Back and Ready to Roll with “Gu Family Book”
Over the past few months, I would randomly laugh out loud at the thought of how long I have abandoned my blog. This laughter was both of shame and disbelief in how much time had passed since I last posted. It was really a crazy laugh and it belonged to someone who was feeling very unsettled and anxious about making a life changing move and trying to adjust to a new country.
It has taken me longer than expected getting settled in South Korea but finally, I am as settled as I can be at this point. It’s not the perfectly ideal time for me to start recapping a drama, especially with circumstances very different from when I was recapping “Faith” and “Queen In Hyun’s Man,” but I really missed recapping and a Lee Seung Gi drama is hard to pass up. Also, thanks to Softy, I’m all set up electronically to live-cap “Gu Family Book.”
Yes, I will be doing live recaps for Lee Seung Gi’s new drama, “Gu Family Book.” It starts tomorrow, April 8, and it airs Mondays and Tuesdays. As they are live recaps, they will be different from what I did for “Queen In Hyun’s Man” and “Faith.” Like the way Softy does her live transcaps, I will recap as much as I can while I am watching live, and then continue to update after I download the video and rewatch. Another thing that will be different from my previous recaps will be that I won’t be spending nine hours on them. I have a strict schedule so I need to stop updating the recap after three hours and go to sleep. In effect, they won’t look as nice or as complete as my other drama recaps but I have come to peace with that and I hope you guys also understand. Bear with me as I navigate this new world of live recapping in South Korea.
So there is no confusion, I want to clarify that I am recapping this by myself. For some reason, I think there are readers out there who think Softy and I will be recapping “Gu Family Book” together but I am working on this alone. Although in spirit, Softy will be there to support me. She is really the most helpful person out there.
So yay! Recapping! Live! Gu Family Book! My baby Lee Seung Gi! Sung Joon! Whee!!!!!!
F.Y.I, I will definitely be recapping “Heirs” with Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye. Of course. Of course!
