Setting: N.Y.C 27th and 7th avenue about 8:30pm in front of Dunkin Donuts.
So I’m standing in front of Dunkin Donuts with my Korean American friend David talking nonsense as usual. The thought of hot chocolate popped in my head which caused me to look in the huge picture window and BAM! HOT ASIAN SNEAK ATTACK!
Who: Sitting at a table was this drool worthy Asian guy. I couldn’t tell if he was Korean or Japanese because I am not kidding when I say this; he looked EXACTLY like Kim Jae Wook from ‘Coffee Prince’ (Still don’t know? Refer to Bitofabellys post ‘Best of Both Worlds:Kim Jae Wook’ filed under his name). This guy even had the same hair pulled back into a ponytail!Ok now here’s where it gets good! He was STARING at me and no I wasn’t freakin imagining it. This was a hardcore “I might be having a staring eye contest with you” stare session. David of course is like WTH and I’m all like “OMO! I NEED HOT CHOCOLATE!” So of course I walked in and this guy will not stop looking; I got my hot chocolate and lucky, lucky me guess where the napkins were? Oh yessss right next to his table! So I slowly walked over and he turned and looked at me; I grabbed my napkin and at that point my mind was racing but I couldn’t say anything!!! I spun around and David and I walked out when suddenly I reverted back to my 12 year old junior high self.
KrisE: DAVID! I have to go back and talk to him ummm I need an excuse, hurry think of one!
David: Umm I have to use the bathroom?
Perfect! So in we went again, mind you he was still watching me O.M.G! So David pretended to go to the bathroom and that was the start of the most awkward situation. I took a deep breath, walked up to him and said…
KrisE: excuse me? ( he didn’t hear me and I freaked, I was losing my confidence but I didn’t give up!) Excuse me?
Hot Asian Guy: Yes?
KrisE: ( err ummm everything went blank and the only thing that came to mind and flew out of my mouth was this) Oh um you look like this actor in the Kdrama Coffee Prince!
Hot Asian Guy: okay *blink, blink, stare, stare, dreamy swoonlicious gaze moment*
I just smiled and thought “Seriously? a Kdrama comparison?” So naturally I turned around and walked out. EPIC FAILURE!
Now I talked things over with my native Korean friend Jae earlier tonight at Starbucks, and he said he was def interested if he was staring at me that way. His reaction during my attempt to talk to him made Jae think the guy was limited in English and not freaked out over what I said. Good to know except what I said was really lame and I basically ran away! Tsk, Tsk.
What do you all think of this situation? Ever been in one similar? If you had blanked out what would have been your pickup line?
Oh yeah this whole thing has totally turned me off of Dunkin Donuts hot chocolate for a while.
