What a great week for this series, so let’s hope Racket Boys episodes 9 and 10 keep up this energy as it is brilliant so far. Here is where we are with the lead characters:
- Woo-chan tries to quit in episode 8 due to his father’s dissatisfaction with his passion, but Hyeon-jong offers him some wise words and encourages him to keep playing.
- In-sol seems to be a good strategist; maybe he could be a coach in the future?
- In the tournament, Hae-kang suffers from an ankle injury.
- Woo-chan also injures himself, but it is not as serious.
- We learn that Woo-chan’s father watches his son in secret. He tells his son to keep going with his passion. Hopefully, this will give Woo-chan peace of mind.
- Despite his injury, Hae-kang beats Seong-heon, and everyone is elated
- Coach Fang tells Hyeon-jong that Yoon-dam has been picked for the National Youth Team.
- Hae-kang’s injury is worse than feared, and he needs to rest for two weeks with a cast on.
- In a happy and surprising twist, Hae-kang is also selected for the national youth team.
- At the end of episode 8, Hae-kang’s latest rival, Park-chan, makes it known he likes Se-yoon, and he wants to ask her out.
Racket Boys episodes 9 and 10 release date
Episode 9 will be released on Netflix on June 28, 2021. The usual time is 4:00 pm (GMT), but sometimes this varies. We do not anticipate any changes to the schedule yet (sometimes this happens in the K-Drama world.) Episode 10 will be released at the same time the day after.
Summary and predictions for Racket Boys episodes 9 and 10
- The focus must turn to Se-yoon, Hae-Kang, and Park-chan — this may turn into a love triangle, and we feel it might make the rivalry even more intense on the badminton court. Will Hae-kang shoot his shot and make his romantic intentions known? We feel something drastic will have to happen for Hae-kang to speak up, especially since he’s quite introverted.
- With the team on the rise, how will they react to having two nationals on the team? Will priorities change?
- It seems Hae-kang has chosen badminton over baseball, but we can still sense there will be another twist in this, especially with the baseball coach eager to talk to him.
