So, no surprise to anyone that this week's eps of Nice Guy were excellent.

The end of ep 15 and the scene is so tender and hopeful and romantic:

The scene at the end of ep 16, which breaks my heart:

I really do think Maru knows Eun Gi has remembered everything and is willingly offering himself up for the knife (so to speak). And that is what makes that last kiss so heartbreaking - he knows it's good bye, he knows it doesn't mean what Eun Gi ostensibly means, and he still kisses her with all his heart and soul, he is still utterly vulnerable and open. If she wanted him to carve his heart out of his chest, he would do it, to expiate and because he loves her and because he doesn't expect anything good in life. Oh Maru, I really hope he has a chance for a fresh start at the end, hope and happiness. I've seen people wonder if he will lose his memories at the end (that surgery he keeps postponing has a chance of that) and I might be the only one rooting for that - he really needs a clean slate, without the burden of his past and his guilt. And if that is the only way to get it, so be it.

Ep 22 of Five Fingers was delicious.....

Not much shipping by now due to all the revenge, so I'l take what I can get. Mmmm, Ji Ho to the rescue!

I have to say, if JH had any tiny sliver of reluctance at destroying his family, that incident ended it. When he was in YR's room and staring at her, I was totally freaked out. (Does nobody in that house lock their doors, btw?) And then the way he orchestrated YR's public confession he is a murderess and his face!!! He is terrifying now. Since I am pretty sure he is YR's sun, this is all so tragic and Yoo Manse should burn in hell.

Ugh, yes! I think Maru losing his memory in the surgery or whatever would be the only way to logically end up with at least a semi-happy ending. It's a bit cliche (dramas like Hello God have done similar things before) but at least it'd provide a nice parallel in that Eungi would protect him in the same way he protected her. Not to mention I would love to see Maru gain some sort of the same happiness Eungi got back with her amnesia. He's happy right now, sure, but even then it's a careful, wary sort of happiness that he believes he doesn't deserve. I would love to see a full smile, with teeth, like you see him doing in flashbacks pre-Jaehee (I don't think Maru has ever smiled w/ his mouth open since).

And I totally agree that Maru knows. There's a theory going around that he's the one who left the envelope in her office, which would of course be heartbreaking. I'm not used to him being so vulnerable. :(

Yes, it makes me think of Crazy for You, where the hero eventually lost his memory and it was fine because his past was so horrible. This is what I think goes here, too.

While I agree that it's heartbreaking, I'm sort of in love with this theory because I think it would make sense for Maru to offer Eungi that kind of fatal gift. On one hand it brings everything out in the open and possibly kickstarts her memories of that awful moment. On the other hand that memory leaves him completely vulnerable to Eungi's anger and hate. So for him to put himself in that kind of vulnerable position after everything he's been through, says a lot about how much he loves her, how much he thinks he owes her. I really hope Eungi forgives him because it would be such a waste.

Yup, it's definitely bittersweet. I hate that he's so vulnerable but at the same time I also hope it's true because it would make a lot sense-- if it's true, it's definitely an indicator of how much he's willing to do for Eungi and how far he's come. Of course part of this has to do with the fact that he really doesn't give a shit about himself or what happens to him so long as Eungi gets what she needs, which is the saddest part.
