Awwww… my lovely Faith OTP! <333
Yeap, they’re basically (still) the major reason why I’m watching Faith, regardless of the scarcity of screen time they have in drama. I don’t care less about Choi Young and Eun Soo getting together or anythin’ (I know I should be stoned for this, how can I not love that ship?!), I’m bored out by the political furor and dethronation stuff, I resent the sight of the flutist and the fire maker (they’re such stupid useless characters and they take up to much space uhhh) and I still abhor the editing and directing of this drama. Still very shoddy and clumsily put together I give up hoping for good. I’m basically just coasting because I can’t bear missing scenes of my beloved King Gong Min and his Queen No Guk.
But there are things that did like out of the crapload of bad, for example all of GM and NG’s scenes together, and most of GM and NG’s scenes with CY and ES. Maybe it’s Song Ji Na’s fondness of the King and Queen, perhaps it’s Ryu Duk Hwan and Park Se Young’s acting and chemistry (while they’re not mind-blowingly WOW, they do understand their characters well), I don’t know for some reason their scenes always come across very heartfelt and emotionally charged, very present and heart-rendering. Ep 14 had some very memorable moments which (surprisingly) nearly triggered my tear glands i.e. when GM confronted CY in front of his ministers, the restrained tears and concern in GM’s eyes, the flow of mutuality between the 2 men, I was consumed totally, by RDH’s ability to convey the intense feelings with such gravitas and restraint. And during ES and NG’s conversation about how GM will come to love her so much that nothing else could even compare, it was no less heartbreaking. Just because we know. Just because we know what it’s like a few thousand years later.
Although I’m not thoroughly invested in CY and ES’s quest or love story, I’m still very much intrigued by how her presence has affected and will affect the history of Goryeo. It’s obvious drama’s trying to refer to history as accurately as possible with a fictional character in the picture, and that’s one thing I do appreciate about drama so far. What would have happened if she didn’t time travel and land in Goryeo? Would Goryeo have been the same as told in history textbooks now? Drama’s halfway through and I still have no single idea how and what would happen to everyone, I just know we’re heading for much more gloom and doom.
But oh wellz, at least we have so much cuteness off set, I LIKE!
Darling, Chuseok is around the corner, have a bite will you? <33
Why don’t we reward Choi Sang Gung who brought us together?
Hmmmmmmm, this one’s not so nice.
Why don’t we just sit look stare and ogle at each other instead?
And wish all of you a HAPPY CHUSEOK!
