Pinocchio Episode 8 Review
As smart as he is, Dal Po knew the connection is not just a mere coincidence. But he still talked to his brother amicably.
Jae Myeong was nice enough. He wanted to give back the money Dal Po gave to his friend but Dal Po didn’t accept it, saying he should have given more. When Jae Myeong asked him about his occupation, he covered up the fact that he’s a reporter knowing Jae Myeong would hate him for it, and said he’s a former taxi driver on leave.
Dal Po followed his brother to know where his home is.
After pulling that stunt when he went to investigate the case of Moon Duk Soo all by himself, the sunbaes are ready to give him hell. But Dal Po just accepted his mistakes and took it all in stride.
If their idea of making Bum Jo look haggard and exhausted is to make one side of his hair look unruly, the stylists better think of something more convincing. Lol. He just looks like a pouty kid to me.
In Ha and her mom got into an argument at the rest room. The mom still refuses to acknowledge the good things In Ha did. Unbeknownst to them, they’re being watched by the other reporters including Seo Bum Jo.
Is it just me or is Gyo Do still wearing the exact same thing from last episode? Dal Po has changed into a sleek coat already. He entrusted the details of Dal Po’s brother to Yoon Yoo Rae, expecting Dal Po to be overjoyed by the help. But instead, Dal Po thanked him politely. He already met his brother and even knew where he lived.
Get Choi Dal Po’s Coat (Lee Jong Suk Coat):
Things get awkward fast between these two when they find themselves alone. Lol. In Ha has been avoiding Dal Po like the plague after their last confrontation but Dal Po made it easier for her by not asking questions.
The bigger and thicker the coat, the better seems to what’s going on in this drama. Choi Dal Po’s outer coat is from the Ermenegildo Zegna F/W 2014 Collection.
Finally, the kiss we’ve all been waiting for! And trust them to make the scene more dramatic by positioning them in a deserted area, under the Christmas lights, whilst heavily snowing.
Seo Bum Jo’s fuzzy sweater here is actually nicked from her mom? Kidding! No, seriously, it’s from McQ’s womenswear line.
Get Seo Bum Jo’s Sweater (Kim Young Kwang Sweater):
In Ha got a call from Gong Joo sunbae that she’ll be reporting for MBC live. This made her the first rookie to make a television appearance, sparking envy in her colleagues.
Get Choi In Ha’s Sweater (Park Shin Hye Sweater):
An Chan Soo asked Dal Po if he was there at the town square when they went out searching for Moon Dok Soo. Chan Soo swore he saw Dal Po there but Dal Po denied being in the area.
Turned out Gyo Do’s attire is justified since Dal Po’s still wearing the same thing underneath the coat.
Dal Po was about to go into the reporter’s room when he was stopped by Yoon Yoo Rae. Yoo Rae rejected him out of the blue. Seo Bum Jo told him that he told In Ha’s grand father and dad, who was in the room after hearing that In Ha will appear on TV, that Dal Po likes Yoon Yoo Rae.
Look at how dramatic Seo Bum Jo’s coat is. He usually looks more conspicuous than Dal Po, probably because of the abundance of fur.
In Ha has gussied up for the occasion (if gussying up means dunking your hair in the toilet to wash out all the shampoo). She got rid of the parka and went for a utilitarian double-breasted boxy coat.

In Ha’s first assignment is to report slipping and sliding incidents on slippery roads that usually happen during the winter season. They had to set up their cameras at places where slipping is most likely to happen.
Team Dal Po is also doing the same thing so it’s basically a battle as to who will find the most dramatic slip.
The coat isn’t sufficient so In Ha threw on a pink padded jacket much like her sunbae’s.

Dal Po was out looking for the best spots when he saw Jae Myeong’s truck. Coincidentally, Jae Myeong saw him peeking at the truck and overheard a neighbourhood ahjumma call Dal Po reporter. This made Jae Myeong instantly suspicious of Dal Po’s identity.
In Ha couldn’t do the report. She just couldn’t stand there and watch people slip so she started hiccupping.

Meanwhile, Jae Myeong followed Dal Po and cornered him. He asked why he’s been snooping around his truck and why he lied about his occupation.
While filming, In Ha’s team spotted a young boy in a crutch hobbling his way across the pedestrian. A man driving a big truck suddenly slid on the slippery road and was about to hit the boy when Jae Myeong’s truck hit it and stopped it from killing the boy. He went to the boy, bloody head and all, called him Ha Myeong and asked him if he’s injured. As for In Ha’s team, they’re filming everything.
