[Drama Review] 'Great Temptation' - episodes 25 & 26

Another big mystery has been solved in episodes 25 and 26 of MBC's 'Great Temptation', which is now slowly approaching its last leg. 

Actually, episode 25 was mostly just a recap episode of all of the key, romantic moments between Kwon Si Hyun (played by Woo Do Hwan) and Eun Tae Hee (played by Red Velvet's Joy), so here are a few screen caps to summarize this episode in one jiffy: 

They went swimming in a pool,

Then Tae Hee got mad drunk even though she claimed her drinking limit was infinity, 

and then the insane amount of blooming cherry blossom petals got in the way of filming. Perfect summary of the series so far!

Now episode 26 is where thing got pretty interesting.

It turns out, a distraction from her love life in the form of, well, not having a boyfriend, was what Tae Hee needed to get back her memories about the night of her hit-and-run accident. While visiting Myung Jung Hospital, Tae Hee finally pieces together why the white car Choi Soo Ji (played by Moon Ga Young) drove to campus the other day looked so familiar. The real assailant behind Tae Hee's hit-and-run car accident turned out to be Myung Mi Ri, Soo Ji's mother. 

Mom can't you tell I need five more minutes in my super comfy bed of grass. 

When Tae Hee fully remembers that Mi Ri abandoned her on the streets that night instead of coming back for her as promised, she lets Mi Ri have the full wrath of her anger. 



Mi Ri, on the other hand, can't bring herself to admit her mistakes and apologize to Tae Hee. She tries to argue that both she and Tae Hee went through what they had to that night, because they were trying to save the same person - Si Hyun's mother. Ultimately, Mi Ri tries to play it off that it all comes down to Tae Hee's mother's fault for forcing Si Hyun's mother to leave the safety of the hospital. 

Selfishly, Mi Ri she continues to hide the fact that it was her who egged Si Hyun's mother on into leaving the hospital in the first place. It's not going to be pretty when this last little truth gets revealed, and both Si Hyun and his father Kwon Suk Woo find out. Now, what's still a bit of a mystery is how Suk Woo truly felt about Si Hyun's mother. What their relationship was really like, outside of the views of it that we've had through Si Hyun's eyes. This could be a decisive factor in Si Hyun's fate with the Kwon family - will Si Hyun ultimately cut ties with the entire family at the end of this story, or will they find a means to stick by one another, like a real "family" for once?

Now, our poor, poor Soo Ji doesn't know anything about any of this matter yet. And all she walks into in episode 26 is Tae Hee leaving her mother's office, and her mother breaking down in a fit. Naturally, Soo Ji has her own right to be angry. 

What she did NOT deserve at all here was for freaking Si Hyun to emerge and treat Soo Ji like crap. I mean, as far as friendship goes, I think we can all officially agree that Si Hyun sucks at it. It was really outright just mean and difficult to watch Tae Hee and Si Hyun leave Soo Ji completely in the dark like that, and all Soo Ji knows is that her mother is suffering very badly because of Tae Hee. 

Kwon Si Hyun = hoes before bros ALL DAY ERR DAY

And episode 26 came to an end with... this really really dramatic cliffhanger. Is Soo Ji really going to try to hit those two with her car? Is she?! Because... that's not safe. That's not very safe at all. 




Even though the cliffhanger scared me there for a bit, I'm going to remain optimistic. I've always liked Soo Ji as a character, and I don't believe she's that kind of person. We all just have to wait until the next two episodes to see what happens. 

And so they died... the end T^T.
