@manyearsago, thanks so much for the translations for this news on page 258. Do you by any chance know if this article has a title?
romantic comedy “7th Grade Civil Servant” finished its
airing, its story line was not forcibly established.......... it was
disappointing but still alright
7th Level Civil Servant ep 19 recap full version
SW and G moves quickly into the room and there they find
Mirae looking as if she has been expecting them all this while. While, we
viewers certainly weren’t expecting Mirae. If anyone lost their pants betting
on this outcome, I’d recommend any tailor except that of G’s. I have never seen
such an ill-fitting pair of pants on someone whose assets are quite legendary.
SW and G point their guns at Mirae who seems a tad amused.
Maybe she called for room service. G checks the room and it’s clear. Eh…did he
check if little JJ is soaking in the bathtub, still waiting for his towel?
After giving Mirae a pat down, SW checks her bag and finds nothing too. Smiling
smugly, Mirae sits down in the armchair. SW asks where is Choi Woo Jin and
Mirae doesn’t answer her, saying that maybe he is not that far away. Cuts to little
JJ walking intensely down the hotel corridor. Who let this boy out of the
bathtub? Huh? Who gave him the towel? Meanwhile the 3 are sitting down,
chatting. G asks Mirae how could she keep up the pretense all this while? Me
thinks it wasn’t difficult. She just had to go for facials, manicures, hair
salon and look pretty plotting much ado about nothing in bars and cars. But
Mirae retorts it was the country who made her into what she has become. Then
she asks why aren’t they arresting her? G says they will. Mirae says they have
no charge against her to which G answers that Mirae is an accomplice involved
in the death of a civil servant, they have the witness and evidence. SW starts
to ask about Mirae’s family. Mirae asks if she is curious. I wonder too. SW
looks too emotionally vested. I really don’t understand why is this popping up
now. SW asks Mirae if it’s true that her entire family was wiped out and Mirae
curtly tells her to find out the answers herself.
Little JJ stops at the door. I am admiring his side profile
here, such beautiful lashes he has. He does his brooding pose for the benefit
of the viewers before he opens the door. Or so it seems. Inside the room, G and
SW are alerted when doorbell rings. G asks Mirae to answer it. And they both point
their guns at her back while she catwalks to the door. Lo and behold, it’s not
our bathtub boy, it’s the bathtub old boy, the Director himself. Meanwhile,
little JJ has stepped into another room which is all empty except a 4 poster
bed. He takes off his jacket and flings it on the bed. Then he slumps into the
armchair and brood. Andwae!!!!!! You’ve got to take off more clothes and not
let that 4 poster bed go to waste!
Director steps into the room and finds SW and G pointing
their guns at him. He asks them to put their weapons down. He remarks that they
aren’t personnel who are supposed to be armed, who issued them weapons? G tells
him that he should know that Mirae is in cahoots with Choi Woo Hyuk and the
Director asks them back if they suspect he is in cahoots with Mirae then? He
tells them to put down their guns again but SW says they won’t till they get an
explanation from him. Director says that he is still on the case of Choi and
Mirae is helping him then he makes a side glance to Mirae, signaling to her to
back him up. Mirae sarcastically says that even if she wants to help, the kids
aren’t behaving. Mirae asks if they should all join in the meeting since G and
SW have so many questions. Director shouts at them to get out when they show no
sign of moving.
G and SW have no choice but to drop their weapons and haul
their butts out. SW is shocked and wonders what’s going to happen now. G says
that they should apply what they have learnt i.e. if they are not certain who
the enemy is, treat everyone as a potential enemy. G says both the Director and
WS know Choi Heong Soo so that once they contact each other the following day, it
will be the final showdown. Eh…how did G come to this conclusion? I can only
deduce that it’s the writer speaking to give us heads up since the next episode
is the grand finale. SW calls YS who is shocked that the Director turned up at
the scene, she calls them to back down immediately. DH also gets the
Director asks Mirae if she intends to pull everyone down
together. Mirae tells him to hand over WS but Director insists that he is still
trying to find out where WS is. Mirae says she need to confirm if that’s the
truth. Director says that this is how it works, he will not have access to information
not intended for him. Mirae asks if that’s how he has risen to the position all
these years and held on to it? That no one knows his past? Director smiles and
tells her that if she intends to blackmail him, she has chosen the wrong person.
Mirae will have none of that and tells him that he has 2 days to comply
otherwise she will find other ways. She adds that G and SW seem very curious to
know what had happened in the past. Director warns Mirae but tells her to meet
up in 2 days’ time. Right after he steps out, Director calls DH and asks about
his meeting with G. DH says that he is on his way now. Director tells him to
cancel the meeting and leave it to him to handle G.
Meanwhile SM wakes up from a catnap and her laptop pings her
of little JJ’s location at Emblem Hotel. Eh? Didn’t that happened in the
previous episode when little JJ checked in? I don’t understand why SM looks
surprised as if she is seeing it for the first time. Did she wake up from a
slumber or amnesia? Equally baffling, Mirae knows that little JJ is being
tracked and tells him to get out of the hotel room immediately. Wait! Why did
he check in in the first place? Brood on the armchair? He hasn’t used the
bathtub or the 4 poster bed!
Back at the NIS office, YS has a meeting with the agents. SM
reports that little JJ checked out soon and there must be a leak in intel. G
says it’s the Director. DH says that it’s impossible because the Director is
working with Mirae to catch little JJ. G says that Mirae and little JJ are
tight, no way they can betray each other. DH asks how did G come to this conclusion.
G says that Mirae and little JJ’s fathers are friends. DH is annoyed that they
kept the information from him and YS calls him out for bickering. YS says
before they capture him, they themselves might be arrested. She tells G to
reveal all that he knows. G says he doesn’t know the details except that it has
something to do with WS’s mission in the past. YS demands to know about that
mission but neither G nor SW would budge on the information. SM gets angry too
and leaves in a huff followed by DH. After they left, YS presses G and SW
saying that at least they can tell her. SW says she needs to get WS’s
permission first. Upon hearing this, YS is disappointed that they don’t even
trust her so she says they don’t need her anymore and she leaves too.
SW and G reaches home and they talk in the car. SW says it’s
better if they were to reveal it but G doesn’t think so. He says that they can’t
do it when they don’t even know the exact details and how can they let known
their suspicion that WS was involved in the annihilation of the 2 families. SW
agrees. Then G says that he can’t go home because his mother will nag at him,
he can’t go back to office either because the Director is after him. So when he
can’t take it any longer, he will hold her hand like this. While saying this, G
holds SW’s hand. He says he also wants her to feel that they are in this
together. SW says she has always felt that way. At this, G turns and looks more
intently at SW. Eh…are we leading into something here? Take off your seatbelts
first, shall we? Then G thanks SW and calls her “Kyung-Ja ssi” SW laughs and
bids him farewell and she steps out of the car. G smiles at her. WT* That’s it?
