Kyungsoo survives the apocalypse, but Jongin lives.
We can love someone with all our hearts but sometimes love isn’t enough.
7 years go by before they meet each other again.
In which Kim Jongin is one of the most brilliant (and arrogant) CEOs in Seoul and yet he’s too stupid to even notice how his assistant feels about him.
Kyungsoo is robbed on the street and Jongin is the reluctant rescuer who brings him home to treat his wounds. Kyungsoo insists on doing something for Jongin in return for his help. Jongin, who is dyslexic, eventually asks Kyungsoo to read a book to him. Somewhat inspired by Bernhard Schlink’s
: Kyungsoo is the lead tenor in the Palais Garnier production of The Magic Flute, and Jongin, the house répétiteur, is set on making him a star.
Jongin comes out of his shell thanks to Kyungsoo and cheap beer.
Kyungsoo has something special planned for Valentine’s Day. Jongin just has chocolates.
