This feels like an entirely different drama now cuz the stakes have never been higher. It sort of makes you wonder if WR found a whole new way to “destroy everything” by starting with the people who didn’t do him any harm. If you think about it – hurting YW would be far more painful to KC than having his own father set out to destroy him. I can’t make out if his grin here is cuz he just realized what would hurt his offspring more or if he just found her interesting cuz she has so much goodness inside of her that his demon side sees that as a challenge. Maybe he even heard her heart calling out to KC so that smirk could mean “I caught the perfect bait.” Anyway you look at it – it’s one of the most chilling scenes so far and with a face as good looking as his – that is no easy task. First time I have to constantly remind myself not to swoon over a demon character, but just look at him – who can help it.
When it comes to WR, let’s just hope being demon doesn’t make him immune to every ounce of emotion other than rage. Just like YW was able to calm the beast inside of KC, I can’t wait till the evil inside of WR can be subdued by paternal love. I hope the minute WR realizes KC is his son, whatever evil that resides in him will not be able to harm the child who needs to feel the love of his birth parent for the first time in his life. (I wrote this before E14 aired so scratch all that – looks like demon spirit trumps all other emotions)
SJ lights the candle and says your exactly the same. WR speaks normally and replies that the years show on SJ’s face. SJ says cuz there is no human who can win against time. WR mutters about how humans arent able to live 100 years and disappear and never get to live for a thousandyears-there is nothing to feel too bad about. SJ asks why did you come back – did you really become a thousand year demon. WR says before I answer I will ask one thing – in the woods today I saw someone very strange. he wasnt human or a gumiho. he had your bead bracelet- who is he? who is it?
KC runs thru the streets looking for YW. he finds her and she says you are late. he asks are you Dam YW? she smiles and scratches her head looking bashful. then she looks at him. he doesnt blink and keeps staring in surprise
the woman in the hat is watching SR perform on her drums.
KC steps closer looking at her up and down. he asks – why did you come out (dressed) like this? YW: I wear this often. why – are these clothes weird/strange? he grunts yes. YW: what is weird. he says “just – all.” she walks off in anger so he asks where are you going. she says you said it was weird so you wont want to be with a weird girl so he says that’s not the meaning of weird I meant. YW: then how am I weird? KC: it doesnt seem like you – it doesnt seem like you and someone else so it felt unfamiliar -that’s what i meant. YW: this is me too. KC: ok dont get mad. she sighs and says I dont know what I was expecting from you. she walks off so he holds her sleeve and asks where are you going now. she says to buy the wish to hang on the lantern.
they go and stand in front of all the lanterns with wishes written on them hanging down. she asks how is it. do you like it. KC: it’s great – it’s perfect. what about your wish lantern? YW: we just hung it now. KC: wasnt that my wish lantern? YW: what are you saying – that’s my wish lantern. for you to hurry and find the gu family book and become human – that’s my wish. he keeps staring at her with so much love in his eyes so she says stop looking at me or my face will have a hole on it. he finally smiles and looks up too – then they stare and smile at each other
WR stands in the street watching the two of them. he keeps staring at KC and KC senses him and looks over.
SR finishes her drum routine. people clap. CJ too. GW asks how was it. you wanted to see it. are you satisfied. the woman speaks Japanese so I have no idea what she is saying. she gets up to leave and SR understood what she said cuz SR says sorry I did my best so I am sorry you didn’t like it. GW asks what is this – did you say you didn’t like the drums. the guy translates the woman said it wasn’t great so WS rubs it in and repeats it saying “it’s too bad that the best had to hear she wasnt great. how could this happen” CJ speaks up and says what WS said is correct – how could this happen. she asks the guest to answer what was so average about it. she lists all the technical stuff about how great the sound was and stuff for someone who picked up the sticks after 10 yrs so what part did you not like. SR says sorry she is a young gisaeng and doesnt know her place but the woman says it was wrong. she lists what was wrong with the drumming and defends her earlier comment in Korean this time. the guy looks over at SR and says excuse us. GW says SR messed this up well. he gets up and leaves. WS smirks.
GW apologizes for the break in fun. the guy says the woman did have fun. GW says he didnt know the woman spoke Korean so well so the guy says she learned Korean with her deceased husband for a long time and I taught her too. GW says I didnt know that and almost mistook her for Korean. he watches her walk by.
SB says SR came. SR apologizes but GW yells at her to retire from now on from performing in front of guests cuz she couldnt control a young insolent gisaeng and in front of an important guest she didnt perform her best. she says sorry but he says you should apologize to my guest. come tm morning and apologize to her since it’s too late tonight
CJ is walking down the street with the maid from the gisaeng house. CJ remembers the past when TS, KC, her maid all gathered here. TS made a wish for the health of his parents and family and the Inn. they all finish the rest of his sentence. KC asks how can you make the same wish every year. TS says cuz they are the most precious to me. KC says dont do that and starting from today add one more line – please let me meet a pretty girl and get married. CJ says I already wrote that as my wish cuz I cant make my only brother end up an old bachelor. they all laugh when TS grabs KC in a neck hold for joking around.
KC runs into CJ when he is next to YW. he calls out CJ. YW watches them. CJ turns around and runs into a drunk man. she says sorry to him but he grabs her wrist and says look at this gisaeng. are you trying to entice me to pour a drink for me – is that it? you are really pretty. KC goes over and makes the guy let go and tells him to go home to his wife or go sleep.
KC escorts CJ back to the gisaeng house. he asks are you still scared of me? cuz of what I looked like back then-are you still like this. sorry I didn’t tell you earlier. I didnt know how to explain it to you so I hesitated. she interrupts and asks does that person know too – that girl who was next to you awhile ago – that girl Dam YW – does she know about what you are? he says yes. she says thanks for helping today. I will repay by pouring you a drink when you stop by one day. he calls out her name and starts to say how she shouldnt say that but she interrupts and says a gisaeng said she would repay with a drink so what is so wrong with that. KC: dont talk like that- whatever clothes you wear – wherever you live – to me – you are always Park CJ so dont act like you arent you – don’t talk like that. CJ: what you are saying – does that mean a gisaeng shouldnt act like a gisaeng and live? a monster who acts like he isnt a monster- like someone who lives like he is a person. which side is harder? till the end pretending like you arent. when she goes in she stops cuz she wants to look back.
KC walks back and it’s almost dawn. YW has changed into her normal outfit and stands outside waiting holding her outfit in her hand. they stare at each other. she runs over and asks did you take her home well. he says yes. you came back to the person I know too. she nods yes. he says let’s go. YW: she is the most precious person to you huh? that meaning that could never change. CJ is that kind of person huh? sorry I said something difficult. she walks off but he runs to her and makes her turn around to face him. the chicken that he is – he blurts out I am hungry. since it’s daylight – should we go eat some soup before we go back
gong and gon here the report from the kid that KC and YW stayed out all night. the kid says the two of them didnt come back last night. gon is furious and says I will kill him (KC) so gong stops him with his broom and tells the kid to hold him back. gon says dont stop me. I am going right now to kill KC. gong says if PJ hears they both will die. KC wont be the only one in trouble YW could be in trouble too. PJ comes over and says you are here. gon and the kid bow to him. gong says good morning to him. PJ asks is something going on. gong lies and says nothing is going on. we were just doing some light exercising with gon. werent we gon? gon: yes we were. PJ asks Gon if YW didnt wake up yet so gong says I sent her on an errand early this morning. PJ asks then what about KC so gong says I sent both of them together. didnt I gon? Gon backs him up thru gritted teeth. PJ asks to see YW when she comes back. gong says to Gon – you held it in well. a student runs over for Gon. gon asks what’s going on. the guy says student kim.
they find Kim hanging sideways from a tree with the life sucked out of him. TS comes over and sees it too. PJ asks gong where he sent YW and KC on their errand. where are those two right now?
KC is almost done eating so she asks do you want some more of mine. KC: why? arent you hungry? she doesnt have much of an appetite cuz it’s too early. he pours hers into his and says you should eat breakfast well though. some men cancel their orders cuz they say they lost their appetite cuz of trash. they are talking about KC cuz they think he killed MS so YW gets angry and asks are you saying that to us right now. they call KC trash cuz he repaid kindness with murder so she gets up and goes over to them. YW yells at them saying who are you saying repaid kindness with murder but KC tries to tell her to stop. she says you should tell people it’s not true now. how much longer are you going to live as a criminal with that misunderstanding. (she doesn’t want KC to be misunderstood as MS’s killer anymore) but he says it is true my lord died cuz of me and it’s true that I wasnt able to stop it. even if I get insulted and get fingers pointed at me – I have nothing to say. if you just look at the outcome -it’s true i wasnt able to protect the lord. the man tells KC not to show up at the village again or be careful of the backstabbing. she high kicks the guy right in his face and tells him to be careful mouthing off. KC stops him from hitting YW and says if you understood then you stop too.
