DRAMA CLUB RECAP: It's OK, That's Love 7-8 (2/2)
Welcome back, Drama Clubbers! Episode 7 promised us trips for our leading couple, and boy did it deliver with a trip to Japan as well as a well-placed stumble in the airport. Now, while our lead couple is Japan for most of episode 8, some questions were indeed answered, but it seems for every step forward--we move two steps back. Things at home are sure to give Jae Yul and Hae Soo a headache once they return. Read on to see how it all goes down on It's Okay, That's Love.
Firnlambe: Ok, not gonna lie. Hae Soo was extremely annoying this episode. Did either of you feel this way? Or was it just me lol
June: Nah, I felt the same way too! I just wanted her to relax and enjoy the moment.
Firnlambe: Right?! Enjoy the moments woman! You're in Japan for goodness sake.
Ari: I hate to say "I told you so" but, I did tell you so, sooo... (>'-')> <('-'<) ^(' - ')^ <('-'<) (>'-')> That's my victory dance, if you were wondering.
You Da One
Ari: This makes me wonder. Is Jae Yul using this opportunity as a ploy to show Hae Soo he's not like other guys? But more importantly, that he's not like Choi Ho? I don't know, maybe I'm just reading into it . . .
June: This says a lot, in my opinion! It just means she's special to him and special enough for him to actually bring her to visit his mom!
Firnlambe: I liked that he didn't give her the option to say no. Because, lets be honest here. We all know, that if she had been given the opportunity to bail she would have in a heartbeat.
Listen to mom's advice
June: I can see why he was acting the way he was. He knows that it's not going to be easy with Hae Soo. I'm just nervous about the problems that will arise later.
Ari: Jae Yul was not excited enough to hear this news. Now not that I blame him, Hae Soo is like circus with all the hoops she has him jump through. If they marry now it will be to make his mother happy not because he truly wants to be with her. He even said it himself: "What if we get tired of each other?"
Firnlambe: We can't really blame mom for having these thought about Hae Soo . . . not after she found out that Jae Yul has opened up a lot to her.
Ari: I'm not going to lie, I like So-Nyeo's attitude when it comes to guys. It's a very smart one to have especially when you're young. She was quickly becoming an irreplaceable character in my mind. That is until later on . . .
June: At first, I really thought she was funny but now she's just getting on my nerves.
Firnlambe: Sorry, but no. So Nyeo can get hit by a freaking taxi for all I care.
Hae Soo - The Goal Digger
Ari: They both made really valid points. I agree with both of them, but if I had to choose a winner it would be Jae Yul. Hae Soo was only thinking about money. She should have relaxed and enjoyed herself realizing that she had nothing to prove.
June: I agree, I loved her points but I feel like she's still holding back and I think she just needs to relax.
Firnlambe: It's her defense mechanism . . . and she knows it. I understand that--annoying as it may be, but *ugh* it's getting so ridiculously aggravating! This is the downside to having two extremely stubborn and prideful people date one another. Neither will relent enough for them to make any real progress.
Aaaand the plot thickens . . .
Firnlambe: This . . . this is bad. This means that Jae Yul's hallucinations have extended to the point where he replaces the faces of people he sees just to suit the hallucination's needs. I haven't gone back to check, but I believe the girl that Jae Yul threw pebbles at for Kang Woo was not the same woman who drops off this letter. Oh God . . . and to top everything off, the police call looking for Jae Yul. Yeah, this is a time bomb just waiting to happen.
June: It's finally happening. I knew it was eventually going to come back but seriously I don't know if I'm ready for this.
Ari: Goodness gracious help us . . . I was wondering when Jae Yul was going to become Hae Soo's patient. With this news, he'll be on her couch in no time.
Now just what is wrong with your hand?
June: Seriously, where is this coming from? First Kang Woo, now Jae Yul! I must now the connection to the now.
Ari: So this is where Kang Woo got it from. Must run in the family . . . Alright, in all seriousness this freaked me out. This must be residuals from all the brotherly beatings he's received . Or maybe it's the time Jae Bum used a fork to see whether or not he was well done. The pickings are anything but slim.
Firnlambe: Hopefully this only developed because of his writing. I would hate for it to be something he's had since he received his beatings. That would just be another thing to add to his growing pity pile and that's not acceptable.
Our poor Giraffe has been betrayed in the worst possible way.
Firnlambe: I need a Taxi STAT!!! . . . . I KNEW I didn't like this chick for a reason. Poor Soo Kwang T^T Now, I couldn't fit it into the GIF but what Sam says after this scene has me a bit confused. Does he actually know Soo Kwang? Because he calls out to him and it seems like he tries to explain that he didn't really mean what he said in order to hurt him.
June: This seriously made me so mad and I officially really don't like her. Poor Soo Kwang! I just really want him to find someone who will be good to him and I want that to happen ASAP.
Ari: This hurt my heart. But as much I like Soo Kwang, he set himself up for this. Jae Yul basically told him to stand down. So what does Soo Kwang do? He cleans her house. Way to show her!
Firnlambe: To his credit, he did say it was a way for him to . . "clean himself of his feelings for her" so to speak. Every person has a different way of trying to rid themselves of certain feelings.
Only you can hear the phone ring Jae Yul!
June: And so it begins . . . . . . .
Ari: Ahh. Mah. Gah. He's getting closer and closer to revealing his special friend. It's about to go down.
Firnlambe: Sooner or later Hae Soo is going to put all these little instances together. The more I watched Kang Woo, the more I feel he may "have" what Hae Soo was talking about. Which makes me wonder if Jae Yul knew someone who had the disease.
Jae Yul has no time for hypocrisy . . .
Firnlambe: Listen here Hae Soo! Just because Jae Yul has been understanding and very . . VERY patient with you. Does not give you the right to act like this, It's not fair to him. Relationships are a two way street sweetie. I fully support Jae Yul going back to his "I dish out as much as I get" rule and I hope that Hae Soo gets over this ridiculous mindset quickly.
June: Ah so It's begun. I knew the honeymoon stage had to be over soon enough. But Hae Soo needs to be a bit more understanding as well. Jae Yul really has been really patient with her and I feel like she isn't taking enough initiative to change. I just hope this passes by quickly.
Ari: If Hae Soo gets on my nerves anymore I might lose it. Her attitude is childish and almost unbearable. I am SOOOOO glad Jae Yul did this. She's such a hypocrite. Get over yourself already. I just . . . can't. GAAHH!!!
Things are certainly heating up for Hae Soo and Jae Yul over in Japan. Will Hae Soo be able to follow through and not have a panic attack in the middle of their moment of passion? Will everything be alright once they finally return home? Not only does Hae Soo have an old flame to worry about, Jae Yul has the police finally looking for him. What exactly did they find out when they went to investigate "Kang Woo's" house? Stick around for episode 9 to find out.
