The C-netizens got their hands on the shooting script for episode 7 of the YT edition of Playful Kiss. Those of you who don’t want to be spoiled, do not proceed any further. I won’t even express a single opinion until after the jump so as to not spoil this episode. Please take this with the usual grain of salt. I have no independent verification this is indeed the actual leaked script, though it appears highly credible.
It ends with a kiss, guys. Rather apropos since the TW-version was called It Started With A Kiss. No boating, no steamier scenes as most human beings would equate with that definition. Just a kiss. I’m not going to translate the dialogue word-for-word, but rather summarize the episode based on the spoilers.
Ha Ni’s birthday arrives, and everyone is excited for her, including the birthday girl herself. Seung Jo acts all dispassionate and pretends not to know the significance of the day to both Ha Ni and Mom. After Ha Ni thinks that he has forgotten her birthday, and runs off again in a fit of sadness, it turns out that Seung Jo had planned a present for her – a flower and a kiss.
Now, perhaps a boat scene will be added at the end, since it requires NO dialogue. But the leaked script leads me to think Group 8 will end the drama on the same whimsical sweet note it started the entire series off with. Alas, I hope I didn’t ruin everyone’s weekend. I’m pretty depressed, but I have found my newest drama crack(s) – a double helping of M3 and Secret Garden – to ease my disappointment. PK and Kim Hyun Joong, why’d you raise my hopes up only to squash it. I’d rather you not say anything at all about what to expect. Sigh, I still love you to pieces, you know that right?
I have never wanted so badly to be wrong in my entire life. I’d rather be the bearer of false new in this instance. No matter what happens though, I’m still happy with everything PK gave me, and my enjoyment of it shant be affected one whit. It was just the cutest, sweetest, little drama.
