Meet cutes remain a tried and true staple of K-dramas, not necessarily building towards a successful OTP but if done right continues to deliver the first satisfying rush in the romantic set up in any K-drama. The first meeting of the star-crossed OTP in upcoming MBC sageuk Ruler: Master of the Mask shows Kim So Hyun and Yoo Seung Ho in various encounters in the bustling marketplace. There’s the quiet eye contact, the running from something dangerous, and finally the stalker-ish following behind, all perfectly acceptable behavior because it’s coming from the upstanding and super cute Crown Prince character. There’s also the first stills of second male lead L‘s character, sharing the same name as Yoo Seung Ho’s prince and likely an increasingly twisted fate as the drama progresses. Check out the latest teaser preview below as things go from meet cute to all hell breaks loose in 30 seconds.
