She was pretty episodes 5 – 6 ~ review
The fifth and sixth episodes of “She was pretty”, could have an alternative title as, “The episodes I am officially discussed with Min Ha Ri”. The moment Hye Jin and Sung Joon are getting closer she comes between them with her lies and ruins everything. But let’s take one thing at a time.
The fifth episode doesn’t start in the best way for Kim Hye Jin, that has to hide in the closet so she can avoid Sung Joon. He finds her, but the thing is, she has heard the conversation Sung Joon had on the phone about “The Most” closing down. Sung Joon warns her that she should not speak about it. Do I feel, like in the next episodes somehow this will be known and that will lead to Sung Joon misunderstanding Hye Jin and loosing his trust in her? I hope not.
Hye Jin eats with Shin Hyuk and tells him about her secret of her first love. It’s funny how Shin Hyuk knows everybody’s secrets, but nobody knows his. What I like about Shin Hyuk is that unlike frustrating Min Ha RI, he is not annoying at all. He has the part of the second lead who is in love with the main female lead, but he is really discreet. Please writers, don’t change his cool character in the future episodes.
While they are together Sung Joon sees them and you can tell, jealously little by little is getting him. Before that in the office he was moved by Hye Jin, when she left food for him at his desk. In return he showed some care for her cut finger. The chaebol way of course. A chaebol never shows his feelings, he first says all the rude words in the world in your face, but in the end he takes care of your wound.
While Sung Joon is on his way to meet Min Ha Ri, who has finally decided to stop the cosplay by introducing Shin Hyuk as her future husband, he runs into a car accident. The rain and the accident reminds him of his mother and he gets a panick attack. Hye Jin is there to help him, at that moment he remembers the old times, Hye Jin had helped him with his panic attack, when they were young.
Min Ha Ri when she finds out, adriver is getting Sung Joon home, from disappearing shr decides to appear and cook for him. I can’t blame her on that because, Sung Joon is in a bad position. When he asks her what she wanted to tell him, she once again delays her answer.
Sung Joon is moved by Hye Jin and takes care of her cold. He even rides the bus, so she can sleep on his shoulder, while his car being taken away. How can not this be love? I like how his feeling are developing for the current Kim Hye Jin. The writers didn’t wait for the revelation. The things the young Sung Joon loved in Hye Jin, he can see them in her even though her appearance has changed, Hye Jin’s pure soul is still the same.
Being confused, Sung Joon calls his therapist. He gives him advice how to take care of his stress. When Sung Joon asks him, about his romantic feelings that keep getting mixed between, the girl he knew in the past and the girl that has come now in his life. The doctor says it’s the Zeigarnik Effect, he can’t let go of the past, because the things were not finished then, (look what someone learns from a drama, I surely have this effect too). He suggests, he should let go of the past and move on. Bless that therapist.
While Sung Joon is ready to follow his feeling for Kim Hye Jin, the one who is on his mind like the new person in his life. Min Ha RI after a conversation of Shin Hyuk, where of course she tells the thing from her side, she gets provoked by him to chase her love for Sung Joon. And there comes the part where I wanted to get in the screen and bit he, I’m against violence, but how can you still the part of the puzzle from your best friend?????? She steals the puzzle piece and shows it Sung Joon as her own. What a liar, at least other evil girls from kdramas know they are bitches. Not only she has the nerve to show it, she then pretends to be the victim feeling guilty and sleeping in the same bed with Hye Jin. Poor Hye Jin worries about her, when she asks her what is going on, she tells her she would tell her later. When is that “later” exactly she has being saying for 6 episodes now? Unless things make a huge turn, she has officially become one of my worst kdramas characters. Sung Joon gets the puzzle and being fooled he decides to throw away the onion that symbolizes his feeling for Kim Hye Jin.
What is Min Ha Ri’s plan, to keep pretending to be Kim Hye Jin? Even if she loves Sung Joon, she keeps deceiving him, does she think when he finds out he will forgive her? Does she expect from Kim Hye Jin to forgive her too? Does it really worth to lose such a great friend for someone? I’m really curious how the writers, are going to make the revelation.
For our shake in the next episode Hye Jin and Sung Joon are stuck with each other for the business travel. Can’t wait, what about you?
