I’m quite disappointed with some comments online questioning Eun Bong-hee’s (Nam Ji-hyun) decision to break up with Noh Ji-wook (Wookie). Guys, I don’t think you get her point. She actually made a sacrifice by doing that as she didn’t want Ji-wook to suffer from their situation.
Some might say that breaking up with Ji-wook won’t change anything, and facing the problem together could be the wiser thing to do, but I think Bong-hee’s decision to end her relationship with Ji-wook felt more human. I mean, we tend to be impulsive when we’re in the height of our emotions, right? Put into consideration that she decided on that right after she discovered her father’s connection to the death of Ji-wook’s parents.
One more thing. Bong-hee might be hurt by the fact that Ji-wook hid everything to her because as a daughter, I understand Bong-hee’s desire to clear her father’s name, especially that she knew exactly how it feels to be wrongfully accused. Their break-up hurts, yes, but I’m positive love will prevail and they’re gonna patch things up soon. Let’s just give them some time to breathe out and think.
I’m surprised that Bong-hee took refuge at the apartment of Na Ji-hae (Kim Ye-won). Though I’m irked by that female prosecutor, I must admit that I’m grateful she took Bong-hee in despite their sour relationship. Ooops, let me correct that. Bong-hee literally barged in at Ji-hae’s apartment so the latter had no choice but to let the former stay at her place, lol. I’m also amused by Ji-hae recently, especially with the epilogues showing her misinterpreting Ji Eun-hyuk’s (Choi Tae-joon) innocent actions towards her as something romantic. Hahaha this girl.
I’ve seen Kim Ye-won in several projects already (Sunny, Jealousy Incarnate, and Tomorrow with You), and though all of her roles were annoying, her acting is undeniably good. My worry that she might be typecast to this kind of role proved to be invalid as she gave her character in this drama a new flavor.
Bong-hee’s absence due to her “vacation” following her break-up with Ji-wook was greatly felt by her colleagues at the law firm, but I think it’s CEO Byun who missed her the most. I like it when he scolded Ji-wook for not making any step to reconcile with Bong-hee.
Maybe it’s true that missing someone so badly can make you sick. See what happened to Bong-hee who was rushed to the hospital after her temperature spiked to 40 degrees Celsius. And the worry that’s written all over Ji-wook’s face when he checked on Bong-hee got me teary. Their kiss, which Bong-hee thought was a dream, felt so tender and sweet.
Later on, Bong-hee learned that their kiss at the hospital wasn’t a dream after all and her reaction was so hilarious! Lol.
A young boy who witnessed a murder incident sought Bong-hee’s legal help. Bong-hee then brought the child under Ji-wook’s care. Though Ji-wook at first treated the child with animosity, we later on saw him caring genuinely for the young boy. It’s probably because he could see himself in the child, who at a young age had to experience such kind of trauma.
It looks like the murder case is gonna be solved immediately with the help of the child’s testimony. But, it seems the otherwise for Ji-wook’s attempt to remember the details of his parents’ death. He’s now confused more than ever as two different memories are haunting him. First is him saying he doesn’t remember anything about the fire incident, and the other one is him pinning Bong-hee’s father as the perpetrator.
And for the most shocking part of these episodes! Jung Hyun-soo (Dong Ha) has now awaken from coma! Gosh, I almost throw my phone when Bong-hee turned around to see Hyun-soo standing right in front of her and intensely looking at her as if he’s examining her. Now it’s time to know whether he will really become an amnesiac!
