Kdrama Recaps

High School ♥ Love-On ♥ Recap O1

image

High School Love-On is a 20 episode supernatural coming-of-age drama airing once a week on DramaBay and DramaFever. Two adorable episodes are out and I haven’t seen any recaps yet so I want to give it a shot.

image

The story begins with a flash-forward to the spring of 2016 when a mysterious girl keeps flashing in and out of WuHyn’s (Nam Woo-Hyun) vision. He recognizes a book she dropped and a necklace but he can’t catch up with her. He mumbles “We loved each other.”

image

Back to the present, a reaper angel (Kim Sae-Ron) watches from a ledge as the two lead guys nearly collide. She freezes time and moves SungYul (Lee Sung-Yeol) out of the path of the scooter but WuHyn skids and falls into the street.

image

WuHyn goes to his grandma’s restaurant to help out because he doesn’t want to see her cry. Her tears are actually from peeling onions.

image

SungYul has lunch with his policeman dad and they argue about the new step mother. Soon they are interrupted by a crowd around a dying man.

image

Angel calls out the man’s spirit and tells him that she guides dead humans. Then she sends his spirit to it’s destination with a wave of her hand. Angels and humans are different. They can pass right through each other without feeling a thing. But since she met them, things are starting to change.

image

WuHyn has a stalker and Stalker has a momster. Since Stalker has been skipping her tutoring lessons to follow him, WuHyn becomes a target. Stalker is so ashamed that she goes up on the roof to jump. Apparently she had contemplated it before but she calls WuHyn.

image

Angel is addicted to dramas and Reaper doesn’t understand. It’s the same story over and over with different actors. She wants to understand why people love when they know it will end. And why to they live knowing they are going to die. Reaper says she should focus on her job.

image

The drama gets interrupted and the climax by a death call. Next on the list is Stalker. But when she arrives, the image keeps altering between Stalker and WHyn. The Black Note falls and Angel transports to catch it. WHyn pushes Stalker to safety and falls on top of Angel on Momster’s car who breaks his fall. The price is the loss of her Black Note and Angel becomes human.

image

WuHyn wakes up in the ER next so Angel who is still unconscious. She is in shock but even more so when she discovers she is visible and he BlackNote is missing. WH asks where she came from and she points to the sky. Of course he doesn’t believe her and thinks she lost her memory.

image

Angel has a hard time believing the transformation but doesn’t seem especially upset about being human. She sees her companion reaper angel across the street and calls to him. Reaper appears in front of her but WuHyn can’t see him so he thinks she has brain damage because of him. It happened when she saved him so the answer may be in him.

image

WuHyn takes Angel to the police station to find out more about her. She borrows a name from a magazine. Momster is harassing WH’s family when he calls home. Momster bribes the teacher to fabricate a declaration accusing WH of causing trouble at school and driving her daughter to attempt suicide. Momster is the money manager for the school and has no problem lying. Angel objects as a witness and later vandalizes Momster’s car.

image

While Momster is ranting over her car, Angel is at Gram’s restaurant learning about eating. She can’t handle chopsticks so WH gives her a fork. When she actually tastes the food it is unpleasantly spicy.

image

Angel says she is the same age as WHyn but he thinks she is younger. She asks about the “Help Wanted” sign in the window and Mom asks if she has experience? WH doesn’t want her to stay but Gram say she can stay as long as she like since she saved WH’s life.

image

WHyn’s friend says it’s completely mysterious how he came out of the fall with no injuries. Momster has agreed to drop charges against WH if he transfers to a different school so stalker can focus on her studies.

image

Gram had a good day in the restaurant and is counting the money. But why is she handling dirty money when she just showered. When you get older money is the greatest help. WHyn received a pair of shoes for his birthday from his father in America. He gets a pair every year that don’t fit. And he doesn’t even want to talk about his mom. So he gives the shoes to Angel who is very grateful.

image

Stalker calls and says she can prevent him being transferred if he will explain and beg her mom. She will do anything if he will date her. He tells her not to die no matter how hard it gets. Then he tells her to let him go.

image

As WuHyn walks away, Stalker catches him in a back hug. He sees Angel nearby and says she is his girlfriend. Since Angel learned everything she knows about the human race from dramas, she thinks it all fun and games.

image

Angel asks if transferring schools is bad. It’s not bad but he will be leaving memories. Granted there are some memories he would like to erase. She says that humans are too complicated and wonders if she will be able to go back.

