1..2…3… Seconds Is too long, Took a millimeter to feel the fangirl moment coming through our veins! Keke
Really thankful to have been chosen to do EP 5, since I’m pretty much the youngest out of the followers here which means I practically know the idea of so called “modern love”.
Overall, it was a really good episode. Not being biased here, but for an introduction of a new story, they did a really good job giving a good pace and flow in showing the meet between Seo Joon and Hana. There were some points where I felt it was going too fast haha maybe i’m just used to that melo feel from the 70s.
The scenery that was shown from start to finish was beautiful. The snow really gave that newly fresh feel. Though the several scenes that just showed pure white snow, it really sparkled in its beauty.
Secondly, I LOVE the transformation in their characters. Was really looking and focusing in Yoona particularly since I knew Sukkie will do a good job already and practically everyone is giving second chances in HaNa. Yoona did a fabulous job, like literally. Couldn’t find any scenes that made me disappointed in her facial expressions and her movements. although portraying a bubbly character is easier than acting out a person who needs to show sad faces, through the drama I’ve seen, it’s really common to see actresses acting way too much. To the point where the voice and facial expressions are annoying. Sooo kudos to Yoona!
My sister was super shocked and Impressed how he dramatically changed. She said “WHAT THE HECK. He was soooo innocent in the 70s but all of sudden he became soo bad!! How is that??” my simple response.. “he’s a good actor!” haha the hair, clothes, face expressions was perfect. The act when he seduces a girl is just omgg….!! I really wonder how he became so professional showing playboy smirks and winks.
As for Sukkie, ugh *speechless* words can’t describe how impressed I am once again in his performance. Was afraid that I would see HTK in him, but nope. His character is more matured and his bad boyish really gave a whole different vibe. My sister was very shock and super
Both showed changes that will HOPEFULLY make people who didn’t appreciate the 70s part will rewind a bit to see how the whole drama is focusing on the differences between the two eras.
And finally, the symbolism in this episode really showed. Diary to phone and painting to digtal camera and musical cafe to drinking bars/clubs
Somehow Rain and Snow might be symbolizing something too since they’re opposites, but not quite sure how. Although I feel that rain gave this purity feel in the 70’s, or the pureness of love that was shown. While snow,,, hmmm i’ll let you guys think about that. Haha.
My last thoughts for EP5 is it’s very realistic.
1. When Jun will use basic words to simply get a girl to fall for him. Which I feel is quite common nowadays, many men would usually think that women are easy to hmm “play” with.
2. How impatient or intempered people nowadays can get. Jun showed this alot, while no characters in the 70s showed any impatience. I guess now most people know there’s always gonna be an easier way in doing things, while 70s didn’t have those options.
Thanks to the writer, I think people can see how the present generation really changed compared to their parents’ generation.
And I hope one day I’ll see Diamond Snow with my soulmate. Keke 😉
