The artists express admiration because that Hong-do’s recording skills, and produksi a stupid, smirky challenge (Park Shin apa seems to think he’s still acting in war of Money…), that drops Yoon-bok choose a hot potato, and walks off, commanding her to follow. She does, she tail in between her legs.

Hong-do come in the classroom, untuk membuat a commanding, tense very first impression. He’s obviously bermain with the students’ fear and also respect because that him, like any an excellent teacher does. (Ha!)

Yoon-bok brings the screen up come the front because that him, and sits down. Hyo-won bawa pulang this chance to kiss part ass, and welcomes Hong-do, presenting himself as the class leader, and also ordering the other students to greet him. Teacher’s pets wannabe.

Interspersed with these scene of the very first lesson space scenes of Jeong-jo and Jeong-soon playing Chinese chess. It’s a tense match, and jelas transcends the game to a less visible battle of wits and also force. V every move they make on the board, lock make dari mereka own points on even if it is Hong-do will certainly or won’t carry out a an excellent job, with Jeong-jo ~ above Hong-do’s side, and Jeong-soon the contrary him. The game metaphor has been done countless times in various other dramas, but, if excellent well, it tidak pernah fails to wake up me. As it melakukan here.

Jeong-jo comments that he’s doing fine in the video game only due to the fact that Jeong-soon is therefore lenient with him. And she replies, v a wonderful look that strength and charisma, “Is the so?”, and also pretty lot proceeds to kick his ass. Jeong-jo praises her, and she says, “We’ll have actually to untuk mengambil this game to the an extremely end, won’t we?” Dude, did I hanya get goosebumps?

Meanwhile, Hong-do orders the students come copy a painting precisely the method it is…except upside down. He instructs them come paint apa they see, not maafkan saya they think they see. It’s critical difference.

As the students space working on their paintings, Hong-do asks them, “What is painting?” The students all reach for their textbooks for the answer, however he stops them, instructing them to tell him their personal thoughts on what, specifically painting is. Ha. Reminds me of the moment my high school drama teacher request the class what art is, and wouldn’t let united state leave till we’d answered to his satisfaction. Ah, memories.

*

Ahem. Anyway. The students answer one by one, making commonplace, evident answers, kemudian as “Painting is placing what you check out onto the page with your brush”. Hyo-won makes a decent shot in ~ it, saying “Drawing is grasping whatever that will at some point disappear, and recording castle down.” Hong-do enables him some applause, kemudian asks that his name. Hyo-won kekuasaan a long, convoluted answer, membuat sure come tell him who his dad is, etc, and Hong-do cuts him turun a couple of pegs, pretty lot saying the he talks as well much, and also that he should shut up. Ha!

Hong-do it s okay angry, yelling in ~ them for not also thinking as soon as about apa painting is, as soon as they’re studying at the Dohwaseo. What kind that students are they?

*

Then he notices the Yoon-bok is still drawing by herself, oblivious to what’s walk on roughly her. The calls on her, and also orders her to tell him what she thinks painting is. And Yoon-bok buatlah a surprising answer: “Painting is longing.”

Hong-do’s intrigued, especially dari she’s using a bermain on words here – “painting” and “longing” room very comparable in Korean. That asks she to elaborate, therefore she says “Longing turns into paintings, and also paintings menjadi longing as well.”

Yoon-bok: “If you’re longing for someone, kemudian because they keep coming come mind, you end up painting them. Thus, longing i do not care a painting.”Hong-do: “The person you long for i do not care a painting? and then?”Yoon-bok: “Also, even after you’ve forgotten, every time you look in ~ the painting, you lengthy for that person once more. Thus, wouldn’t the be the same as the painting becoming longing?”Hong-do: “So looking in ~ a painting reasons you to feeling longing.”Yoon-bok: “Yes. So…so…Isn’t paint the very same as to express longing?”

Hong-do’s impressed, and the students space shocked and wowed.

Sometime later, Hong-do gives the college student a piece of homework: The standard nine dots collection out in three rows. They room instructed to uncover a means to attach all the dots together with only 4 straight lines, there is no lifting the brush from the page.

Tee hee. Ns remember make the efforts to figure that out in elementary school school…Guess lock did the in the Joseon era, too? Heh.

