JoAnne: And I will try not to use all my best reactions during the live tweet but people, seriously, the horror is real... I may not be able to hold it in.
Shuk: [sigh] The things we do for you, our faithful squeeglets.
You know what he's a twig and back in 1994 those phones were HEAVY. Give the child some credit.
Not any heavier than his ham-handed acting. And David Lee Roth was much better at it.
Plus he's wearing Jackie Onassis' favorite pair of sunglasses.
His face looks that that standard alien head with the big eyes and pointy chin. And facial expression.
So this part is confusing, because based on the conversation you didn't hear, that picture of a grave? The one that looks like the one he dug up? That is that grave, but dug up 20 years earlier. They're spending so much on that classy CGI that they just re-used the photo.We're so enthralled by his vampire charms we won't notice, right? Lemme guess: that grave is actually ground zero for his parents. Although none of the adults appeared to have been archaeologists, but whatever. Minor detail.
I didn't pay attention; I was too busy removing your extra spaces in between the sentences in the above paragraph (thank you, says the double-spaces police).
What a handsome bastard he is, yes. Shall we just refer to him as Handsome Bastard?
When I see the word "sacral", I think "butt". [giggle] He has the best hair so far, for sure.
He's already Doctor PissyPants to me.
She already annoys me. You are a physician in a hospital, someone barges frantically into your office, and the first thing you do is bark at him? How about thinking maybe there's a critical patient in need of your (no doubt dubious) skills, there, chica? He even uses the word "Urgent" but she doesn't care and goes back to flipping pages. Pfui! Learn tatting. you might be better at it than this.
Damn, her acting is bad even when she just flicks pages.
I loathe her on sight. And since she only puzzled me in BoF and I vaguely liked her in Angel Eyes, for the moment I'm going to pretend that what I loathe is her character, and not her incredibly inappropriate character choices.
They look like welder's goggles to me, And yes, that's pretty fragile for eyewear. And yes, inappropriate behavior for a doctor. Has Writer-nim even seen the inside of a hospital?
I like Scruffy Doc, and the girl next to him was the cute investigator in Choi and Prejudice. But nah, let's see how they play out before we bother learning their names. Also: calling her a bit pissy is like saying every now and then drama writers follow a formula.
LOL, JoAnne. To me, she's just arrogant and mean. Throwing things and having a tantrum, because a fellow doctor has concerns over a risky procedure? I don't know what makes her tick, but I wish it would blow up and take her out!
But wait! One of the little gems you missed, watching raw: He demands of her, among other things: his drinking water must always have a PH of 8; his meals must be catered in, since he won't eat cafeteria food; he requires box seats to some baseball team, and they must be near the dugout. She agrees to these things with the dazed smile of a woman in thrall to a vampi... oooh, I see what they did there.
Star-powered people have the right to request that stuff. Of course, it's usually done before signing a contract.
That's not how you pronounce Appleby? (It is? DAMN, his English is better than mine!!!) I googled, but that was pointless. Except now I can tell you, Squeeglets, they pulled out NO STOPS when it comes to realistic medical writing. There is, in fact, an Appleby Procedure, and it is, in fact, used in cases just like this.
I thought it was just a restaurant. They have good queso dip! Still, Google Fu skills do not a script make.
Mostly they're like 'Who the fuck is he? Who died and left him boss? He's too young to be the boss!' And if you're Ri-Ta, it's like 'Pout! Sneer! Flounce!'
And 'He's saying exactly what I want to say to that snot-nosed biatch!'
And with that small gesture, we are reminded that the bampire is human, too, and our hearts are touched. Genius.
The bampire speaks truth to Ri-Ta. I think we see a tad of amusement, but that could just be the overlay of Lee Jeong Suk and Kang Sora I keep applying to the hospital scenes. Jo Jae-yoon is having a hissy fit composed of equal parts jealousy and insecurity, and if he drinks and walks into things I will cheer. Kyung-In is still smiling the lobotomized smile.
I hate her with the fire of a thousand burning suns. Also, Kim Gap Soo is her uncle. I think her parents were killed by that mini Blue Man Group in the forest.
Either that, or they're now pampires.
She's a big brat. She says that she doesn't use her uncle's influence in any way, and yet, throws her weight and acts like her poop doesn't stink. Blech. Where's her Truck Of Doom? Where's her amnesia? And, OMG, being flirtatious and NOT PAYING ATTENTION when you already know it's a riskier-than-normal procedure? Your uncle is the ONLY reason you have a hospital job when you should be serving Jollibee Padala by bicycle.
I think Shuk hates her.
I will chop her into tiny pieces and feed her to the CGI wolves.
Her freakout was laughable at best. His save was totally contrived at best. This is the worst.
He's too skinny, and not in the sometimes-sexy way that the King of Puppies is. In fact, I don't consider this kid a puppy at all. He's just sort of there in my Kdrama Universe, like the free toy you get with a McDonald's meal and immediately throw away because you couldn't care less about it. Unless it's a mini one of those little stuffed animals everyone went crazy for 20 years ago. (He's not one of them.)
Nope, keep that juvenile ab-less body away from me.
I love you. That was perfect.
She's pissed off that he saved the patient's life. Whom she put into jeopardy by not paying attention to that patient on the operating table AFTER the rest of the doctors thought the whole thing was a bad idea.
She hates that new guy so much! She vents to her doctor friend, Choi Soo-Eun (Jung Hye-Seong), who is a total traitor, cause she thinks Ji-sang is totally sexy - like the rest of the female staff, of course. She then butts some more head with Ji-sang, who treats her like a dumb secretary and thinks she's the most untalented, hateful woman he has ever seen. She does help him in that belief by acting very snippy and aloof all the time. Bottom line: they don't like each other. I think we get it.
