Episode 12 of Lovestruck in the City dropped an exciting plot twist─a hungover Lee Eun-oh (Kim Ji-won) waking up in the bed of her ex-lover, Park Jae-won (Ji Chang-wook)! Episode 13, Have You Ever Blacked Out?, intrigues us with the events that follow right after Eun-oh finds herself trapped in an embarrassing predicament.
Eun-oh’s friends have lies of their own
“Have you ever blacked out after drinking?” This is the opening question that all of Eun-oh’s friends, namely Kang Geon (Ryu Kyung-soo), Suh Rin-yi (So Joo-yeon), and Choi Kyung-joon (Kim Min-seok), answer no to. Meanwhile, Oh Sun-young (Han Ji-eun), Geon’s former girlfriend, casually and unapologetically affirms that she does all sorts of weird things when drunk. She also reveals that Eun-oh’s friends are liars because according to Geon, they turn into a bunch of idiots when drunk. Rin-yi sleeps inside a dog house, Kyung-joon dozes off inside the elevator, Geon retains no memories of what happened, and Eun-oh hops on a bus with a big suitcase.
Eun-oh drunk-texts Jae-won
While on a bus with a suitcase, a drunk Eun-oh accuses Jae-won through text messages that he is a harsh jerk and threatens to remove the heart emojis that she has been using as his contact name. However, her heart betrays her in a beat when she also sends him messages that read, “I LPVRD YIU” (I loved you) and “I MOSS YIU” (I miss you).
Jae-won tells Eun-oh about last night
Over breakfast, Jae-won tells Eun-oh that when he received weird texts from an unsaved number, he called the sender and found out that it was her. The bus driver told him that the owner of the phone had passed out, and although Jae-won thought of leaving her there freezing in the cold night, he ended up going to the garage and bringing her home.
Eun-oh apologizes for not being Seon-a
In the middle of their morning face-off, Eun-oh couldn’t stand that Jae-won repeatedly brings Seon-a up, so she stops him by saying that the woman he loved is nothing more than a fake version of her, that constantly comparing the two of them would be pointless, as he does not know anything about Lee Eun-oh─her feelings, personality, thoughts, or preferences for that matter.
Rin-yi and Kang Geon catch Eun-oh and Jae-won together
Looks like fate wants to play cupid for our ex-lovebirds yet again. As soon as Eun-oh walks out of Jae-won’s house, it starts to pour. Whether he is just being a thoughtful gentleman or he still cares deeply for her despite everything, Jae-won rushes out to search for Eun-oh so he can rescue her from the rain. When inside his car, he cannot stop himself from gazing intently at Eun-oh’s beautiful face. He then smiles naughtily, as if amused by her awkward and tense movements in the very moment that she is too close to him.
However, the real fun part begins when Geon and Rin-yi catch their best friend arriving together with Jae-won while they are on their way to have some ramyeon with her. Will next episode finally open with the big reveal? Let’s all stay tuned and see!
