The pond has turned out quite well, Mo Yuan thought and surveyed his work with a considerable amount of pride. It’s actually rather small, Golden Dragon grumbled quietly, but I should be able to moisten my skin here nonetheless on very hot summer days. Mo Yuan chuckled. It was so pleasant to be in harmony with his true form, and not having to suppress it.

Trotwood: Well, I am back to recapping. Cubic recaps are on hiatus (I’ll get back to those in the summer—if summer ever comes), and I swore I wouldn’t do anything else until then. However, this drama really grabbed me. Not for the reasons you would imagine. I am/was watching several other Japanese dramas while watching this: Aishi Girl, Final Cut, May I Blackmail You, Five, Unnatural, and Repeat. There was more discussion of Repeat than this show on my twitter feed, and I actually enjoyed Unnatural more consistently than this show. However, I rarely have a show that leads me to complete rage and then basically seduces me back to being its best friend again. This was that show.

There was quite a lot of buzz about this show when it came out because of the cast. I won’t go into the background of each, but they are top notch and have many devoted fans. Our lead, Kimura Takuya, has been in the business since the late 80s, he is a boyband member turned award-winning actor. And don’t get me …

kakashi: We get to know this uncle Jong-Yong for a bit. He's a real sleazebag!
JoAnne: He seems so sloppy and naturally broke, there's no way he can be husband of the other daughter-in-law. There must be three brothers, right?

Snap.

Menacingly, a fan closed right in front of her nose, sending a sharp gush of air into her face. Shao Wan’s feet skidded on the polished floor as she came to an immediate stop, her heart drumming rapidly in her chest.

The Third Prince stepped out from behind a red pillar. For someone whose face usually showed either boredom or quiet amusement, he looked very grim.

JoAnne:  If I squint at the trees against the sky, Trot, I can see the green haze!  The red buds are very fat along the highway, too. Has the snow melted where you are yet?
Trotwood: It was warm today! In the 60s, so the last of the snow piles have melted. However, there is warning of ice in a couple of days. I'm not going to look for real positive weather until May. That way I won't be disappointed. I feel as though I may be in a drama lull for awhile. Most of the shows that I am watching have ended, are about to end, or are getting subbed very slowly (my Japanese dramas), and I'm not excited about the replacements at least not yet. Hopefully, this will allow time for my recapping project to get into full swing.
SakiVI: It's too hot for me. I like winter. 
So do I. I hate being hot, but this has been a long, painful winter. And I really don't want to shovel again. I'll put up with scrapping ice again like I had to do this week, but I'm tired of shoveling and…

My eyes crack open a slit, then shut again.

The sun is beating down today like it’s hellbent on settling a grudge.

A slight breeze skims across my cheeks. When it stills, the coolness is replaced by hot air that wraps over me like a blanket. My body shifts and I feel every spot where my skin has stuck to my robe, the worst being my back and the underside of my legs.

No.

“Seventeenth.”

Just a few more minutes, Senior, she groaned, I’m too tired.

Rich Family's Son - Episode 8 (KimJiCap)

kakashi: Well. I wonder who the biggest fool in this really is. Tae-il? I'm voting for Tae-il. Sorry, Trot, I don't like him at all.
Trotwood: I know. You didn't like him before. Jo doesn't either. That's not true! No one does but me. He will turn evil because his heart will be broken even though he clearly has jumped in front of a train here thinking there was a possibility even though she has only ever admired him as a mentor and friend. Sigh. Personality wise though, I like him better than our cutie Golden retriever lead, who, as you know I find annoying enough to want to punch in the face, but clearly I'm in the minority. They are really setting up this second lead to be really boring from the beginning and not even a challenge to anyone. What is his point really in this plot then but to turn evil later? Sigh again. Can I still hold out for bromance? Because these two (2nd and Golden Retriever) are the only two who seem to care about the step mom at all. Br…

Clang!

With full force, Mo Yuan slammed the pickaxe down. Sparks flew to all sides and the jolt from the impact snaked up his arms like Celestial lightning.

kakashi: It's funny, this is my first KDrama of this genre in a long time, but unlike so many of my friends, I don't hate it at all... I don't even dislike people a lot. Okay, maybe a little.
JoAnne:  I don't hate it either, and every time I watch an episode I am surprised by that all over again - not because the episode is bad but because I'm just so used to him being in incredibly makjang stories that don't really get good until half way through, if ever.
Trotwood: Hmm. Maybe that should be my plan. I remember not joining Jang Bori until episode 30 or so. I'm not going to have a lot of time anyway in the next month or so. Maybe I'll leave and rejoin later. Maybe then I won't dislike everyone so much and stop being the cranky ahjumma of the recaps.
I know you're busy so I won't attempt to sway your decision, but just know that I tend to love the cranky ahjumma voice in our recaps, no matter who is playing the part.
