Angel’s Last Mission: Love: Episodes 19-20

What a week it’s been for our couple. They’ve been through hell and back (er, figuratively), and now they’re in a place where they can finally let themselves be happy. It’d be a whole lot easier, however, if everyone around them wasn’t dead set on tearing them apart.

 
EPISODES 19-20 RECAP

After a long night of waiting, Yeon-seo tells Dan to promise never to leave her again. He takes it one step further by saying that he loves her and pulling her in for a kiss. And another, and another.

The next day, Yeon-seo eagerly presses her call button, growing anxious as the seconds tick by and Dan doesn’t show. She throws the door open to see him about to knock, and she chides him for being over a minute late.

She then teases him by saying, “Do you remember what happened last night?” She leans in, making him gulp and shut his eyes, only to boop his nose and run away. He chases her down the stairs to get his kiss and…

“Dan?” At the sound of Chief Jung’s voice, the couple jump away from each other. They try to play it cool, but Jung can see right through them. Still, she plays along and says that Yeon-seo’s “friend” better be careful with her man, ha.

As Dan drops Yeon-seo off at Fantasia, she asks him what he did while he was away — he wouldn’t happen to have another woman, would he? He assures her that that’s not the case and sends her on her way.

On the way out, he crosses paths with Kang-woo and remembers the end of their conversation from last night. He’d asked how Kang-woo knew of the angels’ punishments, and Kang-woo had answered that there had been an angel who’d thought he was a special case, just like Dan.

He warned Dan that a happy ending was impossible and that it was better for him to disappear. However, Dan boldly stated that he wasn’t going to be a coward. “I want Yeon-seo to know who I am,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if I’m human or not, if I’m dead or alive. I want her to know my present and my past and still love me.”

Kang-woo urged him to go ahead and reveal it all, positive that she would never accept him. His only condition was for Dan to wait until after the final “Giselle” auditions. Dan had a nagging feeling just then that Kang-woo could be that angel, but he shook it off and left.

Meanwhile, in the present, Hoo has that same feeling. He goes to the Buddhist temple to check out Kang-woo’s locker, and he’s shocked to find the angels’ signature handkerchief inside.

Luna’s sneaky minion Black Cap gets ahold of Mr. Park’s phone while he’s not looking and sets up a wiretap. This allows him to hear Park’s conversation with Chief Jung, who wants to meet up tomorrow.

At the church, Kang-woo approaches Hoo to give a half-hearted warning that his junior angel is giving up his mission. He turns to leave, but Hoo makes him stop short by bringing up the infamous angel who became human.

The two share a drink outside, quoting verses (which, to Kang-woo’s annoyance, never left his memory). “You’ve been through a lot,” Hoo says, genuinely sympathetic. “Getting abandoned in this world, unable to really live or die.”

Still, Hoo doesn’t understand why Kang-woo is so angry when he’s already completed his personal mission of getting Yeon-seo on stage. Kang-woo stares at his now ringless finger, remembering the way Yeon-seo had looked at him during her “Giselle” routine.

Hoo sighs, seeing that Kang-woo must have a newfound desire to live, even though he’s always considered living to be hell. “I want to break free from that hell now,” Kang-woo says darkly, downing one last drink before walking away.

Back at the estate, Dan tries to practice how he’s going to tell Yeon-seo that he was Sung-woo and that he’s now an angel. And he’s failing miserably. He’s then interrupted by a phone call from Yeon-seo — her number now labeled “Madam Yeon-seo,” lol.

Dan meets Yeon-seo out in the garden, curious as to what’s keeping her up this late. Her face serious, she asks, “Which of the two is it? You’re married or you have a terminal illness?” He blinks, confused, and she explains that his odd behavior on the island only points to those two reasons. He laughs at that and reiterates that she’s the only one for him — his first and his last. She asks what he was doing while he was gone, then, and he hesitates.

He doesn’t want to bother her with something so trivial until her big audition is over. She frowns and scooches over, taking his hands. She wants him to understand that he’s most important to her, so nothing about him is trivial. Still nervous, he starts small by revealing he went to see his father. He wanted to know why Dad treated him so badly, why he couldn’t just love him. He stops there, before he gets emotional, and jokes that it’s a boring story.

The saddened Yeon-seo brings him into a hug, ignoring his protests that he’s okay. “You and me,” she says, “we’re all alone in this world. You’ve been through a lot, my Dan.” And as Dan’s protesting turns to crying, Yeon-seo sweetly pats his back.

Your story is important

 

The next day at practice, Kang-woo overhears the dancers talking about private meetings with Luna. He immediately confronts Luna about this, knowing she’s bribing them for votes. However, she isn’t the least bit scared since there’s no way he can prove it.

Mr. Park meets Chief Jung in an abandoned building, where she presents his former colleague Moon Ji-woong. She says that Mr. Moon is going to testify for the broken stagelight three years ago, for it was him who loosened the light. He didn’t want to harm Yeon-seo, but he was desperate for the money at the time.

Though they’re unsure of who the actual mastermind is, Jung plans to go to the police with Yeon-seo soon. Unfortunately, their entire conversation is being recorded by Black Cap and sent over to Luna, who’s got that evil glint in her eye again.

With final auditions being tomorrow, it’s a long night of practicing for Yeon-seo. However, Dan gets so lost in her interpretation of Giselle’s death that he impulsively grabs her hands. D’aww, stop.

Yeon-seo insists on practicing even later into the night, not quite able to perfect Giselle’s betrayal after being deceived. She gives in to a break, though, when a persistent Dan offers to take her anywhere she wants. What she wants, she beams, is to see the stars with him.

