K-Drama Reaction: Radio Romance | Episode 4

You know, Ji Soo-ho (Yoon Doo-joon) is the epitome of “hot and cold.” One day he’s (a little bit) thoughtful and caring, the next day he wouldn’t just give a damn, and it’s driving me mad.


PD Lee Kang (Yoon Park) decided to hold a planning meeting, and it’s gonna be an overnight trip. Everyone seems to be excited, well, except for Soo-ho who acted grumpy the whole time they travel. He’s a total kill joy, but I have to admit that he’s very cute every time he’s acting jealous of Song Geu-rim (Kim So-hyun) and PD Lee Kang’s closeness. Did you see how irritated he was when our heroine took care of PD-nim who felt dizzy while they’re on the ferry? I also find him so charming every time he gets annoyed with Jason’s (Kwak Dong-yeon) playfulness. Their bromance makes me wanna pinch them both on the cheeks. LOL.

Soo-ho sounds like a sulking boy when he told Geu-rim that she lost her laptop because she’s too busy looking after PD Lee Kang. Though he said that he would want to go home that’s why he accompanied her back to the port, I know he’s more worried about her going there alone. He may be prickly, but he’s also a sweetheart! See how torn he was on whether or not to give Geu-rim his scarf when he saw her cold?

Luckily for Geu-rim, she managed to get her laptop back, but it’s the opposite for Soo-ho who was told by the port ticket cashier that there’s only one ferry trip per day in that island so he had no choice but to stay. And as if they haven’t had enough bad luck that day, they took the wrong bus on their way back! It’s already dusk and they’re lost in an unfamiliar place so they had no choice but to stay the night at the house of an old man who mistook Soo-ho for his son. I felt really bad for this grandpa especially when he showed Geu-rim and Soo-ho the postcards he tirelessly sent to radio stations in hopes of finding his son. I wonder where he could be?


I’m sure that it’s now clear to everyone that Soo-ho has long been in a one-sided love for Geu-rim. We’ve had several flashbacks in this episode that prove that, but what I can’t understand is why does Soo-ho seem to hold back his feelings? He wants Geu-rim near but not too near if that makes sense. I wonder if his dream about him and another teenage boy who got into an accident has something to do with it? Maybe, he and that boy both liked Geu-rim and when the latter met that seemingly fatal accident, Soo-ho felt too guilty to continue his feelings for our heroine.

I also believe that this accident that happened 12 years ago is the reason behind why Soo-ho doesn’t have his own cellphone and why he is cold to manager Kim Jun-woo (Ha Joon). Let’s wait for more clues in the next episodes!


D-day has finally come! It’s the first broadcast of Soo-ho’s radio show Radio Romance, which by the way is prerecorded. Of course, Geu-rim is both excited and anxious because after long years of waiting, she’s finally hearing her script being read on the radio for the first time. But to her disappointment, Soo-ho used a different one and didn’t even read a single line from her script that she worked on so hard. Ouch. What happened here? Could it be Ra Ra-hee (Kim Hye-eun) who wrote the script that Soo-ho used? Woah. I thought Soo-ho and Geu-rim somehow grew a little bit closer after spending the night together and even sleeping side by side!

But what is even harder to understand here was Soo-ho’s reaction after seeing Geu-rim and PD Lee Kang on their way for a drink. Jinja, does this man want Geu-rim or does he not? Can you please make up your mind, Mister Top Star?
