Pre-Recap Thoughts: I don’t know whether to kiss the writers or curse them. This episode centers around two women–Ha Sun and Ji Won–and their respective relationships with the men on the show, which would normally be a good thing IF the writers didn’t back pedal and create some twists in what I had already hoped was a closed chapter. You’ll soon see what I mean.Pictorial Recap:
I love the development of Ha Sun and Ji Seok’s relationship. We get to see Ji Seok come to Ha Sun’s rescue, ultimately getting hurt in the process of protecting the woman he loves. We also get to see Ha Sun finally realize that she’s come to rely on Ji Seok more than she has expected. After rejecting Ji Seok’s help so many times and making him feel as though his attention and help were definitely unwanted at the beginning of the episode, by the end, she comes to the startling epiphany that she’s come to rely upon his help and that she doesn’t find it burdensome after all. In some ways, she finds it a relief and comfort to think that he will always be there to protect her. Her expectant face as she calls out for him is telling enough.
As the episode ends on Ha Sun’s disappointed face, my hope is that the writers won’t back pedal in tomorrow’s episode and have Ha Sun think nothing about her disappointment. That would just kill me. 🙁
What else would kill me? If Ji Seok starts to sort through his feelings for Ha Sun because she was so adamant about not receiving his help and works to distance himself from her…just as she starts to develop feelings for him.
Ugh…that would just slowly kill me with frustration. LOL
Now, onto the storyline that actually had me shaking my head today: the Ji Won and Kye Sang plot.
Ack! Ack!! Ack!!!
I was so pleased that Kye Sang seemed to be seeing Ji Won as a patient and that Ji Won was spending more time with Jong Seok, perhaps developing the beginnings of an age-appropriate attraction. But nope! Ji Won, encouraged by Kye Sang’s foolish/thoughtless invitation to the art show, dresses up as an adult and tries to go on a “date” with him.
Kye Sang, you silly man! How are you so wise in certain areas of life but so absolutely clueless in others?! I don’t know how I’m going to handle watching the show if he ends up breaking both Ji Won AND Jin Hee’s hearts. Thank goodness that Ha Sun totally dislikes him as a potential male interest. Episode 73 had me a bit worried with all the time that Kye Sang was spending teasing Ha Sun.
In any case, I hope the writers don’t make this a case of multiple unrequited love relationships: Ji Won –> Kye Sang, Jin Hee –> Kye Sang, Ji Seok –>Ha Sun, and Jong Seok –>Ji Won. That would just make me…FRUSTRATED…enough to post another image of “Little Miss Frustrated.” LOL
