Not a recap, bits of spoiler ahead. Fun talk, don’t take it seriously 🙂
Last night there were three dramas premiered, one of the lot was Take Care of Us, Captain.
Have you ever fallen for a captain? I mean, when you get on the plane and bam! That navy suit with a cap, call for your attention, right? I had my first time falling last night. Oh man, Ji Jin Hee (as Kim Yoon Sung) was so gorgeous in his uniform (and his hair color).
Koo Hye Sun (as Han Da Jin) a newly graduate, 1st on her class.
And the flight begins!
And see who’s boarding the plane (cameo) Oh, familiar face, the handsome, the salaryman! Don’t you think the flight attendants in a movie or a drama are especially good (to be true)? They smile and greet the passengers, where the handsome plays his charm on one of the crews.
Though I was a bit uneasy to see the king in Dong Yi flying an airplane but he portrayed his role well and I would say solid.
Then, turbulent time, I hateeeee turbulent!
If , in an emergency landing, the crews act like in this drama , that would scare the hell out of me. They should appear calm and confident right? Kdrama?
Accident happens, one woman dies, on board. It turns out to be the mother of Da Jin, on her graduation day, where Yoon Sung is the co-pilot on board. Yep, Kdrama, alright.
Both parties weep in sorrow with different reasons. Yoon Sung shows up at the funeral, though standing further away by himself. So both don’t get to see each other.
Yoon Sung leaves the country. Then zzzzzz……years pass, Sydney, Australia.
At night, in the amusement park, she gets one crystal ball of fortune, a message inside reads Climb your life. Da Jin (and me) scratches head. Then she trips and falls, the balls slips from her hand and rolls away on the ground. A helpful hand picks up, and what do you know, it’s the prince charming, I mean, Yoon Sung. He stands in the dark handing back the ball to her and walks away. He sees her face but not vice versa.
She thanks him, though he doesn’t even bother to look back. It seems the accident has turned Yoon Sung into a cold picky prince. Fireworks lighten the night sky. Da Jin turns and sees the ad to climb your life (aka the bridge).
Aww…my fav place, the Opera House, the harbor!
So she sets her mission to climb ( I know, what’s that has to do with it?) the bridge (tourist attraction, me guess). While my hero is taking pictures in the area and hears her shriek (sorry, shout) to climbbbb yourrrr lifffffeeee!
He lifts his camera and zooms in, holy cow, it’s her, he recognizes her with the ball that night. He snaps many pictures of her.
Then, duty calls. They meet again. The captain and the co.
She tries to flash a smile after another in the cabin, but he’s on strictly business mode. Again, a passenger’s condition calls for an emergency landing, but there’s problem with the air traffic control, they ask them to remain in the air. The airport is trying its best to clear the runway, but time is needed on both sides.
Then a guy in the control tower spills coffee (yep, coffee *roll eyes*) over some communication device between the plane and the tower. So the second male lead, Lee Chun Hee (as Kang Dong Soo) has to run up to the deck and uses an emergency torch-light, red for turn around , not to land the plane. So our captain and co take the plane from descending angle to nose up (I swear if I were on that plane…*shudders*). Then when the runway is clear, he signals them with the green light, for clear landing.
On the ground, Da Jin is pissed with the air traffic guy, Dong Soo. She grabs his collar and creates a scene in the airport.
Needless to say, the captain and the co get scolded by the boss which leads to the couple going against each other in terms of, is she capable for the job?
Sorry, I couldn’t help wishing for a different actress. Her laugh and acting was unnatural (but at least I lasted an episode compared to the Musical). And the ENGLISH speaking in this drama, gahhhhhhh *pulling hair*
This drama somehow reminded me of Air City, where each episode a problem arises for our leads to solve. If you are interested in
JJH, I mean, the flying zone, you might find the drama enjoyable. I feel sad for JJH tho, because he didn’t get to pick his co-star to my liking. But I would say this drama should be able to stay afloat in this time slot against the Wild, Moon/Sun 🙂
