Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 11-12 Open Thread

We’ve reached the point in our story where the truth is out in the open. Secrets are revealed, lovers are forced apart, and though they might understand each other, there are still many barriers to their relationship. But thanks to all the people on their side of the court, all is not yet lost.

 
EPISODES 11-12 WEECAP

As we learned last week, Lala has found out about Joon’s true age/identity, and indeed, told his mother where they were meeting. He’s dragged away (agh, the pain of this twice!), and we jump a month in the future.

Lala has a new sleek hairdo, and is busy eating, dancing, and keeping busy (almost manically), so she doesn’t have to dwell on Joon. Joon, on the other hand, is literally being kept under lock and key by his mother, like a reverse rapunzel, chained to his ivory tower. His elaborate escape ladder from the beginning of the show makes a whole lot of sense now, because that’s actually what it would take for him to get away again. Or maybe an eagle can come and carry him away back to Eunpo? Joon has no phone, he refuses to eat, and he’s steamrolled into being a studying machine, told that his future is on the line.

This month apart is difficult on our hearts, and it’s a rough separation because they never got to talk, Joon never got to tell her the truth himself or explain, etc. After multiple escape attempts, he finally manages to send her a love letter in the shape of sheet music for their song, “The Pleasure of Love.” What a nice touch.

Though this parting and sadness suck, the sweet genius of Do Do Sol Sol comes to our rescue here, and while we’re enduring this pain, we are treated to more of Joon and Lala acting out haraboji’s romance with his wife.

Yes, Show! It’s as if they heard me last week, squealing over what a lovely touch this was, so they decided to continue it just for me — and make it even better. And so, we watch our historical couple fall in love, and even share their first kiss to the meaningful song that haraboji is learning to play. (Lee Jae-wok is so supremely swoon-worthy in this scene! Hang on, I need a moment to collect myself.)

Anyway, this couple also has to endure their own painful parting, and the echo between both storylines is such a nice touch. There’s something about this re-enactment that just makes my heart melt.

Haraboji’s story helps Lala endure her own parting with Joon, and he also assures her of what she already knows: Joon is Joon. She might not have known about him, but she knows who he is. I love this distinction.

Our crew of supporting characters just get richer by the episode, and I flat-out adore all of them. For instance, our thug Min-soo is visiting Sook-kyung’s salon frequently, clearly sweet on her. They’re teased relentlessly by the TWD ladies, and this whole thing is so innocent and sweet – just like the drama itself.

But it’s Seung-gi and Ha-young who are the real heroes this week. They can’t take the radio silence from Joon anymore, and march off to Seoul, intimidated but determined to see him. With their willingness to help, and Joon’s clever plan, he fakes passing out, meets them at the ER, and then has Seung-gi switch places with him for the day so he can escape to Eunpo. It might not be the most realistic of plot devices, but I don’t mind, because I’m definitely not watching this show for realism — I’m watching it for the adorable little world it’s created.

The friendship between Joon, Seung-gi, and Ha-young is even more fun now that they know they’re all the same age, and I needed the giggle from their patient replacement antics, because harabogi’s piano recital and beautiful narration about his wife had me crying. This drama is precious.

Joon is on the run again, and has a one-track mind: Lala. Their swift reunion was satisfying in that it wasn’t drawn out, and they talk, explain, and share everything that needed to be said, from his age, to his inadvertent lie, to Lala being his best friend’s first love. We even get a nice moment for Lala to properly thank Joon for saving her from the insane stalker. But, because all parties are now aware that Joon is a minor, Lala refuses his kiss. Well, it’s implied instead of stated, but it’s clear enough.

Now that they’ve said what they needed to say and resolved their misunderstandings, our couple is at peace. Joon agrees to go back to Seoul and continue his studies, and Lala waits for him at Eunpo. We see a new super-studious Joon, who’s now free to contact Lala since he’s towing the line. But soon, he starts to prioritize her safety over his studies (how dare he!) and Joon’s mother tells Lala that they need to meet. (Aside: Hats off to Seo Yi-sook here — she’s a suffocating nightmare as Joon’s mother, and yet the polar opposite as the warm and intuitive Director Yoon in Start-Up!)

It’s actually a brilliant scene, first with Sook-kyung and the TWD ladies imagining all possible scenarios (from dramas, of course) for this Joon’s mom/Lala meeting. Then, the story goes up another level and actually has them turn up at the coffee shop according to their drama scenarios, and they’re ready to block Lala from glasses of water, kimchi slaps, and the fated envelope of money. I love how the drama makes jokes about tropes, and even though this is a serious scene, it’s funny too, because it’s Lala that passes the envelope of money to Joon’s mother, repaying her debt.

