Strongest K Pop Survival Episode 10 Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)! Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

Overall, this was a satisfying episode because we get no dramatic forgiveness. Instead, Seung Yeon is made to face the consequences of her own actions and Woo Hyun makes her realize the true extent to which she’s affected everyone by posing as a guy. Moreover, the team grows together one step more by learning to forgive and protect the secrets of each other. It’s nice to see the bunch that was so disagreeable and brittle at the beginning grow up to think beyond themselves. What’s best is that they’ve shown us the growth and team spirit of each and every member throughout the series. For now, onto the recap! 😉

Episode 10 Recap:

Woo Hyun leaves while the other members wonder at the truth they’ve just been told. Team Leader Han asks him to go out with her, she’ll explain everything but Hyun Sung cuts in. If there’s an explanation, it had better happen with everyone around and asks Seung Yeon if it is true. Tae Gun still can’t believe it and entreats her to say it aint so but all Seung Yeon can say is, “I’m sorry”.

Episode 9 Recap:

Woo Hyun draws out a drink from his fridge and chugs it down, thinking over what he just witnessed. Finally he mutters, “What’s wrong with those two?” Seung Yeon lies awake at night staring at a sleeping Ji Woo, her mind reeling from witnessing Woo Hyun’s kiss to Ji Woo’s confession. Finally, she heads out to a nearby convenience store. But Ji Woo isn’t asleep and follows her. She’s in a frenzy and doesn’t know how to react at all. She looks into the mirror and realizes she can probably never compete with In Young looking like this anyway. Meanwhile, Chang Minis going over some photographs from Seung Yeon’s old school and catches sight of her, complete with the long hair and girly dress. Now he’s gotten certain evidence. He doesn’t let anyone else know just yet, knowing the company will fire her the moment they find out and wonder what Seung Yeon is thinking.

Episode 12 Recap:

Ga Young returns to Young Young and is surprised to see the machines missing and asks everyone what’s wrong. They tell her the prosecutor’s office has taken everything and wonder where she’s been all day. Ga Young heads inside to Young Gul’s office and its trashed with most of his belongings taken in. She looks around in worry and tears up. See, this is the reason I watch this drama, right here! She is such a good actress and can emote out emotions so well it’s a pleasure watching her, feeling with her and knowing her struggles! At the prosecutor’s office, Young Gul insists he shouldn’t be here since he did nothing wrong. He tells them of his relationship with Michael and plays down his enmity with Jae Hyuk. The charges against him are such: he threatened J Design’s Anna and stole her designs. The prosecutor’s office has been given the scene in the elevator as part of evidence. The prosecutor tells him not to make things difficult for them both-as in, confess up instead of beating around the bush. Jae Hyuk is on his way home when his phone rings-a call from Ga Young, but he ignores it.

Fashion King Episode 11 Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)! Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

It’s hard to put a liking on these characters since they’re all changing shades every other scene and that in some instances is not a good thing! We’ve got Young Gul, who treats Ga Young with care until her old boss turns up for a business venture which he accepts, despite her insistence against it and who frees his hand from hers the moment they are both face to face with Anna. One minute, he’s showering her with care, the next he’s telling her to mind her own business. Jae Hyuk is also trying to sail in two boats at the same time. He doesn’t want to let go of the woman he seemingly loved in the beginning and brought back from America with a promise of protection and care although it seems to be more a not-letting-you-go-because-of-Young-Gul and he also doesn’t want to let the other woman in his life, Ga Young go. From some of the treatments he’s meted out to her, it seems he thinks of her as the shiny new toy he can’t quite fathom while on other occasions, he’s so gently and caring, baring his soul, one is tormented by it. Anna, the woman is still an enigma and definitely not a pleasant one! Ga Young, the poor girl is being dragged here and there and crushed under every other person she comes in contact with. Will they ever stop playing soccer with her at her expense and what is clearly not ‘for her sake?’ Aaaaaaggggghhhh!! How to make sense of it all?!

Yeah, it’s a rough watch!

Episode 8 Recap:

So Seung Yeon doesn’t turn up for the competition between the two M2 Junior teams and President Hyun Suk refuses to listen to her team’s performance. However, as he’s walking away, the leader speaks up to Hyun Suk to give them a chance.

“Since we’re a team, we’re taking responsibility. Because of one person’s problem, we cannot give up on the team. We three will perform without Seung Yeon. Give us a chance to protect our team.”

His outburst brings applause from his competitors and Hyun Suk allows it. They perform while Seung Yeon is at home, begging her father to listen to her. Mid performance, Woo Hyun walks out even though he likes the performance but is wondering where Seung Yeon is and is about to call her up when In Young catches up with him and asks to speak to him. She wants a favor as a friend. She’ll give up the album but wants something in return. He tells her he’s wondering whether she’s just shameless or wrong in the head. Haha! His manager comes up and tells him Team Leader Han wants to see him. He leaves In Young stewing and she mutters again, “Let’s wait and see. You’ll come back to me.”

Episode 10 Recap:

Jae Hyuk gets ready for work and remembers Anna’s words from their fight yesterday. It seems the words weigh heavy on his guilt until he also remembers the elevator scene and cannot help but frown. Young Gul comes back to the shop and pauses for a moment outside before straightening his appearance and heading in. Inside, he gets the cold shoulder from Ga Young and asks her if she’s angry. She mocks him-why should she be angry at the President over his private life? He realizes she’s angry but heads into his office as the office ladies are also standing there.

Dropping Equator Man Recaps

Yes and I’m sorry! I am dropping the series because I can’t bring myself to watch it anymore. I’m loving the concept and theme of it and it certainly is a delight to watch in terms of cinematography but its not my cup of tea right now. It’s got too much darkness for my taste and I felt the last few episodes were a little slow. However, that may be since I am not really connecting with it right now. So, I’m sorry but I’m dropping the recaps. I was planning on doing Episode 8 but got too caught up in other work and couldn’t bring myself to finally watch the episode. A happy run for the drama to those who are and will continue watching it! Have fun folks! ^^

 

P.S. You can follow the drama still at Dramabeans and/or The Talking Cupboard!

Episode 9 Recap:

A sleeping Young Gul gets THE call! Even he can’t believe its Michael. Outside, Ga Young is having trouble sleeping and hears Young Gul on the phone. She heads into his office and he’s at his desk and agreeing to something with Michael. They set up a date to meet next week-Monday in USA! He already has a commitment that day but intends to blow it off. After he puts down the phone, Ga Young asks him about the call with a shaky voice and the tremor in Young Gul’s voice matches her own. It’s a wonderful moment for both of them. Young Gul heads outside and watches the clothes on display there before turning back to Ga Young and taking her face in his hands he tells her the thing he wants most is to share it with Ga Young in the form of a proper place to live.
