Lucky Romance: Episode 15

With everything that’s been happening to Su-ho both personally and professionally, and the fortuneteller blaming Bo-nui for everything, it’s no wonder Bo-nui’s reaction is to panic. It’s terrible that her first instinct is to blame herself, but years of conditioning can’t be dispelled that easily. Su-ho may have finally come up against a wall he can’t easily break down.

 

 
EPISODE 15 RECAP

When Bo-nui sees Su-ho waiting for her across the street with flowers and a giant smile, she decides to put away her superstitious fears and trust in him. They run to each other, but a car screeches around the corner and bears down on Bo-nui. Su-ho sees it first and shoves Bo-nui to safety, putting himself in the path of the vehicle.

Bo-nui can only see Su-ho’s bloody hand, and she backs away and runs, too scared to look closer. As she flees, she thinks, “It’s because of me. It’s my fault. I shouldn’t have done that… I shouldn’t have loved him. I was wrong to love him.” We see Su-ho lying unconscious in the street, and Bo-nui stops running when she hears an ambulance rushing to the scene.

Su-ho is taken to the hospital, and eventually Bo-nui works up the courage to go check on him. She arrives at his room to find him gone, and she leaves the symbols for “frog” and “snake” on a piece of paper under his pillow.

She leaves just as he’s being wheeled back into the room, only letting herself look at him for a moment. She goes back to her dark apartment and kneels in front of her pictures of Su-ho, tears filling her eyes.

Su-ho wakes the next morning, and before he even opens his eyes he’s calling for Bo-nui. But it’s Amy who answers, and she tells him that he’s bruised all over, but his only serious injury is a broken arm. She avoids his questions about Bo-nui, and only says that she got a call last night and came to be with him.

When Su-ho seems determined to get out of bed and go looking for Bo-nui, Amy finally admits that she was the one who called her. She asks what’s going on between them, but Su-ho looks distraught, as if he already knows what Bo-nui is thinking.

When Amy leaves Su-ho sits up and finds his phone, but Bo-nui’s phone is turned off. He starts to leave his room but his parents arrive, frantic with worry, and Dad is especially attentive which is sweet. Su-ho tells them that he just got hit while crossing the street, deliberately leaving out the part about Bo-nui.

He tells them to go home, that he’s fine alone, and his mother complains that he said the same thing when he went to the States. Now she thinks she shouldn’t have let him go, thinking he would be okay all by himself. She apologizes for that, and for pushing him in math.

Su-ho looks like he’s going to say something important, but instead he just says that he’s not dying. Dad still looks uncomfortable and wants to leave now that they’ve determined that Su-ho is fine, but he does tell his son to be careful from now on.

Touched, Su-ho haltingly says that he shouldn’t sell the fishery. Dad agrees that probably nobody would want it anyway, so Su-ho softly tells him to keep it, since he likes it. It doesn’t seem like much, but it’s a huge step for father and son. Mom follows her husband out, and catches him wiping away tears.

Su-ho keeps trying to call Bo-nui with no luck, so he leaves her a message. It’s a struggle for him to sound cheerful, but he reassures her that he’s not very hurt at all, so she shouldn’t be worried. He tells her to hurry and visit so she can write her symbols on his cast, saying that he misses her, and looking like he’s going to burst into tears.

Bo-nui sees all the calls from Su-ho, and she calls Dal-nim to check in. Unaware of what’s happened, Dal-nim asks how the proposal went, but Bo-nui just asks her for a favor — to clean out her desk and throw away all of her superstitious talismans. Her contract is over, and she’s quitting her job at Zeze. Dal-nim asks again about the proposal, but Bo-nui only repeats that she’s leaving and promises to explain later.

Bo-nui tells the sleeping Bo-ra that it’s happening again, just like last time… she waited just a few minutes too long, and Bo-ra ended up this way. This time too, she wanted just a few more days with Su-ho, and because of her greed he got hurt.

Ryang-ha gets adorably nervous when he sees Dal-nim approaching, then totally dorks up his greeting. Dal-nim is too worried about Bo-nui to notice thank goodness, and she tells him that Bo-nui is planning to leave. She knows that Bo-nui and Su-ho agreed to extend her contract, not to mention the planned proposal the day before, so something is definitely wrong.

She gets all up in Ryang-ha’s face while explaining, which shorts out his brain and he doesn’t hear a word she says, hee. She suddenly notices their proximity and starts to stammer, but Ryang-ha suddenly realizes she mentioned a proposal and squawks that Su-ho would do such a think without talking to him first.

Dal-nim starts to leave, and Ryang-ha pretends to have just gotten a text from Su-ho just to get her back. He claims the text says “don’t go,” then “what are you doing after work,” and turns it into an invitation. So. Cute.

Gary and Amy meet with an interviewer, who asks about his involvement with IF. Gary says that though the release has been delayed, he still believes in the game, and he even mentions how it helped him find his father. He’s full of praise for Zeze Factory, and says that he hopes Su-ho returns soon.

Afterward, Amy is curious why Gary agreed to the interiew, and he says it’s because Bo-nui invented the game for Bo-ra. He knows that her quitting their agency was a trade-off for them dropping the charges against Zeze, but she swears she did it purely out of friendship for Su-ho.

She asks what’s going on with him and Bo-nui, but Bo-nui was happy the last time Gary saw her. Amy tells Gary about Su-ho’s accident, and that Bo-nui called her to visit him, but she looked so upset Amy didn’t ask any questions. She wonders what’s wrong, but Gary says to let them handle their own problems.

Despite his words to Amy, Gary is concerned as well, and he grows even more worried when he sees moving boxes outside Bo-nui’s apartment. He finds her inside and reminds her that she’s stayed here all this time waiting for Bo-ra to wake up, and he tells her that he knows about Su-ho.

Bo-nui says that it’s only right that she leave after causing Su-ho to lose everything. But even though Gary also shares some of her superstitions, he insists she’s not responsible for what happened to Su-ho. Bo-nui says that she saw him get hurt right in front of her eyes, and she doesn’t want to see that again. She’s already done it for Bo-ra, and she can do it again.

Ryang-ha wails over Su-ho’s injuries, and when he collects his feelings he asks what happened. He mentions Bo-nui quitting, which is news to Su-ho, and he jumps out of bed and runs out of the hospital in his pajamas. When he finds his car he’s in so much of a hurry that he nearly hits a pedestrian, and the near-miss shakes him.

As he speeds to her place, Bo-nui and Gary (in Gary’s car) pass him going the opposite direction. He finds her apartment cleared ofher belongings, and it hits him that she’s really gone.

