Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 1
by | December 3, 2012 | 146 Comments
Whee! The first episode of Alice in Cheongdam-dong, all for my *hubby* Park Shi-hoo. I had no idea what to expect for this drama, since the synopses that have come out so far don’t really put it in a good light (a hardworking young woman giving up her ambitions just to marry rich?!). I’m hoping for more... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 11
by | November 30, 2012 | 86 Comments
Say goodbye to the hair! There’s nothing more important than saying adieu to the hairstyle that has turned off millions. It’s all anyone seems to talk about in the comments anyways, so hopefully the marked improvement on Man-ok’s hairstyle will lessen the hate. Oh – there’s plenty of cute moments too. But really – it’s all... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 9

Lee Joon becomes quite the jackass in this episode with all his flip-flopping – not like he wasn’t already. But we get a few more revelations about Tae-ik, and a little bit of cute. The cute moments between him and Man-ok are necessary, because a whole lotta drama is to come. Especially when our main... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 7

And so it begins! The cheese has begun, where our hero knows not what love or pounding hearts mean, and  our heroine feels she can save everything that belongs to her by simply lying for a short while. The dire circumstances revolving around Tae-ik’s reputation and sexuality force our bickering protagonists forge forth into a “land... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 5
by | November 9, 2012 | 59 Comments
New questions are raised in this episode despite the revelations we get concerning our beloved Take One boys. It’s surprising how much is packed into this episode considering we’re only at Episode 5, and while the fun continues, this storyline is getting a bit more serious than I had expected. SONG OF THE DAY “Love... More »

Time Between Dog and Wolf: A Review

It took me a while to get around to this drama, but I finally did. Yay – old drama checked off my list! I’m glad I watched it, because in a way I got to see how action dramas worked in 2007, and compared it to the more recent dramas of late (think IRIS, ATHENA,... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 3

I’m jumping ships with every (half-)episode! First I like Kang-hwi, then I like Tae-ik, then I like Kang-hwi, then I just throw everyone overboard and keep Man-ok for myself. The zany continues and the rivalry gets dangerous, but it looks like it’s a very good reason for the love triangle to even form. Tags: featured, Full... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 2

I think I’m starting to get serious second lead syndrome, and it doesn’t help that i have a serious Park Ki-woong bias. The craziness keeps going, but we are getting to the meat of the story now: how Man-ok becomes Take One’s stylist. Part 1 Tae-ik didn’t want Man-ok to reset his shoulder, but when... More »

Full House Take 2: Episode 1

This drama makes my head shake and my body shudder in laughter. It’s so bad it’s awesome. The format is a little different than usual dramas, being only 30 minutes long to air on Mondays through Thursdays, on cable channel SBS Plus. Episode 1 is split into Part 1 and Part 2, and aired on... More »

I Need Romance 2012: A Review
by | October 24, 2012 | 48 Comments
If you haven’t checked out this drama, which is a follow-up/sequel/spin-off to last year’s I Need Romance, then at least read the wonderful recap by gummimochi for episode 1, and then go watch the drama. I Need Romance 2012 is a delightful little gem that is a little more refreshing than the zany romantic comedies out there.... More »

Movie Review: Gabi (Coffee)
by | October 14, 2012 | 36 Comments
There is one thing that pulled me into watching this film, and that one thing delivered. In this quiet conspiracy thriller, Kim So Yeon battles her conscience as a spy who’s ordered to assassinate Emperor Gojong in the late 1890s. Also starring Joo Jin Mo and Yoo Sun, this film was certainly not what I expected in more ways... More »
