Episode 5 of ‘Uncle’ is going to show us the sweet transition of Joon Hyuk and Hwa Eum’s relationship! Though the two are not on bad terms at the moment, there is a lack of true emotional proximity. However, since Joon Hyuk has found out that Hwa Eum is actually his long-term fan, this is bound to change. All the fans of the show are eagerly waiting to see what the next episodes have in store for them. The previous episode did a great job of building character relationships.

For the mere act of providing CCTV access to Joon Hyuk, the Momvely’s create false rumours about the place that potentially ends business for them. This is just a taste of what they are going to do in the upcoming episodes.
