Little Women Episode 3 Review
The episode was undoubtedly another thrilling glimpse into the Oh sisters’ chaotic early life. They don’t fall so slowly into very deep chasms that will soon cause them very big problems.
Hyo-rin’s parents are ready to make big plans for their daughter, which will cause In-hye huge problems. But the teenager has really given up on being able to live a better life with her family who are seriously pushing her into these troubled waters.
Her dark paintings with gruesome scenes really bring out the burden she silently faces and it’s sad to see such a wonderful talent shattered like this.
On the other hand, I’m excited to see the kind of game-changer In-ju is destined to become, and I hope In-kyung stops pushing people away with his reckless behavior.
The blue orchid becomes clearer in In-ju and In-kyung’s vision, which could play another major role in uncovering the secrets they hide. Although I’m also excited about the partnership that Do-il and In-ju will show.
Lastly, Jae-sang is truly a master manipulator and his character is another thing to expect in this show.
All in all, this episode finally begins the real thrill of the series and I’m looking forward to the turn that’s coming soon.
