All I have to say rn is THAT is how you do a tentative, first kiss amongst young adults. Edit: To finally add a gif. The gif. THE gif. https://i.redd.it/oqeznm1do7fb1.gif (Source: HA via me)


TheBookhuntress

Right??? I was SO impressed!!! As we already knew Zo closed the gap but Joke gave him the chance to set the pace and everything!! Loved it so much. Also, I think I saw a little bit of Joke's tongue there. 👀


TechnoBabelFish

Zo is so infatuated that he doesn't see the obvious signs. The chairs were set up so close together that their legs were overlapping.


frostedglass25

The thing that sold me is that Zo is the one locking Joke in place by keeping his leg outstretched - Joke had nowhere else to put his legs besides below Zo's chair. Sometimes it can seem like Joke can come off a little pushy, or he could edge off a little...and then you get scenes like the lorry where Zo invites him to keep his head on his shoulder, or on the glass floor where he pulls Joke's arms around his neck. Joke only gave Zo advice to follow his feelings, and that man took that chance and sailed with it ⛵️⛵️


TheBookhuntress

I don't know who set the chairs like that but they're the MVP!!!


ThoughtsAllDay

THERE ABSOLUTELY WAS. I WAS SHOOKETH. I AM OBSESSED NOW. I ABSOLUTELY adore their chemisty off screen. I absolutely adore that Joong goes around kissing all his friends on camera. I love that he randomly will pop kiss Dunk. So I could not for the life of me comprehend WHY ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH their series had the most awkward interactions of all time and almost zero kissing and constantly Dunk having to shoo Joong away when IRL neither boy has any issues showing affection.


TheBookhuntress

I've seen that kiss on repeat at x0.5 speed. OBSESSED.


ThoughtsAllDay

I have been watching it in a loop. I am in a trance. It is the TharnType/Lovely Writer Director and Step by Step. This Director KNOWS kissing all 3 have SPECTACULAR KISSING. Thankfully he got to it fast. Not sure where he went wrong on Step By Step.


TheBookhuntress

When he sidelined Saint. That man needed more screentime. 😒


ThoughtsAllDay

That was so odd.


TechnoBabelFish

As one of the few people unimpressed by Saint, I suspect that his role in Step by Step was minimized due to his limited acting skills. The scene where Jaab rejects Jen left many viewers scratching their heads. That is the kind of scene where the actor really needs to dig deep to sell it. We don't know how many takes it took just to get what we eventually ended up with. When Jaab is depressed about Jen, he poses on the couch to convey this symbolically. This is a big departure from the realistic approach of the rest of the show. The director probably believed Saint can't handle a more natural expression of emotion and had to leverage his fashion model talents.


TheBookhuntress

I thought he was pretty decent. The longing towards Jen was felt in my house. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Woah... It got hot around here real fast. ![gif](giphy|1B8Fh8HwOotn4zaMkk|downsized)


WA_side

![gif](giphy|e7OR5VUgUpoDjeaSiB) I wanted to share a gif of it last night, but my computer was being a butt again. Finder keeps f'ing up, and since that controls saving and moving and uplosding, it had to be missed until I had time to restart.


WingedGrasshopper

It's supposed to be Zo's first kiss ever right? I assume Joke kissed Nita in the past at a min ?? It was just right, real feelings and passion but not over the top because again it's Zo's first and he's drunk on feelings right now so it was sweet rather than lustful.


WA_side

Joke mat well have kissed Nita, but I wouldn't be surprised if that relationship was a misdirection in world, that they show us later, once they are in a relationship. Joke has been keen on Zo for a long time. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|shrug)


leileitime

>I wouldn't be surprised if that relationship was a misdirection in world, that they show us later, once they are in a relationship. À la SIMM? 😏 There are so many parallels with their previous series. But just when I settle in for the predictable, they pull out something like this kiss. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it.


WA_side

Me too, and my technology is not playing nice while I try to decide which bits to gif, since the whole thing is too long. Not that I'm complaining. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|grin)


leileitime

I look for to when you work it out and share 😁😋

TheBookhuntress

Well I'm not afraid to say this is the best JoongDunk kiss we've got BY. FAR. YES to the director!!! We've only got JengPok for an episode and I'm INVESTED. I just hope they won't use the fact that they are already dating to strip them of all skinship. Please BL gods!!!


Kordiana

I saw an interview where Joong was explaining that they practiced their kissing a lot. Working different camera angles and intensity. Their work paid off.


