[Live Recap] “Master’s Sun” Episode 17

This show didn’t just end on a high note – it screamed it out. Good luck finding another rom-com this good anytime soon. I love that all the necessary loose ends were tied up. There wasn’t a clear cut exposition of every minor detail, but it grazed the truth enough to give us satisfactory justifications. Every kdrama fan knows that happy endings come in all shapes and sizes. Some...

Sometimes even holding on once is enough to never want to let go. Joong Won had a point about how it’s unfair for them to talk about ending it when they never really started. What he has yet to figure out is starting something can make it that much harder to end it too. Even with just the hand holding for the first time as two people who like each other, he had a problem letting go. How much...

I love when tables turn, but it’s even more appealing cuz we are talking about Joong Won. The man who despised anyone touching him has come a long way over the months to get to this point where he is willingly putting on an act to wring sympathy points out of Gong Sil to get some skinship. Ever since last night, Gong Sil has been pulling away from him, but every chance he gets, he finds a le...

Selective memory is a tricky thing if you don’t gain control over it and it gets away from you. In Joong Won’s case, it ran away at full speed. He never had a chance to hold onto his denials cuz the facts kept knocking down all his attempts at repressing his memory. I bet he really did think he could go on living in the dark, but fate in the form of that necklace just kept turning that...

Given the choice between not having him alive and not having him in her life – it was a no brainer about which one Gong Sil would choose. Her bravery in that moment was unparalleled. She would have given up anything in that instant just to bring him back alive. Joong Won got to say he loved her with words, but she gets to prove her love with her decision.

To a certain extent, in the back of your subconscious, you wait for the other shoe to drop during the happiest moments. For these two, that thought hasn’t even occurred to them. Life has dealt them some heavy blows in the past so I bet they thought they earned this right to be happy together. They weren’t all wrong. Even though they inadvertently  became each other’s safety nets,...

What gets me the most about this couple is their unspoken sincerity for each other. They may not be totally up front about their feelings, but when their backs are turned, their true colors come out. Joong Won can’t stand to be without her and is following his heart more these days. Gong Sil continues to worry about how each of her actions might affect him. She is afraid of showing too much ...

[Live Recap] “Master’s Sun” Episode 10

If I had been hooked up to a heart monitor tonight as I watched this episode, the numbers would have spiked like crazy at the end. Since there have been a dearth of quality romantic comedies lately, I forgot this feeling. This exhilaration and high that just makes you feel so satisfied and content.  Maybe it’s just me, but I need these actors to do such a convincing job that I forget this is...

[Live Recap] “Master’s Sun” Episode 9

The look on his face is recognition and maybe some admission as well. He finally gets what this means. It’s the moment when his emotion finally caught up to his heart. The best part about Joong Won has been his hidden vulnerability. There is a tenderness there that only we get to see. Underneath that gruff exterior beats the heart of a man who forgot how to love and is now remembering. He ne...

[Live Recap] “Master’s Sun” Episode 8

It always surprises me how inventive this guy gets with his excuses and explanations for skinship. Gong Sil might have been the one to initiate them, but lately he is definitely the only one always coming up with ways to get her to hold onto him. What’s so hilarious is that he is the one enjoying it inwardly, but these days his non stop grinning is giving him away. Try to tamp down this guy&...
