And it is very evident that Nabi is actively seeking love.
Park Jae Eon on the other hand, is a flirtatious chocolate boy who everyone seems to like. In fact, he is easily the most popular boy in their department. However, even though we are almost halfway through the series, the audience is still in the dark about Jae Eon’s past or background. And it seems as though, with every new episode, the mysterious air around Jae Eon keeps getting heavier as lesser things about him make sense. What is the significance of his neck tattoo? Who is Seol-a? Why does everyone say Jae Eon doesn’t commit to girls? Well, hopefully, we will find the answers to these questions soon.

In the upcoming Nevertheless, Episode 5, we will see the storyline take a completely different turn.

However, we couldn’t have been more wrong. It seems as though, in the Nevertheless, Episode 5, Jae Eon and Nabi are not even on talking terms with each other. On the other hand, we catch a small glimpse of Do Hyeok getting Nabi a lipstick. Now, what on earth could this possibly mean?
Are you confused about who Do Hyeok is? Well, move on to the detailed Nevertheless, Episode 4 recap to find out.

However, there wasn’t much development on this front in the last episode. Read to find out more about Nevertheless, Episode 4 Recap.
Nevertheless, Episode 4: Recap
The 4th episode of Nevertheless, is called ‘I Know It Isn’t Love, Nevertheless’. This episode starts exactly where the previous one ended. We see Nabi in Jae Eon’s embrace after the two shared an intimate moment. Both exclaim that they wish to stay like that all day. However, that’s not possible so Jae Eon gets up to take a shower. Before leaving for college, Jae Eon notices the shirt he lent to Nabi in her apartment. He lets her have it. He also tells Nabi that he wishes to keep seeing her.
In the rest of the episode, Nabi and Jae Eon spend a lot of time with each other. Most nights, Jae Eon is in Nabi’s apartment. Moreover, their relationship is strictly physical. However, the two of them have established happy chemistry between them, which makes you think that they are a couple. In fact, after Nabi has a bad birthday experience at her mother’s place, she spends the rest of the day exploring Seoul with Jae Eon. However, it is not Jae Eon who wishes her last. That is because Jae Eon gets a call from Seol-a and must leave. In fact, it’s Do Hyeok.
While the storyline does make a little bit of Do Hyeok’s character clearer to the audience, it is still a mystery as to who Seol-a possibly is. It does seem that she has some history with Jae Eon. In fact, one would also think that the idea of Nabi and Jae Eon together makes her uncomfortable. But we cannot say anything for sure, at least unless the story progresses further.
Nabi’s Ex Shows Up
Jae Eon gifts a dress to Nabi for her birthday. He also insists that she wear it the next day. Meanwhile, a couple of their friends see Nabi and Jae Eon get close to each other in public. The rumors start spreading fast, and Nabi overhears some boys talking about Jae Eon’s inability to commit. Interestingly, we catch a glimpse of Nabi’s former partner in this episode. He has the audacity to wait for her outside her apartment and plead with her to not be with Jae Eon. Apparently, some of his students notified him of the two of them dating. For the time being, Nabi shoes him away. But, somewhere in her mind, the rumors bother her.
When Nabi goes to Jae Eon to talk to him about this incident, a car stops in front of them, and a man begins hitting Jae Eon. This is where the Nevertheless, Episode 4 ends. We’ll find out more in Nevertheless, Episode 5.
Nabi and Do Hyeok’s Friendship
In Nevertheless, Episode 4, Nabi is reunited with someone who seems to have been a happy part of her past. It turns out that Do Hyeok and Nabi went to school together. In fact, the two have fond memories of lots of childhood experiences spent in places like the beach and Do Hyeok’s grandfather’s restaurant.
It is a chance encounter between Nabi and Do Hyeok on the bus. Both of them are delighted to be greeted by the other. They even exchange numbers. After Jae Eon has to leave Nabi for Seol-a, she visits Do Hyeok’s restaurant near her campus. There, she finds out that Do Hyeok graduated with a degree in culinary arts and is working as a trainee in Seoul. He plans to re-open his grandfather’s restaurant in their native place. Do Hyeok also makes Nabi seaweed soup and some dessert. We don’t really see Do Hyeok for too long in the episode. However, it is not difficult to decipher that regardless of Do Hyeok’s late entry into the main storyline, he is one of the male leads in Nevertheless.
Kyu Hyun and Bitna’s Friendship
In Nevertheless, Episode 4, Kyu Hyun and Bitna’s friendship must stand the test of time. That is because it turns out that after the kiss that the two shared in Episode 3, they got intimate with each other. Moreover, Kyu Hyun and Bitna are not exactly as cool as Nabi and Jae Eon about it. Bitna tells him that it was a drunken mistake. Kyu Hyun gets mad and walks out on her.
Later, when Bitna is having hangover soup in a restaurant, Kyu Hyun comes to her and tells her that he can’t just pretend nothing happened. That is because Kyu Hyun has started liking Bitna. However, Bitna doesn’t reciprocate the same feelings. But, we also see that later when Kyu Hyun is on a date with another girl, Bitna tries to crash it. It is still too early to predict where this relationship goes. But we can almost see the two of them ending up together eventually. They would indeed make a very cute couple.

Jiwan and Sol’s Friendship
It seems as though Jiwan is in no mood to forgive Sol anytime soon. Even after Sol apologizes profusely, Jiwan is adamant about sticking her ground. She is angry and Sol and decides to continue being so. And, one could easily see that Jiwan is not wrong here. After all, she is Sol’s best friend. It was only natural that she expected to be kept in the loop about the big developments in Sol’s life. It is still unclear as to why Sol decided to hide her plans regarding the exchange program in the first place.
One could assume that Sol and Jiwan may have some sort of a romantic relationship developing between the two of them. However, it is still very early to predict anything. We hope to know more in the upcoming episodes of Nevertheless.
