RECAP: Glory Jane Last Episode [CP]

originally posted: September 26, 2015

This along with this whole entire blog was suppose to be put up far much more earlier but I kept having problems so I couldn’t post this up until now. Everything was all originally written 2012/16/ 2 or 2/16/2012. This is my first recap so please excuse the noobnes~

~Sorries. I was so busy handwriting down notes and then I typed this up and it’s still notey but don’t worry! There’s some things in here that’s not so notey in here~

-So I missed an episode or two..or five. I’ll still take the time to write-

-Ah! There’s no other episodes! And I apologize, I just didn’t feel like it or didn’t have the time. But oh I could’ve bought the DVD if only..if only..I had the money-

-Um..I don’t know this language.
I have little or no knowledge of this language so if there are any mistakes I apologize.

(My attempt at the little statements you see at Wikias where an articles in unfinished or something.)

Yeonggwang has a new hairstyle. First thing I noticed.
He decides to quit Sales Team 1 to be baseball.
There are some disappointments but everyone supports him.
He gets Jae in

Wants revenge against Seo Incheol. He plans to become his right hand man like he did for his father and betray him like what he did also.

Next scene!
Inwu asks Heo to help restore Yeonggwang confidence for the baseball field. After he asks him for help and Heo says he gave up baseball 10 years ago.

Next scene!
Baseball training

Hyonui and the gangsta guy watches. Hyuni gives facts.
Heo quit baseball because of a bad injury.
Daesong (The clean freak!) was a Geodae player, he was famous for having a killing curve. But he quit because though he had a killer curve he never made it in the strike zone. He was a killer curve pitcher who could never strick out batters.
She makes an observation that Yeonggwang isn’t strong enough.

More training~
Heo gives yeonggwang advice on his training tips, giving him warning that he will ruin his knee joints and break a rib by the outdated training he’s doing.
Tells him to not use the sandbags (for the knee) tells him to use the sandbags (for the ribs)
Heo trains Yeonggwang.
Inwu sees him playing a practice game and how he is doing bad at it. He comments he won’t be the home run king if he is already tired from the small practice game. He watches more, sees Yeonggwang fail and notes that it is “Pretty boring” to watch Yeonggwang play.
Bit disappointed Yeonggwang is in the locker room, then sees a note from Jae in on his locker.
“Become the home run kind, okay?”
This lifts Yeonggwangs mood as he gets a flashback of Jae in saying the exact same thing when they were young.

9 months later in fall

It’s breakfast time and grandmother comments ma’am forgot to set a plate for Jae in. Ma’am says Jae in went to work. Grandmother says she must’ve forgot and that she’s going senile. (She actually has an illness that’s really affecting her more than it has in previous episodes)

The oldest of the two sisters Yeonggwang has says she won’t be able to eat breakfast due to the fact that she is late.
The youngest Jingu skips breakfast also because she’ll be late for her job. Ma’am is shocked at this and asks if she has given up her acting dream. Jingu says no and says she wanted to give herself an allowance.

Grandmother calls for Jae in and Yeonggwang. Ma’am says one went to work (JI) and the other is doing baseball. (yg) [Grandmother’s illness is really bad. O.O]

Jingu is at work, she is orderd to clean tables. She says she will do her best happily.

Geodae International Seo Incehol is applauded and complimented on the good work he has done for the company. We see him proudly sitting at his desk. His assitant asks him if there’s anything that he needs and Inwu comes back on screen. He scoffs at him.

Seo Incheol: (to assistant) Close the door on your way out [Thought he was talking to Inwu before the camera turned to her..the assistant that is]

Jae in’s out walking with her detective friend. Looking a lot better but looks like she still needs help with some things. They talk about Jae in. JI’s mom says she bought two more alarm clocks so she won’t be late for her job tommorrow, she notes that she is like her dad. The detective agrees but adds on saying he was always late anyway. JI’s mom hopes that she did not inheirt that also.

Jae in is pedaling like a speed demon a bike as she thinks to herself: I’m late! She gets dressed in a uniform. [which made me think she was a coach of some sort] She then rushes to the meeting place and hides. Before she comes out and crashes to someone. A voice calls out her name she looks up and sees a familar face. A woman with glasses, clipboard in her hand who is soon surprised that she is there.
“Still getting in trouble?”
“Still talking back.”
She says to JI who apologizes and chuckles nervously.
The woman orders everyone it’s time to do the rounds, except for one, JI who is ordered to organize equipment in 30 minutes. [Reminds me of a certain task given to her while she was still a trainee for Sales Team 1] JI cheerfuly says Yes! Which surprised the woman.
The hopsital is busy as JI goes to organize the equipment.

