Boys Over Flowers Part 3

F4

Episode Review 7-12

Before I start I want to acknowledge that is has been an extraordinary length of time since my last post on this blog. I have just finished my 3rd year at University and was hit pretty hard by a death earlier this year and havn’t had the time or mood to watch or write about dramas. However, I am back and really itching to get BOF done because boy do I have a long list to get through.

Episode 7

Favourite Scenes:

After everything goes wrong and Jun Pyo makes it clear that he does not want to see Jan Di any more. So the only logical thing the girl can do is… follow the boy back to his house and force him to listen. I almost died of laughter at the scene between Jan Di and Jun Pyo, first his shocked face that she managed to get there so fast and then as he childishly runs from her before jumping in a car and driving off. Jun Pyo really is a five year old trapped in a man’s body at times and this is the perfect example of such. However, things don’t really work out for him as this marks the arrival of his sister, Jun Hee played by the gorgeous Kim Hyun Joo. The car chase begins before she forces him from the road and beats the shit out of him with what appears to be a stick she keeps in her car O.o I love the sister however and her threatening to ban Jun Pyo from his own house if he doesn’t shut up is priceless.

The movie scene between Jun Pyo and Ji Hoo. This scene really establishes the type of friendship the two of them have and allows us to see that even in F4, these two are particularly close. Jun Pyo meets Ji Hoo at a private cinema, which plays a movie that Ji Hoo states they have watched together many times before and you see how much it hurts both of them that their friendship is on the rocks. Ji Hoo tells Jun Pyo to leave Jan Di alone and tells him he will protect her no matter what. Jun Pyo is furious (and oh sooo jealous), barely controlling his temper and as he leaves he tells Ji Hoo that “If you were a friend that remembered we’ve watched it 11 times together, then something like this wouldn’t have happened.” Oh the pain of this scene, I just want to lock them in a room together and refuse to let them out until they’re all buddy buddy again.

29941979tg7Jun Pyo gets a face full of soup after his sister has had enough of his cocky behaviour. Am I a bad person for loving the scenes where Jun Hee smacks her brother back into place? There is no end to the lols and even Yi Jung and Woo Bin can’t help but giggle.

My ultimate favourite in this episode is without a doubt when Jun Pyo meets Jan Di in the park outside her home. He asks her “Why did it have to be Ji Hoo?” before putting everything on the line including his pride and pulling Jan Di into a hug tells her “It’s still not too late. Just one word, that you like me”. What a way to end an episode.

Comments:

All the boys in F4 are incredibly loyal to one another and it’s interesting to see how they deal with betrayal between them. Yi Jung obviously sides with Jun Pyo, also seeing Ji Hoo’s actions as a personal betrayal. On the other hand Woo Bin is very much torn and whilst he sticks with Jun Pyo, he tries to convince him to change his mind about booting Ji Hoo from F4. I wish I had a group of friends as loyal and caring, I’m sure not many people do.

I love the different competitions that Jun Pyo and Ji Hoo compete in. It really shows the extent of their wealth, though it also allows us to see that they aren’t good at everything… well almost, despite being bat-shit scared of driving or cars in general, Ji Hoo seems to have pretty good control of that vehicle. Horse riding, driving and finally swimming, F4 are gorgeous no matter what they do 😀

Jun Pyo and Ji Hoo in their riding gear 😀 They look their parts; rich boys who have been riding all their lives but all of this is definitely overshadowed by Jun Pyo’s overall loss. Despite winning the first competition after never having beaten Ji Hoo before, Jun Pyo loses his horse because of his own competitiveness. It’s quite interesting to see both boys after, as despite his lose Ji Hoo is in good spirits and spends the afternoon with Jan Di. Jun Pyo on the other hand, despite winning is devastated and his win means very little.

