just putting this out there
I really don’t give a shit if you like Rika
I know she’s mentally ill
I know she needs to go to a psych ward probably and she deserves mental help and she technically wasn’t “in her right mind” when she did all those things.
But you know what else I know? No matter what, she ruined both V and Saeran’s lives. She caused physical and/or mental trauma for both of them. You can argue that it was unintentional, but it’s true and cannot be denied and the damage has been done to b o t h of them. Saeran and Jihyun are both victims of abuse, just like Rika is a victim of mental illness.
acknowleding their abuse =/= rika hate
I don’t care how much you loved Rika’s character, I really don’t care and you can love her all you want but for the love of God, don’t invalidate the abuse inflicted upon Saeran and Jihyun. It’s there and it’s valid as ever.
