WDTFS Thoughts – Why Dawoon Wasn’t a Useless Character

So What Does The Fox Say is over. This was in my drafts for so long so it doesn’t hurt publishing this now– and I think it’s kind of timely as well.

This feature may contain some spoilers. So if you are not updated with the latest chapters of WDTFS, you’ve been warned.
Who is Dawoon?

Kim Dawoon is the grey-haired girl that made her debut in WDTFS  Chapter 60. She is introduced in the chapter when she returned to Korea and meets with Sungji. They were able to catch up on things together since she had to leave the country for study.


What We Know So Far

Out of all the characters that appeared in this webcomic series, it was only Dawoon that was short-lived and never recurred. Here are a few things that we know about her:


She is a highschool friend of Sungji 
Both Sungji and Dawoon knew each other since high school so technically Dawoon knows more about her than Sumin. The downside here is that the story implies that they no longer met anymore after high school graduation so the years of absence made them drift apart somehow.
Dawoon has feelings for Sungji for a long time

In a flashback, Dawoon have sort of confessed to Sungji but our favorite blonde never really gave her a proper answer. Even when Dawoon has returned from France and meets up with her again, she ended up with the same answer.

Dawoon had a girlfriend when she was in France named Camille. But even if they were together, the story implies that she keeps mentioning Sungji every now and then.

She wanted Sungji to be hers

Well, we can’t really blame her. She liked Sungji so it’s really normal for someone to pursue the person they liked whether there are risks involved in the beginning or end. It was obvious she wanted Sungji and she would do anything just to convince her to say yes.

A Threat To Team Blonde

When the series was still ongoing, one of the common comments I read is that Dawoon was only considered a filler character without any significance whatsoever. Regardless of that, it doesn’t hide the fact that she was a threat to the relationship of Team Blonde. In the previous chapters, Sumin and Sungji broke up. When Dawoon came into the picture, she was there to comfort Sungji and seems to portray as a better partner for her. She was willing to do anything to make her happy.

If you’re interested, you can read my reviews on these particular moments here and here.

She Wasn’t Useless

Okay, I admit that I admired Dawoon in appearance when I first saw her in the webtoon. She was a character that I really couldn’t take my eyes off and there is some mystery about her character as well. Although she got friendzoned in the end and never returned, she wasn’t really a useless character. Why? She was a wake-up call for Sumin that Sungji might be taken away from her.

Although I was a little disappointed with the lack of efforts made by Sumin to get her back, it made her realize what she have done and the possible threats that she would encounter especially when it comes to her relationship with Sungji.

She wasn’t useless because she did play an important part of Sungji’s life– and that’s being her highschool friend. She was one of the people that shaped the blonde girl’s childhood somehow. She was there for her back then when no one else did. That alone is something.

A Side-Story of Her Would Be Nice

While a lot of us are excited for the new “Seju side-story” series by Team Gaji (to be released in November), the possible thought of a Dawoon side-story is nice too. Like really– she was a short lived character leaving us a few questions in the end.

It would really be nice if Team Gaji would have some time in getting us to know about Dawoon because she is a mysterious, interesting, and probably the most friendzoned character ever in all the Lezhin GL webtoons combined. I am not  keeping my hopes up but having a few or a couple of chapters dedicated to her would be really interesting.

Although the chances of seeing her again is uncertain, I am quite happy that Dawoon made its way to the webtoon. It gave us a different view on things especially in the topics of love, being loved, and being friendzoned. Cheers to our noble grey knight.

What Does The Fox Say Double Review Treat! – Chapter 65 and Chapter 66

Finally after a couple of weeks of silence, I am back fueled with a lot of reviews to share. To make up with the lack of updates here in the blog, I decided to have a segment called The Triple Treat Three Series Review. Today I will be reviewing three yuri series in just one go starting with What Does The Fox Say.