Not even a goodnight kiss? And is G to spend the night in the car? I cannot.
WS is awake lying on the hospital bed, his wife has fallen
asleep by his side His thoughts are still on his conversation with the Director
that fateful night and the Director’s damning words about sacrifice. Then, he
pulls his wife coat to cover her, I just wish he could reveal his condition to
her and make up.
G and Mom meet in the café. How come the blue colored drink is
missing this time round, oh are they promoting new flavor of the month? Mom
asks indignantly what sort of name is ‘Kyung Ja’ but G defends it saying it’s
cute. He says a person cannot be judged by their name. Mom doesn’t relent
saying that it’s a sign of one’s standard or rather the lack of. Mom is angry
that G is still speaking in their defense when he got his hair pulled. Mom
calls the family uneducated, lacking in manners and upbringing. She tells him
not to meet her again. G pouts like a small boy and flatly refuses. Mom
immediately suspects that he has done something with SW and asks if he has
committed any act that needs bearing of responsibility, meaning that he slept
with her. Okay for this drama, they could go on sleeping, literally and nothing
near the act that requires bearing responsibility ever happens. Mom meant to
ask has G had sex with SW? G stiffens up and says Yes. LOL. Gosh, if Mom ever
knew, sigh. Mom gets really mad and beats G. G gallantly says that since he has
given his heart to someone, he should bear responsibility. Mom is at her wits’
end. She calls SW a liar who wants to steal her son. G turns Mom’s words on
her, the one that she had said about Fate sneaking in like a thief and then he
tells her he won’t be back for days and scoots off. Meanwhile, SW’s Mom is
telling her the same thing, not to meet G again. Mom goes on about the cost of
the wine and says that she can’t be in a relationship with a guy whose family spends
money like that. She adds that G probably does nothing but sing and drink and
has no manners to boot. Not to mention, he airs his underwear in someone else’s
room. She ends off by telling her that she can only be with Master Gilro over
her dead body. Ignoring her mom most of the time and unable to get a word in
anyway, SW leaves some money for her mom to go back and goes off to work.
Strange, I wonder what happened to her Dad? No, no, not complaining…my bladder
is empty. Thank you.
G and SW meet at a park and goes off in G’s car, unaware
that little JJ is tailing them. SW asks G if he too has received orders from
Director to meet. G asks if she is worried but SW says they’ll have to face it
when it comes. Then G asks if Mom said anything, SW doesn’t answer and asks G
the same question about his mom. He lies and says that of course, his mom likes
her and is grateful to her for bringing the family together. SW is doubtful but
G says that she can believe him for eternity. Then he asks about her mom. She says
that her mom likes him too, as he can sing and drink well. LOL. And thanks to
him, her dad’s plans for the village went through. G looks at SW and holds her
hand and tells her not to change. To remain the same and hold on to each other like
they are now, even in times of crisis. SW gets worried and asks if something happened?
G says nothing of that sort, just that they are going into the meeting with the
Director. All this while, little JJ has been tailing them on his hot black
motorbike. Man, this boy is rocking it on that machine. I’d have noticed him a
mile away. Anyway at the traffic lights, both pulled to a stop and little JJ
goes right up beside G’ car and burns a hole in the window with his intense
glare. SW doesn’t notice him at all. My goodness, so ridiculous. Isn’t it enough
that the villain has to pull up so close especially when his job is not to
scare them but to tail them and aren’t NIS agents supposed to have a more
heightened sense of awareness? I guess if it hasn’t been happening in the past
18 eps, fat chance it will happen now.
At NIS HQ, Director fires questions at G and SW but they
refuse to answer any. Finally Director asks who is their leader and flashback
to YS telling the team that if they are asked this question, they should name
her. But G answers that they can’t divulge that either. SW pipes in to say that
they are concerned about WS and that’s why they acted. Director says that in
that case they acted out of their own anger and sense of justice. There is no
place for people like them who act as individuals and not as a team. Their
failings will become the team’s failing. Director fires them on the spot and
asks if they have any dissension. He gives them one more chance to tell him who
is the one instructing them but both SW and G refuses to tell. Just then YS comes
in and greets the Director, owning up that she is their leader. She says she
has somehow lost it when their comrade died, WS got attacked and the team disbanded.
The Director gets livid and YS requests to discuss this with him alone.
Director reinstates G and SW but tells them not to act without further
instruction. He then dismisses them. Alone, Director tells YS that he can’t
fire her, he would be letting WS down. Oh…he has a conscience? YS tells him to
cover up then but he says that things have blown up beyond his control. Slyly,
he proceeds to ask her where is WS? But YS knows better than to tell him. He
then orders her to go to the interrogation room. She tells him to end this matter
soon so that she can get married. Hahaha. As YS walks out , she is greeted by
SW and G who have not left as they are concerned about her. She lies and tells
them that she has settled the matter. She instructs them to continue with their
duties and that she won’t be back for a few days because she has to write the
Director meets some top executive in the construction
business. Seems like he has a hold on this guy because the latter sold some
trade secrets and the Director helped him to cover up. Now, he is using that to
threaten him into making a deal.
Little JJ is sitting his cute little a** on the bar stool
for possibly the last time or one of the last times before this drama ends. He
and Mirae are discussing over drinks. Predictable. Little JJ thinks that he is
very close to finding out where WS is. Mirae tells him to be careful as they
picked up his location at the hotel. Little JJ says that that their last card
is Kim Seo Won. They just need to catch her and G will spill the beans.
G and SW goes to visit WS at the hospital. There, G narrates
to WS all that has happened although he assumes that WS is still unconscious.
Then WS speaks up, shocking G and SW. Eh… didn’t he open his eyes last episode
and beseeched them not to tell anyone. Amnesia? Oh okay…..moving along. G
shouts and SW too, WS has to tell them to lower their voices. I think he’d have
kicked them if he could. He says that he can’t let his wife know that he has
regain consciousness as he cannot tell her the truth. Also, he will be
jeopardizing their safety by moving back home. He feels sorry towards his
family. SW thinks it’s a pity he can’t let his family know and suggests that he
seeks protection. WS sighs and says there’s an enemy within. SW’s eyes opens
and looks at G.
