Episode 12Shuk: Han Tae-hee calls out, and Lee Jae-hee slowly turns around, and the deer in the headlight gaze lands on his boss. Jae-hee quick-thinks and tells him they need more wine glasses.
kakashi: Temporarily saved! But only because Tae-san ist a bit ... slow?
JoAnne: Yeah but not about Oppa. You were a jerk just now, Chubs. A person likes who they like, no matter who else likes them, or whether that person likes them back or not. It can’t be helped. It’s either celebrated or endured. You are in the enduring category, Chubs. Throwing people up against walls when they don’t want you to do it is a bad choice.
kakashi: I don't really get why he freaks out. Is it because he did not get the sheksi time with the fishface he so desired? Or is he afraid of Oppa's muscles?
Shuk: Now it’s the Wine Tasting of Probing Questions, and our Bad Thought Couple come up with semi-plausible answers to all of Tae-sang's questions. I want to carefully run my fingers through Oppa’s hair to look for blonde roots.
JoAnne: He so wants to believe. He so wants to ignore. I so want to hurt people.
kakashi: Okay, yes, that's plausible. He MUST KNOW. I don't want to believe he is really stupid. He is too pretty for that. #WhenAManIsInDenial
JoAnne: Poor Oppa. You really can’t hear that train whistle?
kakashi: It's nicely done, show. I haven't felt that bad for a character in a long time ...
JoAnne: Oppa, you are so freaking HAPPY. You can do that with me every morning, please? Chubs: You f*****g f***r who sucks.
kakashi: D'awwwwz, this breaks my heart ... He is like a happy puppy who doesn't know what a wolf looks like, happily runs up to the wolf, wagging his little tail, and then gets shredded to pieces!!
kakashi: For the sake of fairness, I made a gif of her. Cause she doesn't look all bad here. Sorry, JoAnne.
JoAnne: SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO did not see that coming. Point to you, Delusional.
kakashi: Has this show switched writers? What is happening?!
JoAnne: So props to Oppa for the cool business head, I was impressed. But Chubs’ question hit a nerve with me. Oppa…I really thought you were ignoring it for the sake of friendship. Was it actually because she brought you investors? Really? *sad face*
kakashi: #WhenTwoMenStartToHateEachOther.... nice.
JoAnne: Awfully high and mighty talk from the dude who lives in the house Oppa gave him while he works at the job Oppa gave him that he is qualified to perform because of the education Oppa paid for. Still haven't forgiven you for that manhandling RUDENESS, Chubs.
kakashi: Surprisingly, this drama is surprising. Jae-hee is a really twisted character, I didn't expect that at all.
Shuk: Tae-sang is looking over the resort and thinking about what to do, when he receives a text from Mi-do. She coldly asks him if he is happy that his interference meant she lost the London job. He looks genuinely surprised, and tells her she is mistaken, but she brushes off his attempt to correct things. She offers to do whatever he wants, get married next weekend or next month or whenever, and, with that she walks away.
JoAnne: I don’t blame her for thinking this is what happened, but I no longer believe this is what happened.
kakashi: I do. It just shows what kind of person she is. You don't have to think ill of people if you do not know they have done you ill. She could and should have asked him.
JoAnne: Poor Oppa, you trusting fool. Poor Mi Do when she finds out she is wrong and 1) she adores Oppa, 2) He was honestly devoted to her and always wanted to do well by her, 3) sees his abs for the first time and realizes she doesn't get to touch them. (No wait, serves her right.) Poor clueless Chubs, who still doesn't realize that even if pigs flew every single available man to the moon and he was the only man left on Earth AND King of the Pigs, to boot - he would still not end up with Mi Do permanently.
kakashi: Hmmm ..... why not?! Oppa could still die. From cancer or a broken heart or brokenheartcancer and then, these two would be with each other but feel forever guilty. That's melo! So far, this is not melo! By the way, this scene made me feel so uncomfortable .......
