Love & Marriage: Episode 12
by | October 8, 2008 | 28 Comments
(Don’t worry, it’s a faux-swoon.) This was an interesting episode in that the tone was different, and the pacing too — and we finally got to see Hyun-soo sweat a little. It may seem mean to cheer at that, but: YAY! SONG OF THE DAY EZ Hyoung – “유성” (shooting star) [ Download ] Tags:... More »

Painter of the Wind: Episode 2
by | October 5, 2008 | 25 Comments
Y’know, Moon Chae Won is pretty hot, despite her lack of acting ability. And Moon Geun Young is so boyish here, I often forget that she’s a girl. So when the two get together, I almost forget that they’re actually two girls with some pretty crackling chemistry. …Almost, but not quite. At last, Korea dips... More »

Sorry for the (relative) lateness of the recap! I’ve had, shall we say, a busy week. :/ SONG OF THE DAY Lim Jeong-hee – “사랑의 반대말” (The opposite of love) [ Download ] Tags: Kim Ji-hoon, Kim Min-hee, Love & Marriage... More »

Beethoven Virus: Episode 8
by | October 4, 2008 | 19 Comments
Was blown around by the wind today. Side-effect of being short and little, I guess. There were so many excellent screencaps for this episode I was hard put to choose. A round of applause for Luv, please. He works so hard, our Kang mae. (Feel v. stalker-y, but could not resist this picture.) SONG OF... More »

[When I asked for potential recappers of The Painter of Wind (or Painter of the Wind), I was lucky enough to get Dahee Fanel onboard for recaps, so I hope you'll all enjoy her write-ups! Another reader, heejae, will also be weighing in on her very insightful thoughts of the first episode in another post.... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 10

I’m actually liking the side characters more as we progress… Don’t get me wrong, the main relationship is the whole point of this drama, but I’m warming up to Kyung-hwan, and even — surprisingly — Kang-hyun’s mother. Maybe I just like immature characters? SONG OF THE DAY Kim Yeon-woo – “이미 넌 고마운 사람” (Already... More »

Gourmet: Episode 24 (Final)
by | September 29, 2008 | 47 Comments
Instead of another foodpr0n montage, I thought it would be fitting to do something a little different for this last episode. Gourmet really has been, all along, more about execution than inventiveness (ordinary events, but depicted well), and this is once again exemplified in Episode 24. To wit: I could sum up the episode in... More »

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 »

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

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...
