Hello Me episode 4 recap
A lot’s changing for Bahn Ha-ni and Scarlett in Hello Me episode 4. After the last episode, we see Ha-ni and Scarlett come face-to-face with Ha-yeong. There’s a catfight that results in Scarlett tearing her older sister’s hair out. Oh, and Ha-yeong shockingly concludes that Scarlett is Ha-ni’s daughter. This probably works out perfectly well for the two, though, as they can now continue this ruse without having to constantly come up with ideas on how they are related.
Ha-ni’s confidence soars in Hello Me episode 4 and I liked how much we focused on her life and the lessons that she learns along the way. These are the most interesting parts of the episode and made me anticipate what’s to come. Ha-ni next gets a house for her and Scarlett from the money the latter gets out of Ha-yeong. However, that turns out to be not what she expected because there might just be others living there!
Next, Ha-ni and Scarlett go out to protest infront of Joa Confectionary where the chairman decides to give her a job. They eventually go out to buy some clothes to wear for it where Scarlett discovers the scar on Ha-ni’s leg. Later on, when her mother and grandmother come to visit her, Scarlett is shocked to see her grandmother’s reaction and her diagnosis.
In another plot angle, Yu-hyeon is desperately trying to connect with Ha-ni, but unfortunately, I still don’t feel the chemistry in that angle. Hello Me episode 4 tries to bring in some laughs through him but it mostly doesn’t land. He tries to get a limited-edition coat which results in him butting heads with Anthony, he helps out the people he works with at Joa Confectionary (which was a moment of character development for him) and then buys an apartment close to Ha-ni. His character seems a little lost in Ha-ni’s world, but hopefully, there’s more to expect from him.
Lastly, we focus on Anthony a ton as well in Hello Me episode 4. Unfortunately, it’s not very interesting nor funny and his character is mostly annoying so you won’t feel much of a connection there to watch what shenanigans he gets into. But I am guessing that since the show is giving him so much screen time, his character definitely works into Ha-ni’s plot somehow.
Hello Me episode 4 is more emotional and there are genuine heart-warming moments in the Ha-ni plot. It remains to be seen what they come up with in the upcoming episodes.
Hello Me episode 4 is streaming on Netflix.
