Nice Guy: Episode 18
by | November 9, 2012 | 175 Comments

Hey guys, just stepping in to recap this one episode because someone is busy ogling her Oppa in person (Priorities!), and because you really needn’t ask me twice to spend a day with Joong-ki. I’m easy like that. Let the melo and mayhem begin.

As finale week approaches, it’s fallout time for Maru and his precarious house of cards. Eun-ki begins to enact her revenge, unconcerned by the fact that the person who might suffer the most might be her own damn self. Can you call it karmic retribution if you have to throw yourself under the bus to get there?

 
EPISODE 18 RECAP

We catch up to the aftermath of Eun-ki and Maru’s not-a-wedding. He confronts her: her memory has returned. It rattles her, but she calmly asks how long he’s known and why he didn’t say anything. Listen if we’re gonna play this game, we’ll need a scorecard.

He says that he was going to let her do anything she wanted to him, to get her revenge. Well it sounds all noble, except for the fine print where you deserve what’s coming. She points out that if it were true, he’d have shown up to their wedding.

He argues that he can’t abide by this plan of hers because it ruins her too. He says there are plenty of ways to go after him and Jae-hee, without endangering herself. “If you made up your mind to stab, you should have stabbed Han Jae-hee and me. Why stab yourself too?”

She glares coldly and says that while she was infatuated with him, her father died. She admits she’s gone crazy: “Whether I stab you people or myself, whether I spill your blood or my own, if I can bring you two down, if I can kill you… I’m going to do anything it takes.”

She adds through gritted teeth: “That… is Seo Eun-ki.” Maru’s face falls. She throws him the same line he offered her once—the chance to run away. She says he did clothe and feed her out of pity, so she ought to give him one chance.

He has nothing to say in defense (and she mutters that he wouldn’t be human if he did) and tells him to call Joon-ha to pick her up. Maru watches dejectedly as she goes, asking Joon-ha to take her anywhere but Maru’s house.

He flashes back to their breakfast conversation when the sweet Eun-ki had said she wouldn’t forgive him if he turned out to be a bad guy, and his insistence that she stick to her guns and never let him off the hook. Feels different on the other side, eh?

Joon-ha drops her off at a hotel room and turns to go, but Eun-ki asks him to stay. Dude, is this part of your revenge too? She just says that she’s probably going to cause some kind of accident, and asks him to stay and watch over her.

Meanwhile, Secretary Hyun packs up Eun-ki’s things from Maru’s house. Choco is near tears, but she understands why Eun-ki would feel this way, and hands her a hair-tie, saying that Eun-ki liked it.

Jae-gil asks Maru if he wants a drink, but he asks for food instead, shoveling in his dinner as if it were just an ordinary day, which worries them even more.

Jae-hee comes home late trying to avoid reporters, and someone shows up… it’s Maru. They sit across the table in silence, with Min-young standing stiffly in the wings.

She asks if leaking the scandal was his doing, and he says casually that it was. She wonders what he gains out of it. Maru: “Han Jae-hee. That was my goal from the start.” Whaa? Why are you playing this angle?

Well whatever his reason, we can see that it stirs her. She asks (tellingly) if he doesn’t love Eun-ki. He smirks and calls it a guilty conscience. “Love… love is the thing I gave to you.” (He’s back to calling her noona now.)

He says he only figured out how much it meant to him when he lost it. Gah, he’s good. I mean, he’s evil, but he’s good.

Min-young trembles as he says to absolutely zero effect that Maru can’t be trusted. But we already know where Jae-hee’s inclinations lie. Maru counters that if he really loved Eun-ki, then why would he have risked everything to turn the wedding upside-down?

Maru decides he’s had enough of the peanut gallery and asks how much longer she’s going to keep Min-young around, because he has important, private things to discuss with her.

Out he goes. I’d feel sorry for you if you weren’t murderous and hateful… but you are.

Meanwhile Joon-ha checks on Eun-ki who’s been in the bathroom for an hour and a half, and panics when there’s no response. He gets hotel staff to open the door, and finds her sitting in her wedding dress in the bathtub, staring off into space.

She doesn’t respond until he finally drops the formalities and calls her “Eun-ki-ya.” She says, almost berating herself while saying it, “I didn’t hate him.” She says she tried with all the strength she had, but couldn’t hate Maru.

She knows that he doesn’t love her, that he’s only using her to get to Jae-hee, that he thought her easily manipulated because she had no memory, that he was only acting nice out of guilt… but it’s no use and she can’t hate him.

