This is the almost wedding episode! Oh boy, I can't wait to see it go downhill for the Bitch-Troll ... and the downhill is coming, that much is clear! I mean, she's already on a slope so steep you can't see the bottom! There's not enough Kim Ji-hoon in this episode though (I think I've had to say that before), but the little bit we get is GREAT! Anyway, this creates an issue for my KimJiCaps. If I put all the Kim Ji-hoon unrelated stuff down into "The Rest", there will be almost nothing in the main text. You people don't care about things like that? Thought so.
JoAnne: Well we see what YOU care about, anyway! I'm just worried about the rest of the drama, because if we're already at the wedding... so is she going to get caught and not marry or is she going to get married and then caught? I'm guessing married and then caught (you know, later, after she ruins more lives) which means she has to ignore that... situation that is coming. PS I am very happy about this picture and what it means.
Oups, spoiler. Sawry, people.
Min-jung is moving out of Bi Sool Chae (nice), sneakily sneaking the sneaky suitcase out of the locked cupboard. She would like to move it herself and herself only (does she fear that the stolen pictures might jump out?) ... but then, her "parents" come in and the servant takes the suitcase. She lies about not having the slightest idea what was in the locked cupboard - after Bong2 has left the room, BaDIL hugs her, happy that she wasn't the picture-stealing culprit, as she suspected.
JoAnne: So Bong2 and BaDIL must have had a conversation about this off screen or did I fall asleep somewhere?
Nope, they never talked about it. But they both had the same suspicion.
(yes) She is presently at Bi Sool Chae, and kindly picks up Min-jung's red suitcase, that toppled over. Min-jung freaks out and babbles nasty stuff. The usual, yes. In the end, she has the glorious idea that she needs to find that crosstitch genius piece. Because whoever has it will automatically be the Chosen Hanboker. From her real mother, she finds out that Bori had it wrapped around her neck when she was found and that the piece was turned into a pillow case. Veggie is tasked with getting it and delivering it to Min-jung asap, but Bori catches wind of it. Hehe. And we all know that Veggie is pretty useless.
JoAnne: Are you, like me, highly skeptical that gold thread embroidery would hold up as well as portrayed when used on a pillow that people have been putting their heads on? I have done embroidery with gold thread, and lemme tell ya... doing the EMBROIDERY can mess up that thread. Forget actual use. Perhaps it's a mystical magical yongbo and somewhere within Bi Sool Chae there is One Perfect Hanbok and when the two are co-located they will join together and some how proclaim Bori as the rightful heir while magically setting MinJung's hair on fire or something.
kakashi: You forget that it was made by a late GENIUS. A genius' yangbo is not destroyed by use as a pillow. It only gets stronger.
JoAnne: Fine, yes, it's a good idea. It only took him 25 years to have it.
I think it's friggin 25 minutes before Kim Ji-hoon appears in this episode?! WTF! Anyway, he's here now and I am happy. He is currently helping Bori to hang up the washing and takes pleasure in her, well, slightly unelegant underwear. That gets him to say that there is nobody he knows as pretty as her even without dolling up - but why does she never wear a skirt?
JoAnne: He is playing with her panties. Believe me, that sounds a lot more enticing than it looks.
JoAnne: Of course not, because he unconsciously subscribes to the patriarchal view that women exist for man's pleasure. Bori is a modern woman; she speaks her truth and she stands her ground. Jae Hwa is headed there, but he's got a ways to go. What. You think my constant objectification of men doesn't have a political slant? (It actually doesn't, but periodically I try to make it look good.)
So you're saying Jae-hwa is quasi a feminist? No?
JoAnne: That red dress was killer, I agree, but that's not a dress for attending a wedding. And the dress that they ended up choosing was NOT schoolteachery at all (hey! my schoolteacher wore dresses like that!), plus perfectly suited to the event. MAN does she have a great figure and terrific legs.
JoAnne: The squees were not containable. If the dog were here, she'd have barked at me. Although I personally find that neckline a bit awkward, perhaps because my neck is really only the suggestion of a neck. There's a tiiiiiiiny bit of space between my skull and my shoulders, and I just deal with it.
