My Strange Hero: Episodes 15-16

Love is truly in the air this episode, with our main couple practically showing their hearts on their sleeves. They’ll have to keep their hearts hidden, though, if they want this relationship to survive the dangers of Seolsong High. Within these halls, there are students ready to gossip, teachers ready to pry, and a certain director ready to do everything in his power to tear them apart.

 
EPISODE 15 RECAP

Having lost Bok-soo and Soo-jung, Min-ji drags Gyung-hyun all over to search for them. She finally spots them and is heartbroken to realize that they’re kissing. Also seeing this, Gyung-hyun whips her around and brings her into an embrace, surprising her.

Min-ji is even more surprised when he sits her down, encourages her to cry, and wraps his own scarf around her neck. He leaves to get some tissues, and she just looks after him, wondering why her heart is suddenly acting up.

After lots (and lots) of kissing, Bok-soo and Soo-jung sit awkwardly in the car. They’re so nervous that they don’t know what to do with themselves, but once they hit the road and Bok-soo braves holding her hand, they’re easily smiling again.

Kang Bok-soo: best dresser

The couple arrive at Soo-jung’s home, and Bok-soo asks if today marks their first day of dating. Soo-jung starts to say that they’re still teacher and student, but Bok-soo surprises her with a peck on the cheek. “Good night, Teacher,” he says. “Make sure you dream of me.” She laughs and smacks him, making him scurry off.

From afar, Se-ho (who had come to deliver some of Soo-jung’s favorite snacks) watches the whole thing. He falls into an old high school memory of Bok-soo showing him a ring that he’d gotten for Soo-jung.

Later that day, Se-ho had found Soo-jung studying alone and offered up some notes from his private tutor. He figured that this way, they could have a fair competition for first place. Then hearing her belly grumble, he hurried out to buy some snacks. But when he returned, he stopped short at seeing her eat with Bok-soo.

The huge smile on her face made Se-ho’s own smile disappear. He dropped the bag of food and walked away, just as present-day Se-ho does.

Inside, Soo-jung worries about messing around with a student. She seems to forget all about that, though, when the kiss from earlier comes to mind.

And meanwhile, at the Kang home, In-ho laughs at a webtoon instead of studying. His mom bursts in, and he reflexively hides his phone. So-jung beams with pride to see her son working so late, which only makes In-ho feel worse.

The next day, Bok-soo is practically walking on sunshine as he heads to school. He sees Teacher Park up ahead and attacks him with a back hug (cuuuuute). Park is scared to have Bok-soo act this way but smiles when Bok-soo thanks him for being “sick” last night.

Soo-jung is feeling pretty giddy herself, up until Se-ho walks up to her and notes that she looks tired. Bok-soo sees this exchange and wonders what’s going on between the two.

So-ra sees the exchange as well and gossips to classmate Do-hyun about their teacher and director dating. According to legend, the two were high school sweethearts, with Se-ho giving Soo-jung first place out of love. Bok-soo angrily interrupts the story, insisting that Soo-jung is dating someone else.

When his classmates ask who that person is, Bok-soo merely delves into one of his quotes and says that truth is closer than they think. Soo-jung walks in, and So-ra immediately accuses her of dating Se-ho, which she scoffs at. She tells So-ra to stop spreading false rumors, earning a smile and wink from Bok-soo.

The truth is closer than you think *wink*

 

Later, Bok-soo gets Soo-jung alone in the infirmary and demands to know what Se-ho said to her that morning. She asks if she seriously has to report to him, and he nods, reminding her that they kissed. But she argues that a simple kiss doesn’t solidify their relationship; he needs to ask her to make it official. Before they can argue any further, they hear the nurse approaching and quickly come up with a cover.

When Nurse Park comes in, she finds Soo-jung unknowingly rubbing liquid pain reliever on Bok-soo’s eye. Soo-jung panics and runs out, leaving Bok-soo in Nurse Park’s care. But as Nurse Park helps him out, she gets distracted by how handsome he is. Pffft, this joke never gets old.

Afterwards, Teacher Park finds a dejected Bok-soo by the stairs. Knowing the situation all too well, Park suggests that Bok-soo date Soo-jung after he graduates. But Bok-soo thinks it shouldn’t matter since they’re both adults. “I’ve wasted enough time,” he says. “From now on, I’m not going to hesitate.”

