Shopping King Louie Episode 11: Did you laugh or cry?

a1

DOUBLE AMNESIA!?!?!   Pwahahaha. No need to cry. After two episodes of our puppy lovers separated and miserable, I was ready for a reset anyway. Shopping King Louie spread the romance thin this week. But the last 30 seconds are the light at the end of the tunnel.

Every move you make, I’ll be watching you

If it was someone less adorable than Louie, it would be restraining order time. In the real world, a guy sneaking in to your apartment and hiring people to keep an eye on you is creepy. But it’s Dramaland, so let’s all say it together. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Don’t we all wish someone would sneak into our place, clean up the mess, and feed the piggy bank while we’re at work? Our heroine insists on space and zero contact, so Louie loves her from a distance. There’s no wrist grabbing or forced kisses to try and make her stay. He respects her decision, painful as it is. So let’s all say it again. Awwwwwwwwwwwww.

It’s a little thing. But I live in the humid sweatlands of Texas, where Autumn is just another way of saying 86 degree weather. Thank you, Mr. Director for all the shots of Korea’s changing leaves surrounding the color-coordinated hero. So, so pretty. The leaves AND Seo In Guk.

Speaking of pretty, did our highly-toned, helpful policeman have this big a role in the original script? It would be hilarious if he was first written as a normal, unimpressive side character. Then the writer saw who got the job and VOILA! He’s moving furniture and redecorating bookstores in designer fitted shirts. Think about it. What was the point of that scene? I’d rather have more main couple interactions, but we’re at the angsty part of the story. So at least we have something nice to look at while we wait.

Bok Nam is coming back soon, right? And why did the writer wait until episode 11 to introduce the 4D awesomeness that is Bok Sil’s little brother? If you thought Louie was hapless and pathetic, he now has an apprentice. The return of Low-Speed-Louie chasing an equally wimpy Bok Nam in and out of the bushes was the highlight of this week’s story for me. The boy that can’t even leap over a bush without doing a faceplant seems too scatterbrained to intentionally rob someone. What really happened to these two that left Louie on the side of the road minus car, watch, and pants? Hopefully, they tell us sooner, rather than later.

How many times can a hero get smacked on the head in one drama? Poor Louie’s skull must look like a spiderweb by now. Bok Nam isn’t the only plot hole that still needs filling. How far did Evil Uncle go to steal the company? What events led up to our hero’s first bout of memory loss? And, the most important question, when are we going to get more kisses?

My thoughts:

Confession time. I know it’s ridiculous, but I actually like the idea of another spin on the Amnesia Carousel. The first ride was so entertaining, why wouldn’t I want another ticket? Plus, I really didn’t want Bok Sil and Louie back together because she discovers he didn’t cause her brother’s death. She needs to love him whether Bok Nam is alive or not. (Speaking of which, why is Louie back in the knock-off tracksuit? Did Bok Nam steal his clothes . . . again?) I’m not 100% sure they will go full-out amnesia. But there is a huge bright side, if they do. We get to watch Louie fall for Bok Sil for the third time in a row. Goodbye noble sacrifices. Hello Hobo Louie! I missed you.

Until next time, keep the K-love alive!

  1. Whack a Louie – Snort. I can’t wait to see where they are taking this knock on his poor addled head. I just want more of Bok Sil and Louie kissing and laughing. Also that scene of Louie chasing her brother around made me laugh so hard. What a team.

  2. Yup, I don’t mind the double amnesia either! And I’m also in TX! Maybe when it’s 90 degrees we stop caring about silly drama tropes.

    I hope there are many more scenes to come with Louis and Boknam together. Do two 4D characters make 8D, or do they cancel each other out?

  3. I love how Louie walks with his handsout and fingers fluttering like he will lose his balance at any moment…Poor Gukkie was no match to Bok Nam’s spritely frog hops and tree climbing during that chase scene! : )

    Okay, I gotta mention Mr. Cha’s assorted outfits… flowered country pants, leopard spot underwear, and all the girly, tie at neck, blouse-like Little Lord Fauntleroy shirts had me cracking up!

  4. “Please…Louie is already vindicated as an amnesiac beggar…so not again!…And Bok Nam is alive with Louie on the side slick!…Yaay i’m just presuming that this is only an imagination of Bok Sil when she saw a beggar, bec. she missed Louieyaah…haha, Of course this is until we get to watch the remaining episodes…(pls. be good to us.)

  5. I never laughed so much and enjoyed the “angsty” part like I did in this drama. Those parts are traumatic for me. It was necessary to have that part (I think) but they breezed through it and still make us laugh. I am satisfied.
