Joseon X-Files: Episode 3
by | September 13, 2010 | 33 Comments
Another really strong episode. The plot thickens, and we start seeing the first hints of a romantic attraction — not too many, just enough little bits to intrigue. The director really has a deft hand with building suspense and drawing out the tension of simple moments. The subject of this episode isn’t particularly scary in... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 12
by | September 12, 2010 | 33 Comments
After the epic-ness that was the MoaE vs. Seol Hee face-off, I felt that this episode was on the boring side. There were too much Seung Hye, MoaE, and law-jingo that I was craving for more performances and more music. And yes – I am nearly bald after all the hair pulling. There was only... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 4

Show, you’re awfully cute, but I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’re all poof, no punch. Thankfully, I like all your characters, who are endearingly good-natured and sweet, so you’re not without your merits, and I have fun when I’m with you. I know, I can be a bit of a Goldilocks—I complain when there’s too... More »

Face off time! Except Seol Hee has bigger problems than just seeing her ex and his gal pal again. She has to find a way to save the marketplace, get the band ready for their stage debut, find a new guitarist, and deal with Tae Hyun’s lovelorn stares. What’s a girl to do?! The above... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 3
by | September 10, 2010 | 199 Comments
Ah, the eternal kdrama conundrum. Go for the perfect meanie who needs to be convinced of your worth, or the loyal lackey who already knows it? And of course, the answer (in a drama) is always the opposite of the one we’d advocate in real life. Funny how television can romanticize the unromantic, and vice... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 10
by | September 9, 2010 | 204 Comments
The recap in which girlfriday dies a thousand deaths. From The Cute. To everyone’s relief, the separation doesn’t last very long, and our couple spends the entire episode trying to kill me with their cuteness. They pretty much succeed, and truth be told, I’m not too upset about it. In this episode we have angst,... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 9
by | September 8, 2010 | 110 Comments
A cute episode, though not my particular favorite. We get some of the standard machinations of the supporting cast, and a few more wrenches thrown into the plot. Thankfully there are, as usual, a number of cute coupley moments to buoy us through these waters of Necessary Plot Complications. Ratings: No big shakeups, so the... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 2
by | September 6, 2010 | 29 Comments
This is a really well-done drama. Suspenseful, taut, and wonderfully produced. In addition to a story that intrigues, Joseon X-Files is really great to look at — love the pacing, the cinematography, the contrast of colors and light. It’s an example of a drama not just being pretty for the sake of pretty, but using... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 10

And we’re back to the plot heavy episodes. There is less movement on the band front, and more on the drama front. I knew I was getting spoiled with the moments in episode 9! Episode 10 marks the appearance of Jun Seol Hee – the Korean Erin Brockovich. Tags: featured, I Am Legend, Kim Jung-eun,... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 2

Okay, I’ll give you this, Kim Hyun-joong. You are improved. I’m still not entirely sure that the entire range of human emotions is something you feel, but I can see that of what you’re feeling, you are showing. Jung So-min, on the other hand, is pretty much born to do this role. There’ve been a... More »