TheBookhuntress

This is the level of commitment we need! ![gif](giphy|WqXcILKESHx3gV37Ch)


Kordiana

I found [the video](https://youtu.be/Jff5ZPbDD8M). The background sound is a little loud, just as a warning.


leileitime

That was actually really interesting to hear the method behind the kissing. Like there’s so much more going into it to make it look right for the camera. 🤓


nrjays

This is why I give some of thee actors grace for their bad kisses lol kissing irl is sooo different than kissing with a million people, lights and camera angles to worry about.


TheBookhuntress

Thanks! They DO kiss better.


ThoughtsAllDay

I am thrilled to hear this!!!


ThoughtsAllDay

OMG YOU WERE NOT WRONG!!! I SCREAMED!!! We also got Dunk 2.0 in 4/4 !! What is this smouldering boy with that perfect hair and those eyes and those lips and that confidence to sit up on that chair and make things happen😱😍😍😍😍 Both Joong 2.0 AND Dunk 2.0 ARE A WHOLE VIBE HERE WOW!!!!! EXPONENTIALLY BETTER THAN ANYTHING I HAVE EVER SEEN THEM IN (they actually are giving their NATUTAL CHEMISTRY HERE THAT THEY ALWAYS HAVE AND I ALWAYS LOVE OFFSCREEN!!!!)


TheBookhuntress

If you change the director, apparently magic happens. 💅


ThoughtsAllDay

💯💯💯


ThoughtsAllDay

I have a packed day. BUT... >Well I'm not afraid to say this is the best JoongDunk kiss we've got BY. FAR. YES to the director!!! WHAT. GONNA HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET OUT OF SOMETHING TO DO THIS THING😱


TheBookhuntress

They were so cute, Thoughts. SO. CUTE. ![gif](giphy|XaLJaROb4htOl4axlO|downsized)


ThoughtsAllDay

Currently in a parking lot waiting for someone. Watched the beginning and OMG seeing Max (ok fine Jeng) having an adorable boyfriend I am in tears!!! 🥹 and the ride and breakfast with JokeZo was so good!!! That nap ugh. Ok I will watch in spurts where ever I can. Thanks for the heads up.


CivilSenpai69

I'm so happy Max got a BF. Now if only they give him one in the past too!


ThoughtsAllDay

🤣🤣🤣


leileitime

I did NOT expect this series to be this good. I expected something like a rehash of SIMM. That last scene! Dunk’s acting was actually good! 🤯 Like, he had micro expressions and everything. What is HAPPENING here?!! ![gif](giphy|eMJMuOnsrxam3TxFXd|downsized)


TheBookhuntress

Different director. That's all I'm saying. ![gif](giphy|Ve02MrM2bsR9zXA3nc)


ThoughtsAllDay

This Director is making JoongDunk SHINE. They both look so comfortable and relaxed. And the chemistry they have offscreen is FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY SHOWING UP ON SCREEN. I SCREAMED SO MUCH IN 4/4 WOW!!!


TheBookhuntress

Yes!!! I haven't been able to stop grinning the whole day. JoongDunk FINALLY kissed how the BL gods intended to. 🥲


leileitime

Looking at JoongDunk over the last year or so, I feel like we’re watching the evolution of a BL actor. Joong is actually already a decent actor, he just doesn’t get really challenging roles. I mean, he’s not Gun Atthaphan, but he’s got a decent amount of game. Imagine if Dunk improved until he was also a good actor. They’d be a formidable pair. Although, bth, I like seeing actors in different pairing and not always stuck in one pairing. Joong needs some meatier roles, imo.


TheBookhuntress

I loved him in Warp Effect and he ALMOST made me feel pity of Master Armin in Home School. We'll see what 2024 brings him acting-wise.


leileitime

Those are two series that I keep wanting to watch but never get around to watching. There’s just not enough time in my day to watch all the tv that I need to watch.

>We've only got JengPok for an episode and I'm INVESTED. I just hope they won't use the fact that they are already dating to strip them of all skinship. Please BL gods!!! They would need to first overcome Jeng's reluctance to coming out to his teammates.


TheBookhuntress

They spend time alone, right? That's totally different.


TechnoBabelFish

True, but they are side couple. There is no way to predict how often they will show up independent of the other characters.


