I am exhausted, so have some caps from eps 7 and 8 without much in the way of comment.

I really loved seeing everyone, especially Jae Ha (these eps really belonged to Lee Seung Gi) coping with the new world.

I still fail to see the necessity of the (implied) sex scene - the emotional climax of the whole episode (let alone that scene) was Jae Ha actually finally allowing himself to break down and crying in Hang Ah's arms, allowing her in closer than anyone else ever. Sex just seemed not necessary at that point - sure, if they were a couple together for a while, who had sex many a time before, it would be fine. But an OTP's first time (and Hang Ah's first time ever?) entirely off-screen, as an afterthought, is kinda bizarre. Plus, having comfort-your-SO sex as a first time is really quite depressing. Ugh. The more I think about it, the less I like the choice. It was wrong for the scene, wrong for the romance, and wrongish for the characters. The only reason I can think of is that they wanted to have a baby in the future for plot reasons or something but still - first of all, I don't like baby plots in thrillers/romances, and second of all, there should have been a better way to get there and have a sex scene that meant something.

As much as I ship Jae-ha/Hang-ah, I have to agree with you that their (completely off-screen and merely implied) first time is unnecessary and off. Hang-ah has been built up as naive and conservative in the romance department, and now she's offering some comfort sex to a guy she's still not entirely comfortable with? I also agree that this ruins the momentum of the romance. *sighs* Why, show? Why?

I think they're going to have a ~surprise~ pregnancy followed by a rushed wedding.

I have heard rumors about the pregnancy even before ep 7 and 8 aired...I don't know how I'll like that plot development

Yeah, I am not keen on it either.

Seriously, this just seemed so out of nowhere. Ugh.

I really love the scene where Jaeshin sang for him....Even in your screencap the screen composition is so beautiful, with the nightscape!

I agree...the sex scene just didn't flow nicely or seem appropriate at all. I was thinking baby plot too but I felt it was too early to go there. I guess I could be wrong since there are already rumors about it out there.

Yeah, I think it was a misstep. A minor one but still...
