This episode did it for me. I’m sold. I was still hesitant after watching the first two episodes, because the drama is quite different from the norm – but I think I’m getting used to it, and I actually like what I’m seeing a lot.
Honestly, I feel like there’s too many sex/bed talk. I don’t mind it personally, but I think it does sort of affect the viewing experience to a certain extent. It’s like…. I’m not watching this drama to know about partners behaviors in bed, and who’s abnormal – or who sleeps around with who, I mean…. we’re still watching a drama, with a story right?
Besides that, I pretty much like the whole ‘chill’ vibe this drama is giving me. It feels relaxed and fun to watch, with a little bit of mystery too.
I’m not doing any recaps for this – just small discussions.
THOUGHTS & DISCUSSION
This is so precious. I actually love the whole roommate setting, and how all of them come from different walks of life – it’s fun, interesting and very refreshing. The best thing is that all these characters shine a lot on their own. They have their own back-story, and the characters are well-written, I love the witty dialogues the characters engage in.
Now, I’m going to talk about the small little mystery – the character Kang Woo. I’m not sure if all of you are aware, but I think most of viewers would already be aware of this, but in case you’re afraid that it’s a spoiler, do no continue reading.
Is he really a figment of Jang Jae Yul’s imagination? It sort of make sense when I watched the first two episodes, but it still might be too early to tell. That picture above though, in Kang Woo’s room was lots of post-it – very similar to Jae Yul.
We saw that he picked up a phone-call and scolded Kang Woo over the phone, over Kang Woo’s novel, which is actually his real life story except for the fact that he was the murderer instead of his brother. Hae Soo was listening to the call, and asked him who was it.
Now – two scenarios. It really was a phone call – which means Kang Woo is real, but there’s still something off about him.
Second, his phone didn’t ring. It was in his head, he went inside his room to pick up a ‘call’ and talked on the phone, which Hae Soo asks out of curiosity who is on the line, because the phone didn’t actually ring. This might be possible too – just that we heard a ringtone of course, but dramas can always twist the plot and show us that there really wasn’t any phonecall, and Hae Soo noticed it, but didn’t confront him.
Kang Woo doesn’t have much scenes – but his character is a big mystery and if he really is a figment of Jae Yul’s imagination and Jae Yul did kill the father…. then… wouldn’t the drama be a sad ending? I mean – he’s not getting away with murder right?? Okay, maybe accidental murder plus mental health, he might get away with it – but… still?
So…. I’m thinking that maybe… most likely, Jae Yul is not the murderer – but how the father died, why the brother hates Jae Yul, and who is Kang Woo and how is he related to Jae Yul – we’ll probably find out these answers down the road.
But till then, I do hope to see the fun continue 🙂 Oh, and I do hope to see more patient-cases, because studying the human mind and behavior is lots of fun.