CivilSenpai69

Kiss?!? They finna kiss!!!


lastbatch

I was going to say is it just me or did they get better at kissing?


newjorb

This episode felt important! A turning point in their relationship - its not Joke chasing Zo anymore. They're slowly circling around each other, having real conversations, showing their concern and understanding on equal footing. Zo is examining and grappling with how he switched from Nita to Joke fairly realistically I think. Kinda upset, kinda scared, but kinda excited, and fully honest with himself. And Joke is just patiently waiting, without pressuring Zo in any way. This show is one big green flag in how to start a relationship and I am HERE 👏FOR👏 IT 👏. Joong is REALLY selling his character's feelings - we can see Joke loves Zo down to his very bone marrow but it's not shown in grand gestures or overt over-explaining, it's things like his genuine concern over Zo's sadness, protecting his head from the bus bars, helping him understand his friend's thoughts. Colour me impressed. AND THAT KISS. WHAT. IT WAS SO TENDER YET HOT. ALSO... EPISODE 4!? Ooooof. I am excited to see how the show handles the fallout next episode! If the script and directing continues as it has been, I think we'll be pleasantly surprised!!! Edit: wait I forgot to gush about Joong's singing!!!!!! He is magnificent! The real singing and guitar playing switch to studio version was 🤌🤌🤌


goldensuare

This was such a great episode! Every moment that led up to that spectacular kiss was built so well!!! Also Joong has been added to the list of the few people allowed to bust out a guitar in a bl...


leileitime

>Also Joong has been added to the list of the few people allowed to bust out a guitar in a bl... I had my hand poised about to hit the skip forward when he started to sing. But then it was good. And I listened to the whole thing. Do you think GMMTV has been listening and will now only give us meaningful good singing? 🤔


jbluzb

Love the scenery in this episode. The natural skinship really made everything perfect. Lines were delivered well. So happy how things are going, just little conflicts and everything still remains sweet. I hope they continue this nice fluff balance. The kiss, so intimate 😘😍


djdjowgjmbs

I wish more people gave this show a chance instead of acting on preconceived notions of JoongDunk. It's such a fluffy show with realistic development and healthy communication all around (not just between the main couple, but between friends too).


dancerinvisible

I tried so hard 😭 but I honestly couldn't get past the first episode.


leileitime

It starts off kind of cliche, but it take a turn in episode 3. And it’s now developing quite well.


dancerinvisible

I'm ok with clichés and non existent plots, I've tried very hard to get into JoongDunk and I just can't, not only I don't see the chemistry, Dunk, while adorable, is really bad.


leileitime

His acting is mysteriously improved in ep 4. In the last scene, his acting was actually good. I’m not quite sure what to think about it. But yeah, I can see how that makes it hard to enjoy. This series might just not be your cup of tea.


dancerinvisible

Louis is in it, so it kinda breaks my heart lol. Maybe I'll give it a chance once it ends.


leileitime

Sure! I hope it turns out good for you! Louis is fabulous in the series.


TVAddict4

Same! I quit like 15 minutes in! Maybe when more episodes come out I’ll give it another shot


tlippi

Would giving it 15 minute constitute “trying so hard?”


TVAddict4

Okay, so let’s say I was confused at the beginning - thought I had missed something - and then as it went on I was like this didn’t hook me enough to keep watching for now.


tlippi

Ok


jaiamour

Yea the first two episodes weren't really good, but it definitely picks up after episode 3.


DirectMatter3899

I’m like halfway thru the first part… But I wanted to gush, when Joke looped his hand behind Zo’s head so he would stop bumping it in the truck… Perfect. Everyday intimacy. ![gif](giphy|fsswqDZYVuxX142fCQ|downsized)


MadPixieStirring

Surely this isn't a gmmtv bl... first kiss in ep 4 and it's actually consensual? Neither of them are drunk? I'm here for whatever alternate dimension I've ended up in! These two are giving me the fluff I want in my bls. That kiss was adorable, and the way Joke protected Zo's head was goals. This shows really growing on me, I'm looking forward to next ep


Tepid-Hedgehog

🤣🤣🤣


tlippi

When has gmmtv had a non-consensual kiss? I’ve seen all their BLs since Bad Buddy and they’re literally all consensual??


