Life is hard when you don’t know how to navigate the real world. Just ask our OTP (one true pairing) who must be one of the oddest couples out there when it comes to life experiences. They come from two very different sheltered backgrounds where big city living was just a pipe dream. Now they must learn to live like the rest of the world and thankfully they are super cute while doing it.
We have a new character leaching onto our OTP. Introducing Moocher Hyung who lives downstairs. Not only does he have a similar wardrobe to Louie, but he also has tons of free time (He is a professional “student”) to hang out with our amnesiac hottie.
I foresee a lot of stress in our future thanks to this guy. So far Moocher Hyung has been just slightly skeevy, but I am not sure that he will ever be a solid sidekick.
The Shopping King Rides Again
Now that Bok Sil has received her Ginseng money as well as a new higher paying job, it is time to go shopping. Something that is right up Louie’s alley. Louie hears items “talking” to him right and left and finds all the best buys in the street market.
Surprisingly, Bok Sil is not overly frugal when it comes to buying stuff. Maybe it is because she has never had the money to buy such luxuries. Or maybe Louie is starting to rub off on her. Either way, our cute duo does some serious shopping, even buying cell phones which Louie declares is essential to existence.
Can I just say how thrilled I was that the super expensive diamond encrusted underwear are back in play? Hahaha, what a wonderful way to give Louie his name back. I am also enjoying how Louie remembers really random stuff from his past life. Mostly about shopping and designer items. It causes Moocher Hyung to wonder if there is more to Louie than his current hobo amnesiac status.
Moocher Hyung even goes so far as to guess Louie’s real identity since Louie seems to have knowledge of expensive things but has never actually cooked before. Which he promptly dismisses once he sees Louie loving cheap commoner coffee. Heh.
Romance is on the Horizon
The burgeoning romance continues at a slow burn for Louie and Bok Sil as they begin to cohabitate. No huge breakthroughs but tons of cute moments that show a newly awakened awareness. Below are my favorites.
Louie’s pouting over Bok Sil wanting to be separated from him is adorable. Nothing like a chastity curtain to curtail late night snuggling.
One of my favorite scenes was in episode 1 where Louie saw Bok Sil on TV and fell head over hills for the backwoods girl in a documentary. We have part two where Louie once again goes into full enraptured mode as Bok Sil gets rid of a bug. Nothing is better than falling for a girl who can dispose of those scary spiders.
It isn’t just Louie falling into like. Bok Sil is also obviously aware of her handsome roommate. As shown by Bok Sil’s expression as Louie gets her all spiffed up for her first day at her new job. Now I suddenly have the desire to make my husband learn to do those cloth roses. Maybe he will think it is romantic if I don’t mention that I saw it done on a kdrama.
The Love Triangle Begins
Louie is not the only one noticing Bok Sil’s unique charms. Joong Won is also a tiny bit smitten by our leading lady. Why else would he hire her for a job when she literally has no qualified skills?
Louie’s Trials in Adapting
Things are not all flowers and sausages for our fish out of water hero. Adapting to a poverty lifestyle is hard.
- There are horrible bugs out there just waiting to attack.
- There are evil people in the background hoping you stay dead for their own personal gain.
- Not to mention creepy stalkers in raincoats that might have murdered the last three people living in your rooftop apartment.
- And worse of all, you are unaware of how scammers work. Poor Louie is tricked into putting all of Bok Sil’s money into a phone scammer’s account because of his lack of common sense. Not that there should be that much left after his constant internet shopping spree.
When it comes down to it, changing one’s basic lifestyle is hard, even when you don’t remember what your initial lifestyle was. But with Bok Sil by his side, I am sure Louie will get it right in the end.
This show remains super cute and fluffy. I love watching our leads figure out modern conveniences and frugality and above all I love seeing them fall in love. As long as we focus more on the OTP and less on evil CEO’s I will be a happy camper.
Til next time,
