We can only imagine what happened right after Shin’s confession. Aww …
Because we’re on the next day already. Shin is waiting for Kyuwon in front of her house again. He’s gonna do this each and every day?! Even his feet are ‘smiling’. And he whistles.
He asks if she feels alright … and then takes out his hand. Kyuwon thinks he wants to hold her hand. But as her hand almost touches his, he moves it away and says, “Your bag.” Bad Lee Shin!
Seriously, I think Shin planned for this.
In the ice-cream shop. Those three senior girls who are there to add laughs to the drama, Sarang and the sillies, happen to pass by and spot Shin and Kyuwon. (Thanks to CebuNuna @ twitter for telling me how to call them properly.)
Shin sees them spying on himself and Kyuwon and becomes totally uneasy and talks to Kyuwon unenthusiastically. “What’s the flavor of your ice-cream?” “Ice-cream flavor.” Kyuwon knows something is wrong. Shin stops her from looking around and asks her to pretend that ‘she doesn’t know him’.
“What do you mean by trouble?”
“Both you and I will feel very tired. You think the girls will leave us alone? You’ll become the public enemy immediately.”
“I never had that experience before, so I don’t know. If you’re worried so much, we shouldn’t go out together anymore.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Don’t you hate that we’ll be seen together and talked about? Don’t want to be discovered that we’re together, how tiring it is!”
” … ” Shin should have explained and not let her storms off like that. ‘Annoying’ Bowon happens to appear at this particular moment!
Stalking them and ‘cursing’ Bowon is meaningless … but funny to us! “Cha Bowon! Cha Bown! Cha Bowon!”
At musical rehearsal. Shin can’t stand Kyuwon talking to Kiyoung and some girl happily and totally ignoring him, so he strums some chords on the guitar.
Heeju seizes every chance to upset Kyuwon. She pushes Kyuwon for no reason. When Shin sees this, he’s not mad with Kyuwon anymore, becomes worried instead.
Just as he’s to apologize, ANNOYING Bowon appears AGAIN.
It’s to go to Kyuwon’s place, telling Grandpa that he wants to hear his gukak life story, thinking that Bowon won’t be following Kyuwon home likes he does. But he has no idea.
Love means sacrifice.
I almost wanted to fast-forward Grandpa’s story telling part myself. But there’s something interesting about his talk this time. “When the news that I’m gonna marry a girl spread, 115 girls vowed they’d starve themselves to death, 225 girls said they’d stay single forever … ” (So Grandpa and Lee Shin have something in common, not sure about the looks however. Grandpa keeps stressing the latter.)
Shin’s so relieved that Kyuwon’s finally home, but seeing Bowon too, he thinks his plan’s totally ruined.
This look of Lee Shin is complicated. Curious. Suspicious. Happy. He hears that Kyuwon bought couple tees for Grandpa and herself.
Grandpa asks them to leave the room for he’ll try on the tee and show them. Poor Shin, Kyuwon’s gotta help him stand up.
Shin’s revenge time. This time on Bowon. He talks her over to stay behind listening to Grandpa’s gukak life story. Kyuwon’s such a good friend! She doesn’t stop Bowon.
“Che Bowon, you’re so lucky today!”
Finally, just the two of them.
“Do I have to use my mouth all the time, saying things out? Since I met you, I’ve been talking much. It’s so unlike me.”
“I think what you said is right. This shouldn’t be spread like news. I don’t want somebody pull my hair.”
Then Shin asks if the couple tees are actually for him and her. Kyuwon lies. “Lucky me. That tee isn’t my style.”
This is like a long commercial for iPad and Samsung Galazy S. They sit under the trees, playing a duet of the music piece that Shin’s finished arranging with the gadgets.
No more bickering but happy talk about music. Shin brags about his being clever while Kyuwon says he just has a good tutor.
He asks if Heeju bothers her too much treating her like that at the rehearsal. He also brings up the fact that she may not have the chance to go on stage at all, and asks if she minds that.
She says she didn’t expect to be the lead from the beginning. “Though it’s all because of you that I started, now I feels singing and dancing like that, learning everything new is so exciting and such happy things too … Thank you.” Music brings them together; music makes them even closer. But still not close enough.
“Don’t just look at my face. Listen to the music.” But he’s gazing at her too.