horse race jihoo fiiiine

During the second competition we finally get to see a bit more into Ji Hoo’s past. His nightmare is sooo sad and had me chocking up. I can’t stand to see kids cry and knowing it was Ji Hoo was just like ten times worse. Ji Hoo is shown screaming and crying beside a burning wreck, covered in blood. If that doesn’t get to you… then you don’t have a heart >.< Also, the part where we see Ji Hoo sitting in the car and desperately fighting with himself, shows just how messed up about this he is. One question though… how the hell does he go from a trembling mess sitting in a stationary car to driving round a race track in such a short period O.o Determination, I guess…

Poor Jun Pyo! Things just don’t get much better for him as Ji Hoo takes advantage of his friends jealousy. I forgive Ji Hoo for this simply because he told Jun Pyo he would do anything to protect Jan Di and he is following through on that but the look on Jun Pyo’s face each time is just painful T_T If it were me and my best friend and boyfriend… I would be throwing the biggest wobbly over it and probably being much meaner and childish than Jun Pyo… if that’s possible >.< Ji Hoo realises that he can use this jealousy after he sees Jun Pyo spin out on the track simply because Jan Di and he are chatting happily. Then just before the big race, Ji Hoo gives Jan Di a kiss on the forehead and Jun Pyo watches on in horror before completely blowing the whole race. Ji Hoo’s words however are so sweet: “Jun Pyo, I’m sorry. Even like this I want to protect her.” This is about the time where I find myself staring in horror at my Jun-Jan ship and my Ji-Jan ship whilst I float around in the middle, unable to chose which one I want more… the fact that I know the Ji-Jan ship is doomed to sink means nothing to me.

Episode 8

Favourite Scenes:

This one starts off where the last episode left off; with Jun Pyo’s desperate decision to give Jan Di another chance and asking for a confession. It’s all he needs and then he will let this whole thing go and you can tell Jan Di wants to say it but in true frustrating-lead-female character, she  breaks his heart once again along with her own as she refuses to tell him what he so desperately needs to hear. Jun Pyo warns her it’s her last chance but you can tell he is angry, hurt and in disbelief. Jan Di gives him nothing and tells him she’s fine with that before being left alone to desperately repeat “no regrets, no regrets” to herself.
“I like you” IS THAT SO HARD!?! HE’S NOT ASKING FOR MUCH >.< My heart breaks all over again and I’m left with the strong urge to throw Jan Di across the room, or at the very least my computer.

The final competition comes to an abrupt end when Jun Pyo, unable to deal with whatever the outcome was, plunges the entire swimming pool into darkness before walking out. The next day we see Jun Pyo sulking in bed whilst Yi Jung and Woo Bin attempt to get him up and at ’em. When nothing seems to work, they casually talk about Ji Hoo and Jan Di’s date that day which of course peaks Jun Pyo’s interest. If Jun Pyo being jealous isn’t adorable, I don’t know what is! He flails around in bed before his two loyal friends rush over to get him up. It’s just an entire scene of squishy cuteness!

The sad sad sadness that is the Ji-Jan date >.< I think it is at this point that Ji Hoo really comes to the realisation that he’s lost Jan Di to Jun Pyo when he takes her back to his house after their date. Jun Pyo of course has stalked them throughout the day and is seen pacing outside Ji Hoo’s home, obviously not liking what is going on kicking innocent trees kekeke I laughed at his fail.

Ji Hoo happens to see Jun Pyo on his fancy security system and finds his friend rather amusing. However, things are increasingly awkward for Jan Di and Ji Hoo and who can blame the girl. I’d be awkward too if I walked into my date’s house and found what appeared to be shrine to his last great love and a giant blown up picture of her on the wall O.o Ji Hoo, that’s just creepy. Ji Hoo then goes in for the kiss but is ‘artfully’ dodged. The disappointment on his face is plain to see and I war with myself about whether I want her to kiss him or not. Poor Jun Pyo is outside freezing his arse off!!

