Will It Snow For Christmas: Episode 3
by | December 15, 2009 | 115 Comments
Oh, Go Soo, I have missed you. If his acting here is any indication, his dark role in the recent film Into the White Night has got to be killer. Can’t wait to see it. Now that we’re past the initial glow and into the meat of the story, I see that Will It Snow... More »

City Hall: Episode 15
by | December 15, 2009 | 61 Comments
(written by samsooki, clarity of thought, dissection, boxes of Kleenex and gentle hand-squeezing provided by 0timelost and cleown) Episode 15 – “The Price of Victory.” As amazing and as fun as Episode 14 was to watch, I feel like Episode 15 is deeper, stronger, all-encompassing.  I know that many of you have wondered how I would...

Will It Snow For Christmas: Episodes 1-2
by | December 14, 2009 | 127 Comments
I have said many a time that I dislike melodrama — as a genre, as a plot device, as a storytelling crutch. Excessive melodrama is what makes makjang dramas popular, but it drives me batty because I hate when stories are emotionally manipulative just for the sake of being emotionally manipulative. This, of course, excludes... More »

Smile: Episode 21
by | December 11, 2009 | 43 Comments
It was totally unexpected but my wishes are finally fulfilled and I get some real quality Sung-joon (and Ji-soo) time. With the Hyun-soo/Jung-in/Jung-kyung issue percolating, the Sung-joon/Ji-soo line is a welcome addition. I have some mixed feelings on how the whole love triangle thing was handled in this episode, but I found the giggle factor... More »

IRIS: Episode 4
by | December 9, 2009 | 19 Comments
I thoroughly enjoyed this episode – I do think that after three episodes of establishing the “ground work” with the characters, episode 4 picks up the pace and lets us plunge right into the main storyline. I’ve also heard that each character gets their moment to shine in terms of fleshing out their backstories –... More »

City Hall: Episode 12

(written by samsooki, with 0timelost, cleown, and mead33) Episode 12 – “Onward and Upward, the Return of City Hall Recaps, Episode 12.” I have to begin this episode recap with an apology. I had every intention of trying to stay with the production schedule of about 1-2 recaps per week until completion, but a certain... More »

Smile: Episode 20
by | December 4, 2009 | 69 Comments
This was one of the first episodes in quite awhile that I didn’t fawn over. I’m starting to feel that Jung-in and Hyun-soo’s relationship is moving into the sugary sweet arena, which makes me a bit antsy. The drama has done a good job of keeping things organic and need to introduce some angst into... More »

IRIS: Episode 3

My fave bad guy Hello everyone! I’m kaedejun – and I will be doing the recaps for IRIS starting with episode 3. I know that it was the biggest competition against the much beloved You’re Beautiful – of which I am completely addicted to and love as much as Coffee Prince. However, I can’t resist... More »

Smile: Episode 19
by | November 29, 2009 | 65 Comments
With Jung-in and Hyun-soo’s relationship in bloom, the drama could have easily slowed down. But I think it’s holding strong. The writer Moon Hee Jung (Last Scandal of My Life) does a clever job of keeping their honeymoon phase in check by adding in some light-hearted, fake to real sparring scenes. And Director Lee Tae...
