So our married couple spends their first night together with Yul staying up to work while Da-jung sleeps. The following morning, Da-jung encourages a reluctant Man-se to attend kindergarten. She promises him a playdate, but a stern word from his father gets him to grudgingly head off to school.
Calling her a worry (geok-jung), Yul sighs in exasperation and removes a note attached to Da-jung’s back (another one of Na-ra’s pranks). He tells her to stay out of trouble since worrying about national affairs gives him enough of a headache and to stop wearing the hanbok.
He also assigns her to keep a daily log on his children—their thoughts, concerns, behaviors, and so on
“Man from the Stars” Episode 2 Recap by Drama Beans We begin back in the Joseon timeline, when our hero Min-joon is still a recent arrival on Earth. He and fellow aliens—dressed in vaguely futuristic, androgynous black clothing—pluck specimens from the forest and pack them away for study. These aliens are on a research mission, it seems.All of a sudden, time comes to a standstill in the village; the townspeople freeze mid-activity as a man arrives in the marketplace. It’s Min-joon, now dressed like a Joseon aristocrat, taking advantage of the suspended animation to freely observe the goings-on before letting time resume around him.Min-joon sidles up to a table where a con man is scamming people with the ol’ ball-and-cups game. Min-joon can see the cheating with his super-keen vision, and uses his telekinetic powers to keep the next round fair
Master’s Sun Week Six (Episode 11-12) Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
Joong Won really raised his stake. Not only is he risking his heart but his life as well, for love. It’s refreshing to see a man become better, in a series its mostly the woman we see changing. Here in Master’s Sun, I love how Joong Won’s love is profound than any man could possibly make a woman feel. It’s all out, withholding nothing. That’s why seeing how the week ended hurts so bad. He’s the one loving more, is he going to suffer much from it too?
Take heart everyone!!
We are in the most exciting phase. Surely Joong Won won’t just leave Gong Shil behind, hurting for him alone. This is one roller coaster ride I won’t mind repeating, even if it makes my heart stop beating for seconds or take my breathe away
Master’s Sun Week Five (Episode 9-10) by Couch-Kimchi:
Week Five is amazingly awesome! Yup, too much sweetness and heart combined. I’m not gagging nor complaining. We have progressed into something beautiful. Joong Won had me smiling all throughout and I can’t contain myself. He has transformed into a selfless man, so understanding and open. Even with a fiancee scare, love just find its way somehow.
When love is found, you won’t be able to let it go. Let’s all reminisce about the week and let love just scream, “Yes it’s you.”
We all need someone to just be there, especially when we needed it most. Gong Shil did not leave Joong Won’s side as he contemplates and think about his own hurt, RE: Hee Joo
Another year when a sure Hong Sister’s drama will be shown. 2013, will you be the year when the sister’s can redeem themselves?
Strike two for the Hong’s since I was literally heartbroken (Best Love) and disappointed (Big) with their last two dramas. Having said that, I kinda lowered my expectations on their new drama and will let it be. This is how I move on. Besides, everyone deserves a chance, crossing my fingers they do deserve it.
I find the first week really engaging and heartfelt. I’m so easy to please you know. Without further a do, let’s dig in!
Tae Gong Shil (Gong Hyo Jin) is your regular house keeper and for the nth time, she was again asked to clean Room 404
I did it again, I put myself on a ship that will never set sail. It's a sad day when I love David to bits, but know he will always be friend zoned by Bo Tong. I hope he gets a happy ending, someone this sweet needs someone who will truly like him and all his quirkiness. I also have to say how gorgeous Han Chae Young is in this drama.
Episode 5 Recap by k-dramacentral: Ma Te and Yu Ra are inside drinking coffee and he wonders who made her cry. She asks him how it was spending all that time without his father. She tells him that Hong Ran is planning on sending her 6 year old daughter abroad to study. He just says Hong Ran is scary while Yu Ra apologizes for making him worry, but she had no where else to go. Ma Te tells her that he'll find both of their places soon and gets up to give her more coffee
After an influx of marriage/affair/divorce dramas this year, my expectation level for SBS newest Mondays & Tuesdays drama One Warm Word (Kind Words) was extremely low. Moreover, the writer’s previous drama Can We Get Married was pretty hard to digest (for me) that I stopped watching on episode 7, it was too realistic for my liking. So I embraced the first episode of One Warm Word with extreme caution (ha!). Surprisingly, the first episode surpassed my expectations – it quickly introduced the main characters and their different perspectives (& approaches) towards marriage, divorce and affairs
Crossover episode! Our timeline reaches 1997, which means that the Answer Me 1997 and Answer Me 1994 worlds collide for some meta fun. It’s also Binggeure’s episode to shine, and we get a really welcome glimpse into what life was like for him while we were busy paying attention to everyone else.
