Get yourself someone who will hug you like Ji-wook hugs Bong-hee even when she’s a dirty hot mess, and still believes you are the most pretty woman in the world. Or that when you are in hair pulling fight, he be like “whatever happens, must protect bae!” because if that’s not true love, I don’t know what it is.
I’m really enjoying this new dynamic between Ji-wook and Bong-hee when he’s a playful and cheeky flirt and now that he knows it affects her -and quite obviously- I hope he keeps on with it. It’s amazing how much Ji-wook has changed since he openly admitted his feelings for Bong-hee, being in love suits him! He’s smiling more, not hiding his feelings in front of anyone and incredibly affectionate. And I love he accepts her just the way she is, even when she throws herself with so much passion into her work that she doesn’t shower for three days. Ew, by the way.
I also find it refreshing that he’s willing to share his most private feelings and experiences with her, like the story of his family. Kudos, show, because I knew Lawyer Byun was like a father figure to him but you surprised me by presenting him like the man who actually raised him along side with his wife who now I know it’s his Godmother. WOW! That took me by surprise!
And I give more kudos to the show for having Bong-hee admitting she’s in a similar situation where she has two fathers but won’t tell him the story just yet because just like with her own feelings she’s still on the fence about risking her heart once again with Ji-wook. It’s a nice parallel that the show draw for us about their own relationship with each other.
I know we are all dying to find out about the relationship between both families, and there’s definitely one, but I won’t jump into conclusions until I have more information about Bong-hee’s family situation and the fire that took Ji-wook’s parents. I also don’t want to spend the next couple of weeks dreading that maybe they will have to deal with the “lead parents murdered by other lead parents” troupe. I won’t do it, and actually I want to believe the show won’t be this obvious since it’s already proven to be rather original in its storytelling. On this I want to trust the writer who I know from shows like Protect the Boss and Remember Me (aka Hello Monster), and those didn’t disappointed, so there’s hope I say!
For now I’m looking forward to see more exciting and flirty moments between Bong-hee and Ji-wook. This is the facet where they can be happy, sweet and everything is possible as long as they are together. I want them to nurture it because then they will become a solid unit that no matter what happens, will remain and work on their personal and professional problems as a team.
And no, I did not miss that invitation to sleep together he throw her way. Noh Ji-wook, you cheeky and mischievous bastard. Keep them coming! (´⌣`ʃƪ)