image

Reaper hasn’t yet found a way for Angel to go back and if he can’t she will eventually die like all humans. But who knows how long that will take.

image

WHyn gets a call to deliver spicy rice cakes to SungYul and his parents pay. SY doesn’t like his new stepmother because he believes that she broke up his parents marriage. StepMom says she is not the reason his family shattered. She is the one who took responsibility after the family shattered.

image

Momster is dead set on separating WHyn from stalker and is making their life hell with her demands. WH blames it all on Angel but he is the only person she knows. He denies knowing her and tells her to get lost.

image

Angel searches everywhere for her BlackNote including bookstores, libraries, and even the garbage. Reaper told her to not trust humans and she ended up a throw-away like the doll she found in the dump. It starts to rain and she encounters SY eating ramen in a convenience store.

image

As Angel is contemplating the feeling of betrayal, SY offers her an umbrella. As she walks along in the rain, she decides that the only way she can go back to the way it was is to die. So she steps into the path of an oncoming truck.

WGM ♥ Global2 ♥ 14 ♥ Key & Ari

image

Key and Ari are still working on their sundae list. Today he wants them to buy clothes for each other. She knows his style but is not confident. She lets her friends choose her clothes.

image

Key peeks into the window as Ari tries to select clothes that are his style. But she calls and tells him “Sorry” in case she doesn’t get it right.

image

Key is having an equally difficult time choosing clothes for Ari so he asks for recommendations from the clerk. He wants to buy something comfortable but first he chooses matching Micky Mouse hats.

image

Once the transformation is complete, Ari is in shorts with a loose top and Key’s top puts him in mind of Christmas. She thought Christmas would be nice and thinks he has a great sense of fashion.

image

Ari gets cold when they go to the ocean to dig for clams. They compete for digging the most clams and Ari wins but Key wins the pushing game.

image

Key and Ari go camping for the first time and nearly everything is set up when they arrive.

image

But they have to unfold the table, fire up the grill and decorate.

image

Key tells Ari to sit on the trampoline and he bounces her until they both lose balance. Anything is fun when they do it together.

image

Key and Ari are tired after jumping on the trampoline and she has a headache. Besides that it’s starting to rain.

image

Ari makes a Teruteru bosu doll that brings clear skies and waves it but it still rains. It’s supposed to be made the day before so it doesn’t rain tomorrow.

image

They cook the pork belly and the fire explodes. Ari calms it with lettuce leaves. Then they make ramen with the clams that they dug. Everything is delicious when they do it together.

image

Ari worries that she is eating too much but Key likes women who eat a lot on dates as opposed to those who don’t. They are well matched.

image

It stops raining and they play a game of “Truth or Dare” around a campfire. They have to write two questions they want to ask each other and Ari revisits the question about skinship.

image

Ari asks the first questions. Was her cooking really delicious? He says it was but that comes out to be a lie. Did his heart flutter for her. Yes. Truth.

image

Ari receives a mission card and Key calls her for an event on the beach. Ari has read the mission but Key hasn’t yet. DramaFever

WGM ♥ Global2 ♥ 13 ♥ Key & Ari

image

Key & Ari are going on a picnic and she has brought snack to eat on the way.

image

It’s raining when they get to the park but they are used to that. They play a bit with the seesaw, hoop, and windmills before going in.

image

They find a store full of traditional playthings and decide to buy a kite.

image

After enjoying the carrot-free picnic lunch Ari prepared, they draw each other’s picture on the kite. Ari emphasizes the piercings and reminds Key to include her beauty mark. Then they write wishes.

image

It’s windy so the kite flies high. When the string comes to an end they cut it and pray that their wishes will come true. Ari’s wish is to eat a lot of delicious food with Key. His wish is is for their happiness.

image

There is a zoo at the park with the usual animals and a clown on stilts.

image

The animal they are going to see now is a live version of Momo Chan.

image

Ari is afraid of animals and Key is trying to help her be less afraid by touching them. They hold a python around their shoulders and take a break with an orangutan. The orangitan immediately steals a banana from Ari’s purse.

image

It’s time to update the sundae list by marking out the things that were done and adding things they did that were not on the original list.

image

Ari takes out her “You did a great job” stamp and stamps Key all over with it. The bonus prize is a home cooked meal by Ari. First time she cooked doesn’t count.

image

Ari is cooking for Key and it’s really hard for him to not supervise. He has experience and she doesn’t but he makes up his mind to let her do it.

image

The dish is curry and dessert is cheesecake. The procedure was clumsy but the food is good. Ari shows Key a video of her day apart from him. She says it lucky that she met Key because he helped her learn to like some of the things she feared. She will work hard to make him thankful he met her. DramaFever

WGM ♥ Global2 ♥ 13 ♥ Puff & Wolf

image

Puff & Wolf are at the Painter show and she has planned a special event. 4 painters do a picture of Wolf in 4 parts and put it together.

image

Wolf made such a fuss over A.O.A. that Puff decided to pattern an event from them. First she dances to “Miniskirt”. And then the whole group comes out.

