'Itaewon Class' Episode 11 Promo: Yi-seo confesses her love to Sae-ro-yi, will she accept rejection?
'Itaewon Class' in episode 10 saw how Park Sae-ro-yi (Park Seo-joon) finally managed to get Jang Geun-won (Ahn Bo-hyun) punished for killing Sae-ro-yi's dad in an accident. Geun-won was sent to jail, and by abandoning him, Jang Dae-hee -- who is Sae-ro-yi's biggest enemy and Geun-won's father -- manages to hold on to his position of Chairman of Jang Corporation.
It is partly a win for Sae-ro-yi, yet he still has a long way to go. He has to unseat Dae-hee from his seat of power and now, he will not even have Min-jang's influence. So he definitely needs Cho Yi-seo (Park Da-mi) on his side. However, Geun-soo who until now has been working for Sae-ro-yi at DanBam tries to show Yi-seo that she will never be anything more than Sae-ro-yi's close confidant. In the promo of the upcoming episode, we see Geun-soo ask Sae-ro-yi if he ever saw Yi-seo as a woman and not just an employee of DanBam.
It seems as if DanBam people are throwing a farewell party to Geun-soo who seems to have decided that he will now quit working at DanBam and take his rightful place at the Jang Corporation. Geun-seoo asks Sae-ro-yi this question at the dinner outing. We do not see how Sae-ro-yi responds to this question in the promo.
What we do see is Yi-seo leave in between dinner and she doesn't look happy. In fact, it looks like she is running away. Sae-ro-yi follows Yi-seo out and when he does catch up to her, he asks her why she is behaving like a child when she is, in fact, the smartest person he knows. In a moment of panic, Yi-seo ends up confessing that she likes him. In fact, she loves him and Sae-ro-yi looks shocked. So how will things work out for Sae-ro-yi now?
He has been in love with Soo-ah for most of his life and considering Sae-ro-yi is someone who doesn't change easily, it is going to be hard for Yi-seo to spark interest in Sae-ro-yi. Will Sae-ro-yi's rejection create a distance between Sae-ro-yi and Yi-seo? If so, this is something that Dae-hee will definitely use to break Sae-ro-yi down. How Sae-ro-yi reacts is something that we will see in the upcoming episode.
'Itaewon Class' episodes can be streamed on Netflix.
