becca: Can they just get on with it already?
Lafer: Geez, I feel like I'm watching another episode of We Got Married where everyone is just begging for a kiss.
JoAnne: You know, he always describes himself as a genius...does anyone else ever? HAD anyone else ever? Or is it all in his head?
becca: He's probably smart when it comes to academics and business. But emotionally? He's kind of an idiot.
Lafer: Well, I have to admit I burst out laughing at "alien hand syndrome." Sometimes you have to give in to the stupidity.
Sigh. They are gorgeous together, aren't they?
Best moment of the episode. I think. I don't really remember the rest.
He could definitely cause even a talkaholic like me to be left speechless. But I love that she didn't really buy it and was getting all sneaky to prove him wrong.
Fine does not begin to describe that man.
I died laughing when he stood their flexing ALL his muscles.
So hysterically immature, these too.
Should we do a Kickstarter to get you some more? Get some for ourselves, too, while we're at it?
She can't have any of mine! They are MINE. *hoarding "w"s like there's no tomorrow*
These two are back and forth faster than a ping pong ball.
I swore. That man needs to go away.
And this is where my interest in the episode took a dramatic, frustrated downturn.
I thought that moment was too good to be true.
Remember way back when we thought he sort of seemed nice and it was puzzling us?
We were giving the show too much credit. This guy is so one-dimensional, he's barely a character.
When he is on the screen, I'm painting my toenails, making cookies, folding wash, etc etc etc.
Sara goes to the supermarket with Dick Husband. Watching in "disguise": Tae-hee. When Kang-joon hugs Sara and kisses her on the forehead, Tae-hee almost explodes with jealousy, but lies to himself that it's not that, but chivalry.
Nobody's buying your bullshit, Tae Hee.
PWAHAHAHA!! Okay, that was funny, Show.
Kakashi, how will you ever see Joo Sang Wook in a serious role again?
Let's talk about that next year when we're finally getting TEN3!
This is so awesome.
I wish their revenge plan was a little more interesting. Yes, it's nice to watch him freaking out, but it could be so much better if I didn't get the sense that they just think "what would annoy him?" and do that. I want to see him gaslighted! Drive the man INSANE. Be DEVIOUS.
It's hard to pull off a gaslight when the comedy aspect is so high. Here's where we must just delight in the cute little looks Sara and Tae-hee sneak to each other.
Yeah, this show is not interested in sticking to reality.
Through the whole scene, I was stuck trying to figure out how they got Geum-ran's voice to say those things. She didn't say them before she died, and it sounded waaaay too natural to be a composite of other recordings.... *sigh* I shouldn't over-think this.
I had that problem, too. Her voice was "changed" right? But in reference to my comment in the last recap (and probably every one so far) just use this mantra - NOTHING MAKES SENSE, so don't even try.
It would work for me.
Actually, that would make my breathing go completely hey wire. Like heavy panting, I think.
Here's what I can't understand: THAT FAMILY.
Chae-yeon must have super-hearing to have heard all that from so far away.
She's a perfect match for Kang Joon. Her reactions are about as lame.
- blegh) activities have been reported to Tae-hee by Awesome Assistant (love him - he gets ALL the heartbeams). Who, by the way, has the evidence against Kang-joon and was told to hand it over to the police. As Tae-hee looks at his Grandma whom he hasn't seen in twenty years, he gets those heart-pains again (which are due to "Broken Heart Syndrome"). They are so bad he cannot do anything when the police arrive, sirens blaring, and arrest Halmoni.
I think we should ask someone with Pinocchio Syndrome whether Broken Heart Syndrome actually exists.
So. Bored. I care so little about Tae-hee's family's story, I yawned every time it came up. I don't even care that he cares.
Yawn.....I missed a spot on my 3rd toe
I did notice that his head is pretty big. Did you notice that? (You did a while ago already, during our Cunning Single Lady's squeecaps!)
That hug went on forever.
When she helps him home, they're observed by Chae-yeon. She hears that Sara is looking for her mom - and that Tae-hee calls her Ahjumma.
Again - SUPER-HEARING.
Doesn't she have anything to do besides lurk? I thought she had an important job.
(I'm not sure they meant it like that...). Because they're both so traumatized, they decide they need each other. They can't part yet. Okay, it's extremely silly, but also very very cute.
Whatever it takes. 'Oh, it might rain a week from Tuesday and I don't have an umbrella.' 'Well then obviously I have to stay nearby since I have an umbrella you can share.'
Excuses, excuses. Just kiss already!! Make out! Where are the sheksi times??
Cute silly is OK with me. Neither one is married in real life, right? (calculating the possibility of a real kiss in this drama)
So is she going to leave this town and start a new life? Or just suddenly be someone else, but right here where she's been all along?
This is what's been bothering me for episodes now: when Sara trashed the house, she took a bunch of jewelry and was wearing one of those necklaces when the video was taken. I kept expecting one of the family to recognize it, but they've all seen the video now, and no one noticed!! So why'd you make it seem so important at the time, Show? Why??
Maybe this is where we start with part 2 - Sara's career as an eating model managed by Evil Han. Or not. Who knows how this show will go.
Looks like Tae Hee's not the only genius.
She figured that out and accepted it way too easily. These people are weird.
You'd think she'd be freaked out if she came to that conclusion, like maybe she's the one losing her mind? I mean how many people do you know have had complete makeovers, even their voices?
CommentsSilly, silly, silly. Love Joo Sang-wook and Han Ye-seul together. There's feels. The rest is still shit.
Yes, but it's shit that I watched because there was a lot of Joo Sang Wook and Han Ye Seul.
I watch because even though it's a terrible role and he's doing very badly in it, I feel obligated to support Jung Kyeo-woon since no one else will. I can't abandon him to my fellow squeecappers' hatred!
Becca, I admire your loyalty, but I'd have to watch 20 hours of him being adorable (if that's even remotely possible) to convince me. But I actually like this show for what it is - cute and silly sexual chemistry. And ridiculous lines like "alien hand syndrome."
