My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 14
by | September 24, 2010 | 239 Comments
Episode 13’s game-changer was a tough act to follow for sure, and I was a little worried that we’d sap all the dramatic tension out of the story once all the rules went out the window. Thankfully, the dramatic tension still abounds, but sadly, it means that the old rules just get replaced with new... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 13
by | September 23, 2010 | 185 Comments
Oh, My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho just kicked it up a notch. Yeah, I cried like a baby in Episode 13. Ratings-wise, this week was a real hit, since Baker King is out of the picture. Numbers shot up to 15.2% for Episode 13, then even more to 19.2% for Episode 14, which aired back... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 6

Dear Moony and Yummy Faction members, Thank you for your peaceful and harmonious alliance. It is indeed near impossible to choose between two very attractive men, and no one should be forced into that situation (at least not in K-drama Land). I hope your relationship stays strong – as strong as the friendship between Gul-oh... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 7
by | September 22, 2010 | 267 Comments
This episode had more than one plotline going on, but there was a general arc to the emotional progressions, so overall I was happy with it. I’m liking the characters more and more, and although He-ra is in the role of the hateful romance-spoiler, Lee Shi-young is playing her with this interesting mix of confidence,... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 5
by | September 22, 2010 | 170 Comments
If the first two episodes were ruled by the ever charming and forever bored Gu Yong-ha, then episodes 3-6 were completely dominated by Moon Jae-shin aka Guh-ro. His bad boy/good boy persona has most fangirls swooning, including me! Not to take away from Yong-ha, who is just as cute and charming as always, but I... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 4
by | September 21, 2010 | 47 Comments
OH MAN. This episode is sofa king good. Not only is it plotted tightly, staying one step (or, let’s face it, five) ahead of us, dropping well-placed hints, it has a strong emotional throughline. Despite having the most intense plot yet, it’s also the funniest episode thus far. I laughed, I cried, I gaped in... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 14

Ah – much better. I don’t know about the rest of you, but this episode was like a breath of fresh air for me, just as music was a place for the girls to “breathe” outside of their socially-accepted-other lives. Maybe my standards for “good” is a little low (and it has been in the... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 6
by | September 18, 2010 | 309 Comments
We don’t exactly pick up the same momentum started in the last episode, despite my fervent cheers of, “Come on, Show! You can do iiiiiiiiit!” I just adore Ha-ni’s embarrassingly realistic girl-with-a-bleeding-heart-crush so much that I want more for her. More story, more conflict, more…everything. In this episode Seung-jo ups his game and starts to... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 13
by | September 18, 2010 | 33 Comments
I would name this episode ‘The Rise and Fall (and Rise Again) of Jun Seol Hee.’ More push-and-pull between Seol Hee and her ex-Ji Wook. As others have mentioned in the comments, I do think that I Am Legend is trying to do a lot of things at once. But more on that later. Tags:... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 5
by | September 17, 2010 | 200 Comments
Yay! Playful Kiss finally figured out how to tell a story! This was the episode I was waiting for — one that felt complete, had an arc, told a story, was driven by something more than pure fluffy cuteness. It’s too bad this week dropped this drama to new ratings lows, because it’s just starting... More »

It’s time for the ultimate showdown: Libido vs. Fox Bead. Who will win? Who will lose? Who will make girlfriday cry? You know which horse I’m backing, but it looks like Show might have a mind of its own. Gah. What’s a girl gotta do for some smoochies ’round here? Oh, Show, you big tease.... More »
