Associations get intricate this 7 days in the wake of new challenges, and already perplexing feelings get even far more so. How correct are our thoughts? Can we belief our inner thoughts? How can we convey to what our coronary heart definitely desires?

There is just way too significantly likely on in this drama, and not in a superior way. Even though I adore the quick dips into stories of other athletes, it is just far too much to monitor our main characters and add all these single-episode aspect figures in there far too. Even even though the plot doesn’t feel rushed, it feels out of concentration. I overlook who I’m intended to care about most, or whose tale this really is.

Baffling feelings are the name of the match, while, for many of our people this 7 days. After her giggly hallway confession and Gil’s apparent distress, Mu-gyeol wrist-grabs Ga-eul and drags her off scene. I drastically sympathized with his, “Yah! Cha Ga-eul!” — 50 percent betrayed considering the fact that her heart was supposed to be for him, and 50 % horrified that she’s fallen for the outdated person psychological coach (or just thinks she has?).

Gil tries to explain — rationally — what is likely on in her emotions, and we get a total lot of concerned chatter among him and Dr. Park, and him and Ga-eul about emotional transference. And afterwards, counter-transference. Whomp whomp!

For Ga-eul to set all her positive feelings and gratefulness towards Gil and oversight it for affection will make perception for me, and I can trip out this little plot line all suitable. Except is that what’s heading on? I are not able to explain to where by the drama is getting this “romance,” and that problems me.

For all of Gil’s distress and balking above her attachment to him, he does not look to be ready to detach himself both, even with trying to be a rational grownup. This will come to a head when Ga-eul hits a main crisis (far more on that later) and he literally operates off like a lunatic to uncover and embrace her, nervous about generally staying too late to help save people in his lifetime, and wondering that this is the instant he’s been obtaining premonitions of. But not so. In its place, Ga-eul claims she’s ok now that he’s around, and they share an embrace.

Dr. Park watches from afar and holds Gil accountable for his blended signals to Ga-eul which, to his credit history, he’s fantastic for. It was counter-transference, he clarifies. And positive sufficient, we noticed flashbacks of his most vulnerable moments as a child and how he displaced those people thoughts on to Ga-eul and as a result ran to secure her (like he experienced wanted to be in a position to do for himself). That’s all nicely and very good, but this crush is nonetheless not solved, and Ga-eul insists at each and every switch that she’s so content and she’ll just carry on to like him from afar and have her inner thoughts for herself.

That would be alright, I guess (?), but she’s a giggley schoolgirl in entrance of him and not only glomps him when he seems at the rink, but plants a kiss on him also. It is harmless ample, but there are two matters going on below: what the heck is with his reaction, and of training course the kiss is secretly captured by a awful teammate of Ga-eul.

While this uncomfortable display of passion is going on, it’s played against a equally baffled dynamic concerning Mu-gyeol and skating sunbae HAN YEO-WOON (Kim Shi-eun), who has been so forgettably tangential that I haven’t experienced much to say about her.

Yeo-woon has a extended-standing friendship with Mu-gyeol, but now he’s baffled about his inner thoughts since it’s made clear that Yeo-woon feels extra for him, but he claims he likes Ga-eul. And nonetheless — as Ga-eul so fearlessly details out to him — when the two girls experienced an incident on the ice, which a single did he run to very first?

Mu-gyeol is baffled about his coronary heart, so he runs to our preferred psychological coach, who gives excellent advice… but also, he appears to be bewildered about his very own coronary heart too. And so is Dr. Park, who seems to like Gil. And then there’s Tae-male, who seems to like Dr. Park. But, the strange part is, all of these sights and crushes are a little bit undermined by the how-do-I-trust-my-coronary heart vibes, so it is really hard to get completely at the rear of any of it, frankly. At least for now.

Also, the point that the Mu-gyeol/Yeo-woon romance helps make so a great deal sense (and I very like them with each other even if the sunbae would seem so inadequately miscast) concerns me, since it indicates that the Ga-eul crush on Gil will materialize into an actual partnership. This is the last spot I wished the drama to go — for numerous explanations — and I’m hopping as they tease it out we won’t conclusion up with them as a couple. Because I may possibly have to resort to my very own traveling sidekick.

In addition to all of the puzzled hearts this 7 days, we have all the aspect plots, which (as I pointed out in advance of) are just also significantly. There is the nationwide fairy gymnast who’s ostracized and depressing and needs to give up her sport. Even with Gil’s counsel she cannot discover a way out, and winds up purposefully falling through a regimen to get herself out of the hell she’s in. Oof.

Then there is the taekwondo athlete who’s the son of a person of the No Medal Clubbers, and in his match, Gil has significant flashbacks of his very own thoroughly unfair ruling many years in the past with Tae-guy. All the plot beats — the gymnast who will get blatantly favored, the taekwondo athlete who wins following bribing the ref, Mentor Oh’s endless match rigging, and even Moo-tae’s betrayal — point to the identical corruption that we began this story with. It is finding to the level the place it all feels hopeless. Each sport appears rigged, each individual athlete pressured and manipulated, and the athletes experience whilst the sponsors and politicians and leaders participate in their playing cards and gain their video games.

Wherever is it all going to stop? Obtaining rid of Mentor Oh and Tae-guy and even the assemblyman is no lengthier sufficient, so I’m thinking the place the drama is going to just take all this, with only two more weeks to go. Absolutely noping out of professional athletics and signing up for the No Medal Club isn’t the only way to be a authentic victor.

So where do we stand at the finish of the episodes? Gil has stop his job in a fury, and also to guard Ga-eul since the photographs of their rink-side kiss have been captured and despatched straight to Tae-male. Gil appears pushed to the brink, and he issues Tae-person to a rematch.

As for Ga-eul, her coronary heart is baffled (or is it?), but she’s had a great deal of healing with her earlier. The notorious night from four yrs back, we master, was heading in the assault way (disgusting!). Coach Oh made a transfer, but Ga-eul took off, and then undesirable was manufactured even worse when Yeo-woon turned her eye to it, as she states. In the current-working day, when Yeo-woon receives her cancer prognosis and decides to leave the nationwide crew to concentration on therapy, it also serves as a healing minute involving her and Ga-eul. This was sorely wanted, given that Ga-eul experienced misplaced every person and is now gaining them back. And I in fact really favored this storyline for Yeo-woon, I just really don’t know why I discover her character so unlikeable.

Anyway, in the end I’m flummoxed. I really don’t know what the drama is attempting to do with their information and most of all with these like lines and transference crushes. I want to maintain religion that the drama will keep legitimate to the interior healing it is been about, but I just never know how they’re going to pull it all alongside one another. There is continue to a great deal of healing to go for all of our people.
