Legend that the Blue Sea: illustration 10by javabeans
Big episode! It’s acquired my favorite new thing, Drunk Joon-jae, and also his cousin moral Joon-jae, both of whom are type of inept and also adorable. Additionally gratifying come watch, because sometimes you simply need come hear the apparent stated. It’s specifically refreshing to have actually truths come out just when secrets were threatening to dominate and also turn the story on its head.
EPISODE 10 RECAP
Joon-jae comes face-to-face with the centuries-old portrait the Dam-ryung, and recognizes the words written there—they’re the exact same words the Dam-ryung said him as soon as they met in a dream: “If you room me in the following life, also when you wake up from the dream, remember this: whatever is repeating. The relations made right here are continuing there, as space the ill-fated connections. Safeguard her from the attention ones.”
As Joon-jae reads the words, we watch Dam-ryung, in Joseon, composing them down. Dam-ryung sends out the painting in a chest to his family’s house with the request to bury it there, and also to keep it unopened also if something to be to occur to him.
Joon-jae addresses the portrait as believed it’s Dam-ryung himself, wondering around the danger person and also the mrs he mentioned. “Who room you?” the asks. “Are girlfriend really… me? not a dream, but really me?”
Shi-ah bangs on the door, and also when he measures out that the room, she take away his arm and also whines around being scared of the blackout—right together the lights flick on. Muahaha. Joon-jae pushes she off, then tries to protect against her from going in to take it a look at the painting herself, saying the it’s late and also they ought to gain going.
She’s crawl to take it a look at this “Joseon man who’s together handsome together an idol,” though, and beelines for the painting. Her jaw drops together she immediately recognizes Joon-jae’s face, despite he feigns ignorance as soon as she points out the same (“What, choose everyone with big eyes and good looks resembles me?”) Pretending he doesn’t really check out it, he just says he’s better-looking.
She can’t allow it go of the uncanny resemblance, though, and also suggests that perhaps Dam-ryung is his ancestor, and that Joon-jae’s attention in the man was unconsciously stirred by his genetics.
Joon-jae transforms the subject by questioning her to store this visit a secret, saying the he’s researching something and also would choose for just her come know around it. Flattered, she agrees.
The weather is stormy, and throughout town, a loud crash that thunder wakes murderer Dae-young. Feather haggard, he wonders why he’s dreaming these dreams, muttering the they do him feel rotten. Fine I should hope so, if you’re dreaming around all the rotten points you’ve done.
Chung waits up because that Joon-jae, bothered by exactly how late he’s continuing to be out with Shi-ah. The minute she hears noise below, she nearly jumps under the ladder and also confronts Joon-jae, reminding the of their residence curfew and also his very own words to not bother coming home if she was going to hurt it.
Joon-jae laughs that the curfew only applies to his squatters, no the owner the the house, and also that if she feeling wronged by it, she can buy a house and also make increase her very own rules. He flops top top bed and relaxes right into it… and also then transforms his head to view Chung shoot eye-daggers in ~ him.
Joon-jae tells she to protect against glaring in ~ him choose a scary ghost, and Chung retorts the they’re her eyes and also she can do whatever she likes v them: “They’re mine rules. If I’m mad however have nothing come say, i glare.” the asks why she intends to just keep staring, and also she fires back, “Because as much as i couldn’t watch you before, I want to view you now!”
Aw. He simply tells she to perform as she wishes, warning the she’ll do herself dizzy. Chung squints and rolls her eyes experimentally.
A thought strikes him, and also Joon-jae asks around the time Chung was hit through a car and had a dream while lying in the emergency room. She’d claimed then that he took she hand and saved her life, and he asks because that details.
Chung’s psychic replays that vision—the minute that Se-hwa and Dam-ryung had clasped hand after he’d had her released right into the sea. Joon-jae tries come prod her memory, asking about the time period and even if it is he’d been wearing old-fashioned clothes.
