Hi all! Now, does Jongnam know that Haein and Sukhyun are engaged to be married? I wouldn't think she'd go out with him if she did, and she wouldn't have encouraged H. to consider dating Kiwoong. Still, can't she tell that Sukhyun is wearing a ring?
No, it seems to be sort of a secret. Suk-hyun isn't acting like an engaged man, tho, giving Jong-nam clothes like that. Even if he thinks he's paying off a debt, it's a funny thing to do. If the money is actually Jong-nam's, shouldn't she have a say in how it's spent? Ok, this is a story, but Jong-nam has so little, I hate to see her stuck with an outfit she doesn't even feel comfortable in. But I guess the point, in the minds of the writers, is to catch Suk-hyun's eye when she's all dolled up.
But she refused to take the money when offered. Given Jong-nam's temper, he wasw probably scared to tell her why she didn't have to pay for the watch. Giving her the outfit was like a Mom with leftovers: "If you don't take this, I'm just going to have to throw it away."
It seems to me like Jong-nam doesn't view it like a date when they're out together, even when they were at the Gag Concert.
