It seems the majority of the people who like God of Study mostly liked it for the kids and their interactions with each other. So I decided to focus more on the little things they do and make the…dragging parts less significant. Tags: Bae Doo-na, Go Ah-sung, God of Study,... More »

by | May 29, 2010 | 98 Comments
I think I have to start out with an apology, because I’m just so emotionally checked out of this drama that I can’t tell a good episode apart from a bad one anymore. I’ve read a lot of comments about how Episode 17 is so much better than the previous... More »