Funniness aside, this scene is crucial, because Lala has to be convinced that Joon is better off without her, at least right now. Part of this is hammered in by the same element having played out in haraboji’s love story, but the other part of it is because Joon’s mom goes from helicopter parent of doom, into an actual mother. And we get a sudden look into her perspective.

There’s the sweetest flashback of her with Joon as a young boy, talking about the joy he brought to them, and how hard it was for her to get pregnant. Okay, I forgive her a little. And I can even understand Lala (a little), and why she’s willing to renounce Joon so he can be “successful.”

Now it’s Lala’s turn to write a letter, and then disappear into the mist. Joon is heartbroken, and I’m right behind him, but don’t worry — we have it as a guarantee from haraboji’s own story that multiple partings don’t mean heartbreak: fate will bring these two soulmates together again.

Dr. Cha is finally growing on me, and he cheers Lala on while telling her that she “healed” him from his unhappiness. Interestingly, he uses a lot of the same language Joon did during his confession, but thankfully Dr. Cha refrains from that angle. Lala thanks him — and then thanks him for being Dodosolsolalasol. Hooray, that identity is confirmed. I’m happy with this low-key confirmation scene, and also the gratefulness between them.

And so, six months go by. Our couple is separated and out of touch, but I know they’ll be together soon. Right? I admit at this point, the pacing of the drama is confusing me at tad: if Joon and Lala are clearly soulmates and know it, what conflict is left to resolve for two more weeks? Dr. Cha/benefactor mystery? Solved. Stalker plot line? Dispatched. It seems the only thing left is just to talk some sense into Joon’s uptight family, and let our lovebirds be the legal lovebirds that they now can be. Because thanks to Seung-gi and Ha-young, we learn that they’re all now legal adults.

So, will our final two weeks be about overcoming the final impediments to our couple being together? I’m not complaining, as I will gladly watch all of these characters just existing for fifty more episodes (and in fact, I almost wish I could) — but it also looks like Do Do Sol Sol has some final pranks in store for us. At least, this jaw-dropping ending had better be a prank!

We see Lala all dressed up for her wedding. All of Eunpo is there, involved, and happily participating… and then Dr. Cha puts a ring on Lala’s finger. OMG! We all know this is 100% impossible, so even though my jaw is on the floor, I’m sure it’s just a trick. Trick me, fool me, prank me, it’s fine. It’s all worth it to see Joon running onto the scene and grabbing Lala for an epic runaway bride moment. I hope they elope. I mean, as long as she didn’t just really marry Dr. Cha.

So I have really loved this show from the beginning and still do- Man-bok's story and his recital put tears in my eyes. Ra-ra's selling her car and handing an envelope of money to Joon's mom was another wonderful moment.

But then the wedding at the end of episode 12 and Joon's abduction of the bride left me dumbfounded. Not least because we know that Dr. Cha is in fact sick. I have enjoyed the ride so far and will continue to watch but this left me wanting to pound my head against the wall.

I hope the show can pull a few rabbits out of the hat. For the moment color me confused- and bemused.

Suspect that they did that fake wedding for some kind of business of Seung Gi and Ha-young as they looked quite despleased and little annoyed the moment they were filming was ruined and if it was real makes Ra Ra's love for Jun cheap or little...

Yes, after a bit of confusion..I also jumped to this conclusion, that Ha-young and Seung Gi are doing a promotional video for their business since before the wedding scene they were asking their moms to accept their business proposal

I believe the wedding stunt is for Seunggi and Hayeong's new business. I watched this one with my friend and were wondering what possible act they were trying to pull, then I had the sudden idea of Wedding Organizer business of our beloved business partners/couple (I know they are not couple yet, but I trust they will be).

Seunggi is the videographer, Hayeong will take care of the decoration and makeups. The drama was slow this week, but it still didn't fail to warm my heart. I love the Eunpo squad so much, including the new member, Minsoo, who does couple look with Sookkyung all along the episode.

Keep this warmth, show!

I love Seung Gi and Ha Yeong, I hope there's a resolution to HY's budding feelings for him, and his obvious one's for her!!! They were my favourite part honestly of the last two episodes. Their friendship with not only each other but also with Lala and Jun. They're the best adorable trouble makers.

I also suspect it's for their new business. I thought it was weird that we never got to hear what that business was when they were proposing it to their moms. Usually, the writer would try to make a joke out of it by making it as very weird business idea, like tutus for ostriches or something like that.

