Big episode! It’s obtained my favorite brand-new thing, Drunk Joon-jae, and his cousin ethical Joon-jae, both of who are kind of inept and adorable. Additionally gratifying to watch, since sometimes you just need to hear the obvious stated. It’s particularly refreshing to have truths come out simply when secrets were threaten to dominate and turn the story ~ above its head.

EPISODE 10 RECAP

*
*

Joon-jae comes face-to-face through the centuries-old portrait that Dam-ryung, and recognizes the words composed there—they’re the same words that Dam-ryung told him as soon as they met in a dream: “If you space me in the next life, also when you wake up from the dream, remember this: everything is repeating. The relations made below are proceeding there, as are the ill-fated connections. Safeguard her native the attention ones.”

As Joon-jae reads the words, we view Dam-ryung, in Joseon, creating them down. Dam-ryung sends the painting in a chest come his family’s home with the inquiry to bury it there, and to store it unopened also if something were to occur to him.

Joon-jae addresses the portrait as assumed it’s Dam-ryung himself, wondering about the attention person and the mrs he mentioned. “Who are you?” that asks. “Are you really… me? no a dream, but really me?”

*

Shi-ah bangs top top the door, and also when he measures out the the room, she bring away his arm and also whines about being scared of the blackout—right together the lamp flick on. Muahaha. Joon-jae pushes her off, then tries to stop her indigenous going in to take a look at the painting herself, saying the it’s late and they chandelier to obtain going.

She’s keen to take it a look at this “Joseon man who’s together handsome together an idol,” though, and also beelines for the painting. Her jaw drops as she instantly recognizes Joon-jae’s face, despite he feigns ignorance as soon as she points the end the resemblance (“What, choose everyone with big eyes and an excellent looks resembles me?”) Pretending he doesn’t really view it, he just says he’s better-looking.

She can’t permit it go of the uncanny resemblance, though, and also suggests that perhaps Dam-ryung is his ancestor, and that Joon-jae’s interest in the man was unconsciously stirred by his genetics.

*

Joon-jae transforms the object by questioning her to keep 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 the thunder wakes murderer Dae-young. Feather haggard, he wonders why he’s dreaming this dreams, muttering the they do him feel rotten. Fine I should hope so, if you’re dreaming about all the rotten things you’ve done.

Chung waits up because that Joon-jae, bothered by just how late he’s remaining out with Shi-ah. The minute she hears noise below, she virtually jumps under the ladder and confronts Joon-jae, reminding him of their home curfew and his own words to no bother coming residence if she to be going to violate it.

*
*

Joon-jae laughs the the curfew only uses to his squatters, not the owner the the house, and also that if she feels wronged by it, she can buy a house and also make increase her very own rules. He flops ~ above bed and also relaxes into it… and then transforms his head to watch Chung shooting eye-daggers in ~ him.

Joon-jae tells her to stop glaring at him like a scary ghost, and Chung retorts the they’re her eyes and also she deserve to do every little thing she likes with them: “They’re my rules. If I’m mad however have nothing to say, i glare.” the asks why she intends to simply keep staring, and also she fires back, “Because as lot as i couldn’t watch you before, I desire to check out you now!”

Aw. He simply tells her to carry out as she wishes, warning that she’ll make herself dizzy. Chung squints and rolls her eyes experimentally.

*

A assumed strikes him, and Joon-jae asks around the time Chung was hit by a car and also had a dream while lying in the emergency room. She’d stated then that he took she hand and saved she life, and he asks for details.

Chung’s mental replays that vision—the minute that Se-hwa and Dam-ryung had actually clasped hand after he’d had her released right into the sea. Joon-jae tries to prod she memory, asking about the time duration and whether he’d been wearing old-fashioned clothes.

But Chung claims that she doesn’t remember anything, likely because she can’t describe the mermaid context. Joon-jae accepts the disappointedly and also tells she to walk to bed, and also Chung pipeline in a flash, glad in ~ the reprieve.

*
*

She walk so fast that Joon-jae feels put out, grumbling around how she’d just declared that she’d stare at him all night. “She spits the end words without any kind of sense the responsibility!” he complains.

Safely in she room, Chung feels her pounding heart, noting, “This is what that feels choose to lie.” Still, she’s relieved the he didn’t hear her “real voice,” as in she mermaid thoughts.

