Should We Kiss First was moved to a quickcap spot this week due to the finale for Radio Romance followed by The Great Seducer aftercap and then Waikiki all airing on Monday and Tuesday. We didn’t want to do it too quickly, so we decided to recap it at the end of the day. But luckily we were able to watch it today pretty quickly.
Mu-han is pretty upset at Soon-jin and she can’t figure out for the life of her why. But she isn’t the kind of person that will just take that ish and has her own way of dealing with Mu-han. I love that about Soon-jin and I am also happy that the angst didn’t last long. But word is getting out about MH’s health so I am hesitant to think that his condition will remain a secret for much longer.
Y’all, this drama gets me right in that whimsically lost reverie that I want to live in well after it finishes airing. After Should We Kiss First goes off, I just want to sink into all my warm feelings and not do anything else but enjoy the afterglow of this gorgeous drama. It is the SWKF afterglow, y’all. The ending/epilogue of the last episode was just perfect. Mu-han was having a hard time keeping the cars away from them in the cold and snow; he was squinting and tired, but as soon as Soon-jin yelled, “Are you Okay” from the movie from their past, he perked right up as if that thought alone from their shared youth gave him strength.
After Misty, Should We Kiss First is my favorite show out right now. It is definitely my favorite romance out. I love the awkwardness, the bumbling seduction, the reserved emotion…it is just wonderful. The +19 scenes are hilarious and so hard to translate on the spot because one meaning means two different things. Actually, all of Soon-jin and Mu-han’s scenes play with words a lot because SJ is always saying something in the wrong way. We read that even the actors are confused by it sometimes….”Ah, normal position?” That had me rooooollliiiiiing. I know the melo is coming, but before all that, can I just get some more sexy-awkward scenes with our main couple?
This show just keeps getting deeper and more intricate as more of how SJ and Mu-han’s lives are interwoven together. I kind of love how Mu-han remembers every single thing about Soon-jin, but she is basically clueless about him. It makes me wonder if we will also start to see her memory of those events coming back. It also puts a more poignant dagger on that one short comment she told Mu-han about forgetting so many things in her past.
Our first aftercap for Should We Kiss First! For all my Waikiki peeps, we are moving Waikiki to recap right after we finish this one! We will post it completely done as soon as we finish.
We are going to move Should We Kiss First as our aftercap and move Waikiki to the nightcap spot. We love Waikiki, we just love Should We Kiss First more, we are so anxious to find out what happens at the beginning of each episode!
This episode dives deeper into the lives of MH and what happened at the zoo all those years ago. We see SJ trying her hardest to seduce MH, but she is not the best at seduction and we also get a little taste of what SJ is capable of when she is pissed off. I was shocked.
Don’t let the image deceive you. There are a lot of laughs and light in Should We Kiss First, which is what makes me love it. Herein lies the next two episodes which also aired on Tuesday of this week, right after the premier. They showed both episodes in one day due to the Olympics, which meant that we were covering 3 dramas and 5 episodes on Tuesday, good Lord, I will be so happy when everything goes back to normal next week. I love the Olympics (I mean did you see the women of USA vs Canada battling it out in hockey!) but I am not so thrilled with what it is doing with my drama watching schedule.
I really hoped Should We Kiss, First? (키스 먼저 할까요) was a solid drama because we dropped Cross in order to recap it. Y’all, I am happy to say that it is, it is so good, it has an old school USA romantic comedy vibe to it that gives me all sorts of warm feelings. Right away I got a vibe of You’ve Got Mail with Kim Soon-ah taking on the Meg Ryan role and Kam Woo-sung portraying Tom Hanks. This story is all sorts of different though. A woman isn’t trying to save her quant bookstore from a huge conglomerate that is about to take all their business. Yet somehow, it still evokes the same feeling.
