Sometimes a drama fan just needs to watch a drama with off-the-wall comedic moments and over-the-top makjang intensity. The Last Empress is just such a drama. Come join The Fangirls as we cover our expectations going into The Last Empress, our favorite characters, where we think the story is headed, and so much more!Continue reading
Does anyone else feel like the story flipped? Join me as I feel like we’ve started a brand new story because my conspiracy theories have been crushed and new ones have formed. Who is the villain and who is the victim? I don’t really know anymore.
Up to now we have been mostly involved with getting to know our robot, Shin III. Now it’s time to see human Shin’s side of the story. For a character who hasn’t done much but sleep for half of the drama, he’s really taking over. Is he going to turn everyone’s plans upside down? (Do you see those neck veins?) There will be SPOILERS for these two episodes.
Our happy couple continues to be in love and adorable, and the finale is filled with last minute wedding details and not much else. It’s not exactly riveting plot exposition, but let’s be honest. We were watching for the cute anyway. Right?
How will Young Joon pop the question? Again? The poor love struck fool is running out of new ideas as he gears up for his fifth and final proposal. Good thing for us he’s got more than one person ready to provide their hilarious input.
Remember when Mi So’s favorite book said that love doesn’t have to be grandiose, just someone to wrap us in a warm hug at the end of a hard day? I feel like that’s exactly what this show does. In a world of traffic and heat waves and weight gain, there is a guaranteed bright spot on Wednesdays and Thursdays full of heartwarming confessions, goofy side characters, and toe curling kisses. This show loves us.
I picture a What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim fan driving to work in the morning and passing a construction site. She spots a bright yellow appliance with the giant bucket on the front and lapses into a dreamy reverie as the friend that carpools with her wonders why she’s smiling at a bulldozer. The passenger may silently consider if the driver has gone insane, but don’t worry. Drama fans understand.
It’s a painful episode for our hero in more ways than one. His valiant effort to protect everyone else finally wears him down and he’s at the breaking point. It’s a good thing he has such a smart, beautiful woman to keep him company on the difficult journey. Continue reading
Remember near the beginning of the show when Secretary Kim said her ideal man had three qualities: someone who cares for her, someone who cares for her, and someone who cares for her? I think she found him.
See what I get for assuming what the drama schedule will be and how I could match up irregular episodes? I thought we’d have one this week and we get two! And they are good ones. We finally find out about the motivations of Chairman Nam and Secretary Ji, someone new finds out about the robot, and the robot himself gets a paradigm shift. Note that there will be SPOILERS for these three episodes.