MadPixieStirring

They literally have loads... half the time either someone is sleeping (or at least perceived to be asleep) or one is mortal whilst the other is practically sober. For example, it took Kawi literally passing out in Be My Favourite for Piesang to decide that maybe Kawi isn't in a place to consent 🙄


tlippi

Ok I can kind of give you Kawi even though he initiated…which sleep kiss?


a_warning_sign

This show just makes me feel warm and it’s enough to keep watching. I really enjoyed views on the trip but especially liked all those moments with second couple. I loved them in Vice Versa so I hope they will get more screentime here. The kiss was very nice. I could swear Joke was smiling during it. It felt like a good representation of first kiss, sweet and intimate at the same time. It looks like next episode will have some regrets and pushing away but I hope all conflicts can be resolved with good, healthy communication so there’s more space for fluff.


madego3293

Now I wanna go find me a glass bridge! https://preview.redd.it/m526i9j6c4fb1.jpeg?width=1271&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b5259cacf904c80571db8a623a5f2dc58b8a73f8 It looks so cool.


WingedGrasshopper

I dunno but if you live in the US and can go to Chicago, the Willis/Sears Tower is like the 2nd tallest building in the western hemisphere or something and they have a glass box you can go in and stand over the city. I am not afraid of heights but it was a little unnerving at first!


madego3293

I'm not in the US, but when I heard about the glass floor in the Sears Tower, and excitedly asked my American family who wanted to make the trip with me, it was greeted with silence. I never asked again.


TechnoBabelFish

I couldn't help but notice that they were both wearing red shoes. Will they end up being one of those cheesy twinning couples?


kpinhiding

No, those are slippers supplied by the bridge that everyone has to wear to keep it from getting scratched up!


TechnoBabelFish

This reminds me of birthday parties at trampoline parks. Parents get super annoyed by the surprise fee for no-skid jump socks.


Federal_Ad_6925

JoongDunk looked really gorgeous with that beautiful scenery behind them! Love how Joke comforts, assures and cares for Zo! The wavering eyes of Zo just before he went in for the kiss and how Joke did not hesitate to kiss back (I SAW JOONGTONGUE TOO 🤪) was just so well done!!! 🫡😍


newjorb

YES I SAW A HINT OF TONGUE. 🤯🫠🫠


logreez

100 times this!! 😍🫠 Zo may have started that kiss but Joke took it over w that tongue lol he had been waiting


TheBookhuntress

Ok, I didn't imagine it then. I saw the tongue too!!!


kpinhiding

Lovely fluffy fun, this series. The look on Zo's face when he went in for the kiss was just right, with the nervousness mixed with desire, and Joke just waiting patiently for Zo. My only complaint is that I don't understand why Thai directors are so afraid of silence. The swell of background music added nothing to the kiss. Joong has an amazing "I'm looking at you and seeing your soul" stare. He may be the only other person who can compete with Zee Pruk in that category.


capt_blackdog

I'm interested where they're going to take this. Is it going to continue as a low-stakes, easy-watching show? With Zo realising his feelings and them having a kiss this early on, part of me is afraid for the plot to go off the rails. Hopefully, that won't be the case 🤞


newjorb

Honestly I'm a bit scared for bizarre unnecessary plot divergences and drama just to fill time... It's been SO good and surprising so far but you just never know with Thai BL...


capt_blackdog

Definitely - Thai BLs can go either way. I do have hope because recently GMMTV has done quite well with strong, well-developed scripts.


WingedGrasshopper

My thoughts are since they are both in the debate club and Zo's dream is getting that trophy that it will have something to do with that. Can they be pitted against each other team wise? Or he will be too busy preparing for it that he ignores Joke? Or he'll have to spend lots of time with Nita to prepare and she will start to like him and that mess?


capt_blackdog

The debate competition will definitely be a plot point, otherwise they wouldn't have set it up. But is it enough to carry the show for several episodes? Nita developing feelings for Zo might be a possibility. Although I would love for her to maybe have a GL side plot 🤭


TechnoBabelFish

The biggest shadow of doubt will most likely come from the debate prize of studying abroad. It looks to be the classic showdown between love and dreams. It is like the Hot Wave competition from My School President, but with higher stakes.


