Walk down Memory Lane: High Kick 3: Counterattack of the Short Legs – Episode 69
Today’s post continues our 4th birthday celebration with the return of the annual “Walk down Memory Lane” corner. As you can see from the cover picture, this year’s featured series is the third installment of the High Kick franchise. Personally, I adored this series because it was a combination of comedic hilarity and dramatic poignancy. For a daily–probably one of the few I’ve actually seen–this series ranks right up there in the top 5.
Without further ado, I present to you my humble little recap written back in January 5, 2012, of Episode 69 (Week 16, broadcast on January 3, 2012). Enjoy the “walk down memory lane,” Twinkles!
I’m trying something new with Ep. 69 and depending on how long it takes and how I like the final product, I may continue posting more of these. In any case, I like the idea of recapping these short episodes with lots of pictures and captions that explain the plot…my truncated version of watching the episode. LOL. So…I hope you enjoy~
Recap of Episode 69:
I love the continuing development of everyone’s relationships. However, in this episode, I especially appreciated Ji Seok’s resolve to live 2012 without any regrets–a complete contrast from his 2011 approach–by not being discouraged by Ha Sun’s repeated rejections. Despite her numerous no’s, Ji Seok boldly tells her that he will love her and remain by her side at all times. And in true comedic form, the writer has Ha Sun liven up the mood by correctly Ji Seok’s spelling. LOL.
The other point of this episode that I enjoyed was the reversal of Ahn Nae Sang’s role. Once a persecuted debtor, he is now the one persecuting the embezzler, determined to go after what is rightfully his. The irony of the situation is not lost on anyone, and the drama of the situation is then lightened up again by his insistence on at least recuperating some of his losses with the animals.
Overall, this was a solid episode that furthers the plot. 🙂
