Love In Contract – K-Drama Episode 4 Recap & Review

Social skills

Episode 4 of Love In Contract begins with Gwang-Nam cleaning up the apartment. When he goes into Sang-Eun’s room, he notices that Ji-Ho’s ring is still in the drawer. your last customer. He, too, hasn’t told his family he’s leaving and is sentimental towards his sisters.

Ji-Ho shows Sang-Eun and Hae-Jin the CCTV footage he received. He looked back to now from a month ago and actually caught the camera flashes in the bushes. Ji-Ho believes that the cameraman and the attacker are one and the same. He deduces that it is a jealous stalker misinterpreting Hae-Jin’s connections to Sang-Eun.

After some clarification with Hae-Jin (at least as much as he thinks anyway), Sang-Eun and Ji-Ho discuss concert tickets outside. Sang-Eun isn’t happy that he didn’t ask to go together, but the atmosphere between them is uncomfortable.

Ji-Ho eventually decides to show up… but he swaps places with a woman in the back so he doesn’t have to associate with Sang-Eun. Funnily enough, he ends up watching her more than the performance.

After the show, Ji-Ho notices the Chief outside and he asks Ji-Ho why he came alone. When he starts to question if Ji-Ho is a sociopath, Sang-Eun shows up and the dynamic changes. Ji-Ho introduces her as his wife, Sang-Eun joins in and the four of them go out to eat. It’s a hilarious section, especially since Sang-Eun does her best to support Ji-Ho as that knight in shining armor. He even protects her from a motorcyclist who later drives too close to her.

Ji-Ho asks if there’s something wrong with him, but Sang-Eun cryptically says, “The door is broken, but the room is fine.” This, of course, refers to Ji-Ho’s social skills. Sang-Eun agrees to help him become more sympathetic among his peers and gives him some “trade secrets” that she has.

Well, Ji-Jo is immediately thrown in at the deep end when the Chief confronts Ji-Ho and tells him he’s going to host a work with all of his colleagues. When he suggests suing the Chief, he throws it back at Ji-Ho, pointing out the VIP tickets he didn’t use and how expensive they are.

Madam Yoo works with the Kangjin Group and trick an architect into building some kind of design work on a large lot. They all sign contracts, but there’s a problem. Turns out this is on a green belt and as such, Yoo has come under fire in the news.

The reporters discuss how she tried to raise a large sum of money while stealing Kangjin’s name. As a result, she is arrested. This explains her attempt to call Sang-Eun some time earlier, and Sang-Eun finds herself out while with Ji-Ho.

Well, it seems that Yoo was a pawn in Kangjin’s game, at least if Ji-Ho’s conclusions are to be believed. He believes that they forcibly contracted to develop the green belt area. The Kangjin brothers appear to be in a fierce rivalry with each other, and it seems Tat Yoo is caught in the middle.

The only part Sang-Eun has in this whole ordeal is that she was raised by Yoo. Any bit of affection she showed her guardian was dismissed as rude or weak. Despite this, Sang-Eun changes her mind and decides to stay here and not go to Canada after all.

With news spreading online that Hae-Jin may be gay, Hae-Jin’s father is not happy. He arranges a meeting with his son and tells him to come home and get married. He has arranged to meet the second subsidiary of the Sungham Group and wants to do damage control. Hae-Jin sadly hangs his head.

As Hae-Jin heads back home, he confronts Sang-Eun on her way to the compound, where she intends to stay with Ji-Ho. He apologizes to her and wraps her face in a scarf and sunglasses to disguise Sang-Eun’s identity. He then reveals to everyone that he’s married… and shows Ji-Ho’s ring. When Ji-Ho sees this on TV, he’s not happy.

The Episode Recap

With each episode that goes by, I like Hae-Jin less and less. He’s not a great character and a lot of the problems here stem from the fact that he’s selfish and has numerous red flags. I appreciate that he has some suppressed issues from his childhood, but at the same time, Sang-Eun didn’t ask to be given the spotlight like that, and Ji-Ho won’t approve of that. I wonder how Sang-Eun will react when she finds out that Hae-Jin’s people were watching her the whole time?

However, the relationship between Ji-Ho and Sang-Eun is by far the strongest part of this show and their scenes together are great, especially with all the comedic shenanigans that have been going on. It seems that Sang-Eun will help him open up and be more sociable with his peers, and we’re already seeing that transformation in these episodes as well, which is great to see.

Anyway, the ending leaves the door wide open as to where it might go next, and based on that portrayal, it should be quite an entertaining watch.
