Hello Me episode 6 recap
Hello Me episode 6 starts off with Ha-ni really trying to impress Oh Ji-eun and striving to keep her job. It’s a tough battle because she’s never had a full-time job. However, she takes up an important assignment and, with the help of Han Yu-hyeon goes to the Joa Confectionary factory to get a sample made. While there, the two get into a conversation about Scarlett and it suddenly dawns on Yu-hyeon that she’s had the girl when she was quite young. Ha-ni has to go on with the lie and tells him that she was a carefree woman. Meanwhile, the sample is successfully made and the two set off back to headquarters.
However, on the way, they come across a person drowning in a river. In a panic, Ha-ni makes a raft out of the packets of snacks that she was taking and saves him. Although all the people at the scene eat the snacks and there’s only a few packets left, it still works out in Ha-ni’s favour later on. However, when she goes back to her job, Oh Ji-eun is extremely unhappy with how she handled things and asks her to leave.
In the meantime, Ha-ni catches Scarlett in the Joa Confectionary building and is absolutely unhappy with her behaviour. While in the bathroom, Ha-ni finally tells Scarlett, and the audience, what transpired between Ji-eun and Ha-ni all those years ago. The context is quite heartbreaking and it makes you understand why Ji-eun is unhappy with Ha-ni and everything that is happening.
Later on, due to the success of the new snacks, Ha-ni is invited to a party where she goes head to head against Ji-eun. They drink, dance and sing competitively, all the while everyone else treats Ha-ni like a celebrity. After that, Ji-eun asks Ha-ni privately whether she is doing all this for her daughter, and Ha-ni says that even though she has lived her life without a care for so long, she does not want to be an embarrassment to her daughter. It melts Ji-eun’s heart and she is impressed by her resilience.
The last scene is a bit dubious, with Han Yu-hyeon dropping an intoxicated Ha-ni off at her house. While inside, Anthony, too, breaks in and the two look at each other, surprised. It’s still unclear why they react the way that they do when they see each other, but hopefully, that gets sorted out soon.
Hello Me episode 6 is better than the previous one and it has its heart in the right place. Although there are some inconsistencies still, the scene where Ha-ni refuses to accept defeat is pretty sweet and marks a good character arc for the character. On the other hand, it seems like her luck is also turning around, so that’s also a good thing.
Hello Me episode 6 is streaming on Netflix.
