High School Love-On ♥ Recap O6

image

WHyun confesses to Angel and she is startled. Humans say strange things when they have heat exhaustion. It’s a violation to throw a pitch when she’s not up to bat. She runs and Umbrella follows. Angel apologizes for lying to him. She starts to tell him she is really an angel but stops.

image

The bullies are whining out loud about WHyun’s confession and threatening eavesdroppers while Angel is shutting WHyun out. It’s really awkward. Neither WHyun nor Angel know what to do in this situation.

image

Gram suddenly decides to close the restaurant and go on vacation. But she is really going to the hospital for tests. Turns out she has some kind of terminal disease. She asks the doctor to give her something to ease the pain until she can set things in order and puts the restaurant up for sale. She doesn’t know what to do with YHyun since she doesn’t want to send him to the witch.

image

The rumor of WHyun’s confession has spread and everyone is teasing them. Since they live together and are not cousins a lot of speculating is going on.

image

Angel goes to the restaurant early to help Gram prepare but the store is closed. WHyun thinks it’s just an excuse to spend time with him. They still don’t know the she is in the hospital and has put the place up for sale.

image

WHyun finally catches up with Angel and refuses to accept a rejection. She says that’s not it. She is still uncertain about her feelings. He promises to wait until she knows. But she can’t run away from him anymore. Then he asks her to spend the day with him tomorrow.

image

Next day Hyun teaches Angel to ride a bike but she doesn’t need much teaching. He gives her a push and off she goes. She is a fast learner or athletically inclined. But he thinks it because he taught her well. WHyun is good at cooking, riding bikes, and all sorts of things.

image

Gram predicted that WHyun would get a girlfriend and that they would go on a picnic. Angel wishes she was there so she could tell her. So they call and she keeps up the vacation ruse. They think Gram is happily on vacation when she is actually getting a death sentence from the doctor.

image

That evening, WHyun takes Angel to see fireworks. He puts his hands over her ears to make it even more beautiful. He’s really being nice to her. But she keeps talking about humans as though she isn’t one.

image

WHyun searches the Internet for ways to get closer to Angel. He chooses to share a scary movie on his phone but he is more frightened than she is. ManAngel sneaks into the house and turns off the lights and WHyun faints.

image

Seems like the man angel is a rogue and does all kind of things to avoid the reaper. He even assaults a policeman who is in the process of interrogating bullies. Rogue gets arrested and Reaper doesn’t follow.

image

WHyun asks how Angel liked today and she says it was fun, especially when he passed out. What happens in dramas with music and candlelight? Angel blushes. She cooks for him the next morning but it isn’t very good.

image

Angel is on cleanup duty at the school and Reaper helps. He has found a way for her to go back. All she has to do is renew her vows and she can return to being an angel in 7 days. He hands her a Black Note that he got from an angel who voluntarily gave up his position and warns her to guard her heart.

image

Angel meets a girl at school who is reading a book about angels. The angel in the book becomes human after falling in love with one. But can an angel really have human emotions? She hasn’t finished reading the book.

image

WHyun goes to help his friend and Angel learns that Gram has put the restaurant up for sale. She calls Gram who says not to worry. Gram will take care of it and please don’t tell WHyun.

image

Meanwhile, WHyun is helping his friend sew dolls. He takes one for payment and gives it to Angel. She is happy to get a matching doll for the one she found at the dump. And they walk home holding the doll’s hands. (Earlier, Bullie tricked Angel into meeting her so she could drop something in her purse and accuse her of stealing it. Does she never learn?) DramaBay

hello-britbrat asked: Hello! I'm in love with your blog, lots of kdrama (woot woot)! I recently made a Kdrama network and I was wondering if you wanted to be a part of it! The network url is: kdramanetwork (add the tumblr url). It's totally up to you if you want to join, I won't be mad if you decide not to. The application is on the website (network). More information about the network is on my latest post; it will require you to repost, but if you don't want to it's totally fine. Thanks!


