Do-hyun finally recovers the big chunk of his lost memories and it is a great way to provide a testament on how strong he has grown, since the day he declared his will to find the forgotten past and to face the truth, no matter how ugly it will be. Some things are easier said than done, but for someone who has been surviving in the frightening world by himself like Do-hyun, he might be able to conquer the pain. However, the bigger stake is that it involves his significant other, who might be hurt because of his fight this time. Instead of pain, regret might be bigger of an obstacle for him to overcome…
It’s like watching every single bit of the memories he locked away in his brain came flooding Do-hyun’s mind at once, as he recalled each and every detail of the time he spent in the basement with the child, who turned out to be Ri-jin. The past and the present merged into one, just like how Se-gi was letting Do-hyun to have the memories which were once hidden from the host. Ri-jin’s nightmares and strange lines suddenly made sense to him, but Do-hyun fell onto his knees before letting the gravity to bring himself to the ground.
Inside the villa, the unconscious Ri-jin was disturbed with yet another dream, but it was a collection of the memories she shared with Se-gi, Do-hyun…and another boy. They all uttered the ‘Remember’ lines, but the dream also included yet another scene from the basement, with little Ri-jin pleading for someone to be there faster when the clock struck nine. Do-hyun had not lost his consciousness yet and he tried to find his balance, while the image of his younger self playing with little Ri-jin in the basement crept up on his mind and also those memories of Se-gi spending time with Ri-jin. He became the target of the thugs again, who punched and kicked him until he fell onto the ground again, with Se-gi’s reminder of taking the pain for him echoing in his ears…
Ri-jin stirred up and found herself in an unfamiliar place, while Madam Shin received the report that a man had managed to followed her thugs to save Ri-jin. She didn’t want to have her name involved in the case and the thugs withdrew from the scene after giving the almost lifeless Do-hyun a few god kicks. Poor puppy ㅠㅠ Ri-jin tried to open the door but it was locked, and a strange memory appeared, in which the younger version of her tried to do the same thing. She started to have trouble breathing properly and had to use a plastic bag she found there to help her regulate her breathing. She heard the voice of a boy promising to meet her at 10 PM, but the door opened to reveal a man trying to hit her. Ri-jin went to hide behind a stack of boxes, hiding her face between her knees, just like how little Ri-jin would do in Do-hyun’s memory.
It was only a part of her memory, and the real door behind her was opened from outside. Do-hyun stepped in, with bloody face, apologizing for being late, just like how he used to do when they were young. He fainted on the spot and Ri-jin could only call his name…
Ri-on managed to track down the house and arrived there shortly before Secretary Ahn, and the latter demanded to know who he was. Their introduction was cut short at the sound of cries coming from inside of the villa, and they went into the villa to find Do-hyun unconscious, with Ri-jin pleading for her brother to call the ambulance.
Do-hyun was rushed to the hospital and Ri-jin sent him into the emergency unit (with her colleague wondering why she was there instead of being at John Hopkins), while Ri-on was monitoring her from behind, trying to see if she was okay. Although he urged her to be treated for shock or had a rest for a while, Ri-jin was only focused on Do-hyun’s condition for the time being and refused to budge from her seat outside the ICU, as Do-hyun was hurt because of her. That was enough to trigger Ri-on’s anger, and he stated that it could be possible that Do-hyun was the reason why Ri-jin was kidnapped in the first place. He was disappointed that Ri-jin didn’t even consider his worry for her while she was so worried over Do-hyun and walked away.
He ran into Secretary Ahn on his way out and overheard the secretary’s conversation with someone over the phone, talking about the owner of the villa where Ri-jin was held captive. Ri-on wanted to know who the owner was but Secretary Ahn didn’t tell him since it was still under investigation, but Ri-on had his own method of finding it out. He warned the secretary that if his speculation was right, he himself couldn’t guess what he would do later.
Do-hyun was later moved into a ward and Ri-jin stayed beside him, but Dr. Seok went looking for her to talk about their discussion before, regarding Ri-jin’s memories. Do-hyun had actually regained his consciousness and he only opened his eyes once Ri-jin left the room. I’m pretty sure that was Do-hyun and not any of his alters. Ri-jin shared with her professor about her experience, mentioning that it’s becoming more vivid this time, Dr. Seok found it strange that such thing happened and he himself wasn’t sure if it was a good or bad fate. Ri-jin was now sure that she was a part of Do-hyun’s forgotten past and they met at one point of their life when they were young, so she wanted to try recalling her own memories. She thought that it would be a great help to unite the broken pieces of Do-hyun’s inner self even with one of them recovering their memories, and she’s willing to do so for Do-hyun’s sake, because they had promised to overcome it together, no matter what it was; fear of the basement or any difficult matter.
