Pride & Prejudice continues to be engaging 🙂 The OTP moments were toned down a little, but we still did manage to get a fair share of them. However, the two episodes revealed quite a lot on what happened to Yul Moo’s younger brother, Han Byul. Or rather than say it revealed what happened, it’s more like we know the reason why she ran away from Dong Chi years ago, and why she’s back for ‘revenge’.
Personally I don’t find the crimes they are dealing with interesting enough, but what makes this drama work for me – is the mystery surrounding it, the characters, and the OTP moments.
I hope that the drama would also put a little bit of limelight on the supporting characters in the later episodes, because it would be such a waste.
As usual, no recaps – just a discussion, and some screencaps.
EPISODE 3 & 4
Dong Chi questions Yul Moo on why she refuses to come to work with him and what is the difference when she’s staying with him anyway. She says she doesn’t want to, and he replies that he changed his mind about giving her work to do. Yul Moo then mentioned that he should just kick her out.
Okay, that’s the fun part. Now for the more serious stuff.
Yul Moo and Hee Man clashes over a case, and I find it totally unexpected, but fun. I knew that there would obviously be some sort of friction between Hee Man and the team members, but I thought it would be Dong Chi naturally. Never thought it would be Yul Moo though. Of course, there are still future episodes, and most likely Dong Chi will also have some sort of friction with him.
So it seems that Han Byul was murdered. It’s impossible for him to wander to that place above. Basically what happened was that he wanted to follow Yul Moo to school, and he followed her to the bus-stop despite her telling him not to. She told him to walk back home, and if he knows the way, before going up the bus.
I guess he never got home on that day, and was missing for a few days before being found dead.
Her mother loses her senses when she see young kids, and Yul Moo rants at her to accept the fact now, that Han Byul is dead. Her mother angrily retorts that she knows he’s dead, before saying that it’s her fault that he’s dead and walk off.
THOUGHTS & DISCUSSION
Okay, so we know why she had left him years ago. She saw that torn report slip, and it was similar to what she had. Rather than saying Dong Chi killed Han Byul, I think it’s safe to guess that Dong Chi maybe had ignored Han Byul years ago, when he was in trouble.
But how did Han Byul get Dong Chi’s report slip, and how was it torn. From the above picture, it was already torn when Han Byul wrote the message, “Save Me.”
Dong Chi mentioned that he initially wanted to be a doctor – does this mean that he became a prosecutor because of Han Byul?
Did they not find the murderer or any sort of clues back then? Which is also the reason why Yul Moo is so upset at prosecutors quickly closing cases, when parents of the victims would want answers, yet could not find any answers or explanations.
Most likely this case would be the main case of the drama, and I wonder if the statue of limitations is not yet over. Or if Dong Chi had secretly investigated this case? Because unless he had investigated this case secretly, there would be no reason for him to have files on Han Byul. He would have still been quite young back then, since Yul Moo was still schooling.
Okay, that’s about it for Dong Chi-Han Byul-Yul Moo.
I like how things are going in the drama right now, and I hope it stays this way – with a little bit more OTP moments 🙂
