JoAnne: I have no hope of other voices this week, readers...Saki is in faraway lands eating delicious things, and Trot is in fly-over country but also eating delicious things. Kakashi is home and always eats delicious things (I do?), but will probably only talk about Mozart in the Jungle, which is back, yay! - so my one hope is Panda, may she have watched many shows this week. And now I'm hungry.
Trotwood: (running from the airport bus) I'm here! I'm here! Not caught up but here.
Panda: I am here with my trio of jdoramas :))
You guys, I missed you! Group hug!
KOREA Radio Romance  This week things took a real turn - we get a lot more insight into Soo Ho's feelings, we maybe get a reveal that Giddy Doc is not as benign as he seems, and our radio show begins to find its footing with the audience as the tv show begins to find its footing with us. I look forward to seeing if Geu Rim responds positively or not to Soo Ho's kiss - it would certainly take her by surprise b…

An eye for an eye, makes the whole world blind—Whoever had thought of this proverb was no doubt lying in his grave somewhere, wondering why he had been so naive and foolish.

Bai Qian was raised in a household with four brothers, would she have lasted this long had she applied this kind of virtue? Her father had taught her to be a reasonable person, and her mother had taught her to stand up for herself. So, if someone was good to her, she’d be good to them. If someone wronged her, she’d get them back.

Xiao Yu had been given a gash of retribution on his right butt cheek an hour ago, which Bai Qian thought was fair repayment for his treatment of her. So why was she the one tending to him now as he moaned and groaned?

After Moyuan had lifted Xiao Yu’s spell and transformed her back to her human form, he had given her a stern lecture and the task of bandaging up the wound she had caused…

“It’s been several days, Ye Hua.”

“Yes, Qian Qian, I know.”

“Then do something, Ye Hua!”

“What will you have me do, Qian Qian? Break into the cave?”

“Yes!”, Bai Qian exclaimed, sounding close to tears, “yes, you break into the cave and check on your Da-ge! It is your duty as his younger brother.”

“Here you go, Miss,” The friendly shopkeeper handed Bai Qian the change of two silver coins, which she took and left with the book she had bought for A-li: an anthropology on magical creatures written from a mortal’s point of view. Once she was out of the shop, Bai Qian headed straight for the teahouse where Moyuan was waiting, flipping through the pages on the way.

When she arrived, two thirds of the play about the butterflies seemed to have finished. She spotted Moyuan’s figure at a table on the second floor and started to walk up the stairs to him.

“Hhhhmmmm…”

Three whole balls of rice were scarfed down so fast, they practically never existed. Bai Qian wiped her mouth clean with her sleeve, held her belly and smiled in contentment. She dropped down lazily onto a plump bed of grass.

After coming down from the hill, she and Moyuan had decided to stop at the edge of the valley for a rest. Now lying beneath a large sandalwood tree, Bai Qian’s limbs extended out—arms stretched above her head, toes pointed in a line, and heels digging into the dirt. Her body rejoiced.

JoAnne: It's Sunday night and I've been here, mostly alone, all week. Just me in my dark little cave of dramas, squeeing away like a little bat in the night.
kakashi: Are you missing the RED? Look how beautiful I am...
Trotwood: I'm here but barely.
SakiVI: I got sick again.  I barely breathed this past weekend.  Like literally at times.  FYI, everyone, I probably won't be around for the next couple of Rawrs because I'm off to faraway lands.  You are getting at least two Tientsin Mystic recaps while I'm away, though.

The Celestial forces crushed all..."

“He didn’t end the war. She did,” a voice whispered into his ear.
