A chocolate theory…

There are many possible theories -- and conspiracy theories -- as to who the intended recipient of the chocolate was.  The adult DS could have given it to somebody else off-the-screen, and there’d be a flashback to explain it. She could have totally mis-remembered the chocolate and didn’t give it at all. 

But if we simply consider the props found at the time, it’s simple.

Jinjjoo was surrounded by four items: 3 schoolbags and 1 coat jacket. There were four boys inside.

DS ignored the two schoolbags which were located right beside her but reached over Jinjjoo to where the schoolbag with the coat jacket on top, was placed on the floor.  People naturally assumed that she was placing something inside the schoolbag. 

I think there’s a misdirection there.  DS was actually going for the coat jacket. She was putting the chocolate inside the coat jacket.  

The three schoolbags belonged to the three high school boys. Only one kid didn’t have a school bag because he didn’t go to school.

TK however wore a jacket to his baduk school.  She thought that the coat jacket belonged to TK. She didn’t know that the coat jacket belonged to SW because the jacket was folded.

 

i dont think DS really think that the coat jacket belonged to TK, Cuz Taekie come to the room with his white jacket, he already wear his own jacket. And if she really think that the coat jacket belonged to TK, why she just pulled him out to go to brazil dubokki without remind him about the jacket ?

Cuz she already know the jacket doesn't belong TK

I think that chocolate is belong to one of the boys who's get into school (DR, JH, SW) (the one who had a bag, I mean, but taekkie had a bag too, okay okay I'm out of my mind again), later episodes the writer bringing us to see SW likes DS with so much teasing, so we believe that SW might forgot he got the chocolate, and he is the future husband we all been waiting for. We just didn't realize that later again (I don't know which episode lol) SW is out of the game because future husband stated DS got a heartbroken from SW on a snowy day.

In that episode (ep 2), it left us with DS saying this words "aisssh, it was him, it's been almost 30 years, so I guess he forgot, he was so smart back then too". And this eliminate DR as the husband, because we all knew that DR isn't that smart, ehe.

So, it left us with the one that smart, had that school bag and really didn't get that chocolate.

 

Ps: I actually want to see SW reaction to the chocolate, but we didn't see that :(

The chocolate theory could be correct,because as guessed earlier,there were some minutes left intentionally in the camcorder.So we don't know when taek went out of the room,do we? Did the camcorder record any of his stills?

This is the first in any korean drama of which I do not mind whether Deoksunie ends up with JH or Taek-ie. I'm rooting for both ships! Finally my heart can be at ease. HAHAH :D:D

@packmule3 I love all your theories but this chocolate one I find it hard to get behind....

For me I think the chocolate is merely a prop device, to signify Love or crush ( AND sneaky product placement)... I think its quite obvious her first crush is Sun woo. It has appeared for Sun woo, JH and JB related scenes...  

Prior to them all going to JH's house, it looks like all the kids filed in from somewhere, which I assume is their HQ - Taekie's room... And when queried where the star of the event was, they said he went to borrow comic books for DS. She has already seen him just now, known he was wearing that white jacket. The adults even remarked how daring of her to command  ( I quote the subs ) "the almighty Taek" to run these menial tasks for her.... I find that quite telling that DS secretly LOVES to order Taek around, because he is HERS to command... His wallet of money is her's to spend, his suitcase used to contain her stuff ( ok and some of his necessities of course), his camera, his walkman lol ... "What's yours is mine' in action ! 

Coffee always appears for TK-DS scenes.... Could it be because, coffee is both sweet and bitter? But it perks you right up too! :) 

Just sharing my thoughts... I love to read more of your theories too! Thank you for spending the time and effort to write them!

p.s: The adult DS could have been in total denial mode because its not like she never lies... She already pretended she forgot that she wrestled Taek and injured him only 9 years ago ( in ep10) ... Because how can one forget something like that? In less than a decade too? She was also 9, not 5... She is just embarrassed for the reason hence she decided that she did in fact, not give her hubby the chocolate... That, and that carbon monoxide she had been inhaling...

Can I just make a request?  Can all of these long posts be put under a spoiler?  It makes it easier to go through the thread.

No matter how many times I re-watch the scene, I still think it hints very clearly that the chocolate was in Sunwoo's bag or jacket because he's the last one to pick up whatever remains or left around Jinjoo. I believe this scene is also to distract us to Sunwoo (who was a decoy then) and that Sunwoo was indeed DS's first crush. The way older DS react about whether the husband got the chocolate, it's also seems like she totally forgot about it (after all Sunwoo was her very superficial crush) but the husband insists on not getting the chocolate, which I think is the truth here. So the husband can be Taek or JH (or even DR), who didn't receive the chocolate that older DS mentioned.

Regarding Sunwoo's reaction to the chocolate, I have 2 possibilities:
1. Jinjoo found and finished all the chocolate and Sunwoo was not even aware of receiving the chocolate.
2. DS gave Sunwoo's candies too and he also reacted surprise but then also oblivious to these candies. So my guess is that he's quite used to receive gifts/letters from girls (mind you, he's the class president, I think he can be popular among girls) and since he already knows his feeling toward Bora, he doesn't bother to any of these gifts.
After saying this, I know Sunwoo attends an all boys school, but he may have reputation among the girls in the all girls school. He plays football well, class president, studies well. I will be surprise if he doesn't have any girls crushing on him.

JB being a detective? It makes sense! He just like walking encyclopedia, knows anything that most people don't. Just like Detective Conan or Sherlock Holmes! kekeke

@carolinedl I thought in R97 there was a scene where TW giving advice about the student's future, no? 

If he wears the clothes he wore for his first date, plus the hat, he's dressed for success.

