The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 8
by | February 18, 2010 | 55 Comments
Aw. Poor Min-jae? Actually, as much as I find Kim Bum cute, I liked seeing his character taken down a peg or two. With this episode, we start to get a little more weighty with the relationship issues, but not so much that it feels out of step with the drama’s pacing. The characters have... More »

Fan girl moment: I have to say, I really dig those boots! Also, I think this hairstyle works really well for my boy! Come to think of it, I really like the whole casual/cool style Do Hyuk has going on here! Ok, fan girl moment over (for now!) Tags: Eom Ki-joon, Hero, Lee Jun-ki, Yoon... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 7
by | February 15, 2010 | 76 Comments
This rollercoaster ride of an episode takes us from zero to sixty, then back again before we know it. It gave me some serious whiplash, but I’m a tv masochist, so you know I’ll be right back for more. We finally get some good conflict between the girls (they can’t be perfect roomies forever), and...

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 6
by | February 13, 2010 | 40 Comments
When I started watching The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry, I was pleasantly surprised. It was fun and amusing and better than expected. With Episode 5, though, that feeling grew and I started sensing that emotional pull, that excitement building that goes beyond mere entertainment. There are some dramas you enjoy as a light...

Smile: Episode 27

Nothing particularly substantial happens in this episode. There are lighthearted and enjoyable moments, but it was pretty much a filler episode that rehashes the same themes. The key element that makes this series work is the growth of the characters and the relations between them. Since there’s barely any developmental progress in this episode, it... More »

IRIS: Episode 18

Just when you thought things could only get better, it only drastically goes wrong. Why, you ask? Well, of course! – We have two more episodes! (I promise – two-episode recap next time!) Therefore – we need a few more problems and obstacles before we bring the series to an end. And so, let’s get... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 12

(Awwww. And look at the little-boy slippers next to the grown-up ones!) A very good episode for Pal-gang, I thought. Is it strange to feel proud of fictional characters for making mature decisions and being levelheaded? That sounds like it ought to be boring stuff, but on the contrary, it’s really satisfying to watch her... More »
