So we’ve officially caught the Descendants of the Sun fever, and there’s no denying the fact that Song Joong Ki has successfully won over the entire K-Drama sphere with his role as the ever-so-suave solider Yoo Si Jin. The chap can go from being as cute as a cinnamon roll, to looking all sexy and badass with a gun in hand – but what really made viewers go weak at the knees was how he managed to charm the socks off our leading lady Song Hye Kyo (Kang Mo Yeon) with the most romantic pick-up lines. Here’s a look at Captain Yoo’s smoothest moves to date.
#1 The best way to break the ice on a first date.
Kang Mo Yeon: “When I come to the movie theatre, this is the moment when I get most excited. Right before they turn off the lights.”
Yoo Si Jin: “Out of all the moments in my life, I am the most excited right now. Being with a beautiful lady right before the lights turn off.”
#2 Being an overprotective boyfriend… before even being her boyfriend.
Yoo Si Jin: “Put this [jacket] on. I can see through your clothes.”
Kang Mo Yeon: “Why did you give this to me only now?!”
Yoo Si Jin: “Because I’ve seen everything already, and I don’t want anyone else to.”
#3 Cracking a joke in the middle of a minefield apparently works very well.
Yoo Si Jin: “The only way to beat a minefield is to go slow. Try to relax, and enjoy the sexy view [of my behind].”
Kang Mo Yeon: “It’s moments like this where your jokes give me strength.”
Yoo Si Jin: “The joke was me telling you to relax. The rest is a fact.”
#4 Shutting her up with a kiss – never fails.
Yoo Si Jin: “Are you jealous?”
Kang Mo Yeon: “If she’s that pretty, you should’ve dated her.”
Kang Mo Yeon: “What are you doing?”
Yoo Si Jin: “I’m shutting your mouth in a sexy way. You can try talking again.”
#5 ‘Pretty’ is the magic word.
Yoo Si Jin: “You’re different in the morning and the afternoon…”
Kang Mo Yeon: “How am I different?”
Yoo Si Jin: “In the morning, you’re very pretty.”
Yoo Si Jin: “In the afternoon, you’re awfully pretty.”
#6 Never knew bombs could come in handy in this situation.
Yoo Si Jin: “Are you crying right now?”
Kang Mo Yeon: “Is it okay in there? Do you need anything?”
Yoo Si Jin: “I need C4 or RDX.”
Kang Mo Yeon: “What is that?”
Yoo Si Jin: “Explosives. I was okay until now, but I suddenly want to break the door and get out. Because of somebody.”
#7 Be thirsty for her, literally.
Yoo Si Jin: “Dispatched troops are not allowed to drink.”
Kang Mo Yeon: “You look like you want to drink it very badly.”
Yoo Si Jin: “I can find another way to drink it.”
#8 Nothing like a compliment to make her feel like a million bucks.
Yoo Si Jin: “Don’t be embarrassed just because I found out that you like me. Even so, it doesn’t change that I like you more.
Yoo Si Jin: “By the way, you look pretty today.”
Kang Mo Yeon: (Blushes) “Stop it!”
#9 How to confess your love to a girl and not get rejected.
Yoo Si Jin: “After kissing you without permission…”
Kang Mo Yeon: “I told you not to bring it up first-“
Yoo Si Jin: “What should I do? Should I apologise…”
Yoo Si Jin: “Or should I confess my love?”
#10 And the finale…
Yoo Si Jin: “Will we part ways soon? Is your name on the list of people returning to Korea?”
Kang Mo Yeon: “No.”
Yoo Si Jin: “No?”
Kang Mo Yeon: “I’m staying.”
Yoo Si Jin: “Why? It can’t be because of me.”
Kang Mo Yeon: “It is. I’m staying because of you. I want to spend more time with you. I think I just confessed my feelings, should I apologise?”
Yoo Si Jin: “How do you think I’ll respond?”
Smooth, Song Joong Ki. Very smooth.
