JaeEon is tired of dating but wants to have a flirt.

He has a romantic voice and is so handsome that everyone takes a glimpse of him in the streets. Once you've fallen for this handsome and talented man, you cannot leave out of his magical vibes.

First I just want to say Bravo! This drama is absolutely beautifully made I am loving every moment - it's art in every sense of the word. However I really need to know, what is the song at the end of episode 2 and beginning or episode 3 kissing scene? It is so beautiful but I cannot find any mention of it anywhere. I have re watched that part several times just to hear the song.... If it is not released yet please tell me when it will be and who the artist is. Thank you

The name of the song you’re looking for is “love me like that” by Sam Kim. I was struggling to get it too. 🙂 enjoy !