As the two go on a midnight stroll, Dan notices Yeon-seo trying to hold his hand. He does it for her, interlocking their fingers, and they both smile to themselves. “He must’ve had a reason,” Dan muses, referring to Giselle’s lover Albrecht and how he lied about his previous engagement.

He speculates that Albrecht couldn’t help falling in love with Giselle and that, once he was in too deep, he was afraid to tell the truth. Yeon-seo argues that if Albrecht was afraid, there wasn’t enough trust on his part — he should’ve trusted Giselle’s love for him. Suddenly inspired, she drags him back home to practice.

The mistake of Albrecht

 

While waiting outside, Dan is ambushed by Hoo. Dan isn’t in the mood for his sunbae’s lectures, but Hoo insists that it’s important: Kang-woo sincerely cares for Yeon-seo, and not just as Seol-hee’s look-alike.

Hoo urges Dan to use this chance to finish his mission. After all, does Dan really want Yeon-seo to see him disappear? Dan’s face falls as Hoo grasps his hands and continues that their only way for a happy ending is for Kang-woo to stay with Yeon-seo and for Dan to return to heaven.

“There has to be a way,” Dan says. “If a human can become an angel, then there has to be a way for an angel to become a human.” This only frustrates Hoo further, but Dan snaps that he’ll deal with the consequences. With that, he storms off.

The following day — the day of the auditions — Yeon-seo asks to borrow Dan’s handkerchief for good luck one last time. Dan stares at the handkerchief, remembering when Hoo first gave it to him and warned him never to lose it. He then tells Yeon-seo to keep it — he won’t need it since he’ll always be with her.

While Dan joins the audience in the theater, Yeon-seo and the other dancers prepare in the dressing room. Kang-woo comes in to give them a pep talk, and he notices Nina’s empty chair, as well the handkerchief tied around Yeon-seo’s wrist. He makes sure to tell Yeon-seo to focus on her interpretation today.

Kang-woo leaves, and Yeon-seo catches dancer Jung-eun sneaking pain pills. To Jung-eun’s annoyance, Yeon-seo correctly guesses that she overworked herself after giving birth. Yeon-seo advises her to take care of her health first and bow out of the audition, but Jung-eun firmly states that she can’t give up.

The auditions commence, the audience consisting of fellow dancers and board members, with Dan and Nina’s instructor Elena hanging in the back. All the performing dancers do well, Jung-eun included, but no one really wows the crowd. Then it’s Nina’s turn, and boy, does she turn heads when she arrives late, stony-faced.

Nina’s portrayal of Giselle is much more theatrical than her last try, and we see that she achieved this by practicing with Elena in a graveyard. (Oy, that’s… dark.) She acts out going mad and dying, much passion in her movements, and it earns a standing ovation. Even Kang-woo stands to clap, pleasantly surprised.

Nina passes Yeon-seo backstage, where Yeon-seo sincerely says that she did a great job. Nina coldly replies, “I didn’t do it to gain your approval. Do well yourself.” Disheartened, Yeon-seo nervously steps onstage for her turn.

She then sees Dan standing in the back, smiling, and caresses her handkerchief, putting her at ease. She falls into her routine, sticking with the sad death rather than the resentful one. And while the audience is captivated by her emotional performance, she and Dan are thinking about their parallels to “Giselle.”

Dan: She feels resentment. Not towards him, but towards herself.
Yeon-seo: Was my love not enough?
Dan: It’s not like that.
Yeon-seo: He probably couldn’t tell me because he didn’t trust me.
Dan: No, I want to tell you. You, more than anyone. I want to tell you who and what I am. But… can I do that?

Yeon-seo as Giselle collapses to the floor, dying of heartbreak, and she too receives a standing ovation. And despite her going against his critique, Kang-woo looks incredibly moved. Afterwards, as everyone anonymously votes, Dan secretly gives Yeon-seo’s hand a tight squeeze before returning to his seat. The results come out to a tie between Yeon-seo and Nina, but Director Choi notices that one person failed to vote.

That one person is Jung-eun, who left early for not feeling well. Choi smirks and suggests they call to get her vote (knowing very well that Jung-eun was a dancer they bribed). Kang-woo gets Jung-eun on the phone, and to everyone’s surprise, she declares that she liked Yeon-seo the best. And that’s that — Yeon-seo is officially Giselle.

Choi throws a fit in her office, cursing the dancers. Uncle Kim catches on that his wife bribed them, and horrified, he asks how far she’ll go to make Nina the star. Choi seethes that she’s been too nice all this time (HA, right) and that she’ll have to step up her game.

Meanwhile, Luna finds Nina crying in the bathroom muttering how she wished Yeon-seo was dead. It reminds Luna of three years ago, when Nina had been jealous of Yeon-seo getting the “Swan Lake” lead and had wished she was gone then too.

Kang-woo stops Yeon-seo to congratulate her, as well as to ask her out to dinner; he’d like to explain his story and his feelings for her. She tries to decline, but he disregards this and says that he’ll be waiting at the nearby restaurant tonight.

Yeon-seo then goes out to find Dan, who’s so happy that he attack-hugs her, hee. Though she has to meet Chief Jung tonight, he urges her to go somewhere with him first. He wants to go to the park where they met to finally reveal his secrets.

On the way to the park, Yeon-seo admits that Kang-woo asked her to dinner and that she worries he could still be waiting. Dan spazzes out, huffing that she shouldn’t give him the time of day, and she gets the biggest grin on her face.

