    1. I thought the translate is wrong somehow, from netflix I've watched yesterday until now something just doesn't add up. And then I realize. KMY said, the pen is so handsome. And in korean the word pen & fan get the same pronunciation and Gangtae heard it wrong, Gangtae thought it was " the fan is so handsome" 🤣🤣🤣

    2. The funny thing is, she didn't make him feel jealous on purpose. She just really wanted the pen so she'll do anything and even flirt to get it. Kangtae looks so cute being jealous

    3. No one asked but here is the thing.
      In Korean '팬이 멋있잖아' could mean both: "The fan was handsome" (his understanding) and "The pen was amazing" (her intention), because

      '팬' could mean fan(팬) or pen(펜), and Korean pronunciations are the same.
      '멋있다' can be translated into 'handsome' for a person and 'amazing' for a thing.