JoAnne: As long as there's no fucking POLAR bears, I'm fine with whatever he wants.
Polar Bear? That reminds me ... never mind.
JoAnne: Yes, take it. Take it right now.
He takes a round pebble into the left hand, makes two fists and tells her the hand with the rock means "Yes", the empty hand means "no". What is her answer? She points to his left hand, to indicate her dislike. Is she sure? he asks. She nods. Alright, he says, he asked her whether she disliked his love so her answer is ... he opens the hand and throws the pebble into the night ... "No". Heheheeeee, you smartass.
JoAnne: I ... yeah, kinda lost on that one. Is he saying her objections will be dismissed?
He obviously watched "It's Okay, It's Love". It's the same trick they talked about in the talk show: what do you do if a serial killer asks you to pick a note, telling you there's one that says he'll let you go and one that says he will kill you but there are in fact two that say he'll kill you!
JoAnne: Seriously. Why on EARTH would you say no to him? Even his ears are perfect. (ha! made you look!)
Be assured. I have studied his ears before.
JoAnne: is dead too.
JoAnne: The natural order of things would be that MinJung gets thrown out on her well-dressed, tiny, evil ASS right about the same moment that Bori is revealed as Eun Bi. But somehow, I think we're going to get one, for a while, without the other. I just don't see how they work it. Bori can't be Eun Bi without MinJung just NATURALLY being exposed, so it must be that MinJung gets married and does more damage for a while while the possibility of Bori being Eun Bi is dangled in front of Bi Sool Chae's eyes. Right? But how long can that be dragged out, really? What do YOU guys think?
At Bi Sool-Chae, Bori is cleaning up the mess in the storage room.
Suddenly, she gets a bad headache. Is it the thunderstorm? Bong2 and
BaDIL are about to leave for the wedding, when BaDIL sees the drawing
kit has been returned. Even though his wife urges him to hurry, Bong2
takes a look what is inside. It's the Eun-bi picture. Only that Eun-bi
has Bori's face.
JoAnne: Her skills have developed a little bit. It would be too weird if she were still drawing chunky kids.
It's a cluuuuuuuuuue!
JoAnne: So either she goes into a coma now for a while, or everyone is going to know who she is in about 30 seconds, and then Min Jung - well, maybe Bori doesn't tell the whole story. Ah, who knows.
busts open the door, and turning towards him is ... Eun-bi/Bori. "The
wolf ate the sheep", says the woman he just addressed as Eun-bi, "it's
so scary" - and crumbles to the floor. He catches her in his arms and
they stare at each other.
JoAnne: Coma it is, then.
Moony is back, and back with a vengeance! As the new head secretary of
Bad Dad, he will be in charge of the VIPs at the wedding (which is
tomorrow!). Hehehe. Min-jung? Feeling apprehensive much? Jae-hee is
furious (Still thinking Moony did something bad to Min-jung, which,
well, he actually has, but we're all very much on his side most of the
JoAnne: On his side all the time. All the time. That bitch is going down. And if you ever told me a few months ago that I'd think OppaNotOppa could be kind of sexy I'd have laughed at you, but now I'd be eating my words... because AppaNotOppa is kinda hot.
JoAnne: Seriously, Mom. You gotta stop.
Big Kang picks up Jung-ran on the street
as "hitch hiker". They hint at "new life". See? This is why nobody ever
has sex in KDrama! You get knocked up immediately!
JoAnne: I wonder if there's a correlation between what is apparently a population with raging fertility, and the increase in birth secrets and doppelgangers. Think about it. If you have a smallish population just procreatin' all over the place, you're bound to get some gene pooling.
JoAnne: I am still pissed about this. Don't even talk to me about those idiots.
tries to get her "friends" to not-talk about her past but ........ look
who's here! Moony in da house! If Jae-hee wants to know what kind of
woman Min-jung is, listen well, Moony says. He greets Min-jung's
friends, who all call him sunbae. What, sunbae? How could Min-jung's
friends ... what, Min-jung has never mentioned him to Jae-hee, Moony
asks all goody-goody. Oh, but they were ... in the same college club.