*

Upon discovering that Hong-do is instructing the students come copy a paint upside down, Byeok-soo (aka Hyo-won’s dad) visits a freaky old guy (Heo Shim, one elder painter) and asks him apa it means. Heo Shim speak him that he’s doing the in bespeak to see the students’ ability at painting with anda eyes, and also not with their minds. That way, he have the right to pinpoint dari mereka differences. Heo Shim asks Byeok-soo that did such a thing, and also Byeok-soo tells him it to be Danwon (Hong-do). Heo Shim laughs in his freaky way, speak the Dohwaseo has actually suddenly ini adalah a much much more interesting place.

The male in charge of the examination tells Byeok-soo the it’s been determined that, if castle don’t find the culprit, then not just Danwon’s, but their hands could get crushed, too. That wouldn’t be really pleasant, eh?

Outside, Hyo-won and his friend are eavesdropping on the conversation. Lock haven’t heard much, though, only the words “crushing the hand” and “Danwon”, and they make the presumption that if castle don’t solve the puzzle, Hong-do will acquire their tangan crushed, and also run off to call the various other students.

The students all frantically job-related at resolving the puzzle, but no one is able come make any headway. Yoon-bok appears to it is in the just one who isn’t stressing out around it.

The evil Jo-nyon visits a shop the he’s in fee of. The “manager” shows him a painting that the bought indigenous a young student painter – they’ve been having actually a nice steady organization relationship, and the artist is claimed to fall by later on with a brand-new work. The paint is “Spring the atmosphere Covers every Places” by Shin Yoon-bok. Jo-nyon notices the signature seal on one of the paintings, “Il Wol mountain In”, and also keeps repeating it to himself.

And, of course, it’s revealed the Yoon-bok is the one making and offering these paintings.

Hong-do mirrors his friend, Yin-moon, who’s a fellow painter, the upside-down paints that the college student made. They’re all fairly mediocre, and unlike the initial painting in ~ all. And then Hong-do reflects him the painting that Yoon-bok made, i beg your pardon is exactly like the original. Yin-moon tries come look in ~ the name on the painting, and Hong-do stops him, telling him that the time isn’t best yet.

The students all get bersama and have actually a tiny night feast (with food carried by the 35-year-old student’s wife), and shot to fix the puzzle together. Yoon-bok argues that, by breaking out outside of the dots, the puzzle mungkin be solved. However Hyo-won calls the an idiot, saying the they’re supposed to solve it by keeping the lines within the dots. Yoon-bok wonders why that is. Great subtle method of menampilkan the distinction in Yoon-bok’s thinking, and how her jenius comes in part from the fact that she thinks exterior of conventions.

*
*

The next day, Hong-do mirrors them the answer: they did, indeed, have to awal outside that the dots in order to settle the puzzle. As they’re gift punished, Yoon-bok says that, then, there would certainly be a method of connecting all the dots with hanya three lines together well. Hong-do dismisses her, saying over there isn’t a way. Yet Yoon-bok presses the issue, speak “There is a way. We hanya haven’t uncovered it yet.”

*

Hong-do tells she to demonstrate, for this reason she it s okay up and melakukan so – by drawing a huge “Z”, Zorro style. (Chil Woo flashbacks, anyone?) however Hong-do says that it’s not foolproof, darimana the middle line doesn’t go through the middle row the dots in a perfectly right line. Yet Yoon-bok insists that it’s right – providing a mini geometry lesson, she talks around angles, and also how, the smaller they get, the straighter the currently get. Thus, if the “Z” is extended horizontally to infinite amounts, kemudian eventually, one should be able to make a straight line with the middle row the dots.

Hong-do envisions maafkan saya she’s saying, and he’s pretty much placed in a position in i m sorry he deserve to a) acknowledge that she’s right, and he was wrong, and also thus lose face in former of the class, or b) not identify it, and also be a jerk. After ~ a pause, he claims that what she’s saying is nonsense, since an price should have the ability to be viewed by everyone in stimulate to it is in relevant. That asks she if it’s kelayakan for her to display them maafkan saya she means. She states yes, yet she needs as much paper and ink as she wants. Hong-do tries to action on her part more, speak “So if friend don’t have actually an tak terbatas amount of paper or ink, you can’t present us maafkan saya you mean?”. Yoon-bok, not one come lose, says “It juga means that, if i do have an infinite amount of record and ink, i can display you.” Buuuuuuurn!

Hong-do manages to slip out of the situation by saying, “Until the day that this puzzle deserve to be solved, we have to keep it in our hearts. End of class.” Dude. What a loser. But maafkan saya an wonderful scene in ~ the same time! The 2 of them may be teacher and student, yet they’re tambahan rivals, in a really interesting way. And also I like just how Hong-do is put in a an overwhelming situation, and comes the end the lesser (hu)man. Plus, the visuals are hanya really awesomely done here.

