Painter of the Wind: Episode 3
by | October 11, 2008 | 24 Comments
Painter of the Wind continues to impress, despite a few flaws here and there. I officially want to marry Moon Geun Young. SONG OF THE DAY Sam Roberts – “A Stone Would Cry Out.” Dahee says: “It’s by one of my favourite Canadian rockers, from his album ‘Chemical City’.” [ Download ] Tags: Moon Geun-young,... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 13

LOL, and I mean that literally: this was a laugh-out-loud episode, with a number of unexpectedly quirky-funny moments. A lot happened to move our stories along and close a few loops. I know that Conflict is at the heart of Drama, but I always cringe when my characters go through hell even though I know... More »

Beethoven Virus: Episode 9

Oh, Twilight trailer at 1:55, you have got to be kidding me. On to official business! If I have not mentioned it before, let it be known to all now: Kim Myung Min is made of awesome. Screencaps belong to Luv. I miss my Kang Gun Woo interaction. D: SONG OF THE DAY Beethoven Virus... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 12

(Don’t worry, it’s a faux-swoon.) This was an interesting episode in that the tone was different, and the pacing too — and we finally got to see Hyun-soo sweat a little. It may seem mean to cheer at that, but: YAY! SONG OF THE DAY EZ Hyoung – “유성” (shooting star) [ Download ] Tags:... More »

Painter of the Wind: Episode 2

Y’know, Moon Chae Won is pretty hot, despite her lack of acting ability. And Moon Geun Young is so boyish here, I often forget that she’s a girl. So when the two get together, I almost forget that they’re actually two girls with some pretty crackling chemistry. …Almost, but not quite. At last, Korea dips... More »

Sorry for the (relative) lateness of the recap! I’ve had, shall we say, a busy week. :/ SONG OF THE DAY Lim Jeong-hee – “사랑의 반대말” (The opposite of love) [ Download ] Tags: Kim Ji-hoon, Kim Min-hee, Love & Marriage... More »

Beethoven Virus: Episode 8

Was blown around by the wind today. Side-effect of being short and little, I guess. There were so many excellent screencaps for this episode I was hard put to choose. A round of applause for Luv, please. He works so hard, our Kang mae. (Feel v. stalker-y, but could not resist this picture.) SONG OF... More »

[When I asked for potential recappers of The Painter of Wind (or Painter of the Wind), I was lucky enough to get Dahee Fanel onboard for recaps, so I hope you'll all enjoy her write-ups! Another reader, heejae, will also be weighing in on her very insightful thoughts of the first episode in another post.... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 10

I’m actually liking the side characters more as we progress… Don’t get me wrong, the main relationship is the whole point of this drama, but I’m warming up to Kyung-hwan, and even — surprisingly — Kang-hyun’s mother. Maybe I just like immature characters? SONG OF THE DAY Kim Yeon-woo – “이미 넌 고마운 사람” (Already... More »

Gourmet: Episode 24 (Final)
by | September 29, 2008 | 47 Comments
Instead of another foodpr0n montage, I thought it would be fitting to do something a little different for this last episode. Gourmet really has been, all along, more about execution than inventiveness (ordinary events, but depicted well), and this is once again exemplified in Episode 24. To wit: I could sum up the episode in... More »
