This week I’m writing both recaps. I tried to be short and sweet, but the truth is I’m a talker and that spills over into my recaps. I’d rather do my usual speculating and pondering than trying to summarize. Y’all love that about me, right? Join me as I discuss hottie biker priests, promising prosecutors, and an epic act of revenge.
WARNING: Turn off your brain. Immediately. Trying to make sense of the characters’ logic or choices will only frustrate you.
Even the opening credits warn the viewer of this drama’s kooky nature from the start. The haunting music, severed doll heads, and blood red tissue paper floating from the sky hardly fit a romantic comedy.
I watched Shin Hye Sun in a couple of shows this last year that took me off on a tangent with the Korean language. Have you ever noticed the subtitles not matching the names the characters are saying? Come and see what I noticed about how Koreans address each other, and then, if you have more information, please comment! (We have tried hard to find the correct word usage and romanization of the Korean words. Meaning, we scoured the internet and picked the brains of our members who are learning Korean. That said, we know we may have a few mistakes here, so let us know if you see something so we can use the correct term. -Clkytta)
Ah, what a way to start off the New Year! Hot-Blooded Priest has an all-star cast with Kim Nam Gil, Kim Sung Kyun, and Lee Honey. I am going to guess we will have a good mix of humor and intrigue in this one. I love a good murder mystery, so I’m excited about this drama. Look for future recap posts for Hot-Blooded Priest, I know I’m on board for recapping this drama!
Ok, it’s the last episode. Yay for me being right and they weren’t siblings! But…now what? Moo Young killed Creepy Sister CEO and I’m not getting Happily Ever After vibes here. Join me as we wrap up the final episode of The Smile Has Left Your Eyes.
Oh, I have been waiting for Park Bo Gum to grace my screen again, and the teasers for Encounter do not disappoint. We usually reserve the term “mane of glory” for the sageuk and historical locks, but Park Bo Gum just owns this look. It is not hard to imagine someone being tempted, perhaps longing, for an “encounter.”
So Ji Sub is the main attraction in Terius Behind Me, and of COURSE The Fangirls had to weigh in on his first drama since 2015’s Oh My Venus. Come see if we think that So Ji Sub has chosen wisely, or if this is a hard pass in a new crop of good-looking dramas.
