With only four episodes left, tvN’s weekend drama “The Midnight Romance in Hagwon” shared three key points to look forward to!

Helmed by director Ahn Pan Seok of the hit drama “Something in the Rain,” “The Midnight Romance in Hagwon” is set against the backdrop of Daechi, a neighborhood renowned as the epicenter of private education in Korea. The plot centers around an instructor who tirelessly assists a student named Lee Joon Ho (Wi Ha Joon) in gaining admission to a prestigious university. In a twist of fate, Lee Joon Ho later returns to the academy as a rookie instructor after resigning from a large company because he remains fixated on his first love, his academy teacher Seo Hye Jin (Jung Ryeo Won), even after becoming an adult.

Here are a few points to look out for in the final episodes ahead:

1. Romantic challenges for Seo Hye Jin and Lee Joon Ho

Since becoming a couple, Hye Jin and Joon Ho’s secret romance has been filled with tender moments, from a cozy encounter in an elevator to sweet kisses in classrooms. However, navigating a neighborhood like Daechi, where gossip spreads like wildfire, presents challenges for their love story. As the next episodes are expected to introduce hurdles to their romance, viewers are curious about the hardships they will face and whether they can emerge stronger, just as they have solidified their love through difficulties in the past.

2. Seo Hye Jin’s battle against Woo Seung Hee and Choi Hyung Sun

In recent episodes, Hye Jin leveraged her own 10-year teaching materials against Vice Principal Woo Seung Hee (Kim Jung Young) to successfully launch a class for Joon Ho. However, Woo Seung Hee and Choi Hyung Sun (Seo Jeong Yeon) are not likely to back down easily. The teaser for the upcoming episode hints at escalating tensions, with Woo Seung Hee determined to disrupt Daechi Chase. As the storm brews, viewers eagerly anticipate how Hye Jin will navigate the challenges posed by Seung Hee and Hyung Sun’s strategic maneuvers.

3. Seo Hye Jin’s growth as a teacher

As Joon Ho started his career as a teacher, clashes arose with Hye Jin over their differing teaching philosophies—Joon Ho’s idealistic view versus Hye Jin’s pragmatic approach to college admissions. As the series progresses, however, Seo Hye Jin reflects on her teaching style, reevaluating her role and responsibilities as an educator. In the episodes ahead, viewers are poised to witness whether Hye Jin and Joon Ho can attain meaningful achievements while staying true to their educational ideals.

The next episode of “The Midnight Romance in Hagwon” airs on June 22 at 9:20 p.m. KST.
