5-Line Recap: Yong Pal ep 14 – Revenge!

This is late, because Steven Universe has taken up most of my time. The good news, I’m almost caught up. The bad news, I’m almost caught up 😦

Anyways, let’s see what happens in episode 14 of Yong Pal:

5-Line Recap: Yong Pal ep 13 – Yeo Jin is revenge crazy

Let’s get straight into it!

5-Line Recap:

1. Tae Hyun arrives at the funeral and tells everyone that he’s now the legal guardian of Yeo Jin.

The 3 minute mark would have been the best way to end the last episode. Oh well. Once Tae Hyun interrupts the ceremony of Yeo Jin leaving, her plan finally goes into motion and Do Joon loses everything. He gets arrested, loses the secretary, and gets embarrassed in front of all those high ranking officials at the funeral.

President Go also gets arrested as well. Also Kim Young Mi, the female worker who committed suicide and then had her identity taken for a bit by Yeo Jin, was honoured at the funeral.

Yong Pal ep 12 – Chae Young is still awesome!

Last time, Yeo Jin learned that Sung Hoon was a jerk and that Tae Hyun is the only guy for her….bleh. She also got a USB that will help her in the fight against her brother.

It’s finally time for Yeo Jin to break away from her princess title and become a warrior. She won’t be Snowpunzel anymore, she’ll become Snowpunzelan? Mulanowpunzel? Mulunzelite? Hmmm. I’ll figure something now so that doesn’t sound like a Sailor Moon villain. I just need more time to properly hash that out….

Yong Pal ep 11 – Less Kisses more Business

The last episode ended with a good cliffhanger and one that I was excited to see play out. With Yeo Jin getting up, she’ll finally start her revenge plan. More than anything, I want to see Yeo Jin do something crazy.

5-Line Recap:

1. Yeo Jin acts like she has amnesia, but once alone with Tae Hyun she hugs him and tells him that she has a weapon to use against the Chairman.

Is this weapon herself? She says it’s to save Tae Hyun and since they can’t avoid a fight, she might as well go all out. YES! Yeo Jin. YES! I’m glad she’s finally taking charge of her life, especially since she’s been held captive for three years. Since the Chairman is planning to kill Yeo Jin for good and prepare a funeral and arbitrary, he has Tae Hyun head over to the locked tower and announce Yeo Jin’s time of death.

Death Note Live Action ep 8 & 9

First, I apologize for not keeping up to date with this. I also apologize, because this blog post will mostly be about episode 9. I have to say though that I find it weird how this version of Light is so transparent when it comes to his emotions. Was he always written this way? Maybe…I think it’s because this version is meant to be a good guy, while the original wasn’t.

Here’s just a quick recap of episode 8, only instead of five lines I’ll do one in three for it.

1. Mikami gets a thug to attack Misa so he can steal the red Death Note, which is a huge change to the story, but one that I’m excited to see play out.

2. Light and L fight each other, all because L starts to write Light’s name in the Death Note., which is another change.

3. Light writes down L’s name in the Death Note, but surprisingly L doesn’t die.

Unlike the previous episode that followed the manga’s story-line fairly loosely, this one changed a lot. Not that this is a bad thigng though. I kind of like that Mikami took matters into his own hands and got the book. I also like the L is still suspicious, even though he told everyone that he isn’t. I think Light is acting a bit cray cray though, which is kind of an awkward transition, but whatever.

Alright, with that out of the way let’s go into episode nine!

Yong Pal ep 10 – Jealousy saved a life

So…this is late, but let’s just ignore that at the moment because episode 9, while interesting, had some major flaws. The romance felt really forced on both sides. Tae Hyun and Yeo Jin do look good together and have chemistry, but their newfound love for one another still doesn’t ring true to me. Episode 9 was meant to show how these two lovebirds could be if they had no enemies, so I did get what the writer was doing here. But it still doesn’t feel natural. Maybe I’m just being weird though. In any case, I have high hopes for episode 10 so here’s its

Yong Pal ep 9 – Everyone is dead

I was disappointed with the last episode and the introduction of the romance that came out of nowhere. I was surprised that I wasn’t in the minority with this view, but I can move past that because I do like everything else on the show.

I’m expecting more romance, because this is a kdrama, but hopefully that doesn’t deter from the other more interesting plot lines in Yong Pal.

