This episode was heartwarming and gave me laughs. I didn’t expect that. I mean, this show srsly, it’s so unpredictable! but that’s the reason why I love it. Yep, they were right indeed. IT IS A ROMCOM!!!! THAT ENDING SCENE!!!! oh I can’t even..
Ri jin, the best female lead I’ve ever seen. I just love her.
Do hyun pretended to be Yo na. Priceless.
Do hyun’s suit look have returned. I’m so happy.
I know the alternative personalities should be merged.. so Do hyun can live a normal life and everything.. I clearly know that and I truly want him to be happy. But I was so sad when Yo sub said he’d probably be disappeared soon because Do hyun didn’t want to kill himself anymore. It’s a good thing, I know that but…OH GOD!!!! YO SUB!!! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME!!!! IT’S MERGING! NOT DYING!! YOU’LL LIVE!! YOU’LL BECOME A COOLER PICTURE!! WITH THE NAME OF CHA DO HYUN!!! YOU’LL BECOME A COOLER PERSON!!! RI JIN SAID THAT!!! BUT WHY ARE YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO AWFUL!!! WHY!! WHYYYYY!!!! yo sub.. don’t go, play with me….ㅠㅠ
“Somehow, I’ve started to want to help this person. Even though I have some shortcomings and faults, I have a family that will help me and embrace me. But this person… has no one. I have a lot of good memories that I can think of whenever I’m having a hard time, but this person doesn’t have anything like that. He lives each and every moment losing his memories and his time. I have a lot of people who love me, but even if this person has people that he loves, he can’t hold onto them. That’s why… I want to help him. I want to help him get out from his castle. And I want to let him know… That if you want to be friends, you hold your hand out… And that it’s okay to grab onto someone else’s hand if they hold it out to you.”
