Personal Taste

The Story: Jeon Jin Ho is a straight guy who pretends to be gay in order to become Park Kae In’s roommate. His hobbies include organization and ironing, and he’s known for his stoic poker face. He’s a stickler for cleanliness, but he also has a talent for figuring out a women’s feelings. Kae In is very trusting even though she has a habit of being betrayed. However that doesn’t stop her from giving people the benefit of doubt and Jin Ho is no different. How will Kae In react when she finds out that her gay roommate is not actually gay at all and that he has fallen for her?

My thoughts: I totally fell in love with Lee Min Ho and Son Ye Jin’s characters here, I believe that if their parts went to someone else, they might not have done them justice as these two did. They had facial expressions like you wouldn’t believe! I especially love how their characters journeyed individually and collectively – how much they’ve grown really struck me as very human. Lee Min Ho definitely stepped up his game as an actor and it was definitely worth waiting for.

It’s become a favourite and I’m not sure how I would include them in my previous ranking though, I might just come out with a second edition instead. I definitely recommend it to my friends, especially my best friend who isn’t as K-drama obsessed as me.