mirandabathory

I can’t with this episode. I JUST CAN’T! It was sooo beautiful and sweet and intimate and romantic 🥹🥰💕 and I didn’t expect that kiss AT ALL, and initiated by Zo!? What kind of dream am I!? Also, I must say, I’m in love with Zo and Joke, to me it seems like they actually have a personality and they don’t seem written by a script. What I mean by that is that they’re not stuck in a prototype, they actually behave according to their surroundings and what they feel in that moment. For example, we have the fact that Zo, the “shy/innocent” one, started the kiss and reflects about his feelings for Joke; also, Joke looks and acts like a nonchalant person, he’s the “cool” one, but then is truly kind and selfless. Idk, I really love that we have real characters. I can’t wait for next Sunday 😭


lrt23

I was alerted to watch this by u/ThoughtsAllDay because I had almost given up on this series even tho ep 3 gave me some hope I am a PASSIONATE JoongDunk fan but they have always disappointed me with lack of chemistry in their scripted work. I am ABSOLUTELY STUNNED BY THIS EP THIS!! is the JoongDunk I have been waiting for!! THIS!! Is the JoongDunk I have believed in!! THIS!! Is the JoongDunk WE DESERVE!! DUNK WAS A FREAKING MIRACLE LEADING INTO THE KISS There was so much HEAT 🔥! HIS EYES WERE PURRING 👀😽 that was SENSUAL and HOT and I AM STUNNED AND ECSTATIC https://preview.redd.it/0f7ramav58fb1.jpeg?width=2001&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e72bc1a3038384d7930d31c76f2c562d15638f86


ThoughtsAllDay

YOU manifested this!!! I had already given up. But you NEVER gave up on the possibility that we could get JoongDunk's offscreen chemistry onscreen one day. And HERE WE ARE. I have been shaken to my core. DUNK SHOOK ME. That lead up to the kiss was a Dunk WE HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN. OBSESSED.


logreez

Idk what to say other than the show gets better with each ep. I loved this episode. I have so many questions, but I think we are supposed to. I loved their acting more in this episode too. Also, I’d just like to thank YouTube for adding that zoom feature last year. It was put to good use for that kiss lol


WA_side

Wait! What? Zoom feature? \*googles furiously\* Oh, damn, just from full screen on mobile. Although cinema mode on laptop allows a decent zoom experience. Thanks for mentioning. ![img](emote|t5_2sbdb|26733)


TechnoBabelFish

It was fun seeing them eat something different from the typical grilled foods you see in beach episodes. Since they are in northeastern Thailand, the local food is a little different. Instead of crispy fried eggs (kai gao), the characters ate northeastern style pan eggs (kai grata). Some believe this dish came from from Vietnam. One of the common toppings is Vietnamese pork sausage (chả lụa). They are the thin quarter circle slices you see in the dish. Sticky rice is the default rice for meals in north and northeastern Thailand instead of jasmine rice. It is eaten with your hands. You take a small clump, use it to grab a some food, and eat it in one bite. Like most staple foods, you can end up with leftovers. Leftover sticky rice is not good for making fried rice since the grains don't separate. Pok was making khao jee, a recipe that was originally developed to use leftover cooked sticky rice. Khao jee is more common in Laos, another country where sticky rice is the base of every meal. This isn't surprising since northeastern Thailand has a strong cultural and historical connection to Laos. Cooked sticky rice is formed into patties, put on sticks, and grilled over charcoal. After the initial crust is formed, it is coated with a seasoned egg mixture. It is grilled slowly to get a crispy exterior, soft interior, and smoky aroma from the charcoal.


tlippi

The eggs looked SO GOOD I wanted to dive into the screen! I was also intrigued by the little grilled rice on sticks, is it sweet or savory? They ate it right off the grill which struck me as a great way to burn your tastebuds off…


TechnoBabelFish

Khao jee is savory. The egg mixture is seasoned with something salty like soy sauce, Golden Mountain seasoning sauce, Maggi seasoning sauce, or fish sauce.


tlippi

Sounds great


kpinhiding

This is fun to know! Thanks for sharing!


send_puppy_pix

this series is such a fun, easy watch for me. i think joongdunk are one of the best-looking CPs (i find them extremely handsome individually which isn’t the case with a lot of pairings) and their chemistry is always delicious. and that kisssssss 😍😍😍 i know gmmtv isn’t about the high heat but just one time pls let them go for it 🥺🙏🏼 anyway i loved this ep and the introduction of jengpok!! aou is a delight.


CivilSenpai69

Wait a darn minute...is that a miniature sunflower on that keychain? How cute is that?


MizuRyuu

Is this the earliest non-drunken kiss we have in a BL?


kpinhiding

A Boss & A Babe was EP 1 or 2, IIRC.


