Age of Youth 2: Episode 12
Sometimes a change of scenery can do wonders for your mood, and there seems to be no better time for the Belle Epoque ladies to head out of town for a short getaway. With fresh air, plenty of food, and lots of uninterrupted bonding time on the agenda, the trip isn’t just an opportunity for the housemates to clear their heads—it also serves as a reminder that family isn’t limited to just the one you’re born into, but also includes the one you make with those who come through for you when it counts the most.
EPISODE 12: “I affirm myself” #standbyme
The Belle Epoque ladies are headed somewhere on the train, along with Ho-chang, Jang-hoon, and Heimdal (but…where’s Sung-min?). As Jin-myung looks around at the group, it’s clear that everyone’s in a terrible mood, save for Ho-chang, who’s excitedly fiddling around with his camera.
Jin-myung gets a text from boyfriend Jae-wan that reads, “Apple picking?” Ha, that’s where they’re going? He follows up with two more questions: “All of a sudden? Do you like those kinds of things?”
In a flashback, we see that the trip was Jin-myung’s idea, but no one else wanted to go: Ye-eun said she’s allergic to sunlight; Eun complained about bugs; Eun-jae gave a few excuses, then said she wasn’t in the mood to go home (ah, so they’re heading to her family orchard.) Ji-won just stared blankly at the suggestion.
Back in the present, Jin-myung writes back to Jae-wan that it’s not something she likes, but something that’s needed right now. When Jae-wan asks if she’s the one who needs it, Jin-myung looks at Ji-won and thinks to herself, “No. Ji-won.”
In another flashback, Jin-myung gathered the girls to explain that Ji-won needed this trip, telling them, “She’s acting like nothing’s wrong on the outside, but something’s strange.”
She told the girls of seeing Ji-won at a park that past Sunday, where she watched a group of fourth graders play outside. Ji-won had marveled at how young these kids looked, telling Jin-myung: “Even fourth graders are still babies. Third graders are even more like babies.”
She’d continued, “Whatever I did wrong, I was a baby then, right? I probably didn’t even know what I was doing back then, right? Let’s say one of those kids over there did something wrong. Could you say that kid is bad? No, you can’t, right?” As she looked to Jin-myung for reassurance, Jin-myung told her she was right.
When Jin-myung told her housemates about this conversation, Eun-jae agreed that Ji-won seemed strange, but pointed out that apple picking is actually hard work—not so much a healing activity. At that, Jin-myung admitted that something else happened, too.
In another flashback within the flashback, Jang-hoon did pushups outside of the Belle Epoque while Heimdal mocked his physique. When Jang-hoon showed off his bicep to Heimdal in response, Heimdal one-upped him by pulling up his shirt.
The two boys ended up taking off their shirts completely to compare who’s in better shape. At that point, Jang-hoon was actually more ripped than Heimdal, so Heimdal insisted on comparing leg muscles instead.
Ji-won and Jin-myung had returned home to this scene—but despite the two half-naked men in front of her, Ji-won had just walked by with a simple “Hello,” leaving Jin-myung stunned.
When Jin-myung relayed Ji-won’s non-reaction back to the girls, everyone quickly agreed that something was definitely up, and the apple picking trip was on.
In the present, Jin-myung texts back to Jae-wan that she thinks the trip is something that everyone needs right now. She then puts her phone away to try to start a conversation with her sullen companions.
When she suggests that someone tell a funny story, Ho-chang’s the only one who responds. He starts talking about a Polish mathematician, but Ye-eun crankily tells him to stop, and the group falls silent again.
So Jin-myung tries to lighten the mood herself, telling everyone about a joke that her boss had tried to make at lunch. She awkwardly laughs at her story, but others clearly don’t find it funny at all…except for Ho-chang, who starts cracking up a few beats later.
They finally reach their destination, and Ho-chang excitedly suggests they take a group picture in front of Eun-jae’s place. Jin-myung enthusiastically agrees, and everyone else reluctantly shuffles into place.
The resulting photo is awkward but hilarious: All the Belle Epoque ladies look like they’d rather be anywhere else, with Jin-myung being the only one forcing a smile. Jang-hoon’s looking over at Eun, Heimdal gives his best idol pose, and Ho-chang offers a cheesy smile.
Eun-jae’s mom and stepdad come out to greet the crew. As Eun-jae’s mom gives her daughter a once-over, she comments that Eun-jae’s face has changed (hee, that doesn’t get old). Mom then snaps into action, telling the group to get ready to work.
