Kiss Goblin Ep 3 Recap

EP3. “The Reason People are Sad”

The episode this time starts out with the goblin and our female lead staring at each other and breaking down in tears… Why, you might ask? Well, the scene quickly changes back to earlier in the day to see how this came about.

Yeonah and her friend Seolhee are at a cafe and the server puts waaaay more cream on Yeonah’s cup than Seolhee’s. He’s got quite an obvious crush on her!

Kiss Goblin Ep 2 Recap

On to the second episode! (EP2. 위로가 필요해 “I Need Comfort”)

It begins with a quick recap of the punch to the face from the ending of episode 1, however this time we get a good look at how the kiss started, and honestly, it’s pretty cute:

Gaaaaahhhhh! It ain’t even the lead girl yet……..

She initiates the kiss (though only after he does some of his voodoo goblin magic stuff) and then it gets a little more hot and heavy, including him getting another glowing orange ball of emotions, before Yeonah comes up and socks him in the face ;D

Kiss Goblin Ep 1 Recap

Kiss Goblin (also known as “Kiss Ghost” or in Korean, 키스요괴), is a new web series about a Goblin, Ban Sook, played by Bae In Hyuk, who has to kiss 10 humans to become human himself. Each time he kisses one, he gains a new emotion from them. On the other hand, Oh Yeonah, played by Jeon Hye Won, is a girl who has been disillusioned by men after her latest boyfriend cheated on her (not sure of the details yet).

The episodes are a short 11-12 minutes long, and there are only supposed to be 12 of them, so I thought this would be a good and easy series I could recap/review and hopefully keep up 🙂 As we know, I don’t have a good track record of that so far…

Select Love – Chapter 1

Hey guys, this is a book I’ve been writing called Select Love (for now), that was inspired by KDramas. Mostly it’s the location and style rather than happening. I’m uploading it on Wattpad for now and thought I’d double post here. enjoy ~

Chapter One

Despite the late morning breeze floating through the open window, I was feeling suffocated as I sat alone in the classroom staring at my open English textbook.

This was nothing new; I often felt suffocated at school. If I had a home, I would probably feel suffocated there as well.

It was hard to have a home when your father was dead and your mom kicked you out because you wouldn’t buy her any more alcohol.

For the past two weeks since I’d been kicked out of our tiny apartment, I’d spent most of my evenings at the sauna, but my funds were running desperately low and I had the depressing notion I would be spending the night on the streets today unless I skipped all my meals.

I wouldn’t usually mind skipping a meal or two, but I had been skipping too many of them lately and I was afraid I would faint if I didn’t eat anything today.

A sharp pain shot through my stomach, accentuating the fact I would need to eat something, and I clenched my fists to fight through the feeling. Fortunately the school provided a lunch or I would not have survived this long.

I let out a breath and closed my eyes. Suffocation. Would it be such a bad thing?

Of course, I wasn’t quite literally suffocating here. If it were up to the other students though, I think they wouldn’t mind if I did suffocate. They were the ones who made my days a nightmare after all. The taunts and harsh words, laughing at my apparent lack of hygiene, jealousy of my intelligence.

He is Psychometric Ep 9 Recap

I’m falling further and further behind in my recaps! Ah well, here is Episode 9 recap. I’ve already started on episode 10 recap, but for some reason this one took me a while to get all written up! Limited pictures today so I can get it out quickly… 🙁

Back in 2005 (November), Lee An and other children from the apartment complex are playing cops in the stairwell. They run into Seong Mo hanging out in the stair well, looking out the window. Lee thinks it’s odd that he’s not at school but he’s dressed in his school uniform.

Seong Mo brushes past him and into the elevator in which Jae In is currently riding. Lee An follows them and Jae In asks Seong Mo the same question, why he’s wearing his uniform but not going to school. This time he answers saying say that his mother doesn’t worry. The elevator stops and he gets out and limps away.

Lee An asks Jae In to play cops with him, and she says she will but right now she’s busy. We can see in her hands she holds the firetruck warning signs her father passes out to bring awareness to parking issues.

He is Psychometric Ep 8 Recap

After this episode (8) of He is Psychometric, we’ll be half way through the drama! I did watch this episode the day it aired, but I’m only getting around to writing a recap now, so I’ll throw in more pictures as an apology 😉

Guess how the episode starts? Yep, back in 2005.

This time it starts with Lee An and his dad talking to Seong Mo who’s just sitting on a bench watching the surroundings. Since Lee An’s father is a detective, he gives a business card to Seong Mo and tells him to call him if he ever needs help. Seong Mo’s sock is still stained with blood around the ankle.

He is Psychometric Ep 7 Recap

Time for another recap, here’s ep 7 of He is Psychometric! Well okay, past time! But here goes. And pictures because you deserve them.

And again we start back in time this time with Yoon Jae In and her father decorating a Christmas tree outside the apartment complex. Kang Seong Mo is walking by and Jae In notes that he’s limping again. Her father sees that Seong Mo’s sock is bloody, so he stops him and bandages his wound. Seong Mo is reluctant, but Jae In’s father says leaving small wounds can kill you. When her father leaves to get medicine, Jae In briefly manages to make Seong Mo smile.

He is Psychometric Ep 6 Recap

Hey guys, sorry for the late recap. It’s going to be (relatively) quick this time so I can catch up on new episodes too, but I’ll include some pictures to make up for it!

And yet again, in what I’m guessing is going to happen most every episode, we start back in 2005, with the man in the window who found Seong Mo and his mother. This time however, the scene goes on and we see that Seong Mo spotted the man in the window. Seong Mo tells his cowering mother to do exactly what he says, and by the time the creepy stalker arrives at their door, the place is empty.

Romance is a Bonus Book Review

And it’s time for a review of Romance is a Bonus Book! This show just ended relatively recently and I really wanted to get my thoughts on this drama put down on paper. Hopefully if you want a second opinion after watching it yourself or just want to figure out if you should actually start watching it, you’ll enjoy this read!

General Thoughts

My first general thoughts on this drama as it finished airing were all mostly positive. I enjoyed watching the characters on screen and rooted for them through the fairly laid back drama. My favorite part is the relationship between the two main characters and watching that blossom from a solid foundation was very fulfilling.

He is Psychometric Ep 5 Recap

And we’re back (albeit late) for a recap of He is Psychometric Episode 5! Once again, this episode starts back in 2005 with a scene of Seong Mo and his mother in room 701 of the apartment complex. The nosy building ladies come and knock on their door, and Seong Mo’s mother is afraid that ‘he’ has come. Someone who is obsessed with them and stalking them. After the women leave, we see someone from another building looking down at their room in the apartment saying he’s found them.

Cut back to the end of the last episode where Jae In, Lee An, and Seong Mo are meeting on the street in the evening and showing the scene from the perspective of a man dressed in black hiding in a nearby truck watching.
