Netflix Persona Recap
Cast – IU, Bae Doo-Na
IU is not enjoying eating a plum while she watches a tennis match played by two Maria Sharapova impressionists (her Dad and BDN). Something comes to her mind and she calls someone, then a man arrives at the tennis court. IU asks him to seduce Bae Doo-Na who is her English teacher and offers him something “delicious” if he succeeds. The “White Male” seems to be doing the things right with BDN while IU plays tennis with her father while grunting like Sharapova. Later, IU asks her father not to marry BDN while hanging on his back to which he doesn’t reply. BDN suspects something and asks IU for a match with her while betting on that the loser will leave the guy (IU’s Dad). IU then gets angry at the man for not seducing BDN on top it telling her that he is IU’s boyfriend.
Finally, the match begins and BDN totally dominates IU from start. IU keeps cursing as she starts to lose more and points. Then we get to see some close of shots of the ladies and their bodies. With drops of sweat dripping off making things extra-sensual. IU hurts her knee and blood starts dripping but she continues to play. She then falls from exhaustion as the blood, sweat, and tears fall from her body. IU tells BDN that she can’t accept this to which BDN replies that you already agreed to it. They then have a sensual “bodily contact” when BDN gives IU a ball. IU gets up and the match continues.
Now things started normally with IU not wanting her dad to marry BDN because she doesn’t like her. But things got complicated for me as the story goes on. And with that exchange of ball scene, I’m not sure what to make of the whole story. Do the ladies have feelings for each other or they dislike each other or is it one-sided romance, I’m not sure about anything. So, share your thoughts and conspiracy theories about what’s going on here.
P.S.- Why the heck was IU wearing a full-sleeves sweater in hot weather while playing sports, dripping in sweat and fighting with exhaustion?? arggghhhhhhhh
Cast – IU, Park Hae-Soo (Prison Playbook)
IU meets with PHS and apologizes for not contacting him and just disappearing. He asks where she was, she tells him she was on a trip and presents him a small box. She then tells him to open it later when she leaves and further tells him that he will not forget this day. They continue to talk and PHS starts to imagine/see some weird stuff like his neck separating from his body. Then his severed neck has a conversation with his ex-fiancee in which she talks about IU not being a human. They then go for a walk and PHS starts remembering their first meeting and how their relationship started. They then move to a new cafe and continues to talk about weird stuff while his imagine severed neck is back on his imagined head.
She messages someone and excuses himself while in flashback we see PHS sees IU kissing another guy earlier. His ex-fiancee tells him (in his imagination) that he has brought this on himself. He then sees his ex-fiancee (in reality) with another man in the same cafe where he is sitting. IU and PHS move to a bar now and get in an argument about their relationship. IU tells him that they are in a non-committed relationship and she can do whatever with whoever. PHS tells IU that he loves her, IU asks him if he loves her then he should give his heart to her or something and her eyes totally changes at this time. He literally takes it Out and gives it to her she replies she will spice it properly. Before she leaves she says something to him, PHS then open the box he received earlier. While in tears he sees himself (the one he was imagining earlier) alone on a bed. He gives a little smile and closes the box.
These stories are making me feel stupid. From my perspective, the messages I got were that don’t stop people that are trying to leave you. Another one is that throw/give away the things (in this story his heart) that are making you stop from being free. Anyways what are Your though guys let me know in comments.