kiss dodge

Ji Hoo then pretends to fall asleep, which is exactly what you want your date doing *eyeroll* and Jan Di has the chance to say goodbye to her first love. MAJOR OUCH!! Jun Pyo then leaves the scene, missing his chance to see Jan Di head out and Ji Hoo is left to wallow in his misery. And if he won’t, I’ll do it for him. T_T

pretend sleep

The Ice Hockey scene!!!! I fell in love with Ji Hoo all over again for what he does in this scene… despite the horrible outfits. Ice hockey uniforms just aren’t flattering >.<

Ji Hoo calls the F4 members for a game of Ice Hockey before he royally pisses off Jun Pyo by pretending to be the bad guy. There’s something strangely hot about a mean Ji Hoo O.o But he totally deserves what he gets as he tells Jun Pyo that he’s sick of Jan Di and that he ditched her because she was easy. My reaction? OH NO HE DIDN’T!! And Jun Pyo must be thinking about the same because he is out to kill as the game begins, quickly ending when he catches Ji Hoo and pummels him into the ice. Jun Pyo shows how much he still cares and Yi Jung and Woo Bin attempt to pull the two friends apart. Probably thinking something along the lines of “Shit, not this again.”

Jun Pyo yells at Ji Hoo ” If you hurt Jan Di, I don’t care whether you’re a friend or not, I’m going to kill you.” and Ji Hoo finally lets on to his evil plan with “You could have said that sooner.” Bwhaha Ji Hoo has a mischievous side to him and I like it 😀

JH JP Ice Fight Ji Hoo Ice Jun Pyo Ice

Not long after the scene on the ice, we follow Jan Di as she madly rushes to a hospital room, one shoe missing and distressed. Jun Pyo is found lying (in the biggest hospital bed I have ever seen) unconscious as Ji Hoo and Yi Jung stand by solemnly and Woo Bin yells through tears at his unmoving friend. Jan Di in a desperate attempt to get a reaction from Jun Pyo admits she had lied previously and that she wanted to tell him the truth about her feelings and that she regrets sending him away. She sobs over the bed only to have Jun Pyo open his eyes with a grin.

It seems the boys aren’t out of mean pranks and forms of manipulation just yet as they set the entire thing up to trick Jan Di. I would have punched the whole lot of them if it were me >.< They all burst into laughter and Jan Di turns to Ji Hoo obviously unable to believe he would be apart of this but he all says is “Sorry, but both of you are so stubborn” (Which I can’t agree with more!!) Jan Di then proceeds to beat Jun Pyo up as Ji Hoo leaves the room.

I didn’t think my heart could break more for the boy but of course I was wrong. Ji Hoo’s true feelings about giving Jan Di back to Jun Pyo become obvious as we watch him leave with a sad but resigned expression.

More lols come in the form of Jan Di and Jun Pyo’s date. Jun Pyo takes her golfing and I spent the entire time laughing at Jan Di’s fails and enthusiasm. She even manages to smack a bodyguard(?) in the head with her golf club after she sends it sailing through the air in what has to be the worst swing in history. The guard is casually carried off and Jan Di is not discouraged, hitting her ball into a sand pit and then into a pond. Jan Di is determined to retrieve the ball and despite it being the middle of winter with snow on the ground, she strips off her shoes and goes to follow the ball in. Jun Pyo has had enough at this point and carries her off to the approval of all present.

