DO NOT READ if you don’t want us to break the surprises that come ahead.^^
In the opening scene we have a bunch of kids bullying a kid and calling him a bastard. A girl about the same age stands up for him. The kid gets courage and throws a snowball at them! That should hurt. The courage that a guy gets when girl he likes walks in! ^^The girl and the boy walk away together. Puppy Love ^^
Time rolls by…..
The Radio sings *Happy Valentine’s Day* and an alarm goes *TIK TIK TIK*(at 11 o clock!!! LOL).The alarm must belong to a room sheltering a hardcore baseball player for every inch of it spoke of baseball! (signed balls,baseball gloves ,newspaper cuttings and shiny awards)
A sleepy head of a guy wakes up with a start. He looks at the clock not believing his eyes. Yes boy! you are veryyyy late for whatever you had planned.Then there is church and roses. Does it ring a bell? Well one more hint “A beautiful bride”. Yep! A wedding! A wedding on Valentine’s day! They are one lucky couple! Then we see the sleepy head racing down the streets in black blazers and finally manages to get into a taxi. The bride,Ham Yi Seul and her friend Chae Ri have a “weddingy” chat. Then the worst happened- Mr Sleepyhead got caught in traffic! The traffic was due to a marathon competition. So our guy got off and started running(for his life). He raced ahead of the marathon runners (He has no choice…He has a “wedding” to catch..keke…).
Meanwhile Baek Ho’s(sleepyhead of course) are at their wits end waiting for him and the bride’s parents are practicing to walk down the aisle.I have always wondered why people practice for this. I mean all they have to do is “WALK DOWN THE AISLE”. How difficult can it be? And at last Baek Ho reached the church; unable to even lift his leg. Boy! You have to “Walk down the aisle”!!
Then there was the “wedding music”, the bride and the maids^^. Baek ho waiting and smiling at the bride. OMG! He is not the groom!!! He is the next best thing- “the best man”. Baek Ho has loved this girl for 20 years and did not get a single chance to propose and ends up being the best man at her wedding! This is called fate at its worst! @_@
How come no one notices how sad this guy is at the wedding? He forgets to present the ring and is almost in tears when they kiss! So the “puppy love” ended a puppy love! No wait..who am I to say that? The drama has just started and ANYTHING can happen!
Aftermath of the wedding
Ju Tae Nam, a short friend of Baek Ho (and naturally Ham Yi Seul) is seen to fancy Chae Ri,the head cheerleader “Super Girls” and he is not too subtle about it too! But like all the snobbish pretty girls she ignores and insults him. And like all the other dumb guys he doesn’t seem to care.
Baek Ho says that he feels like he is marrying off his inadequate daughter. Now, now Baek Ho we all know how you really feel! Then he has a small talk with the bride’s dad. Even the dad thought that Baek Ho was gonna marry his daughter! Baek Ho!! What the hell were you doing all these years?
Then the bride comes to talk with her best friend. These two really get along well and this girl understands him only too well. She knows that her friend’s mouth dries up when he is nervous during speech and that he needs peppermint candies for the same.
The Best man’s speech
The actual groom was the coach of the baseball team in the high school. He and Ye Seul got into a student teacher relationship. Isn’t such relationships frowned upon? Well, I guess all is fair in love and war! Baek Ho congratulates Ye Seul with heavy heart. He says that Yi Seul cared for others more than she did for herself.
*Flashback* Ye Seul keeps the puppies in the street dry by sheiding them under her own umbrella. Our Baek cares for Ye Seul more than he does for himself. He gives his umbrella to her and runs to school in rain. When Ye Seul forgets her indoors shoe, he offers his. When I was in school I used to forget my sport shoes often and no one came to my rescue.Unlucky me!
Even the coach himself was jealous of Baek Ho and never thought he would become Yi Seul’s man. Baek Ho must have been hibernating when these two dated! Hmph
When Beak Ho moves all the gifts to the couple’s car, he comes across a letter which Yi Seul wrote to him years ago; a letter which she never gave him! He secretly pockets it.
When Yi Seul throws the bouquet Baek Ho catches it and refuses to part with it.keke. Night descends. Baek Ho sits alone in a park swing and take out the letter. It was a love letter Yi Seul had written to him in nighth grade! Baek Ho couldn’t believe his bad luck and tears bursts out wishing to go back in time. Then the magic happens. A time conductor appears and offers to help him. He gives him a tonic which would take him back to the past.
Meanwhile Baek Ho’s friends gather up at their usual spot. When Chan Wook(one of Baek Ho’s friends) merely starts to say he is thirsty there was a hand in front of him with a tumbler. For one second I thought it was a ghost. But it looks like a shy girl with a crush on him.^^
At Yi Seul’s place her mom is in deep thinking. He dad notices a peppermint candy at Yi Seul’s desk and wonders if she likes them. Her mom says she hates them too like him and sighs. Her expression is worried and she asks her husband whether Yi Seul will be happy. A lady will know another lady’s heart and mom knows her child best. In this case both apply, right??
Baek Ho has a look over all his memories with Yi Seul and finds a handful of photos where she is upset. Somehow he feels responsible and wants to change them.
Baek Ho does not believe the time conductor but decides there was no harm in trying.He drinks the tonic and Yi Seul appears in front of him. She is gonna kiss Chan Wook! WTH? And of course Baek Ho himself couldn’t believe it and cries, “NOOO!!!” Someone else yelled, “Cut!”Darn! It was a drama rehersal and Baek Ho was back in high school! Yeah! That’s right he is gonna try and change the past!!!
Overall this episode was medium paced and fun to watch!
