Who Are You: Episode 15
by | April 24, 2008 | 45 Comments
(I just love the look on Yoon Kye Sang’s face here.) This episode was chock-full of moving moments as things start wrapping up (or readying for the final wrap-up). I’m a little nervous that the extension could mess with the pacing of the finale, but I think the producers must have had decent notice, so... More »

Who Are You: Episode 14
by | April 23, 2008 | 54 Comments
As much as I like the romantic moments between Seung Hyo and Young In (and the gradual, measured way that’s progressed), my favorite moments are becoming more and more the scenes between Seung Hyo and Il Gun.

by | April 22, 2008 | 21 Comments
Tim, the man with the smooth velvety singing voice, is taking to the stage — as an actor. Perhaps in keeping with his well-known strong Christian faith, his role is in the musical Jesus Jesus (which, as far as I know, is not the same as Jesus Christ Superstar), and he takes on the titular...

Who Are You? extended by one episode
by | April 22, 2008 | 16 Comments
Okay, NOW I can relax — Who Are You‘s one-episode extension is officially confirmed. I’d been expecting this, but didn’t want to jump the gun — usually when a drama goes off-schedule due to some kind of programming issue (in this case, election coverage), the station does something to even out the broadcasts, whether by...

The Last Scandal of My Life: Episodes 1-4
by | April 21, 2008 | 67 Comments
The Last Scandal of My Life is SUPER FUN. It’s too bad I came upon this delightful series so late (it’s aired 14 episodes of its 16), but on the bright side, I have lots of episodes to catch up on without having to wait. Since I haven’t caught up yet, please do me the... More »

Yoon Kye Sang: Thinking deep thoughts, or trying not to trip?
by | April 20, 2008 | 36 Comments
I know, I know. There’s a lot of Yoon Kye Sang on this blog right about now. But contrary to appearances, it’s not that I’m obsessing over him or anything (for reals, yo!). It’s just that he’s in the press a lot these days. His drama, his movies, it’s all a part of the publicity... More »
