Three Big Revelations About Yeo Joon
Park Ji Hoon's character Yeo Joon was not as happy as he was in the premiere episode. He showed a different side of him to the viewers in the second episode. In this chapter, the character also introduced his family members to the viewers. At first, the viewers got to see him as a judgemental person. After a short interaction with Soo Hyun and So Bin, he started assuming everything about them. While he defined Soo Hyun as a person with an inferiority complex, he described So Bin as a cunning person.
Secondly, the character showed some symptoms of PTSD (post-traumatic stress syndrome). He did not feel comfortable around dominating people, and he often tried to stay away from arguments and fights. But he was not able to avoid such situations at times, and they affected him badly. The fighting scene in episode 2 featured such a situation in which Yeo Joon asked his friend Han Jung Ho to stop beating Soo Hyun.
Thirdly, the chapter hinted at the complicated relationship between Yeo Joon and his parents. Both his parents are not happy with him since he was not able to rise to their expectations. His mother, Cha Jung Joo (portrayed by So Hee Jung), wants him to follow his elder brother Yeo Joon Wan (played by Na In Woo). According to his father, Yeo Myung Hoon (portrayed by Kim Hyung Mook), he is good for nothing.
A Big Revelation About Nam Soo Hyun
Meanwhile, In Hyuk's character, Soo Hyun, is the only breadwinner in the family. He wants his brother Nam Gu Hyun to graduate from a good university and secure a good job. But Gu Hyun plans to join the police force, and Soo Hyun is against it. His father was in the police force, and he lost him when he was a teenager.
The followers of this KBS campus drama will know more about the family backgrounds of Soo Hyun and Yeo Joon in the upcoming episodes. The next episode of At A Distance Spring Is Green will air on Monday, June 21, at 9 pm KST.
