I don’t understand why the instant and steadfast attraction between Mo Yeon and Shi Jin was received with disapproval by some. I’ve stumbled upon a few comments that find it simply not relatable, but it’s not like it doesn’t happen in real life. It’s common, and the lot of us should be so lucky to experience it. (Just read up James Garner’s love story!) This accelerated development is also a refreshing—though, not unique—step away from the standard drama fare of teasing and making viewers wait until they’re frustrated.
On the one hand, even though Mo Yeon’s and Shi Jin’s feelings for each other have been established, I might be prematurely optimistic about the pace of the main loveline. Among Kim Eun Sook’s writing staples are clichés, so, I imagine Mo Yeon and Shi Jin could persist with the push-and-pull, maybe as much as Dae Young and Myeong Joo do. But I might get by with Shi Jin’s shameless flirting and eye sexing. Heehee.
Today, a new still of our lead couple has been released. Nothing romantic about it, but as an ardent enthusiast of their chemistry, it’s enough that the two are occupying the same scene. 😀
Next up this week, Shi Jin and Mo Yeon are reunited in Uruk after eight months, and in this still, they are shown pledging allegiance, with our soldier making a salute and our doctor laying her hand over her heart. They are loyal to their duties.
The fateful reunion heralds the beginning of real love [for the couple] in the midst of a disaster zone, but naturally, there will be the initial strange tension between them that I hope won’t drag on!