Answer:

I didn’t mean to ignore your invitation and I appreciate your comments. I probably won’t join your network because I’m a bit lazy these days. My recaps are a little different because I try to achieve a comic strip style with more pictures than words. And since truth can be found in beauty and simplicity those are my focus. Thanks again, Mary

High School Love-On ♥ Recap O5

image

Angel and Umbrella arrive just in time for her to use her powers to stop Bully’s motorcycle from running WHyun down. Then she faints in Umbrella’s arms again. WHyun starts to fight back and Umbrella joins him. A man angel stops the fight and sends the bullies on their way.

image

Angel treats the wounds on WHyun’s face with athlete’s foot cream and praises him for trusting Umbrella. WH warns her to stop fainting in Umbrella’s arms.

image

Not only does he warn her but researches what could possibly be wrong. He decides it must be narcolepsy so he prepares a breakfast full of kiwis and dates so she won’t be fainting at all. It’s also for Gram who isn’t feeling well.

image

The school board meets to discuss the cheating incident and decide to sweep it under the rug since Bully is the son of a politician. Stepmom objects on the basis that a student could be scarred for life but they wonder why she cares so much. Is there a student who is special to her?

image

Bully confronts the guy who helped him cheat and say he owes him. Cheater stands up to him this time and asks who he thinks they will believe?

image

Cheater isn’t the only one to confront Bully. There are a couple of others including one of the bullie girls. Angel confronts him with a band-aid.

image

There is a group project but everyone bails and leaves Angel and WHyun to do it. Angel draws a line and tells WHyun not to cross it to see if he would be tempted. Of course he crosses the line.

image

CopDad is at the dentist for an implant and he is scared. Someone said that implants hurt really bad. But he doesn’t want Umbrella to know that he is getting old. Being a good father is a priority. Then he goes to eat with his son.

image

Angel is a bit nervous when WHyun helps her with her apron. He reminds her that they are cousins and she chides him for lying. Bullie girl is devastated.

image

WHyun brings Gram breakfast and reminds her that he has no one but her. If anything happens to her who will tell him what to do? She says it’s just old age not to worry. But when he leaves she goes to the bathroom and barfs.

image

Bullie takes Angel aside and asks if she likes WHyun? She never really thought about it. Apparently Bullie’s mom bullies her to the point that she wants to die and WHyun is her reason for continuing to breathe. WHyun calls while they are talking and Angel doesn’t answer. Besides that, when she gets back to the restaurant she treats him coldly but her heart is hurting.

image

In Gym class, Bullie pretends to hurt her ankle helping Angel clean up and gets WHyun to take her to the nurses office. She starts complaining to him about her mom and he says she is lucky to have a mom.

image

Umbrella invites Angel to get ice cream. She takes him to a cosmetic shop to buy lipstick for Gram hoping it will make her feel better. ManAngel gives them ice cream for free since he is starting a new business. Angel invites Umbrella to the restaurant for spicy rice cakes because he is “a good male human.”

image

Ice cream drips on Umbrella’s sleeve and he goes to clean it off. While he is gone, Reaper appears and she thanks him for helping with the necklace. Without angels mere humans have to depend on luck. But why is it unlucky being human? Reaper tells her to guard her heart if she doesn’t want to disappear like the ice cream. Umbrella returns and wonders why she is talking to herself.

image

Setpmom finally gets the courage to go to Gram’s restaurant and tries to give her money to make WHyun transfer schools again. Being around her real son makes her uncomfortable. But why should he have to suffer for his deadbeat mom’s happiness? WHyun, Umbrella, and Angel arrive and ask what the Math teacher is doing there. Gram returns the money saying teacher forgot it. WHyun tells Gram that’s his Ethics teacher. Kids call her “the witch”.

image

At home, Witch flashes back to when she gave WHyun the necklace and abandoned him. One necklace has a lock and the other has a key. She cries.

image

Angel gives Gram the lipstick she bought at the cosmetic store. Gram likes it an offers to tell her fortune using Go-Stop cards. There are times when it’s accurate. She does it just for fun. Cards say that Angel is luck guest and WHyun found love. WHyun chides them for learning so much about life from dramas.

image

Angel, Umbrella, WHyun and Bullie go biking. Bullie tells Angel to stay out of sight because she is going to confess to WHyun. WHyun rejects Bullie and asks Angel to come to him. DramaBayChoi

High School ♥ Love-On ♥ Reflections

image

The Infinite boys (Nam Woo-Hyun and Lee Sung-Yeol) are really cute. WooHyun frequently says the opposite of what he means and his bravado gets him in a lot of trouble. SungYeol (Umbrella) is the smartest kid in school and helps WH and Angel out a lot.  It’s hard to believe that the heroine in this story, Angel (Kim Sae-Ron) is only 14-15 years old and has already been in 8 movies and 8 dramas. She is the star that makes the drama worth watching.

image

It seems like Angel turned human because of her interest in humans via KDramas (not because she saved WHyun). She interprets everything through her drama lens and longs for the human experience. She still has powers but using them drains all her energy and they are gradually fading.

image

Math teacher, StepMom, DeadbeatMom abandoned her own son for her happiness and even worse, she tries to get him transferred to another school because he makes her uncomfortable. But Gram is having none of that. WHyun already transferred once because of a stalker’s mom. Bad StepMom! Although CopDad has good intentions he is rather clueless.

