'True Beauty' Episode 10 Comic Spoilers: Will Su-ho and Ju-kyung's romance be marred by jealousy?
'True Beauty' Episode 10 will see Su-ho continually feel threatened by Ju-kyung's increasingly close friendship with Seo-jun
'True Beauty' Episode 9 ended on quite a comical note as Ju-kyung's (Moon Ga-young) father caught Su-ho (Cha Eun-woo) just as he was about to kiss her. He had been staying at Su-ho's home to ensure that he was not caught getting broke by his wife. Instead, he ended up finding intimate details of his daughter's dating life. Now in Episode 10, we will see how this sweet romance will take a turn for the worse after Su-ho begins to develop jealousy over how close Ju-kyung and Seo-jun (Hwang In-yeop) have become.
In fact, when all of Su-ho and Seo-jun's classmates end up seeing the picture that the two of them had taken for a website, their friends assume that the boyfriend that Ju-kyung had been hiding is not Su-ho but Seo-jun. They even make a huge deal out of it by making huge posters of the pictures that were taken. It is also not just Su-ho whose jealousy surfaces. We see Soo-jin (Sooyoung) tell Ju-kyung despite knowing that her best friend likes Su-ho that she plans on proposing to him all because the opportunity has presented itself.
Both of these incidents will increase the growing distance between Su-ho and Ju-kyung. It all started with Ju-kyung's self-esteem issues and at the moment, it seems as if things have gone beyond her understanding. At this moment, the show also manages to include scenes that were considered popular in the webcomic, like the one where Su-ho almost ends up meeting with an accident. Of course, in the comics, he had attempted to save Ju-kyung, but in the show, we will see Seo-jun try to save Su-ho and so we believe that this could very well be the beginning of reconciliation between two friends.
All this while, Seo-jun had hated Su-ho because he had believed that their friend Se-yeon had died because of Su-ho and his father. He had even started to tease Su-ho by acting as if he were interested in Ju-kyung, but instead fell in love with her for real in the process. Yet, he had continued to hate on Su-ho. When he had learned that Su-ho had helped when his mother had been admitted to the hospital without his knowledge, he first throws a tantrum and then comes to the realization that he must be thankful. He then thanks Su-ho, but that is still not the same as reconciliation. In the comics too, the reconciliation began after a life-threatening event and looks like it will be the same in the show as well.
Will this also change the way Seo-jun sees Ju-kyung? We will have to wait and see. 'True Beauty' episodes will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10.30 pm on tvN in Seoul and can be streamed on Viki in the US.
