The Disguiser 伪装者 - Episode 41 FINAL (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 26, 2016
Get ready for the final episode. Yes, you will need tissues. Of course you will need tissues. Did you think we'd get a happy ending? I'm beginning to suspect Chinese dramas never have happy endings.
Damn you, drama. I'm getting all dry from crying... less because I'm stricken with grief though and more because I don't like this ending at all.
JoAnne: On a certain level, I think it's a good ending. But as far as feeling satisfied for people I cared about, no - not a good ending at all, because it's not an ending at all.
Eleanor: I don't think we could have had a good ending without something like this though. I think they sort of went with the least sad ending that they could have.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 6 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 25, 2016
kakashi: Healer Boy Huang Tuo finds his twu wuv, Kasuo finds Shi, and then, everybody goes chasing the ice crystal, which - surprise!! - isn't as lost as Healer Boss wanted everybody to believe. I love how Kasuo and Li Luo totally ship Healer Boy and his twu wuv, even though she doesn't even know she is the twu wuv. Everybody is so awwwwww.
SakiVI: Yay for Twu Wuv!  Looks like it might be on the cards for Yan Da and Shi, too, though not in such an emotionally healthy way.
JoAnne: This guy looks like Siwon-light. It was very distracting.


The Disguiser 伪装者 - Episode 40 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 25, 2016
This penultimate episode is Ah Cheng's episode ... and Liang's. Ah Cheng keeps cleaning up mess after mess and finds a rather unexpected helper in Liang. More danger is averted and more people die, but the Mings are never safe. Should we be glad all three brothers are still alive at this point - or does that mean we should fear the end of this show?
JoAnne: I keep waiting for one of them to die! Not that I want them to...but could it really happen? Could they all survive?
Eleanor: Maybe they will all die. Noooooooooooo!!!!

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 5 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 24, 2016
The quest for the ice crystal begins! First up, the Healer Tribe. As their name says, they're all healers. There is human tragedy too, because the young son of the Healer Boss is about to be forced into a marriage with a woman he does not want. Oh, and Prince Shi surprises us all by ... well, turning into a hot namja.
SakiVI: A lot of Prince Shi's existence is a mystereeeeeeeee! The hot namja part doesn't hurt, though.
JoAnne: Both brothers are attractive but yeah, Shi... yum.


The Disguiser 伪装者 - Episode 39 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 24, 2016
Ming Tai is in for a surprise on a grey rooftop - a surprise and a tearful goodbye. There seem to be a lot of goodbyes recently, but we're still not sure who is going to walk out of this intact. As we all suspected, that tape recorder survived the fire (*note to self: hide valuable things inside a big clock in case of raging fire*) and of course, it means the Mings still won't get their well-deserved peace and quiet.
JoAnne: Plus, either I misunderstood something or my mind is genuinely blown. But no biggie.
Eleanor: Well hopefully things get sorted out for all of us but especially for the Mings. *sigh* I think I am going to need to get some tissues soon.

Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 11 (Recap)

Posted by SakiVI on August 23, 2016
SakiVI: So many shenanigans! Fo Ye and Ba Ye are crafty, our Miss is thirsty, and the servants at Xin Yue Hotel are interestingly scary. We focus on the hotel and the characters within it in this episode, which gives some much-loved variety.
kakashi: I think I used to be an auctioneer in one of my previous lives. Why else would I love auction-action that much?


Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 4 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 23, 2016
Kasuo and Li Luo finally meet face-to-face in this episode and it's very, very cute. He should be grateful for such a bodyguard, because without her, he'd be a bit lost in the mortal realm. Oh, he also gets a different hair color, I don't like it, it doesn't go well with his skin. And can we at least get the side-braids back?
SakiVI: Actually, I like his new look. I found the white hair rather gloomy. Or maybe that was his mildly emo personality?
JoAnne: I was watching, he had white hair; I looked away for a second, he had black hair. I don't much care either way but I don't think he looks bad with the dark hair. And no to side braids, since they show off the glue to his wig so well.

Rants and Weekly Raves #101 (RAWR)

kakashi: Sadly, I haven't picked anything up. I'm KDramaless. I don't care much about it though, I am confident I will get back on the wagon.
JoAnne: Drinking Alone starts soon, you might like that. Or Fantastic. (That one has Joo Sang Wook!)
Yeah, well ....... TEN, anyone? I really don't want to see him in another of his funny-funny roles. Anyway, I'm too busy recapping Chinese shows with an insane amount of episodes, so I don't have time to watch Korean drama.
Trotwood: I was wondering how you could miss anything now that you are caught in the Ice Fantasy world with little Miss A.
What worries me more is that I wrote that sentence above last Tuesday, and now (Sunday), I'm all caught up with Ice Fantasy. What happened? Did I get sucked into an ice hole of infinite time? 
Shuk: I'm just happy with W and Cin And The Boys as my SoKor dramas. 
cherkell: What is this thing you call Drama Watching, hm?
