Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

by: Raine

Episode 11 eeked up a tad to 9.8%. It’s negligable. As is my love for this show at the moment.

This recap was really hard to start. I just didn’t want to do it. The show is so confusing. But then it sucks me in. Then I get annoyed. Then I squee. Help. I need therapy to watch it.

Special thanks to Hitomiakiko from Akiko’s Morning Coffee for doing some translation for me! Actually, she does it a lot and it’s a lifesaver. She’s sweet about it and I appreciate it. Please check out her site as a thank you from me and those who enjoy my recaps. They’re not possible without her.

Fashion King: Episode 11 Recap

Episode 10 dropped a percentage point to 9.6%. I can’t really blame viewers. This show is suffering from severe multiple personality disorder.

So this website is called “Raine’s Dichotomy“. I think my emotions this episode really embody that. Brain versus heart. I was dreading writing this recap because I really didn’t think I knew what to write besides exactly what happened. My brain was completely appalled. My heart was moved.

Fashion King: Episode 9 Recap

by: Raine

Ratings rose according to AGB Neilsen from 9.0% to 9.7% for Episode 8. I bet it has to do with the OTP finally getting some screen time together and showing a bit of chemistry..

This is the episode where Young-gul and Ga-young’s romance could’ve started. But a few monkey wrenches get thrown in. I’m sure we will have a whole mess of misunderstandings caused by secrets and lack of communication starting next episode. As for this one, I should hate Jae-hyuk. I really should. And I should think Young-gul’s jealousy is stupid because he doesn’t say anything to Ga-young. Should. But these boys are too cute. An-na is pathetic. Ga-young needs to step up and affect change herself instead of riding the tide.

Fashion King: Episode 8 Recap

by: Raine

I’m hijacking my own post. There has been an earthquake near Indonesia and now there are worries for a possible tsunami. I pray it doesn’t happen. Be safe my Southeast Asian chingus!!!!!! This post is dedicated to you.

Episode 7, according to AGB Nielson, dropped to 9.0%, decreasing by 1.4%. I’m not sure if I disagree. The menfolk, besides the sexiness, were severely unlikable. An-na, too. In fact, Ga-young was the only likeable one and she was a little bit pathetic.

This episode really started to show some solid character development. Jae-hyuk masks his wounded pride and loneliness in violence, money and power. Ga-young is faced with trials and again shows some gumption. Young-gul is learning to care for someone besides himself. An-na…is a bump on a log…a really, really pretty bump.
