http://bridgforddental.co.uk/components/life/capricorn-compatibility-with-another-capricorn.php Because Min-Yeong is now enlisting the help of her fellow operatives to woo Byeong-Hoon. Would you be a wingman for your friend if you happen to both like the same girl? Hee-Joong knew at the end it was Byeong-Hoon who helped Sang-Yong, and she probably also understood how painful and courageous it was.
I was particularly moved by the scene where during the final confession Sang-Yong flubs his lines and that Byeong-Hoon helps him out without Sang-Yong knowing that it was the words Byeong-Hoon wanted to tell Hee-Joong. When Byeong-Hoon looked away from the monitor when they kissed, that little action of his showed the rawest of emotions. You are commenting using your WordPress.
Seung-pyo arrives first and runs in, but sees nobody. Seung-pyo finds the roof empty too, and while his back is turned Mr. Crazy rushes him with a baseball bat. Byung-hoon can hear the sounds of the scuffle over the phone and drives faster, though thankfully Seung-pyo can hold his own. Thank you, gangster past.
Crazy laughs in his face and calls him stupid for going to such lengths for a woman in love with someone else, but Seung-pyo just wants to know where Min-young is. The fight heads indoors and Mr. He sees her shoved behind the grate… and turns his back on the perp—and his knife. Byung-hoon arrives at the theater, staggering from the ordeal of forcing himself to drive, and Moo-jin joins him.
Not soon enough, though, because Seung-pyo gets a knife to the side. Seung-pyo fights back and knocks Crazy aside, then collapses clutching his abdomen. When Byung-hoon and Moo-jin rush in, he gasps out where Min-young is hidden, and they find the opening to the crawlspace. The timer starts counting down—ten minutes till boom. Poor Seung-pyo, bleeding on the floor watching, while his heart gets trampled for good measure. Moo-jin manages to disable the bomb with a few minutes to spare, and Min-young rushes to check on Seung-pyo.
Soon the police arrive and Seung-pyo is loaded into the ambulance. The surgery is successful, and now they can relax.
When Byung-hoon returns to the theater after his trip to the police station, he finds Min-young asleep at the table, having waited up. Arang tells her how worried Byung-hoon was when she went missing, and encourages her to not give up on her feelings. They adorably clear out in a flash when Min-young drops by. Aw, and then his face falls a bit when she asks if Byung-hoon has been by, disappointed.
So Byung-hoon manages to say an apology, with a straight face and everything, but he does it quickly and with his face averted. And now Byung-hoon declares it time to head into the final stage of their mission. Min-young catches Byung-hoon outside the theater on his way in, and thanks him for his help. She tells him she heard his conversation with Yi-seol during her kidnapping, when Yi-seol had urged him to come clean with his feelings. On to the final step.
Byung-hoon sets the stage with beautiful scenery and watches grumpily from his van while Seung-pyo and Min-young take a walk. But thankfully, you found me first. After you arrived, every day was enjoyable. And not as someone else plans?
He gets up and says to the camera that maybe Byung-hoon needs to lose her in order to come to his senses… and then the camera screen blacks out and Min-young screams. Byung-hoon panics and runs out of the van to charge in…. Oh cute, they out-Cyranoed Cyrano. Byung-hoon finds them standing there perfectly fine, and Seung-pyo says that he was all set to go along with the plan if Min-young seemed at all partial to him.
He tells Byung-hoon to be honest with her directly, and not hide behind his mission. And if he really wishes for her happiness, he ought to consider what she wants. Then he makes his cool not-a-hero exit. She pesters him for something , some kind of romantic declaration that she can remember forever. So Byung-hoon leans in to whisper into her ear, and whatever he says makes her glow and throw her arms around him. Aww, and then the goons chime in with their two cents, by skulking close with their huge cloud of balloons, which they release behind the hugging couple.
Min-young prods him to keep it going, arguing that they do good work. She can be his assistant, he says, and then bans her from his office for the next month while he works. Pouting, Min-young heads out with the files to be trashed and pauses to read the bulletin board with all their mission plans on it. He makes her promise not to disappear again, and hands her theater tickets… and her pink bike helmet.
The show is, appropriately, Cyrano de Bergerac. Both Seung-pyo and Yi-seol arrive on opening day, as do Moo-jin and Hye-ri. The two goons have roles in the play, which is sweet given how much they enjoyed acting during the missions. He wonders where Min-young went…. And at Cyrano Agency, I made my universe, my romance. Too much whiplash, going from upbeat romance to crime thriller in one forty-five-minute chunk. What the finale does that Episode 15 faltered at is wrap up the thematic elements and resolve our character arcs in a neat and satisfying way without sacrificing tone.
But thank goodness everybody else has better plans, and they conspire against the mastermind. Overall, Dating Agency Cyrano was a really refreshing summer romance that always breezed by in a flash and was super easy to watch. It felt perfect for the moment and was just the thing to mitigate the stress of a packed season, drama- and life-wise.
