Panda and Hedgehog Episode 11 Recap

  Okay, after slacking and procrastinating, the recap is finally here! Sorry to be so slow, but at least this time, it's complete. (I accidentally posted part of my draft earlier. To anyone who read it, I'm sorry.)

Arang, Meet Buffy—You Have a Lot More in Common than You May Realize


  For anyone who has watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it's pretty obvious that Arang and the Magistrate bears any number of similarities to that series, especially when it comes to characters. I'm not saying that they are the same show, or that Arang is derivative of Buffy, since both have their own distinct mythologies and flavor, but there are just too many similar characters to be ignored. For fun, I wanted to outline these characters. (Spoiler Alert.)

Panda and Hedgehog Episode 10 Recap

  So much awkward and cute in one episode! Gah! Things are really starting to get moving, and we have less angst than I anticipated. (Always a plus in my book.) But we do get enough to make things interesting.

Panda and Hedgehog Episode 8 Recap

  Omo, omo, omo! (This is suddenly becoming my favorite Korean word. Haha.) The bromance is in full swing, and the guys are bonding left and right. This episode gives us decent back story and more pieces to the puzzle, but is light on the side characters. Also, Panda proves how infuriating she can be. 
  But the guys! They're just so sweet together! I just love them both. Can't they come live with me? And make me macarons all the time? I wouldn't mind a cake every now and then, either.

Panda and Hedgehog Episode 7 Recap

  Panda is finally forced to face the rivalry for her affections. It's about time someone clued her in! But then she comes up with the most unusual challenge for the guys to prove their love for her, and I think it's going to make things veeery interesting. Bromance is in the air, even if romance isn't quite there yet.

Haeundae Lovers Episode 10 Recap

  This episode really doesn't do much to move the plot forward. But you know what? I don't mind that at all, because what we do get is a healthy dose of our OTP realizing their OTP-ness. I think that rainbows and unicorns were liberally sprinkled throughout, but I just didn't notice them with all the adorableness here. Tae Sung, you're winning over my heart.
  Warning: Because of all the sweet moments, this is an especially long recap. I just can't help myself in wanting to capture everything.

Haeundae Lovers Episode 9 Recap

  This episode has some more great moments. Joo Hee's character begins to show more, and we get some glimpses into her possible motives. Joon Hyuk may not be so nice as he's seemed up until now. And Tae Sung cries some more. Plus, the OTP finally makes some actual (and fake) progress.

  Our OTP finds a reason to start dating, mysteries arise about Won Il (though nothing too big), and Eun Bi starts to show her nasty side. Also, Seung Ji tries on some pink headbands.

Panda and Hedgehog Episode 5 Recap

  This episode felt a bit slow to me. But mostly, I think it's because it's a lot of build up. Things are starting to happen, and new plot developments are. . . developing.
