[HanCinema’s Drama Review] ‘Our Beloved Summer’ Episode 9 @ HanCinema

The trip to the country ends abruptly without any explanation. Well, we finally get an explanation. At about seventeen minutes, a secondary character explains to another secondary character that the reason everyone left the country house was because Wong and Yoon Soo had just escaped. I seem to remember that the whole point of taking them to the country house is that they cannot leave so easily. So much for this.

The framing device of placing Woong and Yeon-soo’s relationship in the context of the documentary still causes more problems than it solves. It is also almost always completely irrelevant. Woong and Yeon-soo can meet each other on their own without even trying. Somewhat unexpectedly, the documentary is more of an excuse for Ji-woong to meet Woong and Yeon-soo, a fact commented on here.

But Ji-woong, as a character, is no more useful than the documentary itself. His presence as a third wheel actually undermines one of the main compelling aspects of Woong and Yeon-soo’s relationship. He is their friend. He keeps telling us that Woong and Yeon-soo don’t really have friends. They are both reclusive for completely different reasons, leading to completely different lifestyles, and are often awkward in their interactions with the other characters.

“Our beloved summer” It has always been marked by a lot of questionable editing. But this episode was a unique annoyance for me because the main relationship became repetitive. Despite the drama’s kiss, Woong Yeon-soo refuses for reasons that aren’t entirely clear, but agrees to her request that you two be just friends. Why Woong Yeon-soo refuses, or agrees to be friends, is not entirely clear. We’re supposed to find out the next episode – but the way this information is withheld seems arbitrary. So it will all be a strange misunderstanding.

I would be wrong. The hints we’ve been getting that Woong might take NJ’s cute attempts seriously is intriguing. But NJ has been so far apart from the other characters on the show, and hasn’t talked so much with Woong, that nothing about that development seems plausible. What’s especially annoying is this screenwriter Lee Nayun I It would have given them more organic opportunities to talk to each other easily. Woong and NJ are both celebrities, albeit in completely different subcultures. It’s annoying how even though all of these characters have interesting careers, nothing is done about it in the actual story.
