Who Are You - Episode 2 (A SqueeCap)
bcook: Annyeong! Don't mind me...I'm just observing Shukie's skills.
The link for the first episode is here.
Shuk: Our poor suicidal boy recounts what happened to Oh-reum: His psychiatrist uncle, sexually molested her, and ultimately threw her off the roof of his office building. The doctor’s name? Park Hyung-jin.
bcook: rwar rwar.
bcook: It's evil vampire prosecutor guy! I knew he'd do something like this. It was too much to hope he was playing a good guy. But seriously Shi-on...no attempt to walk towards the door? She just sat there and watched him lock her in. Why are her eyes so wide!! We get it. It's scary.
bcook: I love how Gun-woo just stood there listening. Erm..run and listen?! Also erm..no needle would stick that perfectly out of a persons arm.
bcook: All the satellites are watching North Korea. And Jeju...because jeju is a national treasure. Is it bad that I spent more time thinking about Taecyon's running form than being worried about Shi-on?
Shuk: Not from me.
bcook: DChoi has something to do with the 'mysterious incident' three years ago. why else was he at her interrogation. I've solved the case! No need to watch any further.
Shuk: I think I'll keep watching. I need a KJW fix!!
Shuk: Shi-on slowly wakes up in a damp and seedy warehouse. She can barely move, and Doctor Park warns her that the drug is still in her system. He plans to take her shoes and stage her suicide. She asks why didn't he kill her already.
bcook: *confused* why would you take off your shoes to commit suicide? But he is a very good bad guy. I'm a little concerned for her safety.
Shuk: She starts scolding him for being callous to a beautiful young girl’s death? His smile is chilling. How does she know that Oh-reum was the only one? And he recounts almost clinically his vice. Other people have fun hobbies; his pleasure is in children. And Oh-reum was special as her muteness added another layer of excitement to the hunt and reward. Oh Jang Hyung-sung, you always play creepy guys I want to hurt really really badly.
bcook: I'm right behind you. I'll go low, you go high k?
Shuk: You got it, chingu.
Shuk: He gets closer to her; it’s her turn to spill her secrets. She responds by throwing dust in his face and running. He’s enjoying the chase, at least until he realizes she might get away. He grabs a metal pipe and starts searching for her through the piled trash in the warehouse, calling to her like a stray dog.
bcook: I'm thinking of starting a drinking game for every time she looks back in terror like that.
bcook: That fall had to hurt. I'm all for suspension of disbelief but seriously? She landed feet first and wasn't even limping!
Shuk: But at least she wasn't wearing How-the-hell-can-she-even-walk high heels.
bcook: Too bad. Him dying would have been a better message. The coma messed up her sense of morality etc etc etc.
Shuk: Outside, Gun-woo has a temper tantrum; thanks to that gun shot, his chances for getting into Special Investigations Bureau are even further away. Shi-on is calm though, and promises to take the blame. He asks her if the same situation happened again, would she behave the same way? She answers in the affirmative.
bcook: I might add in every time TC tries to act angry but ends up looking cute. I think I might get very drunk. *pauses the video and starts writing down the rules*
bcook: 6 month pay cut? I'd be bawling my eyes out. I guess it's better than getting fired.
bcook: hehe psycho-atrist. hehe Should I add mentions of jeju to my drink list? There's bound to be another one...it's only episode two!
bcook: Good story transition. This might be my first view of a korean subway platform.
Shuk: Gun-woo immediately takes note of the mousse in his hair, and the shine on his fingernails. He sends the new kid to the farthest desk, but he insists the light from the window would be bad for his skin. Shi-on finally shows up, and gives him the better table. She also assigns him to Gun-woo, making him feel he’s being picked on.
bcook: The kid was a trainee singer. And Gun-woo says he's wasting his life. Aah I get it this is supposed to be a little hehe about TC being an idol right?
Shuk: In the property rooms, Gun-woo establishes the pecking order, and the two of them begin documenting the current items, which includes that suspicious metal suitcase. It’s locked, so they don’t open it. Gun-woo assigned the new guy the task of cleaning the entire warehouse.
bcook: WrU is definately scarier than Master's Sun.
Shuk: The sucking up begins at the meeting, with one eye-glassed individual standing out. Everyone goes to lunch together, and Four-eyes immediately starts picking on Shi-on, making fun of her amnesia. Her Black Knight retaliates by announcing to the Superintendent that Team Leader Bong (the one with the glasses) has offered to pay for the entire meal. They begin a gustatory feast of Korean beef and alcohol.
bcook: eww eww eww bleh bleh bleh. They sooo don't match! There was no chemistry what so ever! (Am I protesting too much?) I know it's only episode 2 but it's hard to drawn into TC's character. I hope he gets better.
Shuk: A few minutes later, she takes them out, and with new found camaraderie, he cautiously asks her about the day of the accident. She tells him that she had visited all the places and tried to do all the things she did before, but nothing helps her memory. So now she has no expectation of remembering anything that occurred, but for some reason, she feels drawn to the Lost and Found Department.
bcook: I wonder what he did to get posted to Lost and Found. I think I'm going to add his monologues about her wierd thinking to my drink list.
Shuk: She receives a phone call asking to see if a metal suitcase has been found. We see it’s a scruffy homeless-looking guy. Even though it’s after closing time, she agrees to stay until the man gets there. He is sarcastically impressed with her dedication; she tells him his report writing is for crap. I love these two and their interactions!
bcook: I love how the old guy is standing next to a phonebooth while talking on his cell phone. Is the director sending a message? Am I trying to find meaning where there is none? Will it make the episode end faster?
Shuk: Down in the Property room, Shi-on looks for the suitcase as she rubs her arms against the sudden cool air. Did the air conditioning go into overdrive? She finds the suitcase as the temperature drops cold enough to see her breath. She whips around as a sudden movement catches her eye.
bcook: wide eyes of fear! DRINK!
Shuk: Gun-woo walks down the stairs into the property room, and sees his boss standing there, staring at nothing, a hitch in her breath.
Shuk: Okay, our second ghost has appeared, and I’m ready for the next arc. The creepy pedophile psychiatrist has established that this is not going to be a cute story like, say, Master’s Sun, but I do like the interaction between the two leads. Taec’s acting has improved on this one, although I have to admit the last vehicle I watched was Dream High I. But Detective Cha’s ability to take all of his boss’ strangeness in stride is a great thing. So often we have the fussy freakout partner, and that may happen as Shi-on gets more embroiled in these ghosts’ afterlife issues. But I’m thinking he will be a steady rock for her to lean on when things go out of control.
bcook: His acceptance is actually a little strange to me.Why is he taking it so calmly? TC is ok. He's overacting a little bit. Actually... so is So E-Hyun.
Shuk: We still need more of the late fiancé. Maybe it’s a residual effect of my SqueeCaps of Heartless City, but I can’t help but look at the people she works with and wonder if one of them is the person that snuffed out her boyfriend’s life.
bcook: It's the sunbae! He did it! *points accusing finger at the screen* Why else would the fiance look so surprised. I'm guessing he's going to show up and have no memory of what happened to him. Ghost amnesia? otherwise the story ends.
Shuk: I hope to try and catch up with the recaps, although with a failing laptop and a series almost half-way through it’s run, it seems a bit daunting. Still, I’m going to try and give it my best shot! On to Episode Three!
bcook: You're on fire Shukie!! I'll go buy the soju for the next episode k?
