[HanCinema"s Drama Review] "Let"s Eat - Season 2" Episode 17

To further emphasize the way "Let"s Eat - Season 2" is moving into conclusion mode, there"s actually more character relationship montages than food porn sequences this episode. What makes this particularly weird, though, is the two of the chaarcter relationship montages appear to be ironic. It"s like writer Lim Soo-mi is explicitly telling us- no, as a matter of fact, these two particular storylines never actually went anywhere, and the only reason these characters are waxing on romantically on the subject is because they"re just kind of lonely.

In the context of Dae-yeong leaving Sejong City after having only been around for a few months, this is appropriate and also ties in quite well to his character from the first season of "Let"s Eat". Dae-yeong makes friends very easily even when he doesn"t want to. What Dae-yeong lacks and doesn"t even seem to particularly need is long-term attachments or long-term partners. Given that the man"s first love is food, which he can literally find anywhere, this makes sense.

But where does this leave us as viewers? There"s something very unsettling about the fact that the Dae-yeong / Soo-ji montage is the only that seems to involve genuine character growth and mutual appreciation- what"s more, we even get the entire date at the end of the episode. Which I suppose technically isn"t really a date. Although really, who would put up with that kind of corny stuff except for a man who genuinely enjoys spending time with the woman of his dreams?

This is an even thornier question than it sounds, because Sang-woo is the absolute picture of persistence here- yet he knows full well this can"t repair the basic emptiness of his relationship with Soo-ji. Even more perplexing, the big speech Soo-ji ends up giving Sang-woo is completely correct- in a very anti-romantic way. Soo-ji presents a very compelling argument for why obsessing on romantic partners is honestly just kind of dumb, and how enjoying life means more than just wanting love for the sake of love.

I"m having trouble reconciling this with the obvious conclusion arc for "Let"s Eat - Season 2", because it certainly seems like this drama has to end with Dae-yeong and Soo-ji ending up together. But won"t this contradict what Soo-ji said about romance not really mattering? I honest to goodness have absolutely no idea- and this feeling is precisely why the "Let"s Eat" series is so consistently excellent. It"s just so delightfully ambiguous and unpredictable- they could rehash this franchise for a third season and it would still be among the freshest, most innovative storytelling on modern television.

Review by William Schwartz

"Let"s Eat - Season 2" is directed by Park Joon-hwa, Choi Gyoo-sik, written by Lim Soo-mi and features Yoon Doo-joon, Seo Hyeon-jin, Kwon Yul, Kim Ji-yeong, Kim Hee-won, Hwang Seok-jeong.

[HanCinema"s Drama Review] "Let"s Eat - Season 2" Episode 16

Last episode was such a huge flash in the dramatic department that "Let"s Eat - Season 2" was more-or-less fully destined to let itself down this episode, if only because of the disappointing reality of characters having to face consequences for their actions. In light of everything that"s happened there"s not really much to do except sulk in front of the police and hope that eventually everything manages to take a turn for the better. Everyone else is just trying to stretch the plot out. With food porn, when possible.

The food porn and the humor, always the staples of "Let"s Eat - Season 2", as usual manage not to disappoint. It will never stop being amusing just watching Soo-ji and Dae-yeong argue about food. Even when they inevitably reach a compromise, it"s the fact that they"re able to take the situation of dinner so mutually seriously that makes it so much fun. The plot twist of the opener is especially funny, because it really does keep begging the question- why does Soo-ji have so much interest in Dae-yeong"s imaginary girlfriend?

Maybe it"s because life with Sang-woo just isn"t that much fun. Up until actually getting the relationship Soo-ji has always seemed like the kind of person more interested in the abstract concept of a relationship than actually spending time getting involved in it. The gossip she overhears is flattering- to a point. Other times the gossip is just plain infuriating, not to mention absurd. What kind of crazy person could not consider Soo-ji attractive just on her own personal quirky merits?

...Hey, wait a minute, didn"t somebody else say that? That"s right- Dae-yeong made a specific point of complimenting Soo-ji in exactly this way a few episodes back. It was one of the drama"s more touching moments because who doesn"t like being told that they"re attractive? The fact that Dae-yeong said it in a non-romantic context only emphasizes the fact that it must be true, because he had no expectation of a reward.

Beyond all that "Let"s Eat - Season 2" is mostly just cruising to resolution at this point. Dae-yeong gets an opportunity to achieve his dreams from the first episode- and what exactly were those dreams exactly? It"s weird thinking back to the beginning of "Let"s Eat - Season 2" and realizing how the characters were actually kind of shallow, and the whole premise just riding on the coattails of the first season"Let"s Eat". The production as a whole really has worked past that though, creating a meta-commentary that"s gone along quite well with actual storyline.

[HanCinema"s Drama Review] "Let"s Eat - Season 2" Episode 15

The tonal shift this episode is to serious drama- we"re not looking at anything super-weepy or anything, but the immediate reactions of the characters is fairly appropriate. While Jeom-i has never been a terribly important character, she"s always been friendly and likable in her own way. And this was just in dealing the other residents of the building. There"s something humbling about realizing that Jeom-i actually hasan actualfamily- and that of course, every other character has an actual family too. That they don"t talk to as much as they should.

And let"s be entirely honest. You probably have that same problem. "Let"s Eat - Season 2" has always been a drama focused very heavily on relatability and the theme of mortality is used quite well here. It"s something that"s very easy to forget about for people like this, who have been living away from home for so long. The cast gives strong reactions all around, although there"s no doubt that Lee Joo-seung pulls off the best performance in this department- for the simple reason that his character has the most reason to feel guilty.

Never mind the sad stuff for now, since all the staples are still here. Like the all-important food porn. In both cases the sequences are just dressing on top of important plot points- in the first place, the question is raised as to how long Soo-ji and Sang-woo are going to keep their relationship a secret, when there doesn"t actually seem to be any reason to keep it a secret. And in the second place, why does Soo-ji keep meeting up with Da-yeong as if he were her boyfriend? And why does she unnerved by him pointing out that technically speaking the drama"s conflict has already been resolved?

Plenty of standard excellent comedic points remain as well. I figured that was the direction the computer scene was going to go in, but the execution alone gives that whole joke an excellent slovenly hook. There"s times I almost feel ashamed at laughing at the drama this episode, because really, Jeom-i is barely straddling the line between life and death. With a situation that serious, is it really appropriate to laugh at anything?

Well of course it is! Life can"t just stay on hold because a tragedy appears to be in the making. "Let"s Eat - Season" also deals quite a bit with character relationships, and the importance of trying to deal with problems directly instead of pushing off the inevitable indefinitely. It"s the reason why the Soo-ji / Sang-woo loveline seems doomed- and the parallel with an actual literal lifeline only makes this thrust all the stronger.