“That’s why I did it. Because I thought it would all end this way.” Joon-ha sheds a tear as he listens. Eun-ki confesses that she leaked the scandal because it would ensure that someone in the world would stop them.

You mean like a public, nationwide call for don’t-let-me-drunk-dial-my-ex? That’s quite the elaborate insurance policy against your feelings. She asks through her tears, “I did good, right? My father will be a little pleased, right?”

And then the truth: “But what do I do? I miss him. I miss him so much, oppa. What do I do?” She breaks down in tears.

Jae-hee and Maru sit down for a drink, and she warns him to be careful around Min-young—he might kill him. Maru just brushes it off and plays up the seduction, brushing her hair away and wondering if they ought to just use the scandal as their excuse to be together.

He’s clearly getting to her, but it’s the last bit that tips her off that he’s lying. She clenches her hands and says she was almost fooled, but she still knows Kang Maru better than he knows himself, and this is a lie.

She’s no dummy, and figures out right away what he’s up to. He intends to drag her down to protect Eun-ki, even if the cost is selling himself to do it. Maru doesn’t flinch, “So, will you buy me?”

She challenges his bluff—what if she says yes? He’s completely serious as he gives her the terms: she gives everything back, lays everything down, and the two of them go off to someplace where Seo Eun-ki doesn’t exist. Then they have a deal.

The thing is, you can actually feel it—that a part of her really wants to.

The morning brings another loop, as Eun-ki moves back home unannounced. It’s honestly a toss-up how Jae-hee will respond, but she chooses to act the doting stepmother and welcomes her. She says that it was Maru who leaked the story; it’s a surprise to Eun-ki that he took responsibility for her scheme.

The scandal spreads far and wide, even to little Eun-seok’s kindergarten class, where he gets teased and comes home crying that mommy is a bad person. She is, but still that hurts coming from your own child.

All parties are met with scorn at the office, and Min-young preps Jae-hee for the board meeting she’ll have to face concerning the scandal. He asks what she decided with Maru, and she refuses to tell him.

He grabs her by the collar, speaking in banmal, as he looms over her threateningly. He says she’s the one who brought him in, asking him to be her man, to protect her. “Who made you the way you are today?”

He shakes her as he calls her a prostitute’s daughter who could be rotting in jail for murder. “You can never go to Kang Maru. If you want, you can go dead.” Oh shit. It’s not a metaphor, coming from a man who’s killed before.

And then… he PROPOSES? Talk about misreading the mood. He demands that she marry him, and then forces a kiss. *shudder* You know you’re evil when even Han Jae-hee wants to burn her lips off after you’ve kissed them.

Joon-ha finds Maru at work and they sit down for coffee. He wonders why Maru isn’t asking about Eun-ki—if she’s okay, if she’s crying, if she’s already forgotten him and living well.

Maru says he wants to know, but is scared he’ll be hurt if he hears that she’s peachy keen without him. And if it’s the opposite… then he’ll still be hurt. Aw.

He goes back to his office and considers calling Eun-ki, when the phone rings from an unknown number. He answers, but there’s no response on the other end of the line. Suddenly a song comes on in the background—their song—and he knows it’s Eun-ki.

They don’t say a word to each other but have an imaginary conversation on both ends, worrying about the other. Maru thinks to himself, “I miss you.”

And when she finally hangs up, he says it aloud into the phone: “I miss you, Seo Eun-ki.” He says to himself that he’ll wait for her call tomorrow.

Jae-shik stops by to have dinner with Choco and Jae-gil, and leaves behind a scrap of wood he’s been carving into with the inscription: “Maru?” Jae-gil asks what the question mark means, but gets no answer.

Jae-hee drinks alone in her office, and then stumbles into Maru’s office to have a drink with him. She waxes poetic about the irony of people throwing away their youth to gain riches, and then growing old and spending all their riches to regain youth.

And then she picks up her phone and calls her brother and tells him to stop her if she starts acting crazy and saying that she’ll give it all up to run away with one man. It remains to be seen whether it’s a show for Maru or if she really called.

Eun-ki is working from home, doing background checks on Jae-hee’s personal accounts (like the one they tried to put in her name and get her caught for), when Jae-hee comes stumbling home drunk… with Maru helping her in.

Oh noes. Did you not know Eun-ki moved back in? Aaaargh. They stand there frozen, and Maru pulls away from Jae-hee awkwardly.

