Shine or Go Crazy - Episode 12 (A SqueeCap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 3/02/2015 02:00:00 PM with No comments
Welcome to the heartbreak episode. But first, some cute! *wipes tears*
Episode 12 verdict: An extremely strong hour of KDrama. On top of the world and in the depths of despair. 
S@ki6: I still don't know what this drama is supposed to be or what it wants from me as a viewer. So, I'm going with "Yeowon is awesome" and "SeWon is hot." Now that my biases are declared, I can comment solely based on biasing them.
I read a VERY interesting theory elsewhere involving SeWon, which would, if the drama would depart from history entirely, allow SeWon and YeoWon to be together, assuming she could end things with Wang So. Which we know can't happen, so whatever. The theory was that Se Won is the missing brother of Shin Yool. Which makes him, yes, a prince. A hot, hot, HOT prince.
WHAT THE .... ohhhhhhhhh! Make this happen! Make this happen!!!!

블러드 Blood - Episode 3 (A FakeCap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 3/01/2015 09:07:00 AM with 5 comments
(Un)fortunately (?), more than 900 people have read our previous posts. Much more. So we'll continue this (ad)venture here (for the time being). I'm almost hoping for this to be as bad or worse as last week's episodes. I also realized I need to step up on the fakeness, because we were really not even close to being fake enough. So this is what I'll do ... I'll watch without sound and subs this time round, but take into consideration "spoilers" I have seen on twitter.
I'M SO EXCITED. Nothing you can come up with is going to match the WTFness of some of the dialogue from this episode. (Also, Cass said we could put her awesome video in a BloodCap!)
Shuk: [whimpering]

Shine or Go Crazy - Episode 11 (A SqueeCap)

It took me a while to gather my wits to continue recapping, not because I don't like this drama anymore, no, the opposite is true! But because the NEXT episode broke my heart. It really did. It took me 3 days to recover from it, but now I'm ready. I think? And this is the episode in which shit starts gathering, waiting for the fan to start turning.
JoAnne: They're so happy, Kakashi. Isn't it the sweetest thing ever? They're just so delighted with themselves, you can't help but smile. I think I'll go skip my way through a meadow of butterflies and wild flowers and sing a song with the birds - everything will be fine here.
S@ki6: What is show trying to be?  A sageuk, a melo or a rom-com?  So far, it seems rom-com with a bit of melo (because what Korean show doesn't have melo?) in Goryeo clothing.  But then it gets sageuk-y and frankly, it's leaving me confused.  If we're rom-com/melo in Goryeo clothing, then I get all this first and second lead type behavior.  But if it's supposed to be a sageuk, then it's all not making sense. Anyway, that's where I'm tripping up with the show. 
Episode 11 verdict: get ready for impact, people. And it's gonna hurt. 
Shit. But I'm already in the meadow! Do I have time for ONE song?

Unkind Women - Episode 2 (The SJR only version)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 2/27/2015 09:27:00 AM with 15 comments
In Episode 1 of Unkind Women, Song Jae-rim jogged (both straight and sideways), yelled briefly, then slepts, woke up and slept again. After a while he got up and left. Let's see what he did in episode 2! (Overall, this drama doesn't look too bad. Maybe it'll be subbed after all? Pretty please?)
This post is dedicated to mary aka kdramalaws, of course

Unkind Women - Episode 1 (This is Not a Recap, but it's for mary)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 2/26/2015 11:16:00 PM with 10 comments
Dear Squeeglets, at this moment, we do not know who will sub Unkind Women or even IF somebody will sub it. I won't lie, I'm not particularly sad about it because I'm preoccupied elsewhere and wasn't going to watch it anyway. BUT. Yes, there is Song Jae-rim in there and attentive readers might have realized that SJR has a somewhat special status on this blog. Who's to blame? Well, Mo. And through Mo, mary. And because mary is troubled by difficult internet connections (I'm so sorry dongsaeng), I promised her Song Jae-rim gifs. So these gifs? They're my gift.

Shine or Go Crazy - Episode 10 (A SqueeCap)

We're dealing with the aftermath of Wang So's win and Shin-yool's discovery of his true identity in this episode. And finally, Wang So is able to see the truth as well. Where we're going from here, we can only guess. Because he has not one, but two women after him now. Also: DAMN, I realized only now that all this time, with Soompi subs, I've watched a badly mangled version of the drama. Switching to viki right away. I tell you, it's a different WORLD.
becca: Is it as mind-boggling as discovering your chrush's true identity/gender?
Episode 10 verdict: I'm giddy with joy. No, actually, I'm sad. We're caught up! No more crazy recapping! What will I do? What will I do with my life??!
S@ki6: That's good advice re Viki. I'll try them next. 
Never fear, Kakashi. We have Blood (WHAT A MEAN THING TO SAY!!!). We also have the potential Unkind Women... and there's always that other one I mentioned to you yesterday that I don't want to say out loud.
I will not switch to Viki! Their ads are annoying (and repetitive and repetitive)! And I usually understand enough to catch the important things that Soompi leaves out. (PSsst, becca: Adblocker!)

Shuk: So we finally get to the cohabitation portion of the story. It's about time! Can Rut pull this off successfully? He is stronger, more mature, more self-confident, and more aware than his younger brother. Is his attraction to May stronger, though? Will he be able to protect his fake identity and the woman from the evil machinations of the ex-boyfriend bad guy? Let us see!
becca: Just remember: this is a lakorn, so things will get much much worse before they get better.
