Boys Over Flowers Ep 18
BECAUSE THEY ARE THE MEGALOLZ AND YOU LOVE IT.
In this episode: a continuing Love Square that really needs to end nao and the random people who should shove off keep encouraging it, emo!everyone, one of the most hilarious flashbacks ever, problems for Jandi’s family, heartbreak for SoEul fans (you two were supposed to be my shining light of hope because Jun Pyo and Jandi have filled the angst quota for the next century), Jun Pyo x Jaekyung (I like when they bond over being young and gorgeous and fabulously rich and somehow end the conversation with MY LIFE IS SO HARD), Jun Pyo x Jandi (I get such a kick out of Jandi protecting Jun Pyo from something … even if it’s a cockroach this time), Jandi x Ji Hoo (loved that scene where they write wishes for each other aww!), Woobin x Ee Jung (I DID JUST SAY THAT), etc.
As always, subbed links up on arashi.vox ♥!
Picking up from last time: Jun Pyo has a gorgeous girl pressed up against him. WHY SO SERIOUS, BB.
I really liked this scene. He turns to her and says, “Somewhere out there, there’s a guy that fits you. Since you’re not completely ugly.” dies, she’s not in the least bit ugly! She tells him that she doesn’t want anyone else, it has to be him. He apologizes to her.
Then she asks if he likes someone else. He admits he does and then gets curious why she’s not asking who it is. IT’S ASKING THE OBVIOUS, DUH. She knows who it is, but sticks her fingers into her ears and goes, “I can’t hear anything, I can’t hear anything~!”
Jandi has seen them hugging, but not the conversation, so she gets the wrong idea and mopes on the stairs. Of course Ji Hoo shows up.
THEY ARE HOLDING HANDS OMG.
We all need a Ji Hoo in our lives. And someone needs to take that guitar to Jun Pyo’s head. Or someone. THE WRITERS. GET US OUT OF THIS LOVE SQUARE ALREADY.
Jandi falls asleep on Ji Hoo’s shoulder and he tucks her in :*.
Jaekyung is drowning her sorrows with a tub of icecream. BECAUSE IT’S NOT ENOUGH FOR A BOY TO JUST BREAK A GIRL’S HEART, HE HAS TO MAKE HER FAT TOO.
HI WOO BIN! He is emo-ing and reflecting by a bridge.
THIS FLASHBACK. WAS SO FUNNY AND AWKWARD AND TOUCHING AND ?!?!?!?!?! ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Woo Bin’s walking precariously on a railing while Ee Jung is telling him to get down. Woo Bin asks him, “Hey, Ee Jung, why are you friends with me?”
Ee Jung registers surprise, but Woo Bin continues, “Be honest, you’re embarrassed to be friends with a son of the mob. Although I am this embarrassed of myself, I’m sure it must be much worse for you guys… the guys from the good families don’t even consider me a human being.”
Woo Bin then admits that he’s only embarrassed in front of his friends: “My boss, my future, it doesn’t matter what anyone says. But to you guys, sometimes it’s embarrassing.”
Ee Jung decides that Woo Bin has had too much crazy for the night and pulls him down from the railing, THROWING HIM AGAINST THE CAR. HOSHIT. I was like 85% sure they were going to start making out or something. WHERE DID THIS SCENE COME FROM XDDDDDDD
In the present time, Ee Jung is getting wasted at a bar.
He stumbles over to another group, falls over on a girl, looks at her like the A+ player he is, and kisses her. That, of course, doesn’t endear him to other guys sitting with said girl and they throw Ee Jung off. And proceed to rain down kicks and punches on him. One of them stomps down hard on Ee Jung’s hand.
ALMOST PARADIIIIIIIIIISE!!! (They don’t play this song anymore, but I-I think I’ll always associate with BOF fight scenes now XD.) Woo Bin arrives to save the day. He picks Ee Jung up, asking sadly, “Ee Jung, why did you drink so much?” Woo Bin stops his henchmen from beating the perpetrators up and proceeds to KICK THEIR ASSES on his own :). Then he piggybacks Ee Jung outta there.