JoAnne: Behind every great man is a smart, busy woman. Oooh…could we have Oppa and Chang…no. Never mind. But seriously we could…no, we can‘t. But it would be GLORIOUS. (No, but seriously, I'm never letting a Korean person into my house to see the level of housekeeping I consider sufficient. Every drama, it‘s like hands and knees to clean the floor - makes sense, they do so much on it - and they work so HARD at housework.)
JoAnne: Nope. Nope. Nooooooooooope. If you’re gonna be a bitch, OWN that shit.
JoNote: If there is one single gif of that woman on this squeecap looking any better than the evil witch in Snow White, I will riot. In fact, please add a wart on her nose in every picture from now on.
kakashi: Shuk, help!
JoAnne: Seriously, if the roof/wall is in that state of decay, y’all should not be staying there, let alone going upstairs. Building collapse? Ever hear the term? Plus, those gloomy dark stain/shadows/ghosts of dead gangsters gathering in the corners - they weren't in earlier episodes.
JoAnne: I think she’s actually sympathetic to both. And wow, Dad, I totally had NOT considered this from the point of view of YOUR participation in those earlier events. I completely understand. I wish you felt differently, but I do get it. 100% get it. Shit.
kakashi: I don't understand at all because I have no idea what earlier event you are referring to. Ah, was that before I started giffing this show? Okay, those events don't exist for me, then.
Shuk: At President Han’a abode, Seo Eomma is being typically embarrassing, oohing and ahhing. Mi-do is still sad and refuses to cheer up, even after Tae-sang apologizes again and hugs her.
JoAnne: Cheesehead Mom moves into Mousetrap Manor. Oppa is so HAPPY about this.
kakashi: He even makes her bed. Awwwwwww... #WhenOppaMustWAKEUP
JoAnne: I am 200% convinced that Chang Hee and Chubs are NOT talking about the same secret. Also, if I was me (so A)not his brother and B)not a guy) and came home to that sprawled out in a chair showing an impressively bicep’d self and a stern but beautiful face, in the spotless apartment I knew he cleaned I would crawl into that lap and Oppa the SHIT out of him. Possibly let him spank me a little if I was naughty.
JoNote: A writer must be honest.
kakashi: I hate the way he rubs his feet. Gross.
Shuk: Tae-sang, Mom, Idol Boy and Mi-do are having breakfast. Mi-do gets up to leave for work, and Tae-sang teases that they should get married and enjoy family life. Her blasé yes, sets everyone back. After she leaves, Mi-joon asks Tae-sang; his sister is unlikable and poor. I ask myself that every episode.
JoAnne: One thing that I notice in Asian dramas in general that seems different from romantic tales in the West: here, when asked why we love someone, we produce reasons. She’s brave, she’s plucky, she reminds me of X, she makes me laugh, whatever. In the East, it seems to be sufficient to say ‘Who knows why? I just do.’ I guess it ties in with the bigger emphasis on fate.
kakashi: Yeah, that unmyeong ... must suck. Imagine being fated to love pissyfishycheaty face!!!
JoNote: Shuk, I am sending you a gif for here:
JoAnne: I knew it. I’m sorry I ever doubted you even for that brief moment, Oppa.
JoNote: Kakashi, are you sorry now that you said she was a nice girl and Chubs should date her? Probably not. I know you hate Pissy. I don't much like her but I have some sympathy for her, so now I really hate the Chaebol Princess.Shuk: At the mall, Seon-joo and Mi-do meet yet again, and Seon-joo is on a tear: congratulations on the proposal, I guess you have the ring because it’s worth a lot, sorry for losing the theater job, sorry Tae-sang did that to you, and good luck. Mi-do gets into the fray stating that he would never fall in love with Seon-joo, but she warns her not to think of Jae-hee when she is with Tae-sang.
kakaNote: JoAnne, I am not sorry at all. I wanted Chubs out of the way and he deserves this evil witch. That's why.
JoAnne: Why is that I could not be LESS interested in cat fights?
JoAnne: You JERK. I bet your manhood is so small you need tweezers to go to the bathroom.
kakashi: I am convinced of the opposite. About the only real man in this whole drama. Though, without the purple hair, I do not like him that much anymore ....
