[Drama Review + Giveaway] "Pinocchio" - Episode 16, winner announced, Caption Contest Giveaway

While the Dal Po and In Ha pair becomes somewhat of an on-and-off couple, other ships start sailing, keeping viewers entertained during an otherwise uneventful episode.

This episode took the main couple"s relationship a step backwards. Just as we were about to celebrate Dal Po and In Ha"s reunion, In Ha pulls out because she feels too apologetic towards Dal Po for her mother"s actions. What? I thought we just established in episode 15 that In Ha doesn"t need to feel sorry because her mother"s actions are not her fault. I don"t expect In Ha to realize this by herself, but I thought that Dal Po would at least say something, even repeat Beom Jo"s lecture word for word. What if Cha Ok never apologizes to Dal Po? Will In Ha continue to feel eternally sorry towards Dal Po then and never feel comfortable enough to be in a relationship with him? That would be ridiculous.

As for the news world, although it was interesting to see MSC and YGN struggle between covering the Winter Olympics and the fire accident, I was somewhat disappointed by the ending we were given. Viewers figured that Cha Ok and Ro Sa were directly involved in vilifying Ho Sang a long time ago. As heartbreaking as it was to see Beom Jo and In Ha react to their mothers" cruel schemes, I wish we could"ve seen a little more in the texts. I expected a whole batch of politicians and big businesses to be involved in this. Ro Sa is evidently working with multiple connections; I just want more of a peek into just how big and widespread her manipulative scheme is. Leaving us with the evidence that simply shows Ro Sa and Cha Ok working together 13 years ago came as a "Well no DUH" moment for me.

Moments of frustration aside, I felt that the supporting characters really brought this episode to life. Reporter Jang especially shined in this episode when he was robbed of his line by In Ha, fooled by Dal Po, and when he heroically rose to the occasion, complete with a hilariously dramatic high-five-turned-hand-lock with camerawoman Im Jae Hwan (Choo Soo Hyun). Captain Pil Mo and Yoo Rae even shared a moment that was cute, possibly even… shippable? Hey, who knows!

Highlights:

We start off with an invitation a la casa del Dal Po. Bow chicka wow wow.

Ohayyyy skinship? Bow chicka wow wow.

Aaaand the romance is ruined. Awkwardness ensues. 

Looks like Grampa Gong Pil does not appreciate the EXO music. 

Ouuuuuch that burn doe. 

"Yaaaay we"re finally happy!"

"Jk, let"s stop." Wait WHAT. 

Shut DOWN. 

Whoa, is that In Ha confiding in her mom?

Whoa, and is that Cha Ok actually CARING?! #icequeenismelting #hallelujah

Interesting points we"re seeing about what news should be. I agree with In Ha that news should reflect what we should see, but Cha Ok makes a good point by reminding us that news stations operate more like businesses than teaching tools.

And then we have Yoo Rae making points like this.

Pil Mo be like, "I like the way you think girl.

"Tenks Cap."

Meanwhile Dal Po owns everyone by telling Reporter Jang he has pancreatic cancer. Lol, poor Jang. 

Omo.

Omo omo

Epic face of heartbreak, on the brink of crying:

STOP FEELING SORRY FOR THINGS THAT AREN"T YOUR FAULT GIRL. 

You and me both, Dal Po. 

And we end with Beom Jo"s tears. Poor baby :(.

[Drama Review + Giveaway] "Pinocchio" - Episode 15, winner announced, Caption Contest Giveaway

This week is leaving us "Pinocchio" viewers short of one episode. I was looking forward to seeing our reporters kick some chaebol ass, and we are making some progress. However, the major development in this episode turns out to be not the news mission but the relationship between Dal Po (yes--he"s Dal Po again!) and In Ha.

Dal Po and In Ha are back on track with their budding romance. Their reunion was meant to happen sooner or later, but I"m satisfied with how it happened. The fact that they wanted to go on a break was understandable--Dal Po felt distracted and held back by his relationship with In Ha when focusing on his revenge against her mother. Now that In Ha is totally on board with exposing her mom"s wrongdoings, though, the break doesn"t seem as necessary anymore.

