Recap | Make It Right | s02e08

Okay, it’s late and I’ve got work tomorrow but we are still doing this. Let’s recap. (Spoilers, obv.) But, I think by this point everyone else has watched all the episodes except me. Lol.

We start this episode with a shirtless Tee coming out of shower and any scene with shirtless Tee is a good scene. Then, quite randomly, his mother’s hot, new, and young boyfriend (who may or may not have hit on Tee and whose name I forgot) comes over to apologize and says that he has stopped his playboy ways and is committed to his mother as he loves her very much.

As I was watching this scene, I was wondering why that guy would come all the way and explain all of this to Tee. I mean it doesn’t relate to the plot at all. Like, we do care about Tee’s mother but this scene made no sense. But, when the guy actually started to explain and said that loving two people at the same time can be tough and choosing one takes time, I was like – ahh, I get it. You are trying to explain Fuse’s indecision with this parallel story-telling. Subtle. But also, f you. Think about the other person at the end of your stupid indecision that is hurting so much. Ugh.

Anyway, from subtle to extremely overt, MIR talked about orgies this episode. Yes. It went there. I mean, am I even allowed to feign surprise at this point? P’Tern, the male version of Jean, is lounging near a pool when he strikes up a conversation with a semi-naked guy next to him and invites him to their pre-arranged “group activities” and slaps his butt while he’s leaving. I mean … I have no words. P’Tern was so adamant about getting back with Book but unable to hide his true evil self, he is still going around participating in “group activities.” I guess, it suits his character very well, being a villain and acting all douchey. Poor Book.

Talking about poor Book, he’s still shaken up from that video leak. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to go through such a thing. At least, Frame continues to be there for him and keeps bringing him food. He looks quite down as well and seems affected by the whole ordeal as well as Book refuses to let him comfort him. However, it also looks like things are improving. Even though Book is not ready to open the door (to his heart – MIR is really big on symbolism), he appreciates all that Frame has done for him. So, he passes on a small note that says ‘thank you’ through the gap under the closed door. Frame looks very pleased and so does Book. ❤

On the other side of town, the spawn of Satan – Jean and her friend Ploy are out having lunch when P’Ti, the supposed cousin from Hong Kong, arrives. It’s clear that P’Ti is not P’Ti (confirmed by Ess later in the episode) and he’s secretly dating Jean. But, there’s also a lot of eye-f**king going on between Ploy and P’Ti, which means that he’s a total playboy and something will happen between Ploy and this guy later.

In the next scene, the boys all claim that they are stressed and decide to go to karaoke, as one does when one’s stressed. This results in the most awkward scene ever with Tee in the middle and Fuse and Cid sitting next to him in each side while ‘Mo is singing. Thankfully (or un-thankfully?), one of the boys brings some news about spotting the boy that’s been hanging out with Jean. This prompts everyone (well, almost everyone) to go and investigate. The friend also explains that P’Ti is in fact France, a playboy and they see that he’s not with Jean but with someone else (no points for guessing).

This news devastates our Fuse, who remembers the ‘Jean ❤ France’ in Jean’s wall. So, he does what any heartbroken person does – gets drunk. I would say he deserves the pain but I’m a little bit sad because now, it will be upon Tee to take care of this drunken child. And as usual, he takes him home, holds him while he pukes, and wipes his dirty body. Clearly, he’s still in love. Let me say this again – Fuse doesn’t deserve Tee.

Another casualty in this whole ordeal is Cid. When Tee asked him if he was okay going home alone (as Tee had to take this man child home with him), Cid bit the bullet and said he’s okay with it even though clearly, he wasn’t. On top of that, when he calls Tee later and when Tee officially shuts him down by saying nothing will happen between them, not to wait for him, he’s not ready for anyone, etc., I was literally crying. 😦 You deserve something better as well Cid.

