– My Liberation Notes Episode 5 Recap contains spoilers –
Mr. Gu’s long jump intrigues Chang-hee and makes him excited. He believes that Mr. Gu must have been a national athlete and tries to search for him on the internet. Chang-hee talks to his friends about Gu continuously which irritates them and they have to ask him to stop. Chang-hee tells the reason behind this as he hasn’t felt joy or excitement in a long time but Gu’s stunt made him feel like that.
Gi-jeong cannot stop thinking about Cho Tae-hun since the day she met him at his sister’s restaurant. Tae-hun is Mi-jeong’s colleague and also the younger brother of Gi-jeong’s high school friend. Tae-hun’s older sister is hot-tempered and Gi-jeong is scared of her actions if she finds out that she had hurt his brother and niece. Despite all the problems, she cannot stop thinking about him and feels like she is in love.
The Liberation Club has been summoned by the Joy Support Group and they have asked them to provide a report of their club’s activities. The club doesn’t do anything worth reporting hence they have been told to keep a journal of their activities. Though initially perplexed, the club members like the idea of the journal as all of them have different reasons to keep a journal.
Mi-jeong has been feeling attracted to Mr. Gu but she keeps on telling herself to not beg for love from him. She tries to act normal around him but Mr. Gu’s behaviour has changed. He has been making small talks and ends up asking Mi-jeong if they would be any different if they were together. Mi-jeong replies that people change after they do something they have never done before and asks him if he would worship her. Mr. Gu declares that he has already started when he helped her get her hat in the morning.

Chang-hee understands that they are growing older and no one wants to date for fun. The woman clearly had marriage and kids in mind but Chang-hee doesn’t want to have kids which stops him from pursuing relationships.
Mr. Gu has decided to worship Mi-jeong but he doesn’t get an opportunity to spend time with her. He works all day and when Mi-jeong comes home, she is always surrounded by her family.

Mi-jeong has written in her journal that she has never liked a single person in her life and she wants to try to find such a person this time. In Mr. Gu, Mi-jeong has got a chance to find a person she really likes.