Bo-ra is also gone from her hospital bed, and all her nurse knows is that Bo-nui had her discharged that morning. We see that when Bo-nui had said goodbye to Bo-ra’s nurse, she’d asked her not to tell Su-ho where they’re going, even if he comes back over and over.

Stunned, Su-ho haunts the hospital hallways, remembering his last phone call with Bo-nui when she’d sounded so upset. He seems to realize something and goes to see Bo-nui’s fortuneteller, who doesn’t look surprised to see him.

He asks in a too-calm voice what he said to Bo-nui – he needs to know, so that he can lift her curse. “The knot was tied, here, so I need to untie it here.” The fortuneteller says that he can’t tell such a secret and that he only speaks what he sees. What a person does after hearing his advice is all on them.

Scoffing, Su-ho asks what he sees and hears, then… “Will I die if I’m with her?” The fortuneteller says that he feels badly, and he feels bad for Bo-nui, but he’s never prayed for anything bad to happen to her.

Su-ho doesn’t buy that for one second, and snaps that if he wanted Bo-nui to live, he should have given her ways to live. But instead he told her she was a source of bad luck, and his words have put her life on a dangerous path. He tells the fortuneteller, “She is my everything,” then turns to go. When he gets back to his hospital room, Su-ho finally sees the paper with the protective symbols Bo-nui left under his pillow.

Bo-nui chatters cheerfully at Bo-ra as she settles her into her new hospital room, but Bo-ra can tell something is wrong with her unni. Bo-nui says that she’s thankful and happy to be with Bo-ra again, and assures her that everything is fine.

The Zeze team all wonder why Bo-nui is quitting, especially since Su-ho is unemployed (they don’t know Bo-nui left Su-ho), but Dal-nim keeps quiet as she packs up Bo-nui’s desk. They get a new bet going that Bo-nui and Su-ho are starting a new company together, and finally Dal-nim screams, “Stop!” She fusses at them for all the bets they’ve made on Su-ho and Bo-nui.

She mopes down at the coffee shop, even turning down Ryang-ha’s offer of juice. Ryang-ha complains that Bo-nui has now left Su-ho twice, and Dal-nim asks if Su-ho is having a hard time. Ryang-ha admits that he’s doing well enough, but that worries him more than if he wasn’t.

Dal-nim defends Bo-nui, saying that she must be hurting a lot too, but Ryang-ha argues that she shouldn’t have left him if she cared that much (preach it, friend!). Dal-nim and Ryang-ha agree that the two should just forget everything and be in love, and Ryang-ha seizes the moment, asking Dal-nim if they can be in love, too.

Su-ho calls all the hospitals he can looking for Bo-ra, but gets nowhere. He tries to hide it from Amy but she sees his notes, and he has to admit that Bo-nui left and took Bo-ra with her. Amy pouts that he never looked for her this hard when she disappeared… poor Amy, nobody gets her jokes, heh. She takes part of his list and offers to make some calls.

The first person she calls is Gary, who says he’s too busy to talk. He grows oddly vague when Amy asks if he’s heard from Bo-nui, and he’s busted when he’s not surprised to hear that Bo-nui took Bo-ra out of the hospital.

Sure enough, he’s at Bo-ra’s new hospital, delivering some clothes for the sisters. He worries when he realizes that Bo-nui is running a fever, though she convinces him she just needs to rest. But that night she develops a cough, sleeping on the floor of Bo-ra’s room.

Su-ho texts Gary asking him to call him, because he has a favor to ask.

Ryang-ha brings Su-ho the things he left at Bo-nui’s place, along with the news that the hacker has been caught. He calls the hacker a “sly raccoon,” determined to sue him within an inch of his life, but Su-ho tells him to just settle. He doesn’t have anything to sue for, anyway.

Gary calls Su-ho, who meets with him at his apartment. He tells Su-ho that Bo-nui is alright, though he gripes that Su-ho made her cry and he couldn’t refuse to help her when she was crying. He thinks she’s still crying on the inside, without Su-ho. He tells Su-ho to go see her, and do something about this.

The Zeze team worry about Su-ho, and decide to visit him even though he said not to. But Ryang-ha tells them he’s been discharged, and he seems optimistic as he says that time will heal everything.

He calls Dal-nim out to the hall and asks after Bo-nui, but Dal-nim can’t reach her either. Ryang-ha tells her that Su-ho really wasn’t well enough to leave the hospital, worried that he might do something dumb over Bo-nui. Dal-nim tells him to just take care of Ryang-ha, but he leans close and says that he wants to take care of her. Awww.

Bo-nui sees Su-ho waiting for her outside Bo-ra’s hospital room, but he’s just in her imagination. She sees him several more times, but it’s never really him, and she grows used to seeing his image everywhere. She sits on a bench next to another image and apologizes for not being there for him, and thanks him for letting her see him like this, healthy and whole.

He smiles sweetly and fades away, and Bo-nui sighs and goes back inside. She doesn’t see the real Su-ho, watching her from around the corner.

He finds her later, and she just stares at him while he speaks. He says he’s not here to make her come back to him, or to be clingy. “I’m here to say goodbye. I’ll break up with you.” What, nooo!

He steps closer and asks why she left without talking to him first, calling her mannerless. She’s the one who said the last memory of a person is the most important, so he wants to break up properly.

They walk together slowly, Bo-nui slightly behind Su-ho, and he says they should walk together until the end of the path. They step over a path of stones over a stream, and when Su-ho holds his hand out to help her, Bo-nui takes it. They stop to rest on a bench, and Bo-nui asks Su-ho if he was in a lot of pain.

He says he was, a little, and asks after Bo-ra. He admits that he’s not skipping meals and he’s sleeping well, and he asks if he can keep the flowers she’s been carrying.

Neither of them looks at the other during this entire exchange, and soon they reach the end of the path. Su-ho tells Bo-nui that she said everyone she loves leaves her, but he’s not one of them. “So come find me. Whether it takes one or ten years, it doesn’t matter. Cheer up, and come to me.”

Su-ho grabs Bo-nui and hugs her, whispering one soft goodbye. Without looking at her again, he walks away, and Bo-nui’s tiny goodbye goes unheard.

A year later, Su-ho wakes in Bo-nui and Boss Won’s old office by rolling off the couch where he’s been sleeping. He still has Bo-nui’s lucky cactus on his desk, and though the office is a little run-down, at least Su-ho now has a home and a new business.

He and Ryang-ha meet with some investors, where he explains that he hasn’t been working on games for the last year, but instead created a computer vaccine and distributed it for free. The investors worry that Su-ho’s hiatus will have him behind on the latest gaming technology, but Su-ho confidently tells them to look at his proposal and see for themselves.

After the meeting Ryang-ha wonders how they can work up a proposal this fast when even the Zeze team had trouble, but Su-ho is all What’s wrong with my team? HAHA, his “team” is Chicken Ajusshi and Boss Won, who mostly just eats.

