Witch Amusement: Episode 15
by | May 10, 2007 | 79 Comments

I was mildly concerned that in its last week, Witch Amusement would for no reason regain its sanity and fall into a sudden abyss of logical, comprehensible blandness. Having seen Episode 15, I laugh at my naivete. I worried for nothing. All is well in the land of entertaining crazy. I loved this insane, silly episode because it made me laugh. Who cares if most of it was the inappropriate kind?

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY

Blue Sorbet – “그남자가 자꾸…” (That man keeps on…) [ zShare download ]

[I apologize in advance for the grainy quality of the caps. I miss SUN rips. They were reliably high-quality. I hope they get back online soon, because some of the other rips from other sources aren't as good.]

EPISODE 15 SUMMARY

Yoo Hee, having heard from Joon Ha’s ex-fiancee that Joon Ha is using her to get the hospital, storms into Joon Ha’s office ready to give him a piece of her mind. She’s got her angry game-face on… or she would, if Han Ga In had any range of facial expression. (One of the most gorgeous actresses around these days, and not a horrible actress… but damn if I can see her emote something, already!) Instead, she just looks mildly unhappy.

To my disappointment, Yoo Hee doesn’t slap Joon Ha, or call him out on his behavior, or otherwise verbally castrate him. Instead, she asks leadingly, “Before we marry, is there anything you want to tell me? Why did you pick me? Of all people, why did you decide to marry me?”

Joon Ha guesses she probably wants to hear something childish like, “Because I love you.” (You THINK, Joon Ha? The girl’s marrying you in a day, and you think she’s not going to want to hear that sometime soon?) She asks if he does love her, and Joon Ha takes a moment to answer, “Well. Do I have to answer that in words?” No, Joon Ha. You can answer that with your long, awkward silences and frowny faces.

Still, Yoo Hee wants to hear Joon Ha say it (or catch him lying), because she persists: “Still. Why are you marrying me?” He answers, “Because you’re you. Because I think you’re my match.” She says she heard about the hospital, and Joon Ha tries to backtrack to cover his ass. He says if she heard the nurses gossipping, she should ignore it. Joon Ha does that thing where he turns the situation around on Yoo Hee, somehow making her the bad guy, saying he’s really disappointed in her. There are some weird rumors floating around, but they aren’t true. She should trust what he says, not the rumors. Yoo Hee realizes Joon Ha’s not going to come clean, so she lets him off the hook.

As Joon Ha turns to leave, Yoo Hee grabs him by the lapels, in a threatening (?) gesture (and I say, WTF?), before she lets go, brushes him off calmly, and sends him off. I have no idea what they were going for. I am getting used to this feeling.

.

Disappointed, Yoo Hee thinks of Mu-ryong as she visits their old meeting places — the fountain park, the bridge. Likewise, Mu-ryong thinks of Yoo Hee getting married, and despondently wanders the same places.


I know it’s supposed to be a sad scene, but all I could wonder is if that little bridge feels sad and inferior next to the big bridge like that.

.
Predictably, they end up meeting — at the restaurant where Mu-ryong once “surprised” Yoo Hee with a meal and balloons. Yoo Hee sadly wonders if she’s someone who won’t ever be loved. Maybe a witch like her just can’t be loved. Mu-ryong tells her she’s plenty lovable. Yoo Hee: “Then why did you dump me?” Mu-ryong deflects, saying it doesn’t matter, since she’s getting married — she’s already in a loving relationship.

Yoo Hee tears up as she tells him no. “Joon Ha doesn’t love me. He’s pretending he does because he wants the hospital.” Mu-ryong’s angry to hear this, and starts to storm out intending to talk to Joon Ha, but Yoo Hee stops him. He tells her to cancel her wedding.

This is perhaps not the best time to point out Han Ga In’s acting flaws, because it’s so near the end… but I can’t watch her attempt to cry another time without at least mentioning it. I actually think Han Ga In is a fairly decent actress. Not great, but perfectly adequate. She’s not going to win any awards, but she has enough presence and beauty to get far. This role also suits her very well, because for the most part, Yoo Hee’s a contained person who doesn’t have to show a great range of emotion. But the crying! People don’t usually cry wanting to cry. They’re usually trying NOT to cry. But Yoo Hee always looks like she’s trying so hard to muster tears that she’s so proud of herself when she actually summons them.

