Miss Ripley: Episode 3
by | June 6, 2011 | 81 Comments
I’m liking where this is heading, and how the characters are starting to emerge and develop. Everyone’s more complex than they appear at first glance, and each of the main four has his/her own set of contradictions, which make them intriguing. Plus, we start to see Miri spread her wings and take her first steps... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 9 Open Thread

The Lie is finally outed, though to no discernable difference as far as Ah-jung’s frenemy-ship with So-ran is concerned. They even seem to be closer for it, which pretty much solidifies the fact that this is a relationship I will never come to understand. Seriously, can we introduce this girl to other girls who are...

Romance Town: Episode 8

If every episode after this one could have the same pace as this one, I would sincerely ask for nothing more. Throw me the illogical-ness and the melodrama, and I would take it all. Just keep up the pacing and fun for the rest of the series! Oh but a fast-paced drama does not mean... More »

City Hunter: Episode 4
by | June 5, 2011 | 207 Comments
HUZZAH. Well that seals it. While the first two episodes were great fun, with Episodes 3 and 4, I’m in LOVE. Maybe it’s something in the water, but this drama hits me right in that comic-book action-hero sweet spot: caped crusader fighting against the system, and growing up in the process. Just not, yunno, literally... More »

Romance Town: Episode 7

I’ll try to give a “deep” recap without explaining my own personal “fairy tale” and how I want the drama to progress. After all, some people think my recaps are “thin” and “lack substance.” Oh but whoops – I’m writing this intro after I’ve written the recap – and I’ve “squee’d” a tad too much... More »

City Hunter: Episode 3

Ahh, my initial liking for City Hunter just bloomed into love. It’s slickly packaged, yet manages to keep a sense of heart. That’s not easy to accomplish — and to make that feel so effortless on top of it all is impressive. On top of that, I’m in love with the tone of this drama.... More »

Best Love: Episode 10
by | June 2, 2011 | 311 Comments
It’s just the way I like it: Superheroes Over Flowers, as the boys step up their game and leave us all spun around in the process. Will Iron Man get a new heart? Will Spiderman sell his friend up the river for pastries? Will this drama ever stop being awesome? Best Love hit a series... More »

Best Love: Episode 9

Did they switch the cameras all of a sudden? Because this episode is GORGEOUS. As if I didn’t love this drama enough already. Angst can sometimes be frustrating, sometimes satisfying. This is my favorite kind, when it moves the plot — and the emotions, and the character development — swiftly along and gives rise to... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 2

I like. It’s definitely not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, since it’s a melodrama through and through. But I find the premise highly addictive—and strangely, easy to identify with, despite the dramatics. I find myself rooting for a heroine to lie, cheat, and steal, which is ODD, to say the least. It’s what... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 8 Open Thread

This episode in a nutshell (or, as I like to think of it, the weecap): Ah-jung takes care of Ki-joon when he’s sick (food-poisoned by her leftovers). She’s miffed when he doesn’t reply to her text, so Ki-joon admits that he didn’t know how to reply — if he said he was still sick, she’d... More »

Romance Town: Episode 6

I think this episode had a lot less going on. It provided more revelations into the side characters, and it’s the official formation of a love triangle. OH THE ANGST. Sorry for the delay as well on this recap. There was something called a “Memorial Day Holiday” that I partook in… Tags: featured, Jung Kyeo-woon,... More »
