Jay Investment representative Min Young-ki approaches Jae-gon and offers him US$5,000 to ensure that Joon-gil is maimed during the arrest as payback. Jae-gon reluctantly agrees, but a botched arrest sends Joon-gil on the run, and Jae-gon decides the best way to find him again is by sticking with Hye-kyung, hoping she will lead him to the fugitive. Hye-kyung now works as a bar hostess to pay off her substantial debt to Jong-ho, and Jae-gon threatens his way into an undercover job as a floor manager at the nightclub she works at. Introducing himself as Joon-gil’s former cellmate Lee Young-joon, Jae-gon begins to spend time with the suspicious Hye-kyung and gradually wins her trust.

It was indeed my honour to encounter a drama that without a doubt new how to fulfill the meaning of a romantic comedy. The Greatest Love is without a doubt a must watch, the characters are without a doubt unforgettable, and if I do dare type, its ending is one of the best -if not the best- finales a drama has given its viewers. So I sincerely hope that anyone who stumbles upon this post of mine learns to laugh abundantly and perhaps even cry wholeheartedly along with “Extra Special Top Star Doko Jin” and “National Treasure Visual Singer Goo Ae Jung” just as much as we who have already sailed on this Greatest Love boat do again and again. #Recharge
