Hanbando / Korean Peninsula: Series review
by | April 15, 2012 | 28 Comments
Here’s the short version of the review, in case you don’t want to read it: This drama is a disappointment for its ambitious plot. To be more specific and fair, it was a disappointment to me. Hanbando had its ups and downs, with definitely more downs than ups. So why am I reviewing this? Because I actually stuck... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 6
by | April 8, 2012 | 20 Comments
This episode is part one of a two-parter case, titled “Part 1: The Kidnapping of Min Chae Won.” I think this episode just sets us up for the twisted-ness that comes in part 2, mainly because we have a standard kidnapping, and our team is simply unable to track down where the kid is. Part... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 5

This is one sad case. Episode 5 is titled “The Forest Chaser,” but I think the episode could also have been called “The Good Samaritan.” This episode had a few more twists – one more heart wrenching than the last.... More »

Welcome to episode 4 of Ten! Titled “The Queen,” we learn a little more about Ji Hoon, see another side of Ye Ri, and finally meet a victim who is more scary than the killer. Jealousy and fear can bring out the worst in us.... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 3

Time for some love for Do Shik! And Min Ho’s cute glare. The title of this episode is “Mimosa,” in reference to a plant (not the drink) that shrinks when touched. It’s known to be a shy plant, and its nature is allegorical to the case and the suspect in question. Song of the Day... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 2

Without a two-hour running time, this episode went by much more quickly and had less twists and turns. Oh my happy head – it wasn’t spinning! But we get a little more insight into Ji Hoon’s character, and hints to his past. He might be cold, but he’s so lovable as a hero.... More »

And we continue on with Part 2! The more twists that occurred just solidified my excitement for this drama. Granted it aired in late 2011, but hey, better late than never!... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 1 (Part 1)

Warning: this drama is not for the faint of heart. It is graphic, twisted, sleek, dark, sultry, and it is amazing. I have never seen such fine acting from Joo Sang Wook, who is as twisted as his suspects. The first episode is over 2 hours long, working like a standalone movie, and is supposedly based... More »

Twelve Men in a Year: Episode 1

This drama gives me I Need Romance vibes. I liked I Need Romance, so I guess that’s a good thing for this series huh? It’s surprising to me that this series isn’t getting as much attention as I expected it would. It’s an enjoyable drama, and one that promises plenty of eye candy in the future.... More »

Hanbando / Korean Peninsula: Episodes 1-2
by | February 11, 2012 | 36 Comments
Rather than a recap, this is more of a first impressions/summary of the first two episodes. In fact, the first two episodes were short enough that I don’t think it merits a full recap. If you’re a fan of IRIS and ATHENA, you might enjoy this one. If you love Hwang Jung Min, you’re probably... More »