The boys help Eun-jae’s stepdad carry over apple crates to the orchards, and Heimdal and Jang-hoon try to outdo one another on how many crates they can carry at once. The ladies get an apple-picking lesson from Eun-jae’s mom, then everyone gets to work.
As they’re picking apples, Eun-jae suddenly stops and deflates. When Jin-myung asks her what’s wrong, Eun-jae, with tears streaming down her face, replies: “That bird… that bird that’s chirping. A lark.” Before Jin-myung can ask a follow-up question, Eun-jae just walks away, leaving Jin-myung befuddled.
Jin-myung remembers the night Eun-jae came home soaking wet, just after Jong-yeol crushed her heart. Eun-jae had disappeared into her room without a word and spent the whole night with the covers over her head.
When Jin-myung woke up the next morning, Eun-jae wasn’t in bed—instead, Jin-myung found her in the bathroom, diligently cleaning her stuffed monkey with a toothbrush. Eun-jae said her wet clothes had stained the doll, so she wanted to wash it quickly to make sure the stain didn’t stick. “But it’s too late. It’s not coming off,” she said.
Later, Jin-myung found Eun-jae in the kitchen making what looked to be about a hundred sandwiches, an assembly line of ingredients set up in front of her. Eun-jae said she couldn’t sleep, and the next morning, all the girls diligently ate the sandwiches she made.
The next time Jin-myung woke up, Eun-jae’s bed was empty again. Seeing Eun-jae’s slippers by the entryway, Jin-myung headed outside, where she looked up and saw Eun-jae sitting up on the roof, her legs dangling over the edge.
Back in the present, Eun-jae’s mom interrupts Jin-myung’s daydreaming to chide her for not picking apples correctly. Jin-myung tries to say something about Eun-jae, but Eun-jae’s mom points to Eun-jae and says that she’s doing just fine.
As the morning stretches on, Heimdal stops to check in on Jin-myung. Ye-eun seems to be eating more apples than she’s picking and shoos Ho-chang away when he tries to take a break from moving heavy crates. Jang-hoon and Eun steal glances at one another when they think the other’s not looking.
Heimdal and Jang-hoon race to see who can get the crates back the fastest, then argue over who’s going to push the cart full of apples. They eventually tip over the cart, spilling apples all over the ground, but when Ho-chang tries to yell for Eun-jae’s mom, the other two boys pile onto him to keep him quiet.
Jin-myung makes the rounds around the orchard, keeping a close eye on her housemates. Ji-won notices Jin-myung watching her and asks, “What?” Jin-myung hesitates, unsure of what to say, but before she can answer, Eun-jae’s mom calls out that it’s time to eat.
As the crew digs into their catered lunch, Ye-eun remarks that she was expecting a more rustic experience. Jin-myung agrees, saying things aren’t like the old TV show Country Diaries at all. When Eun-jae’s stepdad expresses surprise that she knows of the show, Eun-jae’s mom makes a quip about Jin-myung’s age.
Instead of eating, Jin-myung keenly observes everyone around her, looking worriedly at Eun-jae (whose depressed demeanor goes unnoticed by her parents) and Ji-won. Jin-myung’s the only one who notices Eun ignoring Jang-hoon’s request for some tissue and hands Jang-hoon the roll herself.
Ye-eun gets up from lunch first without eating much, saying she’s full from eating too many apples. This raises another flag for Jin-myung, and she thinks back to the train ride this morning when Ye-eun fed all her kimbap to Ho-chang instead of eating it herself.
In the present, Jin-myung watches Ye-eun walk away, only to get called out again by Eun-jae’s mom for eating so slowly. Mom thinks that Jin-myung’s pretty oblivious, but as Jin-myung watches Eun-jae skulk away from the group, she mutters that it’s not true.
After lunch, the gang takes a break, napping or playing with their gadgets, but Jin-myung notices that Eun-jae’s missing. She sets off to look for her and finds her sitting off the side of a trail, looking out into the distance.
Jin-myung asks Eun-jae what she’s looking at. Eun-jae answers, “The wind. If you look at the tree over there, you can see the wind passing by.” As Jin-myung takes a seat next to her, Eun-jae continues, “The wind is coming now.” Jin-myung closes her eyes.
