When an actor/actress really connects with me in a certain character, even if I’m happily watching them in future projects in different roles, they will always live inside my heart in the role they won me over with. For Lee Min Jung and Gong Yoo, both of whom have always been cute to watch onscreen but not much else, Big magnified my love for him in the roles of Da Ran and Kyung Jae (Kyung Joon in Yoon Jae’s body). While on their own, neither Kyung Joon nor Da Ran is all that interesting or even memorable, but together they were my own personal perfection. I still can’t explain why I love them so, only that I really do and its a feeling that won’t change even knowing the drama could have been so much better. If I had to hazard a guess, its probably because their love story was so unexpected, so impossible, so hard won, and ultimately so satisfying to know they grew up together during the shared experience and had the guts to choose each other (even if we didn’t see all the details). Lucky for me, the two of them continue to pair up together for clothing brand Mind Bridge, and their just released official pictures from the Fall 2012 campaign should be titled “Grown Up Kyung Joon and Da Ran are Finally Together, Hurray!”
