It looks like things will be getting more serious for Joonhee and Kyungil in episode 9 of Uncle! In the previous episode, we witnessed Joonhee putting an end to Kyungil’s one-sided crush and finally confessing that she likes him too.

Now that she may be faced with bigger problems regarding the same, will she be able to share them with Kyungil? All the fans are curious to see how the situation unfolds.
