City Hunter: Episode 4
by | June 5, 2011 | 207 Comments
HUZZAH. Well that seals it. While the first two episodes were great fun, with Episodes 3 and 4, I’m in LOVE. Maybe it’s something in the water, but this drama hits me right in that comic-book action-hero sweet spot: caped crusader fighting against the system, and growing up in the process. Just not, yunno, literally... More »

Romance Town: Episode 7

I’ll try to give a “deep” recap without explaining my own personal “fairy tale” and how I want the drama to progress. After all, some people think my recaps are “thin” and “lack substance.” Oh but whoops – I’m writing this intro after I’ve written the recap – and I’ve “squee’d” a tad too much... More »

City Hunter: Episode 3

Ahh, my initial liking for City Hunter just bloomed into love. It’s slickly packaged, yet manages to keep a sense of heart. That’s not easy to accomplish — and to make that feel so effortless on top of it all is impressive. On top of that, I’m in love with the tone of this drama.... More »

Best Love: Episode 10
by | June 2, 2011 | 311 Comments
It’s just the way I like it: Superheroes Over Flowers, as the boys step up their game and leave us all spun around in the process. Will Iron Man get a new heart? Will Spiderman sell his friend up the river for pastries? Will this drama ever stop being awesome? Best Love hit a series... More »

Best Love: Episode 9

Did they switch the cameras all of a sudden? Because this episode is GORGEOUS. As if I didn’t love this drama enough already. Angst can sometimes be frustrating, sometimes satisfying. This is my favorite kind, when it moves the plot — and the emotions, and the character development — swiftly along and gives rise to... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 2
by | May 31, 2011 | 147 Comments
I like. It’s definitely not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, since it’s a melodrama through and through. But I find the premise highly addictive—and strangely, easy to identify with, despite the dramatics. I find myself rooting for a heroine to lie, cheat, and steal, which is ODD, to say the least. It’s what... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 8 Open Thread
by | May 31, 2011 | 309 Comments
This episode in a nutshell (or, as I like to think of it, the weecap): Ah-jung takes care of Ki-joon when he’s sick (food-poisoned by her leftovers). She’s miffed when he doesn’t reply to her text, so Ki-joon admits that he didn’t know how to reply — if he said he was still sick, she’d... More »

Romance Town: Episode 6

I think this episode had a lot less going on. It provided more revelations into the side characters, and it’s the official formation of a love triangle. OH THE ANGST. Sorry for the delay as well on this recap. There was something called a “Memorial Day Holiday” that I partook in… Tags: featured, Jung Kyeo-woon,... More »

Lie To Me: Open Thread? Vote!

So the recapping verdict is in: Miss Ripley in, Lie To Me out. Girlfriday and I are satisfied with this choice, inasmuch as we know our physical limits despite wanting to cover every drama ever. (Okay, not every drama. But a good chunk of ‘em.) However, we realize there’s still a crapton of you online,... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 1
by | May 30, 2011 | 150 Comments
Finally, the last of the May dramas premieres: Miss Ripley opened today with solid 13.2% premiere that landed it in first place, above Baby-Faced Beauty (11%) and Lie To Me (10.6%). The show wasted no time diving into uber-melodramatic waters, laying out its backstory speedily to bring us to the lie that sets everything in... More »

City Hunter: Episode 2

What a fun, zippy mystery. My favorite thing about this drama is that it’s so pretty to look at. (And I’m not even talking about Lee Min-HOT.) It’s got some seriously sexy cinematography, and a fictional world I already take to—it’s a heightened reality, which feels like a comic book. Think: Alias rather than 24.... More »