M comes over with his men and says why is it so loud this morning. who is this – isnt it CKC. KC says were you alive? M: of course I am alive. what is going on this morning. M was talking to the other two guys but his guy yells at KC saying our hyungnim is asking what’s going on so M hits him. M says not these two (KC and YW) those two. everyone is confused as M yells at the two troubemakers and insults them and sticks up for KC saying how dare you call him trash. so KC is shocked along with M’s men. M calls KC his precious dongsang and makes the two get lost. M puts his hand on KC’s tummy and worries that he might have gotten indigestion. His men want to know if M doesn’t feel well cuz that is CKC. M makes him add hyungnim after KC from now on. KC asks why are you acting like this – it’s gross. M says how he owes him a debt of life and calls KC his savior so YW asks what that is. KC tells him to keep quiet about it. M says of course – if a dongsang says to do that then I have to keep quiet. call me whenever you need me from here on and whoever wherever whatever happens I will settle things. got that? he winks at KC
they walk off and M waves bye at them and says go well see you soon. YW says it must be nice for you to have such a thoughtful hyungnim. gon finds them and she hides her outfit. she asks what brings him here. he says her dad is urgently looking for her. she asks have I been caught by dad that I stayed out all night. was KC caught too. KC: there is no way. suddenly he gets scared and asks did I get caught too? gon says Kim was discovered dead.
the body is laid out and KC goes to the room. student asks what are you going to do. KC asks to see the body with his own eyes. let me see. but the student says before that answer this – where and what were you doing last night. TS asks the student- what are you all doing -how can you be this rude to someone who came to pay his respects to the deceased. student says we have to know and tells KC to answer -where and what were you doing last night
YW tells her dad how KC was with her all night. PJ: you were with KC all night? what does that mean? YW: we went to the lantern festival and stayed out all night looking at the lanterns. PJ yells at her. are you in your right mind right now? cuz they are all living in fear that KC will be found and dragged off by GW for killing MS so they have to be careful and not appear in public but she went to the festival with him . she explains it was cuz she felt bad since KC couldnt get along with the other students well ever since he came in. every day he gets misunderstood and people talk about him. PJ says why do you have that kind of feeling for KC. why do you not know how your father feels? up to now you were a daughter who didnt do those things so I always trusted you and respected your thoughts but… she cuts in and says “but siding with KC – does that mean you cant trust or respect what i think of KC? PJ says he is very disappointed in her. YW: I am sorry father but.. he wont let her say another word and walks out
TS meets him and says I decided. PJ asks did you think on it enough. TS says cuz of what happened today (Kim’s death) he didnt think it would be good to drag out more time. PJ asks do you think Kim’s death was caused by GW? is that why? TS: i heard GW knows KC’s identity -if he is committing those terrible murders then it means he is trying to frame KC. I will go to the Inn so tell me what I have to do.
the woman is mixing something when SR goes to see her.the woman invites her to sit and asks what brings you here. SR apologizes for her young gisaeng. the woman says I heard you’ve been at the gisaeng house a long time. SR says it’s been 22 or 23 yrs. the woman says she was moved by the drums – you are impressive since you havent played in 10 yrs. SR asks then why she didnt say that yesterday. the woman knew she could never invite SR over so she made that fuss so that SR would come like this. SR says then the woman should be the one to apologize. SR gets ready to leave but the woman asks to be invited to the gisaeng house once. SR says regular women aren’t allowed in. it’s not a place for you to have fun looking around. the woman says what if I want to go just once. SR says there are only two ways a woman can come in – become a gisaeng or the owner. when SR leaves the woman repeats that
GW asks where did I see her before – she looks familiar like I know her for sure. SB offers to find out about her so GW says do it carefully cuz dont forget we still have to look good in front of her. SB says dont worry and leaves. GW repeats where did I see her before
the woman in the hat disrobes to bathe and she has the tattoo on her shoulder and puncture scars.
PJ and gong go inside to meet with gon, TS, KC, and YW. KC bows to PJ but he looks angry. PJ tells them TS is leaving here for the time being so KC asks where is he going. PJ says to the Inn. TS explains someone has to go inside next to GW and find out what he really intends to do – that big picture he is planning. KC: so are you saying you will do that? alone? TS: GW still doesnt know that I am no longer under the spell (hypnosis). KC says to PJ: send me instead – I will go. PJ says you cant – did you forget that the death of MS is still on your hands. so you keep doing what teacher gong told you to do. KC: student kim died too – people are still dying in the woods and no one knows who is doing it. PJ puts Gon in charge of finding that out (who the killer is). Gon agrees to take on the job. then PJ tells YW- as soon as TS comes back from his work you will be getting married to him so know that. KC, gong, TS, and most of all Gon look on with shock. (Gon didnt see this rival coming cuz he was clueless about TS – Gon’s eyes got really big) YW says father this is too sudden. why are you saying that suddenly? but PJ says it wasnt sudden. from a long time ago MS and I already made this promise. YW: but father. he interrupts and says from here on – step back from your other duties and training at the school so you can get ready to be a wife in body and behavior. everyone hope for TS to succeed safely. he calls and end to the meeting and leaves. gong follows him. KC and YW look at each other. Gon looks pretty shaken too.
gong asks if PJ had to go so far and say such things. PJ says if I didnt then later on it will be harder for them to handle it
YW runs off and gon chases after her
TS looks at KC worried.
YW goes to her room and gon asks to go inside. he sees her sitting by her dress crying. she says I want to be alone. when he leaves she starts sobbing. gon is outside and can hear that
CJ practices her drumming. she remembers when KC looked like a monster and she yelled for him to go away and that she doesnt like him. she drums so hard while crying she drops the sticks. she mutters how she is the one who said she doesnt like KC and chased him away saying he is a monster. there is a guest for her
CJ goes and her maid is there with GW. he says tells her to come in. the maid is her present. the maid says I got the order to serve you here from today on. GW: since I gave you a present you have to repay me – come over and pour me a drink. she says how is she my present – she was mine and you stole her. WS : what did I say – i told you she was insolent and brazen. GW: then what present do i have to give you to make you happy. she says will you give back the Inn you stole then my heart will be comforted somewhat. WS yells at her so CJ continues: before that get rid of that girl next to you then my mood will be better. WS asks him how much longer are you going to listen to her outrageousness. so GW tells WS to go out -didnt you hear? CJ said for me to get rid of you. go out. WS asks how can you treat me like this but he yells at her to get out. WS glares at CJ on her way out. GW asks will you pour me a drink now. CJ goes over and she does. he says you are enduring well more than I thought. she says you taught me -for the sake of staying alive – to do everything I can. GW: I did. CJ: so I decided to do that. no matter what i have to do – I will stay alive till the end and do my best to stab you in the heart and kill you with my own hands. he likes the look in her eyes. he says I will wait – I will keep you by my side until the day you stick that knife in my heart.
KC is counting and gong asks why his face looks so disturbed. KC is startled and tells gong to go around making some noise so people arent alarmed. gong asks if KC cant focus cuz of the decision to get YW married off. KC says that’s not it. gong asks how much he counted. KC says I think I counted around 6,000. gong: how much did you count up to with the bracelet off. KC: how can you say such a thing – taking off my bracelet- inside the school and where there are people I promised him (PJ) to never to take the bracelet off. gong: you did? KC: yes i did. gong: keep counting beans. he turns to leave but asks what is cuz of YW? even without the bracelet the reason that you didnt change form. so that’s it. how could that happen. he wanders off
flashback shows that KC already tested that theory. while YW was napping on his shoulder he took the bracelet off. he stayed the same. he did that too when they stared at the lanterns. he didn’t change cuz he was with her.
KC narrates –to tell the truth- I don’t know the reason why either. why when YW is next to me that happens. flashback to YW taking his hand in his gumiho form and him becoming normal again in front of everyone
WR shows up at the school and looks at KC. KC senses it. KC turns around and asks who are you. WR just grins. KC gets up and spills beans everywhere. when he looks back WR is already gone
PJ opens the door so SS goes and meets everyone in a room – gon, TS, and gong. PJ orders them to say hello to SS. gon, gong, and TS each introduce themselves saying their names and what kind of identification they have as men of honor. TS says how he has his father’s ID nametag. camera shows that SR is there too and says hello. she says which identification name tag she has too. PJ says how the four of them swear to be SS’s shadows and to accept them. all five bow. SS thanks them all. since there are all of you to go on the road with me-i dont know if the road will be paved with thorns. it might be a lonely path where no one knows you. (as in they may not get recognition for their good deeds) PJ says with the heart that is thinking of the country -how could there be just comfortable roads? how can you go on that thorny road alone. gong says if our strengths can be of help. he pledges the rest of his life. SR says I will be your ears. TS says even with my life – I will be your walking stick (the one blind people use to guide their path) PJ asks SS to accept their meaning.
TS goes and meets with GW. GW: so you came. TS says you said it was my last chance – if I fail this time too -you said something terrible would happen to my sister and threatened me. GW asks did you find out what SS is going to do with the 5000 nyang. TS says I found out. GW: what is it? TS: they are going to build ships. it doesnt seem like regular ships.
TS had asked can I tell GW that? SS explains that TS has to give that much information for GW to believe. and tells TS what he needs to find out – if GW is selling information or keeping something.
TS shows what he brought from SS and GW looks at the drawing of the ship.
SJ was knocked down and gets up from the floor. he remembers how WR asked who is that kid? SJ: SH’s son. WR: SH? SJ: the human girl you married. WR remembers her and asks did she have a son. SJ says he is your son too. after that happened to you, SH had your son alone. WR asks where she is now. SJ said she died soon after giving birth. WR: died? SJ: yes. WR: what a waste – I wanted to break her neck myself. SJ looks horrified and says look here WR. WR: you asked why I came back? it’s for the sake of destroying everything. his eyes glow red and he threw SJ against the wall. SR remembers that conversation and tries to get up saying – no – KC.
