You shouldn't believe and follow the formulaic Korean drama tropes to win over a boy=))) They are no use :v Unattainable guys won't easily fall for average girls
This book reminds me of a time when I binge-watched K-dramas and be crazy for it. Lots of heart-throbs and romantic love line that draw me in. One day, I realized that K-dramas were often over the top and unrealistic, but watching it was an effective way to kill time and lift up your mood.
The thing that I like about Desi is that she takes control of her life. She knows what she wants and how to draw a detailed plan to achieve it. She reminds me of Lee Da Hae cast in Miss Riplay. However, when she decides to believe 100% in tips and tricks in Korean movies and applies them in real life, it seems a bit crazy and creepy. Her actions are far-fetched. She can do anything to get her happy K-Drama ending. I don't know why some people want to win over a boy at all costs. What is yours is always yours. Love is not a thing that can be planned. Even when you are an utter failure when it comes to love, I won't root for that.
I like the fast pace and humorous writing style. Desi is relatable to some extent. I've met lots of girls like her in real life. It is still a fun read, but don't take this book seriously and set high expectations for it.
“When you look at something, anything, you should first see it as a bunch of shapes that create an object,” he said, gesturing with his hands. He had nice hands. Long fingers, short clean nails, and the right amount of veins and boniness.
Lips met mine, soft, a little chapped, and warm. My eyes were open in true K drama heroine fashion. What in the world? My mind was registering what was going on, but my heart was going berserk, running in circles. FIRST KISS, an alarm was blaring. MOTHER OF DRAGONS, THIS IS MY FIRST REAL KISS. Was I doing it right? Oh my God, was I supposed to open my mouth now? Wait, close your eyes first, you freaking creep. Okay, eyes closed. Now wait, do I breathe? Aaaaaah
You cannot control who you love, Desi, but you can always control how hard you fight, okay?” His eyes crinkled with his grin. “Yes, you did a bad thing, but not so bad that you cannot explain it and have him forgive you.”