To succeed in kdramas, you really need, above other things, to look pretty and cry well. There are some sob queens who really make you believe their pain is real — that’s a talent. Lee Da Hae does this wonderfully — it really seems like she’s someone who’s trying to suppress her tears but is unable to hold back.

Kim Jung Eun is another, even if she sometimes looks like a constipated monkey. Ooh, did you think that was mean? Really? You still think I’m mean?

.

Digression over. Mu-ryong faces Joon Ha and demands he call off the wedding. How dare he use Yoo Hee like this? Doesn’t he care about her happiness?

I could take a moment to point out the slash-worthiness of this scene (oh look, I just did) but Jae Hee and Kim Jung Hoon have nowhere the level of man-chemistry that Jae Hee and Dennis have. But fear not! There is plenty of that to come.

Yoo Hee tells her father she wants to cancel the wedding. She’s heard all about the hospital, and knows her father’s involvement. The President admits that his methods weren’t fair, but he did it to bring them together. “Don’t you two love each other? Isn’t that enough?” He tells her not to shame him at the wedding. After Yoo Hee leaves, he informs Joon Ha that Yoo Hee’s found out. He’d better find her and make things right.

Joon Ha rushes to Yoo Hee’s apartment, but she doesn’t answer the door or answer his calls. So he’s forced to profess his deep love for her via text message. Aw. How romantic.

.

At the Cordon Bleu cooking battle, Mari and Mu-ryong both advance to the finals. Mari’s so excited she gives Mu-ryong a hug… and note how uncomfortable Mu-ryong is at her touch. On the other hand…

…Mu-ryong is rescued by Johnny. And he just can’t resist copping a feel in gratitude. Heh.

Johnny tells Mu-ryong he’s going to Yoo Hee’s wedding, and Mu-ryong’s shocked to hear the wedding’s still on. He tells Johnny they were right — Yoo Hee’s being deceived by Joon Ha. He wants to rush to the wedding together, but Johnny tells him no. Mu-ryong has to stay and finish the competition; Johnny will go.

At the wedding, Yoo Hee looks so obviously unhappy that everyone tells her to smile. She doesn’t comply the first time she’s instructed to smile, so everyone assumes that repeating the dictate over, and over, and over, will do the trick. It doesn’t.

Mu-ryong is distracted throughout the competition, which is an Iron Chef-style cook-off whereby each contestant must make a dish using preselected ingredients. Only without Kitchen Stadium or any of the flash and glitz. So maybe more like Aluminum Chef. Finally, just as the competition is nearly over, Mu-ryong can’t take it anymore, stops in the middle of plating his dish, and rushes out. Seung Mi, observing this, runs after. Because, huh?

Anyway, Mu-ryong leaves his dish among some of the most unappetizing looking concoctions ever. If this is the future of French cuisine in Korea, man are they screwed. (That third one looks like vomit. And the fourth one looks like burnt vomit.)


.

Mu-ryong’s taxi gets stuck in traffic, and it’s hysterical to see them pan over from his frustrated face… out to the traffic scene… to Seung Mi, stuck in a taxi TWO CARS BEHIND HIM.

Impatient, Mu-ryong dashes out of his taxi and runs to the wedding. (You mean just like in Choon Hyang?? I’m sure that’s just a coincidence.)

Unfortunately for Mu-ryong, he’s running late, because the wedding is already under way. Fortunately for Mu-ryong, Yoo Hee cannot say her vows, and announces she can’t go through with the wedding. Joon Ha, lovely groom that he is, grabs her arm forcefully and tries to get her to stay. But Yoo Hee pushes him aside and runs away, down the aisle…

…causing her father’s heart to act up. Insert inappropriate laugh here! It’s absurd. But so funny.

She runs into Mu-ryong, who’s just arrived. He grabs her hand and they take off together…

And Manager Lee attempts to run after them, only to (WTF?) fall down. What happened? It appears the GROUND TRIPPED HIM. Or maybe it was the air.

The couple run out together, and for some inexplicable reason, they are chased. By men in dark suits. Lucky for them, Johnny pulls up to the curb in his car and tells them to get in.

.
The men in dark suits get in their own car and continue the chase. Does no one stop to wonder what’s going to happen when they actually catch the couple? What can they do? Force them to marry other people? SERIOUSLY.

