  1. I’d like to add: Many first encounters take place in a foreign country or on Jejudo (see section 3 as to how it happens) before the two main leads meet again in Seoul.

  2. New reader here!
    Lol at Section 2. It isn’t a kdrama if they have a decent first meeting. It’ll be a milestone for kdramas if that happens. XD

    1. Hey tsukky! Kumusta? 😀
      QIHM might have violated this one… they only exchanged hellos and left with a good impression of each other. Although Boong Do was a time traveler at the time so I guess that’s a case of mistaken identity…

      1. Oh yeah, I saw that one. If you think of it, their meeting is really quite decent and pretty normal compared to the standard kdrama first meeting haha. But Boong-Do is from the past and he meets her in the future…that’s an unusual first meeting there haha.

        As much as we make fun of this first meeting thing, I actually think it’ll be boring if anything outrageous doesn’t happen on that fateful moment. The first meeting should be crazy! Haha.

        1. Teehee you’re right. I prefer my 1st meetings squee-worthy… shouty ones, not so much. (Unless it’s the cute, bickering, shouty ones.)

  3. Yup the fateful first encounter which makes our leads swear that they haven’t met a more bigger d-bag in their life.and under no circumstances will theyever fall in love with the respective other. 🙂
