“Moon within the Day” is settling into its stride, alternating between previous angst and current confusion. It’s doing a terrific job at peeling again the layers one scene at a time, however the bulk of the magic continues to be taking place up to now greater than the current. The opening episodes didn’t reply all questions, and this week offers a bit of extra perception however nonetheless retains us on our toes. Listed below are some mysteries that had been answered and an enormous query mark that is still up within the air!
Warning: spoilers for episodes 3-4 under.
1. ANSWERED: Who’s making an attempt to kill Jun Oh and Younger Hwa
Do Ha as Jun Oh (Kim Younger Dae) assumed that the one hazard round him and Younger Hwa (Pyo Ye Jin) was that which he meant to inflict on her. However after he and Younger Hwa are kidnapped and practically killed by a gang, he realizes that there’s another person who needs them lifeless. That particular person seems to be Seok Chul Hwan, performed by Jung Woong In, who actually at all times performs villains. Seok Chul Hwan, Jun Oh’s former company CEO, was additionally behind the accident which killed the true Jun Oh and allowed Do Ha to enter his physique.
However there’s extra at stake than a disgruntled, murderous company CEO as a result of Chul Hwan isn’t actually Chul Hwan! The true man was tormented by voices in his head ordering him to kill and ended up lifeless whereas making an attempt to flee them. Then, a spirit enters his physique. We’ve obtained one other vengeful ghost within the image! And he has a critical grudge towards Jun Oh and Younger Hwa.
2. UNANSWERED: Lord Website positioning’s hyperlink to Do Ha and Ri Ta
The ghost is proven as being Do Ha’s adoptive father Lord Website positioning (Lee Kyung Younger). It isn’t clear as to why Lord Website positioning hates Do Ha and Ri Ta a lot simply but. We all know that he noticed Ri Ta as a brand new, fairly maid, and he eyes her creepily. However it seems that he’s additionally been trapped in the identical cycle as Do Ha for 1,500 years. So how is it that the 2 ghosts haven’t seen one another? Have all of them been hovering round Ri Ta’s reincarnations all these years with out crossing paths? Do Ha doesn’t appear to have a clue that his murderous stepfather is possessing folks and making an attempt to kill him and Younger Hwa.
3. ANSWERED: Whether or not Younger Hwa is aware of about Jun Oh’s terminal sickness
Younger Hwa hasn’t been having an excellent time of it. First, she’s kidnapped by a gang on Chul Hwan’s (possessed by Lord Website positioning) orders. And since she’s no damsel in misery, she knocks down 4 guys earlier than shedding to the fifth. He’s about to kill her when Do Ha exhibits up livid and practically kills all of them. Younger Hwa’s unconscious and doesn’t hear him quietly promise her that she gained’t die by anybody’s arms—aside from his that’s. The factor is Do Ha appears so conflicted about even the considered hurting her. He may have taken her life proper there. He had each likelihood and will have blamed her dying on the gang members. However as a substitute he does this:
Afterwards, the police blame the gang members’ accidents on Younger Hwa, and he or she’s suspended from work for 3 months. Meaning goodbye to her dream of going to the Antarctic. She’s upset but in addition afraid, questioning why she will’t bear in mind hurting these males. However her fame is in tatters. And that’s when Do Ha instructs Han Min Oh (On Joo Wan) to swoop in to the rescue. Han Min Oh comes clear with Younger Hwa that his brother has solely a month to dwell and pleads together with her to be his bodyguard throughout that period as a result of it’s actually Jun Oh’s final want. Younger Hwa thinks again to all of the occasions Jun Oh acted like he would die with out her and mistakenly thinks that he’s fixated on her as his savior as a result of he doesn’t have a lot time left. That, plus a mushy coronary heart, makes her conform to being his bodyguard. However that’s solely the beginning of their troubles.
4. UNANSWERED: Why Younger Hwa is remembering her life as Ri Ta
Younger Hwa’s spate of unhealthy luck continues when Lord Website positioning/Seok Chul Hwan mindcontrols Goo Tae Joo (Jung Heon) into driving his automotive into Jun Oh. She leaps in entrance of him and takes the hit. And Do Ha simply freezes. All he can take into consideration is that he promised that she wouldn’t die by anybody else’s arms. And she or he’s bleeding out in entrance of him.
Earlier than with the gangs and now, that isn’t the face of somebody who needs Younger Hwa to die. He’s by no means as soon as been merciless to her, and even now, when he has each motive to hate her, he can’t see her die and for causes greater than his personal salvation. This present is unimaginable. And there’s one other layer to this. When Younger Hwa falls unconscious, she doesn’t fall asleep. She enters her life as Ri Ta!
