6.9 - Review of Episode 9 of Gyeongseong Creature

Today, we’ll be discussing Episode 9 of Gyeongseong Creature, the hit K Drama on Netflix starring Park Seo-joon as Jang Tae-sang, Han So-hee as Yoon Chae-ok, Wi Ha-jun as Kwon Jun-taek, Kim Soo-hyun as Lady Maeda, Ji Woo as Myeong-ja, Jo Han-chul as Yoon Joong-won, and Kim Hae-sook as Nawol daek. We discuss:

  • How Jang Tae-sang and Yoon Chae-ok are reunited and they manage to sneak a few moments of joy together.

  • How Yoon Chae-ok doesn’t want to be forgotten and she makes Jang Tae-sang promise that they will always remember each other.

  • The amazing kiss between Jang Tae-sang and Yoon Chae-ok!

  • Jang Tae-sang’s plan to blow up Ongseong Hospital.

  • How the Japanese control the news; the killings by Myeong-ja aren’t reported until Ishikawa is dead and then he is reported as having died honorably while going after the Joseon serial killer.

  • How Yoon Chae-ok was on a suicide mission when she killed Dr. Ichiro. She can’t see a future, while Jang Tae-sang is motivated by a better future.

  • After so many years of looking for her mom, now that she’s found her, Yoon Chae-ok can’t imagine a future life, and she certainly can’t imagine a life filled with happiness.

  • How Lady Maeda didn’t seem too upset when she heard about her husband’s condition; in fact, she asked Dr. Ichiro to put an end to his misery.

  • Yoon Joong-won has gone back into the hospital to end his wife’s misery; he lets himself be imprisoned, but then manages to get away from his captors and is now loose in the hospital.

  • Nobody can find Yoon Chae-ok but we learn that she is at Lady Maeda’s house.

  • Jang Tae-sang has figured out that Lady Maeda has Yoon Chae-ok, and he challenges her, saying he’ll never stop looking for Yoon Chae-ok.

  • When Lady Maeda tells Jang Tae-sang about his staff’s betrayals, he counters that his people would not have had to betray their loved ones if it weren’t for the crimes of the Japanese.

  • Jang Tae-sang confesses to Mrs. Nawol that he knew about her betrayal a short time after his mother died, but she doesn’t need forgiveness because it wasn’t her fault.

  • Yoon Chae-ok is taken to Ongseong Hospital and the creature breaks through the grate.

  • The K Drama elements in this episode, including lots of crying, more information about the connection between Lady Maeda and Seishin from the past, the amazing kiss, and the funeral for Commissioner Ishikawa.

  • A bit of information about Japanese funerals and the expected behavior of guests.

  • The show we will recap and analyze in Season 7 of K Drama Chat!

  1. Hello Ladies,
    It is me (Mr Queen commenter) I am back now that you are wrapping S6, which I am afraid I didn't listen to for reasons I stated previously.
    But, I checked the last few minutes of E9 hoping to find out what you have decided for S7, and I am really happy to find out it is "Queen of Tears" because I was planning to watch it. I am really excited for the forthcoming experience of having to listen to a currently airing show.
    But, can I just say that I think you should give yourself the right to drop any show if you are not liking it. From the bits and pieces you tell about your life, you sound like two very successful ladies, and this podcast is just a hobby rather than a job or career. So, a hobby shouldn't be a chore. It should be something to be enjoyed, and I am pretty sure 99% of your listners would understand that.

  2. Thank you so much for your supportive comment! We really appreciate your understanding. It is certainly a gamble doing a show where we don't know where it's going to end up. Another difficult part of this is sometimes shows will have a lull in the middle, then pick up being interesting an episode or two later and we just won't know this until we power through! For me, I think I would drop a show (which I do when watching for fun) if the premise just starts being completely unrealistic or if I just don't empathize with the main characters. Doing a show in real time is a new adventure for us. We got close doing Gyeongseong Creature, but since it dropped all its episodes over a couple weeks, we did see most of it by the time we decided to cover it. It was luck that Queen Tears coincided with the end of S6 for us. Here's to hoping that Queen of Tears comes through!

  3. Hold on! You'll drop a show "if the premise just starts being completely unrealistic?!" You realize you did 20 episodes about a 21st century man time traveling back into the body of a Joseon era Queen! LOL! I have my fingers crossed for Queen of Tears!

Today, we’ll be discussing Episode 5 of 25, 21, the hit K Drama on Netflix starring Kim Tae-ri as Na Hee-do and Nam Joo Hyuk as Baek Yi-jin. We discuss: The songs we heard during the recap: Their Friendship by Yoo Jong Hyun and Will by Byon Dong Wook. Ko Yu-rim’s decision to switch her nationality and fence for Russia because of her family’s financial troubles. Coach Yang’s efforts to secure the best deal for Ko Yu-rim and how devoted she is to Na Hee-do and Ko Yu-rim. How Sung Hee blames Baek Yi-jin for not managing the distance between himself and his friends. Now that he’s broken the story of Ko Yu-rim’s move to Russian, he is deeply unhappy and regretful. How the two most important people in Na Hee-do’s life, her mom and Baek Yi-jin, have hurt the third most important person in her life, Ko Yu-rim. We wonder if it would have made a difference if Baek Yi-jin had NOT been the first to break the story; what if he were second or third? How Na Hee-do and Baek Yi-ji as a couple are so di

5.6 - Review of Episode 6 of Mr. Queen

Today, we’ll be discussing Episode 6 of Mr. Queen, the hit K Drama on Netflix starring Shin Hye-sun as Kim So-yong, Kim Jung-hyun as King Cheojong, Seol In-ah as Jo Hwa-jin, Na In-woo as Kim Byeong-in, and Choi Jin-hyuk as Jang Bong-hwan.  We discuss: The songs we featured during the recap: No Touch by Howl and Venus by Moon Jong-up. How this episode was aptly named Between Understanding and Misunderstanding; there are so many misunderstandings between nearly everyone in the palace, but especially between the King and the Queen. That things are very complicated for Jang Bong-hwan since jumping into the lake clearly won’t bring him back to modern day Korea. When the King saved the Queen from the lake, something changed. The King now wants the Queen to live and he wants to try to understand her. The King and Queen agree to do No Touch but they have very different understandings of what No Touch means. The Jo family tries to depose the Queen but the King shows a different side of his char

We discuss: How Jang Tae-sang was able to escape from Ongseong Hospital by getting the better of the Japanese soldier and holding up Lady Maeda to let him leave with her out of the hospital. Lady Maeda’s motivations for nursing Jang Tae-sang back to health. Lady Maeda calling Seishin, the creature, sensei or teacher. Commissioner Ishikawa confronting his wife about what is happening at Ongseong Hospital and what she did to Akiko.

How Mr. Gu was tortured and now we understand Mrs. Nawol’s warning about betraying your love
