I know V-day hasn’t arrived yet, but happy things can be shared early, no? Last night I went to sleep with a mile-wide grin on my face. Why? Because I am finally re-watching Playful Kiss for the first time since it concluded (and since I wrote my final recap for episode 7 of the Youtube edition). In the intervening months, I’ve watch many more dramas, and left PK in a safe warm place in my heart. To be honest, I was worried that re-watching it would make me lose some of my love for it.
I was thrilled to discover that, quite the contrary, I am loving every minute of my re-watch so far. It took just one conversation between cold, mean, and arrogant Baek Seung Jo, and heart-on-her-sleeve, underachieving Oh Ha Ni, for me to rekindle my burning love for this couple. With that in mind, bringing a picture retrospective of all the couple’s outfits that our darling kids wore throughout the drama and the YT episodes. The wardrobe coordinator really deserves a big hug and some high fives.
What I love about their couple’s outfits is that (1) its always age-appropriate, (2) some are identical and other are complementary, and (3) both Jung So Min and Kim Hyun Joong individually look wonderful wearing it, and even more so when standing next to each other. Oh gosh, I miss these two cutie pies so much! Starting with them wearing their casual school uniforms above, let’s go on a trip down memory lane with Seung Jo and Ha Ni!

To Seung Jo and Ha Ni – thank you for sharing such a delightful love story with us. Re-watching PK just reminded me how hard it is to let you two go. Wishing a Happy Valentine’s Day for a drama couple that felt as real as anything I’ve ever seen onscreen.
