Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju: Episode 13

As much as this drama can make me nostalgic for the days of my youth, at times it also makes me very glad that those times are behind me. Growing up is difficult, and things like first love aren’t always all about sweet kisses and first snows. Becoming an adult means learning what you’re willing to stand up for, even when the odds are against you.

Note: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju will be pre-empted on Thursday, so Episode 14 will air next week. I’ll be white-knuckling it along with the rest of you until then!

 
EPISODE 13: “Jealousy is Love Rounded Up to the Next Step”

Bok-ju heads back to her dorm room after confessing to Joon-hyung, all happy smiles and giddy giggles. Joon-hyung is in the exact same state, and texts Bok-ju the moment he gets to his room. They text back and forth, telling each other to go to sleep, kicking and grinning like lovesick fools.

The next morning, Joon-hyung can’t keep his hands off Bok-ju when the two teams run into each other on the jogging track. They hang back to canoodle a bit, hugging and grabbing at each other like they can’t bear to be apart. So cute.

Nan-hee notices that Bok-ju is in an unusually good mood, though Bok-ju keeps the reason to herself. Joon-hyung texts her to meet him at “the toad’s house,” and she tells Nan-hee the message is just spam.

She gets all dolled up, even wearing makeup and pinning on her red bow hairpin. On her way out she notices that Shi-ho is still in bed, but she shakes off the moment of concern, excited to see Joon-hyung.

Joon-hyung lands a coin in the fountain’s stone cup just as Bok-ju arrives, and he tells her to make a wish. He gives her a kiss on the cheek while her eyes are closed, and Bok-ju pretends to be annoyed. Joon-hyung argues that she was the one kissing him yesterday, describing their kisses loudly while Bok-ju flails at him.

He notices her red hair pin, and frowns as he recognizes it as the one she wore for Jae-yi. He’s so jealous that he yells at her never to wear it again, calling it ugly and demanding she remove it this instant. When Bok-ju says it’s her only hairpin, Joon-hyung snatches it off her head himself, taking a few strands of hair with it. Oops.

He’s instantly sorry, and tries to take her hand. Bok-ju yanks her hand back, shy about her calluses, but Joon-hyung firmly holds her hand and says he’ll even massage it for her. Best boyfriend ever.

Back in their room, Shi-ho sleeps in and wakes up ill. She tries to reach her phone and ends up knocking it to the floor, where she can’t reach it.

Joon-hyung takes Bok-ju to buy a new hairpin, one he doesn’t associate with her former crush. He doesn’t deny being jealous, having watched Bok-ju suffer while she liked Jae-yi. Bok-ju loftily tells him that she’s not the type who will get jealous over little things, so he shouldn’t expect it. I have a feeling she’s going to eat those words.

They look through the pins, and Bok-ju frowns at Joon-hyung when he picks up one with a little piglet on it and calls it “Bok-ju.” He nixes any shaped like bows, and they finally settle on a cute little strawberry pin.

Bok-ju arrives back at her dorm room to find Shi-ho passed out on the floor next to her bottle of sleeping pills. She screams for help, and Shi-ho is rushed to the hospital.

Joon-hyung hears the news from his roommate Tae-kwon, who repeats the rumor that Shi-ho tried to commit suicide by taking pills. Joon-hyung rushes to the hospital, and finds Shi-ho still unconscious in the emergency room.

The doctor tells him that they pumped her stomach, and that she didn’t take many pills, so it probably wasn’t a suicide attempt. He says Shi-ho is malnourished and has high glucose levels, indicating that she may have an eating disorder, so they plan to hospitalize her for a while for more tests.

Joon-hyung slides to the side when Shi-ho’s mother and sister arrive, and watches as Shi-ho finally opens her eyes. He chooses not to stay, and slips away quietly.

Bok-ju runs into him and asks after Shi-ho, and she’s relieved to hear that she’s okay and didn’t try to kill herself. She feels guilty for suspecting something wasn’t right with Shi-ho after seeing her binge-eating, but Joon-hyung assures her that she’s not at fault and gives her a comforting hug.

