Triple: Episode 8
by | July 12, 2009 | 71 Comments
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 »

Triple: Episode 7
by | July 7, 2009 | 66 Comments
I am really liking this drama. I wonder if those who are disappointed in Triple were expecting something more trendy, something more Coffee Prince-ish. It doesn’t have the angst or intensity of Coffee Prince, but I’m not disappointed with Triple at all. Rather than comparing to CP, I get more of a My Sweet Seoul... More »

The Man Who Can’t Get Married: Episode 1

First of all, much thanks to Javabeans for letting me commandeer her site so I could post these recaps and putting up with all my questions. Second, I have to say that I’m really enjoying this show much more than I expected. I am watching the show ahead of where I’m writing my recaps, so... More »

Triple: Episode 6
by | July 2, 2009 | 60 Comments
I think Episode 6 was the best episode so far, although I haven’t seen 7 yet so I can’t speak to this week’s episodes. Dramas that have “themed” episodes can go either way, because if a writer takes the theme too far, it can be overbearing in forcing the events to match the theme. I... More »

Partner: Episode 1
by | June 25, 2009 | 72 Comments
Partner got off to its start this week, and it was kind of like I expected: flawed but fairly entertaining. Not a fabulous story, and there are some pretty big plot holes, but the acting keeps it afloat. I hadn’t realized just how much I’d missed Lee Dong-wook — but he is SO enjoyable. SONG... More »

Triple: Episode 5

Another cute episode with a lot of cute scenes. I think Triple is starting to settle into its groove — it’s not all the way there yet, but storylines are starting to flow a little more, I think. It’s also a pleasure to watch a drama that is refreshing and breezy, with a little bit... More »

Story of a Man: Episode 20 (Final)
by | June 21, 2009 | 90 Comments
Ohhhhh, what a freaking great way to go out! I was afraid the ending wouldn’t live up to the series, especially with all the snippets of spoilers floating around… but I loved it. I can see why some might have wanted something different, but I thought it was quite fitting. SONG OF THE DAY 8eight... More »

Triple: Episode 4
by | June 18, 2009 | 61 Comments
Overall, I am really enjoying this show and appreciate the casting, but I think I’m having a problem with Su-in (or is the issue with Lee Hana?). I haven’t decided whether it’s purely a character thing or an acting thing, but if Su-in were one of the seven dwarves, she’d be Mopey. But at least... More »
