Do Hoon is a dedicated office worker who immerses himself in his job, shuttling between home and the office day in and day out. His life seems monotonous, filled with loneliness and sadness. However, one day, his life is completely turned upside down by his neighbor, Yoon Soo. Yoon Soo is Do Hoon's junior in college, a young man who suddenly dropped out of school. One day, Yoon Soo appears in front of Do Hoon, holding a bowl of sweet rice soup as a housewarming gift. Do Hoon accepts, and suddenly, his world brightens as the sweetness warms his weary soul. Yoon Soo confesses that he once lacked the courage to confess his feelings to Do Hoon and chose to avoid him. However, over the years, Yoon Soo has put this past behind him, while Do Hoon begins to unconsciously care about Yoon Soo from that moment on. From that day forward, Yoon Soo and Do Hoon's lives undergo a transformation. After work, they spontaneously become a perfect pair for sharing meals, and every meal becomes precious quality time for them. Do Hoon even realizes that his feelings for Yoon Soo are growing warmer and deeper with each passing day. (Source: iQIYI) Edit Translation

Sweet cute and I appreciate the continued efforts!!!

Hello! I rarely review but need to remind the viewers to think like a business. We are getting a lot more lgbt content in recent years. The veteran actors, writers, directors and producers spent decades to get us to this point. This point? YES we get films, big production series, dating shows, gay couples on major Korean magazine covers AND we get multiple small studios crowd sourced for cute stories to film in a week and bring it to us. Please do not forget! I am grateful and appreciative.

Please appreciate the small stuff too.

We would read this manga and be super happy. Someone spent the money to give us some visual with cute story.

I appreciate them. I appreciate how hard it was to get to this point. I look forward to the future.

The boys did a good job. They were pleasant to watch.
For me the actor playing the chef is damn gorgeous! Phew

Sure if you peel back his actions it may seem stalkerish lol but because it goes so fast he is honest immediately and it's all good. Real life gay is hard anywhere and this showed four different types of men (in one episode) and how they handle things. Was cool.

What I loved is this series is set in a gay friendly world. There was no mention or hesitation of being gay. No fear. Thai BL started doing that too and I am happy with this turn.

Anyway it is very fast, it's cute and worth our stream on legal iQIYI site.

Enjoy and if you can leave a comment for each actor. The actors (mainly Koreans) come to mdl and read our stuff!

Thanks!

Innocent, sweet, light, heart fluttering romance.

Really enjoyed this short drama. The romance was very sweet and made my heart flutter.

I love how fast paced the drama was but at the same time, it didn't feel rushed. We got to see Do Hoon come to have feelings for Yoon Soo each episode and it was really cute to witness. Yoon Soo was also a fun character to watch; he was a master flirt and I loved how he'd always tease DH by getting all up in his personal space and making DH flustered. This drama will definitely have you giggling and holding your breath to see what happens next.

Aside from the romance, I also enjoyed seeing DH and YS in their respective workplaces. I liked all the interactions with the side characters too, even the intern who was crushing on DH.

The only thing I didn't like much was the misunderstandings between DH and YS because of YS's past relationship. I didn't like how both characters handled their feelings about it, but it's a short drama and I understand that a drama needs, well, drama...so I'm not too mad about it. Also, I sorta felt like YS was a bit too nice(?) with the way he handled his ex. Like, idk, I'd have preferred if he was more harsh to him especially considering the lengths the ex took to try to get back with him...but they'd been together for three years so maybe there was still some leftover affection there....(I don't think the drama intended for this to be the takeaway, but that was just the undertone I got from the whole ex-plotline which left a bad taste in my mouth and made me low-key side more with DH's feelings).

The acting was okay. I liked DH's actor the most. The character and actor himself reminded me of Ji Hyun from the Eight Sense; they both have that adorable and aloof vibe to them so it made watching him really fun. I mainly just had a problem with YS's actor and the intern. The intern's actor just came across as unnatural, but more like in a novice actor kind of way, which is understandable. Whereas my problem with YS's actor was the character always had this perpetual smile on his face. Idk if it was how the character was written or if thats just the direction the actor took. The smile was just so constant it made me uncomfortable in the beginning lmao. YS just always had a specific smile on his face regardless of whether the scene called for that kind of expression, so it really just pulled me out of the scene at times.

Overall, however, it's a really sweet, and light drama. For a short drama, it actually has some depth to it too which was nice.
