I'm tired of the band aid. There better be a tattoo under there.
Shuk: It's a tattoo of a pair of lips, two punctures, and script that reads "I Love You Mom"
#JaeWookMustDie Also, I had to laugh at that expression on his face. It's like he's never been touched by a woman before. I dunno, maybe he hasn't. Maybe it's always been Luuvy and Friend. Or possibly he just didn't know that she could calm him down like that, but whatever.
The weird angelic music when they touched hands was weird...and, um angelic. And clearly I watched it with DramaFlu subs because Pampire called for the Hematoma Department. But somehow terrible subs make for bearable watching.
I think what they said was that he was given a medication that had this unfortunate reaction due to an underlying, undiscovered condition. See what I mean when I say they are TERRIBLE researchers?
They called it a unknown virus, but given the hangeul language, it almost sounded like "unknown Vampirus". And I loved the fact that the patient is bleeding profusely with a potential compromised airway, appears to be having seizure activity, and three doctors are chatting away like they are discussing their next tee time at the Death Doctors Country Club. Oh AND discussing the possibility that he's highly contagious while standing next to the bed that's covered in blood- and snot-covered linens.
Well, he's at least room temperature. They were sitting around putting two and two together about the whole situation over in Homeless, and coming up with pretty close to four. These rebels aren't dumb. Well, they may be just average in intelligence, but hey - in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.
I like that.
She is scared shitless of him. I can't remember if this is the first or second time he trots out his 'I'll give you this mistake, but the next one won't be forgiven.' speech. In not so many words, he basically tells one underling after another that he can take them out of this world pretty quickly. I think this is the second time we're hearing the speech. First one was when the first patient had to be disposed of.
Did I just hear a truck engine turn over? And so-called isolation is a shower curtain. Where's the disposal gown and mask and gloves? And why am I back to talking about a show that uses gamer dice rules for hospital personnel behavior? Roll 3d6 and anything below a 17 denotes complete stupidity,
Aww, he's cute when he smiles. Scruff is wearing Ji Sang down, slowly but surely.
Second Generation buddies. Yay!
Yeah, that's pretty much how it went. Lots of talk about trust, misplaced trust, shit or get off the goddamn pot, cold day in hell, twisting in the wind, that kind of thing.
I'm pretty sure hackles were raised too,
It's too soon after Lady Admin had a go at him. He's feeling defensive about his special project.
Liar Game Doctor was promised by Jae Wook that when he leaves, he is going to put Liar Game Doctor up as his replacement - and hey, he could really use some support keeping people in line around here, by the way. So at this point, Liar Game is so far up Jae Wook's butt that you can barely see the toes of his Crocs, and he's just here blowing smoke.
I'm sure our Greek chorus of cardboard doctors are good for something, but for the life of me I'm not sure what.
Pampy Boy is thinking ... thinking hard, which gives the production a chance to use about one minute of flashbacks. Suddenly, girl intern appears in front of him and offers him a Müesli Bar - he looks so weak. After resisting a bit, he takes it. Why so gruff all the time, Pampy? She lingers and thanks him very much for giving her this chance - she is trying hard and will try harder. He so doesn't give a shit. But he says a few nice words to pick her up, which makes her giggle and blush ... and Rita gets her first little jealousy fit, cause she's walked in on their conversation.
That is EXACTLY what happened. He compared her to an unusual bug, which freaked her out, but he meant it sincerely - she is a rare breed. He was totally charmed by her, I think. Ohhhh, maybe SHE'S an evil vampire.
Maybe she's the Queen Vampire, and Auntie Admin is her assistant.
I don't blame her - he was completely over the top. Told her that she shouldn't think that just because she'd been there for years that he'd forgive anything, and she should back the F*** up because it was none of her business. She's just an employee, and if she pushes the issue the next step will be a formal reprimand. Which, ouch. Because clearly she doesn't think of this as just a job or think of him and Ri Ta as just co workers.
His meanface is really mean, especially when she is the only voice of reason in the upper echelon of the staff. But Uncle doesn't exactly want reason, now, does he.
Nah, this scene is like in the Grinch when his heart starts to expand because little Cindy Lou Hoo gives him an apple or some such thing. The little girl was saying how sad she felt because her dad was in so much pain and that it would be better for him to just let go, but he can't let go because of her. She overheard people on the ward saying that, and it made her feel really bad and guilty because even as little as she is (next to exact quote) she knows it would be better for her father to die, at this point.
Poor kid. I admit to feeling a bit of feeling towards the show because of that little girl.
The little girl wants to die and is refusing to eat. Ri Ta is calling her bluff.
She's an orphan with uncaring relatives, which I guess is sad, but she's a little biatch, which balances that. Or skews it to Pillow Suffocation Mode.
Intern girl thinks Rita is really cool - she wants to be like her when she grows up! Hence, she follows her around and asks her where she buys her clothes. Time for bitchy Rita to come out again, just in case we were starting to think that Gu Hye-sun had actually toned down that whole entitled-bitch thing! How dare someone lowly as her ask where she gets her clothes?! She can't even afford to step into a store like that! Forgeeeeet it.
Substitute 'look at Ji Sang' for 'buy fancy clothes' and you have it right.
