It’s superb to see how people will be so observant, but so obstinate at occasions. We are able to spend our whole lives assembly the identical individuals, doing the identical issues, following the identical patterns till sooner or later, the sunshine falls just a bit in a different way and leaves us with a brand new perspective. Loopy, actually.
The second episode of Soundtrack #1 plops us proper in the midst of this private reformation. Solar-woo (Park Hyung-sik) wakes up from an evening of ingesting with Eun-soo (Han So-hee) in his arms. He takes a second to bask in her options, and the burden of his emotions bears down on him. “That is loopy,” he mutters to himself, and the magic dispels as Eun-soo opens her eyes. Awkwardness ensues, with each making a fast escape to get on with the day. As is the norm with them, nevertheless, it doesn’t final lengthy.
Whereas stepping out to refresh their minds later within the day, Eun-soo will get a name from Kang Woo-il (Kim Joo-hun), the composer with whom she’s collaborating. He calls her right down to the studio to transient her on an up to date demo for his or her tune. Not desirous to move up the chance, she rushes to the studio with Solar-woo in tow.
Funnily, regardless of his guarantees to maintain his emotions below wraps, Solar-woo’s phrases and actions belie his emotions. Whereas out on a stroll with Eun-soo, he confesses that he desires to do all the things for “Jennifer” (who’s, in truth, Eun-soo herself). Whereas stopping at a comfort retailer to fulfill Eun-soo’s yearning for chocolate, he confesses that he solely claimed liking goodies as a result of she had a candy tooth. Equally, on the studio, he’s childishly jealous, making faces on the producer’s descriptions and outing Eun-soo’s disdain for mandarins when the producer fingers her a drink.
Solar-woo’s conduct grates on Eun-soo’s nerves, along with her frustration changing into a full-blown argument between the 2 on the way in which again. She calls out Solar-woo for being overly vital of the blokes in her life, however earlier than he can clarify himself, he removes himself from the scenario and heads to his personal studio to chill off.
On the studio, he tells his pal and enterprise associate Dong-hyeon (Yoon Byung-hee) that he plans to admit to Eun-soo earlier than he leaves the nation. Dong-hyeon – a part of the entourage who can clearly see Solar-woo’s emotions for Eun-soo – is simply relieved that Solar-woo isn’t retiring.
Similar to the awkwardness of the morning, the combat between Solar-woo and Eun-soo dissipates simply as shortly. There may be, nevertheless, one other hurdle ready for them again at house – Eun-soo’s mom (Lee Jung-eun), who appears to be as eccentric as she is lifeless in opposition to the concept of her daughter sharing an area with a person (even when the person is her greatest pal of 19 years).
She topics Solar-woo to an impromptu tarot card studying. Mockingly, his playing cards reveal what we’ve identified all this whereas, after which some extra: he loves somebody endlessly, however she’s impossibly distant – maybe a nod to the truth that Eun-soo appears to be oblivious to Solar-woo’s emotions. As her mom leaves, she offers Solar-woo the final card as a fortunate appeal.
In a while, over dinner, Eun-soo asks Solar-woo whether or not he understood what Producer Kang had stated about unrequited love earlier within the day – that it felt like being alone on a cold winter night time at 4:40am within the morning. Solar-woo muses he was referring to the loneliness of the hour, and Eun-soo – in her quest to know unrequited love – suggests they expertise it for themselves.
Once they lastly step out within the morning, it’s clear we’re watching two completely different tales play out. For Eun-soo – wrapped up in Solar-woo’s scarf – the hour is heat and effusive as the 2 stroll down a silent avenue. She’s experiencing being alone, however with another person, as if hiding away in a young bubble. Then again, Solar-woo – who slowly retains giving freely elements of himself – stands within the midst of that loneliness. Eun-soo could also be by his facet, however he can solely attain her with “the information of his fingertips”.
There may be, nevertheless, an imminent break within the sample. As we attain the top of the second chapter, Eun-soo occurs upon Solar-woo’s laptop computer. On it, she finds photos of a visit she’d taken with Solar-woo a while in the past, the very ones Solar-woo claimed he’d deleted. That’s not all – by the point Solar-woo walks in, Eun-soo’s already found his trove: folders upon folders of images of Eun-soo relationship again to the early days of their friendship.
- There could also be extra to the tarot studying in any case: the final card that Solar-woo pulled out had the image of a pair with their fingers intertwined, with a compass within the foreground. It might presumably level to Solar-woo and Eun-soo’s present scenario – proper beside one another, however distanced resulting from their hidden emotions. Eun-soo’s mom appears to have picked up on the identical factor, which is why she left Solar-woo with the cardboard.
