Extraordinary You Ep10 (19-20)

HaRu ya….
How can you be such a smoothie?

Dan-Oh must be trying really hard to get herself together in front of him. Arghhh. Look at how his smile gets wider and wider. I have no idea how she can put up with this.

This episode definitely feels like the calm before the storm. I’m bracing myself really tight right now. Come what may, I’m totally prepared.

And oh, Do I need to pay my attention to this book??????????

Only 6 episodes to go, you’d better start to give me some answer, please. I’m begging you.

    OMG.. take a closer look. Isn’t that after he took a glance at her lips he’s grining from ear to ear. My heart-rate monitor is screaming!!!!

    Now, I think Dan-Oh is at the Bargaining stage of grif. She’s afraid if she tries to go against the Writer again, others would get hurt, especially HaRu. She has experienced it first hand and still blaming herself on that. So, she thinks if she stays a good girl (10-year one-sided love & heart-disease) quietly as the Writer wants, she would get to be happy with HaRu and all her friends, at least in the Shadow, before she gets killed off of the story. Don-Oh loss of passion is understandable and heart-wrenching. She still wants to live happily but if that comes in the cost of her friends’ (well, her love) lives, she wouldn’t risk it ever again.

    By the way, what happen to a character when they die in the story? Do they go straight back to the character warehouse? Or do they get to stay in the Shadow unnoticable until the story ends?

    Since Secret is supposed to be somewhat a redemption of Flower, because something happened and it ended tragically, I wonder what Fate the Writer has prepared for the three of them (Baek Kyung & Dan-Oh & HaRu).

    Baek Kyung…

    His goal is clear, to restore the statud quo he’s lost. Dan-Oh and everyone’s attention has been totally shifted from him to HaRu. On one hand, I feel really bad for him because it seems like he’s been pushed to the villain side (by everyone including he himself). I can see he’s trying (without much success) to explain and convince Dan-Oh that he’s not as bad as his Stage persona (babe, you have to admit you’re not much better in Shadow). But that’s because he likes her. On the other hand, he’s still a jerk to everyone else. He can not control his temper and always lashes out when he’s frustrated. I can’t blame Dan-Oh (and others) for not fully understanding why he’s being like this. I think he doesn’t even fully understand himself. They are just high school kids after all. But I do hope they will join force pretty soon to fight against the Writer who is the real villain in this story.

    Speculations:

    Flower
    Excalibur-esque.
    Kyung = Arthur, Dan-Oh = Guinevere, HaRu = Lancelot.
    Originally, Kyung & Dan-Oh should’ve ended up together happily and HaRu sacrificed himself for Kyung. But HaRu & Dan-Oh gain self-conciousness first (Kyung might also have later) and fell in love. They tried to change the story. When the Writer knew, s/he took full control over her/his rebel characters only to pushed them further to the edge. Eventually, s/th happened and Dan-Oh died instead of HaRu.

    That’s why she cannot remember anything from her past. Only her sub-councious remembers him.

    Secret
    The Writer tries to make it up to Kyung and at the same time punish Dan-Oh and HaRu. So s/he makes Dan-Oh his fiacée again but this time he gets to play the upper hand being the pertect guy who’s good at study and sports (defective family is just a little drama added for him to have the reasonable excuse to be a jerk to her), while she gets a weak heart. This time she’s the one who goes head over heels for him. Also, HaRu becomes the faceless extra with almost non-existence.

    What I’m not so sure of is that if Dan-Oh was supposed to die here in Secret, how would that make Kyung happy? His self-aware persona likes her, no doubt. But what about his Stage character? If he likes her, wouldn’t he be devastated when she dies?

    If they didn’t share the past lives together, this would be a totally different scenario. But the Writer has been giving the impression that s/he is not so creative and improvident by nature so all of my above theory could be completely irrelevant. Let’s see how it turns out to be. Only 6 episodes to go for this amazing drama.

ExtraOrdinary You Ep9 (17-18)

Okay, I forgive you, Show! For hurting my poor heart and making me cry for the previous 2 episodes. This one is worth waiting. Just to see Dan-Oh smiling so brightly is enough for me. But you also add the still gentle yet very assertive HaRu on top of that. This is everything I’m hoping for when I signed up for the show.

