Bad Guy: Episode 15 (Take two)

Goddamn it. Santa Claus totally stole my thunder! Go back to the North Pole, there’s no Christmas in August! Well, not unless you’re Selfridges, at least. But we’re not having that here. SONG OF THE DAY MC Mong – “죽을 만큼 아파서” (It hurts to death) [ Download ] Tags: Bad Guy, Han Ga-in, Kim... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 15
by | August 5, 2010 | 165 Comments
Greetings from the North Pole! The girls called me up for a guest spot, so I gladly obliged, because they’ve both been really good this year. Also my reindeer are suing me, and they offered me some legal advice in exchange. I swear I really only ever used “mush” when we were in a big... More »

I Am Legend: Episodes 1-2
by | August 4, 2010 | 64 Comments
I Am Legend kicked off this week to a fairly good start, both in story and in reception. The first episode had a decent 10.1% rating, which the second episode improved upon it with an 11.7%. I’d been interested in the premise from the start, back when it starred Kim Sun-ah, and was game for... More »

Coffee House: Page 18 (Final)
by | August 1, 2010 | 143 Comments
I enjoyed this finale. Finale episodes are tricky things. You have to wrap up the story, but not in such a rushed way that it feels crammed, like the drama ran out of time. We as the audience usually need some time to come down from the emotional climax, and a drama that cuts off... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 13

These two should have their own show. They could have conversations about nothing and it would be funny. I’d watch that, seriously. Thirteen episodes in and I’m still marveling at the gorgeous look of this drama. There’s no doubt that the director puts as much care into the look of the show as he does... More »

Coffee House: Episode 17

Hey, girlfriday here, pinch hitter in the Coffee House lineup. I couldn’t let the series end without getting a word in, so I’ll be providing you with the recap today, and rest assured, javabeans will be back for the finale. Earlier in the run I liked the series but didn’t love it, mainly because one... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 12

Things are getting down and dirty, and I like it. Our bad guys go head-to-head in an emotional confrontation (finally!) and Jae-in picks a side. Things start coming apart at the seams for Gun-wook, as he starts to show signs that he’s no longer driving this bus; it’s carrying him along, and he’s starting to... More »

All right, we’re in our last week! Last week was a hectic mess and I fell behind on recaps, but I’m hoping that this week will be much more productive. It’s been a fun ride but I’m ready for this one to wrap up and make way for some new, potentially fun dramas that are... More »

Halftime Report: Road No. 1
by | July 25, 2010 | 41 Comments
Back by popular demand, it’s Round 2 of: Show vs. Girlfriday. I thought I’d check in with Road No. 1 at the halfway point, to see how it’s progressed since we last faced off in battle. To be clear: this is an experiment of sorts—I have not watched Episodes 2-9, so that I could come... More »