“Are you jealous?” she asks. “You like me that much?” He nods yes, and she can barely contain her happiness. Suddenly, there’s a boom of thunder, making Dan freeze. Yeon-seo notices this and asks if he has some kind of trauma associated with storms, since he’s run away every time it rained.

Or, she jokes, is it because he’ll turn into a merman or something? He hesitantly asks what she would do if the latter were true, and she answers that she’d pray for him to return to himself. He smiles, but the intensifying thunder only worsens his nerves.

What if I turn into something else?

 

He turns to leave, wanting to buy them an umbrella, but she panics and grabs his hand, insisting on going together. Seeing the fear in her eyes, he assures her that he’s not running away anymore. He leaves her there, promising to be right back.

As Yeon-seo waits, she gets this overwhelming feeling that she’ll always be looking for Dan, even in the future, as if she’s destined to miss him terribly forever. She then sees him across the street, waving at her, and she waves back, relieved. Dan then runs into some kids playing and helps them up, just as a truck blocks his view of Yeon-seo. And when the truck passes, Yeon-seo is gone. Oh no…

We see a worried Chief Jung waiting for Yeon-seo at the police station, and then we see an ambulance crew pulling a body out of the river — Moon Ji-woong. (OH NO.) And following Luna’s orders, Black Cap uses Yeon-seo’s phone to send a text to Kang-woo that makes her sound suicidal, thus luring him out. Luna tells Black Cap to go ahead and finish the job, looking forward to Kang-woo witnessing his precious ballerina’s end.

Black Cap currently has Yeon-seo on the roof of the theater, blindfolded and tied to a pole right by the ledge. After getting the text, Kang-woo runs over and frantically looks around until he spots her up above. He calls 911 and hurries into the building.

Back on the ledge, Yeon-seo urges Black Cap to do the smart thing by letting her go and walking away. She breathes a sigh of relief when he removes her blindfold and starts to untie her, telling him he’s making the right choice. “I’m not saving you,” Black Cap says. “No one commits suicide with their hands tied and eyes covered.”

Before Yeon-seo has time to react, Black Cap pushes her off the roof. She goes hurtling down, when with a strike of lightning, Dan appears in the sky in all his winged glory. She reaches out to him, and he easily catches her and sets her on the ground. It’s only then that she fully registers what’s she’s staring at.

   
COMMENTS

Wow… The lengths these people go to to keep Yeon-seo off the stage. It’s ridiculous, actually, the more I think about it. I know that Nina wouldn’t actually do anything to harm Yeon-seo, but after this episode, she is sort of at fault for all the bad things that have happened. Or, at least, she’s at the center of it. Her whole family is doing shady business for her, from her mom to her sister, and even to her softie of a dad. It’s that sisterly bond between Nina and Luna, however, that seems to be stirring the most trouble. From what we know, Luna never had a life of her own, as she was always taking care of her sister. With that being her only dedication, and with her home and work life demanding so much, that had to mess with her mind a bit. And that weird, whispery background music that always follows her highlights that. Then again, is it background music? I did read several comments theorizing that she was possessed or influenced by some kind of negative force, but I’m not sure if this drama would really go there and this late in the game. It would be an interesting twist, though. All I know is, the woman is crazy.

Nina may be unaware of her family’s actions, but that doesn’t get her a Get Out of Jail Free card. She’s let her admiration for Kang-woo and her hatred for Yeon-seo grow to the point that it’s just unhealthy. And mixing all of that with the pressures of being a ballerina? It ain’t good, y’all. It actually pains me to see someone on the brink of destroying herself. It pains me to see her put up a wall when her cousin is finally, finally trying to be sincere. I had similar feelings of frustration with Kang-woo — as I always do. I’m glad that Hoo now knows who Kang-woo is and that the two had a pretty nice heart-to-heart chat, but Hoo is delusional if he thinks that Kang-woo would be good for Yeon-seo. Kang-woo may have this formal and polite quality to him, but he has never respected Yeon-seo or any of her clear rejections. And it’s only getting worse. At this point, I don’t even want Kang-woo with Nina (because, I’ll admit it, I kind of shipped them in the beginning). I don’t know what I want for Kang-woo, other than some serious help.

Phew… Now that I’ve let all my frustrations out, I can get to the good stuff. This was a great week for Angel’s Last Mission, in that it reminded me of just how much I love it, glaring flaws and all. With Dan and Yeon-seo being official, we got so much of The Cute back, which also brought back all of the liveliness that was present in the earlier episodes. Plus, our heroes had that major win with Yeon-seo’s audition! So satisfying! I totally related to Dan when he mentioned that he was super nervous even though he wasn’t the one dancing; my heart was legitimately pounding in my ears when Yeon-seo stepped on stage. But, of course, our girl did not disappoint. It just sucks that her success is what pushes her family further away.

Going back to our couple, I’ve really enjoyed the parallels with “Giselle,” as well as Dan and Yeon-seo’s differing opinions on the story. It’s strongly hinted that Yeon-seo won’t fear Dan as an angel, but that she will be disappointed that he didn’t trust her enough to tell her. Of course, Dan’s secret is so much bigger than having a fiance (like Albrecht). I’d say his fears in telling her are justified since he’d be delivering two major blows — being an angel and being her long lost childhood friend. One thing I didn’t address in the last recap that’s just dawning on me is Dan’s transition from a boy to an angel. I don’t know if it’ll ever be addressed, but what, was he floating around in some kind of purgatory until his 20s? Or was he raised as an angel from the moment he died?

