The Sun is Also a Star: Chapter 100 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
As Natasha walks towards Dae Hyun's store, she notices a hungry-looking young woman playing a violin. Her sign reads that she needs money to buy her violin back from a loan shark. Natasha puts a dollar in the hat right before the loan shark comes out to tell the girl that her time is up. She hands over the money and the hat, asks how much money she has left, and hugs her violin before she gives it back. The man agrees to not sell the violin if she returns the next day.
It seems uncharacteristic of Natasha to read the woman’s sign, which suggests that she’s doing so because she knows it’s what Daniel would do. Once again, this shows that, despite their disparate worldviews, Natasha and Daniel are learning from one another.
