Lee Kyung Hee really knows how to do melodrama! I could barely breathe watching this. I have no idea how the characters got to this point (OK, I lied, I have some limited idea) but what strikes me is that it doesn't matter because while knowledge is absent, emotion is not. To me, this shows what the best dramas can do - to transcend logic and go straight for the heart. I don't mean that I don't want consistent, plot-hole-less writing from my dramas (and in any event, I have no idea if ep 9 of NG is logical or not as I have not yet seen it), but ultimately, what I really want - I want my dramas to make me feel, to transform me into another state of being entirely, so that any other issues, the logical brain part of me, ceases to matter.

And oooh boy, does that clip deliver that. Straight to the heart. I especially love that Maru says barely a word during the whole scene and yet you can feel his every emotion - sadness, guilt, longing, shock, love (yes, I do believe it's love), as clearly as if he's been shouting it.