He gives her a pass on her grievous error as a 'welcoming day' gift from him. Her only duty is to replace his designer original one-of-a-kind glasses that he stood in line for hours to buy when he was in Chile.
Should have used EBay.
Luuvy stuns me with his natural acting and brilliant character choices. The friend is funny, actually. I wonder how he came to know Ji Sang's deepest darkest secret?
Maybe the girl in pink was actually him. His parents wanted a girl, so they forced him to wear ugly pink hats and ugly pink sweaters. But when his eyes met his forest savior, he new he would never have to wear pink again. That's a look of love, right there. Or Luuv.
He sleeps on a literal bed of mist. Like Ri-Ta, I cannot even.
So his internal temperature is 25C / 77F, but he needs a dry-ice bed to sleep? Is he secretly pyrokinetic? Maybe we should call Hellboy.
If her pouty little scream continues to be her go-to 'acting choice' I may have to hurt a tiny puppy. Don't make me do it, Ri-Ta!
Ugh. I think my face is turning purple from everything I want to say about her (but can't). Why is she even breathing?? It's such a waste of perfectly good oxygen that could be used to create rust somewhere. Grrrrrr.
And mist. Don't forget the mist.
He gets up and stretches himself. Really? Because, in my copy, this is where he watches his mom's advice about hiding, with the baby video and the crying. And then, we're with Jae-Wook. I like how this drama is jumping from scene to scene so effortlessly. Jae-wook has special yellow stuff to drink in a specially secured fridge/safe!! Damn ... does he have the cure?! Ah, no, it's some kind of drug, cause he passes out immediately, smiling happily. He's totally tripping.
Dude is tripping BALLS.
Kind of looks like he's drinking his own pee...
Luuvy is concerned that Ji Sang doesn't eat properly. Also, I can't remember if it was this scene or not where Luuvy demonstrated his skills at engaging with women, which are based on those of the room-mate. One gem: 'What color are your underpants?' See how whimsical? How can you not love them both?
Plot Device R2D2. I'm just waiting for the exposition to spout from that speakerbox. Plus, I'm predicting Sidekick bites it in the end, and Pamipire's only solace is talking to that thing. Also, it has a secret compartment with a
She bought him a new pair. At first I thought she must be a miracle-worker, considering they were limited edition, purchased in Chile - but no, she bought them from the kiosk out front. Bampire got played in Chile. I love the subtle way they remind us that deep down, he's still just a fallible young man. He is not just bampire!
That woman should not be allowed to one up a Mario Brothers mushroom, let alone Pampire.
She chose to interview there because they gave her mother 8 months of life (suffering from uterine cancer, how enjoyable!) rather than the two months promised elsewhere. He hired her because 'people who look like her don't need much sleep.'
Sounds about right for the hiring practises of THIS hospital. I snorted milk when Pita said feelings are not needed to be a surgeon. And what's with the merengue music?
Ok that bit made me laugh. They proudly give their names to which he responds, 'I only need your positions. It's not like we're going to be friends.'
The side of my mouth might have twitched upwards. Might have.
Ji-sang struts through the corridors, when he suddenly ... hears something, a faint, wailing sound. "Wailing" sound? Or "Whaling" sound, because it sounded like a humpback call to me. Or maybe I'm tripping on my diet cream soda. It is the color of Handsome Bastard's Tripp-N-Drink.
Is it genius doctor and drug addict Jae-wook, who is giving a witty, charming (used-car salesman-eque) talk in front of all the doctors? Yes!!! Ji-sang enters the lecture hall and the two men lock eyes. Outside, they meet - Ji-sang refuses to shake Jae-wook's hand, his instincts tells him DANGEREU.
I have a question. If one bampire recognizes the proximity of another by the buzzing in his ears, why did he not have that with his parents? IS the Handsome Bastard a bampire? He wasn't drinking blood. I bet it was straight plasma, though, because he's hardcore. You can tell by his steely glare and his fake bonhomie.
Wait. Jae-wook is the hospital manager, so how can he talk about fulfilling his duty as a surgeon? If you hold the purse strings, you don't hold the scalpel. That's what happens when you transfer to Administration, Except at 34 번가의 기적 병원.
I've come to the conclusion that he's maybe a fallen angel. The music gives it away and all the heaven-stuff in his apartment.
He should have called his IT troubleshooter immediately; a changed password means a hack. Ooh, okay I admit I kind of care, at least 1/100000th of an angstrom more than I did before. Wonder what the half-life of my interest will be, And if that seemed like a math-science mishmash, you're right. Still less confusing than this thing.
When you hide the lower half of his face, expertly shade his cheekbones, and turn his eyes green, THEN he becomes puppy material.
Maybe the mask was made of fairy blood and baby animal fur, too? Like his scarf?
CommentsAnother incredible cliffhanger! Wow, the suspense is KILLING me! Will he be able to control his nature? Will he kill everybody? Jae-wook is such an evil dick for testing him that way.
Can Monday get here soon enough, Kakashi? Not for me!
Where's the 2nd container of New and Improved??
You might have guessed, episode 2 was really good! NOT. Not one bit of it was good. Not even Ji Jin-hee, the poor man. You know, when the majority of actors act really badly, there is a rush to the bottom. Why even try, man, why even try.
Gu Hye Sun needs money to finance her next gallery exhibition; Ahn Jae Hyun was flattered anyone knew his name and thought to ask, and Ji Jin Hee got caught doing something naughty with an intern at his management company, so he couldn't refuse the part.
Then what is our excuse for watching? And how did my eonni's get me involved in this? I think I may need to stock up on diet cream soda to make sense of this. Or soju. Or both.
|Hey Rocky! Let's watch them pull a plot out of a hat!|
