The Favourite Things of Eun Soo and Choi Young

by shengvang

After having gone searching for Prince Deokheung, Choi Young and Eun Soo comes across a place they had once crossed in one of the earlier episode. Eun Soo then stops to reminisce. Choi Young, taking note of it, decides to ask her what she likes about her stay there. She beats around the bush, and starts talking about how she likes the clothes, the food, the weather, etc. However, in her mind, she looks upon Choi Young and describes the color of his clothes (which she actually says out loud but gradually falls silent), his height, his hands, his voice... Perhaps it disappointed Choi Young a little, for, judging on his facial expressions, I'm sure he had wanted her answer to be him. He asks her once again, and again, and she hesitates to say that it was him, whom she actually liked. She turns the question on him asking, "What about you? What do you like?" Choi Young looks at Eun Soo, and gently places his hand on her shoulder. Without a word, he turns away and leaves.

The words spoken in their mind that could not be said to one another, the look of sadness that Eun Soo wore at the thought of Choi Young (perhaps remembering that in just a matter of time, she will no longer be able to see him), the look of eagerness on his face, and the placing of his hand on her shoulder says more than enough. Had she known better, his answer was her; Had he known better, her answer was him.
