Wish Upon a Star: Episode 5
by | January 23, 2010 | 86 Comments
All right, all right, so I lied (twice). I honestly didn’t think I’d feel compelled to continue recapping this drama, and I expected youth hit God of Study and/or light-n-sweet Pasta to trump the good-natured Wish Upon a Star.

by | January 22, 2010 | 136 Comments
I think this is going to be my last Pasta recap. I’m enjoying this series for the chemistry between Lee Seon-kyun and Gong Hyo-jin and I still think that there are solid elements to this drama, but given the landscape at the moment, it’s just not commanding my attention. I’ll... More »

Great episode! I’m so glad I didn’t let yesterday’s episode bum me out too much, because there were a lot of fantastic moments in this episode, which was a particularly nice one for Go Soo. (I know there have been some comments complaining that all he does is glare silently;... More »

I think this ought to make a few people happy! Im Joo-hwan is in the February issue of men’s magazine Arena, and he’s looking pretty good. One article calls the look masculine and even “macho,” but I think he looks more pretty to me. You know, while some fashion mag... More »
