The guy goes from being an alcoholic, depressed webtoon author to an unfeeling, ruthless serial murderer, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I was thoroughly impressed by his performance. I nearly got goose prickles on my skin watching his speech to Chul at the end, his leering face looming horribly. Props to Kim Eui Sung for his versatility and convincing acting. I may check out his other works now thanks to this drama.
Yeon Joo is lovesick...quite literally.
Oh Sung Moo finally realizes what he has to do to give the webtoon the happy ending that everyone wants. Alas, his plans to lend the 'faceless killer' his own face to permanently end him backfires when the webtoon character ends up stealing his identity. The killer is not just a shapeless existence anymore; thanks to Oh Sung Moo's decision to give Chul a happy ending, the killer is not only more alive but his threat is also more palpable than before. Oh, the irony.
I still don't quite understand what kind of superpowers this killer possesses. I mean, the guy can fly, teleport, use telepathy to communicate with his murder targets, and more that I probably missed. I'll let the killer's weird set of superpowers slide because aside from being totally random, they're not doing any big harm to the overall story. And I suppose it lends him an air of mystery...
Chul forgets entirely about Yeon Joo, or so we're led to believe.
My frustration toward Yeon Joon bubbled up again when she started acting like a hormonal 14-year-old tween rather than the grown ass 30-year-old woman that she is. I understand that she's heartbroken after parting ways with Chul, but it was really pathetic the way she acted, especially when she cut out scenes of her kissing Chul in the webtoon and put them up on her wall. Even her own mother told her to start acting her age. You know what they say: Mom knows best!
Yeon Joo was inevitably pulled back into the webtoon as we all knew she would, but the reason for her jump back into the 2D world is unclear. I get the feeling that it could be because her father is now involved in the story? I tried to link her back to Chul but with no great success. At the moment, Yeon Joo seems pretty irrelevant to the story. Even the whole 'love line' between Chul and Yeon Joo didn't go anywhere, which leads me to question the writer's decision to include it in the story.
"It's not you, it's me."
Additionally, from what we know and have seen so far, it isn't solely Chul's thoughts of Yeon Joo which drags her into the webtoon. The killer's need to discover his true identity is what contributed most to the revival of the webtoon, and Yeon Joo helped only by drawing the scene necessary to save Chul from drowning. And now, even after Chul severed his relationship with Yeon Joo, she keeps being dragged back into the webtoon. As Chul keeps saying in the drama, there is "no context" concrete enough for Yeon Joo's pulls into the webtoon. I hope that the writers will give Yeon Joo a believable enough purpose soon enough, because at the moment she is just...there.
