IRIS: Episode 18
by | February 11, 2010 | 10 Comments
Just when you thought things could only get better, it only drastically goes wrong. Why, you ask? Well, of course! – We have two more episodes! (I promise – two-episode recap next time!) Therefore – we need a few more problems and obstacles before we bring the series to an end. And so, let’s get... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 12
by | February 10, 2010 | 95 Comments
(Awwww. And look at the little-boy slippers next to the grown-up ones!) A very good episode for Pal-gang, I thought. Is it strange to feel proud of fictional characters for making mature decisions and being levelheaded? That sounds like it ought to be boring stuff, but on the contrary, it’s really satisfying to watch her... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 11

Big episode! There are big movements in most of the relationships, and we also find out what the big deal about Kang-ha’s pained past is. (And it actually makes pretty good sense.) Or at least, we find out about the childhood part of it; his past romantic issue is hinted at but not yet revealed.... More »

Pasta: Episode 5

Hello, Skimmy here! I will be taking over the Pasta recaps along with Andromytta (who is also recapping Hero). I’ve been a long-time follower/admirer of Javabeans and her blog, so it’s an honor and a pleasure to come on board. Without further ado, on with the show! Lee Seon-kyun is really just too cute.

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 4
by | February 8, 2010 | 38 Comments
Cute and funny as usual, but also, now the plot really gets going. Usually when dramas have many main characters, I find a few I like and tune out the ones that are boring/annoying/useless. This drama is managing to balance its main characters well and show us aspects to everyone that are relatable. I don’t... More »

Hero: Episode 4

Hero: Episode 4 The first issue of Yong Deok Ilbo has been published, causing elation for the Yong Deok team, but leaving three highly disatisfied readers in it’s wake. Do Hyuk encounters the first such reader when he personally delivers his paper to the offices of DAESE Ilbo. Kang Hae Seong does not like having... More »

Chuno: Episode 7
by | February 6, 2010 | 63 Comments
Chuno Episode 6 left us gasping for breath, waiting nearly a week to see what happens with the former General-turned-slave Tae-Ha rushing to rescue the former slave-turned-noble woman Hye-Won (Un-Nyun to Dae-Gil and so named for the rest of this recap), the former noble man-turned-slave hunter Dae-Gil rushing to capture Tae-Ha, Un-Nyun trying to escape...

Chuno: Episode 6
by | February 4, 2010 | 61 Comments
Another great cliffhanger – Kwak Jung Hwan sure knows how to keep us on the edge of our seats! The last episode ended with Dae-gil, realizing he’d been tricked by Tae-ha, racing back to the inn. Tae-ha puts his ear to the ground and hears Dae-gil’s horse approaching. The chase continues… SONG OF THE DAY... More »

Smile: Episode 26
by | February 4, 2010 | 22 Comments
Perhaps distance does make the heart grow fonder. I set aside Smile for a while, so as not to watch ahead of writing these recaps (having skimmed up til 29, let me say, it changes the way you perceive the episodes). But when I picked episode 26 back up to write this recap, I was... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 10
by | February 3, 2010 | 82 Comments
That just speaks for itself, doesn’t it? Hehe. Heh. I find myself more and more glad that Kang-ha was such a grumpybutt early on, because it makes his funny moments now that much more awesome. It wouldn’t be nearly as gratifying, for instance, to see that look of frustration on Jun-ha’s face, would it? SONG... More »
