POV DISCUSSION: One Warm Word Episode 19


OMG. How long has it been since the last episode :’) I’m so glad to have it back, even though there is only one episode and this episode leaves me all fuzzy and warm inside and I’m just happy to have the drama back. Hah.

Our couples are slowly moving on and each relationship takes a whole new direction – whether it’s starting over, or moving on.

No recaps as usual – just a discussion 🙂

vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h19m20s112Let’s talk about Eun Jin and Sung Soo’s relationship first. They start off going out as a family to create good memories for Yoon Jung, who only has memories of her parent’s fighting. Sung Soo is making every effort he can to make things work.

Eun Jin is still preparing to go their separate ways – until Sung Soo tells her that he has decided not to sell their apartment. I think Eun Jin is afraid of trying again – because they did once and it failed. She’s just tired, and she wants to get away.

I’m so happy at how much Sung Soo have changed. From the guy I saw in the first episode, he has changed and matured so much. He’s more patient, and he doesn’t raise his voice. Most importantly, he pays attention to Eun Jin and Yoon Jung. And right now, when Eun Jin is at her lowest, he’s there for her and really, that’s all that matters.

Eun Jin, despite being afraid of trying again, I’m glad that she still have fond feelings for Sung Soo. I guess she’s touched that he’s there for her, and honestly, she’s self-doubting herself but Sung Soo is giving her strength and she realizes that she still loves him.

They talk about how their love now, is different from the love back then  – and I have to agree. Everything in this World changes, including people and feelings. They don’t stay the same. However, despite being a different kind of love – it is still love, and I would say that this new-found love they discover is going to last them through the lifetime.

It’s not just simply the attraction any more – but in this new-found love, they understand each other as individuals and they could connect and communicate better, which improves the relationship as a whole. vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h18m56s126vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h18m43s255vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h18m45s23vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h19m28s193vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h19m20s112And that cute moment when Yoon Jung says she’s going to monitor her Dad to give her a younger sibling. Hah.

vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h19m49s146vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h19m54s195vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h20m02s23Jae Hak and Mi Kyung are negotiating the divorce terms – and unlike what I thought previously, it is a lot smoother. I initially thought they were going to argue and show us an ugly side of a divorce, but nope, they gave us more warmth. I’m not complaining, it’s sweet.

It’s weird how this couple is honest to each other, only when they’re preparing for the divorce. I think Jae Hak has learnt how to look at others properly and see what they want and need. He has always been oblivious to Mi Kyung’s needs, which was not entirely his fault because Mi Kyung never minded it.

However, we know it’s not okay. It’s not okay for one person to give all the time, and the other to receive all the time. In this case, just because Mi Kyung lets Jae Hak do what he wants and she doesn’t complain about him not paying much attention to her – doesn’t make it okay for him to neglect her. Both are at fault.

It’s nice to see that Mi Kyung is slowly finding her own identity, letting her true feelings out and she’s charming – much more than the ‘perfect’ her, which she thought was the key to being loved. Jae Hak sees a whole different Mi Kyung in front of him – personalities he never knew existed in her because he never took a good look at her, and he’s putting in effort to treat her right and leave her with good memories.

vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h20m09s91vlcsnap-2014-02-23-22h20m25s255I don’t know if they will actually divorce or work it out – but I’m fine both ways. I think both ways will work just fine. Personally… I would probably prefer them to go their separate ways. I just want to see Mi Kyung being on her own two feet, running about and being independent.

Perhaps, after being apart, Jae Hak can woo her again and they will date and then marry? AHAHAHAHA. That’s my wish.

Jae Hak was talking about how he never thought of Mi Kyung’s life as her own – and that he just included her in his life. I think it’s common that most of us expect others to do what we expect them to do. “You’re my wife – so taking care of my family, my kids and my needs is what I expect of you.” – but he never thought of her, as an individual. She has her own life.

I think that most of us are too dependent on each other and we expect others to do stuff for us and be there for us at times. However, we fail to think that despite being close, or family, everyone has their own lives to live. It’s good to draw a line at times, so that we do not forget that everyone has their opinions and their choices, and a life to live.

She realizes that it must have been hard on him, and she decides to let him go because holding on to him will only hurt him more. Min Soo is not ready to accept Eun Young – and I don’t know if he’ll ever be ready, or if they can actually be together.

It’s nice to know that everyone around them is okay with them being together – even though they all know how awkward it is going to be. However, as to whether they can still be together is another question. I’m not sure if it’s going to be a first love for both of them, and them moving on with their lives – or will this couple actually overcome this hurdle?

I will just place my trust in the writer who will probably do well. This drama has been nothing but awesome to me- and I love how it makes me reflect on real-life situations and we could totally relate to some of the problems. We may disagree on how some of them handle the problems – but everyone makes their own individual choices in the end.
