Let Dai 10
December 29, 2008
Okay, so all that stuff I said about Eunhyung feeling better last time? Yeah. It’s one of those things where you can see one little push finally sending someone over the edge. It was very, very sad and kind of unexpected. I mean, this series isn’t exactly upbeat or cheery or anything… but Eunhyung went to a place where she shouldn’t have. I’m very sorry about it.
Actually, her entire day is pretty rotten. I can see how that series of events preyed on her the way it did. I wish she’d stuck around for the extra day, though. It made Naru Hagi very, very sad. He got one of my favorite panels of the series so far, where he folds his hands and apologizes when he finds out for sure.
The chapter with Eunhyung and Dai at the very beginning of the book is nice, as is the scene with Dai and Jaehee up on the rooftop. Both show a definite… mellowing out of Dai’s personality. Dai is making a conscious effort to get along with Eunhyung for Jaehee’s sake, and he’s also trying to stay out of trouble for Jaehee’s sake, too. To think of Dai doing these things even a few volumes ago was kind of a stretch, and the change has been gradual, but it’s nice, and I like seeing it come.
The scene up on the rooftop between Dai and Jaehee was very nice. There’s not much else I can say about it other than that. As always, it’s terribly romantic without having much contact between the boys.
