Recapped!: My Mister (Episode 14)

YOOOOOO…hold on! Hold On!

SPOILERALERT

Okay, okay! YOOOOOOOO! Listen….

Alright so I love the structure of this episode tremendously. I’m sure the show as a whole has followed this sort of format, and I only now have caught on but—today we got the sort of emotional victory for secondary characters like Jung-Hee and Director Yoon (with his PUNK Ah). Without further ado guys–

1. We kick things off with a lot of calls and text messages this episode. But after the digital traffic slows down. The owner of the company Dong-Hoon works for, commands his underlings to decide on a new director by the end of the day! Long story short,

Dong-Hoon wins the vote and becomes the newest director!

2. The celebration at Jung hee’s gets awkward (as they do) and she’s finally able to emotional and symbolically toast away her past twenty-something years of resentment and utterly devastating anguish. In short, Jung-Hee finally moves on!

3. Dong-Hoon’s superior who was fired early on in the show, finds and captures (police do) the young man (Ki-Beom) working in cohoots with Lee Ji-Ahn. With Ki-Beom being captured and questioned, it’s only a matter of time before Ji-Ahn is arrested as well. What’s most interesting about all this is WHO wants WHAT to happen. Acting CEO of the company, Do Joon-Young, seems to have resigned to his destiny of being ousted, fired, and possibly even worse, but He refuses to go down alone. Which leads to biggest, messiest reveal yet…

4. Dong-Hoon learns of his phone having been wiretapped by Lee Ji-Ahn and the World is coming to an end. Give Thanos the go-ahead to snap his fingers! So now that he knows. What Lee Ji-Ahn knows. What Do Joon-Young knows. What Lee Ji-Ah knows. We can all perish in utter anguish…alone…but knowing that it’s also happening to the people all around you as well. I mean the show is SO GOOD at revving up the stakes in this steady, thumping…like a headache slowly, but viciously transforming into the kind of migraines ya’ gave your parents when you were young. Yes, you!

5. Dong-Hoon’s thrashing of CEO Do Joon-Young HAS to come up at some point right? Is their culture so accepting of people getting punched in the face (LOL) Like, I wonder if Do Joon-Young like complained about it to someone and was told to man-up or block next time. LOL. Alright, I’ll leave him alone. But seriously, the deconstruction of Do Joon-Young is a magnificent, glorious scene of a train-wreck. Actor Kim Young-Min is good in nearly every scene he’s in and I really wanna see where they take his character!

Who knows what the last two episodes will bring to the light, but one thing’s for sure: I AM NOT PREPARED FOR WHAT THE TEASER TRAILER SHOWED US. I AM NOT.

Because if what I think I saw happened. HAPPENED. I’m gonna be a bawling mess by series end. Like for real though. But what about you? Give me your thoughts on the show so far at thenexcrewteam@gmail.com!

 

Recapped!: My Mister (Epi.13)

WOW! The emotional feels and connections we got in this episode of My Mister! As we dive headlong into a season ending explosion of which no one will emerge unscathed from; here is the obligatory–

SPOILERALERT

Thing we got from this episode:

  1. I’d like to take this moment in time to focus on an aspect of the plot I’ve sort of left on the cutting room floor: That being Ji-An’s brother? Or Her friend? I think he’s actually a close friend that she considers a brother? Not sure. For the sake of this spoiler: Ji-An’s brother’s cover has been BLOWN AF! And now he’s on the run, with Ji-An sure to be next! Which leads me to the next reveal here,
  2. Ji-An is screwed SIX WAYS TO SUNDAY! She had been the literal embodiment of “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t” for quite sometime, and was even (eerily) comfortable in that chaos. Now though, it feels like she’s really at the point where she can either spill the beans and come clean on her part in this whole scandal, or risk being ousted another unceremonious way. With only a matter of time before Ji-An’s scheme is blown open by detectives; Should she expose the company’s CEO and take him down with her? Or should she continue to play things by ear?
  3. Dong-Hoon and his wife are in a weird place. Like relationship wise. It’s like their bond died and went to this weird, awkward, but somehow dignified, phony place where they still make sure to sip their tea while perpetually side-eyeing one another. It’s rough. Are they gonna divorce? Also—
  4. Dong-Hoon’s brothers now know about him being cheated on and their reactions are pretty much what you’d expect. The oldest weeps and blames it on his failing business. The youngest swears a lot and literally wants to fight..someone! Anyone! He even yells he wants to fight his brother to keep from beating up his sister-in-law! Dude’s temper is something else!
  5. Yoooooo….Jeong-Hee (owner of the bar that Park Dong-Hoon and his buddies practically live at) confronts her ex (The monk that is Dong-Hoon’s best friend) and WEEPS OUT ALL HER FRUSTRATIONS WITH HIM! For me it was easily the most emotional part of the episode and I REALLY wanna see them back together somehow! Jeong-Hee is a wreck without him. Although, realistically I’d like to see her (with emotional support from friends) pick herself back up and slowly begin to move on past the failed relationship. It’s just not healthy, Jeong-Hee!
  6. Executive Director Wang is trash. And yes this episode was full of moments where Ji-An and others were putting him in his place (indirectly and directly). I feel like after awhile, living like such an insufferable piece of trash will undoubtedly catch up with you. And I cannot wait to see this guy get the ultimate comeuppance if and when Dong-Hoon wins the Director position!

Alright, next recapped! of My Mister should be out this Friday, so stay tuned! Lemme know your thoughts about the show by sending them to thenexcrewteam@gmail.com

Recapped!: My Mister (Episodes 10-12)

SPOILERALERT

Alright so after another handful of episodes, My Mister continues to stand the test of time! The story of Dong-Hoon and  Ji-Ahn continues to delve further and further into a singular one, albeit with shared friends and foes alike. Here’s a breakdown of really the biggest revelation we need to know:

  1.  At this point in the story: PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY EXCEPT DONG-HOON’s BROTHERS AND MOM!
  2. Dong-Hong’s fight with Ki-Yong ended in a draw (more or less) but it made Ki-Yong think twice about confronting Dong-Hong directly.
  3. Dong-Hong and his wife FINALLY sit down and try to talk things out. It doesn’t seem to go horribly well though, as they still seem bent on divorce.
  4. Ji-Ahn, on Dong-Hong’s insistence, has begone to integrate with her co-workers and Dong-Hong’s family as well at Jung-hee’s bar. It’s really a joy to see her really get to be a human and not a cold, calculating swindler.
  5. The race for new director really took a strong turn after Dong-Hoon PUNCHED THE CEO IN THE FACE!

We won’t get episodes 13 and 14 for a whole nother’ week which hurt me a lot more than I’m willing to admit! It does give me a chance to seek out other shows and movies to digest though!
