Fate and unfastened will might appear to be opposing ideas, however each have an element to play on this week’s episodes of “Hotel Del Luna.” Even when given a decision, Goo Chan Sung (Yeo Jin Goo) fights to stick via Jang Man Wol’s (IU) facet — bringing her nearer and nearer to her personal destiny. As extra characters, each new and outdated, come into play, tensions are heightened as our tale builds against its climax. That method extra surprises, touching moments, romance, and, after all, comedian reduction. This week’s episodes introduced us some of these feelings and extra, so listed here are 7 occasions that “Hotel Del Luna” gave us emotional whiplash!
Warning: spoilers for “Hotel Del Luna” Episodes Nine and 10 underneath.
1. Chan Sung the nuisance
After a bit chat with the deity Ma Go, Chan Sung has absolutely embraced his function as Man Wol’s final nag, appearing as her moral sense and pestering her so she’ll transform a greater individual — err… spirit. His tenacity is as candy as his nagging is lovable for how a lot it each annoys and touches Man Wol.
Chan Sung even is going as far as to toss a treasured medication that will remove his skill to peer ghosts into a close-by pond, simply to turn Man Wol his devotion… best to have the gentle second humorously shattered via the well-intentioned water spirit he had simply rehabilitated into mentioned pond. Nam Da Reum’s cameo as a sulky deity simply looking to do a just right deed introduced us from irritating feelings to cracking up in mere seconds. Chan Sung used to be looking to end up some degree, right here!
2. Chan Sung’s biggest worry
In change for revealing his personal insecurities, the water spirit additionally confirmed Chan Sung what he is maximum fearful of — and the heartbreaking solution is that he fears Man Wol’s spirit will fail to be reincarnated and disappear perpetually. In the superbly tragic scene, we see simply how deeply Chan Sung cares for Man Wol and get a style of what a tragic finishing would possibly appear to be for the drama. Please don’t do that to us, Hong Sisters!
3. Man Wol’s jealous antics
For somebody who has attempted awfully arduous to eliminate Chan Sung, Man Wol certain is reluctant to permit him to be pawned off to some other lovely woman. And this time her danger is the stunning Jang Ji Eun (cameo via Sulli!), whose grandfather, as a ghost on the resort, tries to set her up with Chan Sung.
Luckily for us, Man Wol’s makes an attempt to secretly block Chan Sung from being arrange with Ji Eun now not best had been lovable but additionally ended in this steamy second of closeness. Can you assert “chemistry”?
4. The college reunion long past fallacious
Mi Ra (Park Yoo Na) doesn’t notice she’s introduced a serial killer into her pals’ lives when she invitations Ji Won (David Lee) to the reunion accumulating in their find out about in a foreign country workforce. But we’ve noticed this psychopath in motion, and his pastime in our liked male lead makes us extraordinarily apprehensive….
5. Yeon Woo’s go back
Unbeknownst to her, Mi Ra additionally comes head to head with somebody else from her very far away previous when she crosses paths with Park Young Soo (Lee Tae Sun), the modern day reincarnation of Yeon Woo. We know this almost certainly received’t finish properly, however from Young Soo forgetting his pen in a taxi to Mi Ra pretending its ink ruined her skirt as a way to get his telephone quantity, this couple is so lovable that we will’t assist however send them.
Even extra significant than this assembly, after all, used to be Man Wol’s temporary stumble upon with the person who used to be like circle of relatives to her of their previous lives. Though they don’t even such a lot as change phrases, the truth that Young Soo is doing properly and the faint glimmer of popularity on his face are sufficient to deliver tears to Man Wol’s eyes — in addition to ours!
6. Chan Sung’s circle of relatives tragedy
“Hotel Del Luna” hasn’t ever prior to entertained the query of what came about to Chan Sung’s mom, however the drama took a surprising dive into this plot line via placing Chan Sung head to head together with her ghost. Tied to the human international by way of a e book that holds photos of herself with Chan Sung, his mom remains to be ashamed that she has a son in any respect, and maintains that her circle of relatives should now not know about him.
Man Wol admits the girl into the resort as a way to give Chan Sung the danger to peer his mom off to the afterlife and get some closure, giving us an achingly unhappy scene for Chan Sung:
Raw and heartbreaking although it used to be, this story would were extra impactful if it have been offered previous than the similar episode during which it used to be resolved: have we ever heard Chan Sung even point out his mom prior to? “Hotel Del Luna” has given us weeks of snippets of Man Wol’s tragic previous, however it robbed Chan Sung’s persona of the similar intensity and emotional buildup via best starting to ask about his personal tragedy simply mins prior to we got here head to head with it:
Instead, the plot line used to be offered and wrapped up briefly, and we slightly were given to peer Chan Sung maintain the emotional turmoil he should be feeling, which additionally would were a lovely alternative to make use of Yeo Jin Goo’s skill to its complete extent!
7. Chan Sung’s loyalty
The clumsy dealing with of Chan Sung’s previous issues to some of the few flaws of “Hotel Del Luna”: Chan Sung is a susceptible male lead. This is also an unpopular opinion, however Chan Sung’s unwavering loyalty to Man Wol is now not specifically wholesome — in a fairly literal sense, as a result of she actively endangers him:
If the jobs had been reversed, and Chan Sung had been a feminine lead hopelessly clinging to a person who’s egocentric to the purpose of placing her in peril to enact his personal revenge, would we now not whinge that she’s a susceptible persona who wishes to offload him, achieve some vainness, and rise up for herself? The drama does itself no favors via giving us little perception into Chan Sung’s emotional international as opposed to portraying him as merely extraordinarily kindhearted.
The counterargument, after all, is that Chan Sung has skilled Man Wol’s previous thru his desires, and understands firsthand how a lot she has been harm. He is aware of that there’s just right within her, and he (rather blindly) hopes that if he is helping draw it out, she’s going to do the precise factor in any case and thereby offer protection to him the way in which he’s protective her.
It’s a touching sentiment that would possibly simply be the one approach to save Man Wol: she used to be betrayed previously, and provided that she completely trusts Chan Sung to be there for her will she make the precise determination, the one who will put his protection over her revenge, within the inevitable war to return. But we’re hesitant to consider that “Hotel Del Luna” will give us the sort of satisfied finishing, and we will best hope that Chan Sung’s devotion to Man Wol doesn’t get him harm in any case.