What Does The Fox Say Chapter 65- A Cup of Americano and A Necktie

So in this chapter, we are first welcomed with a conversation with Sungji and Nami (God! How I missed this girl so much!). Our favorite blonde complimented her new hair only to find out it was actually hair extensions. So they had a heart to heart talk together which is mostly about Sumin and how Sungji is feeling. Nami admits that meeting up with her and Sumin would be really awkward now due to the break-up. Regardless of what is happening, Nami assures Sungji that if she needs someone to talk to, she can always call her. 
We are then taken to Sumin’s room as she is packing up for her business trip to Japan. As she went through her stuff, she noticed a dark blue aesthetic designed necktie in the closet realizing that it was actually from Sungji. Due to the sudden find, she decided to rest in her bed with the necktie covering her eyes.
Fast forward to her flight, Sumin remains glued to her cellphone hoping that a certain someone would check up on her and leave a message. Her workmate Miss Bong noticed this and asked if she was okay. This was the first time that Sumin will be far away from Sungji and wonders if she will be okay as she will be away from Korea. 
The plane finally took off and it seems that Sungji was able to see this as they went on a date together with Dawoon. In a coffee shop, Sungji ordered Americano coffee with 7 shots on impulse. This kind of startled Dawoon because Sungji was treating her. 
In the last few panels of the chapter, Sumin and Miss Bong arrived in Japan safely and in their hotel room. Sumin had absolutely no interest in sightseeing because she rather be somewhere else but back in Korea to hopefully fix things.

First off, this chapter is kind of bland for me– nothing critical and fancy about it. The only thing that seems interesting here is Sungji’s conversation with Nami. In that part alone, it’s obvious that Sungji is still unsure if finally letting go of Sumin is the best for her or going out with Dawoon would be the best for her to move on. I also liked how Nami is still there for them despite her busy schedule and everything between Team Blonde is still a huge mess. I really love her hair in this chapter and I really wish she would really let her hairstyle stay that way.
Let’s go to Sumin. Despite her busyness in packing up for her official business trip to Japan, she still had the time to marvel and appreciate the necktie that Sungji bought for her. Also, she kept holding and looking at her cellphone to check if she will at least get one message from Sungji before the flight takes off. 
Then to the Dawoon x Sungji date and coffee shop scene. Despite finally going out together, Dawoon still sensed that Sungji is still very distracted (well, you can help it because the break-up is still very fresh). The order of coffee was on impulse because if I remember correctly, this was the usual coffee Sumin orders.
Final Verdict

There’s nothing much to say about this chapter. Kind of good since the previous ones were emotionally triggering. This is a transition chapter to what’s about to unfold in the next one. 
What would that be you ask? We can only find out.
For now, have a Coffee Americano (it’s also one of my usual orders in coffee shops too). 😀
What Does The Fox Say Chapter 66 – “You Love Her, but Only On Your Own”

. << I was honestly this close to not making a review for this chapter… But I guess I don’t have a choice.
So Dawoon and Sungji went to the movies together. Though they were on a date, Sungji is still having that blank face of hers as she remembers her sweet moments with Sumin in the same venue. Dawoon went a bit too demanding when she asked Sungji to hold her hand.
After the movies, they went to a cafe. Sungji was sitting alone in the table while Dawoon had a sudden phone call. Once she got back, she immediately told Sungji the good news that she got hired by the restaurant she applied for. Somehow, the blonde girl seemed pre-occupied to notice and make an effort to congratulate her. Dawoon dropped a bomb and asked if Sungji was still thinking about her ex. Their conversation then shifted about the movie they’ve watched.
The next few panels were more Sungji and Dawoon scenes which are happier and less awkward unlike the previous ones. In the certain panels of this chapter (and also in the previous one), Sumin seems to look like she is present while the two are having fun (this will be explained a bit later during the Review section). 
Fast forward, Dawoon was with Sungji in her car. Our grey-haired knight enthusiastically told her that she will start work tomorrow. Finally focused, Sungji finally said her sincere congratulations. Dawoon smiled and she was happy to see Sungji smile ever since they started going out. Dawoon leaned closer to kiss Sungji. Aware that Sungji is still not ready to go intimate with her, she assured her to “give it a try first and think about it later”. As both of their lips touched, Sungji only imagines herself and Sumin kissing each other.
Meanwhile in Japan, Miss Bong and Sumin were busy going around the city. Our Team Leader stopped at a game machine which has a King Fox as the grand prize. With great determination, Sumin made a promise to herself that she will come back to that place in order to get it.
Now back to Sungji and Dawoon. Once again, Dawoon assures Sungji that she will “still wait a bit longer” until she is okay enough to start going out together. Sungji however, finally replied with a blunt sorry to indicate that this does not really work for her. Obviously hurt and realized that her high school friend was right, Dawoon told her that she might not be able to see each other again. Sungji told her that they will stay as friends as if nothing happened. Dawoon however admits that she can’t stay as friends because she sees Sungji as something more than that. The Grey knight leaves her and said her last goodbye with a broken heart.
Meanwhile in Hello Studio, Seju was answering a call which is related to the job applicants for the company. She then dropped the call and said to herself that “There’s nothing that’s going to change”. Upon leaving the place, she did not realize that someone was actually watching her earlier.

