Kim Young Dae and Pyo Ye Jin proceed to utterly kill it in each timelines, distinguishing their characters such that Do Ha (Kim Younger Dae) in Han Jun Oh’s physique feels perceptibly totally different, and astute and succesful Kang Younger Hwa (Pyo Ye Jin) feels markedly separate from Ha Ri Ta’s drive and desperation. The villains are establishing some nasty stuff within the background, which is why it is sensible for Do Ha’s secret to come back out at this juncture and for Younger Hwa to lastly witness the reality behind the person who haunts her desires. Right here’s each time Do Ha provides Younger Hwa the reality this week!
Warning: spoilers for episodes 5-6 and the manhwa “Moon within the Day” beneath.
1. When he recreated scenes from their previous
The destruction of Younger Hwa’s protecting bracelet when she was hit by Goo Tae Joo’s (Jung Heon’s) automobile appears to have opened some kind of door to her reminiscences of her previous life as Ri Ta. Apparently, she doesn’t keep in mind all 18 of her previous lives. It’s solely Ri Ta’s life that her soul remains to be clinging to. Like Younger Hwa, Ri Ta was a warmhearted individual, who regardless of her vendetta towards Do Ha, couldn’t assist however really feel for him. She noticed how he was little greater than a weapon of struggle utilized by his father and the king to kill whomever they needed. He had no life and no actual alternative of his personal. What’s worse, regardless of how little he cares for residing, he’s by no means chilly or harsh or abusive. As a substitute, he lights up her path with candles when she slips and falls at nighttime. She is aware of he sees her anger as justified, and it’s inconceivable to not look after a person like that.
It begins together with her recommending herbs for his insomnia, and naturally, he reveals up the following day with lotus seeds for her as a result of they remind him of her. The thick outer layer of the seed must be pierced to ensure that the plant to develop and bloom. He hopes that she is going to too. They guess on in the event that they’ll be alive when nature cracks the shell’s exterior to bloom these seeds. Ri Ta thinks they’ll by no means bloom. Do Ha bets that they are going to, even when it takes over a thousand years. And in modern-day Korea, Do Ha and Younger Hwa take heed to a information report about Silla-era lotus flowers blooming, and Do Ha thinks that he gained. However Younger Hwa says out loud that she misplaced.
Do Ha freezes in realization that she one way or the other has begun to recollect their previous. His suspicion is confirmed when he finds her studying books about dream interpretation. He begins to recreate scenes from their previous, lighting her approach when she stumbles at nighttime identical to he did earlier than. Younger Hwa doesn’t understand what he’s doing and simply looks like she’s in a everlasting state of deja vu. That, plus her historical past of visions, has her terrified she’s going insane. Particularly when Do Ha calls her out on it.
2. When he confronted her on dreaming of him
At this level, Younger Hwa looks like she’s residing with a foot in two worlds, and Do Ha/Jun Oh is the one fixed in every. She will be able to’t inform if she’s obsessive about him sufficient to be dreaming of him or whether or not there’s simply one thing improper together with her head to conjure these detailed emotional visions. She’s unnerved and attempting to be strictly skilled with Jun Oh whereas having all these huge emotions for Do Ha. He notices that she’s shying away and calls her out, asking if she desires of him by any probability. He says that she’s been calling him naeuri, or “my lord,” for the reason that accident, and Younger Hwa simply stammers excuses and races off. However Do Ha isn’t so simply prevented.
3. When he appeared earlier than her as Do Ha
Monk Hae In (Shin Yu Ro) is terrified that Do Ha means Younger Hwa hurt and continues to attempt to defend her from the sidelines. Armed with a talisman from the top monk (Lee Younger Suk), he sneaks into Do Ha’s company and slaps the talisman on him earlier than Younger Hwa. She thinks he’s loopy and shoves him out, however the talisman has completed its job. Inside minutes, Jun Oh collapses and loses his pulse. Younger Hwa’s terrified however performs CPR, solely to freeze when a well-known determine seems earlier than her. He’s very clearly a ghost and really clearly not Jun Oh. It’s Do Ha.
Can I simply say how a lot I like how sorrowful Do Ha’s eyes at all times are? He’s simply stunning.
Younger Hwa understandably panics. She simply freezes there, even when Do Ha returns to Jun Oh’s physique and goes house and collapses. All her repressed childhood reminiscences of the ghost in darkish purple robes following her come again to the floor, and she or he huddles in concern. Even a go to to the physician doesn’t assist as a result of the physician dismisses her story as hallucinations and places her on medicine. However the wonderful thing about Do Ha is that he isn’t about to let issues lie as they’re, so he involves make clear the reality.
