by | March 3, 2014 | 107 Comments
Hi everyone! I’m purplecow, and I’ll also be covering Sly and Single Again. We’ve had two episodes to introduce the characters and set the mood, and while I can’t say I’m completely hooked, I’m looking forward to good things ahead. In Episode 2 we learn a little more about how Jung-woo went from spurned ex-husband... More »

Emergency Couple: Episode 11
by | March 3, 2014 | 105 Comments
We get some questions answered in this episode, in regards to baby daddies and who is having feelings for whom, and all I can say is: It’s about time. Our hero stops fooling himself about his feelings, and our heroine might, just might, be having a few feelings herself. EPISODE 11 RECAP Tags: Choi Jin-hyuk,... More »

There’s a cherished law in rom-com dramaland: A jealous hero makes for a childish hero, and amusing hijinks must always ensue. And that is exactly what happens in this episode—along with realizations of what such jealousy must mean. But the childish antics are balanced with those little gestures that speak of earnestness and love, and... More »

Age of Feeling: Episode 14
by | March 1, 2014 | 44 Comments
Our hero wins over the hearts of the people through a simple act of violence, though I’m sure the fact that they were already predisposed to love him certainly helped. While most of the gang politics tend to revolve around Jung-tae and the role he’ll play in Shanghai’s future, it’s kind of funny just how... More »

Wonderful Season: Episodes 1-2
by | March 1, 2014 | 59 Comments
Wonderful Season is the new KBS weekend family drama that began last weekend, and as noted, it’s a hit right out of the gates. It had a good lead-in with KBS’s previous ratings blockbuster King’s Family, but don’t expect anything like that show in this one (a great thing, by anyone’s measure)—Wonderful Season is thoughtful,...

Age of Feeling: Episode 13

While not returning to the glory days of yore, this episode showed a marked improvement toward focusing on the things that actually matter, and less on the stuff no one cares about. Our hero actually takes some action this episode, even if it means going to the dark side to rule the world and avenge... More »

It’s overrrrrrrr, we can all resume breathing now. You From Another Star ended today, and I admit to going into the finale still wondering how the heck they would get our couple out of their cosmic fix. There are a few spots I think got glossed over, but I’m left with a solid appreciation for... More »

Full Sun: Episode 4
by | February 26, 2014 | 29 Comments
Let me tell you that dealing with a hero who can fly off the handle at any given moment is both ridiculously scary and absolutely fascinating, and Se-ro manages to achieve that balance with such finesse that there are times when I get actual shivers down my spine. I also don’t think any of us... More »

I Need Romance 3: Episode 14
by | February 25, 2014 | 89 Comments
It finally happens—our heroine feels feelings she can put a name to and figures out what she wants. Of course in true Joo-yeon fashion, she takes the long way around and then some. This is the downside to having a thick outer shell—the harder the shell, the harder you have to throw yourself against the... More »