*since this scene opened the episode, it means WR knew KC was his son the entire time and that’s why he stalked KC twice
YW hears the report that they couldnt see KC from a while ago. kid says he went to go tell him to eat dinner but he wasnt there. I looked everywhere and he isnt here. other student says he is probably hiding in the woods again and killing people. she asks how he could say such things, but he says you should be careful too -you might get backstabbed by him one day. YW asks dont you remember what teacher gong said – without evidence or proof dont accuse someone. student asks why are you and teacher gong taking his side and not ours. he isnt a human. she asks why are you dividing sides to this side and that side. how is KC on that side? he says cuz KC isnt human. she says he wants to become a person and came here. like you all came here to live like people. i’m not taking KC’s side. if you were in his situation I would be defending you too. she turns and walks off
PJ asks did you just stand there and watch YW go into the woods alone? (as in you didn’t stop her) the student says sorry she just took off before we could stop her. PJ says gon’s name in a pleading way so gon says I will go and come back. he tells the student to follow and leaves to get YW
YW is in the woods calling out to KC. someone is watching her.
KC went to go see SJ. he asks are you inside? he runs in and the place is empty. he hears a sound and goes to the library where SJ is slumped over. KC asks why are you like this – who did this. SJ says hurry and get away – run away to somewhere far from here. KC – what are you saying run away. SJ says he showed up to kill you. KC asks who? SJ says WR – your father. hurry and run away to somewhere he cant find you- run to somewhere far away -KC ya – hurry.
YW hears leaves rustling and calls out to KC. WR’s eyes are glowing red. she asks who is there. show yourself right now. he growls and runs around to distract and disorient her. she gives chase.
KC runs out of the house and takes off
YW falls down and her hair comes undone. she hears footsteps. she looks up and faces WR. KC hears her calling out for him – help me KC. KC says YW.
WR goes over to her and gets down on one knee to her eye level. he touches her face – lifts her chin and smiles.
KC says YW
How wrong is it that you sort of wish you were watching an alternate bizarre drama where WR falls in love with YW cuz omg they look good together. When he tilted her chin up and looked at her like that, I was like “yo – daddy gumiho – wipe that cheeky grin off your face cuz that isn’t how you stare at your future daughter in law.”
Sigh…CJH could have chemistry with a plant even – the guy oozes charisma every time he grins. Why did he have to come back being so bad. He really is evil right now cuz only a demon would want to kill his own son and best friend. Here is hoping whatever it is about YW that can tame the beast inside KC also works on WR so that he spares her life. Maybe even go so far as to help him have some human emotions again and not want to kill his only living child.
I get why Gon is so shocked about having TS has a rival now. All this time he thought KC was his only contender for her affections and wasn’t that worried cuz in the end he knew PJ would never approve of KC as a son in law in his current state of being half gumiho. With TS though Gon doesn’t have a fighting chance. TS is of noble birth just like YW so that puts Gon at a disadvantage cuz he doesn’t have status. With PJ’s approval of their marriage, I bet Gon is wondering right about now – is it better to lose YW to someone she really loves or will it be more painful to watch her marrying someone she has no feelings for at all. I bet she likes Gon more than she likes TS. I included more photos of Gon tonight cuz I have a feeling it’s going to be a turning point for him. He is going to have to face facts about his feelings for YW and let them go cuz even he should be able to admit by now that those tears she was shedding in that room all alone wasn’t meant for Gon. There is nothing like a cold reality check – watching the one you love crying over someone else just screams “let her go.”
It takes a lifetime to know some people, but others in a heartbeat. That’s what KC has been for YW. She didn’t need all those years of growing up with him to fall in love – all she needed was their first meeting as children to plant the seed. Once they met as grownups, with each encounter, that seed took root and began to grow. Her tears, concerns, and growing feelings just made her emotions even stronger for him. It took KC a while to catch up, but lately he has been running towards her a lot. Not just when he needed her to calm the gumiho in him either. Others around them have already sensed it, but these two are headed for that point when they have to own up to their feelings for each other. Since YW is already ahead emotionally, it would be great if KC was the one to declare his feelings aloud to her first. She has tread cautiously all this time cuz of SJ’s warnings about their fate so I am really hoping KC is the one to just make that leap.
I love how he allows himself to be vulnerable around her. he opened up to her about why he didn’t want to be curious about his birth parents cuz she is the only one he trusts with his true feelings. I bet he never shared that with anyone before and judging from the smile on her face, she knows that is a privilege she should treasure.
It’s so cute – he doesnt know where to grab so he holds onto her sleeve to get her to stop when she turns away to walk off.
I wonder when we get to see both his eyes…Dont get me wrong – even with that side sweep, having him back is great, but I can’t wait to see his whole face.
starts from KC narrating “That person asked me…” Scene of KC meeting with SS when SS asks what do you want to live as now.
then KC goes out and meets YW. she asks what SS said. KC narrates “so I asked her – why” flashback of YW telling her dad KC did nothing wrong and disobeying her dad to take KC’s hand. KC narrates: why are you so good to me. YW: just cuz – for your sake I want to do anything – that is my heart now. KC narrates: I want to be a person. I want to be a person again.
PJ says you cant so YW says I will never be lenient – I will train him twice – no – three times more severely than other teachers father. just leave it up to me. PJ asks Gon to be in charge of training KC. she steps up and says how Gon and KC cant be left alone together – as soon as they meet each other’s gaze all they think about is fighting each other so she has to stand between them maintain control and train (KC) together with him (Gon). PJ warns her: do you want to see KC get kicked out? you have to know the more you are like that KC’s situation gets harder. Gon tells PJ that YW is correct over this matter- he and KC totally are not on good terms. plus that kid listens (obeys) when she is there. so please give permission so I can train KC together with her.
They take the bag of beans to KC and tell him how they are going to manage him starting from today and to count all the beans in the bag. Gon smirks watching KC look miserable.
SS sort of sounds like the lyrics to a joseon style country song as he says “how can you stop a heart that is flowing – how do you stop the wind when it’s blowing.” PJ says I am worried about the scar those two kids will have when they find out later that I killed KC’s dad. SS says something profound: thinking of being uneasy brings about an uneasy future. what we have to do -we grownups shouldnt block the road young kids have to go on. we have to open up the road (pave the way) so that they can go down a better path/direction
KC’s counting up to 1230 something as YW asks how his birth mom passed away. do you know nothing at all. KC says you are confusing me so she says sorry. he resumes counting. but she says you already counted that one so he starts over. she says if it was me I would be really curious. even though your dad’s side was like that you could have found out about your mother’s side. what household she was from or if you have relatives. KC: that person threw away her blood in the river so I am not curious at all about a person like that.
GW asks how his guests like their residence and would have prepared more if he knew that person was coming here herself. the woman is in the room as GW talks to the guy. GW brags and says how everything is in his hands (as in he is in control of the Inn and other places) so the Japanese guy says not everything -there are still things out of your reach. GW asks if he is talking about SS and that it’s not a problem and it wont take long.
GW goes outside and tells SB that those people know a lot about what’s going on around here. he tells SB to be on alert cuz they might have a rat (someone inside feeding info outside). GW seems surprised about the position the woman is holding cuz he thought it would be a guy
the guy asks if the woman with the hat is ok but she doesn’t answer
the wind blows and KC wonders what that is. YW: what?
in the woods WR wakes up as the woman sits there
KC gets up in shock and knocks over the bag of beans. his hands shake and drop the chopsticks. she asks what’s wrong – do you not feel well. he says I don’t know-something is strange – why am I like this – suddenly I am so scared.
KC goes to see Gong. Gong does a reflex test and says something is off about KC’s energy so he needs to drink some special water. he makes KC drink. KC asks are you running a medicine business. gong goes on about how it’s a dream of his and once his successor is found at school to take over for him he is going to travel around selling medicine. KC makes some joke so gong tries to take the water back but KC drinks it up. YW asks if gong has someone in mind to be his successor so Gong looks at KC and says there is one guy my eyes are going towards but his temper is bad. KC says you cant control bad tempered guys with words you have to hit them everyday to fix their bad behavior. should I beat that guy for you? Gong hits him and says no – just go and count those beans. he walks off as KC asks is my head the neighborhood hitting post. why do you always hit me? YW: you said only hitting could teach. KC: what? YW: never mind – just go and count the beans.
Sung (the kid from the kitchen) runs into KC and gets scared. he makes an excuse about forgetting to bring something and runs off. KC says hello to other students but they ignore him. he apologizes to kim – the one he tried to choke. sorry for what happened last time- I lost my senses and went overboard. the guy says you dont have to be sorry to me cuz I attacked you first.but i couldnt help it cuz it was my first time seeing a monster.
TS goes to see PJ. gong and gon are there too. PJ says I called you cuz I have something to give you so sit down. your father wanted me to give this to you. he puts down a small wrapped object. TW picks it up
flashback to MS telling PJ if something happens to me give this to TS. PJ: why are you saying such things. MS says there is no way to know what will happen. please give this and relay my words. that I love him a lot and treasure him. I would be grateful if he became a great daejangbu (one of the men of honor) and took over the Inn
Gong explains about the object. an ID as one of the men of honor. among the teachers/masters here – he (MS) was the real one. how MS saved starving citizens with the money he made and did things for the sake of the country. PJ says I am giving you that cuz I wanted you to accept what your father wanted – also for the info I will entrust on you to get from here on. the decision is up to you to take that task and we will respect your decision. TS asks please tell me – what is it that you want me to do. PJ says become GW’s person. TS is shocked
KC is counting beans up to 4860 something and remembers how the kid was scared of him and how that guy Kim called him a monster. YW fell asleep next to him so he lets her lean on his shoulder. KC says to tell the truth – I am curious too what kind of people my parents were who made me like this – how I ended up thrown away in the river. if I keep thinking about it –without me knowing that I might resent them or hate them that’s why (I don’t think about it). she woke up and heard that. KC: still thanks YW for asking. she smiles but he thinks she is sleeping still. KC looks out and wonders what that was earlier
at night in the forest WR is walking around in the dark. he goes to the cave.
