Ep 8 of Doctor Slump

Jeong Woo continues to express his feelings for Ha Neul, who appears shy and flustered during their conversation. Their hand-holding moment leaves Ha Neul blushing and questioning the nature of their relationship. However, her younger brother, Han Ba Da, notices her unusual behavior and becomes curious about her feelings for Mr. Rooftop. He approaches Jeong Woo and asks him to officially date his sister, assuming they're not already in a relationship. This revelation embarrasses Ha Neul, who had been hiding in Jeong Woo's bathroom, and overhears the entire conversation.

Jeong Woo and Ha Neul plan their first date, but it gets repeatedly interrupted for various reasons. Despite the challenges, they eventually manage to make it work. However, upon returning home from their date, Jeong Woo discovers a wedding invitation from Kyung Min, which deeply unsettles Ha Neul. She becomes distant and unreachable the following day. Concerned, Jeong Woo visits the hospital and finds Ha Neul crying during her therapy session. He then returns home, where Ha Neul's brother and mother confront him and drag him inside. While in his girlfriend's room he discovers a photograph of her with his senior and friend, Kyung Min.

Was Park Shin Hye’s character in love with Kyung Min?

Indeed, it seems that way. As Park Hyung Sik gazes at the picture, he recalls Ha Neul mentioning that she had dated someone before and wonders if Kyung Min was the same person. Meanwhile, small revelations indicate that Kyung Min was initially a supportive and friendly senior to Park Shin Hye, which left her flustered in her early professional days. However, he later betrayed her by using her dissertation under his name and failing to give her due credit.