She drunkenly asks if the three of them should have another round. How like you to relish the pain. Maru does what he can to evade the worst cocktail party known to man, and takes Jae-hee to her room. It doesn’t go over well with Eun-ki.

As he turns to go, Jae-hee murmurs, “I regret it. I regret it. So, so much… I regret it.”

He walks through the empty house, and decides to go back up and knock on Eun-ki’s door. He asks if she’s doing okay, if she’s eaten, if she’s not sick. All she does is give a curt “Yes” to everything, and he turns to go.

She gets up to go after him, but can’t bring herself to open the door. He stands on the other side doing the same, as they take turns reaching for the handle and then pulling back.

And then he calls her, from just on the other side of her door. He asks if she really didn’t have anywhere else to go but here, and why she looks that way—does Jae-hee not feed her?

He sighs that he’ll go now, and says goodnight. She thinks to herself, “I’m happy that I got to see your face today.”

The next morning Maru gets ready for work, only to find Jae-gil lying in the entranceway like he’s on a one-man strike. He says they have to go to the hospital today.

Jae-gil argues that he’s out of excuses now, and that if Maru should die, he’ll spend the rest of his life looking after Choco, and that if Maru should become a vegetable, he’ll spend the rest of his life nursing him and cleaning his bedpan.

Aw. That is the sweetest proposal in the entire run of this show.

Too bad he hasn’t thought the whole leave-over-my-dead-body plan, ’cause Maru just laughs and steps on his ass to get to the door. Ha.

Eun-ki tells Joon-ha that she’s doing her own investigation into her father’s death. She assumes her father didn’t know about Jae-hee and Min-young’s affair, but Joon-ha surprises her with the truth—Dad knew, and he was having Joon-ha prepare a scheme to cut them both loose and leave them with nothing.

She asks angrily why he’s kept this from her, and asks what else he’s hiding. He doesn’t answer.

He broods over it in the park, helpfully reminding us why he’s holding out on her (because I’d forgotten, actually). Min-young is keeping him from talking because he has evidence that Joon-ha’s father was the one who killed Eun-ki’s mother.

He comes to a decision and goes straight to Maru’s office to tell him something, insisting that it has to be now before he changes his mind.

Next thing we know, Maru is walking through the park that night. He finds Jae-hee trembling, and holds her hand.

He silently puts his arm around her and comforts her. She breaks down and sobs into his chest.

And then, in the distance, Eun-ki watches it all. Her cryptic voiceover:

Eun-ki: Memory plays a game that no one can avoid. Memories will be rewritten, will decay. Are my memories whole? Can my memories be trusted? What was it that I saw that day?

 
COMMENTS

This writer has an interesting approach to the cliffhanger, choosing to skip ahead to the dramatic moment while leaving us purposefully in the dark, wondering how we got there and thinking it’ll be one thing when it’s really another. It works better in some cases than in others—at times it’s downright confusing, and at others it’s not really all that interesting or enticing a question.

But this is a pretty good one, in that there is what looks to be a moment of sincerity from Maru, towards Jae-hee. It’s a notable shift, so the question is what’s driving it. My guess would be that Joon-ha has told Maru everything he knows, and he’s confronting her about Min-young and the murder, but we don’t have much to go on other than the scene that preceded it. I’m sure the B-side will turn those expectations upside-down, which is the fun.

Frankly, I’m a little surprised that this is all we got in the episode leading up to finale week. We’ve only got two more episodes to go, but nobody (other than Jae-gil) knows about Maru’s condition, and Eun-ki still doesn’t know how her father died. The pacing of the big secret reveals (which WE have known from the beginning) is the one really conventional thing about this drama that I find staid and uninteresting, because with such unpredictable characters, you could do so much more if you just outed the expected secrets and took the story to new territory. At this point what I want to know isn’t how they’ll react to the big reveals, but what they’ll do afterward that will subvert expectation. We’re just running out of precious story time for them to do anything in the aftermath.

While I do understand what Eun-ki means by leaking the scandal to, in essence, protect herself from her own feelings for Maru, it’s a rather convoluted thing when she’s still calling him and missing him at the end of the day. You sort of want to tell her it’s okay to want what she wants since they’re all headed on the road to hell anyway, but I guess if she were my sister I wouldn’t be advocating a reunion with a known lying sack of bastard.

