We take a small break from Dan Oh to focus on some of the other characters’ progression from a comic character to a person with self-awareness. Will this change how we feel about their place in the story, or are they all destined to play out the part they were given?
The story has changed
Wow! Talk about suddenly having a whole new plot arc. We left off with Ha Ru being able to change the story, only to have Baek Kyung jump into the place of our leading man, declaring that he and Dan Oh are officially together. For realsies this time. Dan Oh is forced to go along with this new twist until the stage is replaced by the shadow world. At which time, she pushes Baek Kyung away and rushes after Ha
Uhm…Why is there suddenly a mystery, possibly a half brother, of Baek Kyung coming on screen? He seems very invested in Dan Oh and his brother’s relationship and we later see Baek Kyung confronting his brother’s interest in his fiancee. Am I the only one that feels that this character came out of
I like you for realsies
Dan Oh is not the only person trying to change their fate. Remember second lead Do Hwa who had dragged Joo Da away from the party? He gets the guts up to confess to her in the shadow stage. More surprising is the fact that she doesn’t seem overly upset at the idea but instead states that it feels like her feelings are wrong.

Suspicious Squid Fairy
We get multiple scenes between Squid Fairy and Ha Ru. Somehow Squid Fairy understands why Ha Ru is in pain, explaining that the more Ha
I’ll help her no matter what
I’m the most manly man
Turns out that helping Dan Oh involves a lot of manly one-upmanship with Baek Kyung. I can’t help but notice that these two have crazy chemistry together. The writer/director might have noticed the same thing since there are at least three to four angsty stare-offs in today’s episodes.
Ha Ru has some surprising skills
Ha Ru also discovers that he has some interesting talents, all of them indicating that he might be from some sageuk based story? Have to admit that I burst out laughing once he started belting out some songs on the flute. You can’t be a manly man in a historical if you can’t serenade a girl with your fluting.
Can we just stop with the wrist grabbing
One thing that has also happened way
Saving you is my destruction
Baek Kyung awakes
Dan Oh rushes to the library searching for the book to confirm her worst fears. Instead she finds Baek Kyung with the novel, completely aware that he is in a story and that things have been happening around him without his knowledge. Baek Kyung is finally self aware. SQUEEE! I can’t wait to find out where this story arc goes next week.
We know that somehow Ha
