Playful Kiss: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 21, 2010 | 287 Comments
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 »

Tamra the Island: Episode 6

Beware: steer clear of irate diver women if you are trying to run away. This episode was fun and eventful, and I love the speedy pace so far. It stretches out the plot points to the right moment- it doesn’t become repetitive or, conversely, resolve issues too quickly without building the dramatic tension. Tags: featured,... More »

[And you thought this show was dead! Thankfully, a very capable recapper, nattacatta, has volunteered her efforts to making sure last year’s gem of a drama, Tamra the Island, does not go unappreciated. We assure you that the recaps WILL NOT DIE this time (sorry ’bout that), and in fact will be available on a... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 6
by | October 17, 2010 | 60 Comments
This was just insane. It seems that it isn’t springtime only at home; in dramaland I’m experiencing similar weather conditions. When I watch this drama, I’m not exhausted by the heat of intricate, full of heart-tugging events or the coldness of puzzling characters who show no emotion at all. Dr. Champ is shaping up to...

Joseon X-Files: Episode 6
by | October 16, 2010 | 45 Comments
This episode was a little (okay, a lot) scarier for me to watch, because ghosts and supernatural stuff always gets to me a lot more than, say, aliens or monsters or mutations. That said, don’t let my wimpiness scare you off, since everyone’s got a different set of standards for what constitutes fear-inducing. I just... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 5

BROOMAAAAANCE! Honestly – this is all I ask for, writers of this drama. Please, please PLEASE give Sang Bong and Ji Heon a happy ending! The boys deserve some lovin’, since Ji Heon is continually getting rebuffed by Yeon Woo and Sang Bong…well, he’s continually getting rebuffed by Ji Heon. SONG OF THE DAY Dr.... More »

Lordy, I didn’t think we’d EVER get here. But here we are, and what a breath of fresh air it is to see Robot Boy stepping up to own his feelings. What’s even better is what he does afterwards, because as awesome as the kissing is, it’s much more satisfying to see them steer each... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 13
by | October 13, 2010 | 304 Comments
FINALLY! I’ve been waiting twelve episodes (nearly thirteen, really) for this turn in the story. I’m not saying Ha-ni has to become a different person or that Seung-jo needs to turn into a considerate human being overnight for me to be satisfied — I just needed some balance to this relationship. I’m not even so... More »
