Sure, he’s 30 and she’s 41.
Which isn’t that crazy in reality, but he’s of the forever-21 face of great Asian genetics and supposedly fantastical-Korean-skincare-products-at-your-disposal variety.
Hyun Jae (Yoon Si Yoon) and Bo Hee (Yoon Son Ha) were in a relationship together, twenty-ish years ago.
And in present day (in the drama), Bo Hee has a son who is the same age as him.
So by way of my completely logical understanding, it’s like he kissed his friend’s mom.
Damn. This guy knows what he’s doing.
In what must be the swoonworthiest moment in kdrama eons, I hereby report that this edition of KOTW is quite the number.
Yoo So Joon (Lee Je Hoon) x Song Ma Rin (Shin Mina). Tomorrow With You, Episode 4. Give me a moment.
After three eps of “accidental” run-ins, and So Joon pursuing Song Ma Rin like a creeper, though self-serving in nature, their fates are intertwined, so it seems.
And there they are, in episode 4.
And this was a Whopper of an episode. A Big Mac. A Dave’s Big ‘N Juicy. A Double-Double with Grilled Onions and Fries, Animal Style.
And then this awesome kiss scene pops up; it was going to happen.
But these characters and the plot lines leading up to it make it feel apropos and not contrived. Like things are happening a little quickly but you’re there, caught up in the moment, feeling the sparks in the scene.
You know what I mean.
Remind me to direct Lee Je Hoon in a kiss scene at some point. Easy as pie.
Ah, the good ol’ You-Thought-I-Was-Dead-But-I’m-Just-Narcoleptic move.
Which brings us to our Kiss-Of-The-Week.
Moo Myung (Park Seo Joon) finally dishes out the lipservice (A Witch’s Romance s/o) to Aro (Go Ara) on Hwarang, Episode 10.
This moment comes after he passes out (that narcolepsy we first learned about in episode 1) and falls off a horse. Aro checks his pulse, semi-attempts CPR, then believes him to be dead.
But he comes to, pops up, and grabs Aro, kissing her.
I have to say, the moment felt a little overdue, yet pushed. What with the second lead already making his move in Episode 6, and, honestly, we’ve seen far more scenes with Jin Heung (Park Hyung Sik) having steadily developed feelings for Aro than Moo Myung.
But here we are at the end of Episode 10.
I guess he and I wake up differently.
