Boys Over Flowers Episode 18 Review

WARNING: MAJOR JAEKYUNG RANTING AHEAD SO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK…

(This review is meant to be humorous so take it with a grain of salt…)

It’s that time of the week again and we all know what that means…

It’s another BOF day and it’s time once again to share my thoughts regarding the episode that was shown tonight, albeit in it’s unsubbed glory when i only rely on my powers of deduction and a few spoilers to fully comprehend what the actors are saying… (what can i say? There’s no excuse for being an addict…)

Thanks to lyptika’s kind heart (Bless her!), i was able to watch tonight’s episode only a few minutes later than those on streaming did… So this recap is not just brought to you by me but by lyptika’s youtube account as well and by the letters Y, R, S, P, M, O and J for You’re Really Starting to Piss me Off Jaekyung…

Let me start this recap with a word of advice to monkey girl..

Monkey Girl, when a normal hot blooded male who’s supposed to be your fiancee’ looks at you as if you’re a pariah even if you rub your scantily clad body all over him… BE ALARMED…

That reaction is NOT normal and maybe, just maybe there is still a logical part of your stubborn head where you can get it in that guys who tell you that they’re not INTO you may be meaning just that and it is not a secret code for “I FIND YOU SO LOVELY, THAT’S WHY I WILL TELL YOU THIS UNFEELINGLY AND MEAN THE OPPOSITE…”

Reality check… that meaning might only be your interpretation and you might just have had that understanding from a part of your brain that is labelled “WISHFUL THINKING” otherwise known as “DREAM ON…”

I also want to tell you that even if you cover your ears and start speaking in Parseltongue like some far removed descendant of Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter… there is no way that THAT can change and with that act, you’ve only managed to show how much of a brat you can be…

No respect from me there monkey girl… no respect at all…

Aside from that, how could you have called Jandi a friend and lied straight to her face about your illusion of spending the night with Junpyo? I could have forgiven you at first when you had no inkling at all about their real relationship and you were just being your normal, tactless self…. but now that you have a vague idea that Junpyo is Jandi’s ex… you have crossed the line and you just turned into a total BIATCH who hurts a friend and causes her unhappiness…

Oh wow! With Friends like you around, i might not need enemies… HOW LUCKY… (i’m being sarcastic here just in case you still need some explaining coz you seem to be a little slow on the uptake most of the time… which is by the way, another thing that irritates me about you…)

Please take note also that there is a fine line between trying to change your beloved’s mind about accepting you and being DESPERATE… Stalking him everywhere he goes and doing things for him like calling him Husband or fixing his food for him or lying down on his bed even if he OBVIOUSLY does not appreciate it, sadly falls into the category of the latter…

You seem like a decent girl, you came from a good family and you’re pretty in your own way… Somewhere out there, i’m sure there is a masochist who can appreciate your nasally grating voice, your penchant for eating jumbo ramens which can feed a starving family for days by yourself and your oh so attractive virtue of being thickfaced…

Can’t you just look for that man and start sacrificing for Jandi as a friend as early as now? I promise i won’t be as mean if that happens…

However in the spirit of being fair, i truly give you an A for effort for being resilient and for trying so hard… emphasis on TRYING HARD… Man, nothing really fazes you nor humiliates you… not rejection in any way, form or kind or a refusal that is sooo obvious that the only thing lacking is for it to be shoved down your throat… NOSIRREEE…SUPER!

Why don’t you try a career in selling insurance? I’m sure you would be top seller in no time! Or better yet… why don’t you drug Junpyo and torture him into liking you? I’m sure he’d appreciate that… SUPER!

And Junpyo, Junpyo, Junpyo… why is it that everytime i steel myself against you and tell myself that i’ve had enough of your self-pity and wallowing in your Jandi deprived moments, i still can’t abandon you?

There’s just a pushover chord in me that you touch with your abundance of flashbacks and recollection of times gone by that sometimes i marvel at your photographic memory…

There was something inside me that just wanted to shout IN YOUR FACE when you learned about Jandi’s injury and i admit that the JunDi butterflies inside my stomach did a little flip when you once again broke down beside the swimming pool…

CRY, JUNPYO, CRY… (on second thought DON’T since it just makes me want to comfort you…hehehe!)

