Sang Yeob phone home, Sang Yeob phone home. You can call noona anytime, baby cheeks! I’m woefully negligent of Lee Sang Yeob’s sweet and effective turn as lawyer Park Joon Ha in Nice Guy, prolly because he’s so decent and doesn’t have a Noah’s Arc full of issues the way Maru, Eun Gi, Jae Hee, and even lawyer Ahn all appear to be dealing with. In a drama full of truly dysfunctional people, he’s both a breath of fresh air as well as easy to overlook because we’re captivated by the pain and bad behavior all around. I do wonder why episode 1 had Eun Gi assuming Joon Ha is gay, because he clearly has feelings of some sort for Eun Gi, but its not clear if those are romantic or just platonic. I see Lee Kyung Hee dropping a few throwaway threads as her story progresses, yet she also manages to pull back in many seemingly unimportant facts for use later. The written spoilers for episode 15 tells us that Jae Hee is making a move not just to get rid of Eun Gi, but to get Maru back as well, and will be using both Jae Shik, Eun Gi’s ex-boyfriend, and even the cops to do her dirty work. I hope my OTP remains smarter and more patient than she is so they continue to thwart her every plan.
Preview for episode 15:
Jae Hee: How could you use my brother against me?
Maru: I already told you that I am capable of doing anything to get Eun Gi back to her original place.
Jae Hee: If I put everything down, can you return to my side.
Maru: if that is what you want, it’s not impossible.
Lawyer Ahn: How much do I need to pay you for you to help me bite Maru back.
Jae Hee: To arrest you there are cops everywhere so turn yourself in, Maru.
Maru: That’s enough!
Eun Gi: Why is Han Jae Hee like this? Is there something I’m not aware of?
Maru: If you can remember me, in that moment, everything will return to the way it was.