But Chung states that she doesn’t mental anything, likely since she can’t explain the mermaid context. Joon-jae accepts that disappointedly and tells she to go to bed, and Chung leaves in a flash, glad at the reprieve.
She goes so rapid that Joon-jae feels placed out, grumbling around how she’d just claimed that she’d stare at him all night. “She spits out words without any kind of sense that responsibility!” he complains.
Safely in her room, Chung feels her pounding heart, noting, “This is what it feels like to lie.” Still, she’s relieved that he didn’t hear her “real voice,” together in she mermaid thoughts.
Joon-jae desires again the night: that Se-hwa kidnapped and bound, sitting v a basket the pearls, and Dam-ryung apologizing because that coming also late. He wakes through a start and also heads the end to the kitchen, where he finds Nam-doo having actually a midnight beer or five. Joon-jae joins him and sighs around how he’s been feeling strange lately, and Nam-doo asks, “Do you know what you must think of as the strangest? Chung. Don’t friend think she’s strange?”
Joon-jae laughs it off, but Nam-doo tells him no to brush that aside—she might be beautiful and sweet, however she’s certainly strange. Nam-doo confides the he’d had one more doctor look at Chung’s foot X-rays, that was sure that the broken bone that should have actually taken six weeks come heal was perfect in one. Nam-doo points the end that Joon-jae would normally discover it weird too, if not for the impact Chung has on him.
Then Nam-doo holds increase the pearl he’d swiped from Chung’s stash, asking exactly how a girl with no task or an abilities could amass so plenty of to sell. Joon-jae’s mind flicker to the dream he just had, and also Se-hwa’s pearls.
Nam-doo adds that Joon-jae can’t remember conference Chung in Spain, and also Joon-jae’s mind flicker to more scenes that can’t place—him to buy Chung shoes, acquisition the jade bracelet. Nam-doo reminds Joon-jae the he was keeping Chung roughly to discover out what happened, but he seems to have lost interest.
Joon-jae asks why Nam-doo is curious about all that. Nam-doo replies in his half-joking tone, “I’m afraid you’ll become a an excellent guy, when I simply barely turn you into a poor one v some use. After meeting Chung, you keep wanting to be a kind guy and it bothers me. If you do, you’ll leaving me.”
Joon-jae scoffs at that, while Nam-doo adds the it’s a fun an enig that he’s will on unraveling. Nam-doo leaves, and also Joon-jae states with part determination the he’ll need to be the an initial to find out that Chung is.
At the police station, Detective Hong gift his boss with a brand-new theory around Dae-young. Looking in ~ his prison document reveals mostly attack charges, springing indigenous anger administration problems, however there’s one year (1988) when he involved in a rash of robberies—and just at one to buy mall. His guess is a mrs was the cause.
Convenient reduced to Stepmom, who notices Chairman Dad struggling to understand food in his chopsticks, lacking because that his eyesight. He complains that dizziness, and also Stepmom hands him his pills (don’t take it them!) and urges the to rest today and leave anything crucial to her (nooooo) and his secretary. Chi-hyun doesn’t voice his concerns, though he plainly has them.
Chung’s young girlfriend Yoo-na find breakfast pre-made for her, she hard-working mom currently out because that the day. Yoo-na reads Mom’s note about going come academy today, spring sad.
Chung returns to the claw an equipment to insurance claim her pink octopus, and fails however again. Yoo-na finds her here and also asks why she is so intent to win that particular toy.
Chung wonders why she’s here, and Yoo-na admits that she play hooky today; she didn’t have everywhere to go, but remembered the Chung claimed she resided in this neighborhood.
Chung asks just how Yoo-na knew she had actually to get that pink octopus, and Yoo-na replies, “You stated it.” Chung is confused, due to the fact that that wasn’t a voice Yoo-na could hear, however Yoo-na states she heard Chung psyching it s her up all the method down the street.
