Yumi’s – Ep 14

Can someone who knows the webtoon maybe explain Woong’s behavior? I know the drama can change his motivations but I’d like to know the original explanation. I liked this drama very much, the realistic and sensitive main characters and the metaphorical workings of their minds were a great team. I did not like the decision to forget Woong’s mind though, in the latest eps he was more of a secondary character for no reason. If drama decided that making his motivations a mystery was necessary to make people want a second season it was a silly idea and it did not match the rest of the story.

He was a caring guy and suddenly decided to move out without any explanation? Yumi didn’t behave like she should either, the woman who was mature enough to say the things she said in the Saeyi situation would not be someone who would never ask why her boyfriend left the apartment.

That last ep was rather weak, the awful PPL, the parents added nothing, both main characters behaved weirdly, the card metaphor was very overused and then Woong probably had some simple work explanation to break up but drama decided it needed to be mysterious for no reason.

    Woong was very proud. He didn’t even tell her about his money issues. She discovered it by chance. He accepted unwillingly to live with her. and it never was a permanent solution for him. The scene with Bobby made him feeling insecure and it’s why he decided to leave.

      I understood why he left but the choice to not tell her why seemed strange and her silence about it was even stranger. If they had been fighting it would be possible but she was considering marriage and he seemed very happy with her, though still worried about his finances.

        Also, her Pride Cell stood up and got in the way to a degree.

    It was his Pride and Ego. He couldn’t tell Yumi that he is struggling financially and that he was not ready to get married. He always choose himself so he will rather lose Yumi than sacrifice his pride.

      That First Priority metaphor was great in the coworker situation. It was nice to show how Yumi needed that in order to grow and have a good relationship with anyone. I would have liked it more if they had chosen to blame Insecurity, Ego or Vanity instead of Priority to justify some of Woong’s decisions because he was making choices that were bad for him instead of that Yumi’s example.

    I think Yumi’s disappointment piled up, that is why her Love Cell got weaker and that is probably why she didn’t bother speaking up. First disappointment leading to the breaking was when she asked about getting married and he didn’t answer properly. Second, when she found out that he used to like Saeyi at the wedding. Third, when Woong moved out. Her final straw was when Woong transferred money for the broken chair.

      Yes, that was probably better in the webtoon because drama made a big deal of how much she still loved him even after he moved out so her behavior seemed strange. I did like the sudden opening of that Love Balloon because of one small attitude.
