So I realize that I like my men angsty and in need of catharsis. Just putting it out there….
Not that I don’t like them full of joy, but I guess the angsty scenes just hit me harder, I suppose.
And wow, I never realized how much time it takes me to refind all these scenes!
Autumn’s Concerto (Episode 23) – “All The Lies”
The moment that comes where all truth is revealed and Mu Chen must come clean to GuangXi as he remembers everything of his past previous to his brain operation. Having fallen deeply in love with GuangXi, painfully leaving him so that he can receive the best brain surgery, having his child, and then pretending not to know him has taken a huge toll on GuangXi’s psyche. He is so furious and in so much pain because he can’t trust his memories, his past, and now his future. He left his fiance who he was going to marry before, needing to hash out his past. He had almost rekindled their love even with his memories not intact, feeling the familiarity.He doesn’t know that Mu Chen loves him still desperately, and believes everyone was watching him as a fool. He believes that she left him because of his surgery and that she loves Tao Ye. The point that really hit him hard was that Mu Chen had his son call him uncle even though he was his father. He vows to get his son’s custody and to cause Mu Chen the utmost misery. He can’t forgive Mu Chen for deceiving him so heavily. Although this scene is obviously the highlight of the drama, it gives me a sense of catharsis as everything comes clean so that the relationship can rebuild. Even though it seems like they will never heal, sometimes it takes an ugly break to grow back even stronger.
