My darling star-crossed MiGook couple! I hope Hye Mi kicked him in the knee before she allowed him to rest his head on her shoulder. Regardless of being a SamMi shipper, I squeed but good when I saw this picture. Almost made me forget the written preview for episode 9 of Dream High is out. And don’t you SamMi shippers worry – I’m still firming steering that ship. I’m just a sucker for a great romantic moment between any onscreen couple with great chemistry.
Episode 9 written preview:
At the last mid-terms of the year, Hye Mi, Jin Gook, and Pil Sook receive high marks, but it’s still not enough for the misfits class.
To earn more points, Jasosn suggests they perform “Dance of the Year” at a national dance competition. The kids will be split into two teams of four for the competition, and the group K will also compete. Hye Mi and Bae Hee are the respective team captains, and they each choose their team members….
On the other hand, Jin Gook’s relationship with his political daddy has been revealed by the paparazzi. Jin Gook’s father makes a major decision and calls Jin Gook to see him.
Video Preview (last scene of episode 8 plus preview for episode 9):
The ending of episode 8 was AWESOME! I love love love how DH is moving at such a fast pace, and the kids are growing, learning, and moving forward regardless of their unresolved and still maturing issues with each other. Watching Sam Dong and Hye Mi dance made me melt into a puddle of goo.
While Jin Gook had promised Hye Mi that he would debut with her on stage and he was the one who practiced the dance with her first – in reality its turned into Sam Dong singing with Hye Mi on stage first during the fake showcase, and now he’s learned the dance with her. My shippy heart is content.
I love how Jin Gook and Baek Hee were all shocked and incredulous at how much Hye Mi and Sam Dong have improved since they took off to debut as K. What did they expect? That everyone at Kirin would just keel over and give up? As DH heads into the second half, I think this drama can only get better and better. It’s not let me down yet, the perfect balance of emotional and plot-driven.