I"m glad that Beom Jo was able to open Dal Po"s eyes to how much In Ha was suffering while worrying from afar. He made a good point that In Ha shouldn"t have to feel sorry just because she"s Cha Ok"s daughter. In the end, she and Dal Po are on the same side anyway.

Our band of reporters Dal Po, In Ha, Beom Jo, and Yoo Rae are nearing closer and closer to the truth about the recent fire incident, leaving Cha Ok visibly shaken. We got a lot of shots of Cha Ok appearing panicked, especially when she notices the cell phone, which contains the texts In Ha used to send her, was missing. At first I thought Cha Ok felt guilty for disappointing her daughter. The looks they exchanged when parting at the elevator were powerful, especially with In Ha giving her mother a crestfallen stare. But when Cha Ok says to herself at some point, "It"s alright, it"s alright. I erased everything," she seems to indicate that there"s incriminating information in that cell phone--perhaps regarding her relationship with Beom Jo"s mother, Ro Sa.

Now that the cell phone is in In Ha"s hands, it"s up to In Ha to find that information. Though, I wonder what will become of this mother-daughter pair once all of Cha Ok"s wrongdoings are exposed? Can the relationship still be repaired or will the show have the estranged family members cut off ties once and for all?

Aside from Dal Po"s surprise kiss for In Ha at the end, this episode didn"t have anything too exciting happening in it. I"m guessing this is all just build-up for something epic to come--which will hopefully unfold sometime next week!

Highlights:

Really? Of all things, you"re really going to criticize him about his posture? 

You"d hope so--but people"s negativity and hate are also stronger than you think. 

HUG-BLOCKED.

Gong Joo pulling off the cutest headdesk.

Not cool, bro, not cool. All you did after this was silently creep on In Ha anyway!

The fact that she can say this while still looking like a sweetheart is goosebump-inducing.

Oh God, that"s got to hurt. 

Is he not allowed to celebrate his child"s birthday? Sigh, this is what happens when you invite reporters I guess. 

What is this. Is the Ice Queen Cha Ok actually feeling something like... like... remorse?! 

Yoo Rae and her aegyo game doe. 

She"s cute even when she"s drunkenly yelling at a piece of egg roll, lol. Poor girl. 

Intense stares. 

More intense stares. 

Now kiss

Yaaaaasssss finally! No more of this "Dal-Po-I-mean-Ha-Myeong" nonsense.

[Drama Review + Giveaway] "Pinocchio" - Episode 11, Winner Announced, + Caption Contest Giveaway!

After trying his best to protect Jae Myeong and In Ha by lying here and there, Dal Po resolves to focus on being a good reporter and get his family justice via the news world rather than on being a good brother or a good boyfriend.

Dal Po has had this desire to be more truthful in broadcasts for a while now--ever since episode 7--but we"ve definitely seen him stumble after realizing the likely possibility of his brother being a murderer. Conflicted over wanting to protect his brother, he covers for Jae Myeong, allowing him to enjoy his moment of fame for just a bit longer. His feelings for In Ha have also hindered him from going against his enemies in the news world with full force. We saw in episode 10 that when Dal Po finally had the opportunity to "howl" at Cha Ok in front of everybody, he couldn"t do it with In Ha in his peripheral vision. In the end, In Ha had to step up and do the public rebuking for him.

Dal Po realizes that in order to be the just, truthful reporter that he wants to be, he has to turn Jae Myeong in to the police and (temporarily?) take a break from In Ha. Surprisingly, both Jae Myeong and In Ha are already steps ahead of Dal Po; they both make the first move, showing Dal Po just how much they want to see him accomplish his goals. While Jae Myeong texts Dal Po evidence of his murder to nudge him in the right direction, In Ha breaks up with Dal Po.

I like the progress this episode made, but I have to say that the plot twist pulled at the end, when Jae Myeong reveals that he actually wanted Dal Po to turn him in all along, was a weird surprise. This drama is usually good at shocking the viewers, especially with its fast pace when it comes to revelations and developments, but for some reason, I had a hard time accepting that Jae Myeong would set this up. I know that Jae Myeong is a kind soul deep down, but prior to this, we saw a really dark side of him, so dark that he was going on a killing rampage. He hasn"t just killed one person--he"s killed three, and he was on his way to making that murder toll go up to five. He has been really committed to this revenge up to now; it seems strange that he would allow Dal Po to take his operation revenge down a more peaceful, less violent route.

