Personal Taste: Episode 7
by | April 24, 2010 | 124 Comments
This was it! This was the episode that made me love Personal Taste. All of a sudden it went from merely entertaining to heart-tugging, and I credit the great performances. I love Kae-in, I love Jin-ho, I love Sang-jun and Young-sun, I love Do-bin, I love to hate In-hee — pretty solid lineup, really. The... More »

Prosecutor Princess: Episode 6
by | April 23, 2010 | 59 Comments
Let me preface this post by saying that this episode is RIDICULOUS, and I mean it in both good and bad ways. 1) The Bad Way: the writing is starting to stretch believability in some parts already. I want to be convinced. Not say: “Yeah, right!” 2) The Good Way: Many more developments in characters,... More »

Ooookay, guys! Hello to you all, Prosecutor Princess lovers and haters (and indifferent lurkers as well!). Here we are, after that fantastic catch in the airport, with the cutest stalker in the world, grabbing Hye-ri’s hand. What will happen next? I’ll grab all of your wrists and say “Let’s go for Episode 5′s recap”! SONG... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 9
by | April 21, 2010 | 67 Comments
Aw, finally the angst hits! Granted, for a drama of this tone the angst isn’t overpowering, which is probably a good thing. Plus, there’s plenty of cute to balance it out. I think we could all sorta see this coming so it wasn’t very surprising, but I did appreciate how we were brought here in... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 6
by | April 20, 2010 | 157 Comments
Seo Woo turns out a stellar performance this week in back to back episodes of Cinderella’s slow turn to the dark side. It’s like watching how Lex Luthor got to be…Lex Luthor. The love quadrangle starts closing in on our main characters, and Ki-hoon’s return throws a wrench in just about everyone’s day. Jung-woo steps... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 6

I know this couple had their detractors, but come on, they’ve totally stolen your hearts, right? In this episode entitled “Sweet Roommate,” Jin-ho and Kae-in give us a lesson in chemistry, and share noodles, heartaches, cramps, and a bed. I know…I always get the toilet ones. In one deftly crafted episode, we go from friends... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 5

Better and better, I say. I still miss the teenage years and, like girlfriday, felt I could have been perfectly content to have them mine that territory longer. But I can see the point about moving them forward to explore how things have shaped up in the intervening years to land us in the adult... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 5

This coupling is really starting to grow on me. With this episode and the next, we’re seeing the connection grow, and while there are still certain missteps in the pacing/editing of the show, the developing friendship/romance keeps me hooked. Before the drama aired, I was wondering how the age difference would play out. Funny enough,... More »

God of Study: Episode 6
by | April 17, 2010 | 14 Comments
So I told myself I was going to try and stay away from being too much of a fangirl…but things like this keep this drama incredibly adorable for me. Episode 5 was somewhat of an awkward cram for me; I tried to fit as much as I could that I felt was necessary for the... More »

Smile: Episodes 34-35
by | April 16, 2010 | 41 Comments
These two were fun, sweet episodes. Nothing earth shattering but sweet and clean. Kind of like the next door puppy when she comes up to me for a belly scratch. I don’t love her like my dog but she’s sweet enough to smile at and play with for a few minutes. Smile has become like... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 8
by | April 15, 2010 | 60 Comments
I thought this episode was better than the previous ones. It didn’t suddenly get rid of its weaknesses, but it gelled together nicely, probably because the characters’ relationships are starting to take shape and Min-woo is taking significant steps in growing as a person. Also, the different plot threads — which have felt pretty scattered... More »
