Ten things I hate about Choi Young Do ❥

4 04 2014

 photo cyd01.jpg

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you gel your hair.

I hate the way ride your bike, I hate it when you stare.

I hate your big dumb knitted scarf, and the way you read my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.

I hate it, I hate the way you eat your ramen, I hate how you say goodbye.

I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it when you pretend you’re okay, and how your heart stands so tall.

But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little

bit, not even at all.



[ SPOILERMETER: I pretty much talk about every key scene associated with the dude— bar one that I can think of— so skip this post for now if you want a full-on untainted viewing of the show, then come back and see if I make any sense. ]

And I thought I was immune to second male lead syndrome *repetitive head desk*

Apologies for the cheesy adaption of the poem (which, for those of you who don’t know, I ripped straight from the glorious 90s Hollywood teen flick Ten Things I Hate About You starring the beautiful, late Heath Ledger, and the super sassy Julia Stiles). Couldn’t help myself.

Anyways. A few months ago, I wouldn’t even have recognised Kim Woo Bin even if he was staring at me straight in the face. But then, a cousin asked me to stalk him on her behalf when the Running Man cast came down to Melbourne to do their filming and I came across this pic –>

 photo WB01.jpg

In a nutshell, I failed my stalking (seriously could not be more miserable about it if I tried), but I decided that ANYONE who has hair that glides this perfectly in the air as they are in motion deserves my whole-hearted affection and attention. The only other person I can think of to have such a hairy effect on me before this is Van Ness Wu from way back in the Meteor Garden days. Yep. Luscious hair warriors are my meat (and I’m a friggn’ vegetarian).

So yes basically this picture is the reason I picked up The Heirs (in the words of Andy Warhol, I am deeply superficial…) and I’m really, really glad I did because it’s been a while since I’ve fallen head over heels as passionately as I did here. Kim Woo Bin as Choi Young Do rivals the best of the best in the Second Leads Who Deserved More Love Than The Main Dude category (to be clear though, I did like Kim Tan a lot, despite a few gripes I had with his slightly overly “watchfulness” with Eun Sang). I’m talking about the Han Tae Suhks, the Yoon Ji Hoos, and the Moon Jae Shins. You know, the ones who:—

❈ Are bad boys turned good (mainly only towards you).
❈ Understand you before anyone else does (sometimes even yourself).
❈ Is there to support you when your boyfriend is being a turd.
❈ Is (usually) better looking than your boyfriend.
❈ Actually cares and wants to know why you are upset.
❈ Knows when to give you space.
❈ Is always there to save your ass in critical situations.
❈ Will silently protect you behind your back and not have you realise.
❈ Is super tall and strong, and can physically beat up your boyfriend if need be.
❈ Looks good in a wet t-shirt and/or topless.
❈ Would do anything in the world for you. This includes shattering his heart into a thousand million shards as he safeguards you on your journey to go live happily ever after with another man.

Ultimately, these guys make me realise that the love we have for our men isn’t defined by whether they are the first, second, third, fourth, or sixty-seventh lead, but it all comes down to their character— who they are, what they go through, and who they become. We want someone to show growth and maturity, we don’t want them to sook and sulk when someone doesn’t love them back, we want them to put up a good fight, and never wallow in self-pity. We don’t want them to cry more than the girl herself. Maybe they could shake hands with the guy who’s going to look after the one they love for the rest of their lives too. Sure you didn’t get the girl, but there’s no need to make her feel guilty about it, right?

If you still don’t know what I’m rambling on about, please read on. Allow me to live up to the title of this post and regurgitate a whole bunch of words about the second male lead of The Heirs. It’s probably more of a Ten Scenes I Loved situation, but hey, here goes.

To Choi Young Do:
Ten Things I Hate About You.

Counting down

#10 The way you make me laugh.

 photo cyd10.jpg

When it happened: Halfway through episode 15.
What Happened
: Eun Sang is being harassed by a couple of girls in gym glass and Young Do comes over to make sure she’s okay, which she is. She expresses her gratitude anyway, and says something about him being The Black Knight to which his frickin’ response is: If I’m the Black Knight, then does that make Kim Tan the Prince Charming on the white horse? How can that be when my skin is so much whiter than his?
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM14.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: I seriously couldn’t stop laughing. More than anything though, my heart was swelling seeing him become such a warm, endearing, and good-natured person— who knew the dude was that hilarious under that cocky eyebrowed face? Actually, I remember LOLing hard too when he took over Eun Sang from assembling her tent at school camp and he said something like, “Are you trying to build your own tomb?” What a natural comedian. (Btw, there is a Prince Charming vacancy on my side of the town, sweetness. Feel free to apply.)

