EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! I am EXCITED!!!
Where we last left our heroes, In-ha found Yoon-hee in their old haunt, the university. They sit on the same bench In-ha painted Yoon-hee on all those years ago. He asks her, if she loses her eyesight, will she let him be her eyes?
A while later (again, I have no idea how much time passes) the four of them all have a picnic lunch at Ha-na’s. There’s an adorable scene where Joon gives Yoon-hee a bouquet of baby’s breath, her favorite flower, and Ha-na’s all, like, “Where’s mine?” Joon says he doesn’t know what her favorite flowers are, and plus, he normally doesn’t give flowers to girls. She’s all, like, “I bet.” Ha! XD Then he produces a small bouquet of random flowers from the garden at the cafe and gives it to her. Sweet!
Remember a couple episodes before, In-ha asked Joon to one day take pictures of the two? Well, he’s fulfilling that request right now.
Yoon-hee announces that she’s going to the States to visit her uncle before the surgery, which she’s postponing.
Later on that day, after In-ha has left, she overhears Ha-na and Joon talking about his leaving for New York. Seems he’s leaving soon. Well, since he’s going to the States, and so is Ha-na and her mom, can’t they meet up for something? ‘Course, they might be going somewhere far from New York… But it’s easier to go from state to state than country to country, right? I sure they could work something out! But the thought never crosses either of their minds. *sigh*
Next thing we know, Yoon-hee left for the States BY HERSELF. She left Ha-na only a note saying she was leaving, and was going to try and have the surgery done there. I’m actually quite relieved about that. I trust American medical technology more than Korean technology, to be honest. But that was kinda mean, not telling anyone. She did that before, way back when, in not telling In-ha that she was going to the States to treat her tuberculosis. In fact, she didn’t even TELL him about her TB at that time. Sheesh.
Later on, Joon goes and visits Dad in his studio. Joon gives him the pictures he took at the picnic, and In-ha gives him a painting. Ooh I can guess what goodies are on that canvas… I wanna see!!! But first… We get a confession from Joon.
Joon: “I’ve always hated you. Also… I’ve loved you, and I’ve missed you a lot.” AWWWWW! In-ha! Give the boy a hug! GIVE HIM A HUG, YOU IDIOT!!! But no, instead he holds out his hand for a handshake. Whaaaaaaa-? Come on!
But I guess that is enough for Joon, because we get to see an expression that he’s never had around his father before. And I guess it would be too presumptuous for a hug, since they’re only now starting to bond. Can’t hurry things, can we?
Joon takes the wrapped painting home to open it, and I’m literally stunned by what we see. It’s a painting of Joon and Ha-na, the night In-ha found out about their relationship. It’s such a beautiful painting! Complete with the expressions! My gawd, I’m dying. This is just plain sweet! In-ha! I love you! This also happens to be when they broke up, so it holds special meaning.
Doesn’t it look so lifelike?! Especially Joon…
Joon brings it over to Ha-na’s, where he tells her he’s decided not to go to New York, since she’ll be alone, since her mom left without her.
We fast forward a year, to find Ha-na coming back from the States. She’s more than a little displeased that Joon isn’t there to pick her up. Seems something happened between the two of them, because Joon’s not keen on picking her up, either.
Ha-na goes to Joon’s house, where Mom opens up. I’m all cringing inside, afraid of the confrontation that’s to come, when Hye-jung is CIVILIZED to Ha-na. *blinks* Huh? Waitwaitwait. O___O Drama, I’m loving you more and more by the second. Seems Hye-jung finally accepted that she wasn’t gonna split the two, and though she’s not all cushy with Ha-na like she was with Mi-ho, she treats her a whole lot better than before, even showing a bit of concern over Ha-na taking the bus all the way from the airport, and showing relief at the news that Yoon-hee’s surgery was a success.