SW asks if it’s the Director who WS is referring to? She
tells him that they know almost everything except the reason why they had to
sacrifice Choi Heong Soo. WS says of course there is a reason. SW reiterates
her belief that there must be but WS lets that the reason is for the sake of
the country. He cannot let his personal feelings come into play if it is at the
country’s expense. He continues that everyone is part of the country and
harming them is equivalent to harming the country. So he sighs and concludes
there is no reason that can bear the weight of his actions. He asks if they
still want to be an agent like him. G says he wants to because at least WS’s
conscience is alive. SW asks WS if they can reveal the matter and WS says it’s
time they do so. Only by bringing it out to the open, can the mistake be
corrected. He tells SW that he will take care of the past while they take care
of the future(He could mean Mirae because her name literally means future).
Whatever. We’ll take of little JJ, bath time is happy time. SW and G walks out
of the hospital ward looking into each other’s eyes and holding hands. Me not
liking it much, there’s a sense of foreboding when kdrama couples start to talk
about staying together for eternity and being by each other’s side no matter
what happens. They sound like love vows or promises but you have watched your
share of kdramas to qualify as a bona fide fan, you’ll know that it’s a sign of
stormy weather ahead. They haven’t taken any selcas, right? Okay, still safe,
Director rendezvous with DH at some pavilion. He asks if he
has the experience of killing any one? DH simply answers that he was in the
military. Director tells him that it’s a sniper mission for him. DH asks about
the objective and target but Director chides him for asking too much and tells
him to just focus on succeeding in the mission which is to take place the
DH has arranged to meet up with SM. When he is back with the
coffee, he sees her doing another drawing of him and smiles. But SM is embarrassed
to be found out and asks what he wants? DH asks her for a personal favour and
it’s one that is going to flout the rules. He needs her to find out the
identity of the person who is the target of his mission. SM is pissed that he
assumes that she will help him and refuses. DH pleads with her saying that he
cannot shoot someone without knowing who it is. This finally gets SM’s attention
and she asks him to tell her about the mission. DH says he can’t and tells her
that she is the only one he can count on in times like this.
Cuts to SW’s empty bed. All right, do you really have to rub
it in, show? Then we see our dear couple having a tea ceremony, eyes closed,
legs crossed, each breathing in slowly and deeply. While we viewers at home are
staring at our screens with eyes wide opened, jaws slacked, each of us taking
short sharp breaths, sharping our knives for some slaughter ceremony of a known
individual. Okay, let our captive show his trick or two before we bring down
the cleaver, shall we? As SW slowly pours out the water(yeah, they cannot even
afford green tea if it’s not sponsored) and G slowly brings up the cup to his
lips, smiling as he sips, we hear blood vessels popping in the audience. So
much for calming nerves, huh? They then decide that it’s not working and try
drinking to clear the minds instead. Really, I can point out to them something
much more effective with no hangovers and more pleasurable too. Oh, that beer
is sponsored? Why is everything about money, can you do something for your
nation, show? Think of the demographic crisis!
SW ponders what does it mean to be a NIS agent? G says
although he doesn’t fully understand WS, he thinks it’s inevitable that he had
to make choices like those made. Then SW asks a hypothetical question: if they
are both on the mission and G has to leave her behind, will he? G asks her back
the same question but of course SW insists she asked first. G says that he will
have to put the mission first and leave her behind. That’s how they were
trained. Awww….you silly boy, haven’t you learnt anything about your puppy
heart? SW says the same thing. Isn’t this obvious that one of them is going to
be in a situation like the hypothesis? Gaaaah…. Anyway, their drinking ends
with both dispirited and SW saying that she is going to turn in for the night.
YS is in the interrogation room with an agent who is
obviously still wet behind his ears. He gets an earful from her and she demands
to cut to the chase and get a proper guy in for the job. The guy insists that
he has to complete his task and YS asks him if there is any man that he can
introduce to her. That’s funny.
Back to SW and G, SW is sleeping on her bed and G comes over
to the side and calls her but gets no response. He is disappointed that she is
already asleep. He tells her that in reality, he would never leave her behind
because without her, there is nothing in the country he wants to protect. Aww…then
he bends down and kisses her on her cheek. As he walks away, SW opens her eyes.
She suddenly gets up from her bed and dives under the covers with G. Here’s
where we see viewers’ pulse rates go off the charts and some start to
hyperventilate while others open their mouths wide. Could this be the moment we
all have been waiting for. It feels as if show is announcing the winner of the
big sweep lottery. I don’t know what exactly is SW doing under the covers but
when she appears from under, she covers her eyes. Hello? Is G naked or
something? I mean he sure is wearing a shirt as we can obviously see. Don’t
tell me he is naked down there? Anyway, she cuddles up to him and G is totally
taken aback, disbelieving his luck. Or so he thinks. He stutters: “Seo Won,
though I have been preparing for this…” He doesn’t get to finish as SW tells
him not to move. Huh? So G takes to patting her on her shoulder like you’d a
baby. But then his hand starts to move downwards and she says: “S-T-O-P. I’ll
leave(if you continue)” G grumbles that he doesn’t know if women can sleep in
this manner but men can’t. But she would have none of it. So G has no choice.
It’s sweet that he actually holds her in his arms in one and he uses the other
hand to stroke her head. Meanwhile, I hear more cussing, arteries bursting,
plates breaking, furniture hurled and broken, tears shed in anger and hundreds
of shippers’ heart being broken into tiny shards. Cleaver? Anyone?
At G’s office, Mr Ma a.k.a.
the man with a horrid wig comes in early to put breakfast for YS. It’s sweet
but she doesn’t appreciate it as long as there’s that roadkill on his head.
SM is going crazy, trying to guess who is it that DH is
tasked to kill and angrily slash her pencil over his drawing while DH sits
pretty by the pond, with the same worry on his mind. He gets a message from the
Director on the location of the kill.
SW and G meets YS to tell her about the whole story, G says
that the surviving children are in for revenge. YS laments that WS must be
saddled with guilt. She asks if SW and G are all right, whether they are disappointed?
She continues that they have no right to be disappointed with SW as they might
do the same thing if they had been in his shoes. SW feels sorry for the
children a.k.a. Mirae and little JJ. YS thinks otherwise. But SW insists and says
that if the agency cannot apologize then she must. G adds that he will
apologize too otherwise he won’t capture them. YS gets more exasperated and
asks G to get her coffee.
