The Man’s Voice – Part 2
This week Danielle shares the conclusion of the 2021 K-drama The Man’s Voice. As we pick up from last week, the mysterious woman with cat revenge fantasies, Jenna, has been visiting a detective agency to gather information on her romantic rival Mi Rim. Meanwhile, Tae Hwa takes Mi Rim out for some day drinking followed by a day trip to Busan using his pilot powers. Towards the end of the night, Tae Hwa flips a bottle cap to decide if they’ll spend the night in the city, but unsurprisingly, Mi Rim decides to ignore the bottle cap and call it a night. Also, there’s supposedly a talking cat in the show, but no one seems to care about Natsume while out on the town. A few days later Mi Rim is interviewing for a job, which is something that is apparently a plot, but since the show decides this plot line isn’t important, we won’t say any more about it here. Mi rim is also continuing to watch Natsume who is still hurling abuse at her for no apparent reason. Everything is going well when Jenna inserts herself back into Tae Hwa’s life, and through a series of sit-com level misunderstandings Mi Rim becomes convinced Tae Hwa, who she’s had all of two dates with, is cheating on her and refuses to see him again. This leads to an interminable period of the show for Sam where Mi Rim spends weeks mourning the loss of her relationship that consisted of, and this cannot be over-stressed, two whole dates. Tae Hwa, meanwhile, handles the breakup by stalking Mi Rim’s house in a vain attempt to run into her, instead of just going to the place he knows she works. During Tae Hwa’s next flight, Jenna decides to put her cat revenge plans into action by…having the cat hotel bathe the cat too much; simply diabolical. Taw Hwa is also grappling with the choice whether to accept a new, and better, job, but doing so would mean he’d have to leave Mi Rim, the woman he is not dating and who doesn’t want anything to do with him. Will Jenna’s evil cat revenge plan work? Will Tae Hwa and Mi Rim ever reconcile? How does a cat based version of The Parent Trap factor into all this? You’ll have to listen to find out, but one thing is clear: Sam in convinced everyone is this show is actually a serial killer.
