Deok sun is a sunny, sweet, earnest girl who has no experience with love except from reading her romance novels. At 18 years old, she really hopes to have a boyfriend to love her.
For anyone who thinks she should have chosen Jung hwan, I hope this timeline will show you that she was only interested in him briefly from Jan 28 until March 12.

That is a grand 43 days.
Only slightly more than a month.

As far as she knows at the end of that period, Jung hwan is not interested in her. Do you expect her to fall in love with Jung hwan, after only being interested in finding out if he really likes her, after five long years?

Bora is a headstrong, fiercely independent young woman. How did she end up falling for the near-perfect dongsaeng Sun woo? I will cover that as well in a separate time line.
