Wish Upon a Star: Episode 15
by | March 1, 2010 | 59 Comments
Not the best episode; I thought it felt rather flat, particularly compared to the many adorable moments we’ve seen in recent weeks. There are a couple of reasons for this, namely: too much Jae-young, not enough kids. That, and almost everyone annoyed in this episode, except Pal-gang. (The kids don’t count, because they weren’t really... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry: Episode 10
by | February 28, 2010 | 69 Comments
This drama just keeps speaking to me — I can really relate to its characters and situations in a way that I generally can’t in most other dramas. I’m not 34 (yet!) and I don’t work in any of these professions and I’m not nearly as glam and awesome as these ladies, but the situations... More »

Chuno: Episode 11

No, no, noooooooo! The ink on the Episode 7 recap (where we saw Un-Nyun dropping her beloved Choco) is barely dry when Un-Nyun has moved onto stroking Jagger, the zhanmadao saber favored by Song Tae-Ha. Well, that answers the question of how long “true love” lasts these days in epic sa-geuks – ohhhh, about 3... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 14

Could these two be any more adorable? And to think, when the drama first aired, silly Pa-rang was my least favorite sibling. (For shame.) In keeping with this drama’s pattern, there are so many cute, funny, heartwarming moments that it’s too bad that there are other hateful characters muddying up the plot. On the other... More »

Hi, Dahee here. Hjkomo asked me to fill in for her for recapping episode ten, as she really does like her beauty sleep and would like to get back to doing it. I happily agreed, so here I am. No worries – she’ll be back for episode twelve (and Samsooki for eleven). Ten episodes in,... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 13

Yay, it’s back! I suppose absence does make the heart grow fonder, because a week off with no new Wish Upon a Star episodes really whetted my appetite for a new one today. Also: I’ve been meaning to mention it for a while now, but I love baby Nami. Often the baby of a drama... More »

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry: Episode 9

Okay, it’s official; this drama has made me its bitch. If I were watching it post-season, it would be one sixteen-hour run with a bedpan, a caffeine drip, and a case of that rice wine they’re always drinking. True to form, we breeze right past the bet storyline in one episode, and now we get... More »

Hero: Episode 6

For some reason, while watching this episode, Big Bang’s “Lie” kept running through my head….(I have a bit of a boy band addiction….) Fan girl moment….sort of! I’ve found the one look Lee Junki CAN’T pull off…Depressed Scruffy! Kudos to him for being willing to do it and make it work! SONG OF THE DAY... More »

I thought a long time about how I wanted to start off this last recap for IRIS: First off, I want to thank javabeans for giving me this opportunity to write a recap and contribute to her site. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity as an avid fan of her site and as a... More »

Chuno: Episode 9

What does a General do in the forest? In what has become a Chuno drama series’ tradition, the even number episodes that end the weekly doublet have left viewers strung out and anxiously waiting for their next hit. Chuno Episode 8 cut off right as Song Tae Ha has been uncovered as a runaway slave... More »
