married. He tells her that they weren’t and they started off in a rental unit and he was a newbie in Noryangjin. His alarm goes off and she asks if his wife is that important. After he leaves she admits that she wants to be that important for someone.

Jung Suk voice over begins with saying that drinking alone on a rainy day is the best because you can cry and it’ll be drowned out by the rain. By watching the rain you can feel like a little bit of grief gets washed away. We see Ha Na, Ki b\Bum and Jin Yi all drinking alone.

When Jin Woong arrives home, we find out that Wifu is his dog. He picks her up and grabs a beer from the fridge.

Gong Myung comes back and tries to give her a hangover drink She chastises him because she sent him home. She toppled over and he catches her. He lays her head on the other chair and looks at her sweetly.

Jung Suk checks Instagram and noticed that Ha Na hasn’t posted anything. He wonders if it’s because she’s mad or really sick. He tries to decide to call her but decides not to but he taps the button anyways. Gong Myung picks up the phone and Jung Suk hangs up. He wonders how she could be out drinking with a man and can’t think of who would date her, but he assumes any man would do.

Gong Myung tells her to wake up and tells her that he’ll go home when she does. She decides that they should go and when she sits up she has a napkin stuck to her face. He smiles and removes it before she goes to faint again. He catches her and places her head on his shoulder. He tells her that it looks like she really needs a boyfriend and asks her to be his girlfriend.
