I really wish the writer stop playing games with us already, and reveal who is the husband, or give a direct clear clue. With this episode, it feels like Chilbong no longer stands a chance with Na Jeong, and I do not want to keep my hopes up any more, because with each episode, my heartbreak for Chilbong just gets deeper 😦
Maybe 20+ episodes was too much of a stretch, because I really feel like they’re dragging the loveline, and making us go round and round in circles.
Trash’s cousin made us believe that she might have those supernatural powers, but today we found out that Na Jeong’s description was something she heard from Trash’s brother. However, when she said that there is no more bus, it really so happened that the bus broke down. So we got nowhere. Tsk. Then why would you introduce her as a character in the first place? Tsk.
This episode starts off with where we left off in Na Jeong’s house in 2013. Chilbong stands and look at the baseball…and we’re back to the past.
Na Jeong is insisting that Trash comes in, but he refuses and she keeps on pulling his hand. Dad opens the door and both of them gets a shocked. Dad eyes them suspiciously and ask, are you….fighting again? Hah. Dad started ranting at both of them to stop fighting already. Na Jeong keeps quiet and smile by herself. Dad asks if she’s dating, and no one answers. Dad continues that which idiot would actually want to date a girl like her and goes back inside the house. Trash fools around, after hearing what Dad says about the guy who will date Na Jeong, and Dad turns around at that moment, which was so hilarious. Dad tells Trash to get rid of the trash. Na Jeong smiles and tell Trash to get rid of his sibling and come in.
All of them gather round to watch TV, and Na Jeong sits closer to Trash. She try to link arms and rest her head on his shoulders, and Trash pushes her away. Mom comments that Na Jeong should date too, and that Chilbong is good. Dad mentions that if he was already in Seoul, he would have done everything to make that happen. Trash listens, and Binggrae looks at Trash. Dad went on and says that he doesn’t mind even if it’s an alien as long as he can take Na Jeong’s temper. Hah. Trash stands up to look at Joon (Na Jeong’s younger sibling). He quickly gestures at Na Jeong to follow him.
Mom cooked for Trash Ox Bones after Dad mentions that he’s been studying hard. Dad comes by and started ranting at Trash that he has his own mother and to find his own girlfriend, and not to bother his woman. Hah. Dad and Mom goes to the kitchen, and Trash looks on, something weighing on his mind.
Trash is going home, and Na Jeong wants to see him off. He scolds her and tells her to stay in her room.Na Jeong sees him off anyway, by the backdoor (or where ever she came out from), and they started waving to each other like adorable dorks, before Mom opens the door to give him the rest of the soup. LOL. Mom goes back in, and Na Jeong and Trash say goodbye one last time. Trash face changes when Na Jeong is no longer within sight.
Sam Cheon Po and Yoojin are arguing. Sam Cheon Po is irritated that Yoojin is constantly, for the past few days, staying at Seo Taiji’s house. Yoojin rants about how the other fangirls have taken everything from his house, including the toilet seat cover. Heol. Sam Cheon Po leaves the room and Yoojin alone.
Na Jeong is all dressed up. Trash is at the hospital, and his senior told him and the others that they can go home and there will be no on-call duties till March and that they should spent time with family and partners as once internship starts, they are going to break up anyway. HAH. Trash friends asked him to join for a drink, but he refuses as he hardly see Na Jeong. Trash hears the message Na Jeong left him. Na Jeong says that she is on the way to his house. Trash panics, and started running like his life depended on it…only to make us think, what is he hiding?
Trash drives Na Jeong home, and when Na Jeong is still sleeping, he turns on the engine back so that the aircon will still run. Na Jeong wakes up soon after, and started nagging at Trash to start living like a normal person. She is about to leave but asks Trash to kiss her. Trash tells her to go home as they are in front of the door. He smiles and waves goodbye.
Chilbong is in his room alone, and ‘wife’ comes and tells him that he can go home as the coach says to spend the last night at their own home before flying off to Japan. Chilbong is happy, and ran across the field smiling so widely.
Chilbong stands at the telephone booth and hesitates to call or leave a message. He leaves a message for someone. Na Jeong is about to go to bed, with her pager beside her. She turned on the radio and it didn’t beep. We see Trash out of the shower, and his pager beeps.So does Na Jeong’s beep and both of them steps outside to go somewhere and we see Chilbong waiting for someone.
Na Jeong is actually meeting Sam Cheon Po, because Yoojin is dead drunk. Sam Cheon Po is pissed off and leaves Yoojin to Na Jeong.
Chilbong holds the baseball on his hand, and tells Trash about the meaning behind the ball. It was the ball from the first game he lost after underestimating his opponent, and it was also the same ball he used against that same opponent the following year and won. He hands it to Trash and tells him that he will come back for it one day.
Seo Taiji and the Boys made an official announcement that they are going to retire and Yoojin threatens to kill herself.
