Business Proposal Episode 8 Recap: Final Thoughts

The makers played well by keeping the best thing in the end yet filling the entire episode with heartwarming moments. Watching Tae-moo doing his best to make Ha-ri realise her feelings was amazing. I also enjoyed the cute arguments between Young-seo and Sung-hoon yet they’re so hot with their romance. After Tae-moo, it was good to see Ha-ri stand up against Min-woo. Oh, and the climax? One can keep watching it again and again!

Business Proposal Episode 8 Recap: Tae-moo and Ha-ri spend quality time together.


  1. We’re not supposed to say this out loud, but anyone dumb enough to have a pit bull as a “pet” is screaming to the world that they are not living in reality and make crappy, sometimes dangerous, decisions. Smarmy Smarma, assuming she’s not just a lying criminal herself, is so much a narcissist herself that she was willing to fall for any scenario where she got to be a “compassionate queen.” Real compassion includes humility, sometimes anonymity. (And, it doesn’t include madness like bringing an unpredictable animal into the workplace.)
