Summary ( 12- First kiss, when ?)


  • While Cheol was kneeling on the floor, Ji ah scolded him for telling his coworkers at the housewarming party that they had their first kiss at age 5, in the kindergarten.
  • She was so embarrassed and told him to come up with something else, if he really wants to answer that question.
  • However, Cheol, confused, asks why he has to do that ? Since it would not have looked good, if they both admitted that they had yet to have their first kiss.
  • Which was technically true. Since they only pretended to kiss at their wedding.
  • Ji ah realises, he was right.
  • Getting married as nursery-sweethearts looks better than a couple that haven’t had their first kiss.

Suddenly going to the movies because ?

  • Ji ah suddenly receives a video call from her parents.
  • The parents are excited to see the two of them “clinging” to each other and mentions that they are on date at a movie theatre to watch the new release “Spaghetti man”.
  • Once the call ended, Ji ah screams at Cheol to quickly dress up because they had to go to the cinema.
  • Apparently, Ji ah’s family has a thing, where the first person who watches the movie gets to spoil it.
  • Which, understandably, is annoying for anyone.
  • So they have to go watch it immediately, before it gets “spoiled”.

First kiss?

  • In the theatre, Cheol sheepishly asks Ji ah if they were on a date.
  • Ji ah screams at Cheol for the absurd thinking.
  • Technically they were though.
  • After the movie ended, Ji ah cries tears of joy  because of how good it was.
  • She looks to her side hoping that Cheol also had the same experience.
  • Cheol was actually a long-term fan of the series, so of course he enjoyed it.
  • On their way out Ji ah, lost in her thoughts, tripped and fell on Cheol, who was in front of her on the escalator.
  • Yes, you guessed it. Their lips were perfectly in alignment.
