Triple: Episode 2
by | June 12, 2009 | 48 Comments
As I said in the Episode 1 recap, Triple is very cute. It’s got a very similar style and sensibility to Coffee Prince, so if you’re looking for something along those lines, you’re in luck. The music is again a standout feature, both well-chosen and diverse (with a mix of... More »

TRIPLE DAY IS HERE!!! NOTE: Thursday saw the broadcast of both Episodes 1 and 2. All along I had planned on recapping both of them in one introductory post, since it would save time and probably work out well given the airing schedule… but I liked Episode 1 a lot... More »

Story of a Man: Episode 18
by | June 11, 2009 | 36 Comments
I don’t think the above image is meant to be unsettling, and it wasn’t necessarily so in the context of the scene… but when sorting through all the screencaps for this episode, it jumped out at me as being eerie and meaningful: Do-woo and Eun-soo about to join hands in... More »

Into the White Night marks Go Soo’s screen comeback
by | June 10, 2009 | 27 Comments
I first heard of Into the White Night (literally Baekyahaeng: Walk Into the White Darkness or 백야행 — 하얀 어둠속을 걷다) last year, when lead actress Sohn Ye-jin was cast, and filed it away as something to look forward to. I like Sohn, but it was the plot that caught... More »

Lee Dong-wook is a playboy and a snob
by | June 10, 2009 | 41 Comments
Law drama Partner really is promoting itself strongly, isn’t it? I suppose it doesn’t hurt that it’s got such good-looking actors (although, really, what kdrama doesn’t?). Here we see some more photos of lead actor Lee Dong-wook as his playboyish, sarcastic lawyer character Tae-jo. Naturally he’ll clash with the quick-tempered... More »
