@vivi_1485 upon hearing PD-nim’s voice. Immediacy sat upright and began to pat her palms quietly on her desk and begain a slow quiet chant.
“Row… mance. row… mance. row… mance. row… mance” gradually building a crescendo “ro-mance, romance Romance, ROMANCE, ROMANCE!” but then suddenly stopped when she realised that yet again no one was listening to join in her mini protest and she was the only one in the rally.
PD-nim looked on with a puzzled look on his face. Just how long was that bout of amnisia? he wondered.
Unfazed by the lack of participation in her rallying chant, she picked up the document holder for the Kami project like a lawyer in a court room drama, held it up and showed it to to others who were busy with their work and still not taking any notice.
“I’ve had a sneaky peek at what happens to Ha-Neul and Haruto, and I don’t like it one bit! JUSTICE FOR HA-NEUL and HARUTO!” as she continues to wave the folder in the air “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, there should be only verdict here today and that is GUILTY! PD-nim is guilty of being heartless for not giving them time together.”
Upon which the penny dropped as to what was happening.
"Most definitely they have to spend time together before they part. In fact, it’s essential that they do or the tearjerker doesn’t work at all giving the airport location with it’s Departure and Arrivals gates feature it’s impact on the couples emotion, more so than say that of a train station location.
Compare that with when they head over together as the happily married couple, the Departure gate has zero significance on the couple and is nothing more that a transition from A to B.
As for when they land in Korea, do the family greet them at the airport, I’d say no, there may be more opportunities to write more story in regards to the return, like not telling the family that she had returned (surprise number 1)
as it could make the return more fractious in a private setting when surprise number 2 is sprung upon them.
Depending on how we develop the story, if they accept Haruto with open arms or reject him, I feel a Kimchi slap level of response coming!
