Personal Taste: Episode 5
by | April 18, 2010 | 97 Comments
This coupling is really starting to grow on me. With this episode and the next, we’re seeing the connection grow, and while there are still certain missteps in the pacing/editing of the show, the developing friendship/romance keeps me hooked. Before the drama aired, I was wondering how the age difference would play out. Funny enough,... More »

God of Study: Episode 6
by | April 17, 2010 | 14 Comments
So I told myself I was going to try and stay away from being too much of a fangirl…but things like this keep this drama incredibly adorable for me. Episode 5 was somewhat of an awkward cram for me; I tried to fit as much as I could that I felt was necessary for the... More »

Smile: Episodes 34-35

These two were fun, sweet episodes. Nothing earth shattering but sweet and clean. Kind of like the next door puppy when she comes up to me for a belly scratch. I don’t love her like my dog but she’s sweet enough to smile at and play with for a few minutes. Smile has become like... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 8
by | April 15, 2010 | 60 Comments
I thought this episode was better than the previous ones. It didn’t suddenly get rid of its weaknesses, but it gelled together nicely, probably because the characters’ relationships are starting to take shape and Min-woo is taking significant steps in growing as a person. Also, the different plot threads — which have felt pretty scattered... More »

Prosecutor Princess: Episode 4

General Choi saves the day!!!!! Or more like, Prosecutor Yoon Se Joon!!!! Poor Park Shi Hoo – he looks completely helpless and lame on the sidelines… Ditto to that Heartbreak x 1000… I think episodes 3 and 4 were the transition episodes for Hye Ri’s character. It’s hitting home now that she really needs to... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 7
by | April 14, 2010 | 59 Comments
I find that my interest in this drama fluctuates wildly, not from one episode to the next, but within each hour. Overall it’s cute and it has a benign sort of charm to it. The conflicts work for this style of drama, but we all know they’re pretty lightweight and the stakes and angst factor... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 4
by | April 13, 2010 | 190 Comments
It’s a popular opinion, I know, but it has to be said: Moon Geun-young blows me away. She isn’t afraid to take Eun-jo to the darkest places, and doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to her misplaced anger. She gets ugly and mean, and human, but then when she’s light, she becomes young, fragile,... More »

Prosecutor Princess: Episode 3

¬°Hola, amigos! Well, well, well, we left episode 2 with Hye-ri being taken by the police, accused of trying to have some unhealthy fun with two kids. Can an hour of korean television be heartbreaking, fun and hate-inducing at the same time? Yes, and this episode is just another proof of that. SONG OF THE... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 4
by | April 12, 2010 | 133 Comments
While Personal Taste is generally playing it safe in the traditional man-will-teach-bumbling-woman-how-to-live setup, we do start to see some cracks in Jin-ho’s armor, which makes me warm up to him a little more. Nobody likes a know-it-all who actually knows it all. In this episode the roommates start to bond, and we finally get an... More »

Smile: Episodes 32-33
by | April 12, 2010 | 24 Comments
These episodes were pretty tongue-in-cheek, bringing back the charm that’s been missing in the last umpteen episodes. Track suits aside, the moment above reminded me of the Royal Tenenbaums—this ensemble cast has really hit its stride, having established their character quirks and playing off each other for comedic effect. Two things: Jung-kil bonding with Hyun-soo... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 3

She’s not as tough as she looks, is she? Don’t try to hide that you have a heart, you big softie! Loved this episode, which had a lot of character movement. This is such a good drama — whimsical, thoughtful, funny, and well-balanced. Prior to the drama’s premiere I had guessed it would be high-quality,... More »
