Thumping Spike - Episode 9 (A Squeecap)
kakashi: Oh! Yes! The thing I hate MOST in literature/entertainment has always been the good person being falsely accused of a horrible thing they haven't done. HATE IT!
I only hate it when I can think of 17 different ways they could END THE PROBLEM immediately, but don't.
Look at those beautiful colors in that gym! Let's climb higher to see better! *climbs tree*
Too bad, I'm here first. *pushes you off*
(rushes to get first aid kit)
It's those guys that die first in battles, you know, extras. Did I ever tell you guys I have a childhood neighbor who went to Hollywood to live his dream as an actor but that the only role he ever got was as an extra in "Thin Red Line" and that they finally cut out all the scenes in which he was crawling through the mud?
Nope, this is new information. How has he been supporting himself all this time?
Could he be one of these extras?
Next scene we get to the match. Our guys don’t play the first game well and lose. Notice, I said that they don’t play well not that they were outplayed. Se Ra, my Olympic coach in the making (love her), notices this as well. She asks them if they think the other team plays like a first place team. Jae Woong even asks now if they are really in first place. She says that Hyunchang is playing like a first place team and that our Daehan boys are playing like a last place team.
I actually hate sports dramas. All that tension! But I really like that floor. Look!
It looks like it's floating on a pool.
Me too, but it seems to be effective? Anyway, lesson, kids: in sports, about 50% if not more is about the psychology. Have another shot of the beautiful floor!
There's a floor under all those cute puppies?
If you guys are struck by the floor, you should watch more volleyball games, especially professional ones in Korea.
Warm fuzzy feelings. Yes, winning feels great!
I just swallowed a bug. It kinda takes the edge off the celebration.
Attitude, darling Rim, attitude!
It's amazing how little attention I pay to Rim when my Giant Puppy is around.
Awwww, he wants to join the team again! Awwwww.
Or he's going to do something crappy.
Very sorry, dude. Second lead. Not much can be done about it.
Next time, sweet puppy. Rim waited a long time to get the girl. This is just a quick webtoon (although very well done). Your turn will come.
Really, it needs to come soon. He is good in everything, and (like I've said) MUCh better than that other guy from 5urprise.
OMG get a room. All that flirting!
Forget the flirting. Nice extended look at Rim's legs, which I really like.
Add him to our "men who run well" list.
OMG hormone alert!!! All that running and then this!
Just wait, someone will point out how this is tantamount to a sexual violation since she hasn't given consent. Oh wait, no...that would be on another website. Here we're thirsty. And reasonable.
I DEMAND tea!
Definitely not. I thought he would be beat up or something, our guy. But that usually only happens when it's right before a match and then we should think he's not going to be able to play.
Yeah, this stinks of scandal, not physical injury. Timing is everything!
Listen to the man, Se Ra. He's a high schooler but if you look closely, you will see the man just underneath that youthful surface. Also, major bonding. A lot of touching.
I'd like to see the man underneath...
What a bitch that Secretary is!!!! Did our mouth-nose jerk know about this??!
I'm thinking not, probably. He didn't give a whiff of evil CEO, just kind of assy. And this stunt reeks of jealous underling.
Kim So Eun, and she's pissed.
Maybe he's doing it for tax reasons? You know, evasion?
If he turns up in Squad 38 I'm going to laugh.
He is in it! He is a fellow tax collector!!!
He's one of the group who's been scammed.
I don't know, but this really seems like scandal-material, doesn't it?! Coach falls in love with her almost underage student while living in the house with him? I don't know.
Yes, instead of the made-up scandals we see every day, this seems actually a bit like it could qualify if you didn't know the reality of it.
Free beer in the pub next door?
He's actually 30, so there's no problem?
Very nice cheek muscles there, Rim. And frankly, I don't get her little speech. What are "all the difficult decisions that she has made"? To move into a house full of (often) half-naked boys?
Yeah, nothing hard about that. I mean-no, never mind.
As you said above, this is scandal material. They both know that, but she is ready to address the press on her own and tell them about her injury and her coaching and the fact that she was no longer the volleyball goddess. The difficult decisions she has had to make were to go out on her own without a manager and to not be a pampered doll star but to work with them. She could have left after the fight and done CFs, but instead she decided that she was going to coach them and build a different life than the one she had dreamed of her entire life.
Redirecting your life is not something small, but on a scale of 1-10 I'd give her tragedy about a 3.
I guess he forgot a little thing called 'being unusually tall.' I'd be more worked up about the stupidity but I'm busy imagining manes of glory and what people wear under all those robes. Or don't. It gets pretty hot in Korea, after all.
So, I'm quite worried about Tree. Not Rim, I mean, he already got to feel Se Ra up, kinda, and stare at her lips. He is not innocent. But poor Tree? Nothing but pining and angst.
Are you suggesting she give him a free grope to even things out?
I love how Kakashi made a Rim/Puppy sandwich out of this post. First slice of bread (lead) Rim, sandwich fixins, 2nd slice (lead) Climbing Tree Puppy. Has this been going on all the time, and I just noticed?
