h Yeon Soo, as always, brought great performance especially in the last two episodes. she cried like a million times in this drama. not to mention Lee Dong Wook, who played opposite her, showed another side of him. this series all the more proves his versatility as an actor. though it's very Adult Content, i can say, it didnt just focus on adultery, divorce and sex. the theme is rather dark and deep (disturbing at times). it's explains the consequences loneliness can bring to people and how the main characters fought against their fears and insecurities. this is why i consider this a great great drama.
spoilers ahead **
i think it's in a way a happy and sad ending... im still sad that Junsoo did die. i was hoping that he could have been saved but yeah from the height of the fall it's quite impossible. EP24 is definitely an intense episode. how JS and HJ spent their last night together, im happy that JS was able to let out the pain that's been killing him and HJ was beside him, to console him and to be his strength. i love how they found comfort in each other's embrace. when JS was pushing HJ away from him, im happy HJ didnt believe a word he said. that's how much they understood each other. HJ knew that Paris was just an excuse for committing suicide. they connect so much that it makes me believe they're destined, it was not mere coincidence.
JS and HJ, they both have deep wounds in their hearts. both of them have a fear of being abandoned and taken for granted. what gives them a reason to want to live is each other, it's the great LOVE they have. it totally broke my heart when JS kept saying he wanted to die and HJ was crying so much. when HJ's voice over says she thought she could change JS's mind, but nothing could stop him, nothing could change him, not even love. that was soooo sad. in the end, he kept his promise, he died before her. JS said that he wanted to live for her but there's a hundred of reasons why he had to die. i just wished that HJ was greater than those hundred reasons, then he wouldnt have to think of dying. i cant seem to accept how JS left HJ alone when she also needed him, she was also in pain. im so sad just thinking about it. another thing that broke my heart was when HJ said he wasnt dead yet since she's still living in her heart. im glad that after a year, HJ was able to move on.. though she had to face the world alone. the hand gesture is a sweet memory, it was a way for HJ and JS to connect even when they're apart. i think this is where the happy ending is, they're still together, JS will always be beside her, as long as she raises her hand to the air, she will see him. but HJ's last words were as long as she doesnt long for him, she wont see him. does that mean HJ is willing to forget him?
Junsoo is a character kind of hard to understand. there's a lot of things going on in his mind, that he wanted to break off from all of them. he continues to live by each day but in the end, the guilt still bothers him. because of this guilt, he doesnt accept HJ into his life. i dont understand why he doesnt have the confidence for this relationship when HJ said a lot of times that she's gonna give up everything for him and she doesnt care about his past. it's a pity that they didnt have a happy ending, well at least in the real world.
on the other hand, Hyejin is a character very easy to love. she's charming (and can act immature at times) but pitiful as well. i love how she's always calm and seldom raises her voice. she's so pure and delicate that's why most of the time i feel for her. it's hard to see her hurt and in pain. everytime she looks at Junsoo, her intent eyes were full of longingness. but then again, she kept that inside. it took a lot of courage for her to confess to Junsoo. she couldnt even make a call when she cooked something nice for him. but when she decided to really pursue this relationship, she begins to ask questions to Junsoo that made him mad. she was just dead worried though that was unlikely of her, since she always chose to be quiet, to just bear the pain inside. it was a big decision for her to risk all even her kids for Junsoo but he still preferred to die. i know he was undergoing a lot of problems himself, but still, he could have stuck with Hyejin till the end.