While all of this conversation was happening, Fuse was eavesdropping in the background and when he subtly inquires about it, Tee confirms that he’s not dating Cid and doesn’t like him that way. This makes Fuse very happy (obv.) and he starts to mumble things about him and Jean when Tee cuts him off and says that there’s no need to say anything and he’s fine with them being just friends and then, leaves to go home.

Then, outside the room door, for some reason, Tee is all smiles. Why is he happy though? Did I miss something? Is he happy to be just friends? Is he happy because he senses Jean and Fuse are dunzo? Is he happy that he confessed his true feelings to Fuse (again)? Is he happy that he’s finally over Fuse? I don’t know. I’m confused.

Anyway, the next day in school, instead of sending the video of France and Ploy to Fuse, Ess “accidentally” sends it to Jean, who is understandably livid. I wouldn’t be surprised if she went on a killing spree. We will see.

mir7.jpg

Yes, I’m still alive and well. Lol. Instead of giving a lot of excuses, let’s just recap, shall we? (Spoilers, obv.)

The leaked sex-tape continues to wreak havoc in MIR land. Now, even Book’s parents are involved! Along with a policeman uncle, Book’s parents have come to his condo to talk about the leak and boy, they are not happy. While it’s natural to feel angry in this type of situation, I felt that they were unnecessarily harsh on Book. Also, instead of being concerned about their son and his mental health, they were more concerned about what others will think of them now. The only helpful person out there was the police uncle, who said that they will be trying their best to identify the perp who leaked the video.

After squabbling for a while, Book’s parents give him a stern warning and leave. As he is about to return to his room, Book finds P’Tern (the guy who shot the sex video) waiting there for him. It turns out he’s really apologetic and wants to get back with Book (???). In the beginning, Book isn’t having any of it but then we see him slowly relenting to P’Tern’s pressure (No!). After telling him that he will call later, P’Tern leaves.

To make the event more dramatic, Frame drops by with some food. Frame and P’Tern pass each other but they don’t know each other (yet) so nothing happens. Unable to face Frame, Book closes the door in Frame’s face. I think in Book’s life, Frame is the only person who is concerned about his well being. He even tells him that he wants to be there for him but Book is like a sulky teenager who just wants to be left alone, thank you very much. But thankfully, Frame isn’t deterred and promises to come everyday to check on him (aww!).

Then, we move on to Tee and Fuse. In their college, the hot (and only) teacher wants to play a little game. It involves two boys being tied together while they go about researching animals. It’s not as sexual as it sounds but looks fun nonetheless. My only question is, why didn’t my school do activities like this? Anyway, Tee and Fuse get tied together (obviously). And, it’s just an excuse for them to talk and bond (again). However, as usual, as they are about to get closer, Jean comes and ruins everything. Ugh.

Jean and Fuse then go on a date and later, Jean lures (lures! lol) Fuse to her house and tries to seduce him! Oh my god. MIR, you never fail to amuse me. Fuse is like a deer caught in a headlight, unable to do anything while the predator (lol) moves in for the kill. But, as he sees ‘Gyne ❤ Fra ce’ (the name of that guy that Jean kept telling was her cousin from some other country, I believe) in Jean’s wall, he snaps out of it and makes a quick exit, leaving Jean high and dry.

Next episode: We find out what’s going on with the “cousin” from HK.

mir6.jpg

Yes, I’m back (again, lol). It took several months but I think I can finally finish MIR2 recaps. Let’s get started. (Spoilers, obv.)