JoAnne: My heart is racing all over again.
JoAnne: I was so hopeful.
tries to save her pretty ass, but her "friends" are all on Moony's (and
the truth's side). Jae-hee grabs Moony's nice jacket, all angry that he
stages something like this - he should say what he has to say to his
face! Oh yes, he has something to say: break off the wedding with the
Bitch. He is doing this out of respect for Jae-hee: Min-jung loves only
herself. And finally, Jae-hee gets it: Min-jung is THAT woman. The one
that abandoned Moony.
JoAnne: Or so they want you to think, those fuckers running this show.
JoAnne; She was not the only one hulk smashing, but I did wait for a sec - because surely, surely her friends standing right there are going to mention that she was living with him? That they planned to marry? ....
Yeah. No. Commence Hulk Smash Sequence.
JoAnne: Ok that made me laugh, though.
implores her real mother not to come to her wedding and take Bi-dan to a
hospital, to make sure she is nowhere near that wedding. She also
creates a huge mess in the silk storage room at Bi Sool Chae, making
sure Bori is called to clean it up.
JoAnne: Because none of the other ten thousand women running around that place in hanbok all the time could possibly do it.
As the wedding is
getting closer and closer, Moony is preparing his ultimate proof, which
consists of pictures when Min-jung was young, the ultrsound picture of
Bi-dan as fetus, and ... a wedding certificate? Wait ... they were
married?! (I KNOW RIGHT?) He also adds a flash drive. Everything goes into a brown
envelope. At that moment, Min-jung calls him. He presses record. Smart
man. She says that Bi-dan is at the hospital. He seems to halfway
believe her, but when he rushes to the car, he sees a dolled up Veggie
getting into a taxi. Busted.
JoAnne: Even the universe thinks MinJung is a bitch.
JoAnne: I'd take a beating on my way to that show, wouldn't you? And did you SEE Big Kang? How awesome was THAT? (Ok, not Action Jun Ki awesome, but close.)
Überhot! He was awesome!!!
there's a thunderstorm even though there's not a single cloud in the
sky. Veggie is waiting in front of the make-up place for Min-jung. She
arrives with Jae-hee, in her wedding dress. Jae-hee receives a call from
Moony, and as he turns away, Veggie quickly makes her way towards
Min-jung, to give her a pair of rings. This, so Veggie believes, means
Min-jung will be happy in life. She tries to make Min-jung take the
rings, but she doesn't want them, so one gets flung onto the street.
Veggie runs after it.
JoAnne: And all the while I'm going, 'That make up place looks like a church. Who would arrive to get made-up wearing their gown and veil already? No one, that's who. That's the church, subbers. The church.'
Hahahaha, yeah, I was VERY confused. But ... where is everyone?
JoAnne: Some part of him knows.
He goddamn even SAID it - this is the same woman that abandoned Moony. That means: it's also the woman who abandoned their child.
And here comes the motorcycle of doom. Veggie Ahjumma down, Veggie Ahjumma down!!
JoAnne: Veggie Ahjumma and I have one thing in common. We did NOT see that coming.
Alright, I CANNOT wait for this wedding. Will it take place? Will it not take place? Let's take bets! Also taking bets for how much longer they can drag the Eun-bi mystery out. Bong2 could get amnesia, for example. That would prolong things. But you know what? I just realized that we have only 16 episodes to go. That makes me sad. I'm serious - I will miss this crazy drama.
JoAnne: Um, yeah, well ... when you said there's only 16 episodes left to go, my immediate thought was, "16? That's not enough time! We need more time, it's practically OVER.' And then I remembered that for most dramas, 16 episodes is an entire story, and actually too MUCH time. Sigh. But at least I now know that anytime you want me to comment on a KJH drama I will, regardless of length. Bring on a daily! (God no please don't.)
I love you.
