Do you think that if Ji Sung hadn’t been awarded the Daesang at the 2015 MBC Drama Awards, there’d have been actual mutiny?

by | November 30, 2015 | 43 Comments
It’s kind of funny how on paper, this movie sounded like Before Sunrise when Yoo Yeon-seok (Warm and Cozy) and Moon Chae-won (Good Doctor) were cast: A man and a woman meet by chance on the KTX train from Seoul to Busan and a romance unfolds over the course of a day. But it turns... More »

Wait, wait, I get to see Yoo Yeon-seok (Warm and Cozy) and Lee Seon-kyun (A Hard Day) on my screen at the same time? But where will I look?

After wading through the arduous portion of denial with a side of noble idiocy, we finally get to the good stuff: fluttery anticipation of first dates, how to seduce your boyfriend without seeming too eager (Answer: There’s no such thing as too eager!

What a difference a little sincerity makes. Who knew that the secret was to loosen your tightly held grasp on reason? (Who even knew Gun-woo had that much reason to hold onto in the first place?)

Get ready for an episode of cute!… is something I can’t say, despite the image above that might suggest otherwise.
