They are breaking stereotypes. Androgynous girl who isn’t disguising as a boy, who is taller than the guy, who squeals over idols and manga heroes but still doesn’t doll herself up, who remains as herself.
I will flip table if they make her wear dress or skirt or anything girly just to woo him. He is falling for her naturally, and it’s not necessary every girl has to act ‘girly’.
It would have been daebak if she was lesbian. Well, these baby steps should be appreciated. I like they didn’t mock the lesbian friend of hers but put the point the across of Eun Jae being straight in nicer manner. It would sure hurt her but they didn’t mock her choices or looked down upon her.
