Older brothers are appearing quite often, looking after and taking care of their younger sister wholeheartedly, to the extent that there is the thought ‘I wish he is my oppa’ when they are seen in a drama. Viewers are calling them ‘dongsaeng-babo(/idiot-for-younger-sibling)’ who doesn’t know anything outside of their younger sibling.
◆ ‘The Girl Who Sees Smells’ Park Yuchun & Kim So-hyeon
Park Yuchun and Kim So-hyeon worked together as brother and sister in SBS ‘The Girl Who Sees Smells’, which aired last year. A homicide detective who had lost his sense of smell and taste and cannot even feel pain with the shock of a tragic event, Choi Mugak(played by Park Yuchun) is an idiot-for-his-younger-sibling who terribly cherishes his little sister Choi Eun-seol(played by Kim So-hyeon).
Eun-seol gets murdered in an emergency room in the middle of having been hospitalized in a bus crash accident, that Mugak lived with determination to become a homicide detective so he can catch the culprit. We are able to tell this through a retrospective scene where Mugak and Eun-seol sets how much they are between loving brother and sister.
Mugak is extremely happy drawing a heart after seeing his little sister Choi Eun-seol shows off that she received the grand prize in a mathematics competition. He showed his affection for her to the max, saying, “My little sister. You did really well. You are the best, the best. So praiseworthy. Aigoo, my baby”. At this, Eun-seol grumbles, “Am I oppa’s daughter?”; and Mugak conveyed his overflowing love, “You are oppa’s daughter. It is only us two in the world so you are oppa’s daughter. Oppa will give Eun-seol away in marriage, and then I might go get married or not”.
In addition, Mugak had shown his boundless affection while together with Eun-seol, and this reflects Mugak’s earnestness to try to catch the culprit so he could obtain the ability to be more convincing in the drama.
