    Sisyphus ep 10: (Dunno if this counts as a spoiler, so pls don’t read if you don’t wanna be spoiled)

    Whats-her-face is Agnes and came from the future as well. She was able to bring drugs that cause downloads (ie future selves) to disintegrate, but she wasn’t able to bring back the medication to cure her mama and has to beg for it from Sigma? Her mama that she’s willing to kill and torture and imprison people for, she didn’t think to bring back her mama’s cure? Or am I missing something here? What the hell is all this? And who allowed this TL of events?

VINCENZO ep 5: The tone and humor of this drama just might not be for me, because what is all this? Also, Taecyon is not a convincing villain. Hapless hoobae , yes. Villain-nope.

VINCENZO ep 3: Halfway through the episode, it dawned on me that for Cha-young mend her avaricious ways and start working with Vincenzo, her dad would have to die first. And lo and behold!!!!

    since you mention tony stark..

    has it ever happened to anyone when a fantastic portrayal is beaten by another actor…

    The more i think of it, everyone was so ga ga over DJ and his iron man.. that they thought he could play narcissist sherlock well.. and he did. .. UNTIL BBC Sherlock happened

UNCANNY COUNTER, episodes 1 and 2: I’m in! I am cautiously optimistic. I LOVE that our hero is a sweet, thoughtful, and sensitive guy. And I love his friends too. Fingers crossed for a great ride!

    See, I think it is all a facade. The spirit that entered his body already said that he had a ton of built up anger in her body. That look he gave his grandmother when she threw the cake at him was totally different from the one with he was giving her a bath.

    So you have a teenager, with anger issues he is not exploring, on top of have super human strength that can kill someone, yeah it is a recipe for disaster.

    And we know that Mo tak had his accident at the same time as Mun. That is another recipe for anger disaster.

      That’s a good point that didn’t even occur to me – the pent up anger, ie. And I wonder if the show will explore that as well.

      Also, Mo-tak looks familiar. Isn’t he the guy that called the dad in the beginning, telling him to survive? The guy who fell off the roof?

        Yes. So he knows Mun but probably lost his memory while in a coma.

      Yeaaa, I keep thinking about this when they say he’ll be unbeatable when he blows up, like, should that be a good thing or a thing you need to stop..?
      They did mention the rule about “not using the power for revenge”, somewhere in the future am guessing Moon will have to face this.

        He has already started by going after the bullies at his school. So, we are already there. That is not going to get better unless he really hurts one of those clowns or worse.

TALE OF THE NINE-TAILED, ep 10: this immensely powerful mountain spirit was going to let an evil snake take over his body, and use him and his powers to destroy the earth bc of “love”? Is it madness?

    I don’t think so. Remember the scene in which he tricked and killed the spirit of darkness and uncovered Imoogi? Yeon has shown that he has more strength and wit than what he shows the world.

      In the past, he was NOT going to trick that imoogi. He was going to offer up his body.

        But was he? I think the human girl sacrificed herself before he could come up with a better plan.

        I think he had something else up his sleeve too. He said it with his signature smirk that he must have thought of something. He did have his sword pointed towards himself so I wonder if he was going to wait for the transfer then kill himself before the imoogi took full control.

        2

          No he wasn’t. That’s why he looked so surprised when the human girl was able to overcome the spirit and stop him from that stupidly selfish and useless decision in the name of “love.”

            Idk to me he looked more distraught because she used her part of their debt, and so he couldn’t stop her anymore. I personally watched it as both of them being adorkable fools each trying to out sacrifice the other lmao, till she pulled out the debt he owed her.

            It’s a huge pity their “love” didn’t inspire them to be more sensible.

            The scene is open for interpretation. I think he was surprised because his plan was foiled. He hadn’t taken into consideration that she could break through and call upon his debt.

    And they need to find some consistency for Ji-a’s character. Either she believes in/is affected by this past life, fate business or she doesn’t/ doesn’t care much about it. What is all this waffling?

    Haha that’s why i thought the drama was immature. You described it aptly. The brothers have some teenage angst which they need an elders scolding to get over with.

      Bruh. While I eschew physical violence, really, a few slaps should have been given to them both. I don’t understand how they can send Yeon after foxes who eat a few livers, and leave Rang to his indiscriminate destruction or Yeon to be throwing tantrums.

Yoo In-na has such an ethereal, whimsical quality about her. It’s why she can play all those weird and dreamy characters so accurately. ❤️❤️❤️

THE SCHOOL NURSE FILES ep 1: I\’m sorry, I just can\’t do it. The plot reads like the writer was high on acid when they contrived it. Visually, it\’s even more ridiculous (jellies? A toy saber? Come on!)

    What sageuks have you watched that you liked?

      I like romantic and epic sageuks – oh and fusion sageuks too. I’ve watched and liked Dong Yi, The Flower in Prison (my very first Kdrama), Shine or Go Crazy, Dae Jang Geum, The Princess’ Man

        For fusion/romantic you might like The Tale of Nokdu. The Crowned Clown was loved and hated by Beanies (the last episode was fairly ridiculous and I really liked the rest of it). Beanies loved Rookie Historian and still talk about it. My Country is awesome for man watching and action, but it’s fairly weak on the women and history front (the comment section in the recaps includes lots of historical background and links though). @wishfultoki listed more traditional and excellent sageuks below.

          My sister is not a sageuk fan and she loved TALE OF NOKDU. Sheโ€™s watching MY COUNTRY now.

          I’ve seen the movie movie the crowned clown was base Don (with Han Hyo Joo ans Lee Byung-hun, which I loved), but I don’t do Yeo Jin-goo so the drama is a no for me. Started Rooki Historian but dropped it because it was simply ridiculous (Cha Eun-woo’s character was vapid).