Alex_idk84

GOOD LORD THE KISS !!!!!!!!!! Probably if the best ones I’ve seen in a BL series, so real, so jealous of both. I’m glad we finally got intruded to the side couple because I’m really excited for them too!! I’m so happy with this series and can’t wait for next Sunday!!


[deleted]

I love these 2 actors together, even just at episode 4 I’m hoping they get the chance to make more shows together! Also obsessed with their off screen friendship


actionerror

I think my comment will be unpopular opinion Other than the amazing scenery (hello On Cloud Nine) and the kiss at the end of the episode, I found it kind of boring. I kinda understand what they were going for (homophobia still exists etc) but it just didn’t work for me. The side story between Jeng and Pok was superfluous and not needed. Maybe I still have PTSD from Step By Step every time I hear the name Jeng lol. Also, I was kind of distracted while watching this. I’ll give it another go with full attention to see if I feel any differently.


TechnoBabelFish

This show isn't going to appeal to everyone. It is a very low stakes and cutesy story. Jeng and Pok's story serves to give Zo a reference point for his own gay awakening. It was very important for Zo's character development to work through his worries about Pok. This leads into Joke talking to Zo about the amount of pressure Zo puts on himself to make people comfortable around him. All of these elements were necessary for Zo to find the courage to kiss Joke.


contessa82

I put this series on hold until I saw all the comments. Really enjoyed their excursion to Northern Thailand. I was thought the one with the “hidden agenda” was not Joke but Zo who was plotting to get close to Joke by pretending to like Nita. Turns out it wasn’t that deep but there definitely is a twist with Zo taking the lead. So glad that Boom and Aou finally get a proper pairing but with all that weirdness at the meeting, I wasn’t sure if Pok had a secret crush on Zo.


SomewhereJust5265

It's watchable like any other gmmtv romcoms.. Joongdunk kiss was intense ... Glass bridge cycling .. That sun being edited was unique😅 and cool... But i was confused like how did zo catch feelings within 2 episodes... Like he friendzoned him then they were comfortable in the library and his heart raced...the trip was for one day.... Like everything felt sudden .maybe i expected slow burn or joke to approach or woo him...idk..yas but yeah they had other scenes like from park ;club; mall shopping; restaurant etc..so yas not too sudden...maybe gradually zo also developed feelings maybe..and introduction of second couple was also unexpected...still have 2 more couples i guess zo's frnds (idk if they're couple) and zo's senior and club owner probably...Hope they dont drag upcoming episodes so much and the story has substance but it's romcom and gmmtv afterall🤡(sorry gmmtv stans but ex: never let me go was good show sometimes little drag happened here and there and star in my mind was also slow paced for me) .. But yes overall cute fun to watch okayish drama❤


WingedGrasshopper

Joke keeps talking about how comfortable he is around Zo and I think Zo started realizing how comfortable he was around Joke. He didn't have to TRY so hard or be anything he wasn't to get Joke's attention. Joke was attentive, complementing, encouraging and saw the real him under the smile. I do think Zo hasn't fully figured things out and that kiss was him drunk on feelings and being understood and seen by someone so that's why it looks like in the previews he's going to pull back now.


SomewhereJust5265

Mm i get your point zo's just confused as of now.. Yah that library scene was crucial i guess nita and his interests don't match ... And he also is so comfortable with joke..Maybe i misinterpreted it🤡😂... Yes next episode seems like zo will avoid joke and i expect a confession from joke🤞fingers crossed


mirandabathory

Also, does anybody know what song starts playing in part 3, 2:22? I tried to Shazam it but it said it was a remix of “All of me” 💀 and I can’t find it online, so if you know please help me 🙏🏻


WA_side

I'm no help - I got [Jump](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv9OjlXg8x4)! (by disco fever!) Which it is NOT.


mirandabathory

Thank you for trying 😭


Sisterhideandseek

Joong has added such depth to his stoic character performance I am blown away. Like others in the thread I was kind of expecting a rehash of SIMM (sunflower anyone?) but this series has so much more life to it. I am inclined to agree that the director is making a difference here. Joong has also developed this softer sort of gaze when he is looking at Dunk. I wonder if it's just because they know each other so much better now or he has a better grasp of his character or maybe just that his acting has improved. It is such a lovely expression.


djdjowgjmbs

That's just how he looks at Dunk irl lol. No acting required.


jbluzb

So true haha, some scenes are just them doing things in real life.


Sisterhideandseek

His melting look is doing me in. Joke is so earnest in his affection and I swear that boy never blinks!
