Full House Take 2: Episode 1
by | October 27, 2012 | 170 Comments
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 | 37 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 »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 1, 2012 | 41 Comments
THE END IS HERE! It’s a pretty awesome ending for this lighthearted drama, as I can’t count how many times I’ve giggled at all the cute moments, just wishing I had a Tae Sung-oppa to call my own and save me when I’m in trouble! It started off sweet, and I’m glad it ends sweetly too.... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 15
by | September 28, 2012 | 23 Comments
This drama is about to end, but it’s not letting up on the drama! We get to see Tae Sung be all prosecutor-y, which is sort of like the first time ever in this series. Even though he was one, he acted like a detective, a prosecutor who only gets yelled at by the boss,... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 14
by | September 27, 2012 | 18 Comments
Haeundae Lovers gave us a woozy this week with three episodes in one week. Guess they’re pressed for time. Episodes 14 and 15 aired on Monday, while episode 16 aired on Tuesday. This was an emotional episode that just emphasizes my love of Kim Kang Woo and his portrayal of Tae Sung. It’s incredibly sad but... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 13

For a very melodramatic episode, I didn’t feel too bogged down with emotions. Thank you, writer, for keeping this drama light. With three episodes left, there needs to be a few obstacles to be thrown our heroes’ paths – one of them is facing their true feelings and morals.... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 12

Best episode by far! I finally went through all the emotions that usually occurs within a Korean drama in one episode. I felt that this episode hit me in all the right places – it was heartwarming and funny, ridiculously over the top and maddening, and then just when I got that hopeful feeling everything... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 11

For as much as I was annoyed with Joon Hyuk last week, he certainly has become less pathetic with this episode. I still have conflicting emotions about him, but I cannot deny that this man is smart and resourceful. At least, smarter and more resourceful than all the other characters here. There is only one...

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 10

Cute episode! Why? Because finally our leads are being sweet with one another! I’m glad that Sora is getting over her prejudices towards Tae Sung, which always felt unfair and contrived. Tae Sung was nothing but kind to her, and he had amnesia! He never knew his real family, and no one can pick their family!... More »
