Aaaand we have
I got the biggest kick of the night out of Eric's company name (through which he bought Sookie's house). I can't help but think that the writers were fucking with Alexander Skarsgård by naming the company AIK, which is the name of my home town football (soccer for you heathens) club. Because it's also the arch rival of Skarsgård's club (I first thought Djurgården, but I looked it up and it turns out he's a Bajen supporter. Yes, Stockholm has three teams and we all hate each other's guts. =).
Haha, I hope they bring it up often this season.
I am seriously obsessed with City Hunter, checking the Tumblr tag several times a day. I'm even to the point where I rewatch and notice things that make me want to write meta. Meta! About a kdrama! I don't even know, you guys, how come this drama is so GOOD?
Of course, I forget everything I want to say if I don't write it down immediately. The only two things I do remember:
First: They keep bringing up Kim Na Na's earring. I was so sure it would lead to her discovering the City Hunter's identity, but not so much, so WTF, y'all? Considering how many episodes apart the mentions were (light years in kdrama time), I can't imagine it not being planned.
Second: The way they keep harping on death and dying and NO ONE CAN KNOW YOUR IDENTITY and bloodshed, blah, blah, blah makes me seriously think they will end up killing someone (besides dear old mom, that is. She's a gonner for sure. After a tearful reunion where all misunderstandings are cleared away, naturally.). I can almost deal with ahjusshi dying, but if they kill Yoon Sung or Na Na, I WILL RAIN DOWN HELL UPON THEM. Do. Not. Do. That.
In other news, I'm so glad Na Na figured it out. Great female kdrama character or GREATEST FEMALE KDRAMA CHARACTER? (Actually, Cha Song Joo from Capital Scandal is still the greatest, but of the leads Kim Na Na is right up there.)
Oh, also, I made the Tumblr thingy I made last week into a wallpaper for myself if anyone wants:
Lie to Me
I didn't have as much of a problem with last week's episodes as I thought I might, because most of it was lots and lots of OTP time (ALWAYS A GOOD TIME!), but the ending felt forced and stupid. Why do you have to bring the angst when it's so stupidly done? If there was actually a point to it, like earlier in the season when Ki Joon went back to Yoon Joo, it feels earned. This? This just felt moronic and forced and oh, did I mention STUPID?
Okay, I guess, but I never really loved it and thought it was annoying and boring at times. I guess it's something to watch if you have nothing better to do?
This drama just gets more and more bizarre. I don't even know what to think anymore. I'll keep watching, but the only thing that really works for the show (the two leads) are getting less and less screentime as ever more stupid stuff happens with the lottery ticket plotline. Meh.
I think my reaction to this drama can best be summed up in my profound disappointment when I reached the end of episode 16 and realized, hey, that's probably not the final episode. Up until then it was just something to distract myself with while waiting for City Hunter, but now I'm almost offended that it didn't end there, since I found it so meh.
And you know what else offends me? That this is apparently getting higher ratings than City Hunter. Just...WHAT? I guess it just goes to show that television audiences are the same the world over - they all suck.
