Let’s talk about prologue stories, books, soul touching lines, beautiful areas of Seoul and picturesque spaces ✨
I have to say that I loved the stories that formed the base of that episode and the names of each episodes.
The things that stayed with me:
After the Curse Is Broken: Kyung Woo Yeon kisses Lee Soo and says that she broke the curse. It’s taken from all the fairytales where prince kisses the princess to break to the curse. Here however it meant that when she kisses him she will be free from her curse. Her curse? She is unable to love anyone since she fell for him 10 years ago.
Attitude Towards What We Love Too Much: Lee Su’s father had once told him that we should keep things and people we love away from us to protect them. Lee Su finally realises that his father was wrong.
Pinocchio’s Nose Pushes People Away: Why would only his nose grow when he lied? Maybe that was a way of showing the distance that is created horizontally between two people when one of them lies.
The Reason for Walking Away: Why did fox say that the grapes are sour. Because he tried hard and he couldn’t jump any longer. He needed a way to walk away and protect himself from dying.

At the age of 18 Kyung Woo Yeon falls for Lee Su.
Lee Su friendzones her and goes to the US.
7 years later, she is till into him and asks him out. He rejects the proposal and tells her they are FRIENDS.
In between, she has tried dating but she never felt that spark for anyone.
She keeps drunk calling Lee Su’s number not knowing that he has changed his phone.
10 years later she happens to meet him again.
Since he still doesn’t reciprocate her feelings.
Meanwhile she meets another guy who treats her nicely and THAT is when Su decides that he actually likes her.
Anyway, this love story can be labelled as toxic and not very healthy but it has its sweet moments too.
Apart from the lead couple there are two more couples and both their stories get enough screentime.
What I loved about this series was the way the story is told, the analogies, the art and books and most importantly the areas of Seoul they cover and the way they build a story around them for their photo book.
You are not bored, you are just lonely. If you ignore it, it will grow out of control.
Race, sex, religion, parents, job, spouse, et cetera. Among the factors that affect your life, the only ones you can choose are your job and spouse. Would not it be too miserable if you cannot choose those either?
You seem to have some stupid belief that everything will be peaceful if you suffer a little by yourself. Stop that, it is bad for you. If you do not care about yourself, why will anyone else?
Young-hee: I’ll be much heavier than what you think.
Hyun-jae: I’Il be much stronger than what you think.
Does your destiny carry an ID saying he’s your destiny? If I make him mine, he’s my destiny.
Lean on me as a friend again. Or if not, consider me a chair, a rock or a tree. Anything you can lean on.
Consider me something like that.
