I know I said I was going to do 2 episodes in one due to the effort BUT I seriously can’t be bothered waiting. I usually don’t watch the next episode till I’ve written my post for the previous one. So my desperation to watch the next one could not wait at all lol.
FINALLY I can officially say that Hye Jin and Seong Joon admitted to their feelings. It took 10 flipping episodes but it got there. Although it doesn’t even feel that long since I started watching this. The way he came to the realisation that he definitely has feelings for her was so cute. He didn’t realise that it was raining because he was so focused on seeing that she was safe. It was hilarious how she tries to kill the awkward silence in the car by playing the radio. Turns out the radio decided to play a load of songs on hugging freaking both of them out. (op of rain)
For most of the episode they were like a renactment of Sylvester and Tweety. Everytime he tried to bring up the incident she legs it and her excuse is always Shin Hyuk. I felt sort of bad since she doesn’t realise that it looks like she’s using him to avoid Seong Joon as sees him only as a good friend. We always have that 999 friend who swoops in to save you from a awkward situation.
Bless Seong Joon. He clearly is just trying to get closer to her each time, despite looking like a emotionless robot in the process, but she runs from him.
Again FINALLY Hye Jin finds out about Ha Ri. I remember from the last episode saying that this was inevitable now. If he hadn’t missed that date with Ha Ri things may have been smoothed out beforehand. Now however, everyone finds out without any direct confession. You know what, Hye Jin and Ha Ri’s friendship is just amazing. I don’t even know if you can call it friendship! I had the same reaction as Hyuk. I was awestruck with her response when he asked her if she’s going to bitch fight or tell Seong Joon first. Instead Hye Jin tells us that shes gonna give her time like she asked before- I can’t believe she remembered! Now that is thicker than blood. Their trust in each other is seriously amazing. When she comes home to see Ha Ri fixing her shoe and tell her that she going to buy her new shoes she doesn’t protest. She looks like she feels sorry for her more than anything else.
The situation reverses however when Ha Ri finds out from Shin Hyuk that Hye Jin knows. My god Ha Ri gives me too many feels… probably because I relate to her really well. Upon seeing Hye Jin’s conflicted face she reinstates her promise to return to her place. It sort of sounded like she was reassuring Hye Jin that Seong Joon will always be hers.
I think I can officially say Ha Ri and Seong Joon will be nothing from this episode onwards. Partly because once coming to the realisation of his feelings he subliminally tells her that he couldn’t keep his promise and will be saying sorry to her more often than not. Furthermore he finds out her real name is Ha Ri! I’m sorry I couldn’t hold it in any longer 🙈 I’m curious to find out how he found out!
Hye Jin of course couldn’t run forever and ends up having to face him when he forces her to have a tea date. Forget everything else about the date… the most important thing was his confession. Ah Seong Joon~ah! Let them feelings out. LET IT GOOOO (sorry I deeply apologise for that). His confession was so sweet because he says how she reminds him so much of someone he used to know. Thus meaning he technically has fallen for his first love in every way. The irony of Hye Jin’s jumper saying ‘courage’- I see what you tried to do there.
By this time she still is confused with Ha Ri and doesn’t know how to respond and legs it. However she ends up slyly confessing her acceptance after hearing Ha Ri’s reassurance. At that infamous painting’s exhibit she basically tells him lets go on a date. Yeah she didn’t say it explicity but it was obvious.
Now Shin Hyuk was the main highlight of the episode. At least thats how I felt like it was. He’s like a turtle. Bare with me. What I mean is that he has such a hard, crazy patterened shell but inside he’s soft and gentle. I feel so bad for him for having to hold his feelings in all this time. It turns out the reason he didn’t get to her before Seong Joon was because he crashed. He just laughed when he saw them hugging. I know that laugh, it means “I’m such a dumbass for thinking anything was possible”. I feel you dude.
Dude even leaves the hospital when he hears Hye Jin is lost and senses her sadness once finding out about Ha Ri. She leans on him however as a friend and nothing more. I mean they have a similar friendship to his with Ha Ri. The difference being is that Ha Ri and him connect on a much more depper level given the similarity of their situations. #HiddenFeelings #NeverAGoodCombo He also pretty much gets friend zoned as well as rejected when she admits that she’s going to pursue a relationship with Seong Joon.
Shin Hyuk is so confused it hurts. He tries to keep it friendly and back to teasing her constantly. Especially when she finds out about him going to hospital he reverts back to carefree, joking Shin Hyuk. It was nice to see him happy but no once could miss that moment where he tells her to stop messing him up. Hye Jin of course sees past it because he’s always joking around so she doesn’t take his statement seriously.
HOWEVER things change and get dramatic. After hearing that she was at Seong Joon’s he dashes over in an attempt to interrupt. Instead he gets verbally backhanded by Seong Joon who sees past all his jokes and this time calls him the coward. Not gonna lie his way of doing it stung a lot more than when Shin Hyuk helped him. His words are so true though.
Hye Jin eventually connects the dots that he crashed because of her. She attempts to see if he’s ok but instead is met with his emotional outburst. Shin Hyuk’s words literally explains his feelings perfectly. He tried friends, but it just wasn’t cutting it. Well damn…