If she made decisions without the need for men to make them first, that would also be good. I also like the set ups, especially towards the beginning. She also reverses the traditional kdrama cliche of a normal female lead. Thanks as always, JavaBeans, for the recaps: Poor Seung-pyo, bleeding on the floor watching, while his heart gets trampled for good measure. Hee-joong Lee Min Jung is a beautiful woman and has an issue with trust. Thanks again for the confirmation!
He can get dumped away into the Never Happened Nope file. Your email address will not be published. I definitely enjoyed the last half of episode I was kind of pissed off at the first half, though, so, I wasn't able to fully enjoy the last half. Maybe I'll re-watch the episode starting from the hospital scene. Or noticing that someone is stabbed, but not doing anything about it besides comforting a girl nor calling Just the outride stupidity in those scenes made me not want to watch the rest.
I'm glad I DID watch the rest, but it was so aggravating to watch the first part of the episode When Master was saying the words fed to him, did he actually change any of them from what Byung Hoon was saying? In the dramafever English translations, it made it seem like he was modifying them a little bit in parts, and then when Byung Hoon gets so into the emotion and says Gong Stone, and then Master pauses and repeats THAT SPEECH word-for-word, it made it obvious that Master knew exactly what he was doing in repeating that word-for-word.
I don't think Master changed the speech. I was confused with that too Also the Master guy was awesome. My favorite 2nd lead ever. He was not perfect I liked this drama feel: He made Master recite lines for the confession but lines after lines, he thought about his own feelings and so Master's confession was more like Byung Hoon's confession to his love for Min Young.
When he said "Gong Stone" at the last line, he was caught up by his own feelings and didn't realize it but Master did and decided to repeat Gong Stone because he know that Min Young will understand indirectly that Byung Hoon was giving instructions to Master. In a way, Master made Byung Hoon's confession. Master even said that he wasn't Byung Hoon's avatar lol. In the original play, it pretty much follows what actually happened between Byung-hoon, Do-il, and Yi-seol Cyrano helped his friend woo the woman he loved, but after realizing he loves her himself, he finally decides to confess; however, his friend dies suddenly, and he loses the chance to tell her.
It's not actually a romance with a happy ending like many movie adaptations have you believe; if anything it's a tragedy disguised as a comedy. But true to form, Byung-hoon intends to be Cyrano right to the end and decides to give up his love a second time. Master, however, is not having any of that. Rather than continue on with the charade, he graciously steps aside after hearing Byung-hoon's unintentional confession calling her Gong Stone shows he was speaking from his heart, not simply feeding lines to Seung-pyo. I'm not entirely sure if that was his intention all along, but either way, Master realizes he's lost and purposely repeats "Gong Stone" so she'll know who the real wooer is Cyrano.
Thus, Cyrano's tragic fate is changed, the theater is finally reopened, and everyone is ridiculously happy.
I understand, of course, that it's different for everyone but I don't consider Seung-pyo's actions to be outright stupidity, mainly because I would ALSO have paid more attention to confirming the person I love is safe and a-okay rather than be hyper-vigilant of all other possible dangers that could happen to us. It's an emotionally-driven response and completely irrational, but it's not stupid. It's a logical reaction to have given the situation after all and entirely human. And unless Seung-pyo's gangster background made him completely clinical, it really has no bearing on how he would have reacted in that situation.
SP's a pretty emotional guy from what we've been shown and that was a completely emotional response. It's pretty much in-character of him to do so. Even taking into account emotional caring about the well-being of someone else, from a fight-or-flight standpoint, there's nothing that would make me think anyone would go from fighting someone who was a threat to suddenly "Hey, I'm going to ignore you completely, and present my back to someone who I was just fighting with" just because I hear someone who I love say something and I thought she was in danger previously.
And for a gangster, or any fighter really, you HAVE to detach from emotions to survive. It's very, very dangerous to be doing things emotionally as it'll often cloud your judgment at key important moments. And with a gangster, doubly so, since you'll often be doing things which you might have emotional issues with threatening nice people, hurting other nice people, etc.
Basically, it's really, really, really unrealistic to believe someone could be that bad at surviving and yet supposedly be a bad ass, too.
Heck, it's really hard for me to believe that of a normal person, also. I have to agree that some parts were odd. The most odd to me was the one you mentioned, "Or noticing that someone is stabbed, but not doing anything about it besides comforting a girl nor calling But, overall I had a smile on my face from start to end I was the exact same way. Sure, saving Min-young was important, but there were TWO people there one of which was doing nothing but staying close to comfort her.
