Episode 7 is not going to change at this point, so we may as well accept the series for what it is — this chapter continues to present a bonkers story with no substance at all.
This recap of the K-Drama Netflix series Hello, Me! episode 7 contains spoilers.
There’s something about this series that lulls me into boredom. Maybe it doesn’t help that I watch is straight after Sisyphus: The Myth.
To open up episode 7, Han Yu-hyeon brings a very drunk Ha-ni home. The teen version is suspicious of Han Yu-hyeon, believing he likes her. Ha-ni (teen) nearly trips up and references a TV show from years ago. Ha-ni suddenly gets up to help clarify the situation but ends up throwing up all over Han Yu-hyeon. Anthony enters the apartment, and he’s confused seeing the younger version of Ha-ni and learns she’s “the daughter” of Ha-ni. He is extremely suspicious of this situation.
Anthony wants his photo back
And it seems Anthony (or Chun-sik) is smarter than what he acts in Hello, Me! episode 7.
Anthony goes for drinks afterwards, and he remembers what the younger Ha-ni looks like. He’s starting to wonder if the young girl is also Ha-ni. Ha-ni wakes up the next day hungover, so Ha-ni (teen) gives her a drink to help her. Ha-ni then learns Han Yu-hyeon carried her home, and she wants to know details, but then Anthony comes over; he asks for his photo back and tells Ha-ni that “her daughter” used it to blackmail him. Ha-ni (teen) tells Ha-ni that Anthony is Chun-sik, and she’s in shock. Outside, Anthony tries to get Ha-ni to accept the money to stop the blackmail, but she doesn’t want it as it is wrong. She then refers him Chun-sik and tells him that he’s not better than her pitiful self and that she doesn’t want to see him again.
Ha-ni (teen) admits to Ha-ni that she was annoyed that Chun-sik was living the life as a hotshot while she lives like this, so she pranked him.
There’s a competition at work
At work, Ha-ni learns about competition with a cash prize. Oh Ji-eun thinks Ha-ni should enter the competition and sarcastically tells her that she may get lucky again after the accidental PR move in the last chapter. She then reveals that she accidentally threw away the samples to try, and Oh Ji-eun berates her again, asking Ha-ni to prove she has worth in this team.
Arguing over Ha-ni
Han Yu-hyeon and Anthony bump into each other again while clothes shopping. They argue over Ha-ni; there’s a fierce rivalry over her. Anthony reveals that he and Ha-ni kissed one time, but he’s referring to an accidental smooch when they were younger, which frustrates Han Yu-hyeon. The only issue with this storyline is that the writers are not doing enough to entice the audience into a potential romance.
At work, Han Yu-hyeon asks Ha-ni if they can go for a meal after helping her the night before. She declines, stating she is busy, and then the conversation turns to the company competition — it’s a tasting tournament. Later on, Joa Confectionery has a dispute with strawberry farmers, so Oh Ji-eun goes to meet them with her team. The farmers dismiss her and walk out.
Ha-ni rings Han Yu-hyeon and asks him for recipes that involve strawberries. Suddenly, the farmers return, and Ha-ni walks in with a basket of strawberries. She gives them a buffet of different recipes made by strawberries — they are impressed by how tasty the meals are, and Ha-ni puts it down to their brilliant farming. They give Joa Confectionery another chance. Oh Ji-eun returns to the company and tells Ji-man and the board that they need to continue with these farmers and become a more responsible company to pave the way for a better future. Ji-man agrees, but his wife, who is plotting against him, is not pleased.
Oh Ji-eun has a word in private with Ha-ni; she thanks her for securing the tasty strawberries. She recognises her hard work. As the episode ends, Ha-ni tells Oh Ji-eun that she wants to take part in the competition and prove herself to the team.
