The Interest of Love Season 1 Episode 12 Recap 

Sang-su and Su-yeong check into a hotel, and Su-yeong ends up sleeping with him. Gyeong-pil meets with Mi-gyeong and grills her about dating Sang-su despite knowing about his relationship with Su-yeong. Mi-gyeong explains to him that she deliberately ignored it to shield their relationship from harm.

After returning to the automobile with Sang-su, Mi-gyeong becomes ill after hearing him say that he has feelings for someone else. She argues that it is impossible for him to have fallen out of love with her if he had never loved her to begin with. Having forgotten his promise to at least give it a shot, she brings it up again.

She sends him off with the request that he start over from the beginning. Additionally, Mr. Jeong inquires as to whether Su-yeong's affection for him stems from a place of love or pity. Instead of responding, she asks him if he only feels love for her. Upon receiving a message from Sang-su, Su-yeong immediately calls him to have a chat, and they end up meeting in the street in front of her house.

Sang-su gives her a worried look but assures her everything is alright. Outside the window, Mr. Jeong spots them as a couple. Su-yeong visits Mr. Yuk in the office to seek his blessing on an important business decision. Mi-gyeong tells her a lie, saying that he spent the night before with Sang-su.

Mi-gyeong makes the observation that banks are conservative places where a scandal can end your career quickly. Seok-Hyeon passed up a promotion opportunity in favor of an affair he later came to deeply regret. Su-yeong is then distracted at work the whole day.

Seok-Hyeon explains to his coworkers that he did something risky to his reputation and career because he did not want to have any regrets or lose his lover. Mi-gyeong tells Sang-su that she has already answered his question about why they broke up. Sang-su implores her to see that their relationship has already ended. He does not care if he ends up like Seok-Hyeon.

A few of Mr. Jeong's pals invite Su-yeong out for a drink. Seon-jae makes her feel uncomfortable by implying that Mr. Jeong likes spending time with her. On their way home, they see the place where they started dating has been closed down, and Mr. Jeong asks her to go on a date with him the next day. Sang-su, who had come there to meet Su-yeong, leaves when he sees the couple entering her house together.

Again, Mi-gyeong presses him to answer whether or not Su-yeong would dump Mr. Jeong for him. She leaves with a warning that she will no longer be good and will instead do anything to get the love she believes she is due. When Mr. Jeong sees that Su-yeong isn't wearing his ring, he proudly shows it to Sang-su.

When Su-yeong needs a day off, he assigns Sang-su to the subbranch. Sang-su follows her to the beach, where she goes to reflect on her issues. He informs Gyeong-pil that he has stopped thinking about the matter. Su-yeong tells him that she built sandcastles as a kid, but that she would always be so worried that someone would destroy them that she would go ahead and do it herself.

She tries to avoid Sang-su the following day at work. Mr. Jeong bursts in, enraged and yells at her in front of the whole staff. He asks her if it is true, and she says he already knows the answer to that. His attempt to be stopped by Sang-su is met with the question, “Did you also sleep with Su-yeong?”, which leaves everyone in disbelief.

The Interest of Love Season 1 Episode 12 Review

The Interest of Love is driving me a little crazy; I know I shouldn't watch it, but its chaos and toxicity compel me to. The show is insane; I can't imagine a reality in which it's acceptable to stay together and date a single person after a breakup. It would be less stressful and dramatic than the main characters' current actions.

To be fair, though, I do understand. Sang-su is in love but has failed to overcome his feelings. For fear of losing Jong-hyeon to homelessness, Su-yeong is unable to let go of him. And that guy has the nerve to have a sus relationship with her aggressive little study partner, despite the fact that she feels obligated to help him.

Finally, I'm at a loss for words when it comes to Mi-gyeong. Homegirl needs a lot of therapy to work through her problems with her father. It's gotten past the point of comedy; seeing her grovel at Sang-su's feet is so heartbreaking that I actually feel bad for her. For some reason, I really feel awful for her.

In addition, a member of Mi-gyeong's family pressured Gyeong-pil into abandoning Mi-gyeong through threats of harm. This episode shows that Su-yeong believed the rumor that she had been sleeping with other men in order to break up with her boyfriend. Please explain why Gyeong-pil is putting on so much heat to keep Sang-su comfortable. What the heck is going on?

I have a love-hate relationship with this drama, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying it. The drama and the sheer stupidity of it all appeal to me. Even though the situation could have been resolved with a simple conversation and a willingness to forgive each other, why bother when you can just burn everything to the ground and stare at each other in agony?

If Su-yeong doesn't end up picking Sang-su, I might explode. I need them to end up together so that the story makes sense, despite all the hurt feelings and betrayals. I don't know, guys; I think I will cease functioning or something if Su-yeong ends up with Jong-hyeon.