What has me torn is that we see Maru in such a different light than the other characters do, because despite his opaque nature, we do know that he never acts out of a selfish desire. He does the really twisted thing of making himself the bad guy in order to protect others, but that alone doesn’t buy my sympathy either. No matter the noble motivation, he still does the bad guy things, and if he never explains himself, never clears it up, then at some point I just stop feeling sorry for him and figure he wants to die a martyr.

He’s a fascinating character because he’s SO selfless that he’s willing to go down in flames to protect the one he loves, but that’s just as frustrating as the noble idiot who’s going to throw himself in harm’s way like a big ol’ hero. This guy is just willing to go down as the villain to do the same. Would it kill him to be selfish for a day and just decide he’s allowed to be happy? This show. I mean, it’s riveting, and dark, and really well done. But at the end of every episode I always find myself saying the same refrain: What I wouldn’t give to take you all to a round of therapy.

    most likely scenario for ending will be maru losing his memory and eungi nursing him. he will forgot all the bad things he’s done and pain he’s suffered and begin anew. with an amnesic maru eungi will be able to trust he isnt lying to her or playing her.
    i think the writer has turned away from killing her main characters like she is famous for doing in the past. but at long as they end up together id be satisfied.
    and my take on ending of ep 18- i think maru told jaehee he has hematoma.

    • 51.1 Enz

      Maybe he just pretends to be amnesiac so that eun gi would trust him again?

  2. 52 mskololia

    Does anyone else think attty Park penned the words to the wedding invitation?

    Somehow, it did not seem like EG or MR had anything to do with it.

  3. 53 Nikilann

    I just love your article. Seriously, you have this way, all of you, of putting this into punch sentences that just sound true. I mean really true. Like taking them all to a round of therapy.

    Maroo first, Jae Hee second. Maroo because yeah, he has a little problem with himself. It’s really time for him to say that Jae Hee is a murderer that took his future and never even tried to give it back. It’s time for him to stop loving women that hurts him, whatever the circumstances. Time for him to go back to medecine, when he did something he loved, found his purpose in, and was admired by his peers. Then, he had self-esteem, and it was really great for him, because he – at least – seemed mentally stable and not a complete jerk to everyone to not look like the kind man towards people he loves that he really is…
    Jae Hee… she is really fucked up. But I understand she neads to deny her feelings, and what she wants. In fact, I was even suprised she finally gave in, because it’s kind of courageous, which is not how I portrayed the character.
    Eun-Gi… poor thing. She should go for Joon Ha. At least, it’s not himself which is involved in her mother accident ^^ I wonder who fixed it by the way…
    Aaaaaaaand that cute and kind Min-Young is becoming like old Ma Roo. Jae Hee is really dangerous. It’s fascinating how she makes guy go crazy about herself. She makes them completly dependent of them, I don’t really know how…
    And Joon Ha… also should go the shrink, because he should not be able to decide even before the two concerned that they should marry, especially when it’s about marrying the love of his life with the one that destroyed hers…

    So… many messed up people, in messed up situation, playing messed up games and having messed up realtionships, should I start worrying of enjoying the show so much ?
    I’m so waiting for next week… this end is diving me into perplexity… ^^

    So, here’s my theory on how this ends. I think there’s a strong thematic callback to the Beauty and the Beast fairytale. Not a retelling, mind, but in Maru’s story I see the theme of a prince (a nice guy) becoming a beast and then wanting to become a prince again because he’s realized love.

    But the Beast has to let his beloved Beauty go (proving his love) to take care of her father, even though it’ll end in his own death. Or, Maru putting his own care aside to achieve En-gi’s safe return to her company (and a return to her place as a filial daughter).

    But! In leaving the Beast, Beauty realizes she loves him. She returns to the Beast in the knick of time, declares her love, and the Beast revives and becomes a prince again. So my theory is Eun-gi will go back to Maru and get him into surgery just in time and they’ll have a happily ever after. (Whether or not that means an amnesiac Maru… I have no idea.)

    …or maybe this is wishful thinking. ;)

    On a completely different note, I’m really, really, digging crazy lawyer Ahn and his crazy robot scenes. The way they shot his “proposal” scene, with the lighting and the angle — never has a straight laced dude been so creepy. I love it! (And really, Jae-hee has the worst instincts in finding allies.)

    Thanks for the recap, Girlfriday!

      Yay Beauty and the Beast! Here’s hoping for a happy ending. I feel like sad endings can be copouts when the whole drama has been gunning for it anyway; much more satisfying to see the character go through insane hardships, overcome them, and live happily.

