K-Drama Reaction: Manhole | Episode 8

We return to a more realistic present timeline in this hour, and probably the most hurtful revelations to date.

GRUMPY ALLEY

Don’t you just love Manhole’s set of OSTs?

  • THE WRATH OF THE SECOND LEAD

Bong Pil (Jaejoong) returns to his old life as an ordinary boy-next-door who is still caught up in a one-sided love with Soo-jin (UEE) – but this time, he is working as a part-timer in Jin-sook’s (Jung Hye-sung) juice truck! It’s the day when Jae-hyun (Jang Mi-kwan) proposes to Soo-jin, so Pil is a bit agitated after realizing that he did not end up with Soo-jin after that cliffhanger confession in the last episode.

My heart goes out to Jin-sook who endured the pain alone all these years while harboring that unrequited love for Pil. And this time, we see a different side of Jin-sook – a more human side of her. No matter how nice you are to always step back for the love of your life, you are just a human, a weak and fragile human. This also reveals the fallout between Pil and Soo-jin… or why they never got the chance to be together.

Remember when Suk-tae (Baro) blocked Soo-jin’s confession photo card for Pil back in high school? This time, it’s Jin-sook’s turn to become the green-eyed monster. She apparently intercepted all the letters of Pil for Soo-jin when he was still serving in the military! That was for two whole years!!!! I love Jin-sook, but the fact that she can deceive her friends like that makes her a real bitch. She did not even had the guts to tell Soo-jin that she had her lost camera all along. If not for Jae-hyun, that camera will be forgotten in time.

  • MARRIAGE IS NOT THE ANSWER

I swear the Goo-gil – Jung-ae – Dal-soo love triangle makes this drama a whole lot better! I like how Jung-ae’s heart is as unpredictable as this drama goes. Jung-ae tried to discuss wedding plans with Dal-soo, but failed to get any interest from him. He does not want to talk about it marriage yet as they were both young. They had a misunderstanding, and Goo-gil used this chance to court Jung-ae with a teddy bear and a bouquet of flowers.

Ah… My heart was not ready for that co-habitation proposal from Dal-soo! And of course, to make it more complicated, Goo-gil had to witness it! I am torn~

  • HER SNAKE FIANCE

I am still not charmed by Jae-hyun’s lovey dovey antics with Soo-jin, and we are halfway already. Maybe because he was introduced in the original timeline as a cheater, I don’t care about his marriage proposal in this episode. Some may find it sweet, but the epilogue reveals that he is still a cheater. Cheating does not only mean having third party or another affair outside of the relationship. It can also mean starting the relationship through evil ways, like what Jae-hyun did. I was about to suspect Suk-tae again because of his reputation (LOL), but it turned out Pil was right with Jae-hyun. He got it right again this time. Too bad Soo-jin does not believe him when he said Jae-hyun was the one who deleted his confession video.

Fate and bad timing, Pil-ah!

PS: How cute is Suk-tae while fixing that blender for Jin-sook? I love them!
