Love In Contract – K-Drama Episode 11 Recap & Review
The 11th episode of Love in Contract starts with reports of Sang-Eun becoming Hae-Jin’s wife spreading around the web. In the meantime, Jung arrives at the courthouse to greet Ji-Ho, who was not impressed. They then complete some pro-bono tasks and enjoy lunch with one of Ji Ho’s colleagues. This brings back memories of the past, like the fact that Jung did not care about Ji-Ho and would often mock Ji-Ho, spending long hours in the courthouse, and, in general, being a horrible partner.
However, this isn’t helped by the revelation of Sang-Eun’s image online as Ji-Ho is worried that Jung’s flaws as well as his previous relationship with a toxic one are likely to be replicated here. However, he calls Sang-Eun to tell her that she’s his trusty friend and will be waiting for her.
For Ji-Ho however, talks to his boss, who decides to let him move to an entirely different department in exchange for a promotion. Other employees applaud him, but soon realize that Hae-Jin’s girlfriend is very well-known. Jung was playing with damage management and blurred as many photos of Sang-Eun on the internet as possible and is working quickly to safeguard the image of the star.
As for Hae-Jin, he is worried when he finds out that his mom is back in the habit of drinking. She was an alcohol addict and had to stop drinking 10 years ago. However, it appears like she’s back again which is to the dismay of her young son. However, he is confronted by Madam Yoo who gets involved and attempts to get the two up. She says they’re the perfect couple and it’s the fault of Sang-Eun since she “doesn’t know what happiness is.” Despite playing matchmaker Hae-Jin isn’t having any of it and advises her to quit playing games. But, she doesn’t do a similar thing, and she tells Gwang Nam to leave Sang-Eun.
Sang-Eun makes a decision to complete one last act for Hae-Jinby going to visit his father, and telling him what she thinks about the proposal to marry. However, Jung gets the upper-hand first and explains what’s going to transpire in Hae-Jin’s conversation. The meeting is awkward, and Sang-Eun takes control, telling them they won’t be getting married because it’s affecting Hae-Jin’s health, and he’s experiencing anxiety attacks. Hae-Jin has remained silent throughout everything I might be adding.
After the final meeting, Sang Eun goes home and goes to Ji-Ho’s house, where he’s got a complete notebook filled with her questions. Ji-Ho is asked if they are officially married… however, it’s been 13 days already. It’s a hilarious show and then, even though it’s over their bedtime, they decide to tackle the 496-question list Ji-Ho asks her.

Lee Sun-Ho is one of her former clients she divorced 8 years ago.
Sun-Ho is on track for being accused of stalking, however, Sang-Eun is able to meet with his sister. She is begging for leniency and then apologizes for his behavior.

The Episode Review
This is basically where we began when Sang-Eun’s problems with online access There are some good moments sprinkled in the process. The scene in the question notebook with Ji-Ho is an instance, and it has amazing humor and is a standout.
The show is a decent romantic drama, but as I’ve mentioned in the previous recaps, HaeJin’s appearance here isn’t adding any value to the plot. In reality, he’s subverting her work and pushing her into the spotlight. Her identity was exposed and his silence at the dinner table, while Sang-Eun is left to do all the talking isn’t an ideal situation.
Of obviously, Ji-Ho’s not the perfect person either, and from the end of the show, it would appear that things are set to get more dramatic with him, too.
