“A what?” you asked, taking your attention away from the TV and
laundry to give your husband, Hoseok, your full attention.
“A daddy-daughter date,” he chuckles, before placing a kiss
on your cheek. “You love going on dates with me, so I figured Ha-eun would
“Well that a given,” you snort, causing him to laugh more.
“I do plan the best dates don’t I?” You used the shirt you
were folding to smack him, which make him laugh more before giving you another
kiss, this time on your lips.
“She has preschool tomorrow though,” you inform him.
“Ha-eun doesn’t have to go, my love.”
“Why does this sound familiar?” you smirk.
“Cause I got you to skip some classes,” he nods his head,
“and call in to work a few times.”
“You are a bad influence,” you smile at him before kissing
along his jaw line to his ear. “So very bad,” you whisper.
“Is this a yes?” he groans. His hands grip your thighs and
move you so you are straddling him. When you continue your kissing assault on
his neck instead of answering, Hoseok gently grabs your face and make you look
at him. “Jagiya?”
“Only if I get a date too,” you pout.
“You can have as many dates as you want,” he laughs, surging
up to kiss your pout away before flipping you onto your back on the couch.
“Starting right now, my queen.”
“Are you ready princess?” Hoseok smiles down at his little
girl, her mouth open wide as she takes in the Aquarium. When she doesn’t answer
he gives the hand he is holding a little shake. “Well Ha-eun, you ready to go
in?” his smile grows.
“Go Daddy! We go!” she squeals and begins jumping around.
“Of course princess,” They walk towards the entrance, Hoseok
reminding himself to walk slower than he normally did so Ha-eun could easily
keep up, especially since she wasn’t so much as walking as it was bouncing.
“Mommy was excited when I brought her here too,” he chuckles.
“When did you bring mommy here?” Ha-eun asks.
“Well,” Hoseok picks her up so she can get a look inside the
first tank, “it was when we first started dating. I decided to bring her here
so she could see all the fishies and I could watch her beautiful face light up
like a thousand stars.”
“Daddy watch me too?”
“Of course,” Hoseok points to the tank, “you enjoy seeing
them and I’ll watch my princess’s beauty outshine them, just like her mommy
“Okay!” Ha-eun turns her attention away from her daddy and
finally to the beautiful rainbow like fish that graced the entrance’s view.
“You’re only supposed to pet the fishes, not swim with them,”
Hoseok gently scolds his daughter as he changes her pants, socks and shoes out
for one of the spares he had in the backpack.
“But how am I supposed to pet them when they swim away?”
“You just wait for more to come over.”
“But they take forever!” she whines. Hoseok chuckles as he
puts her wet clothes in a plastic bag and stuffs them into the backpack. “They
did Daddy!” she whines louder.
“Ok baby,” he smiles, “I believe you.” After putting the
backpack back on he picks her up and gives her a kiss on the forehead. “How
about we look at the fishes that can swim over our heads?”
“Over our head?!” she squeals.
“Yup, over our heads.” Hoseok walks out the bathroom and
heads for the tanks that have a tunnel for observation. “All colorful fishes
live there, and even sharks.”
“Sharks?!” Ha-eun gasps.
“Don’t worry, they are nice sharks.” He continues to tell
her all about the tanks and the fishes as he makes his way there.
“Close your eyes baby girl,” he tells her as he stops at the
entrance to the exhibit.
“It makes it more magical that way.” Feeling the need to add
more he continues. “Mommy even said so.”
“Okay Daddy!” Ha-eun closes her eyes real tight, her face
scrunching up as she does.
“When Daddy says to, open your eyes ok?” he kisses her nose
and then covers her eyes with his own hand.
Ha-eun’s little hands come up to press his hand further
against his face. “Okay!”
“So cute,” he whispers to himself, “just like her mommy.”
Hoseok continues into the exhibit and steps onto the conveyor. He watches for
when it looks like the tunnel is opening up to uncover her eyes.
“Okay, open your eyes!” Hae-eun’s delightful cry and the
clasping of her hands makes Hoseok grin ear to ear and steal a kiss.
“Daddy!” she whines and pushes his face out of her view.
“I stole a kiss from Mommy here too,” he informs her and
kisses her again.
“Stealing is bad,” she scolds.
“Mommy didn’t seem to mind,” he snickers. “Mommy loves when
I steal kisses.”
Ha-eun’s brows forrow as she takes in the information.
Suddenly she kisses Hoseok. His shocked but happy look makes her laugh. “Stealing
kisses are fun.”
“Yes,” he cuddles her closer, “but you can only steal them
from Mommy and Daddy. Okay?”
“Okay Daddy!” she giggles and turns her attention back to
the fishes with a demand to go again since Daddy made her miss them.
You know…just because you love someone doesn’t mean all your character flaws exponentially change so you can be better to the person you love. Sometimes, it takes a really, really, really long time to change something about yourself or one of your flaws, even for someone you love, even if you know that trait is indisputably a flaw about yourself. Sometimes you do change, but sometimes you relapse.
With Hae Soo, I was so frustrated with her for not trusting and not being understanding of Wang So. And yet, I understood her. How is So supposed to know that in another life, she was betrayed by both her best friend and her boyfriend? How is he supposed to know that even in this life, she was betrayed by another man she loved? And yet, she was. She was and she’s scarred.
So is not the only one that has had a hard life, and although you may argue that he’s suffered more than Soo in life, it is honestly messed up to trivialize Soo’s pain based off of So’s experiences. To each person, suffering is relative, and the worst pain you’ve ever experienced hurts just as much as the worst pain someone else has experienced. And for someone as idealistic as Go Ha Jin inside Hae Soo’s body, that kind of continuous betrayal wrecks you. So regardless of how much So trusts Soo, it is not that easy to trust once you’ve been betrayed that many times.
Soo is trying her best; we saw it when she left the letter for So about Eun’s whereabouts. We saw it when she questioned why he was smiling so much after a stressful day in court, but didn’t press it when he dismissed her concern. We saw it when she objected Ji Mong, knowing that So will be steadfast as long as she still wants to be queen. It’s not that she’s not trying, it’s that it’s just not that easy.
On the other hand, I think that with misogyny it’s so easy to be blinded by So’s devotion and hail him as the perfect, unwavering man. If you look underneath the surface, So is actually so unforgiving. Just because he completely trusts Soo, he expects her to be able to immediately trust him 100% in return. How unrealistic is that? He really shouldn’t have just walked away after telling Hae Soo she should have understood him. He should have stayed, knowing that Hae Soo can’t just follow him out because she literally doesn’t have permission to just go after a king like that. When he was deciding to kill Chae Ryung, he should have warned Hae Soo beforehand so she could prepare himself.
One of So’s character flaws is that when So believes his actions are justifiable, he acts without any warning, and expects everyone to just automatically understand him. When they don’t, his reaction is literally violent. He was taking it for granted that Hae Soo understands him better than anyone else. Regardless of how much she understands him, she’s not a mind reader.
What is so great about this drama is that it is so frustrating. It’s not supposed to paint this picture of the world bending for you just because you are in love. Everything goes wrong, and just because you are deeply in love doesn’t mean you automatically become perfect for each other or even good for each other. That doesn’t invalidate your love in any way, it just goes to show that not all loves can change the world.