#9 The way you man up and apologise.

 photo cyd09.jpg

When it happened: The final episode.
What Happened
: Young Do is at a school, but it’s not Jeguk High, it’s looking a little less extravagant… wait, is that Moon Joon Young? The guy who was bullied so badly by Young Do that he was forced to escape the prestigious school? It sure is. And he’s looking a little shocked (or scared?) at the rich heir’s sudden appearance. But Young Do is not here to harm, he is here to apologise. He acknowledges his, er, less than amicable actions towards Joon Young in the past (in front of Joon Young‘s new friends mind you) but Joon Young gives it to him, saying that he will never forgive Young Do for what he did.
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM9.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: Firstly, I’m all kinds of serious with the above meme.
Secondly, I was actually a bit irked initially with Joon Young for not accepting Young Do‘s apology. I didn’t rate the fact that he said that Young Do should feel guilty for life, but…… then I thought about it, and well, I think (A) it will serve as a reminder to Young Do to never be such a friggin’ jerk again, and (B) perhaps more importantly, in some indirect way, it was the “punishment” Young Do came to look for. It was Joon Young‘s “payback” that they both needed for emotional closure. Either way, I’m glad this scene happened. I also propose a spin-off series for Young Do (after he has my babies of course).

#8 The way you hug when you miss someone.

 photo cyd08.jpg

When it happened: Episode 17. 
What Happened
: Following some badass action from Kim Tan‘s father (seriously where did the evilness come from?), Eun Sang vanishes into thin air… or should we say, the country air. Eun Sang is hiding in a seaside town, but Young Do adopts a rather, ah, creative method to search for his first love, and whadduya know, she appears in front of him. He hugs the fudge out of her, and breathes out the following words: “Thank you. Thank you for being safe. Thank you for appearing. Thank you, so much.”
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM8.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: I have no words. Me just wants hug. Big man hug.

#7 The way you never had any intention to reveal anybody’s secrets.

 photo cyd07.jpg

When it happened: End of episode 13 / start of episode 14.
What Happened
Young Do has taken over the school’s radio station, and apparently has some hush-hush information to disclose. Kim Tan and Eun Sang realise that this might not be the most ideal thing for them so they both head for the broadcasting room in hopes of flicking off that mic before the dirty laundry is aired (see what I did there). Eun Sang gets there first, which is exactly what Young Do wants. Kim Tan eventually arrives too but Young Do locks him out and pretends to make a move on Eun Sang— “When I said that I would torment everyone else now from now on but you, Kim Tan is one of them. I’m included too.”
Kim Tan breaks in (the guy is extra strong when he is angry) and they get their fight on.
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM7.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: I know I said they get their fight on, but it was really more like The Kim Tan Attack ShowYoung Do was distressingly volunteering to stand there and take the beating, as if he was thirsting for physical pain to numb the suffering in his heart. It’s like aaarrrrgh X a hundred million. I would like to get this off my chest though— Kim Tan shi, understand I do love you, but Young Do shi has never disrespected Eun Sang as a woman, so I honestly feel like you had nothing to worry about here. I think the raising of the chair with the intent of using it as a weapon was uncalled for. After all, I believe you are the King of Forced Kisses towards our darling angelface Eun Sang, are you not? Thanks. I’m glad you heard me out.

