My Fair Lady: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 8, 2009 | 256 Comments
Oh my gosh, this was one of the worst finales I’ve ever seen. I’ve been leaving room for the drama to upswing at the eleventh hour, but now that it’s over I can say with certainty that this is a gross disappointment. I can’t say it’s the worst last episode EVER (because there are many... More »

You’re Beautiful: Episode 1
by | October 8, 2009 | 189 Comments
A few things about You’re Beautiful: Trademark Hong sisters comedy. In my book, this is a good thing. Yes, it goes overboard a little. But because of the abundant sense of humor, this lands it in corny-awesome territory for me, not corny-embarrassing. Jang Geun-seok (and the rest of the group, actually) is perfectly cast. Park...

My Fair Lady: Episode 15
by | October 7, 2009 | 81 Comments
I know, at this point it’s probably more “appropriate” to post a pic of our main couple… but eh, whatever. This one is very cute. Episode 15 makes me sorry for all of us who were holding out hope for an exciting ending, because this episode was rather boring. Things that should have been heart-tugging... More »

Smile: Episodes 1 & 2
by | October 6, 2009 | 69 Comments
SBS’s new weekend drama Smile (or Smile, You) got off to a brisk start and seems to be poised to do decently. Is it wildly innovative or surprising? No — but it IS refreshing and fun. Like with so many romantic storylines in dramas, the lovelines here are obvious and expected, but the chemistry between... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 14
by | October 1, 2009 | 91 Comments
Like the past three (or so) episodes, I think Episode 14 is rife with weird, illogical moments. But unlike the past three episodes, at least this one has a couple of nice, conflict-ridden scenes to make up for it. No, it doesn’t make up for all of the shortcomings, but there were a couple bits... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 13
by | September 30, 2009 | 65 Comments
I wish My Fair Lady would go full-on crazy, because even though they’re halfway there already, the drama’s still clinging to the semblance of a conventional trendy series. I think at this point they’d do better to have fun running wild with the nonsense rather than struggling to play it straight. I didn’t think this... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 12
by | September 24, 2009 | 96 Comments
Was it just me, or were the last ten minutes of this episode the weirdest, choppiest, awkwardest sequence of scenes ever? They came across tacked-on and badly edited. Totally felt out of step with the rest of the episode, which marred an otherwise significant ending scene. SONG OF THE DAY Lee Soo-young – “추억 안녕”... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 11
by | September 23, 2009 | 63 Comments
I’m sorry to say this, because I think My Fair Lady is definitely the better series, but there’s something about it that reminds me quite a lot of Witch Amusement, that hot mess of nonsensical repetition and confusion. I like this drama a lot more, but I can’t help seeing the similarities between them. But... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 10
by | September 17, 2009 | 66 Comments
Another enjoyable episode, although I have to admit it didn’t top Episode 9 for me. Still, the drama is starting to feel solid, and although it comes a little late for my liking, I’m finally at a point where I’m rewatching episodes and getting emotionally invested. SONG OF THE DAY Kim Yoon-ah – “Girl Talk.”... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 9
by | September 16, 2009 | 87 Comments
Ooh, GOOD EPISODE! Best episode so far. I know some people feel that Yoon Sang-hyun was miscast, but he and Yoon Eun-hye both have great expressive eyes, independently and together, and this episode was a total tortured eyefest. Ew, that sounds gross. You know what I mean. I also find that both Yoons are pretty... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 8
by | September 10, 2009 | 43 Comments
We are now officially halfway through My Fair Lady, and although this means we get an inexplicably less flattering hairdo for Jung Il-woo, at least the plot heats up! (Perhaps they purposely sabotaged Jung Il-woo’s appearance to sway us subconsciously toward Dong-chan?) SONG OF THE DAY Na Yoon-kwon – “심장소리” (Heart sound, or Heartbeat) [... More »
