Soundtrack Review #1: Park Hyung Sik and Han So Hee’s Thrilling Romance Drama Tells a Story of Unrequited Love
The episode begins with Lee Eun Soo having her photo clicked by Han Sun Woo. The two have been friends for 19 years and know all about each other. The audience is also introduced to other supporting characters. Han Sun Woo is an aspiring photographer while Lee Eun Soo is a lyricist. She has written lyrics for several artists but has yet to find a name in the industry. Han Sun Woo is about to hold an exhibition of his photos, but he thinks it’s all a lie and decides to postpone it.
After the lyrics are rejected once again, Lee Eun Soo goes on a drinking spree. Like a faithful friend, Han Sun Woo is there for her. The two have a conversation about one-sided love which is also the theme of her rejected lyrics. He says something very meaningful, and she’s surprised to find him so knowledgeable on the subject. She asks him to stay with her for two weeks so she can be inspired by him and complete the task. He is set to leave Korea again after two weeks, and she has two weeks to rewrite the lyrics. He agrees to live with her for two weeks, saying that his manager’s girlfriend moved in for two weeks and he has nowhere to go and he can also help her write the lyrics. The two go to clean Eun Soo’s house.
In a flashback scene from four years ago, Sun Woo comes second in a photography contest. The conversation shifts to dating and men. When Mari tells Eun Soo to date Sun Woo, Eun Soo says that she won’t date him because if they break up, they can’t be friends anymore. On the same word, Sun Woo had decided to confess to Eun Soo, but upon listening to Eun Soo, he decides not to proceed with the plan.
The first episode set starting marks for the story. Park Hyung Sik as Han Sun Woo is a charming character. His eyes alone are emotional enough to let the audience know that he is in love with Cha Eun Soo. Han So Hee as Lee Eun Soo is a bubbly and cheerful character. While Sun Woo is a man of few words, Eun Soo is an open book that speaks out his heart. The two stars bring that thrilling chemistry and complement each other wonderfully. They perform their roles with an ease and comfort that every scene feels completely natural. Han So Hee, who we saw in However and My name shows a new side was Cha Eun Soo while Hyung Sik continues to add more nuance to his skills by choosing roles that have nuance to further showcase his abilities.
The music accompanying each scene is soft and dark, tinged with sadness. The remaining three episodes will tell the story of Eun Soo and Sun Woo in more detail as they spend two weeks together and address the questions of the heart that have gone unanswered and unanswered for years. The creators of the show used the setting of a winter season to show the story of the protagonists. The winter season is synonymous with love and heartbreak. For a story that tells a tale of both, the choice is a good one.
The episode is only 43 minutes long, but doesn’t feel dragged. Watching the interactions and chemistry between the tracks warms the heart. It sets up some heartbreak, but then again, what good is a heartbreak story without a huge dose of “what ifs”?
