Style: Episode 1
by | August 7, 2009 | 62 Comments
So, Style. SBS’s new Saturday-Sunday drama is off to a great ratings start (mid-to-upper-teens), and given its competition (Friend, Our Legend and Iron Empress), it’s likely to stay that way. I have mixed feelings about this show so far. It’s somewhat watchable, although the degree of one’s enjoyment is probably tied closely to how appealing... More »

Dream: Episode 2
by | July 30, 2009 | 37 Comments
Argh, Dream did it again. After Episode 1 had aired, I was on the fence about continuing the drama, but pretty close to jumping off that fence. Most of Episode 2 did little to convince me otherwise, and I was content to let this drama go on without me. But again, the last ten minutes... More »

Triple: Episode 11
by | July 29, 2009 | 38 Comments
Triple is ending this week, and while I’ve enjoyed watching it, I’m finding that I’m in no rush to finish it. I think it’s because it feels like this series has been treading water for a while now. Yes, I understand that it’s a less-plot-driven, more slice-of-life sort of drama, but slice-of-life dramas still have... More »

Dream: Episode 1
by | July 27, 2009 | 32 Comments
I had a mixed reaction to today’s premiere episode of the SBS drama Dream. Perhaps viewers agreed, as the first installment drew a low 5.4% rating against MBC’s Queen Seon-deok (32.7%) and KBS’s The Man Who Can’t Get Married (8%). Note that this number was marginally better than its predecessor Ja Myung Go‘s opening number... More »

City Hall: Episode 8

(written by Samsooki, editing, layout, design and “CSW is ours” by 0timelost, cleown, and mead33) City Hall: Episode 8 – “Wonder Woman” or “The Other Woman”? What a beautiful opening scene, with flower petals and budding crushes in the air. Smells like spring love, perhaps. As Episode 8 begins, we see Jo Gook giving Mi... More »

Sons of Sol Pharmacy: Episodes 13-16
by | July 19, 2009 | 15 Comments
I’m terribly behind on recaps for Sons of Sol Pharmacy, and that is a grand freaking shame because I’m still very much enjoying this funny, heartwarming drama. This is such an easy-to-watch, pleasant show that zips along quickly that I feel bad about getting so far behind (in recaps, that is — I’m mostly caught... More »