the open window. She took a few minutes to adjust, adjust her consciousness and
her body, moving every part of herself with calculated effort. First, she
looked the other way, away from the window; her head was heavy and her mind was
clouded. She moved her fingers, one at a time. She moved her toes. But her
body, her limbs, didn’t respond as they ought to. She took a deep breath,
trying not to panic at the distress that seemed to grow in her middle, trying
to calm herself down enough to understand it all, to understand anything.

I thought I would be in jail for a while. At least for a few years. You would have said you would wait. Hae Young-ah, breaking up with you was the right thing for me to do. I just..needed something to say to you. Something that would make you leave me. That’s why I did it.
My favourite moment from the finale. I’m just so glad he knows about her, that he has at least that one tiny piece of Soo.
Also, they picked this child actress so well! She’s beautiful, she really looks like she could be SooSo’s daughter - from her big Hae Soo-like eyes and pout to that slightly pointed So-like chin.
Apparently their daughter’s name is Seol which means “snow”. Which I think is so very appropriate considering SooSo watching snowfall together back in episode 4 was the first time I could see their connection and future love coming through :’)

In Hae has grown accustomed to the grit and grime of her job: walking in the shadows, using her empathic abilities to anticipate and fight darkness. Now a new deviant threatens to throw everything into chaos. It would be easier to deal with if In Hae wasn’t so distracted by his dimples.

The rain fell fast and hard, the drops so large they hit In Hae’s eye like tiny fists when she looked up to get a feel for where the moon was. She wiped her eye and cursed. It was too cloudy. She had no sense of the time now. Her phone had run out of batteries while she ran after the Troublemaker. It was the stupidest name, she thought. Couldn’t he have been a little more imaginative?
