Rich Family's Son - Episode 10 (KimJiCap)

kakashi: Amaaaazing stuff happens, totally amazing.
JoAnne: Don't worry, folks. I can't always tell when she's being sarcastic either.

JoAnne: Some of us are still getting snow (on APRIL 19th!!!) and some of us are sitting outside in our bare feet enjoying our patios and flowers. I have no flowers yet (well, daffodils and crocus) but things are swelling green and I'm starting to believe this winter might actually end.  Fingers crossed!
Trotwood: I had to use the collapsible snow shovel I keep in my car this past week. I still have not taken out my spare snow boots, wool socks, and lined pants I keep in the car. I'm not going to believe until June. πŸ˜” However, I'm using recapping and figuring out near gibberish subs to get me through end of school year trauma drama.
Saki: I am still sick.  Hence Tientsin Mystic recaps continue to go very slowly. 
panda: I am hanging in there...
All of this just means I'm ALONE

I wake and lay, curled up in a ball, surprised to be waking at all.

Immediately, the cold starts to gnaw at me. When I take a breath, the air spins like metal shards in my lungs.

Where am I? I look above to see the sky has turned into a dome of ice. The clear slabs of aquamarine gleam like a mirror one second, then diffuse to a milky blueness the next by the rising vapor formed from my breath.

The pond has turned out quite well, Mo Yuan thought and surveyed his work with a considerable amount of pride. It’s actually rather small, Golden Dragon grumbled quietly, but I should be able to moisten my skin here nonetheless on very hot summer days. Mo Yuan chuckled. It was so pleasant to be in harmony with his true form, and not having to suppress it.

Trotwood: Well, I am back to recapping. Cubic recaps are on hiatus (I’ll get back to those in the summer—if summer ever comes), and I swore I wouldn’t do anything else until then. However, this drama really grabbed me. Not for the reasons you would imagine. I am/was watching several other Japanese dramas while watching this: Aishi Girl, Final Cut, May I Blackmail You, Five, Unnatural, and Repeat. There was more discussion of Repeat than this show on my twitter feed, and I actually enjoyed Unnatural more consistently than this show. However, I rarely have a show that leads me to complete rage and then basically seduces me back to being its best friend again. This was that show.

There was quite a lot of buzz about this show when it came out because of the cast. I won’t go into the background of each, but they are top notch and have many devoted fans. Our lead, Kimura Takuya, has been in the business since the late 80s, he is a boyband member turned award-winning actor. And don’t get me …

kakashi: We get to know this uncle Jong-Yong for a bit. He's a real sleazebag!
JoAnne: He seems so sloppy and naturally broke, there's no way he can be husband of the other daughter-in-law. There must be three brothers, right?

Snap.

Menacingly, a fan closed right in front of her nose, sending a sharp gush of air into her face. Shao Wan’s feet skidded on the polished floor as she came to an immediate stop, her heart drumming rapidly in her chest.

The Third Prince stepped out from behind a red pillar. For someone whose face usually showed either boredom or quiet amusement, he looked very grim.

JoAnne:  If I squint at the trees against the sky, Trot, I can see the green haze!  The red buds are very fat along the highway, too. Has the snow melted where you are yet?
Trotwood: It was warm today! In the 60s, so the last of the snow piles have melted. However, there is warning of ice in a couple of days. I'm not going to look for real positive weather until May. That way I won't be disappointed. I feel as though I may be in a drama lull for awhile. Most of the shows that I am watching have ended, are about to end, or are getting subbed very slowly (my Japanese dramas), and I'm not excited about the replacements at least not yet. Hopefully, this will allow time for my recapping project to get into full swing.
SakiVI: It's too hot for me. I like winter. 
So do I. I hate being hot, but this has been a long, painful winter. And I really don't want to shovel again. I'll put up with scrapping ice again like I had to do this week, but I'm tired of shoveling and…

My eyes crack open a slit, then shut again.

The sun is beating down today like it’s hellbent on settling a grudge.

A slight breeze skims across my cheeks. When it stills, the coolness is replaced by hot air that wraps over me like a blanket. My body shifts and I feel every spot where my skin has stuck to my robe, the worst being my back and the underside of my legs.

No.

Just a few more minutes, Senior, she groaned, I’m too tired.
