'I Love Italy' Super Junior's Kim Kibum Gives Up On His Life! / Credit: tvN
On the 8th episode of tvN drama "I Love Italy" that was aired on the 19th of June featured Geum Eun Dong's (Super Junior's Kim Kibum) dilemma regarding his future. Geum Eun Dong, who has lived his life as Hwang Min Soo for 8 episodes, confessed his love to Lee Tae Ri (Park Ye Jin) but was torn in deciding whether to go back to the 14 year old Geum Eun Dong's life or to live as the 25 year old Hwang Min Soo forever.
In the episode, Hwang Min Soo sacrifices himself and decides to give up on his chance to go back to his life as Geum Eun Dong in order to save Lee Tae Ri from the evil plot of the vice-chairman of Lee Tae Ri's museum.
While hesitating in front of the sundial, Hwang Min Soo tells Lee Tae Ri, "I wondered what would happen if the sundial was destroyed completely and I had to live life just as it is now. If the sundial is fixed, I might have to leave" and revealed his sadness.
Lee Tae Ri angrily responds, "Leave? What do you mean?" Hwang Min Soo then tells her, "I want to stay right next to you Lee Tae Ri. The only thing I could make that happen is to destroy the sundial."
Lee Tae Ri, who had been waiting patiently for the sundial to be fixed says, "If the sundial is destroyed, my life will end and my museum will die as well." Hwang Min Soo then says, "You might be in danger even after the sundial gets fixed. I want to stay with you" and expressed his love for her.
Lee Tae Ri still doesn't know that Hwang Min Soo will be turned back into the 14 year old Geum Eung Dong as soon as the sundial gets fixed. Lee Tae Ri tells Hwang Min Soo, "You're saying you want to destroy the sundial to protect me? You expect me to believe you? I trusted you" and begins to suspect Hwang Min Soo.
