Kolorful Palette: Cursing in the streets [High School King of Savvy]
by | July 13, 2014 | 19 Comments
It’s official; that overwhelming sensation of having too many compelling dramas to watch has finally returned. I’m pretty sure that’s a good thing, although my pasty white skin probably thinks I need to spend a little more time outside. High School Kind of Savvy is hardly reinventing the wheel, but it does what it does... More »

Kolorful Palette: Loving Trot Lovers
by | July 6, 2014 | 24 Comments
Overall, I’ve been disappointed with a lot of 2014’s dramas, so I was pleasantly surprised to be so pleasantly surprised by Trot Lovers. It had all the makings of a potentially good drama to begin with, but I think I’ve become a bit of a skeptic over the years, so I’m always a bit wary... More »

Kolorful Palette: Gunnin’ for Gunman [Joseon Gunman]
by | June 22, 2014 | 16 Comments
This drama may not have technically aired yet, so I feel a little bit guilty drawing it (as if I’ve broken some unwritten rule) but I really couldn’t help myself. I have to take next week off, and when I realized that I was missing Joseon Gunman premiere week I was utterly dismayed. I’ve been... More »

Kolorful Palette: Things I miss [Tree With Deep Roots]
by | June 15, 2014 | 31 Comments
My excitement for upcoming drama Joseon Gunman made me realize that I miss having a sageuk in my life, so I decided to draw one of my favorites from the last few years. I originally only planned on watching the first few episodes to check out Song Joong-ki’s acting (which is fantastic) and never anticipated... More »

Kolorful Palette: Family ties [Golden Cross]
by | June 8, 2014 | 8 Comments
I’m finally caught up on Golden Cross (until episode 15 anyways) and I have to say, this is probably the least revenge-y revenge drama I’ve seen. I consider that a good thing though, since I tend to find that the super revenge-focused protagonists end up more despicable than sympathetic. Revenge never ends well either and... More »

Kolorful Palette: Simulation or stimulation? [Doctor Stranger]
by | June 1, 2014 | 62 Comments
This week I chose to draw the most nonsensical and non-educational medical training session of all time, primarily because I love these two together (it must be a good scene, because I noticed that HeadsNo2 used the same shot for her recap). It’s actually a pretty big deal that I like this pairing so much... More »

Kolorful Palette: Hostage hearts [You’re All Surrounded]
by | May 25, 2014 | 38 Comments
About a month ago I was really excited for all the new dramas that were starting, but now I’m feeling more overwhelmed than anything since I’m having a hard time deciding which dramas to stick with. None of them swept me off my feet in their first week, but I feel like they all have... More »

Kolorful Palette: Budapest cruise [Dr. Stranger]
by | May 18, 2014 | 33 Comments
Like a lot of people, I’m not that interested in medical dramas, but I am a fan of Lee Jong-seok, and he hasn’t disappointed. It’s hard not to be a fan when he seems to so effortlessly take a drama chock-full of ridiculousness and turn it into something compelling. I’m actually happy this drama is... More »
