Personal Taste (the novel): Part 2
by | March 12, 2010 | 58 Comments
Now that the premise is established, this is where the plot really gets going. Some of my favorite bits are in these chapters, because this is where the gay/not-gay misunderstandings start to unravel, and hate turns to uh-oh-maybe-not-hate? (In case you missed the intro, here are Chapters 1-3.) Tags: books, Personal Taste... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 13
by | March 11, 2010 | 76 Comments
The Angst! Oh, the angst. There’s plenty of it to go round and round, though it’s Min-jae’s episode to shine, as he is understandably the one most squeaked out by the mother-girlfriend-boyfriend sharing. Yeah, come on…that’s weird. I’m surprised he didn’t toss his cookies right in front of them, but he does have a pretty-boy... More »

The gray hair is actually growing on me, and I think Kim Bum wears it well. One single lady down, one (two?) more to go! SONG OF THE DAY Kim Bum-soo – “그대와 영원히” (With You Forever) which is sung in this episode. [ Download ] Tags: Choi Chul-ho, Eom Ji-won, Kim Bum, Lee Pil-mo,... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 18
by | March 9, 2010 | 103 Comments
This episode shares a similar tone to yesterday’s, which means it was a little mellower, in a positive way. Also, just when I was wondering at the logic of certain actions (which seemed like they were stretching a bit thin), we got a more thoughtful explanation for them. It was a nice way of fleshing...

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 17

I liked this episode — it was a little mellower than the previous ones. Given the prominence of Jae-young’s dramatics in those prior episodes, I consider this a good thing. (Also: hardly any Jae-young today!) As we head toward the drama’s finish, we’re dealing less with the crazy bitchy rival lady and getting back to... More »

Personal Taste (the novel): Part 1
by | March 7, 2010 | 87 Comments
I got my hands on the Personal Taste novel a little while ago, and started reading to whet my appetite for the upcoming drama (March 31!). I knew I’d be interested in this story based on the general premise — a man pretends to be gay in order to room with a woman — which... More »

Hey guys! Sorry about the delay on this recap! Recently, my body has been rebelling against me, so I haven’t really been doing much but working and sitting around the house! I’m starting to feel better now, so let me get right back into things…. …With a fan girl moment! It’s a shirtless YDI reporter!... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 11

Ladies and gentlemen, we have THE KISS. This drama has been pretty stingy with the smoochies, but the build-up was so good that I may or may not have shouted, “Kiss her! Kiss her already!” at my tv more than a few times. I haven’t anticipated a kiss like this since Coffee Prince, and although... More »

Smile: Episodes 28-29
by | March 3, 2010 | 34 Comments
First, let me say that I’m sorry and embarrassed for taking SO long to do this recap. I intended to get this done about two weeks ago, but despite the best of intentions, I simply couldn’t keep up. I imagine that’s how the writer felt, too, when she got slammed with writing 16 more episodes…... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 16
by | March 2, 2010 | 83 Comments
The above isn’t a significant scene in the episode, but it’s memorable for Cho-rok’s line that comes with it: “Unni, I think I’m going to have to marry Tae-kyu oppa!” This was definitely a better episode than yesterday’s. It still had its faults, and the emotional logic can be perplexing, if not downright nonsensical. But... More »
