Blue Birthday Episode 1: Recap
The beginning of Blue Birthday Episode 1 was certainly very intriguing. The pilot episode started with Ha Rin’s narration. It is a flashback scene from 10 years back where we see a Ha Rin as a school student. She is running frivolously across campus to confess her feelings for a friend she has known for 10 years. She has texted him about having something to say. Turns out the friend was no other than Ji Seo Jun. He has also replied to her message by saying that he has a surprise for her in the photography club room.
When Ha Rin enters the room, she sees that is it decorated for her 18th birthday celebrations. Ha Rin is very excited to tell Seo Jun about her feelings. She calls out his name and looks for him behind a curtain. Ha Rin is absolutely shaken to find Seo Jun lying unconscious on the floor in a pool of his own blood. It seems as though Seo Jun has tried to take his own life by slitting his wrist.
The episode then shifts back to the present where Ha Rin is a 28-year old animal rescuer on a mission. Her colleagues think she is very cool for jumping in front of a running vehicle to save a dog. However, they warn her to not be this reckless next time. Meanwhile, it turns out that someone has sent her a birthday cake.
Ha Rin at School
Ha Rin and her colleagues arrive at her old high school for a rescue mission. Here, they remind her of her school days. This compels Ha Rin to take a walk down memory lane. The show again shifts to a flashback scene near the canteen with Ha Rin and Seo Jun’s bickering. It seems as though the two of them are just playing with each other as they fight over a camera and talk casually about who likes who.
The benches in the school’s playground remind Ha Rin of a time she was having a conversation with a friend about confessing to Seo Jun. She was convinced that it was a terrible idea given how long they have known each other. Ha Rin finally enters the school building and finds the dog she has been called to rescue. However, the dog enters the photography room bringing back painful memories from Ha Rin’s past. However, she soon snaps out of it and rescues the dog.
Seo Jun’s Pictures
While walking back home, Ha Rins tops at a nearby photoshop and is surprised to find Seo Jun’s camera by the display window. She gets the old films printed but is only able to retrieve 9 pictures. The owner of the photoshop seems to be a mysterious man who happens to know a lot about Ha Rin and Seo Jun.
Later in the evening, Ha Rin is celebrating her birthday with a cake and drink with her friends. However, when they ask her about work, she tells them about going back to school for one mission. Everyone falls silent as they know what this means. When her friends begin questioning why Seo Jun tried to kill himself, Ha Rin said it was because of her. She then gets up to leave the restaurant.
Ha Rin’s long walk home is about nothing but a recollection of regrets about everything she could have done to save Seo Jun. Later when she goes home and checks his pictures, she sees they are all hers. Out of sadness and anger, Ha Rin burns them all. Later, Ha Rin finds a letter from Seo Jun along with all the pictures. He has confessed his feelings for her here. Ha Rin completely breaks down with the rush of memories and emotions that flood her mind.
As Ha Rin grieves for Seo Jun, she wishes to see him again. As soon as she closes her eyes, Ha Rin travels back in time to 2011 where she is still in school and Seo Jun is still alive. The episode ends here as the caption reads – burn the photo and travel back in time.
