Yoon Jin-seo teams with Kim Jung-hoon in Punchline
by | June 2, 2011 | 13 Comments
A year after starring in the I-fell-in-love-with-twins, melo-mystery movie Secret Love, Yoon Jin-seo is taking a lighter approach with her next film project: She’s starring in Punchline, a human comedy that sounds like it straddles the line between thoughtful and light-hearted. Yoon Jin-seo plays the aide to an upright, moral... More »

MUCH cooler stills from Warrior Baek Dong-soo
by | June 2, 2011 | 58 Comments
Now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ ’bout. I wasn’t too keen on the first stills we saw from the action/fusion sageuk Warrior Baek Dong-soo — and based on comments, you weren’t either — but I held out hope that the drama would prove itself to be dynamic and entertaining. And while... More »

Best Love: Episode 9
by | June 1, 2011 | 338 Comments
Did they switch the cameras all of a sudden? Because this episode is GORGEOUS. As if I didn’t love this drama enough already. Angst can sometimes be frustrating, sometimes satisfying. This is my favorite kind, when it moves the plot — and the emotions, and the character development — swiftly... More »

Miss Ripley: Episode 2
by | May 31, 2011 | 147 Comments
I like. It’s definitely not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, since it’s a melodrama through and through. But I find the premise highly addictive—and strangely, easy to identify with, despite the dramatics. I find myself rooting for a heroine to lie, cheat, and steal, which is ODD, to... More »

It’s official: Eric’s post-army comeback drama will not be the action-packed Poseidon but instead the lively spy romance Myung-wol the Spy (as previously rumored), co-starring Han Ye-seul.

Lie To Me: Episode 8 Open Thread
by | May 31, 2011 | 310 Comments
This episode in a nutshell (or, as I like to think of it, the weecap): Ah-jung takes care of Ki-joon when he’s sick (food-poisoned by her leftovers). She’s miffed when he doesn’t reply to her text, so Ki-joon admits that he didn’t know how to reply — if he said... More »

Romance Town: Episode 6
by | May 31, 2011 | 121 Comments
I think this episode had a lot less going on. It provided more revelations into the side characters, and it’s the official formation of a love triangle. OH THE ANGST. Sorry for the delay as well on this recap. There was something called a “Memorial Day Holiday” that I partook... More »

Lie To Me: Open Thread? Vote!

So the recapping verdict is in: Miss Ripley in, Lie To Me out. Girlfriday and I are satisfied with this choice, inasmuch as we know our physical limits despite wanting to cover every drama ever. (Okay, not every drama. But a good chunk of ‘em.) However, we realize there’s still... More »