JoAnne: I loved this move, the whole thing. He’s trying so hard to stop that train from killing everyone. For a while, I thought everybody might get out of this alive. I no longer do.
kakashi: I no longer believe that people will die in this drama. But they will all suffer. Like ... a LOT.
JoAnne: Oppa. OPPA. You don't notice anything at all ever and THIS catches your ear.
kakashi: Cause he has become a musician for his Do-Re-Mi!
Shuk: Walking back, the two brothers, and Chang-hee gives him some experienced words of wisdom, but Jae-hee is in tragic hero mode and doesn't listen. Mi-do receives an invite to coffee with Kelly Jo, who offers her a job in New York, stating her boyfriend Jae-hee suggested the idea.
Shuk: This episode our idols are rocking to "See Through" by Primary featuring Zion-T and Gaeko with The Dark Cloud That Is Mi-do leaning against the wall.
JoAnne: They choose good music, at least. Interestingly enough, although the idols belong to JYP Entertainment, they aren’t limiting themselves to JYP music. And NO ONE has whispered ‘JYP’ at any point in the drama. Hmmm….
|Don't they kind of look alike? Just sayin'|
JoAnne: *Pats self on shoulder for calling it several episodes ago.* *Realizes she probably just set herself up for future embarrassment, pauses, and leaves as is.*
kakashi: *yawning a little*
Shuk: We get another look at those lovely lovely feet as Tae-sang lounges on his couch. We have another reason to hate her as Mi-do walks in and he sits up, hiding them.
JoAnne: Don’t ever make fun of me for being fond of Peter Ho or Chicken Beak again. (But he does have very elegant feet, even for me who thinks feet are DISGUSTING.)
Shuk: [whining] But Peter Ho has a ski slope! I wanna make fun of it!
JoAnne: Excuse me please, Writer-Nim. Where the F*** DID THAT COME FROM?
LJH: “I'm going to be working in Hong Kong from now on. Good bye, Mi Do. I was really glad to have met you. It's a bit of a heart breaker. But it's much better than not having anything at all in my life. Good bye. Don't be insensitive and send a wedding invitation. When you see something funny on the blackboard, don't think that it's me. Erase the three days in Guam from your mind. I'm sure that you have erased it already."JoAnne: G-D you Chubs, you ALWAYS pull me back in.
Shuk: She squeezes his hand hard, and then, with tears, lets go and turns away. He lunges after her, and ohshit ohshit ohshit ohshit ohshit ohshit they start a frantic kissing / removing clothes session, bouncing into walls and blundering into objects, ending up in Tae-sang’s closet. She is an active participant this time. Not the shirtless scene I really hoped for.
kakashi: Gaaaaaaaaaaah, what the .......... I was making gifs, sound off, in my daughters room while she was sleeping beside of me and then .... THIS?! *triple gulp* *checking whether this is really KDrama* ... What just happened to you, drama?! Turbo booster or what? Hear this sound? It's all the people that dropped you undropping you!!!
JoAnne: Oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit.
kakashi: A cheater's worst nightmare.
JoAnne: Is this the moment? Oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit.
kakashi: Oppa .... for F's sake .... do you need MORE signs still???!!!
JoAnne: Chubs is thinking ‘I got SO CLOSE.’
kakashi: ... and thinking: hottest KDrama scene ver. Well done.
JoAnne: Tae what? Tae WHAT? I’ll tell you what, since my friend over there has lost the ability to type. OPPA RIPPED THE SHIRT IN HALF. HE KNOWS. HE KNOWS. Oppa HURT. Oppa MAD. Oppa RIP SHIRT. GRRRRRRR. Plus he’s only wearing an undershirt which plays up his shoulders and biceps to excellent effect, not half because it’s white (Kakashi). HE RIPPED IT IN HALF. It is ON like donkey-kong, fellow squee-ers. Next week is going to be one bumpy ride. I CANNOT WAIT.
kakashi: *speechless**staring**whiping tears and sweat*
It is ON!!!
