7 First Kisses Episode 1 “Her Present”
We meet Min Soo Jin (Lee Cho Hee) on her 25th birthday. She’s at work bummed that she doesn’t have a boyfriend. She’s never dated either. Her co-workers have a subpar work ethic.
A cute guy (Kim Ji Hoon from Flower Boy Next Door) approaches and much to her dismay only wants to know where the nearest trash bin is. His busty girlfriend meets him and they go off arm and arm.
Soo Jin gets flagged by her boss to carry heavy boxes. She just happens to walk through a hallway with pictures of the men she’ll meet in this series. Soo Jin watches a couple kiss and bemoans her single never-been-kissed status.
Her fairy godmother (aka “Goddess of multiple fates”) Choi Ji Woo asks for directions and leaves her coffee cup and passport behind. Soo Jin dashes after the woman to return her passport but cannot find her. Soo Jin opens the book and sees it is not a passport. Before she can look further Ji Woo returns and she returns the book. To thank her, Ji Woo asks if she has a wish. Soo Jin struggles to get out the words but Ji Woo seems to understand and asks “you’ve never been kissed and you want a boyfriend”? That hits the nail on the head! Soo Jin looks stunned and doesn’t deny the truth of Ji Woo’s words. Ji Woo fans out 6 cards with silhouettes (no faces) on them. Ji Woo tells Soo Jin she’ll meet a great guy in 10 seconds. More stunned looks from Soo Jin. Time seems to stand still but only Soo Jin notices.
FINALLY, at the 8:26 mark, the reason why I’m watching this thing…
Lee Joon Gi strolls up with a messy hair and a sweet smile. Soo Jin delivers a stunned look. This girl has NO poker face. Calm down honey. You can do this. This is rigged in your favor. He says “I hear you are getting off work soon. I’ll wait for you outside”. Yes that’s bold but if we don’t get this party started there won’t be any kissing. Soo Jin offers a stunned look and asks him to confirm what he said. He does. The episode ends.
Total fluff but Lee Joon Gi showed up. He smiled.
Min Soo Jin (Lee Cho Hee) delivers the stunned look consistently and often. I was glad that the fairy godmother Choi Ji Woo was able to read Soo Jin’s mind and get the ball rolling on identifying men for her to potentially kiss.
Did I mention that Lee Joon Gi showed up and smiled?
Episode 1 is below. If you want to see Lee Joon Gi head to the 8:26 mark.
