nonchalant, meticulous, blunt, knowledgeable "i should be compensated for all the consulting and therapy i provide you."
yoongi isn't the main character, he's the laidback villain that will hit you where it hurts - everytime. it's a good thing he's on joo's side because that mouth of his is dangerous. they met in university. they were partners in science classes of their first and second year. they hit it off. before joo met namjoon, yoongi was deemed joo's in-public boyfriend aka her male chaperone to keep her safe from creeps. yoongi and joo's relationship is, for the most part, like brother-sister. they are constantly at each other's neck one moment and then having a deep heart-to-heart the next; however, they will always team up against an outside force. their personalities seem so similar yet are different variances from each other, like joo is chaotic neutral and yoongi is true neutral. they are a dangerous pair to cross because yoongi doesn't necessarily have a filter and speaks from his heart while joo is calculating and can be very backhanded with her words. he was there in place of seungwan, especially as a male presence when taking her to her doctor appointments.
dopey, supportive, loving, gluttonous "hey, joo - is your refrigerator running?" seungwan snorts. joo facepalms.
if seungwan isn't the main character, she's the comedic relief friend. she always means well, but sometimes the things she says and does aren't the brightest. seungwan's staple is puns. seungwan is joo's eating partner-in-crime. they are always on the hunt for the good eats. the two are always laughing. their favorite thing to do, besides eating together, was people watching and creating a life for the people they observed. they've been friends pretty much since the beginning of time. they've lived in the same neighborhood since they were kids. seungwan is the sister joo never had. they were glued to each other at the hip from 1st grade of primary school until they graduated high school. they were unfortunately separated when joo chose to stay in seoul to continue her studies while seungwan chose to go abroad. they continued to stay in touch via facetime. seungwan constantly beats herself up over the fact that she isn't in korea to support joo during her journey to become a mother.

as the twins grow older, joo wants to maintain a healthy relationship with her sons. she wants to set normalcy in them that they should never be scared to come to her for help. as a first time mother of two and a single mom on top, who's to say she isn't stressed out? she is so grateful that her boys aren't like wild animals, but she doesn't give herself enough credit. the boys love her very much, that goes to say they are only 2 years old.
PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF.
"alright." she adjusts herself in the chair. "hello, i am dokgo joo. i am 24 years old and i currently work from home."
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BABY.
joo turns to look into the next room, where her sons are playing. "they are kim jooseok and kim jooheon. jooseok is the elder twin by 12 minutes. my beautiful boys just turned 2 years old a few weeks back." she smiles. "they are a handful at times, that being there are two of them. it just means i have yet to experience a dull day."
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS?
she taps her chin, in thought. "i guess i've always aspired to be a successful, independent woman. i've been praying for my webtoon to go kind of viral." she nods, in realization. "oh i also want to be an outstanding mother to my children. wait, i am a bomb mom."
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A MOTHER, TO YOU?
"it means to be completely selfless." she tousles through her hair with her fingers. "you don't put yourself before your children. you give them the opportunities to become the best people they can be. you love them unconditionally. you are meant to be your child's number one fan and no one can take that away from you."
THOUGHTS ON TOGETHER?
"i feel honored. i am very impressed. i am very grateful. i'm almost speechless. this is a great program to have. and the slogan? brilliant. the fact that it's about mothers coming together and having each other's backs is top notch. only a mother knows what another mother is going through." she shrugs with exasperation. "i'd honestly struggle with pursuing my dream of writing and be a good mother, if it weren't for together."
HOW DO YOU THINK IT'LL BE WITH THE OTHER MOMS?
"i truly hope that there won't be any drama. i doubt there will be; i think i'm a team player and there isn't a problem i can't solve, but also we will all know that being a single mother isn't easy and we don't have the time for petty drama. i think it'll be like having the sisters i never had. it'll take off a load of stress."

the beauty of joojin began after joo started at sungshin women's university. jin was attending nearby at korea university. they both frequented a study cafe located in the middle of their campuses. one fateful morning, they were the only customers - catching up on some assignments. jin caught sight of joo first, she was immersed in her work. initially, he got up to purchase another cup of coffee. instead, he started to make his way toward her table. he quickly turned around and made it seem like he was pacing because joo had gotten up to grab something to eat while she waited for a document to download. she smiled as she walked past him to the counter.
to catch her attention, he paid for her breakfast along with a refreshing drink. joo invited jin over to her table to continue their work and get to know each other in between, which jin happily accepted. for the next few months, jin had planned some very romantic dates. february 14, 2015, they finally made things official and dated for the next 3 years.
their relationship was smooth for the most part. they were in the honeymoon stage for the first 2 years. they never had any major fights. all arguments were never left unsettled. joo provided a soothing place for jin since he was usually stressed out from schoolwork, while jin provided a fun environment since joo was usually either doing schoolwork or writing her novel. the third year, they were apart most of the time since jin was preparing for his graduation and networking to find work.
their last anniversary was filled with lots of passion. jin knew he was going to have to leave her, so he thought giving her a night or two or three filled with pleasure would be something good to remember him by. he felt guilty about having to leave her behind, but he knew it would be worse to keep her hanging by a thread since he'd definitely be very busy with work. almost a month goes by with her not enjoying the foods she used to eat and her sense of smell had gotten stronger. to joo's dismay, their little 3-day rendezvous conceived a child (children, to be exact).
the breakup seemed straight out of a k-drama. jin hoped she would've taken the news of his opportunity a little better, but he understood where she was coming from. the time they spent together was the greatest love experience jin had. joo was distraught: how was she gonna raise a kid on her own.
aht! aht! no spoilers, gotta leave SOME things to the imagination.
