Despite this, D.O.’s character remains fond of Lee Young Ji, culminating in a heartwarming beach scene where he unexpectedly kisses her on the cheek. Lee Young Ji’s embarrassed reaction adds to the video’s cuteness, sparking widespread discussion online.

The cheek kiss has become particularly notable, contributing to the video’s viral status. Within just 24 hours, “Small Girl” surpassed 2 million views and continues to climb, reaching 2.16 million views as of 4 PM on the 22nd.

Expressing her joy, Lee Young Ji said, “I’m so happy. I feel like I can do even better next time. Thank you for listening.” She celebrated the video’s top spot on trending videos, saying, “Thank you! I’m over the moon.”