Joon-jae comes up to Chung’s room, yet finds that empty. Spotting the jug of pearls by her bed, that wonders whereby they came from, and additionally why she intended to market them to provide that money to him—he’d never asked she for any.
Nam-doo provides a phone call to cheat target Jin-joo to save her ~ above the hook, saying that his boss is fairly busy and that she shouldn’t gain her really hopes up, but that he’ll store trying to acquire her one opening.
Mid-call, Joon-jae come tearing out of his room and also running indigenous room to room, in search of something (or someone), though when Nam-doo asks if he’s trying to find Chung, Joon-jae pretends he’s looking for Tae-oh. Who, by the way, is ideal there. (Nam-doo: “Are friend a actual con artist or not? Why space you so poor at lying?”)
Chung arrives through Yoo-na in tow, and Joon-jae runs over to scold her for not maintaining her dead phone call “fed,” appeal to her love that food to make it sound like her phone it s okay sad and also hungry. That course, precocious Yoo-na actions up to exactly his misuse of words, hee.
Joon-jae asks why Chung has actually such weird friends, from a beggar come a grade-schooler, and also Yoo-na replies, “Ajusshi, you’re unemployed.” Pert little thing.
Joon-jae blusters, acquisition offense come unemployed and ajusshi, saying that she’s wrong on both scores. Yoo-na claims plainly the “unemployed slacker” is apt once referring come someone who sits at residence doing nothing if normal world are in ~ work, or lying roughly watching TV (like Nam-doo) or playing games (Tae-oh).
Chung asks, wide-eyed, “Are friend an unemployed slacker?” Joon-jae protests, a little bit lamely, and also avoids she eye together he replies the he’s a freelancer, and it’s entirely possible to occupational from home.
Chung agrees, and also uses Joon-jae’s native to explain to Yoo-na the he’s functioning “even harder than a civil servant” on behalf of the nation. She speak the girl to grow up and be like Joon-jae.
Joon-jae actually blurts, “You can’t!” to cover the slip, that adds, “Do girlfriend think simply anyone can be choose me?”
Nam-doo wonders if the small girl is top top winter holidays already, and Joon-jae states (with way more shock than you’d think is appropriate for a con artist), “You’re playing HOOKY?”
The adults sit Yoo-na down, and also Joon-jae insists that she needs to keep going to school, also though Nam-doo reminds him that he dropped the end (and later gained his equivalency). Chung asks if those girls are bullying she again, but Yoo-na defines that her reason for ditching institution is because she “gains superpowers” in ~ school, which renders Nam-doo burst out laughing.
Yoo-na describes how she i do not care invisible, and nobody sees she or speak to her. That’s why it’s okay if she doesn’t go, and also nobody will notification anyway. Joon-jae eyes her sympathetically together she claims she’s different from the various other kids, based upon where she lives and also how she only has actually a mom. “Don’t world dislike world who are various from them?”
Chung think to herself, I’m various too. If he finds out I’m different, Heo Joon-jae will certainly hate me, won’t he? Joon-jae looks over at her—omo omo, can he hear? the looks surprised as soon as she thinks, He’ll leave, won’t he?
Yoo-na asks, no realizing that Chung didn’t speak it the end loud, “Why room you different, unni? and also why would the ajusshi Heo Joon-jae dislike you if you’re different?” Joon-jae’s mouth drops in shock.
To the others, it sounds prefer Yoo-na spoke out of nowhere, and neither Nam-doo nor Tae-oh heard Chung to speak anything. They figure Yoo-na imagine things, and Chung nervously bring away Yoo-na’s hand and takes her to she room.
Bewildered, Joon-jae confirms with the boys that the didn’t hear Chung speak those words, climate lies that he didn’t hear anything either.
Chung sit Yoo-na down to check whether she have the right to hear she thoughts. Yoo-na parrots back Chung’s thoughts exactly: She came below from a faraway place, and also feels lonely due to the fact that she came for one man and left everything else.