5 – Line Recaps:

1. Chief Lee and Chae Young both learn of my beautifully creepy Nurse Gothel Hwang’s death.

I wonder if this will give Chief Lee the means to kick-start his redemption arc. We’ve seen the difference between him and the Chairman in how they’ve dealt with the grief from killing Yeo Jin. The Chairman got drunk, made a fool out of himself, and, more importantly, placed the blame on Tae Hyun and Chief Lee. Even though he ordered the crime, he’s already removed himself from the situation by convincing himself that they are at fault.

With Chief Lee, he’s still reeling from what he’s done. He can’t sleep and is getting more and more paranoid. This means he has a chance to redeem himself, so I’m kind of hoping that happens for him. I don’t think he’s a bad guy, but he’s stuck and feels like no matter what he does he’ll get screwed over. Which is true. Even if he doesn’t get redeemed his paranoia is enough to provide a lot of entertainment value. Since Nurse Hwang was murdered, he feels like anyone of them can be killed next. This will lead to his downfall, but in what way? Will he have a good ending or a bad one? I think he’ll die, but hopefully he’ll have a smile on his face.

Yong Pal ep 8 – Mixed Feelings

For the first time this season, I’m actually nervous about watching this episode because I’m afraid that I won’t like it. I’m really enjoying the show, but now that the romance portion is starting to pick up I’m feeling slightly apprehensive about it. The pacing for the episodes were always fast paced, but they still moved in a good speed. You understood the motivations from the characters and the plot developed nicely. The same can’t be sad about the romance, which feels like it came out of nowhere and is happening way too fast. I’m not saying that Tae Hyun and Yeo Jin can’t like each other, but the word love was thrown in the last episode which kind of gave me whiplash.

So as I hit play I’m nervous, but hopefully Yong Pal continues to surprise me (in a good way) and puts my mind at ease.

5-Line Recap: Yong Pal ep 7 – What a Juliet!

I just finished the latest episode of Virtual Bride and wow did it get me angry. The way the mother-in-laws behave on this show is just unbelievable. I’m not married, but I seriously pray that I don’t have to deal with mother-in-law drama when it eventually happens. The frustrated part about this is that the mother-in-laws complained about how their in-laws treated them, but instead of stopping the cycle they continue it.

Anyways, Virtual Bride it’s a fun show, but right now it’s Yong Pal time and I’m sure that once I finish watching episode seven my spirits will go up. I’m really interested in seeing how the hospital theme will continue considering everything that’s happened. Guess we’ll see.

5 – Line Recap:

1. Tae Hyun slowly makes his way to the OR to revive Snowpunzel, since this isn’t a fairy tale and true love’s kiss doesn’t work here.

The body used for surgery still doesn’t look good, but at least it’s not super yellow like before. After using the same injection that he gave the gangster back in episode 2. It’s only a temporary fix though, because he’s losing blood fast and stupidly takes on another surgery even though he really shouldn’t.

I know that nurse respects Tae Hyun a lot, but she should have read the room and noticed the pool of blood forming on his shirt before asking him to do an X-Ray.

As for Snsowpunzel, considering how she’s original a Juliet character she probably won’t come out of her ‘death spell’ until Tae Hyun is at the brink of death. That’s the type of person Juliet is. She waits till her prince is dead or almost dead before coming back to life. Tae Hyun keeps trying to resuscitate her, but I’m left wondering how much damage that is causing to his injury and hers s as well. I mean, her neck is still cut open and he’s applying a lot of pressure to her chest.

yong pal 2

Just as I predicted, Tae Hyun passes out due to blood loss and then, and only then, does our Snowpunzel’s vitals kick in. Tsk, what a Juliet!

Death Note Live Action ep 7 – Light becomes Gollum

Death Note ep 7

This was meant to be out last week, but life got in the way. And by life, I mean I got hooked on playing a game on my tablet…It’s funny when things like that happens. In any case, sorry for the delay.

5–Line Recap:

1. L still suspects Light, since there’s no definite proof that he isn’t Kira.

Say what you will, but L is still smart even though he doesn’t fully understand what is truly going on. Since he’s still not certain if Light is Kira or not, he uses a failsafe plan. He handcuffs Light to himself. Whether this will prove it to him or strengthen their bonds of friendship isn’t certain yet, but it is funny.

With that out of the way, the Kira Investigation Unit can deal with the current Kira; some high ranking executive who is working with the Yotsuba Japan Group.

Light now wants to catch Kira, so L unties him and they shake hands once again.
