Mischievous Kiss Eps 3-4

So this is it…

It’s now full on LOVE for me for this series…

The chemistry decided to show itself so much in these past two episodes and may i say in FULL FORCE and judging from previews, i think the ride would only get better as this series progress…

Oddly enough, i find Episode 3 really touching and so sweet but not in a giddy, spazz inducing kind of way (although there’s that too…) but mostly in the kind where it warms my heart and makes me melt…

I know i’ve raved enough about LOVING the TW version of Itazura Na Kiss to bits and pieces but i like the attack that the writer and PD of the Korean version has done to a classic…

I am seeing the whole story of Itazura Na Kiss with fresh eyes in Playful Kiss like i have not seen it before and i like how the story in the Korean version now seems less out of a comic but more grounded in reality…

Hyun Joong’s hotness aside, I love how he’s giving me a new perspective regarding Naoki’s character… Seung Jo seems to be a tad bit meaner and yet he’s also so much nicer than his counterparts…

I loved every scene there was in these episodes… from the Physical activity challenge, to the small moment that Seung Jo and Ha Ni shared in the terrace up to the time when Ha Ni was bothering Seung Jo for simple math equations…

Every little scene and every little bit of moment that Seung Jo and Ha Ni shared in these past episodes no matter how trivial those moments are seem to hint of the deep love that Ha Ni has nurtured for Seung Jo all these years and every nuance that Seung Jo seem to give out towards Ha Ni makes me see how he’s getting to be more human like than his android like self because of her influence…

The little hints of jealousy he shows towards her totally rocks my boat and yet i also love it when he teases her mercilessly just like a schoolkid tugging at the ponytails of a girl that he’s totally crushing on…

I love all the side characters in the story as well… Ha Ni’s friends are just like my real friends and they are so supportive of her Love for Seung Jo that i can’t help but like them… Joon Gu on the other hand, despite his cheesiness and over the top reactions makes me go “awwww” with the sincerity of his concern and affection for Ha Ni… But as always, Mom really takes the cake and i can’t help but wish that all Kdrama moms would be like her…I like Zhi Shu’s brother a lot in ISWAK but i think Eun Jo is just the cutest just for being such a Mini-me of Seung Jo…

I think i must have rewounded these past two episodes too many times over because i find myself just smiling like a loony at the scenes that transpired in the span of two hours…

I found myself laughing at some scenes (Ha Ni in a mascot costume poking Seung Jo’s butt, Seung Jo quoting Ha Ni’s letter word for word when she was drunk and that whole scene when that scooter blew up in Joon Gu’s face and he was shown arriving at the camping site…), teary eyed at some … (Ha Ni getting a flashback of the way that she looks at Seung Jo from afar eversince she started liking him, the conversation that they shared in the terrace about how happy she was that Seung Jo’s mom is there for her and the conversation that Ha Ni shared with her father after she almost drowned…), cringing at unexpected moments (Ha Ni making a fool out of herself while drunk, The whole “socks” fiasco) but most of all there were just too many adorable scenes to mention…(Seung Jo pinching Ha Ni’s cheeks, the way he called her “cute”, the tantrums Seung Jo throws when he’s jealous and the way that Ha Ni’s presence is creeping up on him little by little)

I also like the fact that they are not afraid to portray HS students as raging adolescents with sexual desires…(Seung Jo commenting on the size of Ha Ni’s boobs and her efforts to make up for it totally rocks plus that whole ending scene at Episode 4? DIVINE! I wish i was Ha Ni at that moment…)

As a MinSun shipper, i can’t help but wish that they had foregone BOF for this story instead so i can see Minho looking at Hyesun’s breast with unintentional but still TOTAL perviness as he checked her out and to have him pull her in his bed and hover over her like he’s going to eat her…) the way that Hyun Joong does for So Min in these past episodes…

On another note, i’ve never been as in love with Hyun Joong as this moment… HOW HOT IS HE WHEN HE’S IRRITATED? *swoons*

It’s no secret to everyone how i love me some bad boys and i swear my eyes almost rolled at the back of my head when he threw that book in Ha Ni’s direction and shouted at her after she disturbed him from his precious sleep just to ask him to solve equations for her and her friends…

GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! He definitely scored a 100 on my Hunk-o-meter right at that very moment…

Okay… okay… let me rephrase that… I must have repeated to myself how hot he was a thousand times over while watching this because Dang it! He truly is HOT!

Truly, i find it a loss to see the low ratings that this series is getting because it truly deserves more credit than what it’s getting… (However, i think it’s the loss of those people too for missing a good drama…)

I hate the fact that this series was already pre-judged based on it’s contemporaries, based on past versions, based on the production team behind it and based on Hyun Joong’s acting in BOF that makes people hate it even before they see it…

Pre-conceptions aside though, i think Playful Kiss is such a gem of a drama that deserves to be discovered and though it may not reach the status of an uber favorite series to some or even to me, i still love the fact that it still manages to entertain me BIG TIME and how given all other things aside, the story still manages to draw me in that i am now rooting for the Seung Jo- So Min couple like its nobodys business…

Wednesdays can’t come fast enough because judging from previews, Episode 5 would be such a charmer and i can’t wait till i can feast my senses on those next two episodes once again…
