Perfection, thy name is The King 2 Hearts. What I love about watching the pas-des-deux between Hang Ah and Jae Ha is how there are no misunderstandings of the lame variety. No obstacles for the sake of manufacturing angst. They are genuinely confused about their feelings for each other – neither is what the other wants in a significant other, plus the whole North Korean intelligence officer and South Korean prince thing is a pretty big hurdle to cross. But what I love even more is that the drama lets them talk to each other, as opposed to lots of staring and moping. Sometimes they don’t say what they mean, but when push comes to shove, they do what their heart tells them.
Enjoy this little treat until the recap proper arrives. I’ve also seen some confusion about the hug scene (the spoiler pictures from earlier) – it really happened despite the jarring editing, which is why Jae Ha was pretty shook up the next day. He can’t handle it when Hang Ah is actually vulnerable and caring towards him. And finally, since I’ve been there many times, just wanted to tell fans of TK2H to stop worrying about the ratings dropping or other dramas overtaking it. This drama is almost impossible to market, and doesn’t ever capture it’s depth and emotional range. Let’s just enjoy it and be happy something came along that works so cohesively.
