Coffee Prince Store #1: First Cup
by | July 2, 2007 | 145 Comments
Okay okay, so I’m totally behind on Air City (and Bad Couple, and soon to be Flowers For My Life…) but I promise I’ll get to it. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be following COFFEE PRINCE (and I’m wary of jumping into things purely based on hype), but come on, with a... More »

Egads, I’m running behind! This is why I was wary about watching a third show… If I were doing two, I’d only be one recap behind, but now I’m THREE! Add to that two new episodes of Flowers (today and tomorrow), and on top of that, I just realized Yoon Eun Hye‘s new drama Coffee... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 9
by | July 1, 2007 | 27 Comments
This episode was sad! It’s a complete turnaround from the first batch of episodes, where Dang Ja and Gi Chan’s story was the light-hearted, funny one, while Young’s was depressing and sad. Now Young’s starting to enjoy herself, and Dang Ja encounters trouble… (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Byul – “내 남자의 여자친구” (my boyfriend’s... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 14
by | June 30, 2007 | 23 Comments
I hope the delay for this summary doesn’t suggest that this episode wasn’t good. Flowers For My Life is a wonderful drama and it’s going straight to the (almost-)top of my all-time favorites. You know, I’ve seen a lot of dramas in marathon sessions after all the episodes have already aired, and when you watch... More »

Moving in

I’ve moved! Please update bookmarks and feeds and all that good stuff. The javabeans.wordpress.com site will stay up indefinitely, but I’ll be updating here instead. I’d been thinking of upgrading to my own host for a while now, but I’m lazy. I should’ve done it earlier — it’s a pain moving once you’re settled in.... More »

Half a Million and Counting

Woot woot! I marked my 100,000th hit (well, I was lazy so it got pushed to 150,000) with some House Rulez. Speaking of whom, have you checked them out yet? They’re awesome. I still have them on heavy daily rotation. Now this blog has seen 500,000 hits (I can’t even really wrap my head around... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 10
by | June 15, 2007 | 43 Comments
Ah, Flowers For My Life, you keeeeel me. So many great moments in this episode, and the ending sequence was wonderful. I’ve said this many times before, how I don’t care about ratings, but this is utter travesty. The last episode garnered ratings of 3.3%, and that’s just wrong. It’s criminal. How can utter pedestrian... More »

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 »
