Answer Me 1994: A Special Finale Discussion by Couch-Kimchi:
Episode 20 was a big blow for me because I really saw how the story came about in this episode. Watching it with subtitles really had a huge impact, not to say that it didn’t stir my emotions already. My initial assumptions had a new light, seeing how each moment comes in full view. It brought a different kind of experience that made me think otherwise. It is a hard pill to swallow at first. But don’t let yourself miss out on the story because of this.
Now a simple surprise for you all. I’m not going to do this alone. As you already know, I am a biased Chil Bong shipper. So just to balance this post and to help us all understand the story much better, with a different point of view and amazing insights, I am writing this with a good friend whom I respect as a blogger herself
Answer Me 1994: Episodes 14 to 19 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
One more day and this drama will end! I’m really excited to watch the finale.
On that note, shall we focus on the story and set aside the shippers war?? Oppa and Chil Bong respect each other so much to even compete for Na Jung. She isn’t a prize to be won here. I know that being on either side brought tension and less excitement to some viewers. Personally, I avoid staying at threads because it also influence me. Just to stay within the story, and enjoy it more, let me share with you a view from where I am. Biases aside. I love Oppa so much I’m not going to trash talk him. He doesn’t deserve that, even if I’m on Team Chil Bong.
What can we do?? The writer is detailed, so detailed in fact that everything we’ve watched has a reason why it is placed there

I just love this couple. There’s something really gratifying in the whole Superman–Clark Kent duality of doing something for the person you love, then keeping your cover by putting up a different facade entirely. It’s interesting that Min-joon’s facade is actually his natural personality—gruff and crotchety—and yet it’s becoming a mask more than anything. As he explains, things are changing, and not just in an emotional way, with his impending interstellar voyage stirring some physical changes as well. Or is it? What else could it be? Stuff to wonder 2about.

RECAP: FIFTH RECORD
Min-joon saves Song-yi from falling overboard, and as he puts her to bed, she pulls him down to her to give him a kiss. She murmurs, “You’ve gone crazy,” but it’s more to herself than to him, believing herself to be dreaming him up. She hushes him from speaking and sighs, “Yeah, I was too lonely all this time and it’s been hard on my body. I’m even dreaming up sexy dreams now. It’s time I married. Hormones are honest.”Drifting off to sleep, Song-yi curls into Min-joon’s coat for warmth—the one he’s wearing, which pulls him even closer to her. Looking completely out of his element (well, even more than he is, for being an alien and all), Min-joon carefully extricates himself. As soon as he exits, he overhears scary hyung Jae-kyung confirming with his secretary that “it” has been completed, without witnesses, and that if not for somebody being greedy, he wouldn’t have had to do this
Epik High member Tablo recently opened up about his late father.
In the latest episode of “Superman Returns,” the artist and his daughter Haru visited the cemetery. Tablo’s father sadly passed away in March last year after a lengthy battle with cancer. While paying a visit to her grandfather’s grave, Haru placed a beautiful flower bouquet on the stone and showed him a handmade card with her favorite fish drawn on it. Even though she could not see her grandfather, Haru directed her heartwarming words at the sky, hoping that he will hear what she has to say.
During an interview with the producers, Tablo could not hold back his emotions, “I miss him the most whenever I have good news. I call my relatives when ‘Superman Returns’ airs, and I also want to call my father and my father-in-law, but I can’t call my father

This week brought two more solid “Man from the Stars” episodes. Do Min Joon’s past connection to Chun Song Yi is slowly being revealed, creating a rich backdrop to complement his present actions. Song Yi remains a strong, yet struggling character as she deals with a variety of issues ranging from sickness to even a murder case. I love how despite Min Joon’s commitment to noninterference, he keeps getting dragged into Song Yi’s complicated life
EPISODE 6 RECAP by drama beans
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
Our dramas had a bad case of the Monday blues as there was no increase for any of the three primetime dramas.
MBC’s Empress Ki continued its reign as number one, but did drop a bit from its previous ratings of 18.8 percent.
SBS’ A Warm Word stayed where it was with 8.6, while KBS’ Prime Minister and I dropped to 5.9, returning to its first episode ratings.
On the variety side, however, KBS’ Hello saw an increase from 8.0 percent to 8.7. SBS’ Healing Camp also went up from 5.9 to 6.9 percent.

