Dr. Champ: Episode 8
by | October 24, 2010 | 67 Comments
This drama’s one word definition is: adorable. I can’t really say what happens in each episode, but I can sure say that I’m left with indescribable warmth and a silly smile. I guess that’s love, the utopian, the juvenile, the immature love that you know won’t be the definitive. However, many years in the future,... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 7
by | October 23, 2010 | 46 Comments
Terribly sorry for the delay. While I have been slow with this recap, this episode has been moving fast. I love that this drama keeps moving along with the plot points, and while there are certain things that keep getting reused as obstacles, they’re not so unbelievable that I’m getting tired of the trope. So... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 7

Oh man, this episode is brilliant. The more I think on it, the more brilliant it becomes. If we gave this the U.S. television treatment, this would be the episode winning a bunch of Emmys. I understand if it was confusing for viewers, though, because it’s not an episode whose message is clearly spelled out... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 16 (Final)

Show, I didn’t expect you to take the snail’s pace thing quite so literally. But here we are in the finale, and well, loose ends get tied, double-knotted, and bow-tied for good measure. It’s an entire episode of getting everyone’s ducks in a row, with not even a hint of conflict to drive us home.... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 15

You can start to see the loose ends being tied up, or rather, preparing to be tied up in the finale tomorrow. I suspect we’ll get a lot of ends hastily tied together in the next episode just for the sake of leaving everyone happy, which I am not a great fan of; lead us... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 14
by | October 20, 2010 | 271 Comments
Dear history experts and buffs, Please don’t take my following words as sacrilege. But I say screw history! At least for the remaining six episodes of Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I don’t want to hear talk about how illogical it is for Sun-joon and Yoon-hee to be together (as the Romeo and Juliet of Joseon), or that... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 6
by | October 19, 2010 | 34 Comments
Beware: steer clear of irate diver women if you are trying to run away. This episode was fun and eventful, and I love the speedy pace so far. It stretches out the plot points to the right moment- it doesn’t become repetitive or, conversely, resolve issues too quickly without building the dramatic tension. Tags: featured,... More »

I’m feeling refreshed from my mini recap vacay and ready to get back in the game with this awesome episode. It’s official. I’m shipping the Yong-ha+Guh-ro bromance all the way. Not that I don’t love... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 5

[And you thought this show was dead! Thankfully, a very capable recapper, nattacatta, has volunteered her efforts to making sure last year’s gem of a drama, Tamra the Island, does not go unappreciated. We assure you that the recaps WILL NOT DIE this time (sorry ’bout that), and in fact will be available on a... More »

Dr. Champ: Episode 6
by | October 17, 2010 | 60 Comments
This was just insane. It seems that it isn’t springtime only at home; in dramaland I’m experiencing similar weather conditions. When I watch this drama, I’m not exhausted by the heat of intricate, full of heart-tugging events or the coldness of puzzling characters who show no emotion at all. Dr. Champ is shaping up to...

Joseon X-Files: Episode 6
by | October 16, 2010 | 45 Comments
This episode was a little (okay, a lot) scarier for me to watch, because ghosts and supernatural stuff always gets to me a lot more than, say, aliens or monsters or mutations. That said, don’t let my wimpiness scare you off, since everyone’s got a different set of standards for what constitutes fear-inducing. I just... More »
