[HanCinema’s Drama Review] ‘Our Beloved Summer’ Episode 13 @ HanCinema

So Woong and Yeon-soo are back together again. In a cute sequence, quite representative of the kinds of things that people with no relationship experience would do, we see Yeon-soo consulting outside sources on how to avoid more drama with Woong. All the advice is terrible, mainly because Yeon-soo doesn’t understand what makes her attractive. She is prickly and resolute and constantly challenges Wong, forcing him to break out of his natural shell. This quality is what Woong has always drawn to her.

Ignorance is nice, but horribly misplaced. Yeon-soo may lack serial dating experience, but she has been in a long-term relationship with Woong for five years. The only reason this relationship ended was because Eun-Su was afraid of dragging him into her personal family drama, because she thought it would make him miserable and resentful. Yeon-soo’s thinking wasn’t necessarily bad – but five years later, with the family drama long unresolved, she really owes him an explanation.

At the end of this episode only Woong repeated this request. She was frustrated that Eun-Soo didn’t explain it on her own – keeping a secret puts much more pressure on their relationship than the normal dynamic of mutual arousal. But her inexplicable hesitation makes perfect sense in the context of this drama’s bigger problem of constantly stalling for time. There is simply not much plot left to fill in the remaining episodes, because every possible conflict is suddenly resolved.

Remember when the production of the documentary was so backward that they kidnapped Wong and Yeon Soo and dragged them into the country, then managed to escape without the crew getting much useful shots? Well, as far as I can tell, Sol-i is the main star of the documentary right now. We keep getting clips of her talking about Woong and Yeon-soo, with some pointers as to what the overall structure is.

“Cha-Cha-Cha’s hometown” It also dropped the show’s diverse subplot in a similarly inexplicable way. But at least I understood what that show was all about on the show, even if we hardly ever watched it. The brief story we get about Eun Ho pissed off about Seul Ae going out on a cute date, with a clear beginning, middle, and end. This is such a low level but “Our beloved summer” Constantly fails to make it happen. This show is just a bunch of nice snippets out of context with little to no overall narrative or topic.