Back in his room later, Joon-hyung checks his phone and sees that Shi-ho tried to call him while he and Bok-ju were looking at hairpins. Knowing that she tried to reach out to him and he missed her call makes him feel guilty.

Coach Yoon goes drinking with the university’s dean, who drunkenly promises to give Coach Choi her job back. Coach Yoon even makes the dean pinky-swear, and pays for his cab home.

Joon-hyung visits Shi-ho in the hospital, and she looks as though she’s feeling much better. They go outside to talk, and Joon-hyung apologizes for not answering the phone when she needed help. Shi-ho waves him off, saying that it’s all her fault.

She says that, even though she only collapsed yesterday, it feels like it happened a long time ago. She says that all they have is their athletics, and that she felt pushed and though the world was ending.

She says that she felt as if she were struggling to hold onto the edge of a cliff, and couldn’t admit it. But now she seems calmer, and says that she thinks she can put all that aside and just enjoy gymnastics.

She even apologizes for clinging onto Joon-hyung when he’d made it clear he didn’t want to get back together. Joon-hyung says they’re even, and they shake hands as friends, then Shi-ho cutely grumbles at him to call her “noona” from now on.

Shi-ho tells Joon-hyung that she’ll be released in a few days, and that she’ll need therapy. He recommends his therapist, and she gratefully accepts.

Joon-hyung is honest when Bok-ju calls and says he’s at the hospital, and she asks after Shi-ho. She says she was going to visit her today, so he tells her to come over when she can.

The dean tells Coach Yoon that he doesn’t plan to reinstate Coach Choi, that his higher-ups refused his decision. Coach Yoon argues that Coach Choi knows the students better than he does, and threatens to quit himself if the dean doesn’t rehire Coach Choi.

Bok-ju arrives at the hospital to find Joon-hyung attending to Shi-ho, and Shi-ho seems genuinely happy to see Bok-ju. Bok-ju gives her a bouquet of flowers, but Joon-hyung mentions Shi-ho’s pollen allergy and takes them away. When Shi-ho says she’s tired, Bok-ju offers to adjust her bed, but Joon-hyung takes the controls and does it.

Joon-hyung and Bok-ju leave the hospital together, and he notices that she’s terribly quiet today. Bok-ju snaps that he talks just to talk, and Joon-hyung recoils jokingly. He attributes Bok-ju’s crankiness to hunger, and takes her to a street cart for fish cakes.

Almost immediately, he gets a call from Shi-ho, who asks about his therapist. Joon-hyung steps away from Bok-ju to talk for a few minutes, during which she glares at him and scarfs down fish cakes.

When his call ends, Joon-hyung compliments Bok-ju on her eating habits, and calls her “my pig.” Oh honey, no. He’s smart enough to cancel that comment, but falls back to calling Bok-ju “Chubs,” which… isn’t better under the circumstances.

Bok-ju looks like she’s trying to kill him with her mind, and he doesn’t understand why he can’t call her that nickname anymore, but promises to stop. Then he calls her Chubs again. Bok-ju storms off, leaving him to pay for her mountain of fish cakes.

Joon-hyung doesn’t really get why Bok-ju is mad, and nothing he does or says makes her feel any better. He pesters Bok-ju until she yanks her hand away from him, accidentally cutting his finger in the process. He whines at her about the blood, and says that she should at least tell him why she’s angry.

They have a childish argument over whether she’s angry at all, until Bok-ju blows up and says that now she’s angry because he won’t leave her alone about it. She leaves to go to practice, leaving Joon-hyung as confused as ever and angry with her in return.

Bok-ju gets to the gym to find the mood subdued, the students worried what they’ll do if Coach Yoon really quit. They’re upset and start to lave, but team captain Woon-ki stops them by saying that this is all his fault. He explains that Coach Choi used the team funds to pay off his settlement, and apologizes for not speaking up sooner.