It might seem that PD Jeon Ki Sang wants to be an action director, seeing how he keeps forcing it into a simple romantic comedy. Just look at all the thriller-action weirdness of Episode 14. I think he might have the talent for it, but WTF? It’s like he got so bored of the nonsense plot (okay, you can understand that) and he was damned if he wasn’t going to give us a car chase, no matter the logic.

So Johnny’s driving, being chased by these dark-suit guys, weaving in and out of traffic, when he tells Mu-ryong and Yoo Hee they should get out of the car and leave somewhere else. He hands them his wallet because now they have skipped over from Runaway Bride to The Fugitive.

Mu-ryong and Yoo Hee escape on a train to the countryside. I DON’T KNOW WHY.

But finally the happy couple have a chance to be together at Mu-ryong’s grandma’s place in the country. (Kind of like in Choon Hyang? Just sayin’.) Safe for the moment, they share in an almost-kiss, only to be interrupted by… Dal Ja’s granny!

.

Back in the city, Seung Mi cries. GOOD LORD. I like Seung Mi and all, but don’t you think she would’ve figured out it was over when Mu-ryong admitted he liked Yoo Hee? Or when he told her he couldn’t marry her? Or when he BROKE UP WITH HER?

Johnny tries to comfort her, saying it’s not a bad idea to stay being friends with one you love. He understands how it feels when you can’t have someone you love. It hurts. “But if you stop seeing them… In the end, it hurts more to lose someone so valuable.” (I assume he’s talking about Yoo Hee to relate it to Seung Mi’s situation with Mu-ryong, but who else thinks *winkwink* they’re really both talking about Mu-ryong?)

Joon Ha’s ex-fiancee tells him she informed Yoo Hee about everything, which angers and shocks him. Joon Ha looks like he’s attempting to cry, but as he cannot follow the convoluted plot, he is unable to find the adequate emotions.

.

Mu-ryong and Yoo Hee lay next to each other, both awake. Yoo Hee asks what he’s thinking, and Mu-ryong takes her hand as he tells her, “I was thinking I should never let go of this hand.” Yoo Hee tells him he’d better keep his promise.

Mu-ryong: “Yoo Hee, I’m sorry.”
Yoo Hee: “For what?”
Mu-ryong: Just everything. For hurting you. And in the future, you might have a hard time if we’re together.”
Yoo Hee: “Mu-ryong. I’m thankful.”
Mu-ryong: “For what?”
Yoo Hee: “Just everything. For liking someone like me. For coming to get me.”

But they are interrupted from kissing at the appearance of Manager Lee and a pissed-off Joon Ha. He tells Yoo Hee her father’s in the hospital, and drags her off. Mu-ryong tries to stop them, but Manager Lee gets in the way…


(WTF?)

.
At the hospital, President Ma tells her she can’t be with Mu-ryong. He just won’t do; get rid of him. She tells him she cannot obey: “I care deeply for him.”

Joon Ha apologizes to Yoo Hee, defending his actions saying he thought she was better off not knowing about the hospital. He thought she’d misunderstand. Yoo Hee’s unmoved, saying she can’t go back to him. He blurts out to keep her from leaving, “I love you.” (Faker! He may care for her more than he was willing to admit, but I don’t buy his act at all.) She leaves.

Mu-ryong likewise meets with familial opposition. His father is sympathetic, but doesn’t Mu-ryong remember how her family opposed the match so much they wrecked their restaurant? His father advises him to think about it seriously.

Mu-ryong pays a visit to President Ma in the hospital. The President asks about his cooking education, and attempts to buy off Mu-ryong, saying he’ll send him to France to study. If he breaks up with Yoo Hee, he’ll send him to Paris, or anywhere he wants. Mu-ryong: “I’m sorry, but I can’t do that. I understand how you feel about Yoo Hee. But this isn’t the way to make her happy.” The President objects, but Mu-ryong continues: “I love your daughter.” The President tells him to leave nicely when he asks, and cautions him: “Let go of her, before people get hurt.”

Don’t you just love the grave, life-or-death implications of what should be a simple, low-key romance? Ah, the melodrama!

.

