The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 16 (Final)
by | March 26, 2010 | 104 Comments
Before we get into the final recap, I want to give a hearty thanks to girlfriday for recapping this drama with me. I’ve never shared recaps for a series before, and I found it even more fun than I thought it would be, and also a learning experience (to see what she picked out that... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 2
by | March 23, 2010 | 62 Comments
Episode 2 continues the light, comic feel of Episode 1. For those of you who felt Episode 1 was too familiar and conventional, plot-wise, perhaps the added complication in Episode 2 will capture your interest. Yes, it’s rather like Speed Scandal: The Drama Version — but hey, who doesn’t want to see the drama version... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 1
by | March 22, 2010 | 108 Comments
Cute show. Challenging, no. But amusing, generally yes. It pretty much delivered what I expected: some conventional setups and kdrama cliches, with a cute lead boy (Choi Siwon may have the body of a man but he’s firmly in boy-man territory for me) and a lovable leading lady. (I am SO glad to see Chae... More »

Personal Taste (the novel): Part 3
by | March 21, 2010 | 81 Comments
What a tangled web we weave… There are a lot of missed connections and misunderstandings in this next part, so hopefully it doesn’t get too confusing.   Chapter 7: “The silver fish vs. the she-cat” Woo-min remains unaware of In-hee’s designs on Jin-ho, so when she receives a call from her friend suggesting another sleepover,...

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 15
by | March 21, 2010 | 62 Comments
Meltdown! Hey, if my 24-year old boyfriend were hanging out with a popstar who calls him oppa, I’d be gnashing my teeth on raw pasta too. Or making a voodoo effigy. To each her own. There’s trouble in paradise this week, as we close in on the finale, and all our couples are put through... More »

Chuno: Episode 13
by | March 20, 2010 | 56 Comments
Well, this is the episode! It took 10+ years, thousands of miles, scores of drawings and over a dozen episodes, but this interminable story line of near-miss after near-miss has finally come to an end. Dae-Gil has found his beloved Un-Nyun. But this Un-Nyun is not the beautiful and carefree slave girl of Dae-Gil’s memory.... More »

Smile: Episodes 30-31
by | March 19, 2010 | 21 Comments
Surprisingly, rewatching these two episodes weren’t as torturous as I thought it would be. I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it, but just as soyjoy mentioned in her last recap, I can sympathize with the writer’s plight to stretch out a storyline by 16 episodes. Now that Smile has ended, I can look back and see... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 14
by | March 18, 2010 | 49 Comments
These two are too cute. Kim Bum is so much better as a noona-killer than as the oppa. He should really be banned from playing oppa roles until he’s out of the army. Two episodes left and I still don’t know how things are going to end. Because this drama is more realistic than most... More »

Last episode we see that at long last, Song Tae-Ha’s men have been reunited at the Sleeping Buddha statue at Un-Joo Temple. They greet the Crown Prince Seok-Kyeon with reverence and a determination to see this conspiracy through to the end. All of these men of Song Tae-Ha have given up their lives to this... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 20 (Final)
by | March 16, 2010 | 115 Comments
Wish Upon a Star ended with a series high rating of 18.5%, which was the top rating among Tuesday dramas. To be perfectly frank, I think the last two episodes are two of the weakest, which is too bad. We do get our happy ending (not that that was ever in doubt) and a feel-good... More »

Hero: Episode 8
by | March 16, 2010 | 14 Comments
This episode is pretty intense, so I’m going to try and keep my fangirliness to a minimum. So, just to get it out of my system, let me pay a fangirly tribute to the hotties of Hero. The languid and cool YDI photographer, Go Eun Sik. (Jin Sung) YDI’s cute maknae, Park Joon Hyung. (Ji... More »
