My Fair Lady: Episode 7
by | September 9, 2009 | 51 Comments
This was really Dong-chan’s episode to shine, and he did whenever he had to cast longing glances Hae-na’s way. I wish he would be equally strong in other scenes, though — the effect is sorta spoiled by overacting in other moments. Overall, though, Yoon Sang-hyun is doing a good job... More »

Triple: Episode 14
by | September 8, 2009 | 25 Comments
Two more episodes left… It’s almost odd how Triple is nearing its end but doesn’t feel like it’s winding down. Perhaps that’s because it’s already so meandering to begin with, and I don’t mean that as an insult. It’s that this drama is SO slice-of-life that you almost don’t see... More »

The drama makes its premiere this week as the new prime-time Wednesday-Thursday offering, and the production has just released a fresh set of stills.... More »