When Joon comes, the bickering begins. Joon wants to eat out, but Ha-na insists on eating in. Hye-jung immediately catches on that they’ve had a fight. Lunch is strained, until Hye-jung finally asks, “What did you do wrong?” XD Heh, I’m liking Hye-jung more and more. Turns out that Ha-na stayed in America for 2 months, when she originally planned to stay only two weeks. Who wouldn’t be angry? Hye-jung scoffs and tells them to deal with it, calling them childish. I couldn’t agree more.
Back at the cafe, Ha-na arrives, grumbling over the fact that Joon had said he never wanted to break up again, but it’s already the fourth time, which Joon corrects, saying it’s the fifth time, after the one in the painting. Then he tells her to give him her excuses. XD Oh Joon, you’re such a child. After bickering like children for a bit, Joon adorably says that he missed her, which relaxes the atmosphere, and they’re back to being lovey-dovey. Kiss time!
Next day at the studio, we find out that Mi-ho is going to Paris, which is a surprise to everyone, since she didn’t tell anyone. I guess she’s given up on Joon by now, but she lets out some tears during the shoot. I think this is teh first time I’ve ever felt anything besides annoyance for Mi-ho. Because an unrequited crush is a hard thing to get over. I know; I went through a few myself. So this is the one thing I can sympathize with when it comes to Mi-ho. I’m glad that she’s matured in the last year. He tells her she was the best model, something she was always asking before, which I think is really sweet of him.
At some point Hye-jung calls the Kids over, saying she’s feeling sick. I find it funny how Ha-na rushes in, asking how Mom is feeling, whereas Joon just strolls in, not really caring at all. Mom notes this too, more than a little disgruntled. But what she says next has them both, and me, shocked. She asks if Ha-na’s still living in his studio, and that neighbors are asking if they’re living together. Ha-na says she’ll move out, but Hye-jung just tells them to get married instead.
Whaaaa- MOM is telling them to get married? Mom, who was vehemently opposed to them being together just a year ago? Hallelujah, it’s a miracle! Now they HAVE to get married! The person most opposed to them is telling them to! And I also wanna see them in all white… XP
Joon spends the next few days brooding. I hope he deciding how he’s gonna propose! Ha-na, meanwhile, meets Tae-sung. Apparently a friend is getting married. I think it’s the same guy from the first few episodes that they were with in Japan. Which is really funny. He’s getting married before either of them, which makes Tae-sung ruefully say he thought that they’d get married first.
A few nights later, Ha-na is woken up by a text from Joon, telling her to come down to the garden. Ooh, is this what I think it is? She comes down to find candles everywhere. Yesyesyes!!! She sits down with Joon on a bench and they watch a slideshow of pictures, mostly of her. He does commentary to it, saying things like, “Back then, I think I was already in love” and “The was a sad day for me, too.”
Finally, he says, “I want to see you change. I want to see us change. I want to watch together. What about you? Will you marry me?”
NYAAAAAWWWW!!!!! How sweet is that?! Ha-na nods, and they hug.
Later on, when Ha-na asks why he wanted to get married, when he’d said before that he’d never get married, he says that when she goes to America and he wants to visit her, it would be a flimsy excuse to say he missed his girlfriend and wanted to go see her, but it would be completely fine if he said he missed his wife and wanted to go see her. XD Heh. It’s all about the image, eh?
We fast forward to the wedding day, and we see Ha-na running to the cafe to… water the flowers. In her wedding dress. XD “Sorry honey, but the flowers are more important than us being on time to our own wedding.” Oh, Ha-na, you and your flowers.
They are just simply adorable! >.<
May I be the first to say that that hairstyle really doesn’t suit Geun-suk? He sports it often, but I really don’t like it all that much… Eh.
Well, I’m satisfied with the ending. It left me with a good feeling. And I can’t stop smiling! Dammit, they’re so cute!
And I’ll never get over this painting. It’s so well done, and has so much meaning! Compare with the actual image. Amazing…
