kakashi: I have the solution to this mess, but nobody ever listens to me ... Won needs to get laid, Rachel's mother needs to get laid, but not by the abusive father, but by Teddybear Ahjussi, Hyo-shik needs to get laid by Tutorina (oups, wait ... that would make her a two-timer! no good!), and Tan needs to get laid. AND he needs iron supplements for energy. Only Young-do doesn't need to get laid. He is just fine as he is. (In an interesting turn of events though, he's the one we all want to lay.)
kakashi: I am quite amazed by how they can hug without really touching each other in this show. That must be quite hard and surely requires a lot of practice! That said, I find Young-do's caveman behavior incredibly hot. That hug!!! So manly!
kakashi: Lee Min-ho's whiney, lazy acting is just not doing it. He loses to Kim Woo-bin big time and all the time and I hope it bugs him. Maybe it'll get him to act (better) in his next drama. No, I'm not ready to discuss this with any LMH fangirls: just face the truth, even if it hurts. And yes, Kim Eun-sook is also to blame; I seriously don't want to know what kind of guys she hangs out with in real life...
kakashi: Sigh ... why. why. why does every encounter between Rachel and Tan need to be the same frigging repetitive shit over and over and over??? We get it. Really!! We have more than 3 brain cells!! We're 11 episodes in and Rachel's character still is completely redundant. She isn't even creating any conflict with her bitch-witchy stuff. Options: she could jump Tan and rip his clothes off right there in front of everyone. Or she could undress Young-do after judo.
kakashi; 18? Heck, this guy is SO NOT 18. Thank goodness. Hot, just hot. And lucky they dress him fully okay.
kakashi; I feel another flutter in the heart region. His "I see" was quite heartbreaking. So sad, and yet so resolved. He is no fool, uri Young-do - he knows already that he has no chance (and so do we), but he will still not be able to keep away. We need anti-heartbreak pills, quickly!
kakashi: To the rescueeeeeee! Virginity is at staaaaake!
Shuk: Her mother is stalking her fiancé, who is boozing it up with some wine chickies. They have a heated convo: it appears that their engagement announcement is timed to boost their stock prices. She hisses at him to delay it long enough for her to get her own stocks in order.
kakashi: ... and, maybe, have another humble-tumble with Teddybear Ahjussi?
Shuk: As she turns to leave, she sees KiMistress’ eonni, talking on the phone. Bad Dad identifies her as Madam Bang, the…uh…proprietress of the bar. The BarMom is talking to someone about shoes………..
kakashi: So glad we get another sidestory of a sidestory within a sidestory that is really just a sidestory. Cause ... we do not nearly have enough cast members and their sidestories yet.
kakashi; Oh, I know the answer to that one ... the bored expressionless (or I guess it's supposed to be cool?) face.
kakashi: Oh, how I wish we were back to the great sexual symbolism of the California episodes, because this ........ *Yawn*
kakashi: If somebody just killed Eun-sang, we'd have a nice little horror twist. I'm volunteering to do it.
kakashi: Oh what? They did not sleep inside the truck after all? Booooooo! Or is it a symbol? Is she no longer pure? Can she kiss him back now? Without a shocked face? Is she pregnant? Some very dangerous actions there!!!
kakashi: Yeah. The moment I can't help to feel sorry for that poor girl again. Embarrassing situation, really. Everybody thinks they had the sexy times, but, alas ...
kakashi: I just realize I was never even remotely like this when I was 18. I am not sure that's a good or a bad thing.
kakashi: Hahaha, awesome. I officially love him. Yeah, yeah, I know! Evil bully! A place in hell is his for sure! Etc.! Etc.! Etc.! But still the best character in this sea of incredibly dull and boring characters. He is my ship. She may drown, cause she sure ain't.
kakashi: Yeah, like why is that even a line he needs to say.
kakashi: She'd have so much fun with this one. Does she even realize?
kakashi: Oh no the jacket, but oh yay the hair! It has escaped from excessive gel and other hairproducts and is allowed to freely flop around on the magnificent head of Kim Woo-bin.
kakashi: He really wins them all, the little duels, right? If only he could also win the overall contest!
kakashi: Three things. I am giddy because Kang Ha-neul got such an extended scene and acted so well. Proud! Second, I realized for the first time that his mother is that teacher-parent woman. Third, I hate her so much. What an awful parent. But she is in such good company ... the only good parents we've encountered are Teddybear Ahjussi, Bean Queen and Tan Omma.
kakashi: 11 episodes of absolutely pointless encounters aka Fillers between these two KimWomen.
kakashi: Loved her happy, satisfied smile.
kakashi: Oh no! The Young-do - Rachel ship just went belly-up...
kakashi: I'm always very much surprised if Heirs gets it right. Both scenes were very well done. Rachel's crying touched me - she is so lonely and sad behind her hard shell. Tan's gesture was nice, and him struggling to do it tells us something about possible conflicts happening behind that bored/boring exterior. And Young-do's almost panicked, incredibly surprised face was heart wrenching. Of course, he out-acted all of them once again.
