Shooting Stars Episode 8 Recap contains spoilers
Tae-sung sits stunned as Han-byul flees after Tae-sung tells her that he likes her in Shooting Stars Episode 8. Tae-sung’s words reverberate in her head, and she can’t believe what she’s hearing. When Tae-sung’s doorbell rings again, he thinks it’s Han-byul, but it’s actress Eun Si-woo. Tae-sung refers to her mother in his memories, but he has no fond memories of her.
Tae-sung has a nightmare about Eun Si-woo, which is followed by a lovely Han-byul dream. Han-byul and Tae-sung attended the same college and collaborated on a project. Tae-sung had always liked Han-byul but had never expressed his feelings to her. Han-byul was the same way, but she shut down after having to write an article about Tae-sung and his now ex-girlfriend.
Tae-sung wanted to express his feelings to Han-byul once more, this time more clearly. However, when he sees her conversing with Lawyer Do, he loses faith in her. Han-byul arrives at Tae-sung’s set against her will, where Tae-sung is filming a kissing scene. He runs into Han-byul after the kissing scene and tries to explain to her that the kissing scene is just his work, similar to how she writes a PR article. When a reporter calls Han-byul, his chance to confess to her is taken away once more.
Lawyer Do and Tae-sung meet at the stairwell when Do returns from work and Tae-sung leaves for work. Lawyer Do makes a deliberate call to Han-byul in front of Tae-sung, telling her that he will send her the address of the restaurant where they are supposed to eat dinner. It works because he does it to make Tae-sung jealous.
Shooting Stars Episode 8 Ending
Tae-sung wonders what he has done wrong for Han-byul to hate him so much, and the list is long. When his ex-girlfriend runs into him on the set while he is following Han-byul, he realises his biggest mistake. Han-byul notices her and drives away. Tae-sung had no intention of dating that woman, but he agreed to do so because his rival actor had a crush on her.
Lawyer Do has been waiting for Han-byul at the restaurant, but she is not interested in joining him for dinner. Gi-ppeum pushes her to leave, but she gets a call telling her that she needs to work on something. But it wasn’t about work; it was about Tae-sung. He had texted her several times and was also expecting her somewhere. Han-byul had been single until now, but she now has two suitors. She considers her options and decides to go out. She goes to Tae-sung instead of Lawyer Do, but it’s unclear whether it’s for work or personal reasons.
Shooting Stars Episode 8 Review
In Shooting Stars Episode 8, Tae-sung has become more gentle and has begun to recognise his errors. He was too late to realise his feelings for Han-byul, but he had previously behaved immaturely, which is now preventing him from dating Han-byul.