TS looks at the object and remembers how PJ said you have to put your life on the line for this work – can you handle it. KC comes over and calls out his name. the two of them sit and talk. TS: how much did my father know about you. KC doesn’t know cuz TS’s father never said about that (KC’s gumiho side). TS: what does it feel like to change into that form. KC explains how his mind goes hazy – how his whole body hurts like it’s burning – I become sensitive to everything -how everything moves -I can see and hear sound at the same time. maybe that’s why – I get really hungry. he laughs so TS does too. TS asks even in that moment can you remember you are KC. KC says at first I couldn’t remember, but after a while I got used to it and knew it was me and remember. after that I could control my emotions. to tell the truth YW helped a lot. she saw me like that but wasn’t repulsed or scared of me. she kept calling me KC so it kept making me remember I was KC. it’s strange but when I am with her my heart becomes very comfortable, my pain goes down, and without a reason my anger subsides. TS says you love her. KC absentmindedly says yes but then realizes what he just said so he backtracks and says “huh? no -what do you mean love -to that kid? me? that’s not it at all TS ya. TS says you dont have to deny it – even if you do have feelings of love – she is a girl it wont be weird to have those feelings about. KC: it’s not like that I said. she is just – what do I say. TS: if it’s cuz of CJ. dont worry about it. to you – now CJ is…TS remembers seeing CJ in GW’s room so TS says now she is someone in the past. KC asks what are you talking about – a person from the past. you and CJ could never be someone from the past to me. you are my onlyfamily and friend -people I should protect. but TS says to shed that now -from the moment father passed away – you and me and CJ -our lives were divided into other fates. like you cant turn back time, a fate that has already been divided cant be turned back. KC: even though you cant turn back, you can get it back. I am going to get back the lord’s (reputation), the Inn, and the family. TS: that is for me to do. KC: the lord passed away in my place – while blocking me. TS: if it wasnt you – he would have done it for someone else and blocked. cuz father was that kind of person. so it’s not your fault KC. up to now – the kindness you have shown to my family and others – even with that much I am so grateful that I dont know how to handle it. so dont hold onto our ankles anymore and live your life. as much as the Inn is precious you are our precious friend. he put his hand on KC’s shoulder as his friend
YW goes to his room and asks are you inside KC? she looks and he isnt there. she overhears other students talking about KC. they dont feel easy about having to be trained with someone like him. what if he suddenly changes form and attacks one of us. also last night he disappeared to somewhere and returned early in the morning. we cant leave this alone. they are scared to have KC around and want to chase him out.
Gon is in the room alone when KC quietly showed up so Gon drew his sword
in the woods a man is walking and hears rustling and asks who is there. WR shows up so the man flees. he is chased and hides behind a tree but WR is there and kills the man. WR chokes him and takes his life so WR can look more human (his skin softened from gumiho to human)
SR is giving CJ drum lessons – dont grip tightly and grip lightly and the arms should look like a butterfly as she hits and where CJ’s feet stance should be. the practice is interrupted by WS so SR tells CJ not to look elsewhere during practice. SR says not to interrupt lessons and ignores WS when WS complains why CJ is getting lessons instead of her. SR keeps teaching CJ and tells her to straighten her back and stick in her chin more. WS goes over and throws down the sticks CJ was holding. SR asks what are you doing-pick those up right now. WS says I am the head gisaeng. but SR points out what does the head gisaeng do the best. she lists how WS naps – laughs the most when she mistreats others. if that is what the head gisaeng does then it is correct you are the head gisaeng here. WS asks why are you looking down on me – what did I do so wrong. SR says WS had more fun in the arms of men and pouring their drinks. and the only reason why she wanted to learn to play the instrument was to look good in front of men. that she cant pass on her knowledge about the drum to someone like her who will just treat it as a temp play toy. SR tells CJ to keep practicing what she learned and I will check tm. SR walks out. CJ tells WS to move aside cuz I have to practice. WS asks cuz you have SR’s support- do you dare to boss me around. CJ makes a crack about WS’s face – dont get so angry cuz you look terrible. so WS slaps her. CJ slaps back and threatens WS and warns her not to touch her face again. she resumes practice like WS isnt there.
maid is asking SR about what happened to CJ cuz she changed so much so SR says don’t ask anything and dont be curious. dont you hear? that girl is crying sadly right now
CJ cries as she drums
YW watches KC still trying to count but falling asleep. she goes over and waves her hand in front of his face and then gets ready to poke his eyes but grabs her wrist and knocks her down on the ground and pins her. KC: what is this? was it you? YW: yes it was me. he asks why she was hanging around in front of his eyes. YW: I was just kidding around cuz you were falling asleep. hurry and move. she tries to get up, but he pins her down and says how she shouldnt be kidding around as one of the instructors – so how will the school be able to train properly. you need to be punished. he puts his arm on her chest so she tells him to remove it. he teases she is too weak for an instructor. so she bites his hand. he yells holding his injured hand. she gets up and retorts he shouldnt have been playing around. KC: so did you have to bite me? YW: be grateful cuz I was going to kick where it really hurts, but I only bit lightly. KC retorts with sarcasm: I’m so grateful tears are blocking my view. she asks where he disappeared to last night so he says I was feeling stuffy so I got some air. YW: for the past two days I heard you go somewhere out as soon as it’s night. the students are worried. KC doesnt think they are worrying. she explains: the others dont you well so just like it took time for you to accept me they need time to accept you. you know that right? he leans in and says do you know you nag a lot these days. YW: did I? sorry. KC: also do you know this? YW: what else? he leans closer and says right now you are like a girl. why are you so calm – shouldn’t it be normal for you to throw a punch right about now. YW: are you playing around right now? she makes a fist just then but the kid runs over and says a dead person was found in the woods. KC: a person died? the kids says yes- three people. their deaths are so strange it doesn’t seem like a person did it
the 3 corpses are examined with a crowd watching. SJ sees that
GW and SB are talking about the unusual murders. SB asks when do you want to let the police know but GW says it’s not time yet. let him go crazy over the scent of blood. GW wants strange rumors about KC spread even more so the fear will spread.
SS is giving orders to his guard. my guess is about the murders. the man might as well have spoken some other language cuz all I got was to keep people’s mouths closed.
KC faces all the students. they have something to ask.
YW asks her dad to stop the students before things get out of hand. he says if I interfere and calm the students down – how long do you think that will last. over this there is nothing you or I can do for KC. KC has to earn their trust on his own
the students ask couldnt you tell us – for the past two days – you left the school at night secretly – where did you go. KC: why should I answer that? kim asks didnt you hear. some murdered bodies were discovered in the woods. KC: so? kim: the deaths are strange and don’t seem like something done by a person. what do you think of that? KC asks are you saying I did it. the leader says it’s not that we are saying that for sure but KC says it is. isnt that why you all gathered to question me. leader says we are just curious about your recent behavior so tell us. KC: I dont want to – to people who are already assuming I did it – what’s the point about explaining I didn’t do it. it will only seem like I am making excuses. even if I do make an excuse – it’s not like you will believe me. the student argues our suspicions will just get bigger if you dont say anything. KC: it doesnt matter. this isnt new. a bunch of people gathering and making one person into a fool -it’s something I’ve had to endure since childhood so suspect if you want to suspect. kim says to the leader – what did I say – I told you words wouldnt work. one student insults KC for not acting human cuz he isnt human so KC grabs him and says when I see people like you I get angry and annoyed too. gong yells for KC to let go. all the others draw their swords. gong comes over and scolds the students for drawing their swords on a fellow student. did the master teach you that? did I teach you that? he orders them to put their swords away. he makes KC let go of the guy. gong says to the head student – as the leader he shouldnt have let this happen and control the others better. Kim says it’s not the leaders fault. he only followed what we wanted. . the students say it was wrong to begin with to put someone who isnt human among them. if all of them have to be uncomfortable cuz of one person that isnt fair. gong asks for evidence that KC imposed on them – also that the proof that KC caused the deaths in the woods. if you bring even once piece of evidence KC did it then I will kick KC out myself. kim asks can you promise? gong: if your assumptions and suspicions are wrong you all kneel in front of KC and beg forgiveness. how about it? each side should put something on the line for a bet to be interesting-how about it?
KC asks how could you make that bet on your own. gong asks why – if KC’s conscience is bothering him(as in KC feels guilty cuz he did something bad). KC: not at all. gong: then what are you so worried about? KC says this is just a nuisance cuz now all the students will be keeping an eye on him. gong asks if that is a nuisance then just tell all of them where he has been going at night for the past two days. KC: I will be going now. Gong: do you want to stay here for a long time with YW? KC turns around so gong says then learn to get along with others well first.
gon is waiting outside when KC comes out. he says just to reveal it and come clean now, but KC turns around and says you startled me. you didnt tell YW yet right? gon: you said to keep it a secret. KC: that’s right – it is a secret- until I say it’s ok – no matter what don’t tell anyone. got that? see you later. he runs off and YW comes over and asks gon – what is it? gon: what are you talking about? YW: what is that secret talk with KC? gon says there is no secret. she says look at this – your gaze is shaking. while I am saying it nicely -reveal it – what is the secret
SR goes to the Inn to meet with GW. she asks why he wanted to meet her. he says to discuss the festival in a few days cuz he has important guests and wants it to be special. she already knew about his guests from abroad so he says you always found out news quickly. she says a lot of people drop by the gisaeng house so she hears things. (gets a lot of news from people who overheard) he wants to see her play the drums so she says it’s been 10 yrs since she stopped doing that but GW wants her to do it again cuz his guest requested that especially. flashback shows the man asking GW to ask SR to play the drums. the woman in the hat is making that request
KC sneaks outside at night and kim follows him. the other one tells kim to be careful.
