I Have Second Lead Syndrome – Our Beloved Summer Ep 13 & 14 Review 

After watching Eun Ho and Sol Yi have such natural interactions, I now have a case of second lead syndrome. This is a review for Episode 13 & 14 of Our Beloved Summer on Netflix.

Another slow episode that gave us some hints at a romantic development between Sol Yi and Eun Ho. 

To be quite honest, I enjoyed watching them have a conversation over shucking clams more than the ‘romcom’ scenes between Yeun Su and Choi Woong.
