High Kick Through the Roof episode guide (work in progress)

I recently started watching High Kick Through the Roof, and it’s been a great show. Highly recommend it! I noticed that there wasn’t an episode guide floating around online, even though I’m sure people are watching it.  So I’m compiling a really brief summary of each episode as I watch them, in case anyone wants to skip ahead.

Edit: I made it through all 126 episodes. I don’t think the last episode is as sad as they make it out except for Hye Ri crying all the time (such a good actress at that age). Actually, it felt annoying.

    there are a few episodes which i can’t remember. I’ve watched this sitcom 3 times and i even took notes on my most favorite eps but i lost hte paper :(. I need help on finding the following episodes please.

    The episode when Ji Hoon has to play the role of different fields of medical study to treat his family members. (for example i think he had to be an internal doctor to treat a flu, i also remember that he stitched up Bo Suk’s head or something like that.

    Another episode is when Jung Eum is on a date with Ji Hoon and she has to go the the bathroom REAL badly but denies it ( they were in the car going somewhere) then Ji Hoon makes fun of her for it but then later KARMA happened and Ji Hoon has to go really badly also but then he was made fun of by Jung Eum. She locked the doors on him.

    Thanks so much!

    • Hana says:

      Actually forget about the second one…i think i’m confused with Unstoppable High Kick it was with Min Jung and Min Young…lol….but I still wanna know about the one where Ji Hoon has to treat everyone in the family.

    • Dex Jerkon says:

      Excuse me, have you by any means discovered the episode for the bathroom Karma moment? I distinctly remember there’s something like that but as I skimmed through 100 eps I still couldn’t find it.

      • Hana says:

  7. Laura says:

    Wow! Thanks for posting this. I just started watching this a few days ago and I love it! This was very helpful ( I was looking up my favorite episodes). Anyway, I think the vet in ep 28 was Hwang Jung Eum’s boyfriend in real life. They were both on We Got Married together.

  22. Charlotte says:

    I love this show, but I hate the ending. Why do the producers add the tragic ending to this funny show??

  23. Saion says:

    writing to improve my knowledge.

  27. Lee says:

    Could you help me? Could you give me a full episode of Ep. 126 with english subtitles. I can’t find any.

  28. Emmanuel Okoye says:

    I love this drama! But seriously, I hate the ending! why add tragedy to this fun filled and exciting drama? It’s really absurd! I suggest the last episode should be rewritten and re-filmed!
    At least something as those two really didn’t die! Maybe they ran off and returned as couple! anything but not tragedy! What’s with the tragic end?

  29. Stephanie says:
