Shopify T Shirts

Some of you may have already known, that I was laid off from my full time job back on 5/19. I am actively looking for new employment, hence my hiatus in my reviews. Our family bills are not going away. I didn’t want to start a Go Fund Me campaign asking for help. So, I came across a Facebook suggested post about selling t-shirts and I thought I’d give it a try. I have to come up with rent, car, and utilities by mid July. The only thing I could think of right  now is Kdrama quotes. So, I’m going to try it out.

I’ve researched [somewhat] what I can and cannot sell in terms of Kdrama merchandise, as far as copyright, so here is my first design. I’m working on a few more…..if there’s a drama that’s dear to your heart, leave a comment below so I can try to design a shirt for it.

Please help us out by purchasing a shirt, and forwarding this link. Every little bit helps.  If you have any other questions, you can contact me on my personal email: aquarianunicorn34@icloud.com, and I’ll answer as much as I can without divulging too much personal information.

The store is still in progress as far as themes, and everything, but your order will still be processed accordingly.

Thank you.

Man to Man: 6

This episode mostly focused on Do Ha’s relationships, especially with her dad and Seol Woo. I for one, have not fully connected to Do Ha’s character. Her character just isn’t relatable to me. Although she has notable quotes, her character hasn’t tugged my heartstrings yet. She hasn’t done anything heroic or suspicious to get me interested. But, regardless, this was her highlight episode.

I suppose it’s okay to take a little break from the action and suspense while the baddies figure out how to be – well, baddies. I’m a little disappointed that six episodes in, they’re still not showing might and brute force. They’re just having brooding moments and meetings. There’s not much for Seol Woo to do as a ghost agent, if there’s no group to have action scenes with. Then again, I can’t have action scenes all the time, can I?

I already know her genuine relationship that she shares with Un Gwang, so it’s nice to see her outside her comfort zone and watch her react to her dad being back in her life, and Seol Woo creeping up in her heart – at the same time. So far, Do Ha’s handling it okay. She had the courage to actually tell him how she feels, and she let Seol Woo in on her family history.

I’m still weary about Myung Suk. Although he seems to have the right mindset, he could still play on the wrong side of the court just to get some quick cash. That is what I’m worried about. I’d hate to see the day where Seol Woo has to choose between him and Do Ha. I do hope that Myung Suk’s character is written as a good guy who just makes bad choices. If so, the Seol Woo can fix or avoid those mistakes.

Seol Woo has entered uncharted territories. Although he doesn’t know it yet, he’s already smitten with Do Ha. He thinks this is part of his plan, well – he’s wrong. I’ll admit it, I’m curious as to how this will affect Seol Woo in the next episodes. Will he reveal his true feelings? What are those feelings? It can’t be love this soon in the series though.

Now that I know Soo Hyun didn’t kill Hwi Young, I’m only left with one person…. Shin Yul.  The question is how did he die, and who killed him? I can’t see Hwi Young pulling the trigger on his best friend. Young Min is a possibility, but if we look at the present timeline, he’s rival is Se Ju. So, it’s not reflective of their past. That leaves soo Hyun….the question is why?

I swear, those past snippets! I knew since the beginning that there’s more to the flashbacks we were given. Who would’ve thought that a scene that made us think that Soo Hyun did kill Hwi Young was a confession scene all along? Gosh, I’m really impressed with the writing on this show. I guess it’s safe to say that a mirror in this show is that both Hwi Young in the past and Se Ju in the present both professed their feelings towards their counterparts, albeit, in a different way. It is squeal inducing nonetheless. I’m pretty sure that, after Hwi Young’s confession, that was it for that couple. Their relationship ended before it started. Hence, the reincarnation of themselves. At least, in the present time, Jeon Seol and Se Ju finally moved a step forward in regard to their relationship, and we know there’s a future there. Se Ju wasn’t lying when he said that he’s doing a service for his country with that kiss. It’s about time these two affirmed their feelings for each other.

Today is definitely Jin Oh’s episode. If you haven’t felt bad for him since he appeared in this show, and you have not felt bad at all after watching this episode until the end, you are one heartless person. Since the beginning, I knew I was rooting for his character. I knew that he will not get the girl. It was worse when I found out that he’s a ghost and realized he will never get the girl. It was episode that did me in.

Even though this episode started in heartbreak for Jin Oh after witnessing Se Ju and Jeon Seol’s kiss. It was when Jeon Seol was introduced to him even he’s invisible to her. The fact that Jeon Seol is there, and he froze to say her name, that was heart wrenching. When she was finally able to see him, well I was crying puddles.. It’s a major plus that Se Ju acknowledges him as a friend. Seeing him with his two favorite people of all time with him in the same room. Oh how happy I was for him! Then – they leave me with a cliffhanger – showing how he died. Well, that was a real shocker. Whatever impact factor the writing, and directing team wanted me to feel, I felt. I was in shock, in awe of how it just ended like that.

It still didn’t answer any questions though – who killed him, and why. I guess that’s for the next episode.

