All righty, drama fans, Master’s Sun was a good call! And absolutely perfect for the Halloween season. I binged and lost sleep over this drama! That doesn’t happen very often, so this is the mark of a good series, in my opinion. Well done. You guys can totally be trusted to choose some excellent tv-watching for me.
I was hoping to laugh as much as I did in the last episodes, but we have to have a little seriousness to balance all the levity. And so, we shall talk about what happened this time around in While You Were Sleeping.
Well, this episode picks up right where we left off, but in greater clarity: Hak Young threatens to reveal Woo Tak’s secret if Woo Tak doesn’t help him prove his innocence, and Woo Tak pulls out a prepared letter of resignation and says “Ok. Let’s do this then.”
Seriously, could this boy get any cooler?
Hey you guys! Our dear Kmuse isn’t feeling well, so I, the intrepid Maknae, have taken over this week’s While You Were Sleeping recaps. Mwahahahaha!
ALSO, I noticed something in my last post. You know that picture of Jae Chan threatening his brother with “Wolverine” and I said something about sibling torture? That whole story arc is a contrast in sibling relationships! There’s the fun-loving, caring one between Jae Chan and Seung Won, and the deadly one between Kang Dae Hee and his brother. Can we just say excellent writing? Because, seriously, that is some excellent writing. I applaud the writer.
SPOILER ALERT, but not exactly for this series. Remember when the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie came out and a lot of people weren’t satisfied with the ending? I did a mad amount of Googling and finally found an interview where the writers explained something significant at the end of the movie and BAM. I was happy with it.
I love kpop in all its colorful, technological glory. The intense beats, the pretty idols, the video concepts — they speak to my fangirl heart.
On the other hand, I was a teenager in the 1990s, which means that sometimes I long for a good guitar solo or something a little less manufactured. So when I found some Korean rock bands, I was so, SO happy!
Wolverine! Sibling torture is THE BEST.
Ok, so I ended up getting frustrated with the slow subbing pace and missing subtitles at Viki and ended up subscribing to Kocowa for the month. So thanks for being patient with me and my delayed recap, drama fans. If you find yourself frustrated also, it’s $7/month for Kocowa and you don’t have to be locked into a contract. Just FYI.
But boy oh BOY, While You Were Sleeping is worth the frustration and extra streaming service!! Let’s jump into this episode, shall we?
To conclude our kpop segment, we’d like to share with you the stories of how we got into kpop. So sit back and nod along as you recognize a “falling down the rabbit hole” story that might be very similar to your own! Continue reading
Karie the Maknae: So Kdrama Jen said I should watch a thing. I trusted her and watched the thing. And now we will banter about it while she makes my head spin with all the Korean names.
Kdrama Jen: Hey, I am simply trying to educate our Maknae. It’s not my fault they happened to cast both Kim So Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun in the same drama. But, seriously. What did you think? Moon Embracing the Sun is an absolute must-watch because you get to see so many of the current big name stars when they were just young foals galloping around dramaland.
Have you ever seen a thousand layer cake? There’s a few versions around the world, in Europe and Indonesia most notably. Sometimes made of crepes, sometimes made of a simple egg/milk/flour plain cake, the appeal of the thousand layer cake is how it comes together — a rich combination of filling and baked good, drizzled in something fabulous.
