Oh My Venus Week Four Review: Episode 7

Episode 7 Oh My Venus
Our girl is palpably giddy after the first real liplock of the drama.

Smooth, Young Ho. So smooth. You’ve got the Daegu Venus all trembly and gaspy after that brief, smoking smooch.

But then Joo Eun goes…

And I’m like…whoa. At least get a room, guys!

But of course there’s a good reason for her request *ahem* demand.

She just needs his hoodie to cover up in the car, since she’s meant to hide her identity while staying with them.

Yeah right. Good excuse to play down how flustered she is after that sizzling kiss…

John Kim aka Young Ho looks oh-so-smug after not getting slapped for being too forward and stealing a kiss!

I just love how this episode handles the post-kiss awkwardness.

And Shin Min Ah (as Joo eun) plays goofy in a cool, awesome way that other actresses should emulate.

You can be dorky without being all scream-y, jumpy and just plain annoying. Watch and learn, girls.

Kang Joo-eun spends the night possibly lost in forbidden fantasies featuring her and her red-hot coach John Kim.

Can’t say we blame her. Their chemistry has been steaming up our screens since episode one. These two get major points for being such a believable pair that are so into each other from the word ‘go’.

But we still don’t really know what’s going on. I mean, they both never really spelled anything out after that kiss.

Are they ready to enter the ‘friends to lovers’ stage, are they now an item, what?

Mornings-after can be sooo awkward…but these two are soo cute at being awkward!

I’m really impressed by Oh My Venus so far. Into the fourth week, and the mid-tempo flow never gets boring.

Our couple can hardly be called budding innocents, but they seem far from jaded.

I admire how mature actors like So Ji Sub and Shin Min carry their age so well. It’s fun, quirky yet, mentally stimulating to watch two people so in tune with each other’s magnetism.

There’s no underdog in terms of hotness, that’s for sure. They both smoke up the screen from frame to frame. Could this be the best Kdrama couple pairing of 2015?

****Dead**** ugh these two are slaying with the feels this week!!

OK, back to serious stuff.

The assault case at the Law firm where Joo Eun works, is heating up.

The mother of the victim demands an apology. Joo Eun plays a listening ear, but we don’t know if the fight of the poor vs rich can ever be fair.

Joo Eun and Lawyers like her who have to work for the rich, can only do so much for the downtrodden.

Joo-eun gives some hard-headed advice. She definitely knows her way around a law suit, this one.

My fave Christmas song ‘O Holy Night’ plays in the background at the coffee place – which hints that the drama is following a parallel time line with us in the real world.

Yippee! Glad to know Joo Eun will have some romance in her stocking this Christmas. Lucky gal.

Flashbacks to when Joo-eun’s dad passed, with her mother in a similar situation as the assaulted girl’s mother

More Highlights of Episode 7 Oh My Venus
Joo-eun’s family isopening the new shop this weekend! It feels bittersweet for Joo-eun, thinking how far she had to go, and how much she sacrificed, so her family can have a life of ease.

Joo Eun and Vice CEO Soo Jin have a little face-off about their former shared goals. When they both wanted to be the best lawyers. Obviously, Soo Jin’s perspective has changed.

More family time, but in this case it’s Young Ho and his grandma, paying respects to his mother’s memory?

Grandma gets a John Kim hug too. Now I’m really getting jealous!!!

I definitely had some teary moments when watching Grandmother Lee and Young Ho.

He knows he has a responsibility to the company his mother and grandmother built, but he warns her he may not be up to the task. Her response? Is simply to apologize, and thank him.

What I like most about this drama? None of the bells and whistles.

So far at least, the drama has let its acting speak for itself.

And the soundtrack is on point, which helps.

This is a truly solid offering from Kdrama royalty So Ji Sub and Shin Min A, and of course the rest of the awesome cast and crew.

Young Ho remembers his younger self, troubled by the knee illness he struggled with most of his early life

So what do I want this drama to do for me? Well for one, to take a kiss more seriously!

I mean hey, the steamy smooch dropped in episode 6 and then what? Our couple back-pedals! As in, they act like it didn’t even happen. I hate it when kdramas do that!

I get that it was a pretty tame, blink-and-miss kiss by worldly standards, but on a Kdrama tip, that liplock was on fire. So I don’t get how they don’t even build on that, and just step right over it. Like it’s just a figment of imagination.

OK so I do get it, it’s just episode 7. Plenty of time to get their love on.

Geez girl, I know right?!

What sets Oh My Venus apart from other similar dramas, like say She Was Pretty, is that you really learn something about being good to your body. Not just for the vain aspect of looking good, but also for feeling good. And being the best you can be.

Oh My Venus is stuffed with tips on living, fitness and wellbeing. If you aren’t in it for the comedy and romance, then enjoy the little fit facts of life.

Funny scenes with Henry and Sung Hoon, who has a new admirer

There’s a lot going on with everyone in episode 7. It makes you feel this is a real drama with real people, facing real problems you can relate with.

Winning a case at work, domestic abuse, hanging out with a cute nephew after school, and just surviving day to day.

How most of us are by the end of a busy day like the one Joo-eun just had!

This has to be my best episode hands down. We have a little bit of everything and the ending certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Kang Joo eun finally finds out who John Kim/Young Ho really is.

Well, since my fave Kdrama theme is chaebol romance – tee hee – I’m liking that the Cinderella game is getting stronger. Kim Young Ho has this like, lofty pedigree – while Joo-eun is from very humble beginnings.

Now that she knows their backgrounds are in different stratospheres, what’s Joo-eun going to do?

Well, she’s just been through a nasty breakup, so her emotions are kind of raw.

She’s already falling hard for Coach Kim, but I think this is more than a rebound thing. And yet, why does it seem to her like he was simply messing with her emotions?

image

The great divide between Joo-eun and Young Ho just got a lot bigger…

It can be uncomfortable, finding out someone isn’t exactly what you thought. And John Kim is going to get a whole lot of misunderstood next episode. I feel for him – but I feel for Joo-eun even more.

She already had some hidden self esteem issues about her weight and looks next to Mr. ‘Muscle Angel’. Now she finds out he’s rich as sin?

I’m looking forward to episode 8 in a major way. Especially to find out if these two get to make up and then go on that camping trip! Daegu, anyone?
