Part I of Binnie's books here.
While I thought the usage of literary titles in Episode 3 poetic, I found its execution slightly forced in Episode 10. Even so, I appreciate Writer Kim trying to connect the OTP in this manner,
thus completing the circle: What he thought of her, and what she thought of him. Ra Im has certainly been thinking about him for more than 5 minutes. Oh, if only Joo Won knew.
The books Ra Im read to find out what's in his mind (and heart):
Alice In Wonderland -Oh, I'm sure you know what's this is about.
Like A Fairy Tale -Novel, An average couple that goes through three marriages and two divorces to be together. A modern take on a fairytale, Korea's version of Tian Mi Mi (there was a kmovie remake Yoon Eun Hye was supposed to film with Park Yong Ha-RIP).
The Night That Eun-ha Shot Through The Galaxy -Poetry, On that brilliant moment when two galaxies become one.
A Trivial Melancholy -Novel, Explores the "bad habits" of human beings. Must be about *cough* Ra Im *cough*
A Bad Boy Is Standing There -Poetry.
She walked at the pace of memory -Novel.
Alice In The Wonderland Syndrome (AIWS)
Turns out its not a metaphor, it's a real neurological disease which affects the human's perception. That's so Joo Won to think of love as a disease: first it was hormone disease, then heart, and now brain?
Good luck in finding out what your real problem is, buddy.
On the collection of books- At first I was kind of puzzled why it's Alice (but relieved it wasn't TLM), but I guess the writer explained it in the Damo scene, when Joo Won narrates he must be suffering from AIWS to be thinking every moment with Ra Im is a fairy tale. Yeah, I think I'm suffering from AIWS too, there's no reason why I should be lovin' Kim Ttol Chu so much.