KC senses he is being followed and runs off.
kim hears something in the bush and asks who is there and sees WR’s eyes glow red so kim runs off scared. KC comes over and tells him to be quiet. WR shows up hidden behind some leaves so KC asks who are you – come out. WR growls. KC’s bracelet glows red. kim says I think he has disappeared. KC says so why did you follow me. kim: cuz you are acting suspicious each night. YW comes over and says there is nothing to be suspicious about. cuz KC sensed some strange energy in the woods, he went on patrol with Gon ever since the day before. KC accuses gon of not being able to keep secrets -why didnt you just go around telling the whole neighborhood? gon: it wasnt cuz I couldnt keep secrets. YW says I am just good at getting secrets out. why keep this a secret? and get suspicions from the others. KC says I dont know the identity yet so I didnt want to alarm for nothing. they are already scared of me but if they know about someone that hasnt been identified going around killing it will cause more uproar. YW asks if Kim understands now. she makes kim keep it a secret from the other students until the identity of the culprit in the woods is known. you can do that much right? kim agrees
SJ senses something in his home and goes down to his library calling out did someone come in? he sees WR in the dark and asks who is it? WR steps up and says it’s me. SJ: are you WR? WR: yes it’s me. he smiles but it’s evil.
next day at the school KC goes into eat and there is a table set apart from the others. he sits down to eat but the others scoot down. one of them gets up and leaves. KC yells I will eat well. kim goes over and eats across from KC.
gong is outside talking about how if you look at it – it seems like thousands but if you look carefully there is just one
YW opens a box and there is a hanbok inside.
YW tells him about the lantern festival and how she is thinking of going down to the village at night and hanging a lantern with her wish. dont you want to go with me? KC agrees to go. she tells him where to meet. he asks aren’t we going down together but she says I have some business in the village first so let’s meet at night later. he smiles when she leaves. he lost count again and starts over with the beans. the kid comes over and says a guest came. it’s CJ’s former maid.
the gisaengs are talking about the festival and how CJ is going to be chosen so they worry “what about WS?”
CJ is dressed as a gisaeng for her rite. she narrates about her name and her new gisaeng name and how she is going to live as a gisaeng from now on. SR says with this you are now a formal gisaeng here.
the maid says how CJ told her not to tell others but I thought you should know so I ran over– she will become a full fledged gisaeng and attend the festival so you should meet her once. KC takes off running
CJ is taken down the street riding on a horse covered with flowers. the man yells for people to get out of the way. KC runs out and sees her. CJ goes to the Inn and all her former servants cry over her. she gets off the horse and looks up at the Inn. SR gets out and watches CJ and says don’t let your feelings be known. aside from a smile – wipe away other emotions from your face. CJ is about to take a step when KC calls out to her. she looks for him among the crowd and sees him. she turns away and wont turn around even though he calls her name right behind her. she controls her emotions and turns around asking formally “what is it that you need from me. if you need to see me then come to the gisaeng house.” she goes inside the Inn.
KC sits outside the Inn
YW is dressed in hanbok and looking for him in the village
it gets dark and she is still looking for him. he is walking back in the dark and remembers how she asked him to hang a lantern with her and how she would wait in the village. he takes off running and looks for her
YW gets angry waiting and kicks a basket. it hits some older men so she says sorry like a guy would. she mutters “what is this – did he forget the time?” suddenly she sees KC coming and says “it’s KC.” he runs past her and knocks her cover off. he doesnt recognize her. he says “sorry” in a hurry and was about to run off but she calls his name so he stops and turns around to look at her. he takes in her whole outfit. she smiles and says you are late. he just stands there stunned as she smiles at him. he is too flabbergasted to speak
SS’s voice narrates: how can you stop a heart that’s flowing – how can you stop the wind that’s blowing.
WR stares at KC with YW and asks: who is it? I asked who is that kid.
GW looks at the woman in the hat and says how she looks familiar – that he almost mistook her for someone
YW: that you hurry and find the gu family book and become a person – it’s my wish
YW walks away from KC and he runs after her
YW: she is the most precious person to you huh? and that meaning will never change
TS says I decided – I will go to the Inn
KC: who are you?
WR grins at KC
WR: ask me why I came back – for the sake of destroying everything.
For someone who lost his real father even before birth, KC is not running out of father figures. Men he can look up to and respect cuz they respected him back. Watching him pour his heart out to SS and have the wise man give him comforting words and advice just made my tears brim to the surface along with KC. I feel like he is so blessed to have someone like SS in his life along with his steady source of solace YW as KC wades through the most trying time of his life. Up to now, I couldn’t wait for his real father to come back, but now that I saw a glimpse of what’s in store for us next week, I sort of wish WR would stay put and not complicate KC’s life even more. I feel an avalanche of events headed our way and the only hope I can hang onto to brace myself is KC and YW’s undying faith in each other – wonder if it’s enough though.
starts from PJ asking if that kid can really become human – will he really not be dangerous around people. SJ says you are worried about your daughter. I told her if she could avoid it to avoid it. cuz between the two one could die. to avoid it. PJ: could die? SJ says fate that has already started – it cant be stopped by a human’s strength – it’s not something that should be stopped. but all PJ hears is “could die”
KC is chained up and calls out to CJ and she calls out to him. TS comes over as KC’s voice tells gong that could never happen – TS and CJ would never betray me. TS says I came to cut your throat KC- forgive me KC. KC tells him not to take the bracelet off but he does. KC feels pain. the wind rustles and gains strength around them.
YW stops and Gon asks what’s wrong. she says didn’t you hear that sound. he says no I didnt hear it.
KC changes form and breaks the chains. CJ and TS are more terrified than the others. M tries to kill him but KC just knocks him down. TS attacks and KC wounds him. he looks down at his hands and looks over at TS. KC calls out TS and takes a step but she throws leaves and rocks at him saying get away – get away from my brother – get away. dont come close – get away. I don’t like you.
YW and Gon run over
CJ faints. KC keeps calling her name. M gets up to attack again with his men when KC is distracted but KC senses it.
there is fighting and yelling off screen
YW and Gon get there and the men are all wounded. YW asks what happened to you. M says KC. Gon shows her the bead bracelet. that guy changed again and I dont see CJ
TS staggers in the wood bleeding saying CJ- my sister. He falls down
SS shows up and says KC left? PJ: yes he did. SS asks how? when I left him in your care cuz i trusted you so how? PJ says I couldnt contain him. if I keep a kid I cant control -that the bowl would break. SS: that wasnt the problem it was your heart. student reports urgent news about GW’s men near that location. SS asks if that is where KC went. student says yes. PJ says call Gon but the guy says I cant see him from a while ago. PJ: what?
gon and YW hide and see GW’s men and she thinks they are chasing KC too – how did they know where KC was headed. we better hurry Gon. he says but how do we know where he is. YW: I know where they would have gone (KC and CJ)
KC took CJ to the cave in the garden. she wakes up and he says it’s me KC. she says you are KC –how? weren’t you human? KC: sorry for showing you this side. she cries and says where is my brother. did you kill my brother. did you do that? he gets up but she says go away – don’t get close. you aren’t KC. there is no way KC would be a monster like you. he wouldn’t have killed brother. she runs out
she doesn’t know how to leave and hears KC screaming inside so she just runs in any direction
YW and gon run over
CJ is running through the woods.
GW’s men are giving chase
CJ falls down and stops.
YW says what’s going on- there was a road here for sure to the moonlight garden- why cant I see the road. gon says we passed this way a while ago.
SB says who is this. aren’t you the dead Inn girl. she is surrounded by his men
SR hears they are looking but couldnt find her yet. SR says the longer it takes CJ will be in danger. her servant says I dont know what’s going on but GW’s men are all over the woods.
GW looks at all the men wounded in M’s group. he asks if all of this was KC’s doing. M says you might not believe it but it really is. as soon as TS took his bracelet off in a flash he changed into a monster. CJ listens as M says KC changed. how he kept attacking them without stopping. GW remembers WR. SB thinks KC could be the son of the deceased SH –cuz he is about the age since it was 20yrs ago. GW: nonsense – how could that happen. he asks CJ where is KC now. she says I don’t know. SB says she was lost in the woods and we caught her. she really didn’t know the way. they bring TS over. she tries to go to him but they hold her back. GW says you try to run away from me. did you think that was possible. TS begs free my sister – I will do everything you ask so please. GW says drag him away to jail. CJ says don’t but GW says then remember where KC was but she says I really cant remember. cuz the woods all look alike so I cant find the way. GW says then your brother’s neck will be hanging by tm morning. he orders TS dragged away. GW says to SB – I have a place to drop by so clean up this mess and follow me. SB says what should I do with her so GW says take her to his place.
M says let’s go but SB’s men kill all of M and his men. CJ watches horrified
GW goes to see PJ. GW says it’s been a long time. PJ says I heard you were at the Inn. GW says but you didn’t visit once. that makes me sad. PJ asks why did you come. GW asks why didnt you kill SH 20 yrs ago. why didnt you kill her there and leave an offspring. PJ says I wont kill an innocent with my sword. GW asks so you left it alone so that monster could be born – Choi KC. so he really is SH’s son. isnt he? PJ says go back now but GW puts his hand on his shoulder asking what are you thinking to cover for KC (as in support and watch over him). arent you the one who killed his father. what are you planning. his students say take your hand away but PJ orders them to put their swords back. PJ says you should go now that would be good. GW says I know you are planning something with the admiral. that he knows they took the 5000 nyang and something about what they are making -something smells suspicious. if you and him are planning treason (i dont know the rest) PJ orders his students to draw their swords. GW makes a threat about how one day he will make PJ realize something. GW and his men leave
PJ goes in and tells SS to stay here and then go down to the mountain early tm. cuz GW might have put a lookout.
