Han-jun and Su-cheol are knocked unconscious by Tae-sus men, and a scared Hye-jun rushes to help her lover, and Jin-sang and Min-gyeong, already at the parking lot, discover Han-jun being kidnapped and begin recording the incident.

Hye-jun taps into Han-jun's glasses while Jae-hui follows the car with the number plate. Meanwhile, an unconscious Han-jun and Su-cheol are taken inside an abandoned warehouse where Tae-su discovers the hidden parts of the glasses and breaks them. Do-won, on the other hand, suggests that they separate once they are inside the complex.

Han-jun attempts to stop Tae-su from killing them both while awakening his friend. Su-cheol is just happily sleeping away, as Han-jun retaliates for Auntie Im's advice to get rid of Tae-su when the work is finished, which isn't pleasant to him at all. He asks his men to get rid of both of them.

Su-cheol beats Han-jun over the head to wake him up, and once that happens, he crushes everyone in his path, making everyone a laughing stock. When Jae-hui gets there and takes on her demonic form when one of the men attempts to stab Han-jun, it's even funnier.

Han-jun appears to be totally enamoured with his protector, after a lengthy fight sequence! Du-jin catch up to Tae-su and, at knifepoint, asks him whether he is Yeong-ju. Tae-su, of course, replies and finds a way to vanish.

The whole staff listens to the audio from the meeting in the evening and is shocked to see them laughing about killing Eun-hye. They decide who will gather what evidence, and everyone goes home. At Minamdang, Hye-jun seems to be more eager to see Su-cheol back safely than her brother, which annoys Han-jun to no end.

Hye-jun sends Su-cheol to the hospital and leaves Han-jun with Jae-hui. He is clearly uneasy with the attention being shown over him, but is this the beginning of a romantic bond? Jae-hui takes a tour of Minamdang, wherein she marvels at Han-jun's face. plus, the bobblehead she had given him!

With Jae-hui almost ready to kiss but Han-jun feigning injury at the last moment, the pair discuss how lucky Hye-jun is to have an older brother like him when she was young. It's a rather sweet moment Hye-jun expresses her love for Su-cheol and they kiss.

Han-jun and Jae-hui have fallen asleep on each other, and when Hye-jun and Su-cheol discover them, they are cuddling together on the couch. Han-jun threatens to murder both of them, however, if they do anything together, which Hye-jun promptly replies.

Jae-hui discovers the real Tae-sus contact number at the police station, but that turns out to be a dead-end as well. Du-jin inspects a disused house in (probably) a village and finds old photographs and such, presumably of the real Tae-su.

Han-jun decides to go to Forte restaurant to find Tae-su and invites Jae-hui to meet him. He calls him an investigation, but it's clear that it's a date in disguise. Seung-won advises him not to go down the path that he is going on because he will set things right no matter what.

Han-jun, Su-cheol, Jae-hui, and Hye-jun go to Tae-su's camping sites and try to find his abandoned RV, unaware that Tae-su is watching her using CCTV and intending to demolish the RV with her in it.

He must choose between apprehending Tae-su and saving Jae-hui then.

Cafe Minamdang Episode 12 Review

If anyone was hoping and wishing for Cafe Minamdang to keep pace, look no further. There are a lot of things going on in this episode, from the different relationships to progress and a good break.

I feel that the episode, like other shows, will have better secondary character romances than primary characters. Hye-jun and Su-cheol, both hilarious, make the perfect pair and are absolutely adorable. While Han-jun and Jae-hui are still taking it slow, which makes sense if you think of it this way. It's just not possible that you'd miss thrice.

The mystery is growing stronger, as Seung-wons' influence grows bigger. However, the small hint of a bigger evil keeps me hooked. Although the action sequences in this episode were silly, they were definitely worth it.

Lastly, the series has funnier moments than the previous few episodes, which I am grateful for. Most silly moments landed, and Su-cheol is too cute not to fall in love with immediately.

Overall, the episode is enjoyable and stick to its funny mystery-solving style while adding the romance that we have been waiting for for 11 episodes.

Cafe Minamdangis is now streaming onNetflix.
