He says, "Contrived witty banter?"
She replies, "Contrived witty banter."
"Contrived witty banter."
"Contrived witty banter."
He pauses. He leans in. "Contrived witty banter."
She shakes her head vigorously. She doesn't want these feelings to cloud her reason. She collects herself, regroups, gives him a sly look and says, "Contrived witty banter."

To all those wondering why people have a problem with the casting of this movie:

On the surface it may seem that the people complaining are doing way too much and overly concerned with race but it’s more nuanced than that. Hollywood has a history of whitewashing characters of color that are written as black or Asian (as these characters were). Colorism, or the preference for mixed and lighter skinned people over those with darker skin is also a huge issue. The fact that in a story written about a fully Korean man and black Jamaican woman they found two actors that are half white is very telling that Hollywood still has a problem seeing people of color as attractive unless they’re mixed with white. It’s so rare to see fully Asian men and darker skinned black women in movies, let alone as romantic partners- so yes, the casting directors really dropped the ball on a great opportunity and gave us more of the same

Yes, I understand that this is an adaptation of the book and not meant to be a word for word replica. However, the reason why many people are upset that Daniel's actor is half korean is because his character is supposed to be a first gen child to korean immigrants. To change something like that is not only drastic, but also changes a lot about who his character initially is. Charles being half doesn't mean he doesn't count as 'asian' but it definitely clashes with the character of Daniel Bae.

That awkward moment when you realize that Charles Melton is 9 years older than Yara Shahidi
