Disclaimer: Spoiler alert if you have yet to catch the drama and intends to binge-watch on it.
Korean drama (Kdrama) fanatics were probably drawn deeply into the tragic love story, between Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na’s characters in Goblin previously. I was exhilarated when TvN announced “Touch Your Heart” where the two would play leading roles, although I had my doubts on whether a drama could pull something off the ratings just by having them. Nevertheless, I had to see my long-anticipated “Goblin-reunion” of the ‘Peach Couple’ / ‘PiChi Couple’ (the name fans coined for the couple Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na) myself.
While the first episode lacked any attention-drawing elements, the story developed with the introduction of the relationships between the various characters. Don’t expect too much “surprises” (or lack thereof) in the entire plot, but its strongest selling point is the sporadic yet unforgettable humour. The supporting casts and characters so often referred to as “scene stealers” was all out to steal the show. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Shim Hyung Tak and Park Kyung Hye’s characters – one is desperate for love (Literally falls in love in 3 seconds, no kidding) and the other has his pride (and has to see if his heart will go numb *rolls eyes*).
Korean drama “Touch Your Heart” brings about the end of Peach Couple (Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na)?
As much as I was drawn to the reunion of the Peach Couple, I am kind of on the fence with this drama. The cast was fantastic, the acting was good, the side stories was enjoyable, and the humour was my cup of tea. I don’t know what it was, but there’s definitely something about the characters – the simple-mindedness and innocence whenever they try to make a move, made me end up shrieking like a 6-year-old girl and cringing my entire face wanting to see more.
I wouldn’t really call this an “ending” because to be honest, based on the story (with one ‘major’ plot from the evil ex, and all the other issues that popped up like their breakup) this drama could well go beyond 30 episodes; having more scandals often faced by real-life idols. To spoil it, the ending was basically Yun Seo (Yoo In Na’s character) publicly “unveiling” her boyfriend. So, how do I feel about it? Just happy, but that’s really it.
I loved all the little tugs at my heartstrings, making me cringe yet crave for more of the gorgeous Peach Couple. This is probably one drama that you can binge-watch at your own time, and I definitely recommend you to do so. Shallow plot so what? It made me swoon all over their naivety and purity, and I still ship #PeachCouple.
