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 »

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 »

Triple: Episode 9

A cute episode, and one that seems to (finally) be prodding our characters into the next phase of development. I don’t need high angst to keep me interested and I’ve been enjoying the story thus far for that laid-back ambiance, but I also appreciate that the story is moving along for all the couples. SONG...

Triple: Episode 8

Somebody commented (sorry, I forget who) in a previous post that this is a drama whose flavor gets lost in the retelling, and to an extent I’ve got to agree. Well, all dramas lose something in the recapping process — there’s no way mere words can equal acting, filming, music, and mood — but Triple... More »