Joon-jae desires again that night: the Se-hwa kidnapped and also bound, sitting through a basket that pearls, and also Dam-ryung apologizing because that coming also late. He wakes through a start and heads out 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 also Nam-doo asks, “Do you know what you need to think of together the strangest? Chung. Don’t friend think she’s strange?”

*

Joon-jae laughs it off, but Nam-doo speak him not to brush the aside—she may be beautiful and sweet, yet she’s definitely strange. Nam-doo confides the he’d had another doctor look at Chung’s foot X-rays, who was sure that the damaged bone that should have actually taken six weeks come heal to be perfect in one. Nam-doo points out that Joon-jae would normally uncover it weird too, if not for the effect Chung has actually on him.

Then Nam-doo holds increase the pearl he’d swiped native Chung’s stash, asking just how a girl with no job or skills could amass so many to sell. Joon-jae’s mind flashes to the dream he just had, and also Se-hwa’s pearls.

Nam-doo adds that Joon-jae can’t remember meeting Chung in Spain, and also Joon-jae’s mind flashes to much 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, yet he appears to have lost interest.

*
*

Joon-jae asks why Nam-doo is curious around all that. Nam-doo replies in his half-joking tone, “I’m afraid you’ll end up being a great guy, when I just barely turn you into a bad one v some use. After meeting Chung, you keep wanting to be a kind guy and it bothers me. If friend do, you’ll leaving me.”

Joon-jae scoffs in ~ that, if Nam-doo adds the it’s a fun an enig that he’s will on unraveling. Nam-doo leaves, and Joon-jae says with part determination the he’ll have to be the first to find out that Chung is.

At the police station, Detective Hong gift his boss with a new theory about Dae-young. Looking in ~ his prison document reveals mostly assault charges, springing from anger administration problems, but there’s one year (1988) as soon as he engaged in a rashes of robberies—and only at one purchase mall. His assumption: v is a mrs was the cause.

*

Convenient cut to Stepmom, who notices Chairman Dad struggling to master food in his chopsticks, lacking because of his eyesight. That complains the dizziness, and Stepmom hand him his pills (don’t take them!) and also urges the to rest today and also leave anything vital to she (nooooo) and his secretary. Chi-hyun doesn’t voice his concerns, despite he clearly has them.

Chung’s young girlfriend Yoo-na find breakfast pre-made because that her, she hard-working mom currently out for the day. Yoo-na reads Mom’s note around going to academy today, looking sad.

Chung returns to the claw device to case her pink octopus, and also fails however again. Yoo-na finds she here and also asks why she is so intent to success that particular toy.

*

Chung marvels why she’s here, and Yoo-na admits the she play hooky today; she didn’t have all over to go, but remembered the Chung claimed she stayed in this neighborhood.

Chung asks exactly how Yoo-na knew she had to acquire that pink octopus, and also Yoo-na replies, “You stated it.” Chung is confused, because that wasn’t a voice Yoo-na could hear, yet Yoo-na says she heard Chung psyching it s her up all the way down the street.

Joon-jae comes approximately Chung’s room, however finds that empty. Spotting the seasoned of pearls by her bed, he wonders whereby they come from, and also why she to plan to market them to provide that money to him—he’d never asked her for any.

*

Nam-doo provides a phone speak to to scam target Jin-joo to save her on the hook, saying that his boss is rather busy and that she shouldn’t gain her really hopes up, but that he’ll store trying to get her an opening.

Mid-call, Joon-jae come tearing the end of his room and running from room come room, trying to find something (or someone), though as soon as Nam-doo asks if he’s searching for Chung, Joon-jae pretends he’s looking for Tae-oh. Who, by the way, is ideal there. (Nam-doo: “Are you a actual con artist or not? Why are you so negative at lying?”)

Chung arrives through Yoo-na in tow, and also Joon-jae runs over come scold her for not keeping her dead phone “fed,” appealing to her love that food to make it sound prefer her phone gets sad and hungry. The course, precocious Yoo-na actions up to exactly his misuse of words, hee.

*
*

Joon-jae asks why Chung has actually such weird friends, indigenous a beggar to a grade-schooler, and Yoo-na replies, “Ajusshi, you’re unemployed.” Pert tiny thing.

Joon-jae blusters, taking offense come unemployed and also ajusshi, saying the she’s not correct on both scores. Yoo-na claims plainly that “unemployed slacker” is apt when referring to someone who sits at house doing nothing while normal human being are in ~ work, or lying around watching TV (like Nam-doo) or playing games (Tae-oh).

