DRAMA CLUB: SHARK Episodes 19-20 (1/4)
Am I the only one that felt like the writer may have actually heard us in these last two episodes? Writer-nim, are you reading these discussion posts that Kdrama Therapy, Unnichan, and the Shark fans have been frequenting these couple of months? It feels like you are because all the burning questions we had were not only answered, but in a jaw-dropping, mainly satisfying way.
I have to say, Shark’s writer outdid herself on, specifically, the last episode. Yi Soo was able to protect the people he loved and punish the people that deserved to be punished. I hate to use the tired and very obvious expression, but we definitely went out with a bang. It’s a nice change from the often times slow pace of the plot and admittedly anticlimactic reveals that had a tendency to follow us during the run of the series.
Grandpa Jo’s secrets were finally, FINALLY revealed for the world to see. I can’t decide what was more chilling: the picture of young Grandpa Jo surrounded by the dead bodies I can only assume he was solely responsible for or that he still believes that all the pain he caused was for the sake of his family.
I swear, every time he told Hae Woo that he did what did for her, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. How would you feel if the person you considered the most upstanding man you’ve ever known told you that he lied, murdered, and stole for the sake of you and your country?Speaking of Hae Woo, everything we suspected about her marriage to Joon Young was confirmed and, unfortunately, I still have some questions about them. Joon Young admits that he knew that she would always love Yi Soo, but he hoped that as long as he stayed by her side that he would be able to protect her, which is all he wants to do. Soooo does that mean he’s ok with being her second choice? Does that mean that now that Yi Soo is REALLY dead this time, that they’re staying together? I recognize that, ultimately, expecting Yi Soo and Hae Woo to be able to run off into the sunset would be completely unrealistic, but there's this part of me that felt the love she had for Yi Soo was deeper than a love she'll ever have for Joon Young . Her love toward Joon Young will always be one of a deep appreciation for standing by and protecting her. Although, I was still hoping that Hae Woo would have a love that was based on more than indebtedness. Oh well. If there's one thing I'm certain of, her heart won't break with Joon Young as much as it may have if she was with Yi Soo.
