School 2017: Episode 13
Oh my gosh, this show. This show, y’all. It makes me so happy. Today the sentiment of reconciliation spreads across all of our characters—old friends and new, students and teachers, friends and crushes. With a web of love, friendship, and loyalty that strong, even the most corrupt and spidery of administrations doesn’t stand a chance.
EPISODE 13 RECAP
Tae-woon and Eun-ho beam at each other on the school steps, reveling in their first moments of being an official couple. Aw, their happy is making me happy.
Eun-ho goes home that night to find her parents drinking outside in celebration—they’ve tracked down the friend who ran off with their money! Mom and Dad explain that although he can’t return the money right away, he’s promised to pay it back little by little on the first day of each month.
At the words “first day,” however, Eun-ho giddily recalls that today is her first day as Tae-woon’s girlfriend. Hee. As Eun-ho giggles to herself, Mom and Dad stare at her in bemusement, misinterpreting her happiness as relief that they’ve found Dad’s friend.
In her room that night, Eun-ho practically melts in lovestruck glee as she reenacts every moment of the confession. Squealing in excitement, she rolls around in bed, tracing hearts into her pillow. Tae-woon, meanwhile, recalls the same scene very differently, stepping out of the shower with his shirt unbuttoned indecently and rocking out to Bangtan Boys’ “Boy in Luv” as he relives Eun-ho’s confession and does an embarrassing victory dance. LOL.
When Tae-woon calls Eun-ho that night, she answers shyly as she asks what he wants, clearly expecting a cute, romantic answer. In return, however, Tae-woon replies: “I want to order some chicken delivery.” HA. He coos that he misses chicken so much that he can’t sleep tonight if he doesn’t get chicken. Eun-ho threatens to beat him with a chicken leg and hangs up, muttering to herself: “Chicken? Ha!”
Cut to: Eun-ho sneaking into the kitchen to steal some chicken for Tae-woon. Unfortunately, Eun-ho’s brother catches her red-handed, and starts to tattle to Mom until Eun-ho quickly bribes him to stay quiet.
When she sneaks out of the house with the chicken in hand, however, Tae-woon is already waiting outside the restaurant with a knowing grin. Flustered, Eun-ho insists that she was just on a delivery elsewhere, but he sees right through her lie.
She pouts, telling him not to tease her like that, but he suddenly cuts her off. “I wanted to see you,” he says. Cradling her face in his hands, Tae-woon continues, “I couldn’t sleep because I wanted to see you so much. I wanted to see… the chicken, so much.” LOL.
Exasperated, Eun-ho starts to throw punches in his direction, but he catches her by the wrists and teases her some more until they’re half-wrestling, half-dancing in a fit of giggles. Ahhhhh so cute.
In voiceover, Sa-rang says: “Relationships between people tell you what kind of person they are. As someone once said, ‘Relationships start to crack not from big incidents, but from trivial misunderstandings.'” As Sa-rang narrates, we see Eun-ho get up from her seat to reach out to her new friend Bo-ra, while Sa-rang and Young-gun watch the interaction in discomfited silence.
The next morning, Sa-rang and her mother watch Tae-woon push Eun-ho against the wall behind the school. They’re only flirting, bickering about just exactly how handsome he is—but to Sa-rang from afar, it looks like he’s bullying her. Horrified for Eun-ho’s safety, Sa-rang grabs a broom and charges at Tae-woon, yelling at him to stop bothering her friend. LOL.
Eun-ho hurries to stop Sa-rang from attacking him, mortified as she confesses that Tae-woon is her boyfriend. At Eun-ho’s words, Tae-woon turns up his swagger and smirks at Sa-rang, repeating, “Boyfriend.” Ha.
Eun-ho finally spills everything to Sa-rang, explaining that Tae-woon was actually X all along, and that they started dating yesterday. Eun-ho apologizes for having kept such big secrets for so long, but Sa-rang just asks if Tae-woon is a good guy. When Eun-ho immediately goes on and on about every one of his good qualities, Sa-rang smiles sadly as she listens.
Later that day, Sa-rang goes to the gang’s hideout for the first time, only to find that Dae-hwi and Bo-ra are already familiar with the place. As she watches Dae-hwi and Bo-ra study and Eun-ho tease Tae-woon about a picture she drew of him, poor Sa-rang sighs to herself, looking awfully lonely and left out.