Oh wow, how do I even begin this review? Do I need to flip a table first?
This is technically a Dawoon x Sungji chapter with a VERY hurtful ending. Sungji imagining Sumin being there while she and Dawoon are dating is an obvious indication that she can’t move on yet and she obviously loves the Team Leader so much. 
In my previous reviews, I admired Dawoon since her first appearance and I appreciated to how she was so devoted and caring for Sungji. This chapter however seemed to show us a side of her that is in the borderline of being desperate. It’s understandable that she loves Sungji, but she should at least not force her to do things her way. Her kissing Sungji in her car was one part of the chapter that I didn’t like for some reason. Yes, I’m “Team Grey” but I just didn’t like to how Dawoon is making everything so fast that it’s just making Sungji uncomfortable.
I can’t really tell if Seju is trying to get away from all this or still hanging on. I hope it’s the former– but I seriously had enough of seeing her getting stuck in predicaments caused by both her family and love problems. I hope she can finally make her own independent decisions without anybody standing her way. 
I am starting to see a little of hope on Sumin. In this chapter, she makes an effort to get the King Fox as a gift for Sungji. Let’s hope that her efforts are really going to pay off in the end.
Then we go to Dawoon. I’m sorry but regardless if Dawoon was a bit rushing on her feelings towards Sungji, it’s just hurtful to see that someone you like never really liked or loved you the same way. If we put it in the context of Les Miserables, Sungji is like Marius, Sumin is Cosette, and Dawoon is Eponine. Though it never really showed, it was obvious that Dawoon was hurt in the end. 
We may not know when we’ll be able to see her again, but I hope the rejection doesn’t trigger anything worse. I’m hopeful that they will be friends again in due time.
To end this review, I’ll leave this here in honor of brave Grey Knight, Kim Dawoon. RIP Team Grey (2016-2016).
So there you have it, folks! Two chapters in one pod. Stay updated on the site and the Facebook page for I will be reviewing Chapter 67 next! 🙂

What Does The Fox Say Chapter 64 Review – “Before I Let You Go, I Want to Say I Love You”

This is probably the most emotional and triggering chapter Team Gaji have ever concocted. Why you do this?! Like seriously. Spoilers ahead, guys. I don’t even know anymore.

The chapter begins with Sungji together with Dawoon inside her car. Our dear grey haired knight asked the blonde with concern if she was alright and not stressed out. Sungji told her a summary about what happened to her and Sumin in the office and about their break-up.

She was about to say something to Dawoon but she end up being silent and didn’t know what to utter. Dawoon gave our blonde a pat on the head and assured her that it’s alright. She suggested however that they should go out together for a week.

In the next panels, the reader is taken to a flashback of Sumin and Sungji taking selfies and the blonde appreciating the Team Leader’s aesthetics. Sumin, being older and experienced with relationships, finds it every awkward that women like Sungji enjoys taking a lot of pictures on their phone. The most notable statement by Sungji in this flashback is this: “At first, I was happy just by looking at you. But now I’m not sure how much I’ve come to like you even more.” She then ended her sentence with a kiss. This was also the moment when Sumin was already getting used to getting her picture taken or being in a selfie.

Back to the present panel, Sungji was going through cellphone pictures that have Sumin in them. After selecting one photo and was about to touch on ‘delete’, she then received a text message from Dawoon who was using a mobile text/chat app called chocotalk. 

We are then taken to Sumin who was in her bed while Seju was in the room with her. Sumin has had enough of being angry with Seju and rather stays silent. Seju once again told her that she loves her still. However, Sumin finally dropped the bomb that they couldn’t start over anymore because they were cowards who couldn’t even end things properly.


I thought I was going to be immune with the Team Gaji emo effect— I was wrong after all. I wasn’t even suppose to write about this review because I cried and a depressive episode came crawling in again after reading. However, I promised myself that I will still write about this regardless if I’m emotionally stable or not.

The flashback just hit hard and it was something to remind the readers that Sungji really admired Sumin for who she is. Just imagine Kim liking Chris from Miss Saigon*– that kind of thing. The part also made us realize that Sumin did appreciate it in the end regardless if it was a bit awkward on her part.

