Min-kyu (Yoo Seung-ho) and Jia (Chae Soo-bin) spent the night at the warehouse, and they got to bond and get to know each other like normal people. I liked how Min-kyu was comfortably sharing his thoughts to Jia, even though technically she’s a stranger. I don’t understand why he still doesn’t notice her similarity with Jo sajang, whom he occasionally met before for his collectible toy purchases, but it’s okay.
It pains me, though, to hear him talk about Aji-3 so fondly and sadly at the same time, and to think that it’s Jia who listens to all of these stories. It makes me want to just intervene and let him know the truth before he got hurt even more.
Trust is a powerful weapon
As long as they prolong the lie, the pain will only worsen. And it’s a good thing that the truth was revealed through the necklace, and not some villain who tried to spread evil in the story. I know Yoo-cheol (Kang Ki-young) found out everything about the fake Aji-3, but it’s one thing to learn the truth from your enemy than your loved one. And I honestly can’t imagine what hurts worse.
One thing I also noticed about Min-kyu was that he ignored Jin-bae’s (Seo Dong-won) call about Aji-3. We witnessed him getting all love-struck and heartbroken, and any tiny bit of information on Aji-3 would get him glued on his seat. But the moment he met Jia the human, his attention shifted to her. He wanted to befriend her, and shared his most recent heartbreak with her. It’s an impressive action towards healing.
But I know, when we took one step forward, we also took two steps back because of the cliffhanger. Just as we all thought Min-kyu was in remission stage, he just relapsed. I wonder how the dynamics of the story will change now that the hero is allergic to humans again. The extent of pain Min-kyu will feel after learning about everyone’s betrayal is unimaginable… and at this point, I can’t blame him. Everyone deceived him, and just like how Sun-hye (Lee Min-ji) described the situation – literally not a single person surrounding Min-kyu trusted him that he can take a good confession. No one believed that Min-kyu’s love for them is stronger than the lie they built.
My friend, Aji-3
Wow! For the first time in the whole series, I was amazed by Aji-3’s capabilities. The deep learning process was real, you guys! Good job, Sta. Maria! Who would expect that Aji-3 will back-up her memories with Min-kyu on her own? She even remembered using ‘Sandwich’ as a password! If only Ssanip (Kim Min-kyu) and Hoktal (Song Jae-ryong) were a little bit more alert!
I hope every ex-boyfriend would be as mature as Baek-gyun (Uhm Ki-joon):
Baek-gyun: When Min-kyu failed to input what he wanted into Aji-3, I felt the despair that he might have felt. Now, I cannot find the Jia I knew. Whatever I said, she would smile and cheer me on. She’s gone for good. I realized why we’d broken up, and I wanted to make up for my mistakes. But Jia was no longer the same Jia, and I wasn’t the same as well. There is no going back. It’s irreversible.
Pi: That’s so sad. Doesn’t it hurt?
BG: It does. It hurts. But compared to the pain they feel, it’s nothing.
From 1 to Ri-el, how outspoken are you with your dad?
I love the subtle yet sweet moments in and out of the kitchen!
