This episode was a major game changer. Everything escalated, good and bad. This episode took all the drama up to this point and turned it all up a notch. And left us screaming and crying in the end. Well, okay, at least it left me screaming and crying at the end, I suppose I can't speak for everyone else.
Dongsaeng's Drama Dozen Divided by Dul of ep 7
1. Dream a Little Dream of Me
But Soo Ha has some moves of his own. These two have their own flirty moments, only theirs are a bit less obvious. I'd like to think of them as more natural and comfortable. From something as simple as sitting around the house having a casual yet close conversation (am I the only one who found all that skin showing as they sat in the kitchen to be a bit steamy? Sure it was just shoulders as they were wearing grubbies, but I think it was meant to illustrate a bit of heat between them. Am I reading too much into wardrobe? Maybe. But I would like to think not) to being all dolled up and talking lawyer stragety. Look how cute they are together! No awkwardness, no nothing other than close, natural, steamy chemistry. Admittedly, I am biased, but still...come on - look at these two and tell me that I'm wrong.
3. A Change in Perspective
4. Let the Games Begin!
5. Let's Date
6. Oh No They Didn't!!!
As much as I would have loved to just end it with the love, the episode continues and takes a turn for the sad. A brokenhearted teen boy isn't the only drama of this drama. I really didn't like this part and really am not wanting to talk about it, so I'll try to keep it brief. Psycho has made his move against Hye Sung's mother. She's making galbi for Hye Sung and him when he begins to tell her a story...with a wrench. Next thing we know, Hye Sung is getting a pretty normal sounding phone call from her mother. Nothing really seems amiss and there's no indication that there is anything wrong, except for the odd request her mother makes of her to not live a life seeking revenge. These are to be a mother's last words to her daughter, for soon after that we are led to believe (though thankfully spared from actually seeing it) that he kills her. I am so distraught and upset and angry because I truly loved this character. I loved her spunk and sass. I loved the dynamic between mother and daughter. I loved how she stood up to the psycho up until the very end and didn't snivel and grovel and cry. She was a strong woman and I just absolutely loved her. The episode ends with Soo Ha answering the phone call. The phone call that we can only assume means one thing.
I have nothing else to say. The end of this episode left me speechless and dead inside. I hate this show. I hate these writers. I hate it all.
Okay, I don't really. I love this show, I love these writers (but not this part). I love (almost) all of it. I just don't want the mom to die. Let's go back to the love angst and forget that there's a psycho killer on the loose, k? Remember the hand kiss? Let's just focus on that. That was lovely. I really liked that part.
I guess I'll have to continue and see what comes next. I'm so scared to watch episode 8. I don't want to see the aftermath. I don't want to see the pain and hurt and feel all the bad feels. But, I have made a committment, so for you, I shall sally forth.
Once I get brave enough to.
