Not only is Yu-jin a hardworker for KBB Security, she also has to work hard to make Tak notice her. I loved the way she put on her lipgloss, which apparently she hasn't done in a while, and acted all flirty-flirty with Tak saying "I'm starving".
I think Yu-jin is so much prettier than Na-young, her clothes and haircut don't do her justice. I feel like the writers are trying to force us to believe Tak and Nayoung are these exceptionally beautiful people by making comments like "Your son is so handsome" and "Your such a pretty girl" when to my eyes they are just pretty average looking.
They should definetly have offered a modeling chance to Yu-jin rather than to Nayoung. Also, what kind of amateur model is Sin-ae when she doesn't seem to have an agent (remember the time that young male bodyguard offered to be her agent) or a stylist until now? When Sin-ae went from a "grace" to "punk" concept, I couldn't help but notice that instead of her look being punk she looked like a poodle who had been electro-shocked. LOL!
I'm starting to see why Mikey said that President Han was a bit on the evil side. But still, I couldn't help but get all tingly/giggly when he was about to kiss Yu-jin (even though I probably wouldn't have liked it as much if I were the one being forced to accept the kiss). I could stare at my desktop of him all day!
Tak is such a "player" and he doesn't even notice! He's so nice to both girls that I think right now they mistake his concern and kindness for romantic interest.
I was a little disappointed that the writers sometimes seemed to steer “Bodyguard” towards being a straight action flick when there were so many great opportunities for character development along the way. President Han’s situation is an interesting subplot that the writers barely explored.
Imagine the poor guy, a halfway decent fellow who faces ridicule from his father for not being ruthless enough. And then, when the younger Han finally begins his slide towards evil, he starts getting praise from his father – which only prompts him to move on to even greater misdeeds. The story of a son turning to the Dark Side in the hopes of gaining his father’s approval has all the makings of a true tragedy, but it looks like the writers never even noticed what a great subplot they had going. Too bad!
Na-young is cute, but boy, is she tiny! What does she weigh, like 75 pounds? Too skinny! There’s no way I can think of her as some kind of hot babe when she looks so much like a 13-year old girl. But yes, she sure gets rave reviews about her looks on the show.
Now, Yu-jin, that’s another matter. I think the director intentionally over-masculinized Yu-jin for her part in “Bodyguard,” maybe so she’d have a chance to pretty herself up a bit when she begins to develop an interest in Tak. When this actress (Han Go-eun) played a gloomy young heiress in “Like Father, Unlike Son” (don’t know if that series ever made it to Chicago) she had long hair and wore gorgeous clothes – and yes, she was an absolute stunner. I read somewhere that she’s 5’8” tall and weighs 106 pounds (also a little too skinny for my taste) but I think those kinds of numbers should definitely qualify her as model material – particularly in comparison to Na-young and Sin-ae!
;D yeah, and if you saw episode 12 where she gets kind of upset when Kyung-tak calls her a "chin-gu" or "friend" it was pretty raw. Na-young is just being a baby, but it is something i think us girls would do if we liked someone ten years older. gross, but... so, Yu-gin plans on quitting KBB. Good for her. and Han is freaking me out. how could he lie about devotion trying to close in on Moon-suk's daughter? he's good-looking, but who cares? Not only is Yu-jin a hardworker for KBB Security, she also has to work hard to make Tak notice her. I loved the way she put on her lipgloss, which apparently she hasn't done in a while, and acted all flirty-flirty with Tak saying "I'm starving".

I feel like the writers are trying to force us to believe Tak and Nayoung are these exceptionally beautiful people by making comments like "Your son is so handsome" and "Your such a pretty girl" when to my eyes they are just pretty average looking. i agree with you all the way. han is the one with the looks, but his fish-like lips don't do him justice. yu-gin works hard, more than what meets the eye actually. I think she deserves Kyung-tak.

Yugin, "fish lips" ha ha! I always thought they were just a little pouty. I'll take him anyway.
I totally agree w/you Mikey about the writers being able to create a really deep drama but settle for something more superficial. I guess it's just not possible in 22 episodes. Of course they could have extended that number to begin with.
Grandparents from WML: "Are my words dog's nose to you?"
The general consensus seem to be that 'Bodyguard' should be longer and more drawn out, and 'Wife' should be faster and tighter.
Am I the only one who likes Na-young, as well as Yu-jin? I just marvel about how blind Tak is. Here's these two women practically throwing themselves at him, yet he seems totally oblivious. He treats one like a kid sister, and the other as only a co-worker.
I can't help myself but write this, when my dad saw Bodyguard for the first time (the last episode) he marveled at Na-Young's beauty, saying he didn't know such Asian beauty existed. I can see why he would say that, but I would rather look like Yu Jin than Na Young.
