Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 10

Dang, I know I said Dae-sung should have died, but now that he has, I feel kind of bad about it. It’s just that this is the angst I was expecting in Episode 8; it’s been delayed one very long week, which explains why I agree with some of javabeans’ general lack of enthusiasm for... More »

Prosecutor Princess: Episode 10

I wasn’t completely psyched watching this – even though a lot of the mystery gets elucidated and the love square/pentagon is at full force. This is not a particularly happy episode (nor was it a particularly happy week for PP) but Park Shi Hoo OWNS this episode! His acting and his pain saved it for... More »

Prosecutor Princess: Episode 9

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re introducing a new friend. “New” is a matter of speaking, since you’ve known it from other kdramas. Without further ado, here it is: Angst. (applause) Yes, my friends, it was busy with other projects but we managed to bring it here. It won’t take over the whole story, though; it’ll just... More »

They will cut you with that stare. Back away slowly. I’ll be honest and say I was not a fan of this episode, and it’s not because of what happens at the end. Oh, there was some stellar acting in it, as ever, and I don’t really have a problem with the angst levels. (There’s... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 11

Little feetsies! He’s thinking, “How can such a teeny little thing cause so much trouble?” And I’m thinking, “Boy, just wait until she learns to talk back!” This drama isn’t moving as quickly as I’d like it to, but I do think it’s picking up ever so slightly. It probably helps that there are more... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 10
by | May 2, 2010 | 200 Comments
It’s “Game Over” this week, as our four leads stake their claims and advance into battle. New alliances are formed, old enemies make backdoor deals, and the innocent are lambs to the slaughter. It’s gettin’ good, but it’s also reaching the height of what it can be while still maintaining the initial premise, so I... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 9

The drama picks up some steam, gaining on the momentum of last week’s episodes. At this point, there are a lot of characters with partial information and who misunderstand the full truth, and nobody’s misperceptions are quite the same as anybody else’s. This could get confusing, but I think it’s to the actors’ credit that... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 8
by | April 29, 2010 | 111 Comments
If this series wasn’t called Cinderella’s Sister, it would be called “Stepmother’s Daughter,” because what really drives all the conflict, at the core, is these two and their warped relationship. It’s tragic, funny, achingly sad and deeply Freudian in its twisty melodramatic way, while still being eminently relatable because they’re both so human and flawed.... More »

I love this photo – she’s puffing her cheeks AND squatting – she looks like a little kid…heh! THE KISS! Do I even have to give a preface to this recap!? Song of the Day I was pretty torn on which song to put up from the OST but here goes… Prosecutor Princess OST –... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 7

What makes this show fascinating for me isn’t really the melodrama, or even the romance — not that they are badly presented, as they aren’t — but the completeness of the characterizations. These people feel like real people, in that there are things you may like or hate about them but it’s difficult to peg... More »