It seems MIR’s episode 6 is all about torturing its characters.

a. Cid

In this episode, Cid finally proposes to Tee officially by offering a bouquet of flowers only to get turned down. While Tee says it’s because that he’s not ready and they are still in school, we all know it’s actually because he is still in love with Fuse. Later, Cid seems to have gained some traction (as he was chosen to escort Tee back to his house) but tbh, I don’t think TeexCid will happen, like – ever.

b. Tee

At this point, I would be surprised if MIR didn’t torture Tee emotionally in some way. He moves out of Fuse’s house but we can clearly see through his longing looks that he’s still hurt and wants to be with Fuse. He obviously also wants Fuse to say something and disclose his feelings towards him but gives a disappointed look and leaves with Cid when Fuse does nothing. Poor Tee doesn’t get what he wants either.

c. Fuse

The only good thing about this episode is that we get to see Fuse getting hurt as well. First, he cries when he observes the bouquet incident between Cid and Tee. And later, he acts jealous and irritated when he finds out that Cid is the one driving Tee back home. But, as usual, he doesn’t do anything about this because he’s a stupid fuccboi. 

d. Book

And obviously, MIR had to spoil one good thing that was left in the show – Book and Frame. It was their 2 month anniversary (has it only been 2 months? It feels like 2 years no? 😛 ) and everything was going great. Frame had prepared a surprise dinner and even given him a couple ring but it all came crashing down when Book’s sex tape leaked. Book is of course devastated but he also ends up pushing Frame away by saying that he wants to be alone. I’m sure that he just wants to protect Frame and doesn’t want him to deal with all the drama but still it’s hard to watch them go through this.

e. Frame

The success story of MIR – Frame – also had to endure some hardships this episode. After going through all that trouble, he had to leave Book as Book wanted to be alone after the video leak. He definitely wants to be a supportive boyfriend but Book keeps pushing him away. The episode ends as Frame leaves the room but I’m sure that he’ll find a way to come back.

[I think there’s a love triangle going on between Lukmo, Lukmo’s old girlfriend and Yok. But, as always, we won’t get into that.]

Verdict: This episode barely manages to remain on the hot side. However, it is still filled with more sad moments than the happy one. And, the B plots continue to remain terrible. Even if MIR pairs off Tee and Fuse in the end, I feel like the damage has already been done and I won’t be able to enjoy their reunion that much. And about the sex tape – I do applaud MIR for having the courage to explore an important topic but I don’t think it was executed well.

Next episode: Tee and Fuse get tied up.

Side note: *Happy fuckin’ birthday to me. Sad reacts only*

I have many excuses. Since I am an adult now, I have many responsibilities. It’s not that those responsibilities kept me from writing these recaps but more like, the effort required to think about those responsibilities and wallow in self-pity kept me from doing anything. I am sorry. I will try to do better. Anyway, let’s recap. (Spoilers, obv.)

Do I even remember where we left off? Hmm, let’s see.

Oh, yes. Book ran off thinking that his video~ had leaked and Frame also ran after him. Thankfully, it’s not one of his and both boys breathe a sigh of relief (along with me). Frame promises that whatever happens, he will be there for Book. Later in their condo, they continue their cuteness where Frame admits to Book that he has made him a better person. Then, Book channels his inner Ed Sheeran and asks – 🎵 When your legs don’t work like they used to before. And I can’t sweep you off of your feet. Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love. Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks 🎵. To which Frame obviously replies – 🎵 And darling I will be loving you ’til we’re 70. And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23 🎵.

However, all this is making me a little bit uncomfortable. Specially, how they keep on mentioning the video stuff and how it affects the people involved. Foreshadowing?

Side note: In this season, we haven’t seen any other kids in the place they call college. What happened? Were they not allowed to shoot during school time? Budget issues?

Anyway, with Fuse and Tee, Fuse is still trying to slide into Tee’s DM in school but it looks like Tee’s over it and ignores him. Fuse then asks if he wants to go to the tutoring school with him and complains that Tee doesn’t have time for him anymore. Okay, hold up. Are you fracking kidding me? Are you blind? You are the reason why this is happening. You are the reason that he is sad and you still have the balls to say that. Smh.