Mu-ryong meets with Yoo Hee and assures her that he won’t ever let her go. Angered to find out they’re still seeing each other, President Ma exerts his influence and causes important clients to pull out of their contracts with Yoo Hee’s firm. (Which, WTF? Isn’t that his own firm too? Way to cut off your nose to spite your face.) He tells Yoo Hee that he’ll stop it if she breaks up with Mu-ryong.

Yoo Hee: “Don’t badmouth him. He’s an outstanding person. He’s someone who sees strengths before flaws. He’s someone who says thank you even if you give him nothing. He’s someone who understands what’s truly important, and how to really love. I won’t break up with him. I can’t be without him.”

Mu-ryong gets some news of his own when Johnny informs him he’s being sent to Paris. Although he lost the competition to Mari, the chef was impressed with Mu-ryong’s cooking and has invited him to be his student. Johnny says he’s a great chef — he learned from him.

At home, they both sense something’s up with the other. Mu-ryong tells her he’s been invited to train with a famous chef — in Paris. But he’ll have to go away. For two years.

He asks if she’s okay with that. He suggests forgetting about it and staying behind, but Yoo Hee tells him he has to go. She’ll wait for him. So they go watch-shopping, because Yoo Hee wants to buy him something to remind him of her. Whenever the clock hits 11:11, he’d better think of her. (It’s a call-back to an earlier episode, when Mu-ryong tells her 11:11 means someone’s thinking of you, and 4:44 means someone’s insulting you.)

Unfortunately, Yoo Hee’s credit card is rejected…

And she goes home to see all her belongings are being repossessed. Oh, her spiteful father! The red tags are everywhere. It’s freaking ridiculous. Are they seriously going to repossess her flowers? Her bottle of soap? Her FAUCET??

    Hi Javabeans,

    Love your commentary! Burst out laughing at some of the comments you made; “constipated monkey”, “maybe the ground trip him”, the vomit cuisine, and my personal fave “…..he cannot follow the convoluted plot, he is unable to find the adequate emotions” Hilarious man!

    The plot is really ridiculous! What kind of father will go through that extent to stop a pair of love birds from being together? And instead pushed to pair her up with Joon Ha when he did not like him in the first place. Is it better for her to marry someone who does not really love her but only want to climb up the ladder cos of her wealth and status? Then to have someone who really loves her even though her father tries to bribe him too?

    Gonna miss this drama when it ends. No longer can I look forward to the convoluted plot development.

  6. ginnie

    What is your reaction if you are an aspiring actor and you receive a script like this and suppose to perform that very day? Wouldn’t people go crazy trying to find logic and figure out ways to pull off the character as best as possible? Or do you just go with the flow and treat this as a comedy…

    I know it’s supposed to be a sad scene, but all I could wonder is if that little bridge feels sad and inferior next to the big bridge like that.

    That part is funny! Thanks a lot for summarizing this episode! 1 more episode to go, eh? This is so comforting, I mean like with all my exams and all. Sucks to be me! I go to a non-semesteral school, so I have like 8 exams!
    I know, why would they want her faucet and soap? Like seriously. WTH! OMG, didn’t she earn her own money, not her dad? She’s paying for her credit card an all. Whatever, thanks a lot again!

    I can’t wait for ur summary on 16…I was crying over it because IT SUX (ok it’s my own opinion but I think half of world’s population is dissing the scripwriter) so maybe ur hilarious comments can cheer me up and make me like the ending afterall..perhaps it’s meant to be like this…a plot without ‘a head and tail’ (old Chnese saying)…whatever it is I am experiencing withdrawal symptoms now..from Jae Hee and Han Gan In and this silly plot lol..*runs of to dig out Chun Hyang vcds from cupboard* =)

  13. 13 gail

    i was literally laughing out loud throughout your summary. wow. and the accompanying pictures were priceless. shouldn’t you be writing your own kdrama for jeon ki sang to direct? just sayin’

    loved the lee da hae shout-out. da hae crying makes me cry along with her.

  14. 14 c-bus

    is it strange that i visit this blog at least once a day?? i LOVE the commentary here!
    The plot for this drama went from cutesy to CRAZY…this drama had so much potential but what happened to character development? especially in the case of Joon Ha…and I think Ha Ga In is beautiful but why are her eyes always so wide open? It’s the only way she shows emotion besides the forced crying…when i read “Joon Ha looks like he’s attempting to cry, but as he cannot follow the convoluted plot, he is unable to find the adequate emotions.” i laughed out loud – that’s so true, method acting in this drama would be impossible…thanks so much for makin’ lil’ ole me laugh!

