There can not be enough OMG!! Where did that madskill come from Chunnie?!?! for every little thing he did that end scene kiss alone.
But I’ll forever cherish this ep as the first romantic ‘date’ of OTP. * drowning in happy tears~* I love it’s not overtly thought out by the characters, we get little nuggets of sweet surprises every step of the way just like our darlings are experiencing along. I keep comparing it to the SamSoon/SamShik fanservice ep14 date. I was not too amused tbh with Samsoon armed with ample planning and checklist of embarrassing PDAs. Watching Samshik suffering through it even if willing and deserving the abuse, I cringed. And I’m a rabid Soon-Shik shipper. Our RP achy hearts poor things are in no position to lay plans, but as the delightful night progresses it’s clear they naturally enjoy each other’s company, very aware of the other’s every twitch even if we r owed one fessing up of love declaration at that pt. I love they so easily ease back to their own rhythm of cute bickering, lovers tiny quarrels and unconscious earnest loveydoveys. After all the angst they stay true to themselves. I’m surprised it’s so packed full of OTP numminess. I can’t think of a more successful impromptu star-crossed first date.
One should never underestimate our Princey in the cooing ParkHa department, for what he is lacking in our 2012 commoner’s sensibilities, plus never the brainiac, his has Game, specifically when it concerns anything ParkHa (chant: OTP! OTP! OTP!). I need a play by play of Princey slamdunking in the romance dept:
Night is started off with a warm fuzzy family dinner with the ducklings. Ducklings = insanely ADORBS, debilitatingly charming with their funnies, perfect icebreakers. Princey sacrifices his own chicken leg, gives it to Chisan, token of a hyung’s TLC. Hyung, not HisRoyalHaughtiness. What leaps and bounds have our Princey matured?! Now u’ve forgotten to mope, have you ParkHa? 😉
Obvious with the lingering smitten stares at ParkHa whenever she is adorable, chuckling, eating, slurping, breathing…etcetcetc. PYC, you wicked talented beast, your eyes r telling me you’ll break out singing some BrunoMars, When you smile smile smile~~. the whole world stops and stares for a while~~~ or in Chunglish, *1, 2, 3* ParkHa-yaa~~ all the dreams and hopes made of your eyes~~~’
Dumps the quacking ducklings and inserts himself within an inch of ParkHa, (opposite of bros over….). *gahhh ParkHa has always been mamaduck of the Rooftop fam, but Princey is all of a sudden papaduck to her mamaduck watching their 3 precious babies have some fun flapping their wings off like proud loving parents (who want some alone smexy time!)*
Shields ParkHa from any possible bodily or mental harm, esp from those mother hens. I love wristgrabs out of soooo much concern. I call it lurve. And DetailDetailDetail: it’s not the uncomfy, usu hurting wristgrab, but a less painful, more possessive ARMgrab. It kills me his large hand can cover half her arm in one scoop.
Gets smarter by the second with a romantic stroll up a slope this beautiful night, overlooking the lights and city. Princey mans up to his past booboos, excuses himself for all the inconveniences he must’ve caused his ParkHa, apologizes earnestly while still maintaining his ParkHaSmartassery. Honest, open talk between the couple, meaning every kind considerate word spoken this opportune moment. Do anything, like a cute white lie about Grandma still dangerously roaming, to make time…all in all a fine start of Operation Time w/ ParkHa (acronym O.T.P.). One of the few charms of our Princey, and ParkHa totally sees it, is he never sets out to be conniving and intentionally lies to his ParkHa, he’s always been forefront with letting her know all the truths and his intentions, and he needs all their issues aired out and discussed right away. He’s not good with any stewing. Even when he’s saying that stabbity to ParkHa and our hearts: ‘Don’t like me!’ Who’s to say it’s not absolutely understandable an honest, albeit harsh reality?
Synchronized CP walkin while mindmeshing, flashbacking all their swoony moments. An eye-romancing glance says more than words.
Appetites worked up, time for another round of food and drinks, ie more sweet bickering couple time. ParkHa makes him a sojuCoke tailored for his sweettooth, sugarhighbooze FTW! Prince is back to his usual hot, bothered and snotty as normal, and spilling out past noble panda deed. He throws in a chunface <333! It’s always wise to plant visual aids on ParkHa exactly what she’s already fallen for.
Like clockwork he manages to weave in a compliment on how pretty ParkHa is to his eyes during her makeover *coughallthetimecough*, fishing for one fr her and she teases he looks half a fingertip handsome after the haircut (ie, you’ve always look finnnee +/- a fingertip, red ahjusshi!). Never passing up a chance to shower himself some praises, he nudges in a confident claim on his own undeniable good looks, no truer words.
All good things has to selfcombust when SeNa is standing right at the gateway to our hell as Fluffy the 3headed dog in a miniskirt at the frontdoor of Rooftop complex. Princey is hurried off on some fiance/operation back to Joseon duty, his top priority, momentarily forgotten during last night’s O. T. P. . He never lets a moment be not known SeNa <<<<<< ParkHa. Out of sight, not out of mind; in plain view, ermm, what’s your face?! Clearly SeNa and ParkHa know. Aigoo! S, your (never yours to begin with!) dreamboat is sinking faster than Titanic. Feels GOOOOOD though fr my vantage point!
And we’re not even near the part 6002 knocks my socks off.
There goes no 6002 post where I don’t marvel his always improving acting chops a little or a whole lot, but this is the ep he’s earned himself fair and square he’s worthy of the awards. Baeksang? I’ll call dibs just re-gift him all the awards he’s been owning last 2 years.
To quote a lovely Cassie @苦瓜蜡笔小西：Love is not finding someone to live with. It’s finding someone you can’t live without. You’re back to the same fancy castle with no ParkHa curled up like a sad lost kitten at the door. And it’s no longer your inviting home sweet home (away fr home)
I’m a horrible sucker for grabbity kiss. *sigh* blame Samshik. RP is equal opportunity endorser.
My melted gooey puddle in my chest, how dare you be so perfect, OTP?! Is it human to synchronize a single tear on matching side of cheek?!?!? You tear pretty, I tear pretty a la JackRose’ You jump, I jump? Chunnie, here the award for most beautiful single teardrop. In those couple seconds, You grab your girl, dead setting ur gaze on her eyes/lips, you sizzlingly carve holes in her with your possessive stare, and you land a tender kiss on her lips WHILE dropping us that gorgeous heartbreaking tear. What ARE you? Miss HJM, I hope u have been wheezing for all the air your lungs are depleted of since, if they have not already collapsed. I have no hope you’ll recover from the swooning. Yeah, and just gloat and keep taking chummy smiley flowery bts pics with 6002 to rub it in. *RAWRRRR*
6002, your most precious Cassies caught you mouthing your lips when it’s so not absolutely necessary in a fluffy Kdrama. Rem how your hyung Rain did it that mother of all kiss in Full House?! The cameras swirl, u place your lips precisely where hers are and FREEZE like 2 blocks of pretty wood so fangirls can make their caps, gifs, fanarts and keep their calm and carry on. tsktsktsktsktsk. OTOH, what are we supposed to do again? Oh, rem to breathe. Ok. I’m trying. It’s hard.