The two sit for a bit, feeling the breeze on their faces. Eun-jae looks cheerier as she tells Jin-myung that she must have had a hard time because of her. Jin-myung just smiles at her housemate, and soon, they’re called back to work.
Back at the orchard, Jin-myung sees Ye-eun with her hand on her stomach and asks if her stomach’s hurting. Ye-eun brushes off the concern, but she lets out a shaky breath once Jin-myung passes by.
Eun-jae’s mom heads inside the house for some rest, but she stops at the door in shock when she finds Ye-eun in the kitchen, stuffing her face with rice. LOL. After Mom gets over her initial surprise, she waves off Ye-eun’s attempt to explain, telling her she didn’t eat enough at lunch.
After plopping down on the couch, Mom asks Ye-eun if Ho-chang’s her boyfriend. When Ye-eun says he is, Mom smiles and says she understands that Ye-eun might not want to eat so much in front of her boyfriend. “I’ll keep it a secret,” she says. “In exchange, you have to keep it a secret that I’m resting here like this, okay?”
But when Ye-eun stands frozen in the kitchen, rice scooper in hand, Mom gets right back up to make Ye-eun some yummy-looking bibimbap, telling her that plain rice isn’t appetizing. Mom starts eating with gusto and urges Ye-eun to dig in, but Ye-eun just stares back at Eun-jae’s mom, as if she’s never seen a mom act this way before.
Flashback to the most recent meal Ye-eun had with her own mom. After taking a tiny, prim bite of her food, Ye-eun’s mom watched Ye-eun disapprovingly as she ate her pasta, then cleared her throat. At that, Ye-eun stopped eating.
Mom mentioned that she heard about Ye-eun’s friend Yoo-kyung sending the malicious texts, then went on a rant against Yoo-kyung, telling Ye-eun that she seemed strange from the beginning. She then did what she does best and blamed Ye-eun for making the wrong kind of friends. Ugh.
Later, Ye-eun met up with Ho-chang and pigged out on ddukbokki. She froze in horror when she realized she cleared the entire plate, then yelled at Ho-chang for not stopping her. Ho-chang leaned in sweetly to tell her she’s really skinny, but Ye-eun said he’d be shocked if he knew how much she weighed. Later at home, Ye-eun worked out obsessively, got on the scale, then went right back to her workout when the numbers weren’t what she wanted.
Back in the present, Eun-jae’s mom tells Ye-eun to eat up, and smiling, she does.
Not seeing Ye-eun around the orchard, Jin-myung starts to look for her. After catching a glimpse of a figure in yellow prone on the ground, Jin-myung gasps in horror, thinking it’s Ye-eun. She runs over, tripping in her haste to get to her, but when she reaches the figure, it turns out to be a scarecrow. Womp womp.
When Eun-jae’s mom and Ye-eun rejoin everyone, Eun-jae nags her mom for shirking work. Mom blames her bad back and whines that Eun-jae’s singling her out. She points to Jin-myung wandering back: “Look, that person’s coming back after goofing off, too.” Ha!
As the group takes a short break, Ye-eun feels a drop on her face and is horrified when Eun-jae tells her a cicada just peed on her. Eun mentions that cicadas only live for about a week, and Eun-jae confirms, saying they live as nymphs for seven years, but as cicadas for only seven days.
When Eun says she feels sorry for the cicadas, Ye-eun says they must cry so loudly because they think it’s unfair, too. But Jin-myung sees it differently, wondering if nymphs live their lives in order to become cicadas: “Maybe they’re happier during the time they live as nymphs…cicadas may be just nymphs in their later years.”
Her words seem to strike a chord with Heimdal, who gazes at Jin-myung thoughtfully.
With their day of work finally complete, the girls head into the house to wash up. Just before she heads inside, Eun stops short, having remembered something, and freaks out to herself. Jin-myung asks her what’s wrong, but Eun says it’s nothing.
Meanwhile, the boys sprawl out in the front yard, tired from the manual labor. Heimdal seems comfortable with this type of work, and when Jang-hoon asks if he’s from the countryside, Heimdal says he’s from Inchon. He adds that he lived there until the ninth grade, when he moved to Seoul to train.
Suddenly, the boys hear Ye-eun exclaiming, “It’s cold!” and they perk right up. HA, it turns out they can hear every word the girls are saying as they shower (and since the girls are all in there together, the conversation does sound a bit racy).
