Like I promised, I will be watching Descendants of the Sun (DOTS) and Signal this month!

~~~~~

[[[first episode spoilers!!!]]]

~~~~~

Here we go :D

Special Forces Alpha Team.

I know that this is meant to be intense since in less than 10 minutes into the episode Shijin gets into a knife battle, gets stabbed, saves 2 hostages, and resolves a situation with North Korea, but the fact that they use code names like "harry potter" and "big boss" makes me giggle.

I'm not big on long fight scenes so we'll see how much more of this there is in the drama.

Suddenly we're out of the dramatic situation and into the ridiculous. I LOVE the bromance in this and how goofy they are.

They use toy guns to stop a thief and somehow end up with stuffed animals as thanks.

The thief ended up stealing one of their phones while they were checking his wounds so they went to the hospital to retrieve it.

Moyeon is impressed by the first aid job - which of course Shinjin did... ***destiny***

I appreciate how corny the love-at-first-sight part of this episode was. Shinjin is all in lalaland and his friend is not having it. They still haven't gotten the stolen phone back.

Meanwhile, Moyeon is convinced that Shinjin is a thug trying to beat up the thief so she's being really nasty to him (and he loves it)

When he brings the runaway thief/patient back to the hospital after saving him from the gang trying to beat him up, Moyeon STILL doesn't believe that Shinjin isn't the thug.

She checks the CCTV to "prove" he beat up the kid himself but instead ends up fangirling over Shinjin while he saves the day. It was SO CUTE.

Afterwards she helps mend his wounds and that's when it starts to get really cheesy.

But somehow Joongki's acting makes it okay. He handles cheese well ;D

He needs to come back for a check up in a few days and he starts to get all mushy about wanting to come back every day and wanting her to be his doctor.

Smooth Shinjin, real smooth.

I bet a thousand bucks that she actually schedules him with a male doctor just to mess with him haha!

Now that he's starting to look like a really lame playboy, he redeems himself.

He's at the hospital for his checkup but sees an emergency and totally helps out. You go Shinjin.
Later they have a totally out-of-character phone convo...

Like, this is episode ONE! How are you already asking her out on a date?!

But then, Mr. Important has to rush off to war again and reschedule the date.

He gets rushed away in a helicopter and its safe to say that Moyeon is blow away. (I would be too Moyeon, I would be too.)

So all in all, I liked it!

It was cheesy but funny, and I like the dynamic Shinjin and Moyeon have.

I am hoping that they are getting the brunt of the romance line out of the way for more serious topics and can't wait to see Onew in the next few episodes!

Who else is watching!?

After reading @stephanieduong's comment on your Signal & DOTS cards I decided to give it a go but I didn't expect to click on the next episode so fast! LOL. This was the result of working from home while my husband was away for a day.
@IMNII you might want to ask @cindystran about her experience with this. I heard a rumor that she might have watched 10 episodes in one weekend? ;D
@StephanieDuong NO. this can't be happening. I was hoping you won't say that. I had hope for ep 12...😭😭😭
@cindystran It gets even sadder... just wait. 😭
@IMNII Lol. I attempted a k-drama marathon once with my sisters but I ended up sleeping couldn't handle it. BTW, if you have any drama recommendation (action or mystery genre), please send them my way! :) @StephanieDuong OMG. just caught up with episode 11. SUPER SAD!!!!
