bcook: I wanna see him too! But I'm also a little scared. What if it's bad? Then it'll affect my memory of him from Coffee Prince. T_T
Shuk: That man could stand there and just breathe and it will be good. No worries.
Shuk: Team Leader Yang looks between the incorporeal girl and terse Prosecutor, and wisely retreats. Outside the Medical Examiner’s area, Gun-woo chatters, not noticing Shi-on is wincing with a headache. In the middle of his words, she registers what her sidekick is saying; the poor prosecutor was jilted at the altar. The wheels start going around in Shi-on’s head, and she finds a picture of the wedding invitation. Oh snap, it is the dead woman.
bcook: duh duh. So....did she die coz the prosecutor pissed somebody off? Wouldn't he know? Why is he pretending she left him? curiouser and curiouser.
Shuk: She calls Gun-woo to her desk, and tells him she was asked to temporarily assign him to the Investigation Department, and, given his field experience and skills, she agreed. He seems reluctant for someone who was whining to go just a short time ago. She tells him it’s temporary, but if he does well, it may be a permanent move. She finishes with a caveat; pay close attention to Prosecutor Park.
bcook: I don't believe he killed her. I do believe she was killed because of him.
bcook: Don't judge a book and all that. So-In is annoying me again.
bcook: See! The baddies have to have a gabang collection. Which makes the blurred hand burial even more confusing. I wonder if there's a baddie body disposal exchange program. One silver gabang for 3 sheets of black garbage bags or 1 sharp blade knife for one silver gabang.
Shuk: At another place, a well-dressed older woman is dropping off her recyclables when Shi-on arrives. She asks the security guard if the woman was Park’s mother, but before she can say anything, he shows up. He tells her she has gone too far, but she stands firm that Park himself has gone overboard towards Jang Yeon-hee. At the mention of his fiancée, he gets up in her grill, and furiously warns her away.
bcook: Yeah. Back off lady! He's like still hurting ok. Why isn't he a little curious bout why she's asking if he killed his fiancee?
Shuk: Our limb-burying bad guy is in the passenger seat of a sedan when receives a phone call, but we don’t know what he was told. What we do see is Detective Cha waiting outside his old boss’ house. As soon as he sees her, he bounds out of his car. Most people in their business sweat and work hard for little bits of evidence – how is she able to uncover such huge stuff? She doesn't say anything but that she hopes his permanent transfer goes through. He’s incredulous; that’s all there is? No teamwork, no nothing? She just plods into her house.
bcook: How come she doesn't have a car?
Shuk: He does the standard dab-with-a-swab routine, muttering about scarring. She tells him it’s late and he should leave, but he does this cute fakey, “Ugh I can barely drag myself to the couch” routine. He tells her that she’ll be disappointed he’s not trying to seduce her, but he intends to stay overnight in case the thugs come back.
bcook: psh. Like anybody was thinking that. Writer-nim trying to beat us over the head with their non-existent chemistry.
Shuk: He gives her a rundown why her security sucks while she nonchalantly drinks a bottle of water, but then the conversation switches to personal questions. It’s her family’s home but her parents died when she was fifteen, and she has no siblings.
bcook: Bit random that.
Shuk: He changes the subject to something less sensitive; she wants to talk about his case and Prosecutor Park. She tells him that the unknown woman is his fiancée. He blows it off, but for a moment, it seemed he believed her. Don’t worry, Shi-on, he’ll come around.
bcook: Seems like she doesn't want him to believe. She doesn't even want to believe right? Though it looks like she's beginning to accept that she sees dead people. I hope she continues to executed WEoF so I can keep playing the drinking game.
Shuk: In her room, she thinks about her run-in with the prosecutor. And our prosecutor is awake and going through the text messages on his cellphone, including one from Yeon-hee that says, “Let’s end it here. I’m tired. Don’t look for me.” Hmm, he got a text from her? So he didn’t kill her?
bcook: Question answered. So who killed her? and why? and...yeah don't really care. They're not really creating enough of a mystery for me. She's just seeing ghosts, following them around and finding out stuff.
bcook: I'm begining to believe her eyes were created wide. By created I mean plastic surgery and by wide I mean kind of freaky.
bcook: Yeah, yeah. he's a nice guy. I still don't see them as a couple. When dead fiance shows up this fake tension buildup will end!
bcook: How come other cop shows never show the Hall? There could be an entire movie/show about that. Hmm isn't there an american movie set in a traffic control room?
Shuk: They probably film when Best Buy is closed.
bcook: This kid is going to get into trouble. I can feel it (the moment...not the trouble).
bcook: I love that she was reading her horoscope. Isn't there are rule about that? That psychics can't tell their own fortunes?
bcook: flickering lights then WEoF!!! Shot! Shot! oh darn. I promised not to drink before 5pm. Will save for later. This is a pretty interesting ghost eh? (like my canadian accent?) Cold when she's in a fridge, hot when she's about to burn.
bcook: He's running again. *sigh* Just once can he walk to and from a suspect's place?