Honourable Mentions: This episode was sooooo full of awesome moments that I feel like barely any of it was covered. So quick props to…

  1. Yi Jung’s suprise-we’re-friends-again punch to Ji Hoo stomach. Boys are weird >.< but it made me smile at how simple it was for them to move on after everything was over.suprise punchfriends again
  2. Jan Di and Jun Pyo’s awkward car moment. It’s such cute young love, both of them have no idea what to do. And the almost kiss!! I felt like shoving their heads together and screaming “KISS GOD DAMMIT!!”awkward
  3. Jan Di avoiding Jun Pyo like the plague after their date and coffee with Ji Hoo, who looks so cutely confused when she runs off because Jun Pyo’s coming. He’s probably thinking ‘what the hell is going on with those two now!’.
  4. And finally, Jun Pyo comes to stay at Jan Di’s house…. that track suit is just tragic *shakes head* but he looks good in everything.

tragic tracksuit

Comments:

The swimming competition… well whilst tight swimming outfits are a complete OK with me, swimming caps and goggles, not so much. I have yet to see anyone on the face of this planet who looks good with a swimming cap on and if it didn’t happen here, I doubt it ever will.

I would also like to point out those dives… well since the drama never tries to pass F4 off as champion swimmers, I’ll let it pass but seriously O.O those were some of the worst dives I’ve ever seen. Watching with my mother had me cringing because the look she shot me was of  no surprise (my mother is a firm believer that most Asians can’t swim and watching dramas has yet to change her mind. Mind you, watching Bondi Rescue she may be onto something…) Ji Hoo did some weird leg flop thing and Yi Jung just flung himself into the water. I see many belly flops in their futures 😛

swimming 1
Jun Pyo shows just how considerate he can be and how much he cares when he sends the dinner to Jan Di’s parents after the restaurant debacle. He sees how much it means to her and acts. God if I had a man that good I would never let him go. Jun Pyo is just a big soft teddy bear under all the (hopefully) fake fur and bad hair 😀

Episode 9

Favourite Scenes:

Jan Di leaves the pools near the beginning of episode 9 to find Ji Hoo waiting for her. Ji Hoo is absolutely adorable as he gives Jan Di his beanie for her wet hair though I know others such as my best friend  got very annoyed with the man for still being so close with Jan Di after everything that had happened. I on the other hand see that their friendship has become something important to them both and even though Ji Hoo still has incredible feelings for Jan Di, he will not act on them again for the sake of her and his best friend. As she walks away we see that he still has her gloves which were left behind after their one and only date.

Beanie

One of Jun Pyo’s cutest moments is as he struggles with himself about calling Jan Di who he hasn’t seen since the date. When his phone suddenly rings, Jun Pyo is instructed by Yi Jung to play it cool and relax. However Jun Pyo answers Jan Di acting so overly cool and nonchalant that he pretends to not even remember who Jan Di is, leading to multiple facepalms amongst his friends. There really is no hope for this boy >.< He continues by informing Jan Di that he has been so busy that he “didn’t remember you haven’t called for 3 days 18 hours.” I can’t help but giggle at Yi Jung’s response to this with his “Hey man, woah, woah”. Jun Pyo on the other hand seems mighty proud of himself for turning down Jan Di’s request for a double date whilst Yi Jung seems pretty interested in knowing if it is Ga Eul going on this double date and even suggests he goes LOL.

After the disaster of the double date which Jun Pyo couldn’t keep himself away from and Jan Di and Ga Eul find out exactly what type of a guy Ga Eul’s date is (and Jan Di gives him one of her legendary kicks to the face) we find poor Ga Eul crying on the street. Yi Jung who happens to be passing at the time can’t seem to make himself ignore her and goes to make sure she is okay despite everything he is dealing with himself. His efforts don’t get him far however and I seriously died of laughter as he informed her she isn’t pretty when she cries. That’s just what a girl needs when she has been emotionally scarred by one male, to be told she isn’t pretty by another >.< Yi Jung, you fool! He suffers the consequences however as she cries even louder and people start to stare as he desperately begs her to stop crying whilst trying to assure those shooting him dirty looks that “it’s not me!”. Poor Yi Jung haha, he really doesn’t know what to do.

