This episode I kind of liked. I was smiling more because of the way all individual chapters closed. Because they were actually well done. I preferred this to yesterdays episode and overall the episode was mainly a way of preparing you for the ‘1 year later’ episode which probably would be episode 16.
Starting with Shin Hyuk; he looks dapper 😍. Seong Joon asks him the question I was wondering. Why has he been in hiding. He just gives him a recording he actually made to give to Hye Jin but Seong Joon still refuses to put the article in. Furthermore when Shin Hyuk told him to save the magazine this way he seemed annoyed and not willing. You find out later that it was mainly because of his proposal. If you remember he said he wanted to do it once he achieved 1st place but, this way would mean it wasn’t through his own credit so it doesn’t feel like he met the requirements of the proposal.
Thank Buddha Shin Hyuk gets the article published himself. This comes as a double shock for the Team especially since they only just found out about sunbae. It was sad to see the effect of him leaving has on all of them. However he leaves a cute goodbye video message to all of them apart from Hye Jin.
Instead Seong Joon gives the recording to her where he explains that he was adopted and wrote fiction from young. He became TEN because he hated that his work was becoming influenced and moulded to please others. This one point I can relate TOO well with. I try and avoid reading others blogs when I’m feeling unmotivated or stagnant. Mainly because I end up thinking mine is crap and my writing begins to mould into their style instead. So Shin Hyuk has a very good point here. #DoYouBoo On the other hand I actually thought there was gonna be some major shock-factor story behind him being TEN but I guess i had my expectations way too high.
Of course Shin Hyuk wasn’t going to leave Hye Jin hanging without a goodbye. Their goodbye was like the ending of a book as they end up walking away from each other smiling. As if they cut off all contact with each other. That made me a little sad inside… I’m gonna miss their combo of crazy. Am I the only one who was wondering what he whispered in her ear? Like I wanna know the joke too bruh! Maybe we will get a flashback in the next episode.
Ha Ri also opens her next chapter in life when she decides to graduate in hotel management. Turns out her aptitude tests all claim she’s best suited to be a hotelier. Lol. Good for you Ha Ri! I really miss her presence more in dramas so I was happy to see her more in this episode. Their friendship scene when Hye Jin packs up to leave is too funny… and something me and my best friend would probably do. #HandDemTissues4TheEndOfThisFriendship
Hye Jin’s departure back to the Management Team also depresses the Team. Seems so does Hye Jin too. Awh seems that despite it all they seemed to have connected too closely with her that they beg her to stay. But she gets a offer from a children’s book author she interviewed to join her collaborative project. Well well who know opportunity would be waiting around the corner?
Despite Seong Joon asking her to come the US with her he accepts her choice to go for the opportunity after seeing her excitement when speaking about it. The way she ends up proposing to him first in an attempt to soften the blow of her decision. LOL Seong Joon looked embarrassed! Awh but at least he was sweet in accepting hers as well as understanding her decision. Plus he does end up proposing using the infamous puzzle which was sweet since she would not stop bothering him about how he was going to propose to her. I mean it was cute but I still don’t feel anything for the couple… #SorryNotSorry
Don’t worry Seong Joon you got your freaky deaky time with her in the end didn’t you? #IWasCrackingUp #BangBangBang #OkINeed2Stop
The episode closes with everyone separating and going their own ways pretty much. Everyone prepares themselves for their next chapters in life as well as people returning to their slightly altered, original positions. I liked the episode in terms of where everyone ended up but I still stand by my word when I say this drama could have been WAAAYYYY shorter. It was just longed out for no reason. Oh also we finally hear Hye Jin and Seong Joon say “I love you” for the first time to each other. Wheyyyyy
Didn’t expect to get a favourite quote from an unexpected character but the lady had a point. Sometimes we forget that it’s nice to have everything return back to normal after a rollercoaster ride life throws at us. However overtime after that bumpy ride people change, feelings change and ambitions change. One minute you would want to be chasing this but BAM life throws a random experience at you which you grow from. Some people are way too afraid to leave their original positions but honestly if you don’t try you will never know then unknown.
This was so true! It’s something I’ve also recently come across myself. People look beautiful when they’re doing something that truly makes them happy. I have a cousin who has started taking up his dream of becoming a MUA seriously and it’s always so inspiring to see him perk up and buzz with enthusiasm whenever he rambles on about this product and that product. Albeit I’m never listening to what he’s actually saying because I always get lost but it’s nice to see.
