And it's not like Han Gyul actually corrects him. There are political machinations in play at the entertainment company that will hurt her and her friends but at least we know she isn't completely street dumb. Oh, you adorable puppies, you. I envy So Rim's courage in how she is always unabashed at confessing her feelings to Han Gyul. The character development on HanGyeol in this episode is really commendable; somehow, Lee Hyun Woo managed to make this originally brooding character really adorkable. That aside, I felt bad for Chan young, when he told he was lonely and I can totally believe that the other crude play members would have treated him like that because of their loyalty to han gyul.
He asks to meet her and prepares a flash drive. She is such an underdog, feel-good story. Yes, but why does he care about So Rim's career? But as So-rim's producer, he should be doing what's best for her. This blossoming relationships with So Rim is innocent. She smiles and stands beside him to copy his actions until he notices her. That is probably very suffocating for him. He flashes back to the first time he heard Chan-young playing his part in the band.
Once they all reconvene backstage, So-rim apologizes to Jin-hyuk for losing. Then again with Chan Young immediately backing up once he realized how close they were in the empty auditorium. A The snooty classmate kinda worries me. I am also not condoning Chanyoung's actions, in any way, but still what is HanGyeol's difference? I've had time to write my thoughts beforehand, so long post ahead! To make matters worse, Jin-hyuk makes a snide comment that Chan-young should be happy to get a song from the Kang Han-gyul he so dearly admires. That poker-faced classmate though, I want to ship her somewhere very far because I smell something fishy about her, urgh! I think he also knew how she would be the type to keep her promises. And such a nice and straightforward guy, I love him.
But, like SailorJumun said, chan young has inferiority complex. He's got a huge problem with pride and insecurity, but that is his problem, not the rest of the world's. Even when he does something that seems supportive in one act, it's too easy for him to make a backroom deal in the next breath. The folder she throws at him even contains a testimony from the guitarist Han-gyul had fired from Sole Music. In-woo laughs and explains that he thought they were normal mushrooms that were going bad.
Yoona also had a V-live where she showed all the set of Sole Entertainment to us. Later, Shu Ren finds out that his mother died in a car accident eight years ago and starts to blame himself and questions his profession. Why is it that Second Leads have this pull on me no matter if they're the nice guy or the bad guy. Not because it is chan-young's but because it is her song! For the first time, he's able to have an independent project on his own. . I guess, because its not originally their music.
We joked around, played tennis together, ate lunch together, but I never felt like I belonged. I think like festerfaster said, he took her rejection of his song as rejection of him and he was hurt, so he lashed out and said things that he shouldn't have. Teacher Bong smiling like an idiot was me. I don't hate, hate him, but I can't be on his side either. Both of them think the other party is heavenly talented, and both also fail to see themselves as equally talented person.
Han-gyul literally skips home after dropping So-rim off, but before he can head inside, the Crude Play boys pull up in their van and kidnap him so they can have their own little party at their bar. And I loved Grandma leaving So Rim out on the foyer while she whined; you know that's not the first time it happened. If only he stopped to think that maybe Han-gyul is going through similar suffering. I'm not even sure we've had those a lot. I say, they're both flawed for Sorim, but both with individual strengths that the other doesn't have when dealing with Sorim.
There's only one way I confirm if a drama is badly written or not. He takes her hand and promises to be by her side anyway. I think he serves as a warning to Han Gyul of what his future could be--professionally successful but absent of friendship and love. So good to see that the show did this and also goes to show the good character of So Rim. Yet they still lost -- obvious proof the show was fixed. That was the last straw.