#6 The way you simply want the people you love to hear you.

 photo cyd06.jpg

When it happened: Episode 13.
What Happened
: Young Do books out the cafe that Eun Sang works at (I want to say it’s called Mango Six..?) in an attempt to “buy a date” if you will, but she proceeds to do every unnecessary chore you can think of to avoid having any sort of interaction with the (secretly gentle) giant. He mischievously gets her attention by pouring his frappe all over the floor (I think it was a frappucino. Fine, I’m just drooling for one *slurp* *slurp*~Extra cream, please? :D). Eun Sang reluctantly sits down and asks, fuming, “What do you want from me?” Good question, missy. So what does Young Do say? “For you to answer my calls. For you to reply when I talk to you. For you to say hi when our eyes meet.” Well.
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM6.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: Seriously, could that have been more perfect? It was something about the simplicity of his words, the vulnerability behind them and the freaking genuineness that makes this scene stick in my mind. I remember one time a guy confessed his love to me in real life, and he went into WAY too much detail (I think he used every flattering adjective in the book possible) and it got to the point where I ceased listening to what he was saying and all meaning was lost. Less is most definitely more, and Young Do proves it here in this scene.

#5 The way you actually notice and care when people are upset.

 photo cyd05.jpg

When it happened: First half of episode 16.
What Happened
: Kim Tan has to go to some big important meeting after making Eun Sang cry (what a jerk? Maybe the girl just has shallow eyes?) and Young Do sees. He asks her why she is crying but she pretends not to hear. They later eat at the noodle shop together and after trying to cheer her up in his own (good) dorky ways, he questions again why she was crying earlier. She dodges the subject again. He says he’s going to let her off the hook this time, but asks her to memorise his phone number just in case she ever needs him (in light of the turmoil Kim Tan‘s Dad is putting her through at the moment)— “Call me if you need something. Of course it’s better if you call me for nothing at all.
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM5.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: I feel like I am speaking for many when I say this is every woman’s fantasy. To have a guy who understands her, to read her feelings and emotions, to sense when she is upset, and then making the gestures to cheer her up—  all without her whispering a single word. A guy who actually wants a phone conversation just because. Honest to freaking goodness, I’d die for that. And you know you would too.

#4 The way you protect others from repeating the same mistakes you did.

 photo cyd04.jpg

When it happened: Episode 18.
What Happened
: Kim Tan‘s mum (the real, biological one) is running away from the jail she has been calling home for the last 18 or what not years. She wants to see Tan before she goes, but there isn’t much time as the crazy father’s bodyguards are hot on her (expensive designer) heels. She runs into Young Do, and explains the circumstances. In the past, our Young Do probably would’ve sneered and walked away (or even done something to escalate the situation for the worse), but the Young Do we know now isn’t going to do that. He frantically sprints off to look for Kim Tan to make sure Tan gets to see his mother “one last time” and not live with the same regret that has tormented Young Do to this day.
My immediate reaction: …
 photo TMH4.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: Why am I on the edge of my seat (or bed in actual fact), even though I damn well know you’re going to make it? Because we’re going full parallel and full circle! I loved the integration of the flashback scene (and also Young Do‘s khaki jacket flowing behind him as he’s dashing around campus— looks completely touchable :D) It’s equal parts remission and redemption for the past, for himself, for Tan, for us. Everything feels right again . And it’s beautiful.

#3 The way you get mad at the situation and not the person.

 photo cyd03-05.jpg

When this happened: Episode 12.
What Happened
: Eun Sang confronts Young Do on the streets of Seoul after he finds out that she is indeed the daughter of a mute housemaid. All he wants is to eat noodles with her but she keeps thinking otherwise. He finally snaps and says this:
What is it that you think I want to do? I don’t even know how to deal with the scars in my own heart, what do you think I can do with yours? I was just sad you weren’t here. I’m happy now that you’re back. Your secret, it’s heavy, that’s all there is to it. Did I ever say I was going to do anything to you?
Upset (but still exhibiting some bona fide Asian swag), he decides to leave, saying that they should just catch up next time.
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM3.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: I’m in serous trouble. I think my heart just skipped a beat. No wait, it’s fully beginning to flutter towards this dude… gaaaaahhhh… ottoke, OTTOKE? He’s actually not that arrogant, a bit of a softie inside in fact… no000oooooooo.
This was probably the moment I began to take Young Do‘s feelings for Eun Sang seriously. It’s like he almost didn’t realise the capacity of his love for her (nor did we really), and it’s finally boiling over uncontrollably— Cha Eun Sang, you extremely, extremely lucky girl.