  15. 15 PHU XUAN

    I AM TRULY VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUMMMARY,
    BUT TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, i THINK IT’S KIND OF RUDE TO LEAVE YOUR CRITIC MARKS IN THERE AS WELL. I MEAN, I REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS DRAMA, AND YOU KIND OF RUINED IT FOR ME. IT’S BE ALOT NICER IF YOU LEFT YOUR OWN COMMENTARY ON THE END OR SOMETHING, I DON’T KNOW. BUT WHEN I’M READING AND ALL OFF A SUDDEN, YOU’RE CRITIZING THE ACTORS AND HOW THEY ACT REALLY MAKES IT KIND OF WELL, NOT COOL? I GUESS. I’M JUST SAYING THOUGH.

    I STILL APPRICIATE YOUR HARD WORK

  17. 17 javabeans

    PHU XUAN, it’s unfortunate you’re offended by my comments. The simplest answer is that you don’t have to read this. But I don’t see how it’s rude or “not cool” of me to post whatever I think on my own site.

    And if Episode 15′s recap bothers you, you might not want to read my Episode 16 recap! Just a friendly heads-up.

    oh, and GAIL, dude i’d totally want to write something for jeon ki sang to direct the hell out of! his talents are sadly underused here.

  19. 19 allie_cat

    i salute you for having the time and energy to continue doing summaries for wyh despite the convuluted plot, if it can be called a plot in the first place. reading your summaries feel like my brain is talking back at me, brilliant! i love jae hee to bits but this is just sad bordering on pathetic. the only thing i’m looking forward to about ep16 are your comments! you make it more entertaining!

  20. 20 zooey

    I’ve noted the excessive amount of WTFs, but I can’t say I blame you. Lol. It’s a pity that I won’t be seeing a lot more of the Jae Hee-Dennis tandem. You are right on target about this man-couple. Kind of reminds me of the Bi-Lee Dong Gun tandem in Sangdoo…

    Loved the comments. Thanks for the summary. Can’t wait for crazy episode #16.

  22. 22 Grace

    Thank you for all your summaries! I look forward to you posting them every week XD

    I’m still watching Witch Yoo Hee, but only for the sake of Jae Hee. The plot was okay initially, but I guess the scriptwriters got substituted by someone else :x.
    Heh, love the constipation part. (and no, I don’t think you’re mean ;D)

    Jae Hee and Dennis is loveeee. They’ll make a great couple XD
    Thanks for all your efforts! :)

  27. 27 secret admirer

    javabeans,

    This gotta be the BEST blog that you’ve written on WYH! Unbelievable, you are Hollywood material… YOU should have been this dramedy’s scriptwriter.

    WYH was exactly like you said: so much potential yet failed to delivered. Why do I feel like there were 2 different writing teams for this show (and obviously one abandoned the ship after ep 6).

    Jae Hee was actually the best thing about this show… Wonder if he ever regrets signing on w/o reading the script! The rest of the cast was really painful to watch.

    can’t wait to read your material re: the disastrous last episode… BTW, i thought that it mirrors My Name is Kim Sam Soon (with the stairway kiss and the uncertain future of the leading couple).

    keep it coming… and i will definitely miss reading YOUR post when this is over. Thanks for all the laughter!

    Phu Xuan, everyone here loves the way Javabeans reviews dramas. If you are too serious to feel it humorous and interesting, there’s no need to say it out. Javabeans is herself, with her own way of comment and people here, fans of kramas, really like and appreciate that.

    Thank you, Javabeans, for your ever thorough and hilarious reviews!

  29. 29 Andy

    Hey Javabeans, I can tell from your witty writing that you are an intelligent person. Perhaps you should try your hand at screen writing. I have an inkling that you would be an ace writing who could crank out some good k-series.

    In any case, thanks for making me laugh so hard with your episode recaps.

    Cheers!