Chung tells her no to call anyone, due to the fact that she can’t have Joon-jae disliking she for being different. Yoo-na promises.
Joon-jae hears that Manager Nam has actually woken up, and rushes come the hospital to check out him. He can’t relocate or speak, but Joon-jae assures the mam that he’ll acquire better. It appears that Ajusshi can hear and think, though, and his eyes fine up with tears, do his wife intend that he desires to phone call Joon-jae something.
Ajusshi’s mam sees Joon-jae out, and also asks hesitantly if he’s had news of his mother. It turns out that Joon-jae’s mother has referred to as Ajusshi sometimes in the past, however had asked she to store it a secret. Ajusshi’s mam doesn’t have actually much information around Mom’s whereabouts, and says the all mommy did to be ask ~ Joon-jae. The wife had assured she he was fine, leaving the end the component where he’d left his family.
Later the night, Joon-jae registered nurses a beer in his room, and when Chung pokes her head out of her door, he tells her no to come down. “Okay,” she agrees, while climbing under the ladder. Hehe.
She join him in his room and recognizes alcohol from all her drama-watching, noting that it makes human being laugh and also cry and sprawl the end on sidewalks. Joon-jae states that’s what Nam-doo it s okay like, putting on the aegyo and also drunk-dialing exes and insisting he’s not drunk, which has actually earned himself the nickname of Dog Nam-doo. Joon-jae says that Nam-doo never learned how to drink properly, and also boasts the he’s not prefer that—he’s disciplined sufficient to reap drinking while managing himself. Oh, we’ll see around that.
Chung asks Joon-jae to teach her just how to drink, and that doesn’t seem like a bad idea therefore he sits her down and also pours her a beer. She’s chugging it down before he also starts with any kind of tips, and also he tells she she’s doing the wrong: drink is around the cheers. The clinks her glass through his.
Chung proceeds to inquiry cheers ~ cheers till she’s resting her head in she hand and also asking her octopus jerky plaintively why it’s so dried. “People space so cruel,” she wails. “How might they grill you, tear you apart, and dry you out? It’s therefore pitiful!”
Joon-jae points out that she’s crazy around sashimi, yet Chung counters, “They’re different! come me, octopus are prefer dogs space to you humans!” Joon-jae asks, “You humans? Aren’t you a human too?”
Chung replies, “Nope. I’m a mer…” and also then she stops, blinks, and is perfectly sober again. Joon-jae’s amazing at her sudden recovery, while Chung is eager to clink glasses again.
A couple of drinks later, it’s Joon-jae who’s tipsy—he sounds totally normal, however doesn’t establish he’s repeating the same speech around how he’s maybe to control his drink perfectly, and how she’s happy he’s the one teaching her, because he’s maybe to control his drink perfectly, which is why she’s happy he’s to teach her. And on and also on.
Pretty soon, his head is tilting and also he’s laughing because that no reason. He points his finger all approximately the room prefer they’re at a bar and also declares that nobody’s going residence tonight. Chung points the end that they’re currently at home, yet he just points at her and sing-songs, “Especially you. Friend can’t go. Don’t go.”
He addresses Chung as he choose up his phone and complains, “I told she clearly, if she’s not at home, she needs to stay by my side. Yet she doesn’t listen.”
He calls, and also Chung’s phone rings across the room. Yet when she gets up to answer it, the orders she to remain put—and climate complains when Chung doesn’t answer she phone. Omg, he’s adorable. Dork Joon-jae, relocate aside, Drunk Joon-jae is my brand-new favorite!
Joon-jae calls again, and also Chung tries come sneak away to answer it, just to have actually him order she to freeze. He gives up on the call and also moves to take it the seat next to her—and then he pulls she close in a large hug, exclaiming, “You can’t go!” She assures him the she won’t, and also decides the alcohol is the ideal thing on land.
