Wild Romance: Ep 7
OMGGGGGGG EP 7. MY LOVE FOR WILD ROMANCE IS OFFICIAL!!!!!!! Shippy cliched stereotypical OTP scenes galore..and I love it. It’s like the writers suddenly decided to bombard us with as many OTP moments as possible. Let us count how many cliches there are in here, shall we?
EUN JAE SEARCHES FOR MOO YEOL AFTER HE GOES MISSING. SHE GETS LOST IN A DISTANT FOREST ON A MOUNTAIN AND STARTS FREAKING OUT. Right at the perfect moment, Moo Yeol sees Eun Jae freaking out in the middle of no where. He’s confused to see her there and calls out her nickname. Eun Jae is scared out of her wits by his sudden appearance, full of relief that he’s ok, and still high on adrenaline since she thought she was gonna spend the night in the woods. All of this leads to her crying uncontrollably.
MOO YEOL AWKWARDLY STANDS THERE, CONFUSED SINCE HE HAS NO CLUE WHY SHE’S CRYING. WHAT DOES HE DOOOOOOO? He HUGS HER and tells her not to cry as she cries into his jacket.
Then he gets up to start walking back, but Eun Jae grabs his sleeve because she’s scared of getting lost again. Moo Yeol shakes off her hand..AND THEN TAKES HER HAND IN HIS AND WALKS HER BACK. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. It’s really weird seeing Moo Yeol being all nice and..SENSITIVE…but it’s great.
The two of them return to a random house in the middle of the woods where Moo Yeol is staying. Eun Jae gives him a pep talk, urging him not to give up on baseball. The next day Eun Jae wants to start walking back to the base of the mountain so they can return home, but CLICHE NUMBER 5 appears! Eun Jae comes down with a horrible fever! AND MOO YEOL CHECKS HER FOREHEAD. HE PUTS HIS JACKET OVER HER AND LETS HER SLEEP.
AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF…MOO YEOL SLEEPS BY EUN JAE TO KEEP HER WARM. WOIGTAIWTJGOIASEJGOLEJGOLSEJHOL.
To get to the point, Moo Yeol gets to stay on the team. After hearing the news, he ecstatically hugs EVERYONE around him–Eun Jae, Dong Soo, Secretary Kim (idk I might’ve gotten his title wrong..was it a secretary or a lawyer or a manager or what?)…and then Moo Yeol is about to give Kim Dong Ah (who promptly holds her arms out, waiting for a hug) a hug when Eun Jae gets in his way and it ends up being a threesome hug. HAHAHA.
AND THENNNN…ANOTHER PLOT TWIST! THE MYSTERIOUS EX RETURNS!!!!! JONG HEE!!!!!!! She is the definition of an anime character in real life. Moo Yeol melts in her presence and you can tell he’s already fallen at her feet just with her first appearance. Eun Jae can only helplessly stand right next to them as they embrace. Poor girl! Things are gonna get complicated.
This was definitely the most satisfying episode for me. The past episodes had some OTP moments, but they were mainly EJ and MY bickering like siblings. Episode 7 really brought on the REAL OTP scenes. Unfortunately I still don’t really see great chemistry between EJ and MY…mainly because I still feel like MY is more of an older brother figure to EJ.
I was surprised by the appearance of Jong Hee because I seriously thought that this was the one drama where there wouldn’t be a love triangle. (at first I thought it might be with Dong Soo’s wife, but they already cleared up that suspicion.) I was wrong, OF COURSE there has to be an old love interest that will appear out of no where, probably from living abroad for a while. And of course the love interest is feminine, sparkly, and beautiful. I really hope she’s NOT the typical rich pretty 2nd lead character. It’ll be quite interesting seeing how MY treats Jong Hee.
I’ve mentioned this before, but Kim Dong Ah is my favorite character in WR. She’s smart, quirky, completely the opposite of your usual heroine. It’s the funniest thing when she’s paired with Secretary Kim because he’s always such a serious guy…while she’s super smart and laid back at the same time.