In the classroom, Bit-na’s rich friends ask Nam-joo about her dad’s company again. Nam-joo nervously avoids answering, but when she asks why they’re asking, they reply nastily, “We just wanted to see how much you made up.” Eep.
Bit-na glares at Nam-joo, asking if she really thought they wouldn’t find out about her lies. Dae-hwi walks in at that moment and demands to know what’s going on. The rich kids tell him that they did nothing wrong before announcing to the whole class that Nam-joo is a liar.
Humiliated beyond words, Nam-joo scurries out of the room in tears, with Dae-hwi hot on her tail. He tries to tell her that the truth was bound to come out anyway, but Nam-joo tells him to buzz off, and that she’s fine with dropping out of this horrible school.
Dae-hwi returns to the classroom to find the rich kids hanging outside the door, gossiping about Nam-joo. When one of them stops Dae-hwi to ask whether he broke up with her because of her lies, Dae-hwi grabs him by the collar in fury: “Is this fun for you?” he growls. He threatens to kill them if they run their mouths again.
As Dae-hwi storms away, Tae-woon slams into the kids from behind, offering an insincere apology in return. When they confront him, however, Tae-woon immediately challenges them: “Want to try me?” Damn. The rich kids quickly back down, and Tae-woon returns to his seat, giving Dae-hwi a comforting pat on the back as he passes. So sweet.
Later, Tae-woon finds Dae-hwi on a bench outside and tosses him a cold drink. Sitting beside him in silence, Tae-woon consoles him with his silent companionship.
Officer Han runs into Young-gun with her rebel friends that day, reminding her that it’s time for work. Young-gun starts to refuse, but finally gives in when Officer Han threatens to blab about their smoking habits.
Just as Young-gun starts to leave with Officer Han, however, Bo-ra runs into her on the steps. Bo-ra commends Young-gun for allegedly catching a purse-snatcher, but Young-gun just snaps at her not to speak to her before storming away. As Bo-ra sighs in disappointment, Officer Han applauds her valiant attempt and encourages her to keep trying: “If you keep knocking, the door will open someday,” she says.
Sa-rang trudges home at the end of the day, looking as depressed and lonely as ever. Thankfully, Kyung-woo catches up to her, ruffling her hair and noting her bad mood. Seeing Issue walking by at that moment, Kyung-woo tells her that he knows exactly what will help. As Sa-rang watches, Kyung-woo hurries up to Issue to declare that he needs him. Issue blinks at him in confusion.
Cut to: an irritated Issue, watching Sa-rang and Kyung-woo enjoy their drinks at a café. LOL. When Issue asks if he really has to sit here all day, Kyung-woo says, “You can stand if you want.” Issue complains about Kyung-woo’s rude treatment, but Kyung-woo and Sa-rang tell him that all of her worries are melting away because of him.
Kyung-woo asks if Sa-rang is feeling better, and she thanks him with a smile. “You really have a talent for making people feel comfortable,” she tells him. As they smile at each other, poor Issue just glares at them, demanding to know what he’s actually doing there. Lol.
Dae-hwi waits outside Nam-joo’s house until she comes home, but quickly hides before she sees him. He watches in concern as she goes inside.
At lunch the next day, Eun-ho complains that the school lunches seem to be getting smaller and smaller, groaning that she’s craving something delicious to eat. Tae-woon immediately jumps at that, calling her shameless for saying such a thing in front of the others: “You’re obviously asking me to buy you something delicious tomorrow, just the two of us, since it’s the weekend!”
Eun-ho hisses at him to shut up, but Tae-woon just stands, loudly telling her to dress up tomorrow before leaving. Hee. Eun-ho stares in embarrassment before chasing after him to beat him up. At the table, Bo-ra smiles at their antics before turning to see Sa-rang looking lonely and depressed again. Aw, baby.
The next day, Eun-ho does her best to dress up for her date with Tae-woon, trying on all sorts of makeup and hairstyles she’s not used to. When she finally gets the hang of it, she smiles at the mirror in satisfaction.
Tae-woon waits for Eun-ho outside when her brother comes by, noting that Tae-woon has been hanging around their house a lot lately and telling him to raise his standards, lol. Just then, Eun-ho comes out of the house, all dolled up, and Tae-woon stares at her slack-jawed and speechless. So. Cute.
