Man. They jump in the ocean after a tough run. And I am screaming in my head. Why? Because of the mermaid secret ofcourse.
But no. That doesn’t happen. He sees her in mermaid form but he doesn’t remmember.
As the episode starts in 1586 we see the mermaid revealing it to the town head, a story about their love which she erased from his memory. And the same incident seems to be happening in present times.
But this can be done only in special circumstances. It happens again, today, with Joon Jae.
She leaves behind the bracelt and a tear (which turns to pearl) and a bunch of manipulated memory. My real question arises that what about the other people that remember her and account for it?
He goes back to Seoul and so does our Arial with pearl glasses and a sea shell purse. The latter is a sight! As thing progress and Joon Jae realise to be missing chunks of his memory, he tucks away the braclet instead of selling it to get things lined up in his mind. And to add his ‘I Love You’ dreams on top is just the cherry on the crazy cake of his life.
There is 3 months gap in the story with uncertainly depicts that it took 3 months for Arial to swin to Seoul from Spain and a 3 month gap from con jobs in the life of Joon Jae.
Through the whole episode the two keep crossing paths with same people around the same time, minutely missing one another. Joon Jae also crosses path with a paerson who is a point of contact for his mother.
As it goes, I will let you this part. A girl is trying to seduce/impress Joon Jae and takes the food to him(don’t get sentimental for the girl is taking money for it or so it seems as if now even though she is really interested in him), which is cooked by his mother, who works at the girl’s house.
By the end of thr episode the two finally meet and I am guessing the whole drama from 1st episode may fire up again only this time audience knows that Arial id making a concious effort.
List of more things Arial is so clueless about:
Concept of Aquarium (she went there for her swim).
