Summary

Apart from the “Dae-sung liking Sol-i story”, episode 9 is a bit of a lifeless chapter with nothing else really going on.

This recap of Netflix K-Drama series A Love So Beautiful episode 9 contains significant spoilers.


The opening

At school, Sol-i is a little quiet after recently learning that Dae-sung wrote a note saying he likes her. She’s acting awkward around him. Sol-i shows Ha-young the note; she tells him to go out with him as Dae-sung is handsome and sweet, plus the money he wins from swimming is a bonus.

Sol-i confronts Dae-sung about the note

But Sol-i is clearly not comfortable with the situation and decides to have the conversation with Dae-sung in episode 9. Sol-i heads to the swimming hall and meets Dae-sung. She’s still looking rather awkward and eventually brings up his note that she saw from the game. Dae-sung looks downbeat that she saw it and brushes it off as a joke — he claims no-one takes that game seriously. Sol-i is relieved. Afterwards, Dae-sung swims, and he’s clearly lying — he genuinely does like Sol-i. It’s etched on his face. Dae-sung walks into school the next day with a brave face on and hands everyone chocolate milk. He keeps looking at Sol-i and Cha Heon, and he’s still upset. He should have been honest.

The ending

Sol-i needs to prep for a debate, and Hui-ji offers to support her. But rather than practising, Sol-i spends time with Cha Heon over the weekend. Back at school, Hui-ji and her friend tell her Sol-i that she needs to debate better in class, or they will lose. In the debate, Sol-i uses Dae-sung as an example of an accomplished person who didn’t go to university, and it really helps her argument.

After her success, Sol-i and her friends hang out and laugh together.

Apart from the “Dae-sung liking Sol-i story”, A Love So Beautiful episode 9 is a bit of a lifeless chapter with nothing else really going on.

Additional points
  • Ha-young sees Jin-hwan getting bullied and helps him out. They manage to fight the bullies off and run away together. Jin-hwan admits that he keeps losing his money because of these bullies.
