Good morning chingus! I will write about my thoughts on episode 7 later today but I just wanted to say something because I saw a couple posts saying "well it's HJ's fault because she lied first". Truth is: it was definitely not mature of HJ and HR to decide on this plan to let HR pretend to be HJ. But it was planned that SJ would never see HJ again. But it's always like that... a small lie follows another and another. And in the end it's all just a mess. To say that it's all HJ's fault that HR is pursuing SJ is just wrong. To meet SJ behind HJ's back and getting closer to SJ knowing that HJ still has feelings for him is NOT okay. It's something HR chose to do despite the fact she knew it's wrong. But I have some more thoughts on HR I'll share later.
Thinking about it... without having seen the episode... I think it doesn't matter whether SH has feelings for HJ. Because HJ never really saw SH as a romantic interest. She even called him "orabeoni" which is like friendzoning a guy. LMAO BUT it could happen that HJ turns to SH when everything is revealed to SJ and about HR and if SJ rejects her. But in the end because this is a Korean drama... it will always be HJ and SJ. BECAUSE of the first part of the episode. Because they have their cute moments together. Because HR was never HJ but the girl who called him names all the time and only fell for him after he became this handsome guy. He was ALWAYS a good guy even as a "fatty" but to HR he was never interesting enough. And for SH... he is a bit of comic relief for this show and we haven't seen enough of him to actually know WHO he is and why exactly he fell in love with HJ. Just my two cents! Definitely will get back later when I have seen the episode myself.
@suchadiva42 @ruzikie @nonski @raindrops1 I had this suspicion since the moment HJ comes back from work to visit her family... and HR is there. And usually HR notices HJ right away but in this scene both - HR and HJ's family - didn't even know she was there until HJ screamed. And I thought this was so horrible! How can a family not notice their daughter/sister is there!? And not even HR! Because HR was so happy being surrounded by a warm family. She forgot about HJ. Just like now she is forgetting her "friend" over SJ - HJ's first love.
@nonski I try not to think anything but I guess the writer is determined to make HR unlikable. And I'm going to say it again: You're not a friend when you put your feelings for a guy above your friendship with your best friend. Especially when the guy is the best friend's first love and it's clear she still has feelings for him. HR is disqualifying herself as a good friend imho.
@Lyrayoo I guess then SBS dropping the drama could be a good thing. That way neither MCW nor LJW are stuck with a drama that could change directions in the mid of the drama. Oh wait... isn't this the case in like every K-drama!? xD No seriously... if SBS would've kept it despite not being happy with it this drama could've gone wrong like big time. So maybe we gain something good out of it?! I'm just wondering how MCW and LJW are bound to this drama. I mean could they already signed contracts and now have to wait until the drama is completely dead before they can move on?!
@Kasmic Not going to throw anything at you. You have many valid points. But at the same time I think HR is making it to easy for herself. I mean she has been friends with HJ for YEARS. She knew about SJ and about HJ's feelings for him. And the fact that HJ still has the puzzle piece which connects her with SJ should make HR realize that no matter what HJ says HJ's hearts says otherwise. And as a FRIEND to severe what could prove HJ is THE REAL HJ was not a move a friend would do. A friend would put the feelings for the guy aside - at least until it's clear HJ has moved on. I really try to understand her motifs though. And again I'm also fighting FOR HR because she deserves somebody who loves HER. But not as fake HJ but real HR. I mean everytime SJ mentions something about HJ HR comes back to reality... realizing "this is a lie... this isn't real". And that's unfair to her as well. I understand she doesn't want to end it because SJ is treating her so well. BUT honestly it's not like she never had the chance to find a guy like SJ who would love her and treat her good. She chose to live the life of a partygirl. She only cared about hanging out with goodlooking rich people who in return only cared about her looks. When you only look at man that way you'll never find a guy who will treat you for who you are. So HR's misery is mostly self produced.
