Bride: Hold on. It's gonna be a bumpy ride!

Firstly, I read on Koala’s Playground that BotC is only going to be 16 episodes, not 20. So glad to be wrong! Can you imagine what kind of melodramatic makjang this show might drag out if it was only halfway done! Now I can breathe a little easier. But not too easy, because this show has crazy women coming out the wazoo. Roo-mi, Yi-kyung, pretty much anyone with the title “mother”, and even Doo-rim (but only in the nicest, non-lethal form of insanity). Seriously, girl. No matter how much you love him, you should have told him who you were BEFORE the wedding. The poor boy already has trust issues.

This show’s pace continues to amaze. This week we got a reconciliation, a wedding, a honeymoon, a kidnapping, and confirmation that our sassy ghost is firmly in the good guy’s camp. I hope they don’t run out of plot points. Do you think they’ll pull out that teeth-grinding of all K-drama clich├ęs? You know the one I mean. I’ll just whisper it so as not to put ideas in the writer’s head. Amnesia. But as long as they pepper the drama with cute moments like the coupons and couple tees, I think I can handle it. We better see more of Doo-rim’s handmade wedding gift in the future. Why would they introduce something like that, if it’s not going to be used for a future squeeable moment? And I reeeeeeeaaaaaalllllyyy want to know when that first, heart-beating moment was for Kang-joo. It’s tomorrow, already! You promised you’d tell. He’s such a tease.

Instead of listing the moments that made me laugh, cry, moan, or shake my fist with rage, I’m going to end with some questions. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments section, if you think you can solve the mystery.

How much was Oppa kicking himself that he stalled Kang-joo just
long enough for Doo-rim to grab him in a weepy backhug?

Who knows this "secret" besides Doo-Rim, Kang-joo, KJ's Dad & Mom, KJ's houskeeper, KJ's secretary . . . maybe it would be shorter
to ask who doesn't know besides . . . the kitten?

Does this show really boil down to the most
twisted version of Cinderella ever written?

Did I miss the memo that says, "The way to a man's heart is by
openly alluding to his true love's imminent death"?

And my final, and most important question:

Will I ever understand the K-drama definition of appropriate nightwear?


  1. hahahaha They really are covered from head to toe. Whatever happened to the evil secretary's nightgown she gave as a gift. Maybe they should have actually kept it. hmmmmmmm that was in this show wasn't it? I might be watching so many dramas everything is mixing together. LOL

  2. I have always wanted to ask if Koreans really go to bed fully clothed, but I didn't think it would be polite to ask......
