The last picture is basically me during every OTP moment!
I LOLed so much during this moment which is something of a feat considering that I was cursing at the same time because those fools interrupted such squeal-worthy heart-to-heart between MS and SY. I was so glad that MS didn’t prolong the misunderstanding and her misconceptions about his motives any longer and told her frankly, without any excuses or pretenses that it’s not because they are allies but because he is so thankful to her after she’s done so much for him. He even tells her that despite his desire to help her, he keeps hurting her and you can see that his honesty really reaches SY’s heart. It’s this youthful, untainted honesty of his which is probably his greatest weapon - be it in the corporate battles or his future quest to win SY’s heart because right now, he is at a disadvantage against JW since SY has a crush on him and JW knows how to make use of it.
Currently, it really seems that MS is the proverbial second lead who makes(almost) every girl suffer from the SLS (Second Lead Syndrome) and plays the Daddy Long Legs - saving and helping the girl every day, getting bitten, buying popcorn for her, charming her mother - while she is blindly in love with the rich, cold and tortured main lead. One of the rules in The Kdramas for Dummies is that Daddies Long Legs NEVER, I repeat NEVER, get the girl! Considering the fact that MS often refers to things he’s seen in dramas he should be aware of this cosmic irony of Kdrama Universe and judging from the preview and his swoonworthy statement:”Stop crying over meaningless men. Come to me,” he has probably realised a change of plans was desperately needed unless he wants to watch SY and JW kissing in the sunset at the end of episode 16 (for which I’ll be eternally grateful to him).
Another reason why I love SY with MS so much is because he makes her smile - not those coy, shy, polite or embarrased smiles she does when she is with JW, but real smiles which makes her brighten and shine so much and this girl needs someone to make her shine desperately.
In the end, who could blame SY for agreeing to MS’s offer when her new boss is so sweetly persuasive and enthusiastic. I mean when MS turns another time and points at her and tells her to think about it . Awwww!
By the way, have you noticed how close their feet are here?
