The last of the moments forever impressioned on my mind! Let me know some of yours!
Innocent Man (Episode 9)- “Point of No Return”
Yes, I too was fascinated with the tunnel scene where our two extremely dysfunction individuals decide it’s better to die/suicide/murder?/doublesuicide. Coming from a harsh breakup where Maru basically tells Eun-Ki that he had never loved her and that it was all for show to win back Jae Hee (her hated stepmother who pushed her real mother out of the household). However, we don’t know if he is just manipulating her feelings, but we are quite sure he wants her to stay away from him and his not so nice deeds. Meanwhile, Eun-Ki receives a message that her father is now dead (courtesy of Jae Hee + Lawyer). Our two crazies happen to be driving in the same tunnel and see each other. They drive headlong into each other, not caring about their lives. We end with an amnesiac Eun-Ki who lost most her cognitive ability to be nursed back to health by Maru who refuses to get surgery for that huge bleed in his brain.
Original Title: 학교 2013
Country: South Korea
Channel: KBS 2
Theme: Friendship, Slice of Life
Plot: School 2013 brings back the fleeting memories of one’s high school days and makes you wish that teachers cared about their students as much as they do in this drama. The drama is akin to a puzzle, each of the pieces are characters who need each other to become whole. Like a puzzle piece, each character has jagged edges that are looking for a counterpart to fit in with. The drama starts out with Go Nam Soon, played by Lee Jong-Suk, who seemed to be on the low end of the social hierarchy at Seungri High. Bullied at school everyday by the Terrible Three, he never seems to fight back and just takes it with a grain of salt. Sleeping through classes, and generally just ignoring the others seemed to be a daily routine for him. Meanwhile, two teachers, Jung In Jae and Kang Se Chan, who seemed to be on the opposites sides of teaching attitudes are trying to find their place at the school and in Nam Soon’s class. In Jae, a sweet young teacher, tries to care about each and everyone of the students. Meanwhile, Se Chan seemed jaded, a “it’s your life” type. One day, the school gets turned upside down when a transfer student, Heung Soo, arrives. It was the wakeup call that Nam Soon was waiting for. With their dark troubled past, Nam Soon and Heung Soo were at odds with each other immediately.
