'Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol' Episode 16: Is Jun dead? He doesn't return and leaves Rara, his friends in despair
'Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol' finale episode 16 promo is out and it hints at Jun's death. Will he not return to Eunpo and leave Rara behind in a state of loss?
After everything that Rara (Go Ara) has lost in 'Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol', is it really okay for her to lose Jun (Lee Jae-wook) as well? Jun, at the end of episode 15 did not tell Rara that he is going away to get treated for leukemia. In fact, he did patch up with her and lied to her again. He said that he is going to the US to continue his studies and that he would be busy. In reality, though, he is headed out of Korea for treatment. His father and mother now do not care about his time spent in Eunpo or how he had run away from his family.
They only want to help him recover, however, is it too late? We had seen Jun's father worry about how this was acute leukemia and that treatment if given earlier would have been of a lot of help. Now that the time for that has passed, they are left only with guilt and worry. So before leaving for the US, when Jun had said that he would like to spend two days in La La Land, his mother had readily agreed, as if unsure if this would be his last time. In keeping with this, the promo of the finale episode 16 of 'Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol', hints further at a sad ending for Jun.
In the promo, we see Rara get ready to welcome Jun again during Christmas. She believes that he will come back for a break to spend time with family, but is probably surprised when he doesn't come. The neighborhood in Eunpo arranges for a banquet and Christmas concert and Rara too has made some preparations. She believes that all this while, she had only received things from Jun and has not been able to give him anything in return. So this time, she wants to propose to him and it looks like she also has bought a couple of rings for the two of them. However, she may never be able to see Jun wear it because we hear different people tell Rara how Jun will now never return. She is in tears, and she sobs, we wonder if the show is headed for a sad ending.
Will it kill Jun, and teach Rara that life is uncertain and not everyone that you meet and fall in love with may remain on your side? So far, the show had gathered love and attention for its heartwarming portrayal of inter-human relationships, especially of friendships. Be it the friendship between Jun and Man Bok grandpa or that between Rara and Ha Young's mother, all of it is based on trust and care. This is also true for Rara's piano teacher and that between her and her father's secretary.
So when no evil plot had been depicted in the show solely to give a twist, it made audiences happy. So will Jun's death be the one sad occurrence in the show to keep the reality intact? We will have to wait and watch.
'Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol' will air on KBS2 on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Seoul, South Korea, and can be streamed on Netflix in the US.
