Just like Hyeon-Ho requested, JY should let him go. I don’t understand why he has to keep apologizing when he’s done nothing wrong. They’re all acting like JY and SA committed a crime. I’m trying to understand when they were ever real friends to him. He liked a girl his best friend liked. That’s not a crime. He didn’t act on it. Feelings just don’t disappear even if you want them to especially when the object of your feelings is a constant in your life. For someone like JY who shoulders the weight of his world by himself, who craves warmth and love because he became the breadwinner too young, how can he simply cut off whatever family he’s formed on his own? JK was more than just a crush to him. He didn’t act on his feelings. If anyone had it extremely rough, it was him. HH should honestly get over himself. I understand he’s in pain. I understand the first jab of ‘betrayal’ he might have first felt but he’s had enough time to reason shit out. Being mad at JY for JK being sad or ‘hurt’ is so stupid, selfish and unreasonable. Neither JK nor HH seems to have sat down, even for a very brief second, to think about anyone else but themselves. They’ve not sat down to consider their friend who seems to always be putting theirs and everyone else’s feelings before his. Granted, JY should try to be more assertive and forthcoming with his feelings but he is better off without them. The friendship didn’t seem to have had strong bonds – it was running purely on nostalgia and vibes alone😒😒. They were probably bound to drift apart eventually. It’s a shame it happened this way.
And while I understand SA’s friend (can’t remember her name) and where she’s coming from, she too, will soon have to get over herself. Almost every scene she had with SA was always about her. The signs were there. If she’d stopped for a second to glance at the sour look on her friend’s face for a tiny second, she would have noticed something. But it’s unfair to blame her for not being able to read to SA’s mind. But she’s angry SA had feelings for whatever his name is? Did. She. Act. On. It. Tho? NO?? Then, ma’am get over yourself! I’ll give her one more episode.

    I totally agree with you.
    I was quite mad both to HyunHu and MingSu telling JoonYoung and SongAh that they were bad friends because they SECRETLY liked the person they also liked. It’s so absurd, specially when both JY and SA did nothing to show up, who hide their feelings, suffer in secret and supported their friend?
    I specially hated MS, whose first thought was about herself: you’ve fooled me. How dare she? Instead of thinking… what a hard time you must have had when the two of us were dating… No, she thought (as she hadn’t been friends with SA for 10 years and knew her so well) that her friend was making her a fool and laughing at her because both of them liked the same guy. If SA had told her, she would have quitted their friendship just as she’s doing now.
    The only thing both JY and SA did wrong was being friends with such selfish people.

    Agree with everything you said. What I find most perplexing though, is that in both cases they were a group of friends – threesomes. So I don’t get how the friends of the main leads can be so angry at them when they all knew each other from the same time and spent time as friends before pairing off. Is it so inconceivable that the other part of the threesome also fell in love with their friend like you did? Really? And the irony of two people telling other to ‘stop loving’ when they themselves have been so incapable of it…boggles my mind.

    Well said beanies! I get that MS/HH were both emotional but like you’ve said, there was no crime committed? The OTPs tried hard to ignore their own feeling for their friend and now that they’ve moved on and has to let go of those feelings, they do this?! Im still upset about this too. IRL, friendship doesnt go back to whats been before if this happens. I think JY/SA should move on from MS/HH as well. There’s JK still, who I think remained the truest? *cant believe Im saying this cuz I hated her the 1st half 🤣

    I think a lot of this crummy reacting from both HH and MS is because they are hella embarrassed. It’s much easier for HH to blame JY vs JK and for MS to blame SA vs DY for what they’re feeling because the relationship is more ‘straightforward’ and their feelings for their respective exes are still complicated. No, neither JY nor SA acted on their feelings, but HH and MS still ended up rejected. Feeling like we were kept in the dark can make someone feel very foolish, and I think that’s why they are lashing out so hard as well. It’s misdirected and unfair, and honestly they should just take a time out. I think everyone would understand if they needed some time and space to lick their wounds and process everything. But taking it out on the easiest target is not unusual, and unfortunately that’s what we’re seeing here.
