Alright y’all, we are getting back into the swing of things! Starting off with Hotel de Luna which is just the right amount of comedy to horror that my faint heart can take. So far, I love it! I am intrigued by the back stories and want to see this relationship blossom. Episode 2 is coming up sometime tonight and we will try and finishup 3 and 4 tomorrow. We aren’t sure if we will be live, but we are sure that we will be all caught up. Without further ado, let’s get right into it!
All. Caught.Up! So happy to be caught up with this drama which allows me to relax a bit and enjoy a few of the other dramas we have our eyes on. I am a bit obsessed with Arthdal Chronicles crazy self and need to watch today’s episode like I need to breath. In addition to that, has anyone watched Search: WWW yet? I really want to watch it mostly for its romantic comedy vibes.
Ugh, this show keeps pulling me in to its melodic slow wander through Jungin and Jiho’s lives! I must watch. In fact, even though we have no time to spare, I just wanted to keep watching the next episode after we finished Wednesdays episode. But I also needed to post this and we have things to do today to get ready for. But I was all ready to postpone all that and just get my next hit already. I can’t wait until we watch episodes 11/12 because it looks all kinds of constipated with feelings that want to explode all over the upholstery creating a mess no Dyson can clean up.
We are currently traveling while trying to watch dramas in our free time and hunting for a good internet signal to recap! June is definitely interesting to say the least. But there are so many good shows coming out this month that we had to try. Well, we were finally able to catch up on One Spring Night up to last week. We still need to watch this weeks worth of episodes, but we are all happy at the last two weeks worth. The great news is that this show is slow going, so it is very easy to give a summary of what has happened, I’ll stick to the main couple.
We have watched the first two hours of One Spring Night which only brought me joy and had me sucked into the screen because this show is capturing the mood and tone of Something in the Rain in a lovely way. It has the same slow melodic walk through the lives of Yoo Ji-ho and Lee Jung-in as well as the long screen takes, to incorporate us into their lives. So far, everything we see is through the eyes of either Ji-ho or Jung-in. The only other step into a characters life we get is from Jung-in’s father, Seung-han, and sister, Lee So-in. And goodness, her sisters life looks fabulous from the outside, but Lordy Lordy does she need Ayana to come fix her life.
We had a lot of new drama make an appearance in the last episode (that was resolved very quickly) and new drama to enter this episode that is typical for kdramas, ala the “I have to go out of town for an extended period of time which means we won’t eeevah be able to see each other again until I return” missing you trope. I am ready for it!
The deed was done though a bit of a cut away meh after all those glorious kisses they gave us. But at least our couple went to the next stage of courtship and is ready to face the world! Unfortunately, they are about to get their first taste of family drama on the other end as Ryan finds out that Deokmi’s mom is the one that dropped him off at the orphanage and give him that life long hand holding stigma. But you know, no biggie.
Good lawd, he’s painting her. You know a biblical relationship is not far behind. Though I can see how he needs to get some life-family-mama-orphan stress out on the canvas, and what better model than his lady love! Just looking at this photo makes me want to watch a drama with a painter and his/her lover. Drama lords, are you listening?
It feels like ten years have passed since the last episode of Her Private Life, that is how long this week has been! I am so happy to dive right in and absorb all the splendor of first love without all that angsty stuff from the last episode. Though, of course, we will have some backstory that will reach into the present to affect Ryan. Hopefully our couple will address that strongly together. And of course, our little adorable Shian will be there as well (and possibly a big part of it!).
So, who thinks Ryan ran off as soon as he realized Deokmi would be alone in that woodshop? Because that is exactly what I think. Though getting confirmation (through Latte) that Deokmi actually did like him probably only added to his resolve. However, I don’t think he got that message way back at Dain’s place. He was probably already at the woodshop and got the ShianIsMyWay beep just outside. Otherwise, how in the world could he get there SO FAST. I think we’ll find out at the beginning of this episode.
This show is quirky and is hitting all my romantic-comedy spots, I especially love when Ryan and Deokmi hang out at the online fan site. Ryan (aka Latte) looks so absurd that I just have to giggle. Though I do feel like the paaain might be about to start. Hopefully, it does not last long.
Loved yesterdays episode! I was squeeing like a school girl with an Idol crush the entire time. Which, I am happy to say, makes me fit right into this drama world. The great thing about this drama is that it is so delightfully adult. There are no man children here (well maybe except the Idol, but, you know) and there are no candies doing annoying things. Everything Deok-mi has done is definitely in the wheel house of something I would do, if I was in her situation. That really helps me be in her shoes and lost in her drama moments.
Y’all, recently, I feel like my favorite TV shows are not giving me the emotional payoff I deserve. They are building to these huge thematic moments, but then the climax is actually anti-climactic, which keeps me from releasing all that built up emotional energy and expectation that was waiting for a RELEASE, so I feel kind of — bloated in a way, constipated even? Because I still have all these feelings to get out, that are stuck, and yet I’m still being fed all these other emotions from this anti-climax, so I just want to take a minute to try and figure things out when really I should get the drama equivalent of a laxative or something and move on. *sigh*
The story of Sungmo is the story of this show. I love how we were introduced to him as almost a background character in the first few episodes yet now his background has basically taken over this drama. I completely forgot about Jaein’s struggle with proving her father’s innocence and Lee Ahn’s struggle with his ability, because I was just so pulled into Sungmo’s story. And boy did that reveal deliver.