EPISODE 16: “Love, Fear: Answer Me 1997″
Dinner arrives at Housewarming Party 2013, and everyone gags at Samcheonpo and Yoon-jin’s show of aegyo spoon-feeding. Haitai wonders how they can still be so cutesy after four kids, while they just challenge him to try it with his wife. He and Na-jung turn to look at each other and shake their heads
With all the husband hullaballoo, sometimes the secondary characters feel a bit too secondary, but then they’ll step to the fore with something really sweet. It’s easy to get caught up in the Oppa-Chilbongie wars (omg you guys are killing me with them), but this drama has a lot more to offer than fanwars and shipping, which is actually why I think it’s doing itself a disservice to be so coy with the “Who is he?” gimmick. Because when the show is all about the small, revealing character moments, it’s totally got my heart.
EPISODE 15: “The people who changed me, Part 2″
It’s January 1996, and Na-jung is caught in a fierce tug-of-war with Garbage in the front yard… because she’s trying to sneak him into her room at night and he’s resisting
It’s the height of happiness and the depths of heartache, as one suitor takes a step closer, which invariably means the other gets left behind. The fallout turns out to be harder for my heart to handle than expected, especially when impending separation turns a simple goodbye into one that might be forever. Say it ain’t so!
EPISODE 14: “The people who changed me, Part 1″
2013. The houseguests start getting hungry, and the boys prod Binggeure to pay for some food (I’m taking that as a good sign that he’s successful). He pretends not to know what they’re talking about, so they call out Chilbongie next, who defers to Garbage because he’s eldest
With hit drama The Heirs and kickass film Friend 2 keeping him busy, Kim Woo Bin is hot stuff these days, but what are people most interested in about the star?
We did a simple search on Korea’s portal sites to see what keywords come up in relation to Kim Woo Bin, and below are our finds.
That’s the first word that pops up next to Kim Woo Bin’s name, and we’re not talking cars. It’s the Konglish term for the lined bomber jacket, one of the many clothing items seen on Kim Woo Bin’s character Young Do on The Heirs.
In addition to “mustang,” “fashion,” “shoes” and “coat” are among the most searched words related to Kim Woo Bin. It makes sense that the star, who got his start as a model, is a fast rising style icon, and many of the keywords related to Kim Woo Bin have to do with his wardrobe choices
Answer Me 1994 Recap - Episodes 9 to 13 - by Couch-Kimchi:
Honestly I’m really having a lot of trouble writing the episodes at hand. My emotion is taking over me again. Now, I’ll put motion first and just write.
It seemed that 1994 is a very long year, especially for our boys. A lot of lingering thoughts abound. Two hearts are in the frying pan. Or shall I say, I’m swimming in a very dangerous water once again. I don’t know if ever I will survive this. Then again in this kind of situation, I believe its all about the journey. Loving someone badly, the way I do with Chil Bong, is not something to regret. So let me share my heart with you instead. A heart that is open enough to just love, no matter the end game.
I’m continually amazed at the story progression and the pace of this drama – things move quickly. That suits me just fine – I hate repetition, flashbacks upon flashbacks, long silent staring and no character development. Having said that, I don’t expect much just yet – it’s still very early. In episode 7, our creepy brother Ki-Se “smells” that Ki is a woman and rips open her shirtt. He orders her dressed and brought to his tent, while Byung-Soo stares at Ki like he can’t believe it. Two of the Goryeo slaves are brought in to dress her up and apply make-up. She’s brought to Ki-Se’s quarters and he’s momentarily speechless at her beauty. She’s forced to her knees, her hands tied.
