Scroll to bottom for previous ratings…

Not as concerned about the ratings anymore since the drama is so well done, so I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves. The Hong Sisters and the PD have made me forget all my initial worries about a silly, over-the-top, unrealistic drama script and have totally won me over since episode 1!  And even before that, the mix of stylish-glossy and quirky-cute promotion posters and photo stills of SeungGi and MinAh were a good sign of good things to come! But even with a compelling script, the chemistry and believeability of the main couple just totally wins me over in each episode; hence, why I’m so completely addicted to this drama.

Just can’t get enough of DaeWoong-MiHo!  Agh, they are just so freaking cute, I just want to reach out and “ahng” take a bite!  Kudos to the production team for choosing not to skimp on the “skinship” and allow the two leads to act as any other real couple/friends would.  I love kdramas, but as a Korean-American, the awkward and unrealistic way they usually like to portray the main couple often makes me cringe!

Ok, as this is an LSG fan blog, some highlights through the eyes of Woong-ah~

DW comes to his senses after experiencing the foxrain and redeems himself by going back to fetch MH from the boat, and thankfully just in time to rescue her from her crazy blue fox eyes freaking out people!  The entire scene was hilarious (and so sweet!) from DW thinking the dog’s tail was a fox-transformed MH to him eventually resucing her by  covering up her head to shield her eyes from other people…

The Hong Sisters’ ability to make a scene so laugh out loud funny and at the same time so incredibly sweet and touching is pretty amazing.  Having only been a fan of their drama My Girl, I couldn’t really understand the hype… I get it now!  Seeing DW and MH wrapped up in each others arms trying to escape away was so hilarious and so romantic at the same time!  And loved how MH keeps on insisting that she has to hug DW in order to gain strength from the magic bead…

As a SeungGi fan, just can’t get enough of all the what looks to be insider “wink winks.”  In earlier episodes, we saw DW at the makeup counter remarking how he’d be able to secure a cosmetics CF once he makes it as a star (see SeungGi’s The Saem CF).  MH constantly killing mosquitos while DW sleeps (SeungGi’s mosquito obsession from 1 Night 2 Days).  And in this ep we see DW show off his saguek martial arts skills (mastered by SeungGi for his 2008 sageuek drama; he eventually pulled out due to filming conflicts with 1 Nght 2 Days).  Also, DW teaching MH how to brush her teeth (see SeungGi’s Perioe CF)

On the way home, DW shows off his action skills for MH because all girls love guys who have fighting skills!  LOL. 

And later end up encountering the Action School Teacher peeing on the wall they had just practically kicked down. So cute how DW covers up MH’s eyes…

DW decides that MH needs some basic lessons on freshening up and buys her toiletries and teaches her how to brush her teeth and use soap and lotion.  Very cute.  But I’m curious… had she not brushed her teeth or taken a shower at all up to this point?  Hasn’t it been a couple of days since they first met? 

MH just loves being clean now!  Who wouldn’t?!  She’s all giddy and DW cooks meat for her to eat while she prances around in her new clean dress that DW bought her.  Is this not the look of a guy beginning to fall in love???

But of course he ruins the happy moment by asking MH when she can take back her magic bead so that he can go on with his life!  Ugh, guys are so stupid.  Totally clueless.  This makes MH sad and she passes on eating the meat and decides to go to sleep, which of course totally surprises DW…

The next morning, DW leaves for his audition and MH decides to stay at home so as not to bother him.  He shows a lot of concern about leaving her alone.  Another sign that you’re falling for her DW!  And then as he’s walking down the road, he looks up to her on the rooftop and starts to wave happily, only to stop himself, because he’s thinking what’s gotten into him! 

DW, another sign that you’re falling for her.  When you’re lying to your supposed first love about why you can’t have dinner with her…

And the ultimate sign you’re falling for the girl, when small things like a can of soda make you think of her!

But looks like he messes up again because at the end of the episode, he pleads with Miho to just disappear from his sight.  Sure, he was drunk and he obviously regrets it the next morning, but how is that you redeem yourself by going back to fetch Miho only to screw up again by sending her away?! Woong-ah, looking forward to seeing you redeem yourself again next week!
