Oh how I love this episode. Couldn’t ALL of the episodes have been about these two? I usually try to pick scenes based on the fact that they would translate well into a quick watercolor (which usually means some bright colors, and certain types of lighting) but I completely threw out all rationale when I chose these ones. For some reason I’ve always remembered both these shots very clearly, partially because they’re well composed, and partially because of the emotional content. I don’t care if they were bad choices; sometimes I just can’t resist!
For those that can’t remember, this is the episode where Jong Ha and Yoon Hee are trying to protect an injured Jae Shin from being discovered as the Red Messenger (Jong Ha is adorable in this episode!). I love that Yoon Hee and Jae Shin are hiding in the cupboard behind a curtain behind a pile of risque literature behind a screen behind a smooth-talking Jong Ha (phew). Later in the episode everyone at school starts thinking that JS and YH are a gay couple, and the way JS handles it is perfect in every way (as is everything he does). I particularly found it amusing he started hugging other guys to make the point that guys can hug.
It wasn’t really planned, but I feel like these images actually complement each other quite well because one has YH protecting JS, and the other has JS protecting YH (in his own way). The first picture (which comes second in the episode) is right before he takes her up in his tree. I really want to build a time machine so I can go back and force the writers to let JS get the girl.
Anyways…now I’m heartbroken. At least YFFM should be happy this week!
