The lost puppy just needed a shoulder to cry on. His tears and sadness are to be washed by the rain too. He sits there not waiting for anybody; he just needs to sort his feelings and pick the broken pieces of himself together.
“Was he that great? … How great was he that you gave up the man you liked?”
“That person … whenever he’s holding the guitar, he became a transparent person. Clothes, hair, shoes, I saw nothing. He just became music himself. Just like Shin, the you now.”
“Why? You don’t like him anymore?”
“Don’t I have you now?”
Rainstorm is over; here comes the sun.
It’s too soon for him to turn over a new leaf. When Kyuwon’s friends talk to him, he doesn’t even turn his face towards them.
But when he hears Kyuwon’s been looking for the necklace, he can’t help but think why she took what he said casually so seriously …
The Applied Music teacher asks him to take responsibility for the arrangement of the musical ending song.
I wonder what mixed feelings he has when Kyuwon gives him the necklace.
But I surely thinks he finds himself strange feeling disappointment when she says she likes him no more.
And Kyuwon just points out that it’s the first time he calls her by her name. He’s surprised himself?
The end of the slavery contract. The end of their story?
But circumstances will give them a new start? The teacher asks them to work together for the musical ending piece arrangement.
I like that Shin is very frank to Kyuwon and Kyuwon is very honest about her having liked him before. Shin thinks he has the upper hand in the new start when he finds out Kyuwon is heading towards the wrong direction for the library …
But soon enough, he realizes it’s Kyuwon’s turn to fight back. “Isn’t this some kind of revenge?”
He doesn’t realize he’s giving the girl ‘that look’?
They have much in common … they have passion for music. And they’re both working hard for the musical.
He cares about Kyuwon so much that he goes to the lady’s room to check on her? Or the lavatory is unisex?
What exactly did he mean to do reaching out that hand in the very beginning. He changes his mind to play cool?
But the act of getting on the bus totally betrays him.
I wonder what you think about my ‘Heartstrings’ post titles. I actually gave much thought to each and every one. For this one, I thought of ‘I don’t want you to know I’m looking at you’, ‘I’m looking at you while you’re trying hard to look away’ … So clumsy and so not cool!!!
Then I remember the Jejudo lighthouse scene. They saw each others’ backs but not the faces and Shin even liked Kyuwon’s back (he took a photo). Now it’s Shin’s new chapter of his life. That little chat with his mom is enough for him to heal that sore spot of his heart. He knows why his mom loved his dad and she surely loves him, even though he’s ‘the same’ as his dad. So he’s finally ‘free’ to love music and be a guitar freak?
With the end of the slavery contract, Shin sees the other Kyuwon, the girl with her own passion to create unforgettable memory and so brave to reveal her feelings … I cried listening to her sing ‘I will … forget you…’
Will Kyuwon look at Shin again? Love at second sight too? When she gets to look at the ‘real’ Lee Shin?
You find the change in Shin’s attitude too drastic? I can make some sense out of it. It’s OK if you don’t agree with my thoughts. Thank God I don’t have to care what my readers feel … for I don’t write to get high hits. (Edit: I mean I don’t care if my readers like what I write. My bad. I have a problem telling my own thoughts; I keep thinking what Lee Shin thinks!) I just wish the PD and script writers have such freedom and make a drama they themselves like and think is good.