With couples like this, who are so freaking adorable and who like each other so much, I want to shield them from all the angst and the evil and the crazy aunts and cousins. Dan and Yeon-seo may be adults, but in my eyes, they’re just innocent kids wanting to stay together. They’ve been through enough, Show, now let them be! But alas, dramaland does not work that way. At least, not in this region of dramaland. Fantasy dramas can be a lot less predictable, yet at the same time, they do abide by a certain formula. So yeah, I know we’re nowhere near done with the heartbreak, and it saddens me, but not gonna lie — I am looking forward to some of that delicious angst that’s been set up. I guess I better enjoy The Cute while it lasts.

I know a lot of people hate Ni Na but I am someone who went through something similar to her, well, as in the jealousy to a relative part. I had a cousin, we were in the same class (for 12 years no less) and she was always better than me. I was second, all the time no matter what I did and it drove me crazy to the point I was happy I could finally graduate and get out of that situation. I cried a lot, especially in the last 4 years. She got the best grades, she was the best athlete, she had great social skills, she got the boy I had a crush on and so on..we had the same surname but she was the superior one (that is what I thought that time). She is the only person I've ever been envious of and I hate how that emotion made me feel. I never harmed or sabotaged her in any way, we actually got along quite well but it just ate me up from the inside. Sorry for the sob story but I just wanted people to consider Ni Na's side too, especially that Yeon Soo keeps on ridiculing her which disturbs me emotionally so I don't watch this drama anymore. No one knows how terrible this feeling is and I wish Ni Na would end up ditching everyone and live a peaceful life far away from all those toxic people.

Actually, in the most recent episodes Yeon-seo actually very sincerely complimented Ni-na on her performance and she has been trying to be supportive of her cousin.

Tbh, i like both portrayal of Giselle. On Nina's part, I saw an anger and resentment vibes towards the beloved who had betrayed her. Nina could channel this perfectly due to her jealousy, always second-best and her insecurities against Yeonseo. But watching Yeonseo's part, I saw a heartbreak and overwhelming sadness from one lover to her lover, just like Yeonseo yearning for Dan. I teared a bit at the end when her hand collapsed as if she still hoping her lover would still come back to her.

Sorry I am not majoring in dance or art, this is my opinion if i were an audience.

This show has actually inspired me to go back and revisit the ‘Golfer Couple’ scenes in FIVE CHILDREN(with Sung Hoon, arguably the best looking man on the planet) - which was Shin Hye-sun’s breakout role. Although they were secondary characters to the main couple, they almost stole the show.

As for Sailorjumin’s question as to how long Dan has been an angel- it has not been for a short time. What we do know is that he spent some time in Paradise and then had been on earth for a considerable period of time- long enough that his original mission was now over.

The opening scene of chapter 20 has Hoo talking to Dan- and telling him that Kang-woo is sincere in loving Yeon-soo. This finally confirmed for me that Hoo is flying blind- God is not telling Hoo anything and has not been disclosing anything to him since the initial mission scroll was delivered to him. Kang-woo may be obsessed with Yeon-seo but he does not love her, and Yeon-seo knows it. Kang-woo pays no attention to what Yeon-seo wants and is apparently totally oblivious to what is happening around her with her family. Dan, on the other hand, is aware that her relatives are opposed to Yeon-seo.

At the audition Ni-na is dressed in black while Yeon-seo is dressed in white- BLACK SWAN must have been at least one of the inspirations for this show.

Yeon-seo grinning after Dan admits that he is jealous the Director Ji is waiting at a restaurant for her. She is so happy at Dan’s jealousy- Shin Hye-sun nailed that scene so perfectly, as she has in all of her other scenes. If she does not get a Best Actress award for this drama then something is either seriously wrong in K-Drama land. Actually. I’m thinking Daisang. OK I’m gushing again. I just can’t seem to help it.

With the end scene things are now very serious indeed. Luna has now committed murder again- and attempted to murder her cousin as well, which would have succeeded but for Divine intervention in the form of Dan in angelic form. So now Yeon-seo knows that Dan is an angel. As reveals go this was really dramatic.

Daisangs usually reward rating winners rather than good acting, while Angel isn't doing bad in ratings (highest rated Wed-Thu show by a small margin), KBS has a number of other rating winners they would choose to reward I'm afraid.

I think she can win an award. In kbs alml is the 3 drama with the highest rating at this moment with a peak of 9.4% . and Shin Hye Sun is always in the top most talked actors so i think she can win an award. And even if this is not in kbs she can win an award there is a lot of ceremony.

I agree to some extent. But KBS ratings winner for Wed-Thurs slot all have received praise for acting too. It will be a tough fight for that slot. But SHS does stand a chance, out of the 2-3 dramas before this, I think it was more of an ensemble act. In ALML, SHS is the standout character.

The first time he saved her as angel, she called him a pervert and tried to pull his wings off.

I can't imagine what her reaction is going to be now, beyond stunned. I hope she trusts him enough to get through it without pushing him away.

I wish the writer had trusted them both enough to make this reveal in a less grandiose way. Having her pushed off the roof of the ballet theater was way over the top, even for evil cousin.

With so many threads running through the story the writer faced the fact that Dan simply telling her would naturally have lead her to think of Dan as having a weird fetish. Remember her reaction the first time she saw the wings. A dramatic demonstration of the truth avoids that complication. There are already enough plotlines going- and only so much time left to resolve them. So revealing the truth in such an undeniable way was necessary.

