Would I Date Them? Descendants of the Sun, Part 2

This time on Would I Date Him? I consider the second leading man of Descendants of the Sun.

Our candidate: Officer Dae Young, portrayed by Jin Goo from the series Descendants of the Sun.

His Background: Member of the Special Forces, second in command, escaped a gang past through the military. His love interest breaks the “no fraternization” rule.

Pluses: Strong, quiet, loyal, honorable with a wry wit and smile that snags you. Dae Young is all kinds of yummy. Dae Young is the kind of man supports your interest and your happiness.

Minuses: Refused to reengage a relationship with Officer Yoon Myeong Joo. Her father, a general, disapproves of their relationship. To clarify, Dae Young cares about her career and doesn’t want to jeopardize it. She, of course, wants her cake and eat it too. But Dae Young makes the decision for both of them, not allowing for compromise, effectively robbing Yoon Myeong of making their relationship a joint decision.

Would I date him?
* Dae Young the man? Yes.
* Dae Young the solider? A guy could disappear from my life without explanation and never return? His job is not just a job, it’s part of his identity.
I’d take the risk. This would necessitate independence to survive the “alone” times and be able to relish the “together” times. I note that during the show, the risk of dating Dae Young was touched on but it wasn’t a crucial issue because his love interest, Officer Yoon Myeong Joo, was also in the military and accepted the risks in loving him.

    Both of these soldiers. ..if I were a one night type of girl… (one week, one month)

    Shoot. I would keep extending the time and before you know it, I’m hooked and set up for hurt from their dedication to their patriotism/love of country. *sigh*

    Dae Young seems to be more quiet and serious than Shi Jin, but I think I could fall just as easily…Resistance of either of these yummy men IS futile… 💋
