Laughter! But seriously — it’s mostly tears right now…

Observe, the lens flair of happiness.

Holy hell, my heart has been torn to bits. To bits!

Spoilers through episode 11 below…

I’m seriously not sure how a happy ending is possible for those two. With Young inoperable (apparently) and Soo giving up any attempt to avoid Moo-chul’s knife, it’s like they’re running towards death together (while laughing, because they’re just so happy together! *sob*).

The drama is giving us an interesting discussion about what love is (while tearing our hearts to bits). Soo tells both Moo-chul and So-ra that love doesn’t cling — and then follows it up by pushing Jin-sung away (to protect him! *sob*). And Moo-chul tells his sister that Soo’s love is more pure because he sacrifices his ego to it (Soo’s begging and taking the beating scene! *sob*). And Secretary Wang and Soo actually join forces to help Young to face down her fear and fight back (Soo threatening to create horrible memories so he won’t grieve! *sob*).

And of course, the ultimate expression is Soo’s very non-clingy, ego-sacrificing, willing to be harsh if that’s what it takes, push to save Young. A push for which he’s given up trying to save his own life. (And which might not even work anyway! *sob*)

At this point I’m storing all my hope on Soo’s team-family drnoona photo ScreenShot2013-03-17at65619PM2_zps54eddc4c.png(surely Hee-sun’s brain and Jin-sung’s stubbornness will come up with something!), and in the tiny frowny face of “hmm” Dr. Noona had during her last look at Young’s brain-pics. Which isn’t a strong foundation to build on, but I takes what I can gets.

Because those two really are so beautifully in love and Young is finally recognizing her feelings, which… okay, she thinks he’s her brother so that’s a bit awkward, but… baby steps! Let’s just baby-step our way to a happy ending, okay?

  1. Ah, yae! Loved eps. 10 and 11. I’ve gotta say, Betsy, I am very glad you wrote such a beautiful introduction to this drama way back when — “They had me at the tree…” is what inspired me to check out the drama in the first place. I am all kinds of loving it!

    I hope I am not speaking too hastily when I say that reflecting on this and that in TWtWB has me writing again after a worrisomely long hiatus (*wheeee!*).

    Yes, indeed, am very happy to be watching this drama… [*contented sigh*]