Gon says it’s really late and to go back now but she says I am worried about him cuz the bracelet is gone he will be very troubled right now
KC sits in the cave and remembers CJ saying you aren’t KC he wouldn’t be a monster like you. he looks at his wrist
KC goes out where M’s men lay dead. KC looks everywhere for the bracelet. he sniffs and smells that YW had been here. he is about to leave when M says save me. KC is about to leave but turns back to M. M says save me. KC: why should I when you tried to kill me so why should I save you. M: I was wrong – I committed a sin that deserves death. KC says how M took money from the poor and sided with GW so it’s better I let you die to do a favor for the world so just die. M yells out please save me once so KC stops and turns back. he takes out the knife from M and holds it out so M screams.
SS is sitting and writing something.
at night the students are on guard and one tells the kid to go in now but the kid says no I’m still ok. the guy says to do it for another hour and then go in.
KC sneaks in and the kid runs over asking who is there. KC is surrounded and they all ask who are you. KC hides his face. they say to reveal yourself. he stands and faces them. they back off scared.
PJ comes out and asks what is going on. KC growls at him
SS senses something outside
student tells PJ it’s KC. PJ remembers WR when he killed the men. PJ goes over and asks why did you show up like this. KC says I came to meet YW – let me meet YW. PJ says no not in that state. KC yells I have to meet YW. a student attacks so KC takes him down and pins his neck. he says stay back if someone tries to kill me I will kill too. PJ yells what are you doing – let him go right now. KC: I dont want to. PJ: must you take a life? KC: that I have to do it first – now I know. PJ: I have no choice but to cut you down then. he pulls his sword and says I will say it one more time let him go. YW yells you cant father. no father you cant – put your sword back. PJ says cant you see he isnt human now so move. she says I dont want to. you said in the world there are no bad people – just bad situations. KC is like that too – he didnt change cuz he was bad – it’s just that he is in a bad situation. you know that so please put the sword away. KC has no fault he didn’t do anything wrong. her words make KC let the guy go and KC stands up. PJ says it’s an order as the master – move aside. don’t you hear me – move back. she goes over and takes KC’s hand and holds on tight. KC looks over at her. she intertwines their fingers while looking at her dad and says no I wont stay back – ever. KC says her name in his head. he keeps looking at her and his eyes go back to normal as the rest of him does too. everyone is shocked. YW looks over at KC as SJ’s voice says a fate that already started cant be stopped with a person’s strength. it’s not something to stop. YW and KC smile at each other.
PJ puts his sword down.
SS watched that
PJ goes in and puts his sword down
KC has the bracelet on and meets with SS. SS says I heard you left with someone. KC says she saw my real self and ran away. SS: was she that kind of girl. KC says someone i believed was a brother betrayed me and the one I gave all my sincerity to threw rocks at me. those people I thought were my precious family rejected me. SS says didnt you know – the ones who hurt you the most are the people closest to you. cuz you love you get hurt too. KC says she called me a monster. he cries. SS says it’s not important how others see you just how you think of yourself is more important. KC says whatever I think of myself – I am already not a person –like a mountain cant change into the sea- the truth is I cant change the half of me. SS asks what do you want to live as now. KC says I cant think of that cuz I’m not this side or that side and just half. SS says something deep about how a man only needs a friend to share his thoughts, a loved one to share his heart, and a country he is willing to protect with his life-with those things you can call it the best life. KC says the way he is now no one will share his thoughts or share his heart cuz inside his body dirty blood flows. SS says didnt i already tell you-among the people I call human i saw them do terrible things. what decides that you are human isnt the blood that runs thru your body – just what kind of person you live as. I will ask again – what will you live as now. what do you want to live as
YW is pacing as KC goes out. YW asks what happened. what did he say. why? did you hear admonishments. did you get into a lot of trouble? he asks why are you so good to me. YW: just cuz for your sake I want to do anything – that is my heart now. KC remembers his answer to SS– I want to become human – not this half but whole. I want to become a person. he sobbed saying that so SS takes his hand and cries with him. KC looks at him and cries some more.
M is alive in the woods and comes to. he looks at his wounds and it’s healed. KC took that knife and cut his hand and spilled his blood on M. M asks what are you doing now. KC: I don’t know too why I am doing this for someone like you. in the past I did this for someone and saved a person so whether this works on your or not we have to wait and see. blue lights come and heal M. M faints. M remembers and looks at the fire KC made for him. M laughs and cries cuz he is healed.
GW is drinking when SB says I brought CJ. GW says come in. she is dressed nicely and dragged over to him. she glares at him as he asks her to pour. she says I don’t want to. he says I am giving you an order not a request. she says whatever the order I wont follow it. I don’t want to. he says even talk about your brother – do you not want it. I have a deal for you tonight -whether you follow that or not determines your brother’s fate tm morning. pour. so she does but he puts the cup down and pulls her close. he says be mine tonight – if you become mine I will be yours. she says let go please let go. he pulls her into his arms and asks what she is trying to protect acting like this – her body or dignity. she says you killed my parents – I rather die than go thru this. he says you think your parents died for your sake – no- your father died saving KC- your mother threw you away and chose suicide-who will protect you- only have yourself to protect you. for the sake of living- throw away what you can and save what you can. the greed to live – it’s not embarrassing/shameful. it’s only natural. she says to let go of her. he says be mine and I will be yours. he knocks down the candle as he attacks her
TS wakes up in jail looking startled and in pain
a fragile flower drops from a tree and floats down onto the water
next morning YW goes to see her dad. she smiles and and asks did you sleep well father. you came out early. did you eat breakfast. he ignores her. he says why – KC has a fate you cant handle – he cant be human. she says if they find in the gu book he could become human. when he becomes a person his fate will change too and the monk’s predictions- cuz of a future that hasnt happened yet – the reality in front of me now I don’t want to live avoiding it. I am going to face it with more confidence. to live like that- you taught me that up to now father. at a loss for words, he sighs deeply
KC sits in the room and looks at his bracelet. he remembers how YW took his hand and said I wont stay back – no matter what. how he asked why she is so good to him and how she said I want to do everything for your sake cuz that’s my heart now
CJ dresses and looks dead inside. SB says I brought TS. she looks over at GW. he says no need to be embarrassed cuz you saved your brother’s life. TS comes in as she tries to leave. he asks why are you here. GW says cant you see – your sister did something to save you. TS asks CJ you didn’t. he cries and she does too. she runs out as he calls out her name. TS looks at GW and says I will kill you. he grabs a sword to kill GW but SB knocks him down. SB says what should I do lord. TS says I will kill you. GW says you have a lot of anger for someone who doesnt have strength. this is my last chance for you. find out what SS is using the 5000 nyang for – if you disappoint me this time too – what your sister will pay will be way worse. he walks out and leaves TS to stare at where his sister spent the night. TS sobs on the floor
CJ walks thru the door and other gisaengs are there. WS tells her to stop. how dare you go outside without permission. CJ glares at her. CJ: it was said my lot in life could blossom anew like a spring flower. if that happens -what will happen to the main gisaeng (meaning CJ could rise in position and be ahead of WS)
SR hears CJ came back. maid says she came in on her own two feet. CJ enters. SR asks what happened – where were you. CJ you said I could have a dream – can I believe what you said that this really isnt the end. SR asks what happened. CJ says I will become the nagee (the drummer) – to become one and I want to live my life again.
TS goes back to the school. students watch him walk by and so does KC.
PJ catches TS when he falls. PJ asks what happened. TS cries as KC comes over to the door and remembers how TS said I came to cut your throat KC. how MS told KC with his dying breath – don’t forget you were like my son protect TS and CJ. KC was about to go but that memory keeps him from leaving and he makes a fist
TS says I wanted to resemble father and be like him so if I try I thought I thought one day I would become someone like father but in a world without father here I’ve been weak and pathetic. this is all I could become so I hate myself so much I could die. PJ: are you the one who made KC turn into the creature. KC asks how much longer will a guy go around crying. huh? he goes over and says look at me. TS say I don’t want to. go away. KC grabs him and says: look at me directly – what are you so scared of that you cant look at me properly –why? cuz I might turn into a monster again and hurt you? or is it cuz of that spell everytime you look at me? what are you so afraid of? please look at me TS – you have to look at me directly so I can show myself properly to you – what happened to me – why I became that monster – how afraid I am now – how terribly lonely I am – I want to tell someone that – and the person I can tell that is just you so please look at me TS. look at me directly. TS cries and then he does. he punches KC over and over. YW calls out KC as TS keeps beating KC. her dad puts up his hand for her to stay there. TS finally stops and KC says friends face each other like this TS. TS holds his last punch and gets on his knees sobbing. KC kneels and holds his shoulder and sort of hugs him so TS can cry on his shoulder.
gong says KC’s heart broke the hypnosis on TS. sincerity is power -it’s stronger than anything else. what are you going to do now. PJ says I have to prepare for GW so no more will cry cuz of him. gong says you are saying something I like hearing. he brings up Sabungja ( a group of men I think)
GW gets a report from SB about the men gathering to support SS. how GW heard about them in the past – there are four of them. they couldn’t be found but SB says they are helping SS. GW says sabungja and KC. choi says guests came and hands over a napkin
YW puts down a bag next to KC. he asks what it is. she says her father gave an order for KC’s management to start from today. KC asks you are going to manage me. Gon comes over and says me too. KC asks what do you want me to do with these beans. she says from now on count how many total are in the bag. KC: what? YW: you said you want to become a person so do that with a happy heart cuz it’s the first task – got that? gon grins
GW goes out to greet a japanese entourage. he greets some guy and says now you came – I waited. the guy shows the woman inside. her face is not visible
KC is counting and at 1230 something but YW asks about his real mom -how she passed away. do you know anything at all. he lost count so she says sorry. he starts over
GW asks who is the person who came with you. he is told she is the wife of someone japanese who passed away. only her lips are visible under her hat.
there is a gust of wind and KC says what is that. he senses something in the air. YW: what?
in the woods, WR’s gravesite starts to wither and scary red eyes pop open.
