*SPOILERS ALERT* Start-Up Ep 10 kickstarts with Han Ji-pyeong finally confessing the truth to Seo Dal-mi (Suzy) that he was the person who wrote the letters to her which leads to the latter breaking down even further. Later on in the episode, besides mentoring the CEOs (especially Dal-mi) at Sand Box for Demo Day, Ji-pyeong also reveals to Dal-mi that he likes her (whilst mixing noodles for her during lunch!) but also assures that it shouldn't bother her as he's not expecting an answer.

Ji-pyeong also makes sure that Dal-mi knows Nam Do-san (Nam Joo-hyuk) genuinely like her, even if he did lie. On the other hand, Do-san is left a crying mess after he meets Dal-mi at the bus station and she confronts him for lying to her. Moreover, Dal-mi demands Do-san to not meet her outside of work as she's still trying to get over his and Ji-pyeong's lies. Dal-mi's grandmother Choi Won-deok (Kim Hae-sook) is also regretful for her white lies as it broke Dal-mi's heart. While in a vulnerable state, questioning her work as the CEO of Samsan Tech, Dal-mi gets drunks with When My Love Blooms star Lee Bo-young in a hilarious guest cameo.

However, Do-san interrupts the drinking session and walks Dal-mi home. When Dal-mi requests Do-san to run after her the way he did at Won In-jae's (Kang Han-na) party months ago, the latter does just that, while wearing the same black suit, only to come to an empty swing at the playground with the former all sobered and back home.

Do-san, at first, refuses Alex Kwon's (Jasper Cho) offer at a job in Silicon Valley but towards the end of the episode, after eavesdropping on Ji-pyeong saying how he will be Dal-mi's Plan B in case she fails at Demo Day, it seems like Do-san is thinking of accepting the job offer to aide Samsan Tech. Before, Do-san even comforts Dal-mi, who is a nervous wreck before her presentation at Demo Day, while wanting to show her the real Nam Do-san by saying goodbye to the fake Nam Do-san.

On the other hand, we finally know who the mystery man is, who had entered Sand Box to get revenge for his brother's death. It's unsurprisingly Kim Yong-san (Kim Do-wan) and the person he wants revenge from is Ji-pyeong, whom he confronts in the elevator almost choking him.

In a hilarious moment where real-life fangirling was shown on-screen was when Jeong Sa-ha (Stephanie Lee) was talking to Lee Chul-san (Yoo Su-bin) and Yong-san about Dal-mi choosing between Do-san and Ji-pyeong. While Sa-ha was Team Ji-pyeong, Chul-san and Yong-san were Team Do-san.

Moreover, Sa-ha made Chul-san and Yong-san understand the hard way why Do-san lying to Dal-mi was not a good thing. Sa-ha did this by pretending to reciprocate Chul-san's feelings only to shut him down in a moment's notice. Later on, Chul-san bravely confronts her about how she's playing around with him and while his feelings for her are true, she needs to stop giving him mixed signals.

The epilogue saw Ji-pyeong drinking in the same restaurant as Dal-mi had and encountering Bo-young's character, who tries to scam him by telling him to pray to his ancestors in order to get answers, the same way that she tried to trick Dal-mi.

Lee Bo Young made me laugh. I thought her character was for real but turned out she was a scam. Startup is a refreshing kdrama. Love the story and characters. Congratulations everyone.

I am fully aware that nds is the male lead. But this doesnt correct this drama romantizing lies, justifying deceit and unhardworking millenial jist because they think it can connect people. Writer better man up nds if they want him to be successful or this will make people think that trashy attitude is right. The world need more positive message.

I am for team Han JiPyeong and Dalmi. It just makes sense that the two end up together to show a beautiful love story that started since they were young. A love that somehow inspired each one of them as they dealt with their sad life then, and now that they are in a better situation, the love rekindled. The story becomes so predictable if Dalmi ends up with Dosan, as always the case for most K dramas. Besides, the grandma had a heart for JiPyeong from the beginning and so did JiPyeong, loved and could not forget the person who helped him during his most difficult times. It would be nice that the turn of events is a happy family for both her two - adopted grandson and grand daughter. It is more inspiring. Besides JiPyeong is more good looking to be the male lead.

These Korean dramas leaves/ creates confusion in the people's mind to think who is correct but according to me jyopeje peyong and dalmi should pair together bz the love started since childhood which will be always true but dosans love comes in the teenage time he is attracted by the beauty of dalmi not connected from the heart still he thinks only about dalmi not on his friends he wanted to fulfil dalmi and get her not his friends happiness who are there from childhood but in the other hand ji pyeong is not over reacting his intentions is not only to get dalmi but to lookafter the happiness of grandma, sandbox, his mentoring team, even after he knows dosan and dalmi are too close he is not angry and taking revenge on dosan/team this I see as a true Love.

Dari awal cerita sehingga episod kini , Nam Do San adalah seorang yang takkan menyerah kalah tapi menggunakan dengan taktik kotor dan menipu ramai orang termasuk ibubapa dan dirinya sendiri . Lelaki yang baik akan lakukan dengan cara baik dan ikhlas dalam apa jua kenyataan dan Nam Do San juga adalah seorang yang mudah iri hati dan terus judge orang tanpa dia kenal sikap Han Ji Pyeong sebenar . Han Ji Pyeong seorang anak yatim piatu dari kecil dan sedaya upaya untuk bangun dan usaha untuk teruskan hidup dengan impian yang berjaya . Dan Han ji Pyeong juga seorang yang berjaya yang tidak berlagak dan bukan seorang yang tamak seperti Do San anggap . Realiti sebenarnya , Do San yang tamak dan jahat sebab pergunakan Dal Mi dan Han Ji pyeong dalam masalah dirinya untuk capai impiannya sehinggakan sebenarnya sikap Do San adalah seorang lelaki yang tak jujur dan ambil kesempatan diatas sikap Ji pyeong dan Dal Mi . Orang sebaik dan sejujur Ji pyeong layak miliki hati Dal Mi .

I don't understand why most people are in team han ji pyeong, he and grandmthr together started all these lies. He is the one who used do Dan's name and he is also the one who approached him and tried to use him. Do San is also at fault for maintaining the lies bt he was atleast true to his feelings and didn't shy away from them. If any one is at fault for making a fool out of dal mi it should be ji pyeong as he is the one who is responsible for all these confusions.

So true. Jipyeong is so selfish. It wasnhis and grandma's failt, not Dosan's. Dalmi is better paired off with Dosan.

Instead of praising Nam Joo Hyuk for his solid performance in the really heart wrenching scenes. There are readers who commented that he made them cringe and never see male lead cry more than female lead. These are highly stereotypical comments. Why does male have to act tougher than woman ?? I know a lot of women who are tougher than men and a lot of men that only pretend to be tough but super weak. Statistically more men commit suicide than women. Why?? Cos they have to live up to people who stereotype that man must be strong and tough and crying it's a sign of weakness. I pity people who thinks like that. I got normal male friends who cry when things get tough. Dosan is not the typical pretentious guy who likes to act tough. He is a soft character that has low self esteem and breaks down easily. NJH portrayal of dosan is perfect. There is no need to be like some pathetic guys out there that likes to pretend they are tough. Be yourself.