Still holding she close, Joon-jae mumbles sleepily, “Don’t go. Also if we’re different—no matter how different we are, ns won’t leaving you.” He falls asleep on she shoulder, and also Chung says, “I hope that’s no a lie. I want that to it is in the truth.”
In the morning, he’s giant hungover. Chung defines to Nam-doo that he was to teach her just how to drink because that the very first time. Nam-doo states he could have taught her, and when Chung reminds him of his Dog Nam-doo drunk habits, he says that Joon-jae learned come drink native him. Hee.
Chung asks if words spoken while drunk space lies or truth, and Nam-doo claims it could be either—but in Joon-jae’s case, it’s every lies, and she should just think of that conversation together “talking come a puppy—all nonsense.” Aw. She takes that in disappointedly.
Time because that the following step in the Jin-joo con, as she takes in her dog 500 to settle his wagging tail, i beg your pardon Jin-joo swears is a authorize of some problem since the dog is too “chic” (“Like me”) come wag it the end of sheer happiness. Man lady is ridiculous.
Jin-joo exclusive right up once Nam-doo fall by with 900 and asks if he’s made any kind of headway into getting her a meeting through his CEO Kim. Nam-doo plot apologetic in his rebuff, saying the CEO Kim is booked solid because that every meal. Jin-joo pouts and also wheedles, and also hands Nam-doo a gift that handmade doggie kibble, questioning for an excellent news next time.
Hearing the update, Shi-ah repeats her belief that it’s a scam, despite Jin-joo argues that no cheat artist would certainly play this difficult to get. Joon-jae’s mom interrupts the conversation to do a request the Shi-ah separate her laundry to make her job a bit easier, and Shi-ah paris off the handle, mentioning that she’s higher-ranked in this household. “Are you my mother-in-law?” she exclaims.
Joon-jae’s mother just says in her placid means that she agrees with that sentiment—she doesn’t desire to it is in Shi-ah’s mother-in-law. Heh. I love she retorts. Shi-ah whines at Jin-joo come fire her, but Jin-joo can’t until after she’s hosted the well-off CEO come dinner.
Then Nam-doo calls with the good news she’s been dying to hear, and schedules that dinner. The next day, Jin-joo’s every aflutter with excitement together she decides what to wear, and also Joon-jae’s mommy hilariously offers her backhanded advice (“Don’t friend think the looks shabby? however wear it if you choose it”).
Jin-joo grouses around how she ends up law what the housekeeper says, but has to admit she’s never ever wrong, which renders it extra annoying. Nam-doo calls Jin-joo to provide her “tips” on how to act around the CEO, feeding she nervousness to impress.
Jin-joo’s husband Dong-shik admits come misgivings around Shi-ah’s comment that it’s a scam, yet Jin-joo insists the Shi-ah to know nothing of the actual world. She advises him no to asking too countless questions or appear old-fashioned, and also Dong-shik assures her that he won’t pry for details to the man’s face; he’ll perform it behind his back.
Joon-jae and Chung gain dressed come the nines and also head over, and Joon-jae reminds Chung because that the umpteenth time that she can’t use his real name. Nam-doo glosses it over as just a part of law business.
Jin-joo, Dong-shik, and daughter Elizabeth greet the guest at the gate, ~ above their ideal behavior. Jin-joo pours top top the pleasantries in an effort to appeal to Chung, offered how they clashed last time end Elizabeth fighting v Yoo-na. Chung tells the small girl come be good to Yoo-na, while Jin-joo falls anywhere herself kissing as much as Chung.
And then, Shi-ah arrives home. Aieeee!
But in ~ the last second, Jin-joo sends out Shi-ah to the keep to choose up a last-minute item. Oh you’re walking to drag this out until I’m a concerned wreck, room you? well then. An obstacle accepted.
The guys exchange service cards, and Dong-shik sneaks off to check that it’s legit, call the Tokyo-based office. He’s significantly relieved to hear that the CEO is in Korea, despite not too bright not to take into consideration that the number is fake to start with—it’s just Tae-oh on the various other line, after ~ all.