And that is once we see the reality play out.
5. ANSWERED: When Do Ha realized of Ri Ta’s identification
From the beginning! He knew from day one! The present makes use of flashbacks to nice impact right here. The identical scene when seen in isolation finally ends up that means one thing altogether totally different when put in context. Do Ha hears when Han Ri Ta creeps into his room, making ready to take his life, however his first intuition isn’t to even kill the murderer however to wound her, and even then, to ensure it’s not life-threatening. He solely has to take one have a look at the mark on Ri Ta’s sword to comprehend that she’s the daughter of the overall he simply vanquished in battle. And that additionally signifies that he hanged the incorrect one who’d pretended to be her.
However in a transfer that’s wildly refreshing and bewildering for Ri Ta, he does nothing. He actually even tells her that he is aware of who she is. When she chooses to work for him as a maid within the hopes of making an attempt to kill him once more, he agrees. And he doesn’t use his place to blackmail, threaten, or assault her! He even helps her in her archery classes, displaying her how to kill him. That and the quiet, stoic manner he lives (Kim Younger Dae being all stoic is simply perfection) confuses Ri Ta as a result of he acts like a person with a dying want. She isn’t incorrect.
6. ANSWERED: Why Do Ha fought towards the dominion of Gaya
Do Ha is lauded in court docket by the king for annihilating the Gayan rebels. However Do Ha refuses all reward and as a substitute directs it towards his adopted father Lord Website positioning, who very clearly despises his adopted son. Do Ha clearly lacks political ambition and sends all items and glory Lord Website positioning’s manner, however that’s not ok. Lord Website positioning doesn’t like him, doesn’t belief him, and sends him on conflict marketing campaign after marketing campaign within the hopes that Do Ha will die in battle and that he’ll get a ton of wealth, energy, and pity from the king because of this.
The rationale for this hatred isn’t clear as is the explanation why Lord Website positioning would undertake a boy he dislikes a lot. Nevertheless it’s resulted in Do Ha having been emotionally uncared for his total life. He even has to taste-test all his father’s meals in case it’s poisoned. Naturally, Lord Website positioning doesn’t care whether it is and if Do Ha dies because of this. Ri Ta is perturbed upon witnessing how Do Ha is handled and even angrier when she sees Do Ha constructing a secret monument to the fallen Gayan folks. She accuses him of making an attempt to earn pity and forgiveness, however he sadly factors out that the lifeless can’t forgive. He was following orders, however that didn’t imply he favored what he did. And he is aware of there’s no atonement for it. He simply needs nothing greater than for his struggling to finish. Ri Ta realizes that Do Ha needs to die and hopes she’ll do it. She grows livid and refuses to kill him, saying that she would solely be doing what he needs and that isn’t vengeance. Fairly, she orders him to dwell. And the second he needs to dwell greater than anything on the earth is the second she’ll kill him. After all, that is when Younger Hwa wakes!
In the meantime, Do Ha’s been standing over her mattress, realizing that he’ll in all probability haven’t any higher likelihood than this to kill her whereas she’s already weak and comatose. He grips her neck and hesitates and retains hesitating. Younger Hwa opens her eyes, and he or she calls him “my lord,” simply as Ri Ta did. And Do Ha is gone. He’s utterly misplaced. He actually runs however can’t keep away. He waits outdoors her dwelling. He watches her longingly and wonders who she is and why she would name him the best way Ri Ta did. It actually shakes him to his core.
Can’t blame him. She’s beautiful!
He is aware of he doesn’t wish to kill her and doesn’t know what to do about it, so he overdoses on meds simply to cease himself from hurting. She finds him, struggling to breathe, and thinks that he tried to finish his life due to his most cancers. She orders him to dwell, the identical manner Ri Ta as soon as did. However can that truly occur this time round?
What a rollercoaster! This present is solely going to tug a pretend out and provides us a contented ending or rip our hearts out! Subsequent week guarantees extra of the previous and extra confusion on why Younger Hwa appears to be remembering her life 19 incarnations in the past. We even have Jun Oh’s annoying ex Jung Yi Seul (Jung Shin Hye), who doesn’t even need him again, making an attempt to get pleasant with him for good PR. However Do Ha and Younger Hwa stay the center and soul of this present, and right here’s hoping the main target continues to remain firmly on them and the probably very ill-fated relationship that’s blooming within the current.