And we are now the snake, consuming our own selves. The recap directs the comments which influences the recap. I love it! Plus I don't really remember what they talked about but it was something which further solidified Ji Sang's innate humanity and strengthened his desire to remain so.
"Death is a doorway. Think before you knock on it."
Not leaving. Throwing down a gauntlet. She has always protected the hospital, and she will always the protect the hospital, and he's just some fancy pants fly by night and she will take him DOWN, brother, oh yes she will take him DOWN. Plus, the tree was a gift she received from Evil Uncle on her first day of work, and when he gave it to her, he told her he wished that she would work there for as long as that tree would be growing. Awww. He totally tapped that, back in the day.
Maybe it's time for her to branch out. Just saying. She is going to wield the sword that will behead his ambitions.
She is absolutely lovely in purple with her mouth shut. Also, she knows he's 'ill' and she wants to help.
I think...this might be where Friend confesses that Pampire was asking about Ri Ta.
At least she wasn't eating there this time. [shudders]
Yeah, Friend and Luuvy were providing options for the next move, but Ji Sang is gonna stay. We knew he would.
At first I thought it was some strange woman we didn't know, then I thought it was her from the hospital, and now I can't remember who it was, but yeah, he does say that Ji Sang is the first (and only) pure Vampire, born from Vampire Parents. That he is, in fact, THE mutation of the virus, since Jae Wook ahd been trying over and over for years to get little Vamp Babies from all kinds of combos of people and vamps. He also says that Ji Sang is actually mutating right now, and that his full potential is unknown to everyone, including himself. Plus, he's the only vampire ever who has never used blood.
In Sanguino Veritas. But, for the record, it seems stupid to tempt the boy into drinking your ShukPlatelet Cocktail, and thereby destroying his value as a pure vampire. But he's not exactly firing on all cylinders. Must be the sex chair.
Rita is in a bookstore ... looking at vampire literature. Ahahahaaa, yes. I was wondering how long it would take her ... but she's a scientist! Cannot think silly things! Cannot! Move awaaaay from that book section, move away! Well, she ends up buying the whole store, cause she's rich like that. And as she reads up on vampire lore, she must admit ... it kinda fits. Kinda.
Good thing she didn't know that The Boy in the Forest was a vampire, huh, or she'd be a quivering pair of ovaries about to explode right about here.
Ji Sang tells Jae Wook he needs to stick around for a couple of days and could he give him just a few days supply, pretty please? Jae Wook is stupid and unsuspicious and provides him with several bags.
How on earth does a hospital prevent the Chief of Bruises (isn't that Hemotoma, Shuk, a bruise?) from entering a hospital ward?
Yes. And my soul is black and blue from watching this. And what's with the evil spinet music any time those graves are given air time? I feel like I should be seeing the Edward Gorey Opening Theme to "Masterpiece Mystery".
Funny, because she does say he owes her and she wants information as payback and he does say no, he'll give her something better. (Body fluid exchange? For scientific purposes, of course)What could be better than information, Ji Sang? Get with the program! This is the information age! I think this is also the point where she tells him her childhood forest story, but as she recounts it she exaggerates it: double the number of dogs, triple the length of his leap, and it ends with his compliments and kisses, all of which make Ji Sang laugh, and each of which he questions. If I were her, I think I'd have noticed his response.
TWELVE? Really? I think Ji Sang is trying to figure out if Scruff is good or bad.
She tells him he's doing so well, it's time to go out. What fun thing does he want to do? He wants to eat, he's so hungry, he says. She tells him he deserves something delicious and asks him what he wants, and I know it, in that split second before he replies: Blood Sausage Stew. She tells the poor guy it's okay for him to leave but he has to go through that secret side door for some reason. Whatever, he's in a trance anyway.
Soondae is better than a Flying Wallenda with a side order of Mitsubishi tire tracks.
It's his goodbye meal, but she's too busy to take him somewhere nice plus she doesn't actually care all that much. So says she. She wants to talk to him, but he has no interest in talking with her, really. And oh by the way, he's decided not to leave. But thanks for the soda.
This is where she talks about the 35 CGI wolves and the 190cm tall boy that saved her and taught her tonsil hockey.
Oooh, they are suspicious of each other now.
Zombie: Soooooooooooooondae, sooooooooooooooondae
I always like a "you show me yours and I'll show you mine" moment.
Ji Sang thought he was the one who put up the info on the secure website, but Scruff never did that, and if it was there it must have been there for a really long time. Scruff ends up telling him that his father was the doctor back then, but I don't recall Ji Sang explaining how he had the picture in return.
I loved the cartwheel. I wonder if he did his own stunts. He did NOT stick the landing. What is UP with vampires who have to cause car accidents to kill people? What kind of vampires are they Vegan?
They got a good discount at the local Enterprise Rent-A-Deathmobile but they want to make sure they still get their money's worth.
Only his director knows for sure.
I can't believe we aren't even half-way through the projected run yet. [sobs]
CommentsCan we make Scruff the protagonist? I like the mystery that surrounds him. It's kinda like a spin-off, you know? Blood - the Scruff Chronicles. It shows him and his adventures after he leaves the hospital broken-hearted because nobody ever loved him.
Aww, you don't think he and Friend will get together at some point? I like her. I like him. They would be cute together.
I would just like him to survive, relatively unscathed.
