'Love is Blind: Japan': Minami and Mori decide to work hard on their relationship
The recent episode of 'Love is Blind: Japan' sees a worried Mori trying to keep up with Minami's expectations. They seemed to gel well during their conversations from the pods. So what happened all of a sudden?
The next step after meeting in person on the reality dating show is living together for a couple of weeks. Although it's a first-time experience for many, Mori feels like their relationship has been tough on him. The fact that Minami is too direct and a little too blunt at times doesn't sit well with the doctor contest on the reality dating show. So where do they go from here?
From the previous episodes, we saw that Mori and Minami shared a lot of core values. They want the same things in a marriage, more or less. Mori said that growing up, he was hardly ever praised for anything so when he has children someday, he most definitely will praise them for all their wins, big or small. Mori also feels strongly about couples fighting as he saw that a lot in his own house and doesn't want it to be the same in his case. Minami agreed with him on both these accounts and said that these aspects are important to her in the marriage too.
When it was time for the two to live under one roof, things seems to take a different turn. Minami was pretty blunt when she told Mori to clear the shower drain after he took a shower. This in turn didn't sit well with Mori since he's been struggling with hair fall, and her pointing this out was deeply embarrassing for him.
Mori also noticed how she's quite outspoken and has several quirks. When they go to his apartment to pick up some stuff, Minami says that she wants him to downsize his wardrobe and she expects things to change if they're going to get married.
When the contestants meet a second time for a barbeque, Mori tells the others that he and Minami have been having long conversations till about 4 am, and lately, it's as if he's being scolded by her a lot. Since things have come to this, he honestly feels like giving up.
Later, the two sit down to have a long chat, and after Mori tells Minami what's on his mind. Minami explains that her bluntness and negative tone are something she knows she has to work on. What struck her most about Mori during their pod talks was that he's a very positive person, and doesn't look down on anyone. After a few brief encounters, she realized that if she were to be with him, his qualities would rub onto her, thereby making her a better person.
The two then decide to work towards making changes in their relationship.
'Love is Blind: Japan' was released on February 8, 2022, on Netflix.
