This Week’s Wrap Up: Nov 25-Dec 1

Marry Him If You Dare
This is a romance drama with no romance. Everybody has a crush on everybody but nobody is getting together. How tiring.

Ajumma finds out that her meddling in her past does nothing to change her future but it creates a new future. Heck, this is getting more and more confusing. So… there are different universes based on the different choices people would make? Now we need Sheldon Cooper to break this down.

I want to pick out the biggest mystery in the drama. Ajumma came from the future with a hand held black leather-like overnight bag. How did she manage to fit in all those fashionable clothes and hats that she had been wearing? Maybe clothes from the future can be shrunk and expanded as you like? Haha. Maybe she’s brought cash from the future and went shopping? Never mind.

Episode 15 is all about the bromance no matter how much Young Do and Tan tries to frame it as an opportunity to owe another a favour. I am rooting for Young Do and Kim Tan more than I am for Kim Tan and Eun Sang. Is that wrong? Their frenemy-ship runs too deep. The worried looks that they give each other when their respective father and brother arrive at school for a meeting with the principal shows how much they get each other. Bromance FTW.

Kim Woobin’s New Hairstyle in Heirs Episode 14

Which hairstyle do you prefer?

20131122-012033.jpg
It is probably the gazillionth time Kim Woobin playing the high school bully. He’s always worn his hair up and it makes him look like a rascal. A very good looking one. In this episode he is wearing his hair down and in a very similar shape as Lee Minho. I have to admit I can’t tell them apart in the long shots. They both have similar heights and have their own swagger walk. Throw in similar hairstyles and I need to wear magnifying glasses to tell them apart in the long shots.

So what do you think? Leave your comments below!

KOREAN ENTERTAINMENT
Everything is so cliche on Heirs but why am I still hooked?
Dirt poor, plain looking female lead with a bleak future. Check.
Two hot, rich male leads with a terrible personality. Check.
Love triangle between two hot guys and the plain-looking girl. Check.
Pretty but bitchy second female lead. Check.
Forbidden love. Check.
Unwanted arranged marriage. Check.
Airport scene. Check.
Makjang birth secret and fake mama. Check.
Half-brother. Check.
Wrist grab, surprise hugs and forced kisses. Check
Konglish and Amurica scenes. Check.
Heavy product placement. Check.
The list goes on. I think I’ve not spotted a U-turn scene or hospital scene just yet. Or I might have forgotten. Yes, it is cliche as ever but why am I still watching it? I roll my eyes at all the supposedly romantic scenes and yawn at the brewing jealousy but I still look forward to watching every episode. Help!

Came for Lee Minho and Kim Woobin, stayed for Lee Minho and Kim Woobin, and will endure the length of the broadcast for Lee Minho and Kim Woobin. No matter if the stylist gives them silver metallic pants, neon orange sweater and green horns growing out of their heads. I’m hooked on the show but I can’t quite tell you why.

Where has Joowon gone?
Right after wrapping up Good Doctor, Joowon dived straight into rehearsals for the musical based on the popular movie, Ghost. Yay for him going back to do what he loves but boo for not being able to see him regularly on TV. He made an appearance on Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook to promote Ghost the musical. Watch!

I cringed and laughed and squirmed and cringed some more when Joowon reenacts the famous pottery scene with Yoo Hee Yeol (does he go by Hwi Yeol instead?).

Get the Look… Not? Lee Minho’s Shocking Sweaters in Heirs Episode 5

Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) traded his laid back tank tops and surf shorts for shocking sweaters when he returns to Korea. Is this what typical chaebols do? Tsk tsk to the stylist that put him in these tops. The following are a few of his looks, not in order of ridiculousness.

Here we have a white sweater with big colourful prints. No matter how much hotness he exudes wearing those shades or how much aegyo he musters in that selfie, there is no way to hide how hideous the sweater is.

Jo In Sung and We Got Married

Sorry, but an A-lister like that ain’t gonna be on a show like We Got Married.  It’s never happened but there’s always hope, yeah?  According to Go Junhee, the delish Jo In Sung watches We Got Married and enjoys it very much.  So we viewers don’t look too silly enjoying the antics of two people in a fake relationship having fake feelings for each other.

I really need to get our readers commenting!  Tell me who you would like to see paired up with Jo In Sung on We Got Married? Continue reading