When Su-ho tells everyone that they need a game proposal, Boss Won chirps that Bo-nui is the best at presentations. Mention of her name makes Su-ho grin widely.

Bo-nui visits Bo-ra, who is in a wheelchair, but she’s up and alert and complaining about homework like a normal teenager. She’s still in touch with Gary, and she says that Bo-nui’s smile sometimes makes her sad. Bo-nui says that there’s a shooting star expected in a few days, and tells Bo-ra to think of a wish to make.

Bo-nui sits alone after dark looking at the stars, remembing how Su-ho once turned her rooftop into a starry wonderland and asked her to trust in him. That same night Su-ho stays up late working on the proposal, stopping ocasionally to look at his lucky cactus.

The next day Bo-nui gets all gussied up, and Su-ho paces his office looking nervous. Smiling and anticipatory, they both head out to meet with someone.

Epilogue. Su-ho says his final goodbye, and leaves Bo-nui standing alone. This time we see his face as he walks away from her, tears streaming down his face.

COMMENTS

I had a feeling that Bo-nui was never the “raccoon” that was making Su-ho’s life difficult, and I don’t think that Ryang-ha’s calling the hacker a “sly raccoon” was a mistake. His problems started when his ex-employee messed with his original game, and everything bad that happened to Su-ho professionally could be traced back to the hacker’s actions. I won’t be surprised if finding out that the hacker is the raccoon that Bo-nui’s been thinking was herself, will be the reason Bo-nui will trust herself to accept Su-ho again, though a large part of me hopes it won’t be. I would much prefer she break out of her superstitions herself, without another twisty oops-I-interpreted-wrong explanation from the fortuneteller.

I am officially angry with Bo-nui. I hatehatehate nobly idiocy, especially when the Noble Idiot doesn’t even bother to explain to the person they’re leaving what’s going on. It angers me on multiple levels, not the least of which is that it takes all the agency from the other person to make their own decisions in a relationship, and assumes that only the Noble Idiot knows what’s best. It’s stupid, but even worse, it’s disrespectful. It takes two people to be in a relationship, and while it only takes one to decide to end one, I believe that it’s owed to the other person to at least explain your reasoning and give them a chance to respond.

Those are my feelings about Noble Idiocy in general — specifically to Bo-nui and Su-ho, it’s selfish of her to ignore what he did by risking his own life to save hers. It’s NOT her fault — and even if it were, Su-ho loved her enough to take the risk, and he deserved the right to at least a conversation. It bothers me that Bo-nui kept telling herself to trust him, but when it really came down to it, she went right back to her old, superstitious ways. I understand that she’s got years of conditioning and fear backing up her actions, and I don’t blame her for her reaction to Su-ho’s accident. What I do blame her for is the way she behaved afterward. I know that she told herself that she left for his own good, but there was no reason to do it in such a cruel manner, as he lay in the hospital recovering from injuries he sustained while saving her life.

On the other hand, it’s just another of the many reasons to love Su-ho, to see him let Bo-nui go with dignity (his). As Bo-nui said, he doesn’t know how to give up, so to let her go that way must have been harder for him than if he’d tried to hang onto her. But I understand that for him, at some point he had to stop fighting her dependence on superstition and realize that nothing he ever does will make her change… if she’s going to change, she has to do it on her own. His hanging around her will only make her dig in her heels and won’t do any good, and as much as it looked like it was killing him, breaking things off cleanly was the best thing that Su-ho could do, for both of them.

But he also left that door open for Bo-nui to know that he’s not leaving her, he’s just backing off so that she can come to him when she’s ready. Unlike her, he’s putting his future in her hands and giving her all the decision-making power. He’s telling her that his love won’t change, that he’s here and he believes in her, and that he believes that she’ll come back to him when she’s ready. He’s the opposite of the Noble Idiot — he’s just noble.

Lady literally left the love of her life lying on the street after getting hit by a car. Didn't hold his hand, didn't wait, just left. He was in the street, where other cars drive and are unlikely to see him splayed out on the tarmac.

Su Ho. This is not a woman to wait for. You have no idea when she's going to completely effing lose it and suddenly start following astrology or gluten-free diets or a doomsday cult. Once a woman has left your lifeless body and run in the other direction, CUT HER LOOSE.

I admit I did not watch the rest of the episode, because I was too angry. I skipped to the end to confirm that Bo Nui is too stupid to be alive, and then turned it off. Su Ho deserves better than you, you blasted ninny. Fricking Amy would at least try some basic first aid and offer the comfort of a familiar voice! Take your bales of denim and hideous footwear and GO!

As soon as I saw the first 5 mins of this episode I was like WTF?? She left him there bleeding and ran away, she could have call the ambulance while she was running!!!

I was literally screaming at my laptop and I'm pretty sure my sister must have thought I was crazy. It's one thing to break up with him but it's another to just leave him the way he was on the road. It's just a basic human thing to help someone who just had any kind of accident. Don't they have a failure to assist to a person in danger policy in Korea!? I was so pissed!

DITTO. My interest went down to zero at that point. All the love i had, all the interest i had for the show - gone. I couldn't believe it!

I get that she blames herself. old habits are hard to break.

What i don't get is how she can leave him (possibly) dying on the road.

a person can lie on road for an hour before someone calls the ambulance (happens in my country all the time) ... people just walk by

And i think in most countries the quality of medical care differs depending on whether you can pay for it. I don't know how it works in korea but here, a nameless person alone in accident - would be shoved in an overworked, understaffed government hospital where they would take rudimentary care of him..... if someone is there with you, they take you to a better hospital and assure them that yes you have money, can you pls give best treatment to the person.

I just can't freaking believe it. you supposedly love him. he loves you enough to risk his life to save yours and you freaking leave him and run away ??????

Stay back if you feel jinxed but call for an ambulance, call his family, make sure that ppl are there to take care of him.

And then we are back to zero - BN running away/ disappearing and SH running after her trying to convince her. Haven't we already seen this like a gazillion times?

That was the first big issue I had with this episode. I couldn't believe she actually left him there! No checking to make sure he's alive, no calling 911 (or 119). Heck! She didn't even check to make sure the person that hit him was going to call the ambulance. As traumatized as she is by previous experiences, I feel this was a flaw in writing or directing rather than acting. She's responsible enough of a character to at least call the ambulance.

Another HUGE issue I have with this episode is the nonsensical contradiction between her noble idiot move of breaking up and the rest of her behavior. If she left because she felt that her bad luck was to blame, then why is she confident enough to stay near her sister? If she's superstitious about affecting SH than shouldn't her superstitious behavior affect ALL parts of her life? If we are going with this character move she should be avoiding her sister again or at least carrying tons of salt and beans around with her again. But our time jump shows us no evidence that she is still superstitious. So...why is she staying away from SH? Makes NO sense to me. Pointless plot move by the writers.

