K-Drama Reaction: Radio Romance | Episode 14

Finally! The truth about the events that happened between the teenage Ji Soo-ho (Nam Da-reum), Song Geu-rim (Lee Re), and Woo Ji-woo (Choi Min-yeong) from 12 years ago has been revealed.

THE TRUTH

So, a depressed Soo-ho met Ji-woo at the hospital when the former got admitted following an apparent suicide. Meanwhile, Ji-woo had been practically living at the hospital for quite sometime due to a terminal disease. He was the first one to like Geu-rim who was frequently visiting the hospital to look after her mom who got an eye surgery. Ji-woo told his newfound friend Soo-ho about his secret feelings for Geu-rim and even asked his help to give her his love letters only for him to see Soo-ho kissing the girl he likes. And this, I think, is the ghost that kept Soo-ho from having a peaceful sleep at night for years.

I can clearly see where all of Soo-ho’s (Yoon Doo-joon) guilt is coming from. I also don’t agree that he used Ji-woo’s name when he approached Geu-rim, and that he didn’t give some of Ji-woo’s love letters to the girl they both liked. It could’ve been better if he became honest to both Ji-woo and Geu-rim at the very start. Though I believe in the unwritten rule that one should keep off the person his friend likes, I think this doesn’t apply to Soo-ho and Ji-woo’s case because it’s clear that Soo-ho is already smitten by Geu-rim even before he became friends with Ji-woo and learned about his secret feelings. I just wish that he became true.

And just like what I’ve said before, it’s impossible that Soo-ho would murder his friend just because of their love rivalry. It’s also revealed in this episode that Jason (Kwak Dong-yeon) is the one sending the postcards saying Soo-ho is a murderer, and I must admit that my faith in him is wavering. Is he really an ally or an enemy? He said that he only did that because he wanna see Soo-ho’s unfiltered reaction. If it’s for Soo-ho’s welfare or for JH Entertainment CEO Nam Joo-ha’s (Oh Hyun-kyung) benefit, that I don’t know.

Will this revelation be enough to ruin Soo-ho and Geu-rim’s (Kim So-hyun) relationship now that the latter is seeking answers? I hope not.

LOVE CONSEQUENCES

Fans can really make or break the person they idolize, but in Soo-ho’s case, it’s clearly the latter. Though I appreciate Soo-ho for being man enough to remain by Geu-rim’s side and protect her despite his fans’ threat to boycott him, I still feel bad for our heroine who seems to receive more of the hate. I can tolerate them badmouthing Geu-rim on forums or camping out in front of her house or even barging in at her home, but I cannot forgive them for dragging Geu-rim’s mom into the issue. That’s foul.

I will never understand why some fans seem to think that they own their idols or that they have a say on their personal lives like in choosing who they should love. Celebrities are also human beings, for Pete’s sake! Let them date and be happy.

RECONCILIATIONS

You will feel that a drama is nearing its end when there are lots of reconciliations happening. Jin Tae-ri (Yura) apologized to Soo-ho for bothering him all this time, and also for blackmailing him with his voice recording. Soo-ho seems to not hold grudges very deeply, but I think Tae-ri needs to apologize to Geu-rim for slapping her so that Soo-ho can forgive her completely. But the truth is, I’m more excited with how Tae-ri and Manager Kim Jun-woo (Ha Joon) are gonna reconcile.

Writer Ra Ra-hee (Kim Hye-eun) also softened her approach to Geu-rim, even giving her advice as to how a heartbreak can help her improve her writing. Alright. Even though she’s annoying and her attitude stinks, I still wish her and PD Lee Seung-soo (Im Ji-kyu) a second shot at love together. Maybe love is sweeter the second time around for them, who knows?