LOVE SQUARE. At breakfast, Jaekyung announces that last night was historic for her and Jun Pyo. LOL. She explains Jun Pyo’s absence, “He left first out of embarrassment.” GRRRRRR
REACTIONS. Jandi drops her fork and Ji Hoo gives his to her. It was sweet :*.
Jaekyung tells the two of them to enjoy their time here. She walks away, looking a little guilty about misleading Jandi.
Ji Hoo x Jandi :))))).
THIS SCENE WAS SO CUTE! They both write out their wishes for each other. Ji Hoo wishes for Jandi to get accepted to medical school. Jandi wishes for Ji Hoo to always be happy.
A guy, who has been watching them curiously all this time, finally walks over to them. They greet him politely and turn to leave, but not before he can stop Ji Hoo.
He tells Ji Hoo, “She is like a lotus flower that brightens up even the mud. Be good to her. She’s the girl that will give you a family.” EXCUSE ME WHAT. (Unless he means that Jandi will be the one to bring Ji Hoo and his grandpa together, although I don’t know how he could possibly know that…) Ji Hoo seems to consider this carefully. AAAAAND WE SINK DEEPER INTO THE QUAGMIRE.
There’s also this lady at Grandpa’s clinic telling him, “If I had a grandson, I’d want Jandi to be my granddaughter.” CRIES.
Grandpa doesn’t look too good ;__;. They had better not pull one of those K-drama things and kill his character off, btw.
Jandi gets home to find her parents packing up. They tell Jandi that they’re heading south to work on her uncle’s anchovy boat and make enough money to support their kids. Jandi and her brother will stay behind because they have to continue their schooling.
Meanwhile. Jun Pyo wakes up the next morning to find that Jaekyung has prepared him breakfast.
She manhandles him to his seat.
This scene was really adorable 8D. He asks her why she’s done all this when he has a chef, but she tells him, “Even though I want to do something for you, there really isn’t much. For you and me, is there something we want to buy or something we haven’t tried?” She tells him she always wanted a noisy and enjoyable breakfast and that she “really hated eating alone at a huge table”. Jun Pyo grows thoughtful at this and agrees to eat what she’s prepared. He’s still thinking about Jandi though. LOL.
She gets excited when he says the food is delicious.
THEN HE STARES INTO HER SOUL. It was awesome, a moment of real understanding :).
Jandi’s still house-hunting, with some help from Ga Eul. The nice lady at the clinic offers Jandi a place to stay.
Jun Pyo randomly find Jaekyung in another room of his house XD. She’s there to give him the engagement present: those couple rings.
He looks at them and stops when he sees the J♥J inscription on them. (Randomly, I really like that silver and black ring he’s wearing on his right hand :D.)
She asks him to put one of the rings on her. He looks conflicted for a moment, then puts the rings back into the box, shoves the box into her hand, and walks out. She asks him, “Where are you going?” and he turns back to glare at her. “You’re my fiance, not my wife, so go home!”
Thinking about Jandi… SHIT, SON, SO ARE WE.
Meanwhile, Ee Jung is nursing a broken arm and thinking about his own first love.
Flashback time. MAYBE KIM BUM JUST LOOKS ADORABLE WITH EVERYONE. AHHH. He must be a casting director’s dream.
Making pottery look sexy in the way Ghost did. Just in a PG version.
OHHHHHHHHHH MY LOOOOOOVE, MY DARLING, I’VE HUNGERED FOR YOUR TOUCH ♫
He tells her that girls are like math problems, “First I wonder how I’m going to solve it. If I study and look at it a bit more, they all have a solution. It’s really simple, but it’s still fun in its own way.” LMAO. I was hoping for something like, “I wanna be your derivative so I can lay tangent to your curves.” That math joke was all the rage when I was in high school lol, but I’m sure there are much better ones now. And probably much dirtier ones too XD;;.
She looks at him a bit sadly and says, “To me, you’re a theory that I just can’t solve.”
She smears some clay on his nose and they chase each other around the studio. ADORBS ♥. If Ga Eul wasn’t so cute herself, I’d be rooting for these two to get back together.
Jun Pyo jars Ee Jung from his thoughts.
