'Was it Love' Episode 8 promo delves into Ryu Jin’s past and feelings for Ae-jeong, Dae-o pursues her again
At the end of episode 7, Ryu Jin stops Dae-o from even caressing Ae-jeong's head after she falls asleep at her work desk. Dae-o seemed surprised by Ryu Jin's action and it seems like Ryu Jin will finally confess to Dae-o about how he had liked Ae-jeong even before Dae-o did. The promo of the upcoming episode features a flashback from Ryu Jin's past in which he seems completely smitten with Ae-jeong.
We also see how he had tried to confess his feelings to Ae-jeong but was unable to and only ended up going along with Dae-o and Ae-jeong's relationship later and this had always been something that he regretted. We see all of this take place in the promo and we also see Ryu Jin lash out at Dae-o when he finally tells him the truth. However, we are not sure if Ryu Jin mentions that he could possibly be the father of Ae-jeong's daughter. If that was revealed then there is definitely going to be a lot of tension between the two of them.
What is worse is the fact that the truth behind who Ha-nee's father is, is still something that the show stresses on, using it to hook viewers into watching each upcoming episode. There is also a scene of Dae-o confessing to Ae-jeong again and this time he seems a lot more forceful about his feelings. Ae-jeong might also be pushed to accept that what happened in the past might not be all Dae-o's fault. The misunderstanding between the two seems to be the cause of the struggle in the present and only when that is clarified can both of them move forward.
Then, there is Producer Pa-do whose role is still not something that we can understand. For now, we can guess that his wife used to look just like Ae-jeong and that is the reason why he is so attached to everything about Ae-jeong's business which includes chasing men who had the contract of her debt before him. What happened to his wife or why he hides photographs of him from his own son is something that we would also be seeing in the upcoming episode. This we know since we see Pa-do's son, who is also Ha-nee's friend, ask his father for a picture of his mother.