The part when Sumin was talking to Seju in the room together didn’t really give much impact for me. The last few panels however, did. Just take a look at Seju’s face when Sumin said that they can no longer start over. It was like her yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows all went down the drain. Damn.

Though hurt, I guess it was the best that Sumin should do to stop the continuing chaos. It’s not for certain what’s going to be ahead for these two. We could only wait for the next chapter.

I also realized that this was the first time since Dawoon’s debut in the webtoon that I didn’t really worship or appreciated her a lot. I was more focused on Sungji and Sumin in this chapter to be honest and hoping that at least they’ll be together again. Sumin called off Seju in the last panels (though it was so painful to read that) so she might make the efforts of winning Sungji back.

I may have said this already in my previous reviews, but Sumin really has to pick up the pace because it wont be long before Dawoon would probably take over the blonde’s heart (it can happen).

For the record, I’m not siding on Dawoon on this chapter. I still like her though. How I wish the next chapter won’t be another slow down because if you remove the triggering stuff for a bit, you would realize this chapter is kind of boring a bit. Nevertheless, it was good chapter. Not too grand, not too bad. It did trigger me so I give Team Gaji point for that.

*- Sorry if I used this as an example since it’s the only close enough characters that I can think of. Aside from that, I also watched the 25th Anniversary performance of Miss Saigon in the cinemas last week so yeah, blame it on that.

Oh yeah, I never left songs in my reviews yet so I’ll just leave this here. This also inspired my title for this review. Quite fits the current chapter. Till the next review~!

What Does The Fox Say Chapter 63 Review – Now What? What Now? I Don’t Know!

Time for my most favorite part to write about in this simple site of mine. So here’s my What Does The Fox Say Chapter 63 review! Since I am a good person, you’ve been warned: S P O I L E R S!

The chapter begins with Sungji reminiscing her moments with Sumin in the office as she prepares herself for the worse between them. We still see a cowardly Sumin trying to avoid her as much as she can. (Seriously?)
Fast forward, Seju meets her brother in the hospital and finally snapped telling him that she doesn’t need to be caged by her family’s demands because they think it’s for the best. She then left after giving him a piece of her mind that she’s been keeping for quite a while. 
Back in Hello Studio, Sungji wanted to go inside Sumin’s office to “thank her for everything”. Unfortunately (and as expected), the door is locked. She said her thanks at the door for she is aware that Sumin was inside listening. As much as both girls want to talk and sort this out face to face, the fear is just pushing them away. The most notable part in when Sungji asked this question: “Can love exist where you expect nothing in return?”. So deep. 
It’s been an emotional ride for this webtoon lately and I have to be very honest here: I’m starting to get to used to these shifts that Team Gaji is laying on the tables for us. 
While people are getting so triggered on this chapter because they can so relate to the words that Sungji told Sumin in the office scene, I wasn’t really affected by it. Very odd because I had a very hard time making a review on the previous chapters (especially Chapter 62). The question that Sungji asked to Sumin however was quite deep. 
I mentioned in my previous review that Seju deserves to be independent and not be caged by anyone any longer: not Sumin, her family, or just about anybody. Seju slayed this chapter with that angry and fierce look and I’m just so happy that one of the things that I wanted for Seju just happened in this chapter. 
Yes, I’m fully aware of the persistent rumors that Seju’s brother likes her romantically but I decided to brush this possibility off. The story is already too much to catch up and just adding this theory would just make it even confusing. I doubt if that’s true, anyway.
Expectations for Chapter 64

I haven’t done this kind of thing in my previous reviews so here are my possible expectations for Chapter 64:
  • Sumin will chase after Sungji. My God, she has to! As the chapter keeps moving forward, the more I’m losing my patience. Time is running out Sumin! It won’t be long until your beloved blonde might be out of your grasp for good.
  • Sungji meets up with Dawoon. I’ll just end my statement there. I have a lot of scenarios that would possibly happen so to be on the safe side (and not making this review very very long), I will just say that for now. Sungji meets up with Dawoon since they seemed to have agreed of meeting with each other after the previous chapter’s phone conversation. 
Final Say

I have nothing much to say about this chapter. I think this proves that I’m finally immune to the “Team Gaji Emo Effect” now. As always, can’t wait for the next chapter. I need more Dawoon in my life.
Speaking of Dawoon, I will making another separate article about her and why I liked her in WDTFS. Will post it very soon.
I would also like to thank Susan Dinh for discussing this chapter with me. Without her help, this review wouldn’t be this detailed. Thanks Susan!