DH and Director are both on their way separately to the
location. Director tells DH not to fail. When DH reaches the rooftop, he sets
up his position. Meanwhile Mirae calls Director to asks if he has arrived and
Director says he is on his way. Mirae arrives first at the rooftop and DH
recognizes her immediately. He calls SM and tells her. His call gets cut in by
Director who tells him to stay on the line and report if he sees anyone else. SM
can’t get through to DH and she calls SW to tell her that DH is on mission to
kill Mirae. SW says he can’t kill Mirae. And then she jumps into G’s car and they
both rush to the location. SW tries to call DH but doesn’t get to him. G
deduces that he must be on the line with Director so they should call the
Director and if he is only engaged, they will know for sure. True enough the
Director’s line is also busy. So I learn a new thing, call waiting doesn’t
exist, huh? G and SW do not realize that little JJ has been tailing them on his
Director appears at the rooftop and tells DH that when he
accomplished his mission, they can go for drinks. Oh gawd. Mirae asks for WS
but Director cracks his jokes and laughs, saying that he doesn’t know. Mirae
gets really pissed, saying that didn’t she tell him this is the last day? The
Director tells her that if she were to give him that last name list, he promise
to let her leave the country safely. Mirae says it’s just so typical of NIS
style. She has no choice but to get rid of him and the Director says he will do
the same. He is just a few points short of his next promotion. So with her in
his hands, he will have no problem achieving it. The Director holds up that
hard drive and tells Mirae of how he intends to use it to implicate her as
having stolen those secrets. DH recognizes the hard drive as the one which he
had been tasked by the Director to take from a guy some time ago. Director
tells Mirae this is how she will die that is caught in the act of stealing
those secrets and downed by NIS. Mirae asks tearfully if it wasn’t enough to
kill her parents but also to kill the children? Director tells her not to seek
revenge should she be reincarnated. She should love and live life. I don’t know
why she is so shocked by his betrayal but anyway she demands an apology from
him now. She pulls out her gun and points at him. Director smiles confidently
and walks away with his back against her. I wonder why is he so confident in DH’s
sniping ability? DH gets an order from Director who tells him to shoot. DH
seems undecided as he aims at Mirae. Meanwhile G reaches the rooftop first and
gets DH off the rifle. DH says he has a mission to accomplish but G warns him.
They end up punching and fighting each other. SW reaches too and tells DH he
mustn’t kill Mirae but DH replies that then Director will die. SW widens her
eyes in surprise. I really wonder why? Didn’t they already come to the
conclusion? SW hurries to the sniper position and sees Mirae still pointing her
gun at Director. This is so absurd. The Director should know that something is
amiss when he can still hear Mirae cursing him as he walked away. Surely, he
would have turn around or panic that DH is not doing his job? I really can’t
understand. Mirae says that she has to get his apology or else she will shoot
him dead. Honey, just pull that darn trigger, will yeah? Oh man this is more
like a lovers’ quarrel than a life or death situation. DH yells at SW to shoot
and G yells don’t. Finally SW takes an aim at Mirae’s arm and Mirae falls to
the ground. DH and G stare in shock. As Mirae starts to get up and walk, SW
shoots her in the leg. G tells her not to shoot anymore and SW shouts at them
to go over to that building. As they rushed over, SW sees Mirae pointing a gun
to her temple. Mirae is crying as she remembers JJ breathing his last. SW is
sobbing even more than Mirae, I wonder if she can even aim. But she does and
Mirae falls to the floor.
My biggest beef with the episode is, however, not any of
these. It’s with the ending scene. I find the whole setup and the individual
reactions ludicrous. Shouldn’t these NIS agents be more level headed? If they
cannot even deal with a situation like this and let their emotions go into an
overdrive, I wonder how else can they perform under more demanding ones? I get
that SW and G are nice people with a conscience and wanting to right a wrong.
But this is no place for emotions to get the better of you. They should have
been more level headed in capturing Mirae with as little hurt inflicted as
possible. And what did they mean by unless they apologize to her first, they
can’t capture her? *throws my hands up in the air*
As I watched the preview, I am fearful of how the story will
wrap up. I hope the show did not forget that it’s a rom-com. Once we get our
villains, Big and Small out of the way, we should have the confetti and popping
of champagne. Tearful farewells and tragic deaths are totally out of sync.
SW manages to shoot Mirae before the latter can pull the
trigger to her head. Mirae slumps to the floor. SW calls SM to get an
ambulance. G and DH are sprinting to the building where Mirae is. SW keeps her
target within range in case she pulls another stunt. Mirae calls little JJ and
tells him to flee, live well and show them. Little JJ asks where is she?
Strange, I thought he followed G and DH? Mirae tells him that she fears being
captured. She fears that she will end up like her parents. Little JJ doesn’t
know that she has been shot and retorts saying she shouldn’t talk about dying
because he has all those rascals in his grasp. She tells him to live well and
live to the end. That’s the sweetest
revenge. Then she says sorry to him, that she is unable to join him. She hangs
up and throws her phone to the floor while little JJ screams at her on the
other end of the line.
Crap. Mirae is trying to pull herself up onto the parapet. I
think she really wants to die than be caught. Thanks to G’s long legs, he
reaches her in time and pull her down from the edge. G piggybacks Mirae down
the building while DH looks up at SW who is packing the sniper equipment. DH
finds the hard disk thrown by the Director and calls him. Director thank him
for a job well done, unaware that SW was the one who shot Mirae. DH keeps it to
himself, no doubt thinking of the Director in a different light now.
Little JJ sees Mirae being wheeled onto the ambulance and he
catches sight of SW carrying the sniper case and loading it into the car boot.
I can see where this is going. SW drives G’s car following behind the
ambulance, her hands are shaking. Back at the NIS office, DH, G and SW meet. SW
hands over the sniper case to DH and asks if it was the Director who ordered
him to shoot Mirae. DH refuses to answer. G says that if he wasn’t following
Mirae then the only conclusion is that he was acting on the Director’s orders.
SW asks if DH knows that he can’t kill Mirae? DH says it’s not important
whether he knows or not. They are just agents who have to follow orders. But SW
says he has to distinguish between right and wrong. DH asks what if he can,
does it mean he can disobey orders? SW expresses her disappointment in him and
DH says she just doesn’t need to see him in the future. He has no wish to see
them either. With that he storms off.
G drives SW home and they are unaware that they are being
tailed by little JJ. I think the motorcycle works much better for him since
they can’t seem to pick that up at all. He follows them to the apartment and
now, he knows where SW lives.
