[The Romantic] youtube official channels

Many of you asked about English subtitles … one of you asked “What is the Romantic?” My guess is that The Romantic is airing internationally now in certain countries, it’s pretty popular, and I can only hope CJ E&M, parent company of channel tvN (Korean | English) will provide the subtitles on their youtube channels.

The Romantic is a variety show where single Korean guys and girls embark on a short trip to Croatia (Season 1) and Turkey (Season 2) and get to know each other. Besides going on dates, the production team gives them “missions” to fulfill, and they are made to comment and confess their feelings throughout the show, either individually to the camera, or face to face with all other participants. The entire show is shot and produced with beautiful cinematography, PD Lee Myung Han (creator of KBS 1 Night 2 Days) touts it as “a variety more romantic than a movie”.

Jun Sung: After our date today, I would like to ask Tae Hee a question. After returning to Korea after this trip, who would you want to meet again? You can only choose 2 guys.

Tae Hee: My 1st choice is … Jun Ho. While talking to Jun Ho, I realized, almost shockingly, that we were so alike. I’m very sure that it is just a platonic relationship.. heheh

Jun Ho: What.. did you say? Hey I’m a man of many charms~~

Tae Hee: Yeah, I’m very sure it is just platonic~ Like a younger brother. My 2nd choice is … (lowers head) Kang. Jun. Sung~

Jun Sung: Good, I’m satisfied. That’s all I need.

Day 1 interview, after Jun Ho’s 1st meeting with Tae Hee:

Q) What’s the possibility of you developing a relationship with her?

A) From how I see it, there’s no possibility at all. Totally no way. Although we talked a lot, inwardly both of us felt pretty awkward. If you ask me whether I feel anything for her as a woman – zero.

Day 3 interview:

Jun Ho) Tae Hee noona (elder sister)… I like her a lot.. yeah I grew to like her a lot. But the thing is… the both of us, if we were to decide whether this is a path of friendship or love, we’re pretty sure this is a strong friendship.

Q) Not even the possibility of 1 gram of love?

A) No way! She feels the same way too. I trust my instincts!

Day 4 interview:

Jun Ho) We really understand each other very well. More than our chemistry, we really have many similarities. Between both of us, it’s a friendship, not romance — we’re like “noona-dongsaeng” (sibling affections)

Day 5 interview, day of declaring your mid-trip preference:

Jun Ho) Today, Tae Hee showed many cute actions – like the way she cried out when she knocked her head on the bus. I saw many unexpected sides of Tae Hee. The impressions of her as a noona towards me as a dongsaeng (younger brother), yes I agree that I had earlier regarded it as a friendship… but the more I see her the more I feel that she’s very charming. I guess I didn’t notice that until now.

Jennifer: Jun Ho oppa~ In yesterday’s Midnight session, you said that you would choose me. Why didn’t you do it in the end? (respectful tone)

Jun Ho: Ah… that.. I thought a lot about it. Today I saw a lot of things which I never expected would happen — about Tae Hee. But.. That.. I said in an individual interview filmed earlier, maybe it’s ‘cos I lived apart from my mum… (embarrassed)

??

Jun Ho: No I don’t mean Tae Hee gave me a feeling of my mum… (Tae Hee kind of facepalmed *lol*) I used to mind the girl’s age in the past. But now, frankly, age isn’t important to me anymore. After thinking about it over and over again, I feel more and more drawn to Tae Hee.

. . .

Jun Sung: I would like to ask Tae Hee a question. We’ll be arriving in Korea this Sunday at 4pm. Let’s have dinner together. You live nearby anyway. I would like to see you home. I wonder if it’s okay… with you *^^*

Tae Hee: Um.. first of all, my parents will be coming to the airport to fetch me..

Jun Sung (without a flinch): That would be even better!

Tae Hee: So… I think it would be difficult for me to agree with your suggestion. Our offices are near each other too. We can meet up again, yeah, and have a meal, that would be good~ *^^*

    *Claps in glee* Oh, those two conversations that you excerpted are sooooo memorable! Pure nuggets of gold in terms of entertainment value. And the (remarks) that you added are right on the mark! (Tae Hee kind of facepalmed *lol*) and Jun Sung (without a flinch) … hahaha …

    Tae Hee … poor girl sure got put in the hot seat more than a few times during the Midnight Sessions. Not to mention that speeding curveball from Jun Ho during the mid-program selection that turned everything topsy-turvy. Even though her beet-red face often gave away her flustered feelings, Tae Hee’s earnest manner and honest answers really allowed her endearing and natural personality to shine through.

    Methinks that it’s time for another marathon re-watch … *double-clicks on The Romantic in Turkey folder and is greeted by the sight of those six familiar episodes.* Now if you’ll excuse me … ^^

    I really like this show. The love stories here are not scripted. So I wanted to watch all the episodes with english subtitles. Where can I watch all the episodes of The romantic in croatia? I wanted to ask for a link. I’ve been searching the episodes in youtube and google but can’t find any. thank you.
