(This drama is shaping up to be a bit Healer-like isn’t it? That first scene of In Ah finding Jinwoo going incognito threw me straight back to Jung Hoo and Young Shin) [Screencap error fixed, I will never understand photobucket]
In Ah exits the hidden chamber just as Dongho enters the office. He’s mildly amused at findind her here of all places and asks her where Jinwoo is. He’s aware that she cares for Jinwoo and sympathetic to his plight but warns her being here doesn’t looking good, with her being a prosecutor. In Ah disagrees with his assessment, she’s here precisely because she’s a prosectuor, to find those who framed Jinwoo. Dongho has an interest in Jinwoo being found as well seeing as he hasn’t forgotten about his contract. In Ah’s voice turns to steel as she warns Dongho that she isn’t falling for that again.

I’m enjoying Cheese in the Trap but two things have forced me to cut off recapping earlier than expected: a change in class hours, and Yoo Seungho. I’ll be recapping Remember: Son’s War from now on, in addition to one of the following two dramas: One More Happy Ending and Madame Antoine. Two’s the limit this semester (I wish I could do more!) I’m super sorry for the switch but I will be getting the recaps out as fast as ever (9-11pm EST)and I hope that I’ll see many readers over there! Spread the Yoo Seungho & Park Minyoung love!
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 “Remember: Son’s War Ep 1 Review (and that was brilliant)”

This way I figure, it wouldn’t get buried and I’d be able to locate it and update it faster for everyone! 🙂
Healer, Healer, Healer. I am so in love with you, it isn’t even right. Firstly, you don’t exist. Secondly, even if you did, I’m a boring second year university student, not some adorable sassy reporter with brains and brawn. Thirdly, I can’t invite you to sleep over at my place either (though you technically did invite yourself to YS’s place in Ep 4). Let’s not go into the fourthlies and fifthlies. Suffice it to say that the things I want to do to Seo Jung Hoo are likely illegal in all 51 states of America and all 10 provices of Canada. And this is coming from someone who unfortunately still owns her W (minus one V) card. I just sort of adore the man. I’ve been following the show faithfully. Every Monday and Tuesday, sees me glued to the screen, taking two-three hours to watch an hour-long episode, rewinding, sighing, drooling, shrieking with laughter like a madwoman, fuming with rage that I’m still single, you get the drift. ESPECIALLY EPISODE 15. Can we please talk about that? Like, every single bit? Like that kiss? Actually no, about what followed. I’ve never been so invested in the lives of two characters. OMG, I squealed so hard at the sight of that bed, I’m pretty sure my entire floor thinks I’m certified. Yup, just ship me to the loony bin. Just let me bring the laptop. Oh and you’d better have Wi-fi. But Healer…the his and hers cups…but ugh. I’m honestly hyperventilating as I type this. Hello repressed teen. That look in his eyes though, so very smitten and happy and damn toe-curling. Let’s not even get started with that business with the arm. And the fun times under that blanket.
Dear heaven, I need a life.
If you were expecting my usual detailed analysis on characters, events and their motivations, here’s to disappointment! Because my brain has long ceased rational function, and coherence went out of the window the moment I saw him cuddling her. I am dead, you hear me? This is my ghost presently typing these words, cackling like a madwoman (mentally, my family won’t take any more of the real stuff). I love these two. I love them together. They’re pure gold as a couple and feed off each other in the best of ways. I loved it when he tried to dry her hair and got…distracted. Jung Hoo, you’re obsessed. Who the hell knew he was so damn touchy feely, and cuddly. Big, bad Jung Hoo makes the world’s most adorable teddy bear. I want one. Okay? Hear that fate? What do I do to get me one of these? If it involves being the long-lost daughter of a woman whose husband was killed by her present husband, and means that I need to get my stuff stolen and dumped into a public bathroom sink by said sexy Healer, then I’m game. Not that I would lose my present family for the world…of course….not. Continue reading “The very cuddly Healer (and EPISODE 15)”
Whew, we certainly get a great deal of development in this episode, particularly involving KMH and KMS. I’ll go by character this time to keep this review uncluttered.
Kim Moon Ho has to be the most enigmatic of our three leads. It’s as if there’s a curtain in front of him, preventing us from seeing his character fully. We only catch bits and pieces now and then, and even those aren’t much to go on. Though he brings on the cuteness and cajoles Director Kang Min Jae every now and then, the smile rarely reaches his eyes, which have a layer of steel in them that’s strongly reminiscent of his brother. It helps that an established actor like Yoo Ji Tae is playing this role seeing how good he is at playing peekaboo with his character’s emotions. This episode, peels back another layer surrounding him, yet we still don’t have the full picture. Moon Ho is surprisingly manipulative. I honestly pinned the way he could slide into and out of situation, while remaining so fully in command, on his intelligence, yet there’s more to it than that. The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree and Moon Ho’s just as good at playing the game as his brother is. That strange smile and steel in KMH’s eyes when asking YS how far she wished to go with the story, and why she wasn’t washing her hands of it, was the equivalent of a poking a sleeping animal, waiting for a reaction. We all knew what he was trying to do, verify how earnest she was about the case. And he was definitely pleased and proud of the answer he got, but it’s hard not to raise your eyebrows a little at the method.