The only redeeming quality of this particular episode was RH and DN's love line. They made me laugh. As sad and pointless as the break-up was, I loved the scene near the end, where they walked on the path together silently. I had to keep replaying the scene just to listen to the lovely song again.

Does anyone know the name and/or singer of that song?

The character of SH continues to be the only reason I keep watching this.

Exactly. The contradiction makes no sense. Why would she stick close to her sister now ? in fact she should have run further away from her sister.

Or maybe she thinks that she can jinx only one person at a time! .... or maybe the writer thought that if she left her ill sister (with SH) and fled, that would make her character irredeemable. Not that there is much left.

This episode made me so mad. I don't blame her for reverting to her years of ingrained thinking. But basic responsibility and human decency should be there. Right ?

@Eyes @bips99 - this episode left me wondering about that contradiction too! If she really believed she was going to be bad luck and hurt everyone she comes into contact with, then she had no business being that close to her sister either! Ugh this writer makes NO SENSE.

@Eyes - that song is "Lean on Me" by Junsu. I love it too!

Completely agree with you! Maybe she thinks that since her sister woke up it means that her recovery will no longer be blocked by her bad luck. I know it's a little far-fetched but we're talking about fortunetelling and Bo Nui...

That's not the right song. It's the one the woman sings while they walk quietly down the path, from the time he suggests taking the walk to when they sit on the bench to talk. I tried listening to "Lean On Me" but it doesn't sound the same.

Something about the music makes me think of something that would belong in a pensive moment in a Miyazaki film or like a Korean Loreena McKennitt song.

I could listen to the song all day. If anyone has ideas of what it is called and the singer, I'm pretty desperate to know. Until then, I just have to keep listening to that minute of song while trying to search for it online.

She left him there because she fears her bad luck would kill him!! She is superstitious and she think that she's caused the bad luck and if she goes any closer to him, he'll die! That is what I got from her reaction and I thought that was who she really is...blame blame blame herself for all the bad luck that attracts her loved ones. I was perfectly okay with that scene.

I said in the earlier episode that it wouldn't be logical if she did NOT blame herself. Its so ingrained in her. Thats ok

What most of us don't get is her leaving him unattended in the middle of the road, injured, possibly dying.

She could have stayed back, not gone near him, called the ambulance, called his friends/family, made sure that someone else was there for him

No matter what your hangups are, no one who claims to love a person, can leave the said person on the road after an accident. No one.

You may leave him alone and run to another city later on ... but you don't leave him bleeding on the road

Like bips99 I completely get that she blames herself but still she shouldn't just leave him there. And let's face it, had he been in a harsher accident, he would have maybe died not because of her bad luck but because of her lack actions to try to save his life.

@Miranda - I am with you 1000%! I was so angry about this last night that I felt depressed and didn't sleep well. It's not the story or even the plot -it's the absolute gall of the writer and director thinking that we - the viewers - actually enjoy being insulted by something so ludicrous. We're supposed to love and approve of this and be happy that our darling lead actor is going to invite this utter BULLSHIT for the rest of his life????
There is still steam coming out of my ears!????⚡️?

I stopped watching midway episode 12. I would have stopped watching sooner had it not been for my love for RJY. For some reason, I really got annoyed with the BN character that I cannot go any further, not even for the sake of RJY. Boy, was I glad I stopped! I was so mad just by reading the recaps. Imagine how upsetting would it be if I had actually wasted an hour to see BN walk away while SH is lying on the road, injured and possibly dead? I always said that noble idiocy is crazy but this, this is a whole new level of crazy.

I couldn't bring myself to continue after finishing ep13. Interest dropped so low, bo nui is so so frustrating. Read ep 14 recap and realised bo nui didn't run away and regained hope, but the truck of doom left me wary so waited for ep 15 recap. Urgh, this ep 15 is so shitty. Think I'll just skip to ep 16 and pretend eps 14-15 do no exist. Reading ep 15 recap makes my blood boil.

Your comment is everything, urgh, I wanted to throw my iPad against the wall while watching this episode.

I mean...WHAT.THE ACTUAL.F***?! Calling an ambulance, following him to the hospital and at least making sure he's fine before disappearing? Nah, lemme grab my purse (yeah, of course she did not forget that!) and run away because I bring bad luck and kill everyone around me, but hey, that won't stop me from taking my sister with me because apparently she's immune to my bad juju now or however that works.

I never managed to completely warm up to BN and her superstition during the past 14 episodes but this...this just doesn't make any sense and I hereby declare this writer as absolutely nuts.

And JSH, he's officially a saint although I'd rather think that there's some weird black magic/voodoo shit going on here because I don't understand how he can just love her so freaking much and are willing to wait for her forever.

Sigh, one more episode to go, I'm gonna miss JSH, Dal-nim and Ryang-ha. Everything else...not so much.

On another note, Miranda, maybe BN really should stay away from him because she also ditched the pants underneath the dresses after leaving him...oh and apparently Amy and OHY share the same clothes. ;-)

That was the stupidest most nonsensical thing ever. I can understand feeling scared, or feeling guilty or panicked in the moment of shock/horror. But Bo-nui running away...that was just IDIOTIC. This episode was so weak and the finale too. I mean I get the meaning the writer was trying to bring the conclusion to, but MANNNNN I was dumbfounded to see this entire episode. She runs aways, she imagines him, and hides from him? And what is wrong with Gary - he's never helped Bo-nui, only asking things from her, and the one time he 'offers help,' it is in the most stupidest way ever by helping her run away??!?!

Maybe she ran awaybecause she just thought that her surrounding aura of bad luck would further suffocate SH and in turn causing him a slow and painful death of sorrow instead of minor bruises and a broken arm.

While writing ^ it just made me picture a dead SH just thinking of his past regrets up in the clouds and saying aloud something along the lines of "wow that crazy bat just ran away from my dying body right after I sacrificed my life for hers". Idk it's like 3am and I just wanted to see DB reaction after watching this episode.

But yea totally agree that it was dumb move and that SH should cut her loose.
(But we all know that's not happening because of all the super forced signs that she is coming back to that company and the usual drama trope of happily ever after but who am I to judge, I've only been watching dramas for a few years and have zero experience or skill in narrative writing and assessing)
ps. Replying to your own comment to add something on even though you had an extra 2600 characters to use but you just forgot to add it in on the end feels very awkward idk I'm just very rangy about the little things

Though I definitely get why people find Bo-Nui frustrating (and, full disclosure, I'm definitely Team "Get Out While You Can, Su-Ho"), the scene where Bo-Nui leaves Su-Ho bleeding in the street made me realize something important about her: she's mentally ill.

