Big Bang ♪ Tonight

Welcome back to The Romantic & Idol!

With first dates, missions, and travel to Jeju complete, the idols enjoyed a meal together... but now it's time to shake things up!

February 14th; eleven at night.

It's time for the Song Shuffle! After the girls are sequestered into different rooms, things seem to take a little longer than usual to begin- it's announced, eventually, that Simon seems to have come down with a bad case of food poisoning and as such he has been admitted to the best hospital in Jeju. This means that he's off the show, of course, and only three songs will be played for the Song Shuffle.

Ladies, listen to the songs linked in the comments one at a time, and reply to the comment if you think you would leave the room for that particular tune. After all four ladies have left comments, the gentlemen may reveal which song was theirs. If two women choose the same song, the man will choose one of them for the moonlight date by linking arms with them and leading them away. If you aren't chosen, you can either stay behind or set off on your own. The moonlight date can be anything you want! You can just wander around the area close to the pension, or head away from the shore for a late night dessert, even go to noraebang if your heart desires.

When everyone has returned, they'll take turns being interviewed by the staff for their Partner Choice. Once you've finished your moonlight date, please PM the crew with the name of the person you had the most fun with or want to learn the most about.

(Ladies, please also include in your message an image of the men's shirt of your choice for the Style Shuffle that will take place on the morning of day two!)

What happens now is up to the active players. Would you like me to continue modding, even though there's only two males and one female, or would you just like to wing it? No offense taken at all if you'd like me to step back. I admit I likely had my hopes set a bit high for this PSL and idea, but I want to thank everyone for the interest!

We still haven't heard back from Jinwoon at all, nor do we have Hyoyeon's shirt choice. Apologies for not posting this sooner, the crew seems to have come down with a bug of some sort. You both have until Thursday evening at 11:59pm EST to get back to us!

BoA ♪ Believe in Love (Acoustic)

Welcome to The Romantic & Idol!

Girls talked, and guys chatted before the application interviews. The men know the male half of the cast, likewise for the females. All that's left now is to start things off!

February 14th; noon.

It's time for your first dates! Based on the way everyone ranked the love songs from OSTs, the crew has paired you up and given you a vague idea of where you might meet this very special someone. Here are further details! (Hover for who is meeting where! Please keep in mind that your muse won't know who their date is until they meet face to face for the first time.)

Publique Bakery, Sangsu
Coffee Prince, Hongdae
Nakwon Musical Instrument Arcade, Insadong
Marronnier Park, Daehakro

Couples may feel free to wander the surrounding area if they tire of their original destination.

February 14th; two in the afternoon.

Everyone who has a phone gets a message from the crew. It's mission time! A surefire way to cure awkwardness, each couple needs to hold hands for at least a minute before heading to the airport.

February 14th; four in the afternoon.

It's time to take flight, hopefully Cupid has been helping you lovebirds out. You've known you were heading somewhere, but you didn't know where...

February 14th; nine in the evening.

After a flight to Jeju and a rather long, possibly mind numbing drive to the southern side of the island with a stop at the grocery store on the way, you arrive at what can only be described as paradise. Welcome to Breakfast at Tiffany's. The room layout is as follows:

Three rooms are attached to make up a suite of sorts. There is an ondol ocean view room in the center, complete with kitchen, dining area and bathroom. The bedroom in this room has had the beds moved out of it to be converted into a cozy, comfortable space where the interviews with cast members will take place. On either side of the ondol room there is a deluxe twin ocean view room. Instead of two twin beds, there are two sets of bunk beds and one single bed. Each room has its own bathroom. Men will stay in one, women will stay in the other. The suite is on the ground floor, giving access to a deck and the garden from each of the three rooms.

Make yourselves at home, and enjoy a meal cooked collaboratively!

(Song Shuffle, Moonlight Date, and Partner Choice information will be posted late Wednesday or early Thursday.)
