JoAnne: Ok well we know I'm liking this little doofus of a drama, but I don't trust you.
Shuk: [gulping back a couple of soju shots]
Lots of discussion that is ALL LIES YOU LIE JAE-WOOK YOU LIAR about how he was soooo surprised when Ji Sang showed up with his pampire self and he couldn't reveal their shared fate because he was trying to find out those OTHER pampires, the totally bad ones that he is CERTAINLY not part of, no sir, he, Jae-Wook, has lived a lonely lonely life all alone. For 40 years, so apparently he'd like Ji Sang to think he was infected as a toddler, because he isn't a day over 45, Jae Wook isn't.
The fight scenes reminded me of Puppet Fight Theater from the Night Watchman's Journal, with bloody plastic instead of soji rice paper. Well, it is the modern age and even monsters have to adapt I guess.
Jae Wook is very busy doing the big savior hyungnim thing where he shields Ji Sang from the ugliness and takes him under his wing, all baby-bird/big bird.
And he juuuuust happens to have a jerry-can filled with the one thing that can destroy The Infected Ones. Coinkidink Alert DefCon 2!!
More lies from Jae Wook. Those vampires that he totally did NOT know used to hang out there, but he only discovered that this VERY day, my oh my, the coincidence.
Whups, I mean DefCon 1.
Ok you made me laugh, but it was nothing so risque - just Friend thinking out loud that maybe Ri Ta has a tiny baby bit of a crush on Ji Sang, who is a cool namja, which makes him a hot namja.
Were they trying to be subtle with the huge Christmas Tree-Topper Angel on the book case? And the Tree Of Life on the oddly placed end table not at the end of anything?
If I cannot stop giggling I cannot comment. I think the only thing that happens here is that Jae Wook invites the younger vampire over to his place that evening. (And yes, of course, at that point, the sex chair.)
And the whole "your life story is my life story - I think we may even have the same mom!" BS.
I like him too. Remember how we liked the Chief in Emergency Couple? (no, cause I never watched that) He kind of reminds me of him.
His ears seemed to have recessed.
Actually, we were talking about Vamp Boy's ears the whole time :D
It's better to have your own sex chair, yes.
Absolutely, so you can decide on microfiber, leather, or something more fluid-resistant like latex.
More Rita, more wondering about the weird dude with the self-healing properties and the low temperature. He himself can't sleep because he worries about what she thinks. I really like all these little tricks to fill 60 minutes. I recognize them cause of Anthony.
That bed doesn't look all that comfortable. What about sexy times to come? How will they manage?
Dislocate to the floor?
Soap. Slippery makes it better. Err, so I'm told. [shifty eyes]
Anticipation heightens the response. Something like 99% of sex happens in your head.
He's truly glorious when he sparkles, but it only activates when he's nude. This means only Luuvy and Friend get to see the glory.
If I know Pervvy, there's is probably a Youtube video posted out there.
He is asking Friend questions about Ri Ta... can a confession be far behind? Now he has confirmed that Rita's parents died, surely sympathy for her plight will tip his boat into the Sea of Love?
Depends on what's floating.
It would be nice if they actually did tell us what the experiment WAS in the Poor Ward. Uncle Rita is getting worse, yes. Not in an existential way, either.
Oh Great Omniscient Sensei, will this end with tiny fat baby vampires who have totally normal ears? The girl has liver cancer and she is PISSED about it.
I personally would not want to antagonize the people who will be using sharp objects on me when I am anesthetized.
Ji-sang is checking on the soon-pampire homeless dude, who is quite happy to be of such great help. So ... JoAnne, sub-watcher: WHAT is the story under which they're selling this to the hospital?! Homeless people being treated for what??!
They won't tell them anything, they won't share records, they won't even let the doctors treat their own patients. And it will soon become clear that they don't actually know what they're doing, either. So we know nothing. My assumption is that they are trying to create vampires, but that's stupid. They could just BITE them. Or who knows, just share any kind of body fluid, because they haven't talked about that other than to say that the virus can be transmitted human to human. So keep guessing, because it's bound to make more sense.