Ga Eul Crying 1 Ga Eul crying 2

Jan Di, after realising that Jun Pyo is not at fault for how the double date ended, goes to him to make a very embarrassed and reluctant apology. Seriously, I wish she would start to trust him more often and then these issues wouldn’t keep happening! However, as Jan Di enters the room, Jun Pyo doesn’t see her behind him and the mischievous Woo Bin and Ji Hoo lead Jun Pyo into a verbal trap, getting him to declare that he will not forgive her. *shakes head* these guys seriously make me laugh as they then tell Jan Di it’s no use. Jun Pyo finally realises she’s there as she goes to make an exit before stopping her. This is one of those awkward moments between the two teenagers which is just adorable. The apple apology is an adorable play on words and so is how flustered Jun Pyo gets as Jan Di ‘grants’ his three wishes. It another moment of laughs as Ji Hoo eats Jun Pyo’s ‘apology’. I love how easy it is for Jun Pyo’s friends to wind him up. The guy really is too easy 😀

Apple

The final moment I chose from this episode is the first kiss between Jun Pyo and Jan Di in the park of lights. I simply thought this was cute and romantic and helps Jun Pyo to realise that it isn’t the cost of things that matter, it’s the thought behind them as Jan Di struggles for words. Jun Pyo is obviously pleased with this and we finally get to see more of Jun Pyo’s traumatic childhood and the loneliness he suffered as a child, explaining why he loves spending time with her family so much. Just makes you want to hug the boy, because that is actually what he seems like at times; a small vulnerable child.

Park lights Play ground lights

Comments:

Jan Di’s family despite being poor are extremely happy  and enjoy (most) of their time together. During Jun Pyo’s time with them they make kimchi, visit the public baths/sauna, eat meals together and share street food. There are times during these scenes that remind me of my own family and make me smile 😀 Though mind you, my family do not sit around the table for breakfast, it’s usually grabbing toast as we run out the door for work/class or missing breakfast all together because I’ll be honest with you, sleep is sooo more important than breakfast >.< but anyway Yay for the emphasis on family relations in this drama.

Family breakfast

Eating intestines on the double date… I agree with Jun Pyo wholeheartedly BLEHHHH!!! *feels queasy* The whole time I was like “Don’t do it. DON’T YOU DARE DO IT!…. NOOOOO” >.< Just ain’t my cup of tea *shudders*

Finally, we learn a bit more about  the life of Yi Jung and the absolutely screwed up family he comes from. HIS FATHER IS A REAL PIECE OF WORK! and his mother cares nothing for her son in my opinion. No wonder he’s the play he is. The poor boy *hugs* I seriously felt like I had been punched in the gut seeing my poor smiley-guy all sad T_T

Episode 10

Favourite Scenes:

You can’t talk about this episode without mentioning the little side story between Yi Jung and Ga Eul and how he helps her get revenge against the crappy guy who hurt her. I can forgive the corny saxophone part because Yi Jung simply melts my heart at he coaches Ga Eul through it all after giving her an awesome makeover. Where’s the guy who will dress me up in gorgeous dresses and pay for my hair and makeup to be professionally done?? Apparently in Korean drama-land. Seriously though, she looks stunning. Ga Eul declares she doesn’t know the skeezy bastard to his utter shock *fist pumps* and Yi Jung announces to the entire club that she is the one who has stolen his heart. Man, he doesn’t do anything by halfs, does he? He proves this further by insisting they continue the act awhile longer as they walk home and he wraps his scarf around her neck. Fluffiness to the extreme and the hint of a new beginning.

 Club ga eul yi jungGa Eul Yi Jung scarf

Next we have a little romance between Jun Pyo and Jan Di as she presents him with the valentines chocolates and he is so immensely pleased that you can’t help but love the guy just that little bit more… if it’s even possible at this point. He won’t even share them with Jan Di so later on when Ji Hoo takes a bite out of one, I died of laughter at Jun Pyo’s reaction. That adorable little part with Jun Pyo calling Ji Hoo from outside his house only  to realise Ji Hoo is standing right there watching him is also a moment to make you smile  because GAH I LOVE THEIR FRIENDSHIP!!