Coach not happy everyone on the team is like injured

See Yeonggwang getting prepared swinging as it is suggested or mentioned that he should join the major team
-Coach shows no faith, player comments the look in his eyes is different from before. After a bit more of talking he decides to allow him on the team

See crowd cheering
Annoucer annoucing the game.
Commenting its cold.
An hour ago it was windy and raining

Noodle Shop
Grandmother and Mother see the tv is on. Customer calls out. Mother tells grandmother to say something when yeonggwang is on

Jingu at work
She mets a guy who is watching the game on his cell phone and mentions that she knows the Geodae dragons. He seems to be interested

At game

Sales team one is at the game. Hyonui comments Jane is late and camera pans to empty seat next to Daesong


Jane is at the hopsital, finally off work and changed into street clothes. She looks at her ticket and is on her way to leave but a nurse comes to her and says a bad and big accident has happened. Jane thinks while the camera goes to..

The game
IT is commented by player that Yeonggwang is missing.
A comment from (that one dude) is that the Geodae team is slow.

-Injured patients everywhere. IT’s a bloody mess.
We see Jane is changed and is helping with a patient that another nurse is struggling to help. The woman before is satisified with this.

Base ball
The Geodae team is loosing. While Yeonggwang still is not there

Jae in
-Jae in helps more patients

The game

Yeonggwang is still swinging

Jae in is still helping

The Geodae team is now loosing very badly

Jae in still helping patients with the game

The annoucers comment that Geodae team is losing. The players feel chased and that the double play will be the desieve desicion (wahtever that means)
The players feel nervous as they watch the game from the pit.

Jae in looks at her watch and is surprised how late it is.
The woman comments that Jae in was slow dressing the patient’s wounds. Jae in immdiately apologizes. The woman then compliments how she handeled the blood (remember the other nurse couldn’t do it and Jae in steps in and the woman is satisified with this.) Jae in is shocked, thanks the woman and says she’ll work harder. The woman being critical again says she should stop exgerrating. Jae in’s energy goes down and she apologizes. The woman tells her to write an apology letter tommorrow bfore dismissing her.
JAe in checks her watch then runs

The game
Geodae is still sucking booty.
The annoucer annouces another batter. And Yeonggwang is still swinging. The coach then orders for someoen to get Yeonggwang and he stops swinging. Jae in make sit to the game in time to see Yeonggwang heading to the pitcher’s plate.

Noodle shop

The grandmother says Yeonggwang is on and the mother quickly runs to see her son.

Jingu sees the game from the customer’s (dude’s) phone and comments that the guy on the plate is her brother. After she sparked the interest of the guy and he asked if he knew her after she cried out his name.
Everyone’s spirits are now lifted as antcipation quickly comes in the crowd begins to cheer Yeonggwang’s name.
Inwu smiles and says, “You’re finally up to base.”
Jae in dramatically says his name and takes out the famous base balls before syaing he could do it.
A moment of silence happens and the cheers are distorted. Yeongwang strikes once…The crowd’s mood is dampened. He strikes twice…the crowd again is dampened but still cheers him on. The pitcher throws the ball as a slow mo happens in the most dramatic way and Yeonggwang…
“I raced froward for this moment.” He thinks as he focuses. A flashback happens to the ups and downs of what has happened in that year at the company, when he played baseball before, moments with Jae in, etc.
“I’m offering this moment to my father.” We see is father Kim Inbae looking at the us then turning around to walk. “Watch me Jae in.”
Jane says his name twice. Yeonggwang can see the ball coming to him, he swings the bat and…
He gets a home run!

Everyone is happy.
And Inwu is…well
“IS he really going to be the homerun king? That’s going to be a pain for me.”

We then skip to another scene with Inwu. He talks to Yeonggwangs oldest of the two sisters he has. And comments she missed seeing Yeonggwang’s home run before asking is he has made a desicion. She gives him a envelope while saying that inside is proof of Seo Incheol embezzling’s. Inwu thanks her for being on his side. But she tells him he’s not on his side, she just doesn’t want Seo Incheol to get away with what he is doing.

Fast Forward~

We see a large poster of Yeonggwang in baseball attire on the wall. Grandmother says he’s her son. The mother looks at grandmother and says her son is Kim Inbae, Yeonggwang is her son. Grandmother’s response:
“Your son is my son.”

We see Jingu (Youngest of Yeonggwang’s 2 sisters) in the store buy soybean or soymily or whatever soy thing she’s getting with the guy she met at the restraunt during the game were Yeonggwang gets the home run. Both are trying to decide what brand they should get.

Sales Team 1.
Heo annouces they all get a bonus for top sales. Everyone cheers and pitches in about what part they’ll play in the celebration.
As Heo thinks:
“You’ll learn to be grateful of little things like this and appreciate them.”

Seo Incheol gets arrested in his office for Embezzlement by Jae in’s mom’s friend, Yeonggwang’s sister.
“There are things that can’t be forgiven.” – Yeonggwang’s siter

We then see Inwu is wiht a woman. Both are happy as he takes a picture and thinks.
“I gained the energy to live again because I could love you.”

