Bear with me cuz this is going to be one of the oddest posts I’ve ever made. Even Fanderay was confused about what I was planning to do with this post. The thing is last night I had this nagging feeling something isn’t adding up. You are going to be shocked I did this kind of research, but like I said – it bugged me so I went through past recaps and found out what I wanted.
So far I have only watched 3 family dramas that I can think of, but finished only two of them from start to finish. I watched all of Smile You and CYHMH, but Highkick season 1 and 2 only sporadically cuz those are like over a 100 episodes each season. I always knew that Smile You had been extended, but I never realized it was supposed to have been only a 30 episode drama originally. No wonder when it ended at E45, there were a few episodes where I was wondering why the story didn’t seem to zip along as much as the earlier ones. I pray that doesn’t happen to OB since it was set to be 50 episodes from the start. Rumors that it may be extended make me nervous.
If you haven’t guessed by now what all this rambling is leading up to – I will just say it. When are scenes like these going to come out already?
If we can’t have any of those, I will settle for this one – minus the eyes open if possible, but not going to hold my breath. Knowing J, her eyes will be wide open I bet. Isn’t there a wager going on about that?
This one is probably out of the question, but it was still a riot to watch. :)
Aside from differences in personality of all these drama characters, does anyone else wonder why OB is taking so long to move their love lines along compared to the couples in CYHMH and SY? Almost 30 episodes seems kind of long to make the audience wait. Not just J and TH, but also TP and Y, MS and TS, and of course SY and TB take one step forward and now they will be taking a step back cuz TB found out SY went behind his back to loan his dad money. I used to say that it was cuz OB revolves around the family and the farm so of course this whole deal with the contract being stolen and then returned had to take precedence, but now that it has, we get more complications at every turn. I went back to my recaps for CYHMH and discovered DJ and W’s first peck happened on E14 and then a proper kiss on E20. On Smile You, after E13, they never really stopped. That family drama had more romantic moments than all of OB, CYHMH, and Highkick put together. At this point, I think even wishing for more than just one peck might be asking too much of J and TH. TB and SY I have complete faith in to have more “lovey dovey” scenes in the future. This is mean, but I sort of hope we are spared any of those moments from MS and TS. I really despise TS for being the worst dad ever and I think MS deserves better. As for TP and Y, I still say it’s never going to happen – just do not see the chemistry there at all.
Even if none of the love lines are going smooth and steady for the next two episodes, I’m not choosy – I will even jump for joy if J and the mom reconcile at this point cuz I love that relationship almost as much as J and TH anyway. None of this rambling means I love OB any less. On the contrary, for someone like me to even post something like this speaks volumes about how much I am enamored with this drama.
After all is said and done, if Joowon sings on the OST for OB, I would be willing to overlook how long it’s taking for the love stories to get going. :)
Additional bit of info:
Right now in Korea, Joowon’s face is everywhere – on the side of buses, billboards on subway stations, side of buildings, and movie theaters cuz his movie comes out soon. There is no getting away from this guy’s face even if you wanted to. Last month it was YAI, but this month it’s Joowon. No complaints at all mind you. :)
*Here is hoping for E29 and E30 to make some strides and bring us one step closer to reconciliation for J and TH. Like you guys, I am dying to know why KJ got that bloody lip from TH and what his motive was for asking her to date.
