Sorry if it appeared I’ve suddenly leapt off the Queen In Hyun’s Man runaway train what with the radio silence in the last few days. I was vacationing and for some reason I wasn’t in a rush to watch episode 12. Despite loving episode 11 when I watched it, something felt off afterwards. After I watched episode 12, I finally realized what it was. Boong Do appears to have a general personality shift, one that is quite a leap from his Joseon educated ways. I love seeing romantic moments between the OTP, but the post-memory-lost-regained-his-memory Boong Do seems to be a different guy almost, with all the same gentlemanly mannerisms and his intelligence intact, but very forward with Hee Jin in a way that feels abrupt. Don’t have to agree with me, since his personality change has resulted in massive amounts of fan service on the romance front for the OTP. Which really leads me to my biggest gripe about episode 12 – it was a cute episode where nothing happened other than Boong Do and Hee Jin spending time together in their usual sweet ways. I still adore QIHM and this drama is leaps above the other two I watched this weekend, but I hope it regains its footing and gets back on track with the storytelling rather than subsisting on the cute.