They had someone eavesdropping on their conversation and it was Do-hyun, and he just walked away from Dr. Seok’s office. Ri-jin went back to Do-hyun’s ward to find the room empty, and she could only imagine the worst. Her imagination might be almost true, because Do-hyun was standing near the edge of the rooftop, recalling the image of little Ri-jin in the basement. He held the photo of little Ri-jin (which he took from the album) high in the air, ready to let it go…but the promise he made with her to overcome everything together made him reconsider his decision. All of a sudden, Ri-jin ran towards him and pulled him down, chiding ‘Yo-sub’ for breaking his promise with her.
Ri-jin: If you want to die, go and do it. But do it tomorrow. If it feels difficult again tomorrow, then die on the day after. If it’s still painful on that day, it’s not too late to die on the next or the next next day. If you stay alive for one more day, a good day will surely come. At that time, the moment you’ll feel like living will come! Please..please save Cha Do-hyun and leave him alone. Okay? Give it a try to live, so that his effort doesn’t go into waste. It’s been difficult for him, it will be too much to take away the possible happiness from him! Okay?
Do-hyun opened his mouth, assuring her that he won’t die; because he’s got something to do, someone to protect, and something to say to that someone, so he couldn’t die just yet. Ri-jin was still able to joke with tears streaming down her face, thinking that it was the first time someone’s words about not dying became so touching and reassuring to her. She hugged Do-hyun tight, but the man could only look at the photo of little Ri-jin in his hand and stopped himself from hugging and comforting his crying lady.
They walked back to the ward and Do-hyun didn’t wait for too long to ask Ri-jin about her decision to recall her childhood memories for his sake. Although it was Do-hyun, his voice sounded almost lifeless as Yo-sub’s at that moment. Ri-jin wondered how he found out about it, but he was thinking if it’s possible for her not to do it. He wished that she could live her life at it was; beside her happy family and all, instead of recovering her past. Ri-jin joked that he was probably scared because of the possible bad past they had between them, and joked that she could possibly be his first love after all.
Tears welled in Do-hyun’s eyes and he tried to hide his face from her sight, while Ri-jin mused that it could be a good memory that would only bring good feelings for both of them. She wished that it would be a very good memory, and Do-hyun couldn’t contain his emotions anymore; he hugged her tight to hide his tears, while Ri-jin was wondering which part of her speech that made him cry like that. He stroked her hair and Ri-jin consoled her crying man.
It was at a temple and Mama Ji went to visit someone there, asking whether something happened for that person to appear in her dreams with a sad face. She was only talking to Min Seo-yeon’s altar, wondering what made her friend so worried these days before recalling a conversation they had through the phone 21 years ago. President Min was pleading for Mama Ji to save her daughter to avoid ‘those people’ from taking her away, and promised to take her back after three days. She ended the call before leaving for a flight schedule from Seungjin building. Back to the present, Mama Ji chided her friend for not protecting her daughter, telling her friend that the daughter had grown up beautifully and got a handsome boyfriend.
Someone had been spying over her and it was one of the men hired by Young-pyo, informing the (not really) old man that someone had adopted and raised President Min’s daughter since 21 years ago. Young-pyo was also being careful about the matter and just like Madam Shin, he wished not to have any relation to that business should it was known to others. Ki-joon wondered what his father was planning this time and remarked that rather than talking about someone else’s weak point, it seemed that his father was more keen on protecting his own weakness. Hmmmm suspicious!
Madam Yoon and Chae-yeon was about to have lunch together when Madam Yoon brought up what she saw before: drunk Chae-yeon being escorted by Do-hyun at the hotel lobby. Chae-yeon wasn’t nervous about it although Madam Yoon was clearly giving her subtle warning not to be too close to Do-hyun, and remarked that she knew who Ki-joon took after when it came to his endless suspicion. Heh. She even thought that her future mother-in-law shouldn’t trust her, because she couldn’t even trust herself. She decided to deal with the matter using her own method and excused herself, knowing that they were not in the right mood to have lunch together at the moment.
