Episode 11 Thoughts
I’m on a whirlwind of emotion after this episode because my noona crush with Hyung Sik is turning to a noona romance. His stolen gazes as well as the lingering gazes… man I just end up melting like an ice cream. One thing though that I really want to be over by now will be scenes that will involve the thug because I feel like there’s no humor, even the slapstick kind to exhaust from them anymore. Dear show, why reveal to Gook Doo about his cheating girlfriend and friend and break his heart all at the same day?
We are heading to the romance now, right? I for one, can’t wait. –jediprincess
