Why do y'all like Erwin Kim so much? I'm genuinely asking because I'm a writer (and an Asian male YA one at that) and I want to be able to determine what separates him from other teen love interests that may come off as creepy or abrasive. After all, while I'm glad for positive Asian male representation, he still falls into the "guy pines after girl until girl finally realizes he's the one" trope.
So, why do you like his character? Is it because Hayden Szeto is oh-so-charming? ANSWER ME, LETTERBOXD, BECAUSE I WANT TO KNOW