Thankfully, Tee leaves Fuse (for now) behind to go to the tutoring centre with Cid. Seriously, they look so cute together. Even though Tee keeps demurring, this needs to happen. I was also pleasantly surprised by another meet cute that happened between Tee and a hot guy when they are returning home. A second hot guy for Tee? Yes, please. However, my happiness doesn’t last long when it turns out that he was there with another guy and also, he is his mother’s boyfriend (!!!!!). :O

So, Tee’s mother has been dating that guy (Pob) and comes to Tee’s condo with him to get his approval. Even though Tee knows about Pob and his true nature, Tee (the ever-generous, possessor of infinite heart, our lord and savoir) says yes. When his mother goes out of the room, Pob emotionally blackmails Tee to not say anything to his mother about his dalliances with other guys. Tee tries to warn his mother later but can’t do it seeing how happy his mother is (at least at that moment) with Pob.

Unfortunately, this leads to his breakdown in the rain and he goes to the only person he knows and feels comfortable with – Fuse. It’s so sad to see that Tee feels that he has no one to turn to except Fuse, who doesn’t even love him.

This show can’t let Tee be happy. 😦

morn.PNG
Can you tell that this pic is edited? Didn’t think so.

But, Tee gets to spend some quality time with Fuse and we see what could have been if these two were together – their innuendo filled conversation, shirtless (but sexless) sleepover, and the flirty breakfast time. Alas, this happiness is cut short when Fuse mentions that he has to go to the school with Jean. To which Tee, the epitome of grace and sadness, says that he understands and this is enough for him.

First of all, Tee – you deserve so much more than that stupid Fuse. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again – he doesn’t appreciate you and you need someone who knows your worth. However, I can also understand where Tee is coming from. We can’t help who we fall in love with. So, with heavy heart, I will just say this – I will be happy if Tee’s happy. Sigh.

[As usual, I will be skipping Rodtang and Mo’s storyline. If you have to know, Rodtang is still acting obnoxious and running away from his responsibilities. Nine is still covering for Rodtang. Lamom still has the prettiest eyelashes. And, Mo and the gang are still the weirdest. Seriously, I think I saw Mo bringing an adult diaper as a gift to Yok’s mother. Whaa?]

Comment: The only ‘Hot’ episode till date.

I was about to give -∞ for making my Tee cry. However, I felt like I’ve been overly harsh on this show and there were some genuinely good moments that I enjoyed. So, I changed my mind. I don’t know why I’m explaining myself. Okay, bye.

Next episode: Cid, it’s time to show your magic.

mir4.jpg

I think, at this point, I’m just hate-watching this show. Haha. Let’s recap. (Spoilers, obv.)

We are back in Fuse’s house, where it seems like Tee is still living there (but in separate bed 😉 ). It’s really sad to see Tee so resigned and melancholic but of course, fuccboi Fuse doesn’t care about it at all and just wants to know who Tee was talking to in the tutoring class. Ugh. And when Tee tells him he might move back to the condo, this attention seeker just goes ape shit and emotionally blackmails Tee into staying with him for a week.

We also get to finally see why Book was worried about Frame filming them having sex. Apparently, his previous boyfriend Tern used to always do that and Book used to let him do it even though he felt bad about it and now, he regularly gets nightmares. He explains all of this to Book, who on the surface seems okay and says all the right things like – I will always be there for you, it’s going to be okay, forget about it, etc. but inside, he seems to be definitely affected by this revelation. And, right after saying that he will always be at Book’s side, Frame leaves the bed to think about it all and starts messaging Fuse (and some another person named Ti (?)).

The next day, the boys gang (Yok, Mo, Frame, and Fuse) meet in the mall to have lunch and do whatever the hell teenage boys do. While doing that, Frame spots Tee and Cid, who are also out and about having some lunch. It’s finally so great to see Fuse being on the other side, watching his “lover” get all the attention.

There Cid is trying his level best to woo Tee. He cheekily asks if Tee has a lover, bats his eyelid, tries the famous Tee-eyebrow-game, and even tells him his plan to make a new lover (and gives him hints on who that might be). After that, they both go to a rooftop and start talking about life and stuff. It’s very romantic.

