Okay, I can probably die happy now if a giant meteor slammed into Earth tomorrow morning and we are all toast. I’m sure that’s a gross exaggeration, but I’m nowhere near capturing the happiness of seeing the latest official stills and more from Nice Guy episode 12, which is clearly a flashback to the missing period during the time jump from when Maru took Eun Gi away to when they returned to Tae San and gave Jae Hee the proverbial giant middle finger. What’s amazing about the NG directorial flourish of using the unfinished narrative is that we’re almost always guaranteed more goodness after the fact. There are always scenes we don’t see and are shown later, so I never feel like the transitions between scenes are awkward or something is left unfinished. I’m almost certain that the location where Maru stashed Eun Gi to help her recovery is Anmyungdo (site of one of my biggest heartaches courtesy of The King 2 Hearts), the place where I bitched to no end where Jae Gil took Choco to keep her from seeing how badly Maru was beat up by Jae Hee’s goons. I still think overall Jae Gil and Choco are pretty superfluous to the plot, and that interlude is hella random, but at least there is some narrative consistency if that is where Eun Gi ends up convalescing with Maru by his side. What’s so sweet is thinking of the four of them as some sort of happy broken family, rather like what Maru had dreamed about with Jae Hee, but the person to make it happen is Eun Gi. The accompanying news article writes that the location of their beach and countryside dates shows the start of Maru and Eun Gi’s love story.