The boys all go off come a kisaeng home for a night of to chat (it’s Hyo-won’s birthday, and also he’s also hired a famous kisaeng to play the gayageum – an old Korean string instrument – because that them).

*

Meanwhile, Yoon-bok isn’t with the other boys, however seems come be prepare to leaving anyway. She even puts on a fake moustache. Hong-do, comes to speak to her, sees her leaving quite by chance, and decides to monitor her.

Yoon-bok at some point notices that someone’s complying with her, and also hides among a group of diners, regulating to shake the off her trail. Satisfied, she goes to watch a vendor, to whom she sell an erotic painting – “A Young young Plucking an Azalea”. He gives her lima nyang, clear ripping her off, the old fart. She leaves, and another group of client come in, to who he automatically shows the paint he hanya bought. They comment on it, talking about the cunning expression ~ above the woman’s face, the method she’s jutting the end her hips, the means the male is grabbing her arm, etc. They panggilan the artist a genius, and also the vendor meminta 50 nyang. Yoon-bok eavesdrops on every this, flattered, and really not very annoyed the she got so little money.

*

Unfortunately, Hong-do is right behind her, and although she pretends that she doesn’t understand who he is, without any type of delay, the rips off she moustache, revealing her. Ns don’t recognize why this scene is in slow-motion, with kemudian dramatic music. Probably as a way of highlighting the crossdressing theme?

The 2 of them walk for drinks, and Hong-do meminta why she’s been offering these paintings. Transforms out she wasn’t law it for the money, but just because she enjoyed the kebenaran that orang seemed to like them so much. He looks in ~ the paint (how walk he get a copy?), and asks exactly how she pertained to draw this. She replies, simply, “I hanya painted maafkan saya I saw.”

*

Then, nonchalantly, and also quite suddenly, Hong-do asks, “Why go you draw that woman’s back? The woman holding the straw hat?” He’s jernih talking around the painting over which all the hoohaha is erupting, and also Yoon-bok is take away aback. Somewhat transforming the subject, however acknowleding the it was her work-related at the same time, she says, “It wasn’t a straw hat. It was a buddhist nun’s hat.” Hong-do isn’t having any type of of that, however.

Hong-do: “Why did you draw her back?”Yoon-bok: “That is…That woman’s back…There to be something berbeda there. The felt prefer something heartbreaking.”

The conversation escalates, with Yoon-bok getting more and an ext excited as she describes the feeling she acquired as, without even thinking, she grabbed her paintbrush and also started drawing. The dunia around her disappeared, and also all that she mungkin see was her painting. Hong-do eggs her on, saying, “You tercapai the state of pure altruism!”, and Yoon-bok’s awed and also excited.

*
*

And then, together he’s wont to do, that switches tack in ~ the speed of light, and also becomes sombre. Yoon-bok asks, ‘What’s wrong?”. That’s when Hong-do decides come tell her the the one that made that painting will be punished by having actually his hand crushed under a fallout’s stone. Nice timing, buddy.

Hong-do: “Why did friend create such a painting? maafkan saya use is your talent now? friend won’t even have the ability to hold a brush anymore!”Yoon-bok: “What do you mean, ns won’t be able to hold a brush?”Hong-do: “Don’t you understand maafkan saya I’m saying? Tomorrow, in ~ the Dohwaseo, they’ll untuk mengambil the culprit who made that painting, and crush his hand under the stone! you won’t be able to do anything anymore!”Yoon-bok: “My hand will be crushed, teacher? Is that paint so immoral? maafkan saya did I carry out that was so wrong? You stated it was the state of absolute altruism! It’s just a painting! How can one painting…It doesn’t make any kind of sense. No. How deserve to one painting…”

Absolutely get rid of with shock and distress, Yoon-bok it s okay up and also leaves, skipping Hong-do’s phone call for her to sit down. Yeah, friend really taken on that one nicely, Hong-do. Bravo.

Yoon-bok walks, dazed and also with tears in her eyes, through the market, remembering her memories as a child, as soon as her dad (NOT her present adoptive father) teach her just how to repaint by producing shadows through his hands on the walls, and also having her paint the butterfly that he was shaping. Interestingly, she tambahan remembers the scene in the pasar when she and also Hong-do very first met, as soon as Hong-do was trying to provide her töre on exactly how to recreate his painting. The two essential teachers in she life? Also, bulan Geun Young is just awesome in this scene.

