Because if you don’t, you’ll be missing out on one of the loveliest and heavenly K-drama OTPs EVER, in AGES! For once, we have an OTP which is entirely functional and normal. An OTP which defies every single cliche and stereotype we know of in K-drama land. An OTP who is just ideal PERFECTION together. With unbelievably sizzling and heart palpitating chemistry, akin to fiery sparks of fire incapable of being doused off by water. The way they interact makes other K-drama OTPs look stupid and ridiculously immature. The level of comfort and natural ease they have with each other, it’s almost next to none in K-drama. Who says love cannot work without bickering, conflict and angst? Who says drama OTPs can’t be all but cuteness and genuine affection? If there were rules, Boong Do and Hee Jin broke all of them.
I’ve raved about how awesomesauce Ji Hyun Woo is in his role of scholar Kim Boong Do earlier. But it seems like I cannot stop, he’s nailing scholar Boong Do’s idealistic bf/hubby traits so fucking good that I cannot fucking stop thinking about how fucking amazing he is in here *forgive me for the expletives, just trying to make a point you get me*. But in the latest ep, it’s Yoo In Na‘s Hee Jin who made me squeeee like a loony. Her performance isn’t mindblowingly WOW or anything near, but the cuteness and adorableness that she’s injecting into the ingenue character is totally loads of win. So winning and unassumingly affecting that she gets to you and makes you break into smiles. So lovely that she makes you want to squish and pinch her and keep her in your pocket (usually it’s the main guy I’d want to keep in my pocket, but here I’m totally craving for a Hee Jin in my pocket, she’ll make me squee and die of cuteness). She’s cute without being OTT, spunky without being annoying and totally bringing it on with her daebak straightforwardness. Who says the guy has to say it first? Who says the girl can’t do the head-grabbing kiss first? They’re equals together (not literally but you get me), nobody is above the other, and respect and honesty come first. What more can you want from a couple?
2 daebak main characters, imagine the buckets of awesome?
Have an awesome, a brilliantly made MV (spoilers from Ep 1-8):
And oh, did I mention that I adore Han Dong Min to bits too? XDDDDDD He’s such a self-assured narcissist. But I love him all the same, for being so harmlessly fun and silly <3333
