Bad Guy: Episode 6
by | July 7, 2010 | 52 Comments
Switcheroo this week — I’ll do 6, and girlfriday takes on 7. Bad Guy continues to fly under the radar, which is sort of a shame — not because it’s better than some shows that are getting better ratings (that’s always going to happen to somebody), but because SBS has really knocked this one around....

I suspect that there’ll be a lot of fan love for this episode for the most obvious reason, but I really enjoyed this episode because it finally pushes Jin-soo out of his stubborn emotional denial phase and into self-awareness. Finally, we get to see him being honest — not just with Eun-young, but also with... More »

I’ve read a lot of comments maligning Jin-soo, but I’ve got to say, I LOVE him — as a character. As a person, he’s frustrating and selfish and infuriating, but as a character? Rich, complex, and intriguing. He’s showing a lot more depth than we could have guessed at the start, when he was all... More »

Oh, it’s good to have Coffee House back. Unfortunately, the four-episode postponement most certainly did set the drama’s ratings back, nearly halving them. It was performing in the 9% to 10% range, but this episode dropped things to a 5.9%. (Giant didn’t have as big a drop — only about 1%, landing at 12.8% —... More »

First Impressions: Road No. 1
by | June 28, 2010 | 76 Comments
I neither hate war epics nor do I love them. I neither anticipated this drama nor dreaded it. So when I say I came into this with zero expectations, I mean it literally. I know there’s a lot of hype surrounding this drama, but me? I’m not about the hype. In my book, either the... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 5
by | June 21, 2010 | 61 Comments
Bad Guy is back this week! is apparently postponed again this week. Sigh. Although I appreciated having the time off from new recaps last week, I have to admit that not having the pressure of a new episode made it harder to recap this one, since I am nothing if not a procrastinator. But with... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 4
by | June 17, 2010 | 40 Comments
Hey, girlfriday here with a little cloak and dagger to kick off the summer season. No new episodes this week, but here’s a recap to tide you over. So far this show has the winning appeal of being aesthetically beautiful—this is some slick, slick stuff—and I don’t just mean the very good-looking cast. It’s not... More »

God of Study: Episode 10

Hyun-jung’s last time depending on Baek-hyun. This episode was a clean finish for the Baek-Jung storyline. After this I think the drama can move much faster. I’m sorry to all the Baek-Jung fans out there, heh. Tags: Bae Doo-na, Go Ah-sung, God of Study, Kim Su-ro, Yoo Seung-ho... More »

A picture says a thousand words, doesn’t it? I could tell from the way the Episode 7 recap went that the fan fervor would increase for this episode, which surely delivered. Aside from the laughs and the chemistry between the actors, one thing I’m really loving about this drama is the loaded conversations — there... More »

What a fun episode. I was rolling with laughter at some parts, and also feeling loads of sympathy at others — this drama has managed to make everyone pretty darned likable, in my opinion. I know there have been a lot of heated comments pitting the two actresses (and characters) against each other, which (sadly)... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 20 (Final)

I don’t know if it’s me, but I’m just not hitting it off with finales this time around. [It is SO NOT just you. –javabeans] It’s just, when you think about it…you’ve spent sixteen, or TWENTY friggin episodes in the will-they-or-won’t-they-oh-god-they-won’t-even-get-close, and speak!-please-for-the-love-of-all-that-is-holy-speak! So it’s not asking for too much to be rewarded at the... More »