Chung asks, wide-eyed, “Are friend an unemployment slacker?” Joon-jae protests, a bit lamely, and avoids her eye together he replies that he’s a freelancer, and it’s entirely feasible to work from home.

*

Chung agrees, and also uses Joon-jae’s indigenous to explain to Yoo-na the he’s functioning “even harder than a civil servant” on instead of of the nation. She speak the girl to flourish up and also be choose Joon-jae.

Joon-jae actually blurts, “You can’t!” to cover the slip, that adds, “Do you think just anyone can be favor me?”

Nam-doo marvels if the little girl is ~ above winter vacation already, and Joon-jae says (with way more shock 보다 you’d think is ideal for a con artist), “You’re playing HOOKY?”

*

The adult sit Yoo-na down, and Joon-jae insists the she needs to keep going come school, also though Nam-doo reminds him that he dropped out (and later obtained his equivalency). Chung asks if those girls room bullying she again, but Yoo-na describes that her factor for ditching college is due to the fact that she “gains superpowers” at school, which renders Nam-doo burst out laughing.

Yoo-na explains how she i do not care invisible, and also nobody sees she or speak to her. That’s why it’s it s okay if she doesn’t go, and also nobody will notice anyway. Joon-jae eyes her sympathetically as she states she’s various from the other kids, based on where she lives and also how she only has actually a mom. “Don’t human being dislike people who are various from them?”

Chung thinks to herself, I’m different too. If the finds out I’m different, Heo Joon-jae will hate me, won’t he? Joon-jae looks over at her—omo omo, have the right to he hear? the looks surprised once she thinks, He’ll leave, won’t he?

*
*

Yoo-na asks, not realizing the Chung didn’t speak it the end loud, “Why space you different, unni? and why would the ajusshi Heo Joon-jae hate you if you’re different?” Joon-jae’s mouth drops in shock.

To the others, it sounds choose Yoo-na spoke the end of nowhere, and neither Nam-doo no one Tae-oh heard Chung say anything. They figure Yoo-na imagined things, and also Chung nervously bring away Yoo-na’s hand and takes her to her room.

Bewildered, Joon-jae confirms with the boys the the didn’t hear Chung to speak those words, climate lies that he didn’t hear anything either.

*

Chung sits Yoo-na down to test whether she deserve to hear her thoughts. Yoo-na parrots earlier Chung’s thoughts exactly: She came here from a faraway place, and also feels lonely because she came for one man and also left everything else.

Chung speak her not to call anyone, due to the fact that she can’t have actually Joon-jae disliking her for gift different. Yoo-na promises.

Joon-jae hears the Manager Nam has woken up, and rushes come the hospital to watch him. He can’t relocate or speak, yet Joon-jae assures the mam that he’ll get better. It appears that Ajusshi deserve to hear and also think, though, and also his eyes fine up through tears, make his wife expect that he desires to call Joon-jae something.

*
*

Ajusshi’s wife sees Joon-jae out, and asks hesitantly if he’s had actually news of his mother. It turns out the Joon-jae’s mommy has dubbed Ajusshi sometimes in the past, however had asked she to store it a secret. Ajusshi’s wife doesn’t have actually much information around Mom’s whereabouts, and says the all mommy did was ask after Joon-jae. The wife had assured she he to be 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 also when Chung pokes her head the end of her door, he speak her not to come down. “Okay,” she agrees, if climbing down the ladder. Hehe.

*

She join him in his room and also recognizes alcohol from every her drama-watching, noting that it makes human being laugh and also cry and sprawl out on sidewalks. Joon-jae claims that’s what Nam-doo it s okay like, putting on the aegyo and drunk-dialing exes and also insisting he’s no drunk, which has actually earned himself the nickname of Dog Nam-doo. Joon-jae claims that Nam-doo never learned exactly how to drink properly, and also boasts the he’s not like that—he’s disciplined sufficient to reap drinking while controlling himself. Oh, we’ll see about that.

Chung asks Joon-jae come teach her exactly how to drink, and that doesn’t seem prefer a negative idea so he sits she down and pours she a beer. She’s chugging it down prior to he even starts with any kind of tips, and he tells she she’s doing it wrong: drink is around the cheers. The clinks she glass with his.

