Sharleen and Juan Pablo go on their date, and they head around Seoul eating foreign foods and hitting up a tea house. Sharleen explains that she got her bachelors and masters degree in music, and Juan Pablo states that if “there was a degree in soccer, I would have gotten that.” Which, come on, that's funny.
He keeps pressuring her to hear her sing (she’s an opera singer), and later that night, she sings about one second worth of a tune and he’s blown away. They make out a bit because that’s her go-to move even though they are the WEIRDEST kisses. Seriously, there’s just a lot of tongue and mouth action that shouldn’t happen. She even starts the kiss by OPENING HIS MOUTH WITH HER FINGERS. I'M NO EXPERT, BUT THAT’S DEFINITELY NOT RIGHT.
“After having done sufficient research, Juan Pablo is a good kisser.” MK I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL TAKE YOUR WORD FOR IT, BUT SURE.
At dinner, they talk about different cultures, where they actually do seem to connect (since she moved to Germany from the U.S., and he moved to the U.S. from Venezuela). He puts the pressure on her by asking how many kids she wants, and that’s when things get dicey. She explains that she already dated someone before who had a child and that she wasn’t ready to be a mother. RED FLAG JUAN PABLO RED FLAG.
“It’s not easy to be with someone who has a kid,” Juan Pablo says. As she takes a sip of her tea, Sharleen replies, “It’s one of the most important things, for sure.” NO SHARLEEN IT’S THE ONE MOST IMPORTANT THING. HAS SHE FORGOTTEN WHO SHE’S TALKING TO?
Sharleen decides to tell the truth and say she hasn’t even given kids a thought. And Juan Pablo, the man who has repeatedly said he wants more kids right away, GIVES HER THE ROSE.
As he would say: AYYY AYYY AYY AYY.
