Love Catcher S2 E4: The love triangle becomes a love square

Spoiler alert: never underestimate the youngest of the group. Before you get into episode 3, remember to read about episode 1 here and episode 2 here and episode 3 here! Chae Rang and In Ook scheduled a breakfast-making date the day before, making this the first time these two are alone together. Chae Rang gets ready at 8:30 am, and I mean this girl is full makeup ready with some fancy dangle earrings. The thing is, In Ook forgets and goes jogging with two other guys. Disappointed, she comes back to the girls’ side of the house and then Sae Ra with the cute save “How can people go running this early?” Again, my new girl crush. To our surprise (or not), when In Ook comes back he doesn’t even remember he made such plans. Lol. Leave it to the sweet guys Jung Jin and Chan Woo to the rescue with helping Chae Rang for breakfast. Is there a theme that people follow every day? I mean, these guys are head to toe identical in …

Love Catcher S2 E3: The pool of jealousy

Spoiler alert: Min Seok’s identity will be revealed in this review! Before you get into episode 3, remember to read about episode 1 here and episode 2 here! Tensions start to rise as love lines start to form. But before we get into that, can we get an amen to the men who took off their shirts in this episode? The first one is Yeon Woo. Let’s just say, never underestimate the youngest of the bunch! So Young expresses to Ga Bin that she has an interest in In Ook, and Ga Bin reveals that she feels the same but also is confused because she also is interested in Chan Woo. But zoom out, and you’ll see that while they’re talking, Chae Rang is in front of them “looking in the mirror” but actually secretly snitching on the other two girls. Goodness, I called it from the beginning that this girl is all about being a Money Catcher. Side note, as much as I am not a huge fan of Chae Rang, her earrings are …

Love Catcher S2 E2: The love triangles begin to form

Pop quiz: one of these guests worked at Hong Suk Chun’s cafe before the show. So it’s day 2 (literally) for these contestants and today’s date involves a wedding photo shoot. I mean, I know the producers want to break the ice for them early on but I feel like some of the girls seem uncomfortable getting this close too soon. Nevertheless, it does the job! If you haven’t watched episode two, I warned you – you should stop here!Or go read about Episode 1 to get you up to speed! The show begins on a zoom-in on Chan Woo’s back muscles as he’s swimming in the infinity pool when everyone is sleeping. To recap from the voting night before, he did not get any votes from the girls. It almost seems like this scene symbolizes a swim of rage?! After he finishes swimming, he goes upstairs to get ready for his breakfast-making date with Ga Bin, but lo and behold In Ook is already in the dressing room – fiercely staring Chan Woo down …

Love Catcher S2 E1: Would you choose: love or money?

This week, the Korean TV show, Love Catcher, came back for season 2! If you are a fan of reality shows like me, you know that season 1 was an all-time nail biter and it looks like season 2 will not be let us down! To summarize the show: 10 participants divvy up into “love catchers” who are out to find true love, and “money catchers” who join with the goal of winning the 50 million won (or $45,000) prize. Love catchers should avoid money catchers when finding their partners. On the other hand, those going after the money can only win the prize by partnering with love catchers. If they end up with another money catcher, they are dropped from the game and do not win any money. And all in the span of 8 days! Spoiler alert: cooking is a way to a girl’s heart. The first episode started off with 5 women and 5 men walking into this big-ass picture-perfect pension. (In Korea, a pension is a type of guest house.) A couple things to note …
