Let’s hop into episodes 9-10 because there is exciting new developments! Sex on the beach is apparently not just a drink… and waking up without pants and people walking towards you is epically hilarious. Yes, folks, not only did Hye Soo manage to take the leap and Jae Yeol slept outside. Granted he had a panic attack when he realized that he had done so, but I think it was worth it under the circumstances.
The mysteries of Kang Woo deepen as Hye Soo is supposed to meet him at the airport and then it ends up not happening. Is it just unfortunate timing or is he really imaginary? It’s killing me honestly, although I’m 99% sure he’s all in Jae Yeol’s head.
I’m proud of Soo Kyung. He is finally starting to acknowledge that So Nyeo is no good, especially for him, and is starting the process of letting her go. I am sorry that it took her taking advantage of him and seeing her with other boys to get to this step, but sometimes you really do have to break the camel’s back before it will move. I also feel bad for her father in this situation. As far as everything we have been shown of him, he seems to be doing the best he can with the circumstances and when Soo Kyung tries to help, So Nyeo gets angry. There is a whole lot of ungrateful in that girl’s heart and she needs to realize that she won’t get what she wants forever.
The truth of the murder surrounding Jae Bum and Jae Yeol was finally solved. It was indeed Jae Yeol who stabbed the father, although it ended up being an accident in the end. I am puzzled by Jae Bum’s current feelings towards his family though. He told his mother to tell the police that he had stabbed the father to try and protect Jae Yeol. There is no sense in feeling betrayed when you came up with the idea and they other party followed through. Jae Yeol and his mother also continue to support Jae Bum even now, so why? At the same time, even this act of trying to protect his family doesn’t excuse the abuse he laid into his brother before the murder happened. Although he had difficulties expressing himself there is no excuse for the abuse.
This has to be the most perfect screen cap for Hye Soo and Jae Yeol’s relationship. They are now being tested as Jae Yeol prepares to move out. Hye Soo is obviously bothered by it, but Jae Yeol seems to have nothing to say on the matter. It’s clear that he misses her but he seems to be trying to go without her and it really makes no sense.
I love that Hye Soo keeps calling Jin Young out on giving her advice she needs to take herself in regards to Dong Min. It’s refreshing to have that relationship between two females in Dramaland. I love that they aren’t rivals.
I’m actually starting to worry about Jae Yeol a little bit more. I mean, he always seemed a little bit too calm about everything, which I attributed to compensating for his demons, but the conversation between him and Dong Min about knowing what “self-defense” was when his father died proves that although the death ended up being an accident from the guy falling on him, he really did intend to stab him. I don’t think that makes him a bad person because he wanted to protect himself and his mother, but it makes me wonder what else Jae Yeol may be hiding. Part of me is hoping that the knock on the head made him forget his intentions and that his mother convinced him that Jae Bum really did it otherwise I don’t know if I can handle the level of crazy that we may be dealing with.
Just after I think that we witness Jae Yeol on security camera punching air during what he remembers as the fight with Kang Woo’s father. More is revealed that that used to be his home even though the address has since changed. His friend Tae Yong struggles to deal with these findings and calls Jae Yeol to ask him about Kang Woo. Tae Yong tries to call the number Jae Yeol sends him for Kang Woo but it’s a nonexistent number. He also checks the school and there is no student by that name.
During that same call, Hye Soo becomes the recipient of Jae Yeol angry feelings and he glares at her after pushing her off of him. He doesn’t like that she is pushing interaction with him after refusing to return his feelings of love. Jae Yeol doesn’t like feeling that he only does things because he has her permission which is why he is moving out. I appreciated that even with the misunderstands they took the time to talk this issue out. Hye Soo explained that she was just worried about him and wanted to help, but Jae Yeol also had time to say his peace and they came to an understandings and made a plan to deal with the stress… Too bad it is shortly ruined by a fight about marriage in the broadcasting station.
What did you think of these two episodes? Is Hye Soo being too controlling? Is Jae Yeol being too harsh? Will they work things out in the end? Or is he secretly psychotic? Join Leah and I for Part 3 tomorrow!
