Yup, since I haven’t been getting out the recaps regularly and now not at all, its an indicator that I have indeed dropped the series. I may do an end of series review for it but for now I am discontinuing the recaps since the pace is at times too slow and so many aspects of it are so raw and undeveloped that they cannot help but take the fun out of the rest. What I admired at the beginning were the main characters but now even their charms are being tested and their characters are not that strong and compelling. Overall, it is a fun series and I plan to watch it once its done (Yes, I’ll drop it now and watch it once it is complete) and then, if I can, I will write up a review about it.
For those who still love the story or are following the drama, have fun! I hope it brings a satisfactory ending to the story and when I do watch it again, I can find more pros than cons! 🙂
I just love the shot above-it’s such a perfect portrait of the way things are. Tae Kang is always there, one step behind her, helping her out with a smile or a push, whatever it is she needs. As the saying goes, it’s the little gestures that matter, hehe!
Tae Kang is woken up the officers and now in a much more somber state, he looks around and asks Choong Baek, “What trouble did I get into again?” Choong Baek points to Dad. As soon as they’re out of the police station, dad starts questioning him-what’s his relationship with Ji An? What was with all those words? Is he dating her? Tae Kang tells Dad that’s not the problem right now. He turns on Choong Baek and asks how he could’ve kept silent about all this but Choong Baek has had a difficult time himself, plus Dad forbid him from saying anything. Dad suggests they return home for now and Tae Kang go to work.
The truth comes all out for some while others take a different trajectory. Ji A’n’s horizon opens more and more regarding her life now that she has decided to keep the baby and how things will change for her. It’s not just like buying or designing a new pair of shoes and being done with it-rather, it’s a responsibility that increases day by day and takes more and more of your life, not necessarily in a bad sense.
Episode 7 Recap:
Eun Sung confronts Ji An-why did she have to include him, tell him about it all? How can he stand to see her again, how can he like her after this? Ji An tells him it’s a good thing-she calls him a nice person and at her parents house, when she saw him with her parents, she had a thought, “If ever, if ever I am to marry, it would be good if the man were him!”
Highlights from Episode 5 & 6 of I Do I Do with comments!
Ji An’s reaction:
Although Ji An can’t believe it at first, the Ultrasound shows that she’s already eight weeks along. She staggers out of the hospital, breathing hard and by the time she reaches home, she’s in a stunned state, trying to distract her thoughts from memories of that night with Tae Kang. The first thought n solution that comes to her, thanks to Jun Hee as well, is to go for the easy way out-an abortion. When she does consult a doctor for it, her nonchalant attitude get her even more on the edge.
Sorry for the delay! Here’s episode 4! I’ll do episode 5 & 6 together as a review since I’m already behind! Hope you guys enjoy the recap!
Episode 4 Recap:
Ji An is taken by surprise at Eun Sung’s peck on the cheek which he claims is an official mark, offering his own cheek in case she finds the arrangement unfair. Ji An asks him, “How many girls fell for this?” Pffttt. Hehe. He says it might have been a dozen or maybe twenty but she words it clearly-‘he’s a player!’ At that, he makes a wry retort about her menopause “It’s not because you’re dried up?” but immediately apologizes and tells her, “But you know something? You look sexy when you get mad.” She tells him this isn’t any fun and can’t get any words out when he gets to the sexy part. He promises to revive her ‘dried up’ dating cells in one month.
Sorry for the delay in the recaps but I was too busy with other work and things to do here and there that I couldn’t get down to the episodes and watch them. I finally got to it now hope you guys enjoy it! Oh, n may I say, I just adore Kim Sun Ah in this role somehow, even though I’ve not been a huge fan of hers!
Episode 3 Recap:
So Tae Kang has won the competition that Ji An’s company held (How awesome that she’s the one who backed his shoe not knowing it was his, hehe) and she freaks out even more when she hears he is applying for work at the company as well. She confronts him and demands he withdraw his application-he’s got no qualifications anyway but he pays her little heed as he counters-even if he doesn’t have the experience and is so lacking, he’s the only one who’ll be shamed so what’s it to her?
Is life complete without friends or a loving family? Does success and fame mean we are happy and have everything? Or is it just another facade for loneliness? We see much more vulnerability yet spine in both characters and the journey just keeps getting more interesting!
Episode 2 Recap:
Tae Kang runs away when he recognizes Ji An-he knows she’s a shoe designer and hence understands her reaction at seeing the shoes but somehow or the other, she catches him or he is caught by the police because in the next scene they are both at the police station. She demands to know who is making and selling those shoes but he gives out a flimsy excuse that he found the bag and picked it up and hence knows nothing. An angry Ji An is ready to strike him but the policeman steps in and points out his ridiculous excuse-did he think he was collecting garbage for recycling?
Light, upbeat, a simple yet convincing storyline and nice developments! I’ll follow this show, if only to get my fix of a Noona romance! 😉
Episode 1 Recap:
We open to see Hwang Ji An running away from something and as she races down the stairs, her shoe comes off. Next, she’s holding both shoes in her hands and runs out the building-only to scowl at the sun since its shining so brightly. Elsewhere in a bank, Park Tae Kang is being dragged in by his father, and by his ear, haha! At the bank, dad hands over his identity card and father demands they remove his name.
