by | July 8, 2011 | 142 Comments
Finally! Here’s our first look at stills from the set of the highly anticipated romantic comedy film You’re My Pet, starring Jang Geun-seok and Kim Haneul, due out later this year. I thought they were never going to make this movie. Seriously, it’s been eons since the project was announced, then halted, then restarted, but... More »

You’ve Fallen For Me: Episode 4
by | July 7, 2011 | 193 Comments
I like it much better this week, now that we’ve gotten past the introductions and into the musical, with crushes, competition, and egos galore. It’s a familiar setup, but if you’re a fan of musicals like me, there’s no business like show business. Bring on the divas. Tags: featured, Jung Yong-hwa, Lee Hyun-jin, Park Shin-hye,... More »

City Hunter: Episode 13

I feel like this show stabs me and then bleeds me dry, every single episode. Is this what dating a vampire is like? Because the rush, the addiction… I know it’s bad for my health, but I can’t stop. Show, I know you’re just going to love me, then leave me, but why can’t I... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 12
by | July 5, 2011 | 153 Comments
He knows! It’s the death of the puppy and the rise of Dark Yoo-hyun, who is no less polite than before, but eerily icy beneath the surface. And let’s not count out Myung-hoon, who is quickly becoming Miri’s biggest opponent yet. Basically everyone serves Miri up a slice of humble pie, and it’s kind of... More »

You’ve Fallen For Me: Episode 2
by | June 30, 2011 | 180 Comments
What this drama lacks in slickness, it makes up for in sweetness. I’m sentimental about youth angst dramas, because they’re what I grew up on, but they also feel like a throwback because of that. They’re like drama comfort food, like Mom’s cooking. And while the tonal shifts in this one are still a bit... More »

This drama’s going to be the death of me. If my head doesn’t explode, my heart will first. The tension in this episode nearly put me six feet under from the stress of it all, but I fought to stay in the land of the living. Because otherwise, how will I find out what happens... More »

EPISODE 15 WEECAP Ah-jung gets the word that she’s fired and runs out of the party barefoot. Piggyback time! And then to drive the Cinderella motif in further, someone retrieves her shoes, and Ki-joon puts them on her feet tenderly as he literally makes the crack, “They’re not even glass.” He calls her a crybaby...
