[Pinocchio] THE FIRST JONGSUK/SHINHYE KISS


Shinsegae Department Store
63 Sogong-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul
(서울 중구 소공로 63)

I SWEAR THE JONGSUK/SHINHYE TANDEM IS NO JOKE

After eating udon, Choi Dalpo (Lee Jongsuk) and Choi Inha (Park Shinhye) were walking along this particular street, talking about their feelings. But you know what made this place more special? It is where the two main characters had their first kiss!

This is in Shinsegae Department Store in Chungmu-ro. The mall is basically one of the biggest malls in Korea and has been a favorite shopping place of many Korean artists.
It features a lot of designer brands including Louis Vuitton, which is basically how I knew about the location. HAHAHA

Here's how it looks like from the main road:



Anyway, forget the location.
LET'S TALK ABOUT THE DRAMA. AND THE KISS.

I love Jongsuk. I love Shinhye.
And when it was announced that they're going to be in a Korean drama together, I kinda forget how to breathe (exaggerated, sorry) because this is like a dream tandem to me. To have two amazing actors blessed with overflowing aegyo and talent in one production is like a God-given blessing to drama fans.

And you know what was the first thing that came to my mind?
The kiss.
Jongsuk is undeniably one of the greatest kissers among all Korean actors today.
And well, Shinhye - IN MY HONEST OPINION - is not performing well in that department.
That's why I wanted the man to demonstrate the woman the art of kissing perfectly.
And on Episode 8, it happened.

Believe me, I was screaming literally when the scene happened.
The kiss wasn't forced. It wasn't rushed. It was perfect.
Heck, it didn't even look like they were acting.
I've seen Shinhye kiss a lot of guys before but this is really the first time I've seen her in such a dazed state. HAHAHAHA.
Jongsuk, YOU DID A GOOD JOB!!!!!
PINOCCHIO IS JJANG!

So yeah, that's basically my whole thoughts while I was watching the drama.
Finding this filming location kinda gave me a headache though.
So yeah, if you wish to reenact the scene with your partner, feel free to do so.
Just don't do it in broad daylight. LOL. Koreans aren't really comfortable with PDA. :p

Need help with the directions? Drop me a comment. :)
