Playful Kiss: Episode 10
by | October 2, 2010 | 364 Comments
Looks like JB’s got some competition in the curly-bedhead-making department! Much of the usual upbeat tone is tamped down in this episode, due to a big misunderstanding that, well, nobody but Ha-ni believes. But I’ll let that plot point go, since it’s nice to have some emotional changes, as Ha-ni struggles to let Seung-jo go,... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 1

I’m baaaaaack! And you can either love it or hate it. Javabeans and Girlfriday have been kind enough to let me AND *wait for it* aberdeen_angus recap this series. (Heh – we have unintentionally become the “Kim So Yeon recappers.”) I am going into this series with particularly low expectations because of two things: 1)... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 9

Yay for forward movement! Our Man-Robot Seung-jo takes some big strides toward becoming a real boy, and this episode is chock-full of sweet moments that warm the cockles of my jaded heart and send Ha-ni to cloud nine. And a happy Ha-ni is a happy Playful Kiss. SONG OF THE DAY Hot Potato – “고백”... More »

Dear Show, How do I love Thee? Let me count the ways. 1. Your hero is Woongtastic. 2. Your heroine is the cutest thing since cats started having babies. 3. You do crazy things, but then you recover with The Cute. 4. You hurt, but you hurt so good. 5. You speed along like a... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 15
by | September 29, 2010 | 154 Comments
I was expecting a lower-key, sort of mellow episode today, and sure enough, we get the typical Episode 15 lull. The episode contains some necessary moments and does truthfully need to go through some of this stuff before heading into the finale — otherwise the ending feels unearned and jammed together — but it also...

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 8

Dear Dr. Quinn, Is it possible to die of: (a) too much hiccupping; (b) curiosity and fright; (c) broken ideals; or (d) having one’s pride slashed to pieces? If yes to any of the above, please hurry to SKK as quickly as possible. There are four strapping young men (?) in need of your attention.... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 7

Excuse me, I’ve got a serious problem. Very serious indeed. I have a severe case of dry mouth. Do you know why, dear reader? Oh I think you know…I’m sure you have it too. It’s because I can’t seem to close my mouth during the whole hour this godforsaken drama enraptures me!!! I’m too busy... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 8
by | September 26, 2010 | 341 Comments
Episode 7 was the first one I connected with on an emotional level (there was something in my eye, I swear), so I had higher expectations going into 8. We’re definitely in a better place than previous weeks, and I do think that this show actually improves from week to week. Truthfully, it still hasn’t... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 15
by | September 25, 2010 | 34 Comments
WHEEEE! This series reminds me of Stars Falling From the Sky, where the cute and happy parts were winning, the melodrama kind of odd, the story meandering, and the drama overall a fun roller coaster ride. I know there’s still one more episode left, so for now I’ll just keep my judgments to: WHEEEE!!!! SONG... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 14
by | September 24, 2010 | 239 Comments
Episode 13’s game-changer was a tough act to follow for sure, and I was a little worried that we’d sap all the dramatic tension out of the story once all the rules went out the window. Thankfully, the dramatic tension still abounds, but sadly, it means that the old rules just get replaced with new... More »
