Flowers For My Life: Episode 13

What a great episode. I cried practically all the way through it, but it was a good cry. The satisfying kind. So many great conversations, and lots of great acting. And, as always, gorgeous cinematography. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Rumble Fish – “Smile Again.” [ zShare download ]... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 8

What a great episode. Funny but emotional, and lots of satisfying moments. Despite the tinge of sadness, it didn’t overshadow the story and didn’t drag the mood down into depressing. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Wheesung – “Goodbye Luv” [ zShare download ]... More »

Air City: Episode 11

Yaaaaaaawn. Oh wait, is this mic on? *Tap tap* Ahem. I decided to try, purely as a writing exercise, posting up an Air City summary that was (gasp!) completely devoid of negative comments. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I could do it, and having seen Episode 11, I think I picked a tough one to... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 7
by | June 24, 2007 | 19 Comments
Although we’re presented with Gi Chan’s “fiancee” — the woman long-designated to marry Gi Chan by both sets of parents since they were young — Episode 7 is really not much about her, which I appreciate because I like that Bad Couple has thus far strayed away from cliched love triangles. (Random) SONG OF THE... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 12

Thankfully, things lightened up a bit this week! As much as I’m enjoying Flowers For My Life, last week was starting to bum me out because it was starting to get sad. At least we have a lot of sweet moments between Ho Sang and Hana here, and I think I’ve figured out a way... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 11

^^ The flowers Ran puts in her hair. Oh, and this episode tells me her name is actually Lan, not Ran (the Korean letter used doubles for both “l” and “r” and I don’t know Vietnamese to have guessed Lan). But I’ll stick to Ran for now to stay consistent. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY... More »

Air City: Episode 10

If I hadn’t committed to recapping this series, I’d have jumped off the train and stopped watching, if not by Episode 6, then definitely this weekend. I still love Lee Jung Jae to bits, and find his acting is still top-notch in a sea of mere adequacy, but it’s not like I can’t appreciate his... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 6

Wait, did I say Gi Chan was unbelievably sweet in Episode 5? And that women ought to beware? Yeah, well the Gi Chan infatuation sickness is sure to get worse in Episode 6. What I enjoy about Bad Couple are all the surprising little goofball moments that catch me off-guard. I’d say I’m pretty drama-savvy,... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 5

Oh my, Episode 5 of Bad Couple is so redonkulously cute. It’s a hazard to the health of fun-loving romantic souls everywhere. I haven’t recapped the entire episode, but highlighted some of the absurdly sweet moments between our favorite pair, Dang Ja and Gi Chan. And really, that’s all you need from this episode anyway!...

Air City: Episode 9
by | June 17, 2007 | 20 Comments
As an episode on its own, Episode 9 wasn’t bad. It was cute, and there were fun moments between the characters. As a part of the series as a whole, however, I find it odd and out of place. I just don’t know what they’re going for anymore with the overall series. Is it a... More »
