Beanie level: Errand boy

Ah this time next week is going to be such a different vibe. Stoic misunderstood mc who actually feels a lot, murder mystery, kick ass female lead. Wait maybe its not going to be all that different? I’m gonna miss the warmth though.

Maybe I should binge watch Forest of Secrets season 1 again after I’m done with Psycho just to remind myself who’s who…

    the vibes might be different, but my reactions are probably gonna be the same – lots of screaming (out of excitement) and swooning. 😛

Me when this drama ends next week:

You can’t live by yourself anymore. Why? Because you know now what it feels like to be warm at heart & have a full stomach.

“For Mo-yeong writing fairytales is the only way to communicate with the world. Its the only way she can talk and breathe.” So by retiring she’s effectively shutting herself from the world I can’t! 😭

    I know, right? Plus she’s rocking the vintage old Hollywood hairstyle. She’s like singlehandedly bringing 1920s glamour back.

        That funeral outfit just happens to be from Alexander McQUEEN. The red fairy tale princess-like dress in the preview is from the same brand. Really fancy. They’ve been dressing girlfriend in the more recent episodes in Prada, Chanel, and Miu Miu. I actually miss seeing her in pieces from up-and-coming designers and brands that are not as well-known.

Kim soo Hyun showing up in his own drama looking like he\’s here for a cameo!! I know Kang-tae was him the whole time but KSH in a suit with his hair up just hits so different?!

It scared the hell out of me just how eerily similar Mo-yeong\’s mom looks like Mo-yeong, especially the childhood version of her we have seen. They have the same hair and style of dressing almost like her mom was grooming her into a mirror image of herself. It makes sense then with how controlling she seemed to be of Mo-yeong. Even the symbolism of Mo-yeong always staring at her reflection in the mirror while her mother brushes her hair realizing how much her reflection looks like her mother. Its so creepy!

The butterfly symbolism makes sense as well in this context since its a mother butterfly carrying a baby on its back similar to how her mother made Mo-yeong so dependant on her. When she said \”I\’ll take care of my own child\” it seemed like she was conditioning Mo-yeong to follow in her own footsteps. And to an extent, that conditioning has followed Mo-yeong into adulthood.

Especially in earlier episodes: hed long hair, clothing, her fixation with sharp objects like her mother, those shoes, and even her red lips and way of talking all seem so eerily similar to her mom! But while her mother looked so soulless and empty, Mo-yeong actually feels vivacious alive and full of feelings or emotions. She\’s just bad at expressing them. Its only after she meets Kang-tae again that she learns how to be more expressive and control her anger.

    I think it’s narcissism, but do you really think “my child” was MY? I wonder….

      Hmm so far I think she was referring to MY i wonder why it came up in conversation though I didn’t think they knew each other.

        I am wondering if the child she was referring to was Sang-tae, if he was the ugly duckling rejected by his family and adopted by Kang-tae’s mother. If so, MY and ST are actually siblings. That makes the family photo v ironic indeed. Just a thought.

          Hmm I’ve seen this idea floating around and it would make sense then why the mom didn’t kill Sang-tae and said the lines she did. But honestly I don’t want them to be blood related. I would rather have the Mo-yeong that cares so deeply about Sang-tae without even being related to him. I like the idea of them being more like siblings than Kang-tae and Sang-tae

            I love the unpredictability of this drama and dramas in general. No matter how much I try to second guess them, I am usually left flat-footed. I get what you’d like about this little family, but will the writer be able to resist the twist or will they do something altogether unexpected?

Apart from Kang-tae, Mo-yeong talk with Ju-ri today was the first time I think someone actually heard her say I dont want to see my dad and accepted it as the truth. I hope that was the end of it and we don\’t hear yet another person try to guilt trip her into talking to him. She doesn\’t need or want that and I\’m so very tired of kdramas pushing the filial child narrative!!

Sometimes children are too damn broken and hurt to forgive their parents for their sins. Just because they are sorry about it doesnt mean they deserve forgiveness. If the traumatised and hurt child wants to cling on to their pain and anger as an adult thats their perogative. Would it be better for them to let go of the past so they can heal? Absolutely. But that\’s something that has to come from the inside if at all. You can\’t push people into forgiving thier parents just because they are old and dying. That type of thing only benefits them not their kids.

That whole sequence with us learning about ajusshi having killed a bunch of people to the bus scene and the whole Vietnam flashback was done so well! He\’s such a sweet old man and the way he broke down right after just hurt so much! I love how Sang-tae recognised what was happening and reacted right away by putting him in his own safety blanket like Kang-tae did for him. I just have a lot of feelings about today\’s episode.

Ugh i don\’t know why that family portrait scene hit me so hard but I\’m bawling! Everything from the way Sang-tae practiced looking \”normal\” like the pictures on his wall, to the way Mo-yeong tells him not to try too hard to mimic that and just be himself because that\’s who Moon Sang-tae really is, to the fact that he\’s going to be a legitimate illustrator and that Mo-yeong always believed in his skills and him as a person. To how sweetly she looks at him when she tells him lets go take pictures anyways. And how happy they both looked when Kang-tae came in. He\’s so broken up about her mom killing his but he loves her and recognizes this isn\’t her fault. The old Kang-tae would have shut down and run away. But he\’s here and ready to face it with her. I donno i just feel so sad about that family portrait. They may not be related but these they found each other and the trio is a family and I just 😭😭😭