#2 The way you freaking eat home cooked meals.

 photo cyd02.jpg

When it happened: Not too far into episode 18.
What Happened
: Eun Sang‘s omma makes Young Do a home cooked meal, he graciously eats it, tears welling up in his reddening eyes. Eun Sang‘s mum then asks him if he is a good friend of Eun Sang‘s, to which Young Do replies, “No, darn it, I freaking like your daughter.” (<– I may have paraphrased that quote a little).
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM2-1.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: Okay, so not quite as epic as So Ji Sub‘s ramen scene in MiSa, but Kim Woo Bin‘s first-time-eating-a-home-cooked-meal-in-a-long-long-time moment here tugs at your bloody heartstrings just the same. Then, as if the whole lacking-in-maternal-love thing isn’t enough, the writers decide to remind us that our lonely second male lead ain’t gonna be gettin’ the girl of his dreams either with the “I like Eun Sang” line. I think by this stage my heart was roughly in about 2632982 pieces, yet I still probably wasn’t nearly in as much anguish as our baby Young Do. They have glue to mend this sort of sh*t, right?

#1 The way you set the person you love free.

 photo cyd01-02.jpg

When it happened: Episode 18 (Again. I get the feeling 18 is the worst episode ever.)
What Happened
: Young Do and Eun Sang are at the noodle shop (again) and Young Do declares he’s made the decision to “dump” Eun Sang, requesting that they never see or talk to each other again (let’s face it, this is probably the most efficient way to properly “get over” someone as quickly as possible). Eun Sang pleads to stay friends, but he says there is no way he can do that: “You’ve always been a woman to me, even now, you’re still a woman to me. And from now on, you will be my first love.
My immediate reaction:
 photo THM1.jpg
Subsequent thoughts: While I was moved by the dozens by the home cooked meal scene, watching all the years of loneliness melt down in that one moment within Young Do, this scene at my number one spot personally skitzed me out the most. From the moment I heard him utter those words— “From now on, you will be my first love“— that was it it. Deal sealed. Kleenex heaven. Without a doubt, there is something very tender and precious about a first love. From strangers to friends to lovers to strangers again… it’s something a lot of us can relate to. I think the fact that I recently had to get over my first love for the second time made me feel that much closer to Young Do here (sorry this blog has gotten so personal in this post… please don’t disown me… ><…) That spot where we all thought we probably could never get out of. That spot where it hurt to breathe. It sucks like hell when you can’t be with the person you love, but know that tough times don’t last forever, but tough people do ♥ So don’t worry, I am all okay, just like I know Young Do will be. In the end (and I’m sure I’ve said this before), I believe that everything does happen for a reason. When you finally meet the one you are meant to be with for the rest of your life, it will make sense why it didn’t work out with anyone else beforehand. You will be pinching yourself at just how wonderful life is.

Until then, I’ll continue to love you.

Forever and always.



And there you have it.

But omo, I can’t even believe what I’m about to say……

 photo cyd11.jpg

Choi Young Do, I think you are my favourite second male lead ever. (Hanazawa Rui, you’ll be my back-up though, right? )

I liked dreamcatchers before they were K-drama certified cool.

1 04 2014

I finished watching The Heirs (2013, SBS) around a week ago and started a full-blown review on the series, but 2629 words in, I realised, all I actually wanted to talk about was Choi Young Do. So, give me a few more days (this, in my terms, could possibly mean about a year, lol) and I will be back in hardcore second male lead syndrome gushing galore.

In the meantime, I would like to share a few wallpapers I made up, plus five quick and general thoughts on the idolicious series. No, it wasn’t perfection, many wasted opportunities actually, but I got what I needed out of it— a new lover in Choi Young Do, and many gloriously sweet, smile-inducing moments ❤❤❤❤❤❤ Enjoy, lah, and feel free to let me know what you think. X


 photo wallpaper-heirs-01.jpg  photo wallpaper-heirs-02.jpg  photo wallpaper-heirs-03.jpg


[ SPOILERMETER: A few major moments discussed. Though some are prretty predictable, it may still probably best to go watch the series before making your return for the complete enjoyment effect. I say this to you because I am that type <3 ]

