Hero: Episode 5

Fan girl moment: I have to say, I really dig those boots! Also, I think this hairstyle works really well for my boy! Come to think of it, I really like the whole casual/cool style Do Hyuk has going on here! Ok, fan girl moment over (for now!) Tags: Eom Ki-joon, Hero, Lee Jun-ki, Yoon... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 7
by | February 15, 2010 | 76 Comments
This rollercoaster ride of an episode takes us from zero to sixty, then back again before we know it. It gave me some serious whiplash, but I’m a tv masochist, so you know I’ll be right back for more. We finally get some good conflict between the girls (they can’t be perfect roomies forever), and...

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 6
by | February 13, 2010 | 40 Comments
When I started watching The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry, I was pleasantly surprised. It was fun and amusing and better than expected. With Episode 5, though, that feeling grew and I started sensing that emotional pull, that excitement building that goes beyond mere entertainment. There are some dramas you enjoy as a light...

Smile: Episode 27
by | February 11, 2010 | 19 Comments
Nothing particularly substantial happens in this episode. There are lighthearted and enjoyable moments, but it was pretty much a filler episode that rehashes the same themes. The key element that makes this series work is the growth of the characters and the relations between them. Since there’s barely any developmental progress in this episode, it... More »

IRIS: Episode 18

Just when you thought things could only get better, it only drastically goes wrong. Why, you ask? Well, of course! – We have two more episodes! (I promise – two-episode recap next time!) Therefore – we need a few more problems and obstacles before we bring the series to an end. And so, let’s get... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 12

(Awwww. And look at the little-boy slippers next to the grown-up ones!) A very good episode for Pal-gang, I thought. Is it strange to feel proud of fictional characters for making mature decisions and being levelheaded? That sounds like it ought to be boring stuff, but on the contrary, it’s really satisfying to watch her... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 11

Big episode! There are big movements in most of the relationships, and we also find out what the big deal about Kang-ha’s pained past is. (And it actually makes pretty good sense.) Or at least, we find out about the childhood part of it; his past romantic issue is hinted at but not yet revealed.... More »

Hello, Skimmy here! I will be taking over the Pasta recaps along with Andromytta (who is also recapping Hero).

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 4
by | February 8, 2010 | 38 Comments
Cute and funny as usual, but also, now the plot really gets going. Usually when dramas have many main characters, I find a few I like and tune out the ones that are boring/annoying/useless. This drama is managing to balance its main characters well and show us aspects to everyone that are relatable. I don’t... More »