Somehow, she winds up in former of the kisaeng house, and also one that the kisaeng notices she and takes her inside, to whereby her fellow students are still celebrating.

*

Once she arrives, Hyo-won, ever before the bully, tells she to untuk mengambil a very, very besar shot of alcohol. Castle jeer at her, calling she “girly” and also saying she bisa never carry out it. Miserable and feeling reckless, she ambil the drink and downs it in one go. One quip I have here: No influential Adam’s Apple! melakukan no one rather notice? Yeesh.

Predictably, it turns out that the Lesbian Kisaeng from sebelum (who, yes, actually has actually a name – it’s Jeong-hyang) is the one giving the entertainment with her gayageum. The boys fawn end her, and, favor an ass, Hyo-won tells her to forget her instrument, and also to come sit top top his lap. Jeong-hyang is all, “Ha! In her dreams, bitch.” Okay, therefore she doesn’t to speak that. Yet she’d might as well.

A drunk Yoon-bok speaks up. Permit the flirting recommence!

*

Yoon-bok: “You’re as thorny as ever.”Jeong-hyang: “The more thorns the flower has, the more beautiful that is.”Yoon-bok: “This is the an initial time I’ve seen a flower panggilan itself beautiful.”Jeong-hyang: “A flower doesn’t stop being beautiful hanya because it calls itself beautiful.”Yoon-bok: “What melakukan it issue if a flower’s beautiful, if nobody notices it?”Jeong-hyang: “The flower merely exists. Whether it is beautiful or no is merely the passing malu of measurement.”

One of the drunken students choose this minute to throw a cup at Jeong-hyang, resulting in a string on she gayageum to break. The other students chastise him, and Hyo-won once again bring away the chance to tell she that, dari her instrument is broken, she’d might too come and drink v them instead. Being her regular Sassy Sally self, without a word, Jeong-hyang just states the surname of the song, and also without lagi ado, starts playing.

*
*

She starts off with a fast, rousing number, and then switches come a slow, melancholic one. Of every the students, Yoon-bok is the just one who appears to be yes, really touched by the music – and also Jeong-hyang notices. In an certain breathtaking scene, she and also Jeong-hyang space transported come a eco-friendly mountainside, in which Yoon-bok watches, tears in her eyes, as her younger diri sendiri and she parents walk, half-dancing, dibawah the mountain, a photo of senang family life. (Random note: Squee! Hottie Extraordinaire Han Jung Soo plays her dad!!

)

Yoon-bok and also Jeong-hyang’s eye meet, the connection in between them reinforced. The moment is broken as the students awal applauding, and also Yoon-bok gets up to leave. Sebelum she does, however, she quietly tells Jeong-hyang, “It to be the an extremely best performance.”

Hong-do, that incidentally is continuing to be with the friend that his, Yin-moon, is menampilkan him that erotic paint of Yoon-bok’s, and is lamenting the fact that such talent will be going come waste. Yin-moon advises him that Hong-do’s hand bisa be the one the winds increase crushed. Yet Hong-do is still looking for a way to conserve Yoon-bok’s hand.

Outside, his friend’s sister, Jung-sook, is waiting through refreshments. She has actually a huge crush top top Hong-do, and seems to have actually liked him darimana she was a tiny girl. Hong-do, of course, is oblivious.

The Evil organization of evil – er, I average the angry Counsel(?), aka Jeong-soon’s uncle, brother, Byeok-soo, and also Jo-nyeon – are discussing, that else? Hong-do. And anda worry over maafkan saya they check out as his brewing attempts to lug to light apa happened ten years back – everything that is. Jo-nyeon speak them not to worry too much. If the culprit is someone who possesses talent the Hong-do himself acknowledges, kemudian Hong-do will make certain that the talent doesn’t walk to waste. But if that tries to save the student, only among two things can take place to him: His hand will certainly be the one that’s crushed, or he’ll leave when again.

Jeong-hyang leaves the students, and Yoon-bok confronts her, asking her to permainan the gayageum for her again. She uses to pay the money the she earned because that her paint earlier. Jeong-hyang tells her the she’s precious much much more than that, but Yoon-bok insists the it’s every the money she has. Jeong-hyang tries to leave, however in an interesting twist top top the traditional K-drama trope, Yoon-bok take away her eight as she passes by. Ha! Bet bulan Geun Young’s selalu wanted to shot that. I recognize I have.

“This hand will certainly be no more once tomorrow comes. These lima nyang are the money i earned from marketing the terakhir painting ns made v this hand. I want to spend the final night penampilan this sale. With the music from that gayageum.”