Ee Jung says that his career is over ;__;. (OH K-DRAMAS.) Then he compares himself to Jandi, “A swimmer’s shoulder is broken into pieces, so she quits. The potter’s hands are broken into pieces, so he quits.”
Jun Pyo finally learns the truth about Jandi’s shoulder; it was broken when she protected him from that chair blow in episode 12. Ee Jung continues, “After she heard she couldn’t swim again, you don’t know how much she cried, do you?”
Ee Jung muses sadly, “For guys like you and me, we only give scars to the girls we like.”
Jun Pyo knows it.
Jandi and her brother move into their new place, again with some help from Ga Eul :D.
THEY ARE SO CUTE OMG ♥.
AND THIS TOO. AHHHHHHHHHH. That’s the stuffed animal that Jandi gave him as a birthday present ♥.
His assistant comes to tuck him in XD. (Crap, I forgot his name again!) He notices that Jun Pyo has pictures of Jandi and her brother moving into their new place (CREEPER HOW DOES HE GET ALL OF THIS), smiles understandingly, and puts the pictures under Jun Pyo’s pillow for safekeeping.
Jandi’s brother helps her with the newspaper route.
They get home to find out that Jun Pyo has moved into the apartment next door XDDDDDDD.
She asks him suspiciously what he’s doing. He says he’s doing it for the experience of living alone, “Haven’t you seen dramas? It’s normal for kingdoms and dignitaries to be harsh when training their heirs. Haven’t you heard of people that drop their sons off cliffs on purpose?”
Jandi basically tells him to get lost, lol. He sticks out his hand as if calling a truce and says, “We’re neighbors now. Treat me well.” JESUS HE IS A GIANT.
She slaps his hand away and he looks crestfallen, HA!
After that pleasant encounter, Jandi comes home to find a bunch of stuff (household items, etc) in her apartment. Jun Pyo tells her he couldn’t use all of it himself so he “threw it away” in Jandi’s apartment. XDDD;;.
He gets distracted by the REAL FOOD.
It’s cute how Jandi’s given up the two bowls to her brother and to Jun Pyo, using the pot cover as her own plate ^^. A second elapses before Jun Pyo decides that whatever Jandi is eating looks significantly more delicious, lmao. HAHAHAHAHA! I love how Jandi gets her “WHAT AN IDIOT” look when she tells him, “What! Do you think we cooked mines separately?!”
Jun Pyo won’t hear any of it. He grabs the pot cover from Jandi, shoves her his bowl, and starts wolfing down that ramyun like no tomorrow. He stops just short of licking the bowl. Of course, all of this translates into Jandi and her brother eating only very little of the ramyun, but Jun Pyo still has the nerve to ask if there’s any more. :D!
Meanwhile, Ga Eul confesses to Ee Jung. OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO. She tells him, “I really like you, sunbae.” He stares at her with some shock.
Poor thing ;___;. She was so brave to do it, too.
Ee Jung recovers from his shock quickly and thanks her. BUT he has rules when it comes to dating girls. He won’t touch the nice girls, the stupid girls, or the girls that are somehow involved with his friends. Ga Eul fits the criteria for all three, so he won’t go out with her. AIIIIIIIII
She starts to protest, but he ends the conversation with, “You know the way out, right?” She leaves ;__;. Ee Jung smashes a clay piece in anger. It looks like there will be even more angst in the next episode. Although as long as it’s not drawn out (JUN PYO x JANDI, I AM TALKING TO YOU) and it ends happily, I’m cool with it :).
Jandi is studying diligently when her concentration is interrupted by ear-piercing screams coming from Jun Pyo’s apartment next door. SO FREAKING FUNNY HAHAHAHAHAHA. He has a pretty high-pitched scream, although no one has anything on Park Jungmin of SS501, trufax. Jun Pyo’s screaming things like, “What the hell is that! OH MY GOD, SAVE ME!!” so Jandi thinks it might be something serious. She rushes to his apartment to find…
COWERING IN THE CORNER AT THE SIGHT OF A COCKROACH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Although I really shouldn’t laugh because I’m terrified at cockroaches too. There’s something about them that screams I AM THE MOST @#$&%@*(# DISGUSTING THING ALIVE!!!
