During re-watch now, I'll fast forwarded MSS scenes starting from Ep. 41
I'm mostly fine with the wasteland arc for the most part.. To me, NQ acted as he usually are with her in the wasteland.. He's shameless and practical... while its a normal thing for NQ, I think that made MSS confused and flustered with his attitude.
Some like saying "he'll hide behind her forever he he had too" when facing LQ, it's a normal and practical thing for him.. but it confused her... LoL.
He still misses Sang Sang a whole lot...
