Beethoven Virus: Episode 6

BV tends to err on the side of the predictable, but it’s an enjoyable watch, nonetheless. Que l’amour est beau! As always, many thanks to Luv for lending her screencaps. SONG OF THE DAY Loptimist – “Ghostwrite” [ Download ] Tags: Beethoven Virus, Jang Geun-seok, Kim Myung-min, Lee Jia... More »

Beethoven Virus: Episode 5

Have tried to make the recap more coherent instead of jumping from scene to scene, as is my wont. Screencaps credit to Luv. KMM, the consummate conductor.

Love & Marriage: Episode 9
by | September 24, 2008 | 36 Comments
There’s usually one noteworthy episode that marks the turning point in a drama, and for Love & Marriage, this was it. Squeeeee! There’s a difference between an “OMG, romantic, sweet, kissy ooh!” squee, and an “Aww, yeah, The Drama has kicked in” squee. For the first eight episodes, it’s been the former: a light, fluffy...

Gourmet: Episode 23
by | September 22, 2008 | 7 Comments
As though to make up for the lack in recent episodes, there’s lots and lots of food in this episode. And that means lots and lots of food analysis! Mmm, my favorite kind of analysis. Apart from actually eating. SONG OF THE DAY Gourmet OST – “그대 좋아하는 계절이 와요” (The season you like is... More »

Tazza: Episode 1
by | September 21, 2008 | 11 Comments
You know, I fully expected to dislike Tazza. I didn’t have many expectations, and I doubted that the drama version would be able to effectively capture what made the film version such a hit — I imagined it would be what you might expect if you had to cut down The Sopranos to air on... More »

Gourmet: Episode 22
by | September 21, 2008 | 23 Comments
Not as much foodie talk today, as you can see. Or, I should say, there’s not as much literal cooking going on, although food is still our main source of concern, what with Oonamjeong’s fate hanging in the balance. Also, is it me, or are Kim Rae-won‘s shirts suddenly a lot tighter? Not that I’m... More »

Beethoven Virus: Episode 4

GRR. Did you know that some companies in China are adding fertilizer to their baby formula? I mean, I am not a nutritionist, but I’m pretty fucking sure that infants (or normal adults) are not meant to withstand pure nitrogen/phosphorus/potassium salts. It’s one thing when big companies knowingly coerce third world governments into distributing baby... More »

Was asked by random stranger for places to purchase cosmetics. Realized that I actually don’t know. Sevenses = PHAIL at being a girl. Bae Yong Gi, of cabaret trumpet fame. SONG OF THE DAY Persona – “Ending” [ Download ] Tags: Beethoven Virus, Jang Geun-seok, Kim Myung-min, Lee Jia... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 7

Park Ki-woong (Kyung-hwan), above, is still an uneven actor, being rather green. He’s prone to overexaggeration, but he does have the funniest facial expressions in the drama (almost all of them sulky, angry, or frowny). I’d like to see him work on his subtlety and line delivery, because sometimes he can be hilarious. I am... More »

Omg so tired. At what point does a midterm stop being a midterm? (And how is it a midterm if I have 3 in one term??) I know that what they’re doing onscreen isn’t what it actually looks like, and many times it’s even off sync, but I think you might want to cut them... More »