She exhibits a lot of symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder: the repetitious behaviors, the obsession with particular objects, the genuine fear of the consequences if she does something that violates these compulsive behaviors or does not appropriately handle objects of obsession. Running away after your boyfriend's been hit by a car isn't the behavior of a sane woman.

Because of this, I think the show ended up doing Bo-Nui and Su-Ho both a disservice by depicting Bo-Nui as a lovable kook. If they were going to intensify her interest in fortunetelling and talismans to such an extreme extent--where she lives less in the realm "somewhat superstitious" and more in the realm of "barely functional"--they should've re-calibrated the romance to more accurately address Bo-Nui's problems.

I'm thinking something along the lines of It's Okay, That's Love, which (while not a flawless show) did a pretty good job of depicting a romance that's tinted by mental illness. If the writers wanted so much to push Bo-Nui into pathological behaviors, they should've given her a therapeutic framework wherein she could work on her issues. In the end, this relationship feels unsatisfying--at least in part--because the writers haven't allowed Bo-Nui to progress psychologically.

Oh my God. The person you love lies bleeding, possibly DYING and you RUN AWAY?! Writer/PD-nim, was it too LOGICAL to ask for Bo Nui to attend to Su Ho first before doing the noble idiocy thing if she must?

For me there is no OTP here. How can there be when the character growth and effort is so disproportionate? It actually sits better with me if they really do break up for good. The silver lining being that she helped JSH know how to love and he helped her get Bora back. Otherwise how do you spend 15 episodes showing us that Bo Nui chose to let the superstitions run her life and then still end up with JSH? Maybe they'll have a shaman say that she's no longer unlucky and then that'll be it.

I'm so disappointed cos I was expecting a fates-be-damned kind of development in the drama. Being courageous to challenge obstacles in your life, that we hold our fate in our hands thing. That it's how we get up after we fall and what we choose to do to help OURSELVES. Not leave it to an external force and wait to see what happens. Bo Nui showed signs of it but it was so brief. There was also a lack of logic in some of the developments to ground the drama for me. For example, if BN had been that superstitious from a young age, I could (probably) buy into the extremeness of it. But BN only started when Bo Ra had the accident 2 years ago.

Show, you should be extremely super duper thankful that you cast RJY as the lead to still have viewers like me watching til now! I wanted so badly to drop this by Ep 6 til JSH being in love happened. I have never been so annoyed with a drama's plot/female lead character as I've been  here. HJE did the best she could with what was given to her. I don't know why the writers didn't give her character the same growth trajectory as SJH.

"I’m so disappointed cos I was expecting a fates-be-damned kind of development in the drama." - THIS.

They had the perfect opportunity to show that in Episode 14 - I thought it was the perfect setup watching her struggle internally, but then still choose Suho anyway. But that lasted all of 5 seconds before they gave us the speeding car of doom. Then the writer makes Bonui the biggest noble idiot in dramaverse by having her run away without even providing basic first aid to Suho. He could've been bleeding to death on the streets of Seoul!!

Bo Nui might have been wrong for blaming herself for all the 'bad luck' - her parents' death, sister's accident, the IF incident etc; but if Suho bled to death on the street, it's really HER fault for running away and not helping him at all.

If the driver choose to hit and run, then SH might have died since BN just left him there, it's not really a consolation that we hear ambulance sirens in the background.

If it was night time, SH could've died since there's a huge chance that there's not a lot of people to witness the scene.

The silver lining being that she helped JSH know how to love and he helped her get Bora back.

This is what i have never understood. How, how did she help SH in anything ? How did she teach him love ?

She just told him - you are a nice person. That is it. Nothing else.

I can't believe that SH who is surrounded by RH, DN, adorable zeze staff, and mom (in her own ditzy way) had no one tell him that he is a decent person.

He is the one who took care of her while she repeatedly attacked him for interfering in her 'tiger' plans. She did nothing for him. Hell! she turned on him wrt his dad case.

Ya! she is a "nice" person. But 99% of all heroines are nice. otherwise there will be no love story. but what else ?

I honestly want to know - What did she ever do for him ?

That is one of the weakness in the writing. The thing is we know in dramas that the male lead changes when in love because it so happens that the lady he was in love with was the one who got through to him to be more honest and open.

They did the same thing here. However, the writers just FORCED the same idea to us, but it was weak because it seems like it was the MERE PRESENCE of BN (not her character/personality) that did it. So yeah, she helped him grow: the how is questionable but the result is there. JSH had Amy, his parents, Ha Ryang, but none of them ever made him come out of his shell until BN came along.

If this was done right, Bo Nui should have grown as a character too, and we'd know that they've earned the love that they have for each other cos they make each other better.

After reading all the livecaps I'm seeking shelter here because I can't bear to watch this frustration. Go ahead, shoehorn a stupid time skip here... UGH why do you have to make BN so friggin... WEAK?? She gave a good fight last ep but buckles at the most important moment... The only thing I could get myself to watch was SH giving the shaman the smack down-- Don't talk about carelessly about fate, because the woman you pushed to the edge of a cliff (with all your dumb fate talk) is my everything! implodes*

Seriously, after this episode, no guy like SH exists... because if it was me, if someone repeatedly chose to abandon me because of the issues they couldn't work out yet, I'd be all torn up on the inside and choose to let that person go for my own sanity. "I'll wait a year, even 10 years for you"?? I don't know if I can live like that or even think back on our memories fondly. I'd genuinely wish that person the best to work out their issues and step out of their emotional prison, or like SH check in on BR once in a while, but I don't think I can tell myself to still love that person just the same-- I'd need some safe emotional distance. If I haven't found someone else by the time they come back to me, I might give them another chance. SH's proven himself to be gently persistent, standing by BN through thick and thin, but this last abandonment is too much for anyone to deal with no matter how emotionally strong you are, let alone someone who just came out of his own shell of emotional hurts. SH is too good to be true =P However, he didn't disappoint me in that he kept working at his professional career with a new start. That's ma genius boy =) who never gives up.

Look the overall message of this story is actually pretty good-- about overcoming fears (well that's arguable lol) and being healed/freed, which I surmise to be one of the reasons RJY took on this project in the first place. But the execution was just friggin TERRIBLE writer, you just got yourself a lot of angry viewers

Two sw already created his characters amazingly loveable and he acted it perfectly, made us crazy head over heels for him but somehow they left us mad and unsatisfied at the end. The first one created such a lovable tsundre yet frustrating selfless person of all time with no closure, and the second one created such a loverboy only to be paired with frustrating selfless female character of all time.

