Well, drama fans, we ran into a snag. The Fangirls went into Live with high expectations, but those expectations weren’t met and some of our recappers weren’t able to finish the drama. I, your resourceful Maknae, will do my best to sum up what happened between episode 8 and the end so that you can judge if you want to continue. There will be spoilers, and there will definitely be commentary on the writing, the acting, and the overall feel of the drama.
I’ll try to be accurate in these summaries, but I can’t promise it. I started hitting play over and over again just to be DONE with this drama and I don’t have the patience to go through the episodes again to make sure I’ve got it right. This should tell you a lot about how I felt about this drama by the end. I’ll do my best to hit the highlights.
There are some interesting revelations in this episode and some questions to ponder. What is loyalty? Does it show loyalty to volunteer to take the blame? Is it about being there for your partner in times of crisis? Is loyalty yielding the field to a love rival who is also your friend? All this and more is explored in Episode 8.
In today’s episode everyone is having a bad day, but by the end of it, we have some pretty great bonding moments. We learn that when you’re a cop, the most important thing should be your partner. And for Lt. Oh, that seems to be a lesson that is way overdue. Continue reading
Gah! There are so many amazing dramas and we all have so little time to watch them. Luckily for you, there are enough of us Fangirls that we can provide a variety of airing shows tiny as well as a glimpse of our feelings about said show. So join us for the latest Drama Banchan and find out what we are watching.
I’m finding that Live is my new cracktastic drama. The characters are becoming compelling and growing, and while the plot isn’t novel and actually ends up being a bit predictable at times, it still resonates enough that I’m drawn in and want to keep watching. Continue reading
Things begin to get tense for our rookies and their mentors as family and work stressors continue to increase. Join me, Kmuse, as I discuss how being a police officer is a job that you can’t leave, even when your shift ends. Continue reading
The others have introduced themselves, so I guess it is my turn. In case you are new to the blog or never took the time to peruse my bio, here is a little about me. I am Kdrama Jen. I have been watching Kdramas since 2006. (Yes, it was back before streaming sites were as ubiquitous and we had to scour the big bad internets for our favorite shows.) I love dramas with really great acting and tightly written scripts, and I enjoy blogging about my first impressions and the random thoughts that come to me as I watch. I especially love it when I can connect from one drama to the next–either concepts, actors, or themes. I have a day job that forces me to use my brain, so I freely admit that I sometimes watch dramas that are NOT tightly written or do NOT have stellar acting. I have a soft spot for idol dramas, and sometimes those are just fluffy, but I love them anyway. Don’t judge me. Continue reading
Welcome to DWASOK Live recaps, I’m Drama Geek and I will be co-recapping with Kmuse, Karie the Maknae & Kdrama Jen.
Howdy, drama fans! Karie the Maknae here, happy to join Kmuse, Drama Geek, and Kdrama Jen as we recap the new police kdrama Live. I have a hard time scaling down my recaps to the parts that stood out to me, especially in a drama like this, where every detail seems to have meaning. So buckle up, drama fans, because here come the Maknae’s thoughts on Live, episode 2! Continue reading
The Asian police drama trauma of Kmuse. I am telling you that this is a real thing. So often I will go into a show and be driven batty by stupid/unrealistic cops who do stupid/unrealistic things. So when we were discussing what drama to recap next I was slightly hesitant about picking a show which is focused solely on the police. But, it turns out that this drama is more about surviving and overcoming obstacles, which I am totally into. So join me as I recap the first episode of what is hopefully to be a wonderful and enriching drama experience. Continue reading
