We start off with Jungmin intently watching the ending of Love Actually. (I’m glad Hugh Grant’s ability to comfort girls is apparently an international power.) The next day, she’s yawning at work and admits to Jieun that she stayed up late watching romantic comedies.
“Watching one rom-com just makes me want to watch more,” she says.
“Not me,” says Jieun. “They’re all the same.”
“But that’s the power! Principle One: the heroine absolutely cannot be beautiful. In fact, you could even call her ordinary. However, the male lead still finds many good qualities in her; even things that you could love. Just like me!” (Lol, thanks for boiling down rom-coms into the “ordinary female’s” desire to be loved. Well… I guess it’s not that off.)
She goes on to list a few more principles, all the while looking like every fangirl ever when caught in the midst of fangurling.
And, here’s Jieun, looking like every poor bystander who has ever had to sit through a round of fangurling.