Tee also tells him that he lives in a condo because he doesn’t want to go back to his house, where his family is having some problems. Awww. And then, Cid basically lays his heart out for Tee saying that he gets him. Tee is the silent sufferer, one who doesn’t want to worry others with his problem. So, Cid offers his services. He says that he might not be able to solve all of Tee’s problem but will definitely be there to listen. Damn! This guy did it in 2 episodes flat what that fuccboi couldn’t do in 2 whole seasons – understood Tee for who he really is. But alas, MIR doesn’t like to see Tee happy for very long. So, when Cid leans in to give him a kiss, Tee moves back and asks to go home. I guess he needs more time.

On the other side, the boys gang are in a fancy hotel as Mo wants to take a poop. There they see Jean with that boy, who pretended to be her cousin, going inside the elevator together (gasps! clutches pearls!).

After seeing that, Fuse is obviously quite bummed and says that he doesn’t want to go back to his home. Frame, who’s also sad due to events mentioned before, volunteers to stay back with him and drink the night away. They then rent a room at the same hotel and start to drink. They get pissed drunk and nearly end up kissing but at the last moment, Fuse pulls back (wise move there mister) and they both go to sleep.

You know what, I think I finally get what MIR is trying to do. I think it’s going for the ‘real’ vibes like not the sweet candy romance but real, messy love story in real life, where people do stupid things when they get drunk and where it’s not always a happy ending. While I appreciate and respect that decision, for the love of god, PLEASE NO FRAME AND FUSE, PLEASE DO NOT CROSS THAT LINE!

Also, is it so easy to rent a room for teenagers when they are in school uniform? What about the alcohol? Where did they get the money to rent the room? And, why is the alcohol not blurred in this episode? Ugh. I am just not happy with this scene.

Anyway, in the morning, Tee wakes up to an empty bed. This boy is so concerned for Fuse’s well-being that even after all the shiz he’s put him through, he still calls around to see where Fuse might be at. Similarly, Book also seems sad that Frame isn’t there with him to go to school and has a really sad conversation with his mother over the phone.

The episode ends with the boys gang, including Book and Frame, in the school when Wit (I think) shares the info that a sex tape of a high school student has been leaked. Book obv. rushes out to see if it’s his video and Frame follows him. Oh boy, this is going to be a doozy.

Side Plots: I have no idea what’s happening with the plots involving Rodtang and Yok and Mo. With Rodtang, he’s trying to do everything but failing at all of them (I guess that’s the lesson?) And with Yok and Mo, Mo is still a prop for Yok to get back at  his mother.

Next episode: Finally, Tee seems receptive to Cid’s advances. I am actually excited about watching a new MIR episode this season! 😀

Let’s recap. (Spoilers, obv.)

The boys are having a late night swim in the condo (probably) and Fuse is still mulling over who to choose – Jean or Tee. Are you frackin’ kidding me? The choice is crystal clear. It’s Tee, it’s always Tee.

We then shift to Frame and Book. Frame is sneezing a lot and Book scolds him for swimming this late with his friends. Frame asks Book to pass some cold medicine from his bag but it turns out to be a Viagra of some sort (of course). This makes Frame horny and he literally starts jumping on Book and starts to film the escapade. At this point, Book has had enough of it and says that he doesn’t want to do it again, Frame makes inquiries as to why is that. Book just ignores it and Frame leaves it as well and they have normal happy sex. While this is an interesting territory and a new development, this scene was very choppy. And, I have no idea how MIR will handle a sex video story line.

Later, we see a very happy Book cooking for Frame while day dreaming and feeling nostalgic. Frame being Frame scares him out of the blue and Book ends up cutting his finger. Frame then proceeds to carry out the first-aid, explains that he loves him and wants to care for him and starts to cook for him.

Back in Fuse’s house, he’s trying to reach Tee but Tee’s phone is turned off. (He doesn’t know about the sad melancholic montage that Tee had last episode.) Then, when Tee returns, Fuse apologizes and says that he will choose Jean instead of him.

