Man, it’s like the screenwriter drilled into my head and then created THE perfect sageuk youth romance for me, including the most perfect sageuk lead couple casting since Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. Mon-Tues KBS drama The Tale of Nokdu has Jang Dong Yoon and Kim So Hyun with their own special brand of sizzling chemistry and thank god she’s 20 years old in real life so I don’t have to watch some fake kissing onscreen. These two go at it twice in this episode and she’s as much in control as he is, goodness I love to see my female lead not be shy about showing her feelings. There’s more daddy and now even mommy issues in this episode but also so much OTP cuteness it lightens up the seriousness and creates the perfect hour of entertainment. Also – Nokdu is so handsome in his warrior magistrate uniform, I’m surprised Dong Joo kept her hands off him for that long.
