There were so many speculations about possible new events leading up to episode 12, but I don’t bother piping in because after 11 episodes, I realize that while the writers still adhere to some K-drama staples, this show hasn’t been predictable at all.
For others, today’s developments might have felt rushed again, but honestly, I like that the pace is fast. There’s no need for meandering sub-plots, and I quite enjoy when issues between our leads are quickly resolved, but at the same time, they they don’t just examine their thoughts in a passing manner. The drama shows the characters weighing their thoughts before choosing to act on them.
With the exception of some cringe-worthy scenes in English, episode 12 for me was daebak … (Edit: Let me clarify that I’m not bothered by the accents of the actors. I’m talking about the awful acting of the actual English speakers, and the inelegant and well-worn English dialogue.) Actually, if there are a couple of major complaints about today’s episode, it would be that we didn’t get close-up kisses! Yeesh!
Next week, we leave Urk behind, as both the medical team and the soldiers return to Seoul! There’ll be fun, drunken times as well as action once again! 🙂

Mo Yeon to Shi Jin (Translated by kimyoungah)
Before Captain Yoo came, I have been treating patients, even though I had to lower my head sometime, there is nothing to be shameful for. In the future, I will regularly confess like this. I mean I decided to try taking responsibility with you, and please try bearing with my nagging, too. [But instead,] please promise me one thing only: Please give me the right to worry. Even though I cant worry for every time that you are not by my side, when you have to go to do something that will really make me worry, please tell me first. And when you coming to me, don just haha hoho like that. (She means he doesn’t have to comfort her every time.)