The mystery is still mostly mysterious. The Flower (I prefer the name over Trumpet Creeper, to be honest) manhwa is giving Arthur-Guinevere-Lancelot vibe. And now we’ve been clearly told that they ended up in tragedy (according to Dried Squid). I wonder if HaRu was really the male lead in that manhwa??? What if, just what uf, it was Baek Kyung? But the self-aware Dan-Oh and Haru were really falling in love off Stage then eloped together? I don’t want to overthink again considering the way I was trolled by the plot hole last episode (Baek Kyung blindly not noticing himself in Flower). But it was so fun, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking.

Also, why do I find Baek Kyung’s ridiculous outrageous behavior so funny???? I mean look at how he throws a tantrum here.

He’s like a spoiled brat (he’s always been) who has just learned for the first time that the world doesn’t evolve around him. In contrast to the three musketeers who always stick together helping each other, he is pushing himself to the darkest corner with no one on his side. He’s so jealous of HaRu because the HaRu seems to now have everything that (he thought) belongs to him. Including, Dan-Oh, Do-Hwa, and even his popularity. I know he’s not going to watch from the side but I just want him to realize that being like a naughty little boy is not going to help him either. I love that both Dan-Oh and HaRu was giving him the lecture and I hope it will sink in soon.

How did the manhwa books end up in the library? Did Jin Mi-Chae bring them? If so, why would he do that? If not, and if it was the Writer who put them there, then burning them would be useless since they will restore themselves onto the shelf anyway. Right?

    It’s sort of useless to think at this point. It has plot holes upon plot holes.
    They didn’t define the limits of their world or explain how exactly it works.
    The writer has been left as a megalomaniac God or something.

      oh!.. you wait for the ending 🙂
      i.e. if drama follows manga..
      and by ending i’m referring to author’s ending.. not the characters’

        No, I’m pretty sure the drama’s ending will be similar to the manhwa July found by Chance.
        It’s useless because the Flower manhwa turning from Flower to Nun Seo Hwa, & appearing magically in the bookshelf is just one of the many plot holes & nigglers of this drama.

        When you have BK as a walking talking contradiction, what’s a little book?

          I wonder..
          i don’t see book appearing on the bookshelf a plothole.. if at all it is very much in line with the theme of the show..

          plothole would be when laws of manga world change.. like in one situation x happens, but same set of variables and y happens

            They addressed the issue in the drama, as Jin Mi-Chae wondered out loud: “Why does the book always end up on its shelf in the library?”. So I don’t see this as a plot hole yet since they (the drama writers) acknowledged it. If they don’t clarify it at the end (but, honestly, I think they will), only then it’ll become a plot hole to me.

      It’s quite amazing to have these tiny details to think about when we don’t yet get to see what really happen (or never get to see at all). What’s the fun having a drama that will be forgetten as soon as the episode ends?

    I wondered about that too. Why do these books ALWAYS end up at the library?? Also, are there multiple copies of the same volume? Because sometimes, it feels like it, what with so many people flipping through the pages…

      that’s like a fantasy element..
      if you can accept that characters are becoming self aware.. having the comic around them kind of goes hand in hand

      I feel that way too. Just how many copies are floating around? Where do they come from? I get the writer might be cheeky & drew secret manhwa cover as part of the library books, but then why would they draw Flower? Unless it was deliberate & like an Easter egg for the irl author’s readers.
      This show raises many questions but doesn’t bother to answer even the ones it itself raised in it.

        I initially thought the books are easter eggs too. They are there in the story because the Writer put them there.

        That’s why I wonder what’s the point to have Jin Mi-Chae burning them? He might forget the fact that everything will be reset as soon as the next Stage begins. If that’s the case, then it will be a plot hole because he, of all people, knows, more than well, about the rules of their manhwa world.

        Flower might serve as a prequel to Secret. The manhwa Writer seems to be obsessive & compulsive. S/He reuse a lot of elements from the Flower and put them in Secret, the characters & the scenes and even the dialogue.

      @kethysk
      I have the impression that there’s only one copy of each (1 for Flower (or Trumpet Creeper or Trumpet Vine or 능소화) and 1 for Secret) in the story. People are taking turn reading. That’s why it keeps missing and they have to go around looking for it when they need reference. Jin Mi-Chae gets a hold of both books quite more often than the others, however, he also complains the book keeps returning to its shelf in the library.

        I might have missed the part where Jin Mi-Chae complains about the books going back to the library, then. because I feel like he almost always has them, at the same time as an unfortunate soul is discovering them.

