Oohlala Spouses Episode 17 Recap

So, this jacket happens. And somehow, the Bellhop is able to pull it off. Awesome.
  Definitely the beginning of the end. It feels like things are pretty much wrapped up, but there's still one more episode. Also, I have to eat my words (at least some of them).

Oohlala Spouses Episode 16 Recap

  This episode reminded me of the things I love about this show. Too bad there aren't more of those moments in the 2nd half.

Oohlala Spouses Episode 15 Recap

  Yay! I finally managed to write a short recap. The downside is that it probably indicates a growing apathy for this show (which I still really want to love). Only 3 more episodes! I can do it! Aja! Aja!

Can We Get Married? Impressions Episodes 3&4

  If you want to see my initial thoughts on this drama, here's the link.
  Episodes 3 and 4 had so. Much. Drama. And not enough of my favorite characters. Jung Hoon and Hye Yoon break up and cry buckets of tears while drinking buckets of soju. Then they get back together because she pretends she got hit by a car and is severely injured. Can you say manipulative/borderline sociopathic? Plus there's all the manipulating she does with the wedding plans, even manipulating Jung Hoon's mom by pretending to let her manipulate them. And Hye Yoon is being manipulated into all that by her mom. In addition the bickering and fighting between the "lovebirds" also reached new levels of making everyone uncomfortable.

Oohlala Spouses Episode 14 Recap

  An episode with lots of dancing. Plus, one of my concerns from last episode gets resolved. (Unfortunately it's not by burning that hideous outfit.)

Oohlala Spouses Episode 12 Recap

  This episode really feels like a major turning point in our series. So much happens and there's just so much development. Which, this late in the game, could cause problems in the resolution. But, Oohlala Spouses got a 2-episode extension, and I have faith that this director is going to give us a nice, tidy package at the end, so I'm not worried about things being left unresolved. I am left with an increase of love for this drama, though.

Oohlala Spouses Episode 11 Recap

  Hyun Woo really starts to make his move this episode. Awesome. Let's keep that going, 'kay show?
  But, really, this is Yeo Ok's episode, as she starts to reevaluate what she wants from her life going forward, and decides to pick herself up and move on.

Can We Get Married? Thoughts and Reactions

  I started watching this drama out of curiosity, thinking I might recap it. Especially since it stars Sung Joon (Lie to Me) and Jung So Min (Mischievous Kiss). But after 2 episodes, I'm not really sure how much of it I'll actually watch. I'm curious enough to watch again next week, but I don't know how long that will last. But, for as long as I do manage to watch, I wanted to share my thoughts. I'll probably do it in 2-episode bunches.

Oohlala Spouses Episode 10 Recap

  This episode is an exploration of heartbreak. Yet there's a glimmer of hope shining at the end. Just have some tissues ready.

Oohlala Spouses Episode 9 Recap

  This is a big episode. So much emotional business intercut with the funny. It's actually perfect, and things move forward several steps. Now, if we can just get some more Hyun Woo/Yeo Ok action. *Plotting to myself while rubbing hands together* Also, there were so many great screenshots, so expect many pics.