Chae-yeon’s mother became the victim afterwards, because Madam Yoon lashed out at her through the phone…and she gave up on nice words, thinking that Ki-joon wasn’t really a catch for her daughter and they could break off the engagement, if that’s what Madam Yoon really wanted. We need to see more of these mother-daughter scenes, because they sure know how to deal with the likes of Ki-joon’s family. The way Chae-yeon talked about, in order for her to deal with Ki-joon, was by suggesting to him that they break off their engagement. Her reason? Because she had someone she wanted to make hers, and she couldn’t possibly go to Ki-joon in her current state. She just apologized before walking out, leaving behind the ruby ring with Ki-joon. Of course, Ki-joon was quick to direct his anger towards Do-hyun, just like what he probably did all his life.
Ri-on went to the hospital to send Ri-jin her clothes but Ri-jin had stepped out to Do-hyun’s house with the intention of taking some clothes for Do-hyun, so Ri-on decided that he could leave her belongings with Do-hyun. But then, he received the information from his private investigator friend that the land around the villa belonged to Madam Shin, so that villa was also hers. Do-hyun also learned about his own mother being the instigator behind Ri-jin’s kidnapping and he was about to head out when he received a call from Ri-on.
There was no greetings for Do-hyun when he met Ri-on, because the man was fuming with anger and demanded to know why Do-hyun was ignoring his warning, despite being the Seungjin’s son. Do-hyun suddenly ‘received’ the memory of Se-gi and Ri-on’s encounter, including Ri-on’s words about his rights. He was on the brink of losing himself to the anger that was stirring inside him and his eyes were full of fury, mixed with sorrow.
Ri-jin packed some clothes for Do-hyun and decided that it would be enough for his stay at the hospital, but a box inside Do-hyun’s wardrobe caught her attention. She was delighted to find out that it was full of Se-gi’s intended gifts for her, and Do-hyun still kept it in his possession! The toys reminded her of Se-gi and she chuckled at the memory, but the toy train brought another wave of strange memories. She saw a boy playing with a set of toy trains while promising that he won’t be late again. A girl’s voice promised to show the boy something cool if he could stay a bit longer, and Ri-jin repeated the lines as if she once uttered them herself. The image disappeared when she was distracted by a call, and it was Daddy Oh, telling her to come home and give her mother a shot, since her mother was feeling weak. Ri-jin couldn’t shake the feeling she had earlier and she kept staring at the spot where the image was once there.
Se-gi didn’t come out this time, because there’s no way he would sit down together and have a civil conversation with Ri-on. Ri-on told Do-hyun about his history with Ri-jin: she became his twin sister at the age of seven, and she didn’t even remember that she lost her memories prior to her adoption. Ri-on made up fun stories whenever Ri-jin had nightmares, and he pretended that he was also scared of the basement just like her. He overheard his parents talking to each other one day and all of a sudden, the name Seungjin was mentioned. Ri-on stated that he became curious, whether Ri-jin had a connection to the chaebol family brought up by his parents, and he started to dig out information about Seungjin. He wanted to find out about Ri-jin’s lost memories first, so that he could decide whether he should tell her, or bury that knowledge altogether.But then, Ri-jin met Do-hyun and she started to recover her forgotten memories. Ri-on’s mind kept telling him that he should stop it, since their meeting would only bring sadness and heartaches, and Ri-jin would eventually recall her memories if she stayed beside Do-hyun.
Ri-on: I beg you. Cha Do-hyun, please send Ri-jin away. The only one who can cut her off from you is you, Cha Do-hyun. So…I beg you.
Do-hyun broke his silence, asking if Ri-on could listen to his plea.
Ri-jin went back home to treat Mama Ji and she bragged about the expensive IV pole she bought using her paycheck money. She said that she came out from her mother’s heart instead of the belly, and Mama Ji asked whether Ri-jin was curious about her birth parents or not. Ri-jin answered that she would ask her mother when she wanted to know about them, and Ri-on was outside the room, listening to their conversation. He begged for Do-hyun, in his mind, for him not to take away Ri-jin and their family’s happiness.
Madam Shin was escorted to Do-hyun’s house by Secretary Ahn and when she asked why Do-hyun wanted to meet her, Secretary Ahn replied that it might had something to do with the thing she was thinking about at the moment. Ohhhh nice, Alfred Ahn! Do-hyun wanted to know the reason why his mother kidnapped Ri-jin and she gave the excuse of doing it not with her right mind. Did she even realize that Do-hyun was beaten up by the people she hired? Madam Shin was taken aback when Do-hyun mentioned Ri-jin being President Min’s daughter and made an excuse that she wanted to meet the lady to see if she had any ulterior motive by staying beside Do-hyun. Do-hyun couldn’t hide his disappointment when his mother was more relieved to find out that Ri-jin couldn’t remember anything about the past, instead of reflecting on what she did to the lady. He wondered if Madam Shin was even a human, or a human’s mother at least.