Jin-joo fusses end the food made by the housekeeper, confident the sincere home-cooking will appeal come the CEO. The team makes small talk, such as CEO Kim’s marital relationship plans, and also Joon-jae says they’ll tie the node abroad next year. When Chung doesn’t reply, she go look in ~ Joon-jae uncertainly, maybe also dubiously.
When Joon-jae bites right into one dish, he’s hit v recognition and compliments it, saying the it’s similar to a food his mommy used to make. Jin-joo’s thrilled to hear it and calls because that more, which bring Joon-jae’s mom out. She doesn’t view Joon-jae’s face, though, and also he doesn’t watch hers either. But he does pause at the sound of her voice, transforming to catch a glimpse of she back.
Shi-ah traction up in front of the house, and Tae-oh establish her with alarm. Ns can’t think you functioned on this con because that so long and didn’t realize this was her family, you dolts. The jumps out and intercepts Shi-ah at the gate, and thinks fast to describe why he’s here and also why he requirements to talk to her.
She claims she has essential guests over and also starts come head inside, therefore Tae-oh grabs she by the shoulder and blurts, “I love you, noona!” LOL.
That, in ~ least, calls because that a an ext serious talk, so they relocate to a cafe, wherein Tae-oh keeps his head hanging waaaaay under in mortification. She entirely buys the story, and sighs in ~ the dilemma due to the fact that Tae-oh knows just how she feels about Joon-jae. She speak him that there’s no crime in loving, and clucks over exactly how thin his face has become due come his supposed lovesickness.
She asks if she have the right to leave now, and also he shakes his head frantically. She sighs at how awful this is, once she only has actually eyes for Joon-jae, feeling all sorts of gratified pity for Tae-oh’s to like on her. Meanwhile, Tae-oh sneaks off a message to Nam-doo, telling him to leaving quickly since it’s Shi-ah’s house.
Thankfully the VIP dinner is in the dessert-and-coffee stage, and also Nam-doo whispers the warning right into Joon-jae’s ear. They gain up immediately, citing a last-minute emergency, sending out Jin-joo right into a flurry the panicky questions about whether they walk anything wrong.
Joon-jae manages to gain out the the home moments prior to Shi-ah traction up, thankfully. Tempers room high when they obtain home, and also Joon-jae yells at Nam-doo for not doing his research properly.
All the while, Chung has actually been quietly taking everything in, and also when Nam-doo states they practically got caught, she picks up top top that and also asks what they almost got captured for, and also why it would have actually been trouble. Joon-jae won’t meet her eye.
She thinks, Heo Joon-jae, are you a con artist? are you a poor guy?
Joon-jae hears it, and his head swivels in her direction. He thinks of her previously thought the he would hate she if the knew how she was different. Chung asks, Was it all a lie?
“Yes,” Joon-jae declares aloud. “I’m someone who lies. Ns deceive others and also earn money. Yes, I’m that kind of person. That’s my secret. What’s yours?”
They stand there with eyes locked, skipping a puzzled Nam-doo in the background, and also Chung thinks, My mystery is… that I’m various from you. That I’m a mermaid.

The shock access time Joon-jae, who thinks the the drawing on the vase of the mermaid kissing a man, and of seeing mermaid Chung in the aquarium tank. If you know who i am, you’ll be shocked and hurt and scared that me, Chung continues. You’ll leave me. So I want to execute my best and also not be uncovered out. Wait, does she no realize the heard her?
Chung heads right into her room, and also Joon-jae make the efforts to get all his whirling thoughts in order. The checks with Nam-doo about what he simply said, but Nam-doo states they were just staring in ~ each various other silently. Wait, to be his confession in his head?
