Pinocchio Episode 4 Review
Choi In Ha finally met her mom. But her bubble was burst because her mom treated her like a stranger. This prompted In Ha to pack all her books and burn them. Dal Po stopped her and told her he’ll need the books because he too wants to become a reporter.
In Ha found strength to go on from Dal Po’s words. She’s ashamed of her failures as she knows Dal Po has more brains than her but she was the one who went to college.
The dad, surprisingly, was pretty lenient after In Ha’s momentary disappearance. He still gave his permission to let In Ha pursue a career in the news reporting industry.
Get Choi In Ha’s Hoodie (Park Shin Hye Hoodie):
Her pants are from Abercombie & Fitch, her shirt is from Sandro and her necklace is from Agatha Paris.
Dal Pyeong was there at the rooftop when Dal Po and In Ha were talking. Dal Po insisted there’s nothing romantic between them and Dal Pyeong said that should be the case because he wants what’s best for In Ha.
But the daughter he puts on a pedestal can be a bit of a slob sometimes. Lol.
Meanwhile, Jae Myeong insisted not to have his truck be reimbursed for the damages even though his co-worker told him he could use the money to upgrade the truck.
True to his words, Dal Po really studied to become a reporter. And what is this saturation of navy clothing in this drama?

They’ve been hiding Dal Po’s intelligence from the dad all these years but it turned out he already knows Dal Po’s smart. He also knows Dal Po isn’t his real son and that he’s just pretending for his sake. But even with this knowledge, he still loves and cares for Dal Po like he would his real son.
Dal Pyeong chokes on his words when he saw how handsome-looking Dal Po is. And when In Ha stands next to him in that jacket worn with its hood at the front, Dal Pyeong becomes even more ashamed of her daughter’s fashion sense (or lack thereof). Lol.
You have to admit, In Ha’s way of wearing her hoodie comes handy when eating chips!
Choi Dal Po’s sweater here is from J. Crew.

Both Dal Po and In Ha got in during the preliminary round.
During the second round, the staff at YGN showed them a news clip of a demolition that happened a few days before. They saw a body during the scene. It turned out that the body was the fire fighter who died a few years ago and was thought to have abandoned his team. It was Dal Po’s dad. But the media didn’t so much as report that his remains have already been found and this angered Dal Po.
When they were asked what they thought of the incident, In Ha said the reporters were at fault but with the evidence at hand, casting the blame on the fire fighter was a natural conclusion. This angered Dal Po and told her this is why a Pinocchio couldn’t make it as a reporter.
They asked if In Ha was a Pinocchio and she had no choice but to answer yes, which pretty much ended her journey at the competition. Bum Jo helped her get out, ending his own career at YGN.
As for Dal Po, he cried his heart out. His dad has been dead all along and he has only now realized he blamed him a little for what they went through when he was the victim all along.