Ji Hoo Chocolates

Once again the power of family as Jan Di’s mother sticks it to bitch-mama as she tips the bowl of salt(?) over her head after the HORRID woman calls her daughter a weed and offers them money to stay away from her son. I totally did a fist pump at this moment even if she did ruin it moments later by declaring they could get a lot more money if Jan Di married Jun Pyo *facepalm*.

Salt

Short by sweet, Ji Hoo declares himself Jan Di’s fireman. One of my favourite moments in the entire drama.Jan Di: When ever the emergency bell in my heart starts to ring, you always appear sunbae.
Ji Hoo: Bell? Like a fire alarm? Then make me it. Geum Jan Di’s honourable firefighter.”
I personally think Ji Hoo would make one damn sexy fireman.

Finally is the scene when Jan Di gets embarrassed as her family is caught selling food on the side of the road (after bitch-face mother destroys their buisness GRRRRR) and despite being ordered by his mother not to go after her, Jun Pyo gets from the car and plants one right on her lips *celebrates* YAY, GO JUN PYO!!! This is how a man should be, not on his mother’s leash!

road sideroad side kiss

Comments: 

Oh Yi Jung, you were doing so well and then you had to go and ruin it with your player ways! Poor Ga Eul has obviously started to like the guy (what  a hard and bumpy road that is going to be) and he embarresses her in a heartless way as he plays around with two girls who are so not as pretty as Ga Eul. She leaves upset AS ANY GIRL WOULD! and he chases her only to say “this is why nice girls are annoying” before taking the chocolates. Personally I’d smack him over the head with the chocolates and show him just how ‘nice’ I was but Ga Eul is far too gentle for this.

Yi Jung  assGa Eul chocolates

Ji Hoo meets Jan Di at one of her many new jobs and worries about her as she shows signs of exhaustion with her nose starting to bleed *_* I think this part is once again an example of exactly how much Ji Hoo cares for her as he expresses that he is envious of Jun Pyo. The poor boy likes to torture himself.

Jan Di nose bleedJan Di bleed

Episode 11

Favourite Scenes:

Jan Di has grown close to a new guy (Ha Je / Jae Ha played by Jung Eui Chul) who she finds she can relate to and who is helping her get work. To avoid explaining this to Jun Pyo, she lies to him about why she doesn’t want to go to Japan, claiming it is Ga Eul’s birthday and stating her friend is more important. However, it is poor Yi Jung who is fooled by this lie and he embarrasses himself by going off to buy Ga Eul flowers and an elaborate cake only to present them to her and receive confusion in return *facepalm* aaaawkwaaaaaard! I feel bad for the guy truly but he totally had it coming after the stunt he pulled in the last episode. SUFFER!!

Ga Eul bday

Once again we get to see more of Jun Pyo and Ji Hoo’s  adorable friendship fast becoming one of my favourite things about the drama as Jun Pyospends the night at Ji Hoo’s whinging and whining about Jan Di much to Ji Hoo’s amusement. Ji Hoo even tucks him into bed once the whinging man has fallen to sleep ^_^

JP sleep

Jun Pyo finds out about Jae Ha and cue massive fight. Jun Pyo beats the shit out of Jae Ha as the manipulative man taunts him. Jan Di eventually declares she has had enough… of everything to do with F4 (LIKE WHAT?!) and Jun Pyo leaves followed closely by the rest of F4 with Ji Hoo throwing Jan Di a look as he passes because really, he had warned her and he did everything to help these two get it together and now she is throwing it all away for some guy she barely knows. *beat Jan Di round the head for being so bloody frustrating* a little communication at this point would go a long way but noooooo.

Jae Ha beaten

After the Red F4 card fiasco and everything that comes with it, Jae Ha takes an unconscious Jan Di back to his home and places her in his bed. He goes in for a kiss because he is that much of a creep but is distracted by a phone call and all is revealed. Slimey good for nothing butt face is in cahoots with the evil mother and we see a picture of him and his identical (played by the same actor) brother.

