“Link: Eat Love Kill” Episodes 5 and 6: Recap and Ending: Is Lee Jin-geun alive?

In the previous episode from “Link: Eat Love Kill,” Gye Hoon comes up with a theory that Jin Geun is still alive and managed to escape from the refrigerator. If this comes true, Da Hyun doesn’t have to worry about being a murderer, but it means Jin Geun will come back for her.


Why does Da-hyun have nightmares?

Gye Hoon thinks the stalker didn’t die and ran away from the refrigerator. Da Hyun is scared because she has nightmares in which the stalker, Jin Geun, comes back to life and tries to kill her. This thought of Jin Geun actually being alive made Da Hyun even more frightened. Da Hyun’s mother tells him to quit work at Gye Hoon’s restaurant, but she tells them that they must be on Gye Hoon’s good side because she told him the truth about the murder.

Da Hyun started to develop feelings for Gye Hoon, but she can’t make it obvious because Gye Hoon told her not to feel that way towards him. Gye Hoon asks her if he did something to offend her, but she denies it. Da Hyun’s mother and grandmother also acted strangely towards him, which makes him wonder what’s wrong with Da Hyun’s family. The neighborhood ladies swooned in front of Gye Hoon, but when he told them their name, the ladies started to walk away from him.

Talks have started in the city about Gye Hoon returning to avenge his sister’s death. The police officer in charge of the Gye Young case is furious that he cannot charge the murderer for lack of evidence. Gye Young was last seen with her piano teacher before she disappeared, but he hasn’t been charged with anything. This piano teacher is now homeless in the city, and he apologizes to Gye Hoon for Gye Young’s death but doesn’t tell him exactly what happened.

Da Hyun’s colleague visits him in town and sees Jin Geun’s sister, who is looking for him everywhere. The colleague tells Da Hyun’s mother that she is Jin Geun’s sister and asks her if she knows her. After thinking for a while, Da Hyun’s mother and grandmother realize who Jin Geun is, and now they have another threat in front of them. Gye Hoon receives a call from his mother saying that she has found Gye Young, and Gye Hoon rushes to her with Da Hyun.

Gye Hoon told Da Hyun not to blame herself for things she didn’t do, because then people would push her to believe that she was responsible for everything. When she sees Gye Hoon’s mother blaming him for his sister’s disappearance, she understands why he told her that. She keeps feeling sad about it and decides to make him a midnight snack. Gye Hoon had comforted her with food when she was sad, and now it’s his turn. When Da Hyun starts crying, tears also stream down Gye Hoon’s face. He says he’s fine, but he doesn’t know if he’s crying because of Da Hyun’s emotion or if he’s really sad.


Has Lee Jin-geun come back from the dead?

To prove that he wasn’t really crying, Gye Hoon told Da Hyun that he could feel his emotions. Whether she’s happy, sad, angry or bored, he feels the same too. Da Hyun just asks him why he feels emotions like that and says he has superpowers. Gye Hoon worried that she might think he was talking nonsense, but got a different reaction from her. Nevertheless, he feels relieved after leaving him behind. To test Gye Hoon’s superpower, Da Hyun asks him to guess what she’s feeling, and he feels his heart racing.

The next day, Gye Hoon acts bluntly and rudely with Da Hyun. He only answers her questions with yes or no. He acted the same way Da Hyun acted when she realized her feelings for Gye Hoon. She confronts him and he tells her that he is here to do business and not to make friends, so they have to keep their distance from each other. Da Hyun disagrees with him. Everyone has their own issues, but there’s nothing wrong with being friends.

As the moment ticks, she starts talking about Jin Geun and his murder without realizing that other employees have arrived. They listen to them in secret but get caught when one of them makes noise. Eun Jung watches Da Hyun and follows her at night when Da Hyun comes home from the library alone.

Da Hyun’s mother was suspicious of Eun Jung, so she went to accompany Da Hyun home. She surprises Eun Jung after Da Hyun and argues with her. Eun Jung isn’t afraid of the police and asks Da Hyun’s mother if she has anything to worry about.


‘Link: Eat Love Kill’ Episode 6: Ending

Da Hyun suddenly receives several messages on his social media accounts and checks them to find that they are from Lee Jin Geun. Jin Geun had been treated in the hospital, and in the meantime, he had been sending messages to Da Hyun. Da Hyun hadn’t checked his inbox for a long time, so he had no idea he was alive. In his last post, Jin Geun wrote that he was back and watching her and her family and friends closely.

After reading the message, Da Hyun becomes worried when she cannot find her mother and grandmother at home at night. Gye Hoon senses her fear and helps her find her parents. They find them and Da Hyun tells them about Jin Geun’s message. They reveal to him that Chief Eun Jung is Jin Geun’s sister. Da Hyun is scared, but she finally has a face-to-face conversation with Eun Jung. She tells Jin Geun’s sister that her brother might be alive and she promises to tell him everything once they find him.

A strange man walks into Gye Hoon’s restaurant and refuses to leave. He says he has a special relationship with this hotel and his girlfriend lives nearby. He even asks if he threw it away, seeing the empty place where the fridge was, but leaves after multiple requests from Gye Hoon. However, Gye Hoon gets an ominous feeling from him and suspects that he is Jin Geun.

Gye Hoon calls Da Hyun right away, but already senses fear from her. Did Jin Geun catch Da Hyun? Can Gye Hoon save Da Hyun? Let’s find out in the next episode of “Link: Eat Love Kill”.