Bok-ju feels vindicated, having previously defended that Coach Choi wouldn’t have used the team money for no reason. She asks what they can do to stop their coaches from leaving, and the team hatches a plan to stage a hunger strike.

They stand outside the university office with placards, though Bok-ju pretty quickly regrets the choice to do this outside in the cold. The entire team grows hungry at the same time, and Woon-ki warns them to stop talking about food. The dean sees their protest, but he figures they’ll give up when they get too hungry and cold.

Joon-hyung goes to Jae-yi and asks how his dating situation is lately, since he doesn’t visit Dr. Go at school anymore. Jae-yi is surprised that Joon-hyung picked up on their cooling friendship, and Joon-hyung teases that Jae-yi has less dating sense than his younger brother.

Jae-yi asks how things are with Bok-ju, and Joon-hyung shyly admits that he confessed. But he says that he’s confused why women won’t just tell a man what they’re mad about, and Jae-yi tells him that he’ll figure out the answer if he thinks about it.

Joon-hyung passes by Bok-ju’s protest on his way home, and stops to ask what she’s doing. She refuses to speak to him, so he pulls her to the side of the tent, and fusses at her for staying out on such a cold night. He’s worried she’ll freeze, but she tells him to mind his own business.

Joon-hyung asks if Bok-ju is really going to be like this, when he’s only worried about her. She goes back to her friends without a word, and he snaps at her angrily to do whatever she wants.

Spurred on by his talk with Joon-hyung, Jae-yi waits for Dr. Go to come home from work that night. He asks if she’s ignoring his calls on purpose, and she admits that she is. She apologizes for being too emotional and blowing up at him, and he says he’s been thinking about what she said that day.

Jae-yi says that for ten years, she’s always been there when he needed a friend, and that he took her for granted. He asks her, “Let’s date,” but she says love isn’t a charity, and it doesn’t work that way. She says that she’ll just be thankful for his friendship, and goes inside.

Joon-hyung can hardly stand it, knowing that Bok-ju is out in the cold, and frustrated that she won’t say why she’s mad at him. He grows even more worried when he sees that it’s snowing.

The protesters take a break, and Bok-ju wanders over to the stairs to massage her cold feet. Suddenly Joon-hyung appears in front of her, and silently puts a pair of warming packs on her feet. He gives her his coat and scarf, wrapping her up tightly, and softly asks her to please take care of herself.

The weightlifting team members come back from their break and recognize Joon-hyung, noting that he and Bok-ju seem awfully close. Joon-hyung heads back to the dorm, and Bok-ju tells the team that he’s just a friend who was worried about her.

Uncle Dae-ho hovers over Bok-ju’s dad, worried he could collapse again. Dad picks up a fallen photo of Bok-ju winning a medal, and says that he has a strange feeling and tells Dae-ho to call her. He does, and she lies about having eaten today and says she’s at the gym.

One of the weightlifters collapses, and the team takes him off to the doctor, leaving only Bok-ju, Nan-hee, and Woon-ki at the protest. Nan-hee breaks first, then Bok-ju gets a nosebleed, and Woon-ki says that it’s over. Bok-ju doesn’t want to give up, and their spirits are lifted when Seon-ok runs over to them just in time.

She says that she ran away back to school while her mother was out shopping, and Nan-hee bursts into loud tears. The three friends hug, as the other weightlifters come running back with news.

They’ve discovered that the coach the dean hired to replace Coach Choi has no weightlifting experience, and only got the job because he’s friends with the dean. This injustice gives them fresh energy to continue the protest, and get their rightful coach back. They take the protest to the streets, marching up and down and chanting against corruption in the school.

Coach Yoon is woken by a call from the school, and he’s horrified to see the ruckus his students are causing. He stops them and demands to know what they’re doing, and they explain that they can’t stand back and watch their department disrespected this way. Coach Yoon is worried they’ll be blacklisted, and lies down in the street to protest their protest.

