Love is for suckers was scheduled to be released on 2 November 2022, but the release date was delayed as the Korean government has officially announced a mourning period in the wake of the recent Itaewon tragedy. More and more shows and music video releases are being delayed as the Prime minister announced a week-long mourning period until 5 November.
The wait is over, and the drama’s next episode release date has been announced, and we are here to guide you through it. Love is for Suckers premiered on 5 October 2022, with a runtime of about 1 hour and 10 minutes. It has 16 episodes, of which Eight are released. The 8 episode was released on 27 October 2022. This show has Lee Ga Hee, and Choi Si Won as the main leads.
It shows the story of Goo Yeo Reum, a television producer. She is a hard worker and has been working in this field for almost ten years. She has had some bad luck as all the shows she runs seem to flop. To redeem this bad luck, she was given the opportunity to produce a new reality TV dating show called “kingdom of Love.”
She struggles in the pre-production stage to find a suitable bachelor to appear in the program. She runs into Park Jae Hoon, her neighbor, and best friend, for twenty years, for help. Park Jae Hoon is a burned-out plastic surgeon who lost all passion for his work and life. Seeing Yeo Reum’s desperation, he agrees to be on the show.
As the show progresses, we get to see the blossoming of Love between these long-time friends. This is the classic Producer/castmate romance that we all waited for, and we are here to give you all the details about the show.
Love is for suckers Episode Recap
Last weekend we saw our favorite couple fall apart. The last two episodes were filled with conflicts and drama. The dissimilarity between Chae Ri ( Joo Soo Hyang) and Yeo Reum was more prominent. Chae Ri is cunning and wants to make some good moments that could help the rating of the show, while Yeo-Reum is caught between ethics in the world of reality show biz.
Our Hero, Jae Hoon, is head over heels in love with Yeo Reum, but she is avoiding him like the plague. He even was ready to set his sister up with Sang Woon (Lee Dae Hwi) because he thought he and Yeo Reum were having a secret affair. Meanwhile, the reality show Ji Wan (Sohn Hwa Ryung) reveals that she was abused in middle school, and it was the reason why she did not want to date.
She says she wants to change this attitude. This moment was caught on camera, and Ji Wan doesn’t want this to go on air. Yeo Reum agrees with her and talks to Chae Ri about this, but she is adamant about keeping this on the show. Yeo Reum talks her out of this by saying that they will film the kiss scene between Jae Hoon and Ji Yeon (Lee Ju Yeon), which she disagreed with before.
When Yeo Reum mentioned the kiss scene to Jae Hoon, he was heartbroken. He confronts her by saying that he cannot believe she said this even after confessing his Love for her. Yeo Reum brushes this off by saying it was just a kiss. This infuriates him prompting him to kiss her, and guess what? This kiss was caught on camera. When she came back home, she was confronted by Ji Yeon about the kiss.
Apparently, she saw them make out. She threatened to leave the show if Yeo Reum did not set a clear boundary between her and Jae Hoon. She agrees to this as she does not want Ji Yeon to leave the show. She ends up telling Jae Hoon that the kiss did not mean anything and she does not have any feelings for him. This broke our poor hero’s heart.
And now the plot twist comes, as the new episode was aired, they found out that Chae Ri had done some last-minute editing to spice up the show. In addition to the kiss scene, she also includes a secret conversation between Jae Hoon and Ji Yeon the night she was considering quitting the show. Neither of them knew they were filmed, and Ji Yeon was seen crying, implying that she was not the one who kissed him. Ji Yeon and Jae Hoon blame Yeo Reum for this new turn of events.
Now that Jae Hoon was a celebrity, the rumor that he caused the murder of a patient spread like wildfire on the internet. In addition to all the drama that has been going on on the set, now they also have to deal with this.
In the next episode, we will see the aftermath of this new release. Will their gap widen as they show progress? We have to wait and see. We also have to worry about the reputation of Jae Hoon as the internet is about to get to him. Let’s cross our fingers and get ready for the next episode.
