3 Ways Seo Kang Joon’s Bookstore In “I’ll Go To You When The Weather Is Nice” Brings Warmth To Viewers
In JTBC’s “I’ll Go To You When the Weather is Nice,” the Good Night Bookstore owned by Im Eun Seob (played by Seo Kang Joon) is a place that comforts anyone who comes across it.
Explaining the name of his bookstore, he said, “Eating well and sleeping well are more difficult than you think. Everyone’s having a hard time because they can’t do even those basic things, so I [opened this bookstore] hoping that people would eat and sleep well.”
Let’s find out the three ways that Good Night Bookstore offers a healing experience to characters and viewers alike.
Kind bookstore owner
Good Night Bookstore is a rare window to culture in the small countryside town of Buk Hyeon. One of its biggest charms is its owner Im Eun Seob who embodies the warmth of the bookstore.
He looks upon others in a heartwarming way and gives hot cups of coffee to visitors. The warm look in his eyes, friendly smile, and handsome looks make him the personification of spring.
There are many unique qualities to Good Night Bookstore, and one of them is the “keeping system.” If a visitor places a bookmark in a book while reading it, they can come back and continue reading at any time. This kind of method exists at bars for bottles of whiskey or wine and is a unique system that is being applied to books in the drama.
Im Eun Seob generously implemented this system so that people can comfortably visit Good Night Bookstore.
Special book club
Another heartwarming point in the drama is the special book club made up of bookstore owner Im Eun Seob, high school alumni Mok Hae Won (played by Park Min Young) and Lee Jang Woo (Lee Jae Wook), life of the party Im Hwi (played by Kim Hwan Hee), LED light fixer Bae Geun Sang (played by Lee Tae Hyung), emotional housewife Choi Soo Jung (played by Lee Sun Hee), aspiring rapper Kwon Hyun Ji (played by Chu Ye Jin), book lover Jung Seung Ho (played by Han Chang Min), and his grandfather Jung Gil Bok (played by Lee Young Suk).
People from varying ages and walks of life get together every week to talk about their favorite books. Every sentence they read out loud fills the room with emotion and warmth as well as the sound of their laughter. Seeing Mok Hae Won smiling again thanks to the book club members, viewers are commenting that they, too, want to become members of this book club.
“I’ll Go To You When the Weather is Nice” airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. KST.
