There is something so heartwrenchingly loyal about the way Min Hyuk follows Bong Soon into the darknened, shady alleys of Dobong-dong in the middle of the night wearing what is basically his pyjamas as if he were a loyal puppy so afraid of losing his master that he didn’t even dare to change his clothes.
This is such a poignant moment because it shows why Min Hyuk is so damn perfect for Bong Soon. GD would have never allowed BS to leave the house in the first place because his idea of protection is to keep BS hidden and sheltered, but MIN HYUK GIVES HER THE FREEDOM TO FIGHT FOR HERSELF AND FOR WHAT SHE BELIEVES IN. He knows she doesn’t need a keeper and isn’t arrogant enough to think he could keep her, but that doesn’t mean he can’t protect her and look after her silently from afar.
This is the first time Bong Soon openly adresses her super powers in front of someone who isn’t her family or her best friend, and it’s only fitting that person is Min Hyuk. She is so damn honest and frank with him about what she wants to do, and though BS might not realize it yet, it’s because deep down she already knows that MH would understand her and wouldn’t judge nor deter her. And he doesn’t. He really does get her because they are so freaking similar it’s unreal - just like BS he wants to face his enemies head-on. So when he sees her determination and willingness to fight and use the powers she was so afraid to reveal until now, HE RESPECTS HER CHOICE AND FROM HIS EQUALLY DETERMINED EXPRESSION IT’S CLEAR THAT HE WILL BE THERE, FIGHTING BY HER SIDE AND HAVING HER BACK. From now on, they are in this together.
