The “good news” is I finished browsing through Jealousy Incarnate and Madame Antoine through recaps- Noonas over forks and Dramabeans! Did it so quickly i seem like i am staring at the phone all day. I wouldnt have had so much patience to watch these two dramas if i watch it one episode at a time. Had a fun time just zooming through them. Since I browsed through them, the details may not be correct.
As I love psychology a lot, this drama is quite relevant to me but somehow it just doesnt attract me as it is too slow pace for me and the whole drama just circles around an experiment (which involves 3 guys pursuing a girl) that Choi Soo Hyun (Sung Joon), a psychologist, conducts to prove that there is no such thing as everlasting or true love. There are many cases which makes it feel like a boring report by case since the main storyline is not strong enough for me.
However, what piqued my curiosity to start reading the recaps is when I heard of Soo Hyun’s behaviour of feeling pain when a droplet drops on his hand, likely due to past trauma despite being a psychologist himself.
Next~ to Jealousy Incarnate! Randomly went to read the recaps since I have been curious about this drama for some time. It has 24 episodes and the storyline is too dry for me haha so I would have dropped it after watching a few episodes.
I thought that it is just about some news anchors, reporters, office politics type of drama but after reading the recaps, I realised that there is a sub-plot of a man fighting breast cancer which is totally unexpected… What really made me continue reading the recaps is how interesting the sub-plot is as Hwa Shin (Jo Jung Suk) furtively goes for his treatment in a clinic filled with women, wears post-operation bra after operation, uses Na Ri’s (Gong Hyo Jin) name to register for radiation appointments etc. It just feels awkward haha even though I didnt watch most of it but just read the recaps.

Thanks to recap writers! I would never have such patience to write recaps for each episode dutifully. Sometimes I wonder if reading recaps will cause people to miss out what is contained in the drama itself or they may choose the faster way out by reading instead of watching but for now I think that it helps me experience dramas that I wouldnt have been able to without recaps.