          DB Episode 6 recap;

          She’s surprised to find Mi-chae in the library this time, and he explains that he’s there a lot because the “Secret” manhwa keeps returning to its shelf. Dan-oh tells him that Do-hwa is adjusting well, but she’s still struggling because she heard she’s dying. Mi-chae has read that scene, but she orders him not to look at her so pityingly because she’s still planning to change her fate.

    Clarification;

    My original question would be: How did the manhwa books end up in the story?

    At first, I thought they’re easter eggs the manhwa Writer playfully hide (in plain sight) in the story. Dried Squid, for some reason, learned about them and got a hold of them purely for his own amusement. It almost feels like he enjoys watching these characters, including himself, playing along the roles determined by the Writer. The first half of the drama, it looks like he’s teaming up with the writer and acting like the gate-keeper to make sure no one messes up the Fate.

    But as time goes by, he seems to be resentful about his own fate too. When he ran into Nam-Ju’s mom and was forced to be polite to her (whom he clearly seems to hold some grudges against), he thought: It’s the worst when you are a character whose actions are in complete control of the writer. So, I started to lean on the idea that he might have had some bad experiences trying to change the fate himself (I’ve read this theory through some other beanines’ post). Maybe in Flower, Nam-Ju’s mom was the mother of the girl he loved but she didn’t approve their relationship. So, they ended up in tragedy.

    Ahh, I can think of a plenty of theories but as much information as we have, it’s not enough to be sure as of now. Please continue to surprise me, Show! I’m trusting you.

More thoughts on Baek Kyung;
(the more I say I hate him, the more I think about him, am I crazy?)

His personality hasn’t changed a bit once he gains self-awareness. He’s still the same old moron he used to be. The way he lashes out in the Shadow on his own (crooked) family and even disrespects Dan-Oh’s dad because he knows they wouldn’t remember any of it, proves what I have been thinking; “He’s a jerk”.

But, then, what has been changed? Personally, I think the only difference is his feelings for Dan-Oh.

9

    In one of their interviews, the casts take turn asking each other’s character questions.
    And for Kyung the questiong goes; “You like Dan-Oh, right? Do you like her because you, youself, (really) like her or because of HaRu (who shows up out of nowhere and potentially be taking her away)?
    His answer; “I’m not sure, but she is mine from the beginning. He can’t just take her. No way.”

    If they’re in-character while answering these questions (I believe they were), this indicates he has a lot of sense of possession. While still confused about his feelings for Dan-Oh, he intuitively claims her as his possession. He took her love for granted for 10 years but he senses that it might not be the case anymore. Now that he is falling in love for real (if any of this can be real), his attitude and behavior towards her has changed. Sure, he also feels empathy for her siuation and that’s a result of his affection. He doesn’t show this kindness to others when he fully aware they are just doing what they do because of their character set up.

    He realizes if he approaches her in the same (no) manner, he wouldn’t have a chance of winning her back. And we know, in dramaland, bad boy who falls in love can turn lovey-dovey in the blink of an eye. Take Lee Hyuk as an example. Does that make him less of an ass, NO! Is it swooney, YES definitely!

    HaRu existence definitely plays a big part catalysing this change.

    In the process of waking up, and also after become fully self-aware, Baek Kyung always approaches and tests HaRu’s feelings towards Dan-Oh. First, he said he’s toying with her to see if HaRu really cares. Then he tests if HaRu trully lost his memory by ordering him to give things to Dan-Oh on his behalf. He knows HaRu is a big threat to his and Dan-Oh predetermined relationship. He copes with his own jealousy by making HaRu jealous instead.

    The more I know Kyung, the more I sympathize him (but may I repeat he’s still a jerk?)

    It’s heart-breaking to see him asking Dan-Oh if any of their history ever be REAL to her (as it is real to him). He looks completely dejected upon hearing her answer and I want to go in to give him a big HUG (once again, you’re still a jerk). The ONLY love you thought you have turns out to be a FAKE LOVE (cue BTS bg music). But, self-aware or not, he has never made Dan-Oh happy. Not even when he’s trying to be nice to her. His feelings come in the wrong place at the wrong time (one can blame it on the Writer), and this is what I mean by saying it’s too late for him.

    Now that HaRu’s back and turning on a full boyfriend mode with Dan-Oh, into which direction is he heading?

    Considering his character, I presume he wouldn’t go down without a fight to get her back on his side. But he’ll slowly realize she’s happiest in someone else arms and step aside to be a good friend. Right? I can trust you, right?

