With several episodes still to go, My Liberation Notes remains one of the stronger weekly k-dramas airing on Netflix right now. With the recent departure of Mr. Gu back to Seoul and the implications that has for Mi-jeong, My Liberation Notes season 1, episodes 13 and 14 are going to be heading in an interesting direction. Thanks to the strength of the storytelling and character writing thus far, fans will surely be along for the ride. Here’s where we’re up to courtesy of my latest recaps:
Episode 11: In their focus on Mr. Gu and the idea of our past catching up to us, the last few episodes of My Liberation Notes have felt like a big cloud looming over everyone. If that was the case, then this latest episode is that cloud beginning to move away; the first rays of light breaking through the smog. Shared struggles begin to bring people together, and those people begin to discover the thing or the person they find true comfort in. They’re realizing that they don’t have to shoulder their problems alone.
Episode 12: In many shows, this would seem like poor tonal balance, but here it just feels right; there’s a sophistication to the script, pacing, and development that can’t be mentioned enough. Stuff like Je-ho’s displeasure at Chang-hee driving around in Gu’s car is meaty thematic subtext; the battle between personal pride and in-the-moment pleasure. Can’t one enjoy something that they technically haven’t earned? Or is the toil the entire point?