Chung stares at she jar the pearls—it’s fuller now—and clutches at she heart. Joon-jae stares at the photo on Dam-ryung’s vase, listening Chung’s confession repeat in his head, and also recalling how he felt favor he was the man in the picture.
Suddenly he’s fight with one more memory fragment: sinking in the sea, someone swimming towards him, that kiss.
Joon-jae goes up to Chung’s loft, worried as soon as he find it empty. That hurries out of the house, mental Dam-ryung’s warning of danger and also the risk of Dae-young ~ above the loose. As he sets the end to in search of her, the sees visions indigenous Dam-ryung’s life, v his encounters through Se-hwa mingling with his own with Chung.
He breaks right into a run as his head floods with an ext visions—Dam-ryung and Se-hwa’s handclasp, and the story of just how a young boy dropped in love with a mermaid and heard she voice. And how mermaids have a special capacity to erase themselves from a human’s memory v a kiss.
Memories indigenous Spain come back, pour it until it is full in much more blanks of how they met and grew close and also fell into the s together.
Suddenly, his amendment memories change—where Chung had erased herself, now his mental puts her back and his memories go back to their original versions. The critical one to pertained to him is the underwater kiss, and also Chung saying, “I love you.”
Out that breath and reeling in shock, Joon-jae was standing in the middle of the road, grappling v the truth.
What, no epilogue? Aw, come on! because that a display I favored less, I can not care, but I frequently want much more at the end of these episodes, and also the epilogues feel favor I gain to steal a tiny extra story because that myself.
I’m pleasantly surprised that we have the fact out already—I recognize Joon-jae’s been having niggling feelings and memory flashes every along, however I assumed they’d draw it the end longer and am happy to have the realization made now. Currently that that knows, our story can’t aid but take a turn, and also as much fun together it is to clock Joon-jae dancing around his feelings, it’s an ext exciting to have actually him watch the full photo now.
In the variation of this story that ends in ~ “mermaid falls in love through human,” I’d issue that us don’t have enough story to take us v the remaining episode count, due to the fact that the question of even if it is the human being will expropriate the mermaid’s love is always that critical phase the the conflict. This isn’t that story, though, and also because we’re additionally in a mystery where a entirety other timeline is running at the same time with this one, and also where multiple stays are in ~ stake, that feels prefer we’re advancing to the next phase. Learning of her mermaid nature isn’t the finishing here; Joon-jae still has actually to number out what his alternate-life me is trying come tell him, if that alternative self has actually to figure out how to conserve his life making use of this portal to Joon-jae.
I absolutely loved Joon-jae gaining drunk and showing Chung how he really felt. It might be partially denial the keeps him from gift able to be an ext forthcoming as soon as he’s sober, but I think the rejection is ebbing away, and also his reluctance is an ext a basic discomfort v expressing himself, rooted in his childhood abandonment. In flashbacks it’s never seemed he had much trouble showing his love openly, however after relocating in v his father and stepfamily, that retreated right into himself and has been afraid to placed himself the end there, since what came ago was usually hurtful. For this reason Drunk Joon-jae, as well as being just plain hilarious, was a relief come see since it’s a relief to see him gift honest and just speak what that feels, in a means that recalls his more joy self.
I uncover it amazing that Chung, who’s never had trouble making her feelings known, is the one who’s closeup of the door off currently out of are afraid of rejection, just as Joon-jae’s comes to identify his. I can’t deny the I miss the boisterous, no-filter version of Chung, however I can’t blame her for gift protective, either. If just she knew the wasn’t necessary; ns was excited when he started to hear she inner voice—while us still don’t understand why Yoo-na can hear mermaid voices, she’s constantly been able come hear them, so i count that together something native to her being. Through Joon-jae, it have the right to only average that he’s totally in love with Chung now, mirroring the boy of the legends, and also as together I assumed it was a yes, really lovely method to obtain him to discover the truth: simply as she worries that he’d never be able to accept her, he involves love her enough to permit himself to discover the fact on his own.
