While You Were Sleeping Episodes 21 & 22

As I watch a drama, there is always the rise and ebb of the plot’s pacing. Sometimes it’s all action and you are literally bursting with adrenaline while watching. Other episodes are plot development episodes where it fleshes out characters and creates the setup for future plot points. And then you have my least favorite part of a drama….the plateau. That spot where we seem to be going nowhere and just re-watching the same type of conflict happen over and over. I think that is where we currently are with While You Were Sleeping. Continue reading

While You Were Sleeping Episode 17 & 18

Last week I finished watching the four episodes and was left feeling………..just ok.  Sure, there was plot and stuff happened.  But for some reason I just wasn’t emotionally engaged.  I wondered if maybe we were in for a lull.  A pause in plot until we get to the meaty stuff at the end.  Let me just tell you, “That is NOT the case.”  There was so much awesome plot and intrigue stuffed into these two episodes that I am overflowing with thoughts.  Continue reading

While You Were Sleeping: Episodes 13 & 14

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.

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?

While You Were Sleeping: Episodes 9 & 10

We shift gears this week as we put the romance on the backburner and look at more important things. Like the fact that Hong Joo had a job. Huh? I don’t know why that surprises me. For some reason, I felt that waitress kind of fit the character but nope…. our leading lady is a star reporter who has taken a two-year hiatus from her job. Does this new plot twist work? Come join me as I discuss this as well as all my other favorite moments of episodes 9 & 10. Continue reading
