A Star’s Lover: Episode 2
by | December 12, 2008 | 49 Comments
It’s nice to be doing recaps again. Some of you may wonder why I sometimes take on three series at a time, and at other times none. It’s not only a matter of time, but really, what interests me. And recently, there haven’t been any series that compel me enough to follow closely. Since we’re... More »

A Star’s Lover: Episode 1
by | December 10, 2008 | 54 Comments
I wasn’t sure how I would feel about SBS’s A Star’s Lover. I approached it hesitantly, because (1) Hype often leads to disappointment, and (2) I know by now that series descriptions don’t really adequately portray the actual product. So it is with a bit of relief that I say: I liked A Star’s Lover.... More »

The World They Live In: Episode 5

Since The World They Live In is all about the behind-the-scenes activity of drama-making, a few meta points sneak in to the storytelling, which should be amusing for those of us who like to bemoan the evils of some kdrama tropes. Today’s episode is all about one of those clichés, the “pure romance.” SONG OF... More »

Painter of the Wind: Episode 7

Eek! I am so, so behind. *facepalm* I actually considered mushing some of the episodes together into one giant recap, just so I could catch up, but then realized that this drama has waaaaay too many important details to leave out. Also, I don’t know when to shut up. But y’all probably already know that... More »

Hai guyz! I’ve had my butt pretty thoroughly kicked by school this past week, and you have no idea how glad I am to write to all of you. If any of you suffered permanent damage from the suspense of waiting, err, I do apologize. *bows* I totally take back what I said about there... More »

Er, not so thrilled with Episode 4. It wasn’t a bad episode, but it wasn’t as strong as the previous episodes, in my opinion, and I think I have a pretty good idea why. More below. SONG OF THE DAY Horan (Clazziquai) – “Listen to My Heart” [ Download ] Tags: Hyun Bin, Song Hye-gyo,... More »
