did i mention how much i loved that Eun Tak was portrayed as doing everything for herself?
like, the woman she became wasn’t the result of Shin’s love, or knowing Shin, or him making her stronger etc because she didn’t remember him
that beautiful woman we meet at the age of 29 is all of her own creation. her goals, her strength and her willpower.
and going from that young girl who just needed someone to lean on, to a grown woman who helped herself throughout her worst, i think it was some really beautiful character development.
there was no cheesy “his love made me stronger”, it was her own love that made her the person she became.
