I Am Legend: Episode 3
by | August 13, 2010 | 56 Comments
Hello! C’est moi, kaedejun, here to take over recapping duties on I am Legend! Hope you’re all not too disappointed. Here’s where I stand on the series so far: loving Kim Jung Eun, hating Kim Seung Soo, “meh” on the name “Madonna Band” and Lee Joon Hyuk’s beard-stache, and going ga-ga over Lee Joon Hyuk’s...

Show, you complete me.   EPISODE 2 RECAP After revealing herself in her gumiho form, Mi-ho takes back her healing fox bead and Dae-woong slumps to the ground. She floats above him,... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 1
by | August 11, 2010 | 138 Comments
Annnnnd we have a winner! What a cute first episode to start off what looks to become an entertaining, zippy ride. Both leads are adorable, but more than that, the story is fresh and innovative. It takes some familiar elements and mixes them with creations that are pure Hong Sisters Originals. (If you’re coming to... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 17 (Final)
by | August 10, 2010 | 341 Comments
Here we are, the finale! I thought it was better than Episode 16, but frankly that isn’t saying much. At least 16 was entertaining and off-the-wall. This episode, as the wrap-up, was more puzzling. I know there was a three-episode cut-down and all that scheduling madness. HOWEVER, the drama finished filming two weeks before the... More »

Goddamn it. Santa Claus totally stole my thunder! Go back to the North Pole, there’s no Christmas in August! Well, not unless you’re Selfridges, at least. But we’re not having that here. SONG OF THE DAY MC Mong – “죽을 만큼 아파서” (It hurts to death) [ Download ] Tags: Bad Guy, Han Ga-in, Kim... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 15

Greetings from the North Pole! The girls called me up for a guest spot, so I gladly obliged, because they’ve both been really good this year. Also my reindeer are suing me, and they offered me some legal advice in exchange. I swear I really only ever used “mush” when we were in a big... More »

I Am Legend: Episodes 1-2
by | August 4, 2010 | 64 Comments
I Am Legend kicked off this week to a fairly good start, both in story and in reception. The first episode had a decent 10.1% rating, which the second episode improved upon it with an 11.7%. I’d been interested in the premise from the start, back when it starred Kim Sun-ah, and was game for... More »

Coffee House: Page 18 (Final)

I enjoyed this finale. Finale episodes are tricky things. You have to wrap up the story, but not in such a rushed way that it feels crammed, like the drama ran out of time. We as the audience usually need some time to come down from the emotional climax, and a drama that cuts off... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 13

These two should have their own show. They could have conversations about nothing and it would be funny. I’d watch that, seriously. Thirteen episodes in and I’m still marveling at the gorgeous look of this drama. There’s no doubt that the director puts as much care into the look of the show as he does... More »
