I’m super loving EVERYTHING about Alice, even if it’s a story about a mother/son duo kick-assing everything back to the way it is and saving humanity from wonky time-travel shenanigans. Kim Hee Sun and Joo Won are the oddest yet totally believable mother/son leads of Alice, trust me it makes sense when you watch it but I can see why the production didn’t want to tip their hat that their big name leads won’t have a love line. And please don’t suddenly make her 2020 character a doppleganger and not the real mother either because also ewwww maybe falling for a woman who looks just like his mother. Anyhoo, back to the adorable perfection that is Joo Won with second female lead Lee Da In, two episodes in and their banter is so charming, and it’s banter and not bicker because he doesn’t bicker, even getting words out of him is hard hahaha. I’ve never seen Lee Da In onscreen before but she’s got such endearing presence and her chemistry with Joo Won is such slow burn despite their years growing up together from high school on. He also lurves her in the limited way he knows how and it’ll be interesting to see how it grows once both of them start getting into the mystery and conspiracy.
