Yunhi Episode 6 Written Update & Review

It is time to discuss the latest episode of “Yunhi”.

This episode primiarily about highlighting the difference of opinion between a girl who’s raised outside the country and a boy who’s raised within the family value system. Who should work, who shouldn’t; whether supporing the family members is right or wrong, so on and so forth. During that conversation, there were many things that I agree with, but many I’m strongly against. I mean, women are not supposed to work unless there is nobody in their family for financial support. PERIOD. Kim’s stance is incorrect from Islamic point of view. I hope that the drama would show Kim undergo a transformation and understand what Dawood was talking about.

We see a difference of opinion between Kim and Dawood regarding several things about desi people and society. Kim, who was raised outside of the country, believes that women should also work and the men don’t have the responsibility of supporting the other, especially financially. Dawood, on the other hand, believes that a man’s job is to look after the family no matter what.

While watching the episode, I found myself agreeing with some of Kim’s points. On surface, it does seem right that everyone should bear their own expense, and that’s when Islamic teachings come into play. If it seems right, doesn’t mean it’s right. Islam wants the women to stay home.

“Wa Qarna Fee Buyutikunna…”

I understand where Dawood is coming from. In many cultures, including my own, it is considered the responsibility of all family members to support each other, and women are often seen as the primary caretakers of the household. What bothered me about this episode, however, was Kim’s lack of understanding of Dawood’s perspective. She seemed dismissive of his beliefs and unwilling to even consider that he might have a valid point. From an Islamic point of view, women do have the right to work, but they are also encouraged to prioritize their families and household duties. Kim’s stance seemed to be in conflict with Islamic values, and I hope that the drama will show her undergo a transformation and come to understand Dawood’s perspective.

Overall, while the episode did a good job of highlighting the difference of opinion between Kim and Dawood, I found myself frustrated with Kim’s lack of understanding and willingness to listen to Dawood’s point of view. As the drama progresses, I hope that the characters will continue to grow and evolve, and that the show will continue to explore complex and nuanced issues related to gender, culture, and family dynamics.

Let’s move on.

In the 6th episode of the drama, one of my predictions come true. My gut feeling was right about Zulfi and Iqbal. We see Zulfi coming to visit Naveed, but unfortunately, he’s not home. My first thought was that Zulfi’s visit wasn’t just about Naveed, and it turns out I was right. Zulfi seems to have a thing for Iqbal, and the way he looks at Iqbal suggests he has more than just a casual interest in her. Iqbal, on the other hand, seems to be drawn to Zulfi as well, and it will be interesting to see how their relationship develops in future episodes.

What really surprised me in this episode, however, was the sudden friendship between Zulfi and Kim. They are shown to be incredibly friendly with each other, and Zulfi even tells Kim animated stories about his childhood. This felt a little bit sudden and unbelievable to me. It’s unclear why they have suddenly become so close, and it feels like a plot device to move the story along rather than something that is rooted in the characters themselves.

One of the strengths of this drama has been its portrayal of complex and multi-dimensional characters. Naveed, Iqbal, and Kim all have their own unique personalities and struggles, and their interactions with each other feel authentic and real. However, the sudden friendship between Zulfi and Kim feels forced and artificial, which detracts from the overall realism of the show.

That being said, the drama continues to be compelling and engaging. The tension between the characters is building, and it’s clear that there are more secrets and surprises to come. I’m looking forward to seeing how the relationships between the characters develop, and I’m especially curious to see what will happen with Zulfi and Iqbal.

While the sudden friendship between Zulfi and Kim felt a bit contrived, the drama continues to be well-written and well-acted. The characters are complex and interesting, and their struggles and conflicts feel authentic and relatable. I’m excited to see where the story will go in the upcoming episodes, and I would definitely recommend this drama to anyone who enjoys a good character-driven story.
