Coffee House: Page 1
by | May 18, 2010 | 156 Comments
I rarely have such a positive reaction to a drama after just one hour, but I’ll say it: I loved the first episode of Coffee House. More than I was expecting, in fact. I’d been keeping my expectations down — didn’t want to be disappointed again — which I was... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 13
by | May 17, 2010 | 69 Comments
Another emotion-packed episode, parts of which I loved and other parts which I did not love at all. Seems this is becoming a pattern for me with his drama — it’s like these two extremes are growing ever farther apart, so that the heart-wrenching parts of each episode are enough... More »

Oh My Lady: Episode 16 (Final)
by | May 17, 2010 | 967 Comments
Ah, the end is here! I suspect this episode made most if not all fans very happy, as it tied up the plot in a light-hearted but satisfactory way that was in keeping with the tone of the drama. It’s too bad that things didn’t get really compelling until about... More »

Prosecutor Princess: Episode 14
by | May 17, 2010 | 64 Comments
I have one word to describe this episode: FRUSTRATING! It was frustrating on several levels, all of which I understood for the sake of Angst (who won’t go away) and for the sake of developing characters. But let’s also put it this way: I watched it with a fellow non-Korean... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 14
by | May 16, 2010 | 103 Comments
This episode entitled “Taming My Woman”…Oh No You Di’n’t, Show. I almost turned you off after the title sequence. But given that this is a topic of discussion and debate between the characters rather than a straight-up account of events, I won’t launch into a diatribe. Unless provoked. All of... More »