4. When he revealed that he wasn’t Jun Oh
Do Ha heads to the monks who interfered and makes two issues clear: one, sure, he’s a robust vengeful ghost who can destroy them if he needs. Two, he’s solely right here to do what he must do in an effort to be freed from this world. In the event that they intrude once more, he’ll not be happy. The pinnacle monk astutely factors out that hurrying his mission may not assist him although. There are lingering emotions retaining him to this world. And in the event that they go unresolved, his ties would possibly stay. Do Ha dismisses this. He spends the remainder of the day following Younger Hwa to be sure that she’s okay after seeing him as a ghost however nonetheless dismisses this! Even when he finds her useless drunk and delays killing her, he justifies it by telling himself that he’s simply interested in why he died. Okay, Do Ha.
The way in which he appears at her. And he thinks he has no lingering emotions!
He comes out with the reality right away. He isn’t Jun Oh and is possessing him. Solely, Younger Hwa’s drunk out of her thoughts and not likely listening. She’s extra centered on resolving to by no means dream once more and to stay in the true world. It’s value noting that Do Ha by no means takes the selection from her right here. He doesn’t pressure her to listen to him out and waits for her to recollect what he’s mentioned and put all of it collectively. Younger Hwa’s fairly sensible, so it solely takes a day.
5. When he demonstrated that he was a vengeful ghost
Pyo Ye Jin is simply beautiful.
Her hangover is guilty for her not remembering what he mentioned the following morning. And Jung Yi Seul’s (Jung Shin Hye’s) announcement that she and Jun Oh are relationship is guilty for her not remembering what he mentioned the following afternoon. Do Ha is visibly sick of Yi Seul and continually reveals Younger Hwa that he has no curiosity, however Younger Hwa hates herself for even being harm on condition that every thing she’s feeling is for Do Ha, who “doesn’t exist,” and never for Jun Oh. She actually packs up and leaves Jun Oh’s house to get her head collectively, and it isn’t till night when she registers what Jun Oh mentioned about him not being Jun Oh. She races off to seek out monk Hae In and goes to the temple, which she acknowledges as the identical one her father took her to after they had been looking for a method to cease her seeing ghosts.
The pinnacle monk doesn’t inform Younger Hwa every thing however advises that her soul will need to have some lingering emotions which might be evoking reminiscences of this explicit previous life. Apparently, the bracelet that protected her all these years was made with a lotus seed (which was shattered through the automobile accident). The pinnacle monk provides that he was not the one who made that protecting talisman. So, who did? Younger Hwa leaves with a head filled with questions and calls the one individual with solutions: Jun Oh. He is aware of that is their second of reality and heads out to fulfill her on a bridge. She’s incredulous at first, considering that he was joking that none of this may be actual, however he turns all the bridge’s lights on and off and admits that he’s been haunting her for millennia, not out of alternative. And solely she will be able to break that curse. When she asks why, he doesn’t reveal that she killed him however provides her one thing extra heartbreaking: as a result of she was his spouse.
Ahh! They had been married!
We see the day of their marriage the place Do Ha items Ri Ta with a necklace of lotus seeds afterwards to guard her from all evil on this planet. They’re the identical seeds that had been in Younger Hwa’s bracelet. And whereas Ri Ta appears anxious on her marriage ceremony day, Do Ha appeared like a person able to die for her.
That is heartbreaking. No marvel Do Ha’s soul can’t transfer on. He doesn’t perceive why she killed him. They seem to have been previous what he did. An honorable point out second on this episode was when Lord So Ri Bu (Lee Kyung Young), Do Ha’s adopted father, guessed that Ri Ta was the useless Gaya normal’s daughter and had her framed for theft and tortured. Do Ha risked every thing: his life, his responsibility to Silla, and his responsibility to So Ri Bu to free her and assist her escape again to Gaya. Ri Ta’s visibly terrified for him and is aware of he’ll be severely punished upon returning, and their vows to one another to outlive maintain new which means as does her vow to come back again for him. There was one thing highly effective constructing there, they usually each acknowledged it. It’s no marvel he doesn’t perceive why she killed him.
Subsequent week hints at So Ri Bu making his transfer whereas possessing Seok Chul Hwan (Jung Woong In). He’s framed Jun Oh’s company lawyer Lawyer Go (Lee Joon Hyuk) for Goo Tae Joo’s loss of life and is probably going going to carry it over Go in an effort to spoil Jun Oh/Do Ha. Han Min Oh (On Joo Wan) can also be suspecting one thing off about Jun Oh. However Do Ha and Younger Hwa stay the center and soul of this present because it seems to hurtle towards tragedy. Is there any approach of stopping Do Ha from dying and for him to lastly stay a lifetime of his personal selecting within the twenty first century? The drama has modified up so much from the supply manhwa. Can it additionally alter the manhwa’s heartbreaking ending? I’m hopeful and terrified.
