Magical Moments Advent Calendar Day 7

We count down the days to Christmas by unveiling 24 magical Kdrama moments. Next up, “Angel Eyes”.

Episode 6 of Angel Eyes

Park Dong Joo (Lee Sang Yoon) has been hiding his true identity from his first love, Yoon Soo Wan (Gu Hye Sun). After a few preempted attempts by Soo Wan to identify Dong Joo, she takes him to the site of their first kiss, back when she was blind. She hushes him, closes her eyes, then runs her hands over his face.

Right away, Soo Wan recognizes the boy who saved her life. Dong Joo volunteers his name and, as she opens her eyes, he says, “Hello. Long time no see.” Soo Wan slaps him, and Dong Joo is okay with that, because he had it coming for his noble idiocy.

Soo Wan turns away, and breaks down into sobs. Dong Joo can only watch. As much as he fought to prevent Soo Wan from recognizing him, this moment is undoubtedly a relief for Dong Joo. A few hiccups remain before the couple are reunited, but at least, Dong Joo can stop acting the jerk to Soo Wan, and the way is paved to seeing Lee Sang Yoon smile, which is quite spectacular.

  1. I always find it interesting when actors portray someone with a disability. I wonder how netizens feel about this performance in comparison to, say, Can You Hear My Heart.
