No drunk kiss in Weightlifting Fairy Bok Joo Episode 9

Well, that title was a spoiler. Ha!

Anyway, I’m just disappointed there wasn’t any kiss from Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) and Joon Hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk) although we get to see a lot of cute moments between the two in Episode 9.

If you don’t want to be spoiled further, then stop because I’ll be discussing some events in episodes 9 and a little of 10.

Recap: Career Episode 2

Back to my recap of Career! It took me more than a month to get back to watching this. But I couldn’t just let it finish because it’s my Chiaki-senpai, you know? Hehe. (Tamaki Hiroshi played Chiaki in Nodame Cantabile live action back in 2006)

Anyway, it’s another case this time around (if you’re familiar with police dramas, they tackle one case per episode), and Tamaki Hiroshi sure can’t help himself but play detective once again.

If this is your first time reading about Career, the story is about Tamaki Hiroshi’s police division and the crimes they deal with. Tamaki Hiroshi is the section chief but he prefers helping out (or annoying, actually) investigators in solving crimes rather than sitting in his room and signing paperworks.

So, let’s get on with the recap!

Recap: Yuri on Ice Episode 3

I’m waaaaaay behind Yuri on Ice so I’m doing a marathon of the series this week. I’m actually amazed by the routines in featured in this anime despite not being a ballet dancer or an ice skater.

We finally get to see the face-off between the two Yuris and we instantly see improvements in their movements after one or two episodes.

I’m excited for the Grand Prix Final but let’s get a start on this first, shall we?

Recap: Yuri on Ice Episode 2

Hello! I’m back with a recap of Yuri on Ice and I must say I’m excited to see Yuri regain his confidence and get back on the rink!

I want to see how Viktor and the Russian Yuri will be able to push and inspire our lead, Yuri, in his quest to return to the Grand Prix. Although his dream is to compete with his idol turned coach, Victor.

Let’s get to it!

Recap: The K2 Episode 16 (END)

Sorry it took me a while just to watch The K2’s last episode. I really feel sad that this is the last one and I don’t know how long I’ll feel empty inside. Ha!

I’m not kidding. There’s always this empty feeling inside whenever a drama I’m watching ends, and it’s even sadder when I have come to love that drama.

Anyway, I only have praises for Yoona, Ji Chang Wook, Song Yun Ah, and Cho Seong Ha for their superb acting and delivery of their characters.

Cheers to the writer and director, too, for giving us such a well-written story, and while I don’t like the shots taken while the camera is on the move, it has conveyed what it probably want to: that those scenes were full of action.

I would recommend this drama to anyone and it’s definitely a nice break from romcoms. So without further delay, here’s the recap~

Recap: The K2 Episode 15

An intense and action-filled episode which reveals where our leads and second leads' loyalties lie. 

Je Ha (Ji Chang Wook), of course and not surprisingly, remains as Anna's (Yoona) knight in shining armor, while Se Joon (Cho Seong Ha) is cornered into choosing between his career and his daughter.

Siblings Yoo Jin (Song Yun Ah) and Sung Wan (Lee Jung Jin) continue to fight over the JB Group and Yoo Jin's massive intel stored in Cloud Nine, while Park Kwan Soo (Kim Kap Soo) is just interested to get his hands on the memory card containing his misdeeds in Iraq.

Let's get on with it, shall we?

Recap: The K2 Episode 14

I wasn't really feeling this episode because it looks like a setup for bigger things for the last two episodes. 

We get to see how much Anna and Yoo Jin love Je Ha, and we also see where Je Ha's loyalty lies.

Choi Sung Won tries to hit back at Yoo Jin after a massive loss in the previous episode so get ready because the last week will be full of action and sibling rivalry.
