Next THANK YOU so very very very much to K Muse & to Dongsaeng for putting up with this very silent & completely unhelpful Unnie over the last 6 months. If not for you guys, this labor of love of ours would have died a fast death. You kept us going & even helped us thrive beyond our dreams. Which is probably a reflection on how much I am not needed but I don't care you have to keep putting up with me. I may disappear every once in a while but you people are stuck w me!
It would seem that uri dongsaeng let the cat out of the bag already, for the first time in months, this weekend I sat down & watched K Dramas. 6 hours worth of K Dramas nonetheless! It was like manna from heaven for my weary soul. I wanted to watch them over the last few months but A) have been way too busy taking care of my son & the rest of my motley crew and B) couldn't handle the extreme drama, when I had actual real life drama pulling me under. It was too much emotionally for this mommy to handle all at once. So I had to take a real break from all things KDrama. I still had my tunes though. Thank goodness for KPop!!
When last we spoke, I was supposed to be doing reviews, per episode, of The Master's Sun, but then things got bad around my neck of the woods & I had to stop what I was doing & go into offensive mode for my son's health. Well on Saturday night I finished off TMS' last 3 eps. Sigh....where to begin. First, I am not going to do a detailed review/recap. It's been too long for one of those.
Cliffs Notes version:
He gets his memories back, he pays off her contract w Madame Go, he is still in love with her, she is still in love with him, BUT she is afraid of herself & of the life she leads & that it could put him in danger, so she tries to leave. First she helps him solve the whole Hee Joo vs Ha Na fiasco. Yay. I thoroughly enjoyed Little Sun's over the top stomachache/appendicitis on the plane. Seriously so funny! Then she finds the guy that her spirit hung out with for 3 years while she was comatose and it's him she is leaving with. She comes back, that age old K Drama plot of a year later (or 2 or 3 or 5 whatever) & they have the happily ever after reunion, after she proves she is good enough for him? What?!? I get she has pride & all & I can't completely blame her but really, it irked me. Just another device to keep them apart until the last minute. Ugh.
Okay personally, I thought ep 16 was boring. It dragged on & on. It had it's cute moments of course. But blah blah blah, it was quite obvious they were just stalling for time. By episode 17 they picked things back up, about 1/2 way through 17, but eventually. It had a happy, cute, everything tied up in a neat little bow ending, but it left me underwhelmed all in all, after such great episodes all the way through. I think they should have simply ended it in 16, not pushed for that extra episode, just for ratings. And yes they kissed & yes it was okay, but once again, underwhelming. After everything this couple went through & the amazing chemistry they had together, there really should have been a little more umph in that last kiss.
Best part of the ending for me was that his aunt got to be pregnant. I thought that was incredibly weird but very sweet. Maybe she'll grow a heart after all. And how cute were Kang Woo & Little Sun at the end walking the red carpet. All in all I'll give TMS a standard 8.5. It had the potential for a 10 but the last 2 eps were hum drum & did not live up to the rest of it. BUT at least the Hong Sisters didn't pull another Big. I'd have had to crack some heads otherwise.
And yes, I have finally started watching my Hyun-y, KHJ's new drama Inspiring Generation. I have only made it through ep 3, so I am looking forward to seeing my man in ep 4 but I have to say the kid they picked to play him young, is awesome. Major acting chops. They did a phenomenal job casting him as a young Shin Jung Tae. I can't wait to dive back in after I get some chores done. I spent this weekend sick, again & am still recovering bronchitis. Yes again. I swear 5 times in less than 2 years on major antibiotics, breathing treatments, codeine cough syrup & steroids I am beginning to think WI is trying to kill me. O.O
Before I sign off I have one awesome announcement, next month I will be in Merrillville, Indiana to watch BAP LIVE in concert. And who bought me these tickets? Well my Captain Awesome, no less. How great is my guy?!?!? I didn't even know they were coming here. I have been so focused on my kids that I hadn't even paid any attention to anything. So I will be heading out April 19th for a girls weekend w one of my favorite people. Yay us! I so totally need this break. It has been an insane 6 months!!!!!
I have missed all of my fellow addiKts so much & have thought about you daily. I cannot promise that I will start doing episode by episode recaps again, I simply don't have the time or energy but I will continue to post & talk to you again weekly. I promise. And trust me I will talk about KHJ's drama every opportunity I get. So look for me on Twitter, FB & here. Sending all my love out into the Blogosphere.
To give you something to enjoy & to help you get moving & smile here is Super Junior_M's Korean version MV of "Swing". So much cuteness & eye candy! I am awake now! Now that's what I'm talking about!
