Rants and Weekly Raves (RAWR) #421

Anne: Hi there Everyone! I have been, as regular, inundated with paperwork. And of class, striving to figure out why a 6 12 months aged is heading as a result of the “teenage” tough a long time. I am looking at him and pondering…hm… this can get “even worse”?! 

This week’s article will be truly quick, and it is largely a drop by just so every person is aware that I am even now retaining up with the website (and hoping that a thing better will air at some position in advance of the 12 months is out). Let’s get on with chatting about the pair of demonstrates I’ve managed to observe in the very last two weeks.

Tracer (period 1 and 2)

Sure, I am a little late to this drama. Even though the 2nd on aired in 2022, it was the initially quarter of 2022. I’ve only caught it now because equally appeared on Viki.

In circumstance anybody hasn’t see this, it is about Hwang Dong Joo trying to get revenge for the loss of life of his father. The act that he blamed on In Tae Joon, the recent director of the regional tax office environment. The to start with period attributes Dong Joo solving some tax challenges and proving the “Gold Hard cash” corporation was corrupt and pressuring it truly is borrowers to indicator up for accidental insurance plan and then offering them the “accident”. Of system, it also handles Oh Young’s increase and his purpose in Website positioning Hey Young’s family’s suicide. The 2nd year picks up instantly immediately after the first, and it is in this just one in which we notice that Dong Joo may possibly have not particularly know the entire entire tale of his father’s loss of life and the strategies that his father was involved in.

This is will experience pretty similar to any individual who has watched any Korean revenge dramas. There is a hero with tough childhood and parental problems. There is a heroine with a complementary tragic past. A mentor who is flawed but normally, possibly the the very least flawed character of the drama. And a sprinkle of other side figures. What I most like about this is that we are nonetheless able to be “stunned”, or at least I was. I surely did NOT see this coming as the reveal.

Or relatively the identity of the “human being” who was undertaking the act. 

Now, the tempo of this could be sped up a bit, and I do admit that I FF part of the “interior contemplation” scenes. But I do like this very a little bit, for a revenge/mystery drama.

Strange Tale of Tang Dynasty

I started off this because it is a interval investigative drama…how could I not watch this?! I haven’t gone quite considerably and I am only on episode 7. The tale is about Su Wu Ming, a lowly investigator, and Ling Feng, a typical of some type of guard, staff alongside one another to clear up some, supernatural crimes. The 1st several episodes, you are launched to a collection of disconnected situations that involved lacking brides (or relatively brides that had been “kidnapped” and then killed) and this Chang’an Red Tea that is all the rage (a tea so costly that persons are likely bankrupt to invest in it…I assumed it was produced with some sort of addicted drug or anything). The tea is also served in the palace and this “link” and what may perhaps or may not be the origin gets Ling Feng demoted and stripped of all his titles/properties in 1 FELL swoop! There is also the vintage “expose” of the very first undesirable man. The initially arc is completed with the first bad people today out of the way, but there is no apparent resolution for this pink tea. 

I do like this drama. With the investigative factors that is much more X-file like than Sherlock Holmes. But there is A single detail I can not stand (so considerably…maybe she will improve later on)..Pei Xi Jun… This female is obsessed with marrying Ling Feng, but she initially mistaken him for somebody else. Indeed, you’ve got go through that correct, she thought he was an individual ELSE. Did her obsession lessen when she realize that he wasn’t the just one she desired to marry? Nope, of training course not. As any correct stalker, she just transferred her obsession to Ling Feng. I so so so hope that her character will get far better…since she is troublesome and blocking me from experiencing the drama.

At a overall of 36 episodes…there may possibly nevertheless be hope for her.

And that is all for the very last two months. Here’s hoping I can get additional time to catch up on dramas up coming time!