Ki immediately scouts the room, finding the location of the cross-bows
Empress Ki/Hwatu/기황후 started last week after MBC’s previous sageuk drama (and sadly snooze-fest) “Goddess of Fire Jung Yi”. I consider this a one-off recap for now since Empress Ki will be 50 episodes long and I don’t know if I can hold out that long… Sageuks in general tend to lose me after the first 16 episodes
“Medical Top Team” Episode 1 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
I haven’t seen much posted about MBC’s Wed/Thurs drama “Medical Top Team” (which is up against “Secret” and “Heirs”) so I decided to check it out for myself. I was excited Joo Ji Hoon is back in dramaland but I hate his hair in this one. Whoever the stylist is for Ji Hoon (and Woo Bin in “Heirs”) that believes helmet-hair is a good look should be immediately fired – both guys look horrible. But that’s totally off topic and my own personal opinion. Medical Top Team turned out to be intriguing enough that I find myself looking forward to the next episodes.
It opens on a swanky party given by hospital board members to introduce the new Assistant Director: Shin Hye Soo (Kim Young-Ae) and to outline her idea of putting together a “Top Medical Team” of doctors within Kwanghye University Hospital
Answer Me 1994: Episode 14 by Drama Beans: “The people who changed me, Part 1″
2013. The houseguests start getting hungry, and the boys prod Binggeure to pay for some food (I’m taking that as a good sign that he’s successful). He pretends not to know what they’re talking about, so they call out Chilbongie next, who defers to Garbage because he’s eldest. Heh.
So Garbage gets up to get his wallet (interesting), and then Na-jung hands the folder of takeout menus to Chilbongie, who calls to make the order (iiiinnnnnteresting). Garbage tells him to add some soju to the order, only to have Na-jung scream at him for drinking too much.
Back in the summer of 1995, we rewind to Oppa swooping in for The Kiss. Pssh, as if we didn’t all re-watch that a thousand times last week
Mi Rae’s Choice: Episode 16 Recap We’ve travelled all the way with our characters to the end of the line, but whether the journey is ultimately rewarding or even satisfying for characters and viewers alike… is up in the air.The final episode brings us back full circle as we once again consider the role of human choice in fate’s dictates. The running theme of “hope” also continues to drive Mi Rae’s motivations in her fight for her career and her dreams, but I find myself left with more questions and loose ends than answers, coupled with the unsettling feeling that hope is more often empty than it is fulfilled. EPISODE 16 (FINAL) RECAPEveryone waits with baited breath as Shin pauses for a seeming eternity over his prompts: Will he defy his superiors by reporting on the deadly humidifier sterilizing agent or will he remain quiet and choose self-preservation?Gathering himself, Shin finally begins to report… and it is not on the humidifier story, but on a more mundane matter
The Heirs Episode 19 Synopsis and preview YD yells at Tan, “If you miss her, then go see her.” Tan replies he isn’t going anymore. “You can have her.” YD grabs Tan by the collar and pulls him up. He demands, “What did you say? Do you want to die? Do you have the right to break down?” Tan says, ”No, he doesn’t.” Looking at Young Do tearfully, Tan says, “I can’t do it, Young do.” Angry, YD throws Tan down and walks away. Tan struggles to get up, but he can’t.Won notifies his dad of Yoon’s new position. Dad scoffs that Yoon is only capable of reaching that high. Won and Dad go back and forth through the story of Guan Yu from the Three Kingdoms. Dad tells Won he can go now, but Won says he didn’t come to see dad
EXO fans! Are you ready to become extra jolly this season with EXO’s upcoming special winter album?
Get ready because you’re one step closer to the “Miracles in December” that will be released on December 5! SMTOWN recently uploaded the “Miracles in December” highlight medley onto their Youtube channel, giving us a taste of what’s to come in EXO’s first ever holiday album.
From the clip, we are able to distinguish five different tracks. The first track has a mid-tempo beat with a sweet guitar riff. The lyrics go, “When I see you, tears come / Like a fool, I can’t say anything / Tell me Merry Merry Merry Christmas / Hello, are you well?”
The next track has a stronger sound with faster beats and we can hear some rapping in it as well as the word “gentleman” in the lyrics
The girls of 2NE1 take you behind the scenes of their latest music video of their hottest single, “Missing You“! Ever since its release, “Missing You” has been sweeping across the charts and earned praise from fans and support from fellow artists like Lee Hyori. Aside from the initial buzz about CL‘s scene in the music video, the bittersweet lyrics and accordingly tasteful imagery have earned it a solid place among other 2NE1 hits like “Lonely.”
Since the clip does not come with subtitles, here is a brief summary of some of the things 2ne1 talks about while on set!
Adorable Sandara greets fans at the beginning of the clip, “We are currently on the set of the music video shoot for 2NE1’s ‘Missing You
