by | October 28, 2010 | 21 Comments
This episode sure focuses on the take-over side of the plot, and I love that it doesn’t bother me. It is still fun, interesting and vibrant. And therein lay Tamra’s charm. Tags: featured, Hwang Chan-bin, Im Joo-hwan, Seo Woo, Tamra the Island... More »

by | October 28, 2010 | 63 Comments
There can never be too many good frothy-cute romantic comedies out there, as far as I’m concerned (operative word being good), so I’m looking forward to the upcoming movie Finding Kim Jong-wook, which stars two very talented and charismatic actors, Im Soo-jung (I’m Sorry, I Love You) and Gong Yoo...

Home Sweet Home starts off with brisk story, slow ratings
by | October 27, 2010 | 20 Comments
It was a slowish beginning, ratings-wise, for MBC’s new “Korean Desperate Housewives” series Home Sweet Home, which I’d previously called by its literal translation, My Happy Home. Wednesday’s premiere improved upon its predecessor, Playful Kiss (which averaged 3.5% for its 16-episode run), but not by much, drawing a 6.4%. On... More »

by | October 26, 2010 | 130 Comments
Posters are out for Mary Stayed Out All Night, which premieres in two weeks. Frankly, I think the fan-made versions are much cuter, and more creative. But I think the main lesson to take away from this is: WTF are you wearing, boys? (I have the feeling that’s going to... More »