Wow, JoAnne unni, I want to live in your fantasy world! It seems quite logical.
Aww, a slightly touching moment. He confesses to her that yes, he has an illness.
He's been Kicked In The Butt By Love.
He won't give her details, but he does satisfy her curiosity about his cheek - yes, he heals fast. It's part of the disease. Because sure, a side effect of being sick is the ability to get better faster. Okay. But hey girl, Ri Ta, give him credit for very polite wrist grabs and hand captures. Maybe it's just Healer but I'm totally into hands these days.
Maybe she'll push them off the building when she becomes a vampire. Because so far, vampires in this drama crush necks and push people in front of cars, but they don't actually suck their blood.
Time for another surgery and I can't blame Ji-sang for feeling apprehensive ... will the drugs work?! Actually, NO. The bloodlust is so big, he can't even go near the operating room! From upstairs, Jae-wook is watching him struggle with interest. Hey, nice arms, dude!! Right when Ji-sang is about to rip a nurses throat open, Jae-wook intervenes and saves the day. I think he is totally not evil.
He's TOTALLY fucking evil. He WANTS Ji Sang to vamp out.
He is so evil, we have to call him Eeeevil.
It's just that he hadn't included diarrhea in the list of issues he was facing. Can't blame him, really, nothing turns a woman off sexy times like the hint of loose bowels.
Jae-wook is very fatherly and understanding with poor rattled Ji-sang. Those urges are okay, he tells him. It happens to us. I have something for you! Is it the sex-chair, the sex-chair, the sex-chair?! Ji-sang demands to know. Not yet, says Jae-wook. It's something that looks like urine but isn't. Just try it. It tastes like strawberries.
Well, when he first offered it, Ji Sang said no. But now here's Jae Wook sleazing up at every moment of weakness, offering the good stuff.
Well, you have to admit, from Pampire's point of view, VampDoc is cool as a cucumber while he's jonesing for some AB+. So he's probably ready to reach for almost any lifeline.
Because it's so much better to say 'I crave blood' than 'My bowels are out of control.'
Administrator tells Doctor Scruff about Uncle Rita's hands - and tells him to have a close look at what those weirdass new pale doctors are doing. She even has a spy!
I like Lady Admin. She's getting pissed, and for all the right reasons.
I hope she has a pressurized bug sprayer filled with holy water somewhere, just a little something something for those annoying insects.
It's clearly a domination thing. Completely inappropriate among co-workers, tsk, tsk.
You must learn how to control your urges, Jae-wook tells him. And we have to do something about your fat ears ... but later. For now, I have to show you something. He puts in a code into a huge safe, open it ... and reveals his ... (waaaait for eeeeeet)
Yuck, Eating someplace where there is a high possibility of aerosolized body fluids in the air?? Not to mention all sorts of other types of contamination, and ramyun juice flying off the ends of the noodles onto the microscope. Stupid stupid hospital people. You might as well lick the tabletop between slurps for a little added flavor) He wants to know, does Rita like Ji-sang? Are they going out together?! Yes, he is clearly jealous when she hears that they might have ... you know ... Rita's friend thinks "oh shit, now two men are after Rita and none are after me!". What she doesn't get is that Scruff isn't interested in Rita at all. He makes her look things up in a big tomb - and she discovers an old photo. Of ... him? Oh. So he is the son of the mentor that Jae-wook and Ji-sung Appa had? JoAnne? Help?
Yes, he is the child in the photo. What an amazing coincidence, no? Scruff and Friend are going to do some digging of their own. Yayyyyyyyyy because this means they're going to be part of the Scooby Gang, which of course we knew anyway, but you see how the allies are drawing in? Lady Admin, Ri Ta, Scruff, Friend... and I'm thinking at some point they'll rally the three
But how many are redshirts? Is Sidekick gonna die by the throaty-crushy hands of VampDoc?
