The Sweet Blood Episode 7 Recap
The episode starts with Song Meu Ru practicing confessing to Yeon Seo as he has gained feelings for her while Chi Woo tries to make Yeon Seo fall for him by making food for her and spending time with Yeon Seo. Well, this is a love triangle, isn’t it? But it could be seen that Yeon Seo is leaning towards Song Meu Ru’s side than Chi Woo’s. It looks like a bummer for Yeon Seo and Chi Woo shippers.
But besides the love triangle, there’s more going on in the episode. Yeon Seo gives Song Meu Ru some iron powder as there was a lot of blood donation going on that day. Yeon Seo even reminded Song Meu Ru to go to the gym as sweating will help with his blood not getting smelled by other vampires.
But as the episode is going to end, something happens that makes fans’ tension rise. When Song Meu Ru’s sports coach tells him to bring more badminton birds from the storeroom, Song Meu Ru reaches out to get the badminton birds from the very top of the shelf, he gets hit by a falling trophy, and his nape starts to bleed. The ending scene leaves fans worried as the vampires can smell his blood and attack him.
