City Hunter: Episode 19
by | July 27, 2011 | 759 Comments
Not like you didn’t own me before, Show, but this finale-lead-in? Kicks so much ass. I honestly didn’t think City Hunter was going to go out as strong as it came in, but I’m happy to be wrong. So giddy. I knew my love was not for naught. Tags: City Hunter, featured, Lee Jun-hyuk, Lee... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 6
by | July 26, 2011 | 181 Comments
So Myung-wol finally feels feelings… which make her run away… which makes Kang-woo give chase… which makes Ryu jealous… which makes me one happy camper. I love that the only time something as classic as playing hard-to-get works for Myung-wol is when she isn’t TRYING to play the game. Also if Kang-woo were any cuter,... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 5

Hee! How much do I love that so much subtext — and even some of the text — of this entire episode is sex? It’s treated with utter seriousness, which just makes it even gigglier for me, watching these grown people trying to strategize and maneuver this relationship in military/strategic terms. What a crackup. SONG... More »

Scent of a Woman: Episode 2

Victory! Who knew a terminal illness could be so freeing? Never thought I’d say those words, but as it turns out, sometimes finding out that you’re going to die is just the thing you need to start living.

Scent of a Woman: Episode 1

New drama! Scent of a Woman premiered this weekend, and GAH! if this drama isn’t gorgeous — the reunion of the Dr. Champ team includes, thankfully, its awesome camera, which gives the show a lush, movie-like appearance with dark contrasts and lovely, rich colors. It doesn’t hurt that they’re working with a beautiful cast, but... More »

You’ve Fallen For Me: Episode 7
by | July 22, 2011 | 166 Comments
Hello everyone! It’s me again, kaedejun. Girlfriday and Javabeans were sufficiently warned to keep their hands off of Kang Min Hyuk, even though we’re all cougars to that cute little drummer boy. I hope you’re all not too disappointed! This will be the recap for the week for this series, as episode 8 did not... More »

City Hunter: Episode 18

Woo, final stretch ahead! Yoon-sung says it in this episode, and as I viewer I can feel it: The end is in sight. The romance is a little less prevalent, but for the best possible reason, which is a return of our crusading hero and his action-packed missions to take down baddies. Phew. For some... More »

City Hunter: Episode 17

This show? It’s like Shakespeare on acid. Or watching Confucius kick Shakespeare’s ass. Or if Confucius and Shakespeare had a lovechild, it’d be City Hunter. Is anyone else’s head hurty with the daddy issues? Somebody please give this boy a hug. I’m scared for what’s around the corner. Tags: City Hunter, featured, Lee Jun-hyuk, Lee... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 16 (Final)
by | July 19, 2011 | 119 Comments
Last episode! I wasn’t sure whether Miss Ripley would wrap up in a surge of melodrama or in unearned happy endings, but it delivers a dose of peace and resolution, with a smattering of bittersweetness. It’s somewhat satisfying, though a little pat for my tastes, but most importantly it gives each of our characters an... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 4
by | July 19, 2011 | 137 Comments
Such a fun, quirky series that mixes spy farce with rom-com elements. It has some lighthearted silly moments, treasure-hunting spy moments, but also characters with interesting mysterious layers. And the funny pretty much kills me. Tags: Eric, featured, Han Ye-seul, Jang Hee-jin, Lee Jin-wook, Myung-wol the Spy... More »
