Cheer Up: Episodes 5-6


Cheer Up: Episodes five-six

This week we investigate what it implies to be a group, from group bonding activities to calling it quits when you just can not hang. The Theia teammates who stick it out develop closer — especially our leads — even as a essential player in our mystery materializes with the possibility of tearing them apart.

We sprint back into the action with Jung-woo reaching the handle space behind the stage and acquiring no 1 there. With no proof that an individual dropped the light more than Hae-yi’s head, every person keeps telling him it was just an accident. But it sets him off worrying about Hae-yi and feeling accountable for her as group captain (at least, that is his official excuse).

When Hae-yi gets entirely trashed at a group drinks evening, each Sun-ho and Jung-woo want to support her get house. This leads to all 3 in the backseat of a cab with Hae-yi lolling from 1 man’s shoulder to the other, till she perks up sufficient to start out enacting cheer routines and smacks them each in the face. Sun-ho finds it funny, but Jung-woo appears irritated — producing me wonder (and it is not the 1st time) how she does not like Sun-ho even a tiny.

The drama is nonetheless toying with the enjoy triangle, even as Hae-yi has created it apparent exactly where her crush lies. When she and Jung-woo get partnered in class and have to speak about their perfect marriage partners, Hae-yi says funds is the most critical issue in a marriage though Jung-woo says it is enjoy. We later see, even though, that she’s written her perfect mate is precisely Jung-woo: a leader who’s warm-hearted as soon as you get to know him. Jung-woo writes his perfect mate is an individual that tends to make him smile, considering of Hae-yi (but I can count on 1 hand the quantity of instances he’s smiled in this drama). Meanwhile, Sun-ho smiles at almost everything she does.

Jung-woo does start out opening up a tiny when Theia goes on a group field trip. He and Hae-yi are late to join and she sleepily snuggles up to him on the bus ride there. His heart skips a beat and he worries about an arrhythmia, haha. It is evening when they get off the bus and Jung-woo is pointing out constellations, causing them to hold hands briefly when he guides her hand in the path of a particular star. In these scenes, I get a sense that Jung-woo likes Hae-yi, but as the squad captain he feels it would be inappropriate to show it.

Just as Jung-woo is bandaging up a scrape Hae-yi gets though operating for the field trip meals, Sun-ho stumbles on them sitting close. Sun-ho’s holding an umbrella for the downpour that all of a sudden begins — hoping for Hae-yi to join him underneath — and we wind up with the trio cramming in to share it as an alternative. It is a funny image, likely my favourite this week, but I’m place off by the continual bickering in between Jung-woo and Hae-yi, which the drama is employing to show their feelings for each and every other. Sun-ho can not take it either and leaves them to argue alone below the umbrella.

For the duration of the field trip, pieces of the mystery puzzle start out to come with each other. When Sun-ho and Hae-yi are walking immediately after dark close to some train tracks, Sun-ho spots an individual taking photos from below a train. He chases the guy and it is an individual from the broadcasting club, who is also on a group project with Hae-yi in 1 of her classes. Hae-yi says not to be concerned about it simply because she has the guy’s telephone quantity, and Sun-ho lets him go. (I’m receiving a tiny tired of Hae-yi shrugging off almost everything that takes place. Rather than seeming pleased-go-fortunate she’s beginning to strike me as an idiot.)

The broadcasting club photographer posts his pics on a site, asking if 1 of the Theia members will die this year. The web page consists of some backstory for the missing member of the group, LEE YOO-MIN (Park Bo-yeon) — who we’ve also come to know was Jung-woo’s 1st crush (who, according to Ha-jin, he’s never ever gotten more than). Yoo-min disappeared two years ago immediately after a light fell on her throughout a rehearsal, and it is rumored she died. Now, the site points out, there are parallels in between that time and this time. They’re so comparable, in reality, it appears an individual is attempting to execute the prophecy.

Most of the group quits immediately after seeing the information on the site. Sun-ho also decides to quit and move on to a new girlfriend given that he has no likelihood with Hae-yi. Then, Yoo-min seems, entirely out of thin air, and will not say something about exactly where she’s been the final two years. Jung-woo is so pleased to have her back, Hae-yi feels ignored and jealous. It appears she does have a explanation to be wary of Yoo-min, even though, simply because somehow almost everything she says sounds like an underhanded threat (not that Hae-yi would choose up on that).

