Right now I’m at the can’t get enough of Pinocchio stage in my drama watching. Sure the day may come that I’ll be weary of this particular OTP, such as when the story drags or the romance fizzles out, but for now it can do no wrong for me and the same goes for leads Lee Jong Seok and Park Shin Hye. This drama has hit a home run in all-around casting of all the characters, from the major to the supporting, and like all stories the leads do take up the bulk of the screentime so they need to go above and beyond.
Dal Po and In Ha deliver the above and beyond for me, whether individually with their own career and personal growth arcs, and definitely together when plumbing the first love turned adult real romance landmine. Throw in the fauxcest and this romance has all the hallmarks of my favorite K-drama kinks. SBS released new OTP stills Monday morning showing the two now sweethearts spending some alone time on the roof, their go-to place for contemplation or cheering up. They radiate warmth through the chilly weather, that’s for sure!
The drama also released a series of BTS shots of the two leads filming all the scenes we’ve recently watched in the drama, from the hospital scene to the hallway hug to the snowy kiss. Their chemistry is best described as honest and comfortable, lacking the sexual tension but suffused with genuine affection working together. I couldn’t be happier with what they are delivering once the cameras roll, the tenderness of love with neither can stop, as well as their ease behind the scenes showing how much they enjoy filming with each other.
