ATHENA: Episode 9
by | January 22, 2011 | 29 Comments
OH MY GOD WE HAVE MOVEMENT! On the romantic front, and the nuclear energy front. It did border the State of Cheesy but I guess the good thing about the slow and long build up of Hye In and Jung Woo’s romance is that it justifies his actions in this episode. Sort of. Not that... More »

My Princess: Episode 6
by | January 20, 2011 | 279 Comments
Kim Tae-hee is kinda rockin’ it, which I really didn’t expect myself to say…ever. Her character’s kind of an airhead, but in an endearing and sweet way. She’s rather naïve, but the fact that she wants to trust Hae-young despite the fact that she knows better, is really cute. The comedy continues to be light... More »

My Princess: Episode 5

The lulz, they keep coming. Between My Princess and Dream High, my weeks are looking bright and fluffy. The two dramas appeal to me in very different ways, but both also make me laugh out loud and aww for the characters, and that’s enough to make me happy. SONG OF THE DAY Ibadi – “산책”... More »

Dream High: Episode 6

This show KILLS ME. Why so awesome? For starters, it looks like 2011’s gonna be another year of bromance. Yee-haw. I’d encourage everyone to get on the bandwagon, but I’m fairly certain you need no prodding. Just hazarding a guess. Dear javabeans: Get your moneypurse ready to be emptied. The showdown is ON, and I’m... More »

Don’t worry – aberdeen_angus will be back soon! You’ll all just have to deal with me for a couple more recaps… So let’s all find out how much more “useful” BoA will be, shall we?

Dream High: Episode 5

Okay, Dream High just became awesome. Maybe I’m just in a good mood today, or maybe it’s because this episode is all sorts of feel-good fun. Either way, Episode 5 had me loving every single minute.

Secret Garden: Episode 20 (Final)
by | January 16, 2011 | 624 Comments
It’s the bow-tied, triple-knotted kind of ending for this cast of characters, as we say our final goodbyes to Secret Garden. I’d personally like to say farewell to omo-queen Secretary Kim. Thanks for the laughs. And of course to my new favorite idol-oppa, Oska. Yoon Sang-hyun, I was never on your bus before, but I’m... More »

Secret Garden: Episode 19

We’re almost there! Phew, what a roller-coaster journey this drama has been, and this episode is no different — it takes us from one extreme to another, serving up some silly moments, light romantic beats, cute comedy, and then more melodrama with lots of angsty tears. Talk about a wild ride. SONG OF THE DAY... More »

My Princess: Episode 4

Is it possible for two guys to fight over two girls at the same time? Truthfully, then it really becomes more about THEM, and not at all about the girls, right? There’s fanfic just itching to be written out there somewhere. I’m having so much fun in this Rhombus of Jealousy and the early stages... More »

ATHENA: Episode 7
by | January 13, 2011 | 59 Comments
Kim Myung Guk is alive! Sean Richard has a name (Randy)! BoA appears! And Hye In continues being a cold-hearted Athena agent – except she gets caught. Or does she? My belief is suspended in this episode, but now, I’m used to it. I’m just going along for the ride because really, the acting trumps... More »

My Princess: Episode 3
by | January 12, 2011 | 231 Comments
My Princess puts a smile on my face. This drama is a ball of fluffy cute humor, buoyed by an often hilarious rapport between Kim Tae-hee and Song Seung-heon. It’s in the bickering vein, but not characterized by constant fighting or shrillness, which is often a danger in bickering romances. Sometimes the mood is friendly,... More »
