Secret Garden: Episode 9
by | December 11, 2010 | 214 Comments
With our leads back to “normal,” Episode 9 turns back to the romantic developments and dials down the wacky, which I suppose is necessary though I’ll admit to missing the zany physical comedy of the past few episodes, because some of those body-switch bits were truly hysterical. True, they were sometimes played more for the... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 12 (Final)
by | December 8, 2010 | 78 Comments
Finally, we reach the end of what I feel confident declaring one of the best shows I’ve seen in recent memory. I’ve seen a lot of dramas in the past year, and although there have been a lot of disappointments, just having one this good come along every year makes it worth it. (Last year... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 9

Oh, Cute. You sure do go a long way with these two. I wish your sister Conflict could visit with as much regularity. And we won’t even talk about your third cousin Logic. There’s just no sense in crying over him. Then in the meantime, could we… maybe… get those handcuffs back? Tags: featured, Jang... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 8

I know, an episode involving handcuffs and the kinkiest moment we get is a hair shampooing scene! One guess whose. To be honest, I’ve been bored out of my MIND with Mary for the past few weeks. Normally I’d just drop a drama when it got that painfully dull, but I stuck with it this... More »

Secret Garden: Episode 8
by | December 6, 2010 | 273 Comments
We’ve got kissing, handholding, bed-hopping, and towel-dropping, and that’s all in the first half hour. Our body-swapped souls get entangled in each other’s affairs, further complicated by the heartbreak rivalry going on between Oska and Seul. It’s funny that both cousins are fighting, but neither is fighting for the same girl…except for purposes of maximum... More »

Secret Garden: Episode 7
by | December 4, 2010 | 181 Comments
If Episode 6 was a fantastically zany, nonstop hour of insane body-swap antics, then Episode 7 is a dash of that mixed with more of an emotional element. Always welcome, in my book. Also: If the naming gets confusing, just remember: The name that it sounds like (Ra-Him = Ra-im) is the name of the... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 11
by | December 3, 2010 | 20 Comments
Episodes 11 and 12 are really two parts of one story (as were Episodes 7 and 8 ) and aired on the same night, so I considered writing them up together. But I think there’s enough to talk about in this one alone, although I plan to have 12 up shortly so we can get... More »

It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl: Episodes 2-3
by | December 1, 2010 | 62 Comments
With this week’s episodes completing the introductory, premise-establishing phase of new SBS drama It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl, I feel like I can now make a judgment call, when I’d been holding off after last week’s broadcast of Episode 1 — I’d felt the story was still incomplete because of the pre-emption of Episode 2 and...

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 7

Finally, some DRAMA up in this drama! It’s certainly about time, I tell ya. Things finally come to a head, punches are thrown, lips get kissed, and everyone gets spun around due to the overabundance of those pesky feelings. The last episode sincerely had me believing the two boys were more into each other than... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 6

How can two characters be so incredibly cute, and the rest of the drama so boring? I wish the magnetism and chemistry of Moon Geun-young and Jang Geun-seok could somehow spill into the other parts of the drama when they’re not onscreen, but sad to say, the screen only lights up when they’re on it....

Secret Garden: Episode 6

Oh, the goodness. There is SO MUCH of it to go around. I knew it’d be explosive when they started inhabiting each other’s bodies, but this? This is drama heaven. I can’t promise that the schtick won’t grow old, but if Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won keep playing it up like they do here, they... More »