When Jung-woo and Cho-hee discover out (by means of the site) that Hae-yi has been getting threatening texts, they are upset and Jung-woo is a lot far more worried than ahead of. The rest of the story about Yoo-min is that, like Hae-yi, she was also locked in the storage space. At the time, she was getting bullied for dating a freshman on the squad (and providing him “preferential treatment”). So, all the occurrences have been chalked up to bullying. The falling light was assumed to be an accident from a wornout cable. But later, we study that Yoo-min was also getting texts, saying “break up with him.”

This parallels the texts that Jung-woo is getting now, telling him to kick Hae-yi off the group. In this case, it appears they are coming from 1 of the present Theia freshman — who knows about Hae-yi’s 1-month contract to get paid for getting on the squad. He tells her she has to either quit or not take the funds. Otherwise, he will go public about the contract. Just after a lot of back and forth with herself about what she actually values, Hae-yi decides to tear up the contract and remain on the group. (Excellent. Possibly we can have much less arm waving and far more backflipping in future routines.)

At one more Theia pub evening, Hae-yi goes missing from the bathroom and Jung-woo runs all more than the neighborhood to discover her. When he does, she says she lost her telephone (no thought why she’s outdoors) and Jung-woo is so worried and relieved that he hugs her. Hae-yi requires this as a quite romantic moment, eyes wide, asking yourself no matter whether or not to hug him back. The epilogue shows us that Yoo-min is the 1 with Hae-yi’s telephone, creepily reading her messages in the dark.

So, I know that Jung-woo is the lead right here but I just do not really feel the chemistry. With the hug at the finish, I really feel like given that Yoo-min just came back into his life he’s terrified of one thing comparable taking place once more and that Hae-yi will disappear as well. Plus, he’s accountable for the group now. If Hae-yi goes missing on his watch, he’ll really feel even worse. The hug appears like it occurred in that context. On the other hand, immediately after Sun-ho quits, he rejoins the group, and breaks up with his new girlfriend, simply because it will be far more entertaining to be there with Hae-yi, even if he knows he does not have a shot with her. How is he not the apparent option right here?

Whilst I’m not super stoked on the OTP, these episodes give us a handful of new probable pairings that may possibly be far more thrilling. My favourite amongst them is IM YONG-IL (Kim Shin-bi) with his adorable crush on Cho-hee. Till now, Yong-il has largely followed about Sun-ho and I didn’t believe a lot about him. For the duration of the field trip, he gets on stage with Hae-yi and Sun-ja, and the 3 dance to Twice’s Cheer Up. The song could be on the nose but man is their dance cover smile-inducing.

Later, Yong-il sticks up for Cho-hee when an individual is saying awful points behind her back. He also supports her when her rugby captain ex-boyfriend is threatening her — and films it when she beats the crap out of the ex immediately after he slaps her. Cho-hee tells Yong-il not to like her but he’s currently head more than heels. And, truthfully, so am I. I’ve liked Cho-hee given that the starting and Yong-il is just as well cute crushing on her (gotta enjoy that accent). He’s now at the prime of my list of all the guys in this show.

A single issue I’m definitely loving about this drama is the way it handles interactions in between female characters. With Hae-yi, Cho-hee, Ha-jin, and Sun-ja we’ve got a bunch of sturdy personalities. And however they’ve all gotten along with each and every other appropriate from the get-go. There’s no in-fighting or competitiveness and, even much better, they all help each and every other in what ever comes up. The straightforward friendships and modest acts of kindness are just so beautiful to watch. If I have 1 big complaint with these episodes it is that there’s not sufficient Ha-jin — she’s such a rockstar.

And speaking of receiving along, we got a scene this week of camaraderie in between Hae-yi’s mom and Sun-ho’s mom — exactly where the two polish off 3 quarters of a bottle of whisky outdoors a comfort retailer and reminisce about old instances. Whilst I’m nonetheless not certain exactly where the show is taking us with this, I did like watching the two laughing with each other as an alternative of the exact same old fighting and 1-upmanship.