At home, SW is doing the dishes but it’s obvious that her
nerves are still rattled as she drops a plate. G picks up the broken pieces and
tells her to leave the chore and he pulls her to sit on the bar stool. He holds
her hand tenderly and looks into her eyes. He tells her it wasn’t her who
pulled the trigger. But SW says it is. G doesn’t answer straight away, instead
he strokes her hair in the loving way that he always does and as SW lets out a
sign, I can almost see a bit of that tension slip away. Which woman wouldn’t? Under
that loving gaze of your man who is telling you he is by your side and he loves
you and understands you. G tells SW that they
pulled the trigger together. They did it to break the cycle of vengeance.
SW looks at him and puts her head to his chest. She closes her eyes, comforted
by his touch. She says she is tired and asks if he can do the cooking instead.
He smiles and says that he is the better cook, isn’t he? At last, SW breaks
into a smile and nuzzles her face into his chest. Awwww……….
Unknown to G and SW, little JJ is standing outside staring
intently at the door. I almost expect him to burn a hole through with his
intensity but he pulls a gun out instead. He puts his finger to the door bell
but somehow he changes his mind and walks off. Turns out that he decides to go
the site of the shooting instead. He looks at the floor which is stained with
Mirae’s blood. He calls Mirae but of course she is not on the line. He just
wants to leave a message telling her that he will definitely come and get her. Then
he strips the battery off the phone and throws it.
G and SW is with WS’s daughter outside the ward. G tells the
girl not to worry as her dad will regain consciousness soon. She sarcastically
asks if he is a doctor because even the doctors couldn’t give her an answer.
She adds that the police are useless too because they don’t even know who shot
her dad. SW tells her that WS is strong to which the girl laughs and asks what
does SW know? Dad can’t even protect himself from the crook and she has even
seen him kneel down and beg She refuses to believe and says that Dad is weak. G
asks if she thinks WS is an embarrassment? The daughter retorts that being a
dad doesn’t automatically makes him a person worthy of respect. G tells her
that WS is most worthy of respect and someone to be proud of because he is the
top NIS agent. SW gasped and shouts at G. The daughter is totally flabbergasted
and goes calling for her mom on her newfound discovery. SW asks why did G
reveal that? G says that WS has the right to receive respect from his family. I
can’t help but think that G has a fresh perspective of parent-child relationship
after he reconciled with his Dad.
Meanwhile, we admire little JJ’s well-polished black shoes
as he steps into SW’s apartment. Geez…even his shoes look menacing. He does
nothing much but look around and shoots at SeoRo’s couple pic. Thank goodness,
he didn’t shoot the Monkey, I will cry if I see the stuffing fly in the air.
Mirae has regained consciousness and SW and G are by her
bedside. She angrily tears off the drips and G tells her that she still needs
them. Mirae laughs and tells them to stop being hypocritical. That’s what NIS
does best. They can smile and then shoot one in the back. She says to them the
past is not important, all they want to know is where Choi Woo Hyuk, Choi Woo
Jin are and what’s the relationship with the Director. G admits that they are
curious. Mirae says she will never tell them. SW says they are not here to
interrogate her, they are here to apologize. Mirae stares at SW as if she is
mad. Then SW makes a heartfelt apology for the hurt inflicted on Mirae’s
family, on her and all the things in the past. Mirae gets emotional too. She tells
SW that it’s too late and she didn’t come all the way here just to hear her
apology. Besides the guilty are all hiding. She says SW has no authority to
apologize. SW says although it wasn’t a mistake committed by her, she never thought
she could shirk from the responsibility. No one can be free from the past.
Mirae says that the blood shed by her family has been glossed over by that
history. An apology will not be sufficient, there can be no forgiveness unless
they die. SW asks if by doing that, will she achieve what she wants? SW tells
her to recuperate well so that she can live well. That’ll be the best revenge. This
is must be déjà vu to Mirae who said the exact words to little JJ.
Mirae says she won’t be moved by her words so she is not
about to give them answers. G says that Mirae has also done the same thing to
him by using his Dad and him then throwing them aside. One day, she will also
have to apologize to him. It take more courage to forgive than to apologize. He
admits he doesn’t have it in him to forgive her yet but neither does she have
the courage to accept forgiveness. So he tells her to be strong and live on
till she has that courage. Then he leaves to call in the nurse.
SW tells Mirae that she will still pursue and catch Choi Woo
Hyuk and Choi Woo Jin. But revenge isn’t about rehashing the past but using the
past to connect to the future.
Little JJ is sitting intensely in SW’s kitchen. I wonder if
he will get bored and shoot G’s underwear if they are still hanging there.
Imagine G wearing his boxers and briefs riddled with holes. What? That’s not
central to the plot?
Meanwhile, SW and G are outdoors, SW is mulling over if she
did the right thing by apologizing. G says that she did and WS will say that
she did well. Their conversation gets interrupted by the arrival of NIS agents
sent by the Director. They want SW for questioning. When G protests, he gets a
kick in the shin. There seriously isn’t an episode where he doesn’t get kicked
or hurt in any way. SW has no choice but to follow them back while G looks on
The devil himself interrogates SW. He asks why her
fingerprints are on the gun and why was she there? He wants to know who ordered
her and if it’s DH. He also wants to know if she has picked up anything from
Mirae after shooting her. SW doesn’t answer and Director tells her to prepare
to be in detention till she speaks up. G and little JJ are waiting separately
Director gets DH in for questioning but DH insists it’s him
who made the shots. DH says that SW came when he went to the washroom, LOL.
Director doesn’t think it’s funny. He asks if DH has picked up the hard disk? DH
says he did and gets punched in his face and cursed by the Director. He doesn’t
back down and tells the Director to release SW in exchange for the hard disk.
Director gets livid and says that DH has committed a grave mistake. However he
will let SW go if DH kills Mirae. DH thinks for all of 1 second and says he
will if the Director releases SW.