    Baek Kyung-ah, I really want you to find happiness too. I feel like LOVE, a pure love, is the only thing you ever want. I hope you can find it in the frienship with Dan-Oh, HaRu, Do-Hwa, and Nam-Ju. And I hope your family will eventually come together at the end and you’ll find your peace with that.

    And, maybe, just maybe, a spin-off or a sequel for Kyung’s romantic love(?). Please Writer-nim. Please dramalord. 🙏

      I really hope now that Haru is back to his old self, we’re not going to descend down the path of him and Kyung just constantly being at each other’s throats.

      My heart broke seeing Kyung’s face as Danoh told him frankly that the path ahead of her (marriage, illness, etc.) is not something that she’s a willing participant in at all. The underlying message was clear: The fact that I’m doing these things with you doesn’t make them any more bearable for me. And I think that was really difficult for him to hear.

      I hope the writer gives him a chance to discover who he really is. Similar to what Dohwa said, I don’t want him to just settle for being that bad guy who’s mean to Danoh and eventually just loses out on her friendship. I want him to work together with E3 (Extraordinary 3: Haru, Danoh and Dohwa 😂) to change his fate and get out of this toxic environment with his dad. I want him to find happiness.

      And since we know he’s not going to marry Danoh, I personally volunteer to be his fiancé in her place 🤪

Youtube did a GREAT job suggesting Lee Jae-Wook’s insta live. Do they have a sensor that can detect I’ve somewhat become Baek Kyung trash? And Jae-Wookie calls Kim Hye-Yoon “Hye-Yoonie” instead of Noona? 😍😍😍

Okay…WHO is this guy?


He appears twice in \’Flower\’; once with Dan-Oh and another with HaRU (those two are the same person, right?).

At first I thought he’s supposed to be Baek Kyung (from his apperance & he’s giving a flower bouquet to Dan-Oh, just like in ‘Secret’). But Kyung only notices Dan-Oh in the manhwa and not himself? He clearly said “the girl looks exactly like Dan-Oh”, not “it’s me and Dan-Oh”. So it’s not him(?). Or is he being blinded by his LOVE for Dan-Oh (as in “my eyes can see only you and nothing else”😍)? Or is it Dried Squid?? Or a totally new character??🤔🤔🤔

And, is the Writer being lazy or what?
Not only reuse lots of characters but also the scenes and the scripts. Where’s your sense of originality? 😏

    based on what squid said about someone making another person’s story theirs..

    I am guessing squid was somewhere (deviation from manga though) .. and Nam Joo’s mom was there too 😛 .. and DO probably ruined their love story back then with haru..

    last time she went for the mother
    this time she will ruin son’s love story/manhwa 😛

ExtraOrdinary You Ep8 (15-16)

Baek Kyung, I told you like 5 episodes ago that it\’s too late, didn\’t I? Still, I really feel bad for you. The indifferent Dan-Oh is worse than the annoying,-clingging-overly sweet Dan-Oh, right? Now that the ONLY love you\’ve ever encountered is likely turning out to be just a lie. That hurts, I know! Hope you can find a way to cope with this shocking twist and live your life happily at the end. Be strong.

Okay, emotions aside. How many, exactly, characters from \’Flower\’ are reappearing in \’Secret\’?
1. HaRu
2. Dan-Oh
3. Squiddy
4. Nam-Ju\’s mom
5. Baek Kyung (? Not sure)

Also, Joo-Da is gaining self-awareness or could already become aware? It\’d be Dae Bak if she turns out to be a fox. Look at her smirk at the bully girls. Makes chills run up and down my spine.

    Also, Baek Kyung’s brother is another self-aware character or what? The look in his eyes shows that he KNOWs what going on, right?

    I think everyone in Secret came from Flower. I think the comic writer just changes thing, perhaps in Flower, Ha Ru and Dan Oh are the lead and Ju Da and Nam Ju are extra. So in Secret, the writer makes Ju Da and Nam Ju as the lead while Ha Ru and Dan Oh as extra. So that everyone eventually has a taste of the life of leading characters (not that they could remember it anyway)

      Oooooh Secret is a spin off of flower!!!! I like that. It made me remember a C-Drama, A love So Beautiful. The two extras from that drama are the main female lead and second male lead of another C-Drama, Put Your Head on My Shoulder!

      And what if Ju Da is the villain in flower too!