*

Chung proceeds to inquiry cheers ~ cheers until she’s relaxing her head in she hand and also asking she octopus jerky plaintively why it’s therefore dried. “People room so cruel,” she wails. “How could they grill you, tear you apart, and also dry girlfriend out? It’s so pitiful!”

Joon-jae points the end that she’s crazy around sashimi, however Chung counters, “They’re different! come me, octopus are like dogs space to friend humans!” Joon-jae asks, “You humans? Aren’t you a person too?”

Chung replies, “Nope. I’m a mer…” and then she stops, blinks, and also is perfectly sober again. Joon-jae’s amazing at her sudden recovery, while Chung is passionate to clink glasses again.

*
*

A few drinks later, it’s Joon-jae who’s tipsy—he sounds entirely normal, yet doesn’t establish he’s repeating the very same speech about how he’s able to regulate his drink perfectly, and also how she’s happy he’s the one to teach her, since he’s may be to regulate his drinking perfectly, i beg your pardon is why she’s lucky he’s to teach her. And on and on.

Pretty soon, his head is tilting and also he’s laughing for no reason. That points his finger all roughly the room favor they’re in ~ a bar and declares that nobody’s going home tonight. Chung points the end that they’re currently at home, but he just points in ~ her and also sing-songs, “Especially you. Friend can’t go. Don’t go.”

He addresses Chung as he picks up his phone and complains, “I told her clearly, if she’s not at home, she has to stay by my side. However she doesn’t listen.”

*

He calls, and also Chung’s call rings across the room. However when she gets up to answer it, he orders her to remain put—and then complains once Chung doesn’t answer her phone. Omg, he’s adorable. Dork Joon-jae, move aside, Drunk Joon-jae is my new favorite!

Joon-jae call again, and Chung tries to sneak away to price it, only to have actually him order her to freeze. He offers up ~ above the call and also moves to take the seat alongside her—and climate he pulls her close in a huge hug, exclaiming, “You can’t go!” She assures him that she won’t, and also decides the alcohol is the best thing on land.

Still holding she close, Joon-jae mumbles sleepily, “Don’t go. Also if we’re different—no matter how various we are, i won’t leave you.” He falls asleep on she shoulder, and Chung says, “I hope that’s not a lie. I desire that to be the truth.”

*
*

In the morning, he’s giant hungover. Chung explains to Nam-doo that he was to teach her how to drink for the very first time. Nam-doo claims he could have teach her, and when Chung reminds him of his Dog Nam-doo drunk habits, he states that Joon-jae learned come drink native him. Hee.

Chung asks if words talked while drunk are lies or truth, and Nam-doo says it might be either—but in Joon-jae’s case, it’s all lies, and she should simply think of that conversation as “talking to a puppy—all nonsense.” Aw. She takes the in disappointedly.

Time for the following step in the Jin-joo con, together she takes in her dog 500 to solve his wagging tail, i m sorry Jin-joo swears is a sign of part problem due to the fact that the dog is as well “chic” (“Like me”) to wag it out of slim happiness. Man lady is ridiculous.

*

Jin-joo exclusive right up when Nam-doo drops by through 900 and asks if he’s made any headway into acquiring 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 hands Nam-doo a gift that handmade doggie kibble, questioning for an excellent news following time.

Hearing the update, Shi-ah repeats her id that it’s a scam, though Jin-joo says that no cheat artist would certainly play this difficult to get. Joon-jae’s mommy interrupts the conversation to make a request the Shi-ah different her laundry to make her job a bit easier, and Shi-ah flies off the handle, pointing out 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 want to it is in Shi-ah’s mother-in-law. Heh. Ns love her retorts. Shi-ah whines in ~ Jin-joo to fire her, however Jin-joo can’t till after she’s organized the affluent CEO come dinner.

Then Nam-doo calls with the an excellent news she’s been dying to hear, and schedules that dinner. The following day, Jin-joo’s every aflutter through excitement as she decides what come wear, and also Joon-jae’s mommy hilariously offers her backhanded advice (“Don’t friend think the looks shabby? yet wear it if you choose it”).

*

Jin-joo grouses around how she end up doing what the housekeeper says, however has to recognize she’s never wrong, which provides it extra annoying. Nam-doo calls Jin-joo to give her “tips” on exactly how to act around the CEO, feeding she nervousness come impress.