Okay so not pee, blood. With all the red blood cells removed. That way you get all of the good nourishing stuff you need, but you don't smell like half-rotted steak. And living on this has the added advantage of regulating your body temperature because it basically gives you a very bad flu and fever that you just learn to live with. It also helps you not make whale noises so you can go undetected by other vampires unless you're distracted and lose control a bit - like what happened on the first day when Jae Wook was speaking to the auditorium full of doctors. Except hello, Jae Wook, you just said not too long ago that you spent your life a lonely vampire with no one around except for recently, when those bad guys showed up.
Wait. Is that a refrigerator full of me?? Are my 132 units of platelets turned into some type of Vampy Extasy??? And I don't even get to keep the chair I donate in. [pout]
I think at this point Jae Wook was assuring him that this blood was responsibly sourced from totally non-GMO free-range humans who were farmed ethically and paid a fair price for their labor.
They got mine for free, dammit. But I do spend three hours in the special chair, with Netflix and a 5-dollar gift card to Starbucks, so that's something.
I like the red around his eyes.
I wonder if it's roofied.
But...it's gotta be good if it's made out of me!!
Jae Wook cannot understand how Ji Sang is holding out. Because he's GOOD, man. And you are CORRUPT.
It's the memorial day for her parents. Since she's a career woman, she can't be bothered to do that altar of food thing. (Plus I suppose it matters that that is a Buddhist thing (right?) and she's in a chapel with a manteau on, so she's Catholic for sure.) Instead, she and her uncle come to the chapel and say prayers and talk to her parents a little bit. He says he has to come because he needs to take credit for what a good job he's done raising her and she laughs, because she knows she's a snobby little snoop but basically has a good heart. It's clear that these two really care about each other. She's going to be sad to find out her uncle is in the League of Evil Enablers, but not as sad as she will be when she finds out that the Church frowns on Human/Vampire marriage.
Jae Wook can't understand why Ji Sang refuses to take advantage of his friendly, no-strings-attached, totally altruistic offer of free blood in unlimited quantities.
I like that Pampire told him diplomatically to pack sand.
He's decided to leave the hospital since his health is compromised, and Sad Cancer and Sad Cancer Wife are pleading with him to just stay and help them, but of course he says no and Ri Ta is highly incensed by that.
You could tell she was incensed? I thought she was insensible. She knows he's having issues, even if she thinks it's just his intestinal track.
Ha, the reality is so much better. They're basically drawing battle lines. No love lost between these two. You know what would be awesome? If she turned out to be Queen of the Vampires and he had no clue right up until the moment when she ripped out his heart with her bare teeth and then ate it in front of him, smiling, while his body shriveled up like a raisin and he screamed like a little girl.
I like the way Jo thinks, but I'm guessing since the back door doesn't work, she'll find a window. That is one determined lady.
Run, Forest Lovers, run!
GLOVES!! GLOVES AS A MINIMUM WOULD BE GOOD HERE, DOCTOR-TYPE PEOPLE!!
CommentsWhere are the friggin sex-chair scenes?! Come on, drama, that was the best stuff!
I like it when Ahn Jae-hyeon does his little almost smile. He looks kinda cute then. I like it that they turned down Gu Hye-sun's crazy overacting. When I say "I like it", I mean it like when you're sifting through mud to find a gold nugget in the river and you find a pebble that is kinda round, but not fully, but you see that there are pebbles in the mud and some of them could actually be round. You give up on the gold though.
So it's like you're Saki and this show is Wang Wook, except you never liked him in the first place?
It's very hard to comment on this right now because it's a week old, no pictures at the time of writing, and you're confusing me deeply between what really happened and what was made up and WHEN it actually happened. (I knew that would happen. I completely think our April Fool's version of Age of Feeling is the true story half the time.)
Anyway, I went back and changed a bunch of comments because it became clear I was ahead of myself, so if I accidentally spoil any of you, in the words that Jae Wook would like very much to say to Ji Sang: Suck it up! (No, actually, I would apologize. I love you guys, and I don't want Mary making a SqueeBrief that you can use to mute me.)
More crappy unrealistic right-angles-to-reality hospital procedures in this episode. But I'm glad that at least we moved a little bit in this constipated plot.