After watching a movie together, Tae-woon makes Eun-ho hold the popcorn and both their drinks as they walk back so that he can put his arm around her. When she asks why she has to hold everything, Tae-woon leans over to kiss her on the cheek, telling her: “This is why.”
Flustered by his smooth moves, Eun-ho scurries away in embarrassment, grinning from ear to ear while wailing that they’re moving too fast, ha.
They play a street darts game for prizes, and Tae-woon misses every target while Eun-ho hits every one. He pouts and insists that it’s because he’s not concentrating, while Eun-ho wins a teddy bear prize and rubs it in his face, hee.
Afterward, Tae-woon drives them to peaceful, secluded park on his motorcycle. When Eun-ho asks where they are, Tae-woon explains that it’s where his mother is. He shows her a tall tree with a sign bearing his mother’s name, telling her that she’d died when he was young and that he’d promised his father that they’d only visit her on very happy days. Eun-ho smiles at the implication that today is one of those days.
Standing before the tree, Tae-woon tells Eun-ho to introduce herself to his mother. When she introduces herself by name, Tae-woon silently mouths to the tree: She’s my girlfriend! Awww.
As Eun-ho and Tae-woon sit in the sunny, breezy park, she drifts asleep against his shoulder. Tae-woon smiles at her, stroking away strands of her hair from her face as she sleeps.
At school the next day, Dae-hwi turns to stare at Nam-joo’s empty desk beside him. Eun-ho catches his melancholy expression and sighs to herself.
At lunchtime, Byung-gu heaps praises on X for getting rid of the rank system for lining up to eat lunch. As the others laugh awkwardly at his mention of X, Tae-woon brushes it off, snorting that at least they were well-fed before X showed up. At that, Eun-ho notes that today’s food tastes funny, but no one else seems to notice anything suspicious.
It seems Eun-ho’s suspicions weren’t for naught, however. That afternoon, she clutches her stomach in pain, her skin breaking out in hives. Just as Eun-ho raises her hand to excuse herself, Byung-gu beats her to it and excuses himself to hurry out to the bathroom. Tae-woon quietly notices Eun-ho clutching her stomach in pain.
That afternoon, Sa-rang’s mom notes the lunch workers take off for the day, carelessly tossing the trash outside. Annoyed by their carelessness, Sa-rang’s mom starts to take care of the boxes herself when she notes discarded food wrappers with long-expired dates on them. She stares at them in horror.
Clutching the garbage and proof of the expired food, Sa-rang’s mom frantically barges into Principal Yang’s office to show him the expiration dates of the food served today. But Principal Yang just tells her to mind her own business as a cleaning lady and to stop wasting his time. She quietly leaves.
That evening, Eun-ho’s family frets over her hives and food poisoning, wondering if something was wrong with the school lunch. Dad notes that there are reports of expired school cafeteria food on the news recently, and Eun-ho agrees that lunch has been meager recently.
The next morning, Sa-rang’s mom returns to Principal Yang’s office with the food wrappers, this time dressed in formal clothing instead of her cleaning uniform. She declares that she’s here as a parent, not an employee, and insists that he promise to conduct a formal investigation.
Principal Yang tells her that she has no right to complain against the school that pays her, adding that something bad could happen to Sa-rang if she keeps this up. Shaken by the veiled threat, Sa-rang’s mom immediately hurries out. Watching her leave in disapproval, Principal Yang notes that she’ll be an even bigger pain if he fires her, and picks up the phone to call the cleaning company. Oh no.
Sa-rang’s mom starts to leave when she runs into her supervisor. He thanks her for her hard work before offering her a fat envelope full of money, calling it a bonus. She starts to refuse him before he suddenly urges her not to mess with the system. Reminding her about Sa-rang’s well-being in a roundabout way, he forces the money onto her, hurrying away before she can give it back. Sa-rang’s mom stares after him in shock and horror, speechless at the condescending treatment.
At the hideout that afternoon, Sa-rang tells the others that all of the lunch food was expired. Bo-ra realizes that Eun-ho’s sickness yesterday must have been because of the expired food, and Eun-ho turns to see Tae-woon deep in thought.
That evening, Tae-woon goes to his father to ask him to investigate the food service company. Director Hyun, however, tells him that there’s no problem—the food company that serves their school is a long-time business partner of his. (Of course it is.)