He gets another call, and this time it’s the dean. Coach Yoon’s whole mood changes as he listens, and he jumps up to tell the kids that Coach Choi will be reinstated with a salary cut to repay the money she took. Hooray!

Joon-hyung happens by just in time to see the entire weightlifting team celebrating in the street. He smiles to see Bok-ju’s happy face, and sighs at the entire bag of heating pads he’s bought for no reason. Oh, you sweet thing.

Coach Choi is notified, and the team break their fast with a party at Bok Chicken. Coach Yoon makes a toast to the team’s determination and willingness to do what they believe is right, then calls Coach Choi up to make a speech.

She stands and says a few humble words of thanks, and the students demand to see their coaches to do a love shot with arms linked around the neck. Coach Choi is nervous but willing, but the love shot is interrupted by Uncle Dae-ho.

Right in front of everyone, Dae-ho throws his arm around Coach Choi and announces that they’re dating. Coach Choi looks like she wants to sink into the floor, and drags Dae-ho outside to clear up some things.

He objects when she calls him “Bok-ju’s uncle,” preferring she call him by name. She tells him that she was really drunk when she said she’d date him, despite kissing him and everything. She apologizes and begs him to hit her, and Dae-ho nails the real issue — she has feelings for Coach Yoon.

Coach Choi denies it, and Dae-ho lets her have the lie. He says that if that’s the case, then he’s not giving up on her.

Joon-hyung calls Bok-ju several times, worried that she got sick from being in the cold. She’s fine, just ignoring his calls, and she rolls her eyes at Nan-hee and Seon-ok when they squeal wildly over Dae-ho’s public confession. Dad barks at the three of them not to date until later in life, and to focus on weightlifting for now.

The girls go back to the dorm, and Bok-ju calls Joon-hyung. He’s rocking nervously by the phone, waiting for her call, and fusses at her for ignoring his calls then asks if she’s okay. She asks if he wants to meet, saying she has something to give him, and he lights up like a Christmas tree.

They meet in the lobby, and Bok-ju coolly tosses Joon-hyung’s coat and scarf at him. He’s disappointed, but has her sit, and takes this chance to ask why she’s mad at him. She finally relents, and admits that she’s jealous of the way he was taking care of Shi-ho right in front of her.

I love how Joon-hyung’s face changes as he realizes that this has all been because she’s jealous. He reminds Bok-ju that she said childish jealousy wasn’t her style, and explains that he was only being so nice because he felt guilty for ignoring Shi-ho’s call for help.

He points out that Bok-ju has a past, too, though she insists that a one-sided love isn’t the same as a real ex-girlfriend. Joon-hyung grabs her in a big happy hug and refuses to let go, promising to tell Bok-ju everything from now on if she’ll do the same.

She jokes that Jae-yi bought her the strawberry pin, and Joon-hyung makes a face and says he’s going to see Shi-ho, hee. He goes back for another hug, and kisses the pout right off Bok-ju’s face.

They’re snugglier than ever the next day, and Joon-hyung can’t stop himself from glomping onto Bok-ju every second he can. She throws him off when she sees Shi-ho arriving home after being released from the hospital, and Joon-hyung wisely stops himself from helping Shi-ho with her bag.

Shi-ho notes that they seem awfully close, but she seems to be truly okay with it and even makes a joke (while Joon-hyung cheekily draws a heart on Bok-ju’s back, ha). Shi-ho goes inside, and Joon-hyung immediately jumps on Bok-ju again.

He pulls her hood up to keep her warm, and she pats his head and praises him for not paying attention to another girl. She loses another round of rock-paper-scissors and gets a thump on the head, then another, but Joon-hyung cheats and lets her win the third round.

Bok-ju gives him a hard thwack, and he deadpans that he’s breaking up with her now. Ha. Their bickering turns into a tickle fight, then another hug, right there in the middle of the street. In their happiness at just being together, they don’t notice that Bok-ju’s father rides past them on a delivery, and realizes that they must be dating.

