How will Seo Won explain TWO men in her apartment to her parents?

She'll say Gil Ro is her boyfriend and Do Ha is a pervert that snuck into her place.
She'll say Do Ha is her boyfriend and Gil Ro is the pervert.
She'll tell her parents the three of them were practicing for a special NIS operation!

Ugh Joo Won is TOO PRECIOUS. Look at him cuddle like a puppy :).
ceecile 10th-Feb-2013 03:22 am (UTC)
And playing with UTW's belly button XD Seriously the way he looks at him you can see the stars in his eyes. He's always following him like a cute puppy. Which I guess is fitting given UTW's love for dogs.
purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:26 am (UTC)
ikr?! He looks up to UTW so much haha. Joo Won is such a hyung-lover though. The aegyo is nonstop when it comes to the guys on 1N2D...
asnindie 10th-Feb-2013 03:49 am (UTC)
Uhm tae Wong must be a great hyung lol. Reminds me of CHun Hee and Kim Sooro from FO.

the last scene of ep6 was the best thing ever omg LOL
i died laughing, omg literally had tears of laughter at this scene. the moment doha falls out from the closet and then all hell broke loose...i just couldn't bwahaha

purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:21 am (UTC)
I loved the last scene too!! At first I was watching them fight on the bed, and was like "woah sexual tension~" but then when her parents walked in... I died laughing, and then Do Ha out of closet XD!! It's like the situation could NOT get any worse for Seo Won...
yingmoon26 10th-Feb-2013 03:26 am (UTC)
yaaaaaa i was like "omg gilro is going to kiss her"
then her parents pop out

i really want to see how she gets out of this one bwahaha
purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:29 am (UTC)
same here! like they said at dramabeans... what can you even SAY in a situation like that?! Especially since she has to cover up the NIS thing, but not chase Gil Ro away...
ceecile 10th-Feb-2013 03:31 am (UTC)
Ok back to the drama. Some things do bother me.
1) They are seriously the worse spies ever.
2) The way Joo Won's character suddenly became enamoured with Seo Won. Like there was no build up, it happened out of nowhere. Yeah they sorta address it but that was totally lame imo and doesn't count. It felt more like they had to rush his feelings out because he was going to leave the program. I'm glad that at least with Seo Won we get to see her start to see him in a different light. I can believe in her growing feelings whereas for Joo Won's I'm just like "Why?".
3) Up till Ep 5 I didn't like the mains so I'm happy to find them more likable now.

Overall I like it but I'm disappointed with it, it's not as good as it could be.
purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:37 am (UTC)
1. They ARE the worst ever. The only thing that makes this excusable is the fact it's comedy, and so their stupid actions just add to silliness.

2. I thought their feels came too quickly too. I think an extra episode at the training academy building the relationship might have made it seem more natural.

3. I liked them a bit sooner than that.

I agree that I'm still disappointed it's not as good as it could have been. I was hoping for more of a Mr. and Mrs. Smith type of badass humor, not such silly-exaggerated humor.
ceecile 10th-Feb-2013 03:47 am (UTC)
Ah for me it's the opposite. I expected it to be more of a campy comedy. That was the premise too.
It's like the drama is having a constant personality crisis. It can't be serious and super silly at the same time. - I don't mean that it's not possible to do that, just that this drama fails at finding the proper balance. That's why #1 bothers me. On the one hand they were trained for a year by the top people, the missions themselves and the feelings behind them are very real and serious but on the other hand they totally suck and we can't take them seriously when we should.
That's probably my biggest issue, how they can't manage a middle ground for the tone of the show because then I'm not sure what drama I'm actually watching.
purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:53 am (UTC)
I agree, the balance isn't there! What's funny is that other drama I'm currently watching FBND is doing the balance perfectly haha. I recommend watching it if you haven't started already.
ceecile 10th-Feb-2013 03:55 am (UTC)
Of course I'm watching it! It's so good! As I've come to expect from TvN's Flower Boy series. I was actually thinking about FBND as well.
lechuza_yoya 10th-Feb-2013 05:06 am (UTC)
1) I agree, it bother me so much Seo Won is the worst
2) I think is because she is different from anything he knows, he just admitted sooner.
3) yeah.

me too, maybe it will get better

was waiting for this! OMG! ep 6 was SOOOOO GOOD! and the ending was an A+, the comedic relief came at the perfect time, b/c when kil ro saw that video of her in his office i was like OH SHIT! :X
purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:54 am (UTC)
I felt so bad for Gil Ro when he saw her in the office!! He probably feels so betrayed, and he doesn't even know the whole truth yet!! I'm hoping when he eventually finds out what she's doing, he'll forgive her because it was for the NIS... maybe? wishful thinking?

asnindie 10th-Feb-2013 03:52 am (UTC)
Lol my sis was like why is Joo Won settling for this girl? Apparently to her he's a less hotter TOP but still he resembles TOP so he's basically A+ in the looks department. I had to stop her from squeeling by shining a light on the wall.
purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:57 am (UTC)
Okay, she's right the Joo Won is hot, but... I have hard time seeing the TOP lol. The only similarity I see is their round cheeks when they smile haha.

On that note... why are people comparing all my current crushes to TOP?! First Kim Woo Bin and now Joo Won?
asnindie 10th-Feb-2013 04:56 am (UTC)
You have a certian look you like, it's bad boy meets vampire.
purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 05:12 am (UTC)
Ahaha Woo Bin totally fits that description. Come to think of it Jaejoong fits that description too :D! Flawless bad boy-vampires though... reconsidering why I like all my biases now tbh XD!
b1gay4 10th-Feb-2013 06:59 pm (UTC)
bc TOP aka the orginal flava flav of korean pop culture aka he makes 9/10 ppls panties drop
muhnaplusmuhna 10th-Feb-2013 03:59 am (UTC)
Each man is fine, but I take great offense to her downgrading Joo Won. I get everyone has their own tastes....still GURL RECOGNIZE AND APPRECIATE JOO WONNIE'S FINESSSSSSS

lol a message for your sister :)
muhnaplusmuhna 10th-Feb-2013 03:56 am (UTC)
The plot holes are insane and the characterizations off, but I can't stop. I will always watch Joo Won especially when he plays an idiot

purekpopology 10th-Feb-2013 03:59 am (UTC)
His pouting and pretty much every expression make it 100% worth it.
muhnaplusmuhna 10th-Feb-2013 04:06 am (UTC)

Everything he does is so cute. Gah my heart!
b1gay4 10th-Feb-2013 06:57 pm (UTC)
