Today’s episode continues Jin Hee’s penchant for fantasizing, although this one is due to an illness. Also, in true High Kick form, the show parodies the ever-growing trend of reality shows in Korea with a cameo from one of the reality shows’ winners. 🙂
As usual, the High Kick franchise does the parodies of other dramas and variety shows so well. I’m constantly astounded by the diversity of their parodies. The writers can go from using melodrama to comedy and then to reality TV show all in the span of a few episodes. 🙂
As for the meat of today’s episode–Jin Hee’s growing affection for Kye Sang–I appreciated how her inner desires are manifesting themselves in her dream. At least in the safety of her dream/unconsciousness, she can present Kye Sang with her diligently knitted mittens and have him appreciate them appropriately. In the safety of her dream, she is able to demonstrate her growing affection for him with an “I Love You” sign. And in the safety of her dream, she feels free to imagine his positive response to her confession of love.
*Sigh* Such a short episode, but the writers are able to do so much in reflecting the complexities of the human state. In this episode, Jin Hee aptly demonstrates how so many people long to verbalize their hidden feelings but are unable to do so, and only in the safety of their dreams can they even attempt to “rationally” and “courageously” utter those vulnerable words. Show, I hope you keep getting better and better. 🙂