COMMENTS

I just adore how real Bok-ju and Joon-hyung’s relationship feels, even when they aren’t getting along. The way they can’t stop smiling, and thinking about each other, and especially the way they can’t keep their hands off each other, just feels so true-to-life. I’ve always felt that dramas can be disingenuous about new couples, who barely act any different after getting together after one chaste kiss, then never touching each other again. In real life, young love is all about the skinship, and just enjoying your new-coupleness as much as possible. This show doesn’t shy away from that truth — Bok-ju and Joon-hyung are healthy young people, so of course they get giddy and handsy!

I also thought their jealous fight was realistic — not only did Joon-hyung seem to Bok-ju to be paying a lot of attention to Shi-ho all of a sudden, but she’s his ex-girlfriend, of all people. I felt that Bok-ju’s jealousy was understandable, and she didn’t go overboard expressing it either. Not only was Joon-hyung acting awfully boyfriend-y with Shi-ho, but he then actually dared to call Bok-ju a pig, getting right to her insecurities about not being a dainty feminine girl. She had every reason to be angry, especially since he didn’t even know why that was unacceptable, and let’s be honest — Joon-hyung is an adorable bouncy puppy, but sometimes his playful teasing gets a little mean. He needs to learn where the line is, so I’m proud of Bok-ju for setting that boundary quite firmly.

But I also loved that, even when Bok-ju wasn’t even speaking to him, Joon-hyung’s first concern was still to take care of her. The whole scene where he brought her foot-warmers just melted me, even though they barely said a word. They didn’t need to — Joon-hyung made it clear to Bok-ju that even if she’s not speaking to him, even if she pushes him away, he’s still going to be there for her. That whole scene was so lovely… Joon-hyung clearly shows Bok-ju his love at every opportunity, even when things aren’t going well between them.

I don’t mean to talk about Joon-hyung and Bok-ju to the exclusion of the other wonderful characters in this drama, and it would be a shame to leave them out. I particularly liked seeing the students finally get involved with Coach Choi’s dismissal, and do something about it, at least to the extent that they could. What she did was wrong, but Woon-ki let it happen by not speaking up, and it was nice to see him stand up for her in return. It was also good to see Jae-yi and Dr. Go talk about their relationship, even if it was for her to tell him that you can’t force love to happen just by willing it. She was right to point out that he can’t make himself care for her in a romantic way, though I suspect he’s going to discover that he already does, and just took that for granted, too.

I was particularly glad that Dae-ho and Coach Choi got a chance to talk about their problem, since it was getting painful to watch Dae-ho continue to think that Coach Choi shared his feelings. Now he knows the truth, and he’s declared his intention to pursue her properly, which is a good place to start. And while she may still have feelings for Coach Yoon, he’s a married man, so Coach Choi really needs to move on. She could do a lot worse than a sweet guy like Dae-ho.

And now I’m concerned about Dad’s reaction to the realization that Bok-ju is dating. Yes, she’s an adult, and he’s come a long way in allowing her to make her own decisions, but I can’t imagine he’s going to be happy about this. She just decided to come back to weightlifting, and has the potential to be sponsored and make a career out of her dream. It’s a bad time for her to be distracted, and with the way Dad sees her as his last chance at weightlifting success, I can’t help but worry at how he’s going to react.

If you've watched the BTS of Ep 12 of them at the park where she said she likes him, you'd see LSK patting off snow flakes off NJH's coat. She patted his coat too hard that it looked like she's actually hitting him.
NJH: You've been hitting me for the past 3 years. You should stop now.
LOL!

I love how genuine they look together in Ep 13 too!

Which is funny right because Sung Kyung is like a goddess to my eyes. Of course they tried to downplay her beauty to be 'average', but lately in the newer episodes, Bok Joo's hair is starting to frame around Sung Kyung's face and when the camera closes up on her face. WHAT?! Average, pfft??!?? She's really starting to be more and more gorgeous, and believe it or not, I prefer the old look because looking at Sung Kyung close up face makes me question my gender preferences. ?

