That Winter The Wind Blows, episode 8-9

What struck me the most about these 2 episodes is how manipulative and ruthless Young can be when she wants to. But it’s not like I blame her. I HOPE she keeps it up because her strength and resolve is probably the most attractive thing about her. Much like Oh Soo, I’m both in love with her and terrified of her. Oh Soo, let’s hold hands, this is going to get rough.

Like here, when she reprimands him for taking Secretary Wang’s side by caring about her health…The logic is insane – “if you keep pestering me about my health, you will turn into someone I despise”, but because it’s Young, Oh Soo can’t do anything but yield to her demands to leave the issue of her health alone.

I must have misunderstood their whole exchange on the pill because I don’t quite get why she became so disappointed with him for giving her a pill that might kill her. What did you think it was, honey? Only thing that can make you feel at peace is either sleep or death and she should’ve figured out which one it was from his insistence on trying to get it back from her.

그 겨울, 바람이 분다.E09.130307.HDTV.H264.720p-HANrel.avi_snapshot_01.02.53_[2013.03.11_14.18.51]

I just love how their physical intimacy gets disrupted by their emotional distance time and time again.

I know some people started to feel fatigued by this drama and like I mentioned before, I’m not all that affected by certain aspects of it (like the pill mind games or the overly romantic mountain top scene) but overall, I would say that I’m still obsessed with this couple. Everything about them just works for me – the playfulness, the intimacy, the sexual tension, the denial, the subtle care, the little lies and the significant half-truths, the outright love they feel for each other, laced with despair and impossibility. This week is when I began to feel in earnest that this might become one of my favorite Kdramas ever, eclipsing the long-standing darling of mine – Coffee Prince.
