secret love korean drama recap
Now that feelings are getting mixed up with warring agendas, things start to get complicated in a good way, and more is left unsaid than ever before. Sadly for our heroine, even denial leads to hiccups, which means she either has to confess her feelings, or be stuck hiccupping for the rest of her life. Or until she stops finding Dal-po swoony. Yeah, good luck with that.Note: The recap for Episode 6 will be a little later than usual. ‘Tis a holiday here, and there is much turkey to be eaten.SONG OF THE DAYThomas Cook – “솔직하게” (Honestly)
EPISODE 5: “The king’s ears are donkey ears” After finding out about his father’s death in the middle of his job interview, Dal-po heads to the police station to claim the remains

Agh, they’re so cuuuuute. Now that our backstory is in place, the second episode actually brings our leads together onscreen, and I’m happy to say that their dynamic is adorable—their bickering relationship is funny and heartfelt, and I really like both characters. It was impossible to tell from the first episode alone if the show would reel me in, but by the end of this hour, they’ve got me. Last-place student Dal-po wins his first round of the TV quiz show, wiping the smirk off of the first-place champion and surprising everyone in their class. As the audience claps and the cameras turn to him, he narrates in voiceover that after suffering those cruel events with his family, he vowed to never set foot in a broadcast station or exchange words with anyone even remotely associated with a network
by Dramabeans: Yeongjo gives Sun a chance to be reinstated as prince-regent—all he has to do is meet the Qing envoys who are on their way and ready to declare war (over a naval skirmish with a Joseon fishing boat), and stop a war from happening. Oh, is that all?He makes it clear that taking on the task is a double-edged sword because if Sun succeeds, he does get to be regent again, but if he fails, he will forever be stripped of his rights to the regency. That means he’ll never practice politics ever again. Yeongjo makes sure to add that he won’t be lenient on him just because he’s his only son. I’m pretty sure no one here thought you would. But his point stings nonetheless—he’s happy to find a successor elsewhere.The extreme terms of the deal don’t dissuade Sun, and he agrees to take on the challenge to convince the Qing envoys without caving to their demands
The two boys in a crazy contest, winner takes all
Woo Hyun shows up on Sung Yeol"s doorstep, asking to be allowed to move in. Sung Yeol and the father leave. Later that night, Sung Yeol enters, falling down drunk. Woo Hyun puts a schnockered Sung Yeol to bed. In the morning, Woo Hyun is on the bed too and is pushed off, injuring his shoulder. Jae Seok"s lackey, Tae Ho, runs into classmate Joo Ah and decides to get revenge on the store owner for firing Joo Ah and shorting her on wages.
The security guard goes to the store where Joo Ah worked and collects her back wages. Sung Yeol"s father goes off and drinks when informed about Ji Hye"s loan that she used to pay for Woo Hyun"s shop
Sun bursts in to stop the torture, too late to save Ji-dam’s father. He confronts his father with threat of the maengui, now that he has possession of the original document, and demands a stop to the proceedings. Yeongjo just literally walks over the pile of bodies he’s just killed and leaves without sparing Sun a word.The father-son confrontation continues that evening, when Yeongjo laughs bitterly, asking if he’s to try to rule the nation while feeling on the hook to his son. Which is rather missing the point, honey, if you think Sun would be happy letting you rule while pulling your puppet strings.Sun says that he has no intention of pulling those kinds of dirty tactics, and then pulls out the maengui. Yeongjo’s eyes widen in shock… and then widen even more when Sun walks very deliberately… to the torch nearby… Korean SBS Drama Secret Door Episode 14 Recap What! I repeat, WHAT? Are you insane or is this a fakeout? Tell me this is a fakeout
Ji Hye paying her respects
Sung Yeol is devastated by the thought of his step mom being Woo Hyun"s absent mother. Tortured by the implications, he doesn"t show up at school and is ambushed by bullies. Sung Yeol fights back, but nearly faints in the attempt. Seul Bi finds him by now and backhugs him to prevent him collapsing. Jae Seok takes a pic of this and sends it to everyone. Woo Hyun angrily escorts Seul Bi away, misinterpreting as Jae Seok intended. The next morning at school, everyone talks about the text they received re: Sung Yeol and Seul Bi. Seul Bi is once again an outcast, and Young Eun is crushed (she happens to like Sung Yeol). Seul Bi has one ally, classmate Joo Ah, who sticks with her despite her unpopularity
Historical dramas run the gamut from comedy to brutality, sometimes all in the same drama! Counter to the normal K-Drama, a historical drama can actually provide a little bit of education. While I won"t pretend that "The Night Watchman" or "Book of the House of Gu" is real, they do have as their backdrop a real period in history, which can provide an interest in learning more about that era. They can also provide a rich visual feast and show you things you simply won"t see anymore. Whatever the reasons, the historical drama is an important K-drama staple. Here are my picks for the 10 best!
Pure guilty pleasure, not unlike the barbarian movies of the 1980s. "Chuno" is about a Joseon-era slave hunter who finds and recaptures slaves because of a slave that burnt his house down, killing his family

Um…
Love it or hate it, K-Dramas are rife with makjang, the Korean term for over the top or ridiculous subplots and coincidences that keep the viewers tuning in week after week. A drama doesn"t have to be terrible or illogical to be makjang, it could be extremely well-acted or tug at your heartstrings.
Despite the negative connotations, does it truly have to be a bad thing? There are some great dramas that are simply amazing to watch, but when you try and sit down to describe the plot, it seems to get, well, laughable. To wit, here are just a few entertaining dramas that have absolutely preposterous storylines (WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD):
Three brothers are separated at a very young age as a result of their parents" death. A lovely overused trope that they play up here
