Blade Man ♥ Recap 03

image

Chang comes when SeDong calls but is frightened by his HongBin. So she takes Chang into the house to calm down. She warns HB not to startle him.

image

Chang answers HongBin’s questions the way TaeHee would have. HB flashes back to a happier time when they talked about naming their first child Chang “because I can see myself in your eyes.”

image

Chang says his mother died but HongBin doesn’t believe it. He tells SecGo to spare no expense in finding her.

image

Chang refuses to eat or sleep. In fact, when he is forced to eat he throws it up. This goes on until he has to be hospitalized.

image

In the hospital Chang keeps asking for SeDong so they call her. She works her magic and he is better in no time. HongBin tries to hire her as a babysitter but that’s not her dream. Besides that, she detests people who can’t say “Please” or “Thank you” and she has a job lined up for her team.

image

SeDong forgets her bag and when she goes back the alarm goes off. HongBin threatens to have her arrested as a thief if she refuses to babysit. She calls the police and threatens to have him arrested for harassment if he doesn’t apologize. He finally apologizes reluctantly and angrily (probably for the first time in his life).  She doesn’t think he is sincere but lets him off for effort. Butler Yoon faints and a maid gets teary eyed.

image

As HongBin considers the events of the day he ends up breaking into laughter. It’s embarrassing so he hides under the covers and continues laughing.

image

SeDong’s team shows up for work but the company has closed down. They were hired as a last ditch effort to improve production but they couldn’t stop the bankruptcy. They go home dejected but don’t lose hope.

image

SeDong goes back to Negotiate with HongBin for her team. He meets her at the gym to press a point. Babysitting isn’t her dream but she could spend evenings and weekends with Chang. She is ashamed to use Chang like that but her dream is to develop the funnest game in the world. They get hired.

image

SeDong and HongBin take Chang to an amusement park. Chang has fun with her but is afraid to talk to his father. Before they can get Chang to open up, HB gets a call. The woman who brought Chang to Korea wants to get paid.

image

Bad dad pays mystery woman and tells HongBin that TaeHee told the woman to bring Chang to Korea and get paid. HB refuses to believe that TaeHee is dead and manifests his rage in front of bad dad. Bad dad faints. DramaFever

Blade Man ♥ Recap 02

image

HongBin saturates himself with SeDong’s essence while she carries Chang inside and deposits him on a mat. She plans to go back out but Chang holds onto her leg. So she talks to HongBin through the window.

image

HongBin establishes his seniority with SeDong and demands to know why she wanted to see him. She asks for Monstro (the game her team developed) since their representative sold it behind her back. He closes his eyes and breathes her essence again and she calls him a pervert and slams the shutter on his face. 

image

Chang begs SeDong to let him stay with her. He can run errands, do the laundry, and help around the house. He even offers her money. She doesn’t want to send him away either but they have to go by procedure.

image

SeDong’s minions got drunk and painted some graffiti on HongBin’s wall. The caption says “Thief’s house.” But HongBin is more curious about Chang. He thought SeDong was single. SecGo says the child isn’t hers.

image

The minions are arrested for the graffiti and have to pay $100,000 before being released. The stones have to be imported and replaced. They made a lot of mistakes after drinking but she tells them not to worry; she will take care of it.

image

Chang and SeDong exchange treasures and he promises to marry her. His mom told him if he met a girl he liked almost as much as Mom he should marry her.

image

SeDong tries to reason with HongBin but he is unreasonable. The wall can be cleaned with Joy but he is still angry about her slamming the shutter on his face. He makes a lot of false assumptions about her and she asks him to be quiet for a minute. He complies and sets a timer. She asks if her team can complete the Monstro game they created. They will even do it without pay but they want the copyright. He denies her request. She tells him to have breakfast.

image

Next place they see each other is at the police station. HongBin’s brother, HongJoo, was arrested for fighting. His friends didn’t believe HB was his brother. At first HB says he doesn’t have a brother. But when bad dad shows up, HB defends HJ. What does a person have to do to be worthwhile? Bad dad considers his wife and both sons worthless because they don’t walk in his light. One son makes worthless games and the other son plays them. HongBin has another destructive episode, faints, and his nose gets sensitive again.

image

After HongBin denies that he has a brother at the police station, HongJoo doesn’t respond when he sees him later. Butler finally remembers to tell SecGo about the phone calls from the mysterious woman who brought Chang to Korea. But he doesn’t remember the most important detail. Chang is Kim TaeHee’s child. HongBin doesn’t want to hear about it until he has details.