So SW gets released. She is reaching home when she calls G
who is relieved and goes immediately to her place once she hangs up. I don’t
know how little JJ got into SW’s apartment because there seems to be no sign of
forced entry. Perhaps he really did burnt a hole in the lock with his intense
glare. SW steps inside not knowing better and is shocked to see little JJ
standing there, pointing his gun at her. G reaches SW’s apartment car park and
walks past little JJ’s motorbike without giving it a second look. The camera
zooms in, I don’t know why except for product endorsement because G has never
spot JJ on his tail before on that motorbike. Neva mind. G steps into SW’s
apartment but there is no one there. He spots the bullet ridden photo and
worse, blood droplets on the floor. Just then he gets a call. It’s little JJ
who tells him to show the way to WS. G shouts at him but little JJ says he’d
better comply or else his girlfriend will die and then it’s his dad and mom’s
turn. SW shouts in the background to tell G not to divulge WS’s whereabouts and
promptly gets a hard knock on her head by little JJ. Little JJ tells G not to
hang up the phone and come to the car park. Otherwise his girl is going to be
When G sees SW held at gun point by little JJ, his heart
sank. Little JJ instructs him to take the motorbike and lead the way to the
hospital. I love this, just to see Joo Won riding a cool motorbike, totally
awesome. G puts on the helmet and rides off. I can hardly type. Then little JJ
warns SW that she’d better follow or her man will die. Gawwdddd. Joo Won is
really riding a motorbike. He totally needs to ride one in his next drama or
movie. And better shots please? Preferably a nice cool motorbike suit to go
DH steps into Mirae’s hospital room, looking very
suspicious. He takes out a syringe of opaque liquid and stares at Mirae rather menacingly
before putting it to her drip. Mirae is awake all this time and trembles,
looking at DH with frighten eyes, no doubt certain that she is doomed to die.
G leads little JJ who is holding a gun to SW’s back, down
the hospital corridor. As he walks, he looks back and also remembers WS’s
words. Flashback to WS talking to G and SW. He told them to send his family
home and tell little JJ where he is. He wants little JJ to come and find him.
SW looked away in disbelief and G asks if WS wishes to get shot again, if that’s
the best way to make amends. WS says that although he was wrong, by capturing
them and ignoring what he did, he will guilty of a greater sin. With these
thoughts on his mind, G takes the long walk down the corridor. Geez…I can stare
at this man whole day long. He just looks amazing in whatever outfit they put
on him. G stops outside WS’s room, hesitates for a second and looks at SW who
nods in affirmation, before opening the door.
Little JJ gloats that WS is still in a coma and properly
will die soon. At this point, G tells him that Mirae is in a stable condition.
If little JJ stops here, everyone can live. But little JJ would have none of
it. He says the only outcome would be that they die and he takes Mirae with
him. Cuts to DH pumping more of that obnoxious looking fluid into Mirae’s drip.
I was kind of expecting Mirae to start to gasp for air or something. She looks
at him and smile wryly saying that she knew they will come to his i.e. to kill
her. DH doesn’t say anything. Back to little JJ who refutes G, saying that that’s
their conclusion and he adds he has no more use for them. He pulls his anger
and takes an aim at G but gets thwarted by SW. He fights with SW and is about
to shoot her when G hurls himself in front of SW, shielding her but takes a
bullet in his shoulder. SW cries out and rushes to G who has fallen down,
grabbing his shoulder in pain. Little JJ says it’s not tragic enough. Just as
he seems to take another aim at him, WS calls out his name: “Woo Jin ah” Then
he sits up and takes off his drip. Little JJ looks shocked as if he sees a
zombie rising out from the tomb. He points his gun at WS nonetheless. WS: “You
have come to find me at last.” WS starts to get off the bed but little JJ warns
him not to move. His gun is shaking badly. WS is not afraid and walks up to
him. In fact as he goes nearer to little JJ, it is the latter who steps back.
WS takes a look at little JJ(somehow looking at the lower half only) and says
he has grown up. Yeah, Team Leader, I trust your assessment. I shan’t call him
little JJ anymore. He is JJ, he grew up well, didn’t he?
JJ tells him to cut out the crap. WS says sorry to him JJ
tells him not to come any nearer. Meanwhile G spots a gun taped to the
underside of the bed. WS tells JJ that he regrets living wrongly and that JJ
must not be like him and to live right. JJ tells him he doesn’t have the right
to say that to him. WS says it’s because of him that JJ turned out the way he
did. When JJ kills, it’s as if it’s WS who did, there is no difference. JJ’s
sins are also his. So WS tells him that he can’t let JJ continue to live like
this, he must stop him. JJ says he has done nothing wrong, it’s they who did.
He will be the judge. WS tells JJ that he has never forgotten them, he says
sorry again and that he didn’t do anything for them. JJ looks visibly shaken as he flashes back to
the same scene where he and Mirae as children were crying at WS’s side. Then
again he remembers again his hyung’s words about not believing those agents and
their crocodile tears. He tells WS that he will not be fooled again and G gets
the gun from under the bed. Hmmm… JJ is about to shoot WS but gets hit by G
squarely in his shoulder. He slumps onto the floor, crying. WS kneels down
beside and tells him to forgive him. Then he hugs him and JJ dissolves into
DH is still pumping that mixture into Mirae’s drip. You mean
she is not dead yet? Well, not so. DH speaks at last. He tells her not to
worry, he will move her to a safe location. Phew, thank goodness. I can’t bear
the thought of DH being that evil. Mirae goes under so it seems that liquid is
some kind of sedative, sure looks suspicious. YS comes in and DH tells her not
to let the Director know. YS scowls at him, calling him a double crosser, no
one will believe him after this, except her. And that certain lady who keeps
painting pictures of him. By the way, did anyone see the nude? How can they end
this show? SM needs to graduate from her painting class!
So cute that WS gets together with his wife and daughter. He
presents her a huge bouquet of roses and a single stalk for his daughter. They
look such a pretty picture. At NIS HQ, YS is interrogating Mirae. Wow, Mirae
looks as stylish and put together as usual. She can’t be incarcerated unless
they have designer clothes, make up studio and hair salon in prison. And
Director is packing his files? WT!* ASDFGHJK!@#$%^&!!! He isn’t running for
his life? He is actually putting his things in a box like an employee who has
been laid off. And he is having a meal and drinks with WS?!?! I half expected
them to be surrounded by an army in no time, ready to apprehend the Director
and bring him to justice. But no, he pours WS a drink and that’s when I
ransacked my kitchen for that mind-numbing liquid. By chance, does DH have
another of that sedative? I need to put my brain to sleep. WS says it’s a pity
he didn’t get some award but he got promoted. Director sighs and tells WS that
he betrayed him and almost cost him his life. WS laughs it off and says he
should wear a bullet proof vest in future. WT* and then they toast. Director:
“For our country” and WS: “For our people” I shudder. I blinked my eyes
rapidly, yawned in exaggeration to make sure this is not a symptom of an oxygen
deprived brain but no, this actually happens. I have watched this show for the
last 19 episodes and pretty much threw lots of stuff out of the window but this
is like the whole load of rubbish I threw out, gets compacted into this pile of
Richard Simmons and it all comes crashing down on me. The biggest villain in this drama actually
gets promoted and toasted by his victim. Amnesia shot, pleeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzz.
