Best Love: Episode 8

Is it possible to love two men at the same time? I really think my heart might explode from trying to decide. I might perish in the metaphor soup that is this drama first, but whadduya gonna do? I love metaphor soup. It’s hearty and delicious, and good for the... More »

47th Baeksang Arts Awards

It’s too bad that Hyun Bin was missing from the 47th Baeksang Arts Awards, since he and his drama picked up a bunch of awards. (Alas, there’s that whole mandatory military thing.) Not only did he grab a Daesang in the TV portion (film Daesang went to Lee Byung-heon for... More »

City Hunter: Episode 1
by | May 26, 2011 | 241 Comments
Ooh, I like. Despite my frequent ribbing of this show, to be honest I was hoping it would be good — the enjoyment of a good show always outweighs the fun of making fun of a bad one. Always. So I was hoping that City Hunter’s pre-show identity crisis was... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 6
by | May 24, 2011 | 341 Comments
Aaaack, this drama is so sadistic – I feel like a yo-yo. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I’m just watching super passively, because there’s nothing that happens that’s unexpected or new. We just keep circling one plot point over and over again, in slightly different iterations. But then one thing... More »