I love the Eunpo squad so much! And I squeed when Director Chu said he was from Eunpo and thinking about staying there to start a business. I wonder if he invested in Hayeong and Seunggi's idea.

I think the wedding is a troll. Like it's not a real wedding. As many have said, it's likely to be related to Seung Gi and Ha Young's business idea, since Seung Gi is always filming things and they made a deliberate note of showing him filming the "wedding". @mschoiyu summed it up nicely.

It's gonna be like Shopping King Louis where they pulled ANOTHER "amnesia", but it was fake. That was around the same episode mark too lol.

Plus literally everyone in the drama ships Jun and Lala lol. Imagine the retcon it'd be if it were real pffffffffft.

I don't remember what it was, but there was an epic fake-out in Shopping King Louis as well, so this is probably that (fingers crossed).

I thought it was silly for Joon to be waiting for 'fate' to have them meet again after Lala left him. Why not just contact her when he's 20? He knows her number and where she lives, lol. No reason to wait until he coincidentally hears she's getting married.

Anyway, just like you said, missvictrix, I'm waiting to see what the next conflict is to fill 4 episodes. Hopefully it'll be fun!

i dont like how these people didnt talk to Joon Properly. his mom could have talk to him ask for understanding ask him to study for now, tell him that he is precious instead talk to Rara. Rara could have talked and said in front of him, not disappear in the middle of date (ugh i hate it so much) Joon ALWAYS give her everything she wants. she knows this way will break his heart but she did it anyway is ridiculous for me.

I agree. I see a lot of comments here regarding Ra-Ra's decision being a sign of her maturity. But her stealing his agency does not show maturity to me. This is another noble idiot move. If the writer wanted them apart because of their difference in age it could have been done differently. His care towards her being an issue and interrupting his academic goals rings false. He was missing for a year and apparently is such a good student he was able to catch up in a month. So... his missing a day to check up on her or even his relationship with her does not come across as enough of a barrier to his learning. Especially since his having been able to see her was the catalyst for his going back to studying. Ra-Ra's choice is also disappointing in that she has no reason to assume she knows better than he does. 1. In regards to his family life, (since she has few details nor did he ever really fully explain why he ran away). 2. In handling his future. This is especially true since this whole show started off with Joon taking care of her when she being an adult had no idea how to take care of herself. He had already proven that he was mature enough to consider his own future and provide for himself. She was a 24 year old living off of a 19 year old. She doesn't have a leg to stand on in assuming she knows better than he does what is best for his own life. His mother I understand. But Ra-Ra's actions smack of taking away another's personal agency and I never like that trope.

This show from the outset has had the same issue. Every time we hit a road bump it shows itself in different guises - but at its core it is the same issue.

RaRa has and remains essentially self-centred where the entire world revolves around her and normal rules don't really apply to her (when she wishes).

I love the fluff that is this show, but when Man-bok gave his concert and we learnt the back story of the "Maiden's Prayer", ooof, we had a moment of gravitas. Man-bok's line that he never minded his wife forgetting everything apart from that music in her dementia because he was a part of that memory - what a stunningly beautiful way to remember her and to honour her memory by learning to play the piece.

I too think we are being duped and the wedding was not real. It probably has something to do with Seung-gi and Ha-Young's business proposal since we never got to hear their business idea and their reaction when Jun took Ra Ra was not happy. As Jun's friends I'm pretty sure they would cheer him on, not act dissapointed that he showed up. I'm thinking the wedding was a promo event/trial for whatever their business is. I just don't think Ra Ra would marry Dr Cha so quick. Anyway, I enjoy the show. Haraboji's love story was nice and on a totally superficial note, Lee Jae-wook looked really good as Man-Book, the 60's look suits him.

If that wedding was even real Jun should actually let Ra Ra go as clearly her love for him amounted to those months and nothing more aside that she was already married unlike the first time...
Still gotta say that they really wanted to make a point with 3ed is a charm for Ra Ra and marriage...
Also,could they stop saying she is a divorcee and such as the girl didn't even marry legally nor in the eyes of God...

I'm curious how Lala could pay her debt to Jun. She doesn't have more students. She never counted how much she owed him. She has to pay fees for her room and food. It wasn't a small amount between the car, the hospital for her, the hospital for Mimi and the rest. I mean at this point, making a bank transfer seems safer than an envelope.

The ahjummas are so funny imagining these scenarios.

Ha-Young and Seug-Ki's scenes are my favourite : the way they went to Seoul to meet Jun, there are the ones who take care of Ra-Ra, their glasses to make more serious when they annouced they won't go to college :p

She explained that she sold her beloved car. And a bank transfer would have been invisible. An envelope of cash for Jun's mother was a trope-busting moment. Hooray for Ra-ra for not taking money from the enemy. She really has grown up.

