So much forward momentum, and not missing a beat serving the lols and awwws. This is the episode I’ve grown fonder of so many characters after knowing more about them, I have firmly formed my OTP ship. There is a new shipping I know it’s very wrong but I can’t help but WANT!

Love is in the air. The manhwabang must have water (or ramyun) laden with various love pheromones of the strongest kind.

Cheers everyone! ‘Tis the time of another year passing and wishing for a better one yet to come. Merry Christmas for those of us who are celebrating. Happy holidays!
One downside of watching ILICDD, crazy ramyun cravings. I’m quite sick, throat is raw and sore, partly from laughing my arse off rewatching this baby.

Guys, we have SKINSHIP!
We finally are spending time with HJ in her element, her home turf: the manhwabang, where she has a reputation as the Manhwabang Ahjumma. We know very well she’s a most hilarious and creative liar, but we can feel the shame and guilt and the frustration of her heart tugging attempts trying to fit in. At the manhwabang she can be totally herself, ie PURE AWESOME!

I love laughing till I’m rolling on the floor crying. There are a few scenes in this episode doing this to me, punch after punch, wasting no scene, nor time.

*Is this the hardest day to just be that or Is this the hardest day?!?! RIP. T__T *
This is the episode that I’ve fallen in love with this little drama with SO MUCH HEART and never look back.
Things are heading up for the CDD shabbiest boarding house, but life isn’t that easy, is it?

HyeJa is at the Morning Club, the other ajummas are waxing poetic on something about sadness is emerald in color, blind angel gazing and Moebius strip.
HJ: What was that all about?! …Stop speaking in tongue!

I had never thought stooges are my type. But I had not seen a masterpiece in the form of a daily sitcom with 3-digit # of episodes, then. And Rule of Threes totally ROCKS.

Ep2 started…spooky! But I ended up having a muscle memory of how much I laughed till I almost peed my pants.

It’s been nearly 5 months.
Any mention of ILICDD still gives me a rush of happy emotions and warm feelings that can only explained by pheromones of LOVE. Even in my current state of mind, ie I’m no longer in a daze and complete shock at every turn how !#$%^&*^&%$%!##$$^%#!$^%@&$*%&#%^^$ perfect it is because I know that for a fact now. I’m rewatching properly this time most rationally (yes I’ve rewatched some eps here and there pimping it to peeps around me) and it still hits me where it delivers spectacularly.
I’m picking the one and only drama as my fav of 2012 to go batshitcrazy.
This has been sitting in my draft for a month and I’ve tried to attempt serious, avoid spoilers…no avail. I’ve deleted 3 drafts completely and this is what I’ve decided to post. A 5 year old can quite possibly write something more eloquent and sensible.
Oh, well. This is for my merriment anyway.
**There will be lots of spoilers. I’m trying to keep them from spoiling the fun. Trying……but failing.**