Thought Number One: Show Me Da Bromance.
 photo TH05.jpg
I wanted more bromance. Quite frankly, there can never be an overdose on this. I loved the bickering and banter between Kim Tan and Choi Young Do— if there is ever a way to do love/hate relationships, THIS right here is it. They were hilarious as fudge, for example in the scene in episode 12 when Tan boots Young Do into the swimming pool, then quite expressionlessly says, “Sorry, my foot slipped “— golden to the power of all the brothers in this Universe. It’s very reminiscent of a scene in the manga/anime Slam Dunk actually, where Rukawa “accidentally” punches Sakuragi in the face and says pretty much the exact same thing (and we all know those two boys secretly loved each other X))

Above all, what I loved most was that I felt like I became a better person watching Tan and Young Do work out their differences. The moment when Young Do sprints his lungs out to make sure Tan would see his biological mother before she fled from the city towards the end of the series was freaking farking perfection. It was forgiveness in its purest form without having to express it in words. Gah, their story was so much more moving than that between our main couple.

I also would’ve liked to have seen more of the relationship between Tan and his dear hyung, Kim Won. Heck, more of Kim Won in general would’ve been more than welcome. His story seemed the most relevant to the Korean title of the series— bearing the weight of the crown and all the sacrifices that come along with it. I’d defs hug him.

Thought Number Two: Whose 엄마s In The House?
The relationship between Tan and Eun Sang‘s mothers was actually rather unexpected for me, but I 100% shipped them through and through! It just goes to show that friendships can develop in the most unlikely scenarios, yet at the same time, their bond really did make sense. At the end of the day, both women were mothers who weren’t able to proudly voice to the world who they were. In a world where tall, good-looking, hot-blooded young men distract us left, right and centre, Han Ki Ae and Park Hee Nam‘s individual and collaborative stories truly called for a spot in everybody’s hearts.
 photo TH01.jpg

Thought Number Three: Thank gawd for Park Shin Hye.
Did anyone else struggle to understand and accept just why all the guys were so gripped and entranced by Cha Eun Sung, especially Kim Tan? Like, from start to finish? Was he simply sick of all the Cali beach babes? It can’t just be Eun Sang‘s beautifully silky, soft, shiny tresses that flowed oh-so-graciously in the Californian wind, right? I love Park Shin Hye (and kudos to her and her natural, relatable, girl-next-door wholesomeness for actually keeping the character out of the I-Loathe-You! basket), however, from where I was sitting, Eun Sang never really did anything to prove she was willing to sacrifice and fight for their love as much as Tan did. To me, it seemed like she had a major case of “Poor me! Poor me!” syndrome, and pretty much just kept running away whenever any adversity showed up— even if it was the tiniest of all hiccups. Maybe it’s a lack of cultural comprehension on my part, or I missed something somewhere, but when Kim Tan‘s father “forces” her to go to another country (Buenos Aires? YES PLEASE FOR ME!), I kept thinking to myself, Eun Sang dear, you do realise you don’t have to go. It’s not like he was making life-endangering threats to you or your loved ones, all he was really doing was verbally attacking your character. Be strong enough to show him you are THE woman who will make his son a better man— and that certainly does not equate to disintegrating into non-existence (and causing our Young Do to lose so much sleep over you T_T). Please, go out there and find your OWN dream.

 photo TH03.jpg

I also screamed viciously when she watched fellow welfare student Moon Joon Young get bullied and humiliated AND NOT do anything about it. At all. From memory she momentarily tried early on, but then Kim Tan aggressively pulled her away and dished out an illicit warning. And she pretty much just left it at that. And she didn’t even say goodbye to him when he left the school! *shakes head* Poor form. I know, I know, in real life it probably is best to keep yourself away from certain exposures… but you’re supposed to be a drama heroine— in my books, you gotta work for that title.

Thought Number Four: Who said K-Pop stars were terrible actors? 
Yoon Chan Young and Lee Bo Na. Loved them. Times a hundred million. That is all. ❥ ❥ ❥
 photo TH04.jpg

Thought Number Five: I may heart Lee Min Ho.
I officially don’t hate Lee Min Ho. Okay, fine, I’m going to say it— I was actually LOVING Lee Min Ho in this series. His eyebrows, his hair, his voice, his gaze. Everything. Even the fugly sweaters. I was liking him so much that I thought about cremating my status as Arashi‘s most illogical fangirl this side of the equator— it was so intense I practically felt like I was cheating on Matsumoto Jun. You see, my dislike for Min Ho shi came solely— and probably somewhat defensively— from the whole Boys Over Flowers situation. You can read all about it here. While I stand by the Korean version being far below the perfection that was Hana Yori Dango (and Meteor Garden ), I do think a lot of my residual refusal to give Lee Min Ho another chance was simply to validate my support for my toyboy Arashi‘s youngest (and IMO the most beautiful) member as the best portrayal of The Arrogant Leader With The Bad Perm character ever. But time does indeed heal, and well, the Californian sunshine does make everyone look better.

