Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 8 Recap

UncontrollablyFond_08_33

Ji Tae is a coward. I am SO FRUSTRATED. But at the same time we are reaching the point where No Eul is starting to become cognizant of her feelings for one of the guys, and allowing it to wash over her. I guess it’s about time since we’re nearly halfway through the show. Somehow the documentary has been left forgotten though.

Wanted: Episodes 9-10 Recap

Wanted_10_02

When I said I wanted the stakes raised, I didn’t expect it to include a whole new element and twist to the show. We are no closer to finding out who the real kidnapper is, and now the show is giving us a new element to play with: the kidnapper’s very own “Wanted” fan club. I’m doing a double header today because I couldn’t sit down and write a recap for each episode. I needed to know what happened first. (So, also sorry for the lateness on this!)

Wanted: Episode 8 Recap

Wanted_08_03

This episode was a doozy. It’s really amping up plot wise, but somehow the directing and editing is all over the place. I think the writer knows what he wants, but isn’t very good at communicating how it needs to be executed. And then the director and the editor are not very good in making a seamless episode that isn’t confusing timeline wise. A simple fade in and fade out would go a long way…

Complaints on the editing aside, this episode was a lot more exciting than I thought it’d be. Regardless of the show’s cancellation, the kidnapper’s still sending missions.

Wanted: Episode 7 Recap

The plot thickens… At first it really seemed like the mastermind behind the kidnapping wanted to expose normal people’s wrongdoings. But now, things have intensified to the point where the mastermind has a bigger goal, and a real grudge against Hye In and her former husband.

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 3 Recap

UncontrollablyFond_03_01

This drama is a bit of a slow burn. Not that it’s a bad thing, but it has a simple story that requires a lot of buildup. We alternate between the past and the present, with every action in the present being defined by something in the past. So yes, more flashbacks. But don’t worry, present No Eul is okay.

UPDATED: KCON LA 2016 – See You There!

kconbanner_2016

Update: Now including my panel schedule!

And yet another year where I get to go to KCON! I feel so especially lucky and grateful for this as I was hoping I’d get to go but never really sure.

This past weekend was KCON NY – and if you happened to be there I’m sure it was a blast. But I couldn’t go as I had prior obligations that same weekend. (Wedding in Vermont – equally as fun, but definitely no K-pop at the reception.) I was pretty sad I missed out, but I’m looking forward to KCON LA – after all, that’s like the home base for KCON and sure to be the biggest party of all!
