Thumping Spike - Episode 16 (A Squeecap)
Kakashi: I think this episode should be called "Sweaty Boys in Shorts". The one making these titles really has no clue!
JoAnne: If we name it 'No Sweaty Boy Shorts' will someone remove them?
If only I had whisky.
I think I do, come over.
She really is a completely useless character. What do we call a second lead who is not at all a second lead?
The producer's daughter, but not his favorite one.
He pushes the coach down the stairs, laughs maniacally, and shouts, "I never leave my work undone!" No? That didn't happen?
This confused me. So they just looked at the venue they would play at and then went to eat? I think this show has an enemy in the editing department.
The guy who puts together the flashback montages is better liked than the guy who does the regular editing, so he always wins the time wars.
But it's clearly later since the scene where we want JW to push the coach down the stairs is during the day and this scene is at night.
Immediately after this, Se Ra realizes the possibilities standing right in front of her. 'You two! Meet me in that conveniently empty and comfortably appointed room over there! now! And no sweaty boy shorts allowed!' The rest of the scene is a mystery because the film melted.
She offers him private, one-on-one stretching and recovery exercises. He tries to turn her down since he's broke, of course - it's only when she looks insulted and slaps him that he realizes his error. 'Fine,' she says. 'I'll invite rich-boy Jae Woong, too. Will that make you feel better?' I know it will make me feel better...
Woo Jin's thinking about ways he can hurt Jae Woong. I hope he reconsiders, because we have those stretching and recovery sessions to look forward to.
You very rarely see men in shorts that hit mid-thigh, these days. A moment of appreciation.
Hey, this wasn't even PPL! No close-ups.
The actress brought them in herself to get more screen time.
I don't understand his function either. Is he the coach or is she the coach?
He's the coach, but the writer knew we'd never create alternate sexy scenes for him so they added her. Sexual tension between that man and two of his players...that's a different story. One that does nothing for me. Sorry to those of you who would like it. Maybe next time.
I like the actual sports shots too! Good thumping spikes, wam! Nice legs!
Does someone wham a spike into either Soo Bin or CrutchCoach's face? No? Not interested.
Hm. What will happen if they win the Presiden't Cup? She will scream herself to oblivion.
I thought he'd force-kiss her.
He grabs her wrist (and I was saying “oh no”) and takes her over to the other team, stopping obnoxious boy (OB) from the previous night’s spat at restaurant on his way out. OB is a tampon, also where you are? Yes, also where we are. He introduces Se Ra to him as Coach Kang and asks if he still thinks she is washed up now. OB mumbles an apology, but Jae Woong says he can’t hear what he’s saying. His name for OB is Last Place. Everyone is watching now. He says to OB that he has now become last place, so why can’t he give her a proper apology. He sighs, and asks for his coach (who we see mumbling in background). This gets OB to quickly spurt out an apology, but Jae Woong isn’t done. “Is there something wrong with your neck?” he asks. Now OB does a proper apology, including a bow. Everyone on our team is pleased. Secretary Kim even laughs. No not everyone is pleased. Soo Bin isn’t happy and neither is Woo Jin.
That was over the top, yup.
It's not good sportsmanship to humiliate your opponent and we were all taught not to sink to someone's level if they were misbehaving, besides. I get Rim's fierce desire to avenge her, but still tis is bad form
Yes, rituals are good.
Trot just became even cooler to me. Ice hockey is one thing. City league ice hockey, though. So impressed with your tiny fierce self. So impressed.
[I lead my team in penalty minutes the year we won the city championship, but I still had an excellent plus/minus rating (http://proicehockey.about.com/od/scoresandstat1/f/plus_minus.htm). I share this tidbit with my student athletes when they try to intimidate me; they always back off]
Yes, I can: Sera is an IDIOT.
But you cannot deny that Rim can be swoon-worthy. I mean, there is NO OTHER REASON to love his dumb-ass self as much as we all do, other than that we know the swoon is lurking nearby at all times
I wanted to snark about how lame it is for an adult to be sad when once dad isn't there but then I remembered that these aren't adults yet. Not so lame then.
And it's an important game, and I don't think his dad ever goes. He completely doesn't support his son in this.
Before we get to the rest of the scene, let us pause to notice that our Climbing Tree Puppy is wearing a sweatshirt that says “Grown Man” on it. Thank You, Puppy. Thank you for allowing us to not feel like we are going to be arrested. We all agree that really, you are a grown man.
It's getting confusing now, cause I thought they were not yet fully grown.
Grown enough. It's like drinking and voting and going to war. In this case, he's grown enough for us to feel okay about wanting to feel his biceps or run our fingers across the back of his neck or okay YES DAMMIT lick his abs
I'm going to yawn a bit here, over in my corner. Don't mind me. But the actor playing whats-his-name is good, I wouldn't mind seeing him in something else.
OMG OMG OMG is Han Sol SUNBAE from Age of Youth? I KNEW he looked familiar. (It's been so long since I watched this...) Update: I checked. It IS him. Oh man...Sunbae is 17 different kinds of adorable
Sis-zoned. And goodbye, whats-your-name.
It would be more touching, but I'm laughing at her hair.
I just want to smack her.
Smack her hard so she falls off the balcony and Jae Woong catches her and she finally realizes she's being an dumb-ass.
I told you to hit her HARD. No one ever listens to me.
It's just not right that Tree has to go through such hardship. Stupid show. Stupid Sera.
I agree with you both. But in this sageuk, could he maybe have a brief, passionate affair with one of the older court ladies? I'd like to know what he sounds like when he says 'Noona' in a particular tone of voice. For research.
This is the first episode in which I like Rim and his acting. So... yay.
He's had his moments, but it's clear to me that as an actor, our beloved Rimmie spends serious time just phoning things in.
