With the bad news that the musical was canceled, Director says he needs to go to the school to talk to the headmaster. Kyuwon wonders if it’s her fault again. Shin asks her not to worry, for Director will take care of things.
Director comes back to tell the bad news to the students. There’s nothing he can do. He apologizes for his not being able to make sure their efforts aren’t wasted … It’s the end of the world to all of them. I mean to capture Shin’s hands below.
Shin asks if he should bring Kyuwon to see a SAD movie. “No.” “What about amusement park to ride the roller coaster?” “Now isn’t the time for that kind of things.” “I just want to let you cry or shout out loud where you won’t be seen and judged.” …
“Don’t you have a lot of good memories already? You captured the coolest guy in the university. This won’t be enough for you?”
“You arrogant brat!”
“I’m not being arrogant, it’s just a fact that I’m real handsome.”
Shin has somebody who cares about his feelings too. His mom.
Her mom tells her own experience during her school days. They didn’t want their hard work go wasted and just performed in front of the school entrance. She asks him not to be too disappointed, there’s always a way out.
The Stupid, Windflowers, Sarang and the sillies are all there to convince Kiyoung to join them. Because they think he’s the only person who can convince Director to help them. Kiyoung asks if this great idea is Shin’s. He will join them if Shin will quit. Just kidding. Deal!
Kyuwon begs him to stay. Shin too. And of course Kiyoung. Even Sarang and the Sillies. Director says he’s staying instead of going to Broadway. They must be their best or they will have to paid for his loss.
The politics in this university is so weird. Even if they are to raise the money themselves and do everything, they have to get approval. Finally, they’re ‘allowed’ to have their own musical. They need to raise money.
Shin and all the Windflower girls are making posters for the fun-raising performance to be held in Carthasis. Two girls have left for snacks but Bowon still doesn’t know she isn’t supposed to stay. Shin gives her this look.
Shin and Kyuwon talk about the old days. Shin apologizes for not showing up that time when she was raising money for her sick professor. He promises that he’ll raise a lot of money (for her) this time.
Kyuwon’s having extra dancing lessons from Yoonsu. She’s all tired and her legs are in great pain.
“I’m so tired.”
“Where has Lee Kyuwon gone? I see a granny in front of me.”
“I’m so tired. I don’t have energy for any talk. I want to go home.”
“I’m not asking you to talk to me. Just sit.”
+1 for the perfect boy friend. Leg massage. Where did he learn the skill? He used to do that for her mom after she went home late standing all day for work. The perfect son too. *sigh*
“30,000 won.” Just kidding.
But Shin seems quite content with that.
Finally they can sleep. No nightmares. A little chat on the phone. But Kyuwon says she’s too excited for the performance at the Carthasis tomorrow. She can’t sleep. “Let me sing you to sleep.” He used to sing her little sister to sleep when she cried, not seeing Mom late at night. Mom worked long hours then. Perfect oppa too. *sigh, sigh*
Comforting song. Take 2.
Kyuwon: Are you jealous?
Shin: Real jealous.
The story that happens in between is long. Anyway, Junhee convinces and brings Heeju to come back for the musical.
“You’re such a good girl.”
“What? I’ve said I’m the 3-month-older noona … ”
Things are getting complicated in the background. Heeju gives Kyuwon extra lessons. The others found out Heeju’s condition but she stays in the team (for help). Suddenly enemies become almost friends. It’s D-1 and at the end of practice, Heeju tease Shin and Kyuwon that they should go home straight instead of hanging around as love birds.
“I should really work hard, for Kiyoung oppa and Heeju too.”
“You’ll be great. Whose girlfriend are you?”
Getting excited and happy at the same time. But Kyuwon hasn’t told Shin her plan.
I read something like this from a teen novel. (I’m teen no more but I look out for good books.) Dreams are supposed to make you fly but they have this gravity. You need to take action to resist the gravitational force. (Not the exact words but that’s the idea.)
Does Shin have a dream? (You know how biased I’m watching this drama. But no apology from me.) Maybe or maybe not. I know he wants the musical ending song to be great. But he said his performance means nothing if the musical isn’t something that makes Kyuwon happy. He takes actions to help Kyuwon realize her dream. She was to become the lead actress. I know she’s a good girl and all but does she have the right to decide anything and this very important thing on her own? Not to mention she didn’t tell Shin, does she owe the other students and Director and Yoonsu an explanation? Does she care if everybody want Heeju?
I’m so sad seeing her tears, not because I pity her. I just feel the hurt of Shin. She gave up her dream (that Shin helped to make it come true). This dream will just suck her back to the ground? Yoonsu had a little chat with her after dance practice. “If after the musical, somebody sees your talent and offers you an overseas study opportunity, will you just leave for it?” Don’t tell me she’ll say yes when some crappy plot becomes the ending of this story. I read news articles saying the drama was meant to portray youth’s struggle, learning while making mistakes and the adults learn from the young at the same time. Can I see this as Kyuwon’s mistake? Or it’s Shin’s mistake to do too much for her? He has no life except her girlfriend’s life. I apologize to Shinhye’s fans that I criticize the character too much. I don’t mean I love the Shin character 100%. The perfect boyfriend image is sweet and all but not a challenging character for Yonghwa; he just needs to be himself. I prefer the Shin in episodes 1-6. I’m strange? I keep wondering what he would be like if there’s no this big plot change thing to ‘save’ the show.
I went to soompi to check on saturn’s post about the filming behind story. Reading it, I’m less frustrated about my frustration (Sorry for bad English). Yonghwa: I love this work very much. So I promise (him) I’ll watch till the very end with a happy heart.