      And yeah- it’s interesting that they’ve sort of made Ahn the “Bigger Bad”. Unfortunately, it’s a little annoying narratively because now Jae-hee has someone other than herself to push her towards evil. But then I guess he keeps her from being cartoonishly evil by showing her waver, and then come down on the bad side time and time again.

      • 54.1.1 Betsy Hp

        “I feel like sad endings can be copouts when the whole drama has been gunning for it anyway…”

        Yes! I totally agree! Sad endings can work, of course, but not if I feel like they’re just being sad to be sad. And I’d really like this story to not go that route because Maru is so expecting it. Let’s surprise him! ;)

        Lawyer Ahn actually works for me. Because Jae-hee set him in motion and made him some promises. It’s the whole “reap what you sow” thing that Jae-hee is so bad at. She sowed some seeds, they grew into evil robot Ahn and she’s got to reap him. Either let him do as he will or stand up to him and face the consequences. It’s what she’s consistently been bad at doing. Heck, her not taking the consequence of her actions is what set this whole drama in motion.

        So his being there is giving her one more chance to choose: act or not. I’m not sure she’ll be entirely redeemed if she does — she’s done a lot of bad things — but the door to the path of redemption is there if she chooses to go through Ahn to get to it.

    Thanks for the recap, girlfriday!

    “Frankly, I’m a little surprised that this is all we got in the episode leading up to finale week”–> me too. I wish they had Eun-gi get her memory back an episode or two earlier so that we can have more time to deal with all the other stuff. I guess I’m a little bit spoiled by Arang and the Magistrate where the reveals are very well spread out and well-paced.

    Anyways, what a heartwrenching episode! I love how we finally get to hear Eun-ki’s thoughts in this episode. Her breakdown in the bathroom was so sad. Loving Maru is not only a struggle of feelings, but also of principles. Because of that guy, she and her dad parted on worse-than-usual terms.

    Maybe it’s because I’m not korean…I’m not sure if I’m just imagining or maybe it’s the way the actors/actresses are delivering the dialogue, but it sounds more poetic than other kdrama dialogue I’ve heard (maybe except for sageuk). There is a lot of repetition of certain sounds and phrases.

    I also love how words used by one character or thoughts expressed by a character would come back with another character. Ahn Min Young’s attitude now reminds me of the convo he had with Maru at the bar talkiing about the jackal and the coyote. At the time, he thought Maru senseless for opting for the jackal to chase a coyote (a stand-in for Jae-hee) down a cliff, but now I think Ahn Min Young has become that jackal would will chase the coyote down the class. And then we also have MR using JH’s words when he was trying to sell himself to JH to get her to leave EG alone.

    And is it just me, or did Jae-hee and Ahn Min Young leave Eun-seok at the wedding? Where did Eun-seok go that night after the scandal broke out?!

    • 55.1 pogo

      Eun-seok probably went home with his nanny, Jae-hee might be a terrible person most of the time but I doubt she’d just leave her kid there alone.

    • 55.2 jubilantia

      The Eun-ki/Maru cycle of mutual wrongs is definitely an interesting one. However, I feel like it’s not as opposite as we think, since his being there just brought the conflict between her and her dad to the surface. It’s clear that she was dissatisfied with her life, even though she was good at her job and awesomely badass to boot.

      I agree that this drama is really well-done dialogue-wise, and it is subtly poetic about imagery and phrasing, but I wouldn’t know about the finer points of Korean grammar that would drive that home.

  6. 56 Zeffir

    Just had a weirs thought that its kind of have a similar vibe as Bad guy drama. So if in Bad Guy they killed the main characters, is it too much too hope that Nice guy then will have an opposite end?

  7. 57 pillowhead

    I don’t know who i’m rooting for. Maru is a complete socialpath, his ex, a bitch and his love, pathetic. Why do i like this story so much. haha

    • 57.1 Awe

      lol

  8. 58 sunshine

    The moment Maru asks Eun Ki if she doesn’t have anywhere else to go kills me. I don’t agree with the characters’ decisions half the time, and it frustrates me to no end. Then a line like that drops, and it brings it home again that Eun Ki literally has no one.

