City Hunter: Episode 15
by | July 13, 2011 | 368 Comments
The prosecutor is hot on his trail and it looks like someone’s secret identity isn’t going to be secret for very long. Could the City Hunter maybe just take a wee break from saving the world so that he can focus on maintaining his cover? My blood pressure would surely appreciate it. Tags: City Hunter,... More »

You’ve Fallen For Me: Episode 5
by | July 13, 2011 | 139 Comments
Yeah, that’s the face I’d be making, too, if I had a crush on an insufferable hottie who got particular pleasure out of thwarting me. Thankfully, those days of adolescent tumult are behind me. Phew for that! Speaking of which, I think this drama does a good job of capturing the feelings of the youthful... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 14
by | July 12, 2011 | 164 Comments
The shit, it meets the fan, and for more than one person. I do appreciate the speed with which this drama blows the lid off of all its secrets, letting us speed past the inevitable angsting about whether they’ll be revealed (’cause we know they will) and head straight for the fallout. It’s an episode... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 2
by | July 12, 2011 | 116 Comments
This show is friggin’ hilarious. I love the sense of humor of it – it’s like a farce, but played straight, like a dark comedy. The North Korean stuff feels like Dr. Strangelove which is right on the money, and the setup is perfectly ridiculous, but totally engaging. It’s like half-war-comedy, half-screwball-romance, which is refreshingly... More »

Romance Town: Episode 18

We’re nearing the end! There may be a lot of threads to close, but I think this drama has been chugging along nicely to the end. We’re going to get some closure, and some satisfaction. I’m most amazed at the fact that we get one more twist our way so late in the series. It’s... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 13
by | July 11, 2011 | 108 Comments
It’s the villains’ episode to shine, and Hirayama and Lee Hwa rock it. I really wish Hirayama had been in more of the drama from the start, instead of cooling his heels for so long. But hey, it’s worth the wait, since Miri has built up her tower, and now he’s here to both speed... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 1
by | July 11, 2011 | 138 Comments
Myung-wol the Spy makes me giggle, for all the right reasons: It’s funny, it’s flashy, it looks good, and it’s entertaining. I was hoping for a deft directorial hand, and with the director of Sungkyunkwan Scandal behind the camera, Myung-wol has an assured, stylish air. It’s mindless fun in the sense that you can sit...

Romance Town: Episode 17
by | July 10, 2011 | 31 Comments
The revenge is ON! This episode was way better because for one thing, there was far less crying, whining, and greediness going around. Everyone’s reached a somewhat secure and happy place. But some fortunes are still reversing, as the rich families of 1st Street are still suffering. On top of that, I call this episode... More »

City Hunter: Episode 14

Bromance! Bromance! Bromance! Oh please, tell me that’s next on the menu. Just the suggestion of such a development has me all awash in anticipation, because the conflict of avenging-hero-versus-lawman is so rife with possibility. We’ve got the romance angle secure, so now it’s time to turn our attentions to the bromance…or perhaps the escalation... More »

You’ve Fallen For Me: Episode 4
by | July 7, 2011 | 193 Comments
I like it much better this week, now that we’ve gotten past the introductions and into the musical, with crushes, competition, and egos galore. It’s a familiar setup, but if you’re a fan of musicals like me, there’s no business like show business. Bring on the divas. Tags: featured, Jung Yong-hwa, Lee Hyun-jin, Park Shin-hye,... More »

City Hunter: Episode 13
by | July 6, 2011 | 296 Comments
I feel like this show stabs me and then bleeds me dry, every single episode. Is this what dating a vampire is like? Because the rush, the addiction… I know it’s bad for my health, but I can’t stop. Show, I know you’re just going to love me, then leave me, but why can’t I... More »
