by | March 31, 2012 | 64 Comments
High Kick 3 finally comes to an end! It both feels like it’s whizzed by in a blur and taken forever. It’s because the stories tend to fly right by, cute and brisk and moving right along to make room for more good stuff without belaboring points. But when you step back and take a... More »

EPISODE 379. Broadcast on March 25, 2012. javabeans: The guys make it up the mountain to the flag, going past their deadline to secure two outdoor sleeping spots tonight.

High Kick 3: Episodes 115-119
by | March 24, 2012 | 27 Comments
Wow, one more week to go. I’ve enjoyed High Kick 3 a lot more than I thought I would, but I think I’m ready to let go of these characters — almost — since it also feels like I’ve been watching this show forever. I hope that the upcoming finale week wraps up everybody in... More »

Ryu Jin dorks out for Standby
by | March 20, 2012 | 40 Comments
This cracks me up: Ryu Jin, who’s so great at playing cold and serious, grins like a huge ol’ dork as the wannabe news anchor for MBC’s sitcom Standby. Ah, he of the big dreams and the questionable fashion sense. (Those pants. They make me laugh.) There’s also the bumbling on-air presence, since he chokes... More »

High Kick 3: Episodes 110-114
by | March 17, 2012 | 35 Comments
If that screencap doesn’t get your curiosity firing, I don’t know what will. Ha. What could possibly explain it? Has High Kick lost its mind? Or maybe that’s just Seung-yoon. Heads-up: The show will be getting three extra episodes, but it’s not a noteworthy addition; this is standard procedure for dailies to fill out the... More »
