Zombie: So apparently I’m not so very good at guessing what’s going to happen next as I was completely WRONG about David’s true identity…
Tanya: I’m actually starting not to like David so much. He seems overly spiteful, but holy plot twist Batman! I’m starting to have suspicions that maybe Ma Te is the long-lost son of Na Hong Ran. That may be tragic, but also explains why she disappeared and is still keeping him away because she doesn’t want anyone to know.
Zombie: I was actually wondering about that as well, what with the whole identical watches and all, though if that’s the case, she’s one awful mother. Though maybe she has her reasons for being the worlds biggest…
Tanya: Truth. Cheers to Bo Tong for growing up a LOT these past two episodes! I’m actually happy she seems to be coming down from the clouds.
Zombie: And not always obsessing over Ma Te! In fact, her reaction to Ma Te insisting she move in with him shows us just how much she’s matured. *and there was much rejoicing*
Tanya: Yes! Have you noticed that her obsession seems more and more forced as time goes on? In the first few episodes it seemed like natural teenaged craziness, not so much anymore. She has to really think about what her reactions to Ma Te are going to be.
Zombie: I think a lot of this has to do with the fact she gets hurts every time she sees Ma Te with a different woman. There’s only so much hurt a person can take and I’m thinking Bo Tong is starting to reach her limit. Plus, she’s got a super sweet guy right next to her who’s finally confessed his feelings…it would make sense she’d be drawn to the one who isn’t constantly breaking her heart. Just sayin’…
Tanya: I agree. I also hope that David’s hateful attitude towards Ma Te doesn’t end up costing him Bo Tong in the end. Even if she decides she likes David more and gets over Ma Te, I don’t think she’ll forgive him for lying to her (if he chooses to, which so far he has several times) or for hurting Ma Te because of the whole childhood friend factor.
Zombie: I’m more worried the chance that David’s spitefulness could potentially corrupt him. He’s been so sweet up to this point, I’d hate to see him turn evil just because he wants to one-up Ma Te.
Tanya: Same here. However, we are only halfway through and there’s two options: 1) become enemies, or 2) become allies. Let’s vote for 2…
Zombie: That’s what I’m hoping for! *fingers crossed* So how about this new girl Ma Te’s supposed to be learning from, Gwi Ji… Oh my word! I just want to slap her!
Tanya: I guess you can learn clout from spoiled, obnoxious brats like it’s cool? I guess there is that level of haughtiness that Ma Te needs to have, but really? That whole store scene just because she wants to have more views than Myo Mi? Go party it up and get drunk…. be like Paris Hilton. Problem solved.
Zombie: I really don’t think there’s a lesson to be learned from her. Ma Te has proven time and again how spoiled, selfish, and full of himself he is, I don’t think he needs to learn anything more in the spoiled brat department.
Tanya: Well, clout is defined as “the power to influence or control situations,” and she certainly has some of that, but it’s more her parents giving into her than actual power. Maybe the way Ma Te has to deal with her? We did see him put his foot down right away with that business. Hell, he gave back a large amount of money.
Zombie: Well, if anything, it’s further proof he’s maturing just as much as Bo Tong and for that we can all rejoice!
Tanya: Can I have my moment of Hoon-obsession? At his mom’s restaurant cooking with an apron over his Taekwondo uniform…. really? What part of his character is not hilarious and/or adorable?
Zombie: I’m pretty sure the only reason Hoon’s in this drama is to be funny and adorable all. the. time. Hey, works for me! So what did you think of Ma Te’s semi-quasi-sort-of-confession of his feelings for Bo Tong?
Tanya: One word: Pathetic. He’s figured it out by now. He just doesn’t have the balls to admit it to anyone including himself. Balls up Ma Te!
Zombie: You’d think that with all of the conflict between him and David this week, he’d want to confess his feelings and solidify his place as Bo Tong’s main squeeze. Doing so would put David in his place and he loves to put David in his place.
Tanya: Although I wonder if they are actual feelings and not some sort of scramble because he recognizes he’s losing her and her affection slowly. Not just because of David, but overall her obsession level has gone way down.
Zombie: That could be a very real possibility. Ma Te has lived with Bo Tong’s crazy-obsessive feelings for him for so long, he may just be missing the attention now that she’s giving a fair bit of it to David. That green-eyed monster may be feeling more lonely than anything, at this point.
So what do you think of this week’s developments? Is Bo Tong losing interest in Ma Te? Is Ma Te more interested in Bo Tong’s attention than in Bo Tong herself? Is David going to publicly step into his role as the “young master” of MG group or will he keep it a secret? We’d love to hear your thoughts so be sure to share them in the comments below!
