I have literally watched the teaser for more than 300 times…and I’m just appreciating it more and more!
I guess I’ll just share my thoughts on the teaser, cuz I have nothing better to do. I’ll be just rewatching the teaser over and over again, haven’t done anything productive since the teaser was released.
We start with Lee Geon’s cute little hand playing the guitar. I didn’t include that capture, but the way his shoulder moves when the camera goes up…! Love him playing the guitar!
The camera rolls up to show Lee Geon’s INTENSE gaze. His hands and shoulders are moving to play the guitar, but not even once does he take his eyes off the girl to look at the guitar. Girl, I’m looking at you. Yes, you, you lovely creature. His eyes say so, and he even has that mega pout showing how intensely focused he is 😀 also kind of looks like he is trying to stop himself from smiling just by looking at her face. Already so much love sensed!!
And she knows it too! Mi Young feels Lee Geon’s Imma-melt-u-down gaze, and shyly moves her eyes away, but smiles. She’s a little shy with this overwhelming attention, to her who always went unnoticed this is kind of new and awkward, but she is enjoying it. She feels that to this guy in front of her, she is a special and precious being who deserves whole undivided attention, and she grew enough and became confident enough to appreciate and enjoy that attention. What did this to her? Aww, of course…love!
So this is their character dynamic. A guy true to his feelings and a girl who’s a little shy but is loving the love she gets. Of course, this is not going to be how they are like in the beginning of the drama, or even the most part of the drama. But I guess this is how they eventually will end up being like. And the text says, “Our beginning was…”
This guy, like an accident, just finds out the girl sitting there. Always quietly sitting there, unnoticed, but beautiful.

As if struck by the lightening, they are brought together. By some kind of external force, that are often called ‘fate’ in literature.
Lee Geon drags Mi Young out of her passive inertia. Probably just following his heart rather than trying to be helpful, but she looks happy and liberated.
Kudos to the actors who managed to pull off this scene which is so easy to become totally ridiculous 😛 This cheesy but cute scene shows them totally falling in for each other.
I loved this scene becuz it seemed to forecast MiYoung’s character change. Mi Young in the beginning, the low self-esteem girl who can never say no to others, can never even imagine bring any degree of harm to others, probably couldn’t aim a gun at another human being. Even if it’s a toy bubble gun. When she aims Lee Geon with her bubble gun and shoots it, she’s looking away, as if she can’t directly look into someone and shoot (soooo harmful) bubbles at him. But she still does that, because she feels confident enough that their relationship does allow this kind of prank. And she looks at Lee Geon after shooting, sees him all playful and laughing, and when he hugs her, she feels ah this is a man who loves me, I can be comfortable around him, and I deserve that love.
There they are, lying down side by side, looking at each other, and just by looking at each other’s face they burst out in laughter. You can just FEEL how happy and comfortable they are around each other. And the camera shows their house, more in comic, fairy tale way, the house they will live together and the happy family they will build together.
It’s all just my own interpretation, and I do feel like I may have overdone it a little bit considering it’s just a less-than-a-min teaser, but I can’t help it! I already love this couple! Hopefully the actual drama will meet the expectations.
