Seong Deok Mi is an art curator for a prestigious art museum during the day and the loyal manager of the pop idol Cha Si An’s fansite at night. She uses her business trips as excuses to catch glimpses of her Cha Si An, treasures her high-powered camera to capture the clearest picture of her prince charming only to photoshop his photos before publication, and goes on the fangirl version of a pilgrimage to holy places Cha Si An’s feet have walked upon. Her new boss, Ryan Gold, a genius artist from America who discontinued painting for mysterious reasons, clashes with Seong Deok Mi the first few times they interact, revealing the sexual tension behind all that “interacting.” Through Cha Si An and a coveted painting by an unknown painter, Ryan Gold and Seong Deok Mi become more connected outside of their professional lives.

Hellloooooo! Agent 1106 Kappy reporting to recapping duty. We go from one extreme to another with our double premiere episodes on Monday, from the depths of inhumanity to the glimpses and scattered pieces of hope and kindness.

Ruler–Master of the Mask: Episodes 1 – 8 First Impression “Puppy vs Wolf.”

Wow. This is unexpected. I thought it would be, yunno, light and fluffy in the beginning and then heavy and angsty towards the end. Nope! No siree!

And our rookie director may be the root of their animosity, even if they don’t know it yet.
