Next Time On… My Liberation Notes season 1, episode 15 & 16
My Liberation Notes has continued to excel throughout its run, with a couple of particularly strong episodes this week ahead of next week’s finale. What surprises will My Liberation Notes season 1, episodes 15 and 16 provide? Well, we’ll have to wait and see. But until then, here’s where we’re up to, courtesy of my latest recaps:
Episode 13: Written down, it occurs to me that none of this sounds as clever and poignant as it actually is in motion, with a ton of meaningful formal tricks helping to get across the relevant themes and ideas. The eventual reveal reworks the context of previous scenes and conversations, retrospectively giving them a new power. It’s a crying shame that this weekend k-drama isn’t as popular as Tomorrow or Our Blues, since – in my humble opinion – it’s operating on a much more sophisticated artistic level than both. Tomorrow’s episode is sure to be a belter.
Episode 14: This fourteenth episode is in large part about dealing with that loss and learning how to move on from it. There’s no “right” way. The kids all try and move on following Hye-suk’s funeral, throwing themselves into work or relationships or their own thoughts. Something like an urn full of ashes becomes a symbolic reminder of the pain, and the logistics of what to do with it become paramount. Frayed emotions send sparks flying like live wires.