KC spills all the beans and stares off in the distance.
This scene reminds me that a lot of things will come between them from here on – people will try to keep them apart so they shouldn’t do that to each other at least. What separates them right now will only make them miss each other even more later on. Just like this – I hope he never stops wanting to reach out to her cuz just as this door can be easily broken through, he will discover that underneath her façade of strength, her fragile heart full of love is only an arm’s length away.
Starts from KC enjoying his chicken. old man – teacher gong asks KC why he wants to be human so KC says to go back to my family. gong asks which family? KC says TS and CJ and everyone that remains at the Inn-like in the past – to smile and live is my dream. gong asks What if they don’t want you anymore? then what will you do – like you changed now – what if they changed and no longer think of you as family – then what will you do? do you still want to be a human
GW tells SR he changed his mind – bring her to my room tonight – he wants to take CJ’s first night so CJ hears that and drops her tray. GW gets up and tells CJ I will come back after sunset.
TS kneels and begs KC to save CJ so KC tells him to get up but TS yells please. go wherever before I harm you for real. he gives permission as her brother for KC to take her far away and run away and live happily together
CJ asks please tell me it’s not true – that I heard wrong. She threatens her own life with a broken piece of bowl and says I will die instead. She asks it’s not enough I am his plaything i have to become his (not sure of this word -maybe concubine) if he takes my first night – how can I live in my own right mind after that – I rather die. SR hits her and says come to your senses. no one in the world will blink an eye if a gisaeng dies. dont be mistaken – there are others in this world who die more terrible deaths than you – people better than you. i will say it again – With your death nothing will change. So dont die a death without meaning – till the end you have to stay alive. Got that? She tells CJ to clean up the mess and leaves but CJ just sobs.
YW is overseeing the students training but she doesn’t hear someone calling her. She calls an end to practice and leaves. Gon notices something is bothering her
She paces back and forth in front of him then just goes and sits next to KC. She asks so are you going? As TS requested – are you thinking of running away somewhere far with CJ. He says even if I say let’s go CJ wont like it plus she doesn’t know I am like this yet. Also I don’t know where to start explaining – even if i do explain how CJ will take it – I have no confidence . YW says what is there to not have confidence about – she might say “it’s ok- how you look on the outside doesnt matter at all – even if your eye color changes or your face – inside you are still KC – it doesnt matter with me – it’s ok.” he asks if that could happen. she says If she likes you and her heart is sincere a girl could. He laughs and says how could you know a woman’s heart so she says “yo” (joseon style) I am a woman too. He backpedals to get his foot out of his mouth and says what i am saying is you and CJ grew up differently – she grew up like a pampered flower in a greenhouse so her shock level is weak. YW feels insulted and says it doesnt matter if one grew up like a flower in a greenhouse or weed in a field – a girl’s heart in love is all the same. you dont even know well. he asks love? do you know all about love? YW: of course I do. KC: how? have you had feelings of love? YW: how does this guy see me – of course I..but she stops and admits “I didnt yet.” he snickers so she says do you have to have those feelings of love to know. you can just see it and know and guess so he says do you even know that. you never stayed up all night unable to sleep over your fluttering heart. just seeing her smile lessens the stress in your heart. when that person sighs my heart collapses (that hasnt happened to you). without those experiences dont play around like you know love – got it? YW: good for you – must be nice cuz you did all that yourself. He says don’t worry I wont leave without saying a last goodbye. If I decide to leave with CJ – before anyone else I will let you know first. when will our dam goon grow up to be an adult and date. He muses her hair so she says move that hand and he says I wont so she hits him. PJ watches them
PJ asks Gong about KC. what do you think. Since you made that bet with him it must mean you must sense something about him. Gong asks why do you keep that kid at bay – what is your relationship with that kid. PJ says 20 yrs ago I killed his father. Gong asks are you scared he will get revenge if he finds out that truth or is there some other concern I don’t know.
Gon goes to see PJ and says did you call. PJ says i will be gone for a while – until I come back tm take care of the school well. Gon watches KC playing around with YW
CJ looks at the medicine KC gave her. Her maid comes to visit. CJ asks if her mom is healthy so the maid says you didn’t hear the news yet, she passed away. CJ cries so the maid says TS is safe though. CJ cries over her mother when WS comes over. She asks whose errand she is running so the maid says the new owner of the inn. gisaeng opens it up and sees all the beautiful ornaments. maid complains why touch other people’s stuff. Gisaeangs get angry and jealous cuz GW was never this generous even to WS. WS mentions how CJ needs to be get that much since she is going to sleep with the man who killed her father. The maid is outraged to hear that and asks what that talk was.
Maid goes back to the Inn and tells choi and TS’s servant about GW taking CJ’s first night. she asks where is KC? servant says I will tell KC. Choi tells him to be careful not to be followed
GW and SB watch and SB asks what should I do with them. GW says leave them alone cuz they dont know what they are doing -you go quietly and gather some men at the gisaeng house cuz KC will come tonight on his own two feet
Servant tells KC about CJ’s first night with GW tonight and to hurry cuz it will take place after sunset. YW stops KC cuz she has a bad feeling GW is using CJ to lure and trap KC over there. servant asks what she is saying then are you saying i am in on it? i only think of KC. she says how GW could have been using you. KC says even if it’s a trap i have to go. CJ will be waiting so I have to go. YW says then let’s go together. if it’s really a trap – it’s better there is two than you alone. but gon and KC both say no. KC says thanks for your concern but i cant impose on you over this. Gon says PJ is not here so you have to keep your place here. KC agrees and tells her to stay. gon says listen to KC. YW asks when they got so close – Gon can take care of the school and in case it’s a trap KC wont be able to handle GW alone and bring CJ out safely. KC says I will handle it on my own but she says i am your superior in rank – i will be of help and wont be a burden so dont say anything and let’s go together. Gon tries to reason with her but she says I am going with KC so it’s the end of that. Servant says shouldn’t we tell TS but KC says stay quiet – it’s better if TS doesn’t know.
TS overheard that and remembers how GW said for TS to bring the 5000 nyang if you dont your sister will pay. Gong gives TS advice before TS leaves -not to make the wrong decisions even though he cant see clearly
SR paces and tells her servants not to take in any customers tonight and tells them to turn out the lights and put out a mat by the entrance
GW shows up at the gisaeng house and asks SB why is it so quiet and dark. He sees SR sitting there on the ground. He asks what is going on and she says sorry but tonight we wont take any customers. He asks i told you i would have that first night so are you going to go against my orders. She says she didn’t go against his words 20 yrs ago and lost the lives of two young girls. do you remember? she goes on and says even if she lives as a gisaeng they have rights too and she protects that and teaches it. He asks what she is going to do now. She asks take back your order or else if you dont I wont turn the lights back on. He asks what if I don’t then what will you do so she says then cut my throat. If i cant protect one underling properly how can i live in charge of the gisaeng house. it would be better to cut my throat and do what you want. before then i will never move out of the way. they argue back and forth about what would happen to him if he kills her cuz of her position so he retorts what treason would i be committing and finally just says I will do what you want and kill you
Before he can kill her – from the rooftop KC orders him to not go overboard. He jumps down and thanks SR for her heart in trying to protect CJ. i will never forget it. From here on I will do it so stand back. He stands and faces GW saying aigoo it’s you again- we meet too often. GW says you must want to die quickly. KC lectures him saying You shouldn’t keep going after stuff that doesn’t belong to you. you should be careful. GW asks is she isnt mine then is that kid CJ yours. KC says how can people belong to someone. you cant have their heart. Suddenly GW calls his men over.
KC remembers how YW warned him not to fight them. your goal to go there is save CJ safely not fight them so dont forget that. go that? KC says if I dont fight then what do i do with them. YS: I have a plan. You have to run away to dungali no matter what.
GW orders his men to attack so KC evades and runs away.
GW looks over at SR.
CJ sneaks out and YW tells her don’t be alarmed – I am KC’s friend
KC keeps running away from the men and they cant keep track of him cuz he seems to be everywhere
SR asks where CJ is and maid says in her room but when they get there CJ is gone. SR orders for CJ to be brought back and make sure no one knows. SR wonders why CJ did this
YW is running with CJ but she falls down. YW says we only have to go a little further and you can meet KC so have strength. They continue running
The bad men chase guys who are all dressed exactly like KC. They report to SB that it wasn’t KC. SB thinks the students at the school were used and orders them to capture all the culprits. KC watches from the rooftop. TS comes over
Gon stands guard. Gong asks who are you waiting for. Gon says YW. Gong asks does it bother you about YW and KC – if it bothers you why not get in the way. Gon says I am just her shadow. i can love but the choice is not up to me. Gong wonders where PJ went without a word
PJ went to meet SJ in the woods. SJ says how he came out cuz he knew he would have a guest and it’s you.
