Some ‘Color of Woman’ fans may hate me but I want to see more interaction between So Ra and Chan Jin – at least let me dream that there will be more interaction between them ….
Anyway – episode 3 ended when, So Ra sees Jin Joo and Joon Soo coming out from the same house (Joon Soo’s house). Joon Soo tries to explain So Ra that nothing happened. Although, as everyone already knows, I am rooting like crazy for Chan Jin, I must confess, I also love how Joon Soo tries to explain himself in front of So Ra.
At the company, Joon Soo’s secretary tells him there is an event in Chong Soon district – now he and Chan Jin remember that during their collage days they had a MT in that district. Joon Soo goes to the director to tell her that he will go to the event in Chong Soon. After Joon Soo leaves her office, deputy section chief Song says she and So Ra should go with Joon Soo because apparently So Ra “has a special knack for ruining things”.
During their trip, thinking that deputy section chief Song was asleep, Joon Soo asked So Ra if she remembers Chong Soon district, So Ra says he remembers but acts as she wouldn’t care/doesn’t give big importance.
Joon Soo: Because I had wanted to ride a time machine and go back 10 years with you
So Ra: what for?
Joon Soo: that time when we took those fresh-as-baby-chicks on our MT trip….time does fly
There was one baby chick that I had my eyes on. She wasn’t very pretty or even cute. but she squawked really loud and was super smart. One that was brash, had no manners, and hated to lose in anything.
So Ra: Stop it, none of that stuff from the past is interesting at all.
He also starts explaining (again) to So Ra that between him and Jin Joo nothing happened.
And well, because So Ra and Joon Soo left on that trip, Jin Joo and Chan Jin spend a lot of time together.
Jin Joo: until now, I’ve never once been ‘just friends’ with a man. To be honest, there have been many times watching you and So Ra when I have been jealous. You know, no matter how good a person is, oncec you’ve dated, you become enemies.(….)
Chan Jin: It’s thanks to So Ra, you know. She makes it so that there is no self-interest at all.
Jin Joo: do you think it’s possible for you and I to be like you and So Ra, and be ‘cool’ friends?
Joon Soo: it wasn’t because of you, it was beause I was scared.
So Ra: It was a memory that was embarrassing and hurtful, and one that I never wanted to think about again. But what is it? ” Not yet”? It’s really unbelievable….
Joon Soo: how do you think I felt? Do you know how pathetic and ashamed I was of myself for running away? That’s why it was that much harder for me to talk about it. But all you did was avoid me…
So Ra: it’s because I thought you really didn’t want anything to do with me. Thanks to you, I’ve always thought that I was so unattractive that men would run away from me. That’s the unerasable image I had of myself. It’s haunted me.
Joon Soo: that day’s memory has always haunted and followed me, too. I felt like a fool and I felt sorry.
Why didn’t I know all this time that So Ra was special?
