Guyysssss I’ve been so busy squeeingggg!!! so I didn’t have a chance to open the post until now
I love this show!!!! to the point that I’m having a hard time sounding coherent or
even thinking clearly
So, first let’s get the “bad” get out of the way. GEON’S NEW HAIRDO IS HORRID, there! we need to vent about this for sure. I was petrified when I first saw gifs. Except when it is tied up in a knot, which I find adorable, cause it reminds me of Daegil and also, baby Hyukie teehee.
But then when I watched the episode awwwww, seriously,who cares about hair????!!!!?? ADORABLENESS, HOT, KISS!!!! that’s all my brain can process!
This show is allowing me to LOVE AND ROOT for my OTP without making me hate the second leads. Se Ra is human, all the questions she asked Mi Young sounded like, the questions anyone would ask. I would’ve confronted Geon myself, instead of going to Mi Young but still, there was nothing unnatural in her behaviour. On top of that we learn that Se Ra is a girl who deserves compassion. The scar on the shoulder revealed she is Daniel’s sister, therefore she was adopted. And for the looks of it, her adoptive mother has not been good to her. Awwwww damn it!
You know why this is wonderful? Not only because we love our characters human right? not only because I did not want to hate Se Ra and I did not want her to turn into a cookie cutter villain, just to make everything easier for our OTP. It also makes both Geon’s connection to her and Mi Young’s compassion much more understandable. If we feel for Se Ra, we understand both Geon and Mi Young. If Mi Young were to fall into noble idiocy, we would UNDERSTAND her, right? at least I would!
And I wish we didn’t have the rule to not compare with the original because I wish you guys knew, HOW MUCH THIS has improved on the taiwanese version, in my opinion. This conflict is so much more interesting and original to me.
Daniel, suddently, because he is connected to Se Ra (I actually knew this but didn’t think I would ever care) I CARE. Plus, Daniel is a bit obnoxious, but come on he is HOT and adorable and funny too. Yeah yeah I caved! I like him. And I think it’s the actor doing it for me. Any other actor would’ve fell flat and would’ve disappeared next to the AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG Jang Hyuk, in my eyes. But Daniel makes a fun fun fun rival to Geon. It’s like both guys are on a war to out-nice each other in front of Mi Young. How refreshing is that? I just loveeeee that Geon’s version of Daniel, in his imagination, is so HOT lol. He was totally channeling Patrick Swayze right? Our Geon on the other hand is looking like Willy Wonka, oops! but ok, he can’t be surpassed in the adorableness department (although freaking Daniel fights a good fight)
I love that some of these misunderstandings are not even schemed by villains. I bet that Geon requested his lawyer services maybe to benefit Mi Young. I bet his fear of dying soon has a role in this. It’s still unclear and the way the lawyer communicated this to Mi Young only confused her and us, more.
The subs on Viki were not complete, so I’m not sure if Mi Young already found out that Geon was drugged. She was so upset, that this is the impression I got. If this is the case, her guilt is completely understandable.
Anddddd how much did I love their bed scene at the beginning of the episode? OMGGGG, he is hilarious!!! I love him almost as much as my cat, and they make the same gestures, including that punching the headboard while sleeping LOL And that loving expression in Mi Young. She adores him and “Is it ok to desire him?” YESSSSSSSSSSSS kiss him! kiss him for me woman!!!
I loved all their tender moments, the hugs, her hugging him so tighly that she made him stutter 😀 MI YOUNG IS MY HEROINE!
And that final scene. So the kiss, technically, wasn’t out of this world. The camera didn’t show much. But, in context. It was so powerful! First her words that moved me. Her sincerity! She told him!!!!!she told him she is afraid she might not be able to let him go when the time comes! I did not eXpect her to tell him the same thing she had told Daniel shortly after you know? DDee, does that count as her proposing to him? not yet right? but Awww I loved it so much. Jang Nara was again ABSOLUTE PERFECTION in this scene. And his answer, first, the way he looked at her, and then his answer.It is now 100% clear that, his admiration, respect, connection, attraction, desire had turned into love. He still doesn’t the words “I love you” but he SO LOVES HER! AND THE KISS. The desperate kiss that caught her by surprise. Again, the camera didn’t show much but I loved that Mi Young, even though caught by surprise, closed her eyes!!! (thank you Jang Nara! you kiss like a human! love ya!) In kdrama, a female lead who closes her eyes while kissing, is definitely a rare and precious gem lol! But, I expect a more tender and longer kiss when she is not caught by surprise.
OK NOW, LET’S START WITH THE SPAZZZZZZ!!!!! (and the thoughts, for those of you who can still manage to think coherently)
