Rants and Weekly Raves #306 (RAWR)

Trotwood: I hope other people watched things this week because I didn't have time to watch much. Last week of teaching, mapping out new work responsibilities during COVID, and the slow death of my personal computing device took much time away from watching. I didn't even time to rage bake, which meant a lot more rage, of course. Kakashi: I am watchig Flower of Evil, enjoying it a lot! And Attack on Titan, but slowly (she said - before staying up until 2am). I'm still reading Historical Romance books like there's no tomorrow. Those books can be slurped up so quickly I do about one a day and immediately forget what it was about. At the moment, I particularly enjoy Tessa Dare (she is very humerous) and Eloisa James.
JoAnne: I'm all about Flower of Evil now that Okay Not Okay has ended. And ended perfectly. Panda: Ooooh Tessa Dare and Eloisa James :) Noiice. I am also reading everything and am now on season 14 of Midsomer Murders. I had to say bye to Tom B and it hurt. I&…

Flower of Evil 악의 꽃 - Episode 4 (Recap)

kakashi: Nice. Just fool us, drama :D The tables turn, then turn again. Feeling as dizzy as I am? JoAnne: I just keep focused on the belief that Hyun Su is misunderstood. Well, not misunderstood, but badly treated and ostracized and backed into corners. Having a personality disorder does not make you a killer. Having a crazy, serial killer father does not make you a killer. I'm staking my heart on him being a peaceful person at his core.  

Flower of Evil 악의 꽃 - Episode 3 (Recap)

kakashi: For the entire length of this episode, my heart beat way too fast. Goddammit, what a ride! Things aren't what they seem or are they? The plot thickens but then again... not at all.  JoAnne: I love another damaged JoonGi creation. Is anyone even the least bit surprised? He's a bit like your wolf here, right?Poor pup.
Yes!  *sobs*

As soon as Bai Qian landed, the red ribbon detached itself from her and started bouncing away, like a rabbit after a carrot, disappearing too fast for her to follow.

It was still night, Bai Qian could tell by the glittering constellations that stretched across the boundless darkness above her head. But where she stood was filled with light.

In the distance was the vague outline of a tall tower surrounded by multiple walls stretching far and wide. She wanted to run ahead and look for the God of the Moon right away, but the otherworldly peaceful air seemed to be slowly seeping into her with every breath she took, entreating her to slow down.

kakashi: The Penultimate. Thank Gods for smart female leads.
JoAnne: Thank God Kakashi is someone who knows what penultimate means.

Flower of Evil 악의 꽃 - Episode 2 (Recap)

kakashi: Hm, I might be wrong about everything I said at the end of episode 2. Our Male Lead might well be a psychopathic serial killer for all we know. And yet, the drama manages to make me pity the young him. How mean everybody was...
JoAnne: I'm with you. Well, he's certainly the son of one at least and the whole thing about his emotions? Could have knocked me over with a FEATHER.

kakashi: I'm at the office. I have a headache. I also started watching Season 3 of Attack on Titan (finally! But I really couldn't stomach something as brutal and sad as that during the Corona lockdown). I will go look for Levi fanfiction next. Panda: I sound like a broken record but yep, still not watching any dramas. I think I am just going to wait for Secret Forest 2 (A great birthday present). I am still binge-ing through Midsommer Murders and I just realized I have now read 393 books this year. WTF JoAnne: I am busy trying to save the world, so I'm not watching much. I only watched Flower of Evil this week. Oh and Lost Romance - still on the cute side of things, happy to say.  Trotwood: We keep getting government guidance that keeps changing which means that we need to keep updating our plans, but soon they are just going to have to stop because we are in the implementation phase. I'm trying to find balance, so I went berry picking last week and picked ten pounds of…

Fuze sat back in his cushion, gulping down his wine with enthusiasm, and flashed a wolfish grin in Bai Qian and Yanzhi’s direction.

Flower of Evil 악의 꽃 - Episode 1 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: The older I get, the fewer weaknesses I have, but Lee Joon-gi remains one as does Kim Ji-hoon. I'm going to recap this drama anyway because they're both in it even though it's tvN (= very long episodes). With episode 1, we're off to a swift start, have no clue what's going on and meet a ton of characters. I'm intrigued.
JoAnne: That's funny - I find I indulge myself a lot more, return to things I liked as a child, even.  Dollhouses, sewn toys, all that. I don't have much time these days but I do love a good Joon Gi drama and Kim Ji Hoon is always a treat, and I have missed working on KDramas with my dear friend here.  The story could suck donkey (insert your word here, there are several) and I would still jump to participate. In fact, the bad ones are the ones we have the most fun on! (But this one is not bad.)

kakashi: Time to lay eggs! Or do they need to be made first? I'm a little confused about the technicalities. This episode starts sweet and ends bitter. JoAnne:  I really prefer it the other way around.
