by | June 17, 2011 | 43 Comments
Uhm Tae-woong felt left out of his buddy Lee Seon-kyun‘s budding bromance with another (gasp!) so he had to be the subject of the next post. I’m sorry, is that you being the world’s biggest dork? I thought it was. But the bigger question is, why can’t I get enough of it? The crazier Uhm... More »

Cute! Cuteness abounds in this episode, where romance blooms left and right, for every pair and every side of the love quadrangle, making this one of the most effective three-pairing foursomes I’ve seen in a while.
