People are excited and freaking out over fan cams of the filming of “Oath of Love”, I get it (seriously…. I’ve already started a month-to-month countdown to the airing of the drama).

Yet, in THIS particular fan cam, I see it more than just a fan cam. I can see Xiao Zhan’s work ethic:

Though Yang Zi is the more senior one on the set of a drama (girl has been acting since she was 7/8 years old), Xiao Zhan still took the initiative to hold her hand first instead of having her ask him.

Though he’s the junior in the acting field, he chose to take initiative first, and knowing him, it’s because he’s taking into consideration that Yang Zi is a girl and, a lot of times, it’s awkward for the girl or inconvenient for the girl to take initiative on the set because it’s easier to target the female and make news and gossip out of it— females are easy targets to attack, especially in a patriarchal society such as China’s.

Xiao Zhan has, once again, shown me that chivalry isn’t dead. He’s shown me, once again, his kind and considerate heart. He’s shown me, once again, his attitude and ethics toward his work 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

… Or maybe I’m just reading too much into a fan cam moment 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Thanks for sharing! I bet they do this for other dramas as well but I’ve really noticed it in this drama. This is what they do in theatre. Characters wear clothes that show what kind of person they are, sometimes wearing one color in different shades.

      Yea, I agree!!
      Maybe it’s because of the topic of the drama (mental health and those with disabilities), it stands out more and seems even MORE intentional for me compared to other dramas that may do the same 🤔🤔🤔
      Now I’m excited to see the changes coming for our beloved characters ☺️☺️☺️

IOTNBO, Ep. 6

Up until now, we have not gotten confirmation from Kang Tae, himself, whether or not he really is the little boy from Moon Young’s childhood…. Not until now. The way he just strolls into her castle, how he knows where the balcony is situated inside the place, how confident he just walks along the hallways… But this further proves Moon Young’s point of his putting on an act: Putting on an act around her (of not knowing) even though he knew who she is, around his brother & friends about just how much he thinks life sucks.

During their physical fight, Sang Tae said (shouted, really) something that I think rings really true, but Kang Tae just refuses to comes to terms with because it wasn’t what his mother told him— Sang Tae said, “I belong to myself!”
Kang Tae’s regret (boy has lots of regrets! Whew!), about when he once said he’d wish his Hyung died, has stayed with him the moment he blurted it out until now, into adulthood, and he has let that regret overshadow his own opinions, as well as the opinion of others, about how his and his Hyung’s lives should be lived out. It also doesn’t help that the brothers’ mom explicitly said—and which, Kang Tae has engrained into his mind—that the reason for Kang Tae’s birth & existence revolves around bringing care for his Hyung. Kang Tae’s instant regret and immediate make up with Sang Tae just shows that he’s is only human after all and does have his own weaknesses, feelings, and emotions—unlike how everyone (even his own mother) perceived him: The person to call only when help is needed.

For Moon Young, Kang Tae is literally the first person ever to show her what sympathy and compassion means and looks like— when she first saw him while he was saving his Hyung when they were little. The difference between Kang Tae and Moon Young is this: Kang Tae’s overt sympathy and compassion enables him to be easily influenced and used by those around him (especially his mother), while Moon Young was never brought out of her ASPD and apathy because of her parents. Both of our leads were heavily influenced firsthand by their parents, which paved the way to how they turned out now as adults, and sadly, they didn’t know better and didn’t know how to come out of the influence, and are suffering the consequences now as adults.

We all know that Moon Young wants something from Kang Tae, which is what’s prompting her to take advantage of Sang Tae— if she were any other character without ASPD as a mental illness, I’d definitely be shaking my head at this ☹️— and a foil to that actually lies in Ju Ri’s mom. She’s the first mother-like figure that’s appeared in Kang Tae’s life who cares for him with no strings attached and is happy for both brothers that they can find things they enjoy as INDIVIDUALS (which, Kang Tae seems to have a problem trying to compute 😅😅🥺🥺). By telling Kang Tae that he should cheer for his Hyung in finding something he enjoys doing as an individual, Ahjumma is also hinting at Kang Tae that he should, and is allowed to, do the same, too . On the other hand, I really hope that a father-like figure will appear in Moon Young’s life to care for her— maybe we will be able to find that person in CEO Lee (Moon Young’s publisher).

Moon Young playing “20 Questions” with Kang Tae and asking him all sorts of questions about himself was actually really telling. She asks him questions that he’s never even considered for himself, let alone have answers to, and that just goes to show us that he’s never lived a moment of his own life for himself before, ever 🥺 Just imagine that— you’ve lived 1/3 of your life already (assuming you’d live long enough to reached your late-80s/early-90s) and have never lived any of it for yourself…. sobering.

I can almost cry at just how much integrity is filled into the character of Kang Tae: Though he’s said all of those things about his Hyung when they were little (and probably has had those same thoughts here and there going into adulthood, I’m sure), he immediately regrets it and acts to repair that regret. Despite how much Moon Young sets him off and frustrates him, Kang Tae still chooses to understand her and exhibit kindness to her 🥰

I’m so glad that Kang Tae is FINALLY able to see for himself what Moon Young really means after telling him multiple times that she needs him. It’s not something that he can deny or push off anymore, because he’s seen with his own eyes just how distraught she is, and here’s to hoping that this is the beginning of the healing process for, both, Moon Young and Kang Tae.

It feels so good to see more rooms in Moon Young’s castle be unveiled, even the basement. The basement is probably the most damned room of the whole place, filled with unhappy—and rather horrifying, actually—memories. The uncovering of that room signifies a step forward in the circumstances of our beloved characters, their relationships, and especially growth— growing out of the past and the baggage it represents, not letting the past hinder our characters anymore, and finally, heading into a new beginning and becoming a new creation… sort of like butterflies 🦋

OMG that LIBRARY 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 Anyone else a bibliophile and have a love and fascination with libraries?? 🙋🏻‍♀️

It was smart of the PD to give us a little something for the end of the episode this week—I’m glad for it, after weeks of things being super heavy, even the epilogues.

I cannot wait to see what this upcoming weekend will bring us ~!!!
