This week’s ghost is a runaway bride who supposedly disappeared after leaving her fiance at the altar. However, her chilling presence leads Si Ohn to discover parts of the woman’s body buried in the woods. More parts turn up at a construction site. Gruesome, no?
At first, we’re led to believe that her jilted fiance is responsible for her death and dismemberment, but eventually the horrid truth comes out.
Korean moms be getting all crazy when it comes to marrying off their sons. Especially if the daughter-in-law is poor. Getting really sick of this stereotypical impetus, but at least it was only for one episode, instant of a constant harping to create conflict throughout an entire series.
Anyone else get a little teary-eyed from the last scene?
On a side note, I really love how the set designer created a retro, androgynous environment for Si Ohn’s home. She’s been in a coma for 6 years so it makes sense that she’d still have a lot of items in boxes. Glad they didn’t clutter up her place with the cutesy stuffed animals that seem to be the norm for our age-averse leading ladies.
I was hesitant about Si Ohn being the noona in this relationship, but it definitely works and I don’t miss the innocent-wide eyed naivete that is regularly highlighted as a heroine’s charm. Si Ohn is mature, professional, and weary of the world. She takes care of Gun Woo, tolerating his tantrums and goofy outbursts as if he was a toddler. In return, he trails after her, looking up at her in a combination of awe and grudging respect.
I’m normally not a fan of the secondary plot line, but the romance between Officer Im Sung Chad and fortune teller Hee Bin, looks like a promising dash of comic relief. We’ll definitely need that because I foresee more death and violence in the rest of this series.
And the beginning of our man-woman-ghost love triangle! So far none of the spirits have been able to speak except in flashbacks. I really hope Jae Wook gets more lines!!
