The story ended in a way I had not expected.
First part of my review was previously posted. This is the second part and the conclusion.
Tae Oh finally realized or perhaps acknowledged his true feelings for Song Yi. It burdened his heart knowing the complications of having such feelings towards a friend and the girlfriend of his friend, too. He kept it to himself, thinking he was not yet caught.
Se Hyun broke up with him. Yes, she already know, before he did. I think she knew that holding on to him was not really what he wanted. Of course, he would stay if she asked, but his heart would be elsewhere, not with her. Letting him go was the best decision she did. He did not even try to make it up to her. He just said sorry. I like how the scene was simple and how clean the break up was, not throwing of words, blaming Tae Oh for fluttering her heart in the first place. But then Se Hyun cried silently after she turned her back from him. It was a rough night for Tae oh knowing he hurt someone. He felt like a jerk to Se Hyun, to Song Yi and to Ji An.
At home, he snapped at Song Yi because he was guilty. He also hurt Song Yi when he chose to be by himself as he let go of his messed up feelings. Song Yi just looked at him from afar.
While Tae Oh was trying to move on, Ga In accepted a job where she would model as a pregnant woman. At first she was at a loss for words after she knew what she would do and wear, but then she gladly accept the offer. She even bragged the photos of her with a big belly, pregnant, to her friends who thought she was crazy. Well in a fond way, of course because she is Ga In. Tae Oh cheered for her. Hoon also made a decision to settle for what the company he auditioned for could give him as work because he was not accepted as a stage actor. He still lacked what it takes to be a part of the show. Still, he wanted to experience working whatever it entails or asked of him even behind the scenes. It would be an experience that will teach him and might develop what talent he has in the future.
As the story wraps up, so is everyone moving forward.
Song Yi realized Tae Oh's feelings for her when she saw Se Hyun and tried to talk to her but Ji An stopped her. She thought she would be of help but Ji An only told her what she was missing all along. That she was the reason why Tae Oh and Se Hyun broke up. All this time, she was blindsided or not aware of Tae Oh's more than friend affection towards her. But not Ji An. He realized early.
I was anticipating the scene of Tae Oh and Song Yi. I was expecting that there will be changes after they talked about their feelings. But the scene was intense. How each never wanted to say the words, even asked if he has feelings for her. Tae Oh was right. He would not tell her when she could not even finish the question.
Scared. Scared of speaking the truth. Both knew the weight of what will happen if they confirm each other's feelings. Tae Oh liking her, Song Yi liking him...or not liking him at all. Because there is Ji An who is in between them now, Ji An who will be hurt.
It was confusing at first but really, it is the reality they are facing with difficulty. Two young adults trying to make their friendship stay.
The moment Song Yi shook her head when Ji An asked her if she wanted to break up with him..I think my heart was crushed. For I was really rooting for Tae Oh all along. Hoping he would be with Song Yi.
these were my thoughts after the drama ended...
