I know I’m super late, and I’m sorry! Lot’s of school work, that’s starting to bog me down, but I’ll try my hardest to keep the recaps coming as soon as I can. Thanks to everyone, who’s had the patience of putting up with me, hopefully the last two recaps will be worth it ^_^
As per usual, articles it is.
Like I mentioned in my last post, Jo Yoon Hee did an interview with Newsis, that played a little pun on the title of the drama, ‘the perfect you’. Well given her sweet persona, she has been pretty much the ‘it’ girl for the past year, but she’s not just a good looking actress, she’s also been donned the title ‘stray dog eonni’, due to her love for animals. She’s actually quite the animal pro activist, other than Lee Hyori. She’s been busy raising awareness for proper practice of using animal testing in the make up industry.
In the interview, she also explained, that there are many more people who do work for raising awareness. However she’s humbled that everyone thinks so greatly of her voluntary work, but there are many people who do this work, and don’t get acknowledged. The only reason she’s being acknowledged at the moment, is due to her current popularity. That sounds a lot like Yi Sook, and I’m glad she’s using her fame for a good cause 🙂
She went on to talk about the way her love for animals grew first when she got started in 2010, after her pet dog passed away, she even shed tears, and thus her love for animals proceeded into something bigger through her work and spreading the message. When asked what was her favourite breed, she simply replied she thought all were beautiful.
The article finally goes on to talk about the drama, and her charms as Yi Sook, and her turn of character with her role in ‘Co-conspirators’. Her response to being given such a charming title, was modest when she replied, there’s many more things I need to do to become such a well received person. Although she’s done a lot of work for animals, she believes, she ought to work for people as well, and promised to work even harder for the future.
She’s scheduled to make an appearance on MBC TV’s ‘코이카의 꿈’ (Ko Yi Ka Wi Kkum) on the 4th of October episode.
Lee Hee Joon also made an appearance on the 18th episode of Seung Seung Jang Goo (승승장구). Although he’s said to have been acting for about thirteen years, this would be his first appearance on a talk show. Naturally he provided a little anecdote; he moved recently from his basement room, that barely let in a wisp of sunlight (Jesus 0_0 was he broke or what?) but now that he’s living the life of a popular actor, the sun is shining (it damn well should be-he deserves it) and when it does beam through his windows, he’s managed to end up tanning himself a little, going for the red. This just makes me smile, for someone who has worked all the way from the bottom, these kind of stories make him so much more relatable.
As much as he has that loveable, laughable personality that resembles his character, he was also once the dating king back in University, which surprised much of the audience. ‘I wasn’t much of a kkotminam (flowerboy), so at first glance girls would just pass me off. But once they saw me a few times, they would come to like me.’ Here I was thinking he was a lot more similar to Jae Yong, that’s not to say, that he isn’t full of dedication and sincerity when it comes to his work. The article finishes off with Hee Joon, being grateful with all the time he gets to spend doing what he loves and interacting with his audience, and encouraged those with the same dream that all, thirteen years were worth it.
Okie doke! I think I’ll have the entire OST memorised by the time I complete recapping this series.
Yoon Hee stands, agaped at the treatment that Ji Hwan is being given purely because he can’t speak. Mama bear strikes out, and she yells ‘ahjumma! What the freaking hell do you think you’re doing?!’ Purple ahjumma turns around, her face grouchy, and pissed at being called at, she asks, Yoon Hee who she is. This is one of those moment we’ve been waiting for. ‘I’m his mom’. Yayyyyyy!!!! I love happy endings, and you know this going to be one of them.
Purple ahjumma is finally scared away, with her son, with their fake philanthropy. Once they’ve settled everything with the orphanage and made sure Ji Hwan is away and safe. The couple take a break, in a local open area. It’s time for big decisions.
Okay so I was talking to my friend the other day, and he said, he actually found Soon Ae annoying…so is it just me? I love her dorkibility, as she ropes in Halmeoni in her food antics. Soon Ae complains to Chung Ae that Yoon Hee’s matchstick figure is because they hardly eat. Then again, her idea of ‘light’ breakfast, is like 5 pieces of toast. Chung Ae looks at her with contempt, not only does she find her ridiculous but wants her out of Gwi Nam’s house.
Yep, yep, I know…ahhhhhhhhhhh fan girl moment! Their chemistry and acting skills are undeniable, and yes I do secretly wish they would date in real, but we know that’s not going to happen. So there’s going to be a proposal at the restaurant, and the staff are in prep mode.
Last episode we saw these guys take that step forward into the land of awkward, and now we see them pay their due. Il Sook stares back in the mirror, ‘crap crap crap, I can’t face him’. She’s off, and pretending like nothing has happened.
Another switch, and we find ourselves with the most humble family on earth. Go Ok prepares a doshirak for Jung Bae, who is till unaware that his wife knows of his having lost his job. As he walks out, he meets Yoon Bin and Il Sook, who ask if he has found any new tenants, for the rooftop apartment. Il Sook tells him, she had asked aunt to relay the message, but she assumes Go Ok must have forgotten.
Woman power! FTW! Can you blame me?
Yoon Hee announces her decision to adopt Ji Hwan (funny how the first question she’s asked is ‘is it because you can’t get pregnant?’ What now only Angelina Jolie is allowed to adopt or something?) to her colleagues/friends, and asks a favour of them.
No one’s really looking forward, in the tough world where your own work load is enough for two, adjusting a schedule to help someone out, be it may, is still not an easy task.
Can I call them the Bill couple?…Yoon Bin and Il Sook are out checking the new apartment, one problem. There’s only one room. He suggests, that he’s getting older, and someday he’ll want to marry, so he would need another room. That catches her off guard, and she stutters ‘you’re getting married?’ They’re both awkward, and he offers, that, ‘you never know, not today, but someday he wants marriage.’
We’re back, or she’s back, and she busy dancing to the latest trend, yep, Gangnam Style.
Caught between a rock and a hard place is what I call it.
These two are determined to find a way together, except their logic is a little…Yoon Hee suggests, that if their love is never ending as they like to think, then they should be able to keep their feelings intact for another two years, hence if it does last, it’s fine for them to be married. But since Se Gwang is off to the army, it makes no sense for the two to be married. Young love, what to do…
My favourite couple are back! So he’s doing the regular check list with the staff, and Yi Sook’s the last name, as if it’s just another chore, he keeps his head down, and pops the question, ‘Will you marry me?’ I didn’t see this one coming while I was watching, so even I was taken a back. Hard to say what a regular person would do, it sure is unique, but in front of the entire staff, I guess something like that should be more private, specially so since their relationship is so rocky.
The two older love birds have their moments as well, as they come to terms with the idea of adoption. In the mean time, Se Gwang is having no luck in getting his marriage approved.
Yang Shil has finally found solace, she might be living alone, but it’s less burdensome. When it’s time to rejoin family, maybe time itself will have wrapped those earlier wounds up, so it won’t be hard to go home. For now though, she’s happy in the simple life she’s chosen for herself.
Dead man walking. That’s what Jae Yong looks like. He’s beyond the level of besotted, he’s a man in love. Some would say that’s the same thing :p Btw, anyone know what his cute sidekick’s name is?
It’s dinner time, and the entire family is gathered. Even Yoon Bin’s there, he may not be officially a man of the Bang family, but patience is a virtue, and this is probably one in many meals he’ll be sharing in the household.
