K-Drama Reaction: The Undateables | Episodes 25-26

It’s time to make it official.

Meet The Parents

Kang Hoon-nam (Namgoong Min) and Yoo Jung-eum (Hwang Jung-eum) faced the first hurdle in their relationship: parental approval. Meeting Jung-eum’s father was easier compared to Hoon-nam’s family. His family situation is complicated and it makes it hard for him to get the right timing to introduce Jung-eum. I can feel his stepmother is somewhat delighted and anxious after finding out Hoon-nam started dating someone seriously. She knew Hoon-mam is different but she’s still afraid he’ll end up like his father.

On the other hand, I kind of feel bad for Hoon-nam’s father. I know he was a womanizer who made mistakes in the past but I think he’s trying his best to be a good father to Hoon-nam. He wouldn’t take the initiative to meet Jung-eum’s father if he doesn’t care about his son.

Ghost of the Past

Their current relationship is being haunted by previous mistakes made by their parents. I was afraid they’ll make stupid and unnecessary decision (e.g. breaking up) but they have proved they are not cowards anymore. They don’t run away when things get difficult. They now face it head-on. After all, they are no longer emotional teenagers. They are two adults who have the right to choose who to date and marry.

Maknae’s Episode Verdict

I thought the meet-the-parents plot would make things complicated but it was actually fun and light to watch. It was a good escape after a long and busy day at work. This actually reminded me of my long forgotten love for rom-coms. The lightheartedness of this episode has refreshed my jaded heart. Hopefully, this series would keep this up until the end.

– This is my fave among the outfits he tried.

– Er, why don’t they just date for real??
