Bad Couple: Episode 14
by | July 17, 2007 | 25 Comments
Ryu Su Young (Gi Chan) is really good this episode. Really good. Nobody does heartfelt cornball adoration as believably and adorably as him. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Biuret – “사랑해요” (I Love You). I really like the chorus and its intense overlapping harmonies from this song by all-female rock band Biuret. [ zShare download... More »

Coffee Prince: Fifth Cup
by | July 16, 2007 | 58 Comments
What I like about Coffee Prince is that it’s good-natured and feel-good. The male-bonding scenes are fun and energetic, and despite not having some evil force lurking in the shadows, we have plenty of entertainment. Then again, we’re only five episodes in, so who knows what may change. I’ve noticed a lot of shows start... More »

Air City: Episode 16 (Final)
by | July 15, 2007 | 31 Comments
Wow. Everything I say in this post will probably be surprising, because the finale of Air City — which took me this long to finally see, due to general lack of interest — in an unexpected turn, didn’t completely suck. Actually, it’s the first episode I liked since Episode 5. Nobody is more surprised than... More »

Series Preview: Oh Su Jung

You’ve probably heard about Oh Ji Ho‘s new drama — or at least the part where he puts on a fat suit to give us the drama version of the hit movie 200 Pound Beauty. It’s also being called his comeback drama (although come on, can you call it a comeback when his last drama... More »

Notes on Coffee Prince, the Novel
by | July 13, 2007 | 50 Comments
(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Brown Eyes – “이 노래” (This song) [ zShare download ]  I picked up the novel Coffee Prince Store #1 a few days ago and started reading. (Yes, it is only available in Korean, as far as I know.) I don’t usually read novels in Korean, but figured this would... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 12

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Kim Dong Wan – “My Love” featuring Eric (and written by Minwoo, I believe?). I mentioned previously that I wasn’t that impressed with Kim Dong Wan’s solo album. There were a few tracks I thought were all right, like this one, which doesn’t take itself too seriously, which is my... More »

Coffee Prince: Fourth Cup

Male bonding is too cute. (Now if they could just get rid of that manipulative Yu Ju… I don’t think she adds much.) Btw, I know Coffee Prince is based on a novel, and I was curious to see how the drama and novel differ, so I picked up a copy of the book today.... More »

Coffee Prince: Third Cup

SONG OF THE DAY Apls – “Very Special Girl” Pronounced “apples,” the album is called “Sexualmetro,” which keeps making me wonder if it’s an erroneous (or purposeful) misuse of the word “metrosexual.” Either way, it’s appropriate enough, I thought.

Air City: Episodes 14 & 15
by | July 8, 2007 | 13 Comments
Oh man. You don’t even know how many times I was going to quit recaps on Air City. I’d firmly decided to finish what I started, so I had no intention of quitting… and every time I tried to get through Episode 14, I was THISCLOSE to giving up. It wasn’t necessarily awful. I was... More »

Bad Couple: He Said, She Said
by | July 8, 2007 | 33 Comments
While I’m waiting for the latest episode to upload, I figured I’d knock off a quick song-lyric post. They’re the lyrics from the “Gi Chan said”/”Dang Ja said” songs that feature prominently in Bad Couple, since they seem particularly meaningful in context. Tags: Bad Couple, song lyrics... More »
