With enough laughable moments, the ninth episode succeeds in keeping you entertained longer than expected. Most of the credit for the same goes to Nam Han-jum and his team. However, Café Minamdang still suffers from a lack of humorous punches.

The fun usually comes around due to situational comedy.

The Brewing Romance

Makers of Café Minamdang have cleverly kept romance at bay till now. There haven’t been any intimate scenes in the series as of yet. Though nothing on that front makes way to the ninth episode, you get to see Nam Han-jum and Han Jae-hui getting closer to each other.

The puzzle around Gopuri and the series of murders gets stark and more enthralling in the ninth episode of Café Minamdang. The show’s creators maintain a tight grip on mysteries to serve you an enthralling outing.

In fact, instead of calling it ‘enthralling,’ I would use the word ‘serious’ to convey the crux of this episode.
