We’ve hit the halfway level of the quirky “Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter,” and because the overarching thriller is getting an increasing number of intriguing, a lot of the characters are additionally taking a one-way ticket all the way down to Heartbreak City.
This week’s entry will focus extra on some predictions going ahead in addition to among the burning questions we have been left with after watching this week’s episodes.
Disclaimer: Given that I’ve not learn the unique webtoon, nor am I Nostradamus, the predictions are largely simply foolish with a pinch of wishful pondering. Also, spoilers forward!
What is the purpose of the magical trio?
This would be the final time I grumble about these three. First, I’m past grateful that this week, they lastly make it off the fishing boat and arrive at Yiwon University. BUT, if that’s all that there’s, then what was the purpose of this facet journey within the first place? We had a glimmer of hope when Fairy Oh (Hwang Young Hee) met her husband look-alike, however nothing ever got here of it, no new details about the winged gown was disclosed, and this specific story line is simply dropped. So sadly, it’s simply one other week of comparatively inconsequential scenes.
You and me each, brother!
Prediction: Because I refuse to imagine these three might be that unimportant to the principle story line, I’m hedging my bets on Shin Seon’s (Kim Min Kyu) final magical bean enjoying an necessary position within the story shifting ahead: The final bean is one that may reveal all of 1’s previous transgressions (which might additionally clarify why Fairy Oh mentioned it was harmful). And whereas Master of the Northern Star gave it to Shin Seon as a option to train him a lesson, it’s ultimately used on both Yi Hyun or Lee Ji to disclose a key half in their backstory.
How are Yi Hyun, Lee Ji, and the deer associated?
This is one deliciously complicated thriller, and I can’t await extra items of the puzzle to be revealed! These three characters are clearly interconnected, however the query is how? So far, we’ve gotten flashes of each Yi Hyun (Yoon Hyun Min) and the deer as Lee Ji. We’ve additionally seen Lee Ji making an attempt to strangle Yi Hyun, asking him to actual his revenge; but we additionally see the deer telling Yi Hyun to make amends for his sins. So might or not it’s Yi Hyun isn’t Lee Ji’s incarnation, however quite she’s “haunting” him someway, to rectify some previous mistake on Yi Hyun’s behalf? Or is there multiple magical deer frolicking round?
Prediction: Honestly, there are such a lot of contradicting items of data that it’s complicated (in a great way) and I can’t even start to make a prediction. But right here’s to hoping that the writers will have the ability to reply all these questions (and make precise sense), as an alternative of hurriedly wrapping up the story and leaving us with extra burning questions.
Might Geum (gasp)… go darkish?
This is a thought that can undoubtedly deliver shivers to all Geum (Seo Ji Hoon) lovers. After all, our Geum is the sweetest, kindest particular person round who enjoys snacking on clouds! No manner would he ever lose that charming child-like innocence of his, would he?
And but, that closing shot from this week’s episodes – the one the place he stumbles upon Yi Hyun and Ok Nam (Moon Chae Won) kissing – is so foreboding. The combination of confusion, betrayal, and heartbreak is written throughout his face, and you may’t assist however marvel if the darkness engulfing him is a touch of issues to come back. This thought is extra worrying provided that we all know one thing occurred between Bausae and Lee Ji within the fairy realm, the place Bausae allegedly betrayed Lee Ji.
Prediction: Given that Lee Ji might be a biased supply/narrator, it’s extra possible that Bausae “betrayed” Lee Ji out of a way of justice or necessity. That being mentioned, I’m guessing Geum would possibly lose his manner for a bit, however finish the sequence as his previous, candy, Geum-self. (I’m additionally not averse to Geum with a bit extra of an edge, simply sayin’).
When will Jeom Soon understand Kyung Sul is a creep?
With a lot of the story this week taking place away from the college and their houses, we barely see a lot of Jeom Soon (Kang Mina). We do see her working off to hang around with Kyung Sul, however their interactions are reduce quick when Jeom Soon discovers the magical trio on campus. Despite having lived many lives, it’s completely comprehensible that Jeom Soon, as a younger girl, can be enamored with this cute man who offers her consideration, particularly since she supposedly remained single in her first life. She’s only a girl searching for love, however sadly, Kyung Sul is simply not the fitting man for her.
Prediction: Kyung Sul ultimately finds out concerning the magic of all of it, movies them, and threatens to launch an exposé. Around the identical time, Jeom Dol may even lastly hatch, and being the loving brother, will put the worry of God in Kyung Sul for ever making an attempt to reap the benefits of his child sister. Or will Jeom Dol hatch as a child? In that case, oh effectively.
Also, Jeom Soon will lastly confess to being the author of the erotic novel, and subsequently turns into a well known author with many adoring followers.
Will Ok Nam ever take cost?
Ok Nam’s drunk scenes have been totally pleasant to look at this week. While Moon Chae Won herself is a fascinating actress, it does really feel as if Ok Nam thus far has been a considerably bland character. She largely goes together with no matter is going on, and is extra reactionary than instigator-y. But this week, we lastly get to see a few of her spunk, as she goes toe-to-toe with Dr. Lee (Jun Soo Jin), and even lands some actually good quips. This spark in her provides depth to her character, and is admittedly cute in addition!
Absolutely gorgeous gown (that’s not as revealing because it first appears)
Also, as romantic as “ready for her husband for 699 years” is, wouldn’t or not it’s much more romantic for Ok Nam to decide on whoever her coronary heart needs now, as an alternative of pining for reminiscences misplaced? Especially since nobody even remembers who the husband is?
Prediction: Ok Nam’s authentic winged gown is discovered, however she offers it to Fairy Oh, who by no means finds hers. In the finale, Ok Nam chooses to be reincarnated right into a human, the place she and her real love* discover one another in a unique lifetime and fall in love once more — this time with simply as many flowery prints, however decidedly much less vengeful fairies round.
*I’m actually hoping she finally ends up with Geum, as a result of the chemistry between these two is simply… wow! #GroupGeum
