The first moment they laid eyes on each other was inside the MBC waiting room. She was nervous and shy just as he was but braved the moment. There was no escaping the task. They were soon to be a married couple in We Got Married. Make believe, yet it felt so real.
This is what I saw when I decided to marathon watch the show after watching Season 4 Ep.247. Without a doubt, the charm of these two adorable artists has got me hooked, line and sinker. Yes! How could I ignore their awkwardness towards each other that speaks volume more than skinships other couples can easily accomplish?
This is what makes this couple more real for they are not trying to be so casual and freeze their emotions in front of the camera like a good actor that he is and someone who is very familiar with the camera and how to be coy like how she must have known. This is a unfamiliar setting for both of them. No NG's, no script or if there was, it was not helping them to be at ease at that moment. First meeting and they had to be engaged and married on the same day.
But then, both are beautiful even the simple wedding became alive with the two of them trying to catch each others eyes in the midst of fellow artists who witnessed the cozy gathering. Words are not necessary at that time as they both tread the moment, wondering what will happen from then on. A bubbly girl full of energy opposite a quiet boy who could only smile and laugh to hide his growing shyness before this goddess. A girl who has no attitude and never fear how to be real in front of the camera. Her laughter was a surprise to him, the kind that is loud but but oh so cheerful. The kind of laughter she can only do even in front of this handsome boy. Is there any girl who can be this lovable and true as she can be?
The journey to discovering their passions and hobbies and how they compliment each other are all worth watching. Two souls that are so opposite yet they compliment each others weaknesses. I love how every episode, the wall between them are falling apart slowly but surely.
The eyes never lies. And I find it fascinating how he stare and look and stare for more as his smiles grow wider. As if there is so much interesting in her face and in her whole being that fascinates him and he can't help himself but succumb to her charisma.
Any woman can drown in his eyes but luckily, she is currently the subject that is taking his interest. An action that can not be faked because his eyes are always drawn to her face whenever, wherever.
Even in front of his close friends in the industry he could not hide his newly acquired habit of staring at her as if she was the only one there in front of him. Never mind his friends who felt uncomfortable when bickering started between them. Like old married couples they acted as if they are real.
A lot had to happen to develop the friendship between them. So many fun moments to hurdle their awkwardness and be comfortable with each other's touch. Like a gentleman, he is one of the rare kind who not only is embarrass to make the first move but I can see that he is also respecting her and not taking advantage of the opportunity given to him freely which comes with the reality show they are both in.
A man who will be every mother's dream for their daughter. Someone who can be trusted. Someone who takes care of her in a sweet way. Yes, he is stiff, cold ... but it's only an impression he gives and she is not falling for that. She discovered how warm he is and caring.
Like their first skinship, during bungee jumping. She could have opted not to jump and he said it was okay, still she took a lot of courage so as not to disappoint him. And he really eased her worries as they flew in the air together, clasped in each others bodies as they fought the anxiety and fear of the game.
Then some more cute moments that made me smile and grin like a loony. Ah, I don't care just as they don't care about the cameras rolling. I love sweet nothings, whispering now and then. They only make me giggle more.
And most of all, she has succeeded in breaking his tough exterior with her cute pleadings. But then, who can resist her when she is in the mood to do so. Her cute eyes and kitten like pout are her weapon to conquer him.
If there's no real kiss in this kind of show, I would gladly watch these moments again and again. It might not be a kiss but this is good enough to test the tension, the atmosphere, the fire between them.
Or flare up the heat with sexy dancing only she can do to tease him.
I am going to wait for this moment to be reenacted again with more sincerity. But for now, I am satisfied at where they are right now... this amazing birthday proposal in episode 26.
He is not yet ready to tell the world. But he is slowly getting there. Like how he got there through all these memorable moments that are worth replaying.
I want to see more of their journey to discovering what real love is. I want to see him leading her like what she has been doing like supporting him and giving him courage since day 1. Only then can he be brave enough to tell her what he could not yet utter loudly during his attempt in proposing at her.
When she encouraged him..."fighting!" I look forward for more surprises they have got for each other and for the viewers that came to love them both.
The journey is not yet finished.
