Personal Taste (the novel): Part 1
by | March 7, 2010 | 87 Comments
I got my hands on the Personal Taste novel a little while ago, and started reading to whet my appetite for the upcoming drama (March 31!). I knew I’d be interested in this story based on the general premise — a man pretends to be gay in order to room with a woman — which... More »

Hero: Episode 7

Hey guys! Sorry about the delay on this recap! Recently, my body has been rebelling against me, so I haven’t really been doing much but working and sitting around the house! I’m starting to feel better now, so let me get right back into things…. …With a fan girl moment! It’s a shirtless YDI reporter!... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 11
by | March 4, 2010 | 56 Comments
Ladies and gentlemen, we have THE KISS. This drama has been pretty stingy with the smoochies, but the build-up was so good that I may or may not have shouted, “Kiss her! Kiss her already!” at my tv more than a few times. I haven’t anticipated a kiss like this since Coffee Prince, and although... More »

Smile: Episodes 28-29

First, let me say that I’m sorry and embarrassed for taking SO long to do this recap. I intended to get this done about two weeks ago, but despite the best of intentions, I simply couldn’t keep up. I imagine that’s how the writer felt, too, when she got slammed with writing 16 more episodes…... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 16
by | March 2, 2010 | 83 Comments
The above isn’t a significant scene in the episode, but it’s memorable for Cho-rok’s line that comes with it: “Unni, I think I’m going to have to marry Tae-kyu oppa!” This was definitely a better episode than yesterday’s. It still had its faults, and the emotional logic can be perplexing, if not downright nonsensical. But... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 15
by | March 1, 2010 | 59 Comments
Not the best episode; I thought it felt rather flat, particularly compared to the many adorable moments we’ve seen in recent weeks. There are a couple of reasons for this, namely: too much Jae-young, not enough kids. That, and almost everyone annoyed in this episode, except Pal-gang. (The kids don’t count, because they weren’t really... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 10
by | February 28, 2010 | 69 Comments
This drama just keeps speaking to me — I can really relate to its characters and situations in a way that I generally can’t in most other dramas. I’m not 34 (yet!) and I don’t work in any of these professions and I’m not nearly as glam and awesome as these ladies, but the situations... More »

Chuno: Episode 11

No, no, noooooooo! The ink on the Episode 7 recap (where we saw Un-Nyun dropping her beloved Choco) is barely dry when Un-Nyun has moved onto stroking Jagger, the zhanmadao saber favored by Song Tae-Ha. Well, that answers the question of how long “true love” lasts these days in epic sa-geuks – ohhhh, about 3... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 14

Could these two be any more adorable? And to think, when the drama first aired, silly Pa-rang was my least favorite sibling. (For shame.) In keeping with this drama’s pattern, there are so many cute, funny, heartwarming moments that it’s too bad that there are other hateful characters muddying up the plot. On the other... More »

Hi, Dahee here. Hjkomo asked me to fill in for her for recapping episode ten, as she really does like her beauty sleep and would like to get back to doing it. I happily agreed, so here I am. No worries – she’ll be back for episode twelve (and Samsooki for eleven). Ten episodes in,... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 13

Yay, it’s back! I suppose absence does make the heart grow fonder, because a week off with no new Wish Upon a Star episodes really whetted my appetite for a new one today. Also: I’ve been meaning to mention it for a while now, but I love baby Nami. Often the baby of a drama... More »
