“I’m glad…I was stabbed, not you. I’m glad you are not hurt.”
Stay still my poor shipper heart! MIN HYUK GETS STABBED FOR BONG SOON! He completely disregards his own safety and acts purely on instict. When he is racing to her everything rational leaves his mind and the only coherent thought that remains is TO PROTECT BONG SOON AND SHIELD HER WITH HIS OWN BODY.
He does it because he loves her, because he couldn’t bear to see her hurt, because he promised her father that he would protect her and because he finally has the chance TO REPAY HER FOR SAVING HIS LIFE 10 YEARS AGO when she was wearing the VERY SAME PINK HOODIE THAT IS NOW GETTING STAINED WITH HIS BLOOD.
There is something so impossible intimate and tender about the way Min Hyuk gently places his big hand on Bong Soon’s small, slender one while it’s lying over his wound AS SHE IS HOLDING HIM IN HER ARMS, CRYING HER HEART OUT FOR HIM, AND HE IS BLEEDING FOR HER.
And even though he is slowly losing consciousness, MH still finds the strengh to assure and calm her, making sure BS doesn’t blame herself and it does remind you of their training together when he never got angry at her and always encouraged her. And here he is again, taking responsibility for her and protecting her in every way he can.