And it’s about time you did something in order to get Jandi back… Your moments together for this episode might have been short but just seeing you two together in one scene is enough to bring a smile to my face… (NOW… KISS TORRIDLY and MAKE OUT… i mean MAKE UP…)

Moving on, I’d be saying this for the first time, but i was thinking maybe Jihoo needs to be given something else to do… Let him play the violin once again or conduct an orchestra or rest his cheeks against posters on a bus stop like some crazy obsessed stalker but please do not give him more free time to spend with Jandi… Honestly, the more that Jihoo gets to know her and falls in love with her, the more he breaks my heart…

Heaven knows that my JunDi ship is desperately trying to stay afloat despite the recent going ons but the more i see Jihoo with Jandi, the more i wish that i can do a King Solomon and split Jandi into two so that Jihoo and Junpyo can get a piece each… Jihoo deserves Jandi as much as Junpyo does and it just frustrates me to no end how in the end, he would still not get what he deserves…

When i see Jandi and Jihoo together there’s just a cold place in my heart that was left with the JunDi breakup that suddenly gets warm and toasty and PEACEFUL…

If this was the real world and Jihoo was real… I have no doubt in my mind that his name would have already been sent to the Vatican for canonization or otherwise to the producers of THE BACHELOR for a possible stint… wehehehe!

(Who among you here squealed like a fangirl when he held Jandi’s hand and waited for her in the library *me jumps up and down while raising my hands*)

As for Jandi, Hurrah for getting your spunk back and going all Womens Lib on Junpyo’s butt for this episode… The time for getting all sappy and teary eyed is over and it is time to fight back… you gutsy girl, you… (I still wished that she kicked him out of her house and poured the ramen all over his head but her answering Junpyo back with her usual sarcastic wit is enough for me right now…)

However, sarcastic facade aside, there is no denying that we, women are suckers for love and despite the heartbreak that Jandi went through at Junpyo’s hands, i was still very touched when she kept him company while sleeping and put that blanket over his sleeping form… (Oh the discipline of this girl… if my Boyfriend was as hot as Junpyo and it’s obvious that he’s still into me, i would make an excuse to Kang San about delivering newspapers in the middle of the night to BUSAN perhaps and spend the night getting cozy with him… wehehehe!)

PS: Jandi, No need to drop your fork when JaeKyung tells you how she spent the night with Junpyo… Now’s the time to act… don’t get sad… GET EVEN…

I would love to see you get down and dirty with Junpyo, make a video out of it and send it to Jaekyung while giving a blow by blow account of how much Junpyo enjoyed your sexy time together…

Maybe then Jaekyung’s blood pressure would shoot up to 200/180 and she’d pop a vein and that would be the end of her story (or at least get her to shut her trap up…)… PUAHAHAHA!

Other Comments:

* WTH? Don’t we have enough angst in the show that even Woobin turned emo? I love him when he’s funny so give us more of that PD… I know that there are some complaints about him getting almost zero airtime but please don’t just do a lame subplot just because you want to give in to the clamor of the fans…

Give me back Woobin with his chicken feet and Oh Yeah and dorky dance and leave all the emo moments to the F3…

I, however thought that he was absolutely hot during the bar fight scene so i am drawing a truce with that scene you made of him wanting to jump off the bridge in exchange for that…

* Loving the second OST to bits i swear!

* I adore the pottery making session recollection of Yijung with Eun Jae… how i wish that it was with Gaeul but that scene was totally cute… (Why oh why does the F4 have such sucky lovelives?)

* Thank God Mama Kang decided fly away to focus on the family business this time, instead of giving all her attention to ruining her son’s life… Is there anywhere written in future scripts where she is involved and a plane crash would happen? Episode 19 perhaps? Please Lord let there be one… hahaha!

I hope tomorrow’s episode would have more JunDi Lovin’… It’s about darned time…
