I've been chatting with @kokodus offline and she persuaded me to post my thoughts on the latest episode. So blame her if you think I've gone off the rocker...    Episode 8 was beautifully pu

Needless to say Ik-jun was my hero today. I honestly don't know how he does it. It boggles the mind. He's a single dad, leads the band, does a ton of surgeries at the drop of a hat, interact with patients, lectures, plays match-maker, plays big brother and even dishes out homespun truths where needed. Amazing. Does he even sleep?

 

This, he is like, to good to be true. Such a rare male lead quality with all the thing he can do. Usually male lead have all the ikjun trait but with cold personality or you know, not funny. While ikjun is smart, an extrovert, can do anything, friends with everyone, single dad, leader of the group, perfect with his jobs, gag king. Seriously, whats not to like?

But the thing I appreciate most about him, especially in this episode, is how he supportive he is of Gyeo-ul. I love how he barracks for her and makes himself her cheerleader. I've been wondering for a long time why he's been trying to so hard to bring them together. And now we know... He wants good and happy things for her because she does it tough. She picked one of the toughest gigs in the hospital and slogged her way through her residency from the first year. She's does it all without murmuring but seems to relish the work. Our girl has guts.

Frankly I can't help feeling that what Ik-jun said in this episode about GU's work ethic was not for Jeong-won but for the audience, particularly the detractors of her character from Day 1. All the pile on from a small part of the fanbase because she doesn't fit their idea of the ideal person for JW. JW's certainly not the one with the problem with GU. He knows her and likes her. He's come a very long way from "she's not my cup of tea". That's so clear that it's leaking all over the place in spite of the conflict within.  Sometimes I feel that he's not even trying to hide it either. ;) I hope we can finally bury the whole notion that this has been a one-sided crush. Please.

 

I really loved how Ik-jun framed his counselling session with JW. ;) Yes, he could be construed as a busybody but the way he approached it... wanting the best for the two of them... that was the right tack. And it should be the case. He showed a fair bit of wisdom and drew from his own life experience. Despite what he said though, I don't think it's about God vs Gyeo-ul. ;)

 

I also really loved Jae-hak's arc today. I teared up when he was gifted the box of strawberries. And that thank you note undid me. I too feel that Jae-hak has come a long way under Jun-wan's tutelage since we first saw him. He has the bedside manners but he always seems to me to lack the drive. A deliberate contrast with Gyeo--ul, I would think.

 

 

@40somethingahjumma cut your post to the ones I would like to add or respond to. 

 

Anyone having a senior like Ik Jun as a mentor at work is really lucky. He doesn't only believe in her but he is also eager to groom her to her biggest potential potentially even to follow his footsteps or succeed him, he has also been providing her with opportunities through assisting him and even taking her side when needed. It trully shows a lot about Ik Jun's character when in addition to all this, he also is warm towards other residents, patients' family and get himself involved in some of the personal dilemmas and happiness too. I think this is realistic, but I know this kind is very rare nowadays. 

 

Aside from his passion towards work, what he said to Jeong Won about not ending up like him, makes me wonder if that was the main reason he was coping well being in a long distance relationship with his ex wife for many years, reacting somewhat still okay with the sudden divorce and only focusing on uju and his responsibilities at work. Perhaps he has been pretending and trying hard to keep himself and people around him happy despite not being with the person he trully loves. 

 

 

I am really pleased and proud of Jae Hak, in past episodes I didn't get the impression that he chose CS because of passion and although he showed a lot of empathy to the parents it didn't strike me that he actually enjoys and loves the job. Now, I realise even if CS is not exactly his original passion, but caring and saving his patients is the reason why he is in medicine. There is less story about his frugal behaviours and personal problems recently - I take it as a positive thing. 

 

@Ketu R I guess the mind would see, hear and think what the mind wants to believe.  I guess some people just enjoy and analyse things from a different angle. I don't know. 

