She wasn’t sure what she thought but she is simpler and naive than she thought. Megu-chi says that Mizuho is cute and has good points but that she lacks self-confidence and that if the guy is stupid enough to not want her after she has shown him all that she is then he deserves to be kicked out. She says that she won’t get hurt and then she asks her if she has someone that she likes cause then she would have been laughing at all of this.

Picture 15

Wow what an intense ending we are no closer to figuring out anything about Haruka but I think there is a better understanding of Hikaru. I mean the ending was pretty intense it almost seemed like a thriller when Mizuho was walking around his house and no one is around but the door was unlocked. I mean how long was Hikaru seating there and watching her? Creepy! I mean she really shouldn’t have been going through that and watching the video she should have asked him about it because he is going to freak on her!! I guess it makes sense why he knows how to read people and understand them because of his mom. The whole watching recording him like no wonder he has problems attaching to people because the parent that he is supposed to be attached to does not really let him do that. Hikaru was basically a science project for his mother and was the basis for her research, which is pretty sick and twisted!! Yikes I am soo curious to see what is going to happen!!

Picture 14

Mizuho is walking down the school hall and sees and hears Hikaru and a girl talking and she asks him if she can come over and he tells her that his house is being remodeled. Mizuho walks fast past them and she asks when it will be over and he says he doesn’t know.

Mizuho and Hikaru are in bed and he puts his pillow close to hers and says that lately he has trouble sleeping without her, she smiles and they snuggle together. Mizuho is about to talk to him but realizes he is sleeping. She thinks that that she can’t help but want to be spoiled by Hikaru and she wonders if he will accept everything about her and that is how the second episode ends.
Picture 15

I find this episode very intriguing but it sure didn’t focus on Haruka very much or really go back to the funeral in the present day. It focused more on Hikaru and Mizuho’s relationship that is undefined. I mean Mizuho doesn’t want to allow herself to fall in love with Hikaru because he is a womanizer and she doesn’t want to be just one of the girls in his long line up of women. Hikaru seems really childish just wanting to do be physical with her and test her out like every woman he comes in contact with. He obviously has issues with his mother which means also with other woman almost a self-fulfilling prophecy. His mother left him therefore he will treat woman badly and they will leave him again therefore proving to himself that he was right. Mizuho is smart and doesn’t let him get what he wants all the time because she realizes that she wants to be treated differently and wants to just be around him because she likes him beyond his looks. She is intrigued by not just his looks but who he is and what makes him tick. I am not sure how Haruka is going to be at the center of the story but I guess I will have to keep watching to figure it out!!

One girl says that she still likes him and that he is kind to girls. Another says that she doesn’t like him.

Before she can say anything Hikaru sitting in front on her throws his workbook to her and she gets up and look through the book that is completely filled out.

The teacher tells them that during summer vacation they should study hard and take care of themselves. Hikaru gets up and Mizuho says thanks and he says not to forget her book next time.

She tells him that she doesn’t like it when the teacher complains about it not being enough. Hikaru sits looking at her saying that she always weight the pros and cons carefully, rather than acting on emotion. She tells him that he shouldn’t make fun of people by pretending to analyze them.  She tells him that she will keep in mind what he is saying. He then touches her lips with his finger and leans in for a kiss. She is in shock and asks why and he says it was just because her lips looked so pretty and shiny. She tells him that she just barely put on lip gloss and he says oh. The girl then interrupts and asks if they should go and he then leaves with her.Picture 6 Picture 7

The girls are at lunch and Remi says that Hikaru and Natsuki have broken up. Kyouko wonders if it is her fault because she and Hikaru met on the train and he dropped her off at home once. Another girl says that he probably just did that because they were going the same way . Kyouko disagrees and says that he smiles at her a lot and that she is sure he has special feelings for her. The other girl says that he is like that to everyone. Mizuho says that he is close to everyone and that is why he can easily step into other people’s private space but doesn’t have any particular feelings to anybody. The other girls stare at her and Remi says that she sure has studied him in detail.

The girls are looking out the window and they see Hikaru with a third year girl. They joke around about how many girls he has dated. Kyouko watches them and gets mad and walks away the others follow after her and Mizuho stays. The third year girl leaves and Hikaru stands up and she watches him.

Hikaru walks down the hallway and Natsuki comes up to him and asks why it turned out this way and that they loved each other. Hikaru snorts and she asks what is funny and he says that he never intended to go out with her and he asks her if he ever said that he liked her. She says that he didn’t have to say it and that he was nice to her. He says that he did that so that she would sleep with him and that they had fun and they shouldn’t hold grudges.

In the classroom Mizuho gets her test back and gets a 93 she looks at Hikaru’s test and he got a 33 and the teacher says that those who got under 35 will take the test again next week. Hikaru says to Mizuho sorry and if she can meet him later.

Mizuho and Hikaru later are by some railing in the school and she asks why they are here. She sees the third year girl running around the hallways and she says that his girlfriend is looking for him. He is copying out her notes and says that they are just going out with no strings attached.  He then says that no decent woman would go out with him unless she was totally insane. They walk back into the school and the third year finds him she asks why she is avoiding her. He tells her that she looks scary and she gets angry asking is he is trying to make a fool out of her. She asks if Mizuho is his new girlfriend, Mizuho says no and he says what if she is. The girl says she won’t allow it and he says they can work it out with each other and walks away. Mizuho tells her that it is a misunderstanding and then runs away the girl runs after her. Hikaru then grabs Mizuho into the mens room and the girl stops and then runs past them. Mizuho hits him and asks him what he was doing and he tells her that he thought she could persuade her because she is smart. She tells him that he shouldn’t decide things on his own and then he tells her that this is the men’s washroom and she runs out.

