So we have officially gotten half way through the drama. I am still enjoying it but there are just a few things that are nagging at me and I feel like I should get them all off my chest at once. Especially since I try to ignore the things that annoy me in my reviews just focusing on my favorite parts. OK so here goes. WHAT THE HECK IS UP WITH ALL THE WOMEN??? Writers why did we need to give a specific number (just in case you had forgotten the number is 10) to show the progress of Mattai's emotional growth. Instead of a case of the week we get a bimbo of the week instead (ok I know they are not all bimbo's but when you have a character introduced and he connects with her then we never see her again after an episode or two I count them in the bimbo category). And if the plastic wicked witch was the one who gave him the number of women and originally and was letting him know who they were, do we still keep count even though there is no way that these women could have been prepicked to enter his life. And then there is the wicked witch herself who is slowly disappearing from the show all together. It is as if she is one of those characters that you bring out once or twice just to fill in a plot point (although the lack of sense to the plot does makes her character completely pointless). Mattai starts talking about the code word again but REALLY how is that at all relevant. And now there is some kind of connection with the evil queen through a mysterious watch? Are they trying to indicate that Mattai is related to her instead of the dad?
The theme of episode 9 was clearly jealousy!!! FINALLY We have some progress in both our OTP's relationship as well as the secondary relationship between Bo Tong and David. I was starting to fear that we would get nothing and then have them trying to cram the whole "my true love was always Bo Tong" storyline down our throats at the very end.
If you remember we left off in episode 8 with double confessions for Mattai. One from the actress/fake girlfriend Myo Mi and the other from Bo Tong who was interrupted mid confession by David letting her know about Myo Mi. Poor girl is totally devastated about yet another female threat and is moping at work. Mattai walks in and starts asking what she was thinking confessing that way to him, doesn't she know that she is not in the league of the other women after him. Fed up Bo Tong snaps back at him that maybe he should be with those other women who had confessed rather then with her who meant nothing to him. This of course leaves him speechless and confused since he had not realized that he had rushed to her side instead of Myo Mi. Saying that he had just come back to work because of some papers he grabbed the first files he saw and booked it out shaking his head about his weird behavior.
Christmas eve arrives and we see both men....alone and looking oh so sad. Who is Bo Tong going to choose. The oppa that she loves above all others or her new BFF who gets her in a way that not many others can. We await with bated breath and see her finally send a text to Mattai saying that she just did not feel right about not keeping her promise. She arrives just in time for the final song which is dedicated to her, the women he has fallen in love with....................... Poor Bo Tong of course is blindsided (that girl is one clueless puppy when it comes to anyone's feelings other then Mattai's) Telling her that she does not have to like him back, David says that he is just happy to be behind her since she is the only bright party of a life that was not worth living. Bo Tong of course understands where he is coming from since she is in the same situation with Mattai and says she feels very sad that she can not change the way she feels. Both leave the situation feeling a little awkward but still friends. As they arrive home who should they encounter but a very upset Mattai who grabs Bo Tong and demands that she move in with him immediately. When she objects he yells that he does not care where she lives as long as it is not with "that guy"..........AND SCENE.....................