My approach has always been to first try and understand the character and then interpret based on what is shown/focused by the story teller.  There are times when I predicted some things inaccurately, but generally, I've been able to follow the story or end game based on the story telling. :) Other than that it is just safer for me to leave other theories different to mine and one that doesn't make sense to me alone. Not everyone would see eye to eye and not everyone would want to try to see it another person's perspectives.

I think we all are watching a completely different drama when I read this thread. Like flowergarden just seemed so done to me this episode. Like writer telling fans it's not song hwa when andrea spoke to his mom. Andrea song hwa scene just was so friend vibe. Her smile for him and asking him to marry was just like a friend or even a sister. And this was there first ever proper scene together. Why would they be put together in such an unromantic way of they are endgame? Also ik joon giving gywool flowers pushing her towards andrea there wasnt even a hint of jealously. How would they end up toghether. ? I really dont get it. 

 

Andrea did not deny ik joon when he said you like gyewool dont you? If he really dint wouldn't he jump he immidately say no I dont. Why stay silent. Even after ik joon says you are even thinking about leaving presiethiod for her. If he had someone else on his mind wont he atleast tell ik joon he was wrong? 

 

Song hwa flew to ik joon when he called. Took care of uju like his mother and sat down to breakfast like his wife. Her face right after he said eating with you is my treat I saw tears. What are people not seeing?? It has been obvious from the start that song hwa considers ik joon more than a friend. They always have the most scenes that are of the romantic nature.

 

Am genuinely confused by this other read. With reply series I really understood fan wars there was serious developments for both camps. But here I see nothing. No offense meant to anyone. I am just expressing my shock at all these interpretations. When there is literally so little to go on. 

I couldn’t agree more. Exactly my thoughts. I always ask my hubby about his opinion because he’s always unbiased 

In reply 1994 he guessed the husband right  from the beginning 

Sometimes we’re mislead, maybe because we tend to overanalize everything? 

I don’t know, but this time I think it’s cristal clear :rolleyes:

Yes, that was beautiful.  My heart broke for IJ this episode.  Just like the heavens weeping for him.  :tears:  She’s not going to return in kind.  It was obvious from their conversation.  There was no meeting of the minds.  She would’ve made a lovely mother for UJu but I guess it takes 2 to tango.  She has to accept him.  Unfortunately for IJ, it looks like she’s low key accepted Andrea.  He gave her his heart (Daddy Long Legs) and she say yes.  They talk marriage and kids in an intimate setting.  Future stuff.

While I can understand where the implication of Flower Garden came from in this episode, I would say that the writer has to build foundation of their relationship from scratch (maybe not exactly scratch) if its true. Considering Songhwa confronted Chihong's feeling about her, why she never confronts Jungwon until now? If they truly love each other, and even single, why not give each other a chance? And they have no trauma or miss timing like IkSong in the past. Perhaps Songhwa feels hesitation toward Jungwon, but again, kinda inconsistent with her confronting Chihong.

 

If Jwon is a potential lover for Songhwa, it will be rectangular love, and I think isnt the writer style so far? But then again, the writer did say it was not the Reply series.

 

Also, Gyeoul has been heartbroken a few times now. Flower Garden becoming the endgame would end up hurting several characters (and me lol). If Songhwa also shakes Jwon's desire to be priest, he will be avoiding her and giving her cold shoulder, and basically treating her different from anyone else.

Right now, i'm a wintergarden shipper. And i'm so ecstatic seeing their progress in this episode. But as i said when i first came here, i was initially IJ GU shipper. I'm fine and open with any pairing as long as the drama can make me understand why this character ends up with this instead of this.

 

I can see the possibility of JW as SH first love. I can see the possibility that the "lets get married" remark can be SH's attempt to see JW reaction. But i don't see the same reaction from JW. I mean he had planned to quit medicine for priesthood since ep 1, almost a year ago, even before he moved to yulje. He had already planned to leave all his responsibilities (DLL and hospital management) to his friends, i think this is why he signed his friends to yulje knowing that his friends are all capable and reliable doctors hence opening up the possibility of one of them managing yulje in one way or another. 

