A Letter to David Choi

Dear David,

Your life is rather tough right now, isn’t it? Being the second lead is never easy.

I’m not sure where you went wrong. Believe me, you did everything right in your love for Bo Tong. It’s not you, it’s her.

On paper, you guys are perfect. She’s quirky, you’re quirky. She’s clueless, you’re helpful. She’s kind, you’re even nicer.

It should just work.

Alas, you’re second lead status could never truly be contested. If only you had met Bo Tong long before the beautiful Ma Te came into her life. Then perhaps you could have had a chance.

You certainly gave it an admirable effort. Heck, even Bo Tong wavered at some points! Your chemistry can’t be denied.

To boast your confidence, here are some reasons why you are amazing

You’ll do anything for the one you love. For instance:

Quit your fancy job

Attend strange things like a sock-lover party

Star in ridiculous infomercials

And make vows of protection, all while wearing a silly costume.

You have a wonderful laugh

And you give great hugs.

And last but not least, your ability to take delight in the little things in life is beyond endearing.

So what? Despite all of your wonderfulness, the love of your life is still slipping away.

I can’t promise that you will find someone exactly like Bo Tong, but I can almost guarantee that you will find someone who will appreciate and reciprocate your love 110%. You are special and you need to find the right girl to fully love your charms.

Here are some tips to help you in your future love endeavors

The hair hat is not a good look. No matter how wonderful of a person you are, most girls will run in the opposite direction.

Don’t ruin your chances.

You’re much too quirky to only wear a plain black suit and tie when you put on your rich chaebol persona.

You’re wealthy- don’t completely hide this fact. Be prepared to use it as a tool when needed.

Hanging a life-size portrait of your love interest may not be the best tactic.

Screen Shot 2013-12-22 at 10.17.08 PM

Stay away from ridiculously beautiful men. You are handsome and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

That being said, you may want to ask Ma Te for some wooing tips. He seems to know his way around the ladies.

Don’t be afraid to share your feelings.

You have a huge heart and a big part of your charm is your ability to love unconditionally.

Cheer up, David. Good things will soon come your way. It’s been so painful to see you teased by Bo Tong. She really doesn’t know what she is missing! It does seem like your half-brother wants to expand your relationship- that’s great! Maybe you should focus on your family while you wait for love to find you? I’m sure it will!

Keep on being your quirky, endearing self and the rest will follow!



P.S. Have you met Young Do? You guys can bond over being rich, second leads that just can’t seem to get their girl. I’m not sure if you’d actually get along, but he’s a pretty cool guy. Call him up sometime!

  1. Hi! I’m from the Philippines and I should say I’m so amazed with your posts re: David Choi and Young Do’s unhappy fortunes as second male leads. But there are some other second male leads that we would like to read about. If we can request that you write something about Goong’s Lee Yul, He’s beautiful’s Shin Hwa, and BOF’s Yoon Ji Hoo, that would be really awesome. Thank you so much! We’re hoping to see you post letters about these guys in the future! More power! 😀
