Another Parting Episode 5
OK I will be totally honest with you all, I have no freaking clue what this next segment means. We hear the haunting tango music and get a montage of her floating through sheer window curtains, bathing in an antique tub, playing with robots, and walking in her old clothes in an empty hallway only a silhouette against the bright lights. Added in the middle was a flashback of her kiss with Hul. Does she remember, is she shooting a MV (because lets admit that Korean MV's can sometimes not make any sense whatsoever.) Is she having a bad acid trip? Who knows. However next we see Ha Na walking down the street looking really fancy and put together, above the news screen flashes that the singer Seo Ha Na was missing and did not turn up for her debut performance. YAY, looks like she did change her destiny and avoided the life of lies that awaited her!
Awwwww I like that in our own way we got a happy ending. Usually I would hate that they did the whole, the guy looks like Hul so they are swappable as the OTP, but for some reason it works in this show. It gives me my happy ending and I leave the drama with a tons of happy warm fuzzies. So what if I totally have to take giant leaps of logic to accept everything. Not to mention some of episode five was seriously too much artsy interpretative film for my liking. In the end I left with a very cute OTP that I enjoyed and also a new song to add to my playlist, and most importantly, a whole lot of pretty Seo In Guk scenes etched into my memory. It was a win win for us all.
My thoughts after I had slept on it:
So I contemplated this drama as I went to bed last night and this is what I decided the final episode means. The duel Ha Na's including the acid trip artistic scene really means that she was having an internal debate over what she was going to do with her life. Was she going to change her direction completely or continue down the path that gave her fame while still probably avoiding certain pitfalls such as scuzzy ex boyfriend. I think she did remember Hul the whole time and when she did not change immediately and continued down the path of fame, old Ha Na (in her head) came at her yelling at her "what are you doing" deja vu Ha Na changed her mind and gave it all up to forge a new path. And when she went on the bridge she came to terms with her old life and her new life and official decided to embrace a different path and "live another day". Later she saw Hul's human vessel at one of her performances (where she kept to her indie music roots) and went and kissed him. I don't think he is Hul but the human who he inhabited but that they will end together giving us that happy ending.
