The Episode Review

Okay this drama has gained me over. Given I got here away from the primary few episodes prepared to utterly obliterate this each week in my recaps, it’s changed into the one responsible pleasure each week I can’t look forward to.

The characters are so god rattling flawed and terrible however it’s nice to observe, in all honesty. This complete Sang-su/Su-yeong state of affairs has been given a lot extra time to develop fairly than whiny Sang-su chasing after Su-yeong we noticed through the first few chapter.

I really like the circle metaphor of going round and round, however that speaks extra about following the group and permitting another person to drive your life fairly than taking management of it your self. And proper now, each Sang-su and Su-yeong have been doing what they suppose they need to be doing fairly than what they wish to do of their romantic endeavours.

The thought of following your coronary heart and being glad, together with Mi-gyeong completely personifying the “money can’t buy you happiness” adage, rings so true right here. It’s ironic that she calls out her father in episode 10, claiming he “only shows his affection through money” regardless of doing the very same factor for Sang-su with that automobile.

The worst perpetrator right here although is Jong-hyeon. I recognize he’s had a tough life however my god, those that play the sufferer card and do completely nothing to assist their very own state of affairs are so irritating to observe. And I do know this will sound heartless but when he’s not ready to assist himself then he’s the worst character of the 4.

Jong-hyeon has a guardian angel in Su-yeong however he treats her with completely no respect, going AWOL for days on finish and racking up massive money owed with the web cafe or ingesting an excessive amount of. It’s simply exhausting for her to deal with and I don’t blame Su-yeong dropping persistence and time with him. It’s not enticing and I really like that they tie this into his police examination.

Jong-hyeon’s response to failing the examination (it’s the tip of the world, my life’s over and so on. and so on.) is such a refreshing distinction to Sang-su and Su-yeong who each nonchalantly shrug off their rejections and see it as one other set-back on life’s journey. But subsequent time, they’ll do higher.

The symbolism surrounding this Hill of Oblivion is completely excellent as properly. Sure, you can go the straightforward method and quick observe your method to success (one other nod again to Mi-gyeong and her household providing him promotions and cash) however going the tougher method, taking it one step at a time and actually feeling the problem and reveling within the exhausting work and grind that comes with it, is finally what life is all about.

The Interest of Love has captured all of this so properly these previous few episodes and whereas all of the characters are flawed and have massive points, there’s rather a lot of thematic weight to what’s taking place which is nice to see. And can we simply discuss in regards to the abundance of awkward moments? God, some of these scenes are toe-curlingly awkward. I adore it!
