“Dear My Friends” Episode 11 Preview + Thoughts on Week Five

This Wan/Yeon Ha shipper was very happy this week and I even watched their two major scenes in Episode 10 several times. Those scenes left me thinking “That’s love!” You can’t be gone for three years then just show up and expect him to welcome you with open arms. But she expected it and he quickly gave in. Of course he had to pull her into his arms when she started to cry. If I were him, I probably would have given her more hell but as I said, ‘That’s love!” At the end of the day, he was happy she was there. My only issue was that I felt that their reunion kiss should have been more passionate.

But despite letting her in, he still had to protect his heart. When the woman who left you at your lowest point starts to leave again, it makes sense to tell her to make it permanent, after all, she had once reneged on her promise. But she fought to make him understand that it was different this time and I loved when he stroked her ring because it showed he had noticed that she’d recommitted to him.

I’m not a fan of Sung Jae and Hee Ja and his “tricking” her into an overnight trip but I liked their quiet moments at the motel. It was nice to see another facet of their relationship and see them actually connect instead of the usual of him hitting on her and her rebuffing him.

A negative of this drama for me is Choong Nam’s stagnant storyline about her mooching friends but it looks like it’s finally moving forward. I can’t wait till she gets rid of them. The only thing I disliked about the final scene was that her nephews were absent. I think they genuinely love her and while I understand that it was meant to show that her older friends/family were those she could rely on, I still wish they’d also been by her side.

Jeong A finally left her husband. Yes! And while the preview teases that he will finally plan their trip, a part of me wishes they don’t reunite because his maltreatment lasted far too long. But there’s the other side of me that feels that a 50-year-long marriage is worth keeping if interested parties change their behavior. It’s said that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks but it’s a drama so let’s see if Seok Gyun truly changes.

The show is winding down but we’ve still got six more episodes. While it’s true that Nan Hee still doesn’t want her daughter to marry a disabled man – even if it’s awesome Yeon Ha – I hope we don’t spend endless episodes on her disapproval of their relationship.
