Falling for Innocence - Episode 14 (This is Not a Recap)

Yeah, yeah, it's cute. I won't say anything else anymore.
Yep, no point in getting yourself all worked up.  Just look at our beloved boy right there.

As if he weren't sunshine enough on his own...

Rants and Weekly Raves #39 (RAWR)

I am drowning in puppies. There will be men, soon, right? I need at least ONE fantasy that doesn't make me feel like I should make a confession.
You're describing my current problem with KDrama, JoAnne! Puppies just don't do it for me. Not one of them. I need them above 30 and post-army. Where are my guys?! And come on, Joo Sang-wook as weird-masked prosecutor doesn't count. DAMN, I want him in TEN goddamitcantheymakeithappenalready?! Jaehyus (formerly S@ki6): TEN was that good, eh?
It's complicated.

Falling for Innocence - Episode 13 (This is Not a Recap)

Why is it so shocking that the guy you're falling for has your ex-fiance's heart???! I don't get that. Fuck this "oh, but I can't sure whether I truly love YOU" shit! Who cares?! This whole plot is so AAARRLJLGH constipated/contrived. And SORRY, there is no investment company in the world who would go to those length to bankrupt a company. WHY WOULD THEY?! Bottom line: this drama went from very bad to EXTREMELY BAD. Over and out. (Okay, the Kang Min-ho coupons were very cute)
Yes, they were adorable. He is adorable. Every week, he's more adorable. His adorableness is in direct opposition to the horribleness of Gollum and this very unrealistic plot. Yes, I choose to argue that the business machinations are unrealistic, and I let slide the heart that somehow adds character traits and mannerisms to another human. Whatever!

Look at me. There's me and coupons. It's not all bad.

Falling for Innocence - Episode 12 (This is Not a Recap)

CutieSoo is EEEEEEEVIL. Over and out (=shortest summary of any drama episode ever)
He really is. It's very sad, in a way, for those of us who love CutieSoo. We even found a way to have sympathy for Aoki, remember? I guess it's good for him to get to play a different kind of character... sigh...

Does Yoon Hyun Min rue the day he accepted a role that would test our love for him?

kakashi: Jang Bori seems to be airing in Singapore! Every day, we get about 2500 additional hits on Bori Bori posts. I hope you're enjoying the crazy ride, people. I know we did. But no, Kim Ji-hoon... it's fine that you don't have a new drama. Do NOT SIGN for ANY WEEKENDERS.
JoAnne: It's been long enough though that I'm actually anxious for him to be in another crappy drama that will I will hate for a long time, but eventually grow to love. Or at least not hate.
Yes :( Poor baby. Give him work! Okay, if it's to be another family drama, so be it. Apart from that ... lots of new stuff starting these days! Which means lots of old stuff ending.
Hello, everyone!  S@ki6 here, soon to be switching to Jaehyus, because a fangirl's love never ends. 

Moonie! And the clone!

Unkind Women - Episode 24 FINAL (The SJR only version)

OH THANK GOD IT'S OVER! (So ... these women, you know how they're supposed to be unkind? But it's one big happy kind family in the end. I'd say: FAIL. Only Rim isn't there in the end. I think he went to America. And never came back).
I don't see the not-quite mistress. Did she die? (no, I think she was miraculously cured) I'll save my kind/unkind thoughts for the end of this.
We know these women aren't real because no woman would look that happy if Rim left.

Unkind Women - Episode 23 (The SJR only version)

Have you ever fallen asleep sitting up? It happens to me all the time now! It's scary.
I fell asleep once in the position of Parade Rest, holding an M16. More recently... while sitting down. In the bathroom.
I'M SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS (you are? I have no idea who these people are)

Falling for Innocence - Episode 11 (This is Not a Recap)

Alright, this is sooooooo sweeeeeeeet when it's sweet. But when it's not, it's so not. Just go away, stupid corporate stupidity.

50 Shades of Grey has hit Korea, apparently

블러드 Blood - Episode 20 FINAL (A FakeCap) WTF kind of ending is this

kakashi: A wonderful ending to a truly great drama!
JoAnne: Come down off the mountain, Kakashi. The thin air is affecting you.
Shuk: [drinking and humming] "Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away / If you could use some exotic booze / There's a bar in far Bombay....."

Falling for Innocence - Episode 10 (This is Not a Recap)

Oh dear, this drama is so bad if it isn't about SoNotPaksa and his Innocence. I might stop watching for real and go with our story. It has worked before.
Because I know what we like.