G is packing his things into a luggage. He nags at SW not to
always have ramyun for meals and other things. SW puts another shirt into his
suitcase and G pouts that he left it behind on purpose so that he will have
something to change into when he comes over. SW says no and G calls her: “Kyung
Ja.” When she tries to cover his mouth, he bites it playfully. G complains that
she never tries to ask him to stay and won’t even let him leave some things
behind. But SW says that it’s he who packed his bag. She never told him to
leave. G changes his mind and says he will take unpack his things then. But SW
tells him to come by and cook when he can. G pouts more and grumbles that she
doesn’t try to stop him from leaving. Suddenly SW brings up their vacation and
G breaks into a big smile. She gets all shy and look away while G slaps
playfully on her shoulder. Hmm….vacation = sex? I worry for this country’s
Han and his wife are talking about retiring to the
countryside. Mom says they can’t leave G cuz he hasn’t grown up. LOL. Dad says
he is already grown up and moreover he has already left home. Mom insists that
he will come back and she wants to wait till he gets married at which she
hurriedly adds that it mustn’t be that Kyung Ja. Just then, G comes home with
his suitcase. Mom is so happy and tells him not to leave home again at which G
says he is going off for a trip. Mom asks if it’s with Kyung Ja and tells him
he mustn’t. So G lies and says he has been posted to Jeju. Mom hits the roof
and tells Dad straight away that she wants to go and stay in the countryside
now. She will show G how happy they can live without him, ha.
G and SW are having a lovely time at the beach. There are
lots of seagulls and G takes a picture of SW flapping her arms like a seagull
while G does a funny pose. Is that supposed to be an albatross or what? G does
this really high jump because that’s totally Joo Won. G writes on the sand: "Kyungja-ssi, tonight, Ok?" and gets clawed in the face by SW.
That night at the hotel balcony, SW is looking at the photos
on the tablet. Product placement, yap. G comes out with drinks.SW says it’s the first time she is travelling with such
lightheartedness and being relaxed. G half scowls and says that’s not what she
should be feeling now. This being her first time travelling with her boyfriend,
she should be feeling excited. SW asks if he is excited and G laughs hohoho. SW
tells him that she has something to tell him. She has been assigned to go
overseas, somewhere far away. G asks for how long and SW says she doesn’t know,
1 year or two or maybe longer. She asks if it’s true he has been assigned to
Jeju and he says yes. They both look sad. G gets up and say he won’t ask where
she will be but totally give it away but reiterating it again and again with
sulk and all. So SW tells him that she is going Germany. G opens his mouth,
totally dismayed that it’s so far away. He says if it’s China or Japan, they
could at least meet weekly. SW promises to call him every day so it’ll be like
she’s by his side. G says he wishes he could just reach her and be with her
whenever he wants to and SW says time will fly so they can be together before
they know it. Then G says let’s go to bed. But SW says they should talk more
because they are going to be apart for a long time. G says all the more, they
should stick close together and he pulls her towards him. SW panics and says
wait, the air is good, they should stay outside and talk more. G says it’s full
of sand in the air, the air indoor is better. SW looks really anxious, G smiles
and scoops her up in his arms. G: “Let’s go in, Kyung Ja ssi.” SW looks at him
and covers her eyes. G smiles and asks why is she trembling. G keeps teasing
her calling her name and telling her to pull the curtain aside and then draw
SM hands the hard disk back to the top executive whom the
Director had blackmailed. As he leaves, we see DH sitting there with his hands
over his face. So it was DH who got SM to do him a favour. SM says that now
that the team has changed, they can only meet each other during reunions like
once a year. DH says she can call him anytime if she needs help because she has
helped him. SM says if that’s the only reason. DH smiles and says she can call
him for any reason. SM scoffs and asks if he thinks she will like him and
follow him forever. Well, I can’t blame him as long as you keep drawing him and
definitely you can’t stop before you accomplish that nude. DH says he sees her
as loyal .
special thanks to @daydreamsindecember for translating the most awaited question in this whole drama "tonight, ok?" and the answer or rather act of an answer, saved the lives of many viewers who almost turned blue with anticipation.
SM insists that she is not the type who sticks like glue and
DH smiles knowing better. SM says she is a cool lady and then gets all the
whipped cream over her lips. DH passes her the serviettes and says he will be
going. Of course, SM runs after him and after saying good bye and both go in
different direction, SM turns around and runs towards DH. She leaps onto his
back and asks if she is heavy. He says she is and she makes a face and asks him
to take 10 steps and treat it as an exercise. He ends up carrying her all the
way because he kept repeating the count. So sweet.
YS meets Jin Joo for a matchmaking date. Jin Joo praises her
appearance as YS has done some cosmetic job on her face. Jin Joo encourages her
to do more. YS asks about her date. She says she doesn’t know anything about
him and she does have some criteria. Jin Joo assures her that the candidate has
solid credentials. What’s more, he specially chose her. YS is surprised. But we
are not as it is Mr Ma a.k.a. the man with the horrid wig who turns up. He says
he has been searching for her. YS gets real mad and lashes out at Jin Joo and
the guy then she storms off. Mr Ma is undeterred saying that he is attracted to
strong women, ha.
G is sending SW off at the airport. Our boy is in Major Pout
mode. SW promises to call him every day, he nods sulkily. She promises to do
video calls and letters too but all get the same response from Mr Pouty Lips. Finally,
she asks if he is going to send her off in this manner and asks for a smile. He
bares his teeth and grins at her in the most fake smile ever. So cute. They walk
towards the departure gate with hands held together. She promises to call once
she lands. He reminds her to deposit savings into their joint account every
month. Then he hugs her and walks away still sulking. Then, he stops, turns
around and walks back to her angrily. He asks why does she dress up as if she
is going for a date instead of assignment. Why does she have to look so
beautiful? SW smiles and says that if he didn’t say that, she will be
disappointed. She says she deliberately dressed up and G picks a quarrel over
why does she have to do that only that particular day and not on other days? SW
says she wants to leave a good impression on him before she leaves and she also
wants to tell him something. G asks what is it? SW says she is sorry she has never
said it before: “Saranghae” G pretends he can’t hear and asks her to repeat so
SW says it louder. G smiles and says he loves her more. Awwww…. Then he pulls
her in for a kiss and they hold each other passionately.