Jandi makes another one of her WHAT AN IDIOT faces and proceeds to squash the cockroach flat. Brave O___o. Jun Pyo tucks in his legs even more and I actually made gurgling noises out loud. He’s too cute for words ♥.
She berates him for making so much noise when she’s trying to study, “You’re a total nuisance! If you pull that one more time, I’ll call out the police!!” LOLOLOLOL She turns to leave.
He stops her and asks hesitantly, “A little later … can you go back a little later?” I sighed out loud, you guys. He asks her to stay with him until he falls asleep. AWW. He’s really running his tough guy image through the shredder!
SQUEE SHE TUCKS HIM IN. I didn’t cap it, but there was also a really cute part where she knuckles him on the head, lol. So cute. OTP ♥.
Jandi returns to her own apartment to find Jaekyung there. LOL IT’S LIKE, WHY CAN’T THESE RICH PEOPLE LEAVE US ALONE?! Turns out Jaekyung found out about Jandi’s situation and has also brought stuff over for her.
Ji Hoo’s new place to nap is in a corner of the library, where his loooong legs prove a hazard to anyone walking by. (Speaking from personal experience, the library is a great place to sleep at school. I usually pass out in one of the carrels, though, not in the stacks XD.)
They head to the stairwell, where Ji Hoo notices that Jandi is flicking through an art book. He tells her, “I didn’t know you were interested in arts.” She explains that she has to turn in an essay about a museum, but it’s too expensive to actually go to a museum, so she’s just going to look through books to do her assignment.
So, of course, Ji Hoo gets a museum closed so Jandi can look through it XD.
He notices Jandi looking at a lotus flower piece.
How is he able to sleep anywhere. Jandi draws him :) ♥.
Ji Hoo wakes up and muses that if he knew it was going to be like this, he would have gotten an accountant. To accept fees whenever Jandi needs transportation, a cup of coffee, admission to the museum, and even a model XD. He should totally just get one anyway since he does so many favors for all of his friends. I’m sure Jun Pyo alone would owe him a gazillion dollars and Ji Hoo would be able to buy out Shinhwa Group.
He has a present for her too ^^. It’s that lotus flower she was looking at earlier! He explains the significance of it: “The lotus flower, even if it blossoms in mud, exists to make the world a little brighter.” ♥♥♥♥♥ Ji Hoo says Jandi is similar to the lotus flower, awww.
She’s just like, “OH SNAP! HOMEWORK IS COMPLETED!” She’s referring to the time when Ji Hoo’s grandpa called her a lotus flower and told her to figure out what he meant, but Ji Hoo doesn’t know that so we get a very, very cute confused!Hyunjoong!
Jun Pyo’s packing up some clothes to take to his new apartment next to Jandi’s. He asks his assistant to help in deluding his mother.
JAEKYUNG BURSTS ON THE SCENE. He gets angry, “Did you fry your cell phone somewhere? Before you go to someone’s house, you call first and get permission! Didn’t you learn common sense?!”
Jaekyung flops over on his bed and says, “Now that I think of it, I’ve never learned anything like that. Do you do that, Jun Pyo?” SMART GIRL :D. CALLING HIM OUT.
BUSTED :D. Jun Pyo tries to make her go away. He starts with trying to strangle her with her scarf.
WHERE IS THIS GOING D:.
His assistant was so funny here! LOL! He kind of smiled/rolled his eyes like OH TEENAGERS AND THEIR HORMONES and leaves the room.
Jaekyung pulls Jun Pyo down and asks him coquettishly, “Want to make a bet with me?”
Lots of thoughts were racing through my head through this last scene. It was a mashup of “DAMMIT I WANT TO BE HER IN THIS MOMENT”, “remember your OTP is Jun Pyo x Jandi!”, “they look really adorable together”, “THEY HAVE CHEMISTRY IN ACES, ACTUALLY”, “I could go for a makeout scene right about now”, “writers, I have my pitchfork ready”, “:DDD!”, “DDD:!”, “^___^!”, etc, etc.
This drama makes people go schizo. WHY CAN’T I STOP WATCHING D:.