And here I thought we could do with less "pretty" girls in dramas. Seriously. It's a shame how beauty-focused the majority is. When you think about it, in this drama, Lee Sung-kyung is already far prettier than how Bok-joo is often perceived within the show.

@ Chandler i agree with you my friend *virtual high five*

I don't agree at all. I have been wondering why k-drama most of the time couples plain-Jane girls with gorgeous men.
There are exceptions: Han Ye-Seul (Oh My Venus, Madame Antoine), Jun Ji-Hyun (Love from Another Star, The Legend of the Blue Sea) and Kim You-Jung (Moonlight Drawn by Clouds) come to mind.
But most of the time the girl is waaaay plainer than her mate.
And I have come to the conclusion is that they choose them so because k-drama audience is mainly women, so 1) they really don't give a hoot about the woman, and 2) seeing a regular, non glamorous heroine, enables them to fantasize: "if this plain girl can get the handsome guy, and make him crazy with love for her, then maybe I could too".

I'm going to have to disagree.... what about Song Hye Gyo, Ha Ji Won, Gong Hyo Jin, Kim So Hyun, Shin Min Ah, and so on. If anything, I think the male leads tend to be plainer and old too. This year was a bit of an exception with Park Bo Gum and Song Joong Ki but as a general matter, I feel like they pair up younger women with way too older and much plainer men in dramas (i.e., Uee and Lee Suh Jin in Wedding Contract). But, overall, let's be honest, both the men and women are still very attractive. And anyone who doesn't want to watch this drama because they feel Lee Sung Kyung is not pretty is both superficial and silly. I don't know about y'all, but I watch dramas for the story telling and not only because the lead is attractive.

0

Agree 100%. Most women lead are very plain - the second lead is the good looking one. And their clothing are atrocious.

0

Sorry, but I have to agree with the majority here, but I would not describe Lee Sung Kyung as "plain" at all. As an Asian person, her eyes already make her stand out as someone different.

0

Well, I would argue that the "plain-Jane" girls we find in dramas ARE pretty girls that the production team tries to style and sell as plain instead of finding a girl that actually fits the role description, but we can agree to disagree. So, yeah, I do agree that we get those characters a lot, just not truly plain actresses to portray them. You would have to list for me which actresses you find plain, rather than the exceptions you put forth. Those women are gorgeous, but you shouldn't need an actress to look as flawless as them to enjoy a romance.

To be fair, this goes for men also. I don't need so many dramas with the perfect, handsome male lead. Haha, but I may feel that way because I consider Jo Jin-woong to be one of the most appealing men in the industry.

The most common comment my brother makes about my k-drama watching is all about how every lead actress in my shows are really pretty. In the end, I don't even get how the plain Jane set-up even satisfies most women because the female lead is still often prettier than average anyway, while, in addition, being called plain throughout. Ultimately, you're made to feel like it's a big deal for them to get together with the male lead when, in reality, she's attractive enough for him anyway. It unintentionally puts forth an idea that even pretty girls are lucky to get with an attractive guy, let alone the real plain Janes. This show, while wonderful in almost every way, unfortunately doesn't completely manage to escape this flaw.

I would actually love for there to be more "beautiful" female leads. I just want them to be presented as such. That's all that really needs to change.

0

@Chandler, totally agree. I feel like the industry picks actresses that are pretty enough that you could give them a terrible hairstyle and still have them be attractive. I don't think k-actors are any more attractive than k actresses. They're about the same. Although I really don't get this flower boy dynamic so who am I to say?

Agreed,Tots! Most people will invest to drama with great (good looking) casts though sometimes the dramas don't have good story lines and quite boring - which I usually drop in the middle.

I'm new to K-drama. But the more I watch, the picky I become. And, I just realised that I invest to drama with good story lines like this one or "My Wife is Having An Affair This Week." Those stories are more relatable to real life and can touch me in so many ways.

