And the best kiss of last week goes to…
The Best Hit, Episode 20
Finally. Ji Hoon (Kim Min Jae) mans up and makes a move.
We watched him be a clueless idiot for many an episode, and then realize (in a painfully slow way) his feelings for his friend Woo Seung (Lee Se Young). He confesses, gets rejected, and quickly resolves not to give up. After such a slow burn, I’m relieved he kissed her; good grief. Thank God it wasn’t just a hug.
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.
