A/N: Guest, your guess for this week's movie was correct!
This is based on To All the Boys I Loved Before. I didn't 'grow up' with this movie, but it was too darn cute not to include it.
One Sentence Synopsis of the Movie: Hopeless romantic Lara Jean has never dated, but all that changes when her little sister mails her secret love letters to the five boys she's had crushes on over the years.
Ga Eul shouldn't be this excited over a group of egocentric rich boys who wouldn't look her in the eye if they were paid to do it. Money means nothing to them anyway. They have so much of it.
Still, she joins the gaggle of girls at the front of the adoring crowd, jolting when someone screams in her ear.
Because while she won't lose her voice over her hopeless crush, she can't resist having a front row view of him when he enters the school with the rest of his entourage.
So Yi Jeong. Potter, playboy...perfection in a three piece suit.
Because why would someone with such flawless fashion sense wear something as mundane as a school uniform?
Not that he wouldn't also make a school uniform look positively sinful.
He strolls in with his three friends, hands in his pockets and a generous smile on his face, though as usual he doesn't smile at anyone in particular.
Just soaks up the attention like a cat soaking up sun.
Until his gaze lands on her.
Deviating a bit from the path of his friends, he walks right up to her and stops.
She's a deer caught in headlights. His eyes are still on her own.
"Chu Ga Eul, right?"
How does he know her name?
Oh god, he knows her name.
"Thank you, but I'm afraid I'll have to decline."
"I have a few rules when it comes to girls. I don't date foolish girls or innocent girls...or girls that write me letters." He cracks an amused smile.
Did he just call her stupid?
Does she care?
He's freakin' talking to her!
"What?" she repeats. That seems to be the only word she can remember.
"You wrote this, right?" Yi Jeong proffers an envelope from the inside pocket of his dark gray suit jacket. He holds it up for her—for everyone—to see.
How the heck does he have her super secret letter confessing her undying adoration for him?
"But since it was such a nice letter, I'll give you something for your trouble," he continues.
Ga Eul doesn't have time to react to that statement, to seeing her secret confession letter in her crush's hands, to any of it before he sweeps her into his arms and kisses her.
On the mouth.
In front of everyone.
The kiss only lasts a second.
He lets her go with a wink and moves on, trailing behind his friends. Nonplussed like it's just a normal Tuesday.
All the other girls are glaring at her now.
Ga Eul should probably care about that, but all she can do is touch her lips in shock.
The only person who knows about her letter, who knows where she keeps it—or, she thinks with a grimace, kept it—is Geum Jan Di. Her supposed best friend.
Jan Di's gonna die.
After Ga Eul goes to the bathroom, locks herself in a stall, and replays that kiss a billion times.
Hint for next week's episode: "Is that true? Am I a bet? Am I a bet? Am I a fucking bet?!"