During Soo-jung’s lecture, Bok-soo (ever the man of subtlety) drops a note by her feet. She snatches it up, while Bok-soo giggles to himself. He then realizes that Young-min saw and stammers a weak excuse. After class, Soo-jung excitedly reads the note–a map to the Your Favors office, followed by the words “Let’s have date!!”

Meanwhile, So-jung gives herself a makeover so she can join in on the honors class moms’ meetings. At the meeting place, the moms laugh over the fact that So-jung has no idea that In-ho is in the lower-level class. They think it’d be more fun not to tell her.

Speaking of whom, So-jung struts in wearing her finest clothes and takes a seat. The moms ask what her major was, and she explains the sport sepak takraw (kick volleyball). She even stands to demonstrate, kicking in her heels.

The group then discuss the upcoming exams, and So-jung pays extra close attention.

EPISODE 16 RECAP

Soo-jung follows the map to the Your Favors office and gasps to find the room full of lit candles. She starts blowing them out, afraid the room will catch on fire, and Bok-soo jumps out of hiding to explain it’s supposed to be romantic.

He hands her a ring box, and she jokes that he’s so predictable–that is, until she takes the ring out and sees the engraving “2009, SJ & BS.” He tells her that it’s the ring he meant to give to her back then.

“My heart is like that ring,” he says. “It’s nothing special and pretty average-looking.” But he’s kept it close to him all this time, just as he’s kept Soo-jung in his heart all this time.

With that said, he asks if she’ll make his dream come true and let him become her boyfriend. Speechless, Soo-jung just smiles and nods. Bok-soo smiles too and offers to put the ring on her finger.

The ring doesn’t quite fit, though, so Soo-jung slides it onto her pinky instead. She looks up at him and promises to never lose this heart that he’s given her.

My heart is like this old ring

 

Bok-soo gives her a huge bouquet of flowers as well, and the two go out to continue their date. But Soo-jung freaks out to see So-ra and Do-hyun coming their way and drags Bok-soo into hiding.

Once the coast is clear, Bok-soo jokes that he loves the thrill of all this. Though Soo-jung laughs, she tells him not to wear his uniform on dates and to keep his distance at school. Across the street, an unknown person snaps pictures of the couple. Ah, crap.

Exams begin the following day, and So-jung comes to school all dressed up again to see In-ho. She enters the honors class and is confused when the teacher informs her that her son is in the Wildflower Class.

She finds the right class and looks through the window, utterly destroyed to see In-ho circling random answers before lying his head on his desk. Furious, she bursts into the classroom and smacks him. “How could you do this?” she cries as Bok-soo and Soo-jung rush to their side. “How long were you going to fool me?!”

So-jung becomes hysterical, shouting that she worked so hard to raise him and that they both ought to just die. Bok-soo tells his sister to calm down, holding her back as In-ho runs out.

Hearing Bok-soo say “Noona,” the other students realize that he and In-ho are uncle and nephew.

At home, So-jung takes down all of In-ho’s forged awards and falls to the floor sobbing. Mom comes in and asks what’s wrong, but So-jung can’t stop crying, so she just brings her into a hug.

Meanwhile, Gyung-hyun and Min-ji are out looking for a restaurant when they see In-ho sitting out in the cold. They take him to their office and call Bok-soo and Soo-jung over.

In-ho refuses to go home, afraid of all the damage his years of lying have done, but Soo-jung won’t take no for an answer. She shoves him out of the room, Bok-soo right behind them.

The three of them enter the Kang home and find So-jung drinking alone. She looks up at In-ho and starts hitting him, until Soo-jung steps forward and grabs her wrist. Soo-jung asks that she listen to In-ho’s reason for lying.

So-jung argues that there are no good reasons for lying, making In-ho finally speak up. “You smiled,” he says simply, confusing her. So he explains that after seeing some kids fake their report cards, he impulsively did the same. He’d brought his fake grades home, and she’d smiled so widely that day.

Now crying, In-ho says that he wanted to be a good son and that he really did try. But he gave up when his real grades continued to disappoint. He isn’t good at studying, and with no skills or dreams, he concludes that he’s just trash. In-ho runs up to his room, while So-jung, who’s crying too, runs out the front door.