Tae-woon buys Eun-ho a sandwich for lunch the next day because she’s uncomfortable with eating the school lunch. She worries that the other kids might get sick as well, and Tae-woon agrees that they can’t just sit idly by.
That night, Tae-woon sneaks into the school dressed as X. Just as he heads into the cafeteria, however, someone grabs him by the shoulder—it’s Dae-hwi, Eun-ho, Bo-ra, and Sa-rang, all dressed in black X hoodies! Aw, yesss. Eun-ho scolds him for trying to do this alone, and Tae-woon calls them a bother, though he’s grinning at them.
Our five Xs sneak into the kitchen, digging through the refrigerators to find piles and piles of expired food. Plugging their noses in disgust, they find packages over a year old and take video recordings of all of their findings.
Unfortunately, Dae-hwi backs up to get a better camera angle when he accidentally knocks over a ladle, creating a loud disturbance. Oh no.
Sure enough, Officer Han and Young-gun are on patrol nearby when they freeze at the sound. They hurry toward the kitchen, and our five Xs hurry to take cover. As Tae-woon and Eun-ho squeeze between the refrigerators, she stammers that he’s too close, while Tae-woon just quips that it’s extra nice being X today.
The kids hold their breath as Officer Han shines her flashlight through the kitchen. She comes closer and closer… until Young-gun finds the ladle on the floor. Appeased by the explanation for the sound, Officer Han and Young-gun finally leave.
As soon as they’re gone, the five Xs regroup to catch their breath. When Tae-woon notes that his heart was racing, Sa-rang wonders why he was so nervous when he’s done this so many times before. Tae-woon just gives Eun-ho a suggestive grin. Lol.
Dae-hwi suggests that they leave now while the coast his clear, but Tae-woon shakes his head: “We wouldn’t be X if we just left, right?” he smirks.
The next day, the kitchen staff finds the rotten, expired food strewn all over the kitchen, accompanied with a note written in ketchup: “Don’t play with food. -X” Hee, brilliant. As an enraged Principal Yang takes in the scene in fury, cursing X, Vice Principal Park informs him that they have more dire problems than the state of the kitchen—namely, the slew of delivery people here with dozens of boxes of restaurant lunches.
The delivery people crowd into Principal Yang’s office, filling the room with box after box of takeout food and demanding that he pay up. When a livid Principal Yang insists that he didn’t order the food, they insist that the number came from the school, and that the customer even had the same way of speaking as Principal Yang. Ha.
And so every student in the school ends up getting a bowl of delicious jajangmyun, rejoicing at the unexpected treat. When Dae-hwi asks Tae-woon what happened, he just brushes it off, simply noting that it’s nice to have good food. In flashback, however, we see that Tae-woon had been the one to call for delivery, making the call from Principal Yang’s office (and flawlessly adopting his way of speech).
Tae-woon tells his friends to eat a lot before teasing Eun-ho for eating too much. Eun-ho smiles cutely back at him and asks, “But I’m pretty even when I eat a lot, right?” Lol, I love her.
Meanwhile, Officer Han gives Teacher Shim an earful in private, insisting that the school is a mess and that they can’t just sit by while X destroys the school. Teacher Shim panics at that, insisting that innocent kids will get hurt if it’s revealed that X is the director’s son. Officer Han, however, snaps that they can only know the consequences when they occur, and begs him to think about things from her perspective.
Principal Yang, meanwhile, is busy getting an earful of his own from Director Hyun. The director snaps that parents are most sensitive about food issues, and that the school won’t be able to recover if they take a fall. He orders the principal to find a solution at any cost, even if it means hiring special security forces to catch X.
So Principal Yang recruits Vice Principal Park to fix the issue of the students’ distrust in the administration, reminding him that it’s the only way for them to ensure their safety—otherwise, X might reveal that they and Director Hyun are colluding with the food company. Ugh. Vice Principal Park assures him that he has a plan.
The next day, the students rejoice to see that lunch is a gourmet meal filled with expensive, fresh ingredients. As everyone bustles excitedly at the sight, Principal Yang strolls through the cafeteria with a hearty smile, encouraging the students to eat a lot and study hard.
At the 180 degree turn, our five Xs wonder if they overreacted before. But Tae-woon notes that the school’s unnecessarily kind treatment only makes him feel even more distrustful.
