2012 Appreciation Post

[I don’t know why some of the content disappeared before :\ Here’s the edited version.]

For various reasons, this year’s appreciation post is going to be longer compared to last year, simply because I watched quite a handful of dramas and I have a lot of things to be thankful for. I have to admit that 2012 isn’t the best year in my life as a student, but I’m grateful that I something that I can hold on to, just to escape the reality at times. Now that seems a little depressing O.O but student’s life is not normal without any sign of stress, right? Back to the dramas, I think I’ve watched more dramas this year and at one point, I even juggled eight currently airing dramas at that time. Crazy, but I managed to finish most of them.

2012

Beware that this is probably going to take forever…

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 10

Revenge isn’t that simple like it used to be when we were kids: if someone threw a rock at us, we picked another and threw back at that person. As we grow up, more steps are needed for someone to be able to give a satisfying payback. The bitterness of the process totally disappears with the sweet revenge, but would forgiveness be sweeter?

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 9

Here we are, getting the second time jump, thirteen years later. If two-year jump brought so many changes in the characters, how about these longer years, where they are apart from each other? Even if their appearance change, will their hearts stay intact? How about the guilt and hate: will these be washed from their hearts as they grow up?

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 8

Some of the things that I keep thinking throughout this episode: is Chairman Jin going to kill Sun-Woo? If not him, is it Jang-Il? How Sun-Woo is going to avoid the attempt to kill him? Will Ji-Won get involved in this matter? What about Soo-Mi and others? Luckily, these things don’t happen, but they are slowly getting involved in the secret, whether directly or indirectly.

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 7

Since The Equator Man was the only drama broadcasted on Wednesday despite the other two dramas’ decision to pull out of the slot due to the election, the ratings went up a bit (14.3 % if I’m not mistaken?). A good sign because it showed that people were checking out this drama and there’s possibility they will stick to it. I’m happy for it and let’s hope it will continue steadily until the end. A little rise is always welcomed.

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 6

No remorse at all. Is that what you really have to feel when the person whose life you’ve destroyed in a single blow appears in front of you? And you even muster up your courage to push that person out of your life?Just remember that life isn’t as simple as you think what it is. It may hold surprises for you; some you’ve never imagined before.

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 5

Unlike my prediction for the episode to be quite slow, it continues to unleash the new world encountered by the grown up characters in a steady pace. Get ready to be surprised as things sometimes turn out to be different from what we expected them to be. The characters are all grown up with more darkness instilled inside them. Who is to be blamed when someone changes? Himself or the people around him?

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 4

The young ones take their final bows and it’s the time for their adult counterparts to take over the stage. Time flies, almost unnoticed by some people, but quite slow for others. If someone could turn back the time, what would they do? Stay the same, or try to change what they’ve done? Although we can plan and do whatever it takes for our future, the future still holds many great surprises for us and at times, the regret is going to get us for whatever we have done in the past.

[recap] The Equator Man – Episode 3

Is this the fate’s game? Trampling over the people’s lives, throwing them into the deepest, blackest hole in their hearts. To me, the characters are not at total fault for their greed and betrayal. It’s the cruel fate that’s giving reasons for them to act almost inhumanely. What can they do when at one point, they can only choose to protect one side and eventually sacrifices the other side?
