My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 4
by | August 19, 2010 | 197 Comments
When a show is fast, clever, AND heartfelt, I’m owned, heart and soul. What can I say? I’m a sucker for the wimpy hero, and the super-powered girl who turns his life upside-down. There are so many great reversals—the powerful girl looking up at him like a wide-eyed child, her transformation into a monster frightening... More »

The story synopsis caught my attention when it was first announced and I like both actors, so I was hoping for a fun hour. The episode turned out to be pleasantly... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 4
by | August 15, 2010 | 67 Comments
As frustrated as I am with the divorce storyline being dragged out, it’s literally one of the best parts of the drama. It’s all about Ji Wook’s eyes and the dramatic tension that oozes when you put him, Seol Hee, and Seung Hye in the same room. Oh, and Noo Ri is also the other... More »

Hello! C’est moi, kaedejun, here to take over recapping duties on I am Legend! Hope you’re all not too disappointed. Here’s where I stand on the series so far: loving Kim Jung Eun, hating Kim Seung Soo, “meh” on the name “Madonna Band” and Lee Joon Hyuk’s beard-stache, and going ga-ga over Lee Joon Hyuk’s...

Annnnnd we have a winner! What a cute first episode to start off what looks to become an entertaining, zippy ride. Both leads are adorable, but more than that, the story is fresh and innovative. It takes some familiar elements and mixes them with creations that are pure Hong Sisters Originals. (If you’re coming to... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 17 (Final)
by | August 10, 2010 | 341 Comments
Here we are, the finale! I thought it was better than Episode 16, but frankly that isn’t saying much. At least 16 was entertaining and off-the-wall. This episode, as the wrap-up, was more puzzling. I know there was a three-episode cut-down and all that scheduling madness. HOWEVER, the drama finished filming two weeks before the... More »

Greetings from the North Pole! The girls called me up for a guest spot, so I gladly obliged, because they’ve both been really good this year. Also my reindeer are suing me, and they offered me some legal advice in exchange. I swear I really only ever used “mush” when we were in a big... More »