I don't see how the car only could repay all the debt. But I'm happy she finally did what she should have done way before.

The mother is not the ennemy. She sucks in communication with her son but she's not wrong about Jun being too young. Both of them have to be more mature before being a couple for me.

It was explained previously that the car was worth more than what she owed Jun. Whether or not this is true irl is irrelevant- the show said it was more than enough. It was a minor plot point in like Episode 5 or 6 or something.

Personally, I think it's not irrelevant for the growth of her character. I never can take her seriously because everything is too easy for her. But I don't really like or dislike her, I just watch this drama for the supporting characters.

2

I meant haha... the literal amount of money her car would sell for, like realistically, is not really important.

Earlier, Jun doesn't sell it because he see's it's important to her, even though it would clear her debt. Now, she sells it, because repaying Jun is more important.
So you're right in that the decision is not irrelevant, but I didn't mean that. I meant whether or not the car COULD repay all the debt- in the show it can- that's all that's important.

@kurama
Once the story sets what the car is worth - what this discussion essentially boils down to is that this whole time she has been an asset rich adult acting like she is poor and living off a 19 yr old (19 Korean age so 17 or 18).

We now also know, she will take away his agency when it suits her but relies on it when it benefits her.

Again, what do the guys see in her as a love interest. From their POV there is so little there and the subtext of her actions scream - RUN!

1

I remember Rara saying in episode 5 that she'll get 15 million won on her car. And her debt I think is around 8 million won as said in episode 6. And its a mini cooper afterall, its a very expensive car. She wanted to do this a long time ago but Jun just doesn't want her to give up her car because its her dads gift to her 😊

I know but she should have done it. I was disapointed that Jun stopped her. She was right and ready to become an adult.

Yes, that’s a Mini Cooper with special Uk features. It’d be one expensive imported car in Korea. While it’d be great for Ra-ra to personally earn enough to repay Jun, it is simply not realistic in this storyline. What should be appreciated is her learning of trade off as a part of the reality she’s in - and also her determination of repaying Jun through his mom is a critical step she must do at that point.

I agree with Man-bok's back story really lifting the story! His story gave Ra-ra strength and hope, and I felt, as a viewer, that it helped me deal with the separation. If Man-bok was able to reunite with his love and during an era where his wife was illiterate and there was no way to communicate and they were able to marry after 5 years, then Ra-ra and Joon can make it through as well. I wonder if they will do the 5-year thing for Ra-ra and Joon. I would hate a 5-year separation, but it makes the most sense since it would allow Joon to finish university.

I had a lot of thoughts and feels after this weeks episodes. This is a show that really showcases our charectors hidden depths.
1) In this weeks eps we see how deeply Ra Ra feelings go. she was obviously up set, and we see her crying at her piano when Jun shows up. When he is finally in front of her, she is all smiles. But once he looks away you can see the absolute heart ache in her eyes and the toll of being her happy self. She does it so he wont be upset at what she knows is inevitable.
2)I adored the conversation between jun's mom and RA Ra. Like said in the recap, this is when we see her as a mother who truly loves her son and wants the best for him tho she may go about it in a rough way. When she explained that they had him late due to infertility you could feel her pain. She wants Jun to be happy but he is still a minor, there is no getting away from that fact
3) I think RA RA showed the greatest depth and maturity here. She knew she had to let Jun go for his own benefit. This is not your typical noble idiocy. If they were the same age then I could see it. He is a kid and she knows his future is important no matter how much she cares for him. It takes a lot of strength to know you have to let someone go.
These two points cement my belief that under her ditzy happy personality there is so much more. The moment she found out his real age she knew what was going to happen
4) WHAT WAS THAT WEDDING SCENE?!?!? i hope it wasn't real.
I have to say that I think this is one of the best shows of 2020 it has so much depth and heart that I will be sad to see it go.

I love the two envelope scenes actually. First with Seung-gi gave back the money to Jun's mother. Second with Rara paid her debt to Jun via his mother. In both scenes, I could see that Jun's mother is soften, especially with the conversation with Rara. I know what she wants - separating Jun and Rara. But all Rara's understanding has given her some other insights about Rara. We could also see the TWD ajumma and Seok-hyung have become speechless to listen to the unexpected conversation between Jun's mother and Rara. To me, Rara has grown so much in the way she handled her problem without Jun in her side.

