Jieun’s Personality + theory on her purpose

So there’s a lot of buzz surrounding Jieun, her personality, and her ultimate fate after chapter 18. In terms of her potential death, it’s a huge probability she won’t live, there’s really no reason for her to stay alive much longer. Now what’s always interested me is how much of chapter 15 and 16 were dedicated to her background and even her own thoughts and internal dialogue. I don’t think Jieun will just be another unfortunate victim of Sangwoo.

A good portion of this post is going to be dedicated to taking a better look at Jieun’s personality in relation to Sangwoo, I won’t go into her treatment of Bum because that’s been hashed out tons of times by now. So there’s Sangwoo’s infamous speech about how she’s shallow and only into appearances, and while it was very intense and elaborate, I have plenty of reason to believe that he was wrong and only spoke so much to make a half assed justification for killing her. Let’s look at some parts of his dialogue:

So Sangwoo is the type of person to use any excuse to kill anyone, it doesn’t matter what they do. The first girl he killed because he felt she challenged his ego, Sangwoo said he killed the old man because he stuck his dick in his face, and now Jieun is about to die because he says she doesn’t deserve anyone for cursing people who don’t look good. It doesn’t matter to Sangwoo whether or not he’s wrong but, he’s kind of wrong.

This is our introduction to Jieun, the first impression of her is that she seems to be bored with being told she’s hot, it’s a reasonable assumption that she’s frequently told that she’s beautiful. She’s the kind of person that didn’t put much effort into anything because she’s never had to try. Things are handed to her for being so pretty, and it’s actually gotten old for her at this point

But then here she is, putting effort into her appearance, getting out of her way and actually trying to look good for Sangwoo. He is clearly special to her just by this small action. Although initially she wasn’t interested in him.

Here is more insight into Jieun’s mind and how she used to perceive Sangwoo, she wasn’t interested in his appearance, but they began to hang out more and she was swept away by the persona he created. When they were singing their duet, there was a montage of moments between them that she was reflecting on. It’s very clear she’s developed feelings for him, not based solely off of his looks, but because of how he treated her as well. Jieun gets flustered when Sangwoo says she’s pretty, not because of the compliment of being told she’s pretty, but because it’s coming from him. 

Now given that Jieun has had a decent amount of time dedicated to her personality, thoughts, and even some development, what does this mean for her purpose in the story? She’s been given more attention than Sangwoo’s other murder victims, it would be a waste if she was just killed and never heard from again. 

My personal belief is that Jieun will become a martyr of sorts, she has the ability to be the catalyst for Sangwoo being caught. Jieun is within his social circle, and Sangwoo was the last person she was in contact with. It wouldn’t take too much work to connect the two together (maybe her going missing would even bring back Seungbae into the plot). And if she did become the key to Sangwoo’s downfall, then that would almost be as satisfying as when she punched Sangwoo in the eye.

I couldn’t sleep last night because I know that it’s over between us. I’m not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I’ll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent a summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give to you forever. I love you. I’ll be seeing you.

can i just talk for a minute about how Lucas was willing to go headfirst into the upside down just to bring Will back ? as soon as it was revealed to him that Will was trapped in this cold, dark space he had to find out how to get him out. and once Eleven, or Mike, or even Dustin didn’t seem to have the same drive he just decided to go on by himself. no matter what it took, no matter if he’d get caught, his priority, his mission was to find his friend and get him back. and honestly, he didn’t even understand what he was getting himself into. he hadn’t seen the demogorgon before so he had like no idea how high the stakes were. he just knew his friend was in trouble, and that they had to get them out. and he geared up for battle and marched himself over there to do it himself. because he couldn’t go on and possibly let Will die because they all were taking their sweet time with it. like just realizing he was willing to walk into another dimension solely based on the fact that his friend needed him says a lot about his character. and honestly people think that he’s selfish, or rude, but this is a kid with clear allegiances, who has a tight circle around him and if you’re in the circle he’ll do anything for you, he’ll die for you, but if you’re out of the circle he just can’t focus on your troubles ?? and while that’s a hard position to take, it’s very realistic imo and very mature tbh and I don’t feel like he should be vilified for it. another thing is, is that he actually realized he was wrong and sincerely apologized for it like– that’s so mature and aware of his actions and I just want this kid to be appreciated and loved and respected and yeah.

  • What I Say: I'm fine.
  • What I'm Thinking: Stargate was such a beautifully rich and complex world, and I feel like they really screwed themselves over with Universe, but that is no reason to shut down that mythology all together. I mean SG-1 was so good, it was about exploring and it wasn't all sexed up, and really Universe went wrong the moment they opened their pilot with the Marine and the soldier banging in an actual literal supply closet. And has it been almost ten years since it went of the air? Yeah but I still miss my star children. And let's not forget Stargate Atlantis. Hello: Space Vampires! And like they were really terrifying, and Elizabeth Weir deserved so much more in the end. They all did. And not to mention we got 4 seasons of Jason Mamoa being a hottie badass. Suck it GOT. I honestly miss the G'ould. I mean they were pests, lets be real. They were dick shaped parasites, BUT Ba'al was fun. He was a nuisance, but he was fun to mock. He and Jack O'Neil were always funny to watch, I mean when Jack wasn't being tortured. I'm kind of afraid the new film reboots will fuck everything up, like why. Don't do that, just bring back my literal star children as a tv show that doesn't fuck up like Universe did. I was so angry as a little ten year old when Universe got too dark for me to watch. To this day I still haven't watched all of it because I'm angry at it. I will eventually, but at the moment I'm too pissed at Eli for being a fuck boi to Rush, who let's be honest was based on Geddy Lee. I just really really miss my Stargate. Give me G'ould, Wraith, fuck even the Ori, I just want my spinny ring portal back.
Y'all know what I'm really ready for in ACOWAR?

Cassian and Azriel to see Feyre again. Yes, the Feysand reunion will be amazing and beautiful and I’ll probably cry for a year.

But y'all. Cassian and Azriel still have no idea Feyre is their High Lady now. And they already respect and love her SO. MUCH. and that is only going to triple when they find out that their best friend’s mate, THEIR friend, the woman who defended Velaris so faithfully, the woman who is the missing puzzle piece of their Inner Circle is now leading them alongside their High Lord and literally sacrificed herself back into the Spring Court where she was so traumatized in order to protect them and their people.

I’m so emo over this. I can’t wait to see their reunion. Where they thank her for what she’s done, where they pledge their loyalty to her as High Lady, where they thank her for bringing the light back into their brother’s eyes.

I just… give me more AzrielxFeyre and CassianxFeyre friendship. Please.