YW takes CJ to a barn and says if you wait they will come here. CJ asks what is your name. YW says don’t you remember – I am dam yw from the school -we met at the Inn in the past.
All the guys dressed as KC come in. YW asks if everyone is safe and no one was hurt. They say we just ran away like you told us. she says you did well – where is KC. KC shows up and says I am here. student asks why he was so late. YW asks you didn’t get followed and didnt get into any fights right? He says no and asks what about CJ. He sees her and asks are you ok? She just cries and shakes her head no – I’m not ok at all. She hugs him. Other guys clear their throats and leave. KC says since you came to me now it’s ok. She says his name and just cries. YW turns away but looks back at KC’s back
Next morning Gon is still waiting when YW shows up. He smiles to see her and she smiles back. She brought back the other students and KC and CJ. Gon bows to her and nods to the students.
TS goes and sees his sister. They hug and cry. He says you suffered so much all that time. Are you hurt or sick anywhere. She says our mother. He says I know. She says what do we do now. he says don’t worry. Now I will protect you. He hugs her again and cries.
KC is outside and watches that. He turns to leave but YW is there facing him.
SJ asks what do you want to know. PJ says i have to know everything about KC. Can he become human? Can he be around people and not be dangerous. SJ says you are worried about your daughter. A fate that has already started with a human’s strength it cant be stopped. PJ remembers killing WR and pregnant SH and his daugher asking for help for KC cuz he is in danger so PJ says all of this is my fault
PJ comes back and sees TS and CJ. he yells at YW asking why CJ is here.then he yells at Gon for not taking care of the place while he was gone so YW takes the blame and says I decided it father – after hearing the news GW would have a first night with CJ – I couldn’t just stand by. He says so did you help KC again. SR already promised him to protect/care for CJ so why do this. TS says all this is cuz I lack. I asked KC to rescue CJ – it happened cuz of me so take it out on me. PJ says what to do now cuz GW’s eyes are on fire and without any plans we poured oil. KC shows up and says I will leave – I will take CJ and leave this place. That will be good so that everyone will be safe. If TS allows it I will take CJ and leave
TS remembers his conversation with SB. TS says how the students will be involved so if you need to catch someone – catch me but SB says you are mistaken- I don’t want to catch you –I want to catch KC so if the students want to protect your sister- give me what i want first. You have to do that when you make a deal
KC asks what should we do – can I really take CJ and leave? TS : please KC I am asking as a favor (to do that). YW looks at KC.
CJ looks at the medicine bottle that has the same letters as the school – how young YW gave it to her to give someone but CJ threw it away in the lake *wow young CJ was mean
She sees KC following and asking to talk to YW. YW says I don’t want to talk to you right now. KC: dam goon. YW: you said you would tell me first so how could you suddenly say you are leaving – suddenly in front of everyone on top of that. He says how her father was already in great danger just hiding TS as it is so how could i ask him to do that for CJ too. YW: so if you leave where are you going – is there a place to go? he says wherever it is – wouldnt there be a place the two of us can hide. She says you said you wanted to be human so you came all this way and now you are going to give that up. wanting to be human – is this all your capable of? he takes her arm and says again – dam goon so she says let go and pulls away and says she doesn’t want to talk to him . she turns but he pulls her back calling out YW. She cries and takes his hands away from her and walks into the other room.
She wipes her tears as he says thru the wall – sorry Dam YW for not being able to tell you first I will be leaving – also sorry for deciding and giving up and not going all the way. Also thank you for taking my side till the end even though I’m like this. That I was able to endure his death – my lord who is in heaven – when it was hard to accept myself – being able to overcome my situation – it was all thanks to you. I will never forget. I wont be able to forget. She stifles her cries in her hands. he reaches out to touch the partition separating them but doesn’t.
He sits outside on the stoop as she cries inside the room. CJ watches from afar
GW yells at SB for not catching KC. That gangster M shows up. GW asks I heard you know about KC the most around here. M says I know. GW says this time just don’t find him and get rid of him and you will be generously rewarded. M says don’t worry I will get him
KC thanks them (PJ, gong, and Gon) and apologizes for all the trouble he caused and to stay healthy. he says to relay the message to SS that he is sorry for not being able to say goodbye before he leaves. I wont forget his kindness. PJ: ok. Gon says YW is practicing with her sword and said don’t interrupt. KC looks sad. CJ looks at him. PJ says you should hurry if you want to reach your destination before tonight. KC says ok – goodbye. he says let’s go to CJ and starts to leave
He turns around and says to himself – but I wanted to say my last farewell. Be well dam YW.
gong says he really left – hope you wont regret your decision Dam. PJ: I will go in first
he walks away and thinks : even like this if i can stop it – I want to stop those kids’ fate
SS is angry when he gets the letter and wonders how this decision could have been made. he yells for his horse to go to the school
as they walk thru the forest SJ almost falls so he takes her hand
SB is in the woods with his men and M and his men. SB tells him to go and catch them. M says I will and leaves. SB says you did well. TS says as promised I gave you KC so free my sister. SB says you go and cut his throat yourself and I will free your sister right there. Don’t forget to take off his bracelet first.
TS remembers how SB said your sister will be sold off to the gisaeng house and even if it’s not the lord (GW) – she will be stepped on and dirtied by other men. if KC runs away with her will you be able to see her again- she will have to live in hiding all her life and when she is caught she will be executed. so you choose – do you want your sister to live like that or will you hand over KC.
As he walks away SB gives his men orders to guard the road out and kill them all on their way down-TS, CJ -including M and his men too
*i am hoping when M is betrayed like this he will start taking KC’s side from here on.
Gon asks where she is going. YW cries and says: I must have been crazy – I shouldnt have sent him away like this. I should have said goodbye before I sent him off. If I follow now will I be able to catch up with them by tonight. Gon says what are you going to do if you follow them – he already has another girl by his side. YW says I dont have any thoughts about what to do – I just need to say goodbye – to tell him to go well and live well. I just need to say those words.
KC and CJ take a water break. She thanks him. She says do you know you didn’t say one word since we left the school. He says did I – it’s cuz I have a lot to think about. She asks am I baggage to you. He says what is that talk – you are someone I have to protect. She leans on him and says I don’t know – you seem different somehow- like you’ve become a different person while we didnt see each other – i feel far away from you.
He looks at his bracelet and remembers what YW said “what is there to not have confidence – she might say “it’s ok- how you look on the outside doesnt matter at all – even if your eye color changes or your face – inside you are still KC –
KC says to tell the truth CJ- I have something to tell you. CJ:what? KC: Before that I want to say this -for your sake – I will do anything to protect you even lay down my life. you know that right? She asks what is it that you have to say. He says I know who my real parents are. She says the ones who had you? He says my father – to tell the truth. my father is….M interrupts them and says look at this picture -who is this – isn’t it choi KC. He is surrounded by M’s men. KC asks what are you doing here. M says I came cuz I have an order to capture you from GW. I suffered to find you. He orders his men to capture KC. They throw chains on him. She calls out his name. TS shows up and says I came to kill you KC.
KC remembers his convo with Gong. Gong asks -what if they dont want you anymore then what are you going to do – Like you changed – what if they changed and they don’t think of you anymore as their family – then what are you going to do. How KC said that would never happen – TS and CJ would never betray me. gong says humans are way more weak/fragile than you think. cuz humans are fragile they become cruel.
KC asks TS- why. TS says CJ is my only precious family – to protect her it cant be helped. KC:what? TS: Forgive me KC. CJ yells brother as TS goes over and takes the bracelet off. KC says no TS – don’t do that. Please ! you cant!
KC changed to gumiho
CJ is scared of KC and says go away don’t come close
GW says for the sake of living – throw everything away that you can- what is mine will be yours
PJ is asked what he was thinking to support that guy
KC asks – Why are you so good to me.
YW: cuz for your sake I want to do everything I can- cuz right now that is my heart
she goes over and firmly takes his hand in his gumiho state
KC demands: I came to meet YW – let me meet her.
I decided to do quick live recaps of Gu Family Book here, but it wont be every word cuz I plan to skip over anything I don’t know. Just something to tide everyone over till subs come out so it will resemble those other short recaps with no screencaps and just brief comments if time and energy permit.
Part of the reason why I decided to do these was cuz all my friends are watching that other office drama on KBS. I don’t get the appeal of that drama at all – that kissing scene on the bench I caught a glimpse of on cable just had me thinking “she is one odd cookie.” The guy’s ugly perm makes Sung Joon’s hair look great in comparison. Speaking of which – I think they toned down Gon’s hair a bit cuz it wasn’t such an eye sore on E11. Another reason why I picked this up was cuz I love this drama and this cast like crazy. That is why I am so sick and tired of people criticizing Susy’s acting on the Soompi thread. I had high hopes for her doing well on this sageuk and she is not letting me down yet. I have no idea what their standards are, but try watching some Dream High 2 idol actors and then we can talk about who is terrible. I’ve liked Suzy’s work since the first Dream High, then her movie Intro to Arch, then Big, and now this. When her name comes up as a possble lead, I rejoice. She has great chemistry with LSG and Sung Joon so I really hope fans of this show will cut her some slack. She is still young and improving with every role IMO.
*Last night I had tech problems and had to work from an ancient Mac Powerbook instead of my Toshiba so I couldn’t make this new post then. I had to move these onto a new one since I will be recapping the rest of the 14 episodes so this page will get long if I keep up these lengthy recaps. The meaning of “brief” seems lost on me cuz I forget and translate too much.