Bok-soo walks Soo-jung home, stopping to stare at her hand and marvel in her strength; even he can’t take on his sister. Soo-jung admits that she sees a lot of herself in In-ho. People assumed she was better than them, so she felt like she was hiding her true self.

Bok-soo tells her to go ahead and hide, because he knows who she is, and he knows that she’s a good person. They smile sweetly at each other as they continue to hold hands.

The next morning, So-jung stops In-ho and urges him to drink his usual herbal medicine before leaving. As he does, she tells him, “You’re not trash.” She’s always treasured him and she always will, so she wants him to march to school with confidence. In-ho smiles, tears in his eyes. Bok-soo then walks in, and lunges for the herbal medicine. So-jung snatches it away and snaps to get some from his own mom. Bok-soo smirks, glad to see that everything’s back to normal.

Bok-soo and In-ho walk into class together, and to In-ho’s surprise, the kids don’t give him a hard time. His former bullies even praise his mom for her impressive strength. In-ho reveals that his mom won a gold medal for sepak takraw, and Bok-soo smiles from his desk.

Se-ho takes Soo-jung out to talk, determined to get something off his chest. “I see your loneliness,” he says, jumping right into it. He knows what that’s like, so he wants to be with her and make her happy. Soo-jung stops him right there and firmly states that she’s not like him. Se-ho sadly watches her touch her ring as she continues that she isn’t lonely. And she’s not the one who can help his loneliness, so she’s rejecting him.

Knowing this is because of Bok-soo, Se-ho loses his cool and asks why she would choose that good-for-nothing ring over him. She reminds him that he used to like Bok-soo just as much, but he refuses to remember. He warns her that she’s going to regret this decision, that she and Bok-soo will have a difficult time.

She tells him not mess with Bok-soo; he went through enough because of them. Furthermore, she doesn’t understand why he’s acting this way. So he leans in and says that he can’t have her looking at him like a former classmate or a boss. He stands to leave, saying she’s welcome to come to him at any time.

At home, Se-ho flinches to find his mother waiting for him. Mom asks if he really wants “that girl” so badly, and his eyes widen. He tells her not to mess with Soo-jung. Mom raises a hand to hit him, but he blocks it and continues to say that if anyone will destroy Soo-jung, it’ll be him.

Se-ho heads to his room, where he gets a phone call from his secretary. He tells him to go as planned and that he’ll take responsibility for it.

The next day, the faculty is shocked to have none other than Kim Myung-ho reinstated to the administration office. Teacher Ma comments that Kim has been known to scam contracted teachers, and Soo-jung tenses up. And curiously, she’s not the only one in the room who looks guilty.

Soo-jung finds Kim Myung-ho and asks why someone like him is back. But the guy just smiles and says they should get along, especially since one word from him could get her fired. He walks off, only to bump into Bok-soo. He doesn’t have to say much for Bok-soo to realize that this is Se-ho’s doing.

Bok-soo turns and marches straight into Se-ho’s office to ask about Kim Myung-ho. However, Se-ho thinks the person Bok-soo should be worrying about is himself–what would happen if people found out he was dating a teacher? Is he really going to keep seeing her?

Bok-soo’s face falls, but he quickly recomposes himself and says, “I’m going to continue dating her.” He knows what game Se-ho is trying to play and he’s not going to fall for it. More importantly, he knows that Se-ho wasn’t like this before. He asks if he unintentionally wronged him, just as he did with Soo-jung.

To Bok-soo’s surprise, Se-ho’s eyes fill with tears as he angrily states that he doesn’t know him. He doesn’t know how miserable he’s made him. And he thinks it’s just like Bok-soo to go around acting self-righteous. Either way, Se-ho concludes, Bok-soo and Soo-jung will never be able to be happy.

COMMENTS

We’ve reached the halfway mark, and I am just in love with this show as I was at the beginning. When I watch a high school drama, all I want are insightful themes and relatable characters that I can root for. And with My Strange Hero, it feels like a bonus to have all of that and a despicable villain that I’m tempted to hug. And then slap. And then hug again. Every scene between our two male leads is like fire–it’s intense and unbelievably frightening, but at the same time, it’s mesmerizing. And while I am digging the forbidden school romance, this tragic fight between the three friends is what I find gripping. In fact, it’s this fight and the dangerous effect it has on the romance that has me the most on edge.

