My 800th post is a picspam! Whoo whoo! :D

I watched Finding Mr. Destiny (Looking for Kim Jong Wook) yesterday and I really, really enjoyed it. It's really funny, sweet, and very heartfelt. And also home to probably one of my favorite movie kisses ever. ♥ There was something about the kiss that was just so, "Awwwww, so cuuuuuute!" and it made me wish I could have a kiss like that. Hahah.

The movie itself stars Im Soo Jung, one of my favorite Korean actresses (the other being Moon Geun Young), and Gong Yoo, who I fairly like enough. The story is about the time Seo Ji Woo (Im Soo Jung) traveled to India and fell in love with a man named Kim Jong Wook. She, after being forced by her father because she broke up with this pilot dude who proposed to her (not a spoiler btw, happens in the first 15 minutes or so), decides to go to Finding Your First True Love Company, a business just opened up by Han Gi Joon (Gong Yoo). She's his first client so he works his hardest to help her find Kim Jong Wook and in the process, he falls in love with her.

And I assure you, it's as cute and wonderfully sweet as it sounds. The movie might be a little slow paced for some (it wasn't for me), but it's not trudgingly slow. But I will tell you right now that no one dies, has an illness, marries their sibling, or anything typical of a Korean movie/drama. I think the only trope it might have is the 'looking for your lost love' one but even then... Ah, I shouldn't spoil. I really loved it, so you should watch it!

Oh, before we get to the picspam itself, Gong Yoo didn't play Kim Jong Wook himself, nor is it like Han Gi Joon was the one in India and they're both experiencing amnesia. I say this because in the picspam and all of the flashback scenes of India, the actor who portrays Kim Jong Wook is Gong Yoo. It's... confusing. But there's one scene at the very end that is very, very cute. You'll understand if you watch it. ^^

I shall be posting this to [ profile] drama_hunt, too! And after looking up the cast again, sflkjgkjdfhgkj Lee Chung-Ah, who plays Im Soo Jung's sister, was the main girl in Temptation of Wolves! I didn't recognize her at all!! :O

(A clip of the kiss here! :) ♥)