Though the three do their best to pretend they don’t hear what they hear, they can’t tear their eyes away from the door leading to the bathroom. That’s when Eun-jae’s stepdad calls out to them to show them to another bathroom, and the boys jump up, looking incredibly guilty.
Later, Eun-jae’s mom leads Jin-myung away for a private chat while everyone sets up for dinner. She asks Jin-myung if something’s happened to Eun-jae, then guesses that Jin-myung must have thought she wasn’t an attentive mom.
Without thinking, Jin-myung answers, “Yes,” but then backtracks to say that Eun-jae’s mom seemed to not notice Eun-jae’s distress at all. Mom explains that Eun-jae’s been the same since she was young—if you tell her not to cry, she just cries more, so it’s better to ignore her.
Mom asks Jin-myung again if there’s something going on with Eun-jae. Jin-myung tells her to ask Eun-jae later, but Eun-jae’s mom smiles and says that she probably won’t tell her.
The group sits down for dinner, but this time, Eun is missing. She’s still inside the house, looking nervous about something, and doesn’t move to come outside even as the girls call out her name.
Eun thinks back to when she ran into Jang-hoon on her way out of Belle Epoque, on the morning after she’d told him she missed him. Eun had paused in front of him, looking expectant, but to her dismay, Jang-hoon couldn’t even look at her and instead continued working on his chair.
In the present, Eun is forced to come outside for dinner when Jin-myung comes looking for her. As she heads out, we see why she was so reluctant to go outside—she’s wearing a dress, which she self-consciously tugs at, then tries to cover up with her sweater.
When she appears outside, Jang-hoon can’t stop staring at her, only looking away when Eun’s eyes meet his. Ye-eun comments that the dress looks good, and Eun-jae’s mom explains that she let Eun borrow it because she didn’t bring a change of clothes.
Jin-myung notices Eun and Jang-hoon stealing glances at each other, then remembers a time when she and Eun were hanging their laundry on the roof. Jang-hoon had been there too, and when Jin-myung made an off-hand comment about the length of Eun’s pants, Eun had lost her temper, then run away.
It’s only then that Jin-myung puts two and two together, and her mouth drops open as she looks back and forth between Eun and Jang-hoon, all the weirdness between the two now making sense. Jin-myung hides a smile, then tells Eun to eat up.
On their walk after dinner, Ye-eun makes note of Ho-chang’s glasses. Ho-chang quickly says he’ll wear his contacts tomorrow, but Ye-eun just tells him to keep wearing his glasses. She adds that he should wear the kind of pants he likes too, then apologizes, telling him she acted badly.
But when an excited Ho-chang asks if he can go back to his old hairstyle, Ye-eun immediately says no, hee. She then pulls him closer, and the two happily gaze at the stars.
Eun sits outside the house, trying unsuccessfully to light a mosquito repellant. When Jang-hoon joins her but doesn’t say anything, Eun goes on the defensive: “What? I know it doesn’t suit me. It’s not like I wore this because I wanted to.”
Jang-hoon lights the repellent for her, then says, “It suits you.” He sits down at a safe distance from her, and with his back toward her, he adds, “You’re pretty, wearing a skirt.”
Eun grumps at him to stop, convinced he’s lying, but Jang-hoon retorts that he’s being sincere. “Then why don’t you like me?” asks Eun. “I even told you that I missed you.”
Still not looking at her, Jang-hoon says he’s going to the military. When Eun says she knows, he turns around in surprise, then asks if she’s okay with that. Eun replies that it’s not like he’s being deployed, then grumbles that he’s using his enlistment as an excuse.
Jang-hoon says it’s not an excuse: “I like you, too. I like you, but if I have to enlist as soon as we start dating, I can’t ask you to wait for me. But I can’t not ask you to wait, either.” Awwwww.
When Eun asks what he wants to do, he wonders if she’ll wait for him if he asked her to. She quickly says she won’t—why would she, when he hasn’t even asked? Jang-hoon asks what her answer would be if he did ask her, and she tells him, “Try it.”
Taking a breath, he asks her to wait, telling her he’ll do well when he gets back. Eun cracks a tiny smile, but tells him that she’ll think about it. She then runs away laughing, leading Jang-hoon on an adorable chase.
Jin-myung watches the two with a smile, then accepts some freshly picked fruit from Heimdal when he comes out to join her. He seems knowledgeable about farming—he tells Jin-myung that his parents are not only farmers but beekeepers and innkeepers too, and promises to send Jin-myung some honey.
