New shows have joined the ratings fray, and as the fight for the most viewership intensifies, the primetime dramas are rolling out their best scenes.
So, which K-drama moments from the fourth week of June made our list? Check it out!
1. “Mask”: I am his wife
We’ve been pulling our hair in frustration, waiting for Ji Sook to fully embrace her Eun Ha persona and stop letting the pathetic loan sharks and her awful brother-in-law, Seok Hoon, intimidate and manipulate her. Finally, there might be hope for her. In an earlier scene, Eun Ha told Min Woo that a wife takes care of her husband. So, when she barged into a shareholder’s meeting that would strip him of his position as director and announced that she’s he’s wife, we screamed. Why? Because that could mean she’s about to take care of business and protect him. Our fingers are crossed!
2. “The Time We Were Not In Love”: You are the best
Making up after a fight, Oh Ha Na and Choi Won hang out on a rooftop, eating spicy chicken feet and drinking beer. The best friends talk about Ha Na’s dating life, and Won tells her to meet a good man. She declares she’ll meet a really good man, regardless of his looks. Won playfully rubs her head while he praises her for growing up. Suddenly, she grows quiet, and her face turns serious as though a thought has just sunk in. She tells Won that the man just has to be nice. She adds, “A nice man is the best.” She then sits down next to Won and rests her arm on his shoulder. With her face only inches away from his, she asks, “Don’t you think?” Won is unable to answer and just stares at her, keenly aware of their closeness. If you’re hoping for Ha Na and Won to go from friends to lovers, then this isn’t the moment. Breaking out of his spell, he shoves her away, joking that she smells like chicken feet. Gaaah! Party pooped!
3. “My Love Eun Dong”: All coming back
Ten years ago, Hyun Soo wrote a letter to Eun Dong when she disappeared from his life. It carried all the love and passion he felt for her, but the letter also vanished. After a decade of living life as Jung Eun, Eun Dong is on the brink of remembering her past with Hyun Soo, and as though it sensed it, the letter has emerged from its years of solitude, fulfilling its journey to its rightful owner. Reading Hyun Soo’s long-hidden words revives her memories, and although it is all too overwhelming for her, at least now, she has the truth. But what will she do with it? Will she choose to continue living the lie her family has built for her, or will she reclaim her fate with Hyun Soo?
4. “The Time We Were Not In Love”: If you only knew
Ha Na and Won have been friends for so long that she might think she knows everything about him. However, Ha Na is probably unaware about Won’s true feelings for her.
The second episode’s epilogue reveals the things Won has done for Ha Na, like letting her win each time they have gone up against each other or how he (secretly) remembered her scrunchie that helped him spend time with her during a group date. We love knowing how attentive Won is towards Ha Na as it attests to the depth of his feelings for her.
5. “I Remember You”: Just call me Sherlock Hyun
We love a good first impression, and Lee Hyun sure knows how to make one.
Ji An and her police unit are called to a crime scene. The only person missing is their new team leader.
They arrive there to find a sexy man wearing a sexy suit. Could this be their boss? They try to ask, but he has no time for frivolous questions. Instead, he delves right into the case, making deductions and connections that they wouldn’t have made in a million years. Oh dear, why isn’t he our team leader? And that’s the same question the police unit asked soon after he disappeared, and they met their real team leader. Poor them!
6. “Hwajung”: Square-off
The war between the Ming and the Jin has landed at Gwang Hae‘s feet. However, he remains resolute about sticking to his plans, even as the Ming threaten to invade his kingdom if he chooses not to ally with them. Gwang Hae decides against revealing this plan to his officials so that he isn’t forced to sacrifice the lives of his people for the Ming, but Prince Neungyang tells all in public protest. He openly pleads with the Gwang Hae to comply with the Ming and threatens to take his own life in protest. So begins the power struggle between the two. Aaah, the political angst!
While this might be a short list, we hope you enjoyed it anyway!
