Okay, I’ve finished watching episode 19 and I gotta say I don’t understand why everyone
over at Dramabeans (to be fair, rampant speculation is taking place everywhere) is assuming that Han Kang and Yi-kyung are going to end up together. Reading the comments in the forums, it’s as if the conclusion has been set in stone. If there’s one thing this drama has proven time and time again, it’s that it’s totally capable of pulling the carpet out from under your feet when you least expect it.
Look, I like Yi-kyung and Han Kang a lot but not together. I don’t get it. Why do they have to end up as a couple? It doesn’t make sense if you consider the fact that the drama has been driving home the JH-HK pairing forever. Even though I’m not wildly enthusiastic about this, it doesn’t mean that I’d rather see him with a woman he’s only known for what, slightly over two weeks at best? Ji-kyung I’d understand but Yi-kyung and Han Kang? I don’t know…I just don’t feel it. Also Yi-kyung, despite having been in the throes of a major depression for most of the drama, seems like a pretty grounded and sensible person to me. Even if a romance were to blossom between them, I don’t think it’s going to materialise immediately. For starters, she’d definitely know that he still has feelings for Ji-hyun and I don’t think she wants to be anyone’s rebound.
