Let’s Eat: Series Review
by | March 17, 2014 | 179 Comments
Cable network tvN’s fluffy foodie rom-com Let’s Eat* just wrapped this past week, so it seemed like a good time to weigh in on the series as a whole and hear everyone’s thoughts on the show. The 16-episode Thursday drama was one of the network’s recent experiments with one-episode-a-week scheduling, which did make it easy... More »

Kolorful Palette: Shades of blue [Three Days]
by | March 16, 2014 | 36 Comments
In case you can’t tell, this is Tae-kyung from Three Days leaning against a tree, after his narrow escape from Team Leader Ham’s clutches.

Kolorful Palette: Lead-up to love sickness [You From Another Star]
by | March 2, 2014 | 47 Comments
Sometimes the moment that leads up to a “big moment” is the one that resonates. I was tempted to draw the actual kiss for the sake of fan service [from Episode 19 of You From Another Star], but Song-yi’s confession felt more powerful and significant. This moment feels like a landmark for Song-yi’s growth as... More »

King’s Family: An overview
by | February 23, 2014 | 82 Comments
KBS’s six-month-long weekend juggernaut of a drama King’s Family (also called Wang Family) just wrapped up its 50-episode run a week ago, and for some inexplicable reason I watched the whole thing.
