K-Drama Reaction: Manhole | Episode 12

Manhole is shifting to a darker approach as we stay in the future timeline for this week. I can sense a very familiar shift from rom-com to dark romance, but I am welcoming this change as much as I enjoy watching this underrated drama.

  • FROM FIGHT MY WAY TO STRONG WOMAN DO BONG SOON REAL QUICK

Jae-hyun (Jang Mi-kwan) is starting to gain this reputation of being the psychopath-slash-stalker creep who beats out innocent people. Not that I am complaining, but this just gives me some Strong Woman vibe wherein he played an almost identical character.

His ex-girlfriend Park Young-ju is equally creepy in her plan of approaching Soo-jin (UEE)! Now I understand why she can’t move on from Jae-hyun. They were so compatible to the point that they have the tendency of stalking and blackmailing their loved ones.

  • BACK TO THE FUTURE WITH THE MISSING MANHOLE

I felt sad during the flashbacks of Pil’s (Jaejoong) misadventures in the different timelines. Of course, the Soo-jin in this future timeline does not remember any of these, and Pil is the only one who can remember all of these things. I feel sad for Pil because despite the efforts, Soo-jin still chose to love Jae-hyun to the point that she blocks anything that might change her perception of her husband. I almost cried when she talked to Pil about trusting Jae-hyun. Trust is a very big word, and the weight of Pil’s love and Jae-hyun’s dark secret is the burden that Soo-jin has to carry. She chose to side with her husband – a very sensible decision to make – and I admire her for that.

  • ADORKABLE GOO-GIL

Omo… our favorite love struck suitor is in danger!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The neighborhood assailant is out to beat another innocent citizen again, and our poor Goo-gil (Kang Hong-suk) hyung happened to witness everything and got involved in the assault. I just hope police officer Bong Pil will rescue his friend or just do something to save his life from danger!


GRUMPY ALLEY

Notice how the time travel changed its rule from past to future? Is is because Pil traveled an hour earlier than 12 midnight? Does it have something to do with the time of the travel? Enlighten me, jagganim!???
