Episode 8 of Light on Me in my mind:
*Spoilers I think??? Also swearing cause this show makes me feel 100 different emotions
•Namgoong is the BEST- his chart is the cutest! Guess his goal is to get a girlfriend 🤷♀️🤷♀️
•Taekyung didn’t tell anyone about him getting an umbrella from Daon (like what’s the big deal if he borrowed an umbrella???)
•Also this scene??? Like, I could tell Daon is conflicted about something and most likely the fact that he’s emotionally unavailable to date well…anyone
•Daon runs in the rain like the romance lead in a KDrama that he is. Honestly there’s always a rain scene somewhere in these dramas
•Cliche romantic comedy cold because Daon’s dumb ass ran into the rain
•Shinwoo’s awkwardness is awkward- his STARE!!! How is Taekyung NOT seeing this?!?!
•Namgoong’s strut 😂😂 he’s so extra and I love it, the most unproblematic character in this show tbh
•There’s this weird love square (???) going on between Daon, Shinwoo, Taekyung and Sohee Meanwhile, Namgoong is just vibing
•Taekyung accused Shinwoo feeling bad for something because he was being nice lol
•THIS BUS SCENE!!! My heart ❤️❤️
•Ngl he’s really good-looking. This scene makes him look really handsome. How does a man like this exist????
•This walking scene was just so calm and really nice. No bickering, no proclamations of not liking each other, no awkwardness. Just Taekyung and Shinwoo having a chill moment
•The fact that I notice poor Daon constantly gets called on to help out or do favors, I have yet to see anyone return the favor for him. Dude can’t catch a break
•The entire conversation about Shinwoo treating Taekyung well was a great moment, just amazing build up and the two of them getting closer is making hope for too much
•SHINWOO is fucking indirectly confessing wtf?!?! This was so sudden and I am in DISBELIEF that he actually said something after 8 episodes of SECOND LEAD PINING.
•Tbh I swooned at this moment. His expression, his eyes and tone really made my heart skip a beat. And still Woo Taekyung doesn’t notice ANYTHING!! Ugh! Why?!?
•Then he fucks up immediately after by saying “it’s not that kind of like” 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️😩😩😩
•This is why Team Daon has been winning
•Also I cannot find Lee Sohee likable at all. Like, okay…Daon is nice to people and does favors and is a people pleaser (I guess), but there was no need to tell Taekyung that so cruelly. Girl, your jealousy is showing and it’s obvious to EVERYONE that you don’t like him hanging around your 3-year crush.
•In BLs they usually make the girls bitchy or toxic or both. Can we please have ONE female character that is actually nice??
•Am I the only one that low-key wanted Daon to be evil?? Okay okay. Hear me out! I mean, he’s the Student Council President that is smart, good-looking and has a friendly smile on his face. But, I felt his kindness was fake (I was thinking: no way is there a person THIS nice) and it was all ONE GIANT manipulation tactic to get people to like him and be his followers (???). This guy could basically control the whole school while laughing his ass off in secret at how everyone got duped by his “nice guy” act. Then, Taekyung would find out he’s been pretending to be nice and it would be freaking WIlD if Daon was actually manipulating people by acting kind
•By this episode I threw away this theory cause maybe Daon is just a “yes guy” and is actually a nice person who doesn’t really know what he wants or has never really acted on his desires. I’m all hoping he was a villain lol
•THIS SCENE. I. AM. NOT. OKAY!!! Shinwoo taking action??? Grabbing Taekyung’s neck?? Disinfecting his wound so gently and being soft??? Just the total opposite of how he acted in Episode 1.
•Daon stepping in just increased the tension and still seems be insistent of forming that love triangle with Shinwoo for Taekyung’s heart
•Team Shinwoo has been fed well during this episode! His demeanor, attitude and tone becoming softer towards Taekyung. Being nicer to him with gentle, sweet actions. PLEASE!!! Something happen already, this is so frustrating
•Noh Shinwoo continues to surprise me with this action of grabbing Taekyung and saying “I’ll do it”. The way he directly looks at Daon so intensely while delivering this line was just mind blowing because Shinwoo has been stepping up in this episode.
•I honestly don’t know anymore how this show is gonna go. I’m Team Shinwoo all the way, but this slowpoke is taking too damn long! I’m totally calling it: Shinwoo won’t directly confess to Taekyung till like another 4 episodes
•Theory: Shinwoo has liked Taekyung far longer than we might have assumed
•Theory 2: Daon will reject Taekyung’s confession cause he’s a “yes guy” that doesn’t know how to express his desires, emotionally unavailable to date, and is a people pleaser plus it feels as if he’s gonna stick to the “status quo” by letting Sohee continue to like him and not get into a relationship with another boy
•Theory 3: Shinwoo discovered he was gay/attracted to boys in middle school and the assholes from his former school knew about it, basically threatening to out him which causes him to hesitate on saying anything about his feelings because of those jerks
•Theory 4: Daon is Taekyung’s first crush, but not his first love
Thanks for reading.