Until then,

Man to Man: 5

I didn’t see any character development as far as their interactions with each other. Un Gwang has always been fond of Seol Woo since his rescue on episode 2/3. I will admit that I was touched at his recollection of CEO Ji when he was starting out as an actor. So, I wasn’t surprised that it didn’t take long for him to CEO Ji back into the family. Do Ha is still undecided towards Seol Woo [until she kissed him], and Seol Woo is still dedicated to his mission. The baddies are still baddies with no intention of turning new leaves. Our agents well, there’s really nothing to develop when you’re supposed to be in a covert mission, although I appreciate that they find time for romance on the side. So – there’s not much to explore.

I got to see some action that I wanted. I will ignore the few lapses of logic with the mini action sequence that was offered today. Am I seriously the only one who wanted this show to be a true action drama? This would be so good if it focused on the action, with a side of romance, and the comedy is in the romance. I can do without the promised bromance.

As far as the romance goes, I am not convinced that both characters have gained true feelings for each other.  Sure, Seol Woo started to notice her during his Russia mission, but I don’t think that he’s on the level of “true love” yet. He’s still an android when it comes to romance, doing everything by the book. because he’s still in the mindset that this is a side mission, to his original mission. Do Ha too, she spent many years being on Un Gwang’s side. She can’t simply just like the first person to show affection. What about all those years she spent with Un Gwang? I think this would work more if Seol Woo has a competition for Do Ha’s heart to begin with. If Un Gwang was written as a second lead and showers he same affection to Do Ha, I think this would bring out Seol Woo’s feelings – but not on the 4th episode. You know what would be funny, if Seol Woo’s lair has a bookshelf of books dedicated to Romance, or self-help books on how to get the girl.  Needless to say, I was unaffected by their kiss last episode, and this episode.

Okay, I like Park Hae Jin as an actor. I’ve only watched him in Cheese In The Trap before this show. I hate to say this, but I can’t connect with him when he’s trying to be funny. I know, I know, I’ve stereotyped him playing serious roles, and this could be a break off of that mold – but – it’s not working for me. Maybe that’s probably why I am not convinced that Seol Woo really had feelings for Do Ha when he first kissed her, and again when Do Ha kissed him.

This is why I can’t connect with the bromance part of this show. I know the script calls for a funny scene, but I don’t feel it when they portray it. Believe me, I’m all for bromance scenes since BOF days, but this show is not cutting it for me.  I think the show can still pull off the comedic side of things if Seol Woo’s character isn’t written in. If need me, Seol Woo’s comedic antics could surface as he’s trying to woo Do Ha and falters But for Seol Woo to emulate facial expressions that are meant to be funny – it’s not.

We still have two more wood carvings to find, and I ‘m sure more sub plots will come out of the woodwork. The story will progress a little bit further. At this point, we’ve established on who’s on the good and evil side of things. So, it’s natural for a tiny stepback to lay more groundwork for the next arc. Mission: Romance.

Man To Man: 4


I said last time that if Do Ha’s dad shows up again and says something vague, it means that Do Ha’s character is more than Seol Woo’s love interest. Well, he showed up in this episode, and asked if she still has the “gift” he gave her. Pretty good to have written a future mission for Seol Woo, and Do Ha will be his target, I would say. This will complicate things a tad bit for Seol Woo, and I can’t wait. As far as her dad’s character goes, I’m sure he’ll help in complicating things for everyone involved. Not a matter of if, but when.


It looks like Seol Woo will have time to fall in love because our baddies are busy playing double cross, It looks like they each have a role as a “team”, but each member has a different goal. Seung Jae’s goal is to get his father’s dirty money, and he is looking more like ghost money to Assemblyman Baek.  Assemblyman Baek seems to be a mastermind playing puppet, and we have an actual ghost agent who hasn’t done any of the dirty work yet. Meaning, they’re nowhere in this show, which is not good if we have a secret agent that lives for a mission.


I feel bad for Do Ha who’s confused at Seol Woo’s advances, then gets let down in a shocking way. That’s a big eye opener for a woman who’s been told somewhat of the truth. I feel for her though, a lot has happened to her since she met Seol Woo, dealing with Un Gwang’s accident, and her dad showing up all at the same time.


I know it’s Seol Woo’s tactic in order to accomplish his mission. He is still the same using logic and assessing every situation and reacts according to that. Seol Woo “wooing” Do Ha wasn’t part of his plan to begin with. In fact, I didn’t see that he tried to charm her at all. In the end, he must’ve been “What the heck, my mission is over anyway, so yeah let’s just tell her what she doesn’t want to hear, not thinking it’ll backfire. I think this is where he’ll reach a realization that he’s never experienced this before, and that’s where the “comedic” turn of events will ensue. I just think he went a little bit farther than what a car explosion. Maybe it’s just me, but I did see a pang of guilt when he was walking away compared to the woman he left behind in the first episode.


The show is stepping up on the action/suspense aspect, which I’m not going to get into detail. The action is there, but I want more. I think I’m going to keep saying this in every post. They spoiled me in episode 2, and I want to see more action scenes like that. They’ve been setting up the loveline between Seol Woo, and Do Ha. As far as the romance goes, I don’t see any chemistry suggesting that they’ve developed mutual feelings for each other outside the professional realm yet, I wouldn’t rule out the possibility that Seol Woo was a teeny tiny bit attracted to Do Ha in the last episode, but kept it at bay because he’s on a mission.
