So the preview yesterday for May Queen episode 14 led me to expect a steamy rain kiss for my preferred drama OTP, Hae Joo and her oppa boyfriend of 15 years Chang Hee, who sadly has a homicidal daddy that killed Hae Joo’s adopted father and watched Hae Joo’s birth father get offed as well. See, I totally know my OTP has an uphill road to climb, made all the more steep with the drama synopsis that showed Chang Hee and Hae Joo breaking up. In truth all I wanted was to cling on to a sliver of hope for a grand reversal, and maybe enjoy some skinship and sweet moments before the cruel drama fates tore my babies apart. And then episode 14 happen. One word – WOW. Let me just say that for the last three hours I have been reading hilariously angry, despondent, and disbelieving posts on DC and Baidu from the fans of Kim Jae Won, half of whom are quitting this drama and the other half are threatening to. I don’t blame them, because I have no clue how the writer aims to have Hae Joo move on to Kang San with only 18 episodes left of May Queen’s 32-episode run. Let me put it this way, my OTP not only got some steamy rain kissing, my ship actually set sailed tonight. There be boating, people! It wasn’t shown, but it definitely happened, and can I please be allowed to enjoy it while it lasts. Sorry to the SanJoo shippers, but today belongs to my ChangJoo ship. Forget the first kiss rule in K-dramas, the even more immutable one is the first boating rule.