image

When he finally remembers the details they go to the police station to find out more. There they learn that the woman brought Kim Tae Hee’s son to Korea and the child has been put in foster care because he wouldn’t stop crying.

image

Chang’s foster parent turns out to be SeDong. He kept crying for her and she needed the money for her minion’s surgery. They go shopping together but when he sees the police car coming to get him he runs and hides.

image

It doesn’t take long to locate Chang since he is sitting with his hands over his ears and his eyes tightly shut singing “Rain rain go away. Come again another day.” And HongBin flashes back to a time he spent with TaeHee. DramaFever

Blade Man ♥ Recap 01

image

A drama that makes me laugh is a treasure and Blade Man makes me laugh a lot. In fact I laugh every time I think about it. It seems to be a parody of “X-Men" with a little "Avengers" mixed in and I suspect it will appeal to a select few. Hong Bin is the CEO of Global Games. He is full of rage and when he gets angry all hell breaks loose. The weather changes to thunderstorms, there are power blackouts, and blades sprout from his upper body like a porcupine with which he does major damage to trees, buildings, and anything else that gets in his way before he passes out. And it’s all because of a lost love. (His father interfered.)

image

The drama starts out with ominous music, stormy weather, various objects being slashed or broken, and the chief housekeeper, Butler Yoon, bemoaning her difficult life. The master has started with his episodes again.

image

Housekeeper pushes her way past Secretary Go to announce breakfast. Since HongBin gets angry whether or not she she tells him, it’s better to let him know. It seems that he experiences the world mostly through his nose so he sniffs the air and confronts her with everything they have prepared; and the marmalade in the fridge has gone bad. She checks the marmalade and it is bad.

image

HongBin leafs through his clothes trying to find something to wear that doesn’t smell like detergent. Then he tells SecGo to change his fragrance because it smells like spit. But why has his nose gotten so sensitive lately?

image

At work, HongBin severely damages a couple of employees and a lot of equipment because video game sales have gone down. Outside, SecGo calmly orders new supplies including laptops and chairs to replace the broken ones.

image

On the way to somewhere he kicks out his driver and secretary because they have the same fragrance that smells like spit. It’s not the first time he did something like that. While he is driving, the report of last night’s devastation comes on the radio. Apparently the same thing happened recently on a rainy night. It’s not clear if HongBin is aware that he did it. He mentions having nightmares and SecGo always gets him home in bed before he wakes up.

image

Meanwhile our heroine, SeDong, is being harassed by her landlord for living with a bunch of guys. They hide and she denies it but they get caught in the end. Turns out the group comprises a company of video game creators.

image

One of the guys get stuck under the sink and it takes all of them to pull him out. Somehow this results in a herniated disc and he has to be hospitalized.

image

In the same hospital, HongBin is compensating his damaged employees with money and promotions. Their scent nauseates him but he soon catches a different scent and follows it to SeDong.

image

For HongBin, the smell of SeDong’s breath is reminiscent of peaceful music, fresh fruit, and beautiful flowers. It’s the familiar scent of his lost love and he flashes back to the good times they spent together.

image

Turns out that SeDong’s partner sold the company to Global Games. without consulting her and is on his way to America. SeDong isn’t taking it sitting down and determines to get their game (Monstro) back before it is released to the public. SungHwan tells her that the CEO is the worst of the worst. In fact there are no pictures of him on the Internet because he looks like the devil. HongBin calls SecGo and asks if he really looks like the devil?

image

HongBin is determined to get back to Global Games before SeDong gets there. But on the way he runs into his bad dad (literally). Bad dad wants an apology and HongBin gets so angry that the weather starts to change.

image

SecGo picks HB up and carries him to a gym so he can vent his anger before a full fledged storm breaks out. He beats on SecGo until reminded that SeDong is coming to the office. Then he beats him a little more for good measure. (SecGo seems to have a supernatural pain tolerance.)

image

When they finally get to Global Games, SeDong isn’t there. She took a detour to try and stop the betrayer from leaving the country. Betrayer hides in the men’s restroom. HongBin calls him and betrayer reminds HB that he refused to hire the team when he bought the company. But other forces are at work.

image

A little boy is brought into the airport by a mysterious woman. She sends him into the men’s restroom and is chased by some suspicious men. One of them stumbles into SeDong and is arrested for sexual harassment. Turns out he was on the wanted list for threats and blackmail. The woman goes into hiding and the little boy is taken to the police station.

image

The little boy is afraid of the police because police were there when he lost his mother. The only one that can calm him is SeDong so she ends up taking him home with her until they can find his parents.

