Well, hello there. So, I have a confession to make. I forgot to do a couple of things last week in my first reviews of this drama. The obvious first one is that I neglected to, oh, I don't know, review the 2nd episode? I suppose "forgot" isn't the best word. I didn't forget. I just didn't get to it. But we don't need to focus on that little slip up. The real thing that I forgot to take care of is something I like to do whenever I start reviewing a new drama. I like to take a moment and welcome any first-time visitors to our site. New dramas often bring new readers to us which is always so much fun. If you are new here, let me extend to you our warmest and craziest ahjumma welcome. We hope you like what you find here. We hope we can fulfill your drama needs. And of course we hope you stick with us and tell all your friends about us, but I would never stoop so low as to actually write something like that. Seems a little self-serving, don't you think? So instead, I'll just keep my mouth shut but secretly hope that you like us and stay with us and participate and share the love. It's much classier that way. I may be crazy, but I still try to keep it classy you know.
Okay, now that that's done, shall we continue on with the task at hand,

7. Bird is the Word
He goes on about how he has all these beautiful women flocking around him because he's a hotshot news anchor, yet she's still the one he regrets not having the chance to sleep with for some weird reason since she's so plain and all. What a charmer, huh? She's appalled by what she deems as sexual harassment, to which he replies that he's just being honest and that that's what all men think and if they say otherwise, they're con men. But then he turns around and gives her a different story - one that he calls fantasy. He tells her how they've worked together for 5 years and how in the moment he found out he was dying, he realized that he had loved her for all of those 5 years. He talks about her smile and how much he needs it and that that's why he didn't want to tell her about his illness, for fear that it would cause her smile to disappear just when he needed it most. By the end of this "fantasy", he's in tears. Even she, hundreds of miles away, gets the sense that the "fantasy" was more reality than the supposed harsh "truth". Smart girl. And seriously like the most romantic drama phone call ever. The butterflies were not just dancing in my belly, but singing too.

So, what did we think of episode 2? Are we happy so far? Doing okay? Hanging in there? Curious and dying to see what happens next? Me too! For now though, I'm going to finish this up, post it, and head to bed because it's late and I'm tired. Goodnight! And may the ever-so handsome Lee Jin Wook visit us all in our dreams. :)
p.s. I should also have mentioned as I began that I am obviously several weeks behind. I really don't like being behind. Of course I'm glad to not have to wait for episodes to air yet since I'm not caught up, but if I'm going to be reviewing, I need to be more current. I can't make any promises or anything, but I am going to attempt to fast forward some of these episodes a bit and put them out on other days other than just Friday. You know, in a perfect world where nothing ever comes up to derail those intentions. I'd love to get up to speed ASAP with these, so don't be surprised if they start flying at you faster than normal. Of course, don't be surprised if they don't either. We'll just have to see what happens as we commence. The good news is that I managed to finish episode 2 and watch all of 3 today, so that's progress. And I had to force myself to stop after that because I can't get too far ahead before getting the reviews done. Ahjumma brain and all that you know.