      Ju Da is definitely self aware, she watches the clock turn counter clockwise like it’s nothing!

ExtraOrdinary You Ep.7 (13-14)

Poor Dan-Oh and Poor Do-Hwa, they are blaming themselves for HaRu disappearance. It\’s heart-breaking to see them calling the way they want to live their lives freely all the names; Ambition, Temptation and even Greed. Now I understand the saying; \”Ignorance is bliss\”. Because, sometimes, not knowing is not hurting. After all, they are just two 17-year-old high school kids and the only adult they can go to in this world is Jin Mi-Chae who has not been very much of help. Luckily, they still have each other and I\’m glad they become such good friends.

1

Now, HaRu, oh HaRu ya….
Mi-Chae is asking the exact question I\’m asking. Does he really lost his memory (and also his self-awareness) or is he just pretending? My interpretation would go for the latter. The look in his eyes is totally different from the HaRu I know. But there\’s something in him that still remain the same, maybe it\’s something called instinct. For example, I can see a glimpse of the old HaRu when he was sitting under the red-flower tree (and now we know its meaning; Waiting).

2

And now his character description makes some sense;
Follow Baek Kyung well
He does follow every inch of Baek Kyung character (before he gains awareness). From the clothes, the hair, the expression to his behavior (especially towards Dan-Oh). Interestingly, Baek Kyung has also changed to become what HaRu used to be. He dresses up properly at school with the tie and the tucked shirt. His words are softer than before. So to speak, they have become the mirror image of each other old self (well, to some degree in Kyung\’s case).

The question is how did all these changes happen? If they are from the Writer\’s action, are they supposed to be a punishment for those rebels who dare to defy god?? If not, then how and why???

Can\’t wait to see tonight episode. We are only halfway through and it\’s been an emotional roller coaster ride. It\’s hurtful and entertaining at the same time.

    I have to acknowledge and appreciate all these young actors who play their roles so well that their characters feel so real, like the real manhwa characters. I can feel their pains, their happiness, their loss, their insecurity. Even those extras like Se-Mi or Soo-Chul or Mo-Beom (his scene with Dan-Oh is amazing). Actor Lee Tae-Ri once make a commentary on one of their bts that There might be a small role, but there’s no small actor and that’s so true.

          if anything you can see how his body his drawn toward DO even if his mind have forgotten her. I find it so sad seeing how much he have goon true just to find Do but getting lost again to just appearing without memory… But I am not giving up on him just yet! If it is something he have show that is that he have a strong will. whatever writer have done to him I am sure his feelings for Do is stronger.

            YES! Do not lose hope! I trust that deep down he is still the same. It’s just this wicked mysterious high power who twists him into this Baek Kyung’s mini-me. He will be back, soon!

            Agreed! Of course he is the same! He’ll be back even better once he remembers. The soft hair instead of this too-neat hair, and the sweet smile. *cries* Haru-yaaaaa

Quick thought ExtraOrdinaryYou Ep7 (13-14)
Baek Kyung is just like Lee Hyuk (Empress\’s Dignity). I know he\’s a bastard and I loathe him. But any glimpse of kindness from him makes me swayed like a pendulum on full swing.

      This is how we say we HATE the push-pull relationship but still get tangled in one anyways. It feels wierdly satisfied (if that’s even a term to describe it).😍

    YES. Every time he does something bad, I’m like 🙁 but then he shows the tiniest shred of potential and my stupid heart melts.

the Tale of Nok-Du ep.6 (11-12)
Omo, so Yul-Moo oraboni is something even bigger than I expect. But the 180-degree character shift is so shocking. Does he have DID? And, if Nok-Du is not a prince himself, then this love triangle is going to be very dangerous considering how cold-blooded one can be.

Does Dong-Ju know his real identity? As a fiancée she should’ve known, but why sometimes acts like she doesn’t?

Something in Dong-Ju is frustrating to watch. It’s not that I don’t understand why she did what she did, still frustrating. She used to be more direct and outspoken. I wish to have the old Dong-Ju back. I really do.

    I don’t think anyone other than his secret assasin “friend” know who he is. Now I am not even sure if Madame knows his real identity. He is just the chill handsome Yeol Moo to everyone else.

Wahh, Kim Hye-Yoon and Kim Young-Dae worked together before in this short skit. He’s 180 degree differenct from Oh Nam-Joo. They’re cute.

Impressed that they can make a romantic comedy,a cute one, out of a money card ads.