image

HongBin reflects on happier times with TaeHee and his father who put an end to it. This results in another episode of thunderstorms, power outs, and random destruction. HB passes out and SecGo carries him back to his bed.

image

Turns out the boy is a result of the love between HongBin and TaeHee and the woman is trying to contact him. But Butler Yoon is afraid to wake him.

image

SecGo stands over HongBin until he wakes up and tells him where to find SeDong. When she arrived with the boy HB is waiting and becomes intoxicated on the fragrance of her breath once again. DramaFever

High School Love-On ♥ Recap O8

image

Angel renews her vows and only has a week to say goodbye before returning to angelhood. Reaper congratulates her on the unselfish choice.

image

Her friend tries to tell Angel about the frame-up but Angel is more interested in the book Friend was reading. What happen to the angel who became human? After saving the human she loved she returned to being and angel.

image

Angel apologizes to the class for causing trouble and to Bullie for bringing out the worst in her. Of course it’s all taken wrong and even when the teachers know the truth they don’t do anything about it. They attribute their bully tolerance to the law of the jungle. Only the strong survive.

image

With new found confidence, Angel faces off the bullies and even stands between them and SungYul. She warns them that she won’t put up with it if they fool with the people she likes. They scoff. Does she have super powers? She tells SY that she is thankful and indebted to him for all the things he’s done. But he did it because he likes her not to make her feel indebted. She asks him to be a true friend to WuHyun and stay by his side. He always gets in trouble when he is with her and there is nothing she can do for him.

image

Gram tries once again to get WuHyun’s mother to look after him and even threatens to tell her new husband and son. But the witch refuses to take responsibility. Even when someone recognizes her at Gram’s funeral she denies that she is his mother. Cop dad notices but doesn’t take it seriously.

image

Gram sits WuHyun down and gives him the money she saved for his future including tuition, apartment rent, and even for his marriage. She even sold the restaurant and says she is finally retiring. He thinks her retiring is a good idea but doesn’t understand why she is giving him the money now.

image

Then she puts the house in order and gives Angel her ddeokbukki recipe. Her secret to good cooking is to think of the eater while she is making it.

image

The three of them go on a picnic with matching t-shirts. And while YuHyun and Angel are playing around, Gram collapses. They call 911 and she is taken to the hospital. It’s the first time WuHyun realizes she is really sick.

image

By the time Gram finally came to the hospital, her cancer was in the last stages. She asks WuHyun to go home and get the bag she had packed and while he is gone, she takes her last breath. On top of that, WuHyun overhears Angel talking about leaving. He tells her to go then but she still has 4 days left.

image

Reaper lets Gram stay a little longer so she and WuHyun can say their goodbyes. And Angel’s time is up. So she tells SungYul she has to go back but he doesn’t understand. She offers her hand and he pulls her in for a hug. WuHyun sees and turns away. Then he asks why she hasn’t gone yet.

image

WuHyun and Gram continue their conversation at the gravesite and Gram says she is leaving WH in Angel’s care so she should look after him. Reaper escorts Gram out first and then returns for Angel. Viki

It’s Okay ♥ That’s Love ♥ Spoiler

image

It’s Okay That’s Love turned out to be one of my favorite dramas of the season. The characters were cute, warm, and relatable even though the cases were extreme. The setting was a sanitarium and all the characters had mental and emotional problems. But honestly, I like to see abusive people get what they deserve and I never once felt that the imprisoned brother didn’t deserve it, even though he wasn’t the one who killed his abusive stepfather.

image

JaeBeom was just as abusive as his stepfather. But 14 years in prison is rather extreme and JB spent the entire time plotting revenge on JY who pointed him out as the murderer to protect his mom. JB probably would have gotten out sooner if he didn’t keep attacking JayYeol. One of the attacks resulted in JY becoming schizophrenic. But both brothers got treatment and the family was reunited.

image

JaeYeol finally accepted the fact that GangWoo wasn’t real. The contradiction was in the wounds on his feet. No matter where or when GW appeared his feet never changed. So JY washed GW’s feet and gave him the shoes that HaeSoo bought. He thanked GW for helping him through a very difficult time in his life and confessed that he was always afraid of his stepfather and brother even though he didn’t show it. But it broke JY’s heart to let go of his illusion.

image

Her mom insisted that HaeSoo go away for a year while JaeYeol got treatment but their love never diminished. JaeYeol and HaeSoo got married when she returned. Soon she was pregnant and not so happy about that because of her career. But JaeYeol was overjoyed and couldn’t wait to brag about it.

