A Love So Beautiful episode 13 continues Sol-i’s heartbreak as Cha Heon makes a few attempts to manage the situation. This chapter demonstrates how Cha Heon’s silent personality works against him.

This recap of Netflix K-Drama series A Love So Beautiful episode 13 contains significant spoilers.


After a genuine misunderstanding, an upset Sol-i walks home with Dae-sung. Her friend gives her encouragement and asks her to go to school the next day with a smile on her face. Cha Heon turns up, and Dae-sung gives him daggers. When Sol-i walks off, Dae-sung tells him that he likes her, and tells Cha Heon not to hurt her feelings. This is suddenly getting more complicated than it needs to be.

Jin-hwan offers to help ease the fallout

Jin-hwan offers to get Cha Heon back in Sol-i’s good books in exchange for a snack. Cha Heon walks up to Sol-i and gives her a bag of snacks. When Dae-sung walks in, he asks Sol-i if that bag is hers. She says no and Cha Heon moodily gives the bag back to Jin-hwan. Attempt #1 failed.

Hui-ji keeps asking for painkillers

Hui-ji asks the school doctor, Mr. Lee, for painkillers because her head hurts, but the doctor hesitates as she keeps asking for them. Mr. Lee asks Cha Heon if something is troubling Hui-ji and asks to look out for her. We never get to the root of Hui-ji’s issue, but something is really hampering her in Episode 13.

Cha Heon is struggling to juggle the problems

Dae-sung wants to make plans with Sol-i and keeps on supporting her. Hui-ji purposefully barges into her moments later. Cha Heon walks over and tells Hui-ji to walk into the school first. Sol-i calls Cha Heon a jerk. He’s terrible at trying to get back into the good books, and his quiet personality does not help.

Hui-ji is caught looking at exam papers

Late in the evening, Hui-ji is caught stealing exam papers and is berated. Hui-ji gets emotionally distressed and claims she was not cheating. Rumors quickly circulate about Hui-ji stealing the exam papers.

A lovely gesture

Ha-young and Jin-hwan plan for Sol-i to walk into the auditorium with Cha Heon playing the piano for her. She’s touched by the moment as Cha Heon plays a soothing song. But is it enough?

The ending

Later in the day, Dae-sung takes Sol-i to the arcade, and Cha Heon looks on hopelessly as she jumps on her friend’s bike. At the arcade, something is bothering Dae-sung’s shoulder. He gets a text from the head coach, asking him to go to the hospital.

At the hospital, he’s told he cannot compete for a while. Dae-sung rings Sol-i and asks her if she made it home safely. Cha Heon hears the phonecall and stands in the rain with an umbrella. He was planning to help her get home. Looks like he is going to have to work way harder.
