The Man Who Can’t Get Married: Episode 1
by | July 7, 2009 | 66 Comments
First of all, much thanks to Javabeans for letting me commandeer her site so I could post these recaps and putting up with all my questions. Second, I have to say that I’m really enjoying this show much more than I expected. I am watching the show ahead of where I’m writing my recaps, so... More »

Triple: Episode 6
by | July 2, 2009 | 60 Comments
I think Episode 6 was the best episode so far, although I haven’t seen 7 yet so I can’t speak to this week’s episodes. Dramas that have “themed” episodes can go either way, because if a writer takes the theme too far, it can be overbearing in forcing the events to match the theme. I... More »

Partner: Episode 1
by | June 25, 2009 | 72 Comments
Partner got off to its start this week, and it was kind of like I expected: flawed but fairly entertaining. Not a fabulous story, and there are some pretty big plot holes, but the acting keeps it afloat. I hadn’t realized just how much I’d missed Lee Dong-wook — but he is SO enjoyable. SONG... More »

Triple: Episode 5
by | June 24, 2009 | 66 Comments
Another cute episode with a lot of cute scenes. I think Triple is starting to settle into its groove — it’s not all the way there yet, but storylines are starting to flow a little more, I think. It’s also a pleasure to watch a drama that is refreshing and breezy, with a little bit... More »

Story of a Man: Episode 20 (Final)
by | June 21, 2009 | 90 Comments
Ohhhhh, what a freaking great way to go out! I was afraid the ending wouldn’t live up to the series, especially with all the snippets of spoilers floating around… but I loved it. I can see why some might have wanted something different, but I thought it was quite fitting. SONG OF THE DAY 8eight... More »

Triple: Episode 4
by | June 18, 2009 | 61 Comments
Overall, I am really enjoying this show and appreciate the casting, but I think I’m having a problem with Su-in (or is the issue with Lee Hana?). I haven’t decided whether it’s purely a character thing or an acting thing, but if Su-in were one of the seven dwarves, she’d be Mopey. But at least... More »

Triple: Episode 3
by | June 17, 2009 | 37 Comments
Triple is shaping up to be an adorable drama. In addition to its Coffee Prince similarities, it’s also sorta like My Sweet Seoul in its charm, but with more pep. Like The World They Live In, each episode is titled with a theme, but unlike World, Triple doesn’t overdo the narration or get too self-indulgent... More »

Story of a Man: Episode 19
by | June 14, 2009 | 48 Comments
It was hard picking a good screencap today because all of them are such huge spoilers to the plot. (Seriously? OMG WUT THE HELL, EPISODE 19?? Are you trying to give me a heart attack? I’d been spoiled as to one huge thing (well, several), but not one in particular, so this episode still managed... More »

Triple: Episode 2
by | June 12, 2009 | 48 Comments
As I said in the Episode 1 recap, Triple is very cute. It’s got a very similar style and sensibility to Coffee Prince, so if you’re looking for something along those lines, you’re in luck. The music is again a standout feature, both well-chosen and diverse (with a mix of Korean indie and Western tracks).... More »

Triple: Episode 1

TRIPLE DAY IS HERE!!! NOTE: Thursday saw the broadcast of both Episodes 1 and 2. All along I had planned on recapping both of them in one introductory post, since it would save time and probably work out well given the airing schedule… but I liked Episode 1 a lot and decided to write them...

Story of a Man: Episode 18
by | June 11, 2009 | 36 Comments
I don’t think the above image is meant to be unsettling, and it wasn’t necessarily so in the context of the scene… but when sorting through all the screencaps for this episode, it jumped out at me as being eerie and meaningful: Do-woo and Eun-soo about to join hands in front of their as-yet-unbuilt future...