OMG! ARE YOU F’ KIDDING ME? AFTER ALL OF THIS, YOU ARE STILL CONCERNED ABOUT JEAN? WHAT ABOUT TEE? THE ONE WHO’S BEEN THERE FOR YOU. THE ONE WHO TAKES CARE OF YOU. THE ONE YOU REALLY LIKE? WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU BOY? I’M DONE. BYE.

However, our lord and savior, the epitome of grace – Tee handles it well by telling Fuse to follow his heart instead. 😥 😥

DO YOU SEE THAT FUSE? THAT’S WHO YOU SHOULD ASPIRE TO BE. YOU ARE LOSING THAT OVER SOME GIRL! UGH.

Then, after all of this, he still has the balls to say let’s still be friends. Oh. My. God. Of course, he can’t let go of poor Tee and wants all the attention. Has he thought about how this makes Tee feel? Of course not. Tee just says that he needs some time to sort this out and they will always be good friends. And, they have breakup sex.

Rodtang is busy playing the cool dude and now apparently, has an assistant. He is cutting class and is still hasn’t gone to the basketball practice. The boy with pretty eyelashes is pissed af. Nine assures him that he will handle the situation and goes to look for Rod. Rod, on the other hand, gets caught by the young teacher but using his charms, he gets away. Nine, seeing this, isn’t happy and lectures him about being responsible and good person. Rod just rolls his eyes mutters something about wanting to take care of his family, etc. It seems he’s become too cool for P’Nine.

In school, Fuse still wants to be friends with Tee and invites him to do homework together and go to the tutoring class together. But, Tee cooly rebuffs his attention seeking attempt and walks away. Yass!!!! You show him Tee!

Then, in the tutoring class, it seems Jean has also joined the same place and she asks for Fuse’s bag and wants Fuse to sit with her instead of Tee. When Fuse brings him some refreshments, Jean calls him over and takes that too. Ugh. I would be angry but right now, all I can say is – good riddance.

Then, to my pleasant surprise, we finally get another suitor for Tee’s affection – Cid/Sid. About time MIR, about BLOODY TIME.

Few facts about the new suitor:

  • He looks hella’ fine.
  • He is quite adept at flirting.
  • He was Tee’s classmate back in the day.
  • He likes Tee (obv.)
  • People used to tease Tee and Cid as lovers! (Omg, so cute)

But of course, Tee seems a little guarded with his emotions and doesn’t jump as quickly as our friend Cid. I hope that this leads to somewhere.

The best part is of course, the look on Fuse’s face, when he realizes that Tee already has a lot of options besides him! HAH!

Then, there’s some thing about Yok using Lukmo to get back at his mother. He literally wraps Mo as a present and gives it to his mother, who obviously goes berserk. I have no idea where this story line is going. I feel his mother is at least right in some ways, like not the homophobic part but the part where this 15 year old is moving in with this boy friend of his?? Kids these days, am I right?

Verdict: Not. I mean, where is the good kind of drama? Where are the cute high jinks? Where is the good kind of comedy? Where’s the romance? It’s just sad and melancholic now. However, the introduction of Cid, and Book and Frame’s cuteness made the episode bearable. (Also, skipping past all the hetero and Yok and Mo story lines definitely helped.)

Next episode: Tee moves out from Fuse’s house while Mo moves in with Yok.

Recap | Make It Right | s02e02

No preamble today. Let’s recap (Spoilers, obv.)

So, we start episode 2 in the bathroom (where else?). Yok is pooping while Mo is on the other stall besides Yok trying to woo him. It’s all very romantic /s. With farts and poop-splash noises as the soundtrack of their romance, Mo finally manages to get Yok’s phone number and declares his intent to pursue Yok.

To be honest, the dialogues in these scenes are actually pretty funny and quite good (or at least the translations). But, but, but, the splash noises man … I don’t even know what to say. Anywho, even though I’m not happy, Mo is definitely happy with the progress he’s made and even though he gets teased about it, he’s still in good spirits.

