I think he loves her

anonymous asked:

I think you can have a crush on two people at the same time, so Marco said that he has a crush on Jackie is not lying, but there's still a chance that he have a crush on star too with out him noticing it (yet).

It’s not impossible, in Blood Moon Ball he did react to the voice talking about a “moon of lovers”. But I think that, so far, he “just” loves her a lot as a friend. Romantic love will hopefully come, eventually…

One word: Wook. The take on his character seems to me much darker on SHR than it ever was on BBJX. This guy is conflicted and I don't think his motivations are that simple: family is one thing, but personal ambition? Besides, such good acting!

Yeah, I’ve been noticing that as well. Just a lot of subtle differences in his characterization up until this point and then episode 11 was like a lightening strike, illuminating all the dark corners of his psyche. For him too, I think. I don’t believe that Wook made promises to Soo with the intention of breaking them, I think he believed himself to be stronger than he truly was. I think he believed he loved her more than he truly did.

With the 8th of BBJX there was always that edge of ruthless ambition pervading and informing everything he did, even in his relationship with Rouxi. But it didn’t come across as so overtly dark, as it does in this version. More like an integral part of his personality, something that we were aware of from the beginning and that Rouxi attempted to ignore or think her way around because of they’re mutual affection, but which eventually became an insurmountable barrier between them. Something which the original 8th saw nothing to be embarrassed in, whereas Wook doesn’t seem to like this part of himself.

In SH:R, we as the audience begin to suspect 8th’s ambition before he does, it seems. Yeon Hwa certainly knows him better than he knows himself. He seems like a much younger, less seasoned version of the 8th prince in BBJX. And maybe that makes some kind of sense. After all, everyone in this story feels like they were aged down a little bit from the Chinese version. Wook lacks the mature self-awareness that the original 8th had. And that carries over into his romantic life as well.

When the original 8th pursed Rouxi, it was with the confidence and self-knowledge of a man who had already experienced the disappointments of love, who was already twice married. The confidence of an older man pursuing a younger, more innocent girl. There was none of Wook’s boyish infatuation, or self delusion about his intentions. None of the awkward flirting and coded interactions. And it makes sense, as Wook has married only once and has been so hopelessly insensitive to his wife’s adoration, unaware of his own feelings.

I have a hard time deciding which I prefer. Certainly, I think the original 8th was a bit more likable, on paper. But his romance with Rouxi never moved me the way certain moments between Wook and Hae Soo have. Both of these characters work so well in their own takes on the story, that its hard to imagine how things would have played out had they swapped places.

In the end, I’m going to have to say I prefer Wook. He’s just so fascinating, and Kang Ha Neul plays him with such subtlety and humanity. Even at his lowest you can read all the movements of his character’s heart. It’s fascinating. It would take nothing less to hold your own in a love triangle along side Lee Joon Gi.

I’m curious to see where his character will go from here. I suspect he will try to reconcile with Hae Soo, that he isn’t fully aware of the fact that he has lost her utterly now, and as Court Lady Oh predicted, his cowardice is going to haunt him for the rest of the show. And that will only drive him to become darker still.

Thanks for the great ask,

Jona

You don’t love people in hopes of a reward, dad. You love them unconditionally.

The entire time that I was gone, I could never completely trust someone. And when that goes on for so long, you stop seeing people for people. You see threats or targets. And when I decided to come home, I just didn’t know how to turn that part of me off.

If you don’t think Percy still gets flustered around Annabeth, then what are you doing?

If you fight like a married couple, talk like best friends, flirt like first love, protect each other like siblings, it’s meant to be.
