Hi everyone! You guys are extremely kind with your thanks and praises. Perhaps once SKKS is over, I’ll start writing my own stories again. The academic life pretty much drains any creative juices I have in me. After reading so many students’ papers, I tend to not want to tax my brain too much. LOL
Anyhow, I had planned on coming home after work tonight to summarize episode 16, but I think it may be wiser for me to go to bed early tonight and summarize tomorrow morning after a good night’s rest…it typically takes about 3 hours to write each summary, and I can’t guarantee how long my brain will remain functional, especially since there are some tricky dialogue in episode 16. After lecturing for five hours straight on Ruth Benedict (culture and individualism) and entertaining those darling kids (4 years old and 2 years old) all morning, I think it’s fair to say that I am, or at least my body is, no longer a spring chicken. 😛 I feel so old! (sniffles)
However, for those of you who couldn’t understand the dialogue, I’ll leave you with some major highlights:
1. L keeps bugging K to tell him what she was about to say at the waterfall before she slipped and fell (inside his room up in the mountains, in their room at SKKS when M isn’t there, and then at the library before K kisses him). He insists that he only wants to know because he’s a scholar. (Sure, we believe you! LOL)
2. M recognizes Chosun as the fake HBS because of her distinctive perfume. He tries to warn K to put some distance between her and Chosun, but K brushes it off and says that she’s “Daemul,” which exasperates M.
3. At the mountain house, Soondol locks K and L in the room all alone so that K can convince L to return to SKK, unwittingly forcing a man and a woman to spend the night together. LOL…the look on L’s face, especially when Soondol was telling K that L’s been sick, dazing off into space because he’s been missing someone. LOL…L’s expression is absolutely priceless!
4. G invades their room while L and M are arguing over sleeping positions because he heard a noise and thinks there’s a nine-tailed fox out to get him. LOL
Hmmm…I’m probably missing some other great points, but oh well…I’ll write a full summary tomorrow morning (8 hours from now) to cover everything. Until then, I wish you all a great day/night!
Oh, someone made a comment about future summaries of others series…LOL…we’ll see how my sanity is after SKKS. G’night!
Addendum at 11:30 pm: I just dropped by yogurutu.blogspot.com and noticed that she recapped episodes 15 and 16! I think it’s safe to say that episode 16 has been nicely summarized already. 🙂 I’ll summarize ep. 17 and 18 next week, everyone! No need to duplicate something that’s already been done quite nicely…and with pictures, too! Check it out!
