Sometimes the universe conspires to get you to ask… is there more to the universe? We are introduced to our main characters. Bo Nui is superstitious and for good reason. Soo Ho is not, and his reasons are good too. Tigers are rare commodities but Bo Nui manages to rope herself one anyway.
Top 10 Moments:
- We meet Bo Nui and she’s accident prone.
From our very first introduction of her, she almost trips as she’s bearing drinks to serve the patrons at the bar she’s working at (unfortunately, she misses coming face to face with our hero) and then she actually trips when she runs into a customer whilst moping the floor and falls butt first on the ground. She does pick herself up though, and continues her inner dialogue about pretty girls getting the best out of life, so much so that even a kind girl can’t beat them. She also adds though that a pretty girl can’t compare to a lucky woman. I’m guessing Bo Nui doesn’t think of herself as pretty or lucky.
2. We meet Soo Ho and he’s a maths genius playing poker
Needless to say, he cleans the house and the other players can only look at him in envy as they wonder if he’s a professional gambler or something. And then to crown it all, he leaves the chips on the table and asks the others to help themselves to it. It’s an all you can take buffet.
3. The meet cute
Although there was nothing cute about their meeting. Soo Ho gets dumped with dirty toilet water, even though I wonder why he did all that calculation of how soon the crash would occur if he was going to get hit anyway. He snubs Bo Nui’s apology and has to make his way to his meeting smelling like sewage. And yeah, the visual’s disgusting to me too.
4. Bo Nui assumes Soo Ho’s a dummy
And you can’t blame her really. Whilst she’s searching the park for the boss who stole her pay day money and is somewhere gambling it away, she runs into Soo Ho who’s trying to use an advanced multiplication table to calm himself down. She hands him a luck charm in consolation for the money she thought he lost at the Casino and goes on her way. It’s hilarious, and even more hilarious is Soo Ho’s spluttering about him being a genius to her departing back.
5. We meet Gun Wook and Seol Hee, his agent
He’s a famous tennis player and Seol Hee is focused on keeping him away from his crazy fans. He doesn’t see them as crazy and is in fact jealous of another star who had a fan wait for him naked in his apartment, with dinner on the stove. Something tells me his crazy would gel well with Bo Nui’s crazy.
6. Bo Nui wears the most ingenious work clothes ever
Speaking of crazy, Bo Nui’s at the very same hotel, which is also the place Soo Ho’s demo is taking place. His assistant Dal Nim needs her help with the presentation because Soo Ho’s employees who were with them for the demo resigned and changed the password to the demo. Bo Nui is firm in saying no until Dal Nim mentions paying her for the help. But she has something against Zeze and can only work in the bunny costume. Thank heavens she pulls it off even with the outfit choice.
7. Soo Ho faints on stage
As expected, his coworkers take off after sabotaging the demo for the presentation. Soo Ho who’s had stage fright since he was a child gets hit with all the humiliation at once when his demo ends up being erased by a holographic tiger and faints right at the conference.
8. Bo Nui and Gun Wook were first loves
I’m assuming that’s the case because Bo Nui’s spent years looking for her and Gun Wook looked positively delighted when he heard her name. The only problem was that the meet didn’t take place due to a call Bo Nui got from the hospital that had her running away before Gun Wook could make himself known. That’s the second lead move right there.
9. Bo Nui needs a man to save her sister’s life
Ever since her parents died in a car crash, her little sister has been in a coma. On the night of the accident, whilst waiting for news, she runs into a shaman who informs her of her life time of bad luck (which looks more like the people around her are the ones who have bad luck. As far as I’m seeing, her luck’s been good) and how it’s all her fault. He tells her the steps to take to save her sister. Who knew sex could literarily save a life.
10. Bo Nui finds her tiger
She spends the evening after she left the Shaman’s house drinking and wanders the street which is where she runs into Soo Ho who admits to being born in the year of the tiger after she needles him endlessly. You can practically see the wheels turning and Bo Nui shouting ‘jackpot’ in her head.
Character I wanted to bitch slap:
In this case it has to be these two. You hate your boss’s guts? The right thing to do is resign or walk away. Sabotaging the game that not only your boss worked on, but the other employees as well, is mean, petty and totally uncool.
Headache inducing moment:
I spent the time shouting at my screen so Dal Nim can just tell her boss the truth about what happened. If she’d let him know ahead of time before he went on stage that the two above had run away, he would have gone straight up and tested the demo before humiliating himself before the entire press. I hold you responsible Dal Min.
This episode’s a Cosmopolitan. It looks light and fruity but the taste’s kind of bland. Maybe it will grow on me?