I"m also really curious as to what Dal Po"s idea of revenge is. Does he plan to just make Cha Ok look bad on TV? Destroy her news channel? Ruin her news career?

As for Dal Po"s breakup with In Ha, as sad as it was, we K-Drama viewers knew it had to happen at some point. K-Dramas always invent a way to separate the lead couple and then bring them back together in the end for a happy reunion. Usually K-Dramas use reasons such as family disapprovals, car accidents, amnesia, secret illnesses, etc. to tear their star-crossed lovers apart. I appreciate that In Ha and Dal Po"s breakup didn"t rely on such cliches and was actually for Dal Po"s own good. I"m predicting that they will probably get back together once Dal Po gets his revenge, so I"m not too worried about this couple"s future.

Highlights:

We start with a reminder of what hyung said in the past...

... and what actually happened. Sad reunion is sad :(

And then the awkward small talk. I expected more hugs and happiness than this, but considering the circumstances, I guess it makes sense that they"re not leaping for joy. 

In Ha manhandling Beom Jo like a bawss. 

Leaving Beom Jo to feel like a loser. Aww, poor puppy. 

Wow. Gong Joo is one of the nicest bosses ever, giving In Ha a day off for giving a higher up a verbal smackdown in public. Would this ever happen in real life? Probably not. 

Go Dong makes another really nice boss, letting Dal Po do whatever he needs to do to protect his brother from the news. Would this ever happen in real life? It would be nice if it did. 

]

Of course, Yoo Rae doesn"t find Go Dong so nice, assigning her awesome story to Dal Po instead of her. Dat pout. 

Okay, the blame game here was a bit ridiculous. You can"t blame a guy who was in high school at the time for his mother"s decisions. You don"t know he could"ve stopped her. You don"t know that she wouldn"t have just tried again and again. 

You can"t completely blame Cha Ok, either, because, again, it was the mom"s decision in the end. Not anyone else"s. 

You can"t blame yourself, either, because it was your brother"s decision to murder!! Of course, it"s understandable why Dal Po would blame himself, why Jae Myeong would decide to just waste his life away killing other people, but if the awesome drama "I Hear Your Voice" taught us anything, you"re responsible for your own actions (Min Joon Gook, I"m lookin" at you). You can"t blame anyone for provoking you. You have a choice. You can stop yourself. 

Looks like Yoo Rae had one too many shots of soju.

"Ew.

"Nah, nah it"s good. I"ll just attach this bag to ma face." #drunksolutions

"Kay, back to reducing Dal Po to an eggroll.

We"ve all seen this before. Second lead has a chance to be the hero. 

But I don"t think I"ve seen this before! Second lead does the most heroic thing possible and calls up the boyfriend. Major, major, MAJOR points, Beom Jo.

When your daughter looks like she"s gonna vomit...

...just cover her with a coat. #DalPyeongsolutions

Ohayyy, couple shirts! 

Oh, is he? I wonder what Dal Pyeong"s been up to lately. 

Drunk In Ha is strangely nonchalant about the idea of Dal Po leaving her. Guess alcohol makes you numb to both judgment and emotions. 

D"awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. 

In Ha continues to be a bawss this episode as she tells Dal Po to get it together.

Then proceeds to give him the saddest. Kiss. Ever.

The heart wants what it wants, bruh. 

Ahhh the dream he had about In Ha and his family back in episode 3 makes sense now. Dal Po"s wish is to live in harmony with his family and In Ha, but in reality, his family has broken down and In Ha is a distraction from his getting his family"s revenge.

Soooo... how did Dal Po not recognize his brother"s phone number? Did Jae Myeong get a new phone just so he could set this all up? Why did Dal Po not question how his informant knew his number? 

Well, with this random plot twist, Dal Po now moves onward to get his family"s revenge.

Caption Contest: And now for the caption contest winner! Last week, we asked for you to come up with a caption for an episode 9 screencap. Congratulations to RhondaGore for coming up with the winning caption!:

Your prize? San E"s autographed second mini album "NOT"! You"ll be receiving a private message shortly for further instructions on receiving your prize. Congratulations!
