'Romance is a Bonus Book': Eun-ho and Dan-yi grow closer as they reveal their true feelings to each other
Dan-yi had come to realize that she may have feelings for Eun-ho, someone she considered as her younger brother until quite recently
'Romance is a Bonus Book' took an interesting turn over the weekend as Cha Eun-ho and Kang Dan-yi struggle with their emotions and feelings for each other. Dan-yi had come to realize that she may have feelings for Eun-ho, someone she considered as her younger brother until quite recently. Eun-ho also realized that Dan-yi's resolve is wavering as he spends more time together with her. Meanwhile, Eun-ho's secret about one of the authors who retired after giving Eun-ho's company the rights to publish his work is also taking a toll on him.
Over the weekend, we saw Dan-yi try to figure out if Eun-ho was joking about confessing his feelings and in an emotional conversation, he revealed that he has always been in love with her. He said, "Just like how you cannot point out the exact moment seasons change, I cannot tell you when my feelings changed for you." He also told her that he wouldn't mind if Dan-i dated Seo-Joon. This worried her further as she understood the depth of his feelings for her. She also realized that he had buried them deep down all this while.
Meanwhile, Dan-yi's relationship with Seo-joon also turned complicated as she is clearly distracted by Eun-ho while he is falling in love with her. In fact, Eun-ho also realised that there is something amiss in their relationship and tried to talk to her about it. While Dan-yi was initially comfortable around Eun-ho, she is now hypersensitive to his movements and is clearly beginning to see that there is more to their relationship.
Even as Eun-ho and Dan-yi's relationship matures, there is a secret within Eun-ho, which would affect his other relationships. As the series is halfway through, there is clearly a lot that will unravel soon and it has to be seen how the two will face the consequences.
Meanwhile, at the company, Hae-rin received a letter from Eun-ho that explained his true feelings for her. He also confessed that he had read the previous letters that she had hid in his bookshelf, but apologised for not feeling the same way about her. He also told her to wait for a man that would bring out the best in her, while he stayed with her as a friend and senior. She begins to spend more time with Seo-joon as a result and this could be a new beginning.
The most intriguing part about the weekend episodes is with Seo-joon's investigation. Seo-joon is researching the disappearance of the author who was the reason behind the growth of the company that Eun-ho works at. Rumours suggested that the company acquired the rights from the author and locked him up to enjoy the royalty benefits, but the truth will be revealed in the upcoming episodes.
'Romance is a Bonus Book' starring Lee Jong-suk and Lee Na-young is a TvN show and Netflix original. The series premiered on January 26 and 10 episodes have been aired so far.