image

No wonder Unbrella hates StepMom although he doesn’t know everything. He blames her for breaking up his parents marriage. Umbella is nice to nearly everyone except StepMom. She is nice to him until she suspects him of helping a cheater. Then her true colors manifest. WHyun tells her Umbrella is innocent but she doesn’t want proof because it’s dangerous physically and politically.

image

Gram is amazing! She runs a restaurant on top of raising WHyun and taking in Angel. She knows when to fight and when to bow out. But it looks like she has a serious illness. If she doesn’t tell anyone, who will help?

image

There’s another human angel that shows up from time to time. At first he seems like a janitor at the school, then a homeless man, and next an entrepreneur giving out free ice cream. The Korean bully culture has me baffled. Older kids bully younger kids. The rich bully the poor. The police bully victims. Most are confrontational although many choose to remain victims rather than explain or defend themselves and suffer the fallout. is there no justice?

   It’s not surprising to me that the The Three Musketeers opening was awesome, but check out Dramabeans recap of episode 1. Set in the Joseon Dynasty period.

Surplus Princess (The Idle Mermaid) may be the most promising new drama of the season since it is cuteness overload and starts out with a passionate underwater kiss. Ha-Ni (Jo Bo-Ah) is a mermaid. For a man she is in love with, she becomes a human being and begins to live at the Ingyeo House. The house is for people who are preparing to land their first jobs. To permanently become a human being, Ha-Ni must make the man love her within 100 days. There is one episode weekly Thursdays on Viki, DramaBay,  GoodDrama, and DramaFire. Recaps

image

It’s Okay. There’s Love is about a house full of psychos and shrinks with psychiatric problems. It’s packed with dark humor and surprises. Jang Jae-Yeol is a schizophrenic mystery writer and radio DJ. Ji Hae-Soo is going through her first year fellowship in psychiatry at a University Hospital. After she meets Jang Jae-Yeol, her life goes through big changes. It airs Wednesdays and Thursdays on Viki, DramaFever, DramaBay, and KDrama. It’s being recapped on DramaBeans and CouchKimchi.
   Night Watchman’s Journal was promoted as a ghost story but it is really demonic. I trashed it when the demonized king was planning to murder his devoted wife to marry a witch. Actually the night after the second episode I dreamed that I was casting demons out of the lead characters. No fun.

High School ♥ Love-On ♥ Recap O4

image

WHyun finds Angel and she gives him the necklace. She smells bad and he asks if she fell in. How did he know? If she has to fall at least she should fall in love. She momentarily sees Reaper (who secretly helped her with the necklace) but he disappears and she faints, probably from trying to use her powers.

image

WHyun piggybacks Angel home and notices that she has a fever. So he puts her down in his bed and takes care of her. He even gets medicine.

image

When Angel gets her energy back she goes downstairs and finds WHyun sleeping on the couch. She covers him and goes outside. He goes outside where she is stretching and gives her the cell phone he bought before. He puts his number as the first 10 on speed dial. He denies having her number but threatens to confiscate the phone if she doesn’t answer when he calls.

image

The first thing Angel does with her new cell phone is to take a selca. WHyun shows her how to do it properly. But the first phone number she gets after his Umbrella’s. She wants to get Grandma’s and her other important people.

image

WHyun accidentally eats crab and has a sever allergic reaction. Umbrella’s mom has a reaction to the soup as well and they are both taken to the emergency room. Gram says that WHyun’s mother was allergic to seafood.

image

The test is in a couple of days and Angel wants WHyun to study. He doesn’t want to because he just got out of the hospital. She wants to know what number she is on his phone but he won’t tell until she leaves. She is #1.

image

At school, Angel and WHyun stop to get soft drinks and the bullies try to separate them. bullie #1 invites WHyun to study with her while bully #2 escorts Angel away. WHyun ignores the invitation and walks away.

image

(Fast forward past the bully time) Angel tries to help YHyun study and he isn’t cooperative. He blows bubbles and she wants to learn how. She finds it difficult. Then she asks about his relationship with the bullie girl. He accuses her of being jealous but when she leaves he admits that it’s him that’s jealous.

image

Bully forces a smart student to get him the test questions and he gets caught. But he lies about it and says that Umbrella gave him the answers getting him in a lot of trouble with his stepmom. WHyun goes to Stepmom and tells her that Umbrella is innocent. She tells him that bringing proof will put him in danger. (I skipped over a lot of bulling in this episode but this is the worst. Bully and his friends catch WHyun, beat him, and worse.) DramaBay

