Smile: Episode 25
by | January 30, 2010 | 47 Comments
Hello to all continuing Smile-lovers and the now less enthused followers! I know it’s been awhile (all my doing) and we’re a full 10 episodes behind on the recaps, but there’s good (or bad, depending on how you see it) news. There’s still 11 more episodes left of Smile! That’s a full 6 weeks –... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 8
by | January 29, 2010 | 74 Comments
When I first started watching Wish Upon a Star, I had no idea it would be as winning as it is shaping up to be. We’re still not yet half-done so I won’t make grand proclamations, but it’s doing a great job so far. Particularly with this episode, which was a laugh-out-loud, hilarious, aww-inducing one....

Will It Snow For Christmas: Episode 16 (Final)
by | January 28, 2010 | 136 Comments
Finally, the end! The angst is over! Phew. Although I didn’t really have specific predictions for how the story would end, I was fairly certain about the tone that would characterize the finale. The result was pretty close to my expectation, so more than anything, I’m relieved. Did I like the ending? Generally speaking, I... More »

Will It Snow For Christmas: Episode 15
by | January 27, 2010 | 50 Comments
Good episode, or frustrating episode? I think a little of both. But now that we’re in the last week, I’m just looking forward to tomorrow’s finale. Granted, this writer is not known for sweet, perfect happy endings, and given her track record I think we can hope for mild happiness (or bittersweetness) at best. But... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 7
by | January 26, 2010 | 68 Comments
Best episode so far! It’s funny and adorable, with more character and plot development. I almost even found the Jung family scenes interesting (or, at least, not UN-interesting). All the characters are growing into their quirks, particularly the kids. SONG OF THE DAY Peppertones – “지금 나의 노래가 들린다면” (If you can hear my song... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episodes 1-2
by | January 25, 2010 | 61 Comments
MBC’s new trendy drama The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry didn’t get off to a strong ratings start last week, and given that Chuno looks unlikely to falter, it may very well remain an underrated show. It’s too bad, because there’s a refreshing quality to the drama that I enjoyed; it’s halfway between Dal... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 6
by | January 24, 2010 | 51 Comments
Episode 6 kicks off the next phase of this drama, in a fun way. Everything has now been set up, and although saying that Episodes 1-5 were setup ground makes it sound like they’re slow, in fact it’s quite the opposite. They’ve been fast-paced and funny, with a healthy amount of heart-tugging scenes sprinkled in.... More »

IRIS: Episodes 14-15
by | January 24, 2010 | 12 Comments
First off, I have to apologize – I have made several mistakes, in my last recap and before, which episode 14 made very clear. When Hyun Joon drops Seung Hee off after she’s released by the North Koreans, he drops her off at (his and) Sa Woo’s home – not hers. And secondly, when Mi... More »
