#5 How Many Times Can A Ghost Seeing Detective Get Hit in the Head in One Episode?Ghost Seeing Detective CheoYong began airing (or at least subs finally came out for the first two episodes) this week and we were introduced to our hero. A police officer (Oh Ji Ho - Fugitive Plan B) who solves crimes with the use of the ghosts of the murdered victims. Due to losing his partner, in a posession ritual killing related accident, he gives up serious crime and becomes a traffic cop. Five years later he is dragged back into the world of murders and ghosts and meets teenage ghost Han Na-Young (Jun Hyo Seong - Idol group Secret) who haunts the police station. They team up to fight crime and it is all types of quirky. I don't know why but they just make the cutest couple of crime fighters (not so much as any type of romantic couple, but more of a master and his unruly apprentice). I have too admit that whoever the director of this drama is, he has a great and deep love with hitting people over the back of their heads with a wooden stick. The amount of times our Hero gets knocked out got to the point that I even started to contemplate making it into a drinking game (for us non drinkers such as myself it could be a shot of Pepsi to help me stay up and watch everything. LOL) So if you want to see a quirky show full of spooky moments, cute squabbles, and our hero developing stick induced brain damage, be sure to check out this new show.

#4 The Women I Love to Hate
(I wrote this after episode 13 and at this point of the show I still think my feelings were justified:)

#3 Karma Comes to the Story of Empress KiTalking about karma, Empress Ki rewarded its viewers with the #1 Evil Overlord Family getting a huge heaping bowl full of it. Nyang's plans come to fruition as the selfish empress is banished to the cold palace (kind of cracked me up that this palace was filled with spiderwebs and icicles yet was supposedly just in a different part of the compound) and began her suffering by having to sleep with no blankets and eat only gruel. Her brother confronts Nyang who informs him (with the scariest look) that this is not the end of her revenge but just the beginning. That she won't stop until he is left crying over the broken and dead bodies of his sister and father. The Emperor is not staying still either and through a series of political moves and help from his supporters he is able to overthrow much of the regents power. For followers of the show who have hated and screamed at their TV's as these people did horrible things, it was truly a great moment. I have to admit I probably cheered out loud once or twice.

#2 Bromance ET StyleIt was so so so hard to choose a favorite moment from this weeks My Love From Another Star. There was the great scene where Song-Yi went into super cute baby talk mode when demanding that her alien boyfriend come to her room right now (I think if I ever talked to my husband in that voice there is a good chance he would divorce me. LOL Yes it is that annoying).
Cutesy Song Yi Clip
Our Alien is Outed Clip
But the scene that truly won my heart and is my #2 moment of the week was between Do Min Joon and his future possible brother in law Yoon Jae. Min Joon manages to get drunk when getting permission from our heroine's father to officially court her. And we all know what happens when our cute alien gets drunk. HEHEHE He flashes himself and Song Yi's brother from a phone booth into his apartment, totally outing himself (before he was officially outed to the world). Now most people would be a little upset or weirded out by this turn of events, but not Yoon Jae (happens to be obsessed about space, astronomy, and all things alien related). He instead treats the drunk Min Joon as if he is royalty and the next morning when he sobers up, Min Joon finds that his new friend only has one request. He slowly puts out his finger and poor Min Joon winces as he reenacts the scene from ET. This scene officially not only gets on my countdown for this week, but is possibly one of my top favorite moments from the whole series. So congrats to all you viewers out there that enjoy a little Meta humor in their dramas.

Recap Episode 3
Honorable MentionsI want to do a quick shout out to a few other highlights of the week. I know I know, but it just kills me to not reward excellence. Feel lucky I stopped at only three.
Potato Star - Karaoke WarsSeveral of the members of the Potato Star world travel together to enjoy some hot springs. However due to infighting everyone is silent and angry throughout the whole vacation. Determined to have some quality family time, youngest son Hye-Sung is devices a plan to bring everyone together. He cajoles and begs til his family comes out to enjoy some karaoke but instead everyone uses this opportunity to sing out their issues with each other. My personal favorite was when the garage ahjumma started singing to the mom (her boss) about how her house, kids, and money should have all been hers hehehe.
Beyond the Clouds - Revenge is PrettyI am excited for this new drama now that I have finished the first two episodes. They have really put some money into this drama since they shot on location in Thailand. Can I just say that I love how they went that extra mile to actually go to another country to comply with the storyline. It gave the whole show an extra exotic feel. Add to that the fact that leading man Yoon Kye-Sang (Greatest Love- I am so excited he jumped out of the B Role zone) is knocking it out of the park in his portrayal of Jung Se-Ro, an incarcerated patsy for murder and a jewel heist and you could not have made me any happier.

Emergency Couple - Sexy CPRI am pretty sure that no one has ever thought of CPR as being sexy before. But that was before this scene in Emergency Couple. Chang Min's emotions are slowly being reengaged for his ex wife Jin Hee. However it looks like things might be heating up between Jin Hee and her boss Cheon Soo. Or at least they are in Chang Min's overactive imagination. I would just like to point out that the music used in this scene is HILARIOUS. I will never look at CPR the same way.

OK, OK, I am stepping back away from the keyboard because I think that I could continue to find scene after scene that I want to talk about this week. I am giddy just writing about all the shows I love and now I want to go watch everything again. Unfortunately that will have to wait and instead I will start watching everything for next week. Who knows, maybe we will find A scene from our first Thailand drama mentioned on my blog now that I am watching the Thai Full House remake (just a quick mention that it is absolutely adorable). And I am sure that we are in for a crazy finale from My Love From Another Star. Not to mention we are heading to the final run with our dramas Lets Eat and I Need Romance 3 so maybe they will have some spectacular scenes that we can add to our countdown. Whatever happens, I am sure I will enjoy every drama filled minute of it.
Till next week,