We see Jae in getting a text and it’s from….Inwu! *gasp* She smiles at the photo that he sent to her. And says, “Another miraculous day begins.” She then goes to the storage and is overwhelmend by how much boxes there are. She shakes her head to get her thoughts from keeping her to do it and tells herself she can do it, with her trademark catchphrase Yeah! At the end. She then hears a voice asking: “Is anyone there?” She doesn’t respond and continues to work even after the question is asked by the same voice twice and she goes to investigate. She looks around and Bam! Popping out from behind a christmass tree is none other then Mr. homerun baseball player Yeonggwang!

Yeonggwang: Do you know me?
JAe in: (Says numerous amounts of facts about his baseball career at a pace that I just can’t requote her, sorries.)
Yeonggwang: How are you?
Jae in: I’m fine, how’s the training?
[Missed something here..yep yep.]
Yeonggwang: Will you marry me?
If I become homerun kind will you marry me?

OST plays as there is silence and smiles exchange. (Yea no one says anything…think there would be a yes or something but no. Just Jae in: 😀 yeonggwang: 😀 It’s assumed they are getting married. but what if they didn’t? Waht a twist that is!)
Camera zooms out as we see snow.

-Glory Jane [2/9/2012] (episode 21)



Recently, 4Ten released an album called “Jack of All Trades”. So far I’m only aware of “Severly” and “Tornado” having live performances and music videos.

To me “Severly” very much makes me think of KARA. I know I’ve seen many people go “Oh! Japanese music! It totally has a Japanese music vibe to it, especially anime music!”

But to me this song sounds like it can defintiely fit in KARA’s album more than a Japanese animation show.

To prove my point even more listen to to the KARA songs below and then tell me it doesn’t fit them.

“Way” by Kara [Album: Pandora]

“2Night” by KARA [Album: Full Bloom]

“Go Go Summer” by KARA

Damaged Lady by Kara [Album: Full Bloom]

(I attempted to not include popular songs, but I faileds. XD Especially for Damaged Lady. Hey! That song holds special meaning to me. )

KARA’s music from what I’ve heard has a lot of these undertones of 1980s and 1990s pop music to it. (And perhaps that’s why they did so well in Japan. Their sound didn’t really need to change to be more fitting for Japanese music charts. This group has able to do both Japanese and Korean charts well do to how their songs sounded.)

Last time I heard of 4Ten to be honest was for Poten “Go Easy”. Yep, I totes skipped over “Why”. In case you were wondering yep the band made some changes. They went from Poten to 4Ten.

Anyways, overall really like 4Ten’s “Severly” even more so than the previous songs that they made. Speaking of 4Ten’s recent and previous songs, I’ve noticed that the undertones of 4Ten’s songs are the same.

4Ten has a set sound but it’s subtle. It’s not like Ladies Code with “Pretty Pretty” and “Kiss Kiss” or EXID with “Up and Down” and “Ah yeah”, where I’ve seen multiple people reaching to state that you can sing the lyrics of one song with the instrumental of the other and it would fit perfectly. Which in my opinion and my testing, doesn’t. They do NOT fit perfectly with each other. I have tried this!




Boyfriend and Bora (Sistar)

I think it’s really interesting how Bora did BOYFRIEND “Bounce” and Boyfriend did SISTAR‘s (girl group Bora is part of) “Touch my Body”.

“Bounce” – Boyfriend (feat Bora of Sistar)

“Touch My Body” – Boyfriend (feat. Bora of Sistar) [Dance Cover]

I believe it’ll be really cool to see more collaborations like this happening between member(s) and group(s) within the S.Korea [South Korea] entertainment industry.

How about musical theatre actors/actress collab with K-pop groups/singers?

I’ll even count Joo Won as part of the musical theatre team simply because he was a musical theatre actor before he became a drama/movie actor.

I wouldn’t count Tiffany or someone that was an Idol before they became an musical actor.

I will count Eunjung and other idols who was originally trained to be an actor/musical actor.

Terms you may not know

Dance cover: is when someone takes another’s choreography and films/performs it themselves. WHILE making it clear to everyone that the choreography is indeed a COVER and not something they made themselves.

S.Korea: A shorterned version of South Korea. A country located within the continent of Asia. This country is considered part of East Asia.

Recently, people from around the world have been focusing on this country. This large focus has been dubbed as the “Hallyu Wave”.

Mostly the focus is on the country’s pop culture industry mainly the drama (tv shows, kinda of like soap operas), music, fashion, video games and beauty.

A low focus is on the country’s comic books and animation, though they are exported out of the country. Many of S.Korea’s comic books are mislabeled as “Manga” (Japanese comic books) so they can be sold due to the high popularity of manga.

The “Hallyu Wave” is said to have begun sometime in the 1990s when S.Korea first began exporting music to places such as China and Japan.
