This Time it’s More Like Zen Annoyance

OMG you guys. So by now you’ve all heard my big server upgrade moan-and-groan story. Over the weekend, I upgraded from shared hosting (which was killing me with limiting my CPU restrictions, which build up very quickly when highly trafficked). I’d outgrown my little shared hosting plan and needed my own space. And now, thanks... More »

Coffee Prince: Tenth Cup
by | July 31, 2007 | 162 Comments
Oh holy frijoles this was a good episode. I’ve been careful (I think) to indicate that I’ve been enjoying Coffee Prince, but held off on a verdict… Given a history of disappointments, I kept expectations low in starting this series; I just hoped it would be light fun. As of today’s episode, I can say... More »

Coffee Prince Chapter 12: “Rebel with a Cause”

(Totally Random) SONG OF THE DAY Il Mare – “I’m Crying” sung by Ji Young Seon. This is a totally random post, since it’s actually from a movie soundtrack — Il Mare (aka Siwole) starring Jeon Ji Hyun and Lee Jung Jae. But it just fit my mood at the moment, I guess. [ zShare... More »

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Vanilla Unity – “Dreamer” [ zShare download ]  Once again, it’s interesting to see how the drama has taken elements so closely from the book, but has used them to such different effect and in such differing context. I think I like that effect; it makes some of the reading... More »

Coffee Prince: Ninth Cup

First things first. As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed the episode, and continue to enjoy the way they are progressing the relationship between Han Gyul and Eun Chan. But let me get this bit of criticism out of the way, and that is that this episode didn’t flow perfectly. There were a few awkward transitions, which... More »

Coffee Prince Unofficial Soundtrack

Hey guys, I know a few of you (jiangzemin and hua, and perhaps some others) were interested in compiling a full list of all the songs used in Coffee Prince that are not on the soundtrack. Thanks for providing the list from another site — I’ve put up the current song list up on this... More »

Coffee Prince Chapter 10: “Lemon Coffee for a Hangover”

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Donawhale – “Echo.” Moody, melodic, lovely indie-rockers. [ zShare download ]   I really liked this chapter… Not for a romantic reason (though that’s never bad), but because the conversation is, for the first time, a little more profound. It definitely shows where both Han Gyul and Eun Chan are... More »

Dramabeans, Now With More Zen Violence

Dare I say it? … dare I hope? … …that the site is now working? If you’ve dropped by anytime in the past two days, you’ll have noticed lots of weirdness. You may have noticed that I’d posted two posts that have since disappeared — they were both just there to let you know of... More »

Coffee Prince Chapter 9: “There’s No Vienna Coffee in Vienna”

Notice: Guys, I’ll be doing some server moving beginning today (hopefully that puts and end to all those error messages and woes!!). This site should remain just as you see it (I’m crossing my fingers that it’s seamless and unnoticeable) but I have been known to eff things up, so if something glitches, you know... More »

Coffee Prince Chapter 8: “Espresso…”

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Lee Minwoo (or M) – “AM 07:05″ [ zShare download ]   I find it so interesting how two separate entities can take the same (or very similar) scenes and circumstances and weave them into their stories, and have both versions flow nicely. There are a few familiar bits in... More »
