A boy of perfect example has found out about the true identity of a girl disguised as a boy to study at the boy-only academy Sungkyunkwan in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.”
In the October 18 episode, Lee Seon-jun (Micky) leaves school to marry Ha Hyo-eun (Seo Hyo-rim), but he in fact has feelings for Kim Yun-hee (Park Min-young), whom he believes to be a boy, and thus feels confused.
Seon-jun encounters Yun-hee, who has come to see him, but treats her coldly on purpose. Unable to suppress his feelings, however, he tells Hyo-eun that he can’t marry her and goes to look for Yun-hee.
Finding her among the crowd, Seon-jun says, “You know how highly I think of morals and manners in living in society, but I’ve come to like you despite the fact you are a boy. But I will not make you humiliated and ostracized because of my feelings. I will never come to see you again. That’s all that I can do for you now.”
Seon-jun goes to a remote mountain to concentrate on studying, but he can’t stop thinking about Yun-hee and fails to lead a daily life properly.
Meanwhile, fellow students at Sungkyunkwan visit the mountain under the excuse of going to a picnic, but they actually want to meet Seon-jun to persuade him to return to school.
Seon-jun happens to see Yun-hee looking for a quiet place away from her other classmates. He first turns his back to avoid her, against his feelings, but soon he runs to her and once again confesses his uncontrollable feelings. Yun-hee tries to reach him when she slips and falls into the water.
Seon-jun rescues her and unties her robe to do CPR, only to find out that she is a girl, not a boy, when he sees a bandage wrapped around her bosom.
Now all eyes are on whether the two can develop a romance. “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:55 p.m. on KBS2.
