Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 9
by | January 7, 2013 | 86 Comments
Oh the wait has been much too long! And this episode jumps right back into the swing of things, keeping up a zippy pace as if we didn’t have one week off. I’m grateful for it, since it’s about time for certain revelations to come to a head and for Se-kyung to make more definitive... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 8

The drop into hell is just as bad as I thought – if not worse. The truth really changes people, and while you’d hope it’s for the better, in this instance it changes people for the worse. We’ve seen Se-kyung grow into a stronger person who will do whatever it takes to achieve her dream.... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 7

This episode in particular was a little more somber as we watch Se-kyung at a crossroads – should she continue to love a man she thinks isn’t wealthy, or should she abandon him and focus on her goal? Whichever she chooses, this series is better whenever comedy comes into play. I don’t mind if this... More »

How do I describe this episode: it’s 50% cute, 40% Park Shi-hoo, and 10% sweet. And that adds up to… 100% of full crazy fun that makes my heart lift with giddiness. I never thought we’d get this kind of episode from the way this drama started off, but I’m thankful for it. Ya hear... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 5

This world is so rich with story, and yet so small. I should not be surprised that everyone is intertwined as it is a Korean drama, but everyone in this world is believably connected for good reason. It’s just, in a small world, no secrets can be kept for long. Tags: Alice in Cheongdam-dong, featured,... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 15

We’re in the home stretch! That means a lot of loose ends are being tied up very quickly, which is both a good and a bad thing. Good because finally we’re over that Misunderstanding Hump Week. Bad because, well, rushing things is never a good thing, yunno? SONG OF THE DAY “Hello Hello” by Take Two... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 4

Our obligatory makeover episode! More revelations to be made, but what I’m most thankful for is that despite Se-kyung’s 180-degree reversal in her perspective towards life, she still cannot get over her own values. That’s the only thing slowing her down in her journey through the depths of hell  rabbit hole. Tags: Alice in Cheongdam-dong,... More »

Life Lessons from a Mixed Bag of Dramas [Year In Review, Part 2]
by | December 11, 2012 | 148 Comments
2012 was certainly a mixed bag: I saw plenty of action dramas and then I saw fluffy dramas that made no sense. There were dramas I loved, dramas that I liked enough, and then dramas that I hated. It was a tough year for me, and I felt I had bad luck in choosing which... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 3

For a drama that’s incredibly bleak and melodramatic in its portrayal of poverty, there are plenty of golden moments in this episode – all thanks to Seung-jo. If this drama is supposed to be a comedy, it’s all because of him. The beloved In-chan oppa ends his cameo with this episode, and while many are... More »

It’s time for classic misunderstandings to come about. We’re heading back to melodrama territory again, which isn’t this drama’s strength. However this time we get to see more of Kang-hwi’s sad childhood and the romance heat up – both plot points that I feel the drama does well, at least. SONG OF THE DAY “Hello... More »

We are given a few more details in this episode as the Revenge Merry-Go-Round takes off! A little more insight into Se-kyung’s motivations, and a little more insight into the world we’re plunging into. It’s a strange feeling to be watching a drama that’s so aware the shallow-ness of Cheongdam-dong and so serious about it.... More »