Looking surprised, Jin-myung asks if this means Heimdal is going home. He confirms it, then jokingly says that she must be relieved. When she asks why he changed his mind, he says it’s just because, but then says that he realized today that he didn’t hate working outside.
He continues that before, the whole situation felt unfair—it seemed like his seven years of hard work amounted to nothing, and by quitting, it was as if he was acknowledging his failure. He adds that he was embarrassed and sorry, since he told everyone he was going to be a celebrity.
“But a nymph doesn’t live to be a cicada, right?” he asks, echoing Jin-myung’s words from earlier. “A nymph would have been happy being a nymph. If I think about it now, I had a lot of fun during those seven years. It might be a mental victory, but I learned a lot, too.”
Smiling, Jin-myung asks who said those words about the nymph. Aghast, Heimdal reminds her that it was her, and ha, Jin-myung’s all, “I did?” She laughs as he gets angry for being so emotional about something she doesn’t even remember saying, and then the two join the rest of the group as they gather for a late-night snack.
Aww, everyone looks so much happier than they did this morning on the train, as they trade jokes, tell scary stories, and play games. Eun and Jang-hoon grab at each other when Eun-jae tells a scary story (then quickly let go, looking awkward but giddy). Even Ji-won seems more like herself as she smiles and joins in the conversation.
As the girls are settling in for bed, Jae-wan texts Jin-myung to ask if everything’s going okay. Looking around at her housemates, Jin-myung writes back that everything’s fine, and that she must have been worried for nothing.
The next morning, Jin-myung wakes up alone. She startles when she sees how late it is, then sheepishly joins everyone else in the kitchen for breakfast. When her housemates say they tried to wake her up but couldn’t, Eun-jae’s mom gets in another pointed remark about Jin-myung not being as meticulous as she first seemed.
Jin-myung asks after Ji-won, who’s not at the table, and Stepdad says she left the house early. Jang-hoon says they should give her a call, but Ye-eun says that Ji-won forgot her phone at home.
And indeed, Ji-won’s phone is on her desk back at Belle Epoque, where it rings with a call from Sung-min. When the call goes unanswered, we see that it’s his ninth missed call.
Jin-myung gets up without eating, telling the group that she has no appetite. The rest of the girls look unsettled as Jin-myung heads outside, and not too long after that, Ye-eun gets up too, followed quickly by Eun and Eun-jae.
After the girls catch up to Jin-myung, the four walk along, chatting and making small talk. Jin-myung thinks to herself how they’re acting like everything is fine: “As if there’s nothing wrong. Truthfully, I wanted to shout. Truthfully, I wanted to run.”
They pass by a sign that warns against swimming or going in the water due to drowning accidents, and Jin-myung continues, “If I shouted, I thought I’d be found out. If I ran, I thought I’d be chased. It felt like the misery that had been hiding like the ‘it’ in the game of tag would come grab us by the ankles. So we had no choice but to walk slowly, using all of the strength we had.”
As a group of children play on a field, a little girl sees a figure crumpled in front of the school and screams that it’s a person. The kids all run toward the figure, and ack, it’s Ji-won. The kids wonder if she’s dead, but when Ji-won starts to stir, pulling herself upright, they scream and scatter in fear.
The children go running outside the school, where they run into the housemates and tell them about the “body” that they just saw. That gets the girls running toward the school, and when they arrive, they see Ji-won stumbling toward them, rubbing her head.
Ji-won looks glad to see her housemates, and she tells them that she passed out for a minute. But everyone else looks incredibly panicked—Jin-myung even crumples to the ground from the stress—and Ji-won looks surprised at her housemates’ reactions.
Ye-eun grabs Ji-won in a tight hug, while Eun-jae asks her where she’s been, adding that they’ve been worried sick. Ji-won apologizes and says, “I must have been passed out for a long time.”
Ji-won explains to her housemates what happened after she woke up early that morning: She’d headed outside for a walk, then stumbled upon the school building.
As she walked past the colorful building, looking into the windows, a series of images had flashed before her: a white curtain blowing at a window, sculptures from art class, her and Hyo-jin as kids, and the pretty shoes.
In the present, Ji-won says that’s when she fainted. “And, I remembered,” she adds. Looking around at her housemates, Ji-won says, “I didn’t lie.”
On the train ride back home, Ji-won’s the only one who doesn’t fall asleep, as she stares contemplatively out the window.