 

If he loves/loved SH, then why is it that he hesitates about going to priesthood now, after he enters yulje? I mean isn't being a priest has always been his aspiration?  

 

During that 20 years of friendship they could have tried to make things work if they were really each other's first love. No one knew IJ's feelings to SH, so he's out of the equation. SHyeong was married, he's also out of the equation at one point. Even though SH dated some people, there must be times when she was single, and JW has always been single. So why not try to act on their feelings? It can be because none of them wanted to break the friendship between the 5 therefore both JW and SH chose not to follow their feelings.  

 

If that's the case then JW should have just gone along with his initial plan and become a priest. Hadnt he already given up his first love SH? So why of all time, he seemed to be questioning himself about his own decision now? Had he never questioned about it these past 20 years? Why now? At the time when GU entered into his life and bothered him? Is it all only coincidence? This is my biggest question for now.

 

This drama has always been good in the narrative, depicting real life event in a way that people can relate to. As long as they can explain or tell a narrative of why things happen the way they are, i'm willing to accept any pairings. And for now i'll just enjoy the pairing the narrative has given to me this far.

Exactly if flowergarden was endgame why no confession until now?? Why would andrea even consider priesthood if song hwa was his love and she had feelings for him too?? Wouldn't they have confessed by now. Both have been single for many years. 

 

Ik joon at least was married for sometime. And iksong are shown to have history. Where is even a small hint of backstory for flowergarden? Andrea has more scenes with ik joon and of course gyewool than anyone else. Today was the only flowergarden scene. Even at 3 seasons shouldn't there be atleast an indication of romance between the two?

Was that a troll though?  There’s no reason for her to keep throwing this possibility at us?  There’s very few of us FlowerGardeners.  We’re on a little boat.  We will take what crumbs she throws at us.  IkSong and WinterGarden are Titanics.  So I agree that if she were to sink both ships it would take guts.  One gigantic iceberg in the form of FlowerGarden.  ChiHong is going to be turned down too from the looks of it?  I don’t see her moving towards a relationship with him either.  Andrea is definitely thawing out to Jang but I am waiting to see if he calls her GyeoUl-ah like IJ does.  Thus far it’s been very formal other than the AnYeong.  If anything he’s starting to treat her like he does Dr Bae which is a big improvement.   IJ has had multiple failings when it comes to picking pairings and judging relationships (like the liver transplant dad last week) - he still thinks ChiHong and IS are a thing.  I wouldn’t trust him to be a barometer of relationships.  So yes I agree it would be a massive outcry if she sinks what she built (but if you really look hard, it’s been unrequited love from the start?) so you could say she didn’t really lead the audience up the garden path.  Just as WinterGarden has been obvious to you from the start, I would say for FlowerGardeners we think the same - it’s there hidden right from the start.  Just different ways of viewing a plot line.  And that’s the beauty of her work.  It’s has multiple angles of viewing.  It really is up to her which way she wants to move.  I am happy she’s given us couple scenes this episode.  It’s been lean pickings for the past 9 episodes.  Whichever way she moves it’s a win for her.  If she feeds WinterGarden, there will be a collective sigh of relief for both Titanics.  But if she opts to feed FlowerGardeners, the outcry will be huge.  Probably big enough for the talk and chatter to continue till S2 and possibly S3.  People remember bad experiences more than they do good experiences.  It’s all in her hands.  Win win for her either way.

OMG...how are going to wait one week for another episode...my mind is going crazy...this is my only drama I am currently watching....no other one....and to think there is only 2 more episodes left....

I am also wishing for the couples to happend...but at the same time this story is so real...so could or could not happend...my favorite is the winter couple...but everything is still in the open...IJ...is my favorite...he really is carismatic, hard working but the most important he observes, look everything, pays atention to detail that is why he knows so much about his friends, the residents, hospital and etc..yes he can be naive with his sister and ex-wife...but he cares for everyone...he really is magic.....