Chairman Seo went to visit her son Jun-pyo and marveled about how he left home for six years before and now, he had been leaving his mother by herself for more than twenty years. She recalled the time when Jun-pyo returned home after six years of hiding without any news, bringing the six-year Do-hyun together with him when he met Chairman Seo. The little boy held tightly to his father’s hand, and Jun-pyo went back home because he needed the papers to send his son to school. He was probably not expecting to see Min Seo-yeon there and Chairman Seo explained that his father had brought his wife home after she left for the States, bringing with her their daughter, that was little Ri-jin.
The two kids, unaware of the tension brewing between their parents, smiled warmly at each other during their first meeting.
The grandma blamed it all on little Ri-jin, because taking her in as Jun-pyo’s child was the beginning of their suffering, but she herself didn’t even know where to start, in order to find the exact cause of the whole things that happened.
Do-hyun was not done talking with Madam Shin but this time, he’s willing to give her the last chance to follow him to the US and leave behind her greed for Seungjin. She couldn’t possibly do that, because it’s just a matter of time until Seungjin fell into Do-hyun’s hands. Madam Shin pleaded for Do-hyun to let her off the hook this once, and Se-gi gave Do-hyun another piece of his memory, that was the conversation Se-gi had with Chairman Seo when she was told to choose between Seungjin and her son, Jun-pyo. From his grandma to his mother, Do-hyun was honestly wondering where the end was to their greed, and presented to her the reason why he had no right to inherit Seungjin: his multiple personality and his broken self, caused by his own family.
She thought that he was lying to her out of anger, but she realized that her son was telling the truth since she already met the violent Se-gi. Do-hyun explained that Se-gi was one of his alters, and her greed made him turn into what he was right now. What’s even more shocking (or was it expected?) was when Madam Shin started to calculate how many people knew about his illness and she decided that he should hide his illness. or he would lose his chance to get Seungjin. She’s too far gone, indeed, and Do-hyun decided to let the whole Seungjin, and the whole world, know about his illness if she refused to follow him to the US.
On their way to Do-hyun’s house, Ri-on wondered if Ri-jin had made it as a hobby to spill her secrets one after another, and Ri-jin knew that their mother was probably shocked that Ri-jin remembered about her being adopted all along. After 21 years of living as herself, Ri-jin felt that it was time for her to find her forgotten memories, because she was curious whether those memories would shake her stable world. But then, she was confident that those memories won’t break her. Was it different back then: did she feel like she’s breaking down when the memories came to haunt her in the past? Ri-jin felt curious about what her past was hiding for her, and she also fluttered for the memories. Ri-jin wasn’t sure if the excitement she felt was because of Do-hyun, but more importantly, she thought that it was time for her to face her memories. Ri-on didn’t say anything and continued to drive.
Ri-jin didn’t expect to see Do-hyun home since he was supposed to be at the hospital, and the supposedly sick guy was sitting there by himself in front of his house. She bid Ri-on goodbye and went to Do-hyun, asking why he was there outside. He answered that he was waiting for her, because he knew she would eventually be there. Ri-jin thought that he was just like her dog Rina, who would wait for her everyday, and told him to hold out his hand to her. He did so (like a faithful puppy) and Ri-jin stroked the pleased Do-hyun, as if he’s her puppy. Hehe. Ri-on had not left, and he recalled Do-hyun’s request earlier.
Do-hyun: Please give me a day’s time before I send Oh Ri-jin away. When I think about it, I received so much from her but haven’t given her anything. Because of me, she is always nervous, always waiting for me, and always in tears. I rarely see her smiling brightly. One day…just for one day, please let me spend the whole day for her. I want to make her smile brightly. Because Oh Ri-jin was the first person who entered my empty, soulless castle. She was the first person to hold out her hands to me, to see the different eyes of mine, to ask for my name, to wait for my return nervously, to give me the warmest snowman in the world to me as a gift, to give me words of comfort, and to give me happiness just from looking at her. Hence, I am going to live the rest of my life trying to atone for my sins, living as the person inflicting the wounds on her.
Do-hyun asked Ri-jin to go for a Snow Flower Train ride together on the next day, since they didn’t get to keep their promise before. Ri-jin readily agreed and jumped around excitedly like a little girl heading to a theme park. He recalled his words to Ri-on after making his request.
