Couple frustration 2: JaeSe couple (Kim Jae Wook and Jin Se Yeon)

I first learned about the existence of this man, Kim Jae Wook, when he was cast in the drama “Inspiring Generation/Age of feeling.”

He was supposed to be in a love line with Jin Se Yeon’s Ok Ryeon in the drama. In fact, he was her first love, not Kim Hyun Jung’s character Shin Jung Tae. But that potentially hit and rich love line was destroyed when Jae Wook dropped out of the drama after they had a change of script writer.

Just knowing that there’ll be a new writer was already a bit of a red flag that the drama might go downhill, and it did! What’s more, they reduced Jin Se Yeon’s character, who was supposed to be as bad-ass as Gaya in terms of physical capabilities, into a woman head over heels in love with the main lead, which was frustrating most of the time. She became that lovesick puppy that was always just in the background taking care of the male lead when he gets beaten to a pulp (because surprisingly the male lead thinks he’s superman out to save the human race, or at least that’s how the writer has written him off). But I’m not saying Ok Ryeon isn’t a bad-ass. She was tough in her own ways.

Anyway, I have seen the compatibility of Jin Se Yeon and Kim Jae Wook, physically and emotionally. They had a palpable chemistry that when I heard Jae Wook dropping I felt a great loss as if I wanted to mourn his departure and their wasted love story. I felt devastated, to be exact.

Not wanting their “almost” love story be forgotten, I resorted to editing. And fan fictions. Yeah, I know. It sucks, right? Nothing is more heartbreaking than a potentially great love story being destroyed by a nut job of a director/script writer.

So, here, lemme share with you some of their short but unforgettable moments from the drama:

Part 1:

From the press conference: Jae Wook and Se Yeon looking great together. He was older but she looks mature, and honestly I prefer them together, even though this was the first time I’ve seen Jae Wook.

BTS from the drama. Just looking at their old photos makes me nostalgic. Gosh, how I hoped they could have been together!

Part 6:

They have very limited screen time together, of course, mainly due to the fact that Jae Wook left earlier than expected, so here, I’ll include their sequential photos that I snagged from all sorts of sources (e.g. dramabeans, drama recaps bloggers, etc.)

Part 7:

Screen capping! I think I have screen capped almost all scenes that they were in.

This first screen capped set, I particularly liked this because this is where Ok Ryeon first looked at Soo Ok as a person, and as a friend. She saw his pain and loneliness, which he surprisingly but delightfully revealed (because of course, even if he was the cocky, playful type, in front of her he felt at ease and was willing to reveal part of himself no one else knew about). To ease his pain, Ok Ryeon took a bowl and challenged Soo Ok on an eating contest. They will lock their foreheads together and will eat from the bowl. The one who pulls away first loses. I just loved the way Soo Ok stared at Ok Ryeon. He looked as though he was put under spell, and that faint smile at the corner of his lips was just swoon-worthy! And Ok Ryeon, I can almost tell she was getting hooked as well, LOL. When they locked foreheads, I was already screaming. They look so adorable, so well-matched. I wouldn’t mind locking foreheads with such a handsome, well-muscled guy. 😀 And that was the beginning of their “love story.” Which was sadly destroyed by the writer. SUCKS.

This is Soo Ok doing the moves on the lady. And my golly, he was so cute! He was being cheeky but Ok Ryeon was all the snobbish “taken” girl. Ahhh…….. My heart flutters for these two.

This was the most hilarious and delightful part. Soo Ok was just outside Ok Ryeon’s gate, and he looked over the low wall, signaling to Ok Ryeon to come out. His facial expressions were just priceless! He was like a teenage boy gushing at his crush. Oh, well, she was indeed his crush.

Part 8: 

Because I’m such a fan of them, I decided to make my own edits. Not great, but who cares? LOL.
