Undeterred by low ratings this drama has continued to chart a true course towards honest falling in love between two people who are both brave and deserving of those syrupy happily ever after dreams in life. The events that string together the narrative in PM smells of the improbable and rings of the absurd if we were to pluck it out of context, but within the world of this drama all those things coalesce into a platform for Da Jung and Yul to naturally and sincerely fall in love.
My OTP finally says everything that is on their minds and bravely chooses each other without any artifice or caveats. I knew they would be the type of people who would be all in when they make up their hearts and minds and neither disappointed me in the least. This episode was so amazingly good with the OTP conversations it might stand the test of time on how to let two people struggling with love discuss things openly with each other without misunderstanding and a boatload of patience.
I love Yul and Da Jung so much, together and individually, and through their eyes and interactions I also have grown to care for the people around them. Joon Ki with his inferiority complex and misapplied anger towards Yul, Hye Joo with her devotion and fierce spirit, In Ho with his torn loyalties and misguided revenge, and Yoon Hee with her lack of love and support from her husband. Yul and Da Jung have treated everyone around them with such understanding and acceptance that it helps me see the supporting characters as less narrative plot device and more interesting folks in their own right.