  9. 59 Bunde

    Here is the ending that I want. We care about maru because he is like sangdoo in let’s go to school sangdoo and so Ji sub in misa (sorry I love you). ‘Anti-hero’ who are really nice guys but because of an awful break, they ended up being a sociopath – good looking but sociopath nonetheless. I want them to stop being creepy sociopath and they find redemption. Eun gee’s doctor who used to be maru’s teacher takes maru back after the surgery and maru becomes a doc again. Full circle. Eun gee is happy and is happy with maru, Chico etc. Joo Han is the CEO. Eun gee is majority stake holder. The end.

    No blow up ending like misa or Bali.

    No death of hero or even worse heroine.

    No vague ending like that of city hunter.

  10. 60 Abbie

    I don’t get the ending. It’s riveting, and interesting, but what the heck?

    I cannot believe there is only two episodes left. I cannot wait for it to come. I just hope we don’t get some huge cliffhanger and/or Maru dies. He better buck up and realize he does have things to live for: his sister, his friend, Eun-ki (maybe), and himself. I hate martyrs.

    Thanks for the recap, Girlfriday!

  12. 62 Big Unni

    Thanks for the recap GF! Loved your comments mainly because I was thinking the whole time I read them, “Thats why freaking thought!”
    Seriously after I finish this drama I’m going to need drama thearpy, in the form a of light, air filled, rom com. I want to laugh and not over Min-Young getting owned or Jae Shik failing miserably or people’s half baked plots to end Maru blowing up in their money grubbing kimchi holes. *sigh*
    I have contemplated over this for quite awhile and my conclusion on what I think might happen at the end of Nice Guy….everyone dies or get amensia. I’m mean with all the horrible things that everyone in this sick and insane drama has gone through the best way to end is for every one to forget or….die(another form of forgetting, albeit not as nice as amensia). Sorry to say (and I mean really sorry since I love Maru but he’s messed up from the feet up) but that’s the only responsible ending.

  13. 63 Sajen

    to me right now Eun Gi is like a captain-less ship she has a goal but no one’s steering her so she’s just blindly charging towards it. and that worries me very much

  14. 64 nesiessi

    Nice Guy would have been better titled “All About Jae Hee” Honestly, this chick is blowing me away. She is a good villain BUT the way the actress is portraying her character and the direction she’s getting adds layers and nuance that it would have been easy to hate Jae Hee on an elemental level of “she’s a bitch, golddigger, mean girl”. I’m getting tired of watching this soap, but I’m hanging in there to see Jae Hee. I’m already over the KMR and SEG’s love, heartache, betrayal…yada yada yada…enough already.

  15. 65 Engshi

    WTH Joon-ha get a spine! Seriously, are you asking Maru to clean up your mess??? Though a lot commented that Maru is such a martyr, well at least he’s man enough to be responsible for his action. I’m a bit disappointed because I was expecting something else like… more manifestation of Maru’s hematoma…I mean did the writer purposely leave that out to save him in the end??? what a perfect excuse :( I really hope for a happy resolution next week though I have the feeling that it’s the contrary. Fingers crossed^.~ This is the best drama this year…followed by Arang :D

    @girlfriday : “What I wouldn’t give to take you all to a round of therapy.” hahaha. that was a good one
    like U said i have no idea how they’re going to round everything up in the remaining two episodes since the Big secrets are not even out yet. well, technically maybe half of one is out there, but still. I just hope that revealing everything, concluding and bringing an end to everything and seeing the aftermaths of everything in 2 hours does not mean high casualties.

  19. 69 jandoe

    Girlfriday! You know I’ve always loved your recaps! Especially LOVED that you pitched in for Nice Guy, only little err would be this was one of the weaker episodes (though it had some really awesome, solid beats like that not-a-phone-conversation scene). Great to read your outtakes about the show and the characters.

    I’ve stopped trying to predict this show but it’s seriously making me SO STRESSED at this point. I’m just hoping for a really satisfying ending, sad or not.

    I’m going to say something absurd. While the bathroom crying scene was happening, I gotta admit, I was sympathetic with Eun Gi, but at the same time I was half fascinated with the tears streaking down her face (and the make up that ran along with it).

    I totally burst out into laughter when Joon ha’s tears pooled at the bottom of his chin and the droplet was beige HAHAHA.

    He goes back to his office and considers calling Eun-ki, when the phone rings from an unknown number. He answers, but there’s no response on the other end of the line. Suddenly a song comes on in the background—their song—and he knows it’s Eun-ki.

    They don’t say a word to each other but have an imaginary conversation on both ends, worrying about the other. Maru thinks to himself, “I miss you.”

    } ????
