Trot Lovers / Lovers of Music Episode 8 Review
I almost forgot Geun Woo still doesn’t know Joon Hyun lives with Choon Hee now. Last episode reminded me of that.
Joon Hyun isn’t happy as well that Choon Hee has just spent the night with Geun Woo, especially after he prepared food for her. Choon Hee eats it anyway. She realizes she left her phone and called Geun Woo. He told her to pick it up tomorrow.
Without realizing it, Joon Hyun has become more of an older brother image to Byeol. He helped her plant cabbages and looked as happy as Byeol that they have grown well.
Joon Hyun ditches the colored pants and goes for jeans that day. He paired it up with yet again another printed top. He’s also owning the crossbody bag look, eh?
He’s back to his colored pants in no time though as he helps Choon Hee limber up. Geun Woo walks in on their endearing interlude and gives Choon Hee back her phone. He wouldn’t just take thank you though. He invites himself to dinner at Choon Hee’s house.
Also, what a nifty way of wearing camo print! It’s so subtle but so effective.

His pants are from LeCoqSportif and his shoes are from Mizuno.
As expected, Joon Hyun was childish at dinner. He refused to let Geun Woo drink from his polka-dotted cup. Lol. Geun Woo pretends he doesn’t know Joon Hyun lives there.
Joon Hyun’s shirt is from Gap.
Joon Hyun wonders what Geun Woo could have possible seen in Choon Hee. Is it the eyes? No, they’re just ordinary eyes. Is it the nose? No. Is it the lips? No. Oh, her smile’s pretty. Lol. Joon Hyun stares at Choon Hee and realizes her smile is pretty.
Attention cat lovers out there. You’d want to check out Choon Hee’s cat face-printed shirt!
Joon Hyun and Choon Hee visits a record store and lo and behold, Choon Hee’s album now ranks third, just a slot below f(x)’s new album. Lol.
She also cleans up in a nice blue top and a pair of white shorts to do an interview.

Geun Woo also gifts her with a shiny, new car!
Jang Joon Hyun’s shirt here is from Greyhound.
And she also gets a brand endorsement deal!
How cute is Joon Hyun’s pink and blue ombre shirt? He wore a striped shirt underneath.
This shirt is from Vivienne Westwood.
Choon Hee is rising so fast, she overtakes Park Soo In. Her posters are taken out and replaced by Choon Hee’s.
She likes this cut of dress, doesn’t she? The coral color is refreshing on her though. And those tassel earrings are cute!
It’s Joon Hyun appreciation day! Choon Hee gave gifts to the people who helped her out previously and now it’s Joon Hyun’s turn.
Whatever happened to the feisty Na Pil Nyeo? Turns out she’s holding a tendre for her knight in shining armor, Seol Tae Song. She went to the restaurant he works in to meet her chat partner saw Tae Song there. They eventually realized who their chat partner’s identity is.
Na Pil Nyeo still has the most interesting wardrobe in this drama for the females, IMO. Love that flared gingham skirt!
It’s summer and there’s only one fan in the house. Joon Hyun tried to steal it but Choon Hee saw him. He was allowed to sleep in the same room as them though. They don’t know this but some voyeur is taking snapshots of them sleeping in one room.
Yang Hoo Jee gives Park Soo In tickets so she can invite Geun Woo. But Geun Woo declines politely as he has somewhere to go to.
I guess that LBD is wasted again Soo In!
Geun Woo’s appointment is with Choon Hee! He whisks her away to a ranch and teaches her to ride a horse.
Get Choi Choon Hee’s Sheer Top:
Soo In finds out from her mom’s friends that Geun Woo took a girl horse riding and came to the conclusion that it must have been Choon Hee. She confronted Choon Hee about it and asks her what she’s doing in the company – to sing or to date? And what is it with the black and white contrasting outfits they make the rivals wear in Kdramas whenever they are confronting each other? Also, check out Soo In’s statement earcuff!
The voyeur turned out to be a reporter paid by Yang Hoo Jee to spy on Choon Hee and get some dirt on her. The reporter gave the photos to Geun Woo. Geun Woo confronted Joon Hyun about the photo saying something like he should leave and not drag Choon Hee in a scandal, which he knows fully well would be the end of her.
Get Jang Joon Hyun’s Watch:
Akteto Clarinette Watch, 139,000 Won
Get Jang Joon Hyun’s Crossbody Bag:
Dolce & Gabbana Hat Tile Pattern Tote, 567,000 €
I like how straightforward Geun Woo is. It’s so rare in Kdramas, who often beats around the bush and lets circumstances do the revealing for them. He confronts Yang Hoo Jee about the photos, which he knows she perpetrated. She wasted no time denying it and called out Geun Woo for favoring Choon Hee.
Choon Hee’s dad makes another appearance as he pretends to be a fan and gives Joon Hyun his gift for her.
Joon Hyun gives his long-sleeved shirts a break and goes for this short-sleeved one.
Choon Hee received lots of gifts from fans. She opened one and that’s the one from her dad. Joon Hyun realizes the guy is actually her dad.
Joon Hyun took Geun Woo’s words to heart. He knows living in Choon Hee’s house can jeopardize her career. So he finally made a decision to move away. He talks to President Jo first and the President couldn’t believe his ears that Joon Hyun is dropping everything – even the promise of a comeback album.
And then he does a “My Sassy Girl” parody when he instructs Chul Man and Yoo Sik on how to manage Choon Hee with the movie’s theme song I Believe playing in the background. Lol. I knew it’s about time another drama parodies My Sassy Girl again!
He also takes Choon Hee out for a break, even singing her a song. The two looks so in sync in their matching blue and white coordinates.
And then at dinner, he finally breaks it to Choon Hee. He’s living and he’s pursuing his own career and Choon Hee can manage well without him.

Joon Hyun sends off Byeol and gives her sound instructions but the kid just brushes it off saying he’s there to remind her of forgotten homeworks anyway.

He takes Choon Hee one last time to recording. Choon Hee told him he should be there when she comes back. But after recording, she comes out to find the hallway empty. No Joon Hyun.
I guess this is the first time I’m having a Choon Hee wardrobe envy. Love this classic white shirt punched up by those printed details on the collar!
