Poor Min Seok, once Soo Young finds out his real age it is hard to see past that number. I can understand where she is coming from. It is hard enough to be in a large age gap relationship when you actually know about it. To find out that you were a cougar this whole time unknowingly is kind of life altering. That combined with the whole "my whole life is a lie" aspect of her boyfriend is enough to make anyone run away. And let's not forget the stalker girl sitting in the wings yelling at her sister every time she gets a chance.
Soo Young is understandably upset that her sister is only thinking of Min Seok and her own issues instead of how devastating it was to find out that your beloved boyfriend is really ten years younger then expected. In true selfish teenage fashion Yoo Ah is unable to see beyond her own feelings and yells at her sister for thinking that she could have Min Seok, calling her grandma and pretty much just saying anything hateful that might hurt her Soo Young. The tension is broken (at least for us viewers) when the two girls end up having a pillow fight before Yoo Ah storms off. I thought it was interesting how we saw the remnants of the fight stay on the floor (the feathers from the pillow) through the whole episode. Just another reminder that everything has fallen apart for our heroine.
Soo Young runs away to her rural home where she roams the town and pines for Min Seok. It doesn't actually say she is pining, but I will assume she is since who would not be missing that awesome bundle of yumminess? Yoo Ah gives White Ricecake (that nickname is awesome) the heads up on Soo Young's location and he runs off to attempt to woo her back. All I can say is way to little to late. You had your chance and you were a total jerk. But at least his change of heart has allowed me to accept him as a possibility for Yoo Ah.
Soo Young politely declines Jin Woo's interest but he pulls her into a hug, again trying to change her mind. This of course is the exact moment when Min Seok walks into the picture and his look of utmost despair just ripped out my heart. He slowly walks away, only to burst in on the couple a few moments later dragging Soo Young off to talk. We end episode 11 with nothing resolved and the two men facing off yet again.
Oh the heartbreak and feels that this episode evoked in me. On one hand I knew that this was where we were heading plot wise, but knowing and feeling are two different things. I appreciated how the writers kept the sweet feel of the drama steady by using side characters to keep the humor intact. Grandpa shadow boxing Min Seok was so adorable and helped ease the pain of that scene and also Min Seok's handler trying to cheer him up with porn just cracked me up. The show was able to be sad without sinking into a deep melo pit in which it can't come out. Now I just have to patiently wait for subs so I can watch Seo In Guk call Soo Young Noona. Silly how small things like that can thrill me.
