Emergency Couple Episode 7 - 8 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
This week, someone heard our prayers because not only is Jin Hee showing everyone what a great intern she is (girl haz mad skills) but there appears to be tiny flashes of jealousy from Chang Min. *hehehe* Are we going to get our wish and he falls for her first?
Tessieroo: What? Only one episode this week? Whyyyyy?
Leila: It’s because of the Sochi Winter Olympics. I bet every Korean are anticipating for Kim Yu Na’s performance in figure skating. One episode only this week and we know that hardcore fans of this series will savor this to pieces.
Tessieroo: I don’t know why I thought someone would catch her but nope, our girl falls flat on her face
These two episodes offered many an adorable moment for our lead couple, even giving us a glimpse of what their normal, happy life could look like. Now that Min Joon is ready to hold Song Yi close, he’s finally showing off more emotion. He’ll hold her hand, appear by her side when called, and may even drunkenly teleport into her bedroom. As his departure looms ever closer, he begins to make some important decisions about his future actions. What’s the use of an eternal life if he can’t be beside his loved one?
Min Joon and Song Yi’s Relationship Takes Center Stage
Romantic Highlights Include:
When Song Yi drags Min Joon back home due to his kiss-induced illness, she can’t help but pester him about his kissing weakness. Min Joon lays in bed doing his best to recover while Song Yi fires off question after question
These episodes are jam-packed with heart wrenching emotion. The future doesn’t look too bright, especially with Min Joon’s departure looming ever closer. His desire to push Song Yi away grows, but so does his hopeless dream of a happy and normal life with heri at his side. For better or for worse, I’ve become heavily invested in the well-being of these characters. Seeing both Song Yi and Min Joon struggle through their heartache has left me emotionally drained and dejected. Keep in mind these feelings are a testament to just how great this show is.
Why is My Heart Breaking?
Min Joon Rejects Song Yi’s Confession
Min Joon’s run in with the psychopath Jae Kyung’s poisoned needle reminded him just how strong his feelings for Song Yi have grown. He’s convinced he must do all that he can to end his connection before it’s too late to recover
2014 may have begun more than a week ago now, but people are undoubtedly still writing 2013 on applications, papers, and such, aren"t they? The transition is never as easy, plus it is always nice to look back at the past year and sum it up so you can move onto the next with a fully refreshed mindset.
This is why allkpop writers alim17 and jennywill collaborated to put together some of the biggest trends of 2013. Check them out below!

Dramas that deal with the supernatural
We think it"s fairly safe to say that 2012 was pretty saturated with time traveling, particularly between the modern era and something more like the Chosun Dynasty
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
Chi-ho proposes, San interrupts, and the factory grandma makes it her goal in life to sing San’s praises so that Shin-young doesn’t have a chance to give her yea or nay on the marriage.
Chi-ho elects to wait while the grandma drags Shin-young with her and a few other workers to see a doctor, and it’s only after they get a checkup that Shin-young hears that the surgery for Bong-soon’s father has already beenpaid for.
And who else should be the benefactor but Chi-ho, who Bong-soon graciously thanks while Shin-young bites her lip nervously. He tells her that he’s going to visit his father to receive his blessing for their marriage, which only makes Shin-young more uncomfortable as her eyes keep darting between him and San
Prime Minister and I: Episode 1 RECAP by Drama Beans
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.
But there’s a different story that lies beneath those adoring smiles as the power couple turns to each other… and exchange looks of distaste.
An imagined Matrix style fight scene points to a more tense and hostile relationship between them. And while the world may regard her husband as a respected public figure, our heroine doesn’t share in that opinion because, well, they’re in a contract marriage
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
Ajumma is seen running on the street calling someone with the narration in the background that coming to the past changes nothing for her in the future. Kim Shin signs his name on the contract and is ready to start working for NTN the next day. NOOOO!
Meanwhile Mi Rae finds out Se Joo was the person who saved her from the ocean. She wonders why he has never told her and that’s because he doesn’t want her to see him as someone who saves her but a normal man who approaches her. He holds up a ring that he has been carrying around for awhile waiting for the right time to give it to her. Se Joo asks Mi Rae sincerely: “Will you accept my heart?”
He puts the ring on the 4th finger of her left hand and while I rage, she actually looks touched
Kdrama Answer Me 1994 Episode 10 Recap by DramaBeans “It might be the last”
It’s 2013, and we’re still watching the neverending wedding video. This time we get as far as the daddy-daughter walk down the aisle, at the end of which Dad has this hilarious kneejerk moment, refusing to hand Na-jung over to the bridegroom(’s stand-in). That’s cute.
Thirty-nine-year-old Na-jung sends her hubby a sly wink across the room, and of course each of our bachelor candidates reacts to it. Is anybody else tired of this one-trick pony joke?
1994. Dad’s baseball team wins the Korean Series, after which he prepares celebratory liquor to drink on their next victory. To which Mom asks, “Who knows when you’ll win again?” LOL.
“The last time always happens without the realization that it’s the last time
MH thinks back on when YJ tried to explain that the car had only hit that barrel and that she had cleaned that barrel up herself, wanting to move it off the road. MH remembers that and orders GS to find the truck driver and figure out what it was that happened the day. MH looks at JH’s picture and then YJ’s and sheds a few tears AND THENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
WE GO BACK TO THE KISS
He kisses her once as YJ sheds a few tears. A momentary silence ensues before MH stands up and tries to explain himself, but YJ is adamant and says: “It’s okay. Mistakes happen.”
He stops her quickly again and says, “It’s not a mistake.” YJ falters for a second before walking away and thinks about what happened
Kdrama The Heirs (Inheritors) Episode 9 Live Recap Tan is waiting outside the door of his house for ES. He gives her back her phone, and lightheartedly whines that he got hurt and was scolded by JS, wanting her attention. But ES just looks worried. Still, without saying anything, she tries to go in, but Tan stops her. ES pleads, “Don’t hold me and don’t block me. Don’t wait for me from now on.” She tries to go in again, but Tan turns her back. ES pleads again. She doesn’t want to be recorded on the security cam. Tan: “That darn CCTV.” HAHAHAHA! ES reminds him that he is the one who warned her about the camera. Tan yells, “What I do told you, what I warned you about…Did you ever really listen?”Won appears and sees Tan and ES together, Tan holding onto ES. ES bows and hurriedly goes in. Won motions for Tan to move, not saying anything about what he just saw
Warning- there are spoilers for the first ten episodes of ‘To the Beautiful You‘ ahead!
Due to what is either poor planning or unfortunate timing, the idol-laden KBS drama ‘To the Beautiful You’ has been struggling to gain viewers, consistently coming last in broadcast ratings for its Wednesday and Thursday night slots.This may be due to premiering during the final episodes of the wildly-popular ‘Bridal Mask‘ (KBS2), and now running at the same time as another popular drama, ‘Arang and the Magistrate‘ (MBC).In addition, this drama runs late at night, even though it is targeted at a younger demographic of viewers and should probably be playing a little earlier in the evening.
That said, the show isn’t bad, and if you like the whole girl-disguises-herself-as-a-boy storyline and can deal with blatant product placement, big gaps in logic (the scene where Daniel conveniently forgets he can speak Korean just baffles me), a couple of massive plot holes (Jae Hee walking away untraumatized from an attempted rape being one if not the worst), and an overbearing soundtrack (seriously, the music almost never stops!) you’ll probably enjoy this story
