All week I had niggling doubts about whether I should have boarded the SamMi ship. Not because I don’t 100% adore this coupling, but because I wasn’t ready to let my gorgeous, sizzling MiGook sweethearts go. Until now. Bringing you spoilers about an upcoming musical development in Dream High. I don’t think this definitively answers the question about who is “K” at all, but it does shed some light on how the angst and romantic developments might unfold.
Written previews for episode 8 have already revealed the fact that Baek Hee will be getting an opportunity to debut. I posited that Jin Gook will be debuting with her since he performed the showcase with her. I was only partially right – the debut will be for a group named K, and will comprise Baek Hee, Jin Gook, Jason, Ria, and two others. Their first single will apparently be a smash hit, titled “With K”.
I don’t believe that the K in 2018 necessarily has to be one of the six in this group, and still could be Sam Dong (or even Hye Mi). I do, however, believe that this development really reinforces the unsubstantiated spoiler that the second half of the drama focuses on the SamMi couple (and therefore the GookHee couple as well).
Once Jin Gook is out of Team Misfits, and even goes so far as to debut, I don’t see how he can continue to have Hye Mi rely on him, open up to him, and trust him. Without those things, there is no way to develop MiGook any further, because these two are not head over heels in love that they can surmount this seeming defection on the part of Jin Gook.
I am still open to ANY ending, despite my being happily a SamMi shipper, as long as the story remains true to its underdog-achieves-success story. I just hate to see my angtsy white knight Jin Gook fall into Baek Hee’s clutches. Run, run as fast as you can, Gook!
