Random thoughts on DoTS (Eps 13-14)

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if our favourite bromantic couple had a kiss too? =D

1. How many PPLs were in these two episodes? Let’s count:

  • Subway
  • Snickers
  • almond nuts
  • auto-cruising car
  • possibly non-auto-cruising car
  • soft toys
  • jewellery
  • soju
  • coffeeshop
  • facial masks
  • mobile phone (but might have been a standard issue shot)
  • possibly Chocopie (though that might be just nationalism at work)
  • pay-per-view movie channel?

What have I missed out?

2. Soldiers should have better sense than to engage in mobile phone shenanigans or French kissery when on auto pilot mode in self-driving cars.

3. It is possible to be up and running and shooting accurately after a cardiac arrest where you have flatlined and lost enough blood to make Spike happy.

4. PTSD can be funny. If this were a more serious drama, we might have seen what soldiers go through after all the battlefield carnage.

5. Planning ahead before throwing in a resignation letter is important if your diet does not allow eating your own words.

6. Who is the enigmatic senior that Myung-joo and Mo-yeon fought over?

7. Yoo Ah-In’s cameo might have generated more heat with Song Joong-ki.

8. Dumb and Dumber is a good way to describe our army lads outside of the battlefield. More bromantic shenanigans (which may or may not result in gay jokes) would not be unappreciated for comic relief.

9. Dae-young has a feminine side.

10. Adult Korean couples in their late 20s or 30s have extremely chaste relationships.

11. The more cute and/or romantic moments there are, the more intense the angst (self-manufactured or circumstantial).

12. Scenes and setups segue very well into the next.
