For a trained actor, is acting like riding a bike and one never forgets how? In the case of Lee Dong Gun, I’ve said before that a five year hiatus is akin to starting over with a new generation of fans, but he’s got the ability and the charisma to melt those years away and make it like he never left. He acts effortlessly and that translates onscreen, with a confidence and precision that is undeniably comforting to see in a leading man. The latest stills from Marry Him if You Dare share his Kim Shin playing basketball with Yoon Eun Hye‘s Na Mi Rae. A glimpse of this scene was shown in the video preview for episode 5, and in that snippet Shin tells Mi Rae that he might not be around for much longer. The spoiler is that Miranda sends Shin away to the countryside for some reporting to learn some humility. Shin might be arrogant, but he’s principled and thoughtful unlike Miranda’s mercurial method of running YBS network. I love that Mi Rae and Shin are always doing something I find interesting, and in the process learning more about each other. I don’t think Shin started getting interested in Mi Rae because of the first dream he had of her, his interest was much earlier when he opened the door for her to stay on writing for the show by asking for her opinion during the production meeting. His impression of her was being reassessed after she stood her ground against him when he accused her of scheming around him. Future Mi Rae is so wrong in thinking she can alter destiny, even if she could prevent certain occurrences from happening, she can’t control what makes two people attracted to each other. You can see that in Yoo Kyung and Se Joo as well, the way his initial poor impression of her could easily be altered by spending some time together and learning more about her. In addition to the cute basketball date stills of the OTP, below are new scenes showing Shin and Mi Rae’s oppa having a contentious discussion about the future of the Morning Show, as well as the sunglasses wearing future cop guy who has traveled to 2013 to nab the wayward future Mi Rae. I hope he drags her ass kicking and screaming back to the future.