She asks why he provoked them on purpose and that he is immature. He asks why she is angry and she angrily says she is not. He says her hands are shaking and she yells shut up. He grabs her hand and asks if she was scared, he says sorry. He touches her face and then kisses her cheek. He asks why her expression doesn’t change even when she is being kissed. He says weird girl and gets up and starts walking away. She thinks that she likes the person that she is when she is with Hikaru a lot but she equally hates the person that reacts to such a guy. A guy that always gouges his way deep into her heart.

At the funeral Rumi is crying and she says that to think she was only 19 and that maybe she had lots of things she wanted to do and somebody she loved and if it was her she would definitely regret it. Everyone goes up to her casket . Mizuho remembers her sitting in class and then as she walks away she drops her handkerchief and Rumi whispers her name and says she dropped it. Haruka’s mother comes up and says her name and tells her that she wants to talk to her.

Haruka’s mother is talking to Mizuho and tells her that she is thankful that she was Haruka’s friend. The mother asks her if she knows the man that Haruka was dating. Haruka’s mom tells her that Haruka was pregnant with his child and she doesn’t need to hide it. That is the end of the first episode of Piece.

This seems like it is going to be a very interesting drama!! It seems like it is going to be a mystery of trying to understand Haruka! Even though nobody seems like they have a connection to this girl that seems nerdy I bet there is going to be a very interesting story behind everything!! I love that it is very psychological and trying to understand the different characters. Mizuho and Hikaru are trying to understand each other but it seems like they have a hard time understanding each others way of thinking. I love that it goes into the past and present and everything seems harsh and cold in their world. I do not really have a good handle on the characters just what they have shown so it is hard to know what is really going to happen. I have been waiting for this drama to be subbed so that is why I am only reviewing the episodes now! I really enjoyed this first episode! I think the next episodes are only about 20 minutes.

Full-House-2_1      

  I first have to say that I would have done episode reviews on Full House 2, but I wasn’t sure if I was going to stick to this drama and therefore did not start doing reviews. I am sorry that I did not because this drama was amazing!! I loved it more than to the beautiful you!

I recently watched Full House, the first one because I really wanted to see Rain act and so I watched it and it was not bad but I would not say that it my favorite drama so far. I found the story line start to get old after awhile because it seemed so predictable and the characters did not seem to have much depth. I think because I was not really attached to the characters in the first one I had no problems with the second one being very different.

I realize that people seemed to not want to watch the drama because of Jang Man Ok’s hairstyle which was a short perm! I agree it was not the best look for her but I could look past it. I had seen a previous drama and knew that she could act so I was willing to still watch. Halfway through they did change her hairstyle and get rid of her perm and it did look a lot better but I didn’t really care. The other problem that I tended to hear was that the story line was too similar to You’re Beautiful and I also agree there are some similarities but I did not feel that it was ripping off the other drama it was still quite a bit different. I think that I have enjoyed this drama even more than You’re Beautiful but it is hard to tell because i haven’t seen that drama in awhile. From what I remember the characters where not as developed as the characters in Full House 2. I mean everything intermingled and the relationships are messy in this series which always kept me at the edge of my seat. I found in You’re Beautiful I never really found that i believed that Jeremy and Shin Woo were madly in love with Go Ni Mam. I found Tae-Kyung way more scary than Tae-Ik. Of course there is no gender reversals.

I really found this drama to be worth watching and what I enjoyed was the character depth, first of all and they show different aspects of Kwang-Hwi and Tae-Ik with their family past and the heartbreaks they have had. Secondly I enjoyed the friendship story line throughout the drama and loved that they focused on this aspect as it always makes me more weepy than even love lines. Thirdly I love that they seemed like they were singers and well the dancing could have been better but I loved their singing!! I also really liked that there was romance but this was not the complete focus as that can get stale if they focus on that too much for all the episodes. I also really liked that they split the episodes up it made it easier to watch and made me want to keep watching as if I didn’t get enough. I have to say there was a lot less flashbacks than I was expecting through the series! or maybe their was less romantic ones I’m not sure but I guess I was not bothered by this as much. There is just soo much going on in each episode I was never disappointed!! The lead men were cute and handsome and a joy to watch!! The ending is perfect I could not have asked for a better one!! I needed it to be a good one!!

What I didn’t like about this drama was that some parts did not exactly make sense and that was the Grandpa’s role. The way he acted was not exactly what I thought he was going to for example he comes home after all that time and does not get mad about no one coming to the classes and  I am sure he would have found out sooner or later about the stuff that went on at his place while he was gone from he neighbors. He lets her go one time easily and the next he is so upset? I just found that his character was inconsistent. Another thing I didn’t understand was that Kwang-Hwi was going to lose his eyesight and never see again but if he goes to China then he can have the surgery?? It was weird he should have just gone to China then right away and the President should have just got him the surgery rather than making him wait?? not sure if I was missing something but that seemed odd. Also I didn’t really care for Man Ok fashion I realize that she is supposed to design her own clothes, but I really did not care for the style of her clothes!!

Overall I recommend that all of you go watch Full House 2 right now if you have not watched it yet!! I have thoroughly enjoyed it and now feel soo sad that it is over!!!
