The mythical element is inextricably linked to Hong-bin"s anger issues that stem from him shattered family relations. It grounds the mysticism into a real and relatable subject matter. The broken relationship between Hong-bin and his father extends to his younger brother as well. Gaining a son, Chang, brings an element of family back into Hong-bin"s life that will be the pathway to reconnecting with the family he distanced himself from. It will also bring him closer to Se-dong who already intrigues him as much as she intrigues me.
Se-dong is a methodical woman who is a natural caregiver. She doesn"t blindly give to the point of harming herself, though, which makes her a rarity amongst K-drama heroines.