The next thing we see is a flummoxed Sung-min talking to Eun-jae’s mom, unable to believe that everyone had left earlier that day. Eun-jae’s mom asks if Sung-min came up to work too, then asks him what he’s brought. Sung-min, holding nine takeout bags, tells her it’s chicken.
The girls are put under hypnosis and asked about their past lives. Jin-myung describes a busy marketplace full of Korean independence fighters waving flags. She’s there too, shouting something, and the therapist writes down the guess that she’s Yoo Gwan-soon, a famous freedom fighter. Then suddenly Jin-myung barks in Japanese, “Kill the Korean!” (The hypnotist immediately scratches out Yoo’s name, ha.) (This gives new meaning to the adage Selling out your country in a past life to explain your current life’s suffering.)
Eun-jae was the queen of Joseon, and as her bedding is laid out, a court lady tells her that the king has gone to visit a water maid. At that, Eun-jae’s eyes snap open and she screams, “What?!” Shades of Jang Ok-jung?
Ye-eun happens to be that water maid, as she smiles and says that the king is visiting her room. (Hee, she’s Dong-yi! Fyi, Han Seung-yeon played that role in Jang Ok-jung, Live By Love.) We flash back to Eun-jae screaming, and Ye-eun cowers.
Eun’s on the battlefield, looking for a baby to return to his father. She gasps in horror when the father tosses the baby aside, and cries out to the baby. (Turns out her nickname “General Jo” is literally true—she’s general Jo Ja-ryong from the Three Kingdoms period, aka Zhao Yun.)
Ji-won describes a pleasant night and says they’re on a dangerous path somewhere. She says she wants to say something… then whinnies and blows air through her mouth, because she’s a horse.
Thank goodness for Jin-myung, our resident housemom—if it weren’t for her, where would our girls be? While it’s true that everyone’s going through a lot in their personal lives (including, you know, recovering from being attacked in their own home), I’m so glad that at least Jin-myung was perceptive enough to notice that Ji-won wasn’t as okay as she pretended to be. I really enjoyed that the majority of this episode’s storyline was told from Jin-myung’s vantage point—it was fun to get a glimpse into her rational and measured personality, and seeing her observe, take notes on others, then add all that up in her head to draw her conclusions. While there were instances when Jin-myung seemed to worry over nothing, most of the time, we saw that Jin-myung’s sense is spot-on (despite what Eun-jae’s mom happens to believe, heh.)
I thought it was a refreshing change of pace for our characters to spend some time away from the Belle Epoque—after that traumatic last episode, even I needed a break from that house. In addition to forcing them out of their daily routines, the trip also provided the extra bonus of making most of our main characters all spend time together, with nowhere else to go. Forced proximity in an unfamiliar environment—there’s nothing better to help you see something new about yourself (or someone else you’re with), or to spur you to do something you wouldn’t otherwise.
I was so proud of Eun for working up the courage (again!) to confront Jang-hoon about his non-reaction to her confession—thanks to her stepping up, it looks like we’ll be treated to an actual romance in the last two episodes, which is nothing but good news. I also thought Eun-jae’s mom was well-used here—I was never her biggest fan, but we saw a different motherly side to her than we’ve seen before. I particularly loved the part when she showed Ye-eun what it looks like to have a positive relationship with food—that look of wonder Ye-eun gave her as she was eating was just so hopeful and sad all at once, and I hope it’s the beginning of Ye-eun addressing her issues with food, and of course, her own mom.
Just like last episode, it was really tough to watch Ji-won be a shadow of herself for most of this hour. After all, who is Song Ji-won if not the wacky, inappropriate housemate who can liven up any atmosphere? I’m relieved that she’s recovered some of her memories about what happened with Hyo-jin, as hopefully, this will help her recover and return to her normal self—even if that may be a slightly different version than what we’ve known in the past.
I certainly don’t like that she continues to have these fainting spells (I’m hoping they’re psychological and nothing else), but what I’m even more unhappy about is the lack of Sung-min this hour. I mean, would it have so hard to bring Sung-min along on the apple-picking trip? Imagine the shenanigans that could have ensued! More seriously, think of the support he could be providing her during this difficult time! I know we only have one more week to go, but I’m still keeping the faith that we’ll get some satisfactory progress between Ji-won and Sung-min. I’m not even hoping for much here, but I’m hoping for something. Don’t disappoint me, show!