This. This is what we like. More, please.

becca: Hi, all!
Hi Becca! How's finals prep?
Finals are upon us! But I think the worst part is already over. :)
kakashi: Awwww, becca! Looking forward to having you back! In the land of the KDrama watchers and procrastinators (that would be me, currently).
Aww, reading that warms the cockles of my heart. ^__^ Also! Update! It's been a few days, and finals are over! I'm freeeee and ready to catch up on my dramas!
Shuk: I think this is the first RAWR I've done in a long time. Not that my life is any less busy, though, unfortunately. But maybe the warming weather gives me more energy to squeeze extra awake time.
bcook: hi! Been so long. I like what you did with the place.
Cookie!!!!!!! I miss you!
S@ki6 here: looks like I have to pick a new colour. :-)

Unkind Women - Episode 22 (The SJR only version)

This is now officially the drama that never ends. JoAnne, we will be stuck with it until the day we die. Sawry.
It helps that it's Rim's face. 
Rim wonders when it became his face we watched for, and not the apple butt

Falling for Innocence - Episode 9 (This is Not a Recap)

All that licking of things ... I mean lollipops. It makes me wonder whether Min-ho brushes his teeth often enough. He'll get cavities! Lollies are the worst.
I thought gum was the worst.

Behind the scenes, though, Jung Kyung Ho IS concerned about his dental health

Unkind Women - Episode 21 (The SJR only version)

I think it's about time to ask: what wrong with that teacher-woman who also happens to be Rim's mother? She's acting completely insane. I am pretty sure I would hate this drama if I watched it.
I haven't watched this in weeks - it was interfering with my ability to believe in the story WE are creating, which is much, much better.  I do keep forgetting there are other people in this drama, though.

Does she look more pale than normal?  Is she going to die in the drama?

블러드 Blood - Episode 19 (A FakeCap)

kakashi: I was spoiled by HanCinema! I'm sooooo aaaangry! I immediately blocked them on Facebook cause I can't have that happen again. Now, all the tension is gone and I was so going to enjoy this episode.
JoAnne:  Well I had no idea what was coming.  Although I do already know now that a lot of people die in the NEXT episode and that the ending sucks, but after this episode I really don't care.  And since I watched this episode before writing my comments for 16,17, or 18, I think my no longer caringness showed there.  Guess what? I don't care about that either.  This is now a Stew Cap.  I am stewing.
Shuk: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

Falling for Innocence - Episode 8 (This is Not a Recap)

In the wonderful world of Soon-Jung, you hire thugs to beat up protestors and you propose to a girl you have fancied forever even though she has told you very clearly she just wants to be friends. And there is much more WTF. Sigh. Still. We watch. And we feel for Min-ho. Even when he dry-humps a pillow.
I am laughing so hard right now because while I thought he looked funny, that is not what came to mind at that moment - but now I cannot un-see it that way.

I look 12, suck lollipops, and dry-hump pillows. Wanna date me?

Rants and Weekly Raves #36 (RAWR)


kakashi: My lovelies, I have not much to say. Maybe somebody else has watched something? I mean something more Korean? All my stuff is way down below in the "Other Stuff" section:)
JoAnne: I'm watching some stuff. I'm feeling very reclusive lately, though.
Hey, reclusive is good.
S@ki6: Hey Everyone! I've slowed down with the dramas. I think other than Hwajung and Sensory Couple, I'm not remembering the rest. :-P And my policy with TV is, if I forget about it, I don't watch it. 
PS: Since Falling for Innocence is the only drama I'm currently watching, I'll only put in Min-ho pictures. Sorry not sorry

Unkind Women - Episode 19 & 20 (The SJR only version)

Oh great, it's that time of the month. I mean year. Elections. Also, there's close to no Rim in 20 and that's why we're combining the two episodes.
Do they have elections every year? How do they get anything done?
Next season, on The Bachelor...

Falling for Innocence - Episode 7 (This is Not a Recap)

I continue to be amazed that I am so enthralled by a drama with such a 0815-script. Yeah, you got to look that one up, cause that's something only people in German speaking countries use. Also, we get to meet Gollum (that name is used here courtesy of maxqnz@maxqnz) in this episode! It's true!
I love this drama too and it's totally due to the actors, because the story isn't anything all that different. You're right about that. I did look up 0815 - do you know it refers back to the type of weapon German soldiers were issued? A totally ordinary, run of the mill thing. Until you get these guys involved and then... we fall in love.
It's good that we love him, Jung Kyung Ho thinks...but IS he really in an '0815' drama?