1. MBC Empress Ki 17.3
2. SBS A Warm Word 8
I totally wasn’t intending to write up the brand-new reality show Rain Effect, but I fired up the first episode out of curiosity and immediately got sucked into its fun, funny vibe. (Trust me, I wasn’t looking for another thing to recap!) It’s been a while since we’ve done a Variety Roulette; nothing like a little Rain to merit a comeback.
These kinds of reality-docu shows aren’t by any means new, but it’s not often you get one with a star as big as Rain. (And I’m sure I’m not the only one who had a brief flash to the Jeon Ji-hyun character doing one in the newly premiered drama You From Another Star.) True, he hasn’t been as big in recent years as he once was at the height of his pop-star fame (the mid-2000s were SO all about Rain), even if you factor for his two-year army-duty absence, but he’s certainly achieved enough to have solidified his place as a lasting star in the K-pop firmament
Basketball: Episode 18 FINAL EPISODE RECAP by Drama Beans
San ends up finding a pin he gave his mother in the forest and cries now that the reality of her death has come crashing down.
Meanwhile, Takeshi’s dad tells him that he’s taken care of things so that Takeshi will end up playing in the finals (even though his team lost). But their talk is interrupted when San bursts into the house wielding a bat, smashing everything he can before he demands to know where his mother is.
Takeshi’s frightened, but asks San, “Do you have any proof? Do you have any proof I killed her?” This pushes San over the edge as he starts beating the living daylights out of Takeshi until he’s hauled off by the house servants
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
A secret never stay hidden forever, the truth always prevails. No matter how hard people are trying to hide their secrets, their problems, sooner or later, people will discover them. For Jae Hak and Eun Jin; they know they cannot hide their relationship forever; they’re not naive but obviously they don’t realize that Mi Kyung has already found out about their “humane relationship”. People say the quiet ones usually are the ones who’ll attack and cause extensive damages; so they’d better get ready because Mi Kyung will do anything she can to “torture” them.

One Warm Word Episode 1 Recap by Beatuscorner:
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
Prime Minister and I Episode 2 Recap by Dramabeans:
The ruse begins, and Episode 2 gives us a chance to enjoy the inherent awkwardness in the Odd Couple match-up of two people who just don’t see each other in That Way. At least, not yet, and I’m content to let that play out over time—these two have enough likable charm that I feel pretty confident that I’ll buy the romance once it swings around, but don’t need it to come blazing out of the gates. Not while we have comedy to mine, and there’s certainly plenty of opportunity for that in this setup. I’m particularly fond of the forced smiles Lee Beom-soo has to slap on his face, which are hilariously stilted, and wouldn’t want to trade those for anything.
EPISODE 2 RECAP
Yul pulls Da-jung around the corner just in time to avoid being spotted by the nosy Reporter Byun
Prime Minister and I - Episode 1 Recap by Dramabeans:
Next in the KBS rom-com lineup is Prime Minister and I, whose light and breezy tone took me by surprise. I knew to prepare myself for the cute, but I didn’t expect it to also stir the heartstrings in the first hour. There’s promise and potential in a story that moves fairly quickly that contains both heartwarming and funny notes. And damn, a prime minister has never looked this good.
Even though Prime Minister and I took in last place at 5.9% against its competitors (Empress Ki [♥] led the pack with 20.2% and A Warm Word followed with 6.8%), maybe a contract marriage is just the kind of hijinks medicine I need.
EPISODE 1 RECAP
We open at a banquet hall where preparations are underway, leading up to the arrival of our hero, Prime Minister KWON YUL (Lee Beom-soo) and his wife, NAM DA-JUNG (Yoon-ah), who greet the roomful of dignitaries with a smile
Running Man Episode 175 Recap by Dramabeans:
Who knew that two suspects could be so darn adorable and that being charismatic was a crime? Our cast is on a mission to clear in their names in this escape race that brings us more laughs than tears. They’ll need to use their smarts, strength, and their skills (sometimes lack thereof) to fight for their freedom. ‘Cause no one ever said that would be easy.
EPISODE 175. Broadcast on December 8, 2013.
We start off in prison where our cast members are held captive for their hilariously absurd “crimes,” like Jae-suk’s compulsion to dance whenever there’s music playing or Jong-kook’s uncontrollable urge to coach others
Answer Me 1994 Episode 16 Recap by Dramabeans:
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.
