Shooting Stars Episode 5: Oh Han Byul Reveals Truth About Dating Gong Tae Sung in College
Shooting Stars episode 5 starts with the Starforce Entertainment legal representative, Do Soo Hyeok, asking Oh Han Byul if she is dating Gong Tae Sung. When the PR team leader clarifies that there is no way she is dating the top star, Do Soo Hyeok inquires if she wants him to introduce her to a good lawyer and then points at himself.
The shocked and threatened Gong Tae Sung suddenly approaches them and puts his hands over her shoulders, telling her there is something they need to discuss. He also introduces himself to Do Soo Hyeok, seemingly reminding him that Oh Han Byul belongs to him.
As their firmly shake their hands due to the impending war between them, they try to ask each other personal questions. Do Soo Hyeok asks whether Gong Tae Sung is his senior since the top star says he was part of Judicial Institute’s class 44th, while the legal advisor was at 46th.
However, it turns out that he is only referring to the drama role he had.
After the encounter, Gong Tae Sung gets curious about why Oh Han Byul reacted that way when Do Soo Hyeok asked her if she was dating him. He then hilariously asks Byeon Jung Yeol what he would feel if someone asks him if he is dating the top star.
Oh Han Byul reminds the PR staff members about the assigned duties to them. She informs them that she needs to work on The World of Stars set, just like what Gong Tae Sung told her when he interrupted her conversation with Do Soo Hyeok.
Because of that, the three employees begin to speculate that something is truly going on between them. They “confirm” it by also asking Byeon Jung Yeol, as he tells them that he, as well, think that Gong Tae Sung and Oh Han Byul might be secretly dating.
When Oh Han Byul arrives at the series’ set, Kang Yoo Sung and Kim Dae Soo asks for her advice due to two troublemaker cast members. While trying to help the two, Gong Tae Sung arrives and passes by the tent where the PR team leader is staying.
Despite doing his best during the shoots, Gong Tae Sung always sees Oh Han Byul doing something else and not focusing on him. With that, he pledges to seek revenge on her again.
Do Soo Hyeok suddenly remembers his conversation with Oh Han Byul and gets curious about what Gong Tae Sung whispered to her before leaving them. Oh Han Byeol suddenly calls him to ask for work-related help.
Usually, the legal advisor does not work beyond his working hours. But his secretary notices it and how it started because of Oh Han Byul.
Meanwhile, Gong Tae Sung gives Byeon Jung Yeol his first mission. He also gets bombarded with new rumors, including smelly hair and that he always visits a nightclub.
Worried Oh Han Byul works with the Starforce Entertainment team to ensure that their artists will be cleared from the rumors. Even at home, the PR team leader checks whether the top star becomes a subject of rumors online.
Byeon Jung Yeol seemingly starts the mission and asks for Kwon Han Sol’s help. Toward the end of the episode, it reveals that the mission is actually about the company employees’ thoughts about his rival, Do Soo Hyeok. While discussing his findings, someone suddenly rings the unit’s doorbell, and it turns out that the legal advisor moves into the room next to Gong Tae Sung.
Shooting Stars episode 5 also explores Oh Han Byul’s journey as she becomes a guest speaker at her alma mater. While answering a student’s message about getting misunderstood and hurt over something that is not true.
She remembers the time when the talks about her dating Gong Tae Sung emerged. At that time, students thought she was not pretty enough for him and that Oh Han Byul only kept hitting on the now-actor.
Following her talk, she visits the university’s office, where she sees a copy of the magazine with a photo of her and Gong Tae Sung on the cover. Viewers are surely surprised as Oh Han Byul reveals she and Gong Tae Sung never dated.
The school admin also looks visibly shocked by the revelation since Gong Tae Sung reportedly asked her to burn the materials since Oh Han Byul had been suffering because of the rumors. In return, he promised to become the subject of the school’s promotional posters even after his graduation.
At the end of the episode, Gong Tae Sung receives a written interview questionnaire. As he is working on a drama, he asks Oh Han Byul to answer it since she is the one who knows him the most. The PR team leader indeed does a great job that she answered everything but three.
She comes to the actor’s waiting room to personally ask him the questions she does not know what to answer.
The last out of three questions is “What was the most dramatic moment in your life?” The actor keeps on falling asleep due to exhaustion, so Oh Han Byul herself gave him multiple choices. But instead of choosing one, Gong Tae Sung says it is weird that Oh Han Byul has been part of the choices she mentioned and tells her not to leave him and go anywhere, making the PR team leader’s heart flutter.
