Secret Love Dramabeans Final
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?
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.
The moment Dal-goo steps out of Da-jung’s house with her stolen prize money, he gets a call from Woo-jin. He’s a nervous mess over the phone, especially since Woo-jin continues to ask questions that make him uncomfortable.
So while he tries to pass his nervousness off in order to get off the phone as quickly as possible, Woo-jin knows exactly what went down. That’s why Dal-goo finds him waiting outside his apartment door before he gets home.
Caught red-handed, Dal-goo has no choice but to try and defend his actions—in his mind, Da-jung is better off being indebted to the show than his boss. Woo-jin disagrees, and Dal-goo switches to blaming him for being the reason Da-jung is still playing the game in the first place.
After Yoo-jin’s failed hypnotherapy session, he happens upon his uncle talking to Nae-il, making mention of his airplane accident. Uncle had assumed Nae-il knew since she was aware of his water trauma, but Yoo-jin is upset to have his secret revealed and leaves the house, pulling Nae-il along with him.
But the truth is out and there’s no use pretending she doesn’t know. Yoo-jin tells her of the plane crash that landed him in the sea, giving him a two-for-one trauma deal that prevents him from taking planes and boats. “It’s absurd, isn’t it?” he asks bitterly. “Go ahead, laugh.”
Almost at the end! *Sniff* Finale week is upon us, and it definitely starts to feel like we’re heading into the final stretch as we prepare to say goodbye to these characters and take a look back at how far they’ve come.
The downside is that the feeling is a bit bittersweet, and I’ve come to love everyone so much that I’ll be sad to not have any more of them to watch. The happier flipside to that, though, is that we gear up for some major payoffs as the big threads come together, ready for their happy finale.
SONG OF THE DAY
While this episode is about the big sales pitch by Sales Team 3, the real stars of this episode are the newbies, who are slowly becoming a cohesive unit. Newbie huddles are becoming more regular, as more workplace shit hits the fan and as more achievements come and go. They find their way, still get lost, and get criticized, but at least now they know that they’re not the only ones.
EPISODE 13 RECAP
A large, deserted building. The site looks abandoned, but deep inside the industrial space lies a spiffy hi-tech lair, lined with expensive computers and state-of-the-art gadgets. Somebody’s turned a dusty concrete box into a veritable bachelor pad.
Inside it, a young, fit man plays a game of virtual tennis (and gets his butt kicked by his computer opponent). We aren’t given a formal introduction yet, but for convenience’s sake let’s call him by name: SEO JUNG-HOO (Ji Chang-wook).
We open with a solemn-looking Kim Woo-bin (♥) asking someone off-screen if he wants to hear about a big deal that’s about to go down tonight. It involves a noble, ancient script, and he wants to swipe it for themselves. Does he want in?
“Yeah,” a stone-faced Kwang-soo flatly replies. That response has Woo-bin momentarily break character, then resumes to explain today’s “special” elimination method for their spy mission: find blank nametags and write the others’ names on them. None of the others will understand how they’ve been ousted.
Ki-joon rescues Bul-ja from the clutches of the drunk noraebang customer, but the man and his friend follow them outside and continue the fight. When he knocks Bul-ja to the ground, Ki-joon snaps and starts throwing punches, drawing the police. When a policeman asks to see Bul-ja’s ID, Ki-joon distracts them and yells for Bul-ja to run.
She does, but doesn’t get far in her high-heeled boots, and she trips and falls. A pair of shoes stop in front of her, and she looks up with an expression of abject terror on her face.
We start off this Christmas special by introducing our three guests who are here to promote their upcoming film How to Steal a Dog: actress Kang Hye-jung, Chunderella—… I mean, Lee Chun-hee and Korea’s “Mother” Kim Hye-ja.
We’ve seen Chun-hee here on this show before, although this would be a rare, if not first variety appearance for Hye-ja. If the preview clips are any indication, she ought to be a hoot and game for anything. Always a good indication in my book.
It’s a blustery cold morning as Day 2 breaks in Incheon. Prior to the opening, Seung-gi meets with Taek PD alone to receive his own secret mission: eliminate Chae-won and the Running Man cast members undetected. “This smells of betrayal,” Seung-gi breathes.
He’s at a clear disadvantage since the cast members know every in and out of nametag ripping in their four and a half year experience—thus, his special guest will be helping him out today. Enter Lee Seo-jin affectionately known as Seojinnie, whose first words are, “Why are there so many cameras in here?” and then “I really didn’t want to come.”
