Romance Town: Episode 4
by | May 24, 2011 | 92 Comments
Soon Geum finally spends her money! This drama isn’t perfect (there’s whiplash-like, choppy editing during Gun Woo’s changing scene that drives me nuts), and is full of tropes and cliches (cold chaebols, unreliable dads, etc). But it’s perfectly enjoyable, so I hope you think so too! SONG OF THE DAY Jessica – “Overflowing with Tears”... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 5
by | May 23, 2011 | 181 Comments
The lie’s in full effect now, and with it come the shenanigans of perpetrating the farce, with a few teeny signs hinting at the budding attraction despite/because of the lie. Frankly I thought the lie-induced hilarity would be more, well, hilarious, but I hope that the things set up in this episode will play out... More »

This episode had me screaming for MOAARRRRR! You’d think a drama that’s all about slice of life would elicit a calmer response, but no. I’m also counting on this drama to give me another awesome bromance. SONG OF THE DAY Tei – 너뿐이야 from Romance Town OST [download] Tags: featured, Jung Kyeo-woon, Kim Min-joon, Min... More »

Best Love: Episode 6
by | May 19, 2011 | 251 Comments
Best Love just gets better and better. It really stepped it up this week — last week I was chuckling and enjoying the wacky, and this week I am INVESTED, yo. Like, hardcore. These characters are just so well acted — not, perhaps, as well-written (they’re familiar types), but the performances really elevate them. Plus,... More »

49 Days: Episode 20 (Final)

If I tried to explain this episode in a paragraph, I think I’d spill more tears, and frankly, I don’t know if I have any left. So here it is in a nutshell: It’s FUCKING PERFECT. Gah. Okay, fine, it’s maybe a hair shy of perfect, but damn if it isn’t the most satisfying ending... More »

Best Love: Episode 5
by | May 19, 2011 | 229 Comments
Yay, what a zippy, fun, character-development-packed episode. Plus there are more puns, zany references, running jokes — I’m nigh drowning in them. In a good way, of course. It’s also the first episode that got to me emotionally, which is GREAT. I love that phase of a drama that goes from pure comedy to emotional... More »

49 Days: Episode 19

Oh man, I think I’m out of tears. 49 Days, you owe me tears! Like, a bucketload of them — I need to rehydrate. Drama, I’ll accept my payment in lattes, please. How can a story with such sad elements be so satisfying? We start wrapping up our story threads, but the drama still manages... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 4

Yay, the brothers meet! And it’s not only cute, but I’m finally getting emotionally invested. It’s actually the brothers’ relationship that ends up pulling me in, go figure. Glad they didn’t go melodrama-on-melodrama with them, despite the tragic love triangle setup. It’s not without some melodramatic flair, but it’s kept realistic in its core relationship,... More »

Romance Town: Episode 2

Oh. My. God. Episode 2 just gets better. Let me clarify that when I said it would be a bumpy ride, it was because I didn’t know where this drama was going. I was afraid that this drama might be directionless, shuffling back and forth between good and bad. However, I’m going to put my... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 3

Week 2 of Lie To Me brings us an extension of the lie, and although it doesn’t bring a whole lot of surprises, it’s the chemistry of the cast that has me coming back for more. Ah-jung is sure to have more crackling chemistry with Ki-joon in future episodes when their lovelines really get tangled... More »

Romance Town: Episode 1

Hallo everyone! I have joined the brigade of “All Dramas – No Sleep” – at least, until 49 Days ends. It was hard to get excited about this drama, what with Cha Seung Won being funny on one end, and Yoon Eun Hye back where she belongs in romantic comedy. But I guess all I... More »
