It has been a while that I am this motivated to write a quick recap for a drama since Secret Garden, but Dream High, this drama has me, I can’t believe I am all hyped up for this idol drama and you know what, my heart was beating fast when I saw Jin Gook (by Taecyeon from 2PM) hugged Hye Mi (by Suzy from Miss A) from behind^^
So where should I start, seems like I have a lot of catching up to do. But just some highlights from this episode.
In this episode, episode 9 of Dream High, our leads, Jin Gook and Sam Dong compete head on, for the dance competition as well as for the girl, Go Hye Mi.
Round 1, Jin Gook returns after his debut, and it has been awhile, he waits for Hye Mi at home. Outside of the house, there are Jin Gook’s fans, aggressive female fans I must say. Hye Mi comes home and tries to walk through the fans, but she is stopped by the leader who thinks she is also one of Jin Gook’s fans. Despite Hye Mi’s defense that she lives in that house, this group of fans pushes her away. Sam Dong comes back and sees what is happening, he pushes everyone aside and holds Hye Mi. At the same time, Jin Gook comes out of the house as well, the fans start screaming. Jin Gook asks if Hye Mi is ok, Sam Dong pushes Jin Gook aside and tells him it is better that he stays out of it. The next day, Jin Gook goes back to the old practice room and he sees Sam Dong there. He thanks Sam Gong for what happened yesterday (for helping Hye Mi). Sam Dong asks Jin Gook if he still has no feelings towards Hye Mi, after thinking for a while, Jin Gook says ‘No’, he has feelings. (This part sounds awkward, doesn’t it? :P, trying to stay with the script) Sam Dong tells Jin Gook frankly, even that is the case, he will not let go of Hye Mi. I guess Sam Dong has won this round, what do you think?^^
Round 2, in order to have better marks, our leads join the dance of the year competition. Hye Mi forms a team with Jason, Sam Dong and Pil Sook, whereas Baek Hee is in the same team with Jin Gook and other 2 members. Hye Mi’s team picks a bright theme with birds as inspiration, and Baek Hee’s team picks a dark theme and their dance is influenced by the movement of snakes. Both teams have won the competition, but Sam Dong leads in this round as he steals a kiss from Hye Mi when she talks to him about winning the competition. Then, the Dream High writer decides Jin Gook needs to see this scene, Jin Gook is standing somewhere not far when Sam Dong kisses Hye Mi on her cheek.
Round 3, Jin Gook should win this round. It was heart breaking to watch when his biological father who is a politician comes out on a talk show and denies their father-son relationship for his own career, he claims that Jin Gook is his adopted son. After the talk show, heart-broken and discouraged, Jin Gook goes back to the house, he finds Hye Mi and asks her to go for a ride. But Hye Mi says there are his fans and it is cold, he should go. When Hye Mi turns around, Jin Gook hugs Hye Mi from behind and holds her tightly as he cries. Hye Mi asks ‘Are you crying?’ ‘No, it is just cold.’ He let go of her and turns around, walks off alone. Hye Mi follows him but again the writer decides to add in a twist, she sees Baek Hee picks Jin Gook up with a van, then Hye Mi smirks, probably thinking why am I worried about him?
At the end of episode 8, our kids receive a notice that they are going to Japan for a field trip but sponsored by President Ma. So our story continues in Japan, for Episode 10 I think, and in the preview I do see a kiss between Jin Gook and Hye Mi, that should be exciting to watch 🙂
I was so confused, this post is for episode 9 not for 8.
