Coffee Prince Chapter 4: “What Happened in Room S11″
by | July 20, 2007 | 23 Comments
(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Soulstar – “입술” (Lips) [ zShare download ]  Question: Do people want the post titles to include the chapter title or not? If there are some spoilerphobes who don’t want to see them (who would prefer I keep the title under the “read more” cut), speak now or forever hold... More »

Coffee Prince Chapter 3: “Isn’t this a scammer’s set-up?”
by | July 20, 2007 | 16 Comments
(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Lee Soo Young – “혼자 짖는 미소” (Smiling to myself). Personally, I think Lee Soo Young’s voice is a bit of an acquired taste. But she seems like a cool person with an awesome(ly wicked) personality — just my kind of girl. And although she’s known for her somewhat epic,... More »

Novel Notes: Coffee Prince Chapter 2

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Monni (몽니) – Beautiful [ zShare download ]  I’m about a quarter of the way through the novel (100 pages) and we’re still on the events of the drama’s episode 1. I draw two conclusions from this: (1) It always takes a bit of time setting up a story, and... More »

Coffee Prince Lyrics: “White Love Story”
by | July 18, 2007 | 101 Comments
Lordy! Judging from yesterday’s traffic boost (14,000 hits. Fourteen thousand), I’m guessing people really, really like Coffee Prince. And why wouldn’t you? Yesterday’s episode was great. Here’s a lyrics post for the song used in the last scene of the episode (#6). SONG (Lyrics) OF THE DAY As One – “White Love Story” [ zShare... More »

Coffee Prince: Sixth Cup
by | July 17, 2007 | 124 Comments
Coffee Prince is (so far) proving to be better than I expected. Episode 6 was tons of fun, and starts getting a little more emotionally meaningful, but doesn’t get bogged down with too much seriousness. And the gender-bendy, pseudo-gay-homoerotic mindfuck really gets going! SONG OF THE DAY The Smiles – “Rainbow”… The Smiles is an... More »

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 »