Jin-joo’s husband Dong-shik admits to misgivings around Shi-ah’s comment that it’s a scam, however Jin-joo insists that Shi-ah to know nothing of the actual world. She warns him not to ask too countless questions or appear old-fashioned, and also Dong-shik assures her that he won’t pry for info to the man’s face; he’ll do it behind his back.

Joon-jae and also Chung get dressed come the nines and head over, and also Joon-jae reminds Chung for the umpteenth time that she can’t use his genuine name. Nam-doo glosses it end as just a component of act business.

*
*

Jin-joo, Dong-shik, and also daughter Elizabeth greet the guest at the gate, on their ideal behavior. Jin-joo pours ~ above the pleasantries in an effort to appeal come Chung, provided how they clashed last time end Elizabeth fighting with Yoo-na. Chung tells the little girl to be good to Yoo-na, if Jin-joo falls anywhere herself kissing up to Chung.

And then, Shi-ah come home. Aieeee!

But in ~ the critical second, Jin-joo sends out Shi-ah to the keep to choose up a last-minute item. Five you’re walk to traction this out till I’m a worried wreck, room you? good then. Difficulty accepted.

*
*

The males exchange organization cards, and also Dong-shik sneaks off to examine that it’s legit, call the Tokyo-based office. He’s considerably relieved to hear that the CEO is in Korea, though not as well bright not to think about that the number is fake to start with—it’s just Tae-oh on the various other line, after ~ all.

Jin-joo fusses over the food made by the housekeeper, confident that sincere home-cooking will appeal to the CEO. The team makes tiny talk, such together CEO Kim’s marriage plans, and Joon-jae claims they’ll tie the knot abroad next year. While Chung doesn’t reply, she does look at Joon-jae uncertainly, maybe also dubiously.

*
*

When Joon-jae bites into one dish, he’s hit v recognition and also compliments it, saying that it’s similar to a food his mom used to make. Jin-joo’s dazzling to listen it and also calls because that more, which brings Joon-jae’s mom out. She doesn’t watch 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 capture a glimpse of she back.

Shi-ah traction up in prior of the house, and Tae-oh recognizes her with alarm. Ns can’t believe you operated on this con for so long and also didn’t establish this was she family, you dolts. The jumps out and also intercepts Shi-ah at the gate, and also thinks rapid to explain why he’s here and why he demands to speak to her.

*

She states she has important guests over and also starts come head inside, so Tae-oh grabs her by the shoulder and blurts, “I love you, noona!” LOL.

That, at least, calls because that a more serious talk, so they relocate come a cafe, whereby Tae-oh keeps his head hanging waaaaay down in mortification. She totally buys the story, and sighs at the dilemma due to the fact that Tae-oh knows exactly how she feels about Joon-jae. She speak him the there’s no crime in loving, and clucks over exactly how thin his challenge has become due to his supposed lovesickness.

She asks if she have the right to leave now, and also he shakes his head frantically. She sighs at exactly how awful this is, when she only has eyes for Joon-jae, feeling all kinds of gratified pity for Tae-oh’s to like on her. Meanwhile, Tae-oh sneaks turn off a message to Nam-doo, telling him to leaving quickly due to the fact that it’s Shi-ah’s house.

*
*

Thankfully the VIP dinner is in the dessert-and-coffee stage, and Nam-doo whispers the warning into Joon-jae’s ear. They obtain up immediately, citing a last-minute emergency, sending out Jin-joo into a flurry of panicky questions about whether they did anything wrong.

Joon-jae manages to acquire out the the home moments before Shi-ah pulls up, thankfully. Tempers are high as soon as they acquire home, and Joon-jae yells at Nam-doo for not doing his study properly.

All the while, Chung has actually been quietly taking every little thing in, and also when Nam-doo says they nearly got caught, she picks up ~ above that and asks what they virtually got caught for, and also why the would have been trouble. Joon-jae won’t fulfill her eye.

*

She thinks, Heo Joon-jae, space you a con artist? room you a bad guy?

Joon-jae hears it, and also his head swivels in her direction. He think of her previously thought the he would hate her if that knew exactly how she to be different. Chung asks, Was it all a lie?

“Yes,” Joon-jae declares aloud. “I’m someone that lies. Ns deceive others and also earn money. Yes, I’m that sort of person. That’s my secret. What’s yours?”