 photo TH02.jpg

I loved that as the male lead, Kim Tan wasn’t an arrogant prick to begin with who spoke to people with zero respect and made life hell for the girl (and every other human being) for no apparent reason. He was gentle, calmly spoken, and had a sense of loneliness and empathy that you more often associate with a second male lead. Yes, he was the totally cuddleable, non-prickly softie. I was really feeling him. Really, really wanting to feel feeling him. Though upon his return to Kimchi land, he did seem to become a little bit aggressive and possessive— weren’t like 99% of his pashing services physically forced upon Eun Sang? So wouldn’t work on me. I would be kneecapping him in the nether regions for sure… before running to Young Do (with some sort of aegyo action possibly :D) and asking him to further kick Kim Tan‘s ass for me.

Unfortunately as well, compared to Young Do at least, Tan really didn’t show enough transitional maturity. Who he was in the beginning, was more or less who he was in the end. Though I think he was actually sweeter in the first few episodes— as in, I would a thousand trillion per cent date American Tan, but would definitely have some reservations towards Korean Tan (sad to say that the leading male and female characters showed the least amount of growth in this series— in fact, all the subplots were more exciting than their love story… m(_ _)m). I still love him though. For all the sh*t his family put him through, and for all the emotional baggage he carries, he definitely had a clear pass to be the jackass of the century. But I’m glad he wasn’t. Overall a nice male lead but…

 photo TH14.gif

…Just not as nice as Choi Young Do :D

Aaaahh can’t wait to dedicate an entire post to the guy.

 Additional thought: Min Ho and Woo Bin wore slightly too much makeup in this series. I think it was to the point where I would actually move my face away if they lent in for a kiss… nah, I would still so totally go for it, lol.

Will the real Eita san please stand up?

27 03 2014

Anooooooooo… Farewell Buki, Shunny-kun, and my chubby bunny Haru-chan…

 photo unoeita14.jpg

I’m thinking it was either a case of who has the most hair or perhaps it was who has had the most amount of (majorly questionable) hairstyles, but it appears that Shiseido Japan have ditched three of the famous four UNO Fog Bar boys, leaving the one and only, big hair monster master himself, my lobster, Nagayama Eita san (sumimasen, so many inappropriate insertions already -_-ll..).  Anyhow, here is the CM – aka How To Tame Your Hair In 14 Seconds Flat.

I’m quite sure I could watch him play with his, er, hair, all day long, lol. While we are talking about the man, I recently finished Saikou no Rikon, and I have to say… I was wildly disappointed. Eita was freaking farking adorkable in it (who didn’t chuckle themselves silly at the awkwardness of his running style, lol :D :D) but, while individually everyone carried their parts very well, something in the chemistry between the cast was lacking for me. To be quite honest, the love quadrangle situation in Saikou didn’t feel 100% necessary / wasn’t really played out in a way that I feel like made my time worthwhile either. *shrugs* Who knows, maybe I’m just unable to relate because I’ve never been married before.

Or maybe I’m secretly snarky because I am single after all, lol. ANYWAY! :D


*cough* *cough* *cough* On a side note, I was avoiding The Heirs, but have officially caved after seeing how beautiful Kim Woo Bin is from the Running Man Australian episodes (whose cast I tried to stalk while they were in Melbs btw, but failed miserably).

But holy sh*t, herd in all the magical cows, this was what I think I must’ve been subconsciously afraid of – having my feelings for Lee Min Ho turned around post Boys Over Flowers. No. NO. NOOO to the the power of all the Konglish you can squeeze into my kimchi cladded out fridge. I’m almost halfway through, and I definitely feel a review coming on for the series, but all I have to say for now is:—

Woo Bin, please step your game up and save me.

And fix your Asian Ken doll hair while you’re at it as well (this is a hair post after all). Love you long time, Choi Young Do. X
