The full version of Beautiful is out. I never thought Kim Eun Sook could do heart wrenching stuff but here she is splintering my poor heart piece by piece with each soulful episode of Guardian: The Lonely and Great God. Episode 5 was heartbreaking, especially in the last few minutes where Kim Shin realises he had made the decision to let Eun Tak pull out the sword. He dies, she lives on without having a single memory of him. GAH. Gong Yoo is understatedly solid here and I’m glad he turned down all the writer’s previous offers to star in this drama. He’s just so good as Kim Shin.