The ending surprised me because it was the first time that Se-ho somewhat opened up to Bok-soo since the day of the roof incident. Like Bok-soo, I wanted to know why Se-ho was so negatively fixated on him. Like Bok-soo, I was surprised that the answer was pretty much “Because you made my life miserable.” Se-ho’s response was so raw and pained that I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him. But again, he’s just making things worse for himself. He’s pushing Soo-jung away when he could still have her as a good friend. And he’s pushing Bok-soo away when he could still have him as, I would argue, a vital friend. If Bok-soo gave Se-ho the same speech he’d given Young-min in his broken glass booth, maybe things would be different. If only Se-ho could see that the majority of his suffering is self-inflicted.

But no matter how hard Bok-soo, or even Soo-jung, try, there’s no convincing Se-ho. And these are probably the only two people who genuinely care about him, despite all that he’s done. Hell, even Teacher Park still cares about him. It’s like they’re talking to a brick wall that only hurts them when they try to get through. At this point, I don’t know what will get him to listen. If he can’t even accept a clear-as-day rejection from Soo-jung, then it’ll be hard for him to accept much else.

Main conflict aside, we did have one family issue resolved. I didn’t think that In-ho’s lies would blow up in his face as much as they did, but in retrospect, it had to happen. Both In-ho and his mom had to be that upset to show how they truly felt about the situation. And I’m glad that So-jung was so quick to support him again, even though he’s struggling in school. Bok-soo has received the same support from his own mom all his life, but I don’t think he’s ever really needed it. Bok-soo knows who he is, he knows what he wants, and he has the confidence to deal with any consequences. Kids like In-ho aren’t necessarily like that, though; they don’t know how to deal with the pressures of grades and colleges and jobs. I think it’s great that the show is taking characters that would typically be written off as slackers and actually giving them more depth.

Bok-soo has made a place for himself at Seolsong High–in the Wildflower Class and in Soo-jung’s heart. And that’s all at stake now that Se-ho has decided to use his friends’ secrets to his advantage. Bok-soo and Soo-jung are officially a couple, and that scumbag Kim Myung-ho is officially back in their lives, so the high school might as well be a ticking bomb ready to go off. Luckily, Bok-soo knows that Se-ho has a few secrets himself. This is a fight that neither are going to back down from, and it could very well hurt them both. But if In-ho and his mom were able to recover from their fight, then I have to believe that Bok-soo and Se-ho can recover from theirs. Sometimes confrontations require a little crying and screaming before reaching the right dialogue.

I'm so sad that it's January and YSH is in yet another fantastic, adorable, drama and nobody is watching. What is with these ratings? It's so sad because this episode was just...

Maybe January is not the time for romance??? Maybe it's the time for action and adventure and not adorable. With New Year's Resolutions and plans of action for the new year, maybe romance is just taking a back seat temporarily. I really don't know, but I totally lost interest in this drama this week. I started watching this week's episodes and just could not keep my interest focused on the romance. The thought of another 8 hours of these two and their love life was just so boring to me I decided to quit with the drama and go do something productive instead. I am a big fan of the main male lead and the secondary male, but sadly, I just can't seem to get any interest back for this drama.

First I must say that Kwak Dong Yeon is an AH-MAZING actor, it's honestly very hard to believe he's only like 21/22. I've been a fan of his for a while now, but he just keeps getting better. Can't wait for him to finally move up to main lead status. Oh Se Ho is such a complicated character that I feel sorry for him, but also want him to pay for what he's done. His mother is twat & he knows this yet the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. He's just like her in so many ways except he actually has feelings (a bit misplaced, but a heart is there). I want to hug him because he's been pressured all his life to be the best or else made to feel like he doesn't matter, but that doesn't excuse the pain he's caused other people. Idk what it'll take for him to finally see the light, but he's going to experience a lot of pain before he does.
With Se Ho on a war path, I'm glad Bok Su & Soo Jeong are officially together now because they have a lot to protect and hold onto.
What I love about this drama is even the side characters have a purpose especially the students in the Wildflower Class, many of them have dreams & just want to be respected like their book smart peers. I really hope by the end of this show that they show people not to disregard those kids who don't get good grades, life isn't all about who has the higher scores & I love that we see these students are truly happy.

First, I second the admiration for Kwak Dong Yeon. He's fantastic.

