If you’ve been around the drama scene long enough, I’m sure you’ve picked up on the fact certain types of dramas have a tendency to air during certain seasons. And generally, this works, ’cause a breezy rom-com is usually the sweetest, just as spring washes away and the summer heat sets in or a poignant saga is best felt as the leaves start to turn and the air chills.
I’m a sucker for summer love, in all its capacities but usually in the form of a simple but cute romantic comedy, and thankfully, Discovery of Romance slid in right in time to be added to that list this year. Eric Mun and Jung Yumi have been collected in the basket full of beloved OTPs that reunited this year. Until now, this surge has been unprecedented but I’m thinking Korea may find themselves desiring to make this occurrence a little more common. I’m also delighted that the majority of the reunions have steered from their original genre, proving that their chemistry is a complete package spurred by their character.
And eventhough, it seems a mangy little rabbit will litter my screen for the next few weeks (I hate those things!), I chalk it all up to the things I do for love. Therefore there was no way, Ekun and I were going to let this drama pass by without a few words, and amazingly, we’ve managed to pull a special guest!!! Fellow drama enthusiast, blogger and hilarious friend, Drama Debussie, was gracious enough to join us this time around!

My favorite character makes and appearance, while the rest of the city shrieks at his arrival. Scale is detained, again, while Safari and the Practice play hot potato over the snafu that is PJ’s untimely death. Meanwhile, Rip and I wade through the mud and the muck deciding who to love, who to leave and who to let live… Like we’re in control of that.

Faces are slapped by hands and money, while word of Safari’s double life reveals more about past entanglements and deceptions. The Doctor’s Practice makes a move and an alliance and the Unit reinstates a member. Then a new casualty has “The Doctor Did It” in theaters for it’s third installment.
And as usual Rip and I agree and disagree, only to conclude that the Doctor is worth it all!
Continue reading Rip and Chan Take on the City: episode twelve
Everything shifts drastically and the city rumbles as alliances are challenged, broken and clarified. The Doctor dons his damage control digs and winds the clock back, while Hyung-min gets some handy advice. But surprisingly, Soo-min moves towards being savvier than expected, yet just as annoyingly clingy and needy, while perhaps showing her hand a bit too soon.