Oh Healer, I love you. It may seem a bit rushed that he’s so affected by CYS, but looking at things from his point of view, it’s actually rather believable. He’s someone who’s seen nothing but the nasty side of the world and to find someone as genuine as her, regardless of whether or no she may be bait, is no doubt a brand new experience. The Clark Kent/Superman comparison is quite apt with these two, seeing how he swoops in like her own personal superhero, even when he should rightfully be running for his life. From holding her gently to asking her how many pills she needs, ugh can thing man get any more perfect? Not that he wasn’t mindful of his own safety, seeing how he prevented her from seeing his face. Though, I really think he should’ve been more careful during the fight. Things are getting dangerous for Healer as Hacker Ahjumma notes. Not only is SS Guard now aware that Healer appears to have a special interest in CYS’s welfare, but they’ve an easy access route to him.
And here he is worrying about Yeong Shin’s safety instead. Honey, you sound a bit naïve, of course they’ll kill her. Not every night-courier has as many clear-cut rules as you do, as seeing what little rules you have, that’s saying something. Though it’s not like he’s solely motivated by his budding feelings. Boy hasn’t thrown out his brain, even if he’s gaining a heart. He needs to find out who set him up and just what connection Jae-Il Newspaper and CYS have to his parents. I do like that our characters don’t suddenly lose parts of themselves, or do a full 180 due to a love interest. Their intentions won’t be completely altruistic, there will always be some self-interest there. But that’s a good thing, it makes them much more relatable, and much, much more human and the sacrificial lambs we currently have running around Pinocchio. She draws him for some reason, and he’s curious and even a little fascinated by her. He’s never known what it’s like to jump into a fight you can’t win, and to see her go there so bravely is something he can’t help but respect, something that touches him deeply. Just like that leopard. Continue reading “Healer Ep 5 Review (and whaddaya mean “replace the Healer?”)”
Did I say this was going to be a good ride? Scratch that. This is going to be bombastically awesome(*firmly restrains urge to add tens of thousands of screencaps).
Healer is definitely an interesting fella. Talk about self-imposed isolation. To only have THREE contacts on your phone (one of whom technically doesn’t count as a contact) is utterly bizarre. He’s not one of those I-have-no-emotions-until-a-pretty-girl-awakens-them sort of male lead, but he’s definitely all for the job. No ethics, no interest in justice, he just wants to get his pay and get out of the world as soon as possible. Something had to have happened to foster this incredible lack of caring in him, (I mean this is dramaland, he can’t have been born that way à la Doctor Frost, it wouldn’t fit this writer’s mold) and I look forward to seeing just what that traumatic event was. He is quite ruthlessly efficient though, and I mean RUTHLESS. Like seriously, poor Chae Yeong Shim, it’s bad enough knowing that you’re being followed, but getting your stuff stolen and subsequently attacked in the bathroom by a weirdo who wants your nail clippings? That’s the stuff of Kdrama villainy, not heroism. But Healer doesn’t appear to be your average hero either. Why on earth is he called Healer to behind with? I was expecting a vigilante who fought for justice and sought to heal the world (forgive the bad pun) but umm…yeah…not too sure of this fella’s motivations (or lack thereof), though Ji Chang Wook is a babe.
Kim Moon Ho remains an enigma (and a major cutie).
When Director Kang started saying that he was addicted to fame, I honestly started out of my seat. I mean, what? You can’t just have this pretty babe turn out to be fame-hungry!
