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.
And this week’s edition of KOTW goes to: Hwarang!
After weeks of staring at each other, Soo Yeon (Lee Da In) and Ban Ryu (Do Ji Han) finally got it S.W.A.K. Thank God. That was a lot of staring, and even then, they were few and far between.
Props to Soo Yeon for making the first move.
I suppose there’s nothing like leaving and the chance of returning only-if-you’re-not-dead to catalyze some progress in the love department. (That lock of hair was creepy af though.)
And our second lead beats the first lead to the kiss.
Honestly, I did not see this coming.
The King (Park Hyung Sik), who is currently going incognito in Hwarang, gets consumed with emotion and confronts his feelings for Aro (Go Ara) in Episode 6. The episode had been full of him witnessing the growing closeness between her and Moo Myung (Park Seo Joon), who is pretending to be her long-lost brother Sunwoo.
Ah, the love triangle.
Anyway, the King’s jealousy has been building over the last couple episodes, and now we finally see some action. Albeit, it’s on a very unsuspecting Aro. Hell, even I wasn’t expecting the first kiss scene to pop up for at least another episode or two.
He pounces on her.
And Moo Myung approaches, of course, just outside the door.
And we’ve got another shameless cliffhanger on our hands. Ah, Show!
