I’m pretty sure I know what happens in this episode. I’ll get to it as soon as I stop staring at the pretty… I’m probably gonna need a minute… In this episode, Tae-yeon faces his biggest opponent yet: not a hooded figure in a dark alley, but a well-dressed woman in a courtroom. It’s Lawyer... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 18 (Final)
by | October 20, 2011 | 48 Comments
What a heartwarming, funny, adorable finale for a heartwarming, funny, adorable series. You know what I love about this show? It’s just simple, steadfast, and best of all, it’s earnest. No fancy tricks, not even many surprises. But I walk away from it feeling like every character was worth meeting, and that love – real,... More »

Yoo Ah-in in fall/winter fashion for Bazaar
by | October 20, 2011 | 56 Comments
I rather like the way Yoo Ah-in cleans up. He still retains enough of his badboy streak to stay left of center, and remain intriguing. Or perhaps I’m just helpless at the sight of his pouty lips. His new film Wandeuki opens today, and if the trailer is any indication, it looks funny, heartwarming, and... More »

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 2
by | October 18, 2011 | 72 Comments
I didn’t love the first episode, but I did love the second. The first rattled me, because it began so unconventionally, in medias res (and not the kind where you get the quick 48 hours earlier orientation either). But this episode takes a step back, not in time, but in breathing room. I feel like... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 16
by | October 13, 2011 | 36 Comments
What’s better than romance? Why, bromance of course. In the best episode yet, we get the height of both funny and sad, all in one go. The rivalry heats up, an unexpected friendship emerges, and it comes time for Eun-jae to face some harsh consequences for the choices she’s made. There’s only one word for... More »
