My Thoughts — My Sassy Girl — Episode 14
At the end of my recaps I have a “My Thoughts” section where I summarize my opinions. For shows that I’m not writing detailed watch-n-blog recaps, I’m writing a “thought-cap.” I just finished the next episode of My Sassy Girl.
Nutshell Summary: Kyun Wol recalls more of his involvement as a young boy. He heard the Queen was having an affair. He wrote a scathing note and posted it. Evil Minister Jung had it copied and used it as a springboard to finish off the Queen by deposing her. When Kyon Wol found the dead pen maker, he realized the pend maker forged the letter on order of the wannabe Queen. Horrified Kyun Wol went to remove his note but it was gone. He learned the Queen had been deposed. He assumed the guilt for this. He saw the young Princess scaling the wall to look for her mother. When they massacred entourage, Kyun Woo found the Queen’s box empty. The Princess refused to return to the palace without her mother. As they shivered in a shelter, Kyun Woo told the Princess he’d look for a nearby house. When he spied one, he tripped and fell down the hell. He was knocked out and amnesia of the past year was the result.
Present day Kyun Wol remembers everything and assumes his actions lead to the Queen being deposed. He tells his father he remembers everything and bears the responsibility for writing the note that went viral. His sister overhears and tells Evil Minister Jung’s daughter who in turn tells Evil Minister Jung. Kyun Wol realizes this will shatter his relationship with the Princess when she learns of it. He avoids her, then decides to go on a farewell date but the Princess doesn’t know this is their last day together. Evil Minister’s daughter tells the Princess that Kyun Wol was the catalyst behind her mother being deposed. The Princess demands that Kyun Wol deny the ludicrous claim. He can’t. The Princess is stunned, hurt, and sad.
Kyun Woo (Joo Won) remembered everything and assumed the guilt for the Queen being deposed. I wanted to smack Kyun Woo. Dude, your note was used by Evil Minister Jung, he is the reason the Queen was deposed. Evil Minister Jung had been working against the Queen setting the stage. Kyun Woo’s note provided more ammunition. I was surprised adult Kyun Woo didn’t see that his actions, while not helpful, were only a blip in the machinations to depose the Queen. I was surprised that Kyun Woo’s father didn’t put his actions in perspective.
Princess Hye Myung (Oh Yeon Seo) had several blows this episode. Kyun Woo pulled away from her. Kyun Woo’s mother told her not bother her son again. She had a wonderful date with Kyun Woo not knowing that he planned the date to give her happy memories before blindsided her and left her forever. Tacky move Kyun Woo! I know this is a standard kdrama breakup move, but I dislike it. And Kyun Woo ordered 1 copy of the artist’s drawing of them and took it for himself! My question is simple – why doesn’t the Princess remember Kyun Woo helping her on the night her mother was deposed?
New writer Yoon Hyo Je delivered an episode that revealed all of Kyun Woo’s past memories. It is faulty logic to let Kyon Woo assume that much guilt. Why doesn’t the Princess remember their shared past?
* My favorite young Prince Wonja wrote a charming letter to Kyun Woo. He approves of Kyun Woo’s interest in his sister.
* Evil Minister Jung elected to blackmail Kyun Woo’s father in to agreeing to marriage. Kyun Woo’s father declined. I would have liked to see that scene.
* The Queen was more than willing to poison Wol Myung (at Evil Minister Jung’s suggestion) to save her own skin. Wol Myung, you loved the wrong woman. When the Queen said she’d pay for the action in hell, I hoped she did.
* Could Kyun Woo’s sister be more of a blabbermouth? She and her mother have no idea what kind of person Dae Young really is.