I don't think Se-ho was ever in love with Soo-jung. I think he was in love with Bok-soo. Okay, it's a kDrama, so probably not, but that scenario explains so much more than the current one. Why his mother treats him the way she does (prejudice, perhaps?). Why he hates himself (societal expectations). Why he spent more time and energy trying to split his friends up once they were together than trying to win her over in the first place. Again, it's a kDrama, which means they probably won't go there, but this show has been consistently so much better than I expected that there's a piece of me that thinks "maybe"...

Personally, I don't see that. I think it just stems from his mother pressuring him & jealousy towards Bok Su. He wanted to please her & as such, he didn't take it well that he was constantly beat from the top spot (and by a girl no less). Then he wanted her for himself (I do agree, he was never in love with Soo Jeong, just the idea of her) for 2 reasons: She was the top student & perhaps he'd be able to get in some good graces with his mother and he felt he was better for her than Bok Su. When Se Ho came around, Bok Su & Soo Jeong were basically a thing & he felt somewhat jealous that someone like Kang Bok Su could still get the girl & be well liked despite his failing grades. Mentally, Se Ho has always been a mess but he was used to being the top student until he got to Sulseong & he was torn between having genuine friends and being a good son.

Oh, I see it. Definitely. This being a kdrama it'll be a platonic, bromantic love but he definitely loved Boksoo. I thought that scene on the roof only made sense if it was motivated by a desire for Boksoo's attention and affection.

I can see your point & while I do think Se Ho did love Bok Su in some way, I highly doubt it was anything romantic. Bok Su was one of the only people who treated Se Ho as a person so I can see the affection & where it'd come from. His feelings for Soo Jeong (if you want to call them that) were likely formed from a similar reason: She didn't treat him like he was rich or smart, just like the average student. This is how her & Bok Su are alike, everyone is the same in their eyes. Since both Bok Su & Soo Jeong were generally happy, he wanted a piece of that as well, but he was brought up to step on people instead of forming real bonds.

I see this, but his clear obsession with Boksoo doesnt necessarily need a romantic love (it could be, but I feel like it's unlikely they'd go all in with this). He is just obsessed with Boksoo and Soojeong and in general how happy they are. He wants love and affection and attention so bad, because he is deprived of it. He's envious of what Boksoo has, what Soojeong has, and what both of them have together, all of which he doesn't have, he has a huge inferiority complex and for some reason the only way he can express all of this is by lashing out and destroying everything. If he's miserable, other shouldn't be allowed to be that happy.

He's a complex character partially shaped by terrible parenting and a bad education system (and a terrible world to be honest).

I love it. I want to see him go down the deep end. I want to see how he ticks. And I want our heroes to kick his ass and take him down, but also help him to come out as a person who is ready for healing on the other side.

I want a lot of things.

I really like how the show portrays the pressure and the stress that students face these days. When In-Ho said that he’s trash, my heart really broke because that’s how many students feel when they do not achieve the marks that their parents expect them to achieve.
Kwak Dong Yeon did an excellent job at portraying the character of Se-Ho. When Se-Ho shouted β€œSave me” to Bok Soo, I believe it was really a cry for help from the pressures of the society and mainly his Mother.
Maybe it’s called My Strange Hero because Bok Soo is going to β€œsave” everyone from the pressures of society!

Darn. Kwak Dongyeon in that final scene was so gripping. He made Seho a lonely, pained psychopath that I want to hate and pity at the same time. I like that he didn't expect Boksu to ask him if he unknowingly hurt him in the past.. For a moment I thought BS can get through his defenses. Like you said, his misery is really self-inflicted. He wasn't able to move past his jealousy and embrace friendship with Boksu and Soojung. I hope he realizes that jealousy can happen between friends but that doesn't mean he can't be happy in their company. And that his misery can't justify his actions that hurt people in the past and at present.
Also, I was actually taken aback when his mother just smirked and said it's better to crush than get crushed.. A mother like that can really raise a child with psychological issues.

As for the other mother in this ep, In-ho's mom was blinded by her rage that she just blew up on him there and then. It was painful to watch but oh so close to reality. There are parents who dote on their children more than they should that it becomes a burden. The pressure in school is real (esp. if an Ivy class exists) and even more exhausting if it happens at home also. We have seen this coming the moment mom got in contact with the Ivy class mommas. What I find funny is how she got there to deliver food when they look like typical drama mothers who brag about their wealth and power. Lol.