Ohh.. I don't mind Dan showing his true form.
I'm thinking they should talk privately and comfortably. Dan needs to be given time to tell YS the truth and then show her what exactly he is talking about. Rather than freak her out, maybe ease her into that information and gives her time to process what she heard/see.

the ep20 ending is a bit OTT to me... She definitely high on emotions after getting thrown from the roof and then seeing winged Dan, that kinda a bit too many things to process in a short period of time. But let see how they proceed from that ending next episode~

I do wish we’d had a few more moments of real connection between Yeon Seo and Kang Woo—not that I wish to be or would be swayed from the OTP. But in Queen for Seven Days, we saw a connection and then that connection fell away into crazed obsession and it was interesting and tragic (so we know the actor can do that)! Whereas here I’m like, boy do I love Yeon Seo, but boy does he not—he never reacts to her like she’s really there, or listens to her or respects her, and the majority of him reflecting on his new love for her is the time she danced while we the audience are 100% aware she was envisioning another man, therefore again not a single moment of real connection. So we’re left going ‘ok loon! Guess you got confused by the face!’ Guess Hu just doesn’t want to hurt Dan and is clutching at straws, because seriously this guy for Yeon Seo? He can stay at her feet for ten years and she’ll be like ‘I beg u to be professional, director.’ Interesting that he obsessively loves... an imaginary construct of YS and his old love, Ni Na him, and Lu Na Ni Na... a caution against loving this way, a way the beloved wouldn’t want to be loved.

While Dan and Yeon Seo, cute as kittens, loving each other the way they DO wish to be loved—very supportive, very good for each other when the world isn’t good to them, him sweet when she’s sour, her serious when he’s trying to laugh things off, her joy at his jealousy—what she wants is to matter, and she’s his first and last. More and more I incline to the idea God wants these wounded souls together but they have to pass a test first—but maybe I count too recklessly on a happy ending when one of the pair IS dead. I assume he sojourned in heaven, then got sent down to work and has always acted young because he was young and he wasn’t learning to grow up in any human sense—and hardly more so was Yeon Seo, raised in such material privilege. But now these kids both have to grow up.

Itd be nice to see more from Kangwoo but his backstory seems to hinder that. I want to hate him a lot more than i already do but he has been through a lot. i guess after years of being alone hes just desperate for any kind of love resembling his last one. Not fair to him or Seolhee though. Or Yeonseo and Dan of course..

Okay, so, at this point, I just want a solid reason as to why Ru Na is THAT determined to go such desperate lengths for Ni Na. TBH, I would have understood if they showed a great bond as sisters on the show. But they haven't. All we got is Ni Na whining and Ru Na telling her to stop. Ru Na doesn't even seem like an affectionate sister. So, there must be another reason why she's doing this to Yeon Seo. I want to see the root of all this resentment from her because the plain "she-cares-for-her-sister" doesn't really justify anything. Does she want to take over Fantasia? Does she want to get the nod of approval from her mum, who is now also terrified of her? Does she have an encounter with Yeon Seo back in the day that sparked all this rage? WHAT???

I've found this puzzling too. We haven't seen one scene between the sisters that convinced me they are that close. Ru-na would have been a much more compelling antagonist if we got some backstory and emotional development. As of now, I have absolutely no idea what's she's after in the long run and how any of this will help her get there.

I got the impression that she wasn't doing it for Ni Na, so much as she was just waiting for Ni Na's anger to be strong enough to justify doing it. Sort of like an evil genie waiting for its owner to succumb to human weakness and make an evil wish that they don't actually mean. The more that's revealed about Ru Na the more I'm convinced we're going to get some cliffhanger ending reveal that she's not what she appears to be. I mean, come on, she's got parseltongue-esque background whispers whenever she's on screen. The serpent is often believed to be synonymous with Satan in Christianity.

I've noticed that whenever she seems to make a decision to do something bad there is a light sound of voices or hissing in the background. @sailorjumun mentioned it the recap. It is creepy sounding and gives me the chills.
So I'm wondering if there is some TRUE evil inside her?

I am still trying to figure out the connection between KW's ballerina and his obsession with look-a-like YS. The only clue I have found is that the dead ballerina's surname was Choi, the same as YS's aunt. Could she have been aunt Choi's younger sister?

This episode had so many good moments. I loved the scene where Dan reached out to touch YS's hand as he passes by her while the dancers were waiting for the results. That subtle gesture so simple yet impactful.

I also really enjoyed the talk they had in the garden when Dan told YS about his father. The way he hesitated and how she slowly coaxed it out of him. She instinctively knew to ask if his father had asked for forgiveness. That was a truly tender and heartfelt scene. I think L excels at quiet moments like these.

I was also impressed with Nina's dance routine and actually thought she would win. I was also glad that everyone including YS acknowledged that Nina did well. It was probably the first time YS saw her cousin in a different light and felt proud of her accomplishment.

And of course, that ending was breathtaking! This show has been burning through story lines since the beginning and I really do wonder, with 6 more episodes to go, which direction they will be taking this story.

Well that ending was...dramatic. And abrupt. They actually kidnapped her in van, tied her to a pole and threw her off a building. Seriously? Over ballet? This isn't sparkly-gun-totin'-angels level ridiculous, but it was definitely over the top. I feel like it's beating us over the head with the fact that Evil Cousin is eeeevil. And based on those creepy, whispery voices when she makes eeevil decisions, I'm kinda hoping she's possessed. Her homicidal tendencies would make way more sense that way as opposed to the unconvincing rationale of just wanting her sister to succeed.

As always, the dancing scenes were beautiful and emotionally resonant. Their interpretations showed so clearly the emotions fueling their perspectives--Ni-na's anger and Yeon-seo's longing. Both of them were powerful in their own way, although Ni-na's anger doesn't bode well for her mental health.