    Sarahbeans, I’m not touching this drama with a 10-foot pole but I’ll pay to read your summaries. Fortunately I wasn’t eating or drinking when I clicked on that “constipated monkey” pic of Kim Jung-eun. You’re just a riot, hehe.^^

    lol, glad to know you don’t think i’m completely horrible for the constipated monkey line. but honestly, she looks like one — any other phrase would not have been as accurate.

    i don’t blame everyone who’s stopped watching (or who are solely watching for Jae Hee) — if I was still taking this drama completely seriously, it would be way too painful to continue.

    secret admirer (gotta love that name!), “disastrous” indeed. wow. it took me a lot longer to write the recap for 16 than 15 (15 was fun and fast), because 16 hurt my head.

  34. 34 Dais

    Alright, Javabeans…It’s 2:30 am and I should have been in bed. But I began reading this summary instead. I started with small giggles and climaxed with a loud try-to-hold-it-quiet laugh complete with a snore at “and interrupted by…Dal Ja’s granny”. Geezzz…..thanks, buddy!! You’re doing such a great job entertaining us. I really am glad to have found your site.

    I’m looking forward to read more of your recaps and enjoying your choice of music. You are one talented writer. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Javabeans,

    Found your blog recently and totally love the way you summarize the episodes. For WYH case I found that I can enjoy the episode better after reading your summary :)

    You ROCKS! and Thanks for bringing the summary to us non-korean speaking fans.

    PS: I don’t think you are mean on the “constipated monkey” thingy..hehehe..right spot-on. Love her in All About Eve but recently found her to look more & more “plastic” to my liking.

    WYH script is getting more ridiculous and I feel sorry for all the actors and actresses in the drama who might feel the same.

    As always, I love your summary. It makes me laugh after a rough day from work. Thank you very much :)

    I agree with you that LDH crying skill is very very impressive. I can feel her pain while watching My Girl Ep.14 (Airport scene). I would love to see LDW and LDH acting together again but I don’t know why we rarely see the same couple acting on the different K-Drama.

  41. 41 Penny

    i was honestly amused with the constipated monkey comment! That was honestly the joke of the day..
    Maybe i should watch her cry in Lovers agn…

    great comments! i love reading your funny insights!

    ahhh.. it’s nice to see DalJa’s halmoni as guest appearance!

    anyway, i also felt GaIn’s acting was weird when she was trying to act outraged after talking to the major clients. she was throwing things everywhere, but i felt no emotion of anger at all.

    the red tags.. theyre everywhere! poor YooHee! :(

    This is ridiculous…Gosh. How can it carry on with such kind of content????? Too many things to be ripped off at the same time which make them so hard to be digested! Gosh! Kill me! I am crazy over the plot and the cast. And now it turns into sth like this! Thank you Javabeans, you have done a gr8 job. I have decided to stop waiting for the new eps and concentrate on my exams. Love you so much!

    You had me laughing so hard! I love reading your synopsis more than watching the drama itself! so much of what you’ve said is what I was thinking, especially the “man love” of Johnny and MuRyoung!

    “If this is the future of French cuisine in Korea, man are they screwed. (That third one looks like vomit. And the fourth one looks like burnt vomit.)”

    It’s 2AM here in Indonesia and I am laughing my a** off here……..Sarah, you are hilarious. Even my wife who is half asleep to nurse feed our month old baby is snapped into laughter after I shared this with her. Gotta keep it down….don’t wanna wake the baby up.

    The series is getting more and more ‘amusing’……..ai yay yay……

    i was just watching “Lovers in Paris” and in one episode the main girl cried. I thought, “I’d seen her face before.” Then the words “constipated monkey” came to mind. Javabeans, you just enriched my kdrama viewing experience! Thank you.

    javabeans,

    you are one funny woman!! lmao over the burnt vomit comment, my siblings thought i had gone insane. i’m glad i found your blog. this is a consolation for the disappointment over the long hours of sleep lost in watching witch yoo hee. seriously, quit your ‘real’ job (what is it btw?) and be a full-fledged writer.

    Javabeans, you have such an awesome talent! I check your site about everyday. I’m really glad you’re sharing it to the world, and I just gotta say that I really really really appreciate all the diligent work you’ve spent typing up these summaries.

    I read your comments on this post about several times because they were just too hilarious to leave behind. “Joon Ha looks like he’s attempting to cry, but as he cannot follow the convoluted plot, he is unable to find the adequate emotions.”
