Secret Garden: Episode 1
by | November 13, 2010 | 185 Comments
I’d been wary of getting excited about Secret Garden, because it’s so easy for hyped dramas to let you down, even when you love the cast. So it was with relief that I found the first episode light and funny, with a bustling pace and solid comic acting from the cast. In addition to A-list... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 13
by | November 12, 2010 | 56 Comments
WHEE! And we all know why. It’s because Kaedejun finally got her long lasting wish of getting to recap a Kim So Yeon-kiss. Yes. She can now die happy. But before that, we want to know how the showdown goes! Tags: Cha Ye-ryun, Dr. Champ, featured, Jung Kyeo-woon, Kim So-yeon, Uhm Tae-woong... More »

Dear Jal-geum Quartet, Thank you for the memories, the tears, the laughs, the squeals, the giggles, the sighs, the cringes, the waff, the thump-thumps, the insomnia, the dreams, the fantasies, the discussions, the love, the shipping, the great times, the smiles, the late nights, the early mornings, the procrastination, the cheers, the oh-nos, the arguments,...

Joseon X-Files: Episode 9
by | November 11, 2010 | 20 Comments
This episode starts out seeming more disconnected from the others, making me think at first that it was a filler-type episode — but trust this drama to find a way to tie it to the secrets of the bigger picture as well. I’ll never doubt you again, Joseon X-Files! This was also a pretty funny... More »

Hold onto your wide-brimmed hats, people. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover, and this train ain’t slowin’ down for no one. In this penultimate episode, Yong-ha gets outed, Jae-shin gets locked up, Sun-joon gets roasted as the sacrificial lamb, and Yoon-hee gets found out…FINALLY. Looks like we’re headed into the finale with eyes... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 2
by | November 9, 2010 | 211 Comments
Is it strange that despite the fact that I find the premise beyond ridiculous, all I want is to watch Jang Geun-seok and Kim Jae-wook fight over Mary like a couple of petty dogs? It’s a sickness, I know. But I can’t get the image out of my mind, and now I can’t let it... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 12

Smiling Kyu has returned bright eyed and bushy tailed this episode, so get ready to swoon. I’ll apologise now for my overuse of the word ‘adorable’ in this recap, but I think that basically sums it up. Except for the two murder investigations, of course. And the corpse. And the government corruption. But who pays... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 1
by | November 8, 2010 | 165 Comments
KBS premiered its new Monday-Tuesday drama today, Mary Stayed Out All Night, which I thought started out fluffy-silly with a basic premise that’s pretty ho-hum familiar, but which got progressively better as the hour went on. The series started off with a tentative 8.5% rating (not bad, not great), though the public’s response seems generally... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 11
by | November 8, 2010 | 18 Comments
This episode the dynamics change and bring some new possibilities: a couple of murders throw a spanner in the works, a certain foreigner’s entire destiny changes, a young girl is made over (to the delight of her love interest) and a meddling mother wishes she’d had the sex talk sooner. Tags: featured, Hwang Chan-bin, Im... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 12
by | November 7, 2010 | 49 Comments
There, there, darling. Drama, we need to take some time to think. I’ve never been a particular fan of this tactic, taking it as a subjacent “I want to break up, but don’t have the courage to”. This time, I’ll remain optimistic. Don’t ask me why; not even I understand that. Despite seeming gratuitously sadistic... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 11

OH the emotional angst! Well, all I can assure is that Ji Heon does not jump off the ledge. (Was I the only one who was afraid of that happening to some degree?) However, he does jump off a cliff and tumbles down into an emotional black hole. Poor guy. Sorry aberdeen_angus, I can’t fix... More »
