Seeing that I gritted my teeth through most of ep 7 with extreme fast-forwarding, motivated by a bizarre sense of duty, I think it's time to call it quits.

The fish-out-of-water humor is gone and nothing I like replaced it. I find family and business and whose-mother-is-that entirely tedious (the mother mess is likely what was the final strike), the teletubbies somehow got dull, and even the only two characters I previously liked - the leads - are now boring me. Plus, I have to face that while Yoochun and HJM had plenty of chemistry with costars elsewhere, there is close to nada here.

Oh well, Queen Inhyun's Man is about to start so maybe I will have a time-travel replacement.

I was going to make a lengthy Love Rain ep 7 post but I am exhausted so it will have to wait until tomorrow.



Have this to compensate:

My heart!!!!

I am exhausted, so have some caps from eps 7 and 8 without much in the way of comment.

I really loved seeing everyone, especially Jae Ha (these eps really belonged to Lee Seung Gi) coping with the new world.

I still fail to see the necessity of the (implied) sex scene - the emotional climax of the whole episode (let alone that scene) was Jae Ha actually finally allowing himself to break down and crying in Hang Ah's arms, allowing her in closer than anyone else ever. Sex just seemed not necessary at that point - sure, if they were a couple together for a while, who had sex many a time before, it would be fine. But an OTP's first time (and Hang Ah's first time ever?) entirely off-screen, as an afterthought, is kinda bizarre. Plus, having comfort-your-SO sex as a first time is really quite depressing. Ugh. The more I think about it, the less I like the choice. It was wrong for the scene, wrong for the romance, and wrongish for the characters. The only reason I can think of is that they wanted to have a baby in the future for plot reasons or something but still - first of all, I don't like baby plots in thrillers/romances, and second of all, there should have been a better way to get there and have a sex scene that meant something.

(Anyway, enough griping, have some caps) )
