Korean Dramas & Family Relations
by | June 14, 2007 | 40 Comments
Lately, I’ve noticed something about the dramas I’ve been watching, which is that I’ve been finding — more so than the big dramatic romantic turns — that the most affecting, moving moments are family-related. There’s just something that Korean dramas do that captures family elements so well. They don’t try to make you cry with... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 9
by | June 13, 2007 | 27 Comments
Some people may think that being disappointed in a series that they’ve been eagerly anticipating (Witch Amusement, Air City) is because their expectations were too high. That they should lower their own expectations in order to enjoy the drama, as though somehow blaming themselves for a disappointing drama rather than the production team who’s created... More »

Air City: Episode 6
by | June 4, 2007 | 14 Comments
Um, yeah, so my complaint with Episode 5 still stands in Episode 6, although 6 was a little better than 5. I think my explanation of the issue was a little confusing, but here’s a simple way to put it (I hope): Air City is cutting up its episodes into weird chunks, ending storylines in... More »

Air City: Episode 5
by | June 2, 2007 | 19 Comments
I have a huge complaint with Episode 5. It’s not that it’s a bad episode, or badly made, or badly acted — on the contrary. In fact, it would be a minor complaint if the fix weren’t so simple and obvious. With exactly the same music, and acting, and footage, they could have carved out... More »

Behind the K-Drama Scenes
by | May 11, 2007 | 18 Comments
So I was thinking about the ending of Witch Amusement, and of how much more I enjoyed the director’s prior two series, 2005’s Delightful Girl Choon Hyang and 2006’s My Girl. And since both of those were written by the Hong sisters screenwriting team, Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran, I naturally thought to... More »

Witch Amusement: Episode 16 (Final)
by | May 11, 2007 | 113 Comments
Ahh, Witch Amusement. How you’ve amused me so. Despite your repeated shenanigans (or maybe because of them), I’ve enjoyed watching you, all 16 episodes. You gave me so much to laugh about (and more to laugh AT, but who’s differentiating? Po-tay-to, po-tah-to.). And now, we say adieu. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY K.Will – “You”... More »