All things considered Puff’s event is very thoughtful and succeeds well. She had practiced with A.O.A. for a month to learn their moves.

Flower Gramps ITeam ♥ Recap 04

image

Pink has virtually moved in on the family and refuses to leave even when JunHyuk orders him out. He has already won the hearts of the women.

image

Chief Mole is manipulating the director by offering the the FGITeam a big case but his underlying motive is to is to disband the team.

image

The FGITeam is not happy about protecting a crappy person. Chef is a jerk and received a letter threatening his life.

image

Although the ITeam is assigned to guard Chef, Pink is angry. He blames the chef for the death of a close friend. Pink cursed him on SNS but didn’t threaten.

image

Behind the scenes Chef is verbally abusive to the team and his employees. Pink can’t take it anymore and threatens him in front of everyone. So when Chef dies from poisoning right in front of their eyes and the TV cameras Pink becomes the first suspect.

image

The ITeam searches Pink’s house and finds the poison. The worst thing they find on his laptop is a video of him dancing to an A-Pink song. He is obviously being framed but in order to prove that they have to find the killer.

image

EunJi traces the threat to a printer owned by the PD that produced Chef’s show. He sent the letter but in cahoots with Chef. It was a publicity stunt. PD poured his entire savings into the show so why would he kill the star?

image

Next they question the chef who ate the same poison but survived. He says the sous chef threatened Chef. But why would she do that?

image

While the bulk of the ITeam are investigating the sous chef and Chef’s wife, JunHyuk is investigating Pink. Pink has an overflowing sense of justice and loses his temper sometimes. Chef badmouthed a friend of Pink’s on TV who later committed suicide. Pink asked if there were any signs of murder.

image

WonBin figures out that the wife was having an affair with the PD. From that couple, they learn that Chef was gay and the other chefs were his type. From sous chef they learn that Chef had lost his sense of taste and she blackmailed him into giving her a position he had promised to his lover.

image

The sous chef is a strong suspect but the case isn’t over yet so Pink has to turn in his badge. Another team is taking over the their team is being disbanded. Some of them think it’s a good idea but EunJi goes to find JunHyuk. She knew he would be at Pink’s orphanage because he is a good person.

image

At the orphanage EunJi and JunHyuk learn about Pink. His mother died and he was abandoned by his father. He was wearing a pink sweater, knitted by his deceased mother and that became his security blanket. After a couple of failed adoptions, Pink hardened his heart. But after protecting a brother orphan he opened it again and became like a father to the others. He thought he had to protect them all. The pork rib restaurant owner was one of his orphan brothers and he was heartbroken at the suicide caused by Chef’s slander.

image

JunHyuk goes to YuRa’s house to ask for a favor. She doesn’t want to see him because he said there was bad karma between her and her fiancé. He offers to do an exorcism to get rid of the bad karma. It works and the team is saved.

image

The second poison victim is being released and EunJi goes to the hospital to apologize. EunJi sniffs the smell of charcoal and asks. The patient had been taking charcoal pills to purify his blood. Everything she smells is a clue.

image

EunJi tells the ITeam about the charcoal. JunHyuk remembers that activated charcoal detoxifies chemicals. Both victims ate the same poison but only one died. The other was taking charcoal pills.

image

The ITeam goes to the restaurant and taunts the killer into confessing. Michael’s Fish was really his recipe and Chef had stolen it. Chef promised the head chef position to anyone who could duplicate it. But he gave the position to the sous chef because she threatened to expose his loss of taste.

image

Killer will get his name on his recipe but probably won’t hear about it until he is in prison. And Pink finally gets out of jail.

image

Pink was so frustrated that he wanted to dance and sing A-Pink’s song “No No No”. But he was afraid people would see it on CCTV and think he is crazy.

image

They look at the CCTV footage again and find in Morse Code: “Mole” Viki
