Oh My Lady: Episode 4
by | March 30, 2010 | 73 Comments
I think the drama is finally getting its emotional footing. I’d been a little worried that it wouldn’t make that emotional connection, so I’m relieved at the signs in this episode. (By “emotional connection,” I don’t necessarily mean that I want melodrama or angst, specifically. It’s that I want a drama to feel like it... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 3
by | March 29, 2010 | 55 Comments
Generally I don’t have a problem buying Choi Siwon playing a 28-year-old in this role — he can look older than his age and he’s dressed like a grown-up — but in this shot (from a fantasy sequence, no worries about additional kiddos showing up unannounced) he positively looks like a high schooler. Until he... More »

Chuno: Episode 14
by | March 29, 2010 | 56 Comments
Hi, I’m thunderbolt and I’m the last of the 2009 year-end reviewers writing a Chuno recap. That means there are five of us recapping what many believe will be crowned Drama of the Year. Some detractors, however, think Chuno is more joke than jewel. Varying opinions aside (and it is not unusual to feel conflicted... More »

Hero: Episode 9
by | March 27, 2010 | 14 Comments
Despite my resistance, I gave in and watched Episode 9. You know how it goes; you just can’t fight the cliff hangers! For my fan girl moment this time (you know you’ve come to expect this from me, right?) I’ve decided to pay homage to Kim Ik. He is just so cute and is such... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 16 (Final)
by | March 26, 2010 | 104 Comments
Before we get into the final recap, I want to give a hearty thanks to girlfriday for recapping this drama with me. I’ve never shared recaps for a series before, and I found it even more fun than I thought it would be, and also a learning experience (to see what she picked out that... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 2
by | March 23, 2010 | 62 Comments
Episode 2 continues the light, comic feel of Episode 1. For those of you who felt Episode 1 was too familiar and conventional, plot-wise, perhaps the added complication in Episode 2 will capture your interest. Yes, it’s rather like Speed Scandal: The Drama Version — but hey, who doesn’t want to see the drama version... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 1

Cute show. Challenging, no. But amusing, generally yes. It pretty much delivered what I expected: some conventional setups and kdrama cliches, with a cute lead boy (Choi Siwon may have the body of a man but he’s firmly in boy-man territory for me) and a lovable leading lady. (I am SO glad to see Chae... More »

Personal Taste (the novel): Part 3
by | March 21, 2010 | 81 Comments
What a tangled web we weave… There are a lot of missed connections and misunderstandings in this next part, so hopefully it doesn’t get too confusing.   Chapter 7: “The silver fish vs. the she-cat” Woo-min remains unaware of In-hee’s designs on Jin-ho, so when she receives a call from her friend suggesting another sleepover,...

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 15
by | March 21, 2010 | 62 Comments
Meltdown! Hey, if my 24-year old boyfriend were hanging out with a popstar who calls him oppa, I’d be gnashing my teeth on raw pasta too. Or making a voodoo effigy. To each her own. There’s trouble in paradise this week, as we close in on the finale, and all our couples are put through... More »

Chuno: Episode 13
by | March 20, 2010 | 56 Comments
Well, this is the episode! It took 10+ years, thousands of miles, scores of drawings and over a dozen episodes, but this interminable story line of near-miss after near-miss has finally come to an end. Dae-Gil has found his beloved Un-Nyun. But this Un-Nyun is not the beautiful and carefree slave girl of Dae-Gil’s memory.... More »