Do-hyun: One day, when some time has passed by and Oh Ri-jin has forgotten everything about me..or when she doesn’t hold any emotion as she recalls the memories she has about me; if she happens to be in pain when the painful past haunts her, please convey these words to her. “You did nothing wrong. It wasn’t because you didn’t have the right to receive love that you were abused; you have every right to receive all the love, and as much as you deserve the love, you deserve to be the most dazzling, twinkling, brightest, and the loveliest person. So forget it all, and be someone that will receive all the love in the world.
[END of Episode 15]
If words can describe the state of my heart right now, it’s not to much to say that it’s like a lump of minced meat. I don’t know how many liters of tears I shed this morning (and I had to drink lots of water since my head was spinning) but that can’t be compared to Do-hyun’s state of heart in this episode, right?
Can this be categorized as a noble idiocy, or will it give birth to another term known as noble wisdom? It sure looks like a wise move from Do-hyun’s point of view, because he’s thinking that Ri-jin will only continue to suffer if she stays beside him, and she will be forced to face the painful memories of her past. He sees himself as the trigger to Ri-jin’s memories, just like how she is to him, and he’s willing to keep it all to himself as long as his lady can continue to live happily ever after. Is that really a wise decision for him to make at this point?
I have a feeling that he will try to leave on his own even without Ri-on’s request, because he’s already trying to let go of the past on the rooftop, and he will eventually sacrifice his own happiness when he feels that he’s threatening her stable life. With Ri-on’s request, he finds a more solid ground for him to justify his action. I don’t blame Ri-on this time, because he is acting like a true brother to Ri-jin. Who will stand by and do nothing when the perfect life of our family is about to be taken away? That is a common reflex, but he realizes (and acknowledges) how painful it is for Do-hyun.
Everyone is trying to be a knight on their own to protect each other, yet they only manage to hurt each other unintentionally. No one is to be blamed; at least not among Do-hyun, Ri-jin, and Ri-on, but like what Chairman Seo said: no one knows who is the person to be blamed for in the whole problem. Was is Seungjin? Or was it Min Seo-yeon? Or was it Chairman Seo? Or Jun-pyo? We can only wait, but those people might have an inkling on who the true culprit behind the problem, the conspiracy, and the secret.
As much as both Ri-on and Do-hyun are trying to protect her, Ri-jin herself knows what she wants to do, and she has stated that it feels like the time has arrived for her to face her nightmares. I wish that she will get to explain and persuade those guys that she’s ready for it, no matter how painful it is. True, she doesn’t realize how ugly it was; the memories she thought to be beautiful, but there’s no turning back right now. We can only wish that she can forget everything she has remembered so far, even if there are only bits and pieces to the big (ugly, nasty) picture of her past, but human’s curiosity will never stop. Ri-jin herself will find the forgotten memories, unless she herself decides to lock away the past again. She trusts herself, and I hope that the people around her will provide her with the support she needs. Who knows, the sweet memories Ri-jin had with Do-hyun in the past, combined with the love she received both in the past and in the present, will turn her into a brighter, shinier, and stronger person than she has ever been.
Just because…I love this shot.
[+] Since I’ve been trying to distract myself from thinking about the drama but to no avail, I might just as well give it a deep thought..and here’s more of my take on the episode.
Gestures are being used a lot in this drama, and those featured in episode 15 are very poignant, in my opinion. The touches, the stares, and even the littlest actions by the characters convey their emotions, sometimes even more effective compared to words. One of the scenes that grabbed my attention earlier was when Do-hyun was first brought to Seungjin mansion by his father, Jun-pyo. The little boy held tight to his father’s hand, unwolling to let go of the only support he had in the unfamiliar place he was at that time. He seemed to rely on his father, and Jun-pyo himself made the decision to return to his family because of Do-hyun. Perhaps, he was initially a caring father, but what happened between him and Seo-yeon afterwards was too much for him to endure, and he gave in to his inner monster, lashing out his anger on the closest person to Seo-yeon, that was little Ri-jin. The stern father we saw in Do-hyun’s memory earlier was probably the wounded Jun-pyo, who felt that Do-hyun had to be better than anyone else, so that the kid won’t end up as him. He might have seen Do-hyun as his only hope to get over his broken heart because of Seo-yeon, and the best thing for him to do was to groom Do-hyun into the man he didn’t get to be.
