Hello, fellas! Hey, guys! It’s aberdeen_angus reporting from a kingdom far far away. I’m the new maknae, and I’ll be doing Prosecutor Princess recaps alongside kaedejun, whom you’ll remember from another recaps such as Iris. I’m very glad of writing here and thankful to javabeans, who allowed me to share my thoughts about this series.... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 3
by | April 8, 2010 | 92 Comments
(Sniiiiiiiiff. Mm, eau de Min-ho.) MUCH improved, I thought. After the first week, I thought Personal Taste wasn’t as good as I had hoped, but it was about as good as I expected. I enjoyed it for the zippy situations and hilarious cast. The biggest complaint from fans, however, was regarding the drama’s editing; they... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 6

Jazz hands! I was trying to split these intro screenshots equally between Choi Siwon and Chae Rim, but what can I say, dude makes some funny faces. Well, this is moving faster than I thought it would. In a kdrama, that’s almost always a good thing, since it keeps us on our toes. SONG OF... More »

girlfriday here, going for the double-album comeback tour by taking on another Wednesday/Thursday combo platter with javabeans. Looks like Thursdays are going be busy. Bring on the angst!

Chuno: Episode 15
by | April 7, 2010 | 64 Comments
Chuno has taken a very serious turn, and I was extremely surprised by what happened in the last episode. It is as if PD Kwak gathered together all of the Chuno writers, and announced, “Well, I don’t know about you guys, but I think we can make Dae-Gil’s life even more brutal…” and then all... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 5
by | April 6, 2010 | 103 Comments
Sing it, sista! In the first four episodes, Oh My Lady hadn’t really wowed me, though it has been cute. Episode 5 ups the game and starts the bonding between Chae Rim and Choi Siwon in earnest, which revs my interest and adds some excitement. SONG OF THE DAY Kim Yeon-woo – “S.O.S.” [ Download...

Personal Taste: Episode 2

girlfriday here, making a comeback! Ever notice in Korea how nobody goes anywhere, but everyone makes a comeback? Yes, that’s the size and relative roundness of Jin-ho’s butt, in case you were wondering. And yes, that’s pretty much the expression that accompanies the grabbing of said butt. This episode brings our leads together under one... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 1
by | April 2, 2010 | 181 Comments
Cinderella’s Sister is off to a strong start, not just in ratings but with some really stellar characterizations. It’s not as simplistic a switcheroo as My Love Patzzi, which was also a reversed Cinderella story but only in the most superficial way. Cinderella’s Sister doesn’t just take the characters and rearrange them into different configurations,... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 1
by | April 1, 2010 | 137 Comments
The ratings for the Thursday episodes shifted slightly, but the order remained the same as the first day. Cinderella’s Sister was first with a 14.5%, Personal Taste remained in second with a 12.5%, and Prosecutor Princess crept up slightly to an 8.7%. Since I outlined the basic plot in the first impressions post, let’s dive... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 4
by | March 30, 2010 | 73 Comments
I think the drama is finally getting its emotional footing. I’d been a little worried that it wouldn’t make that emotional connection, so I’m relieved at the signs in this episode. (By “emotional connection,” I don’t necessarily mean that I want melodrama or angst, specifically. It’s that I want a drama to feel like it... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 3
by | March 29, 2010 | 55 Comments
Generally I don’t have a problem buying Choi Siwon playing a 28-year-old in this role — he can look older than his age and he’s dressed like a grown-up — but in this shot (from a fantasy sequence, no worries about additional kiddos showing up unannounced) he positively looks like a high schooler. Until he... More »
