For those of you just discovering our awesome blog, I am Kmuse, one of the two main bloggers in The Crazy Ahjummas. I am a mother of three and an avid kdrama watcher, in that I love to watch literally everything. There are very few currently airing dramas that I am not watching so if you have any questions about them (or really any drama since I have seen an insane amount) feel free to ask me in the comments. Or better yet come like our facebook page and ask me there. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-crazy-ahjummas/336988683021748?fref=ts For those of you who have not read my past recaps, I am one of those bloggers that really likes to just discuss my opinions on certain scenes or concepts of the drama. We don't go step by step through the whole thing. So if you are looking for a more complete recap you might have to look elsewhere (and then come back and read ours of course).
So now that the introduction has been crossed off my to do list, let's jump into episode one and everything "Mask". The most melotastic first episode I have watched in a long time. I predict that this one is going to be an epic crazy ride.
Ji Sook stares down at the ocean below and with tears in her eyes, sends her parents and brother a goodbye message (sounds just like a suicide note), telling them to live better lives than how they have til now. Tears stream down her face as the last bit of wire cord brakes and the car plummets into the ocean. We next see the body of Ji Sook in the morgue (obviously dead) and her voice over cursing the moment she came in contact with this crazy guy.
|SQUEEEEEE is anyone else feeling the crazy makjang vibes around now?|
|Isn't she just a winner....|
playing a waltz in her head as her supervisor rampages over her bad sale figures. I kid you not, as the hulk of a woman yells at her, she is humming a waltz to the screaming. Bwahahaha, the music goes on as we see Ji Sook's supervisor get more and more worked up while Ji Sook remains lost in her head.
IMPORTANT AB BREAK
|ABS!!! Abs, abs, and more glorious abs. Yumm, Joo Ji Hoon really does have a beautiful chest, and we ahjummas thank him for his hard work on showing them off.|
I am thoroughly enjoying this drama. This writer is known for taking a typical kdrama stereotype or trope and feeding it a diet of red bull to up the notch of makjang. Something which I personally love. If you really look at the different segments you will see this in every aspect of the drama. From the revenge, the characters personalities/actions, and even the music which is larger than life. Why have dinner at a fancy restaurant, when you can have an elaborate french style picnic with full symphony? Why have a car be on the edge of a cliff, when you can have it dangling half way down the side in full plummet? Why have an emotionally stunted leading man, when you can go for one that is literally crazy? Or for that matter, why have only a partial chest shower scene, when you can have the whole torso and then some? This writer goes big and bold and I suspect it will only go larger from here.
