When I went to Seoul for the summer, I never expected to meet him. I only wished for one thing then: to be able to take a solo trip to South Korea before I move to Japan for good. I wanted to explore the markets in Hongdae, the Han River in Gangnam, the Gyeongbokgung palace—literally all of the spots where my favorite dramas were shot.
But when our eyes met, I immediately knew.
It was the right place. It was the right time. I was about to spend my vacation with the right guy. It just hurt to know that it wasn't meant to last forever.

Rule #1: Define his status. There are two kinds of guys: one is unreachable (out of your league) and the other is reachable (kaya pang pantayan kahit papaano). Kapag unreachable siya, kalimutan mo na. Hanggang pangarap na lang 'yan, girl. Pero kapag reachable siya, malaki pa ang pag-asa mo.

But even if her brain is telling her not to fall for the charms ng isang lalaking alam niyang hindi marunong mag-commit, paano kung hindi sumusunod ang kanyang puso? Uubra pa ba ang rules na pilit niyang sinusunod, or is she just setting herself up for heartbreak?

And as egotistical as he can be, Maxine can't deny the fact that he's also the cutest boy she's ever seen, and the chemistry between them is electrifying, onstage and offstage.
