Episode 11: RECAP


Episode 11 was packed with revelations and major plot points! Namely, Yoon Ran Joo and Seo Mok Ha's press conference, Yoon Ran Joo's interaction with Kim Jun Heon, and how he claimed that she was the "trash" RJ Entertainment had to get rid of to succeed (despite the company being named after her), Yoon Ran Joo's mother passing away, the court proceedings for identity theft, the results of the hearing for the identity theft, the insurance man and Ki Ho's school friend AKA Dae Woong surviving, the Kang Sang Du (the real dad) getting stabbed and of course the KISS!


Wow, that's a lot! So we decided to cover each final episode with its own article! This is the article for episode 11!

JUSTICE is Served


What stood out for us in this episode was the justice served at the hearing for the family's identity theft. Of course, we knew that the adoptive father Kang Sang Du was a good person, he helped a family he didn't even know and essentially saved their lives! He also showed the integrity of his character by reporting himself before Jung Bong Wan could do any more damage. You can see that he really treasures and loves his family. This also, really shows that you don't have to be related to really love the people you meet in life which is a beautiful thing!


The Justice of the Hearing: Realizations and Bitterness

After having watched many K-dramas and seeing villainous characters succeed (maybe we've seen that a bit in real life too) it was so satisfying to see the prosecutor doing the cross-examination see the truth of the matter - but you kind of do wonder as well if this happens as much in real life. Anyway, for us it was a very weighted, yet pleasant surprise that he could see through Jung Bong Wan's supposed "love" for his family. It made us a little angry as well the way he referred to his family throughout the series, as if they were his property and that they needed to be "punished" to restart. What nonsense.


The Stab: Desperation and Doom

It's nice when the mother Song Ha Jeong narrates at the end - and you can see that the family overall turned out better as they were forgiving. The mother handing the umbrella to Jung Bong Wan, despite them knowing he tried to murder someone? Or maybe she didn't know at that moment but we thought it was crazy!


Also, it is so true that people choose what they want in life and it's either they can forgive or just be peaceful and move on or they stay bitter and cling to the negative only to keep falling down and eventually hitting the bottom, as did Jung Bong Wan - he didn't love his family, he just couldn't get his "property" back and didn't see the error in his ways. There was no turning back for him. So he stabs Kang Sang Du thinking that he would have some sort of disturbing justice, and ends his own life so his wife had to remain his wife forever, he was just so bitter, it consumed him. Anyway, we are glad that Kang Sang-du survived and is thriving in Dramaland! We don't know what we would have done if he passed!

THE KISS

Sunshine-filled, joyous, and happy. For us that was definitely one of the warmest, most wholesome K-Drama kisses we have seen! There's not much more to say about it. It was beautiful and I hope our readers (if they wish) can experience a love as warm and gentle as that depicted in that kiss!