Meanwhile, Rodtang is just chilling in the basketball court. You know, now that he’s famous and stuff – I guess, he can just chill. 😛 Then, in the midst of that chill sesh, the music teacher (I’m assuming) comes and starts to give some constructive criticism about the band’s performance from the previous episode. He says that they need a little bit of heart and soul in their music, which is currently missing. Rod’s “friend” promptly blames Rod and says that since he’s busy doing all other shiz – they haven’t been able to practice. Rod then asks the teacher to help them improve and the teacher agrees.

I have so many questions – a. Why is that teacher so young/hot? b. Why is he so interested in this particular group? c. Was he watching them perform last episode? Why wasn’t I paying attention? d. Is it bad that I think that this teacher and Rod should start getting it on? Haha.

Anyway, after this interaction, the basketball team comes (with Nine) to practice in the court. Apparently, Rodtang is also in the team but hasn’t been coming to the practice as Rod’s trying to do it all (drums, drama, band, basketball, etc). And, the guy named Lamom (legit – the coolest name ever) isn’t happy. He starts shouting at Rod and they nearly get into a fight. Luckily, Nine interferes and protects Rod and covers for him.

Meanwhile, the it couple of the moment – Book and Frame – are busy playing house. Surprisingly, Frame is now cooking for Book and tending to his needs and all in all, is very caring. This is illustrated further when Frame gets some messages from his fan club in the middle of their homely dinner and ends up deleting them and blocking them instead of reading/replying. He then goes on to tell Book that he’s not that sort of guy anymore because he now has a boyfriend! (Awww … this reminds me so much of 2 moons.)

Then, we see Yok hatching a plan with Christina to get back at his mom for giving him grief about being gay. And, I think that plan involves Yok making Mo as his boyfriend as we see him asking Mo to move in with him and giving him an underwear as a present.

I mean … again … so many questions. a. Do these teenagers not have any parental supervision? b. Are they so independent/mature that they decide to live alone/move in together on a whim? c. Are all of their parents so rich that they can afford individual condos for their children? d. How are these teenagers so sexually active and mature? (I’m just envious, that’s all. Haha)

In the land of Tee and Fuse, Tee has conveniently moved to Fuse’s house to “tutor him” (again, none of their parents have any problem with this). And they even setup a future plot point here when Tee invites Fuse back to his condo. We can see that out of these two, Tee is definitely the happiest  as he is looking forward to spend more time with his beau. But, it’s MIR and they can’t seem to tolerate seeing Tee this happy. So, when they’re on a date and Tee is about to say something cute and romantic, MIR thrusts Jean back into the picture. Apparently, the guy Tee and Fuse saw with Jean was just her brother and she still thinks that Fuse is her boyfriend.

The episode ends with a long montage of Tee being sad and melancholic.

Not:

  • Yes, I know Line produced the series. So, any sponsoring thing is inevitable. But, they literally shoehorned the tutorial on how to use Line Messaging Services twice in this episode. -1000
  • The fight between Rod and Lamom seemed so fake. -100
  • The thigh grab and the underwear gift from Yok was not for me. I don’t support this unholy union. -50

  • Why can’t MIR see Tee be a little bit happy? And, he even got a sad and lonely montage! Ugh, and he’s also such a martyr, sacrificing his happiness for that of the others. -1000

Total: -101,695

Verdict: Not. Literally, nothing exciting or of any significance happened this episode. People were just randomly coming and going in the show. People were giving advice and no one seemed to be actually following it. I don’t know. I think they just ran out of story, it seems. And, why is everything/everyone so sad and miserable. That’s why, I’m paying attention to these weird details, which otherwise I would have been too busy too notice. The only good thing about MIR right now is Frame and Book and Boom (not Tee, the character). Hopefully, MIR can recover as the season goes along.

Next episode: I don’t know. I was so bored, I just closed my browser.
