Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 8
by | September 29, 2010 | 251 Comments
Dear Dr. Quinn, Is it possible to die of: (a) too much hiccupping; (b) curiosity and fright; (c) broken ideals; or (d) having one’s pride slashed to pieces? If yes to any of the above, please hurry to SKK as quickly as possible. There are four strapping young men (?) in need of your attention.... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 7

Excuse me, I’ve got a serious problem. Very serious indeed. I have a severe case of dry mouth. Do you know why, dear reader? Oh I think you know…I’m sure you have it too. It’s because I can’t seem to close my mouth during the whole hour this godforsaken drama enraptures me!!! I’m too busy... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 8
by | September 26, 2010 | 341 Comments
Episode 7 was the first one I connected with on an emotional level (there was something in my eye, I swear), so I had higher expectations going into 8. We’re definitely in a better place than previous weeks, and I do think that this show actually improves from week to week. Truthfully, it still hasn’t... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 15
by | September 25, 2010 | 34 Comments
WHEEEE! This series reminds me of Stars Falling From the Sky, where the cute and happy parts were winning, the melodrama kind of odd, the story meandering, and the drama overall a fun roller coaster ride. I know there’s still one more episode left, so for now I’ll just keep my judgments to: WHEEEE!!!! SONG... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 14
by | September 24, 2010 | 239 Comments
Episode 13’s game-changer was a tough act to follow for sure, and I was a little worried that we’d sap all the dramatic tension out of the story once all the rules went out the window. Thankfully, the dramatic tension still abounds, but sadly, it means that the old rules just get replaced with new... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 13

Oh, My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho just kicked it up a notch. Yeah, I cried like a baby in Episode 13. Ratings-wise, this week was a real hit, since Baker King is out of the picture. Numbers shot up to 15.2% for Episode 13, then even more to 19.2% for Episode 14, which aired back... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 6

Dear Moony and Yummy Faction members, Thank you for your peaceful and harmonious alliance. It is indeed near impossible to choose between two very attractive men, and no one should be forced into that situation (at least not in K-drama Land). I hope your relationship stays strong – as strong as the friendship between Gul-oh... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 7

This episode had more than one plotline going on, but there was a general arc to the emotional progressions, so overall I was happy with it. I’m liking the characters more and more, and although He-ra is in the role of the hateful romance-spoiler, Lee Shi-young is playing her with this interesting mix of confidence,... More »

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 5
by | September 22, 2010 | 170 Comments
If the first two episodes were ruled by the ever charming and forever bored Gu Yong-ha, then episodes 3-6 were completely dominated by Moon Jae-shin aka Guh-ro. His bad boy/good boy persona has most fangirls swooning, including me! Not to take away from Yong-ha, who is just as cute and charming as always, but I... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 4
by | September 21, 2010 | 47 Comments
OH MAN. This episode is sofa king good. Not only is it plotted tightly, staying one step (or, let’s face it, five) ahead of us, dropping well-placed hints, it has a strong emotional throughline. Despite having the most intense plot yet, it’s also the funniest episode thus far. I laughed, I cried, I gaped in... More »
