K-Drama Reaction: Hwayugi | Episode 14

We all have our own definition of love.

Love is…blind

I was relieved to find out that Ma-wang (Cha Seung-won) was relatively fine after receiving 10,000 years worth of pain for his one true love, Na Chal-nyeol (Kim Ji-soo). With the help of Son Oh-gong (Lee Seung-gi) and Elder Soo Bo-ri (Sung Ji-ru), the Princess Iron Fan finally died in peace. The only repercussion of his sacrifice is temporary blindness, which resulted in a lot of hilarious sequences. Those were much-needed relief especially for the looming trouble the demons are facing.Β  If only everything will stay as it is just like how the Great Sage wishes it to be.

Love is…scary

I’m trying to understand why General Frost (Sung Hyuk) had to follow to Ah Sa-nyeo’s (Lee Se-young) orders. He is indebted to the Priestess for letting his sister Fairy Ha’s soul reside in his body. I know, he’s just protecting his sister. Just like Ma-wang, he did what he had to do because of love. But he kind of betraying his friends. They trusted him and I’m both disappointed and sympathetic with his decisions.Β  And this is why the evil shape-shifter’s manipulation enraged me. She’s taking advantage of this weakness for her own benefit.

Love is…fatal

I noticed how Jin Sun-mi (Oh Yeon-seo) reacted after discovering she could see the future (this ability is a bit familiar, eh?). It was evident how badly she wanted to do something for Oh-gong. She was at the stage where she felt scared that her happiness could be gone in an instant. She had to depend on the fate dictated by a bell. She was blinded by this fear and could not see she doesn’t have to do anything. I’m expecting she’ll be able to overcome this insecurities and be braver when it comes to dealing with her relationships.

Maknae’s Episode Verdict

This is a torment to watch. I was silently praying that they will resolve this conflict before the end of this week’s episode but dramagenies have other plans and left me with another cliffhanger. It’s a good thing for the series though as it proves how the story was well thought-out from the start. But it’s not good for my health as I’m losing sleep formulating hypothesis that could lead to a possible happy ending. I’m trusting the writers know how to settle this conflicts they arose.

Dongsaeng’s Afterthoughts

– This girl is ruining my yoga practice. I can’t be at peace whenever I remember her. 😀

– Poor PK. He probably misses Bu-ja.

– I read some comments about Sun-mi as Ma-wang’s daughter. I think it’s a possibility but a bit out of reach. But it’ll be fun to see Ma-wang and Oh-gong’s reaction that they are future in-laws. Their bromance tho γ…‹γ…‹

– So, where can I buy this ring? I’ll buy it for myself πŸ˜‚.

– Red is really Oh Yeon-seo’s color.

– Major lesson from this episode: don’t talk about fate and destiny when you are about to go to bed with oppa! γ…‹γ…‹

  1. Thanks for the recap. It helped make the wait for Hwayugi so much more bearable.

    Two points i agree with you… This script is really well thought through… At first the one body two souls seemed to be a demon thing..but now it is one of the main cause of the demise of SJ! A zombie seemed harmless but a good shell for a 1000yr old spirit… I m totally blown away by the script!!! The writers made me swoon, smile, cry and frustrated every two episodes… They made me sit up on my seat… I really hope the resolution is a good one!!

    The second point is… RED is indeed Oh Yeon Seo’s colour! She looks like a goddess!! The use of black for JSM and many other colours in the alternative world is brilliant…


    1. Anyeong! Thanks too for reading ☺️ have you seen the teaser for episode 15? Oh Yeon-seo is wearing a red outfit there, seems like the soul swapping was successful. But she’s really gorgeous 😍. See you in the next episode!
