One Warm Word has ended – and can it be any sweeter?
I loved this drama from the beginning up till the very last second, and I have nothing but praises for it. I would say it’s one of the most thoughtful drama I’ve watched in recent years. It plays with your beliefs and your ideals – and it’s really enjoyable.
I think the key to fully enjoying the drama is that you have to be open-minded, because this drama plays a lot with perspective. What you think is right, others might disagree. You have to accept this – then you’ll be able to enjoy the drama.
Honestly, when I started this drama, I never expected it to be this good. I thought it will be full of cat-fights and melodramatic but I’m still awed by how this drama is nothing like that and is just sweet and heart-warming.
We have sort of a time jump, and we see that Eun Jin and Sung Soo are living well together. I had actually hope that she was pregnant though. Hah. You know…since Yoon Jung wanted a younger sibling? It’s nice to see how they went through so much, and now still together, with a stronger bond and happier than before.
So after spending some time apart, Mi Kyung and Jae Hak decides to stay married and WOW, we finally see the kids back home. The kids are pretty cool with the whole separation thing – which is kind of funny in a way, but who cares? It’s nice.
Somebody, save me from this cuteness. Hahahaha. I’m actually glad that Min Soo & Eun Young have an open ending – because a break-up, or marriage would both be a little burdensome to the storyline. It’s too heartbreaking to see them break-up, yet too rushed to see them get married.
I thought the ending was good. If I would point out one part which doesn’t satisfy me, it would be Jae Hak’s scene in the car when his secretary told him that he want to give back his book. Jae Hak replied that its already in his heart. So…I’m thinking that what he meant was that he buried Eun Jin in his heart. Right?
I think Eun Jin and Jae Hak did love each other. For that moment. It’s a mutual attraction, when both of them were emotionally drained from their marriage, and they felt excited and felt the romance. Do you think it’s possible to love only one person in a lifetime? I don’t know, really.
I think love comes in different forms. Obviously, when I was younger, I thought that love is just for that one person – people call it true love. As I grow up, I think…love is just a word. It’s a strong emotion you feel towards someone, and it differs from one person to another. Of course, everyone has their own definition of what love is.
Living together, or being married definitely takes more than just love. It requires hard work and both individuals to do things together. There must be trust, mutual understanding, respect and one of the most important thing – communication.
No matter how much you love each other, or don’t really love each other, no marriage is safe without those. We see this in the drama with Mi Kyung-Jae Hak and Eun Jin-Sung Soo. Eun Jin and Sung Soo loved each other a lot and got married – yet they had affairs. Mi Kyung and Jae Hak didn’t really have a passionate love relationship, and they still face marriage issues.
A marriage doesn’t work with just feelings alone. It needs maintenance.
Another thing the drama talked about was choices. Everything is in our hands – we make our own choices. A different choice, might have a different outcome.
Let’s say Sung Soo never forgive Eun Jin, and Eun Jin gets depressed or something, and Jae Hak is concerned. If at that point of time, Jae Hak decides to help Eun Jin, things would have changed drastically. I’m glad drama didn’t go makjang on me, but it was all a matter of choice.
If Eun Jin didn’t get over her guilt, and never accepted Sung Soo back, things would have change too.
There was also a scene where Sung Soo told Eun Jin to just stay still and not try to do anything regarding Eun Young. He’s right. Things which are beyond your control, let it be. There’s nothing you can do, so stop trying to do something. She can’t change what Eun Young feel towards her, she can’t change what happened, she can’t make them be together – there’s nothing she can do. The only thing she can do is to stay still, and let Eun Young decide.
Overall, I think I took a lot of insights from this drama, and it was a really nice drama. It makes me wonder about what makes a marriage, what breaks it, and how different choices brings about different results.
Last but not least the characters were awesome and they all shine in their own way 🙂
Thanks to everyone who has been reading my POV DISCUSSION and I hope you enjoyed the drama as much as I did, and loved the ending too 🙂
