Dr. Champ: Episode 9
by | October 29, 2010 | 45 Comments
Let’s all relive this moment, shall we? Ji Heon: I don’t like being this way (forgiving Yeon Woo), but I like you. Crazily. I just realized, I almost always have the bad luck of recapping the episode AFTER a squee-worthy moment (like here and here). Lucky you aberdeen!! OK – on to episode 9. Tags:... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 8

This episode sure focuses on the take-over side of the plot, and I love that it doesn’t bother me. It is still fun, interesting and vibrant. And therein lay Tamra’s charm. Tags: featured, Hwang Chan-bin, Im Joo-hwan, Seo Woo, Tamra the Island... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 16
by | October 27, 2010 | 244 Comments
Dear red pill‘s erratically beating heart, Be still. Else you’ll overexert yourself and fail me. And I need you to be strong for the remaining stretch, to be a pillar through the love, angst, sadness and happiness forthcoming. Besides, “heart failure due to excessive excitement over cute love scenes” as the cause of death is... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 7
by | October 25, 2010 | 44 Comments
Man, I love Tamra the Island. The pacing continues to be tight, the acting continues to be strong, the characters continue to grow and the scenery continues to be beautiful. What more could one ask? Perhaps for some skinship? Well… Tags: featured, Hwang Chan-bin, Im Joo-hwan, Seo Woo, Tamra the Island... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 8
by | October 24, 2010 | 67 Comments
This drama’s one word definition is: adorable. I can’t really say what happens in each episode, but I can sure say that I’m left with indescribable warmth and a silly smile. I guess that’s love, the utopian, the juvenile, the immature love that you know won’t be the definitive. However, many years in the future,... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 7

Terribly sorry for the delay. While I have been slow with this recap, this episode has been moving fast. I love that this drama keeps moving along with the plot points, and while there are certain things that keep getting reused as obstacles, they’re not so unbelievable that I’m getting tired of the trope. So... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 7
by | October 22, 2010 | 57 Comments
Oh man, this episode is brilliant. The more I think on it, the more brilliant it becomes. If we gave this the U.S. television treatment, this would be the episode winning a bunch of Emmys. I understand if it was confusing for viewers, though, because it’s not an episode whose message is clearly spelled out... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 16 (Final)

Show, I didn’t expect you to take the snail’s pace thing quite so literally. But here we are in the finale, and well, loose ends get tied, double-knotted, and bow-tied for good measure. It’s an entire episode of getting everyone’s ducks in a row, with not even a hint of conflict to drive us home.... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 15

You can start to see the loose ends being tied up, or rather, preparing to be tied up in the finale tomorrow. I suspect we’ll get a lot of ends hastily tied together in the next episode just for the sake of leaving everyone happy, which I am not a great fan of; lead us... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 14

Dear history experts and buffs, Please don’t take my following words as sacrilege. But I say screw history! At least for the remaining six episodes of Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I don’t want to hear talk about how illogical it is for Sun-joon and Yoon-hee to be together (as the Romeo and Juliet of Joseon), or that... More »
