Now, this one had less to make fun of then the first two episodes. Not to say that there wasn't anything laughable here, but I missed my Brain Baby terribly. I hope it comes back soon. I want to know more about it. But for now, we'll dabble in a little rustic Joseon medicine.
Remember where we left off last time? Dr Jin was about to lose his head...literally. Then the Left State Counselor, Kim Byung Hee (who I like to call Jaejoon's Bad Dad), conveniently collapses and passes out.
Here's a screenshot that maybe wasn't exactly necessary, but it's Jaejoong. I will never miss an opportunity to throw some eye candy in to the mix. Blood and guts and medical gore or the most gorgeous man to ever walk the face of this planet? Yeah, no contest.
And the surgery begins. Okay Dr Jin, now's your time to shine. Shine like you've never shone before. Shine like your life depends on it.
This sight never gets old. Hammering a giant spike into a skull. Yummy.
Kyung Tak doesn't take too kindly to this idea. He whips out his pistol.
I had to laugh at how squeamish the Royal Doctor was at the sight of blood. Pansy!
|Again, another superfluous shot of my Hero. It's my blog, I'll put up as many shots of him as I want, so neener neener.|
Then big brother comes charging in - raging like a bull! Talk about being mistreated! You think Dad's bad? Big brother Kim Dae Gyun is a piece of work. He screams at Kyung Tak for listening to Dr Jin over the Royal Doctor.
After the brother's square off, we jump forward a few days to a party - a feast to celebrate Byung Hee's recovery.
The gisaeng Choon Hong enters and Dae Gyun is struck by her beauty. Not in a romantic way. The guy's a pig. A dirty, rotten, no good, slimy, filthy pig. You can practically hear him grunt. Gross.
Dr Jin and Young Rae arrive at the feast. Dr Jin is immediately invited up to the tent with Byung Hee. He's all smiles and niceties now. Last time they met he was screaming at the good doctor and ready to lop his head off. Funny what a little life-saving can do to one's attitude.
Sensing the tension, Prince Ha Eung starts to dance. Um, yeah. That wasn't a pretty sight. I guess it was supposed to be funny, but yeah, not so much. I appreciate his trying though. And everyone there thought it was rip-roaring hilarious, so I guess it served its purpose.
His tune changes immediately once he's had a nice cold dip in the water. He starts calling her names and even tries to drown her.
She's not breathing.
My favorite line is when Ha Eung says, "You don't have anything better to do? To a corpse?" Bwahahaha! He thinks the good doctor is making out with a dead body! Hahaha and ew!
See what a classy guy Dae Gyun is? The lady is laying in the street, bleeding profusely from the head and unconcious. When asked by one of his companions what's going on, his response is, "Nothing. They just ran into the horse" and gallops off, leaving her for dead. Yeah, I know this guy just showed up, but I hate him already. He's a nasty piece of work.
On there way back home after a full day of life saving and fun, a guy falls down in front of them with an apparent stomachache. At this point I just started laughing. Jin can't go anywhere without having some medical emergency literally fall at his feet. Is he like a sick person magnet or what? Not once yet has anyone actually had to go and find him in order to save someone - they all just try to die right in front of him. Convenient.
Young Rae instantly recognizes this for what it is - gwejil (or cholera). She also goes into a panic. Hmm, one would think that she's had a bad experience with this particular disease before. I wonder... but my curiosity will have to wait until the next episode, because this is where this one leaves off. Stay tuned for episode 4!