Here comes the gadget CF …
The next day. Shin’s put a cushion on his bike’s back seat. The nice/mean/nice thing has become the nice/nice/nice thing. Even himself feels embarassed. *sigh*
This is actually dangerous. Their going to school like that.
This is even more dangerous. Their holding hands and walking around being seen by tons of JEALOUS eyes.
Shin teaches Kyuwon to play the guitar. He’s curious why she ties hair all up.
Kyuwon explains her worries … many girls got drunk hearing the news and she’s afraid that the drunken girls will come pull her hair …
“Don’t you have me? I’ll be at your side. So you don’t have to tied up your hair.”
This time Bowon has a reason. Kyuwon needs to be on some performance. Heeju’s mother has found some sponsors for the musical. These rich guys have nothing to do and want to see some performance right away. But Heeju’s no where to be seen. She’s with lovely Junhee who makes her lunch and sings her a lullaby …
Kiyoung’s so nervous. Kyuwon’s such a good girl to encourage him while she’s so afraid herself. Though Shin sees them talking, he isn’t a bit jealous.
Kyuwon tells how afraid she is and Shin tells her his secret.
Kyuwon is awesome. Shin watches with admiring smiles.
But he doesn’t like Seokhyun’s looking at Kyuwon that way. Me neither.
When it’s over. Seokhyun praises Kiyoung and Kyuwon. He’s doing that messing-with-Kyuwon’s-hair-like-she’s-his-puppy thing again. Shin hates it and stops him, saying, “Lee Kyuwon isn’t a kid.”
The Windflower girls tell them bad news: Sarang and the sillies have a station asking students to vote for or against Shin and Kyuwon being a couple. Shin just smiles on it. Kyuwon doesn’t understand.
“Why do you smile?”
“Isn’t that funny?”
“I don’t think it’s funny.”
“No matter what people say, don’t care.”
“I don’t know if you care or not care, but I do care. I feel uneasy and angry too.”
“Such things will happen a lot in the coming days. You have to be angry like that every time?”
“Should I smile like a fool instead? Can’t I be angry …. I didn’t know to be with someone popular as you is like that … I should have thought more on that … ”
Shin can’t understand why she’s mad at him. She’s mad at herself, not being popular like him.
The Windflower girls make him understand.
“What did I do wrong?”
“It’s your fault being too popular … You don’t know Kyuwon’s so worried? … Why can’t you understand a girl’s heart.”
Now he understands and put that in action. He goes to the girls and ends everything with a sentence: “I’ll say this once only: pack up.” The girls’ responses let us realize ‘the power of Lee Shin in the school’.
I don’t like Seokhyun bumping into the frustrated Kyuwon telling her that she’s this charming effect on people that only a few in the world sees it, he one of them.
Shin goes to check if Kyuwon’s gone home, only to find Grandpa complaining that school’s over and she’s not back yet.
Shin’s in his room thinking hard what words to text Kyuwon. Apology. His sister worriedly comes in and asks if it’s true that he and Kyuwon are dating.
“Why impossible? What’s not good about Lee Kyuwon?”
“It’s because Oppa is too good for her.”
“Don’t let me hear you say such things again. I’ll be angry. Go.”
“I can accept you two dating. But absolutely no kisses. If such scandal comes out, all your fans will abandon you. Your autographs won’t sell. That’s the end of everything.”
So his little sister gives him the idea to end this everything. I love the little girl.
Two alpha males at Carthasis.
“Lee Shin, don’t make Lee Kyuwon cry.”
“I don’t understand why Director needs to worry about this. I actually wanted to ask you not to make Professor Jung cry.”
“You rascal, each and every word of yours bothers me.” (We viewers know why!)
Kyuwon just can’t give up this new found love. She keeps checking her phone for messages.
“You have to come to Carthasis tonight.”
A follow-up one.
“Don’t bring Bowon.”
‘Because I miss you … ‘ isn’t the best choice for this scene! Just to boost OST sales? Or they can’t find another song with lyrics like these? “Sorry, I’m sorry, can you hear my words? …. This late confession … I love you.”
Kyuwon really doesn’t know what he’s gonna do? Or because Shin’s casted the spell (whispering the words in his heart)?
In case you haven’t guessed already, my post title was inspired by Beatles’s ‘I want to hold your hand’. Lee Shin wants Kyuwon AND the world to know he wants to be Kyuwon’s man!