Logically, with how the story has guided us and informed us about Bo-nui's character, I get fear and her superstition. But emotionally, the moment she left a prone Su-ho on the road, I disconnected from her and her love for him. The last couple of episodes are the ones where we usually are like "yes finally get them together". Here, I just want Su-ho to move on to someone else who is more healthy for him.

I just want to be in the writers head when they wrote/typed this on paper an how clearly terrible it would be (especially getting hit by a car scene) once brought to life by the actors. Some people on viki there comments became way too much cussing her out an even the actress playing the character it got to the point where you just turned the comments off cause people couldn't depict real life from fictional characters LOL

I might have missed out on this in earlier episodes (considering that my interest has dwindled) but were we told why Bo Nui dresses that way? Like dress + pants + sneakers and what other awful combo she comes up with. Does she dress that way to ward off her bad luck?

On a serious note, I thought that the whole episode was completely unnecessary. I hated the whole 1 year thing. The break up was unnecessary cause I know they'll come back to each other in the end anyway. I think that they probably have no more story to tell so they're dragging it out with this whole accident thing so that they can hit 16 episodes.

The only reason why I'm still holding on thus far is to see if Ryang Ha and Dal Nim would ever get together.

I've decided her hideous dress sense is a deliberate choice on the part of either the director or the actress to project Bo Nui's fundamental inability to make sensible life choices.

"Should I attribute all bad luck to the ramblings of a shaman?" "Should I wear two dresses, wool socks, a poncho and birkenstocks in the middle of summer in public?" "Should I continue to show completely insane loyalty to my thieving, gambling boss?" "Should I leave my boyfriend possibly fatally injured in the middle of a city street and run away like a complete coward?"

I, for one, sense a pattern.

If we were to catalogue all of the people who deserved better than Bo Nui, the list would be crazy:

All of the doctors who probably told Bo Nui the importance of a physical presence at her sister's bedside. The nurses who had to capture crazy detail and report back to the sister who wouldn't go inside. The part-time bosses who put up with vanishing acts, inexplicable freakouts and talismans pasted on the ceiling. The landladies dealing with shrines full of candles. The moderators on those dating websites who kept having to block her seriously sinister-sounding come-ons. The poor citizens who just happened to get showered in beans or salt for no good reason at all. The factory workers who likely died from exhaustion producing so much denim at such volume.

But Bo Nui didn't leave any of them to die in the street like a dog, so they all still come out ahead of Su Ho.

It's good that the Lucky Romance universe it basically a whimsical one, where everyone is endlessly patient, forgiving and holds no ill will. I personally lost faith in Bo Nui episodes ago when she decided to sprinkle loose salt and beans all over Su Ho's newly washed car because she felt anxious. Because honestly, that's a crazy level of entitlement.

Thank you for the laughs. I know that I can rely on beanies comments to lighten up my sour mood after watching this ep.

I wanted them to be together before, but it was before her act of leaving him alone on the street which really pissed me off. And now I really want Suho to find a nice normal girl, who will love him just the way he is. And I kinda wished, SH really break up with BN for good, because he no longer can understand her (which will not be the case because obviously they will be back together).

Too bad, his character is kinda impossible to find in real world. I really wish to find one SH of my own :)

IMO her haircut is weird enough. I know it's really trendy right now, but I will never support it!

It was very popular in the US in the mid 70s and after following the 76 Olympics when Dorothy Hamill rocked that hair and won the gold.

In the early 90s I was very adamant against my mother's and aunties' suggestions that I cut my hair thusly. Heck, I wanted hair to the floor. But one auntie took me for what she promised was "trim" and I left as a 6 year old with Bo Ni's hair and I still give my aunt grief about her betrayal and have not let my hair get any shorter than well past my shoulders to this day. End of random personal anecdote.

I wish Bo Ni had a different hairdo!

Things in this episode that made me go WHAT THE HELL...

- Her LEAVING SUHO to bleed on the street!
- Her thinking that she is bad luck and runs away from Suho, yet she sticks close to her sister. Makes no sense!
- The short exchange with the Shaman, which did little to move the plot forward or serve a purpose for the greater message of the story (the way I see it, there is no message or moral to this story). So we're basically just left scratching our heads again because the Shaman really believed everything he said, and everything he said actually came true??? I cannot believe how anti-climactic that scene was. I'm glad Suho gave him a piece of his mind, but still... nothing came out of it, and the Shaman didn't deal with any consequences or remorse over what he's done to Bonui's life.
- The time jump. REALLY?!!? That was necessary?? The writer should have written it so that the raccoon hacker was caught, Suho was redeemed, and reclaimed his spot as CEO of Zeze again. Wish they wrote the story in a way that proved that sometimes coincidences just happen. That we are not bound to our fate, and that our choices make an impact too. Instead, one year passes... and we see Suho having to start over from the ground up because he lost everything??? This was terrible terrible writing. Even on a time crunch, I could've written a better plot.

I started rolling my eyes right there and then never really stooped throughout the episode. No wait, I already was rolling my eyes last episode during another car crash where I'm just left confused why the person getting hit has time to push the other one away and then just... stands there... preparing himself... to get hit...
Dramaland, why are all your car crashs so nonsensical.

Like, I get they want some Big Drama and can't just go towards the happy end because of Drama Laws, but this was kind of the worst way to go about it. I understand where Bo Nui is coming from but the way her choices were presented I was just plain ANNOYED.
Noble Idiocy like that makes the character look selfish instead of the selfless sacrifice they think they're making. HJE tries her best with this character but the writing is just SO IRRITATING. If Bo Nui only changes her mind after the Shaman "clears" her or something, I'll throw a table across the room. Maybe.

Su Ho remains the best and I'm kind of mad this wonderful male lead is stuck in such a frustrating drama.

How much did I enjoy Su Ho telling the Shaman off though? So much.

I HAVE EFFING HAD IT WITH K-DRAMA NOBLE IDIOCY!!!!!!!! This is me screaming right now! As a trained advanced first aid- emergency responder - ski patrol person I absolutely HATE it in dramas when an accident happens and the actor just stands there - or doesn't react instantly. I have pulled people out of car wrecks and dealt with some awful circumstances and k-dramas drive me NUTS !!! It's even happening in the new drama "Doctors"! Park Shin Hye does it at the scene of an accident - as a DOCTOR! She should be fired!
But Lucky Romance takes the cake! Not only does she not run to him instantly - she runs AWAY and moves away?????? I was steaming mad and screaming at my computer. I even yanked my earphones out and THREW my laptop across the bed and onto the (carpeted!) floor. Can you imagine his hurt when he woke up? After he knew she was OK???? I can't imagine how I feel if my daughter did this. Not even my ex- husband would do this!! I went crazy toward the end of Angel Eyes when she did the noble idiocy thing and I yelled at him to RUN away! Don't marry her! Run!
And now we have adorable, loving Jo Se Oh dealing with this damaged female!!! Ah - my heart. Before they get their happy ending the writer better PROVE to me that she is 100% changed and over this insanely stupid behavior because she'll do it again and again. This is proving nothing but her ignorance and stupidity. People this dumb don't really ever change. Somehow she needs to learn her lesson in a really BIG way - a big painful way - the harshest tough love ever and the script needs to pull this out of the toilet or I am going to be PISSED. I'm almost dreading tonight because this can't be an easy fix to be satisfying. He is too good for her.