Jae Ha brother

Jae Ha then reveals just how bloody  crazy he is to Jan Di but also reveals just how attached he has grown to her as he tries to get her to give up on Jan Di who now chooses to have faith in Jun Pyo and deny that he would ever hurt her. Jae Ha hugs Jan Di as he declares they understand each other and come from the same world but is slapped as he tries to kiss her. Jan Di makes for the door but is knocked out by Jae Ha with chloroform. This guy is simply coo-coo.

Jae ha kiss Chloroform

 

Comments:

When Jan Di goes to model the first time, I question how she is not instantly alarmed or suspicious. If the location didn’t give it away, alarm bells would have been screaming in my head at the creepy blindfolded teddy bears and the not-so-subtly creepy men.

Freaky modelling

Despite hating the evil  model/student Jae Ha that befriends Jan Di to get to Jun Pyo, you have to feel for him and his reasons behind his intentions. He is obviously very close with his brother and when we learn that his brother is the boy that Jan Di saved in the first episode as he tried to commit suicide, you are able to finally understand him and perhaps sympathise. He is crazy as hell but he does it out of love. I know if somebody had done that to my brother or sister, I wouldn’t have had the patience to do what he did, I probably would have gone after them that day with a gun… I’m not crazy >.> It is also cute that his brother had continued to talk about Jan Di after that day. I feel like F4 never really admit to the extreme damage they have caused to others through their childish past.

When the members of F4 realise that both Jan Di and Jun Pyo are missing, they begin a frantic search and one thing that baffles me is the phone call Ji Hoo makes… on his motorbike… with his helmet on…. HOW THE HELL CAN HE HEAR ANYTHING? I need this explained. My aunt use to ride a motorbike and I’m pretty sure you could not hear the phone through the helmet.

Ji Hoo helmet phone

Episode 12

Favourite Scenes:

Jun Pyo, despite how mad he is at Jan Di or how much she has hurt him, still cares for her because he is just an awesome guy and comes to her rescue only to get his ass kicked as he refuses to fight back whilst Jan Di sits tied to a chair and screaming.
“I don’t want to die but it can’t be helped if you kill me.”
Jae Ha and his thugs attempt to take a chair too Jun Pyo and at this point Jan Di jumps forward to protect him. Can no one in Korea tie someone up properly? I suppose it’s not really something you want many people to be able to do but why, if she wasn’t tied to the chair properly, did she wait for this moment to jump forward. The drama of it, I suppose. Jun Pyo  holds her unconscious form and F4 finally come to the rescue and KICK ASS! I love the differences in their fighting styles, Yi Jung is almost dignified as he fights whilst Ji Hoo doesn’t actually throw punches but takes those suckers down. Jun Pyo all the while refuses to release Jan Di’s unconscious form.

Jun Pyo rescuee Jun Pyo protect

 

The F4 take Jan Di and Ga Eul on a ski trip and… Ji Hoo is such a loner >.< We knew previously that he enjoyed his quiet alone time but seriously, who sits reading when there is skiing to be enjoyed? Jun Pyo and Jan Di are obviously having fun and it’s good to see them enjoying themselves and still squabbling.

Skiing

Yi Jung saves Ga Eul from a wayward snow boarder and it is simply adorable despite the cheesiness of it because HA Yi Jung you so totally care!! It’s adorable.
Yi Jung Ga Eul
Jun Pyo climbs the mountain to save Jan Di after yet another misunderstanding between the two >.< DEAR LORD WORK IT OUT PEOPLE! but he once again comes to the rescue when he hears she has gone up the mountain in a blizzard to find the necklace he gave her. At least she is showing how much she cares these days. The two of them end up in a wood cabin to take shelter from the storm and they strip their wet clothes off and snuggle for warmth *drools over Jun Pyo* Meanwhile all their friends are concerned as they fail to return with Ji Hoo even declaring he is going after them only to be stopped by the others. When he finds out that the mean threesome; Ginger, Sunny and Miranda are responsible for the whole mess and we see just how angry Ji Hoo gets when people mess with the people he cares about.

