First things first. If you don't know about this, you should.
Such a gorgeously shot and smoldering tango scene has never been witnessed in a drama.
Secondly, Kim Sun Ah and Lee Dong Wook. Kim Sun Ah was already pretty much my favorite Korean actress, but this drama made me fall madly in love with Dong Wook. This love was only deepened by Wild Romance and The Recipe, btw. Both are great actors, and their chemistry was incredible. Crackling, I tell you, crackling!
I love that Kim Sun Ah makes all her characters unique. Sure, they may have some characteristics that are somewhat common in dramaland, but she always puts a spin on things to make them stand out. Also, each character is quirky, but always in a different way, making each memorable and unique.
Wookie also took a character that could have been simple and formulaic and made him a richly drawn individual of great depth of personality. And he does it with subtlety and style. He floors me.
Okay, on to more pictures. I love this most fabulous polka-dot dress
This whole scene, but mostly their black mouths
The other Miss Lee
Ramses (and his wig)
Really, I love any tango scene, but they seriously smolder here.
And it's not a broken type smolder, either.
after realizing his sulky reply may have just lost him a chance at Yeon Jae's company.
The best/only way to collapse a tent
Adorable bike rides (complete with imminent doom of crashing because you can't see where you're going)
No explanation necessary
So sweet and loving, even through their differences
And especially this relationship
Personally, I have a stone cold heart, and generally hate movies/books/dramas that make me cry. But even I got a little teary watching this drama, and I loved it. Sad tears, happy tears, tears of laughter, I experienced them all. This drama is to me a great example of how dramas should be—full of humor, drama, heart, and beautiful people. Oh wait, I meant to say tangoes. Or great acting. Or something of substance. Like a good moral. In the end, it's a story about learning to live, no matter your circumstances.
One last thing to love.
