Am still at episode five, and so far this is my fave *but not discounting the others as less good, because each episode have its weight of importance, contributing how my heart went to the fifth episode as the heart tugging one. Am expecting, that the succeeding episodes will over ride the beauty of five.
For starters, I learned to take my time watching this drama.It deserves much attention, something that is not rushed as my twitpal say it, in order to appreciate the beauty of this story. The actors/actress are serving us well *specially on JIS, sexy-rabbit-teeth, plus the suspenders,and oh goodness im floored everytime he does the chuckle! *, but the screenplay is awesome, and how the director played his part of interpreting how it should be executed with out overdoing the drama.
HOW I LOVE THIS SCENE. I swear, I felt so tensed as Oh Soo. but then again , the less BGM, the subtleness of this scene scores perfectly on how each ot their worlds are too difficult to endure. This was only their moment, where everything around them looks free. *thanks for the crisp white beddings, it added more effect*. Oh Soo may have been challenged as a man, in contrast with Youngie’s oppa perception , however this served submission that both can be together, without the hassles.
Thru their conversations and character description , Oh Soo and Youngie will have an arduous path ahead before we can presume they will end up happily together. The director had shown us awesome panning shots of them together but with graphical representations of hindrances between them. Like these:
their first meeting, a stagnant water, with fence-like branches and bars.
they could have been sitting next to each other, but coffee cup between them~
contained in one space, plus bars and again, the branches.
squares and cornered objects specifying how them being together is restricted with their past.
then suddenly at the end of episode 5, we see this.
Oh Soo’s unfortunate younger life brought him to grow “like a trash with swarming maggots” or, represented by the gray, ugly branches as shown in the painting. Yet he met Youngie, a visually impaired woman who obviously needs warm and light to her also so-called life and who ironically makes continuity to give him hope and reason to live. She represents the golden swirl as money, and solution to his dilemma , at her own expense (that is, her life at stake).
I can’t wait to marathon episode 6-7 , but like a sumptuous meal, i want to savor every minute of my viewing time. ;))
