This post can also be called “Why Na-jeong and Trash Oppa Don’t Work.”
These past 2 episodes were a little rough on Team Chilbongie, which is why I am writing this post to make myself feel a little better.
As a hard-core Chilbongie fan, I could not watch the Na-jeong/Oppa kiss. It was cute for the firsst two seconds when she asked for a hug. Then I was physically repulse by their lip lock. Sorry for my strong opinions, but the kiss felt very incestuous and Oppa looks like an Byuntae Ahjussi when he’s kissing. Yikes!
List of Reasons Oppa and Na-jeong don’t work:
1. Na-jeong completely relies on him and needs to be taken care of by him. This works in some dramas, but Na-jeong’s a headstrong girl. I just see her as an independent female who doesn’t need a guy to be her Daddy Long Legs.
2. Na-jeong’s actually smart. Please refer to this educated/coherent post. I’m so used to seeing Na-jeong in the context of her grade-school crush on Oppa that I forgot this girl actually had brains. It wasn’t until today’s episode when Na-jeong was tutoring our adorable Chilbong that I realized the girl is intelligent.
3. Our Na-jeong is way too caught up in her love for Oppa. I feel like she’s blind to some things that don’t work between them. She’s just too enamored with him to see Chilbongie who’s waiting on the sidelines for her.
4. As repeated earlier, they cant kiss. It’s gross. In the words of my friend, Na-jeong should know incompatible they are from that kiss.
This list is a little weak. I’m sorry! As usual, I’m still reeling from the episode. However, for narrative’s sake, I do know Na-jeong and Oppa have to date. I hope Na-jeong realizes how they don’t work out. From the preview, it seems that Chilbong will have to leave the House for a while. Although I usually hate time jumps, I think time apart for Na-jeong and Chilbong will be good. Chilbong needs to find something in life beyond baseball and Na-jeong. As I mentioned in the last post, Chilbongie’s pretty flat and one-sided. I love him for who he is, but he might need more in that empty head of his. As for Na-jeong, I need this period for her to really experience a romantic relationship with Oppa and figure out that he’s not the one. Oppa and Na-jeong’s break up must stem from Na-jeong’s own accord or else it wouldn’t make any sense. They can’t use any reasons like Oppa went to the army and they drifted apart or weak stuff like that.
I’m still wracking my brain trying to figure out how Na-jeong will break up with Oppa. But I’m drawing a blank. Thoughts anyone?
Also why can’t Oppa just be gay.
And of course I have to end with my favorite part of today’s episode…