Jun-pyo’s great expectations placed upon Do-hyun were affected when his son turned out to be close with the last person he wanted to see: the proof of his failed love, the thorn in his eyes that was Ri-jin. The little girl was probably locked in the basement once Seo-yeon left for the overseas, as the flashback of Mama Ji suggested. Jun-pyo did it, Chairman Seo turned a blind eye on it, and Madam Shin didn’t do anything to stop it, because pushing Ri-jin out of the picture meant good opportunity for Do-hyun’s future. The last thing Jun-pyo wanted Do-hyun to do was to forge a connection with Ri-jin, but he happened to find out about their friendship and Do-hyun’s frequent visits to the basement. Thus, he made use of their friendship to have Do-hyun’s obedience, in the cruelest way possible…that was to turn Ri-jin into Do-hyun’s human talisman. Each time Do-hyun made a mistake, Ri-jin would be the one receiving the hits in his stead, taking in the torture in Do-hyun’s place. Even if Jun-pyo’s intention was to raise Do-hyun into a stronger man, his method was wrong, and he had actually inflicted deep wounds in the hearts of both Ri-jin and Do-hyun.
When Do-hyun went to rescue Ri-jin, he was probably thinking that he could sacrifice himself, if that’s what it takes for him to save her from harm, even for that one time. Getting himself beaten into a pulp was nothing to him, because he was well aware that Ri-jin suffered worse things than him in the past. He wanted to become her human talisman this once, taking in the beatings that might be directed at her: ten times, or even hundred times, because nothing will be enough for him to compensate for the horrifying experience she had because of him.
Madam Shin was really something, and only God knows to what extent she will go to make Seungjin fall into Do-hyun’s hands. Is it for his sake, or is it her own greed to make up for the humiliation she received all her life with Seungjin? Is her greed exceed her love for her son, or does she view wealth as her own way of showing her affection towards Do-hyun? Do-hyun’s expressions said it all; he was disappointed, angry, and sad to see his mother acting like that, and he even refused her touch. Was he wondering about his mother’s sincerity at that moment? Still, he was able to get hold of his emotions and prevent himself from hiding in the room inside him, facing her with an ultimatum, that was to leave with him or to see his future being destroyed forever.
Looking back at Do-hyun’s alters, I see them as tenants renting the rooms inside Do-hyun’s heart. They know about the landlord (Do-hyun) and they seem to be aware of his problems, but they only take what they are given and live their roles separately, as if they’re just normal neighbours. Except that they aren’t really normal, since they’re given the chance to occupy Do-hyun’s body when he’s having a hard time. Although Do-hyun was the one who ‘gave birth’ to them through his effort to protect himself, it is still amazing how he managed to specify each and every alter’s role, even without he himself realizing about it. Se-gi as the protector and the memory vessel; Yo-na as the unpredictable troublemaker to distract himself from the torturous moments; Yo-sub who always choose death as the way out from those moments; and Nana as his own version of Ri-jin he made in his head. Ferry is still a mysterious alter: he always comes out when Do-hyun is excited, and I can’t help but to bring back one of my predictions about him. Was he an image of Jun-pyo that Do-hyun created himself? Or perhaps..was Jun-pyo living like Ferry prior to the father-son going back to Seungjin: fooling around and drinking to no end while wishing to be able to do something significant in his life? I wish we can get more insights behind each alter’s existence, but we are running out of time.
We have yet to see the last alter: the mysterious Mr. X, whose details are still kept secret from us. Who is this refined gentleman? Now that I think of it, Do-hyun has never been pushed to the brink with his memories intact; he has been pushed to his limits when his memories were not there, but he had never experienced extreme whirlwind of emotions while being aware of the whole situation. I predict that X will be Do-hyun’s last resort to deal with the people who destroyed his childhood, not to mention Ri-jin’s, and he might be produced out of Do-hyun’s desire to take care of everything. The other alters seem to be dormant for a while up to this while, and now that Do-hyun has found his lost memories, he doesn’t have to run away from those memories and hide behind his alters. But then, it’s worth anticipating how Do-hyun+memories will face the greedy members of Seungjin, and if it will involve Mr. X, then it will be more interesting.
I don’t see Ki-joon and Do-hyun joining hands for the time being but I can get behind Ri-on and Chae-yeon’s pairing. Uh-hum~ But first, let us see Do-hyun and Ri-jin until the end first, living the rest of their lives together, happily…and with lots of bouncing babies. After making us shed buckets of tears (and more to come tonight), it’s only fair that we’re given such ending, so that we can see them building a loving family of their own.
Thank you for the comments, everyone 🙂 You know all of you mean a lot to me, right? Let’s survive together and watch this drama until the end! Group hug is always available over here~
