EPISODE 13 RECAP
by La Petite
Se Joo walks into the meeting room, introduces himself as Miranda’s grandson who inherits her blood and money but there is one thing that cannot be inherited and that is a challenging mind. He delivers an ambitious speech of his plans for making YBS into a media station that keeps challenging itself and into a media conglomerate that is recognized worldwide.
Mi Rae tries to get a grip of herself in the ladies after getting officially rejected by Shin, Writer Bae walks in and queries her regarding her Christmas date. Meanwhile, PD Lee wakes up from his little drooling nap (yes, there is drool on the desk) and sees Se Joo looking down on him, frowning. LOL. PD Lee obviously has no idea and continues to mock Se Joo but changes tone straight away and shuns Se Joo aside when the vice director enters the office. Oppa enters seconds later and pays his respect at Se Joo awkwardly and using Jondaemal. PD Lee thinks it was some kind of joke and takes him awhile to grasp the truth. Mi Rae is the last to enter the office and sees Se Joo.
Running Man: Episode 173 Recap by Drama Beans
Bellies stuffed, the cast readies themselves for a post-dinner mission on this MT (short for “membership training,” an overnight trip where schoolmates or co-workers play games, eat, and drink a-plenty) with guests Ryu Hyun-jin and Suzy.
Their task is to find (or steal) the pillows hidden in the basecamp and return to their sleeping quarters to stake their claim to one of six spots. Last week’s winnings equate to each member’s allotted time for the game, which means the Betrayal Trio only have about thirteen minutes.

Episode 2 ended with Allen asking Shing Shing to go to a hotel with him. She thinks he’s propositioning her but to her disappointment, he just needs a ride. Ouch.
On the way there, she wonders why he acts so familiar with her and chalks it up to his American sensibilities. After she drops him off, he doesn’t leave without being a little too friendly as always and she wonders why it always seems like he’s flirting with her. Girl, that’s because he is.

“I Need Romance 3″ Episode 7 – 8 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
This drama zips through relationships faster than a CW teen show. At this point, it’s like an American sitcom with 1-episode relationships except that instead of main characters dating quirky guest stars, they are dating other main characters.
Having said that, I found this week’s episodes a little interesting.
We learn that for the two months Sweet Potato has lived with Joo Yeon, he’s been her unpaid homemaker and caretaker while she’s been too busy to relax and enjoy a meal. She doesn’t really stop till the night she cries after disappointing her sunbae. After resting on Wan’s comforting shoulders for a bit, she suddenly perks up, announces that she’s hungry and rummages through the fridge for something to eat. Then she’s back to her old self. She tells Wan that she’ll now be given the cruel nickname of $200/minute which was originally coined by Tae Yoon. He was also the one who whipped her into shape and made her the successful, highly productive, heartless, drone-like employee she is today. I don’t think the drama could be more obvious about which guy it ships.