Shuk: At the precinct, our now-fiery ghost shows up, and Shi-on follows it out of the building. Gun-woo is in traffic when he receives a phone call from Detective Cha, who texts him the last known address of the vehicle.
Shuk; Shi-on realizes what's happening when she ends up in front of a crematory. She runs inside, and starts looking for the right room. Meanwhile, the cavalry is on the way as well. She finds the right room, and stops the firing. The man yells at her, and accidentally reveals a knife when he pulls out the death certificate. He pulls out the knife; she pulls out her
bcook: Wah. Gun-woo has some moves! That was the most exciting thing that's happened so far. The fight scene in her house was ok but it was pretty dark.
Shuk: The remains are hustled to a waiting ambulance as the gang mops up and heads out. Shi-on, now in the little zipcar, meekly receives chastisement from Gun-woo. He gives us an Moment of Exposition summing up the events we already know. She won't tell him how she knew to be there, and ominously tells him it's not over; there's still Prosecutor Park.
bcook: Oh yeah. Him. Forgot about him. *yawn*
Shuk: At the Medical Examiner's office, he finally gets proof of his boss' spooky information; dental records prove the body is Jang Yeon-hee. Here I scratch my head: one of suspects is interviewing, yunno, one of the suspects? Our Lost and Found pair watch from the window as Prosecutor Park grills our body-burning friend.
bcook: No evidence though. I suspect Team Leader Yang's opinion won't carry much weight in deciding who interrogates suspects.
bcook: Hmm. A half shot when a secondary character looks stricken? I might have to start making mixed drinks and taking sips instead of shots. Soju is pretty strong.
Shuk: And we find out why, when his mother is brought in for questioning. Oh noes, that's taking the Dragon Mother-in-Law too far, and the two have a mutual meltdown. We finally get the backstory.
|Cake Topper for the Wedding|
bcook: Couldn't she has just made her sign a pre-nup?
Shuk: She refused, and the ensuing physical and verbal battle caused a fatal asthma attack. The mom found her inhaler but held off giving it to her until she had stopped breathing. Biatch. She then called her husband's henchmen to take care of the body, and sent her son the text messages using the dead girl's phone. That's pretty damn cold there, ahjumma.
bcook: Btw, I have asthma...that's not what an attack looks like. There's a lot more wheezing sound right from the beginning. That moment when ahjumma is like...why don't I just kill her? Creeeepy.
bcook: *Devising my korean mother-in-law protection plan*. Every culture/country has them though but the kdrama ones seem particularly evil.
|You can build up immunity to iocane powder and mothers-in-law!|
bcook: He did it! I'm telling you it's him. In fact. I'm willing to bet a bottle of soju.
Shuk: Anyway, she tells him he looks familiar to her, even though they've never worked together. He says he has that kind of face, and was even told he looked like a king in a television drama.
bcook: Not a King...a prince. Kahpe P-rin-seu. Has he played a king too? Does writer-nim think they're being slick with these drama references? Coz I gotta say...Master's Sun is doing a better job.
Shuk: And, actually, he did play King Seonjo in "Blades Of Blood". FYI.
bcook: I'm quite confused as to why they're having that conversation. "Sorry I was an ass, and my mom killed my girlfriend"?? But it's probably so they can show the nice "Ghost saying goodbye" montage at the end.
bcook: It always works better when somebody knows your secret. Look at vampire prosecutor, and ghost. Things work better and faster, Shi-On. Just tell him! *sob* tell him and hopefully that'll speed up the pace of this show.
bcook: Ah Hah!!! We've been staring at that box each opening scene. It finally shows up. Did he show her the box before he went off to completely screwup a surveillance and die? How come it's not in an evidence box somewhere? I predict that these questions too, will never be answered.
bcook: duh duh. Director needs to stop with the wonky angles and PoV shots though. Alfred Hitchcock he is not. (I'm no girlfriday but I know my movie trivia)
Shuk: Yay! Kim Jae-wook! I hope this means we are finally starting to see Shi-on's past, and help her repair the patches in her memory. Who am I kidding, I just want more of KJW. Can ghosts have shower scenes? [shakes off thought]
bcook: o_O. I didn't even go there but now that you have.......*starts searching for shirtless pictures of KJW* Forbidden Quest.
bcook: I'm curious to see how the fiancee showing up is going to work. Is he going to help her solve the cases? Is he just going to show up when her life is in danger? Can he talk? Coz none of the other ghosts have. Will there be ghost touching? Freezer girl proved its possible. How long is this show? 20 episodes? *sob*
Shuk: I still think that we have already been introduced to the bad guys in this drama, although writer-nim seems a bit heavy-handed in pointing out Detective Choi Moon-sik as having the greatest darkside likelihood.
bcook: D'u think it's a fake-out? If it is and they do it well.....my mind will be blown. If we already have the who, then it'll be up to writer-nim to give us a good 'why' and 'why should I care'.
