Love Is For Suckers Episodes 11 and 12 Highlights
After the haunted school couple challenge, Yeo-reum decides to get the small cameras not knowing the heavy rain downpour would cause a small flood. Protecting the shoes she got from Jae-hoon as a birthday present, she got surprised to see her best friend who told her to stay put. He then scoops her into his arms to help her cross the flooded path.
“Liking a person means believing that person has a good heart.”
Back at the base, the members talk about Jae-hoon’s actions. Surprisingly, John Jang defends him by revealing that he is good friends with PD Yeo-reum.
When he got a chance, John Jang also went on a genuine talk with Yeo-reum acknowledging his mistake for not realizing how great a person she is from all his former flings.
The next day, couples are set to be formed and go on dates. Unfortunately, no one picked So-yeon while Hoon-hee and Jang-goo both opted for Su-mi. The rest of the old pairings stay the same.
Talking to the show’s writer about the frustrating reality that there were no major movements among the couples in the show, she had a eureka moment on how to stir So-yeon since she has a volatile personality. Subsequently, Chae-ri visits So-yeon to stir her frustration by reiterating her pitiful position in the show.
Meanwhile, Jae-hoon realizes that Ji-yeon is being pitied by the public because of her one-sided feelings for him. Thus, he makes a sweet move so the viewers won’t view her as a desperate person in the show.
Later, when she talks to Jae-hoon about that action, he responds that even if he does not like her the way she does with him, he wants to protect her in front of the cameras.
“Give me my life back! Give me back the money you swindled!”
Huddling to watch the new episode of their show, the members watch it together while Yeo-reum watches it at Dae-sik and Hye-jin’s restaurant. Unknown to Yeo-reum, attention-hungry and shrewd Jun-ho brought up Ji-wan’s sexual harassment conversation which Chae-ri of course happily includes in the episode. Surprised to see the twist in the show that she’s not aware of, Yeo-reum rushes to the set.
While Kingdom of Love 2 receives high ratings, a cryptic man is shown harboring resentment towards the show. His rage escalated to a point of no return visiting the filming location and creating havoc.
He also wounded Sang-woo with a knife when he intruded the room where Chae-ri and Sang-woo are conversing where the latter respectfully chided his senior. Chae-ri tells him to return so he can prove his condescending words make sense at all.
Arriving at a chaotic set, Yeo-reum sees the crazy man subdued by the male members of the show. It turns out that his target is Jun-ho. Revealing how Jun-ho sweet-talked people into a failed investment, the crazy man questioned Chae-ri for casting a scammer.
“Tell me when it’s hard. I will always be there for you.”
The aftermath of the shocking incident led to the decision of the station director to move for an early end of the show to which Chae-ri refuses to acquiesce. She lets the members know of a two-day break where the members have to stay in the filming location.
Finding her best friend alone, Yeo-reum checks on him after the event. Jae-hoon assures her that she’s okay. When he asked her if she’s really decided to be in the kind of messy work like what happened the other night, she responds that dreams may turn good or bad, but they always become life itself inevitably. He promises her that if life gets hard, he will always be there for her.
After receiving a call that her mom got into an accident, John rushes to see her mom but was halted by Ji-wan who asked if she can tag along. They arrive at John’s hometown where they had spent time getting to know each other. He also consoles Ji-wan that her past bad experience is not her fault showing his genuine warm side.
Chae-ri’s attempt to salvage the situation of her show came futile as the director refused to prolong Kingdom of Love 2. Aware of the situation, the members prepare for the final selection in the last episode shoot.
“I want to be by your side.”
With the looming end of the show, Jae-hoon tells Yeo-reum that he has purchased back her old apartment and brought his things there as well. Yeo-reum visits her old place and wallows in the memories she shared with Jae-hoon.
Coincidentally, Jae-hoon also arrives to check on her place and finds forlorn-looking Yeo-reum. Confessing how her heart is breaking and confused because she does not know what’s happening to her, she pleads if she can stay by his side. Jae-hoon responds by pulling her into his embrace. Sharing heartfelt “I love you” kisses, they share a new beginning as lovers together.
Love Is For Suckers Episodes 11 and 12 Musings
Knowing well to play with the viewers’ hearts, we finally got to say yay for Yeo-reum’s love enlightenment in the 12th episode of Love is For Suckers. A nice move for the production team because it’s the “only” right time to do so. Prolonging it more and the hook would definitely plummet.
Let’s look forward to how the best friends turned lovers would gift us fan service, too, in the remaining two weeks.
Aside from the main love tale, confronting the closure of the love triangle emerges in the last few episodes. Considering the beautifully crafted confession scenes in the series, we can only hope Ji-yeon can mend her broken heart well. At the very least, she bravely took a chance for love, and that’s still admirable. Not all, can have the guts to claim it.
John Jang takes the spotlight in terms of character growth in the 6th week of the series. It’s great that he took the time to belatedly apologize and appreciate Yeo-reum through his admittance of how knowing her deeper in the show made him realize how amazing she is as a person.
In a way, the love line between him and Ji-wan has been wittingly projected, nonetheless perfectly attuned to the engrossing side love stories being featured.
On that note, the fates of the successful pairings in the last episode of Kingdom of Love 2 are also something to look forward to. The preview for the next episode suggests the same and more.