So the whispers got me. It was actually a nice addition to drive home that Luna is one psychotic b*tch. What sane person plans harm and even murder? The whispers feel like a hint to some serious psychiatric issue--maybe schizophrenia? Gosh. The little hints we got earlier make it clear now that mommy isn't the scary one. Luna was the mastermind of all the scary shit that happened to Yeonseo.
Kang woo continues to be creepy for me. Since when did he turn from being obsessed with bringing back Yeonseo to the stage to being seriously in love with her? I didn't see the transition. All I see is one creepy man wanting to own the ballerina who loves someone else. And who the hell does he think he is to threaten Dan?
This drama is very convoluted. Lol. The mythology is so loose and the rules are not properly laid out. I don't understand a lot of things but I'm still watching. Lol. Drama 1 Me 0

We all missed the transition with Kangwoo, suggesting to me that he in fact does not really love her (as his actions actually show) but rather has decided to rationalize his obsession- which is to find meaning to his continued existence. So he has decided that he has to be in love with her in order to bring meaning to his continued existence. He does not understand that it was his mission that gave his existence meaning. Yeon-seo is simply the current object of his obsession.

Luna is definitely psychotic.

Oh. Nice take on Kangwoo. It makes sense that he's just rationalizing his actions. Sad when he said he wanted to get out of that hell now and Yeonseo is the reason.. Maybe Kangwoo is still lost. He doesn't know that he doesn't need another being to complete him, to justify his existence. Rather, he has to find and love himself in order to truly love another. Maybe the whole "mission for angels" is really what's wrong with this drama world. Blame the deity. Ha.

I think angel Hoo is wrong. KW is confusing obsession with love. He is trying to find meaning to his unending existence in YS which is already just wrong given that he was an angel. Ultimately, no matter his proclamations of whatever, his actions towards YS are not the actions of love.

Yeah. This is the second time I hate Hoo's ignorance on matters. Lol. I feel like he should know better since he's sunbae. Facepalm.

Kangwoo's actions are more of a stalker than lover. He doesn't even respect her. The man doesn't know his boundaries. Which leads me to question, did he really love Yeonseo doppelganger? Or was he just blinded by her art and beauty? He was the angel of inspiration then.. Maybe he just misinterpreted his feelings? Unlike Dan now, back then KW didn't fear getting involved with her. Idk maybe I'm wrong. Lol

I echo your comment on how ridiculous they trying to keep YS from the stage. While I understand Nina resentment being permanent no.2 I don't understand her sister+mom motives? Her sister especially. What exactly is her motive but please don't use sisterly love for that. So, is she going to kill every time Nina becomes the 2nd place?

And I don't understand how KW can fall for YS. All I see is he is being obsessive and full of anger even around her. And YS sees that too. Did he fell for her during her rendition of Giselle because I'm sure as heck that YS was picturing Dan and KW know that. If he at least shows that he cares about her then I might buy that but he didn't even care about her.

I'm glad Dan and YS is back together and official~ The cute is back and I wonder how he will tell her about his real self and how she will react to that. But hopefully, that moment is done quietly with just the two of them. But with the way ep20 ended, I'm not sure....

Oh man. I'm in love with this drama. I haven't watched any Kdrama for almost a year. While Kim Jae Wook/Ryan Gold lured me back in *winks*, this one definitely made me fell in love with Kdrama again especially with the performances of Shin Hye-sun (Please give her all the awards, KBS. Seriously) and L.

I also want to know why Ru-na is so evil. There were already hints that she is way more evil than her mom. And I also want to know what happened to Yeon-seo's parents. Was it an "accident" too? O_O

I just want Yeon-seo and Dan to be happy. And is too much to ask if I want to see Dan and Kang Woo, plus Ms. Jung to team up and stop the Evil Aunt and Evil Cousin?

While this episode was arguably better than the last, I have some issues that needs mentioning.

(1) Luna - To borrow a word from Harry Potter, I’m going to address Luna and Loony from now onwards, because that’s the personality she gives out. I honestly liked how Loony was always the one crazy in the family. But i have to say, the background music always bothered it. It’s like there is some unseen presence around her ordering her to do these things. The whispers I’ve noticed seem to get louder and louder and if you look closely, it seems like she’s actually listening to them. We can’t hear the words clearly but if the show goes with her being possessed I’m gonna give them a standing ovation. I understand it’s too late for such a reveal, I mean we’ve got Dan to reveal himself and Kang Woo to reveal himself and for the bad guys to be caught too, so it’s gonna have so much reveals. But this would put the cherry on the top. But like sailorjumun said, I don’t think we can go with this excuse for Loony. If she has been possessed from day one, it would be fine of her to act like the Evil Twin all the time. But I think it’s because she has devoted her life to make her sister happy. Which is sibling goals, yes, but the intensity of the lengths she would go to is honestly absurd. She has no life, as we’ve seen many times and honestly, if we look closely, she doesn’t have anything against Yeon Seo either. Nina hates Yeon Seo and that’s the reason why Loony is hell bent on destroying her. Literally the entire family is doing things to Yeon Seo to keep Nina happy. Family goals, but honestly, this is too much.

(2) Nina - I used to like her. Honestly. When she came up to Yeon Seo and told her to compete with her and turned around and gave herself a pep talk I couldn’t help but say aww. She was close to Dan and I was afraid that as the second lead, Nina will fall for Dan too. But thankfully that drama didn’t happen. Look, Nina is all of us. We have all been jealous of someone who’s doing better than us. Someone prettier, more handsome, better in studies, more talented, teacher’s pet, we’ve all been there. Maybe even in our best friend, our sister or brother, we’ve all been jealous. But with Nina, it consumed her. The jealousy consumed her in whole and she voiced out her hatred. She was the start of this whole drama. Yeon Seo lost her eyesight because of Nina’s jealousy. She lost her trusted ahjussi because of Nina’s jealousy. She was the end of bad treatment because of Nina’s jealousy. And by the end of the day, everyone in her family starting from her scheming mother, to her entirely evil (or possessed) sister to her softie father, all of them are doing these things to satisfy Nina. Over a part in a ballet play. I can’t get to wrap that thought around my mind. The fact that the entire Geum family was readily gonna kill innocent people was for a part in a ballet play? This is drama at its extreme.

