The Heirs - Episode 15 (I Can't Do A Thing With My Heir)
cherkell: Argh. Drinking Game commences... about 30 minutes before I started watching this episode. Oh the pain... the pain...
cherkell: Another pointless scene. Moving on.
cherkell: "Hang on. I've got to make two girls miserable at once. Will CYRB."
cherkell: With a class lab on Wrong Ways To Make Girls Jealous held later in the evening.
cherkell: Amen to that, my sista! I already have a title chosen -- KiMistress and Bean Mom: THEY'RE COPS. Tonight, on NBC!
cherkell: It's probably a picture of KimPapa having carnal relations with a goat. That would explain his jackassery ways for sure.
cherkell: More important that Beany? What, those butt-ugly speakers in his room? His Bad Sweater Collection? Or dare I say... HIS PRIZED DREAMCATCHER?!? *nooooooo*
cherkell: Excuse me for a second. I just threw up a little in my mouth. *blech*
cherkell: And thank goodness for that, because I actually got physically sick after watching the first episode of "Let's Eat." My tummy is hurty, Mommy Shuk!
Shuk: [rubs cher's belly and gives her ginger ale and crackers absentmindedly while watching the first Thor movie]
cherkell: OUCH. But Tannie seems like he's finally hit the ground running in figuring out what trivial details come along with being born the second son of Jeguk Group. He's not as dim a bulb as he was in Episode 1 anymore! *throws confetti*
cherkell: Aw Messy, come here. Noona will take good care of you no matter what you want to do in life. Besides, there's way too many lawyers in the world right now. Take my word for it; plan another career course. Think about it, won't you? Thank you.
cherkell: Bromance! *squee* *squee* *squee*
cherkell: I half-expected Woobie to pull out some PPL face cream at this point. (And besides, why hasn't he endorsed a cosmetic brand yet? GET ON THAT, PEOPLE!!!)
cherkell: I grew up in an atmosphere like that. If a comment wasn't snarkalicious, then it was not worth speaking. But still, isn't it getting kinda old now?
cherkell: Crappity crap crap crap. This surely will not end well, will it?
cherkell: Lamest Retort EVER. Bad Daddy is just hiding his anger until they get off camera.
cherkell: And a slight squee left my lips in seeing Tan's puppy-dog antics. More of that to brighten my day, please!
cherkell: Now that was a eye-opener! I didn't think KiMistress had the bandwidth to pull the ol' blackmail route. Maybe she learned the fine art by watching KimPapa's machinations? Regardless, kudos to her!
cherkell: LOL it's almost like being picked last for a pick-up baseball team. "There's no crying in Reading Assignments!!!" *snort*
cherkell: Cute cute cute cute CUTE! (Whoops, a momentary digression there. We now return you to our regularly-scheduled snark, already in progress... )
cherkell: Dang it, that location has been bugging me for the longest time. I must have walked by it a half-dozen times roaming around Gangnam-gu. It's definitely not the one used in Shark or AGD, though. Maybe Daechi-dong? *off to check Seoul maps*
cherkell: Oh honey, just stop it now. Poor Baddy is already PW'd by you; do you have to rip the bandage off as well?
cherkell: And only in Korea would a change in corporate family structure be for the better unlike here in the States, which would call for a massive selling-off spree. Everybody funny.
cherkell: YES! Now that's a KDrama I would pay good money to watch -- the Korean version of "Scanners"!
cherkell: Aw. But as I said earlier, this is not going to end well for anyone. Least of which, those like me who don't give a flying flip about 9/10ths of these characters.
cherkell: Waaaaaah such a rough life. Here's the World's Smallest Violin, playing "My Heart Bleeds For You."
cherkell: Better break out your Winter Leathers, Baddy... or that's not the only part of your body that may suffer some frostbite, if you catch my drift.
cherkell: All sitting there looking as if they're waiting for their death sentences from The Warden. *awkward*
cherkell: [insert massive amounts of swear words in 7 different languages here]
cherkell:If that asshole doesn't end up in a mental institution or stone-dead by the Finale's time-jump, I will eat my laptop. Yes, that's how much I hate that character.
cherkell: Poor dumb dope. Cute as a button... but Baby is still Number 1 ranked in their class with that deductive reasoning? *headsmack*
cherkell: Yes, please eat! I can see your ribs through those bulky sweaters!
cherkell: When Tannie eventually stops with the Hero Worship, angels will sing and the heavens will open saying WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?!?
cherkell: I pick all of the above. I'm a greedy little bitch.
cherkell: Oh just melt into the ground already. Or have lightning strike his wheelchair. Either way, it's all good.
cherkell: Bullshit Meter just pegged at 11, sir!
cherkell: When you're a Jeguk, you're a Jeguk all the way... from your first bloodless coup to your last takeover play...
cherkell: Totally agreed. The little side jokes and small instances of meta are what's keeping me from completely drifting off into Boredom Land.
cherkell: Lather, rinse, repeat. I got nothin'.
cherkell: FINALLY a show of some cojones! Let's see how long that lasts, though. We still have five more episodes to plow through...
“If you break up with Tan immediately, I’ll let you go, to any province (in Korea), America, England, France, wherever you want. But if you feel you can't break up with him even if you die, then there is another choice you have. I'll give you half a month. You can meet Tan all you want during that time, but after the time is up and you break up with him, you'll go where I send you. It won't be Korea, America, England, or France, but a very different place.”
cherkell: Is Beany drunk again? Yeah, that's it. She knocked back a bottle of KiMistress's prized wine before climbing the stairs. Smart girl.. I think I'll do the same. *hic*
cherkell: I still believe that this Show could have been laid out properly in 16 episodes maximum. There's so much going around and around and around and staring and.... ARGH. The corporate intrigue should have ramped up much more quickly than finally being laid bare in Episode 15. And the cardboard cutouts comprising the characters is grating, to say the least. If anything, we finally get to see more of Kang Ha-neul's wonderful acting as his story gets to see some light of day. KiMistress and Bean Mom's covert 'Mission Improbably' activities made me snort out my Mocha Soy Latte. And the BabyBona Duo are mostly there for comic relief, but I don't mind because *someone* has to do it. But the rest of these kids' First World Problems? Could have been fleshed out in fewer substantive vignettes. Five more to go... five more to go... *sigh*
cherkell: With some vegetable oil and a halo of light surrounding them? Now THAT's a drama I could sink my teeth into. I'll have my people call your people and get it green-lighted for the Spring 2014 season! *maniacal grin*
