Episode 5 was by far my favorite. I may sound like a broken record, but Dream High really is getting better by the episode. Ep. 5 was poignant and funny. Now the students are all at
Kirin and are starting to strive for their goals. The show no longer relies solely on outside forces to cause problems. Hye-mi continues to fight against others, but the real obstacle now is herself. She has to learn that she’s not perfect and has to be able to slowly break down the wall around her heart.
NOTE: The following is not an actual recap of the drama but is more of a concentrated recap of the character Kang Oh-hyuk in Dream High.
Kang Oh-hyuk will be shortened to Kang in the following recap.
Kang reprimands Hye-mi for making a bet against Baek-hee. Is she crazy!? She can’t even take lessons right now, how does she possibly think she can beat Baek-hee in the upcoming test?
Hye-mi declares that she’ll win. It’s just that she’ll need some help. Kang can’t hear her mumbling and asks her to speak up. Hye-mi whispers a little louder that she needs help, but Kang still can’t hear her. Jin-gook shouts that Hye-mi asked for your help, and Kang can’t help but smile.
Sam-dong says if they all join forces, they can overcome this wall and turn it into a bridge. As the special class decides that all three will try their best to succeed, another student enters. Kim Pil-sook has been demoted to their class and shyly asks if they can make it a quartet rather than a trio.
Kang meets up with Yang Jin-man and asks him to teach the special class. Jin-man ignores Kang until Kang shouts out if he wants the students to be like him. Does Jin-man want to see those kids trust in Kang to only be let down and have their talents buried.