The reason that one-sided love is like buying a lotto, there’s no point in calculating the probability

    Ahhh that explains why I saw a pic of them together and Hye Yoon’s comment was like “it’s been a while…” cuz Extraordinary You wasn’t the first time they worked together

    To win a lotto, you have to start with purchasing it.

    How can a 10-minute sketch have the potential to be either a lotto or a cafe or a money card commercial and also be a really cute romantic comedy at the same time?

According to ep7 (13-14) preview;

HaRu disappears and then shows up again being the same level extra character as Dan-Oh.

His description reads; HaRu (age 18) tennis team. Follows Baek Kyung well? (잘따른다).

Now what’s with that? Will they make him Kyung’s sidekick? And he seems cold towards Dan-Oh. Does he lose all the memories and also his self-awareness?

Also, Baek Kyung somewhat gives the bad guy’s vibe in the preview. He tries to persuade Dan-Oh to stick with him saying that he can change her fate and HaRu can’t. He’s the one tearing HaRu drawing notebook into the pool. Wonder if Dried Squiddy has anything to do with this?

Can next Wednesday come tomorrow? I’m dying.

When I saw this, I thought: NICE we\’re done with the wrist-grabbing.

But then…

WHY, dramlord? WHY?

Sidenote: I really hope HaRu could be more honest with Dan-Oh. If they are going to work together to change their fate, they have to trust each other and share info&plans. She has been doing that, but he seems to keep things to himself.

    It’s a tropes galore in there. Not that I’m complaining per se – anyone who has read shoujo manga & similar manhwa knows these tropes. It makes sense that these manhwa characters embody them. It’s a reminder that they are, in fact, manhwa characters & not real world people.

      I get it with Nam-Joo&Joo-Da, Baek Kyung&Dan-Oh. I Just hope HaRu would be different, especially after seeing him holding her hands.

        I definitely agree. The wrist grabs are out of character and just weird coming from Haru. The only justification I can think of is that they are in a manhwa – a pretty outdated one, at that.

    I literally just posted about that. The amount of wrist grabbing (and double wrist-grabbing) is staggering for a show intending to make fun of tropes.

      Let’s count how many times Dan-Oh has been and will be dragged-with-wrist-grabbed from the start to the end. At this rate, I think she might need to see her doctor for shoulder joint replacement.

      This though – I don’t think the show intends to make fun of tropes. Its just using them – sometimes as comedy sometimes as the norm.

    Also, has anyone count how many times HaRu says “let’s go” to Dan-Oh?

#theTaleofNokDu Ep5 (9-10)

Still enjoy watching, the comedic elements are killing me. And isn\’t Aeng-Doo adorable?


Look at those shoulders…hehe

Storywise, though, feels like they are not going anywhere. It would be better if we get both episodes this week since the end of ep10 is such a cliff-hanger. Pretty sure Dong-Joo will talk Yul-Moo into coorpating with them.

And Yul-Moo, running for his life PWAHAHAHA…I\’m dead.

    NokDu running after YulMoo is just hilarious haha and boy are they fast! Do you think they might have sped them up?

Baek Kyung, you bastard!

No wait..Writer or WHOEVER making Baek Kyung such a jerk, you are the worst.

His words: “I’m just toying with her” is the meanest thing. Though, he could just be messing with Ha-Ru.

Dan-Oh\’s: “I’ve never willingly liked you” is legit.

    They gave a glimpse of redemption in episode 12…and then they snatched it away!
    But Baek Kyung is a lot of wounded bravado.

      It’s amazing and at the same time frustrating how they construct Baek Kyung’s character. When I start to think he could be melting and become softer, they made him even worse than before with that smirk and harsh words toward Dan-Oh (esp. behind her back).

      We should get to see the ‘real’ him in the next episode. Let’s see how he’ll turn out to be. But considering the preview, I wouldn’t have my hope up too high. I honestly think he might be about the same.

Ok…time to RAVE~~~~

1. HaRu, you\’re such a player.


Who wouldn\’t swoon when you\’re being like this???? Dan-Oh\’s reaction is totally relatable.

2. HaRu / Dan-Oh / Do-Hwa would make an awesome love-triangle? Of course, Dan-Oh is the 3rd-wheel
HEE

3. I\’m loving this puppy.

Turns out he actually didn\’t know Dan-Oh is dying (my respect to you Doc, patient confidentiality still intact). Once he finds out, he becomes super nice to her.
