Oh, Sun Woo, you’re in a mess!
I’ve read comments that our chef truly likes the real Bong Sun because he confessed to liking her when she wasn’t possessed but any way you slice or dice it, as far as I can see, this guy fell for SunSoon. On the plus side, he thinks she’s is over the top and probably can’t deal with her 24/7. And he said that he likes the neutral side that doesn’t apologize every time nor want to get into his pants so there’s hope for Bong Sun because I think he likes her more confident self. But who does he run to protect and kiss when she’s wet? SunSoon. It’s a drama so all will end well but in reality (if such a thing existed), he’d miss Soon Ae once she leaves for the afterlife and he and Bong Sun wouldn’t work out because regardless of how much he might complain or push her off him, part of his attraction to Bong Sun is SunSoon. But luckily for us, even this fantasy story can have a more fantastic ending.
But I have to give it to this show for the most creative love triangle ever. We’re not talking about 49 Days where a guy recognizes the love of his life in another woman’s body. Nope. We’re talking about a man falling for two women in the same body while thinking she’s bipolar and managing to kiss both in a single kiss… and we’re not talking college triple kisses here. I mean, how can he start a kiss with one woman and end with another? Brilliant.
And why did Soon Ae leave? Is she suddenly benevolent? I mean, this isn’t the first time he kissed her and she didn’t break away then. What’s changed? Their friendship? Or is it something else? What did she realize when he kissed her? Perhaps she’s figured out that losing her virginity isn’t the real reason she hasn’t crossed over. Or did it trigger a memory? I haven’t a clue but I do like that it meant that Bong Sun got to participate in the kiss as well. I just hope Soon Ae hasn’t fallen for him because she so doesn’t have time to waste on becoming her host’s love rival.
Speaking of Soon Ae’s true mission, we’ve now learned that ghosts turn evil when they outstay their welcome. Is that what happened to whomever is in the cop’s body? Our shaman is obviously not powerful enough, thus, I wish that little girl could meet him and tell us what’s what. We know he’s evil and that he’s connected to Sun Woo’s sister’s hit-and-run and despite being an evil bastard, gets upset when others say he needs to be punished. I hope a security camera caught him keying that car.
I also hope that his colleague starts to piece things together because the only person he told about the recovery of that videotape was none other than Sung Jae.
Does he hang around Soon Ae’s family because he thinks she might use the three-year window to settle some scores? Or that he wants to stay close to be first to hear if there’s a break in the case? It could be both. Regardless, I think they’ve teased us long enough and it’s time to speed things up on his end. Show your cards, Writer.
Speaking of teases, what is up with So Hyung? So I actually don’t think she was a tease with him but I’m really not into her sudden desperation and this is coming from someone who shipped them! Girl, you snooze, you lose. I don’t think she was uninterested in him but she’s suddenly going all out when she sees him interested in another woman. Like, did you expect him to never date?
Not that it excuses Sun Woo’s jerkish behavior. Bruh, I realize that your interest now lies elsewhere but is this really something you say to a woman? Dang.
And I don’t care if this was supposed to be him trying to make the best of the awkwardness, gentle rejection or whatever but just no.
But this was a week of jealousy, wasn’t it? Other than So Hyung’s crazy reaction to Sun Woo’s interest in Bong Sun, our dear chef definitely gets petty when he sees his love interest paying attention to another man. I’m sure everyone predicted that he wouldn’t let Cordon win the competition with SunSoon cheering so loudly for him.
Speaking of which, Cordon is still in his one-sided love and the only one that can see what’s going on between Chef and Bong Sun. Are those guys really that stupid? But I can somewhat understand it. It’s like hearing a rumor that Obama has dumped his wife for Ariana Grande. Even if you see some paparazzi photos, you’ll still convince yourself that there must be another explanation.
Soon Ae’s brother’s crush still cracks me the hell up. I can’t handle it and wonder how it will be resolved. lol. I missed that family this week but was grateful for the father-daughter walk. It was so cute.
I suppose they’ll get more screen time when Soon Ae recovers her memories.
I enjoyed the ladies’ team up and more than getting together to win one man’s heart, I can’t wait till they team up to fight Soon Ae’s battle. I’m sure she’ll be the one to figure Sung Jae out and expose him… I hope. The two characters have chemistry and Soon Ae really brings out Bong Sun’s cute side. I loved the person she was on her date with Sun Woo with the vending machine and catching the thief but I also like how she was in her scenes with Soon Ae. It’s funny that love usually changes a person for the better but in this drama, it’s possession. LOL. I suppose it will end up being girlmance which is still a form of love.
It was a fun week with some significant advancements in the story. I doubt the romance will ever fully satisfy me because Bong Sun isn’t present for a lot of moments where Sun Woo is supposedly falling for her but it’s such a fun show that I can live with it. It might not become a romance for the ages but so far, this show is shaping up to be a drama worth rewatching.
Till next week.
