Look who’s back together on this week’s episode of Gu Family Book? It’s the original flavor Mommy and Daddy Lee Yeon Hee and Choi Jin Hyuk as the drama wraps up the parents story. Frankly I though the whole thing was wrapped up at the beginning of episode 3 when Seol Hwa was cut down, but the drama managed to bring her back as a powerful force to oppose the Big Bad in a way that are far-fetched but more par for the course in this drama. I actually smiled when I saw them together, Lee Yeon Hee was particularly beautiful and fetching as Seo Hwa and I personally enjoyed her first sageuk outing performance in episode 1. She was really nailing the yangban backbone and there was palpable chemistry with Choi Jin Hyuk. But an interesting character narrative needs to be developed and the parents got short-changed as the drama rushed through their story to get to the Kang Chi bit. From marriage to betrayal everything went down in 30 minutes without any proper foundation laid for why Seol Hwa would so instantaneously blame her husband for all the bad things to happen her her, just because he was a mythical being and didn’t tell her all the painful details. So with the character paint splash job I totally lost my fervor for this couple, but with time and distance from when their scenes aired two months ago, I’m rather pleasantly pleased their story gets a proper ending now. Lee Yeon Hee makes a cameo appearance as her older self sacrifices her life for Wol Ryung, and he imagines that its still the young Seol Hwa he loved as he holds her in his arms. Either Wol Ryung is the most forgiving demon-god in the world, or I’ll just have to accept that he loved Seol Hwa so much he was willing to move beyond her leading an army to kill him and in the process turned him into a raging evil demon. There are certain betrayals and misunderstands that can be resolved and forgiven, this might be one of the most daunting ones but in the simple world of GFB at least those two got the proper weepy closure they needed. Also, these two still look fantastic together. Score one for perfect couple eye candy.
