Recap

Who I Was Before – Gugu, Shin, Rean

Before getting involved with the Booze Man and meeting Fushi, he was just a kid excited about going to work during the day, occasionally seeing his crush, Rean, and hanging out with his older brother, Shin. However, all of this came to an end after Shin stole his and Gugu’s saved up money, and in an effort to save Rean from a log hurdling her way, Gugu’s face was crushed.

A New Life – Gugu, Booze Man

However, thanks to Booze Man, Pioran’s special friend, Gugu gets a reconstructed face, a mask, and not only a new job but a place to live. One which may not compare to the dream he had with his brother but, it’s cozy, it’s safe, the food is consistent, and while Booze Man is weird, he is nice.

But after three months, Gugu gets settled in until Fushi shows up. With his arrival comes someone Gugu’s age physically, but with discovering that Fushi is mentally a child? He decides to be a better big brother to him than Shin was.

Well, at least until Rean comes around and reveals she has a crush on Fushi. With that, Gugu gets a little upset with Fushi, but this does drive Gugu to work out so, it isn’t the worst thing.

Commentary/ Review

Gugu Is Going To Die, Isn’t He?

I’m already building up a wall because Gugu’s life is too sad. His brother betrayed him, he lost the youthfulness of his face due to saving his crush, and when he gets to face her after the incident, she falls for his new best friend. All that tells me is that Gugu is going to die and probably in a way that’ll leave us all in shambles.