"Listen to me for one minute. I've been misunderstood many times because of my existence. Misunderstandings that cannot be clarified. So I try my best to clear up such misunderstandings. First, what you saw earlier between Rachel and me, is just friendship. Don't misunderstand. Second, I'm sorry for not helping you out when you fell in the pool. I didn't want to give you a hard time with so many people around. But, If I had known that I'd feel bad about it, I should have helped, and just let you be in that uncomfortable situation. I regret not doing that.."
kakashi: I don't find his whiney kid-act even remotely endearing. And I'd rather have an outright bully that hits people than somebody pretending to be healed who constantly bullies people with little stuff like force-kissing them or barricading them. No, I don't like Kim Tan at all. Can't he go back to Cali?
Shuk: Then he'd have to deal with cherkell or Shel, and he ain't man enough for the job.
cherkell: Although Tan-ah would run screaming from my wrath, I defer to Shel. She wants those grandbabies, remember?
kakashi: Backstory! We will get more backstory!!
kakashi: Go hug it out, you two. Yes, at this point I randomly ship everyone that appears on my screen.
kakashi: Yeah, cause his worst nightmare is coming true. He might soon no longer be No1 in his little Kingdom. Darling, let me tell you: it doesn't matter. There are other things in life you can enjoy. I know a few wonderful noonas with plenty of ideas for you.
kakashi: OMG that sweater. Why? Why? Why?
kakashi: Gah!!!! Something finally happens!!!! OMG that show suddenly got really interesting!!! Like ... WOW!
kakashi: But she has been inside again. She is no longer pure for sure. That is what counts: She must now marry him. Maybe she's already pregnant. With twins this time, because she already got pregnant from putting her head on his shoulder at the campside.
kakashi: Love is the moooooment, Shuk.
Shuk: [coughing up furballs] Sorry, didn't hear you.
kakashi: Yeah, getting a bit crowded in that room anyway.
kakashi: Love is more pain. Or my pain? Anyway, love is pain. This is the proof.
kakashi: Yeah, and because you're Shuk and not JoAnne, I am admitting here that I no longer hate BoNa. She's a pretty funny character who is crazy enough for me to even like her.
kakashi: I think we get it. You pine for each other. You're the OTP. True love and all that shit.
kakashi: Oh no ........ he is going to break my heart.......
kakashi: Oh, Tan does what he always does: stare.
kakashi: How exciting. NOT. What a non-cliffhanger, goodness gracious.
Shuk: Oh crap, another staredown with Clueless in the middle. Can writer-nim come up with anything else? Unless a Truck of Doom knocks them all into next week, this is starting to get ridiculous. I am losing my patience with Kim Tan, whose hot / cold attitude gets on my nerves, and whose very actions is causing destruction and pain to his supposed love interest. I'm ready to sink him and jump on the Young-do express. At least he has some basis for his asshattery, with his shitty father and homelife. GoodHeir is acting like an undisciplined idiot in ugly sweaters, and his "what did I just do?" expression doesn't cut it for me. Grow up! [growl]
kakashi: I couldn't agree more. He is just annoying, annoying, annoying. I actually hate all of Kim Eun-sook's male leads. They are all dicks, who constantly force themselves on the woman they love so dearly, with absolutely no concern for them.
Shuk: On the other hand, I'm glad to see more of Kang Ha-neul, with another peek into Hyo-shin's home. We had a chance to see Messy amused, angry, and heartbreakingly vulnerable. Let the ToD wipe out the others and restart with him as the center of the story!
kakashi: Oh yes, please get rid of 50% of the cast NOW.
Shuk: As for the adults, whatever. They don't interest me outside of the occasional comic relief or exposition. Move along. I can only hope that this gets back on track with episode 12, which I have not seen as of this writing.
kakashi: How. Can. A. Drama. Be. So. Sloooooooooow. I'll be 256 years old by the time this is done.
