every last minute of the hour-long episodes of Rebel has me feeling attacked. i just care about everyone, and i’m constantly worried they’ll meet some horrific fate, and it’s literally giving me heartburn.
at the time of this post, i’m about halfway through episode 5, so i haven’t really had a chance to get to know Ga Ryung and Gong Hwa. still, the few scenes they’ve had has already been enough that i feel extremely protective of them, and even more worried–given that we already know some of what they end up as. they’re such beautiful ladies, and i need more of their sisterhood!
as well–i’d like a list of people who’ve dared to call Gong Hwa anything other than beautiful. she handled the little jokey-insult marvelously, but seriously? i’m a little in love right now, she’s so gorgeous! and Ga Ryung is as sweet and charming as i expected she’d be. i can’t wait to delve into the nitty gritty with her as well, and see how she went from that total fluffball to being tied to a pole and screaming at Gil Dong.
and then of course we have our Hong siblings. we’ve seen these three grow up right before our eyes, and i feel a little like they’re my own children. and the love and care they have for each other!! Eo Ri Ni is such a sweetheart, brainiac Gil Hyun is so kind, and then we have our titular Gil Dong; the gentle giant. the dynamics between these three are so spectacular, the fact that they love each other and would do anything for each other heartbreaking, given that–under the circumstances, i can’t see it ending well. regardless of the impending doom, these three have my heart, and i know i’m going to cry an ocean if and when something happens to them. it’s too late for me too quit now. i’ve gotten in too deep.
side note: Ah Mo Gae’s lines are really lyrical. i could listen to him talk all day.