Han and his wife is heading to their retirement village. Dad
is a lot more enthusiastic than Mom. He spots a soldier on the street and
decides to pull up to ask for direction. No prizes for guessing who that is. Of
course, it’s SW’s little brother. Han tells him that he wants to meet the
village chief and SW’s brother says he is the chief son so he hops in and they
drive off. And of course they land up in SW’s parents’ home and I think there
goes their dream of finding peace.
G calls SW and realizes that he called at the wrong time
because she sounds like she is in bed. SW says it’s okay, she has woken up. He
apologizes and promises to calculate the time difference correctly the next
time. SW asks if he is alright because she read that there is a typhoon in
Jeju. G looks around him where the weather is just might fine. Of course he is
not in Jeju but he lies. He tells her to continue to sleep and sends his love.
Flashback to G meeting WS who is now the Director of NIS. WS
tells him of his new mission, there is a rogue who is involved in some virus
warfare. G is to go undercover and pretend that he is in Jeju although he is in
Seoul. Eh…? Why? I don’t get it but doesn’t matter because G looks so darn
dorky and cute as a professor. While he is being introduced to his new colleagues
at some science institute and right in the middle of his speech, in walks SW
wearing a lab coat and huge glasses. G lets out an expletive and stares at SW
who stares back. They step outside and at once launched into a ‘Who Is the
Biggest Liar’ fight. LOL. So it seems that SW never went to Germany and SW
calls G out for pretending he was in Jeju. I could watch Joo Won scowl forever.
Okay maybe not, I love his dimples more. Anyway, they continue their cute
bickering and G says it’s not important who started lying first. SW asks what’s
important then. G lets out a sigh, looks hard at SW and soon breaks into a
smile. He says that they being together is the most important. G asks SW to say
that she loves him one more time. SW complies and after G checks that there is
no one nearby except a harmless looking cleaning lady, he swoops in for a kiss.
But they get interrupted by a broom that fell onto G’s head. It’s YS who is working
undercover as the cleaning lady. She chases them round and round.
Why 7th Level Civil Servant is a 10 for Me
This is the 3rd draft I am writing for my
postmortem of the drama. Watching the drama was not easy, why should I expect
writing it to be any easier? The first draft read like cussing, the second still
angry, so I decided this one should be light and fluffy like the drama itself
instead of me attempting to be a serious drama critic. After all, I know there
are a number on this thread who are able to write more intellectual and serious
stuff than me.
I think most of us agree this is not the best drama by any
standard. I hope that my 1,400 minutes spent watching it and millions of
minutes tearing my hair over it shall not be wasted. There are always lessons
we can take from any experience, be it a good or bad. So I shall present the 'perfect
10' lessons I have learnt from watching 7LCS
#1 Predictive Ability Are Not Restricted To Analysts or
Yesterday,on Joo Won thread, @mhelbenito post a 7LCS picture which I did before
the drama started, I did a double take when I saw it. I had forgotten entirely
the poster which I did in jest and satire in light of certain events that were happening
on this thread. Little had I known then that my crystal ball actually works, although
way too accurate for my liking.
#2 The Higher The Expectation, The Greater The
This drama was written by the same writer who wrote the box
office hit of the movie itself. We just didn’t know he had a lobotomy between
then and now. It was actually greatly anticipated by a number of bloggers and
fans but alas, it fell short of expectation
#3 Who Needs Weapons When You Have A Quick Reflexes?
No one learns from the fiasco of WMD. Who needs guns when
all you need is a quick foot. Did I see a disclaimer at the end of the drama
that states no actor or part of was hurt in the filming of this drama? I really
should go and check him out myself.
#4 When Being Shallow Saves Your Sanity
I gave up on the convoluted plot of technology espionage,
corporate spies, false identities and what nots because when I saw a hawtie
like this brooding and smokin’ in the bathtub, I just wish the water level
went shallower than my brain.
#5 Godsend Gifts Aren’t Always Appreciated
I can’t really pin point whose fault it is. Was Gilro’s lips
getting in the way too often or was Seo Won blind in rejecting of that godsend
gift thrust upon her? All I know is that there are thousands of women in the
queue for that gift.
#6 Clear Your Wardrobe, You’ll Never Know When You Need It.
One of my first tasks after writing this piece is to clear
my wardrobe and paint it white. I never knew I could stuff a man inside my
wardrobe. If he looks anything like Gilro, I am willing to go nude in order to
#7 Watching KDramas Need Not Be Bad For Health
I actually found watching this drama to be quite
beneficial to health. I toned up muscles hurling furniture at my computer
screen, increased my heart rate to the target range whilst bolted to my chair
and I strengthened my eye muscles with some major eye rolling exercise. Last
but not least, I had a toilet break every episode and didn’t end up with a
urinary tract infection.
#8 Forgive and Forget
I think ‘forgive and forget’ is the central theme to the drama.
If only the villains were to forgive and forget and live their lives well,
that’s the best revenge. So the next time, your boss stabs you in your back,
takes credit for your work and tells you to sacrifice for his career, buy him a
drink and toast to his good health. You
have achieved the highest level of kdrama sainthood. May the same apply to you
in real life.
#9 Victory Comes to Those Who Are Patient
After weeks of running after his target and enduring all the
slapping, face scratching, hair pulling, plate licking, groin kicking and other
red-card fouls, our hero scores a GOAL! And viewers could take a deep breath after
almost turning blue from anticipation.
#10 Drink And Make Merry With Your Kdrama Friends
Even when the drama sucks and I suffer more misery than
expected, having friends on this thread to rave, squeal, spazz, cry, rave or
rant makes all the difference. So my last lesson is when your drama turns out
to be a lemon, make lemonade and enjoy it in the company of friends.
I thank all chingus on this thread for making my viewing of
this drama a memorable one because we went through thick and thin together.
This drama received so much hate in blogs everywhere that it became fashionable
to raze it to the ground. Although we do criticize and get exasperated, I know
that deep down inside us, we want this drama to do better and we held out to
the very end.
Thank you @coolreborn for always being there with me from
the very first day. Together with @septmoon16 and @aisling, we have our fun
doing MP posters. Special thanks to the wonderful @chrissy96 who faithfully
gave us live recaps. To the most loyal supporter @valinor500 who loves this
drama, warts and all, you make me cut down my vitriol. Thank you @raito1310 for
giving us most of the ratings updates. Thank you @NEWMARIO for faithfully uploading
videos and posting them. Thank you @ezze and @arch00 for posting live
screencaps. And chingus like @Aera @stearly @simplydramafied @kithyhoo @bobsavero @crazyoverkdrama
