THE DATE

Korean-style beef tartar and salmon sashimi over chum churum soju at Yukhoe muk-nun Yun-euh 102, Yanghwa-ro 6-gil, Mapo-gu (070-7762-8283).

FIRST IMPRESSION

Isaac : That smile. Maybe it was the fact that she was a bit fashionably late, but the first thing I noticed when I saw her was her smile.

Jisoo : He looks much better in real life. And he seemed like he would be a kind person. I was a bit late, but he greeted me with a smile. I was thankful for that.

CHEMISTRY

Isaac : We had a lot in common, from the college we attended to food preferences. To top it off, she somehow managed to laugh through all my semi-tasteless jokes.

Jisoo : He led the conversation during the date. He told me some interesting stories and it made me feel at ease. Most of all, I really liked that he was a heavy drinker.

AFTERWARD

Isaac : Hours flew by while we were at the restaurant, and while wrapping up, we agreed to meet the week after.

Jisoo : I was dead tired and I needed to leave early. He waited awhile until a cab came and sent me a message afterwards. It was sweet

VERDICT

Isaac : ♥♥♥♥♥ I don’t think it is my place to say what “we” might be, but I definitely would not miss the chance to see her again.

Jisoo : ♥♥♥♡♡ There’s definitely no doubt that I had a good time and that he is a good guy. When we get to know each other better, who knows?