I agree! I didn't hate her in CITT but didn't really care for her character and when I first started this drama I thought oh no, I'm going to see bits of Baek In Ha in this. But NO! I was so pleasantly surprised but I've really bought into Lee Sung Kyung being Bok Joo. A nice, sweet, cute college weightlifting student. I'm totally convinced of her character that now I feel like Baek In Ha is a totally different person. Now that speaks to some great acting skills. I can't imagine Bok Joo played by anyone else. I'm SO bummed I have to wait another whole week for ep 14!

Kyaaaaa all that cute! But I really do appreciate how Joon-hyung and Bok-ju are so honest with each other, and how they cleared the air almost immediately after Bok-ju spills that she's jealous to Joon-hyung. It's so mature that I kind of want to double-take and be like, is this really a Korean drama???, because adults that are older than them behave a lot more weirdly and immaturely than they do. But relationship goals they are, and I know they'll face the imminent danger of Dad head-on together! And come out unscathed haha.

Jae-yi and A-young: I feel like the tables have been turned on Jae-yi ever since Hwan-hee made a surprise appearance last episode. He received exactly what he did to Bok-ju--a call out of too-much-consideration from Hwan-hee just to make sure that he wasn't hurt by all her consideration (so paradoxy)--so I hope he really took how much that must suck to feel to heart. I like how A-young isn't afraid to tell him things that she would have been of before, now that she's decided to move on, and Jae-yi really needs that--someone who doesn't need to be endlessly nice all the time so that they won't do the wrong thing. I hope he sees what he's been missing out on!

Oh, these two. They are so cute. They were really cute when they were just friends, but they are the absolute cutest as a couple.

Joon Hyung. ❤️ I love how he always always always try to hold Bokjoo’s hand, like he cannot possibly not be in contact with Bokjoo when she's near. And those cute sounds he makes when he finds Bokjoo adorable. I find it funny when he’s trying to get Bokjoo to piggyback him!

and can I just say I find it adorable and hilarious that when Bokjoo doesn’t answer his calls his immediate response is that, “What if she got sick and went into the emergency room?” I guess there’s that trauma after what happened to Shi Ho but that look on his face is just awwww-worthy.

adorable, cute and hilarious - words to describe this drama and this couple.

This drama continues to be my happy pill.

Indeed we could only see the sofa scene at the beginning with the title of the episode.

Coming back to reality, I agree that an age gap of 4 years when you are 20 can be a lot...wait, I am saying that when I met my first love at 23 and he was 3 years younger than me ? Ok, back to shipping them.

They seriously remind me of couples I know, and /or have been a part of. Both in good ways and bad ways. Really realistic! And yes, very handsy and full of hormones (especially on his part lol) I also really like how playful they are with each other. I just can't imagine him with the dainty Shi-Ho and how he had any fun with her. I guess because he and BJ come from more of a best friends background, that hasn't changed much even if they are more lovey-dovey now.

I do think Joon-hyung can cross the line sometimes into not treating her exactly like a GF and too much like a buddy, but he's learning. He more than makes up for it in other ways, though. I also hope she actually does what he asks and tells him everything from now on. It would save a lot of problems. I hope to see more from her side and more of his story, but we are so close to the end I'm doubting they are going to explore it much.

About Shi-Ho, I'm glad she's changed for the better. I never hated her that much, but she's on the mend and now can get help. Seriously loved how Joon-hyung offered his therapist to her. I'm not used to people in kdramas getting professional help, instead of just suffering in silence.

I wasn't a fan of Hyung/DR, but before I didn't think she was right for him, but now I really hope she doesn't give into him. He's a nice guy, but seriously he has no common sense and comes across as offensive to me half the time when he's trying to do the "right thing". Saying he'll date her now just comes across as pity even if he doesn't mean it. JH is right, little brother more sense in love than he does.

I seriously hope dad doesn't cause problems. I think BJ will end up denying everything, and is going to end up hurting Joon-hyung's feelings because she won't admit to dating to anyone and stand up for their relationship. Well, I hope I'm wrong though haha.

