When secrets come out, our heroine will have to make a selection: give in to one particular of the lots of people today attempting to inform her what to do, or choose to take charge of her personal life?
EPISODES 7-eight WEECAP
This week opens with lots of fluffy, romantic giddiness and Su-kwang producing preparations to propose, so you know what that indicates – a subsequent plunge into angst, tears, and one particular excessively dramatic reveal soon after yet another.
It all begins when Chairman Sun’s people today arrive at the industry to search for Seul-bi. The shop owners make themselves helpful for when by assisting distract the guys and alert Su-kwang and Seul-bi so they can flee.
As the two make their escape, they come face-to-face with Min-joon. After once again, he lets them go, but this time Su-kwang clocks the appear that passes in between Min-joon and Seul-bi.
Back at dwelling, he confronts her for the entire truth. When she offers it, he storms out of the apartment, enraged and heartbroken to ultimately know for positive who was behind his mother’s death. He keeps saying it is not Seul-bi’s fault, but he also does not want to even appear at her suitable now – and regrets bringing her dwelling back then.
Then he goes straight to the hotel to confront Chairman Sun, also. Min-joon tries to calm him down, but virtually the entire hotel has heard his outburst by now, and it is not lengthy just before Su-kwang is standing just before a stunned Chairman Sun.
Chairman Sun keeps saying he wasn’t behind the death of Su-kwang’s mother or the murder try on Su-kwang, but neither Su-kwang nor Min-joon (nor I) think him. Just after venting his grievances, Su-kwang leaves, and Min-joon follows him out to emphasize that he’ll shield Seul-bi… due to the fact she’s “his lady.” (Nooo I was rooting for you!)
Following the confrontation, every single of the 3 parties involved – Chairman Sun, Su-kwang, and Min-joon, that is – decides that Seul-bi wants to be protected from absolutely everyone else, and that the way to do that is to have her move to a new residence.
Of course, they every single want to be the one particular to pick mentioned residence, under no circumstances thoughts exactly where she desires to reside, and to be the only one particular who knows exactly where she is.
So it is tiny wonder that, soon after getting told by 3 diverse people today to pack her issues and wait for them to inform her exactly where to go, Seul-bi leaves to obtain her personal location to reside. For the initially evening, she crashes in Yoon-ho’s workplace, and when he finds her the subsequent morning, she asks to borrow adequate money to get an apartment and start out earning her personal hold.
As an alternative, Yoon-ho heads out to obtain Su-kwang, who’d referred to as him in a panic the evening just before searching for Seul-bi. When he’s gone, Seul-bi leaves once again, inspired by Dae-sik’s suggestion that she attempt earning income by fortune-telling.
The neighborhood shaman (who previously met her and recognized her astounding present) happily requires her on, and quickly all the shopkeepers are lining up to have their futures study. Most of her guidance is cryptic and not promptly helpful, but she is in a position to alert them to a nearby murder-suicide try, saving many people today at when.
That, of course, is how Su-kwang finds out exactly where she is. He angrily drags her out of there, saying this is no diverse than what she did as Chairman Sun’s prisoner, so why each to run away in the initially location?
Which tends to make no sense, due to the fact – though I get that there’s a stigma involved – one particular life was forced upon her from birth, and the other is anything she chose as a indicates to help herself and also aid people today she considers mates.
Meanwhile, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes. Recall that kindly fisherman who rescued Su-kwang from drowning and gave him his deceased son’s identity? Turns out, he and Seul-bi’s parents have history – and not the superior type. In truth, though they had been out from beneath Chairman Sun’s thumb, the fisherman attempted to kill Seul-bi’s father, only stopping due to the fact Seul-bi’s mother utilised her powers on him.
With some prodding and threatening, he gets Seul-bi’s father to admit that Min-joon’s uncle is backing him and that he’s agreed to hand Seul-bi more than in exchange for a reward. He fails, partly due to the fact he keeps stalling for additional time with her, and partly due to the fact Seul-bi decides to return to her mother – and Min-joon – of her personal accord.
Speaking of Min-joon, when he and his ex-fiancée are not obsessing more than Seul-bi, they in fact have quite superior chemistry with every single other. Their verbal sparring could virtually be banter if they’d let it, and she at least has admitted to harboring feelings for him.
Now that Seul-bi’s back at the hotel, Min-joon sets out to prove that he’s diverse from his father. He offers Seul-bi free of charge rein to decorate her quarters, open windows, and have complete kitchen access. (So generous!) Each time she gives a future reading, or even extends her hand to him, he declines, insisting he does not want to use her powers.
Properly-intentioned as that may possibly be, Seul-bi deflates just a tiny every single time. It is a stark contrast to all the hand-holding she got utilised to with Su-kwang, and it undoubtedly does not make their dynamic any much less stifling than it was just before she left.
Chairman Sun, meanwhile, is not pleased to have her back. He now desires to hold her away from Min-joon, calling her a witch and acting additional paranoid and confusing than ever just before. We get a bit additional background on what occurred with Seul-bi’s mother, but even that genuinely just brings up additional inquiries rather of answers.
In his early adulthood, Chairman Sun had promised to free of charge Seul-bi’s mother from her confinement for superior, but as additional time passed and he kept getting excuses not to cross his father, her aggravation grew. That is why she ran away with Seul-bi’s father. But the vagueness with which she answers Seul-bi’s inquiries about him tends to make me start out to be concerned that there may possibly be a couple of additional birth secrets left in store…
Regardless, the show appears determined to set Chairman Sun’s father up as the genuine villain and to make Chairman Sun himself a victim of his personal cowardice. Via his repeated nightmares, we understand that Seul-bi’s mother when attempted to kill the evil elderly chairman – only for her personal mother to jump in front of the bullet.
But mentioned mother is not dead, and shows up at Su-kwang’s fish shop out of the blue, asking about Seul-bi.
As for Su-kwang himself, thanks to Seul-bi’s predictions placing him at the center of marketplace action, he’s now been officially re-branded as fortunate rather of unlucky. And he’s also reclaimed his genuine name, officially closing his personal missing individual case.
I genuinely do not know exactly where the story is going from right here. But honestly, I want Seul-bi could just leave absolutely everyone behind and go reside her life even so she pleases. Possibly she could travel the globe and bring Yoon-ho and his son along just for entertaining.
But the genuine query I took away from these episodes is: exactly where can I obtain many people today determined to obtain me a residence?
