1. I honestly do not get why the King of all of Joseon, who has plenty of advisors and loyal officers decides to use 4 college students to help him locate the all-important document that will change the course of history. I mean - bwah? Yes, even if the document is on premises of the University, how about using his pet advisor/prof? Seriously, he needs to use hormonal kids? I do not get. I also find it pretty off-putting that he desires to use Sun Joon when he knows this will force SJ to go against his own father. Ugh.

2. I don't understand complaints about Sun Joon not being angry on finding out Yoon Hee is a girl, especially when they use Han Kyul's reaction in Coffee Prince as their justification. Leaving aside the not-insignificant difference that HK is an impulsive drama queen and Sun Joon is a very reserved, reasoning, measured person, the situations are entirely different. For one thing, Sun Joon is the one who dragged Yoon Hee into the situation which forces her to hide her gender all the time. Let me make it even clearer - if YH reveals her gender, she and her whole family gets beheaded. Han Kyul did not unintentionally put YEH's character in that situation - this is the modern world and the most that could happen to her is she'd lose her job and she can find another (and in any event, HK wasn't responsible). Also, and this is a huge difference - they start dating and YEH still does not reveal her gender - HK finds from someone else. Sun Joon and Yoon Hee are not dating and she was actually going to tell him the truth as soon as he confessed his feelings (and he didn't find from others about her gender, either). Not to mention relief of 18th century nobleman about him not being gay thus being allowed to have a normal life and nor harm object of his affection either is huge compared to someone dealing with issues through 20th century prism. Anyway, short version. It all made sense to me.

Just an FYI: I am currently watching Chinese Paladin 3, Daemul, Gloria, Giant, SKKS, Joseon X-Files, Soulmate, Nagareboshi, Guilty, That Love Comes, Shanghai Bund. So those are ones I am going t blabbing about.

I have just finished ep 1 of quirky Korean 12-ep drama Soulmate and it's total total love.



It's souffle-light, witty, adult (kdrama characters discuss and even casually have sex, is the world ending?) and just pitch-perfect. It's modern/cynical and very romantic at the same time.



The story follows 6 people, 3 couples, and their intersecting lives. There are Su Gyung and Phillip. She has just received a proposal from him, her boyfriend of 5 years, and instead of elation, she is thrown into a panic. She may insist it's because of the ugly ring or the fact that he proposed on the subway but what she can't admit it's because of him and the fact that in that 5-year interval love had left.



There are Dong Wook and Yu Jin - he is an inveterate playboy going for a match-making session and she is his arranged date - upper-class, naive, and adorable. It may not be love on his part but they are compatible and she is nice, so why not give the relationship a chance. He doesn't believe in love anyway.



And then there is Yu Jin's roommate, predatory and man-chasing - her newest conquest is model Ryohei but that was too easy and therefore too boring - why not try to get the newly engaged Phillip instead?



These six people intersect, interact, fall in love. And throughout this drama is a theme - does your soulmate exist? And would you know it if you passed them on the street? Or saw them in your dreams?



I am madly in love after the first ep. I don't even care if the OTP (for the record, it's Su Gyung and Dong Wook) ever meet - it's much too fun to watch everyone's interactions.



I am in love.