I hope so too! JH's trauma definitely deserves to be satisfyingly addressed. This drama hasn't disappointed me for the past 13 episodes so I choose to believe that the writer and the whole team will justice to that part for the viewers :)

I also noticed that the story is starting to settle the conflicts that were not solved in the past episodes, Re: Shi Ho (I'm glad that she's moving on and that she and JH have sorted things out and have arrived to a closure.), Coach Choi being back, and our dear Seon Ok is back too! Now aside from JH's trauma, we're left with Hyung and Dr. Go' relationship, Samchoon-Coach Choi-Prof Yoon... And we'll just have to wait til next episode how Aboji is going to react after seeing BokJoonHyung's PDA (I'm guessing that the scene where BJ's photo suddenly fell pertains to dad's discovery of their relationship, heh) I've been seeing tweets that say the drama is being rushed, but I don't think that it is. The story is consistent and is heading towards a good path, actually.

By the way, it is my first time to comment here on DB, it's nice to have found a home for drama lovers such as this site! :) Ahhh this drama is definitely one of the best dramas of the year for me. It's even beaten the romance of DOTS, (given that I totally fell in love with the romance game of DOTS). I hope our love for the show reaches the whole WFKBJ team.

I hope they do. The relationship is adorable but really one sided at this point if we consider the amount of work JH puts into it compared to BJ to be there for her. Not her fault really, but she's just not given the chances to support him like he is there to support her. I hope that changes.

I'd like her to meet his parents, go to one of his swim meets, discuss his trauma about his mother,... I hope it's coming up! I'm glad they did seem to get a lot of things out of the way so hopefully, we get more JH in the future.

So much fluff! I am honestly glad that they just casually touch each other like 'real' couple, and didn't act like touching is something they need to feel guilty about. When Joon Hyung said that of course he's better than Jae Yi (when it comes to dating), he couldn't have proven how right he was. I seriously want to kick Jae Yi when he asked Dr. Go to start dating, like what is your problem dude? I am glad that Dr. Go put him in his place and got the words right out of my mouth, love is not charity. Which is parallel to Bok Joo's question to Joon Hyung.
Isn't it ironic that the adults are more 'dodgey' when it comes to their feelings (e.g Coach Choi's to Professor Yoon's, Dr. Go to Jae Yi waaay way back), and then there's Bok Joo and Joon Hyung trying to be completely honest with each other and actually communicate when they are supposed to be the 'young' ones. Haha.
I liked that Joon Hyung is still basically a kid, who can and is also the best boyfriend ever in KDrama land, he never loses he's playfulness, which really also fits with Bok Joo's no nonsense attitude, they couldn't have been more different, but they still find equal footing in their relationship. Loooove it!
On the other hand, I hope they don't sidetrack Joon Hyung's trauma, I wonder if writer is saving it for the last arc, but I hope it gets the due it deserves. (Crossing my fingers, please give us a closure like Ha Joon's in Sassy Go, Go)

They are doing very well so far, so I doubt they forgot to address Joong Hyun's problems. My bet is that this will be the final arc, with Bok Ju having the opportunity to support him and JH finally entering the olimpic team :D Also, he needs to clear things with his adoptive family, about his mother...I have to prepare some tissues because it's going to be emotional...
Or maybe the end will be Bok Ju entering the olimpic team after Joong Hyun does it. :D For sure there will be some conflict with Dad and how to find an equilibrium between her newfound boyfriend and her career as elite weightlifter.

There is so much attention to details as well; I was ROFL when Joong Hyun took her hairpin with some hairs in it, my favorite moment this episode ?

Can't wait for next week after seeing the preview (OMO!!), love is in the air! My exam period is coming but I only want to watch WF, haha! this is going to be the end of me ❤️

Nan Hee character is slowly growing on me and I find her adorable. I was surprised to know that she was the girl on Yoo Seung Ho cat drama.
