javabeans: We resume with Ji-woo and Seo-jin on separate trips for the day, with Ji-woo accompanying Soon-jae and Gu halbaes as they tour some ruins.

by | April 28, 2015 | 20 Comments
javabeans: We resume in Meteora, and the party huffs and puffs their way up the many many stairs that take them to the top of the hillside. It’s funny how it’s a little sad to watch the halbaes struggling, until you cut over to Ji-woo who seems in worse shape than them as she staggers... More »

javabeans: We pick up at bedtime, and there’s an extended beat showing Soon-jae halbae in bed, reading, and falling asleep in the middle of it. I swear, grandpas yawning is like animals yawning — just inexplicably cute. girlfriday: I know, so cute. And then Seo-jinnie comes in to tuck Soon-jae halbae into bed, and it’s... More »

javabeans: We’re back! So the first episode was a mega-hit, both among public opinion and with the ratings, which averaged 10% and hit a high of 12.5%. I enjoyed reading the handful of news articles that were clearly trying to stir a tempest in a teapot by suggesting that the disproportionate attention on Ji-woo and... More »

Yes, yes, and yes. While today might be a day dedicated to securing a win for Suk-jin, I’d be lying if I said my eyes weren’t drawn in by all the pretty on my screen. It turns out that making sure Suk-jin wins is much harder than trying to beat him at the game, but... More »

javabeans: The halbaes are back! It feels like we’ve been off the Na PD train for a while, but really, it was just the one show (Three Meals a Day). girlfriday: And even that show, we watched most of. It was just less interesting to recap on an episode-by-episode basis. javabeans: So we open with... More »

Virgins empowered in tvN comedy The Superman Age
by | March 30, 2015 | 31 Comments
When I first heard about The Superman Age, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the comedy about characters developing superpowers if they hit the age of 25 with their virginity intact — it sounded fun, but would it be slapstick? Lowbrow? Gag comedy? What I didn’t expect was for it to be utterly deadpan... More »
