As a man runs down the street and races up the steps to the courthouse, she lets out a laugh that grows crazed, and then she finally speaks: The guard asks his relationship to the person, and we cut back to Jang-mi: She goes totally overboard, with heart-shaped balloons, rose petals, too many candles to count, and the perfect outfit for her perfect day. This is going to be so disastrous. After a procedure, he finally answers and sounds annoyed, but promises to be there. He arrives in the hotel lobby, and says into his phone that a strange woman is waving at him.

Review: Suspicious Partner

March 5 – April 24, Runtime: Even though he comes from a rich family, his mother had an affair with a married man and they had Ji-Hoon. From a young age, he became separated from his mother and began to live with his father’s family. One day, he learns that his mother has a liver disease and she doesn’t have much time left to live. Her only hope is to get a liver transplant. Hye-Soo has lived alone with her daughter Eun-Sung after her husband’s death.

THE SHORT VERDICT: Suspicious Partner is what I would call a reasonably successful blend of crime and romance – a rarity in dramaland, from my personal findings. Great lead actors, excellent OTP chemistry, a quirky supporting cast, and a compellingly delivered Big Bad all come together to make this a solid drama, despite Show sagging.

Lie to Me Episode 8 Recap Posted on by ockoala Just a word of warning for you guys — for the last 10 minutes of episode 8 of Lie to Me, I just sat there and sobbed. Today we got a major game-changer, and a huge course-correction. As much as I worship their writing and always love to bounce thoughts off them, and I welcome DB-ers who want to come play here, it really hurt me to hear them criticized for that decision.

DB is their blog, and the recaps their labor of love. So try to be thoughtful and considerate of what they do, and chill it over there. When I almost dropped My Princess and 49 Days, I got considerable hate comments, mostly wondering if I have any taste in dramas. I may not have good taste, but no one can dictate my decisions to write about what moves me.

Same goes for the ladies at DB.

Bride of the Century Episode 6 Recap

And our hero has to decide whether to be a hero, or do his job. Yoo-bum is happy to oblige and notes that the main character—a murderer—is a writer and professor just like Professor Moon. Hong-joo was there with a camera crew to interview him about his plans to donate all the profits to scholarships for aspiring writers.

TT Aug 13 am I wish I made a commented this back when this was releasing, but I greatly recommend this drama. This drama breaks a lot of romance tropes common in normal kdramas. The big thing for me is that this is rarely a “manly dude” and “helpless .

Dec 23 1: I found episode 15 sad and actually cried watching it; but at the same time I found parts of it so funny. I love the parts with Pedro and Sun-Nyeo: I’ve been waiting for PTY to finally figure out why he was doing what he was to Ki-Young – idiot, you love her and don’t know how to deal with it. Ugh, how is this show going to end. I’m hoping PTY kicks his wife to the curb and ends up with the person he’s been in love with for a lot longer than he’d admit.

Please end this drama is a good way, I don’t think my heart can take it any more. Dec 22 He has to stand up to them, cut off all ties, find a job to support ki young and dan. I mean, he loves her, and all he wants is for ki young to love him. Screw the parents, they’re cruel and mean. If they just agreed to the marriage in the first place there wouldn’t be a problem.

Completely biased reviews and fangirling Review: Suspicious Partner is what I would call a reasonably successful blend of crime and romance — a rarity in dramaland, from my personal findings. Great lead actors, excellent OTP chemistry, a quirky supporting cast, and a compellingly delivered Big Bad all come together to make this a solid drama, despite Show sagging somewhat in its later episodes. Perhaps most importantly of all, Show ends on a satisfying note — another rarity in recent dramaland history again, from my personal findings , and therefore a plus point not to be taken lightly in my books.

Overall, a pretty engaging and rewarding watch. Generally, I find these to be unnatural and uneasy bedfellows, and my own attempts at watching such shows have turned out more misses than hits. Instead, I actually felt engaged. Which is a very good thing indeed. When Ji Wook glowers fiercely and growls at people to get lost, he reminds me of Badass Healer. Both very good things indeed, in my books. Ji Chang Wook does a fantastic job making Ji Wook a different and separate character, and I found a lot to enjoy in Ji Wook, whom I found to be quite adorkable, with his prickly outer shell and his marshmallow underbelly.

Often, I felt like he communicated so much, without having to say anything at all. All of that is so evident, without him having to say a word.

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. Ki-tae turns and walks away, leaving Jang-mi alone at the altar. While they talk, Ki-tae accidentally finds the envelope of postcards from Dad and swipes them. Ki-tae suggests they go see her father, since they now have his address.

Finally he pulls over at a rest stop also against her wishes and orders lunch, saying he needs energy to endure her while she takes her upset out on him. He finally gets Jang-mi to eat by saying they can leave as soon as the food is gone. Jang-mi asks why Ki-tae went to see her mom in the first place, and he says he was jealous that she was getting so much affection from his mother and he wanted the same from her mom.

But Ki-tae is sure her parents will make up, and even bets on it: If her parents get back together, Jang-mi has to marry him. I love his reasoning, that if the worst marriage she knows can work out, then surely theirs will too. He reclaims them and they adorably tickle-hug-wrestle for possession of the envelope.

A passing fisherman picks up the envelope when Ki-tae drops it, and says he knows the man who wrote it, and that he was heading to Seoul today to close his chicken restaurant.

Mar 10,  · I said in episode 1 of Bride of the Century that leading lady Yang Jin Sung was doing a decent job playing two characters, the optimistic and caring Doo Rim and the self-absorbed and haughty Yi Kyung. That opinion really needs to be dialed up a notch after episode 6 ushered in way more Yi Kyung than I can stomach but allowed for a side-by-side comparison of the two characters.

Bride of the Century Episode 6 Recap Posted on by ockoala I said in episode 1 of Bride of the Century that leading lady Yang Jin Sung was doing a decent job playing two characters, the optimistic and caring Doo Rim and the self-absorbed and haughty Yi Kyung. That opinion really needs to be dialed up a notch after episode 6 ushered in way more Yi Kyung than I can stomach but allowed for a side-by-side comparison of the two characters. Episode 6 unexpectedly brought Yi Kyung back to the fold, allowing the story to take another turn by ending the Doo Rim charade for now.

Our favorite matchmaking ghost was missing in episode 5 but makes a very important return in episode 6 to both point Doo Rim back in the right direction as well as lend her helping hand to Kang Joo. Doo Rim walks out on stage and looks very hesitant. She sits down on the bench and pauses for a long time before suddenly starting to play beautifully. Roo Mi stares in shock that her plan was foiled.
