Who Are You - Episode 8 (A SqueeCap)
bcook: I refuse to even consider this 'growing of feelings'. Such a forced thing. Anybody have any examples of actors trying to convince us they belong together? Apart from Benniffer (Jlo and Ben Affleck). I'm very happy that Ghost Oppa is getting more screen time. Actually can the show just follow him around? I think it'll be much more interesting.
Shuk: Shi-on is plastered against the archives by a hot ghost, and I couldn't be any more envious. Detective Choi senses someone in the room with him, but a fortuitous phone call from our puppy stops him from investigating further. Once he is gone, our Dead Detective breathes a sigh of relief. Yeah, I don’t know how he did it either.
bcook: Writer-nim probably figured since they haven't actually spelt out what ghosts can and cannot do...why not give him the power to hide people. Question though...how come Shi-on didn't see D.Choi walking past?
bcook: She has a clue though! And what's she going to do with it? Given her track record probably tell D.Choi. SMH
bcook: We're not either. My hangul's not great but I follow TC on twitter and i'm 75% sure all his recent tweets have been about how hard acting is and how much he's learning from his sunbaes....TC. You're not learning much.
bcook: dun dun. Jeesh lady! Can't you be paranoid? Somebody died remember?!
bcook: Word. Listen to the puppy. He's smart-ish.
bcook: This show requires a large amount of suspension of belief. Agreed? Like...why go to his old address? To see what there is to see? Try and get into his mindset?
Shuk: In the storage room, the men are talking men things. Sung-chan flashes movie tickets for him and the fortune teller, and Gun-woo teases him by trying to steal them.
bcook: Cute moment. No snark for this one. I hope she says yes.
bcook: lol. That's what everybody on Viki was talking about. Its totally possible though. If say, he owned the house and had no family. Or nobody wanted to live in a house where somebody who was shot brutally lived. There's a house in my neighbourhood that's sitting empty.
bcook: See don't get that. Why go all the way to his house and not go in? Aren't you supposed to be investimagating?
bcook: Liar Liar pants on fire! But riddle me this. In an earlier episode (no I'm not going back to look it up) D.Choi was looking at an internal affairs report that i'm pretty sure he authored with Ghost oppa ... so how come he's the bad guy? Also.... CALLED IT!
bcook: I would like to see some efficient creeping. Just once.
Shuk: She ducks when he whirls, trying to shut off her phone but answering it instead. The only thing Gun-woo hears is a tolling bell. He hangs up and calls his mentor, who tells him he is at a wedding at Yongsan Church. Gun-woo is puzzled because that is where he goes when he's depressed. Choi tells his to go play with his Team Leader, but finds out she left the building. Whups, she's been found out.
bcook: This is what happens when you don't share information with your partners. Let this be a lesson to everybody. There's no I in Team. *Half hearted advice*
Shuk: But there is a "ME". :-)
bcook: GW is running again! "Run Devil Run Run!"
bcook: Erm...Yeah. O___o
bcook: aww. Family shot you in the leg. I'm confused though. How did he end up dead then? Fight amongst thieves?
bcook: Can't he point at the damn thing? Jeesh!
Shuk: Choi tosses the Reaper his watch back and tells him to be more careful in the future. The man tells him he should hear from somebody soon. Oh great, another crooked cop.
bcook: I have to admit. I was shocked when this happened. So blatantly bad. I thought we were going to be strung along a little bit more. What's up writer-nim?
bcook: Mosquitoes wouldn't dare bite actors. Fans will declare war on them.
Shuk: He calls himself an idiot for worrying about her, and that Detective Choi is a father figure to him. After he leaves, she says out loud she hopes he's right.
bcook: Parents can be bad too you know. Look at every mafia boss and hitman and assassin and cruel dictator and and...you get my point.
bcook: You use such big words Shuk *admiration* The 'love with gate in between' scene was beautiful but kinda funny for me because I'd just finished The Marriage Plot (you should totally watch it if you haven't already) and they had the exact same scene. Writer-nim is a copy cat.
bcook: It seems forced is what it does.
Shuk: We get a flashback of the happy couple at the theaters, where he tells her to only smile in front of him from now on. Awww, popcorn confession, and she calls him "Oppa". My heart gets a tug at his expression on his face in 2013.
bcook: But oooh! flashback! Do guys actually say stuff like that in real life? If yes, where can I find them.
bcook: The look on his face when he realises that everybody in there is in a couple. But yeah. I'll say again. There is a lack of chemistry and eyeloving build up that makes this scene ring false! false! false!
bcook: Flashback! Is this going to become a tool? Shall I change the drinking game rules?
bcook: I just want this show to be over. That's the problem! It's like 15 minutes too long.
Shuk: He identifies himself as Inspector Cha Gun-woo of the Seoul Police Lost and Found Department, and asks if she is the owner of this white cellphone. There's a tug-o-war that pulls her towards him, and she awkwardly lets go and steps back.
bcook: *blink* *yawn* Ok. TC appears to be a good kisser. The female "I'm frozen and I've never kissed anybody before in my whole life. eww! lips!" reaction was less visible than normal. I did not squee.
Shuk: Poor Ghost Oppa! He sees the exchange, and turns his face away from the pair.
bcook: Poor guy. It was bound to happen but to see it happen with him?! I'd cry too.
Shuk: We knew this was where the writer was going, but it still pains me to see Hyung-joon not only left on the outside forever, but watching his love fall into someone else's embrace. Now he's stuck being the noble second who protects the canon couple and bows out in the end. And I can't help but compare the happy kissing of the past, with this clumsy, unsure stuff now. Sure, the Shi-on has just recently copped on to Gun-woo's feelings, but they still don't have the chemistry needed to make this work perfectly.
bcook: Second! Second! Second! I tried to find out the ratings for this show and it's looking like 1%? This show needs deliverance.
Shuk; There's now suspicion in both Shi-on's and Gun-woo's mind regarding Detective Choi. But we still don't know who the Big Bad is, and the writer hasn't given me enough information to feel even the tiniest ort of sympathy for the older detective. Sitting in a church for a few minutes doesn't make up for years of murder and manipulation. Now that the kiss is over, let the angst begin! It's time to earn that happy ending.
bcook: I don't think he was sitting there feeling bad about what he's done. I'm pretty sure he's just worried about how to cover his a$% . This has got to be the slowest build up for a show I've ever watched. I can feel my snarks get meaner and meaner and I can't do anything to stop it!! They need to give us one whole episode of Ghost Oppa. Send GW on a male only MT.
