Thousand Day Promise: Episode 15
by | December 5, 2011 | 58 Comments
A mostly contemplative episode, as the dust settles in each household. A cameo from another member of the Kim Soo-hyun family brings Song Chang-eui by, and it looks like he’ll stick around for a little while, which is awesome considering he’s pretty much the funniest thing about this episode. I can’t say anything good about... More »

Okay, my interest in this drama just shot straight up. I mean, I know, the singing and dancing is the reason to watch, but the best things about the original Dream High were the runaway comedic performances by the teachers. And now, my favorite ajusshi star of late, Kim Jung-tae (Can’t Lose, Girl K) has... More »

Vampire Prosecutor: Episode 9
by | November 27, 2011 | 53 Comments
I love this episode. So much. It’s mobsters and mayhem, full of twists, awesome thug nicknames, and good ol’ fashioned backstabbing and blackmail. Jung-in’s past finally catches up to her, and the outcome is more fun and more gripping than I expected. Tags: cable programs, featured, Lee Won-jong, Lee Young-ah, Vampire Prosecutor, Yeon Jung-hoon... More »
