After their accidental first kiss, Yi Jun asks Ha Ram to explain what just happened. Ha Ram told him the truth and that he was checking on whether he was breathing or not. And to answer his question about the photoshoot, Ha Ram says the models have arrived and are now doing a photoshoot. Yi Jun heads out but Ha Ram stops him and begs him to “take responsibility” for kissing him. But Yi Jun said it was just an accident and left. When Yi Jun arrives home, he lies down directly on his couch to take a nap and wakes up when his first kiss with Ha Ram flashes on his head. He, then, tried to meditate, however, it was no use as he suddenly received a photo of himself and Ha Ram at the photoshoot testing from his colleague. A sudden smile appeared on his face, and his smartwatch showed his heart rate increased. 

The next day, Yi Jun notices an anti-hangover drink on his table with a heart note again and checks Ha Ram’s empty cubicle. Jeong Seop, his colleague, greeted and told him that he sent yesterday’s photo to the CEO as a joke. He said that their boss ended up liking it and suggested that they will feature it as a cover in next month’s online newsletter. And now regretting the decision he made yesterday, he looked for Ha Ram to confront him. Upon seeing him, Yi Jun told Haram to act like strangers from now on and told him that his life is falling apart because of him. As he was about to leave, Ha Ram stops him and checks on him, which makes Yi Jun flustered. When he saw that Yi Jun was okay, Ha Ram let him go and explained that he researched light sensitivity and thought it might be the reason why he fainted. 

At the pantry, Eon Seon tells Yi Jun that she got worried upon learning about Yi Jun fainting. She, then, suggested that they should abandon their project, but Yi Jun stops her and says he will still do it.

Meanwhile, Yi Jun finally takes the bus to work instead of the subway. As expected, Ha Ram is there. Instead of avoiding him, however, Yi Jun reciprocates Ha Ram’s advances. Ha Ram invites him to dinner, but Yi Jun, as always, rejects it. He said if he wants to eat with someone, he will just use an app. Ha Ram, then, asks which app he is using and that he will try to find him through it. Yi Jun ignores him and goes home. 

While eating dinner by himself, he was looking through his dating app to find a potential partner for his “dating experiment project” and accidentally swiped right to an interesting profile named “Antartica, Looking for True Love”. The mysterious man wanted to keep his mysterious concept so he refuses to send a photo. However, they both ended up having a great conversation which lead to them agreeing to a date. 

The two decide to meet at Seoul Forest. There, Yi Jun arrives at their meeting place and finds out who his mystery man is…

Episode 4. “Would You Like To Eat Ramyeon?”

At Seoul Forest, Yi Jun finally meets his mystery man from the app and finds out it was…Ha Ram! In a state of shock, he slaps him and asks if this is a part of his plan. Ha Ram explains that it was Yi Jun’s fault for accidentally liking his profile first and intentionally didn’t reveal the truth so he can date him. So, Ha Ram proceeded to ask him to just date him since he knew the reason why Yi Jun came for his “romance training”, which is to accumulate experience. He stops Yi Jun who was about to leave, and asked him for a drink, and in exchange, Ha Ram will tell Yi Jun why he fell in love with him.

At the restaurant, Ha Ram revealed that he fell in love at first sight with Yi Jun, and it was during his job interview at the company. He said that Yi Jun fixed his shoelaces during that time when he felt nervous, and he was touched by the gesture. Yi Jun, on the other hand, found it absurd. On the other hand, Yi Jun finally opened up about why he refuses to date anymore. It was because his ex, whom he trusted so much, ended up cheating on him, and what’s worse is, he broke up with him over a text message. Ha Ram tells Yi Jun that he wishes he would not blame himself for his actions because it was clear he only did it to protect his heart. Ha Ram moves closer to Yi Jun and they continue to drink.

After drinking together, Yi Jun asks Ha Ram to part ways. But Ha Ram, wanting to spend more time with him, asks for another drink. But before Yi Jun could even refuse, Ha Ram and his golden retriever energy found a claw machine and insisted to play with it. Yi Jun could not get the blue bear stuffed toy that Ha Ram said looked like him, even with help, so Ha Ram personally played and got the blue bear on the first try. They go to a photo booth and took adorable photos together. After that, Yi Jun hugged Ha Ram and thanked him for the day.

They ended up in Yi Jun’s place where they ended up making out. The next morning, Yi Jun woke up cuddling Ha Ram. He fondly smiles at Ha Ram and goes to the kitchen to grab a drink. Ha Ram wakes up and was about to sneak out, but Yi Jun catches him and asks him what he’s doing. Ha Ram says, he was afraid Yi Jun might feel embarrassed after what happened last night, and it dawned into Yi Jun that Ha Ram was just being considerate of his feelings. Yi Jun asks him to stay and eat ramyeon to relieve his hangover, but Ha Ram jokingly said they already had ramyeon last night (a sexual innuendo).

The two ate hangover food (burgers are not meant to cure hangovers by the way) together and Yi Jun suddenly confessed that he has fond feelings towards Ha Ram but he needs more time. Ha Ram responded that he will patiently wait for him.

With 40 minutes run-time, a lot of things just happened between Ha Ram and Yi Jun. Have you guys expected that ‘ramen session’ to happen? What do you think will happen to them next? Will their story go smoothly or someone else will appear to spice things up? Let’s find out together and don’t miss the two episodes this coming Thursday at noon KST on GagaOOLala.