Happy Endings

image

Hotel King is all makjang but if I had to describe it in one word, that word would be “beautiful”. Everything about the drama was beautiful and I liked all the characters including the bad guy (Lee Deok-Hwa) who was dominated by envy all his life. Baek (Kim Hae-Sook) was the most entertaining character as she changed from super spy to bad guy to childlike (from amnesia) Of course the OPT gets together in the end along with JaeWan’s (Lee Dong-Wook) childhood friend Roman Lee (Jin Tae-Hyun) Luckily the drama has run its course so you can marathon all 32 episodes and I highly recommend it. Watch on Viki

image

Triangle is makjang and beautiful as well. Little bro (Siwan) is killed in the end because of his misplaced loyalty to the Chairman who killed his biological father. In the end Chairman’s hit man goes to prison, Young Dal (Kim Jae-Joong) gets everything and Chairman commits suicide after losing everything and his minions turn on him.  YoungDal gets the girl and big bro (Lee Beom-Soo) goes to America to be with the woman he loves. Ultimately this drama is a JaeJoong showcase and well worth watching if you like JJ. Watch on Viki

image

God’s Quiz is similar to Eleventh Hour about mad scientists, human cloning, human trafficking, and other gritty subjects. But the main characters Ryu Deok-Hwan as JinWoo and Lee Dong-Hae as Han ShiWoo (even though he is killed at the end) made it worth watching for me. Turns out that the worst mad scientist is the main character’s mother who persists in illegal cloning of humans with the support of the main bad guy. She changes a little when her only son is threatened and puts an end to the bad guy. She takes responsibility for a potentially failed clone of herself to raise her as a daughter. On DramaBay.
  Although “You’re All Surrounded” got good ratings, it was a waste.

WHyun overhears a humiliating phone conversation and His smart mouth gets him into trouble again. In return, Bully pushes him in the water. WH’s fear of water causes him to nearly drown even though the water isn’t deep but he is once again rescued by Angel with the help of SungYeol.

image

While YHyun was in the water he lost a treasured necklace. The scene changes to SungY’s stepmom looking longingly at a matching necklace.

image

WHyun looks everywhere for the necklace and Gram explains that his mother gave it to him. She tells Angel to go to school since she is smart and already has a uniform. She can make new friends and perhaps regain her memory. Maybe she can help YHyun with his homework too.

image

Angel comes to class and tells everyone that she lives with WHyun. Then she invites everyone to come to Gram’s restaurant except for Bully. They have a right to refuse customers. But what about the girl bullies?

image

WuHyun is targeted by the bullies in class while Angel is targeted in Gym. When WHyun comes to the rescue, and they are both bullied by the teacher. Too much bullying! It seems that the bully girls don’t like the fact that Angel is on good terms with the smartest guy in class and the best looking one.

image

Angel asks if WHyun found the necklace? He lies that it doesn’t matter since he doesn’t even remember what his mother looks like. She tells him to stop lying. If he is upset about something, he should say so.

image

After school, Angel hides from the bullies. But why is she hiding? She didn’t do anything wrong. She tells the tree things she should have said. If she used her powers, they wouldn’t be able to bother her,

image

Angel goes back to the school and SungY (Umbrella) helps her get into the pool room. She looks for the necklace without actually getting into the water. Why is it important? She says her mother gave it to her but she gives up easily.

image

Bully girls put in a prank order and sneak out when Angel and WHyun show up. WH intervenes when a waitress is being assaulted by an older man who claims to be her father. Waitress denies that she knows the man and he is arrested. Since he never took responsibility she has no father.

image

Angel can’t collect for the delivery and WHyun tells her not to worry. Umbrella calls and she runs off happily to meet him. He gives her the necklace and says if she is thankful to buy a car. Angel has bad memories about a car.

image

Then they go to play video games. and she buys him a toy car. Angel expresses her gratitude for finding the necklace but Umbrella is more thankful. He was having a bad day. Angel: “If anyone is bothering you I will punish them.” But then she would get into trouble too. He asks how long she will be staying at WHyun’s house. Angel says “Until I find something.” He guesses that she loses things a lot and she guesses that she does.

image

Whyun is shopping for Gram’s restaurant and encounters Umbrella’s stepmom who happens to be a teacher at his school. She is shocked to hear his name and follows him. Remember that she is the one who has an identical necklace to the one WHyun lost so she follows him but hides from Gram.

image

Angel is late getting home and WHyun goes to find her. He buys her a cell phone so he can contact her when she is missing. Angel had a really rough time getting home with the necklace intact. She tells him not to lose it again because she is really tired but she puts it around his neck. Viki DramaBay
