He finds her slumped in front of her friend’s restaurant, drunk. He sits down with her and supports her head with his shoulder. He lifts his hand, which hovers above hers and I, as a viewer, expect for sure that he is going hold her hand, even if it’s just for a brief moment, even if she’s unaware of his presence. But instead, he goes and does something even more heartbreaking.
He knows that she doesn’t love him and yet… he is hopeful. He hooks his fingers with hers in a pinky promise and asks her to take his hand when he holds it out to her.
Okay, I’ll confess that for a very brief moment, the punch thrown by Jin at the end of episode 10 did make me reconsider my opinion of the character and his pairing with Ae Jung. However, I quickly came to my senses and remembered all the sweet things that Pil Joo said and did for Ae Jung. And so, even though there are gonna be angst, tears, and heartache up ahead, it’s Pil-line all the way, baby! *stocks up on Kleenex tissues*
Pil Jooooooooo! I love youuuuuuuuu!
