Remember: Son’s War Ep 1 Review (and that was brilliant)

Alternately chilling and wrathful, Remember looks like it’s going to be one hell of a ride. It reminded me a bit of a mashup of Pride and Prejudice, I Hear Your Voice (the K-drama) and I Remember You, which is fan-freaking-tastic because those the latter two are among my favourite dramas of all time. All our leads are introduced in this episode, which is pretty surprising as most shows usually take a few episodes to introduce everyone, which means that this show’s either going to be very tight ot will succumb to an inevitable drag later. But we’ve a brilliant host of characters so far and I am so pumped to see where this is going to go.  Continue reading

Oh My Venus Ep 8 Recap (and can I hug him too?)

We flashback to about 30 minutes earlier when Youngho sets off for a meeting with his new legal representative on his own. Too bad Chief Min already predicted Youngho would do so and has his fleet of cars assembled in fornt of Youngho’s garage. Youngho peevishly agrees to let Chief Min chauffeur him but insists that they take his car. These two are so cut honestly. During the drive Min reassures him that they’re only taking preventative legal measures in case word gets out. Youngho nods but is too busy rereading Jooeun’s texts from the previous night where she thanks him for all he’s done. He then sends her the messages we saw yesterday and she replies as she did then. He texts her once more to say that there’s something he has to tell her and to call her right after she’s done at work. This is the text Jooeun misses. Things play out as they did last episode with Jooeun hyperventilating and leaving, and Youngho following. She thinks back to all he said, about being as secretive as Batman, about having been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and about how sharing a suite room with him was like traveling to outer space. Youngho tells her to calm down and tries to check her pulse but she shoves his hand away, saying that he really was out of her league. Soojin’s followed and tries to see what’s happening when Chief Min politely leads her away. I like him even more now.  Continue reading

Oh My Venus Ep 6 Recap (and swoony glances galore!)

Jooeun grumbles about the length of Youngho’s absence saying that he should just go and live with Anna Sue. She argues that she has pretty features too. We see some belly fat as she works out, proving she’s only lost face fat and that she’s still going to have some training to do. The rest of the scene plays out as we saw it yesterday. Youngho’s just delighted by her dimples.

Oh My Venus Ep 5 Recap (and innuendo-filled jujitsu lessons)

Mr. Poinsettia leans in creepily, mentioning that he even brought the plant she liked so much. He indicates the plant on her table and Jooeun remembers asking Hyunwoo whether she’d put it. She pleads for her life, but Youngho dashes in just as Poinsettia’s about to get physical. He roughs up the weakling in 5 seconds flat and looks at a trembling Jooeun, asking if she’s alright and telling her to call the police. [This man, people. THIS MAN]

He leads her to his car and they drive to the police station. Wooshik watches them leave from a distance, having seen the whole thing. Continue reading
