Start-Up Episode 12 Recap

After their big win at Demo Day, Dal-Mi and Do-San are ecstatic about signing a contract with Alex and 2STO, thinking that they will now get to continue developing their visual aid app NoonGil in Silicon Valley. Their happiness is short-lived as Ji-Pyeong reveals the horrible truth about the kind of contract they’ve both signed. Apparently, Samsan Tech is getting “acq-hired”, which means that their company is being acquired so that the talent can be hired, as opposed to getting investment as Dal-Mi and Do-San had imagined. Alex means to disband the group and announces that he is only taking Do-San, Chul-San, and Yong-San to America, dismissing Dal-Mi and Sa-Ha.

Do-San and Ji-Pyeong get in a physical altercation following this revelation but nothing comes of it. Dal-Mi wants Do-San to not let go of this opportunity but he is determined to find a way to break the fraudulent contract or hit Alex with a lawsuit. Finally, in order to get him to go to the States, Dal-Mi breaks up with Do-San, telling him that she cannot love him because he is not the boy from the letters. Heartbroken, Do-San agrees to go to Silicon Valley but there is a sliver of hope as it seems that Alex will allow him to keep working on NoonGil. The San boys leave Korea and Dal-Mi goes for an interview at her sister In-Jae’s company. Can the siblings’ fractured relationship heal after years of bitterness and rivalry? It certainly looks like In-Jae is ready to offer an olive branch.
