Last week, we were introduced to Lee Seung Jun, the wedding singer who experienced past trauma, and Song Jae Hyun, an extroverted full-time café owner, and part-time pianist. Let’s find out if their relationship progressed in ‘Happy Merry Ending’ episodes 3 and 4.
Episode 3: What should I do?
The scene was left off from last week of Seung Jun breaking down and taking his meds. His friend, Ho Yeon, saw him and they talk for a bit, which calmed Seung Jun down. He talked about how he got triggered when Jae Hyun touched him, but not because he didn’t particularly like it, but because he remembered his jerk of an ex.
The next day, Seung Jun meets his new student, Kim Chan Woo, who is a member of a famous idol group. Of course, he has no idea who he is, but he treats him like a regular student. After the vocal lesson, Seung Jun walks his famous student out, but then just right outside, is Jae Hyun. Chan Woo waves goodbye, although Seung Jun was hesitant to be alone with Jae Hyun, but he said that someone from the company was fetching him after class, which turned out to be his company CEO… and Seung Jun’s ex, the same one who gave him trauma.
Unbeknownst to that fact, however, Seung Jun agrees to walk with Jae Hyun to the park. There, Jae Hyun apologized to Seung Jun if he acted over the line. Seung Jun admitted that he did find it bothersome, but Jae Hyun still asks if he is available the next day. Seung Jun initially wanted to turn him down, but he reminded him of his promise from the last time when he walked him home. And so, although hesitant, Seung Jun agreed to make do with his promise of giving Jae Hyun vocal lessons. After their talk, Jae Hyun waited with him until he got on a bus and enthusiastically waved him goodbye. Seung Jun smiled and thought that even though he was not made for relationships, they could be friends.
Everything was going well… that is until Seung Jun gets a call from Chan Woo, where his incredibly annoying ex, steals the phone from him and tells Seung Jun he has been looking for him for a long time.
