…she approaches Do Young, the husband of her bully, Yeon Jin. Getting close to him on purpose through the game of Go, she soon reveals her secret to him. This is where season one ends. As viewers anticipate season two, they discuss the possibility of a romance between Do Young and Dong Eun.

  • “Seeing how the actor acts, the character’s eyes and body just follow that person, and he is wide open to her. Looking at the body language, it’s 100% for sure, even if the character doesn’t realize it.”
  • “Look at his gaze. It’s impossible that there isn’t.”
  • “It’s so obvious LOL.”
  • “Of course.”
  • “His gaze is too romantic.”

From the original synopsis of the character, romance is also possible in the books for season two.

Do Young’s life has always been clear like the board of Go. My soldiers and the enemies. My family and other people’s families. Yes, or no. His world was so black and white that nothing blurry could enter. But someday, he began to be curious about this woman, who is blurry like a fog. He begins to chase her, like how the sunflower chases the sun. Do Young knows. In life and in the game, black always has the upper hand over white. He’s always held the black stones, but now, he’s holding the white.
