He sighs as he says to himself dating is really expensive. When another text comes through, he looks around in confusion. Then he remembers the cell phone from Philip and checks it. There are a slew of texts from clients with pleas for advice on their love lives. He decides he may have to take Philip up on the job offer to earn money to pay his credit card bills. One of the texts catches his eye. From now on she just wants to date instead of focusing on love or a long-term relationship.
The next day, their lessons begin. The first lesson is Chapter 1: Taking stock of the potential men around her. She finds prospect number one right away when she collides with Jin-gook on the stairs outside of a building on campus. Ki-dae advises her to take a logical approach and gather data on him so she takes a long look at Jin-gook. He awkwardly releases her and stares at the ground. Yeon-ae surprises him by asking if he wants to grab lunch.
Ki-dae texts that she should play hard to get and let the man make the first move, but Yeon-ae seems to be doing just fine without him. After he texts Yeon-ae, he meets Sae-rom for a date and they end up at the same restaurant as Yeon-ae and Jin-gook. Thus, Ki-dae moves on to Chapter 2: Seeing what the other person is like. At lunch, Yeon-ae and Ki-dae surreptiously text each other under the table.
Yeon-ae wants to know what she should do next. He finally texts back that she needs to be herself while removing some of the less attractive aspects. Apparently, Sae-rom is the only one who gets it right. She nonchalantly lets Ki-dae pay then offers to treat him to coffee later. Later when Ki-dae introduces Sae-rom to his friends, she sweetly feeds him fruit and gushes over how well he treats her. Yeon-ae has another dating fail when she embarrasses Jin-gook in front of his friends.
She takes a shot for him when he loses a drinking game. Ki-dae tells her to move on to Chapter 3: She cheerfully agrees, then immediately puts her books away to head out. She makes Ki-dae wait for her outside school. He ends up sending her home in a taxi instead. In the meantime, Yeon-ae and Jin-gook make their way to the subway. Yeon-ae is still leery of taking the subway and she lies that she bikes to and from school for the exercise now.
Jin-gook excitedly invites her on a bike ride. She readily accepts and looks pained when she realizes she failed again at the push-pull game. She crashes to the ground before she can move two feet on the bike. Jin-gook rushes to help her up, but he happens to stand in front of her as he tries to pull her to her feet, and she gets a full view of his crotch. This is made even more hilarious because Jin-gook is in full riding gear, i.
She cowers back to the ground to avoid the sight. Jin-gook is absolutely determined to succeed, but Yeon-ae quits after falling one too many times. She returns home that night dejected. He predicts Jin-gook will call first. Within moments, Jin-gook calls and Yeon-ae primps in the mirror before going down to see him.
A fresh-faced Yeon-ae greets Jin-gook outside her house. I howled with laughter and I was hooked in less than five minutes nice touch with the Jaws music playing in the background for this opening scene! The video somebody took of the octopus incident goes viral: Cha Gi Dae Choi Daniel , an unemployed medical student, and Jung Jin Gook Im Siwan a dental student living with his rich parents. Teaching the class is a relationship instructor named Philip Oh Jung Se and he shows the infamous clip on the projector of the "Octopus Girl" pelting her ex-boyfriend with octopus legs, and dousing him with water.
No one knows that Yeon Ae is that girl in the video, although she almost slips up by having an emotional outburst defending "Octopus Girl" during the class. Philip counters that the way "Octopus Girl" behaved in public just signals to people that she meant nothing more than a ONS - One Night Stand - to her ex. Neither Gi Dae or Jin Gook see Yeon Ae's face in the class because there are so many students, but they are soon both going to fall in love with her! BoA with leading men Daniel Choi and Siwan Im Philip the teacher ends the class telling them that if they want personal dating advice they have only to text him and he will help them when he can.
Once the class breaks up Philip, knowing Gi Dae's financial plight and his unhappiness with his current girlfriend Choi Sae Rom Kim Ji Won , forcibly switches cell phones with him before Gi Dae can stop him. Almost immediately Gi Dae is bothered with constant text rings from students asking for his dating advice! But there is only one he seems motivated to answer: Yeon Ae Octopus Girl! She confesses to him via text that she is Octopus Girl and can he offer her advice on how to date without becoming emotionally involved with the other person?
She never wants to have another public outburst like that one again and she thinks staying cool, calm, and collected is the best way to have a successful dating experience. Btw, the trivia K-drama sites get this wrong in their descriptions, Gi Dae is not an experienced dating counselor - one wonders who writes these "official reviews" from KBS World and such, they are often so wrong it's laughable! Kim Ji Won gives a good performance as a character who thinks she loves Gi Dae, but she really thinks of him more as a trophy Through texting Gi Dae actually helps Yeon Ae by pointing out dating details from the male perspective.
He helps her to find her next boyfriend - to look for someone nice and normal - not the heels. She ends up tentatively dating Jin Gook but soon her past behavior of obsessiveness threatens that relationship too; she stalks him and mistrusts his every move. Then she sees him eating a meal with her best friend and her imagination goes wild again. As she moves to confront him for his "deceit" Gi Dae slows her down through texting: Find out the details first.