Instead of watching someone slowly bleed to death in front of them, you'd think Byung-hoon could've picked up a phone to call or the bomb squad or something, lol. What a satisfying ending to such a satisfying drama! I love the recaps. Thanks for recapping this series! I really enjoyed it, and it was a nice breezy watch with lots of cute in it.
The detour to terror town was a little annoying, but I went with it, because it did have some nice character points in it. I hadn't connected Byung Hoon's not driving at all with trauma from his best friend dying in a car accident, and him overcoming that I thought was nice. The whole Seung Pyo lying on the floor bleeding without anyone administering emergency care was silly, and I think that they could have had Arang there somehow for that role, or at least BH checking on him.
I get that Moo Jin was a little bit busy trying to immediately disarm a bomb, and that BH was trying to keep MY calm, but he totally could have spared a moment for SP, even if it was shown by SP leaning up against a wall or something when the bomb was diffused. I was sincerely scared after ep. CDA reminded me of how I felt watching Full House 2 second male lead noble idiocy, a choose your own tragedy variation, male lead who would not affirm his own feelings toward female lead, and satisfactory but not over the top ending.
Yep, it was a fun summer rom com of the lighthearted sort. Moo jin all the way - yo, mysterious man of the highest good manners and sincere but understated and hot passion! Well, Javabeans, you've summed up pretty much how I felt after the finale. The show was light, breezy, and thankfully short.
It was the first show in the Flower Boy series that I've watched and it was fun. I wish it had more depth than just skimming the surface of things but it's alright. I don't know if I missed it, but the show never dug into the Hawaiian Shirt guy's past, right? I mean, what exactly did the Agency guys do that made him such a psycho? How did Hye Ri know him before?
Was it like a sudden meeting and they discovered that both of them felt hurt by the Agency? Also, what about Master's sour feelings towards Byung-hoon? Didn't Master hold him responsible for his brother's death? That stuff didn't even get cleared up between them since Byung-hoon implied that it wasn't his fault. I feel a bit cheated by these loose ends since the show made such a big deal of them before. Yeah, a lot of unanswered questions there, but I guess Master had a change of heart about Byung-hoon due to two things: So in the end, Master ends up with a big case of noble idiocy if you consider it idiocy to hand over the girl you got stabbed for to the man she really loves.
Eh, it wasn't my favorite ending. The first half of this series was soooo strong it set my hopes too high. I really loved how the ending reverses the traditional kdrama cliche of "girl getting surprised by kiss and doesnt know what to do".. Cyrano, overall, was a top notch drama. That dramatic detour in episode 15 was kinda out there but I felt that it was needed to convey the reality of their profession and their clients' romances. Its not always idealistic, ending in a happily ever after.
As much as the agency is able to bring people together, life does go on, and circumstances kicks reality back in. What I love the most is how the female protagonist was written. She also reverses the traditional kdrama cliche of a normal female lead. Her character is solid and honest, which is good to see. Sooyoung did really well. By far, one if the most talented idol-actresses. She's a natural talent. I have to admit I felt a little teary when Master said "Gong Stone" haha. C was a cute show but it was rather boring to watch at times, sorry!
Also, I was screaming at my screen for someone to call emergency services for Master; damn it writers. In fact, I hated the whole kidnapping thingy and the Hawaiian shirt cray cray dude And even that wasn't a detour to Improvisation Town 'Cause We're Out of Ideas because there were clues all along the drama. So since the beginning, it was part of the plan.
I guess I can live with that and the good thing is that they made it up to me with The Cute. Overall it was a nice, breezy watch. Though not a powerful actress just yet. But Hee-joong is such a light character and it suits Min Jung. Park Shin Hye is actually under utilized here since she plays a minor role, a support role. She turned herself as a woman here with conviction.
Strong willed and all out. Good contrast with character roles that Shin Hye are choosing. Byeong-hoon Uhm Tae Woong an actor in every sense of the word. Smooth and confident unlike Sang yong. A typical man who wanders more than aim. At one pint in his life he met Hee-joong and lost her. It must be some of his facial expression or angles that resembles Chef. Sang-yong Daniel Choi jolly, simple minded, witty and very vulnerable.
And yet when he confessed his true feelings for Hee-joong, it was sincere. I was actually worried with his character because he was ill-tempered and easily angered. He sucks at words! Sound so cheesy right.. It was better than the script or what Byung-hoon delivered. Their clients are like stage actors, with lines to throw and backdrop to enhance an ambiance. All to help win the girl of a mans dream, so to speak. Nothing against set up dating or match making of some sort. Getting help is good too.
Just that, the way this movie presented it is ridiculous. He showed his own sincerity by telling how he truly feel and shutting down his connections with the agency in two of the most important scene in the movie.
Also, he did patiently waited and done his own part to win Hee-joong. But thank godness for Daniel Choi! He brought my attention back! He can make me cry and laugh the next. It is my first time to see Daniel Choi. Such a good beat he had there!