After a lengthy recap of the success of Yoomes Bond’s first two missions, we begin Jae-suk’s latest adventure today in Muju. He’s led, blindfolded, into a secret meeting with Taek PD, which can only mean one thing in Jae-suk’s head: he’s reassuming his role ofYoomes Bond.
However, today marks the beginning of the end: Jae-suk will pass on his trademark water gun to his successor whom he’ll train today. When Jae-suk starts to protest, Taek PD simply ignores him to finish his spiel that it’s Jae-suk’s job to teach the rookie Bond all of his tips and tricks. Ack, you can’t just bring back Yoomes Bond like that and then take his title away!
We pick up where we left off, with Kang-chul visiting Do-hee in the hospital, and Ho-gu overhearing their conversation, concluding with the epic “Use a condom, you bastard!” punch in the face. So satisfying.
Kang-chul is panicked to discover his nose bleeding and stumbles to the floor. Ho-gu hides his face and tries to run as soon as the elevator doors open, but Kang-chul grabs his legs. Before he fully runs away, Ho-gu angrily asks if Kang-chul is hungry, and then throws the buns he had been planning to give to Do-hee at Kang-chul, slipping in one final toss of one of the condoms he took from Ho-kyung before the doors close.
Now that the terrible secret is out, Chairman Go spills the whole story to Yi-seok — his father had started the fire with his lighter, and had saved his wife but didn’t know Il-seok was in the shed until it was too late. Yi-seok asks why Young-ji got the blame, and the chairman at least admits that she seemed guilty, as she was holding matches.
Nobody knew the truth until a drunken confession from Dad later, that he was the real culprit. The chairman agrees now that he shouldn’t have let Young-ji keep taking the blame once Dad confessed. He says that if he’d known Dad was going to spend the next twenty-three years being an absent drunken wastrel, he’d have made him stay and take responsibility.
On this brisk March morning, the guys note Ji-hyo’s absence the opening, which can only mean one thing: female guests. Time to meet today’s guests: EXID’s Hani (of that addictively catchy “Up & Down” song, actresses Nam Ji-hyun (What’s With This Family),Jung So-min (Big Man), and Yoon So-hee (Secret Door), rounded out by rookie idolYerin (GFriend).
Ri-jin shows Dr. Seok CCTV footage of the new alter, “Mr. X,” which shows a caped figure enter her room. She tells him how Perry Park left for good, and Dr. Seok replies that it’s possible the new alter arose in response. He says that Mr. X could either be a helper personality who will facilitate the treatment, or the opposite.
Do-hyun stops short when he finds his office occupied. In a magician’s cape and top hat, the new alter invites Do-hyun to open a briefcase. Do-hyun looks away in confusion, but when he looks back, the room is empty. Do-hyun, eyes wide, tells Chief Ahn that he thinks he saw Mr. X, in a bout of co-consciousness. His head rings sharply, and the chief anxiously takes him home.
It is 2005, near the end of the baseball season. Our main character HAN YEOL (Lee Dong-gun) is at his mother’s funeral, grieving with his father. He greets the guests dutifully, but when he receives a letter telling him goodbye, he goes running to search for the woman who wrote it.
Yeol leaves the funeral after seeing a baseball game on television. His father yells after him, blaming him for running around after “that woman” and reminding him that he isn’t the only one grieving. But Yeol walks out without saying a word.
We backtrack a little to Seo-jin confronting Chairman Dad, after Robin warns him that Dad is messing around in his (their?) love life. Dad shows Seo-jin a story about Robin’s recent interview cancellation, which has drummed up more interest over his mysterious hidden identity.
Chairman Dad doesn’t try to sugarcoat what he did: He asked Hana to leave, hoping he’d be able to put a stop to things before Robin decided to go public. Dad is meddling, but he asks astutely whom this relationship is for, if Seo-jin isn’t even the one that Hana likes. Ouch.
Ho-gu breaks down in great sobs at the thought that they may have sent Geum-dong away with bad people, as Do-hee hides her tears and Kang-chul sits stone-faced. Ho-gu grabs Coach and drags him out of the apartment to help him find Geum-dong, refusing to give up. Do-hee asks Kang-chul if he thinks those were bad people, but Kang-chul just asks in return if his answer would change anything.
Out in the street, Coach admits that he didn’t really know the adoptive parents, that he just met them at a cafe. Is he saying that he sold Geum-dong?? He tells Ho-gu that it wasn’t a physical cafe, but a website, and Ho-gu goes to an internet cafe to do some research.