That night, Officer Han patrols the school grounds with Young-gun when they run into Bo-ra outside. Bo-ra quickly explains that she was just studying, but Officer Han asks her to patrol with them for a little exercise.
Without a choice, Bo-ra follows them into the teacher’s office, where Officer Han offers to buy them a snack. When she happens to pull a pair of handcuffs out of her pocket, Bo-ra asks if they’re real, and Officer Han offers to show her. She places the cuffs on Bo-ra’s and Young-gun’s wrists before suddenly realizing that she forgot the keys at the station. Hee. Horrified, Young-gun insists that they go with her to get the keys, but Officer Han waves her off and tells the girls to wait while she fetches the keys.
As an irritated Young-gun and an awkward Bo-ra sit alone in the office, coming to terms with their forced proximity, Officer Han strolls through the halls, pulling out the key from her pocket with a grin: “You have to be together to make up, right?”
As Young-gun yanks her hand away from Bo-ra in annoyance, Bo-ra tells her that she’s fine with the situation since Young-gun would never talk to her otherwise. Weathering all of Young-gun’s insults, Bo-ra tells her that she’s glad she did what she did back then: “If I had the chance to go back, I would do it again.”
Young-gun growls at her to shut up, but Bo-ra continues that betraying her was worth it if it meant saving Young-gun’s life. We learn that Bo-ra had gone to the police to prevent Young-gun from getting into a life-threatening fight—an incident that branded Young-gun a delinquent. Still, Bo-ra insists, Young-gun’s situation now is better than becoming a convicted felon after participating in the fight.
Young-gun stands in fury to retort when Bo-ra’s nose suddenly begins to bleed. At the sight of the blood, Young-gun immediately leads Bo-ra to the bathroom so she can clean up. Young-gun bunches up some tissues and starts to help her out of habit, before catching herself and stuffing the tissues into Bo-ra’s hands for her to do herself.
In flashback, we see that helping Bo-ra with her frequent nosebleeds used to be a routine thing back in the day. In the present, Bo-ra smiles at Young-gun, reminiscing about their history together. Young-gun scowls back.
Teacher Shim runs into the girls as they leave the bathroom, immediately horrified to see the handcuffs around their wrists. When they explain that Officer Han left her key at the station, Teacher Shim notes in confusion that he just saw her in the office. Realizing what she’s done, he quickly leads the girls back to the teachers’ office to free them.
Sure enough, Officer Han is sitting comfortably in the office, browsing her phone, lol. Young-gun confronts Officer Han, but she just brushes it off, asking if anything has changed between them. Bo-ra smiles, saying she was happy with how things went, and Officer Han releases the girls with a knowing look.
Officer Han tells Young-gun to escort Bo-ra home as part of her job as her assistant, and Young-gun scowls back before hurrying out. Bo-ra follows after her.
Once they’re alone, a perturbed Teacher Shim demands to know how Officer Han could treat their students like criminals. But Officer Han argues that the right methods differ for different people, snapping that his incessant criticisms are offensive to her before turning to leave.
At that, Teacher Shim grabs her and immediately apologizes, looking distressed: “I don’t know why I keep acting like this,” he says. “I want to see you smile all the time, but I always make you angry, and it ends up hurting me.” Aww.
At that, Officer Han cuts him off, stepping close so they’re only inches apart, and asks: “Are you apologizing to me, or are you confessing your feelings?” He falls silent, and she takes the chance to kiss him on the cheek right next to his lips before coolly walking off. Omo. Poor Teacher Shim touches his cheek where she kissed him, and then falls over in shock. LOL.
The next morning, Tae-woon notes Eun-ho walking with a depressed-looking Sa-rang and asks what happened. Eun-ho explains that Principal Yang punished Sa-rang’s mom for complaining about the food.
Tae-woon agrees that something is fishy about the administration, guessing that the suddenly improved food quality must be a temporary front until things calm down. Tae-woon decides that they need to punish them once and for all and teach them not to play with their food.
Eun-ho, however, expressly forbids him to act as X, reminding him that Principal Yang is watching like a hawk lately. He starts to brush off her concern, but Eun-ho is adamant, yelling at him not to do anything. At her unexpected anger, Tae-woon meekly agrees.