SH didn't come to BN's hideout to break-up. He came to confirm her love for him. When her eyes welled up with tears and she said nothing, he flashed a tiny little smile. It's a nice way of echoeing the moments before their first (second?) kiss. She didn't try to refute his logic back then, and she won't say that she wanted to end things. He knows she doesn't want to breakup, she's just scared. This makes her a coward, but it also means she won't use him as a crutch to "get better." I was uneasy about how the show keep having SH say "lean on me." Yes, Noble Idiocy was in full force, but having BN rely on anything but herself at this point is just as bad. BN's desperation bred a kind of dependency on superstitions. It'll just seem like she's hopping from one drug to the next. She needs to pull herself out of that cycle of fear and self-incrimination. That is the only way she could truly be free.

To be honest, I don't remember being so unengaged in a drama in my history of watching dramas. Like, I could be playing games on Nintendo or be cooking a dinner in another room, while watching and I still wouldn't care?

There's just that painful... nothingness? In the storyline, in the characters, in the development (or in the lack of it), in the chemitry between all the characters (except for Dalnim and coffee-shop boss, they are the best thing about this drama). Most of the time nothing happens. And when something happens, it already happened so many times in another dramas I'm just sitting yawning and thinking about what to pack on my holidays.

Writer was given a truly unique and interesting setup, but not only did he/she change it to point it can't be called adaption, but also watered down all the themes and struggles which resulted in such an uninteresting watch I'd skip the 16th episode just to see how it ends (but I never do this, so I can't, shame).

And truthfully, I didn't even realize the true weight of the first scene until I read your comments, guys. I forced myself to rewatch it and she really left a love of her life on the street for the sake of her own internal struggles without taking care of his safety and health first.
Mess, mess, mess. I don't know writer tried to accomplish with Bo-nui's character at this point. But on the other hand, do I even care?

After yelling at my laptop for Bo Nui's abandoning Su Ho in his own blood I actually watched the episode while running apps on my phone. That's how boring the episode was to me.

HOW HOW HOW??? How can the scriptwriter turn a pretty interesting webtoon into this mess. Honestly I feel like the first big mistake was changing the whole premise of the webtoon. I was so disappointed when they decided to change everything about the story like making a very stingy male character the lead was so funny. He would even collect Bonui's salt to make pickles LMAO in the web ton!! But then I wonder even if they decided to stick to the original story will it still become a mess. I just hope to god that RJY picks a better scriptwriter but now I'm just worried that he is going to say in movie land forever. *WAILLLS* Anyways I'm looking forward to The King and Taxi Driver.

Yikes I would've liked to see what the show could've been had they been faithful to the original story :( Sounds like it would've been great.

I seriously don't feel like watching the finale.... but at the same time I just think eh I have to finish it somehow.

The thing is that given RJY's comic timing in the show, he could have easily pulled off a stingy character. I can totally imagine him scuttling around gathering salts for pickle ... and then flaying when caught ... lol

What a waste of so many good actors

I agree - what is the point of adapting a webtoon when you take out so much of the story! This could easily be named a different title, and change the tiger part a bit. If I were the artist of the webtoon, I would want to bomb the whole set!
(No wonder Taecyeon didn't take on the second lead)

And YES! RJY would have been SO AWESOME playing a stingy character! Such a shame.

Recap was out so quick, was like "want to watch and not getting spoiled", but can't resist so read anyway, and now was like "ok, will just watch Ryang Ha & Dal Nim part"...

SBN is such a horrible person I have no words for it. She is "blaming" herself as a cover to run away from problems. She never faces reality head on, but instead, takes the easy way out and uses "fate" to her advantage, so it is right that she will have to delete herself off of any bad situation. What sane person would leave an injured person bleeding on the street... I wouldn't even do that to the one I absolutely hate!!

It's the same case with her sister - when BR was in the most critical condition, she never even went near her "because she brings bad luck." How easy it is so she wouldn't have to take up the responsibilities of caring for her. All she had to do was to be outside of the bedroom, and that's it.

And to be honest, her superstitious behavior only started when she first met the Shaman, which was really only two years before the first episode!!! If she had never met him, she would have to shoulder the duties of really taking care of her sister, being there for her, and physically assisting her.

On the outside, she's blaming herself. In reality, she runs away and blames it on fate.

DESPICABLE!

I think what I hate most is that the drama gives such a bad image of believing in fate//religion/etc. The drama is such a disappointment. I was expecting for Su Ho's logic and Bo Nui's fortune belief to find a middle ground. Because in real life people have a religion and yet don't entirely rely on it (or we would all be monks/nuns/etc). And even if you don't have a religion, some people have a belief like astrology or whatever. And yet people are not as extreme as Bo Nui. I believe in fate but I don't believe that my fate is to bring people around me bad luck. It just doesn't make sense

They shouldn't have changed the storyline in the first place is what I was thinking. If they kept it like the story was supposed to be originally I think the story would've have been more interesting to watch. I honestly could care less for ZeZe Factory or filthy rich CEO. That part of the storyline made me cringe and I could never take it seriously. It's a shame that this story flopped because I was really rooting for it in the beginning.

Why wasn't I surprised. After all this drama has HJE. She is a queen of melodramas for me. Being a noble idiot and crying seem to be her selling point or thats why she's hired. Yea well so it was typical of this to happen. I really like her as an actress and that is how i ended up seeing few of her dramas and this was so recurring in her dramas..'she was pretty'..'secret love'..'can you hear my heart..took the cake though. Thats when i realized i think i don't like her so much to tolerate the dramas. I hope she gets to do some light dramas in the future and not typecast like this.
RJY was the only reason i cared to watch this drama. That smile can melt mountains :)

I really loved this drama up until the last few minutes of episode 14, the moment when they were running towards each other....And now, I'm just so detached. Where did the fun go?

I understand BN but her actions and choices are upsetting, especially when she made so much progress. They spent so much time showing us that BN is changing and even when she doubts herself, just seeing SH smile makes her forget the idea that she’s bad luck. So, it’s really disappointing that they went with the Noble Idiocy. It’s so poorly written.

