Just when they finally admitted their feelings go beyond the Geumganggo, we get another roadblock, this time it’s deadlier.
O’gong, Ms Ma and Devil King realize that Seon Mi has the death bell and it has rung – which means one has to kill the other in the end. I’m quite curious how they will resolve this main conflict. While O’Gong loves Seon Mi, it seems like he is not yet so fully committed that he is willing to die for her, which makes sense since he has lived and so long being ruthless when it comes to survival. I’m not sure how he thinks he can get Samjang killed given the circumstances since based on the rules of the Geumganggo, he will feel as much pain as Samjang feels – just like how at the end of episode 11, when O’gong was so angry at the 2 goons for killing Zombie girl and Seon Mi rushes to stop him, his heart was suddenly squeezed so tight by the thorns that he actually bled blood. I feel pained seeing O’gong’s look of astonishment and Seon Mi’s look of horror as they try to decipher what has happened even though they dont know how. I really hope they can complete the storyline in a good way coz i will feel totally let down if they just skirt away from this issue a few episodes from now.
On the other hand, these 3 episodes gave us a glimpse of how much Seon Mi finally appreciates the special skill that was given to her, even though it may also cost her the love of her life. All she wanted since she was young was to feel ordinary and not see or interact with any ghosts – and when the bookseller took her child’s soul away, she was able to live and try how it is to be normal. The first few times she felt sad, coz suddenly from being a special and doted by the monsters, she is now a nobody and useless. I dont know exactly how long she spent living an ordinary life – but i’m disappointed that it felt too short though – probably just 1 day for her to realize she wants it back. I think it’s a combination of wanting O’gong back to her side, to helping Zombie girl and feeling special again by helping other people get rid of the evil spirits. it’s like saying you quit smoking for a day or you will start dieting then go back to your habit a day after. And honestly right now, she is getting rid of evil spirits – but these are mostly the little monsters – she hasn’t dealt with the big ones that can really wreak havoc to the world and make a difference – though i think we are gearing up for that.
Another interesting storyline is the sacred tree – i dont know what the Professor saw when he touched the coffin – all we saw is a glimpse of a woman wearing a veil. I dont know how powerful she is or how she is important to the monster’s group world and Samjang – but definitely another storyline that is interesting.
finally after several episodes, Zombie girl finds out her identity but she gets tricked by the 2 goons and pushed from the rooftop. I am so so so angry now. I like Zombie girl and i really wished she lives longer – but i also dont know how. It seems like her storyline has ended. and i love her she was so brave to say goodbye to everyone and make a decision to ask Ogong to burn her before she rots away and become an evil spirit. I really really wish she comes back! and I’m sure PK will feel totally devastated once he hears what has happened to Zombie girl. As for Jade Dragon, right now i feel like he/she doesn’t really do anything to the storyline except argue with PK. I hope we see his/her power later.
I also feel like Devil King has become more of a side character without any real storyline aside from helping Ogong and Samjang, which is kind of disappointing coz i was really looking forward for him to complete his own mission of rescuing his love (which i dont know if she is still alive or dead). At this point, he is a big ally to the team, and i’m not sure if he will ever betray them for his own interests. I love the bromance between Devil King and O’gong, i guess they have lived long enough to like each other and even talking about forming a hotel or restaurant together. hahaha. face it Devil King, despite you trying to get away from Ogong, you will always protect him, the way i’m sure Ogong will protect Devil King when needed.
I’m not sure how long the drama series will be since i’m already in episode 11 – but i still feel like we’re just in the middle of the whole story and there’s still a lot to tackle.