image

KwangSoo was adorable with his new girlfriend and JaeYeol got back to writing and broadcasting. No matter how bad things get there is always hope. Viki

Happy Endings? Sept 2014

image

Marriage Not Dating wraps up in a satisfying and poetic way, bringing us back full circle to remind us why we’ve all loved this couple so much. They stay true to themselves as the show manages to tie up all the loose ends nicely, leaving me feeling like everyone gets the ending they deserve. It’s definitely made its mark as a memorable and wonderfully fun drama, and I know I’ll miss Ki-tae and Jang-mi and their crazy, messed-up families very much. (DramaBeans)

image

JangMi’s parents get back together. KiTae’s mom kicks out her cheating husband and takes everything. (Cheating husband gets his mistress.) SeA gets her wish for a child but with Julian instead of KiTae. Yeo-Reum and JangMi part ways and split the business money. So it’s happy endings all around. Viki

image

Fated To Love You was like a ray of sunshine on dramaland’s darkest day. It was the drama that reminded us why we started watching dramas, with a crack factor through the roof, witty writing, and sparkling chemistry between two leads who could not have been more perfectly cast.” DramaBeans Grandma’s minions drug Gun and MiYoung on their first honeymoon night so that they wouldn’t wait to get pregnant and they can’t remember anything. But soon they have a romantic candlelit honeymoon night to remember. Viki

image

One or the other night results in twins and they make a storybook about their romance. Gun is a great dad just like his father.
…And he pulls out a hand-drawn, hand-written book called “Princess Snail.” It’s the story of a princess who wore round glasses like their mother, and who was bad at studying.
   The story goes on to say that the princess had an illness making her incapable of refusing a stranger’s request, as well as being incapable of abandoning anyone. In fact, as he tells them, she didn’t even know she was a princess, and thought she was a maid.
   Then Gun tells of the rude prince from a neighboring land who called the princess “Snail,” and, living up to her namesake, the princess crept into his life and heart. The prince fell in love with the princess, and suffered an illness where he couldn’t live without her. DramaBeans

image

Gun’s ex turns out to be Daniel’s lost sister and they are finally reunited. All of the tests for Gun’s genetic disease come out negative and DocOct predicts a healthy future. DocOct starts a courtship with MiYoung’s mom. And Dragon’s flame turns out to be rich so Mistress Mom wants to hurry the wedding.

image

In Joseon Gunman, nearly everyone dies in the end for pointless politics. But the 2 main characters survive their gunshots to continue their fight for justice.

High School Love-On ♥ Recap O7

image

This will be a short recap because it’s mostly about mass bullying. Angel and WHyun are happily reconsidering their relationship, and she is trying to choose between loving a human and going back to being an angel. But there are several happenings that strongly influence her decision.

image

Because of jealousy and hatred, the bullies unite to bring Angel down. They frame her for stealing. The teachers believe the planted evidence and WHyun doesn’t know what to believe. Only Umbrella doesn’t waver. Angel is willing to take the injustice but not WHyun’s distrust. Now she understands what it feels like to be a heroine in a drama.

image

Even Gram notices the change in Angel. She is being cold to WHyun and doesn’t have an appetite. Whyun isn’t telling anything either. Gram keeps trying to get in touch with WHyun’s father but he isn’t available. She turns to his mother but the witch refuses to take responsibility for WHyun.

image

The bullies ask why Umbrella only cares about Angel? It’s because she is completely different from them. Everything they do drives the guys farther away.

image

The entire class unites against Angel and WHyun tries to get her to go home. Staying won’t solve anything but running won’t either. It’s only hard because he doesn’t believe her. Unbrella tells him that Angel is only targeted because Bullie likes WHyun and Bully hates him. It’s going to get worse.

image

Angel is under attack and WHyun come to the rescue. The physical abuse accelerates as verbal abuse continues and WHyun loses it. He beats the bully until Umbrella pulls him off and the teacher comes in.

image

Guardians are called in and, of course, the judgment goes in favor of the money. WHyun is given community service and Bully gets off free. Umbrella hits Bully again for good measure and says money is all Bully has to boast about.

image

Angel crashes the meeting and takes the blame. She was being accused and bullied. WHyun and Umbrella tried to protect her and ended up fighting the bully. Umbrella says Bully deserved to be hit and he would have done it if WHyun hadn’t. Bully’s father is embarrassed and excuses himself.

image

Reaper asks Angel if she truly realizes how much trouble she is causing WHyun by being there. Love changes because of trouble and if she stays, neither she nor WHyun will be happy. So she chooses to go back. Viki