It’s not her fault SH got hit by a car and got hurt to save her and if the situation was reversed, if she was the one who saw the car coming, she would’ve done the same and choose to save him. That doesn’t mean that SH has bad luck, but it just proves how much they love each other.

I know her guilt and beliefs are too strong but I wished her love for him was stronger.

That's it, after this drama and Oh My Venus last year all I can say is beware of new (rom-com) drama writers!
From now on whenever I see a newbie writing a rom-com I better wait till the drama has finished before deciding to watch it or not because what a waste of time, dude! For both dramas I could've just gone on youtube and look for the best cuts without missing out on anything or pulling my hair out of frustration.
Seriously, you have a great cast, a good premise and you come up with so much cowpoop?! Urgh.

Gosh, I thought we got over the noble idiocy, because SH tried so hard to assure her that all of the unfortunate events are not her fault. And I cannot believe that BN left SH on the street, bleeding, and did not even call an ambulance. & If she is going back to her old ways, why is she suddenly back with her sister?

To be honest, I gave up with the plot of this drama ages ago. Ryu Junyeol & his character is what made me continue to watch this trainwreck, as I believe SH is probably one of the best kdrama leads I've seen. What a waste of talents of the whole casts. Junyeol, Jungeum, Chungah & Soohyuk deserved better.

I am sorry.. but someone who never had situation like BN will never understand the fear she had.. She panic because she didnt want to trust that fortuneteller but suddenly all turn real and it just strikes her hard that it happen. that fear.. that pain.. is indescribable.. the feeling that you felt is just as same as you are murdering people...

Can I assume that you have been in both situations? Or have heard this statement confirmed by a person who has willingly opened up about this topic that has been held in this situation? Is this too rude of a question to ask? Idk please don't kill me the internet isn't helping me portray my genuine curiousity and I have a feeling this post may come of as sarcastic or something bad

As pissed as I was with their break up, it was so pointless and the writing just to get there was terrible, I have to say Hwang Jung Eum and Ryu Jun Yeol really sold that scene for me. When she kept looking at his hand wanting to reach out but hesitating because she saw the bandage around it and when he held her and softly said Goodbye. Gah!!!

That scene with Su Ho and the shaman. About damn time!

Boss Won is the raccoon!

Bo Ni did the same thing Amy did to Su Ho, just packed up everything and left!

Noble Idiocy sucks!

LollyPip- I agree with, Bo-Nui's Noble Idiocy actions are disrespectful. Disliked her character in this episode the moment she walked away from Su-ho at the accident. Fight or flight ? - she flew. He deserved more from her.

The goodbye walk, enhanced by Lee So-Ra's Star song, broke my heart. Not for Bon- Nui, but Suho. At this point in the episode I was ok with Suho finding someone else to love instead of waiting for Bo-Nui indefinitely. I haven't been fully invested in the mashup of RJY and HJE, but the storyline was interesting and Su-Ho's capable, Mr. All-In, goofy smart guy kept me returning for more.

This drama has cemented my love for Ryu Jun Yeol. Such a great actor! I want more smart and interesting lead roles for him in the future. This drama also added a new beautiful song to my playlist - Lee So-Ra Star. Worth the 16 episode investment for both take-aways.

I'm not going to diss Bonui nor HJE because the one who's responsible for creating the storyline is the writer nim ... WTF writer nimm???? why would you destroy Bonui's character like that ??? why would you make her character seem so pathetic ??? why writer nim ??? why ???the same thing goes to the fashion coordinator as well , both of them are the one who makes people dislike Bonui , hence some of the dislikers tend to dislike HJE just because of the character that portrays here .. OMG!!! I hate the writer nim so much!! I hate the writer for putting down women's character in this story . that's it.

Did he buy another lucky cactus? Because the one BN gave him broke in the previous ep.

“As Bo-nui said, he doesn’t know how to give up, so to let her go that way must have been harder for him than if he’d tried to hang onto her. But I understand that for him, at some point he had to stop fighting her dependence on superstition and realize that nothing he ever does will make her change… if she’s going to change, she has to do it on her own.”

Well said, thanks lollypip!

I feel like I'm going to get banned from life for saying this. But...

I'm not upset with Bo Nui for running. Would I do it? No. Do I understand why the character did? Yes.

Idk, I assumed she called before leaving. I watched it over 24 hours ago but only got halfway. So I checked the beginning again after reading all the comments.

I feel like she backed up from the car, enough that her 'bad aura' wouldn't be active. Then, called 119. And then ran. We see her back up and then we see her down the street or a couple blocks. There's no telling what happened in between. However, the script writer is supposed to tell us that so I get not making that assumption.

But considering she was the only source for informing the rest of the cast, we're told Amy and possibly she told his parents, I think she called, ran, and then updated the information to get a replacement.

Yes, it isn't the best reaction and I would prefer if none of my loved ones did it to me. But as a personality, her reaction was perfectly in line with who she is.

I also get why they love each other. Why Je Soo Ho 'changed' the way he did (though it seemed more like a flipped perspective story telling device, first half was Bo Nui and second half was Soo Ho). I don't really count the break up. They weren't in contact. But they weren't with anyone else. He confirmed her love and said to find him when she was ready. Noble of him but in line with his personality and their relationship as well.

The 4 flaws (which is a surprisingly low number to me) I have with this entire show are:
The dangerous tiger chase
The fact that Zeze got hit in a similar way twice with no one checking the download before releasing it to the world (I'm not in IT, but that doesn't make sense to me)
The fact that Soo Ho doesn't have any of his former employees a year later or that they weren't mentioned as moving on. Who is running Zeze? (Maybe ep 16 will tell me)

And the year jump. I feel like the only real advantage was showing Bo Ra's progress (could have done that in the middle of 16). I understand a jump but 3 months or at most 6 months, like Entertainer. I can imagine how that time would fly by and what the characters would be doing. But a year is just too long and unnecessary. Not everything lines up to 12 months. People don't go "it has now been exactly 357 days since that big change in my life, let me do something about it". 3 - 6 months would have been better.

Sorry for the long comment. I finally caught up to finish the same week so I wanted to join the conversation even though everyone has probably moved on to ep 16 or a new drama.

Watch ep 16 ruin my life.

It's not Noble Idiocy - It's incomplete playwrighting. Kdramas really need to step it up. They are masters at the pull and push. First they give you the sweet confessions and declarations that "no matter what, we won't break up" "i wont' lie to you" then in the next episode or maybe even in the same episode you get your heart handed to you.

My frustration with this drama - can fill 16 episodes.

I would have respected them if the drama ended at episode 14 (as awful as that would have been). I
