Fate and free will may seem like opposing concepts, but both have a part to play in this week’s episodes of “Hotel Del Luna.” Even when given a choice, Goo Chan Sung (Yeo Jin Goo) fights to stay by Jang Man Wol’s (IU) side — bringing her closer and closer to her own fate. As more characters, both new and old, come into play, tensions are heightened as our story builds towards its climax. That means more surprises, touching moments, romance, and, of course, comic relief. This week’s episodes brought us all these emotions and more, so here are 7 times that “Hotel Del Luna” gave us emotional whiplash.
After a little chat with the deity Ma Go, Chan Sung has fully embraced his role as Man Wol’s ultimate nag, acting as her conscience and pestering her so she’ll become a better person.
Chan Sung even goes so far as to toss a precious medicine that would take away his ability to see ghosts into a nearby pond, just to show Man Wol his devotion… only to have the tender moment humorously shattered by the well-intentioned water spirit he had just rehabilitated into said pond. Nam Da Reum’s cameo as a sulky deity just trying to do a good deed brought us from tense emotions to cracking up in mere seconds.
