POV DISCUSSION: High School Love On Episode 2


Okay, clearly one episode per week is not enough for me! This episode was much better, because the episode was not as choppy as the previous one. We also no longer have super awkward acting with the supporting casts, and we have Woo Hyun in a new school, with new kids!

There was also an unexpected bromance between Woo Hyun and Sung Yeol. Alright, maybe not that level yet, but it seems promising. I never thought they would have a possible bromance, because I thought Sung Yeol was pretty much cold to everyone, but it’s nice to know there might be one. Though it probably might be jeopardize in future because they’ll both fall in love with Seul Bi.

So we have new school, new kids  – and once Seul Bi joins the school, we’ll have those high school scenes, which will be lots of fun🙂

I’m not going to do a recap for this, but I will just post some screencaps along with a description. I wanted to do a recap, but I sprained my neck and it’s difficult to actually sit for long. I’ll probably do recaps from episode 3 onwards🙂


vlcsnap-2014-07-19-13h56m39s171vlcsnap-2014-07-19-13h56m51s39So from where episode 1 left off, Woo Hyun saved Seul Bi from the oncoming truck and scolds her for wanting to die. She tells him that he messed it up for her, and reminds him that he was the one who told her to get lost.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-13h57m26s131Woo Hyun tells her to follow him, but she doesn’t and tells him that he told her not to previously. He stands behind her and pushes her so that she would move first. LOL. SO CUTE YOU TWO.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-13h57m42s36vlcsnap-2014-07-19-13h57m59s205Ji Hye and Sung Yeol have a pretty difficult relationship, and I find their relationship interesting. Sung Yeol clearly doesn’t like Ji Hye, but Ji Hye doesn’t seem like a two-faced step mother as well. She does ‘admit’ to Sung Yeol that she doesn’t like him, just like he doesn’t like her – but I feel that she does really wants to get along with him. I don’t blame Sung Yeol for his behavior towards Ji Hye – because he’s probably hurt over his parent’s broken relationship, and he’s only a high school student.

I do want to see them bonding, and maybe Sung Yeol will open up to her in future.

Woo Hyun’s handphone starts to ring, and Seul Bi wants to pass him his phone…except that he’s actually showering.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h47m54s213(sorry Woo Hyun…I had to post this. Hahahaha)vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h47m58s2vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h47m56s240

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h48m05s67vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h48m04s57He gets angry that she just burst into the toilet, and she defends herself, saying that he never told her she can’t see and that it’s unfair. Woo Hyun argued that he should look at her when she shower to be fair. She insist that she didn’t see clearly anyway.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h48m13s148vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h48m08s103vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h48m10s121She looks at him and says that she clearly saw something he had. Woo Hyun ‘covers’ his body, and she says out “Chocolate Abs” and tells him to show it to her one more time.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h48m44s204That would have send me spazzing…if he didn’t do a headlock on her a few seconds later for wearing his old school uniform.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h49m04s149Woo Hyun went out to buy his new school uniform, and is happy when Seul Bi keep praising he looks good. She wants one too and the salesgirl told her to try it on.vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h49m31s159vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h49m32s173vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h49m13s238She tries it on and pesters Woo Hyun to buy it for her.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h49m50s96They chased a snatch thief along the way, who took Ji Hye’s purse.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h49m51s112vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h50m08s22Seul Bi tries to use her power, and she did succeed but she felt really tired after it. vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h50m29s227vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h50m31s255vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h50m48s166And Sung Yeol arrives in time to catch her from falling.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h51m56s79vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h52m05s166Woo Hyun piggybacks her home, and he asks why she followed the thief as most people would avoid dangerous situations. He mentions that to her, he must be a bad person since he kicked her out. She tells him to not do it again, because she has nowhere to go.

Anyway, Woo Hyun arrives at his new school – which is the same school Sung Yeol is attending. And of course like every other high school out there, there are the bullies.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h52m54s142vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h52m56s161So we have Jae Suk (top right), Byung Wook (top left) and I’m not sure about the third guy, maybe he’s Tae Ho (above)?

