  1. – Every truck is presumed guilty of being a Truck of Doom unless you can prove the opposite.
    – The passenger front seat of luxury cars is reserved for kissing and making out. If the driver is not your style, you know what to do.

    1. Good call on the Truck of Doom. I don’t recall a truck ever appearing on shoots without it being dangerous!

      1. LOL truck of doom is a good one. How about, when a man and a woman meet in the middle of the crosswalk on a busy street to reconcile/hug/kiss/confess all traffic must magically disappear/avoid them for the duration of their meeting.

        1. Updated! Thanks for suggesting amendments. Sorry I can’t reply every time, but if you check the post, your suggestion should be under the Amendments section. 🙂 (If it isn’t yet then I deserve to be the 2nd lead for the rest of my life)

  2. This whole Road Behavior Act kept me laughing till the end. This just makes us realize haw idiot a lot (if not all) of kdrama characters are.
    A pedestrian cannot cross the road unless he/she is confused, depressed, and/or sad enough not to notice the cars zooming by – this isn’t a kdrama if the pedestrian is in his/her right state of mind.

        1. Oh I really am. XD
          Not that I’m really fluent in English but seeing a word spelled wrongly or worse, really bad grammar, I cringe and I start getting b*tchy..well in front of my monitor. Haha.