As for the paparazzi, I think it's either Seho or his mom. I hope this drama doesn't go for noble idiocy when that photo gets used against them.. the same way they dealt with Inho's post-confrontation day with his classmates.
Please be good until the end, drama.

I laughed when Soo-jeong blew out the candles because they were a fire hazard. Finally, someone said it! People in kdramas lighting fifteen thousand candles indoors to 'set the mood' has always bugged me for this exact reason.

How much do I love this couple? It's not lost on me that the qualities that one could argue make Soo-jeong "unladylike" (being physically strong, pinning him to walls (lol), swearing) are the very qualities he likes about her.
And the way she lights up around him? Kills me.

I thought the same about the candles ! Someone FINALLY said it !
It reminded me of that seen in the movie with Lee Seung Gi (weather forecast ?) when he sets fire to his apartment while lighting candles for his 100 days anniversary : I always thought it was dangerous and unnecessary ^^

Agree with you too about the "unladylike" qualities of SJ : these are actually the character traits that I think make her more interesting :) And clearly BS totally agrees with you too (his face when she pins him to walls, both in high school and in this episode, is priceless xD)

I'm with you and continue to enjoy this show. Not only does his smile just make my toes curl from cuteness. But I'm loving how Soo-Jung pulled her strength as a teacher for In-ho and took charge. We now seeing really how committed she is as a teacher.

But I LOVED how Min-ji responded to Gyung-hyun being kind to her. Of course I am totally shipping these two. She is beginning to grow on me.
Totally enjoying the fluffiness and angst that makes up this show.

I'm going to echo everyone and agree Kwak Do Yeon is fantastic. I will say though, he infuses Se-Ho with far and away more character than the writing does. The writing makes Se-Ho an out and out villain, why Kwak Do Yeon gives Se-Ho much more gray. I was actually disappointed the writer made him so black and white.

I also agree that Se-Ho doesn't actually like Sop Jung, I think he likes the reaction that he gets from her. He craves affection like a coke addict craves cocaine. He noticed that Bok Soo was at his most happy around Soo Jung even though Bok Soo was an affable guy generally. That shiny shiny happiness is what he wants. Initially I thought he is obsessed or in love( no, it's a kdrama) with Bok Soo, but I think he wants the inner glow of peace and happiness Bok Soo has, that is topped off by Soo Jung. That's why he screamed for him to save him, and that is why the fixation on Soo Jung.

Inner Peace is so hard to come by. Unfortunately because his mother is psycho, he doesn't have a healthy way of getting there, so he fixates on others.

Lol, that was my novel for the day, if you got through it, thanks.πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„

I missed this recap yesterday because I fell asleep early. I've been waiting to say my piece about this drama. It's silly. Yes, it's silly that Bok Su gets to go back to high school at 27, but that doesn't matter. This drama has been entertaining and engaging. Since I newly discovered Yoo Seung ho after watching dramas at least a decade. Duh! This week I want to talk about Kwak Dong yeon. I've been a fan since Modern Farmer. Wasn't I surprised to realize he was only 17 then. He's only 21 now and playing 27. He has always been cute but he is scary handsome in this drama. He's also creepy AF, and doing a darned good job of sucking all the air out of every room he enters. Well done baby man.

The only thing that I kept noticing (and getting distracted by) is how red the hero's lipstick is compared to the heroine's to the point that it makes the heroine look pale and sickly in comparison. We all know YSH has luscious lips, so the red lipstick was a tad unnecessary.

Yes, this, all of this. A thousand times this.
I do wish the writing was a little tighter but in terms of the characters and the current setup, I just love it so much.

Yay! I love seeing love for Soo-jeong. I'm like Bok-soo in that I, too, think Soo-jeong is the bee's knees.

Seeing Yoo Seung Hoo reminded me of myself back at 2009 when I first saw Lee Seung Gi in Brilliant Legacy (what a brilliant drama it was). I was a hard-core fan of Seung Gi oppa (like only him) for like half a decade :)) And now I know YSH might be the next =)) Only that I'm much older and no more oppa, new actors are so young now.

By the way, I just stalked YSH's Instagram a bit and saw Kwak Dong Yeon is a frequent commenter. How sweet of them to interact on social media.
