Dr. Champ: Episode 16 (Final)
by | November 21, 2010 | 81 Comments
What?! I loved this moment! Oh… The most beautiful (visually speaking – yes, I loved screencapping this one) drama of the year is about to end, and I’m as happy as a k-drama watcher can be, with a most satisfying ending after weeks of obsessing over such beloved characters. I’d like to thank you avid... More »

Secret Garden: Episode 3

SBS has had a number of dramas with truly beautiful cinematography in the past year — Bad Guy, Dr. Champ, Will It Snow For Christmas, Jejoongwon — and now we can add Secret Garden to that list. I’m really enjoying this drama based on story and acting alone — and Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won’s... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 15

The picture above isn’t really a spoiler right? I mean, come on – they already kissed. I think it’s safe to say that I’m going to be sad about this drama ending. I truly enjoyed recapping this drama; I think “underdog” dramas are my thing… Once again, thanks very much to javabeans and girlfriday for... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 14
by | November 18, 2010 | 16 Comments
And if we thought last episode was enough angst for us, it seems it isn’t. As Tamra speeds towards the (imposed) finale, there is a lot of ground (and emotions) to cover. Luckily, however, the necessary plot developments aren’t getting in the way of two of this show’s biggest strengths: character and relationships. The characters... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 13

Hello angst. From the opening argument to the final tear, there is a lot of tension (and plot development) in episode 13. After our lovely reprieve in the previous episode, things for our characters are getting kind of awful. But Tamra does angst so amazingly well that I still love this episode. Tags: featured, Hwang...

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 4
by | November 16, 2010 | 302 Comments
Well, you were warned. Second lead ‘shippers, guard your hearts. Jung-in goes for the kill, and I don’t know about Mary, but everyone else gets slain. See, this is what happens when you marry two men. It gets confusing, for everyone involved. Including me. Couldn’t you have just gotten a job or gone into hiding?... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 3

More cuteness abounds. Honestly, this drama can feel rather average whenever the scenes don’t involve both main characters, so I can see why it’s struggling to gain ground in the ratings (today’s episode had a 9%). But whenever Jang Geun-seok and Moon Geun-young are together, they just crackle with adorable chemistry. SONG OF THE DAY... More »

Secret Garden: Episode 2
by | November 15, 2010 | 231 Comments
I’m really digging the vibe of this show, which is a total surprise, given that it was promoted in such an ambiguous way, claiming to be of seventeen different genres. But I pretty much love the characters from the get-go, because they’re a breath of fresh air in the k-drama landscape. I especially love that... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 14
by | November 14, 2010 | 63 Comments
Although it fell in some clichéd scenarios, played with our distrust and waryness for some possible upcoming tragedy and its romantic storyline was still a bit draggy; I felt this episode as something organic and logical for the most part. Finally, our two leading heroes are strongly standing on their feet, walking on the wild... More »

Secret Garden: Episode 1

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

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 »
