'Memories of the Alhambra' episodes 7, 8 spoilers: Hee-joo falls in love too easily, follows Jin Woo to Korea
In the previous episode we saw Jin Woo leave Granada, even as Hee-joo ran behind his train silently begging for him to stay back, or, at least, hoping for a proper goodbye
Netflix and tvN drama ‘Memories of the Alhambra’ is saying goodbye to Granada soon, with Jin Woo (Hyun Bin) packing for Korea in the previous episode. From what we know about the upcoming episodes 7 and 8, his love interest Hee-joo (Park Shin-hye) is going to follow suit soon.
In the previous episode, we saw Jin Woo leave Granada, even as Hee-joo ran behind his train silently begging for him to stay back, or at least hoping for a proper goodbye. As Jung Min-joo (Lee Re) pointed out previously, her older sister has fallen too deep in love way too fast, and is bringing her entire family to Korea.
She is hoping to start her tourist lounging business in the country, and from the promo for the upcoming episodes, it seems like she is going to name it “Emma,” as in Emma from the game. Meanwhile Jin Woo, who is still facing the repercussions of the death of his friend, Hyung Seok (Park Hoon), hasn't forgotten about Hee-joo by any means. He wants to know her whereabouts and will meet with her again, at her brand-new business.
Even in the last couple of episodes we saw him relying heavily on Hee-joo, even seeking her help to hide out from his second ex-wife. They have saved each other's lives by now, something most K-drama fans can agree on is the foundation of a great relationship. Moreover, we even saw him requesting her to stay back when she was leaving the hospital.
However, the game and the hallucinations will form major parts of Jin Woo's storyline. We watched him whisper a sorry to Professor Cha after the visions he had while still at the hospital. It has affected him so much that after locking himself in the shower room out of the hallucination-induced fear, he agreed to be drugged to keep the visions away. In the upcoming episodes, he may also turn to alcohol to suppress his mental problems.
Regardless, he will be playing the AR game in Korea, even as it gets launched in all the major cities around the world. The glitches of the game are slowly becoming clearer to the audience as well. How will the game and the rules adapt when the game goes global? Will everyone face the same consequences Jee Woo did, resulting in some harrowing experiences, including real deaths and consequential hallucinations?
You will have to watch episodes 7 and 8 of ‘Memories of the Alhambra’ on December 23 and 24, via Netflix or tvN to find out.
