Aaand saved by the boyfriend!; ;w;
college should be $25
Can we all collectively talk about this scene?
From the beginning, Youngdo has made an emphasis on how his mother left him at a young age. The lack of compassion and tenderness from a mother has made him a bitter sociopath, bullying the Social Care group and doing anything to steal Eunsang away from Kim Tan as some sort of revenge.
Now to this scene. It can be suggested from the genuine shock in his face that he has never had a homemade meal, a symbol of a mother’s love for her children. He realizes the significance in the middle of eating as a million of thoughts run through his mind. Anger, sadness and maybe even bitterness that Eunsang has such a loving mother. But he instead of complaining and whining as he did in the first few eps he ends up being thankful and grateful for the meal; delivering a heartwrenching “It’s so delicious” because that’s all he can really say to his crush’s mother without making the entire scene awkward.
This act of kindness from a mother becomes the catalyst for Youngdo’s epiphany later in the episode, understanding that his attitude towards his mother leaving was immature and a shameful way to remember her and all that she was.
In that moment, I swear we are all Kang Ye Seul.
HE WAS GOING TO DIE AND HE USED HIS REMAINING STRENGTH TO FREE HER… THIS IS HOW YOU OTP
YOUR OTP COULD NEVER
I often see things online about how Eugene should have waited to be saved, then cut her hair, or that he shouldn’t have cut as much, etc. but I feel like those people are missing the entire point.
Ok first of all, Eugene had waited for Rapunzel to heal him, who knows what would have happened, because Mother Gothel could have come and taken her away immediately. He instead makes the selfless decision with the little bit of strength that he has, to risk his own life in order to save Rapunzel. But more importantly: Eugene was selfish his entire life - mainly because nobody was ever looking out for him. He grew up poor and in an orphanage, so he had to be selfish in order to survive, which is why he turned to thieving. This moment is the moment where everything changes. It is the one time in his life that he puts someone else first.
Second: The symbolism behind the fact that he cuts her hair should tell you everything. All of Rapunzel’s life the only person who she ever knew to love her, didn’t actually love her, but she loved her hair. Gothel was always shown looking, talking to and kissing Rapunzel’s hair, and not really ever Rapunzel herself. Eugene, on the other hand, fell in love with Rapunzel the PERSON. He saw her as another human being, and he saw her heart. That is why he cut her hair - her hair didn’t matter to him because the magic was INSIDE her. He knew that and thus knew that even as he died, she would live a happy life because of how beautiful she is on the inside.
