In episode 8 of Lovestruck in the City, Jae Won finally gets Eun Oh arrested for theft which inadvertently leads them to come face to face.

Lovestruck in the City, the brand new mini-series by KakaoTV premiered for the first time on Netflix on December 22. The drama features Ji Chang Wook as Park Jae Won, Kim Ji Won as Lee Eun Oh, Kim Min Seok as Choi Kyung Joon, Seo Ju Yeon as Suh Rini, Han Ji Eun as Oh Seong Yeong and Ryu Kyung Soo as Kang Geun. These are the main characters that are followed through a documentary-style narrative, exploring their love lives or the lack thereof.

Jae Won is banking on his dashcam footage but it turns out that Kyung Joon already took out the memory card two days ago. The interviewer asks him why he’s so desperate to find Sun Ah and Jae Won answers by saying that anyone in his place, would have done the same if they went through such a break-up. Jae Won goes to the doctor to figure out if there's anything wrong with him and he says that he’s been seeing her in his dreams. However, it wasn’t a dream. Sun Ah meets Jae Won at a bar where he’s so beyond drunk that he can’t tell whether it’s reality or a dream. He can’t help but break down in her arms, asking her why she left and why they got married if she was going to leave like that. It is heart-wrenching in more ways than one and while Eun Oh seems fine on the surface, she also can’t help but cry. However, she still doesn’t break his illusion and makes him think it was a dream.

The net day, he’s once again going in circles and is about to take his wedding ring off when he sees Sun Ah again. The police are nearby so he yells out to them to catch the thief and Eun Oh eventually gets arrested for the camera.

It seems as though finally the star crossed lovers will come face to face, without any kind of illusion or any form of escape. Kang Geun’s relationship is also rocky because of Eun Oh in some way and it will be interesting to see how all the relationships change.

What horrendous things has the FL done to do all this? What thing is evil enough to make losing her love and torturing him all this time the lesser of 2 evils? This drama was universal in its construct up until this EP. This is the first EP where Korean Confucianism became a plotline. When the ML found out she had a different name he went full vapor lock. The plotline already established that he knew 2 months worth of her and she liked the fact that he never asked questions. So no matter what her name was he wouldn't have known her any more or less. But because its Korea, a simple thing like a name difference causes his whole brain to short circuit and die. During these scenes he flopped around like a Korean fish blathering about why her name was different on and on where in other countries one would have said, whats going on? Explain it to me so I can understand, but he never gives her the chance to say anything and then runs out of the police station. The Koreanness really showed up front and center in this EP.

I totally understand why Ji Chang Wook took this role. He wanted to try different genre of an acting. You are one versatile actor in the K-Drama Kingdom where actors stays at the comfort zone. You go there and experiment every genre possible. Hats of to you Ji Chang Wook x

Loving every bit of this drama. I think Ji Chang Wook you are visually stunning and you have nailed the character so well. It is hard to believe that you are the same action guy from Healer/The K2 and now a hopeless romantic guy. What a smooth transition.

PERU, Sud America. I 'm a huge fan of Ji Chang. I honestly think it's about timé he moves away from 15 year old audience dramas. I've Even watched the Netflix interview and his body language was of a teenager. I'm absolutely sure and trust his qualities as a serious actor. Even in a more meaningful romántic drama he would do great. He could try other areas of drama making such as directing or producing. Youth and good looks don't last forever. I'm expecting his next movie with the hope to ser him in a different role. All the best
