Jang Bori Is Here! - Episode 8 (KimJiCap)
JoAnne: Oh my gosh, yes, please. It's too much. Fortunately they add to the man candy this episode. It makes up for a lot.
Jae-hwa and Bo-ri's first meeting is not exactly friendly ... we should be glad she is only threatening to beat him up and doesn't really do it! Also, he has troubles even understanding her ... he is "wtf, woman - what are you saying?". Yes, who can blame him with that accent of hers?! Oh, and the mother is violent as well ... flee, Kim Ji-hoon! These wimmins are evil!! He retreats, muttering to himself ... but of course, he has a parking ticket now. Still, I think he deserves this - he was being a dick.
JoAnne: Yeah, I kinda want to smash him in the face.
kakashi: Nonononono smashing this face!!!!!*gives JoAnne the evil eye*
JoAnne: Yes, of course. (yes, JoAnne. Unmyeong)
JoAnne: Stitches are like fingerprints, apparently.
New character alert! Little sis Ga-eul (Han Seung-yeon of Kara) is coming home from the States (she doesn't want to study there any longer). Picking her up: her Mother and Jae-hee. She greets them enthusiastically but they ... don't recognize her. Because she has a completely "new face". Excuse me?! I do not entirely get the joke ... but that's maybe just me. I have issues finding extensive plastic surgery in the least amusing ... Apart from that, she is a likable character. Loud, spoiled, and maybe a bit lazy, but she also has spunk and clearly knows how to manipulate her mother, brother, and most likely father. She also has at least 30 bags with her and needs 5 cars to transport them home.
JoAnne: I would like to suggest that we call this a Jae Hee Cap.
kakashi: Hahaha ....... NO.
JoAnne: She's so freaking pretty (yes and I like her voice!) it's hard to remember what a bitch she was, but somehow, I feel that won't last long.
JoAnne: I wonder what Jae Hee is doing.
JoAnne: Here's what I don't get. VeggieAhjumma is in on the whole deal. She knows they can't appear in front of the Mr & Mrs. Worst Parents of the Year, and always has. So why doesn't Bori know? Wouldn't you think they'd have made it clear?
kakashi: Ah. The inquisitive mind and KDrama. They don't go together well.
JoAnne: Do you think if she removes that scarf we'll see Frankenstein scars? What's the deal? Is she providing a family of mice with a temporary home?
JoAnne: I feel bad he was such a sweet little muffin.
JoAnne: She does clean up really well. I wonder if that matters later.
JoAnne: And then he bursts into tears and confesses that the only way he can like a girl is if she drapes noodles on herself. Everyone is shocked, but not that surprised, and while Jae Hwa cries in a heap in the corner, Jae Hee steps up to the plate to call the local mental facility.
JoAnne: I am definite about the hyung, at least. Yes. Big yes.
JoAnne: Mean but funny.
JoAnne: Poor OppaNotOppa, will he EVER get the girl? Because you know this one is dumping his ass.
JoAnne: There are no words to describe how much I loved this.
(She went to the stitching school next to the medical school that LJS attended in WTFDoc. The schools are run by conjoined twins, by the way.). Halmoni wants to see with her eyes closed as well, but she definitely needs GooDIL for that. Not liking this AT ALL: BaDIL. The Yongbo? Was turned into a pillow. For VeggieAhjumma.
JoAnne: So this robe has been lingering unfinished for 15 years, but suddenly it's an issue. Okay.
JoAnne: I am pleased with the Man Candy Offering.
JoAnne: Hurry, little Bori! Learn all the special secret secrets!
At Olivia Hassler, Jae-hee and his assistant Yoo Chun talk about the investment into Bi Sool Chae ($30Mio). Also, one of their new employees has jumped ship. Seeing Min-jung on the list of options and remembering the meeting in front of the restaurant, Jae-hee says to employ her. The reason at the moment: her connection to Bi Sool Chae. Yoo-chun is to keep it a secret, because Jae-hee has ulterior motives: he wants to get power within the company as quickly as possible. Is he a bit evil?!
JoAnne: Maybe he just realizes his parents are crazy.
JoAnne: Yep, he's yesterday's leftovers.
At TheOtherTown, Jae-hwa honks his horn at Bori in the streets. She doesn't recognize him, but his car - and is surprised at his sameness. She has a lot of debt with her friend who gave her the credit card. The next day, Bori is to deliver some rice soup to the towns District Court. We learn that Veggie Ahjumma plans to move near Min-jung soon - but they need looooots of money for that. Jae-hwa is on the phone with ... his sister (?), legs on the table (that's a bit disgusting).
Yes, this continues to be not really bad. And not really good either, but since I was expecting something much, much worse, I am happy. The central Hanbok-theme is actually quite interesting. I like that the two hanbok-rivals will take on the two pupils, who already are rivals and will be so on another level as well. This is very much about good vs. evil and there's nothing to be said against that, right?
JoAnne: I joke, but it is interesting. She's right about that.
Jae-hwa is a cheeky sly dog and I like that a lot - but I am sure we will get to see his vulnerable side before not too long, too. Also: wanna bet we will see him cry?
JoAnne: Wanna bet I'd try to MAKE him cry?
This has turned out to be a fairly long recap, because much explaining needs to be done. As soon as we are settled, I'll go into real KimJiCap mode - which means only capping stuff with Kim Ji-hoon in it and summarizing the rest under "The Rest"!