Eun-ho goes to the empty hideout that night and calls Tae-woon with no luck. She guesses that he must not have listened to her after all, and sure enough, she opens the cabinet drawer to find Tae-woon’s black hoodie missing. She opens the next drawer, however, and finds a spare. Oh boy.
Both Tae-woon and Eun-ho sneak into the school, each dressed as X. When Tae-woon slips into the cafeteria, however, he’s suddenly surrounded by three security guards. Though Tae-woon tries his best to fight them off and get away, he’s outnumbered and overpowered, and though it takes all three of them, they finally pin him down. Eun-ho hears sounds of the struggle and sprints toward the cafeteria.
As they wrestle Tae-woon to the ground, Principal Yang steps forward, giddy that he’s finally caught X. Principal Yang slowwwwly reaches down to peel back Tae-woon’s hood… as Tae-woon grits his teeth helplessly, and Eun-ho stares in horror from the doorway.
Oh boy, oh boy! I’m thoroughly impressed by how the writers have used the Suspect X plot throughout the story, especially because I’d been concerned with the unexpectedly fast resolution of the mystery in the early stages of the show. But seeing Eun-ho, Tae-woon, Dae-hwi, Bo-ra, and Sa-rang all working together as X in the name of justice in this episode, I was reminded once again of how well this show seems to understand its own story and its trajectory.
It’s funny to remember that X had been nothing more than a faceless figurehead that the students could use as stress relief and gossip fodder, because now, for our main characters, X has become a symbol of their hopes, dreams, and beliefs. At this point, X isn’t external to them—he represents an idea of the often childishly idealistic world they want and deserve to live in. If X (that is, Tae-woon) is caught now, every single one of our characters has something at stake, because each one of them has started to internalize X. I don’t know what Eun-ho plans to do now, but with friends like hers to support her, I do know that no one will be sinking alone—and that’s all I could wish for.
Speaking of friends, I’m totally pleased to see Bo-ra blooming into a happier girl after seeing her miserable for so many episodes. I think that only after becoming friends with Eun-ho and company was she able to regain her confidence as a person, which is why it makes sense that her relationship with Young-gun was only brought up now. The show has become better and better at introducing subplots and backstories, something I’d thought was weak and often awkward in the first few episodes.
Thanks to that renewed strength, I find that almost every character—major or minor, teacher or student—is utilized to their full potential in this show, even the ones I’d thought insignificant or uninteresting in the beginning. It speaks to the show’s assured writing that it uses its very subplots to thread other subplots together. Bo-ra’s meekness and lack of friends ties in with Young-gun’s rebelliousness, which ties into Officer Han’s backstory as a problematic youth, and so on and so forth. While I should really come to expect that kind of interwoven narrative quality from School 2017 at this point, it continues to surprise me with the sheer amount of heart it has left to give.
I especially loved Sa-rang’s voiceover narration in this episode, in which she explained that a rift in a relationship doesn’t usually come from a big incident, but from a small misunderstanding. It reflects beautifully on the progress we’ve made (and stand to make in the final few episodes) on our character development. Just like how Dae-hwi and Tae-woon misunderstood each other’s emotions surrounding Joon-ki’s death, and how Bo-ra and Young-gun misunderstood each other’s priorities, it seems that all of our characters harbor or have harbored those misunderstandings about each other. Even now, those misunderstandings present the biggest obstacles for our classmates: Sa-rang believes that Eun-ho values her less now that she’s found a boyfriend, while Nam-joo believes that no one will accept her unless she’s a rich young socialite. Sometimes, it’s not even a matter of a lack of communication that’s the problem, but an internal struggle that we have to overcome on our own. And what better a time is there than eighteen to struggle with the internal self?
It sounds corny, but I really think that forming this alliance of trust, love, and friendship between each other is the only antidote to fighting the kind of distrust that stems from material valuation of each other. As Principal Yang and Director Hyun crumble under the weight of their own corruption, and Bit-na and her flying monkeys—I mean, friends—see that their relationships are based on appearances rather than feelings, we see that the only ones to survive are the ones who trust and believe in each other. In a way, School 2017 is the perfect idealistic show—full of childish hope, combined with the real-world problems we face every day. It might not be as easy to solve our personal issues in the real world as it is in dramaland, but the lessons are all there, and they’ve never felt more honest.