(3) Black cap - Apart from him looking like a model and...

Huh, the rest got cut off. Anyway, here you go.

(3) Black cap - Apart from him looking like a model and wearing all black like death, he doesn’t seem to have an ounce of sympathy on him. I mean, at first I was like “yeah, he’s loony’s minion and so he can’t argue with her orders”. But when he removed Yeon Seo’s blindfold and the ropes that bind her, i was thinking, that wasn’t an order from Loony. He actually thought of something without getting orders to even think. Yes, black caps and black clothes for a minion in kdrama is a cliche used so many times it’s not even funny. I mean according to kdrama if you see someone wearing all black and a black cap avoid him at all costs. He’s gonna kill you. But has anyone actually thought who black cap was? He’s a minion yes, but, I don’t know. Something doesn’t ring right with him. I feel like there’s more to his character than he’s letting on.

(4) Aunt Choi and Uncle Kim - Now one would argue that Aunt Choi and her hilarious diabolical plans to get Yeon Seo to back off is evil. But to me, I have a feeling that Uncle Kim is the mastermind here. Yes, he tells Nina to be kind. He sheds tears in Yeon Seo’s audition. But when he stopped Park from revealing the recording and told him that he’ll confess to the police afterwards, something stopped me from being on Uncle Kim’s ship. Let’s have a look at what Aunt Choi actually were able to achieve: she only fended off the suitable eye donors of Yeon Seo. I mean, every other plan of hers fell through, didn’t they? So basically, Loony was machinating all they evil plans and played everyone but Aunt Choi managed to look like a hilarious disaster. She got to know the real side of her elder daughter too. Meanwhile Uncle Kim actually told Park to not go forward and that he’ll confess to the crimes. Does that mean that he had some hand in the death of Yeon Seo’s parents?

To Nina's credit, she actually did well during the audition. For a second I thought she was gonna get the role. Until Yeonseo claimed it. Lol. Almost. Like you said, Nina is like the rest of us--jealous and wanting at times. But what Nina failed to notice, like the rest of us don't when we're jealous, is that she is loved. Despite her inadequacies, she is valued by her family more than anything. We receive more love than we are aware of. And maybe we're also the object of someone else's jealousy. Nina is unaware of the heights her family is willing to go just to satisfy her desires. In the end, Nina is just a spoiled brat unwilling to stop whining until given the toy she wants.

Poor Nina, her family is composed by psychopaths and to honest Yeon Seo was pretty awful with her in the beginning. When Yeon Seo has the cute and good angel to help her, Nina has the cynical no angel-no human to give her advices... I understand her feelings. But I was hoping she will understand that her kindness is a strength too. But everyone is telling her the opposite.

I like the moments between Yeon Seo and Dan but I really dislike the Fondation's politics and the angel mythology.

I'm happy that the dance is still there in the story. Sometimes, they give up very fast in the story the main theme, not here.

You know who I find to be a continuous question mark? Luna and Nina's father, Director Choi's husband. What exactly is his deal? ..... A couple of episodes ago he was imploring his wife to stop her underhanded ways, then he was helping her burn books with compromising details, so he kind of goes along with her plans more often then not ..... fast forward to this episode and he's shedding tears at the audition and next he's begging his wife, once again, to stop . All the while he seems completely oblivious to daughter Luna's schemes, but when he has time, or whatever, he's talking to Mr. Park trying to convince him to stop this or that. This Uncle, I tell ya. *shaking head*

Noticed that too! Probably the most inconsistent character in this drama. At least Kangwoo is dead set on claiming Yeonseo. Luna is focused on destroying the latter. Director Choi's only goal in life is to own Fantasia. Yeonseo has eyes for one man angel. Nina wants to win in both ballet and love. But dad? Dad isn't sure what he wants. 😂

This makes me wonder on who is actually more evil...

The one who does something wrong, or the one who knows the person is doing something wrong but not doing anything. I feel like Nina and the dad fall on the latter.

I still hope they'd focus less on the crazy family and the politics and give me more angels and mythos and love.

I'll talk about the villains first.

I'm not trusting this writer to give us complex villains based on what I've seen so far. They range from Dumb Dumber to Luna-tic.
Mr Park - This man is so inept. How can he be entrusted to carry out any task? He's however very useful to writer nim as a plot device.
Luna-tic - I don't think she's possessed but I can totally understand why anyone would think that. There's so little shown of why Luna behaves the way she does. She's not even warm towards Ni Na. There's also no overt greed towards getting the foundation. Basically there's no motivation.
Ni Na - This is the character the writer should have worked on. Get rid of Mom, Dad, Luna-tic and minions and concentrate on making a villain out of Ni Na. One who didn't start out crazy but was driven mad by jealousy and the knowledge that she can never be better than Yeon Seo. I'd buy that story. The grueling punishing world of competitive ballet where you are never flexible enough, strong enough, thin enough, beautiful enough or talented enough.
It's obvious that the writer took inspiration from the movie Black Swan since the female lead has the exact same name. So why stop at just the name?
I had it with Hoo in this episode. Does he really know who Kang Woo is or was? I can't believe he knows and yet pushes Yeon Seo into Kang Woo's hands. Dan shouldn't listen to him at all! If this is not evil, what is? He makes it appear as if returning to heaven is the ultimate goal, even if you need to 'sell your soul' or in this case, push your girl to the devil.
Kang Woo - is he human or not? If he's human, how can he sprout wings and not die? If he's still an angel, then he must be a fallen one which is why I said Hoo's plan is diabolic.