As much as I hate to see our inseparable Ra-ra and Joon separated, this was a great set of episodes. I think it really speaks to how the writer doesn't put all their eggs into the OTP basket, but developed all characters and the relationships, so the drama remains strong, energetic, and interesting even when Ra-ra and Joon aren't together. They really lift each other up and are always rooting for each other.

I loved the "confrontation" scene between Ra-ra and Joon's mom. It went against our expectations on how such a scene would go, especially given how controlling Joon's mom is. I was touched to see that Joon's mom also recognize that Ra-ra is also somebody's precious daughter, just like how Joon is her precious son. And Ra-ra made a good decision to let Joon go because they really are at different stages in life now. She remembered how things were when she was 19. Ra-ra may seem immature and carefree, but she is thinking, considering, and adapting. She knows when to get serious.

I'm curious as to how Ra-ra confirmed Dr.Cha was dodosolsollalasol. So she was right a few episodes back when she commented on the similarity of the figure of speech - which, Joon pointed out, was very flimsy evidence. I hope we get some sort of flashback.

Part of me thought harabeoji was in play to be the dodosolsollalasol since it seemed like he may have been waylaid by Joon's mom's sudden visit. I don't know why Dr.Cha ultimately decided against revealing himself, but looking back on the dodosolsollalasol meeting, he did look like he wanted to say something but kept on getting interrupted.

The problem with the wedding as an advertisement deal is that it was live streamed. When Jun saw it and anyone else, there was no title that said "2 Kids wedding videos! Look what we can do for you!" No advertisement!
You dont think kept an eye on the live stream the whole way to Enpo? What good is advertising without advertising?
You dont think the kids kept in touch with Jun all that time?
I mean they only skipped school risked alot to save him and kidnap him out of the hospital?!?!?
No one in the whole town thought, Hey if Jun sees this he will freeak??? It wasnt just Jun.
The guy she almost married and Dr Chas ex wife came down turbo speed too!
The writing has been good til now but 2 things were un characteristic of the people we came to know them as.
1. RaRa saying ZERO to Jun when she lured him to the boat dock
2. This whole wedding fiasco. Ratings bait anyone?

I think the writing in DO Do started to fail in episode 9 when Writer-nim wrote Jae-min as a child ‘noble idiot’. I thought it was absurd. In these last few episodes the best writing and acting has been the haraboji scenes. Kudos to LJW and GA.

I have such mixed feelings in regards to Jun's mother.
On one hand i completely see and agree why she would be upset with Jun being out of the home, giving up on school, and working to (at least part of the reason) help support Ra Ra.
On the other hand her son was hurting and she is putting way more effort into keeping him in line to keep up the family image than in helping him.
There does seem to be an element of fear involved to in regards to her husband?
It would also be nice if even though she is against what he has been doing (one hundred percent reasonably so) if she could still recognize the positive aspects that allowed him to be able to do all that he has done even if just to herself.

It's not surprising to see that bit of fear - that man would bring a bunch of security to haul back his son and wife. In episode 10, his henchmen grabbed her like she was some criminal. He is quick to suspect her of cheating while not sparing a thought for his own kid.

The only thing that is left is for Ra Ra to find out about her dad's secretary stealing his money. They showed it briefly and that was it.

The only reason Ra-ra needs that money is to be a worthy bride in his parents' eyes.

Agreed! this issue has not been resolved. We only saw him a brief moment, and like what the TWD ajumma said, the Sec might have stolen the money, LoL.

I 100% that the weeding scene is a prank. It must be a prank, otherwise I can not accept that! XD

Thanks for the recap. Last week's episodes left a high benchmark, so I'm not surprised many of us were left disappointed this week. But I'm still rooting for our Joonie & Lala to overcome their age difference and social status. I won't be surprised if Joon, now planning to major in Maths, has calculated a plan for his happy ending with Lala. I am not worried about the wedding. It must have been for a promotional gimmick for Seunggi & Hayoung's new business. Anything more serious than that will make everything awkward.

This is the only drama so far that had me crying unexpectedly. There I was intently watching that parting scene of ep 10 and haraboji's story in 11 (or was it 12?), and boom! Tears started to flow. Is it Wednesday yet??? :)

At least Ra-ra didn't give Joon another bloody nose when she swerved his kiss, which I appreciate her not kissing a minor, and the show had Ha-young explicitly tell us, "We're adults now."

This show is turning into another example of how Kdramas are made. They dont get the whole thing in then can and then play it like US TV. They have a show written out about 1/2 way and start and then the writing changes about 1/2 way through. Either pressured to finish, edited because of viewer feedback etc.
This one was pretty good but evidently had falling viewership so they started doing tricky shocking EP endings to get you to tune back in next week to find out the "What the hell is going on" factor.