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h53m13s80vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h53m15s97Jae Suk is already not pleased with Woo Hyun, and he is even more pissed when the girl above (I’m not sure who is she) pays attention to Woo Hyun. So most probably, he has a crush on that girl.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h53m49s180vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h54m20s240Sung Yeol and Woo Hyun prevented Jae Suk and boys to bully another student, and they end up going to class late. Ji Hye chases them out, and Sung Yeol tells Woo Hyun that he needs help before punching Woo Hyun. Ji Hye steps out to stop Woo Hyun from punching back, and Sung Yeol asks her if he should call his mother down and when is a good time as his mother is busy. Ji Hye slaps him, and both Sung Yeol and Woo Hyun ended up running around the field.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h54m39s167Ji Hye wants Sung Yeol to blow the candles of the cake, but he refuses and she blows them alone.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h55m10s225vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h55m13s252Jae Suk and friends took Woo Hyun clothes and puts them under a running tab. Woo Hyun calls Seul Bi to grab his clothes and meet him at the school’s swimming pool. Seul Bi hilariously gets up a bicycle and wonders why it won’t move and it’s not as easy as dramas showed her. LOL.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h55m24s106Woo Hyun doesn’t swim during class with an excuse that he has a cold, and was instructed to clean up.

vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h55m32s191vlcsnap-2014-07-19-19h55m43s47Jae Suk pushes him into the water before leaving. Woo Hyun can’t swim – or rather he has a phobia of water as he drowned when he was a kid.


Okay – we all know Seul Bi would be there to save him. WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT A WEEK FOR THAT😦 I’m sad that the drama is only airing on fridays. Hahaha.

Anyway, it was a good episode – funny, and Seul Bi continues to grow on me with her innocent attitude, yet always say the right stuff at the right moment. When Woo Hyun’s grandmother said “I’m dying” as sort of a passing comment, Seul Bi told her not to use such a word. And yet when she burst into the toilet and argue with Woo Hyun over what he didn’t tell her she can’t do – it’s so funny because it’s basic common sense to us – but not to her as she doesn’t fully understand how humans work.

And I’m expecting her character growth to be huge because she’s actually learning what it’s like to be a human. She wondered in the previous episode, why humans live when they’re going to die anyway. She’s going to learn that from her experience as a human, and it will be both a good and a bad thing. A good thing is because she can finally understand what it’s like to be humans, and why we do the things we do. The bad thing is that she’s an angel, and she would probably have to go back – and she would have conflicting feelings in future.

Not just that, as a human, she would also feel the different emotions she never felt before – like sadness, fear, or pain, and love. It will be fun🙂

Sung Yeol and Ji Hye’s relationship is bad, and I really wonder why he hates her so much. He probably believes that because of her, his mom left – or something along those lines. However his mother dropped his a message that she couldn’t spend his birthday with him and deposited some money in his account. I don’t see how his real mother is any way better – but we need more time to figure out their complicated relationship.

I do expect that they would probably grow fond of each other, and Sung Yeol would probably open up to Ji Hye, and then maybe they can have a normal family relationship.

There is one issue – which is…is Ji Hye…possibly Woo Hyun’s mom? If she is, how and why did she got separated from him?

Okay – so we know that Seul Bi still have some powers left, but after using them, she would feel extremely tired and needs ample rest. This might also be a clue on how she and Woo Hyun gets separated in future? Maybe? I don’t know either. We have to watch to find out. Hah.


So it’s like almost a high-school drama now, and I’m welcoming that idea, because high school dramas are always fun. AND I’M SO HAPPY TO SEE KIM MIN SUK AGAIN! He’s playing a bully though. I liked him a lot from Shut Up Flower Boy Band, and it’s nice seeing him again. The other two bullies are pretty cute too.

I’m sure they’re not just the empty-headed bullies, and I’m looking forward for more character in them.

Next week, Seul Bi would be joining the school and the girls would bully her. So we have Jae Suk and friends on Woo Hyun, and the girls on Seul Bi.

I can’t wait for the next episode!

And yes – acting wise, it’s all good in this episode🙂 That girl above who Jae Suk might have a crush on, is a little awkward, but besides that it’s all good. Basically, I don’t have any complains about this episode.

It was enjoyable🙂

Who knows…if this drama fleshes out the characters well, including the supporting casts, it might just be one of my favorites for the year.

  1. Dear Leejin8, thanks for the recap.

    I know I am not one of your usual customers; but, shall I ask you to recap the whole series?.

    Sorry for being selfish, I loved Wim Wender’s wonderful Wings of Desire and So Far Away, so Close. I also have enjoyed City of Angels and I love to see more stories within the same premise (universe?).

    Anyways, thanks for your hard work!.

    • customers xDDDD I don’t sell anything xDDD

      I am planning to do recaps for this drama🙂 Couldn’t do it for this episode because I sprained my neck and it was too much pain and uncomfortable siting for long. But most likely, I’ll do recaps from episode 3 onwards🙂

      • Dear Leejin8, thanks for your positive answer.

        I guess the word “forumite” is the best one in this context. English is my second language, and one I have learned by myself, so please forgive my funny English.

        Thanks, and greetings from Caracas.