Enough of the bad and onto what I love - Dan and Yeon Seo. I am glad that the writing is good when it comes to these two characters and their interactions are so wonderful, cute and touching.

I keep complaining about the stupidity of all characters starting with the cops in Abyss but in general I hate it in any drama when baddies are always ahead with stupid plots that would have never worked in their favor all the time in real life. That phone tapping scene was ridiculous. The only drama that did that in a more believable fashion was My Ajusshi.

I don’t think Nina meant it literally when she said that she wished Yeon Seo was dead nor expected anyone to do her bidding. It was one of those things one says when upset without really meaning it and I think she won’t appreciate that all this happened to Yeon Seo because of those fateful words she uttered in front of Luna. She wouldn’t even like it if she won by buying votes. She was head ballerina for 3 years in Yeon Seo’s absence, did that satisfy her? Did that give her self confidence? I think hers is a case of environment ruining her. She has a good nature but that family and Kang Woo’s advice and her feelings for him together made her get obsessed. Her dance was impressive, I like her bolder in that regard but once she start losing the boundaries between what is her art versus her life it can get dangerous.

Luna on the other hand is absolutely crazy to think that she actually meant it and go through with it. Until now I thought she was just evil but now I’m starting to think she is mentally unhinged.

I also don’t know what Hoo is smoking, there is no way Kang Woo wants Yeon Seo for herself. He doesn’t know her beyond his very brief observation of her dancing for that.

As soon as they took Yeon Seo on top of a building it was clear how things were gonna go. This isn’t the best way for her to find out about Dan. He should have told her.

I was always worried about this show’s pacing. I am not complaining about the speedy progress and don’t necessarily want it any slower but we are only on episode 10 so I am afraid of it going around in circles with Dan keep disappearing on Yeon Seo despite what he told her because Yen Seo and Dan are adorable together.

We have 3 more weeks. Preview doesn't give me hope that we can avoid angst. It's the standard drama formula. It's always angst driven climax, I'll just have to accept that. For this drama, I am curious how it will end. Since the concept of angels and humans intermingling are so messed up, anything can happen.

I hope no one dies, please. Hoo is stupid for thinking kang woo's love for yeon seo is sincere. I wonder how he became an angel. And this drama's concept of God and His love is so messed up. I just hope dan doesn't get back to being an angel. Then there is no point of his coming back. To rob someone of a love this special after having the taste of it, is just so wrong. If I was yeon seo I would never be in peace.
And kang woo, oh God where do I start. He's controlling, manipulative, shady and doesn't like people who is there for yeon seo. His love doesn't sacrifice, while Dan's love is about sacrifice. I hope the writer sticks to this concept and gives Dan a happy ending. There is a difference between good and evil and this drama has been trying to stress on that from the start.. through Dan's and kang woo's actions. And both's actions speak volumes of how they are as a person/ (or maybe angel).
Off topic, have anyone watched this movie called wings of desire? It's about an angel and an actress, whom he falls for. A friend recommended it to me so I am thinking about watching it.

I think this is my biggest issue with the depiction of angels in this: they are either completely clueless about humanity (and if so, one has to wonder how could one expect them to show the fairness, kindness or compassion one usually associates with a christian god) or completely caught up in their own little motivations at the price of the greater good (case in which they are no better than the pathetic selfish little humans they are guarding over). Not sure which is which, but I wish the mythology was more clear and consistent.

(3) According to the previews, I’m sensing that someone made Yeon Seo forget what happened? I think it was Kang Woo who asked “Did you erase her memory?”. If that’s what’s going to happen I’m gonna shake my head in advance.

About the erasing of Yeonseo’s memory, I don’t think it’s Dan who does it. I think it’s either Hoo or maybe she just loses her memory on her own? Why would Dan erase her memory when he was going to reveal to her that he was an angel? The only reason I can think of Dan erasing her memory is because he doesn’t want her to remember the traumatic experience of being kidnapped and almost murdered. I really don’t think it’d be because she found out he’s an angel.

That would be so lame. The entire point they were making so far is that love necessarily entails suffering: you can't have one without the other, but the good bits are what make living worthwhile.

As much as I don’t like it because I want our OTP to have a chance of happiness for once, I’m glad this episode happened where Kang Woo finally broke and lines are for sure blurring now with Yeon Seo and his past lover. I’m just hoping that this blurring of lines with Kang Woo for Yeon Seo means that she has one more person to protect her from Crazy Choi & The Sisters, and not one more person who thinks they can have a claim on Yeon Seo as a person, prop for their own gain, and certainly not just a thing they think they can simply kill off... She’s a living, breathing, human being for goodness sakes....

This episode made me think about just how much Nina actually knows about her cray cray mom and her obsessive sister 🤔🤔🤔— she literally cry wishes that Yeon Seo was dead, and the next thing we see is Yeon Seo being literally pushed off a building to die 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

Nina's dance was very good actually. I understand her frustration with Yeon-seo, it cant be easy having your own cousin constantly stealing the spotlight. But I like that Yeonseo didnt seem all cocky when she won the role. She was genuinely grateful. She's worked really hard for this and it shows. (I said this before, but Im impressed with Shin Hyesun and her dedication to the role!)