You mean those sooo realistic talks with SW's classmates right before he handed his resignation? I remember the satoori announcer haha.

Lol yes now I think about it. Plus the next scene where YJ reads SW's fanfic.

Sometimes I think that 1997 was more simple and more outrageous, but on second thought I just got used to the writer's humor. This one is just as bad. :lol:

@kaqueski  I'll take option No1. If nothing else,it's JJ and food.

Oh i can't escape a chocolate theory in everywhere i go many people talking about the theory in everywhere 

So may i can share my opinion too you guys "i think Why Adult husband ask DS "Who she give chocolate to...?"

1. If the husband is TK why he don't know who DS give chocolate to...? He know DS like JH so why he ask her again ? it's not make sense 

2. If the husband is JH and he ask her again in present because he uncertain who DS give chocolate to...? because JH know DS like SW and TK like DS too so then he uncertain who DS give chocolate to SW or TK and he has to ask her again for sure

PS. Oh! guys sorry for my English skill because some word i use google translate LOLLLL

It's really interesting to read the chocolate theory.

But as I see, the 4 stuff around JinJoo this time are easily identified whom they belonged to. First is the coat jacket. DR and JH wore their sport uniform with their jackets on. Taek wore his white jacket too. Only SW wore school uniform (white shirt and sweater) that time, and left his jacket outside. It was the blue vest of his uniform. So it had SW's name tag on it. DS couldnt mistook. 

Second is the 3 bags. Taek didnt carry any bag to JH house (he came with some comic books for DS). DR and JH's bags had same style and were totally different with SW's. DR's bag is white, JH's is black, but SW's is faded blue. Each boy basically uses 1 bag only. So being their close friend for years, DS easily recognised which bag was SW/JH/DR.

Sum up, I believe the one received DS's chocolate in ep2 was SW who was also her crush that time. The point is we dont know what happend with the chocolate bar after that. Maybe:

1- Jinjoo ate all before SW took his bag and went out with the others so he had no idea about the chocolate.

2- He figured out a chocolate bar in his bag and reacted like the time he received the cassette tape and candy in his locker. He's top student, handsome and kind. No reason he didnt have any girl crush on him but he'd already had someone in his heart so he didnt care about those kinds of gifts. Therefore, he'd gave the bar for his BR (for some nonsense reason) or JJ. Or at the tokkbokki restaurant, he found the chocolate and shared it with his friends without hesitance which made DS really speechless.

However, according to the argument between DS and her husband about chocolate in 2015, maybe there was another time she gave chocolate to the guy around the last months of 1988. So in 2015, the 2 was talking about 2 different events. I guess it was in the magnito game, DS gave JH something (chocolate) but it was not revealed yet.

I noticed that DS really likes sweeties so chocolate/ candy was her favourite things to give others as a gift. ( I think that's why she found herself clueless and childish to choose a birthday present for JH - her current crush -so she asked Mi Ok for help) So at 1988 Christmas, she didnt know a bit of JH's feeling, she treated him like a friend, gave him a gift and waited for her secret santa giving her another gift.

I revisited ep 2 to verify the chocolate theory.  It was obvious that the chocolate was given to SW and the jacket belongs to SW.  

Now, I am not so sophisticated so my simple thinking is this: DS remembers that in the past, she gave sweets and chocolates to her crushes and since she did have a crush on SW and JH around that period, she couldn't remember exactly who she gave it to.  

My second theory is this: the chocolate aforementioned is not the "Jin Joo" chocolate.  So if TK shippers or JH shippers would like to find out, perhaps they can go through all the scenes where DS was interacting with them and find out if she did slip in a chocolate in one of the scene.  I am pretty sure that Jin Joo ate the chocolate given to SW as the wrapper was on top of DR's bag where it wasn't before.

 It was the sausage wrapper, no? JJ was eating the sausages and you see that it is the wrapper from the sausages just before...

I read another interesting account. Bogum was at the KBS variety show awards as a presenter and winner. Many many countless variety show PDs said hello to Bogum and asked about how PD Shin is doing lately. KBS is PD Shin's hometown. He bowed in 90 degrees, answered those questions. All show performers and PDs asked him who is the husband or 'You're the husband right?' Everytime Bogum's face was smiling but looked  miserable. either can't tell a lie or can't tell the truth. He answered 'How would I know?' awkwardly, but his face was showing that he knows the truth. He really can't tell a lie.  He repeated this awkward greetings hundreds times. The witness wanted to break in and rescue him.

@saturn. thanks for the info. For the last 4 EPs to come, the spoilers are alarming(not in a bad way). Like we get stuffs everyday. 

I'm happy for PBG, that boy has been busy.

reply%201988%20daughter%20in%20law_zpsar

Deok-Sung is the daughter that JH's father wished for. The way DS and JH's father LOVE their loved ones are so identical, they could be father-and-daughter. But I'll explain more with details later. 


I rewatched parts of ep 2 after reading on your chocolate theory.  I had noticed that JH's father called her his friend.  I think that is the highest compliment any dad could give his son's friend.  DS' mother and father had wished for Taek to be their son in law but of course SW's mother also claim him for Jin Joo.  I am open to the theory that Taek may end up with Jin Joo based on the famous baduk player Taek is modelled after.  SW's mother was on the money when it comes to her prediction about the apartments in Gangnam.  And if we google the character Taek is modelled after, he and his wife actually stays in Gangnam.  But then again we are now on the verge of seeing Taek's father and SW's mother ending up together so let's see how far the story will diverge from reality.  Already the baduk player did mentioned that there are many differences between Taek and him.  Interestingly, even after having two sons, JH's parents also wanted Taek to be their son.  *lol*  Taek is really likeable and popular.  What's not to love about Taek?