They stand there through eyes locked, skipping a puzzled Nam-doo in the background, and Chung thinks, My mystery is… the I’m different from you. That I’m a mermaid.

The shock hits Joon-jae, who thinks that the illustration on the vase that the mermaid kissing a man, and also 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 leaving me. Therefore I desire to do my best and also not be uncovered out. Wait, does she no realize that heard her?

Chung heads right into her room, and Joon-jae tries to obtain all his whirling thoughts in order. The checks through Nam-doo about what he simply said, yet Nam-doo says they were just staring at each other silently. Wait, was his confession in his head?

Chung stares at she jar of pearls—it’s fuller now—and clutches at her heart. Joon-jae stares in ~ the photo on Dam-ryung’s vase, listening Chung’s confession repeat in his head, and recalling exactly how he felt choose he to be the male in the picture.

*
*

Suddenly he’s hit with one more memory fragment: sinking in the sea, someone swimming towards him, the kiss.

Joon-jae goes approximately Chung’s loft, worried as soon as he find it empty. The hurries the end of the house, psychic Dam-ryung’s warning the danger and also the danger of Dae-young ~ above the loose. As he sets the end to trying to find her, he sees visions native Dam-ryung’s life, with his encounters v Se-hwa mingling with his very own with Chung.

He breaks into a run as his head floods with much more visions—Dam-ryung and also Se-hwa’s handclasp, and the story of how a young boy fell in love through a mermaid and heard her voice. And how mermaids have a special ability to erase themselves from a human’s memory with a kiss.

Memories indigenous Spain come back, filling in much more blanks of how they met and also grew close and also fell right into the ocean together.

Out the breath and reeling in shock, Joon-jae stand in the center of the road, grappling through the truth.

COMMENTS

What, no epilogue? Aw, come on! because that a show I chosen less, I could not care, but I frequently want an ext at the end of this episodes, and the epilogues feel like I gain to steal a small extra story because that myself.

I’m pleasantly surprised the we have actually the truth out already—I understand Joon-jae’s been having niggling feelings and also memory flashes every along, yet I believed they’d attract it out longer and also am happy to have actually the realization do now. Now that he knows, our story can’t aid but take it a turn, and as much fun together it is to watch Joon-jae dancing approximately his feelings, it’s much more exciting to have actually him check out the full snapshot now.

In the variation of this story that ends in ~ “mermaid falls in love with human,” I’d concern that we don’t have enough story to take it us with the continuing to be episode count, because the question of even if it is the human will accept the mermaid’s love is constantly that critical phase of the conflict. This isn’t that story, though, and because we’re likewise in a mystery where a totality other timeline is running all at once with this one, and also where multiple stays are at stake, the feels choose we’re proceeding to the next phase. Finding out of she mermaid nature isn’t the finishing here; Joon-jae still has actually to number out what his alternate-life self is trying come tell him, when that alternating self has to figure out exactly how to save his life using this portal come Joon-jae.

I absolutely loved Joon-jae getting drunk and showing Chung exactly how he yes, really felt. It may be partially denial that keeps that from being able to be much more forthcoming as soon as he’s sober, but I think the denial is ebbing away, and his reluctance is an ext a general discomfort with expressing himself, rooted in his childhood abandonment. In flashbacks it’s never ever seemed he had actually much trouble showing his love openly, however after moving in v his father and stepfamily, he retreated into himself and also has to be afraid to placed himself out there, because what came back was typically hurtful. So Drunk Joon-jae, as well as being just plain hilarious, was a relief to see since it’s a relief to see him gift honest and also just saying what the feels, in a way that recalls his happier self.

I uncover it amazing that Chung, who’s never had actually trouble making she feelings known, is the one who’s closeup of the door off now out of are afraid of rejection, just as Joon-jae’s comes to recognize his. Ns can’t deny the I miss out on the boisterous, no-filter version of Chung, yet I can’t blame her for gift protective, either. If only she knew the wasn’t necessary; i was excited when he began to hear her inner voice—while us still don’t understand why Yoo-na have the right to hear mermaid voices, she’s always been able to hear them, so ns count that as something indigenous to she being. With Joon-jae, it can only median that he’s fully in love with Chung now, mirroring the boy of the legends, and also as such I thought it was a yes, really lovely method to obtain him to find out the truth: simply as she concerns that he’d never have the ability to accept her, he pertains to love her enough to allow himself to find the reality on his own.
