And of course I am just looking at this spread and wondering if it is too late to catch a flight to the beach and just casually walk down the street and bump into them

No spoilers, just want to say that the end of Secretary Kim was so hilarious today. LOVED IT.
Here is the live recap if anyone wants to know what happened before subs come out.

    I’m resisting the temptation as I want to be surprised.

    Love your recaps btw.

      The temptation is too great! Give In!

      Just kidding, I know the feeling of resisting 🙂

And Stroppyse is doing translations of clips over on Soompi which makes me extra addicted. Y’all, I didn’t need to be any more addicted to this show. JUST LOOK AT THEM LOOK AT EACH OTHER #comeandhugmE

Of course I have to follow a picture of the father up with one of the son. #ComeandHugMe

This man is frighteningly good in Come and Hug Me and yet, when I think about it, all he does is sit in his prison cell and look hella menacing. #ComeAndHugMe

    His presence is so strong and his portrayal of the character gives me shivers. Everyone in this show does an excellent job being immersed in their characters.

      The acting is top notch. I did not think I would go into this liking the bad guy (not really liking, but, you know), but I actually am really interested in the bad guys story.

    He’s so good, he gives me the creeps. Darn Viki won’t let me continue the show beyond ep 9!

So glad DB picked up Life on Mars so I can live vicariously through them.

    I love your blog and was so happy Ms.Hammurabi was picked up (after being dropped) because YAY! When LOM was dropped because of scheduling (I mean 9 dramas is a lot- I don’t know how you do it 💖) I was sad but then DB picked it up! So I’m all covered- double YAY!

      Yes! Actually we were back and forth for a while even after I wrote that we dropped it in our sidebar. I was still like, ‘hmm…maybe we can pick it up?’ We watched the first episode and it was good so we were really on the fence. But then DB picked it up so we were all like, ‘Yay!’ Have you seen the first episode yet?

      We just finished Hammurabi yesterday but I still need to post it! I loved the last episode.

        I’ve yet to watch ep 7. I think I’m the only one whose glad about the fact that some dramas have been paused for the World Cup and what not because there’s so much to catch up on. The number of dramas ongoing is so overwhelming at the moment.

          I am so addicted to Come and Hug Me, but at least they are showing one a week so far. I think I’m going to use the 1-2 week break to catch up on all our music lists and maybe pop out some more Interview/Instagram translations. Or maybe we’ll just chill 🙂 .

            You should definitely unwind because the site is already bustling with the many recaps/ost lists you keep putting out. It’s like a superhuman power! 💕

The DB header ad is showing all 4 ads at one time stacked on top of each other. Is that happening to anyone else? I am on a Mac on Chrome by the way.

    Yup, the same thing is happening to me and I am also on a MAC using Chrome

    Same. I am on my PC using Chrome. I’m just glad we don’t have the ones that pop out of the side anymore.

    Same thing is happening to me but it’s much better than a few days ago when it was cycling through the ads and one was taller than the others which made the whole page shift.
    That was giving me a headache.

    Same here.

    Same. And before all 4 ads showed, the third header didn’t load properly for me so it would keep making the screen jump up and I was so confused until I figured out what was going on. 🙁

      That is crazy. I actually like the Beauty Tap ads because they are pretty. But all 4 at once was too much. I think it’s fixed now though, woo hoo!

    Mary put a post on the fanwall today that the ads are buggin and they’re trying to figure out what’s going on to get it fixed. Hopefully soon!

    I loved the end scene you mentioned in the recap. It was pure gold! The flip! I was laughing so much 🙂

    I. Hate. The. Music.
    It is so random and I hate the directing everytime the female lead is near water. Also, why is there so much shouting?
    Other than that, I actually liked the drama more than I expected. Leads seem like a decent people (even though female lead was too pathetic in the beginning) and they have good chemistry ~~

    I enjoyed the first episodes!
    The leads have great chemistry.
    The story is not groundbreaking, but the execution is wacky. ^^

      This show is continuing to surprise me. I love the first 4 episodes (technically 8 episodes).

My Ajusshi ended today with one of the best closing episodes I have seen in years. #IloveMyAjusshi

The 2nd episode was forebodingly creepy….and y’all, the serial killer father is based on a real Korean serial killer who was a model citizen, had a dog farm, 4 wives, and loved his sons to bits.

    I didn’t realise it was based on a real serial killer 😮

      I didn’t either!!!! Just found out after it aired. The childhood storyline is also set in that time period of 2006-2008.

        I’m worried about how much I like this show cause I also didn’t hate The Great Seducer intially and that ended up a hot mess, not a lot of faith in MBC

          I am the same! I really liked the first week of The Great Seducer but then it started to fall in the next week until it dissolved into mush. My expectations were super low with CAHM so I have been very delighted and surprised by this drama.

      Webtoon called Bastard? Main lead is also son of serial killer and later he falls in love with his classmate (who his dad wants to kill)

        Oh wow, maybe it is the same or similar.

          I doubt it is the adaption but those two definitely have the same tone (dark/creepy -and- high school love story)

        @nerdy Even I thought it was the adaptation of the webtoon initially!

    I actually liked it more than I expected. It also helps that main lead is such a good guy. I also feel bad for female lead’s family, they had me on their side the moment they stopped the car to say sorry for their dog.
    Actually, did you know that the first choice for leads were Suzy and Nam Joo Hyuk? I always feel bad for the newcomer actors, because the only way for them to get the role is if someone else rejects it (even if this someone is less talented).

      It was a nice opportunity for them and they jumped on it. Hopefully these roles will lead to main role status for both of them.