Na Jeong is on the phone with Trash, and she asks if it’s okay if Yoojin doesn’t eat or drink anything for the past two days. Trash says it’s not good. Na Jeong went on to complain about Sam Cheon Po who doesn’t understand Yoojin’s heart for Seo Taiji, and Trash tells Na Jeong that different people are different. Na Jeong asks if Trash would be like him, and Trash denies saying that he is understanding and generous like the pacific ocean. Na Jeong asked if she could go to Gongsan as Sangmin Oppa is there, and Trash quickly tells her no and started scolding her. HAH.
Sam Cheon Po tells Yoojin to eat, and she refuses. Mom cooked 1 whole chicken per person, and Dad carries Yoojin down to the dining table and they asked her to eat. Binggrae gives her his drumstick, and when Yoojin walks away after drinking a spoon of the soup, he takes back his chicken. LOL.
Na Jeong asks Trash to come in and when Trash refuses, she made a puppy face. Trash tells her not to flirt. Lol. Na Jeong says that she’s not flirting because who flirt with their boyfriend. She turns and kiss him on the cheek. He stares at her, and she rants that she’s the only one who likes him and likes him too much. Trash looks at her for a while, and he kissed her.
He accompanies her in, and tells her that he will be coming for dinner tomorrow and she needs to wear nicely. He tells her that he is going to officially inform Mom and Dad that they are dating, so that they do not need to be mindful. Na Jeong is happy, but Trash is nervous.
Sam Cheon Po wasn’t around and they started to wonder where he went. Yoojin saw someone from the rooftop and comes down. Turns out that Sam Cheon Po went to Seo Taiji’s house and brought back his toilet bowl. HAHAHA! He tells Yoojin that he will bring it up. Everyone stares at him in amazement, and Yoojin is touched. Yoojin and Sam Cheon Po had a talk on why she likes Seo Taiji so much. Aww. And they ate.
Na Jeong is nervous outside, while Trash officially tells Mom and Dad that he likes Na Jeong a lot, not just as a sister. Mom is surprised, but Dad doesn’t say a thing and stands up to leave the room.
Chilbong calls the boarding home, and everyone runs down to speak with him. They passed the phone to each other, and when Na Jeong stepped out the restroom, Yoojin offered to pass the phone, but Chilbong says that he has to go for training and hangs up. Dad comes out and says that they should have called him. He mentions that they must be working hard since it’s already late but still training. Everyone looked at the time, and it’s 11pm. Binggrae looks over at Na Jeong, and both of them know why Chilbong hang up. True enough, Chilbong is in his hotel room and he saw something out the window. It’s snowing. He remembers the time he spent with Na Jeong (*cries along* *heartbreak*).
And we go back to Na Jeong’s house in 2013. Chilbong is holding the baseball. He turns and call out, “Hyungnim” and throws the ball to Trash. And they both smile, for reasons, we don’t understand. Hah. Or know yet.
Back to the past.
Trash’s cousin is being discharged, and we hear her talking to Trash’s brother about Na Jeong’s description and she mentioning to the brother that not everything she said was true, but Seo Taiji was true. Trash comes, and she asks him for taxi fare as the bus won’t come. He says that there is still 5 more minutes, and she insist. Trash gives her the money. As he left, Cousin shouted that she hopes he would have a long lasting relationship which made Trash annoyed. Hah. We see her boarding a cab, and a line of people waiting for the bus. A while later, the people in the line were informed that there will be no more bus as the bus broke down.
THOUGHTS & DISCUSSION
Why, drama, why?
I don’t know any more – but I think that there is no longer a chance for Chilbong to be Na Jeong’s husband. I think drama is just delaying and making us confused so that we stay interested in the drama. They keep making us go around in circles, and it might be okay the first few episodes, but doing it every single episode just makes me more and more irritated.
When Chilbong gave Trash the ball and explained the story, were we supposed to think that Chilbong lost the first fight with Trash, but he might win the next round? Then explain the medical books and ball at Na Jeong’s house. It’s either Trash lives there, and Chilbong never did returned for the ball, or…I don’t know what other reasons there are, unless you’re telling me Trash, Na Jeong and Chilbong all live in the same house.
If Trash was the husband from the start, they should have revealed this adorable Trash who loves Na Jeong earlier. Why do we only see this adorable side of Trash after he confesses to her? They made it seem like Chilbong was a strong candidate for the husband, and with the recent episodes, it seems like Chilbong is totally shifted elsewhere and that is just so depressing.
I don’t mind if she ends up with Trash, but they should make it less painful for Chilbong 😦 I feel so sad looking at Chilbong, who loves Na Jeong just as much, but can’t do anything. Oh well, I wish drama will just stop Chilbong’s pain and tell us already if Trash is the husband. Rather, stop my pain as Chilbong shipper, I need to be mentally prepared. Hah.
And that smile on Trash and Chilbong faces in 2013, with the ball, explain to me drama! Hahaha.
