“I Want To Be With You”
These words uttered by Hana may sound so simple but turns out to be the hardest thing she’ll ever do. To be with her ultimate love would mean hurting her own sick mother. The sacrifice she has to do just to spend time with him would mean lying to her mom who fully trusts her… To break the promise she made to her mom in helping her find her first love. All these took the backseat in this episode.. that despite everything that’s going to happen, she still chooses to be with Seo Joon.
This episode shows how love is never enough.. how love can’t be all fairy tale but instead it’s about hard work. Seo Joon said that he doesn’t believe in fate, and that they saw 2 epic moments together not because they’re meant to be together but they chose to be together. Love cannot work without sacrifice, and i applaud Seo Joon for choosing Love even though this means constant heartaches.
Inha for all we know is willing to go against all odds for his love for Yoonhee, but now it’s much harder than that, he is a man who is in love, but above all else he is a father. Being a parent is the most selfless role any person can have. Yoonhee… poor Yoonhee, who spent her life in misery, never questioned anything, accepts defeat gracefully and cries secretly, the love she has is so great that she is happy just seeing her loved ones happy.
Not all culture can relate to the sacrifice these two couples have to go through, as we are aware that western culture is more open to mixed families and inter relationships, how the value of marriage has declined greatly because of divorce being given freely.. PD Yoon has taken us back to the time when love is worth fighting for, where love isn’t something you pick up and just drop when you think it’s too much or too boring.. This episode has shown us the struggle for Seo Joon and Hana to be together no matter what.. because what they have is worth fighting for… Seo Joon has the character of being scared of commitment but in this episode, he shows us the other side of him…. the Seo Joon who will go far for Hana, who is proud to call her his wife, to be with her FOREVER.
Seo Joon is now in love—— the little things he does to make her happy, the hearty meal he prepared for her, those tight hugs, those melting stares, the heartwarming words assuring he’s always there and how he misses her, the chocolate surprise. Episode 17 has made us fall deeply in love with Seo Joon.