Wood Cabin Kiss

Jan Di makes Jun Pyo a luch box upon their return and prepares for their date. She sits waiting and reminiscing with a smile for Jun Pyo whilst we see that the news is reporting that Jun Pyo’s father is in a critical condition. Ji Hoo shows up to pick up Jan Di and rushes her to the airport to try and see Jun Pyo before he flies overseas for the company and his father. They don’t make it in time and my heart aches for her as she cries that she hadn’t had a chance to tell Jun Pyo how she feels whilst Ji Hoo holds her. Jun Pyo from the plane sends her a text “I’ll be back soon, wait for me.”

Honourable Mention:

The Hospital scene between Jan Di and Jun Pyo as Jun Pyo declares that he would rather all of his ribs broken than a single finger of Jan Di’s. He then chastises her for jumping in when “I was purposely getting beaten to death”. The scene ends with Ji Hoo standing outside Jan Di’s hospital room with flowers listening to them arguing before smiling and leaving the flowers outside the door. T_T I still feel the pain of Ji Hoo’s loss!

Comments:

We see how much Jan Di’s father cares for her after he tells her it’s okay to take the money back that her mother excepted after her father was taken by loan sharks (talk about bad bloody luck). He really is a soft character who wants the best for his children and he knows how much Jan Di has started to care for Jun Pyo.

Ji Hoo is just a Guardian Angel in this drama as he helps Jan Di numerous times this episode. It can’t be easy for him either, makes me totally wince at times in pity for him. He assures Jan Di after her meeting with the evil frog faced mother, appearing with a “You called 911, I came to put out the fire” which I absolutely love. He helps set up the chance for Jun Pyo to give the necklace to Jan Di which is adorable because Jun Pyo was in serious trouble if he was going to insist on calling the thing a collar *shakes head* and abviously the rest of F4 were concerned about this as well, winding him up as they often do. He is also the one who returns the necklace to the couple and essentially hands Jan Di to Jun Pyo all over again after the evil threesome steal it.

 Necklace

Finally, the adorable bromance which raises it’s head numerous times throughout the drama and almost has me rooting for them to get together if I didn’t love Ga Eul so much because really, Woo Bin needs somebody! At the ski resort we see the two of them heading to the slopes and walking with their hands around each other, touching each others neck and back…. weird vibes going on here, I’m telling you.

Bromance

  1. Hi there! I am Canadian and recently started watching this drama on netflix. Its from 2009 so I couldnt really find anyone who currently had an opinion on it. Im only up to episode 11 but THANK GOD FOR YOU. Haha its a relief and tons of laughs to realize im not the only one sitting at home fan girlng over this stuff haha! I had some big questions and was confused with some of the relationship/dating/contest/whoswithwhonow flip flopping. Your comments really helped me see things clearer and understand the writers and the story better!

    • Hi, I am so glad you enjoyed and found this useful! 😀 Thank you for commenting as I didn’t think anyone actually read these and had kind of fallen into a slump. However, your comment has given me some motivation and I am now finishing part four. I hope you will stick around to read it 😀

      • I will, I even bookmarked your page! Im new to the whole Korean drama world, I look forward to reading more 🙂 Youre a really amazing writer I hope you know that, you set it up really well!!

  2. Hi there. I enjoy your pieces on BOF so much! I like your writing style, precise and cute. You have explained clearly many points I didn’t get so now I’m off for watching it the second time. See how inspiring you are? 🙂 Can’t wait for your next part on BOF.

    Just another thing. Jun Pyo and Lee Min Ho slowly grew on me too and I totally root for him!
