Full circle. The show started with Bong-hee and Ji-wook agreeing to sleep together and now they have finally delivered. One of the strongest points of the show is how it portrays relationships in a way where we can relate to the characters on different levels, from friendship to love and family, their interactions are always rooted in reality and familiarity of some kind. I like it.
Bong-hee and Ji-wook’s relationship, and their romance, went through different facets until they reached a point where their friendship, companionship and love for each other is strong enough to be together as a couple. This way the show can portray them doing what couples do in real life: they laugh, banter, share tension, fight, want each other, touch, love and have sex. And that’s okay and even healthy for a show to portray. It’s -in most cases- what happens when you date. I like it so much better when Dramaland presents me this kind of relationship instead of the idealized one where everything it’s shyness and innocence. Those kind of relationships are also something that is okay be portrayed, especially if the characters are at that point in their lives, but it wouldn’t fit with the kind of the show that it’s Suspicious Partner.
I was not expecting this to happen. He kisses her, she throws the laundry to the floor, clean clothes be damned, and next thing we know they are in full make out session falling into the bed. RAWR! HOT DAMN. It’s all happening. And I need to fan myself. It was fun, sexy, passionate and sweet, just like Ji-wook and Bong-hee.
Of course, as blissful the good and happy times were… we have to deal with the bad and ugly too. Ji-wook seeing Bong-hee’s father picture at that moment was the worst thing ever. And I want to comment on Ji Chang-wook’s acting once again because with only with his eyes, he completely transmitted the fear and confusion going through Ji-wook at that moment. He doesn’t know even half of the truth, but thankfully we do. So, let’s not panic and just deal carefully with the humongous amount of palpitations today’s episode and that freaking cliffhanger gave us.
This is what we know for sure: first scene and the show is already spelling out to us that DA Jang is a corrupted bastard covering up the truth for his own benefit. Nothing we didn’t already knew. And sure enough, next thing we know Ji-wook and Bong-hee both voice out their refusal to take a case involving arson since their respective fathers died in a fire. But why be subtle when the show let’s you see DA Jang with child Ji-wook telling him who killed his parents. Covering his ass? Yes. DA Jang’s is Satan’s whore. And that’s that, we know who the real culprit is.
As much as Ji-wook holds his parents dear and close to his heart, I think he has also proven to be a man of cool thinking when the time calls for it, which is why I don’t believe he will do something stupid like destroy his relationship with Bong-hee before getting most if not all the facts first. As a matter of fact, I believe he won’t break up with her at all and that from now on they both will have to resolve the mystery surrounding their parents. This is why I have been going on and on for the last couple of weeks about them nurturing their relationship and growing as a team before they find out this ugly connection between them, because the last thing they and we need is for separation angst. Let’s not do it, show, you have already proven to be full of surprises, so don’t go the predictable way.
Going back to the good, it’s really nice to have Chief Bang back at the law firm and bringing back the fun dynamic between him and Eun-hyuk. It’s only right the Captain and maritime pilot of our ship were present when the mothers finally find out who is who and Ji-wook announced their relationship out in the open. Pfffft! This show knows how to build up a scene and squeeze it until the last drop of comedy gold.
I also love the new running joke of Ji-hae under the delusion that Eun-hyuk has a thing for her, to which I say: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAHAHAAA! The moment he laughed at her, after her brawl with Bong-hee, I knew the show was going to do something with these two, I just didn’t know what. In the end it’s building something so good, I can hardly wait to see Ji-hae make a fool of herself when she finds out Eun-hyuk still cares for Yoo-jung. Question is how does Yoo-jung, who is growing closer with Ji-hae, feels about him? Oh, this is going to be a great comedy of errors.
PS: Hyun-soo’s case isn’t over yet! He is waking up, what does it mean? Will we find out the truth behind his actions? What about the man who ran over him? And where in the world is Chan-ho?!
“You feel a pulling at something inside of you, and you don’t know what it is. In a way, it’s intangible, but at the same time, it’s real - because you can feel it. The moment you eat this meal, a bond is created.
When people talk about destiny, this is the kind of thing they talk about. You feel it now because there’s so much power in it, Taako, and whatevers on the other end - whoever - they feel it, too.”
My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!
(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)
“What? Two posts in one day??” I’m distracting myself ok?
Two of my favorite things ever, meet in an AU I’ve been calling Corpse Star bc @dvvkroh is a genius ((first 3 are basically done, the rest are WIPs, with even more to come! I’m very excited about this!))
This Friday (31st March) is Trans Day of Visibility
[This post refers to TDoV 2017; other years will have TDoV on a different day of the week]
It’s that time of year again! That awesome day where trans people share their selfies and stories. It’s one of the two largest trans advocacy days, the other being Trans Day of Remembrance (20th November). That day is dedicated to mourning and solemnity, while this day is a day to celebrate being alive! Like last year, I’m not sure of the absolute official hashtag, so I’m guessing there’ll be a variety in use, such as: #tdov #transdayofvisibility #trans day of visibility #trans visibility #trans pride #transresistance #trans resistance
This day has been recognised since 2009 and is increasing in popularity and support each year, but there’s still a long way to go in spreading the word. Visibility is something that the trans community often has to struggle for, so this is our time to step out of the shadows, take pride in who we are, and show the world that we exist and we’re here to stay.
If you are trans
This is your day. No matter your gender - whether you’re male, female, or any nonbinary gender - anyone who isn’t cis (ie. whose gender is different from the gender they were assigned at birth) can participate. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the community and be visible. If you’re comfortable, post a selfie. Share your story. This is your time to be proud of who you are! It can get hard and lonely sometimes, but there’s a whole community here who have your back.
If you are not trans
Please also get involved - don’t leave this day just up to us. Today is a day for you to support and listen to the trans community. Show us some love by reblogging some selfies and reading some stories, whether you browse through the tags listed above or stick to your mutuals. Now is a perfect opportunity to learn about our wonderful community and to look at some beautiful people. It’s a win-win, really.
Above all, I hope everyone has a fantastic TDoV! Have fun and keep it positive.
